    This verse can only be understood by revelation, this is because that very portion is a mystery. The mystery of iniquity there is referring us what happened in the garden of Eden that it's only by revelation that someone can understand it is sex that took place there. So God is still revealing to his people through aposttle Paul that the mystery to iniquity doeth already happened.

    This is a really good chapter
  • I am that Michael Isaac Dale
    This false Christ speaks of the coming antichrist (but is exposed as one of many antichrists.) It is written, Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and THIS IS that spirit of antichrist, WHEREOF ye have heard that it SHOULD come; and even NOW ALREADY is it in the world.
  • Paul
    The body of Christ will leave before the anti -christ is revealed. Verses 5-8 show that he can't be here at the same time as the body of Christ, we keep him from being revealed. We will be caught up "pre-trib" and after the anti-christ is revealed begins the time of Jacob's trouble, Jeremiah 30:7.
  • Jerry
    Just food for thought we must wake up There is already a temple where Gods temple was at one time recently the. pope who claimes to be Christ incarnate was at this temple recently remember this pope is a Jesuit and there has never been a Jesuit pope before and there is a huge behind the scene push to make a 1 world religion open our eyes Lord!!! Jerry
  • Jerry
    Most who post on this subject are call "Pre Trib" and say many are"Left Behind" via Jerry Jenkins the great Deciever and they will be saved during the Tribulation but they also say the "Holy Spirit" has been removed!!! My point is simple show me in the kjv how to be saved "without the Holy Spirit"??? Remember you say the Holy Spirit is gone removed not here... Jerry
