“Let no one in any way deceive you, for it [Jesus’ return] will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction.” (2 Thessalonians 2:3)
“For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. But the one who restrains is to do so only for the present, until he is removed from the scene. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord [Jesus] will kill with the breath of his mouth and render powerless by the manifestation of his coming, the one whose coming springs from the power of Satan in every mighty deed and in signs and wonders that lie, and in every wicked deceit for those who are perishing because they have not accepted the love of truth so that they may be saved.” (2 Thessalonians 2:7-10)
The lawlessness is the Antichrist and the restrainer is the Archangel Michael.
The Antichrist will act with great fury to destroy the Church of My Jesus. The Antichrist’s plan will involve all nations, which will be in war at his coming. We are moving briskly to the kingdom of the Antichrist and Satan. Our Lady continued:
‘The great suffering of the Church comes through political power, and laws will be created to prevent the action of the Church. In many places temples will be destroyed and Christians will weep and lament.’
The voice of truth that restrains men from their passions by calling them to repentance and conversion has been entrusted to the Church. The world is on the brink of lawlessness, it means to embrace, codify, and promote falsehoods as though they were truths. To abandon objective truth, which underpins the principles of just law, is to allow the whole structure to collapse.
“Therefore, God handed them over to impurity through the lusts of their hearts for the mutual degradation of their bodies. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie and revered and worshiped the creature rather than the creator, who is blessed forever.” (Rom 1:24-25)
“God is disappearing from the human horizon, and, with the dimming of the light which comes from God, humanity is losing its bearings, with increasingly evident destructive effects.” [Letter of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI to All the Bishops of the World, March 10, 2009] Lawlessness is about to erupt in a world whose future is at stake.
