  1. Many teach “the restrainer” of 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 to be the Holy Spirit, the Church, God, Archangel Michael or even the Roman government but none of these are correct. But before we identify this restrainer, let us first determine that which the restrainer is holding back. We need to look at “certain facts” we know about the restrainer that the participle has no compliment; that is, no direct object to receive the action of the participle. The direct object is implied rather than explicitly stated. So we must supply that direct object. Nearly all of the popular solutions to the problem of the restrainer’s identity have assumed that the man of lawlessness is being held back by the restrainer. This has always been the premise of previous studies. Until now, it seems, no one has seriously questioned this assumption. But is this, in fact, the correct implied direct object of the participle? We must be willing to explore every possibility in order to be assured that we have arrived at the correct solution. So, perhaps the correct question to ask of the text is not, “What is holding back the revelation of the lawless one?,” but rather, “What is the restrainer holding back?” To answer this more foundational question, let us go back to the subject Paul is addressing. It is essential that we interpret this in view of the wider context. Paul clearly states his topic in verse 1: “Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him.” The whole of chapter 2, then, is the Paul’s response to the confusion about the arrival of this historic event. The coming of our Lord is what Paul is concerned with in this passage, not the coming of the lawless one. The confusion of the Thessalonians was not about the coming of that lawless one, but over the rumor regarding the arrival of the day of Jesus. Accordingly, Paul is explaining that The Lord’s second coming has not yet occurred because, in fact, other prophesied events must be fulfilled first. So, “the coming of Jesus and our gathering to him” are being restrained. Thus, verse 6 should be understood to say, “and now you know what is holding him (Jesus) back,” or even, “now you know what is holding it (the day of The Lord) back.”
    The apostle corrected any misunderstanding about The Lord’s coming in verses 3 and 4 by reminding them of what he had explained at length while he was with them – that the day of The Lord’s second coming can not arrive until the prophetic events of the tribulation period are fulfilled. Then in verse 6, Paul reiterates his correction to their confusion when he begins: “And now you know what is holding…back.” So what is it that the Thessalonians now know? They were just told and now know that the day of The Lord will not come until after the apostasy occurs and the man of lawlessness commits the abomination of desolation. Those two events were standing in the way of the second coming of The Lord and then the rapture.
    The popular solutions to the identity of the restrainer assume that the man of lawlessness is being held back. But why would Paul be discussing what is holding back the lawless one when the more pertinent information the Thessalonians needed to be reminded of was the fact that certain prophesied events were holding back the coming of The Lord? The whole point Paul is driving home in chapter 2 is that the day of The Lord’s second coming is being hindered! The restrainer, therefore, is holding back the day of The Lord’s post tribulation coming and the rapture of the church. Since the day of The Lord is being held back, then, as we have already discussed at length, the apostasy and the revelation of the man of lawlessness are holding it back, because those two events must occur first. The restrainer, then, is the Antichrist, aka the lawless one.
    If you are not aware, most English versions of the Bible translate 2 Thessalonians 2:7,8a alike. For example, The NIV says that “the one who holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed….” Because of this kind of rendering, nearly all who read this text are led to believe that only when a certain individual is removed will the lawless one be revealed. But we already know that the restrainer is not holding back the revelation of the Antichrist . Instead, the Antichrist is that restrainer at the abomination of desolation who is holding back the day of The Lord . The mistranslation of the phrase “taken out of the way” is a major reason for the confusion about the restrainer’s identity.
    First, the word translated, “taken,” is not an accurate rendering of the Greek word in our text. It was pointed out earlier that in order to do justice to this passage of Scripture, we must insist on utilizing the normal meaning of words as long as the normal meaning renders a coherent thought and makes sense within the context of what the author is writing. Unfortunately, in 2 Thessalonians 2:7, the normal meaning of the word translated “taken” was not used. Consequently, the translation not only misses the point of what Paul was saying, but it renders the exact opposite sense which he intended.
    Another example of a grossly perverted translation of this verse can be found in the NCV at verse 6, which has switched Jesus out and replaced Him with the Antichrist.
    Look at these verses in the heretical NKJV-7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.
    Do you see that they capitalized the “H” thus giving deity to the Antichrist!

    Now you know what the agenda is on these perverted translations.
    The King James Bible is the ONLY true and preserved Word of God.
    Knowing who “the restrainer” is now hopefully helps you understand that they have purposely been teaching heresy for their satanic twisted agenda.

  3. Hi Levi
    Hope all is well. I have a question.
    When Jesus said he will come after the tribulation not after the great tribulation could that mean that he could come at any time? I am asking because I think we are in tribulation right now (by seeing on how people behave and act right now and all the earthquakes and mass animal die offs and end some ) just not in the great tribulation where we are hated by all nation and getting killed world wide .
    What do you think ? I am a little confused by it.
    Thank you ❤

  5. There is no pre tribulaton rapture. Matthew 24:29-31 and in another part after this it talks about woe to them that have children and give suck in those days! So..if there was a pre trib rapture…children would have gone in it. Appeared to they r still here…Soo..no pre trib rapture. Revelation. 16:14-16 also shows Jesus saying he comes as a thief. This is before armeggeddon not tribulation.

  6. So right Levi…I have showed many this and they all reject it… It hurts for it to be right there and they say well maybe but the holy Spirit is here and that won't happen till it's removed

  7. God is holding back the destruction of the world right now because the Bible said he would said that if he didn't he would have lost some of them even the elect read the Bible y'all
