"Great falling away": Revelations 9:15 talks of a third of mankind died. What could have happened? I think that the covid mRNA vaccines are just that. The chapter talks about demons having a King over them ( Appollo) and scorpions giving poison and being the cause of the deaths in revelations 9:15 or thereabouts. These are vaccines and the king over them is the Hippocratic oath that doctors take.

This , I believe is the mark of the beast of revelations 13 and 14. Why? The most crucial reason for this belief is that the vaccines change the human DNA by a process called reverse transcriptase. Thay add something to God's creation of human DNA and it is forever passed on through the lineage of anyone who takes the vaccines.

Christ said in Matthew 24 that as it was in the time of Noah so shall it be in the time of the coming of the Son of man. In Noah's time the "sons of God" (demons cast out of Heaven) liaised with women and the human DNA was corrupted. In Genesis chapter 6 only Noah was perfect. The word "perfect" is the same word of the Exodus where an unblemished lamb was sacrificed. It refers to physical perfection... God's creation.

This is what the great falling away refers to. Over 5,000,000,000 people have taken the vaccines that change the DNA. Equally doctors have said that ANYONE who has taken the vaccines WILL die soon. This refers to the "four winds ( Moderna, Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Johnson and Johnson)" that are kept for a particular hour, day , and year in Revelations 6 , I think. They are told not to hurt trees or grass but ONLY those men who don't have the seal of God in their foreheads. In other words , those who reject Christ. Revelations chapter 9 says a third of mankind died. That's 2,500,000,000 people. That , I believe , is the great falling away.

Sitting in the temple of Christ... are our bodies not the temple of God. He has already done the deed

2Th 2:8. Then shall that Wicked be revealed - When the obstacle, mentioned in the preceding verse, should be removed, then shall that wicked, etc. Nothing can be plainer than that the lawless, (), as the Greek signifies, the wicked one, here mentioned, and the man of sin, must be one and the same person. The apostle was speaking before of what hindered that he should be revealed, and would continue to hinder it till it was taken away; and then the wicked one, etc. Not that he should be consumed immediately after he was revealed. But the apostle, to comfort the Thessalonians, no sooner mentions his revelation than he foretells also his destruction, even before he describes his other qualifications. His other qualifications should have been described first, in order of time; but the apostle hastens to what was first and warmest in his thoughts and wishes: Whom the Lord shall consume, etc. If these two clauses refer to two distinct and different events, the meaning manifestly is, that the Lord Jesus shall gradually consume him with the free preaching and publication of his word; and shall utterly destroy him at his second coming, in the glory of his Father, with all the holy angels. If these two clauses relate to one and the same event, it is a pleonasm very usual in the sacred, as well as other oriental writings; and the purport plainly is, that the Lord Jesus shall destroy him with the greatest facility, when he shall be revealed from heaven, as the apostle has expressed it in the preceding chapter.

2 Thess 2:7

For the mystery of iniquity doth already work - There is a system of corrupt doctrine, which will lead to the general apostasy, already in existence, but it is a mystery; it is as yet hidden; it dare not show itself, because of that which hindereth or withholdeth. But when that which now restraineth shall be taken out of the way, then shall that wicked one be revealed-it will then be manifest who he is, and what he is.

2Th 2:5, 2Th 2:6, 2Th 2:7. Remember ye not, etc. - The apostle thought it part of his duty, as he made it a part of his preaching and doctrine, to forewarn his new converts of the grand apostasy that would infect the Church, even while he was at Thessalonica. From these verses it appears that the man of sin was not then revealed; his time was not yet come, or the season of his manifestation. The mystery of iniquity was indeed already working; the seeds of corruption were sown, but they were not grown up to maturity; the man of sin was yet hardly conceived in the womb; it must be some time before he could be brought forth; there was some obstacle that hindered his appearing. What this was we cannot determine with absolute certainty at so great a distance of time; but if we may rely upon the concurrent testimony of the fathers, it was the Roman empire. Most probably it was somewhat relating to the higher powers, because the apostle observes such caution; he mentioned it in discourse, but would not commit it to writing.

2 Thess 2:6

And now ye know what withholdeth - I told you this among other things; I informed you what it was that prevented this man of sin, this son of perdition, from revealing himself fully.

The Antichrist (Satan) is on the earth, working in secret not making himself known, till he has hold of everyone's hearts and minds through false theology (Dispensationalism, Israel futurism) and corrupt worldviews..


Postmyers567's comment on 2022-07-10 19:09:02:

2Th 2:5 (KJV) Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

Paul tacitly charges them, and rebukes them gently for it; and as a faithful monitor, stirs up their pure minds by way of remembrance, and reminds them of former truths delivered to them: they were confused by false Apostles


Postmyers567's comment on 2022-07-10 19:00:04:

2Th 2:4 (KJV) 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.

this verse nails it home as to who is being spoken of (Satan)


Postmyers567's comment on 2022-07-10 18:56:40:

2Th 2:3 (KJV) 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;

let no man or woman deceive you, that day shall not come (the day of Christ) except there come a falling away from the true faith, which has been happening slowly but seems to have ramped up today, with all this false theology, dispensationalism being at the top of the list in the destruction of American Christianity..

so the falling away is first then, that man of sin, the son of perdition is revealed

the man of sin and the son of perdition are speaking of the same.... Satan

here's the reference for the man of sin... Isaiah 14:16... start around verse 12 and read to verse 23 to get the context..

and the reference for the son of perdition... John 17:12

2Th 2:2 (KJV) 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.

