His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal Job 41:15
Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom. Pro 13:10
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; 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, shewing himself that he is God. 2 Thes 2:3-4
“And who is this man of sin that sitteth in the temple of God, on the very throne of God and proclaims that he, himself, is God? It is none other than self! And self disguises itself in one form or another. Among, those who are engaged in the sins of the saloon, self is a just an openly selfish, unruly character. Among the intellectuals, self is the very polished man of reason. And among the religious philosophers, self is much more that just self. It is a sanitized version of self which is called the "higher self". But, no matter how many ways one tries to slice it, or what view is presented of it, self is still self. But, if one walks the progressive road of salvation of spirit, soul and body, this man of sin is destroyed.”
For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 2 Th. 2:7-9
And what might be the process by which those who would be transformed into the same image and wear the same mantle as Jesus? Might it be to look into a mirror and behold the eyes and countenance of Christ within us? For He becomes part of us and We become part of Him.” – DaySpring from on High:- The Mantle
It is no longer I who live but Christ, The Messiah lives in me.
