What is the "Strong Delusion" of 2 Thes. 2:11? How & where will the antichrist manifest himself as God to the entire world? Let's examine these questions in detail. I ask that you please read this entire article in detail & examine all the evidence before making your final decision. Please pray before reading any further. Then pray after reading the entire article to seek the truth.
In our other article "Will a Third Jewish Temple Be Built On The Temple Mount?", we proved from the bible that there is no way that the Jews will build such a temple, but rather that the Temple that the Son of Perdition (the antichrist) will sit in is the Temple of God in Heaven. Therefore, it's important that you read that article in order to understand the real meaning of the "Strong Delusion". In this article below, we go beyond the proof that the Temple of God is in Heaven, and prove that the Son of Perdition antichrist is a fallen angel who will wage war in Heaven as Satan did and will be seen in the sky all across the world, thereby causing all the world to worship him as God. I understand that this sounds very strange and far-fetched. Yet I will prove it beyond any doubt in the holy scriptures. Please read this entire article and the article "Will a Third Jewish Temple Be Built On The Temple Mount?" before you make your decision about whether this is false or true. Please don't make a hasty & ignorant decision without examining all of the evidence, just because you think that you already know the truth.
2 Thes. 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
Very clearly, this verse is speaking about the Son of Perdition, the one most people call the antichrist, or "anti-Christ". He exalts himself above all that is called God. That means he exalts himself above Allah and all other so called gods. That would include exalting himself even above Satan. The devil is called "the god of this world".
2 Cor. 4:4
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
The son of perdition will sit in The Temple of God, shewing/showing himself as God.
But does this verse say that this Temple is on Earth? No. We cannot assume it's on Earth. We cannot add to scripture and say this is on Earth. Where is The Temple of God? According to scripture, Rev. 11:19, it is in Heaven. Therefore the son of perdition, as the fallen angel that he is (as I will prove), will enter Heaven and wage war with the good angels and will momentarily sit in the seat of God.
7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Did you read the above scriptures in your personal paperback/hardback bible today or just only on this website?
If only online, I encourage you to please open your bible and read these verses both on our website and in your bible. There is power in reading the real bible. Also, did you pray before beginning to read about this specific subject today? If not, I encourage you to take the time now to pray for understanding of truth.
Rev. 12:7-9 is clearly a war in Heaven just before the Great Tribulation. Notice verse 12, it clearly shows that this war occurs just before the Great Tribulation. The devil and his angels (fallen angels, demons) will wage war in Heaven. Why? What is their purpose of fighting in Heaven? Of course, it is to try to overthrow God. To sit in God's seat! Of course they do not prevail at removing God from power! And of course this is a very blasphemous thing that they do. Of course God will not allow this rebellion to last long. He will throw them out of Heaven! But for a brief moment, The Almighty will allow the son of perdition, who is a fallen angel, an archangel of the devil, to very briefly sit in the Seat, just to expose the angel as being extremely evil and wicked. Do I have another verse to back this up? Yes.
1 The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord God; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God
Ezekiel 28 is speaking about King Nebuchadnezzar, who was the human king of Tyrus during Ezekiel's lifetime. King Nebuchadnezzar's reign over the city of Tyrus was replaced with the reign of the King of Persia, then Alexander the Great, then Antiochus Epiphanes who was the King of Syria and Tyrus who was the foreshadowing of the end time son of perdition who will sit in the Seat of God, in the Temple of God trying to exalt himself. The end time son of perdition will also be the King of Tyrus, which is a city now in Lebanon.
Ezekiel 28 is a foreshadowing of the end time war in Heaven and the end time son of perdition. It is also speaking about Satan, the devil and his angels and the first fall. Ezekiel is not only speaking about events on Earth in Ezekiel's lifetime and during the end times, But also concerning the fall of Satan. The devil or his angel, actually did sit in God's Seat! Verse 2 "...I am a God, I sit in the seat of God...". Read the entire chapter to see that it is talking about when Satan first rebelled against God and there was a war in Heaven and he was thrown down to the Earth. Rev. 12:4 is speaking about Ezekiel 28.
