Satan sits in churches, shows himself as God, and is worshiped, (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4). But, he is another Jesus. Such churches oppose holy life and perfection, (2 Corinthians 11:2-4). False Christs also show signs, miracles, including healings; they deceive even the very elect. In the end, Satan, the devil, the anti-Christ, the deceiver, will be cast into the lake of fire.
"2 Thessalonians 2:2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God." Verse 2&3 refer to the second coming of Jesus Christ. It says that he will not come until two things happen. The falling away of the church has happened already. The second event in verse 4 is happening now. Christians are worshipping another Jesus in churches. They do not know the true Jesus Christ, who wants us to obey his commandments. As verse 3 says that Satan, this "another Jesus", who is worshipped in churches, is not revealed yet, since he is still in the name of Jesus. According to this verse, this false "another Jesus" has to be revealed as false. Christians think that they worship the true Jesus Christ. "2 Corinthians 11:2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. 3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him." In the previous verse we saw that Satan is hiding as Jesus, and churches do not know it. How can we find who is who? These verses give the clue. The true Jesus wants you to be a chaste virgin. There are many verses from the Bible that says the same thing, that the true Jesus wants his people to be holy and righteous. But "another Jesus" says that you cannot become pure as a chaste virgin, just believe in him, and that Jesus loves sinners and so he will take you to heaven. They also teach a "false grace" that they claim will take sinning people to heaven. It is another deception. "Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." We can see that Christians run after Jesus Christ for worldly things, and they take eternal life for granted. So, the miracles, healings, faith, entertainment, excitement, etc, are important to Christians. Many exploiters became preachers and they fit into the mold accordingly, and Satan gives them power. Now, whatever they preach is golden and people are deceived. We cannot reveal this anti-Christ or another Jesus, because God is allowing it until his time, according to: "2 Thessalonians 2:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time." God does not want him to be revealed now, but he wants us to know the truth, so that we may alert the faithful for them to be prepared to receive the bridegroom: as "I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ." Please don't listen to another Jesus or false Christ.
