The pope is the man of sin and the antichrist

The office of the papacy is the “man of sin” of whom is spoken in 2 Thessalonians 2.

“Let not any completely deceive you in not one manner! for it will not be unless the  defection should come first, and the man of sin should be uncovered, the son of destruction,” 2 Thessalonians 2:3 ABP

vs. 6 “And now that which restrains ye know, for him to be revealed in his own time.”

The papacy was revealed when the Roman emperors lost their ability to constrain it because of the destruction of the Roman empire. When pagan Rome was finally destroyed in 476 A.D., papal Rome rose to power since it was no longer constrained by pagan Rome.

From the Geneva Bible with footnotes:

vs. 4 “Which is an adversary, and (f) exalteth himself against all that is called God, or
that is worshipped, (4) so that he doeth sit as God in the Temple of God, shewing
himself that he is God.”

(f) All men know who he is that saith he can shut up heaven and open it at his pleasure, and took
upon him to be lord and master above all Kings and Princes, before whom Kings and Princes fall
down and worship, honoring that Antichrist as a god.
(4) He foretelleth that Antichrist, (that is, whosoever he be that shall occupy that seat that falleth
away from God) shall not reign without the Church, but in the very bosom of the Church.

vs. 7 (6) “For the mystery of iniquity doeth already (*) work; (7) only he which (♣) now
(h) withholdeth, shall let till he be taken out of the way.”

(6) Even in the Apostles’ time the first foundations of the Apostolic seat were laid, but yet so, that
they deceived men.
(*) To wit, privily, and is therefore called a mystery because it is secret.
(7) He foretelleth that when the empire of Rome is taken away, the seat that falleth away from God
shall succeed and shall hold his place, as the old writers, Tertullian, Chrysostom, and Jerome do
expound it.
(♣) Which shall stay for a time.
(h) He which is now in authority and ruleth all, to wit, the Roman Empire.

Select quotes from Seventy Weeks – The Historical Alternative:

Chrysostom, Bishop of Constantinople, 390 A.D., writes, “By the ‘Hindrance’ Paul means the Roman Empire.” This was also believed by Augustine, Bishop of Hippo, 400 A.D.

Jerome, 400 A.D., declared, “If St. Paul had written openly and boldly that the man of sin would not come until the Roman Empire was destroyed, a just cause of persecution would then appear to have been afforded against the Church in her infancy.”

Bishop Wodsworth wrote in 1850, “The earliest Christian writers declare…with one voice the ‘he who letteth’ was the heathen Roman Empire.” (Apocalypse, p. 520)

Tertullian: We pray for the Roman Emperors and empire, for we know that convulsions and calamities are threatening the whole world, and the end of the world itself, is kept back by the intervention of the Roman empire.

Jerome: The Roman world rushes to destruction, and we bend not our neck in humiliation…The hindrance in antichrist’s way is removing, and we heed it not…In that one city the whole world hath fallen.

Evangrius: The Roman emperors are driven from their kingdoms: wars rage: all is commotion: Antichrist must be at hand.

Thus, the pope is the man of sin and the antichrist.

  1. No the Pope is not the man of sin ! He will never be able to sit in the not yet built New Synagogue only a Jew can do this. He does not rule over the Great Harlot [Mystery] Babylon which obviously you do not recognise? The Great City that sits on 7 mountains[not hills]-Zion ,Moriah ,Bezetha,Cared, Acre,Ophel& Golotha where the Prophets precious blood is spil on it; there are 7 heads[of Govt] Gurion ,Sharett,Eshkol ,Begin ,Shamir ,Perez & Rabin[7th] the 8th head is known as ‘the little horn'[son] = BIBI -the 7th head fatally wounded-Rabin! 3 repeat twice in office making 10 horn/kings. The little horns name /number in old Hebrew Gematria is 666! He WAS 1996 the 11th king/horn. he has placed his number/name on ALL of India & China with his Teva Biotec r/hand microchip System & is trying to introduce into LAW marking it on ALL the children of Israel-failed so far-pray it stays that way! The Beast Nation [antiChrist -deniers of Christ] is my family Judah who are such because we murdered God’s Messiah Son [Matt27;25] & HE has turned HIS face from us ever since-almost 2000yrs – do you wonder after the Beast or why such evil has befallen them?….sadly you do not understand Prophesy & mislead many ….eternal contempt awaits so please do be carefull !……Baruch Hashem in Yeshu ha Moshiachl…..HE LIVES…..old Messianic Jew.

