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. Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness. 2 Thessalonians 1:7-12.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
I speak of many mysteries in My Word. But I am the revealer of mysteries, Daniel 2:47, and I reveal them at the proper time by My Spirit. I speak of the mystery of the Kingdom, Mark 4:11, the mystery of My Will, Ephesians 1:9, the mystery of joining the Jews and the Gentiles in one new man, Ephesians 2:11-22, Romans 11:25, the mystery of the Gospel, Ephesians 6:19, the mystery of Christ in you, Colossians 1:27, the mystery of godliness, 1 Timothy 3:16, the mystery of the Jewish people, Romans 11:26, the mystery of faith, 1 Timothy 3:9, and the mystery of lawlessness. 2 Thessalonians 1:7, but really there is only one mystery, it is My Mystery, and all these mysteries are wrapped up that one mystery, which My servant Paul described as follows “to all the wealth that comes from the full assurance of understanding, resulting in a true knowledge of God’s mystery, that is, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” Colossians 2:2-3. In the fullness of times, everything is summed up in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth, I make all clear in Him. Ephesians 1:10.
Today I will reveal to you the mystery of lawlessness. It also relates to the mystery of godliness, that is, righteousness. It has to do with free will, man’s free will. It bothers many people and causes them to question My love. But it is not that, and, actually, when they do that, they are operating in the freedom from which both lawlessness and righteousness arise. You have to understand this mystery to understand why there is evil in the world and why it seems to be going unchecked. It is the mystery of free will and how you use it, and, ultimately, of intervention and intercession.
Lawlessness is when you use your dominion authority to rule over the works of My hands in a way contrary to My purpose and nature. It is the spirit of disobedience and rebellion, which I liken to witchcraft and sorcery, and is a work of iniquity and evil that aligns you with the spirit of wickedness, the prince and power of the air. It is the realm of darkness. Adam plunged his descendants into it, but the mystery of Christ, My Word made flesh, the last Adam, delivers you out of it. I rescued you, that is, if you want to be rescued. It is a choice to act in good or evil, and only you can ultimately make that choice. And I do everything I can to help you make the right choice, but I will not make it for you. Deuteronomy 30:19.
Lawlessness. “Anomia” in Greek. It means “no law.” It is acting with an utter disregard for My law, that is, My written and spoken Word. My living Word. It includes the end impact of law breaking, that is, harm to the person’s soul and those upon whom it is practiced. It began in the Garden of Eden by a lie that was believed and the spirit of disobedience began to take control of the sons of Adam. You see it in My people once they had acquired all they wanted from Me and no longer knew or valued My Word, they turned to acts of lawlessness, “In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes.” Judges 21:25. And the result? Chaos and every evil work until I could find someone who would intervene and restrain the spirit of lawlessness and release My righteousness. And these were the Judges.
It does not please Me when people are abused. I hate sin. My eyes cannot rest upon it. And if someone will call Me in and join in partnership with Me, I can vindicate and deliver. But I cannot until that happens. After four hundred years the children of Israel finally called to Me for deliverance and I looked for a man who would open his heart to Me and release My life into the earth. I found Moses. And through his obedience, I vindicated a nation and delivered them from abuse and oppression.
But before that, I was shut out and had to let the murders go. All the boy babies they took, but I did justice when I was permitted to vindicate the victims, and all the firstborn of Egypt went down. I gave them a chance to repent and release the oppressed, but they would not. Hard hearts of lawlessness. Justice is the result.
You have to understand free will and how I set up the earth realm to understand what I am about and what you are about, and what is your part, both local and global. When I created the earth and all that is in it and universe around it, I was very clear that I set everything up for you. I made all for you to richly enjoy. I made it all for mankind as My own family to rule and reign with Me and in Me forever. One. I made you in My image and likeness, a little lower than Me for you are not your own sovereign, you are dependent on Me as your source of life and power, I clothed you with glory and majesty and I gave YOU dominion rule over the works of My hands. Psalm 8:5. I put all things under your feet, all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, the birds of the heavens and the fish of the sea, whatever passes through the paths of the seas. Psalm 8:6-8. I gave you seed and seedtime and harvest. I gave you the sun and rain. I gave you a leasehold to the earth and the universe I had made. The highest Heaven is Mine but the earth I have given to you. Psalm 115:16.
