2 Thessalonians 2:7 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.
When the lawless one will no longer be held back and will be taken out, there shall arise false christs and false prophets.
Matthew 24:24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.
The coming of the anti-Christ is through the activity and working of Satan which will be revealed and will proclaim himself that he is god.
2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
Beware of this lawless one who is the anti-Christ with all power, signs, and lying wonders. Take note and remember these deceiving miracles.
Revelation 13:13-15 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.
Imagine a fire coming down from heaven and a talking image of the beast that must be worship? Who can resist this great deception? Unless you are warned of its existence. There will be affliction, distress, and oppression beyond what the world has ever seen, or will see again.
Matthew 24:21-22 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.
In this period of time, look up in the sky! Jesus is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him.
2 Thessalonians 2:8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.
As of this date, no one who claims to be god or the son of god, can show great sign of making fire coming down from heaven to earth in the sight of men. Still no one, but be ready when it come.
