The Apostle Paul, John, and Peter—Moses, The Prophets, and the Anointed Master Jesus taught concerning the arrival of the Man of Lawlessness. The Apostle Paul taught concerning the time before the arrival, the time during the Judgment era, and the situations after the two kingdoms of the light and the darkness are firmly established.
Closely analyzing the writings of the Apostle Paul, the reader will ascertain that Paul wrote with deep wisdom; the underlying context the majority of readers fail to comprehend. The first two books that were written were to the Thessalonians in Greece. As in the book of Acts, the principal subject in Thessalonians was the return of Jesus. There was considerable expectancy among the first century followers of Jesus, because one of the prime themes Jesus taught was of the judgment era and his return in spirit to confront the darkness. Today, the subject dominates among religions with anticipation; however, ardent dogma has obscured the truth that is under the deception of the darkness. Comprehending during the time of the first century that the primary issue was the return of Jesus is vital.
The first book of Thessalonians, the Apostle Paul exhorts the steadfastness and integrity of the group. In chapter four are few verses that Christianity has a blurred understanding, which they have designated “rapture”.
For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. – I Thessalonians 4:14-17
The context of the subject Paul is referring to is precisely before Jesus returns to reduce the children of the darkness to a ruin. The subject that Christian dogma fails to decipher is the individuals that survive the tribulation of the judgment era be will be saved—after the murdering of the children of the light during the era of the Man of Lawlessness. The ego will delude the children of the darkness, because the human cohorts of the darkness will create a “problem, reaction, solution scenario” fabricating lies, accusations, and slanderous circumstances averse to the children of the light. The result will be an exterminating, which will be a test for the children of the light; peace and security will be the motivation under the pretense of crime and terrorism. Anybody who does not validate, endorse, and conjecture the Man of Lawlessness, who will set himself up as “God”, will be murdered. Following this epoch, the Apostle Paul continues in chapter five that instant destruction will be upon the children of the darkness.
Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need to have anything written to you. For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, There is peace and security, then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief. For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness.
– I Thessalonians 5:1-5
The context of Paul’s teachings in First Thessalonians relates during the time after the Man of Lawlessness arrives. The return of Jesus will be judgment for the children of the darkness, not the righteous, because the children of the light are dead at this time except for a few that has endured the entire time of the judgment era. The Prophets of Zechariah and Zephaniah describe that the great day of the Divine will be of gloom, darkness, bitterness, and dread; yes—darkness, this day will be for the children of the darkness because they are murders.
The great day of the LORD is near, near and hastening fast; the sound of the day of the LORD is bitter; the mighty man cries aloud there. A day of wrath is that day, a day of distress and anguish, a day of ruin and devastation, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick darkness, a day of trumpet blast and battle cry against the fortified cities and against the lofty battlements. I will bring distress on mankind, so that they shall walk like the blind, because they have sinned against the LORD; their blood shall be poured out like dust, and their flesh like dung. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them on the day of the wrath of the LORD. In the fire of his jealousy, all the earth shall be consumed; for a full and sudden end he will make of all the inhabitants of the earth. – Zephaniah 1:14-18
The two books of Thessalonians might have been labeled in an incorrect directive. In the second book, Paul writes about the Man of Lawlessness. The context in the first book occurs after the arrival and to the end of the time of judgment, too, which the judgment era is during the time of the Man of Lawlessness. A judgment determining which kingdom does the individual belong, the kingdom of the light—the new earth, or the kingdom of the darkness—the ruined earth, or within the earth of darkness?