I own the earth, but man has the leasehold, and until the termination of the lease term, I cannot do anything in the earth without your authorization. I can send you warnings, admonitions, My offer of help, and all that I am, but it is up to you whether you will open the gate of your heart to Me and authorize Me to act in your life, and it is up to you whether you will open the gate of your mouth and your actions, the deeds of your flesh, to release My power and action into the earth. I could not deliver the Israelites from Egypt without Moses or someone who would intercede and intervene with Me. I was not able to join with mankind when Adam broke his covenant with Me until Abraham opened his life to Me and authorized Me to send My Son to the earth through his line.
Why did I need to send My Son? To undo the works of the devil, that is the works of lawlessness, and now that He took that authority on earth and has returned to the highest Heaven, I have entrusted that mission to you, His body. What is it? The mystery of intercession and intervention. If you do not do it, I cannot move to stop the spirit of lawlessness that is at work even now in the sons of disobedience. And that is why there is child abuse, murders, human trafficking, storms, acts of terror, evil, violence and it is going on without check. Do you think it was My Will when Cain killed Abel? But I could not intervene to stop it because there was no man that stood in the gap for Me. My message? Love one another as I love you, but Cain, who was of the evil one, slew his brother. And for what reason did he slay him? Because his deeds were evil, and his brother’s were righteous. This fight goes on until Jesus returns at the termination of man’s lease upon the earth.
My servant John put it this way by the revelation of My Spirit: “Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness. You know that Jesus appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin. No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him. Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy (undo) the works of the devil. No one who is born again of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born again of God. By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother.” 1 John 3:4-10.
People ask why I permit people to do evil to other people, why I allow storms, and why I allow injustice, but My question is why do you? You are the ones who have the authority on the earth, and I can only act when you will join in the ministry of your great High Priest- the mystery of intercession and intervention. The mystery of the greatest power that you have, the power of prayer to release the supernatural and to stop the evil in its tracks. Are you performing your ministry? Do you daily pray and authorize Me to intervene in the lives of those being abused who are helpless victims of lawlessness? Vengeance is Mine. Let Me release it. No weapon formed against you will prosper and every accusation raised against you, YOU will prove false. Your righteousness is from Me.
Have you raised the standard or do you sit by as people perish? Are you in your watchtower interceding? Are you picking up My alerts? If you do not know how to pray as you ought, release your tongue to the prayer of the Spirit in you in uttering you cannot know. But My Spirit knows and I know. And they will hit the mark of the evil heart. Are you praying that all men be saved and come to know the truth? I ask you to do so.
And when you take a stand that is not “politically” correct, do not be surprised if the world hates you. You know that you have passed out of death into life, that is, have been born again as anew creation in Christ, because you love your brethren. He who does not love abides in death. Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer; and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. You know love by this, that Jesus laid down His life for you; and you ought to lay down your lives for the brethren. Don’t be so selfish and concentrate your whole life on your own interests. Look to others too, people are perishing as victims of acts of lawlessness. You have the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of your testimony to overcome.
Whoever has the world’s goods, and sees his brother in need, whether it be spiritual, emotional, mental, or physical, and closes his heart against him, how does My love abide in him? Don’t just love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth.
When you are born again from the imperishable seed of My Word, I have rescued you out of the realm of darkness, cleansed you of lawlessness, and your sins and lawless deeds I remember NO MORE. Now walk in newness of life. By grace do the things that are pleasing in My sight. I am faithful and I will help you through. For this is My commandment, that you believe in the name of My Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as Jesus commanded you. The one who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. You know by this that He abides in you, by the Spirit whom I have given you. 1 John 3:13-24.
Now read these Words that I gave My prophet Isaiah and I think you will understand. Isaiah 59. I look for one to intercede, and finding none to stop the lawlessness, I had to come down Myself as one of you in My Son. But now you are His body on earth, to do the works He did and greater. And Jesus went about doing good and healing all those oppressed by the devil. What are you doing?
And He will return a second time, not to take away sins but to vindicate His own children, His bride the Church, and destroy those who have destroyed others and the earth.
