The “mystery of iniquity”

To those with understanding, put these two passages together:

Note the significance of the word “mystery” here:

(2 Thessalonians 2:7-8) “For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:”

and…

(Revelation 17:5) “And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”

This “mystery” referred to here is nothing to do with the world, it is regarding how mysterious it is that something which claims to be Christian, and in appearance is Christian, but is really of the devil.

 

See,  what is “mysterious” is how something can  claim to be Christian, appear to be Christian, but in fact be of the devil.  It’s deceptive, satan appearing as an angel of light,  this is the “mysterious” aspect.
