“2 2 Thes.1 NOW we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. “3
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not “come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.”
Here we are first warned not to be deceived “that the Day of Christ is at hand” This is another name for the Rapture. First there must come a “falling away” which is the Apostasy we see happening right now. Second, the “son of perdition ” ( another name for the antichrist) must be revealed. For sure we will know it is him when he goes into the rebuit Jewish Temple (which has not been rebuilt yet) and commits “the Abomination of Desolation” . He will set up a statue of Himself and proclaim he is God, which is Blasphemy. I am keeping an eye open for any poliyical figure that signs a covenant with Israel for 7 years.
I believe there is no “secret rapture”. Show me one verse about it being secret! I believe Matthew 24:29 is the Rapture. One is taken , one left. Would you like to read my new book for free? “The Coming Great Tribulation” See it on this site, or go to:
