Thank God for Steve,
All Scripture quoted, in both sermons and daily thoughts, except when done by a guest, is from the ACP/authorized 1611 King James Version. The words in red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greenish color are of satan. But all of the Bible is spoken by God and should be viewed as God's handbook for us to run our lives by 2 Timothy 3:16.
Let’s go look at who ‘letteth’ is, let me start by showing the Scripture itself.
Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto Him, that ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: (2 Thessalonians 1-3a ACP/KJV) Paul is telling the Thessalonians that while they had received word, in a letter that appeared to have come from him, that the Lord had already returned, it was untrue. He told them that they should not believe such a thing, that they should know by the Scriptures when it will happen. And that it makes no difference if they hear it is or has happened by letter from him, by spirits, by intuition, by rumors, televison, nightly news, the local clergy, the pope, or anyone else. For Scripture tells when it will happen, and if they know Scripture, they can not be deceived.
For that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; (2 Thessalonians 3b ACP/KJV) Before the Lord returns, there will be very few true Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians, for most will have fallen on poor ground, rocky ground, or among thorns choked by satan. And the son of perdition will be evident. Now who is this son of perdition?
The term, son of perdition, is used only one other place in Scripture. A look at where and what is said will tell you exactly who this son of perdition is. And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to Thee. Holy Father, keep through Thine own name those whom Thou hast given Me, that they may be one, as We are. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Thy name: those that Thou gavest Me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but(or except) the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. (John 17:11&12)
So, who is the son of perdition? Well in John 17, Jesus is referring to Judas Iscariot the traitor that sold Jesus to the Jews for 20 pieces of silver. And as we know, satan lived within Judas Iscariot the traitor, for as we read John’s account of the Last supper, we see Jesus saying:
Ye call Me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I AM.
If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him. If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.
I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen. But that the scripture may be fulfilled, he that eateth bread with Me hath lifted up his heel against Me.
Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am He. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth Me; and he that receiveth Me receiveth Him that sent Me.
When Jesus had thus said, He was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray Me. Then the disciples looked one on another, wondering of whom He spake. Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved. Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom He spake. He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto Him, “Lord, who is it?
Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when He had dipped the sop, He gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. And after the sop satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly. (John 13:13-27 ACP/KJV) So, you see, the one called the son of perdition is one who both betrays Jesus and has satan dwelling within him as we who are Saved have the Holy Ghost dwelling within us so does the son of perdition have the devil dwelling with him.
Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. Paul continues to explain who this son of perdition is, continuing and saying: For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only He who now letteth will let, until He be taken out of the way. There it is, He who let’s is the Holy Ghost, read it like this: For the mysterious work of satan, the work of iniquity is already going on: only He, God the Holy Ghost, who now lets it happen, will continue to allow it to happen, until He, God the Holy Ghost, returns to heaven to be with the God The Father and God The Son.
And then shall that wicked one be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming: (2 Thessalonians 2:4-8 ACP/KJV with limited commentary)
The Holy Spirit is now on earth, within the very body of those who are God’s Saved. Through us, God restrains satan from doing the evil he would like to do, it is kind of like God holding back a mad vicious dog on a leash and that leash is us. But, once the Lord has had enough, once the people of earth have reached the point where the Lord washes His holy and incorruptible hands of humanity, He gathers His up, we call it the rapture. In gathering us up, He also recalls God the Holy Ghost, who dwells within us, leaving absolutely no restraint on satan, but, that only last for seven years.
In closing, let me give you something to ponder. To God time is, as the Apostle Peter tells us: ... that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. So to God, a thousand years, is like 24 hours or our time. Some use this verse to justify their saying that it took God seven thousand years to build earth. But, that foolishness aside, think about it, one day to God is like a thousand years here on earth. One of God days is like a thousand years to us. So, seven years is nothing more than a little over ten minutes of God’s time.
The Lord our God, Messiah Yeshua be with and bless you all. Lord, I would ask that You would bless us and protects us from the evil one, his minions, his ilk and those who serve him knowingly and unknowingly. Also Lord protect us from being tempted. Amen.

So, what am I asking you for? Two things, one please pray to the Lord asking Him to supply our needs of oil at a dollar a gallon. And second, if you can spare a few bucks, this would be the time to send it. As you know, I am not a 501c3, so I can't tell you to deduct if from your taxes, and I know that many of you are hurting also. But, if you can a few dollars, just send it to me at:

The difference between a true preacher and a false preacher comes down to this. The true preacher uses God's word to convict of sin, the false preacher twist God's word to justify sin. The Lord our God, Christ Jesus be with you always, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with you all and please keep your pastor and me in your prayers. Amen. My prayer daily is "Lord please bless those tenfold who bless me."
Pray for me, pray for all those who open their mouths or take pen in hand in an effort to sway public opinion.
The Lord God of the Universe, Messiah Y'shua be with you all, amen.
It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
