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 <><
