TIME IS RUNNING OUT
The purpose of this chapter is not to bring discourse or about what most people fear about the book of Revelation. However, it is to help you and them to understand that time is running out even according to what the apostles were writing about unto the Body of Christ made up of Jews and Gentiles about the coming days and that time is running out. Furthermore, to make it clear that time is running out fast the Lord Jesus Christ Revelation has made it a clear fact and we the servants of the Lord need to work hard and fast to proclaim His Revelation that we may help others to enter into eternal life and the joys of the Lord in the kingdom of heaven. Can you see today on every turn of the hand and everywhere things are different or things are ever changing more than they was fifty years ago for there is that part of the human mind screaming that something is not right, however we cannot seem to put our finger on it. The point of logic is this that the time of God’s prophetic words He gave unto His Son is rushing forward with an unstoppable force. Therefore, soldiers of the Lord it is time to saddle up and put on the armor of God and make ready for battle for time is running out.
My own personal feeling is that we are nearer to the very end than when we first accepted the Lord as are savior or when we first believed. Why do I believe this to be true? To answer this question, I have used my own personal feeling for this reason, for what the book of Revelation states about the coming days and the Second Coming of Christ. In addition, the words of the Holy Scriptures to my personal feelings is just like the count down when they send a rocket ship into space for the countdown of the coming days is not on our side. In addition, there are those individuals who preconceive within themselves the idea that they are not able to recognize the future of the church and what it is about to face in the great apostasy and the devastation it will bring according to the prophetic word of the prophets and apostles as well as the prophecy of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. Then I ask myself why? Then the Spirit of God brought to mind: When it comes right down to the bottom line, we the servants of the Lord are not on duty. Therefore, we the people of God need to be very cautious as to what we believe and what we do not believe to be true or one might state it in this manner that we need to be cautious to what we deny and what we reject as being true.
When it comes to beware of the coming days are, we blinded to what has been happening around us and continues to happen within the world and the church? In addition, can we grasp just even the most basic reality that time is running out or the end is upon us. Have we got so relaxed and fallen asleep that we cannot see what is obvious taking place around us? Let me use the church of Laodicea as my example for if this is the church age according to the message Jesus sent Laodicea is the last church and we are living that church in addition are we that church.
THE HOLY SCRIPTURES THAT MARKS THE COMING DAYS
From the Day of Pentecost and the outpouring of God’s Spirit upon all flesh was one of the greatest outpouring that there ever was, which brought about the ministry of the Holy Spirit to be the indwelling influence of God’s Spirit in mankind. Therefore, as the Spirit of Truth abounded in mankind, therefore, is the counterfeit spirit of Satan come masquerading as an angel of light 2 Corinthians 11:13. The outpouring of the Holy Spirit or the Spirit of God is the necessary element to bring understanding or judging what is of God and what is of Satan in these last days. The Lord and His apostle set the principle standard of what we are to walk in faith and the conversation of proclaiming the gospel and the word of God in our lives.
Now the apostle John in his epistles makes it clear that we are to try the spirits to see if they are of God 1 John 4:1-3. The truth is that these are the spirit that only pretends to have the Spirit of God in appearance only therefore it is a must to have the Holy Spirit indwelling in you for your protection. Yet the apostle John by the Spirit of God set a standard rule that we are to try the spirits, and yes, I believe that their other spirits that are working to confuse Christians with the influence that everything in the scriptures to make them believe that the scriptures contradict itself especially the book of Revelation regarding the coming days for they know their time is running out.
The apostle John in addition lets us know that every spirit that does not confess Christ has come in the flesh is not of God and this is the spirit of antichrist 1 John 4:2-3. I believe that with all honesty that this is a true mark of how to distinguish the false spirit or evil spirit that comes against you as well as the church. In addition, by using the true Spirit of God it is our helper which helps with seeing the appearance of the false and evil spirit of the power of darkness. The apostle John also goes on to state that many of these individuals who do not confess that Christ has not come in the flesh have gone out into the world.
I am using the words of the apostle John to make it clear that for every Christians today when it comes for us to be looking for signs or distinguishing marks: of a false spirit, a false Christ or a false prophet we should be in addition, looking for the distinguishing signs recorded in the book of Revelation showing us the coming days. When I talk about distinguishing signs it can also be interpreted as distinguishing marks of the coming days found in the Old Testament and the New Testament so with the help of God’s Spirit, I want to show you some of these distinguishing marks of what takes place in the coming days.
