Mystery of Iniquity
Examining the Son of Perdition – Part 1
The Shinar Directive Continues Series | Michael K. Lake, Th.D.
In my new book, The Shinar Directive, I connect the Son of Perdition with the historic figure of Nimrod within the Word of God. Nimrod’s directive to both draw all men away from God and possibly launch a war on Heaven itself drew an immediate and personal response from the Almighty. Nimrod’s directive did not die with the confusing of the languages; it was only postponed. Since the time of Nimrod, the Mystery Religions have been laboring under the cloak of secrecy to see his directive fulfilled. The Luciferian Elite are committed to creating the proper conditions on planet Earth for the return of their beloved despotic king, the Son of Perdition.
To gain a better understanding of this Luciferian king, I decided to examine Chapter 2 of Second Thessalonians for myself to see if there were clues unnoticed by researchers that preceded this generation. As we draw closer to the revealing of the Son of Perdition, the sorcerer’s cloak of mystery grows thinner. It is my desire to take the present day truths that are being revealed by the Holy Spirit in our generation to pierce even deeper through the Babylonian haze that surrounds this Man of Sin.
Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
2 Thessalonians 2:1-2 (KJV)
Paul is writing to the Church in Thessalonica. A teaching, whether delivered by the power of some spirit through a false teacher or by letter, was stressing the imminent return of Christ in their day (thus, Paul’s statement that the day of Christ was at hand.) In retrospect some nineteen hundred and sixty-four years later, we can see Paul’s point. A lot of history has happened between A.D. 51 and today. A strategic event, similar to the first rise of the Son of Perdition, must take place.
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;
2 Thessalonians 2:3 (KJV)
Have you ever stopped to think about the life of Noah and his family after the flood? Everyone on the planet knew about the only true God and His judgment on a corrupt world that had been contaminated by the Watchers and through the teachings of their children, the Nephilim. (The Nephilim, according to Enoch, became demons after God’s judgment. This fact puts a whole new light on Paul’s statement regarding the “doctrine of demons.” Hebraically, doctrines are not about creeds; they are about the philosophy or ways that one lives his life.) As mankind moved away from the flood, the family line of Ham went to work, and there was a progressive falling away from God. This slow trickle became a tsunami under Nimrod. At the first revealing of the Son of Perdition, there was a great falling away from the knowledge and ways of God. Since the Almighty tells us the end from the beginning (Isa. 46:10), we will see a similar falling away.
Therefore, we see the prophetic pattern that is revealed after the flood. The whole earth must be filled with the knowledge of God, His ways, and the truth of His Gospel. Then a waning begins. It will be slow at first but will gain great momentum as the unveiling of the Son of Perdition draws ever closer.
Today, this falling away is indeed gaining great momentum. In my youth, I imagined as this happened that there would be no church buildings left in use. Everyone would have left the church, become secular, and worked to empower the Son of Perdition. Although the church buildings of many of the faithful are slowly emptying out, I see many mega churches filled to capacity through another gospel. These churches claim to be Christian, but they have dismissed sin and have made everything permissible under the guise of grace. As we examine the very nature of the Son of Perdition, we will realize the spirit behind his power has already been working behind the scenes to create the theologies needed that have brought about the apostasies of today.
