What if the Restrainer of II Thessalonians, the Holy Spirit who "holds back the lawless man until God takes him away," indwells a man who has lived under various identities since the time of Christ, always moving on when his "agelessness" is discovered? An immortal man, but still just a man, #65533;awed and discouraged over his inability to better succeed at his immense mission: to restrain evil in the world. And what if at a time when the world hangs on the precipice of a third world war, this man were given one final opportunity to do battle with the Evil One?
