But in connection with the coming of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah and our gathering together to meet him, we ask you, brothers,
not to be easily shaken in your thinking or anxious because of a spirit or a spoken message or a letter supposedly from us claiming that the Day of the Lord has already come.
Don't let anyone deceive you in any way. For the Day will not come until after the Apostasy has come and the man who separates himself from Torah has been revealed, the one destined for doom.
He will oppose himself to everything that people call a god or make an object of worship; he will put himself above them all, so that he will sit in the Temple of God and proclaim that he himself is God.
Don't you remember that when I was still with you, I used to tell you these things?
And now you know what is restraining, so that he may be revealed in his own time.
For already this separating from Torah is at work secretly, but it will be secretly only until he who is restraining is out of the way.
Then the one who embodies separation from Torah will be revealed, the one whom the Lord Yeshua will slay with the breath of his mouthd and destroy by the glory of his coming.