HERE ARE SEVEN MARKS OR SIGNS GIVEN IN THE FOUR GOSPELS
1 Many will come in the name of Christ and Christ said they will deceive many: Matthew 24:5; Mark 13:6; Luke 21:8
2 There will be wars and rumors of wars: Matthew 24:6-7; Mark 13:7-8; Luke 21:9-10
3 Nation will rise up against nations, and kingdom against kingdoms, there will be famines, pestilences, earthquakes in divers places and this is the beginning of
sorrow: Matthew 24:7-8; Mark 13:8; Luke 21:11
4 They shall deliver you up to be afflicted, and you shall be hated for my name sake: Matthew 24:9; Mark 13:9-11; Luke 21:12-15
5 Many shall be offended and shall betray one another: Matthew 24:10; Mark 13:12-13; Luke 21:16-17
6 Many false prophets shall appear and deceive many: Matthew 24:11
7 Because iniquity shall abound and many shall wax cold, but them that endure to the end shall be saved: Matthew 24:12-13; Mark 13:13; Luke 21:10 Now I have just given you a list of seven of the distinguishing marks or signs that marks the fierce persecution that will come in the coming days and this is found in the gospel of Christ not including the book of Revelation. Let me in addition, also addressed this list by stating it in this manner that we can dismiss all of these warnings by ignoring what is written in the Holy
Scriptures as well as the book of Revelation. It is up to you to consider what you want to do. As for my own personal thought is that we as Christians should seek out the purpose of why the Lord God gave this Divine Revelation unto His Son regarding the coming days or the signs and wonders that will deceive many in the last days because they have not read the warning signs. Again, I have given you just seven distinguishing marks which relates to the coming days which I believe is God’s way of revealing unto His servants the things that must take place shortly.
From my research and notes about the coming days we will deal with the most popular scriptures first of which most scholars, theologians and evangelist use when referring to the end times as well as other scriptures revealing the end times or the coming days. Personal reference notes of scriptures from the New Testament for you to consider: (Matthew 24:29-31; Matthew 24:36-37; 2 Peter 3:1-18; 1 Thessalonians 5:1-9; Matthew 24:14; Matthew 24:23-25; Matthew 24:21-22; Luke 21:23-24; John 3:16) In these scripture references in the gospel of Matthew 24, I believe that the whole chapter deals with the Lord’s prophetic words of the coming days and the signs of the coming days according to our Lord. In addition, let me remind you that our Lord is telling His disciples the answer to their question about when the end of the world would be.
There are many predictive passages in both the Old Testament as well as the New Testament and as we read these words from the Holy Scriptures the more, we will discover the unfolding events of the coming days. From the prophetic words found in the Old Testament was the beginning outline or the preface for the coming days which would bring a fuller understanding to the book of Revelation and the coming days. Then you can find in all of the gospels about the kingdom of heaven and the coming days in the parables of our Lord’s teaching. However, let us begin with the gospel of Matthew where the Lord Jesus Christ furthers the course of the unfolding days ahead that we the Body of Christ greatly need to understand about the coming days and the Second Coming of Christ.
There is a great truth which is hanging over our heads, about the coming days and to state the truth honestly time is running out. Therefore, it is with each passing year and each passing hour that the church’s walk of faith is fast running out or coming to a close, yet we have a desire to sound out, before it ends, however, we the servants of the Lord needs to take heed of warnings given in the gospels, the epistles, and the book of Revelation that time is running out. Then we need to consider this thought: For is this a reality in our midst today and that there is the need for an awaking of the foe that is within the church, however it is just not the sin that is presence the foes name is sleep which is taking place within the church or the hearts of many Christians. We find Christ warning came about this sleep in His parable of the ten virgins the wise and the foolish in Matthew 25:5-7. Therefore, I can only state what others before have stated or written to others through the work of the ministry in the church today “it is high time that we awake out of sleep.” “And as ye go, preach, saying, the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matthew 10:7 KJV)
In this text of scripture here in Matthew we find a direct command from the Lord to go preach the kingdom of heaven is at hand, so one might also interpret go and preach or pass the word of the coming days are at hand. You will also find in the gospel of Mark where it states that “the kingdom of God is at hand” Mark 1:15 this was during the time that John the Baptist was put in prison and the Lord came preaching the kingdom of God, Mark 1:14. In both of these verses of scriptures from my understanding is that Christ spoke a direct command that the kingdom of heaven and kingdom of God was at hand and we were to preach the holy word the kingdom of heaven is at hand. If the kingdom of heaven was at hand then how much closer is it today? Therefore, the Lord was speaking of the coming days then and for them to believe in the gospel as well as the Lord is telling the church today to believe the prophetic word of the book of Revelation.
