We live in perilous times! We were told that they would be (2 Timothy 3:1). And yet, day after day, it is difficult to watch the moral and spiritual decay of our Christ-rejecting culture. But that doesn't mean that God is not still operating. The mystery of lawlessness is undoubtedly at work, but The Restrainer has not yet been taken away!
2 Thessalonians 2:7 - "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."
Although some attempt to debate what the "restrainer" is, Scripture is clear: it is the Holy Spirit, which indwells and works through born-again believers in Jesus Christ.
In a Barry Stagner and Amir Tsarfati "Bible Bite," they explain:
"The word "restrain" means; to hold back or hinder the progress of. What a thing to consider in times such as these. As we see evil men growing worse and the love of many growing cold, the advance of loveless hearts and evil actions is being held back by the Holy Spirit working through the church," they write. "He is also holding back and hindering the progress of the rise of the antichrist to power, who is described as the lawless one."
"While many would consider the absence of the church on earth to be a blessing, the holding back of lawlessness that will be removed when the church is raptured will usher in a time like the world has never seen," they explain. "We are already seeing evil called good and good called evil. Only the Holy Spirit's purifying and preserving work through the Church is holding back complete and utter lawlessness."
This is why Harbingers Daily has added a new section to our newsroom called "The Restrainer." In this section, you will find good news stories that show that the Holy Spirit is still operating and working through Believers to delay the decay and reach the lost.
We hope that it will encourage and remind you to "not grow weary of doing good" (Galatians 6:9). As Barry and Amir conclude, "There is still time to bring God glory here on earth, but it’s running out... Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus!"