Rev. 12:7-12 is speaking about another war in Heaven, in our time, just before the Great Tribulation. History repeats itself. The devil will again try to overthrow God. But this time, the devil will try to exalt not only himself, but his son! The son of perdition! As a counterfeit Son of God, as a counterfeit Christ!
And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
Genesis 6 tells us that the fallen angels had sex with women and those women gave birth (to half human and half demons that we call the "Nephilim"). If the fallen angels under Satan had sex with women, do we really think that Satan himself did not engage in the same behavior? Daniel 2:43 tells us that those creatures will be involved in the end time world empire. And even as The Father has exalted His Son, the devil will allow his son, the son of perdition, to exalt himself, thus the devil will be using his angel, the son of perdition, as his tool of deception and rebellion. In no way, shape, or form does 2 Thes. 2 proclaim that a temple will be built on the Temple Mount.
To enter Heaven and fight and very briefly sit upon the Seat of God, the son of perdition cannot be human.
He has to be a fallen archangel which followed Satan in his rebellion. No humans can physically enter Heaven. Only God and the angels can. In fact, the name "Assad" has been well known among occultists/witches/sorcerers in the middle east for thousands of years. They recognize the name "Assad" as the name of an angel used in the invocational rites of Arabic conjurations. Please click here to see undeniable proof in the bible that Bashar Assad, the president of Syria is the antichrist Son of Perdition.
See this list of angels, both good and bad fallen angels. Notice the name of Assad!
The fallen angels have been involved in Babylonian kingdoms for thousands of years. When we read in Daniel 11 about Antiochus Epiphanes, it makes no division or distinction between Antiochus, the King of Syria, and Assad, the end time King of Syria. It speaks of him as if he is the one and same being. I believe he is the same being. In Daniel 8:10 it describes Alexander the Great as fighting a war in heaven. So I believe that Alexander was the same fallen angel as Antiochus and Assad. In fact, Assad believes that Adam, Moses, Noah, Jesus, Muhammad and himself are all the one and same being reincarnated! Although we know that reincarnation is not real, his belief in one person being reincarnated in different time periods is based on the fact that he is the same fallen angel that manifested as Alexander, Antiochus and Assad. AAA. He is proclaiming himself as the Alpha (and Omega).
Daniel 10:13 speaks of a fallen angel as the "Prince of Persia". In Daniel 10:20 a fallen angel is the Prince of Greece. In Daniel 8:15-16 we see that angels (good and bad) can appear to mankind in the form of a man and with the voice of men. Hebrews 13:2 says "Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unaware". So, again we see that angels can appear to look and act like mankind. We see very clearly that the Book of Daniel identifies the princes of The Persian, Greek and Syrian kingdoms as fallen angels. This is very, very clear in Daniel. If you take the time to read these references, you will see that fallen angels are the kings of those empires. And that the same fallen angel of Antiochus Epiphanes is the same fallen angel that is the end time son of perdition. It is very very clear in Daniel 11.
Isaiah 14:13 speaks in a dual fashion about a fallen angel leader of Babylon and the devil:
For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
The Beast of the son of perdition and the beast of the false prophet cannot be humans.
For one thing, the word "beast" in the KJV of Book of Revelation always refers to governments and angels. It never refers to humans.
Rev. 4:7-9 beast are good angels. (Greek word G2226 - zoon, meaning animal). Rev. 6:3-5 beast are good angels. Rev. 11:7 beast refers to the son of perdition. (G2342 - therion, meaning wild animal. Different Greek words for good and bad angels show that the fallen angels are wild, rebellious. Both Greek words mean animals, but the angels are not animals. But John saw them in the vision with animal symbolism). Rev. 13:1-4 beast refers to the same son of perdition, fallen angel and his Babylonian empires. Rev. 13:11 beast refers to the false prophet with 2 horns, which represents 2 living popes of the Catholic Church, Benedict and Francis. 10 horns = 10 beings, 1 horn = 1 being, 2 horns = 2 beings. Both the son of perdition and both popes are fallen angels.