I do not sit by forever, I will take back the dominion, and then I will give it again to those who have chosen to live in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, My people who have made the choice against the spirit of lawlessness. Read on:
“Behold, the LORD’s hand is not so short that it cannot save; nor is His ear so dull that it cannot hear.”
Why have you not called on Me when you see abuse or hear of it? I can save. Here is the answer for so many and herein lies the mystery of lawlessness:
“But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken falsehood, your tongue mutters wickedness. No one sues righteously and no one pleads honestly. They trust in confusion and speak lies. They conceive mischief and bring forth iniquity. They hatch adders’ eggs and weave the spider’s web. He who eats of their eggs dies, and from that which is crushed a snake breaks forth. Their webs will not become clothing, nor will they cover themselves with their works. Their works are works of iniquity, and an act of violence is in their hands. Their feet run to evil, and they hasten to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity, devastation and destruction are in their highways. They do not know the way of peace, and there is no justice in their tracks. They have made their paths crooked, whoever treads on them does not know peace.”
And the result of this free reign to evil with no one standing in the gap? With no one so much as making a chirp or a peep, and no one taking up the Sword of the Spirit? Will not one of you say “Restore!”?
“Therefore justice is far from us, and righteousness does not overtake us. We hope for light, but behold, darkness, for brightness, but we walk in gloom. We grope along the wall like blind men. We grope like those who have no eyes; we stumble at midday as in the twilight, among those who are vigorous we are like dead men. All of us growl like bears, and moan sadly like doves. We hope for justice, but there is none, for salvation, but it is far from us. For our transgressions are multiplied before You, and our sins testify against us. For our transgressions are with us, and we know our iniquities. Transgressing and denying the LORD, and turning away from our God. Speaking oppression and revolt,. Conceiving in and uttering from the heart lying words. Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands far away; for truth has stumbled in the street, and uprightness cannot enter. Yes, truth is lacking; and he who turns aside from evil makes himself a prey.
Now listen to what the response of Mine is to this complaining and lawlessness of man:
“It was displeasing in His sight that there was no justice. And He saw that there was no man, and was astonished that there was no one to intercede.”
I could find no one to intercede. Will you step up today and join in the High Priesthood of your head and intercede at My throne of grace for the victims and for the abusers?
But read more of Isaiah, for you must see about Jesus, what I did to stop and undo the free reign of lawlessness and to restrain it till the time He who restrains it is taken out. I sent My Son, My strong and outstretched arm by which I reach down to you, for I was in Christ reconciling the world to Myself, not counting their transgressions against them. But I also will return to rectify all the evil for those who do not receive Him and repent. I do not take acts of injustice and violence lightly. You see how I punished them in My Son, a death only He was pure enough to offer as a victim of all sin. Sin is very serious. It destroys. Its wages are death. But you have the free gift of righteousness and eternal life in the Lamb who takes away the sins of the world.
“A Redeemer will come to Zion, and to those who turn from transgression in Jacob,” declares the LORD. “As for Me, this is My covenant with them,” says the LORD: “My Spirit which is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your offspring, nor from the mouth of your offspring’s offspring,” says the LORD, “from now and forever.” Isaiah 59.
The power in and on you that can do abundantly exceedingly beyond all you ask or think. Are you using it or doing nothing? Where is the spirit of compassion? It is in you, do not grieve Him.
“Then His own arm brought salvation to Him, and His righteousness upheld Him. He put on righteousness like a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on His head; and He put on garments of vengeance for clothing and wrapped Himself with zeal as a mantle. According to their deeds, so He will repay, wrath to His adversaries, recompense to His enemies; to the coastlands He will make recompense. So shall they fear The name of the LORD from the west, And His glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him.”
My Spirit in you. Are you raising up the standard? Or are you paying no attention to the works of lawlessness in your land? In your household? Be committed to the work of intercession. Go to your room, close the door and pray for those who are suffering and have no knowledge and no one to intervene.
I made you alive in Christ, you who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, the spirit of lawlessness, among whom also you all once conducted yourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others. Ephesians 2:1-2. This is the spirit working in the sons of disobedience, the sons of Adam whose father is the devil. But you do not have to stay that way. For what did I do for you? Listen to the words of My Spirit has penned by Paul:
“But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:4-10.
You cannot serve two masters. You cannot straddle the fence. You are all in or you are all out. You either will tolerate wickedness or you will go after it as My intercessor on earth.
