lawless one
“Lawless One”

2 Thessalonians 2:8-11

8 Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; 9that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, 10 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. 11 For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, 12 in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.

future anti christ
Future Anti-Christ
  • Not against “laws,” for he causes all to wear a mark and no one can buy or sell without the mark. Revelation 13:16-18
  • All dictators have restrictive laws.
  • He is against God’s Law (Torah).
how will we recognize him
How will we Recognize Him?
  • He is anti-Torah (against Torah)!
  • Abomination of Desolation:
puts abomination of desolation in temple matthew 24 15 27
Puts “Abomination of Desolation” in Temple – Matthew 24:15-27

“Therefore when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand)…”

daniel 11 31
Daniel 11:31
  • "Forces from him will arise, desecrate the sanctuary fortress, and do away with the regular sacrifice. And they will set up the abomination of desolation.”
abomination of desolation
Abomination of Desolation

3 Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.2 Thessalonians 2

there already was someone like that
There Already was Someone Like That!
  • Antiochus Epiphanies
  • Forced Jewish people to renounce Torah
  • Tried to Hellenize the Jews.
  • Put “Abomination of Desolation” in Temple
how about titus
How about – Titus?
  • In the year A. D. 70, Titus Caesar, the son of the Roman emperor, came against Jerusalem to besiege it. The siege lasted nearly seven months.
josephus said
Josephus said:
  • When the Roman soldiers brought their ensigns, images of Titus, and set them up in the temple, the abomination of desolation was thus set up. So the image of Titus set up in the holy place was a great abomination in God’s sight, because it was an image of an Antichrist in the very temple that was built to honor the Lord.
slide16
The Roman standard was raised in the ruins, and they sacrificed to their pagan gods in the Holy Place.
eusebius said
Eusebius said:
  • Speaking of A.D. 70, "at last the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophets was implanted in the very temple of God....”

"THE ESSENTIAL EUSEBIUS, Luibheid, Colm, New York, Mentor-Omega Books, 1966, p. 97, III, 5:1-7

preterist thought
Preterist Thought
  • A “Preterist” believes that the Scripture prophecies have already been fulfilled. So there is nothing further that has to be fulfilled (such as a future anti-Christ).
  • The term preterism is derived from the word preterite, or past perfect tense; it also has its roots in the Latin word præter, meaning "past."
thessalonians 2 thessalonians 2 1 10
Thessalonians - 2 Thessalonians 2:1-10
  • Date: CE 50-51
  • Thought that the “Day of the Lord” had already come. (“Left Behind”)
  • Shaul seeks to reassure them that it has still not happened!
slide20
1 Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, 2 that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. 3 Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.
slide21
5 Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things? 6 And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed. 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. 8 Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; 9that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, 10 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved.
destruction by titus 70 ce
Destruction by Titus 70 CE
  • So, was the destruction of the Temple and the “Abomination of Desolations” in Titus’ time that Shaul writes about?
  • No. Still the Revelation of John, which according to good scholarship, won’t be written until after 90 CE.
revelation 13
Revelation 13

11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb and he spoke as a dragon. 12 He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence. And he makes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down out of heaven to the earth in the presence of men. 14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who had the wound of the sword and has come to life. 15 And it was given to him to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast would even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed.

slide24
16 And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, 17 and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.
future antichrist
Future Antichrist
  • Has characteristics of previous types: Antiochus, Titus:
  • Abomination of Desecration in Temple
  • Ceasing sacrificial system
  • Anti God’s Law
empowered by the dragon
Empowered by the Dragon
  • Revelation 12 & 13
  • Revelation 13:2 “And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority.”
  • Revelation 12:9 “And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan…”
not a flesh blood issue
Not a Flesh & Blood issue
  • For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual {forces} of wickedness in the heavenly {places.}

Ephesians 6:12

the ruler of tyre
The Ruler of Tyre
  • 1 The word of the LORD came again to me, saying, 2 "Son of man, say to the leader of Tyre, `Thus says the Lord GOD, "Because your heart is lifted up And you have said, `I am a god, I sit in the seat of gods In the heart of the seas'; Yet you are a man and not God, Although you make your heart like the heart of God–

Ezekiel 28

king of tyre
King of Tyre

11 Again the word of the LORD came to me saying, 12 "Son of man, take up a lamentation over the king of Tyre and say to him, `Thus says the Lord GOD, "You had the seal of perfection, Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. 13 "You were in Eden, the garden of God; Every precious stone was your covering: The ruby, the topaz and the diamond; The beryl, the onyx and the jasper; The lapis lazuli, the turquoise and the emerald; And the gold, the workmanship of your settings and sockets, Was in you. On the day that you were created They were prepared. 14 "You were the anointed cherub who covers, And I placed you there. You were on the holy mountain of God; You walked in the midst of the stones of fire. 15 "You were blameless in your ways From the day you were created Until unrighteousness was found in you.

Spirit Behind Future Anti-Christ

1 And the dragon stood on the sand of the seashore. Then I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten diadems, and on his heads were blasphemous names. 2 And the beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority. Revelation 13

  • “…as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him, wrote to you, 16 as also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction. 17 You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard so that you are not carried away by the error of unprincipled men and fall from your own steadfastness, 18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” 2 Peter 3

Shaul disproved his being Anti-Torah - Acts 21

17 After we arrived in Jerusalem, the brethren received us gladly. 18 And the following day Paul went in with us to James, and all the elders were present. 19 After he had greeted them, he began to relate one by one the things which God had done among the Gentiles through his ministry. 20 And when they heard it they began glorifying God; and they said to him, "You see, brother, how many thousands there are among the Jews of those who have believed, and they are all zealous for the Law; 21 and they have been told about you, that you are teaching all the Jews who are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses, telling them not to circumcise their children nor to walk according to the customs.

Shaul Disproved his being Anti-Torah Acts 21

23 "Therefore do this that we tell you. We have four men who are under a vow; 24 take them and purify yourself along with them, and pay their expenses so that they may shave their heads; and all will know that there is nothing to the things which they have been told about you, but that you yourself also walk orderly, keeping the Law.

Song of Moses & Song of the Lamb

1 Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels who had seven plagues, which are the last, because in them the wrath of God is finished. 2 And I saw something like a sea of glass mixed with fire, and those who had beenvictorious over the beast and his image and the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, holding harps of God. 3And they sang the song of Moses, the bond-servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, "Great and marvelous are Your works, O Lord God, the Almighty; Righteous and true are Your ways, King of the nations! 4 "Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify Your name? For You alone are holy; For ALL THE NATIONS WILL COME AND WORSHIP BEFORE YOU, FOR YOUR RIGHTEOUS ACTS HAVE BEEN REVEALED."

  • 12 Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. 13 But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.14 You, however, continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them,15 and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.
