“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” (2 Thessalonians 2:8-9)
The Lord will allow this in its own time. Notice that the Lord slays him with the breath of His mouth. The Word of the Lord is greater than any rebellion. But between now and then, the wicked one will continue his rebellion. Do not be led astray, as so many are, but come into the truth of Christ which has been revealed for you. Come into His grace and mercy and know truth.
Come, Lord Jesus, and invite me to be Your guest. Lead me in the way of righteousness and guide me according to the eternal principles of liberty and life. In You alone, O Lord, our hope is found. This world continues its rebellion until that time when You shall call it “the end.” Help me to not worry about what time I am in, but to spend my time productively learning how to be faithful.
Lord Jesus, You have come so that we may have life and have it abundantly. Regardless of the circumstances in which I find myself, help me to live into this life which You have given me through grace. Guide me in the upward call of Your mercy in order that I may not be caught up in the insanity of this world’s rebellion. Help me to truly abide in You and You in me that I may become like You. Amen.
