God is Thought. The brightness of our revelations depends upon the correctness of our doctrines, our building blocks, our Godly Thoughts laid one upon another, ascending into the mind of Christ. May we note that Lucifer (God’s pure good thoughts) became Satan (God’s perverted and thus impure evil thoughts); that is, a holy angel (Spirit) became an unholy angel (spirit) as he fell from Grace through his perversion of God’s word (thoughts). Lucifer-Satan is now temporarily confined inside an earthly prison called mankind... and his fallen minions likewise, and altogether they are symbolized by the tree of the knowledge (thoughts) of good and evil.



(Judg 6:14-16) And the LORD looked upon him [Gideon], and said, Go in this thy might, and thou shalt save Israel from the hand of the Midianites [Heb: brawling, contentious, discord, strife] [a type and shadow of all unsaved men]: have not I sent thee? And he said unto him, Oh my Lord, wherewith shall I save Israel? behold, my family is poor in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father's house. And the LORD said unto him, Surely I will be with thee, and thou shalt smite the Midianites as one man [i.e., as the supernatural Body of Christ with all its Spiritual members acting in unified obedience].

1.    (1 Cor 12:27) Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.

2.    (1 Co 3:16) Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God [built, composed of all the Holy angels (members)] dwelleth in you?



(2 Thes 2:1,2) Now we beseech [Gk: pray to] you, brethren, by [“relative to” Amplif.] the [second] coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him [(the Greek writing convention of pallellism)] [1], That ye be not soon shaken [Gk: to waver, be agitated, rocked, toppled, fig. destroyed] in mind, or be troubled [Gk: (to wail); clamor, be frightened], neither by [fallen, unclean, demonic] spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as [if it came] from us, as [about news] that the day of Christ [“has [already] arrived” Amplif. ] is at hand [“and is here” Amplif.].

1.    (1 Thes 4:16,17) For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel [Michael (Jud 1:9 & Dan 12:1)], and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air [ref. the valley of “dry bones” Ezek 37:1-14]: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.



(2 Thes 2:3,4) Let no man deceive [Gk: to seduce wholly: beguile] you by any [of the aforementioned] means [1]: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away [Gk: a defection from truth (“apostasy”)] [2] first, and that man [corporate many membered body] of sin [lawlessness] be revealed [Gk: to take off the cover, disclosed], the son [spawn] of perdition [Gk: damnation, waste] [doom]; Who [proudly] opposeth [Gk: is adversary to] and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God [“ye are the temple of God” 1 Cor 3:16, built, composed of all the Holy angels (members)], shewing [Gk: to show off, exibiting] himself that he is God [a warning to those “deceiving your own selves” James 1:22].

1.    (Matt 24:4) And Jesus answered and said unto them [His diciples], Take heed [Gk: look at: behold, beware, perceive, regard, see] that no man deceive you.

2.    defection = Dict: 1. abandonment of loyalty, duty, principle, etc.; desertion. 2. a failing or failure.



(2 Thes 2:5-8) Remember ye not, that, when I [the Apostle Paul] was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth [“what is restraining” NKJV, the evil] that he [the Christ (the anointing) in us, the full mind of Christ] might be revealed [Gk: to take off the cover, disclosed] in his [appointed] time [1]. For the mystery of iniquity [“lawlessness: that hidden principle of rebellion against constituted authority” Amplif.] doth already work: only he who now letteth [“restrains” NKJV] [i.e., by the presence of the Holy Spirit anointing in us] will let [restrain], until he be taken out of the way [until he be “caught up” 1 Thes 4:17 (i.e., raptured)]. And then shall that Wicked [Gk: lawless] be revealed [Gk: to take off the cover, disclosed], whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness [illumination, revelation] of his coming: [2]

1.    (Rom 8:18,19) For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed [Gk: to take off the cover, disclosed] in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation [Gk: disclosure: revelation] of the sons of God [who originally were, and still are, angels].

2.    Commentary: who exactly is the “he (that shall) be taken out of the way”? = May we note that “Legion” (Mark 5:9,15; Luke 8:30) is an instructive example of a single spirit that has many spirit members. Thehe (that shall) be taken out of the way” is the collective mind of Christ present in the world today in us (Rom 8:18 & 2 Thes 1:7,10,12), our spirits; the “he” is the anointed Spirit (mind) of the many-membered Body of Christ. We are that one Body and Jesus Christ is our Head. The anointing that we have received is not an anointing of our temporary physical soulical bodies, but it is the anointing of our eternal supernatural spirits, the anointing of our minds, which are contained within the all-encompassing many-membered Holy Spirit of God. That same Holy Spirit of God is now being collectively withdrawn from our Godlyrestraining” overriding global influence upon the entire world. Consequentially, the Satanic influence of strong delusion (“a lying spirit” 1 Kings 22:22,23; 2 Chron 18: 21,22) is proportionately and dramatically increasing, in effect replacing our influence. (It is going to get very nasty out there very soon).



(2 Thes 2:9-12) Even him, whose coming [“The coming of the lawless one, the Antichrist” Amplif.] [the body of the Antichrists] [1] is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness [Gk: delusions] of unrighteousness [Gk: iniquity: wrong] in them that perish [Gk: are destroyed: die]; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved [Gk: safe, delivered: healed preserved, made whole]. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion [strong deception], that they should believe a lie [Gk: falsehoods: lies]: That they all might be damned [Gk: condemned, punished: avenged] who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness [Gk: iniquity: wrong].

1.    (1 John 2:18) Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist [Gk: an opponent of the Messiah] [against Christ] shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby [by that sign] we know that it is the last time.



(2 Thes 2:13-17) But we are bound to give thanks alway[s] to God for you, brethren [brothers and sisters: family] beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning [“ before the foundation of the world”  Eph 1:4] chosen you to salvation [Gk: rescue or safety: saving] through sanctification [Gk: purification] of the Spirit [in you] and [your] belief of the truth: Whereunto he called you by our gospel [Gk: good message], to the [your] obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions [Gk: precepts] [precept: Dict. = a commandment or direction meant as a rule of action or conduct] which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle [Gr: letter]. Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, Comfort your hearts, and [e]stablish you in every good word and work.