10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. 11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
He was Antiochus Epiphanes; he is not during the time of John's writing; he is the 8th main king; he is of the 7; he comes and goes from the abyss; he will be totally destroyed by the Brightness of Jesus' Coming (Cast into the Lake of Fire).
Rev. 16:13 is very revealing!
And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
Unclean spirits are fallen angels. There are 3 of them dealing with the son of perdition and false prophet. Also very revealing is that the son of perdition and false prophet are cast into the Lake of Fire at the Coming of Jesus Christ, and they are never heard from again. Anything that is thrown into the Lake of Fire is destroyed. No human is thrown into the Lake of Fire on the day of Jesus' arrival. But rather we see that the Great White Throne Judgment occurs over 1,000 years later at which time the wicked unrepentant humans will be cast into the Lake of Fire. So the son of perdition and false prophet are judged separately from humans.
Rev. 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
For more information about the Lake of Fire, The Great White Throne Judgment, see the article "What Happens When You Die, The Truth about Heaven and Hell".
The devil and his fallen angels were worshiped in Greek mythology as Greek gods and goddesses. Under different names, those same fallen angels were worshiped in Babylonian, Roman and Egyptian mythology. One of the well-known names for the fallen angel of the son of perdition is Apollyon. Revelation 9 speaks about Apollyon.
Rev. 9:1 (NASB) Then the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star from heaven which had fallen to the earth; and the key of the bottomless pit was given to him.
Notice how that the New American Standard Bible (NASB) says that this star/angel had fallen, as in the past tense. His fall does not occur in Revelation 9. He had already fallen. This is saying that Apollyon is a fallen angel.
See verse 11 for his name. Verse 11 also says that he is a king. So we see here a connection with the list of kings in Rev.17:10. He is the king that comes and goes from perdition, the abyss/bottomless pit. He is the king of the metal locusts in Revelation 9. These are helicopters which are spraying chemical weapons which torment men 5 months. Assad is well known for his chemical weapons! Assad was often called “Guardian Hunter” in his military career, a name given to him after the Greek Orion who was “the archer” in the heavens. Orion was also called Apollyon! Assad is Apollyon, the angel of the abyss.
Apollyon, Alexander, Antiochus and Assad = Same.
2 Thessalonians 2:1-7 (KJV)
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 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. 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; 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. 5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
NASB Verse 7: 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.
The Greek word for KJV "letteth" in verse 7 is Strong's G2722 - katecho, which means to hold back, detain, retain, restrain. that which hinders the Antichrist from making his appearance.
Who or what is restraining/holding back the son of perdition? Who holds things back in the bible?
And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.
In Daniel 10:13 a fallen angel is restraining or holding back the good angel who was sent to answer Daniel's prayer.
14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. 15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.
Who was binding the 4 angels in the river? The 6th angel was! God told the 6th angel to loose the other 4 angels.
There is no reason to believe that which restrains is the Holy Spirit or the body of Christ, the church. The bible interprets itself and according to the bible, it is angels which loose and restrain, under God's orders. Therefore what we see happening in 2 Thes.2 is that there is an angel who is guarding the Throne of God, a cherub. God commands the guardian cherub to walk away. He is removed from guarding the Throne. Thereby allowing Assad to momentarily sit in the seat of God in the Temple of God in Heaven. This takes place during the war in Heaven in Rev.12. Then Assad and the devil and the other fallen angels are all cast out of Heaven and they fall to the Earth with great wrath and usher in the Great Tribulation of 3.5 years.
Daniel 12:1 (KJV)
And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
The Assyrian Aramaic word (what people call "Hebrew") that is translated as "stand up" which I have underlined above, is H5975 "Amad" which can have many meanings. The KJV translators have chosen to translate it as "stand up". But we cannot deny that the word "Amad" can be translated into many different words including "to stand still, stop (moving or doing), cease, leave, resist, restrain, let, desist, leave off". Source. In the Holy Greek Septuagint, the Greek word here is G450 "Anistemi" which can mean to "leave a place to go elsewhere, got up from". It is used in Matthew 9:9 "....And he arose, G450 and followed him" and Mark 7:24 "And from thence he arose, G450 and went into the borders of Tyre and Sidon,.....", in which cases you see it is used of leaving a location. Source 1. Source 2.
