"The Man of Sin" and "the Man of God" The "man of sin", even the "son of perdition" [as Judas was a type; John 17:12; an inside betrayer (Luke 22:48; John 6:71, 12:4, 13:2), even with a "kiss" (Matthew 26:48-49; Mark 14:44; Luke 22:47-48), in other words, it shall be that which outwardly claims to follow Jesus, or be like Jesus]: 2 Thessalonians 2:3 - Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away [αποστασιαG646 N-NSF (apostasia)] first, and that man of sin be revealed (αποκαλυφθηG601 V-APS-3S (apokalupsthe)), the son of perdition; There were/are many antichrists (2 Corinthians 11:13,15; 1 John 2:18), as well as a head (ultimately satan himself, who will manifest and personate Jesus Christ; 2 Corinthians 11:14). Even as, there is also the "man of God": 2 Timothy 3:17 - That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. Is the "man of God" one man and/or many? Just as Jesus is the Head, yet He also has a "body" (Romans 11:16, 12:4-5; 1 Corinthians 10:17, 12:12-14,18,20,26-27; Ephesians 5:30; Colossians 1:18; Hebrews 10:5, etc) the True Temple. So too also, in the counterfeit, Satan (Root) and his body (branches) (Malachi 4:1), the counterfeit Temple. Look: 2 Thessalonians 2:4 - Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. The "temple of God"? 1 Corinthians 3:9 - "... ye are God's husbandry, [ye are] God's building." 1 Corinthians 3:16 - Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 1 Corinthians 3:17 - If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which [temple] ye are. 1 Corinthians 6:19 - What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 2 Corinthians 6:6 - And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in [them]; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Ephesians 2:21 - In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: 1 Peter 2:5 - "Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house ..." Revelation 3:12 - Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, [which is] new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and [I will write upon him] my new name. Jesus own "Body" is the Temple: John 2:21 - But he spake of the temple of his body. Yet there is more to it: Revelation 11:19 - "And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament..." See also the True Heavenly Temple - Exodus 25:40, 26:30, 27:8; Hebrews 8:5, 9:23; Revelation 11:19 and so on. Consider some images found online: A "man" robed in white, dipped in blood, wearing the blood shoes, seated higher than any other (upon a raised Dais, 7 steps), on a Great White Throne, surrounded on either side by two golden Cherubim, and outside of those four Living creatures, and the 'body' before him, in Red/Purple, gold, costly array and so on... http://oi39.tinypic.com/15yvlz9.jpg Where is the worship of the Dragon focused? On earth...: Revelation 12:9 - "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth ..." Where is 'Jesus' if He is the 'Host' in the priest hands? On earth... http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_71ZPiLxOVfU/SkeboUApWTI/AAAAAAAADlI/IyTInKSYX9g/s1600/VesperPeterPaul8.jpg And if anyone knows who Roman Catholicism's 'Mary' actually is (even that apparition, that messenger of light; 2 Corinthians 11:14), for 'she' is in the same place, notice: http://www.sanctuaryofthedivinemercy.org/resources/headers/default-header.jpg Actual Size: http://bp0.blogger.com/_YxeBwzO25J8/SFFRlqSD-WI/AAAAAAAAAFk/CfpZ7YVxNFY/s400/MaryMonstrance2.jpg More: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_PdZZ5IfdnsU/SJu4Z8hhdhI/AAAAAAAAAco/GO01XtpZXYM/s400/sign-monstrance.jpg http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_YxeBwzO25J8/SFFRQ1By4_I/AAAAAAAAAFc/7H6w1ymMO9E/s1600/MaryMonstrance1.jpg http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2765/4102464783_9d1fc299a0_o.jpg The 7 Golden Candlesticks? http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_71ZPiLxOV...ABC8/S08o4YSsBq8/s1600/PeterundPaul2008+5.jpg http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_71ZPiLxOV...BE8/-pLk7SocGaY/s1600/PeterundPaul2008+20.jpg http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_71ZPiLxOV...BFU/HmXWO6OsU_E/s1600/PeterundPaul2008+23.jpg