The restrainer revisited in 5778

So here is something I posted from another paper last year. It’s from an older paper from Roger Aus on the Greek/Hebrew word restrain ie restrainer. Its very interesting when looking at this word in light of what’s going on on September 9th/23rd. According to Aus, “shut the womb or make barren” in the Hebrew means to literally restrain. Now when I looked back at this study, with what has been and is going to happen, it got me wondering. As you already know, I 100% with out a shadow of doubt believe this September “sign” is a false one. Not only do I feel it in my spirit but everything that has led up to Jupiter entering Virgo in December 2016 has been completely bad.

 Scripture proves that there is no “rapture” and in order to really believe that this Rev. 12 sign (specifically the catching away of the child) is fulfilling prophecy you need to believe in a pre-trib rapture. I have yet to meet anyone who doesn’t believe in the pre-trib and yet still believes this sign is a good one. I don’t base my opinion on my gut but proof that I have documented for the last year regarding Jupiter and what these occultists are telling everyone. And Scripture is really the only important witness to know if this sign is true or false.

So with that said, the September sign is a false sign. There is no rapture of the Church before Jesus comes back. There is no woman giving birth to the Church at this time (which is a completely ridiculous theory being the Real Church was born on Pentacost). And there is not a child ie Damien, being born from a virgin in the real world to grow up to be the Antichrist. All ridiculous. But what I believe is happening is that this false sign is really pointing to something that will take place later. The Antichrist spirit is being released and just like Judas was possessed by Satan to betray Jesus, Satan will be released from the abyss for a short time to possess this eschatological man of sin. And I believe this word restrain used in  2 Thessalonians when translated to Hebrew speaks volumes of this.

This false sign is connected to the beginning of birth pains and the restraint being taken off of Satan. Now Satan is represented as Saturn in the occult. This is an ancient belief and its not something I made up or something new. Now an interesting thing happens on November 18th (2 months after this false sign) with Saturn. Saturn who is represented as Satan, leaves Ophiuchus (which is called the new 13th constellation) on 11/18/17. Ophiuchus is called the restrainer or the serpent bearer. Saturn was literally restrained for almost 2 years in Ophiuchus to only be loosed after Virgo “births” Jupiter. Then December 20-22, 2020 for 3 days, Saturn and Jupiter have what is called the Great Conjunction or haDybbuk haGadol. I believe this could possible be “the short time”. This is all just speculation on my part but can you see where this is going?

The womb of virgo isn’t “shut up or barren” right now because she is in this false pregnancy. The “restraint” (in this case” will be gone after September. Let me also say that the false Mesopotamian god Hubal’s or hbl in Hebrew (who I’ve mentioned in the past) definition according to some is “to be pregnant, fetus, travail or conceive”. Interesting right? So this brings me to the study below. But before that, let me show you another connection from Aus’ paper with the man of sin slaughtering a bull, Isaiah 66 and 2 Thessalonians. This is an excerpt from my book from page 346.

“We see a connection with the man of lawlessness of 2nd Thessalonians 2 and Isaiah 66 and slaughtering an “ox”. Roger Aus states “The phrase ó άνομος, “the lawless one,” in 2 Thess 2:8 may derive from the same Greek phrase in Isa 66:3, ó δε άνομος, used to describe him “who slaughters an ox,” in the LXX but not in the MT compared to “him who kills a man.” This is all the more probable since such people are among those who will be put to shame (v 5); they are the “opponents” of the Lord unto whom he will render recompense (v 6). The Greek for “opponents,” as noted above, is most probably used to describe the “man of lawlessness” in 2 Thess 2:4 (ó αντικείμενος), who in turn is the same figure as ó άνομος in 2:8.” (GOD’S PLAN AND GOD’S POWER: ISAIAH 66 AND THE RESTRAINING FACTORS OF 2 THESS 2:6-7; JBL 96/4 (1977) 537-53; page 541)

The Restrainer

Holy Spirit, Michael, the Church, Governments or GOD. Which is it?

Here is a interesting view that I had never heard on the “restrainer”. To “shut the womb” or “to make barren” in the OT is literally to “restrain”. This is an interesting paper from 1977 that ties in Isaiah 66 with 2 Thessalonians 2. It brings together the restraining, birth pangs, man of sin and the Day of the Lord. I had also found a interview with Michael Heiser (after reading this paper below) who also mentioned this paper and agreed with Roger Aus on who the restrainer is. In context of scripture and the parallels, it makes a lot of sense. 

Isaiah 66:9 “Shall I bring to the birth and not cause to bring forth? says the Lord; shall I, who cause to bring forth, shut the womb? says your God.”

Here are a few excerpts from his paper..

“The Hebrew for “shut” in “shut the womb” of ν 9 is, “to restrain,” “to retain,” “to hinder,” “to stop,” “to shut up,” “to keep away,” “to detain,” “to rule over.” It is important to note here, first, that it is God who is the subject of the verb “restrain” (v 9).”

“The author of 2 Thessalonians used Isaiah 66 as the main background for  his portrayal of Jesus’ final coming in 2 Thessalonians 1, and also in 2:4. He then employed the term κατέχβιν in 2:6-7 because it was a direct translation, not a paraphrase (the LXX’s “to make barren”), of the verb ΊΧΙ7, meaning “to restrain,” a term he knew from Isa 66:9 and needed for his explanation of the delay of Jesus’ return. It also fit the setting of his letter eminently, for it too was associated in the Greek bible with birth pangs, tribulation and the Day of the Lord. Finally, there even was LXX precedent for God as ó κατέχων.”

“While other passages from the pseudepigrapha, the NT, patristic and rabbinic writings also point to God as he who “restrains” or “keeps” the primeval monsters or the Messiah until the end time, the latter a motif quite similar to that found in 2 Thess 2:7, they have for the most part been dealt with in detail elsewhere and need not be surveyed here. It should also be noted that the patristic writers Theodore of Mopsuestia and Theodoret of Cyrus expressly state or assume that God is “he who restrains” in 2 Thess 2:7. These passages, especially those which speak of God’s “keeping” the Messiah until the appointed time, supplement the probability given in the above interpretation of Isa 66:9 that the ó κατέχων phrase in 2 Thess 2:7 should be interpreted theocentrically.”

“The author of 2 Thessalonians, whether Paul or a member of his “school,” writes in 2:5 that the addressees know what is restraining Jesus’ return, his Day. Even if they had not been instructed as to the exact identity of ó κατέχων, they could have understood it in the Greek text by reasoning that if they are already acquainted with the neuter το κατέχον, God’s plan that all men be saved, the masculine form ó κατέχων would be directly related to this, that is, the restrainer is God.”

“The above interpretation of the κατέχβιν motif in 2 Thess 2:6-7 does not solve all the difficulties inherent in the text. There are too many variables in these verses to attain any absolute certainty. Nevertheless, the solution offered above has two major arguments in its favor. First, it means that το κατέχον and ό κατέχων are intimately related. God, he who now restrains the Day of the Messiah, does so because of his plan or will that the gospel first be brought to all men. Secondly, it is based on an OT text, Isaiah 66, which is employed elsewhere in 2 Thessalonians. The author then employed imagery from the same OT chapter for his description of the restraining factors in 2:6-7.”
