How the temple prophecy is fulfilled
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 [a]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 [b]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 [c]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 [d]mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only [e]He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. 8 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.
To reveal what, or who that is I say this:
The temple he talks about here isn’t a newly re-rebuilt temple that most say it is. TI’s the church body for it says this:
1 Corinthians 6:19 New King James Version (NKJV)
19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?
This is how that is fulfilled.
Wile the man in a literal sense might be Donald Trump But I believe it’s fulfilled in a more spiritual fashion. But that man of sin and Perdition is us, namely (man), Or mankind. We fulfill this by playing God.
God said it first in 1stSamuel 8
6 But the thing displeased Samuel when they said, “Give us a king to judge us.” So Samuel prayed to the Lord. 7 And the Lord said to Samuel, “Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them. 8 According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt, even to this day—with which they have forsaken Me and served other gods—so they are doing to you also.
Them and us having Govt’s over us does this same thing. Were worshipping other Gods, and playing God by doing so.
Yes old testament said to stone people But remember were New Testament Christians and are to not stone people and allow or let God be. But punishing people with our own laws is playing God and fulfills the Temple Prophecy.
This has been revealed now so there is no excuse when it comes.
