We seem to have a hard time picturing in our minds just HOW FAST EVERYTHING WILL REVERT TO PURE EVIL, once the Holy Spirit is taken out of the Way in the Rapture, allowing the Satanic Evil to take over the World.

2 Thessalonians 2:7-12 (NKJV)
[SUP]7 [/SUP] 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.
[SUP]8 [/SUP] 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.
[SUP]9 [/SUP] The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders,
[SUP]10 [/SUP] and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
[SUP]11 [/SUP] And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,
[SUP]12 [/SUP] that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.


With the Holy Spirit indwelling all true Believers in Jesus Christ as LORD, it is the Power of GOD the HOLY SPIRIT Who restrains Satan from pushing his "mystery of lawlessness" or REBELLION AGAINST AUTHORITY to it's ULTIMATE LEVEL.
So my question is JUST HOW FAST WILL EVERYTHING REVERT TO PURE EVIL, once the HOLY SPIRIT is taken out of the way?

Perhaps GOD gave us a glimpse of just how fast that can happen, as we watched a supposedly peaceful demonstration in Ferguson, MO. turn to pure Evil mob violence carried all by that "mystery of lawlessness"?

The above pictures will look like a picnic compared to what will happen when Satan has no restrictions put in place on earth.

I am sure that some, if not many, of those rioters/looters if asked if they are Christians would say they are a Christian.

Sorry, I found a typo in that last sentence after the 5 min. was up:

Perhaps GOD gave us a glimpse of just how fast that can happen
, as we watched a supposedly peaceful demonstration in Ferguson, MO. turn to pure Evil mob violence carried away by that "mystery of lawlessness"?

STILL, it is proof that the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. And the TERM "CARRIED AWAY" by it, certainly was an appropriate description. I am also sure that it will RAPIDLY get FAR WORSE, when the HOLY SPIRIT is taken out of the way, and there remains NOTHING to restrain that controlling influence of EVIL.

It is the actions of the looters/rioters that prove they are not Christians?

it is the indifference and dis-respect and god-less-ness
of all, that is so disturbing.

I fear you are right and we are no longer One Nation Under God. But then it is a sign of the times, and that means we are getting close to going home.

Romans 1:28-32 (ASV)
[SUP]28 [/SUP] And even as they refused to have God in their knowledge, God gave them up unto a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not fitting;
[SUP]29 [/SUP] being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
[SUP]30 [/SUP] backbiters, hateful to God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
[SUP]31 [/SUP] without understanding, covenant-breakers, without natural affection, unmerciful:
[SUP]32 [/SUP] who, knowing the ordinance of God, that they that practise such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but also consent with them that practise them.

What part of that does not describe the attitude of that crowd?

During the last lot of riots in London and rest of UK, a number of people were arrested for looting, they came from all walks of life and had all kinds of jobs, many expresed regret and said it was something they never would have even considered, but were caught in the euphoria of the moment and the lawlessness of the situation gave them a bravado and sense of invincibility with a we will never get caught attitude, which instantly changed thier personality and morality in a moment of crazy foolishness.

Yes, that same frenzied euphoric madness is what I think is meant by "the mystery of lawlessness", and once the Holy Spirit is taken out of the way, that evil euphoric madness will carry them into frenzied violent acts, including murder. It will become entertainment for them to watch the beheading of the Tribulation Saints.

Revelation 20:4 (NKJV)
[SUP]4 [/SUP] And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.

Lawlessness can also refer to cover ups, giving fake evidence, and choosing to sabotage a case you are trying as a prosecutor.

Lawlessness also refers to the graft and corruption of the police and officials.

I doesn't know why they just didn't take it to trial before a judge and jury? The Medical examiner that the boy's family has hired is one of the best M.E., he even had his own show on HBO a while back. And what he had discovered from performing the autopsy didn't matched up with the story with the officer stated.

He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.

All ferguson is, is a bunch of people who didnt get what they wanted and played the race card. Now they are all angry and rioting because well, their welfare checks probably aren't enough to cover what they are looting.

But remember, Christmas is weeks from now, and so they do need gifts to bring to their families; and that government subsities check isn't going to make them merry.

Romans 13:1-7 (NKJV)
[SUP]1 [/SUP] Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.
[SUP]2 [/SUP] Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.
[SUP]3 [/SUP] For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same.
[SUP]4 [/SUP] For he is God's minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God's minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.
[SUP]5 [/SUP] Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience' sake.
[SUP]6 [/SUP] For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God's ministers attending continually to this very thing.
[SUP]7 [/SUP] Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.

2 Timothy 3:1-5 (ASV)
[SUP]1 [/SUP] But know this, that in the last days grievous times shall come.
[SUP]2 [/SUP] For men shall be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, railers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
[SUP]3 [/SUP] without natural affection, implacable, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, no lovers of good,
[SUP]4 [/SUP] traitors, headstrong, puffed up, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God;
[SUP]5 [/SUP] holding a form of godliness, but having denied the power therefore. From these also turn away.


They even think they are Christians, but the lifestyle actions they practice prove they are not.