Verses that detail what is going to happen in the future, as well as verses that determine doctrine, must coincide with another verse in another chapter and/or book of the bible. We can never take only one verse to determine something. We always need another verse to confirm what it really means. To try to use 2 Thes. 2:7 as a way of teaching that The Church or the Holy Spirit is going to be removed from the Earth before the Great Tribulation, is totally not biblical and cannot be confirmed by any verse. Yet Daniel 12:1 and 2 Thes.2:1-7 are in full agreement with each other that the restraining angel, Michael, is covering/guarding the seat of God in the Temple of God in Heaven and just before the Tribulation, he will stand aside, cease to guard the Seat and allow the Son of Perdition to sit in the Seat of God, proclaiming himself as God. Daniel 12:1 should more correctly be translated "And at that time Michael the great prince shall step aside (depart, be taken out of the way), that stands over the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of tribulation, such tribulation as has not been from the time that there was a nation on the earth until that time. In due time thy people will be delivered, every one that is written in the book". The context of Daniel 12:1 is that Michael is removed from protecting The Saints from the Son of Perdition. It's the same context as 2 Thes.2:1-7. They are in agreement.
On 2 Thes. 2:7, The John MacArthur NASB Study Bible says "Taken out of the way: This refers not to spatial removal, therefore it could not be the rapture of the church". Please remember that MacArthur does believe in and teaches the pre-tribulation rapture! Yet he confesses that there is no way that this verse is referring to such! He continues "...but rather a stepping aside. The idea is out of the way, not gone." He acknowledges that it is a stepping aside by something other than The Holy Spirit, thereby allowing the Son of Perdition to sit in the Temple of God.
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, whoso readeth, let him understand
Jesus was not referring to those alive in 70 A.D. As they would not be reading the book of Matthew. He was referring to us reading today.
"Stand" should be translated as "standing" as it is in most translations. We will see Assad in the Holy Place. Most people assume this is in a temple that is rebuilt on Earth but there is no scripture declaring a rebuilding of the temple. I had assumed the "holy place" was the Temple Mount. But the Jews that were listening to Jesus speak those words, would have understood "The Holy Place" as being inside the Temple. It can also be translated "The Most Holy Place". It's referring to The Temple of God in Heaven. not on the Temple Mount.
2 Thes. 2:1
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
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.
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;
( "revealed" is Greek 601 - apokalypto: "to uncover, lay open what has been veiled or covered up, disclose, make bare, to make known, make manifest, disclose what before was unknown". Antiochus Epiphanes had coins made with images of himself and the words "Theos Epiphanes" which means "God seen" or "God Manifest")
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.
("Shewing" in KJV & "displaying" in NASB is Strong's Concordance Greek #584 - apodeiknymi : "show forth, to expose to view, exhibit, to show, to prove what kind of person anyone is, to prove by arguments, demonstrate". He could stand on the Temple Mount claiming to be God but that would not be very effective. But by showing/displaying himself in the sky, in the Seat of God in The Temple of God in Heaven, that would be very effective!)
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
(Daniel 12:1 Michael the archangel is currently [as of writing this] standing guard over the church as well as The Throne of God in Heaven. But he will be told by God to step aside to allow Assad to take the Seat of God in the Temple of God in Heaven. At that time, the 5th Seal will be opened & the martyrdom of the true church will begin in full force. Rev.12)
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:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
(Assad's coming from the sky is a false (lying) sign compared to Matt.24:30 and the 6th seal & true sign of Jesus' true coming. Assad comes from the sky with power. That's much more than just standing on the Temple Mount & also much more than siting in a temple on Earth. Rev.12:3 says that Assad's war in Heaven will be a sign that will appear in Heaven).
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.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
("Strong delusion" in the Greek is "plane energeia" which means a "deception by strong power". The "Strong Delusion" is that some people will actually be able to see Assad in Heaven during the middle eastern war between NATO/USA & Assad. It will appear as if this war is the Battle of Armageddon & the Coming of Christ. But it's actually the war of Rev.12 where Satan & his angels including Assad wage war in Heaven & then are thrown back down onto the Earth & the Great Tribulation begins.)
