God Save The Church!
Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and
our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be
soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or
by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the
day of Christ had come.
Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day
will not come unless the falling away comes first,
and the man of sin is revealed, the son of
perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all
that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he
sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself
that he is God.
Do you not remember that when I was still with you I
told you these things? And now you know what is
restraining, that he may be revealed in his own
time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at
work; only He who now restrains will do so until He
is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one
will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with
the breath of His mouth and destroy with the
brightness of His coming.
The coming of the lawless one is according to the
working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying
wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among
those who perish, because they did not receive the
love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for
this reason God will send them strong delusion, that
they should believe the lie, that they all may be
condemned who did not believe the truth but had
pleasure in unrighteousness.....If
you call yourself a Christian, Get ready to pay the
