Who is HOLDING BACK the Anti-Christ? | John MacArthur



Dr. John MacArthur tells us who the Bible says is currently restraining the Antichrist.

2 Thessalonians 2:1-17 (NLT2)
1  Now, dear brothers and sisters, let us clarify some things about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and how we will be gathered to meet him.
2  Don’t be so easily shaken or alarmed by those who say that the day of the Lord has already begun. Don’t believe them, even if they claim to have had a spiritual vision, a revelation, or a letter supposedly from us.
3  Don’t be fooled by what they say. For that day will not come until there is a great rebellion against God and the man of lawlessness is revealed—the one who brings destruction.
4  He will exalt himself and defy everything that people call god and every object of worship. He will even sit in the temple of God, claiming that he himself is God.
5  Don’t you remember that I told you about all this when I was with you?
6  And you know what is holding him back, for he can be revealed only when his time comes.
7  For this lawlessness is already at work secretly, and it will remain secret until the one who is holding it back steps out of the way.
8  Then the man of lawlessness will be revealed, but the Lord Jesus will kill him with the breath of his mouth and destroy him by the splendor of his coming.
9  This man will come to do the work of Satan with counterfeit power and signs and miracles.
10  He will use every kind of evil deception to fool those on their way to destruction, because they refuse to love and accept the truth that would save them.
11  So God will cause them to be greatly deceived, and they will believe these lies.
12  Then they will be condemned for enjoying evil rather than believing the truth.
13  As for us, we can’t help but thank God for you, dear brothers and sisters loved by the Lord. We are always thankful that God chose you to be among the first to experience salvation—a salvation that came through the Spirit who makes you holy and through your belief in the truth.
14  He called you to salvation when we told you the Good News; now you can share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
15  With all these things in mind, dear brothers and sisters, stand firm and keep a strong grip on the teaching we passed on to you both in person and by letter.
16  Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal comfort and a wonderful hope,
17  comfort you and strengthen you in every good thing you do and say.

One of the big issues of today’s church is the inability to see the scriptures in relationship to the world around them. The Devil LIES and uses deceptive terms to frame all his false teaching under politics, social justice, education, & economics … pushing the world down the road to Antichrist.

But Christians read the Bible and look at the world and cannot see the danger they are in or God’s warnings and instructions for these last days!

No matter what mask is worn… politics, government, religion, culture, or education… there is a war for people’s minds. Deception and confusion reign in our day.

But Jesus warned His followers while praying to God the Father, “I have given them Your word; and the WORLD has HATED them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.” (John 17:14).

John, one of the inner circle of Jesus’ disciples listened well and also wrote, “We know [positively] that we are of God, and the WHOLE WORLD [around us] is UNDER THE POWER OF THE EVIL ONE.” 1 John 5:19 (AMP)

Hiding behind the nations, leaders, governments, and all the people of the world, an invisible, alien force tries to DECEIVE and DESTROY mankind. Christ Jesus warned, “And from the time John the Baptist began preaching until now, the Kingdom of Heaven has been forcefully advancing, and VIOLENT people are ATTACKING it.” Matthew 11:12 (NLT2)

But, even if you feel safe and comfortable with everything around you right now, remember the warning of 1 Thessalonians 5:3-6 (NKJV):
3 For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.
4 But you, brethren, are NOT in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.
5 You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.
6 Therefore let us not SLEEP, as others do, but let us WATCH and be sober.
So those under the spell of the devil’s deceptions are asleep. Don’t join them in their ignorance.

Revelation 12:12 warns us, “Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”

You may see the world falling apart! Maybe you think evil nations and crooked politicians are to blame for all the chaos you see. But, LOOK BEYOND ALL OF IT, and trust the Word of God. Then, do not panic as the world marches down…

Mark Levin: Ilhan Omar’s Hatred for America EXPOSED


US Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is an un-American, anti-Semitic Marxist. In her latest rant, she uses her platform as a Congresswoman to equate the US with terrorist organizations like the Taliban and Hamas. As Mark breaks down her recent CNN interview, he shows that she isn’t here to embrace freedom and Americanism. Her real goal is to spread the gospel of militant Islamism.

Antichrist Unleashed | John MacArthur | video

The point of this whole chapter is to bring comfort; that’s how it ends. You see the final little benediction in verses 16 and 17: “Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal comfort and good hope by grace, comfort and strengthen your hearts in every good work and word.” The whole idea of talking to us through the text of this passage is to give us comfort. This is about comforting us. And that is really Paul’s purpose all the way through his two letters to the Thessalonians.

Go back to chapter 4 of 1 Thessalonians for a moment and you will find there that at the end of chapter 4 where he has talked about the rapture of the church, which is the next event, as we’ve learned, on God’s timetable. In anticipation of the fact that, “The Lord Himself,” verse 16, “will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.” So he is saying to them, “As you look at the future, be comforted, because the next event is the Lord is going to descend from heaven. You’re going to hear the voice of the archangel, the trumpet of God; and the bodies of dead believers whose spirits are with the Lord, their bodies will come out of graves. And then we who are alive will be gathered to meet the Lord in the air, and we’ll always be with the Lord.”