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
It's my personal experience that the greatest majority of people are very gullible to all forms of deception, while at the same time, refuse to accept any or much truth. The people are covered in wickedness. Jesus is going to turn the people over to the wickedness that they have embraced.
The context of 2 Thes.2:1-12 is the same as Matthew 24:1-31, the coming of false Christ's & false prophets before Jesus actually comes. Compare 2 Thes.2:3 "apostasy comes first" with Matt. 24:10 "many will fall away". Compare 2 Thes.2:3 "lawlessness" with Matt.24:12 "lawlessness". Notice the "false prophets" in Matt.24:11 & the false prophet of Rev.13 that will stand beside Assad.
Notice that Matt.24:5-24 is warning against the coming of false Christ's & that we should not believe any strong deception. In Matt.24:24 Jesus warned us that there will be great signs & wonders.
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect
Jesus warned us that no matter how strong the delusion, to not believe that the Son of Perdition is the real God, because Jesus will not come until after all these things are fulfilled.
When Daniel wrote about the abomination of desolation in the Holy Place in Dan.8:13, he was referring to an actual Temple. 2 Thes.2:7 is also referring to an actual Temple. But in the case of the end time abomination of desolation, it's not an earthly temple. It's The Temple in Heaven. The Abomination of Desolation spoken of by Daniel (Matt.24:15) were already fulfilled, except for the one written in Dan. 12 which was not fulfilled in 70 A.D. All of the already fulfilled abominations of desolations were prototypes/foreshadowings of the end time Abomination of Desolation. But this time, instead of being a statue in an earthly temple, it will be the fallen angel of the Son of Perdition in the Heavenly Temple of Theos in Heaven, to deceive the majority of the world.
When the Temple stood on Earth, no man could enter the Holy of Holies behind the veil except only the high priest & even he could only enter once per year, on the Day of Atonement. Even then, he did so with fear & reverence. He could possibly die if not clean, reverent & obedient. In the time of the Maccabees, Antiochus entered the Holy of Holies, behind the veil in the Temple, without being killed by the presence of God! Because God allowed it to happen. God stepped out of the Temple to allow Antiochus to seize & defile the Temple. Assad, the same fallen angel as Epiphanes, will enter the Holy Place Matt.24:15 Each & every time that the temple was destroyed, God allowed it.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
History shows that Antiochus Epiphanes was forced by Rome to abandon his attempts at conquering Egypt & Rome. In his wrath against Rome & Egypt, he went against Jerusalem & committed the Abomination of Desolation of the Holy of Holies in the Temple. Antiochus has come back in the form of Assad & he will execute his revenge against Rome & Egypt & finish the job.
16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. 17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. 18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
Pope Benedict & Pope Francis are both fallen angels, as well as Assad. Jesus has put it in their mind to destroy Rome & the Catholic Church & replace her with Islam. The Islamic state of Syria admits their goal of destroying Rome. ISIS will come totally under Assad's control.
These & other scriptures are clear that Assad will be seen in the sky, in Heaven, during the Abomination of Desolation. We need to prepare people for the great signs in the heavens & tell the people to not fall for the great deception!
2 Thes. 2:9 (KJV)
Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders.
The Greek word for "coming" in this verse is Strong's G3952 - parousia. Meaning "(a) presence, (b) a coming, an arrival, advent, especially of the second coming of Christ. "technical term with reference to the visit of a king or some other official, 'a royal visit' " used in the east as a technical expression for the royal visit of a king, or emperor. The word is used 24 times in the New Testament. It is used 6 times referring to Paul, Titus & others coming in the authority of The Kingdom as a representative of Christ.
1 Cor 16:17
I am glad of the coming G3952
of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus: for that which was lacking on your part they have supplied.
2 Cor. 7:6-7
6 Nevertheless God, that comforteth those that are cast down, comforted us by the coming G3952
of Titus; 7 And not by his coming only, but by the consolation wherewith he was comforted in you, when he told us your earnest desire, your mourning, your fervent mind toward me; so that I rejoiced the more.
