“Son of Perdition”

Scripture is taken from KJV and Revised Standard and edited to remove blasphemous names (Rev. 17:3), words and titles and to give a more Iybriy/Hebrew rooted understanding; edited also because the "Mother of Harlots" has inserted these names to cover up the names of YaHVeH/יהוה and HIS Ben Yahvshua/יהושׁוּע, and to counterfeit a Babylonian Greco-Roman "god", "lord" "Jesus" "Christ"…etc. and promote its demonic idolatrous pagan customs and "holidays" by replacing YaHVeH's Sabbaths (Dan. 7:25).

Who is this person? Is he a false prophet who claims his authority from Yahshua Mashiyach or is he a ruler of a government?

The phrase “son of perdition” can be found in II Thessalonians 2:3:

 -- King James

2 Thessalonians 2:3:  Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

 -- Revised Standard

2 Thessalonians 2:3:  Let no one deceive you in any way; for that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of perdition,

I like the way the Revised Standard Version phrases it “man of lawlessness” . The King James reads “man of sin”. If we use the Word of YaHVeH to define what lawlessness and sin are then we will understand who this man is.

First of all we need to know what sin is. How does the Word of YaHVeH define sin?

 -- Revised Standard

1 Yahn/Yahvchanan 3:4:  Every one who commits sin is guilty of lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. 

From 1 Yahn/Yahvchanan 3:4 this verse leaves no doubt to what sin is, it is lawlessness. Now the next question is what law is this “son of perdition” not obeying or breaking? Is it mans law or is it the Creators Law/Torah? Sense mans law can be broken without sinning against YaHVeH it cannot be speaking about mans law, for example: If man makes a law up saying you must commit adultery, we know that we can disobey that law because it is telling you to disobey YaHVeH’s Law. So the law this “son of perdition” is breaking is not man’s law it is YaHVeH’s Torah/Law. This “man of sin” is mentioned in Daniel 7:25:

The word "law" in the KJV comes from the Iybriy/Hebrew word "Torah" Strong's Concordance number H8451/ תּרה תּורה, so in other words the "son of perdition" is the "man of Torahlessness".

-- Revised Standard

Daniel 7:25:  He shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the kaddiysh/kadoshiym/purified ones of the Most High, and shall think to change the times and the law/dath; and they shall be given into his hand for a time, two times, and half a time.

The “times and the law” that this man thinks he has changed is not mans times and laws, why would the scriptures be concerned with man’s times (seasons) or laws? Man’s law revolves around the ruach laws, which are found in Shemoth/Exodus 20. In Shemoth 20 we find the condensed version of YaHVeH’s ruach law called the 10 commandments. It is this law that even the gentiles have written on their hearts because it is by these laws they “accuse” and “excuse” one another. Shaul (who was also called Paul by the Gentiles, but his name was never changed) mentions this in Romans 5:13:

-- Revised Standard

Romans 2:13:  For it is not the hearers of the Law/Torah who are righteous before YaHVeH, but the doers of the Torah who will be justified.

Romans 2:14:  When Gentiles who have not the Torah do by instinct what the Torah requires, they are a Torah to themselves, even though they do not have the Torah. 

Romans 2:15: They show that what the Torah requires is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness and their conflicting thoughts accuse or perhaps excuse them. 

This "law" that is being spoken of here is not the “Law of Mosheh” or the “yoke” that was given after the children of Yisrael broke the covenant. This "law" that is being spoken of has always been around but it had not been written down from Adam until Mosheh/Moses (It is ruach because people were being affected by its consequences before it was given. Read articles:9) The Gentiles By Design Have the Ruach Torah/Law Written On Their Hearts); at Mount Sinai and it was the Mouth/Word of YaHVeH that spoke it and wrote it with His own finger (Shemoth 20:1; 31:18): 

-- Revised Standard

Romans 5:13: sin indeed was in the world before the Torah was given, but sin is not counted where there is no Torah.

14. Yet death reigned from Adam to Mosheh, even over those whose sins were not like the transgression of Adam, who was a type of the One who was to come.

I want you to notice verse 14. People were committing sin, but it was not the same sin that Adam committed. Adam sinned by eating from the tree of knowledge of wealth and evil, but Adam’s children after him were committing other sins, what other sins could there have been? It’s not hard to come up with the answer to this question if you read and study the scriptures enough. Does the story of Sedom/Sodom and Amorah/Gomorrah come to mind? What were these people doing? They were committing sexual sin. They were committing violence, homosexuality, adultery, incest, and no doubt bestiality and any other sin you can think of. But at that time those laws had not been written down by YaHVeH, but people still suffered the consequences of those sins:

-- Revised Standard

B`reshiyth/Genesis: 13:13:  Now the men of Sedom were wicked, great sinners against YaHVeH.

B`reshiyth: 19:5:  and they called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we know them."

