WHY THE OPENED "LITTLE SCROLL"
The Opened "Little Scroll"
being prophesied "again"
and undergoing fulfilment in this last generation of the "Esau" age, will probably be wondering why the
"Little Scroll" exposes the wicked works of
Antichrist described by the apostle Paul in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12 in such great detail.
(Rev 10:11) (2 Esdras 6:7
The answer, is that their being "revealed only at the proper time" is inspired by The Christ Michael, who is carrying out this work against those who for generations have operated with satanic wickedness in Christ's congregations. (2 Thess 2:6 NEB). Only when the "restraint" of Christ's anointed brothers with Holy Spirit from God were removed by these wicked usurpers, did The Christ Michael begin to reveal those who had chosen the evil influence of satan and the apostasy of Antichrist, including their "lying signs and portents". (2 Thess 2:9).
This work, together with the destruction of Babylon/Iraq
is taking place as prophesied before the arrival of the great Day of God The
Almighty. The Christ Michael will destroy all members of
Antichrist by "the Spirit of his mouth".
(2 Thess 2:1-3 & 8). This Spirit is
revealed in the inspired writings of his anointed "discreet slave" class of
"least ones" (Matt 24:45), who have used the unadulterated Word of God against the
"lying signs" and unchristian behaviour of
members of the "man of lawlessness"
By removing those whom God anointed to carry out His Will on earth, and by standing in authority in their place in Christ's congregations, this "man of lawlessness" lifted themselves above God. The question is: Where did all this take place? It took place in many JW congregations worldwide, in the minds and spirits of the members of the sect falsely calling themselves Jehovah's Witnesses! That is why it is prophesied they will become an "object of astonishment"! (Micah 6:16).
THE WRITINGS OF
Augustine also says: '…the secret power of wickedness' refers only to the evil people and the pretended Christians who are in the Church, until they reach such a number as to constitute a great people for Antichrist; this, they hold, is 'the secret power of wickedness' because it is, evidently, concealed.' ('City of God'. Book XX. Ch. 19).
When faithful anointed sons of God were removed from the scene, we began revealing their wickedness. At first, this 'secret power of wickedness' was concealed from their new converts, most of whom willingly converted to the apostate teachings of JWs. God has allowed "an operation of error go to them" so that those "who did not accept the love of the truth" from faithful anointed sons of God, but wilfully gave their support to apostasy and wickedness, might be brought to Judgement. (2 Thess 2:10-12).
Those who are anti-Christ are in their millions. But the apostate Antichrist are those who after coming to a knowledge of The Christ, showed hostility to his anointed brothers. There is no hope for such ones.