2 Cor. 10:10
For his (Paul)
letters, say they, are weighty and powerful; but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech contemptible.
That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ for me by my coming G3952
to you again.
Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence G3952
only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
It is used one time to refer to the manifestation of Assad/Antichrist in the Temple of God.
The other 17 times, it refers to Jesus' Coming! So, for this Greek word to be mostly used for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ & means a royal presence or royal representation, in the context of 2 Thes.2, it is now extremely clear that indeed, Assad will be seen in The Temple of God in Heaven. He will be seen from Earth!
It is used more in 1 & 2 Thes. than any other books of the New Testament, including:
2 Thes. 2:1
Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming (G3952) of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 Thes. 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: (G3952)
2 Thes. 2:9
Even him (Assad), whose coming (G3952) is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders.
So Paul was very clearly comparing the true Coming of Christ with the coming of Assad in the sky.
The same Greek word is used 4 times in Matt.24
And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, (G3952) and of the end of the world?
For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming (G3952) of the Son of man be.
But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming (G3952) of the Son of man be.
And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming (G3952) of the Son of man be.
Some people believe that the antichrist will be seen or appear in the sky/Heaven via an electronic device called "Project Blue Beam" which is a projection of light or a laser. But it's important to understand that we are not wrestling against flesh & blood. Assad is not human, nor even nephilim. He is not a hybrid, mix of human & fallen angel. But rather he is 100% fallen angel. He does not need any electronic device to pretend to be seen in Heaven.
Please, although you will be laughed at & mocked, it is extremely important & urgent that you warn your friends, those who believe in pre-trib. rapture, & those who are lost & very gullible & confused. When they see Assad in Heaven, they may not realize that it's Assad. The sky rolling back & someone appearing as God in Heaven & descending to the Earth during a major middle eastern war, will be very convincing for anyone & everyone who is not solid in Christ Jesus and the truth that Jesus does not come back until after the Great Tribulation!
As stated earlier, a person could stand on the the Temple Mount in Jerusalem & claim to be God. But that would not be effective. There are actually already many people all across the world that claim to be "God" or "Jesus". And some of them have hundreds or even thousands of followers, but not millions or billions of followers! A man standing on the Temple Mount would only gain the support of a few hundred or thousands of people, perhaps even a million or so with miracles. But he would not gain the support of people of all different religions and atheists in every nation on Earth.
Rev.13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
Rev.13:7-8 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
It's clear in the above verses that the vast majority of all mankind, of all nations, will worship the antichrist. That's not possible if it's just a man standing on the Temple Mount.
2 Thes. 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.
The Greek word for "strong" in this verse is Strong's G1753 - energeia. It means to be effective. It will not be a weak or ineffective delusion that gains the worship of only the followers of one religion or one nation. But rather the entire world. This is only possible via a person/man/angel/demon that manifests himself in the Temple of God in Heaven, in the sky, for the entire world to see him in a fake coming of Jesus. Also, Bashar Assad is the only president or prime minister in the world that has the ability to lead all religions and combine them into one world religion. He is a Muslim, yet he is a Jew, yet he believes in Christmas, Easter, Sunday and the trinity as the Roman Catholics and western religions do. Yet he also believes in reincarnation as the Hindus and Buddhists do. He believes in the Yah names like the Jews and Hebrew roots people do. He published his own version of the Koran and sent it to all the main Muslim world leaders and universities. Click for more info. Therefore once he appears in the sky as "God" and as "the Mahdi", and then soon invades & occupies Israel, he will very quickly gain the worship of everyone who is against Israel, and especially of the Nazis, Muslims, Communists & leftists. Those "Christians" who have been brainwashed into believing the theory of a pre-tribulation rapture will immediately worship the fallen angel, demon, of Assad when he appears in the sky. Even atheists will fall to their knees in worship at the strong delusion of seeing a "God" coming in the sky. Soon, Pope Francis & Pope Benedict will give their endorsements to Assad and stand beside of him, working great miracles, thus resulting in even more people believing and worshiping Assad and the Popes as "God".

