“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;”
King James Version (KJV)

On 2 THESS. 2:3
The Word of God is God (John 1:1) and not for any private interpretation (2 Peter 1:20). If it records in Rev. 12:9 that this whole world has been deceived, it did not speak of a particular country, group of people, person or religion, it meant the whole world.
For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' what it means to repent, and learn how and by whom (2 Cor. 11:13-15) this whole world has been deceived and what mankind must do to be reunited with the true and living God, we invite you to seek Him according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (Matthew 7:7; John 14:17).
The word 'Repent' in different forms (repent, repentance, repented, repentest, repenteth, repenting), is mentioned 110 times in the KJV, and there seems to be a great misconception what the true 'spiritual' meaning of the word is. The word 'repent' used in the New Testament was translated from the Greek word "metanoeo", and means to change, transform, to think differently or reconsider.
Only through Repentance will God be able to reveal Himself, and adopt you as His sons and daughters (Rom. 8:15,23; 2 Cor.6:18; Gal. 4:5; Eph. 1:5; Hebr. 12:5; 1 John 3:1) and reveal to you how this whole world has been deceived (Rev. 12:9) and overcome this world (1 John 5:4).
The word 'Repent' means a lot more than what people by nature have been conditioned to believe. It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. It means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).
It is only by revelation of God that people will come to know the true Christ (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Gal. 1:16; Eph. 3:3,5; Rev. 1:1). It should be remembered that it is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:14).

To FRED SCANLAN
Because you are separated from God and spiritually blinded you are not able to understand most of the content on our website (1 Cor. 2:14; John 8:43-45).
You are correct, mankind is lost. The Word of God teaches us so in Revelation 12:9 and the Word is God. are you going to argue with God over things you are not able to understand? The content of our website just explains how and by whom you have been deceived and what you must do to be reunited with the true and living God and how you are able to come to know the true Christ (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Gal. 4:8; 2 Cor. 11:13-15; Rev. 12:9).
Since you know not what manner of spirit you are of (Luke 9:55), our message remains the same: Ye must repent and invite you to study what it means. If you are able to understand what it means to 'Repent' you will also be able to understand the Word of God and the content of our website. Right now it is all just a storybook, while in truth it is 'spiritually' discerned (1 Cor. 2:14).
Seek, and ye shall find (Matthew 7:7).
In His Service.

When the antichrist comes he will sit in the temple of God saying that he is God. Seems to me that he will be very well known.

The end-time Anti-christ lives in the beasts camp (Russia), and will be confirmed as the end-time Anti-christ at the day of the Lord, 6th trumpet, when Babylon (America) falls. 1/3rd of mankind perishes that day, 2.5+ billion people.

You would enjoy this book by Arthur E Bloomfield: How To Recognize The Antichrist. He's deceased now, but he's quite the student of prophesy.
There is information in the Book of Daniel, ch 11-12 you can read. 2 Thessalonians has description. Zechariah 14. The little horn in Daniel 8, is the Antichrist.
Information is all over the Bible. I suggest reading all of the references in the Center of each Page. It's lengthy study, takes much time to do it; but the is a much wider perception and explanation of what you're studying.

The anti christ is mentioned twice in these. first 7 verses , perhaps he is revealed as a very charismatic person who draws multitudes to him , then in verse 7 he will be exposed as the anti- Christ. ,, does this make any sense?
john madden's comment on 2015-10-05 16:31:18:
Read your bible not books about the bible .he says the day of thelord which means christs second comeing will not come until the falling away and the antichrist is revealed.apostasy first then .antichrist comes thier associated.then chrst comes .read it its a simple statement
Free American's comment on 2015-08-01 05:44:36:
To the contrary John, it make perfect sense. If opostasy is the falling away that must come first, that opostacy has pretty much already happened if it's the church that falls away. What church actually preaches scripture-based theology anymore? To the contrary which is NOT preaching redistributive "social justice" of humanism, and its revolutionary progressive collectivism?-of which NO aspect of can be argued for without first establishing an argument against the very existence of God as well as the absolutism of His Eternal Truths? Even the Pope himself has become a champion of its cause... How many trusting souls have they turned away from the spiritual guidence of scripture, toward the earthly works redemption of humanism's collective salvation? None of which according to scripture, can be "saved" by doing so...
John's comment on 2015-07-14 03:29:07:
Our gathering unto Him cannot occur until we have gathered unto Him? This makes no sense ,obviously it means the last job of the church is to identify the man of sin. Then we can be taken up, Get ready do what Jesus said!
Brent A G .'s comment on 2014-11-05 03:55:32:
This must be a falling away could it be it is referring to Departure of the church...The strong 'sConcordance Refers , G575, 7936 960 8057 ,apo G646 and then and that man of sin he be revealed, the son of perdition Anti Christ ? "Apostasia " literally then means "to depart, or go away from ", and to "go away from what " must be determined from the context. So, what is the "context " of both the First and Second Epistle to the Church at Thessalonica? Verse 1 sets the context 2 Thess 2 1 "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him ", the "Departure of the Church ", to meet Jesus in the air! Amen
anon's comment on 2014-08-14 22:17:15:
People 's Bible Notes confirmed my first inclination. Anyone can be the son of perdition. The whole world will be tried and tested. The son of perdition will be revealed in this testing.
Larry Domangue's comment on 2014-05-09 04:33:20:
The anti christ will take power soon after the rapture of the church. The Holy Spirit is in control until He be taken out of the way. Once He is taken out of the way things really go south. That 's when the 7 year tribulation begins and 7 years later Christ return with His saints to take over this ungodly world and He and His saints will rule with a rod of iron for one thousand years.
Samuel Caballero's comment on 2014-03-06 18:07:24:
I believe the church will be rapture and will escape the tribulation so when it talks about the falling away could it be it is referring of the Jewish people that will be saved during the middle of the tribulation just a taught
Timothy Wayne George's comment on 2013-02-18 13:01:29:
The falling away, called the apostasy, comes before the translation of the Church to Heaven. Enoch was taken by God from the flood, and he had a son, whose name meant when he dies it shall come, meaning the flood would come after his death. The Anti Christ cannot come, until the Church has been translated. The Holy Spirit is holding him back from being revealed.