Therefore, as we further write in this chapter let me begin with this note: What I have read many times from many different writers or interpreters about the Holy Scriptures which they state that there is much misinterpretation regarding, Israel, the church, and the last days. Yes, I can agree that completely for there is much misunderstanding about the Holy Scriptures. So
I want to be very honest about the book of Revelation and the events of the coming days while writing these volumes about beware of the coming days pass the word. My honest feeling or opinion is that we are living in the last days and we the members of the Body of Christ needs to make ourselves ready for our Lord’s returning to claim that His bride ready to eat at the wedding feast prepare for the bride of Christ. Therefore, again I must state that no I am not a man of great wisdom; however, I know and believe this, that we are to take the Holy Scriptures as God gave His message unto them while the Lord walked in the land with Israel and that message was to be pasted on unto the church today. For the Holy Word of God is for our instructions for life and life more abundantly and that we are not to alter the word of God only that we are pass it on.
Again, and again I will repeat to beware of the coming days for many Christians misread, misinterpret, or just do not comprehend the warnings of God found throughout the Holy Scriptures regarding the coming days. Therefore, let us consider with the spiritual wisdom, spiritual knowledge of understanding, of what may well be one of the most critical warning given by our Lord in regards to this fact that if the evil servants says in their heart that the Lord delays His coming and convinces another individual to be part of the world, therefore, my flag of warning is beware for the Lord cometh when we are not aware Matthew 24:48-51. I believe that in these words from the gospels as well as the epistles that our Lord brings out the truth of the great apostasy of them that say they are Jews and are not or them that say they are Christians and are not 2 Thessalonians 2:2. As I study further on this subject about the fact that time is running out or beware of the coming days or what many scholars and theologians call the coming days the eschatology times which means end times or the last days.
When one states, beware of the coming days, therefore to many individuals truly do not understand what the coming days are all about as well as the coming events recorded in the book of Revelation and about how God will pour out His wrath upon this earth and upon all who are evil and finally destroy this earth. The sad part is that if the church does not talk with other Christians about the end times nor do they try to tell the non-Christian individuals about these end time prophecies of the book of Revelation they will face the judgment because they therefore did not hear the warnings of how to escape this judgment and wrath of the Lord God. According to the words of God that He gave to the prophet Ezekiel in this warning unto him was that if he did not warn them of the coming danger that their blood would be required at his hand Ezekiel 33:8. I state this because many Christians read the Holy Scriptures, however, they many times do not interpret the meaning of what God meant or what God intended when He gave His message to the apostles and the prophets to speak to Israel, the church, and the last days.
For example, let us look at the meaning of (Romans 13:11 from two translations of the Bible “And that, knowing the time, that now is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we first believed.” (KJV)
“This is all the more urgent, for you to know how late it is, time is running out. Wake up, for our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.” (Romans 13:11 NLT)
As we consider these words of the apostle Paul that it is time for believers or Christians to know that it is high time for them to wake up from their sleep that time is running out to my understanding the facts are quite clear that Christians then as well as today are asleep or falling asleep. The point that I am trying to make by stating what I have just stated from the words of Paul is that if Christ would come today or this very instant, I believe He would find the church sleeping or many within the church sleeping while they were to be on guard duty. For as Christ dictated unto John what to write to the church at Ephesus in regards to the fact that they had left their first love brings out this understanding that the love and zeal which they first had has now gone to sleep or grown cold Revelation 2:4. Let me say this that it is a very dangerous thing to be asleep spiritually I say this because of what the Lord brings out in His parable of the wheat and tares Matthew 13:25.