So please understand, I am displeased with oppression, injustice, blood shed, evil deeds, and malicious actions and speech, but the only way I can enter and change things, stop them, is if someone will intercede. When I found no one, I sent My Son, once for all. And now you are His body on earth to continue His works and greater for you are a vast body of believers not limited to one place and one time. But now He is at My right hand ever living to make intercession for YOU who believe and you must make intercession with Him here on earth for those who do and do not believe. Undo the works of the devil with Jesus. He has given you the authority and the power of the Spirit is in you as it was in Him to do so. Prayer, action and justice. For what do I require of you but that you do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with Me, your God. Micah 6:8.
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. Do you know who restrains that spirit from full out attack? The Body of Christ. That is the “He” who restrains it. But when you, the Church, go up in the rapture the wheat is gone and all that remains are the weeds. Full reign for evil with no restraint and the tribulation will go full force as My Son breaks open the seals of the title deed to the earth and vindication will be made for all the evil deeds done to the victims of such abuse as I take it back for the Kingdom of My Son and begin the Millennium. And the lawless one will be revealed, and will be consumed with the breath and the sword in My Son’s mouth and destroyed with the brightness of Jesus’ coming.
During the final period of the tribulation, the coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 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 for this reason I will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
I do not let injustice go by, but those who will repent and take My Son as LORD, I make righteous with My own righteousness by imputing all sin to My Son. And your sins and lawless deeds I remember no more.
So do not worry, for I know those who are My own and have hearts for Me, but give thanks because I chose you from the beginning salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth, to which I called you by the gospel, for the obtaining of the glory of your Lord Jesus Christ. Thus, stand fast and hold on to the truth of My Word and bring as many as you can to the knowledge of the saving truth that will set them free from lawlessness. Let Me, who have loved you with an everlasting love comfort your hearts and establish you in every good word and work.
And what is that work? Pray that My Word will spread rapidly and be glorified, just as it did also with you; and intercede for those oppressed and abused that they will be rescued from perverse and evil men; for not all have the faith. For I am faithful, and I will strengthen and protect you from the evil one. Let Me direct your hearts into My love and into the steadfastness of Christ.
Take a look at Psalm 18. You will see a good prayer of intercession, authorizing Me to come down and fight off the violent and wicked. “And cried to my God for help; He heard my voice out of His temple, and my cry for help before Him came into His ears. He bowed the heavens also, and came down with thick darkness under His feet. He rode upon a cherub and flew; and He sped upon the wings of the wind . . . The Lord also thundered in the heavens, and the Most High uttered His voice, hailstones and coals of fire. He sent out His arrows, and scattered them, and lightning flashes in abundance, and routed them.” Psalm 18:6-15. And, “The Lord lives, and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of my salvation. The God who executes vengeance for me, and subdues peoples under me. He delivers me from my enemies; surely You lift me above those who rise up against me; You rescue me from the violent man. Therefore I will give thanks to You among the nations, O LORD!” Psalm 18:47-49.
And here are some more witnesses from My Word about the mystery of lawlessness at work in the world, for I do not want you to be unaware but able to intercede with all the saints so that you can join together and My army and raise the standard. Stop the abuse in its tracks, but never be deceived and join forces with lawlessness.
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’” Matthew 7:21-24.
Then He left the crowds and went into the house. And His disciples came to Him and said, “Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field.” 37 And He said, “The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man, 38 and the field is the world; and as for the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; and the tares are the sons of the evil one; 39 and the enemy who sowed them is the devil, and the harvest is the end of the age; and the reapers are angels. 40 So just as the tares are gathered up and burned with fire, so shall it be at the end of the age. 41 The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness, 42 and will throw them into the furnace of fire; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear. Matthew 13:36-43.
But thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching to which you were committed, 18 and having been freed from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. 19 I am speaking in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness, resulting in further lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness, resulting in sanctification. Romans 6:17-19.
For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, 12 instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age, 13 looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus, 14 who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds. Titus 2:11-14.
Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God. 2 Corinthians 6:14.
I love you. Start a group of those who will keep watch with Me and intercede. Be one that brings divine intervention. The souls you save will shine with you forever in My Kingdom. You are wise to win souls.
