He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.

2 Thess 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.(NKJV)

Ive been thinking about this verse a lot lately in conjunction on what I have been writing on Rick Warrens new religion etc..
Some folks believe this verse refers to the church and the church will be taken out of the way only when the rapture happens.
Not to get into a side debate but I dont really believe in a pretrib rapture because of how Matt 24 reads.
However if a pretrib rapture happens I am willing to go.
So others understand this restraint to be some force from God: the preaching of the gospel or the working of the Holy Spirit through God’s people.

That being said I believe that the he that is taken out of the way is The Holy Spirit.
And believe it or not this is happening now.
What did Jesus say about the Holy Spirit?
John 14:26
""But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you."

Now we know from Rick Warrens actions in starting his new religion that Rick does not use the Holy Spirit but the advice of unsaved people on how to start a church.
That action comes from satan our enemy not the Holy Spirit so we can see the roots of Rick Warrens new religion are evil.

The Word Faith crowd is just as bad because even though they talk about the Holy Spirit a lot they also declare themselves to be little gods.
And they also often refer to the Holy Spirit as some sort of force or power.
The Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Trinity.
A Person is not a mystical force.
This also taken TD Jakes and UPC out of the picture they have eliminated the Holy Spirit through unbelief in Him.

Seeker sensitive Hybels, Schuller etc.. uses manmade efforts such as those used by Warren instead of using the Holy Spirit to lead them into truth through Gods word.

Many really do not see that The Holy Spirit is being taken out of the way and being replaced by a one world man-made religion.

And the sad thing is they are still calling this Christianity.

The Bible warns of this in
2 Thess 2:11-12
"And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

This all is proven when you look at the state of Christianity here in America as well as around the globe.
Where is the fruit?
According to a number of polls I looked at including Barna, Gallup, Wikpedia between 67 and 85% of people in America state they are Christian.
Where is the fruit.
The fruit that is showing has a lot to do with Rick Warren and others man made version of Christianity which has taken the Holy Spirit out of the way and been replaced by man made versions mere shadows of the church our Lord Jesus started.
A church where every fleshy desire is stroked.

One of the saddest things is a majority of our own pastors have removed the Holy Spirit from their sermons and teaching by merely cut and paste, buy or steal sermons off the internet and other sources.
They are depending on Rick Warren and other to lead them into all truth instead of God The Holy Spirit.

You followers of Rick Warren and this new religion should take 2 Thess 2:11-12 to heart before its to late.