  2. A Biblical Prediction :- Daniel 7;25 ‘they [Israel] will be given into his[antiChrist-denier of Christ] hand a Time [3.5yrs-Biblical hour & Jesus Ministry] Times[X3.5yrs] & a half a Time [+ 1.75yrs] = 14yrs- concealed until the Time of the END- Now I believe[Dan12;9] making ALL other values that have been around centuries false………. Binyamin Netanyahu :-WAS 1996; WAS NOT 1999; subdues 3 kings & return without the honour of kingship -loses election but invited to make minority Govt WAS AGAIN 2009 until April 2019 unable to form Govt -caretaker king- until coalition with Benny Ganz May 2020 until election failure? March 2021 as his 14yrs; Time,Times etc is UP! to the day?…..Maranatha Shalom ….old Messianic Jew ….HE [Jesus] LIVES.

  3. Consider what more the Spirit says to me :-
    Daniel 7 & 8 little horn are one & the same in Binyamin Netanyahu who when he came to 1st office ;5 were fallen[dead], one is -Shamir d.2014., one to come & did as caretaker king on the fatal wound of the 7th head-Rabin ,then as Pres .Perez. …also like leopard -native born Palestine ,different to ALL before..feet like bear -parents from Lithuania one of the ribs torn out of bear, speaks like lion – arrogantly bellows Hebrew & English- lion languages.

    N.B **** These are the seven’ mountains’ on which the Harlot sits; Zion,Moriah, Ophel,Bezetha, Gareb, Acre & sacred bloodied Golgotha………..He [antiChrist]]-supplanter] will magnify himself equal to the ‘Commander of the Host’ – Jesus Christ- Who is Matthew 27;37- ‘king of the Jews’. So is there one man of sin who has made himself a modern 11th king[Prime Minister]. & 8th head [ male; of Government 7th head fatally wounded-Rabin]. ….The answer is YES ! Does he fulfill ALL Prophecy ….YES ! …Sadly you do not understand as you have only some Prophetical Insight !…..please read on as HE has given me much….
    Daniel 2; The feet & ten toes the divided kingdom under Rome from which the stone -Jesus Christ- is cut is Judah to the South & Israel to the North -both scattered in the Diaspora 70a.d -135a.d. It had ten toe foundation as only 10 of old Israel’s sons took up land in the Promised Land. Joseph died on the journey his family settled with Benjamin’s & Levi took none settling with ALL as Rabbis. They were part Rome & Jewish -St Paul the example…Jesus was not cut from the divided Roman kingdom as it did not exist…. The modern king/ horn / man of sin also magnified himself by changing his surname to make himself WHAT Jesus Is by name definition ; ‘the right hand son ‘-Hebrew.: Binyamin & ‘God’s Gift’ -Heb. Netanyahu .[was Mielekowsky -from out of the sky?-Deuteronomy fallen angel. This new name adds to 666 in old Hebrew Gemtria ……
    If I have peaked your interest please read more of what the LORD’s spirit says:-
    I write because’ those that mislead many’ will pay a heavy price -so BEWARE.

