"Pat Robertson says there is no raptrue only second comming!!!!!!!"

HI Doves
Has anyone been watching the 700 Club this week?  Signs of the times. Monday through Friday.  Pat Robertson says there is no secret rapture.  He based it upon Matt. 24:22.  Time will be shortened for the sake of God's chosen ones.  He said "right there it is in the Bible".  He said that if the Lord didn't shorten the days when all of these things happen that even "HIs own people" would not survive.  He said he knew people would be upset with him but "that is what the Bible says".
I may be wrong but I always thought that 2 Thess. 2:7 was talking about the Holy Spirit being removed.  If that is true that the Holy Spirit is removed then how could we be left here?  The Lord certainly would not leave us in the world without his spirit.  He said he would never leave us or forsake us.
I think that he just based his thoughts on just that one verse.  If you start at verse 15 I think that is talking about when the anti-christ comes into the temple and claims to be God.  I think that the days will be shortend because there will be "christians" that come through the great tribulation.
What is the opinion of the Doves?  Correct me if I am wrong.  Pat believes that Jesus will come at the 2nd comming for his people and there is NO rapture.
