    The Great Apostasy =the anti-christ sitting in the rebuilt Jewish 3rd. temple saying he is god.

    2 Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him,(rapture) 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 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 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 as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.===Those that can understand this scripture will clearly see very near future events of these end days.

    The apostasy is here. The revealing of the AC and rapture can in our eyes be simultaneous events.

    Remember, the restrainer/Holy Spirit has to be removed before he can be revealed.

    The restrainer is removed in the rapture.

    In the NT, the temple of God is Christendom. Where the Papacy has been sitting as the Antichrist since about the 10th century.

    And yet more false claims.

    Christendom is not the temple of God. Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit.


    1 Corinthians 6:19 New International Version (NIV)
    19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;

    The Pope is not the AC. But he is a false prophet and teacher.

    Our bodies in whom God dwells make up Christendom = the church = God's temple.

    Even if it is, it does not fulfill prophecy. “For all the promises of God [made to Abraham] in him are yea, and in him [Jesus] Amen, unto the glory of God by us.” (2 Corinthians 1:20) (KJV 1900) They do not apply to the unbelieving Jews.

    You need to be watching Islam and the Papacy.

    This is not true. All Israel will be saved = gentile and Jewish believers in Christ = Christendom proper. Jesus is Israel along with us who believe in him. The broken off unbelievers are re attached only through faith in Christ.

    “And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.” (Romans 11:23) (KJV 1900)

    Here's an idea Augustine (354 - 430 AD) mentioned about who the Antichrist might be. Where Paul says in 2 Thessalonians 2:4;

    “[Man of sin] Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in [Greek = as] the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” (2 Thessalonians 2:4) (KJV 1900)

    Instead of the man of sin sitting in the temple of God, he would sit as the temple of God. Which of course is what the Papacy claims for itself. The Papacy claims to be the one true church. The Church = God's temple in the NT.

    Says Augustine; "Antichrist means not the prince himself alone, but his whole body, that is, the mass of men who adhere to him, along with him their prince; and they also think that we should render the Greek more exactly were we to read, not “in the temple of God,” but “for” or “as the temple of God,” as if he himself were the temple of God, the Church.1405"

    NPNF1-02. St. Augustine's City of God and Christian Doctrine - Christian Classics Ethereal Library

    Most Reformation era churches claimed the Papacy is Antichrist including many post reformation churches including early Baptists and Methodists.

    Yes, there will be another MAN-MADE Temple erected and the Anti-Christ will sit there and proclaim His Lies.

    It is prophecy. It shall come to pass.

    Not to fret....It is NOT on Jesus' Throne or Jesus' Kingdom the Imposter claims as his.

    Glory to God,
    Merry Christmas,

    Will this so called 3rd Jewish temple really be the temple of God? The temple is where God's presence dwells. I suggest God will not be residing at any time in any 3rd Jewish temple.
    So you need to look elsewhere for the temple of God. We know the Antichrist cannot take up residence in heaven, so we can scratch that idea. The only other temple is His body... Wherein dwells the holy Spirit, in other words His church, made up of many members. This is the ONLY temple than can or shall fulfill the criteria you showed in 2 Thessalonians where the Antichrist propels himself to stardom claimng'to to be God.
    As Dave said, this blasphemous action is proudly what the papacy has done. Proclaiming to have the power to forgive sin... Claiming to be the only true expository for God's word.... Claiming to have authority to judge and put to death heretics... Claiming to be Lord over all nations... Even claiming the power to create his creator.... And claiming to be the only Avenue by which men May be saved... Placing Saints and Mary etc as mediators in place of Christ... All these and more are undeniable attributes of a character steeped in pride, arrogance, claiming the prerogatives that belong only to God... This is Antichrist...a system that has placed itself in place of Christ... Instead of Christ... In the room of Christ... Which is precisely what the prefix anti means. There is no other individual or entity that fills the criteria demanded of the mam of sin other than the papacy. An apostate fallen organisation having at its head a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies. All the reformers recognised this. Anything else denies the reformation and places yourself on the side of Antichrist.