I bring this parable to your attention for this reason for Jesus made it clear that while men sleep the enemy came in and done their damage by sowing the poison grain in the field or one could interpret the church. Furthermore, we are warned repeatedly throughout the New Testament to watch and wait for the Second Coming of our Lord look at Matthew 24:42, 26:41 and there are many other texts of scriptures that tells us to watch. In addition, the scriptures which gives unto us the very causes that brings about spiritual sleep and that it sears the very conscience of many believers 1 Corinthians 11:30. Nevertheless, I believe that all Christians have the responsibility for watching for themselves in order to protect themselves from the evil power and rules of darkness Ephesians 6 by putting on the whole armor of God.
To awake from spiritual sleep, then, it is to come to a full understanding God’s Divine reality that while we sleep, we were not allowing God’s Divine realities of grace and salvation of His New Covenant to be alive in our lives. Then the question must be: What is it to awake out of sleep? First and foremost, it is to awake from the sin of what plagues our heart for it is in our heart where we allow the Son of God to come into our lives with a personal relationship and to love Christ with all our heart.
THE MARKS OF THE COMING DAYS
One of the saddest things that I have heard down through the years of my ministry is I just not ready to go to church and accept the Lord I have time yet. What that means to me is these individuals are saying maybe not is these words I need to have my fun before I come to the Lord and go to church. The other thing that I have heard is I cannot go to church for if I do that, I will have to change my way of living and I am not ready to do that yet. However, let me say this that the Lord is going to come whether you are ready or not. My purpose for writing about the marks of the coming days is to bring a specific understanding of the scriptures that marks the coming days and the need for preparing for those days.
Now in the gospel of Matthew chapter 24 that we are to “watch out that no one deceives you” (NIV) I believe is a clear word of warning from the Lord that we are to be on guard duty with our lives to make ready the coming days. The Lord goes on to say that the day is coming when many will turn away from the faith by waxing cold. You will also find in the gospel of Mark where the Lord makes this statement that they are not to worry about what they will speak when they have been called before counsel for the Holy Spirit will be the one speaking Mark 13:11. Therefore, when we compare this text of scripture with what the Lord has the apostle John to write unto the church at Smyrna where He tells them that the devil will cast some will some of them in prison to test them but they will only suffer ten days Revelation2:10.
Now also considering the gospel of Luke in chapter twenty-one where the prophetic word in Luke that there will come a time of great persecution and people will be dragged out of the church and be put on trial because of what they believe Luke 21:12-16. Going back to the gospel of Matthew 24 the King James Version of the Bible states “then there shall be great tribulation” Matthew 21, while the New International Version states “For then there will be great distress” Matthew 21, while the New Living Translation states it this way “there be a time of great persecution,” Luke 21:12. These texts of scriptures makes it clear that people will be tested for their faith before the world and that they will be hated for the Lord’s sake and calling upon His Name.
As many Christians know that our society and within much of the church doctrine within the church is degrading with every passing day. In addition, the marks of the coming days are happening throughout the world and within the church for we are seeing many events taking place from the prophetic word of the Holy Scriptures. If there was ever a time that people needed to call upon the name of the Lord it is now. With this thought of understanding in mind let us the Body of Christ search through the prophetic word of God that will help us fully understand the marks of the coming days.
We as the members of the Body of Christ believe that God had His instruction written to confirm that what He gave unto His Son of the revelation regarding the events which would come to pass or take place in the coming days. In addition, I believe that there are many Christians if you ask them would not be able to tell you about the devastations that will take place according to the book of Revelation which are the marks of the coming days. Before, we examine the prophetic word of the coming days then we must in addition, consider all of what is happening every day and is it what are the marks of the coming days.
One of the first marks was prophesy by the prophet Daniel that knowledge would increase Daniel 12:4. From that day until now we see the knowledge of mankind increasing with leaps and bounds with technology and with many other advancements, in life of this modern-day life in the world. However, not only in technology but also in the secular knowledge, have we seen great increase as well as the knowledge of God’s truth? Maybe, another way of addressing this subject is the signs of the end of time to show that we have reached the last days.
The marks of the coming days the apostle Paul wrote unto Timothy in two epistles or letters to give Timothy an understanding of the condition, attitude, or even the marks of people in the last days. Yes, one might say it in this manner that Paul was speaking about evil times and that evil times were foretold by the prophets of old and by the Lord in His teaching of His disciples that the world would hate them, and that the word of God would be despised because of the lust of the world. You will also find throughout the scriptures where men resisted the truth concerning the coming days as well as their faith in the complete word of God. Paul’s letter to Timothy makes it very clear about these last days and that they will come to pass with all fullness.