These fallen angels, including the devil, only have what power that The Almighty gives them and allows them. The Alpha and Omega has seen the End from the Beginning! He knows what they are up to! His Kingdom will never be conquered!Daniel 4:34 And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured Him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and His Kingdom is from generation to generation.
Daniel 7:14 And there was given Him dominion, and glory, and a Kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve Him: His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His Kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
If you disagree with this article, I simply ask you to please sincerely consider all the evidence I have presented in fasting and prayer.
The specific purpose of why Satan created the pre-Tribulation rapture doctrine is so that when Assad appears in Heaven, in the sky, that billions of people who have been programmed to believe the lie, will worship Assad as God at the fake coming of Christ in a fake Armageddon. When the sky splits open, billions of people will believe it's Jesus coming back (the rapture) & will run out into the streets worshiping the demon of Assad! That is a salvational issue! So, stop believing the lie! Read 2 Thes.2 over & over & over & over again until you believe what the scriptures say rather than the traditional doctrines of mankind.
There is no way that God would allow the devil or the son of perdition or any fallen angel to sit on His Throne! That is blasphemous!
I agree that it is a blasphemous thing for the fallen angels to do! But that doesn't mean that it will not happen. It was blasphemous that people did spit in Jesus' face, slapped Him, flogged Him. But He did let it happen. Yet that was God on Earth! It did not show any weakness in God. Those evil things had to be allowed in order to fulfill all things.
John 19:11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.
Just as God gave/allowed Pilate to crucify God dwelling in the flesh, God will also allow the son of perdition, as the fake Christ, to just momentarily, just for a brief few seconds, to sit on God's Seat in Heaven, to fulfill scripture and expose just how evil the devil and his angels really are!
When the restraining angel is removed in 2 Thes. 2:7-8, the son of perdition will be allowed to briefly sit in The Seat. And notice in verse 4 the word "opposeth". In order to exalt himself, he must also oppose, be an adversary, in other words, he exalts himself in his opposition/war in Heaven.
Ezekiel 7:20-22 says that God turned His face away from Israel and the Temple on Earth during the Babylonian invasion to allow the Gentiles to pollute that earthly temple. In the same way, He will also turn His face away momentarily to allow the son of perdition to sit in The Temple of God in Heaven, only for a brief moment before God and His arch-angels will cast Satan and his angels out of Heaven.
Objection: The bible says the son of perdition (antichrist) will be on Earth.
Answer: Yes, the bible describes the son of perdition ruling all nations on the Earth. He is on Earth now. But the bible never says that he will sit in a Temple on Earth. The bible actually describes him waging war in Heaven and exalting himself in Heaven. (Daniel 8:9-10, Rev.12:7, Ezekiel 28) When the war in Heaven occurs and he briefly sits in the heavenly Temple, he will be cast back down to the Earth as described in the bible.
Objection: The son of perdition and the devil/Satan are the same being.
Answer: That is impossible. It is impossible for the son of perdition to be Satan. In Rev.13:2 we read that the dragon, Satan, gave authority to the beast, the son of perdition. They are two different beings. Also we see in Revelation 19:20 that the son of perdition, the beast, is thrown into The Lake of Fire at the Coming of Jesus the Christ, and never heard from again! Yet the devil, Satan, is cast into the bottomless pit in Rev. 20:1-2, to be released after the first 1,000 years. The Lake of Fire and the bottomless pit are two different places. The devil and the son of perdition are separated into these two different locations. They can not be the same being. They are both fallen angels. The son of perdition is one of the angels that followed Satan at his fall before Adam and Eve.
Objection: The Temple of God is the true followers, the Body of Christ, the spiritual church. He said He would not dwell in a Temple made with human hands and that we are the Temple of God. Therefore the Temple must be the church.
