MORNINGTIME 2857
 
And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: ONLY HE WHO NOW LETTETH WILL LET, UNTIL HE BE TAKEN OUT OF THE WAY. 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: Even him , whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 2 Thessalonians 2:6-9. The Words themselves here seem to be confusing, and what the Words mean, is even more so. Try this illustration. Imagine a cop standing in the middle of a very busy intersection directing traffic. He has his whistle to get the attention of the car drivers, he has on white gloves so the drivers can see and understand his hand signals, AND a gun on his side to stop anyone who may even think of disobeying. He's in THE MIDDLE of traffic passing him from all directions, yet he's the safest man in the area BECAUSE HE HAS THE FULL POWER AND AUTHORITY OF ALL THE LAW TO BACK HIM UP. And EVERYONE knows it. If you're in your car, stopped and waiting to go, you are being Restrained by the Restrainer. When he changes signals, you are no longer restrained and have full authority to go forward. THE RESTRAINER DOESN'T MOVE FROM HIS PLACE, HE MERELY ALLOWS THE RESTRAINED TO MOVE. Spiritually speaking, the Holy Spirit is The One who draws all men to Christ and Salvation. He is also The One who is holding back, restraining, the revealing of the man of sin, the Anti-christ. The man of sin CAN'T move forward in all his wickedness, UNTIL THE HOLY SPIRIT ALLOWS HIM TO. Remember, Satan has already been SOUNDLY DEFEATED, and can only do what he will be allowed to do. The Holy Spirit DOES NOT FEAR the man of sin, neither does Christ, neither do the Followers of Christ. The anti-christ has a job to do, Christians, Christ, and the Holy Spirit all have their jobs TO VICTORIOUSLY DO, so do your Job, and, Be Blessed.
