There is a promise, fixed, by the Word of God. That promise is this. That Gods enemies will be divided, will not coalesce, and will be perpetually confused. It is even God who directs these matters.

This Promise is FIXED by God Himself.

Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
Joh 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Joh 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
Joh 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. 2 Thessalonians 2:8

If the lawless on is revealed, and is consumed by the Spirit of his mouth, and destroyed by the glory of his coming,



Then Why does God afterward promise to send them strong delusion so that they would believe the lie they hold on to? I mean if Satan id destroyed, or the AntiChrist is destroyed, or what ever name that you try to give meaning to this, if they are destroyed, then why the strong delusion afterwards? Perhaps the strong delusion keeps them from hearing of His Spirit? And perhaps the strong delusion keeps you from seeing the Glory of the Lord revealed in Christ Jesus. Perhaps the strong delusion keeps feeds their own pride as they continue to sit in the Seat of Moses judging the Word of God.

2 Thessalonians 2:13-14
But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.


Why is it JLB that you seek forgiveness by the Blood of Christ?

Joh 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
Joh 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

And still, I have no idea what meaning you wished to convey by posting those scripture. Edited

2 Corinthians 3:12-13
Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech: And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished.

6 And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time.
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.
8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming...


Paul expounds upon this individual and him being revealed, and the various aspects of him being revealed in his own time, as well as what he will do when he is revealed.Paul taught them about this individual when he was with them, [verse 5] but now goes into more detail about his deceiving powers, and that God Himself will be allow this strong delusion among those who refuse to believe the truth that Jesus is the Messiah... Verses 6-8 explains about him being revealed and what will be his ultimate destruction; Jesus Christ Himself.

While verses 9-12 explain what he will do and why he is allowed to do what he does.

9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders,
10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,
12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Jesus Christ returns at the end of this age on the last day, whereas this individual will work his deception for a time period when after the Temple is rebuilt, as he will sit in the Temple of God, and revealed himself from that place.

The Temple is the place of the strong delusion that God sends.
The lawless one is the person who works the signs to deceive.

On the last Day, at the end of this age, Jesus will appear for a second time to Gather His people at the resurrection/Rapture, and this lawless one will be destroyed by the brightness of His coming.


Every eye will see Him, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn, for they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. Matthew 24:30, Revelation 1:7

That I may partake of the tree of life.

Why do you need his Blood to partake of the tree of Life. Was it not freely given to you from the beginning?

Gen 3:23 - Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
Gen 3:24 - So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
God will not allow a sinner to partake of the tree of life though their own effort.

Brother, I humbly ask that you remember the blood of Christ and it's power. For we are saved by His blood. Do not err in your thinking. Do not take the blood lightly, please. Do not pass it off with thoughtless comments, or with a rash approach. Remember the sacrifice of our glorious Lord - we are cleansed by His blood. All glory is Gods and by His mercy and grace are we saved. I urge you, humbly, as your brother in Christ to understand the power of the blood and it's redemption.

My question was posed to JLB and it was done so with so with a specific intent, but JLB will not answer the question.

You have willfully misrepresented that I did not answer you, as anyone can see that I did.

from post 74 -

Why is it JLB that you seek forgiveness by the Blood of Christ?
My answer -That I may partake of the tree of life.

to which you asked another question - post 75

Why do you need his Blood to partake of the tree of Life. Was it not freely given to you from the beginning?

My answer - No It was given to Adam in the beginning.



You have flat out willfully misrepresented that I have not answered your question.



The precious blood of Jesus is not to be taken as a common thing.

Now you are spreading your deceitfulness to others in this thread.

Yes you gave these answers. Indeed you did. But mostly they have been a dodge; and so I followed up trying to be a little more specific for you by asking again.

And then why was it not given to you freely? What causes you to need the Blood of Christ so that you may partake of the Tree of Life?

So if you are willing to be honest and just answer the question, Why do you require the Blood of Christ for your redemption so that you may partake of the Tree of Life?