Now it is clear that the “man of sin” has and will again enforce the changing of YaHVeH’s “times and laws”. This evil and wicked act started again (first time was 4899 FCA/165 or 168 BCE by Antiochus IV) around 5314 FCA/321 CE when Constantine changed YaHVeH’s seventh day Sabbath Law to “Sunday”/1st day of the week (today “many” [Matith`Yah/Matthew 24:5] people say any day in seven is okay and the annual Sabbaths don’t matter, that is NOT true!). The beast power government that Constantine came from also changed YaHVeH’s “times” (seasons) by causing people to celebrate pagan customs annually instead of YaHVeH’s annual Sabbaths. The beast power government that Constantine came from also changed the month that YaHVeH began the New Year. YaHVeH begins the New Year in spring/1st Chodesh/Abib; the beast power government begins the New Year in dead of winter!

It is through the legal systems of man and their governments that laws are made and put into affect. It is by this legal system based on the image of the Beast, Babylonian organization, men have changed YaHVeH’s “times and laws”. The changing of these Laws has been reinforced by a religious power that has made it acceptable to disobey the Creator. This religious power is mentioned in the scriptures as the “Mother of Harlots” (Revelation 17:5) and she has made “many” (Matthew 24:5) drunk with her doctrine. It is clear from the scriptures that the “Mother of Harlots” is a “whore” that is riding this beast government arrangement (Revelation 17:1-3 KJV). It is through the government of the “son of perdition” that the “whore” will cause YaHVeH’s kadoshiym (Body of Yahshua) to be persecuted and murdered. The leader (“son of perdition”) of the beast power government whose deadly wound will be healed will use the “whore” to unite his control. If people of the beast power kingdom refuse to obey the doctrine of the “whore” they will not be marked with his mark as good citizens of the empire. But eventually the one who rules the beast, along with the ten horns (Muslim kings/nations) will turn against the "whore" (Rev. 17:16-17).

“Many” (Mat. 24:5) Christians have confused this “son of perdition” as being a false prophet, but that is not the case; why, because the “son of perdition” is a individual that comes at the close of the age. The false prophet has always been around through the “Mother of Harlots”, so it is clear through history who she is (her seat is in Rome), but the “son of perdition” comes through the deadly wound of the beast power government being healed. It is through stages of generations of men that finally the wound is healed. The healing of that wound is near. The terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center New York and the Pentagon in Washington D.C. has sped up the process of the deadly wound of the beast government of Europe to be healed.

2Thes.2:3… and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

Rev.2:13… even where Satan's seat is: …where Satan dwells.


10/30/6989 [5768] 4th day of the week (12/08/08)

2 Thessalonian: 2:1: Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Rabbi Yahshua Mashiyach, and by our gathering together to Him,

2 Th: 2:2: That you all be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by ruach, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Mashiyach is at hand.

2 Th: 2:3: Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son/ben of perdition;

The “falling away” had already begun when the chosen Messengers died including Shaul (Acts 20:28 – 30) and it became absolutely clear when Constantine I became emperor of Rome that the Masses/"Many" of the "falling away" was multiplied. It will come to its full when the 3rd and final heykal/temple built with the hand of man (Political) is built.  The “falling way” also deals with denying Yahshua and His name (Rev. 2:13; 3:8) and belief in Him as the Lamb of YaHVeH (Yahn/Yohn 1:29) and High Kohen (Iybriyiym/Heb. 7). There are some today who say they believe in the Mashiyach, but will turn from that belief so they can submit to a high kohen anointed by unbelieving “Judaism”. Instead of trusting in Yahshua’s blood they will offer animal sacrifices in His place, which totally makes void the sacrifice and blood of Yahshua. When Yahshua returns He will re-institute those things as indicated by Yechizki’Yah/Ezekiel, but for now our righteousness is complete through belief in Yahshua the Mashiyach (Romans 5) and allowing Him to write the Law/Torah INSIDE the ark on our hearts/minds (Iybriyiym 8:10).

2 Th: 2:4: Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called YaHVeH, or that is worshiped; so that he as el sits in the heykal of YaHVeH, showing himself that he is el.

Now you know the KJV renders the word “God” instead of YaHVeH. But because we have eyes to see with and ears to hear with we know that EL SHADDAI’s name is not “God”. This is what is going to make us, the Body of Yahshua targets for the “son of perdition”, because we are kept in the name of YaHVeH (Yahn 17:11) and don’t deny that Yahshua the Mashiyach came in HIS name (Yahn 5:43). The verse should read as I have changed it to read: “Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called YaHVeH”. In other words the “son of perdition” opposes and exalts himself against those who call on and are kept in YaHVeH’s name. I don’t believe he will have any problem if you are kept under the name of “God” or any name or title that covers up or replaced YaHVeH’s name.

2Th:2:5: Remember you all not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

2Th:2:6: And now you all know what withholds that he might be revealed in his time.

2Th:2:7: For the mystery of iniquity does already work: only he who now allows will allow, until he be taken out of the way.

{-- Revised Standard

2 Thessalonians: 2:6:  And you know what is restraining him now so that he be revealed in his time.

2 Thessalonians: 2:7For the mystery of Torahlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way.}

2 Th:2:8: And then shall that wicked be revealed, whom the Rabbi shall consume with the ruach of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming:

2 Th:2:9: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

2 Th:2:10: And with all deception of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the Truth, that they might be saved/delivered.

