"Christina - Am I Missing Something?"


 

Hi Christina –

 

After reading your post yesterday I thought I’d share a different understanding of “The Restrainer”.   I believe the word restrainer in 2 Th. 2:7 is referring to the Church (The Bride).         

 

Many do believe the restrainer is the Holy Ghost but, Jesus said in Jn. 14:16 that the Comforter would abide with us forever.  And if the Comforter (Holy Ghost) is taken out at the Rapture, who will convict/draw the unsaved to Christ during the Tribulation?  How do Tribulation Saints get to Heaven?     

 

The Holy Spirit is the one who draws an individual to Christ.  Jn. 6:44, says: “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him… .  Just another thought.

 

God Bless <><
