2 Thes. 2 3Quote : ------- " in a lot of translations it’s called the falling away or the “apostate Church! He said that the Greek word seemed to also mean “departing” which would be more evidence for the pre – tribulation raptureQuote : ------- " One of the roots of the Greek word apostasia in 2 Thes. 2:3 is aphistemi. It can mean to withdraw, depart, or remove, in addition to falling away. Before the King James was published, departure was the accepted translation for apostasiaQuote : ------- " in verse 7 ( 2 Thes. 2: 7 ) he said that before the anti- Christ can be revealed the restrainer has to be taken out of the way (literally taken from among). This restrainer is widely accepted to be the Holy Spirit resident in the Church. If so Paul was telling them that the church will have to be gone before the anti-Christ can be revealed.Be ready -- WATCH AND PRAY -- the signs are here in full blown active movement -- the season is now in full breed --- we are not awaiting for the anti-christ instead we are anxietly waiting for the shout, " Come up hither." --- AMENAs we all know the world leaders want a peace treaty finalized by the end of 2012 according to the Quartet http://www.quartetrep.org/quartet/news-entry/tony-blair-and-quartet-envoys-meet-with-israeli-and-palestinian-negotiators/--- truly, we will not witness this false peace treaty signed by the anti-christ --- and as quoted above you can read by Holy Scripture that we are snatched, departed, removed away ( 2 Thes. 2:3 ) prior to the signing of this peace treaty --- there can possibly be a gap in between from the Rapture to the start of the tribulation in which starts by confirming the covenant ( Daniel 9:27 ) which many believe will take place in late 2012 as we read in our World News Headlines Today ...Any day now Jesus will call us home http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3GRqDXRKKY&feature=channel_video_title -- see you in the clouds , God Willing ---Matthew 26:41 -- "Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak."Luke 21:36 --- 'Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man."Revelation 3:11 -- "Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown."KEEP IN MIND THAT THERE IS NO PARTICULAR EVENT THAT NEEDS TO TAKE PLACE FOR THE RAPTURE TO HAPPEN !!!Mind you also that the Rapture does not kick off the tribulation. The tribulation does not begin until the Antichrist makes a peace treaty with Israel ( Daniel 9:27 ). That is the actual event that starts the tribulation. This goes to show us how close we truly are to the Rapture happening at any moment. " WATCH AND PRAY FOR OUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH "
