It ain’t gonna happen till the end.
When God decides He has had enough of man’s corrupt activities Satan will then be cast out of the heavens and confined to the earth and sea. (Revelations 12:12-13)
“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; that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, 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. For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.” (2 Thessalonians 2:8-12 NASB)
The lawless one, inspired and empowered by Satan, will be revealed to God’s children, but not to those who refuse the truth. Because they have rejected the love of truth, they will be deceived through their love of evil. “God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false.” Then the last seven years prophesied in Daniel 9:24-27 will begin.
It hasn’t started yet, the lawless one is still a mystery, but I trust that God will let us know. In the mean time beware of false prophets and other deceivers who come in Jesus name. What we are experiencing are the final days of man’s chaotic reign. Hold fast to the truth. Amen.
