Mondo, look at this for a minute and try to understand why religious people hate more than unreligious people:
try to understand that antichrist is never revealed UNTIL Christ first comes to that soul:
Rabbi Leitman a Kabbalist in Israel explains that the time has come for people to "cross over" to the other side but since 1995 there is no more INDIVIDUAL crossing over; I crossed over in 1992 so I guess I came in under the wire:
now he says, People have to cross over together, in groups: why?
the GROUP reveals the HATE OF what the Bible calls antichrist but he calls the evil in man, his ego:
In that link you will find why evil can NEVER REVEAL ITSELF so no matter how evil someone becomes, the evil stays hidden from him;
ONLY THE LIGHT CAN REVEAL THE EVIL in him:
this is why it is written that antichrist won't appear till that which witholds him will be taken away:
first Christ is risen and then Satan makes his appearance to us:
there is no revealing of true evil till the revelation of the LIGHT reveals it:
and it is revealed so the LIGHT can DESTROY IT:
Rabbi Leitman works with young men in his group to get them to come to the light or draw the light down so that the ego or evil can be revealed. Rabbi says that they can work with it, knowing that a great HATE TOWARDS ONE ANOTHER is revealed in them as well:
now this hate won't hurt those who EXPECT TO EXPERIENCE IT, knowing what is happening to them; HENCE JESUS TALKED ABOUT THESE THINGS TO HIS DISCIPLES FOR THE SAME REASON
the upper light will protect those who hate as long as they keep working with the LIGHT above them to LET IT OVERCOME THE EVIL that is revealed coming from them:
it is written that the antichrist MUST GO OUT FROM US SHOWING it is not of us
it is what COMES OUT OF A MAN that DEFILES HIM,
...so here is that chapter that explains this MYSTERY OF INIQUITY....that is already at work.....
2Th 2:1 ¶ Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and [by] our gathering together unto him,
2Th 2:2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
2Th 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;
2Th 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
2Th 2:5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
2Th 2:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
2Th 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth [will let], until he be taken out of the way.
2Th 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
2Th 2:9 [Even him], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2Th 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
2Th 2:13 ¶ But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
2Th 2:14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
2Th 2:15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
2Th 2:16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given [us] everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,
2Th 2:17 Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.
