Is Satan pouring on his vengeance the last days?

Last week, week 652 on the SunGrist website of BiblecomBibleman, there were 17, 939 hits, 14,642 page views with 6,176 visitors and 750 free downloads—an outstanding week with as usual quite a few searches for answers; however most noteworthy was the repeat question 4 times, very unusual, almost like a desperation call, “Is Satan pouring on his vengeance the last days?”  That question deserves some thought, and a Bible answer.

Since the sequence timing near the END is for the Holy Spirit to be withdrawn from earth which does allow Satan more freedom to wreck vengeance on the earth, the real Bible question that must be answered is HAS THE HOLY SPIRIT ALREADY BEEN WITHDRAWN FROM THE EARTH BACK TO HEAVEN, and there are many indications that is true:  shootings and killings in public places in America are startlingly steady and in large numbers, world wide radical Muslims do the work of Satan increasingly in the persecution and killing of Christian believers, in American there is an increase in neglect of the sabbath day, rejection of Bible and Christian witness in public schools and life, an increase in immorality of gays, baby abortions, and cop killings.  On the international scene what has been daily clashes on the borders of Israel by its enemies, of course always leading into the final battle to end this world at Megiddo, has escalated to all out missile attacks and responses, terrorism increases, and yesterday we learned that North Korea has many once hidden and new missile bases with Nuclear weapons. This is just to name a few signs that indeed Satan has been released, expanding his dirty work with more intensity across the globe.  Please read HOLY SPIRIT versus SATAN {also Last Days} at http://sungrist.org/HolySpirit_versus_Satan.html .

What according to the Bible is the dirty work (vengeance) of Satan?  You can read or have read to you online 25 verses that explain Satan at https://bible.knowing-jesus.com/topics/Satan,-Work-Of .

Before proceeding further on eschatology or last things, we must gain the Bible perspective on last days, for we have been living on the edge of the END for over 2000 years since the beginning of the last days with the coming on the Day of Pentecost the Holy Spirit in great power.  Peter quoted from Joel on the last days, then said this is what you are seeing now at Pentecost.  You can read and research many such things at http://sungrist.org/LastThings_Eschatology.html .

Paul writes in II Thessalonians 2:1-12  of these last time events:

The Great Apostasy

“Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

5 Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? 6 And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. 7 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 the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

Here then, working backwards is the sequence of events shortly before the Second Coming:

  1. The Falling away must come first before the Second Coming (2:3).
  2. Many will try to deceive you and increasing with the preaching’s of deception just before the Second Coming, primarily the Scofield mites will try to entice you with tricky and comforting of false hope words that a fictitious secret rapture will take place before the falling away and before the second coming.
  3. After the falling away we are in now the Man of Sin, the son of perdition will be revealed, possible has already been revealed since we see the increase in acts of vengeance of a free and released Satan, my vote because of all the damage done to evangelism in the SBC is for Scofield, Darby, Oxford Press, and the 2 gay Greek professors at Oxford University.
  4. Look carefully at the description of some of the vengeance worked by Satan through the man of sin, a prototype personification of course—” the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God….” (2:3) Did you know that the Lifeway book stores of the SBC are now selling a Scofield Reference Bible with Scofield Himself, not Christ, on the cover as promoted by Oxford for a newest Scofield Reference Study Bible.
  5. The Holy Spirit restrains Satan, primarily with his work of conviction on sin, righteousness, and judgment (by the way notice that you hear much less about those subjects now and see less evangelism and converts) and “then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming” (2:8).
  6. Of course the destruction of the man of sin happens as Christ comes again, giving you the natural and Bible sequence of falling away, withdrawal of the Holy Spirit with the release of Satan, and then the Second Coming of Christ. (2:8).
  7. The Bible also leaves little doubt about the vengeance under Satan of the man of sin as he comes with the words of (2”9), “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.” And as such lists some of the acts of vengeance of the man of sin under the released Satan.

(1).  The man of sin carries out the destructive ways of vengeance of Satan, “according to the working of Satan”.

(2).  That vengeance work includes power, signs, and lying wonders like terrorism does, like shootings and killings in public places does, like the warfare of Muslims again Israel does; and naturally in the very nature of Islam with teachings on lying in order to achieve their evil purposes it is “lying wonders”.

(2) “with all unrighteous deception among those who perish” describes the Scofield mites deception in the SBC with a drastic decrease in evangelism and the saved should who instead PERISH.

  1. Lastly there is the terrorists persecution and killing of Christians all over the world which is increasing, perhaps the greatest wicked sign and power of Satan. Scofield mites that wish to deny that the world is presently in the falling away are at a loss to explain these signs of both falling away and tribulation before the foolish and sacred secret rapture.  Please read about “that sort” in the book of II Timothy that believe and practice the secret rapture, at the end of the book turning into Christian fables.  Please read at http://sungrist.org/WhatSort.html .