http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_71ZPiLxOV...BEs/ag5NXkoPJnw/s1600/PeterundPaul2008+18.jpg Sub-priests, under a Highpriest (of which we now have a pope-emeritus, and current pope, as it was in the days of the Crucifying of Christ, a Caiaphas and Annas): http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_71ZPiLxOV...AADlg/zYDF-tfRF5c/s1600/VesperPeterPaul14.jpg Service with Incense (in a golden Censor, like in Revelation) before the Altar, 7 Golden Candlesticks by a Highpriest: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_oTH9ebyg9qU/R006-PXtofI/AAAAAAAAARs/ttHeYse7A98/s400/pap_20071125_alt.jpg http://www.catholicvoiceoakland.org/2008/2008images/2008_0421_00413.jpg http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_i8lNvcwkR...AxU/daqseUjREz4/s1600/PopeBenedictIncense.jpg http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_t2Ry7I5DN...ytpzLU9gj7o/s1600/Pope+Benedict+-+incense.jpg http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_qSdHJD_kZtg/TM63Tgb0FwI/AAAAAAAABq4/B23fjlmqXBI/S230/Incense.jpg http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-UQa2sOGhnG4/TbD1fQ_6N8I/AAAAAAAABl4/am-OEWqKu84/s1600/incense.jpg A 'sacrifice', 'bread' and the 'glory' (of the sun): http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c305/benodette/Q4 09 - Q1 10/Dec31VespersGetty.jpg http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2128/2438231424_273e033cb7_z.jpg The Laver: https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-EASFr7pb27M/TXuArHeR2vI/AAAAAAAAAe8/PR4IrUhOfnw/s1600/c.jpg http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-7QcTC7NrXo4/TdKPwokMwYI/AAAAAAAAAIw/sifZG3ZqT8E/s1600/DSC_0049.JPG http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_6dKQTchkJ...7_M_rP3GaU/s1600/Mount+Carmel+Church+(15).JPG Even the foot, 'dipped in blood': Psalm 68:23 - "That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of [thine] enemies..." http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-6Y43qiHf92E/URqUJ7kjioI/AAAAAAAAPwA/gkB5nWNDr_4/s1600/pontiff.jpg Wearing the 12 Gemmed Breastplate of Judgment of the Highpriest: http://www.mostholyfamilymonastery.com/Paul_VI_pictures/ephod.jpg http://www.mostholyfamilymonastery.com/Paul_VI_pictures/P6ephod.jpg http://www.mostholyfamilymonastery.com/Paul_VI_pictures/ephodpaul6_dec2005.jpg Who else is wearing it (that 'messenger of light' again; 2 Corinthians 11:14): http://oi61.tinypic.com/t63xfq.jpg http://vultus.stblogs.org/virgo sac imago.jpg Who this really is a sculpture of?: http://mimlay.com/blog1/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/our-lady-of-the-angels.jpg http://cleansingfiredor.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/mary_sculpture.jpg http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3014/2713177618_17608131ca_z.jpg Notice the two Compartment room, separated by wall or curtain/veil (a counterfeit Holy and Most Holy Place) with a throne on one side, for 'confession', where 'man' is sitting (seated, enthroned) 'in the place of' God: https://sp.yimg.com/ib/th?id=JN.oF/oYHqzozYeC+la59WMQw&pid=15.1&P=0 https://sp.yimg.com/ib/th?id=JN.Kpa2PrWjorTvAuzBJe0cZw&pid=15.1&P=0 https://sp.yimg.com/ib/th?id=JN.J87iZ+llrwaEKJdFiI9Syg&pid=15.1&P=0 http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-gY_cFcgpR...ADxk/CbGcE_cKdjE/s1600/confessionandjesus.jpg http://cathoolic.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/Papal-Confession.jpg https://sp.yimg.com/ib/th?id=JN.ZPRvGyrmThhZ2jrAbdREoA&pid=15.1&P=0 https://sp.yimg.com/ib/th?id=JN.QYAXsULP6241XBq5mubVHQ&pid=15.1&P=0 https://sp.yimg.com/ib/th?id=JN.KLUR0kBh8uoGuxwrdcNtRg&pid=15.1&P=0 https://sp.yimg.com/ib/th?id=JN.Y3Bk0LgA4jBkXad3+Iy6+w&pid=15.1&P=0 Crowned with Glory: http://cdn.breitbart.com/mediaserver/Breitbart/Big-Peace/2013/Pope/pope_francis_halo_reuters.jpg http://0.tqn.com/d/catholicism/1/0/F/6/-/-/Pope-Benedict-Halo.jpg http://www.stanthonymessenger.org/getImage.aspx?ImageID=470 Claiming to be the Shepherd: http://bustedhalo.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/5WaysFrancis-flash.jpg Walking upon the Waters: Revelation 17:15 - "...