Paul says not to be shaken or troubled, in spirit nor word (new bible versions) or letter, there were false letter going around in Pauls day, that the day of Christ is at hand, the day of Christ is not at hand, Christ is not coming any minute, some things have to happen first...

2Th 2:1 (KJV) Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

Its clear by the opening statement that this chapter is about the coming of our Lord Jesus and the gathering together of believers unto him.

2 Thess 2:9

Euen him whose comming is after the working of Satan, with all power and signes, and lying wonders,"

this is another example where people have replaced Christ with Antichrist, and the only way to make it work is by this invention of a man indwelt by Satan called "the Antichrist" but this chapter is about Christ and Satan the word Antichrist is not mentioned, if you want to say that Satan is "The Antichrist" then that makes sense.

The "whose comming " in verse 9 is the Lord Jesus coming, the king James bible is honest when words are added to the bible, and in this case "Even him" is added in verse 9, read verses 8 and 9 together without the "even him" and its clear.

2Th 2:8 (KJV) 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 (KJV) Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

his coming, (Christ's coming) whose coming (Christ's coming) it doesn't make sense to say "the Antichrist" (Satan) is coming after the working of Satan...

so the Lords coming is after the working of Satan, now you know why they have to invent a man "The Antichrist" to hide this simple truth

Dear "Charley",

thank you for coming with this reminder. And as so many times before, we must never stop teaching / patient all people.

Now there are separate threads in here that explain hell and they make parts of all the levels of the earth. So u can like them, i would advise you to look at them. We must also remember that everyone on the web is at different levels in God's plan and in His arrangement as well. So that we is always indulgent with everyone. Everyone is welcome here on the web, whether they will be is another matter unfortunately. and in the kingdom of God too. In Jesus Christ. :) Peace be with you and yours. Romans 5: 1-5 love u in Christ.

Precious friends, 'Which' Day are we, The Body Of CHRIST 'To look, watch, and wait for'?

Please prayerfully/Carefully Consider, for Encouragement and Comfort (1 Thessalonians 4:18)

The Day Of CHRIST:

"Mystery" CHURCH: Designated as the "Heavenly" Day of CHRIST, Which Will Be The Day Of the consummation of our salvation (into glorification!), And, Presenting of our "rewards!" (Phi 1:6; Phi 1:10; Philippians 1:6,10, Phi 2:16; 1 Corinthians 1:8, 1 Co 3:8-15; 2 Corinthians 1:14).

Rightly Divided (2 Timothy 2:15) From "Things That DIFFER!":

Day Of The LORD:

Israel's KINGDOM: Designated as the "Earthly" Day Of The LORD, which will be, first

of all, a day of Judgment to be followed by the establishment of the Kingdom!

(Isaiah 13:9-16, Isa 24:21-23, Isa 26:20-21, Isaiah 34:1-35:10; Isa 34; Isa 35:1-10; Ezekiel 30:3; Joel 1:15, Joe 2:1-11, Joel 2:1-11; Amos 5:16-20; Obadiah 1:15-21; Zephaniah 1:14-18; Zephaniah 14:1-21; Malachi 4:1-6; Matthew 25:31-46; Acts 2:19-21)

Fred Scanlan's comment on 2021-05-31 04:34:23:

How to remember scripture? I am a former drug addict and find reading and comprehension not compatible in the real sense. I think I am not learning as I I should?

I wonder is this how the Holy Spirit works? Is this how the spirit breaks down the fleshly way of thinking?

The real stories in the bible I learned as a child, but still must be reminded of them even now! If we do not read the word, there would be no refreshing of the knowledge of the truth!

Strength and perseverance, come from Hearing the word! U may memorize it all u want, If it does not abide in your heart, it will be as the flower that dies and fades away! Knowing Jesus is the heart of the matter, gaining insight of who He is, and His love for man , is what you should memorize!

Remember This! He hung on a cross for the world!

Chris's comment on 2021-05-15 16:58:04:

Hello Godfrey. Psalm 119 is a Wisdom Psalm concerning the Law of God & is written as an alphabetic acrostic in which each stanza of eight verses is devoted to the successive letters of the Hebrew alphabet. So as you read the Psalm from verse 1, you will notice the first letter in the Hebrew alphabet (Aleph), then at verse 9 (Beth), verse 17 (Gimel), and so on. Of course, if a Hebrew-speaking person had to write those words in English, he may spell them slightly differently, but the essence of each letter is the same as shown in this Psalm.


Godfrey Charles's comment on 2021-05-15 10:50:51:

ZAIN, what does it mean. Term found in Psalms 119: 49.