In verse one Paul says these words “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” (2 Timothy 3:1 KJV) Paul was telling Timothy to be on guard regarding the last days in this reality of difficult or dangerous times. The modern church right now it would be well to take heed of these words of Paul to Timothy for right now we live in a day when it is not wise to leave your door unlock even in the daytime, for danger lurks at every turn. There is an old saying that the lock or a lock door is for an honest man and a thief will find a way to destroy the lock. In addition, the criminal element today has no qualms about entering a house for I heard on the news that the rates of break INS have double in the last year.
In this country it was almost zero percent that you heard of any Christian being persecuted, up to a few years ago. Christian today in this country is being persecuted for standing up for what they believe in God and Christ Jesus as well as against the elements of Satan and his evil doctrine. I make this point because this is the spiritual warfare that the New Testament speaks of and gives us warning and the apostle Paul writes much about this spiritual warfare, however, even though the Holy Scriptures does not use this term called spiritual warfare uses many other terms to describe spiritual warfare. Both the Old Testament as well as the New Testament states many times about sexual immorality and that it is an abomination unto God.
We see here in verse two where Paul states “that men shall be lovers of their own self” 2 Timothy 3:2. To my understanding of what Paul is trying to bring out is in this element of truth that men have become self-centered and selfish. It is well to note that this is just one individual’s interpretation that if we pay close attention for, we might just be able to observe that many individuals look for their own self-gratification both young and old. There are many ways or examples in our culture today that spells out the attitude of self-gratification as well as self-centeredness, with no regard to others.
In the title of this book it should be told unto you and for the church of the last days that there is a great need for warning and to be aware of the coming days for even our Lord told His disciples of many events that would take place or unfold before His Second Coming in Matthew 24 the wars and false Christ would come in His name. However, one of the most significant facts found in the gospel of Matthew is where our Lord states that many today are trying to prophesy that the end of the world has come. However, Note: “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” (Matthew 24:36 KJV)
Compare thoughts with what the New Living Translation states also: “However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels or the Son himself. Only the Father knows.” (Matthew 24:36 NLT) When our Lord spoke these words some 2000 years ago, He was establishing the fact that time was running out and yet He did not know the hour of His return Himself. We see here in the gospel of Matthew chapter 24 the words of the Lord are very specific about the events or the signs that will take place before His return.
In addition, I further believe that what the words of what my Lord Jesus stating here in Matthew is to relate the guideline or boundary of which we are to follow and not to proclaim false doctrine which is to change or violate the word of God and His Son. Therefore, the clearer we see the doctrine of the Lord God the more able we are able to see, hear, and believe the prophetic words of our Lord. In addition, of the times to come the greater our spiritual strength can become and the better we will be prepared for the traumatic times Jesus speaks about that would come in Matthew 24 and in the book of Revelation. Another way of interpreting the gospel of Matthew 24 is that the Lord means to show His servants the signs of the end of the age or that time are running out that they may teach these signs. Then the question is do you see the signs of Matthew 24 in the world and church today?
One must also consider that during the day and time that Jesus told His disciples what would take place here in Matthew 24: It is also well to note that the people or His disciples had no concept that some 2000 years later these things would begin to take place. In addition, the concept was that the Lord would come to Jerusalem and be their Messiah and rule during their lifetime in the temple of God.
Jesus told unto His disciples many signs in Matthew 24 and in His parables teaching of His Father action and His judgment of what would occur in the last days. As we study the context of Matthew 24 it is at this time that Jesus begins to explain to His disciples what will be the signs of the coming age or the coming days and that Matthew 24 is showing that this is knocking at the door. Our Lord does not answer His disciples in a manner or order they asked consider “Take heed that no man deceive you.” (Matthew 24:4 KJV) The apostle Paul in addition, also addresses the church at Ephesus with the same words of warning “Let no man deceive you with vain words” Ephesians 5:6. Now the apostle John writes to this fact that we are to try the spirits to see if they are of God 1 John 4:1.
