Fortunately the lawless joker who prides himself against others is being restrained by God’s unlimited power until the appropriate time. The lawless one has deceived himself into thinking that control is his possession. One day in the near future, at Jesus’ return, the lawless man will be humbled through death along with his leaders. Though the lawless found power, false signs, and wonders through Satan he will be no match for the Law-giver. Unfortunately, the lawless man will not be led to destruction alone; while on earth he has and is using deception to distract people from truth and salvation in Christ. These followers of deception ignorantly seek happiness and satisfaction in unrighteousness.
