2nd Thessalonians 2, v7, has been pecking at my mind for weeks. Peck-peck-peck… mystery of lawlessness… Paul…sent to the gentiles (non-Hebrews) Pharisee of pharisees… world-class Law teacher… hand-picked by Yahusha to teach the non-Hebrews… a Law scholar…
John 8:31 – “To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
The truth will set you free. Yahusha said that, yet most people either reject it immediately as a religious platitude, or misunderstand it, thinking that it means that Yahusha (the Truth), will free us from our life of bondage to sin.
There is more to it.
