Mark and Margaret Huey, and John McKee discuss the prophesied apostasy of 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4. What factors may be seen to accelerate the anticipated abandonment of the faith?
“Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction…”
“This is a plain indication of God’s righteous judgment so that you will be considered worthy of the kingdom of God, for which indeed you are suffering. For after all it is only just for God to repay with affliction those who afflict you, and to give relief to you who are afflicted and to us as well when the Lord Yeshua will be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels in flaming fire, dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Yeshua. These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, when He comes to be glorified in His saints on that day, and to be marveled at among all who have believed—for our testimony to you was believed.”

1. Is Isaiah 11:12-16 being manifested today by Jewish Believers being antagonistic to non-Jewish Believers?
2. 2 Thessalonians 1:5-10 defines eternal punishment as destruction, not torment.
3. Can you please help me understand the role and influence of the Jewish Kabbalah?