The Lord spoke these words to His disciples for this point of logic: I believe it was to not only to instruct them about vain words of deceit, however, to warn them of the coming days that there would be many who would come in His name falsely. You find that these apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ also wrote about what Jesus stated unto them “let no man deceive you” for example Paul gives the very words of the Lord found in the epistle of 2 Thessalonians 2:3 “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” 2 Thessalonians 2:3 KJV. I use this text of scripture for in the coming days I believe that this prophetic word of the apostle Paul may at any time in this day and time that the man of sin will reveal himself unto the world which is the antichrist.
There is so much written about this subject that can be said by many as well as how it can be interpreted from this text of scripture here in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 here are four areas which any Christian needs to consider: the first “let no man deceive you by any means” the second “there shall come a falling away” the third is “that man of sin” and the fourth is “the son of perdition”. In the first where it is stated by the Lord and His apostles in many places in the Holy Scriptures of the New Testament and when you look more deeply into each text where that it states “let no man deceive you by any means” many people in the world and church today might interpret it as not to trust anyone, however, I do not think that this is what Paul is saying about life. I believe it is about the many individuals today who claim to be prophets and are not and many others who are claiming to be a Christian and are not and this is one of the things that the Lord has written to the seven churches in the book of Revelation. Yes, I can say with all honesty that this sounds harsh and even cruel, however, one might say that these individuals are like an open book and yet they hide many things in their life.
In Matthew 24 the point of reasoning for stating the warnings that the Lord told to the disciples is to show what can cause the apostasy is the many who are the false Christ and false prophets. Later in the epistles the apostle John has this to say about the spirit of antichrist and this spirit will cause much apostasy within the Body of Christ which will be the great falling away. Then the apostle John goes on to say we are to try the spirits to see if they are of God. Here in Matthew 24 the Lord speaks throughout the whole chapter in the tones of prophecy about the coming days and the apostles also speak of the coming days and of those who claim to be Christ in the days of the apostasy or the falling away of the church. The Lord also speaks of wars, famines, and earthquakes and these things must take place.
Now I have briefly talk about the falling away or the apostasy in the church, however, one of the key factors of the coming days that we need to take heed of is that when the man of sin reveals himself to the world Matthew 24:15 regarding the prophecy of Daniel which is the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel stand in the holy place or the temple. This prophecy of Daniel spoken of by the Lord must be continually be stated as a reminder that this is where the man of sin stands in the temple and claims that he is God and in that day is truly when all our heartache begins or our sorrows begin which will be the great tribulation. Moreover, according to the apostle Paul this apostasy must take place before the man of sin reveals himself. I further believe that there are two elements or factors at work even as I write this book and that is the spirit of antichrist and the spirit of Jezebel at work preparing the hearts of humanity to accept the man of sin.
Paul again writes to Timothy the signs of the apostasy that is coming when Paul states “know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come” 2 Timothy 3:1 KJV. In 2 Timothy verses one through eight gives all of the attitudes humanity or mankind will have even in the Body of Christ. Even in the days of Paul there were many false opinions about the time of the coming days which he wrote about especially about the man of sin coming with evil power to deceive many with signs and wonders. There is also another important fact we need to remember is that all of must take place before the coming Day of the Lord.
Here in 2 Thessalonians for some reason we find that Paul speaks much of the subject of the coming days and with the man of sin must be revealed and I write to say that the satanic ambition of Satan is still at work today within the world and the Body of Christ. Another way of addressing this satanic ambition is that the mystery of iniquity or sin is already working until it is taken away by the word of the Lord Jesus Christ. My point of logic is that we the Body of Christ will have to overcome the delusions of this arch enemy of the man of sin or the antichrist with all his signs and wonders 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12. Another reason for stating this if we do not have the power of God’s Spirit indwelling in us then how can we combat the delusions of the evil power of Satan or the man of sin. For he is working today with all of his deceivableness and unrighteousness that we the Body of Christ might perish because of our love for the Lord 2 Thessalonians 2:10.
Now Paul goes on to say unto them at Thessalonica that in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ that we withdraw ourselves from them that walk disorderly after tradition which they have received 2 Thessalonians 3:6. Paul goes on to say that he has heard that there are those who walk disorderly among them and do not work but are busybodies 2 Thessalonians 3:11. It is well to note that these texts of Holy Scriptures reveal the course of the coming days. Chapter Three