2 Th:2:11: And for this cause YaHVeH shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

2 Th:2:12: That they all might be sentenced who believed not the Truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

2 Th:2:13: But we are bound to give thanks always to YaHVeH for you, brethren beloved of the Rabbi, because YaHVeH has from the beginning chosen you to salvation through hagiasmosG38/kadashH6942/purification of the Ruach and belief of the truth:

2 Th:2:14: Whereto HE called you by our message/glad tidings, to the obtaining of the doxa/kabod/respect of our Rabbi Yahshua Mashiyach.

2 Th:2:15: Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which you all have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

The emissaries taught definite traditions that you can be sure had nothing to do with the paganism that Christianity teaches.

2 Th: 2:16: Now our Rabbi Yahshua Mashiyach Himself, and YaHVeH, even our FATHER/AB, which has loved us, and has given us everlasting consolation and well el-pisG1680/tikvahH8615/expectation through charisG5485/ chenH2580/favor,

2Th:2:17: Comfort your hearts, and establish you in every well word and work.

Here is another tidbit of truth, which has been preserved through the pens of the historians. These are facts about the Mother Roman Catholic Church in the west/ and Orthodox Church in the east (Rev. 13:11). The Protestants are her daughters/harlots, they observe many of the very same customs these organizations do (Rev. 17:5). This quote is taken from the Book HISTORY OF THE WORLD PREHISTORY TO THE RENAISSANCE, General Editor Esmond Wright, page 316 chapter 21 under the subtitle The Church and the barbarians, 1st paragraph:

"When the last emperor ceased to rule in Rome, its bishop remained, acquiring the title of pope and attaining the foremost place among the other bishops of the Church. Moreover, as the Roman imperial administration collapsed in the west before the barbarian invasion, the papacy was the most stable institution in Italy to survive and in many ways took the place of the old emperors. The English political philosopher, Thomas Hobbes, said in the seventeenth century, 'the papacy is none other than the ghost of the deceased Roman Empire, sitting crowned upon the grave thereof.' The pope inherited quite naturally from pagan Rome, the costume, ceremonies and administrative court which came to be associated with his office. He was not only the Christian leader and protector of religious orthodoxy but also a leaven of Roman civilization working within the barbarian mass which had overwhelmed western Europe."

Revelation: 2:13: I know your works, and where you dwell, even where Satan's seat is: and you hold fast My name, and have not denied My belief, even in those days wherein Antipas was My trustful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwells.

It is becoming clearer and clearer in my mind in what direction to be looking for the “son/ben of perdition”. I really did not realize until a few years ago the significant part the religion of Islam will play in end time events. One reason why is because the scriptures do not mention the religion of Islam directly. What the Word of YaHVeH does direct us to, is the relationship between Abraham and Yitschaq/Isaac children. Yishmael was born to Abraham by the servant woman Hagar (B`reshiyth/Gen. 16:16). Abraham as well as Yishmael thought that he was to receive the inheritance of the first born ben (B`reshiyth 17:18; 21:9-10). Than the child of promise, which was Yitschaq, born from the woman Abraham loved, Sarah (B`reshiyth 17:9). To Yitschaq was born twins by the woman he loved, Ribqah/Ribkah/Rebekah (B`reshiyth 25:26-27). Esau/Edom, Yitschaq favored but Ribkah loved Ya’akob and so did YaHVeH (B`reshiyth 25:28; Malakiy 1:2-3). Unfortunately it is the religion of Islam that the majority of the descendent's of Yishmael and Esau, the two out-cast beniym of Abraham and Yitschaq. Just as Satan has been cast out of Shamayim (Rev. 12), there is no doubt why he uses the descendent's of these beniym of Abraham and Yitschaq to try and destroy the descendent's of Ya’akob/Yisrael. Read this article for more understanding: 85) Seals and Shophars/Trumpets I believe without a doubt that the “son of perdition” will be what Muslims call the “hidden Imam” or the 12th Imam, and he will becoming from Turkey. Go to this website and read this article, it is very enlightening: The Twelfth Imam

If you don’t know who the “Mother of Harlots” is, I will plainly tell you: The “Mother” is the Roman Catholic west of the empire/Orthodox east of the empire, Church and her “Harlots” are the Protestant Churches. The doctrine that ties them together is the keeping of pagan customs. It is going to take the “great tribulation” before “many” come out of “Christianity” and see and understand the error and lies that the “Mother of Harlots” has taught (Yashayah 29:24). What  you can do now is repent from transgressing YaHVeH’s ruach moral law condensed in the 10 commandments (Shemoth 20), accept the blood of Yahshua Mashiyach to cover your sins, be immersed under water so you can receive the gift of YaHVeH`s Ruach ha’Kodesh. Repent from keeping pagan customs and start keeping YaHVeH`s Sabbaths (V`yakra/Lev. 23).