Answer: This reasoning does not fit the scriptures of the son of perdition sitting in the Temple of God. The son of perdition cannot sit in the true body of Christ. That is impossible. Yes, the spiritual Temple of God is the called out ones, the ekklesia, the bride of Christ. Although the bible does speak of the physical body of the individual Christian as the Temple of God, it never collectively calls the ekklesia, the church, a temple. The son of perdition cannot be part of such a spiritual body of true believers, nor can he sit in the physical body of a true believer. There is no way it can be referring to him sitting in the true body of Christ. This is a physical temple, not made with human hands (Hebrews 8:1-2 Hebrews 9:1-12), which is in Heaven. We see that it has much physical temple furniture, the Ark of the Covenant, an altar, etc. These are real things. Not just spiritual. But they are in Heaven.
Revelation 13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
In recent weeks, Jesus has revealed to us more about the strong delusion event. According to Revelation 6:2, when the antichrist, Bashar Assad, appears in the sky, he will be riding on a white Pegasus horse which the Muslims call "El Buraq".
According to Islamic tradition, In A.D. 621, at the age of 51, Mohammad was awakened by the archangel Gabriel, who invited him to come outside. As he stepped through the door, he was introduced to a huge white horse with giant wings like an eagle. Gabriel told him that the horse once belonged to Abraham, and that his name was El Buraq meaning, "Lightning". Allah told Mohammad that in the end of days, when the “day of recompense” arrives, the flying white horse will return for the resurrected Mohammad (the end time Mahdi) to mount and ride again!
For Muslims, the Wailing Wall (or Western Wall) is known as "the Buraq Wall", for on the other side (the Muslim side of the Wailing Wall on the Temple Mount) is where Muhammad tied the Buraq, the riding animal upon which he rode during the Night of Ascension. The wall links to the structure of the Al-Buraq Mosque.
The Al-Buraq Mosque is a subterranean mosque next to the Western Wall, located in the southwest corner of the Temple Mount.
Muslim scholar, Ka’b al-Ahbar is viewed among Muslims as a trustworthy transmitter of Hadiths as well as Isra’iliyyat (their twisting of the bible). Ka’b al-Ahbar is supported in his view that the rider on the white horse in the Book of Revelation is the Mahdi by two well known Egyptian authors, Muhammad Ibn ‘Izzat and Muhammad ‘Arif in their book "Al Mahdi and the End of Time". ‘Izzat and Arif quote Ka’b al Ahbar as saying:
"I find the Mahdi recorded in the books of the Prophets… For instance, the Book of Revelation says: “And I saw and behold a white horse. He that sat on him…went forth conquering and to conquer.” ... "It is clear that this man is the Mahdi who will ride the white horse and judge by the Qur’an (with justice) and with whom will be men with marks of prostration on their foreheads". [Marks on their foreheads from bowing in prayer with their head to the ground five times daily].It is said by some that it was for this reason that Saddam Hussein had numerous murals painted all over Baghdad portraying himself as a Muslim Knight on a white horse with sword drawn doing valiant battle against the infidels.
Muslims take note of Revelation 6:2 in the Bible and apply it to the Mahdi.
On March 16, 2021, I awoke from a prophetic dream of a great earthquake to hit Los Angeles, California. In the dream, I saw many fires as a result of the quake. Later the same day, there was a huge explosion of fireworks in the Los Angeles metropolitan region, just around 35 miles east of the center of the city. One of the two men who died in the explosion was named "Caesar". Jesus had been showing me "the ides of March", (full moon of March, also known as Purim) since 2006 or 2008. The ides of March of course has a connection with the Roman Emperor Caesar, being the date that he died. This date points us toward a future Purim, regardless of the Roman date. And this dream on the same day as the explosion, and in the same metro region as the explosion, with the name Caesar, and a picture of a white horse at the site of the explosion, all connect an earthquake to a future Purim, during a fake Battle of Armageddon.
Compare the word "earthquake" in Esther 1:1 in The Alpha & Omega Bible (AOB), the antichrist in Dan.11:36 and 2 Thes. 2, the rupture of the earth in Rev. 12:7, the earthquake in 16:18 and Jesus coming on a white horse in Rev.19:11. This all concludes that the antichrist will manifest his self in Heaven (the sky) during a fake Battle of Armageddon, i.e. fake coming of God, which will include a great earthquake.
