2 Thessalonians 2:3-8 New International Version

3  Don't let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness[1] is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. 4  He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God's temple, proclaiming himself to be God. 5  Don't you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? 6  And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. 7  For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. 8  And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.
