I’s Just Wonderin’, Is Anybody Headin’ That Way Yet?

The Voice of Elijah® Newsletter, October 1995

Excerpt From Newsletter

First of all, you have to accept the fact that you are not where God wants you to be as His Child. Even if you have continually confessed your sins of the flesh over the years and have maintained a continual prayer life, I can guarantee you that Satan has deceived you in one way or another. That deception would probably not be deleterious to your ultimate salvation in other times. That is, it would probably not result in you denying Christ. The problem is, we are not now living in other times. We are living in the End Times. We are heading straight into the circumstances Paul described to the Thessalonians:

Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and our gathering together to Him, that you may 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. 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, 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. Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things? And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he may be revealed. 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. And 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. And for this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they might 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 2:1–12)

I realize there are those misguided “teachers” in the Church today who tell you that passage does not describe anything you need to worry about because you will already have been “raptured” by the time the Antichrist appears. That is nothing more than Satan’s lie. Paul was writing to assure the Believers at Thessalonica that the Day of the Lord could not possibly have already come because they had not yet seen the Antichrist. He even reminds them he had already told them that when he was with them! Be reasonable. Paul would never have even mentioned the appearance of the Antichrist if it was not something that Christians should be concerned about.