    A little more you SHOULD know; Daniel 7- picture talk explained- in 1947 the Jews, mainly from USSR, approached the new United Nations to annex Palestine for the nation state of Israel. The Lion [United Kingdom] with eagles wings [USA] as one after their WW2 alliance were torn off when the USA sided with the Bear[USSR- with three ribs torn out-Estonia,Lithuania,Latvia]] who wanted to get rid of their troublesome Jews against the Lion- UK’s wishes to talk the [Arabic] Leopards four wings; Lebanon,Jordan Syria &Egypt into this Motion which when put before the U N was passed with one dissenting vote , the Lion;UK who was then made to walk on it’s own two feet as policeman until nationhood 1948 being repeatedly bombed by the Stern gang forerunners of Mid -East Terrorism. So travelling in S.E direction out of the nations[Lithuania-USSR] the BEAST that comes out of the [Mediterranean] Sea was born treading down ALL around it – i.e. the 4 Leopards wings.
    1948-1996 Ten kings/horns[P.Ms- male sons] that are 7 heads[of Govt] :- Gurion [x2 office], Sharett, Eshkol, Shamir[x2], Begin, Perez, Rabin [x2 killed in 2nd office by rumoured minor MOSSAD agent who would only operate under instruction by Head- Binyamin Netanyahu new incoming king- 12th P.M -one queen -Golda].
    Why would I say my family Judah[now calling itself the lie of Israel -united] is the BEAST country…..Simple ;we murdered God’s Messiah Son sent to Redeem us![Matt27;25] of the murders of the Prophets whose blood was mostly shed in the Great City Harlot Babylon where also is the place where Jesus Last Two will be murdered outside satan’s[BIBI’s] ABYSS[Rev11;7-8] Synagogue [Ezekiel8] under the Dome of the Rock.-JERUSALEM .where also the first Saint Phillip was murdered setting the pattern for the evil false Prophet Popes….the Bible says even the elect [Christians] will be fooled & worship the BEAST & the Harlot….. which many do now!

    WE are currently in the DELAY of the Last Week[Rev10;6] I believe……
    You might think me anti-semetic for what I say but I tell you this unless they repent & recognise our Messiah Jesus they will not survive what will shortly come to pass- that is my aim to have them realise for a large Remnant !
    Your prayers for my family would be appreciated by me & more especially my LORD Yeshu ha Moshiach…..
    HE Lives…HE Speaks …the servant listens…in Christ ..old Messianic Jew..Shalom…just a very ordinary old man …..with a mission to save!. I have been cursed threatened & hated for HIS[Jesus] views….Blessings.
    P.S Bibi’s 3rd? act of Parliament 1996 was to try to [but failed] ban the teaching of Christianity in Israel & for the last 2 years Bibi has tried to pass into LAW[but failed] marking ALL the children of Israel on the r/hand with his Teva Biotec r/hand micro-chip system as he already India & China where you can not trade without it.

    Something else you may or may not consider but I hope you do :-Daniel 9;27 took place in the Great Synagogue Rome January 2016 between the false Prophet Pope Francis & the man of sin Netanyahu & the agreement made that day was broken 3.5yrs later when Bibi opened in June 2019 his false satan’s ABYSS[Rev11;7,8] Synagogue [Ezekiel8] under the Dome of theRock [where I believe will be placed the Abomination weapon he brought back from the USA as special Ambassador early1980’s] consecrated with Pure Red Heifer sacrifice Mt of Olives September 2019-I’m sure you missed it!….also….. Concealed until the Time of the END -NOW[Dan12;9-ALL other old values false! i.e 42mnths, 1260day, 3.5yrs Totals….’.Time [‘the time of trial’-Jesus & HIS 2 Prophets Ministry- last half of the Final Week =3.5yrs] Times [x3.5yrs] & a half a Time[+1.75yrs] ‘=14years TOTAL. Dn7;25- ‘they [Israel] will be given into his [antiChrist’s] hand’ – BIBI’s reign WAS 1996 ..WAS NOT 1999 [subdues 3 kings per Dan 11].. WAS AGAIN 2009 until April 2019 election fail -powerless caretaker king until May2020 Gantz coalition until election fail March 2021 & removal June = 14years TOTAL -Prophecy fulfilled- now watch for Daniel 7;26 ‘court will called to judgement’ so he will never be able to return. to the modern throne….Baruch Hashem……called Israel ….nothing is hidden except the Time of the Return …Shalom.
    .Only one nation has Dominion – my family Judah who control the World’s Money &Trade….Shalom….old Messianic Jew..
