The Coming of the Lawless One.
Yes, the very European Army they denied they were building, just as they denied the accusation cast against them that they were building a European Empire.
And let us remind ourselves that throughout history every empire has stationed garrisons throughout its territory, but not to protect it from external threats but rather to beat down the natives if they should think to rise up and cast off their oppressor.
The policy of ‘The Assyrian Kings’ which are a ‘picture’ of The Antichrist to come to the student of scripture, was to mix the people of the nations they had conquered through a form of ‘enforced mass immigration’ [sound familiar?] that thereafter fractured, and having no common language, god, tradition or culture they would be unable to rise-up as a people and cast off their oppressor.
Rome also stationed garrisons throughout the empire consisting of a mixed multitude loyal to Caesar. Expect then, if we remain in the European Empire to have foreign troops gathered from the empire stationed on our soil, the EU knowing as all empires that our own soldiers are unlikely to beat down their own people but that troops from elsewhere, certainly will.
It grieves me that we are unable stop what is coming, even the construction of a tyrannical world order being prepared for the coming of The Lawless one. Yet we who believe can hinder it, and this by working with ‘The Restrainer’ who resists the spirit that is currently driving our leaders to construct the necessary infrastructure The Antichrist [The Assyrian] requires up and running before and not after he has been revealed.
2 Thessalonians 2:6-8
6 - And you know what is restraining him [the spirit of antichrist] now so that he [The Antichrist] may be revealed in his time.
7 - For the mystery of lawlessness [the spirit of antichrist] is already at work. Only he [The holy Spirit] who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way.
8 - And then the lawless one [The Antichrist] will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will kill with the breath of his mouth and bring to nothing by the appearance of his coming.
And where is The Restrainer at this time?
16 - And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
17 - Even the Spirit of truth [The Holy Spirit]; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
1 John 4:4
Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he [The Holy Spirit] who is in you is greater than he [the spirit of antichrist] who is in the world.
And when will The Restrainer, even The Holy Spirit be removed that the Antichrist shall be revealed at the set time and not a moment before? Why at the Rapture of the Church in which He dwells.
1 Thessalonians 4:15-17
15 - For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent [Rise before] them which are asleep. [Christians who have already died trusting in Christ]
16 - For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: [Resurrected into new bodies]
17 - Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
And then shall come a time of trouble on the earth that has never been witnessed before, nor ever will be again.
21 - For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 - And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
