  1. Thank you for this timely teaching. I have been been meeting with a professed brother in Christ who has decided the body of Christ must go through the Great Tribulation. He now believes that the church will be taken up from the earth to meet Jesus the Christ in the air as He comes in His Second coming. And after meeting Him in the air the church will immediately turn around and return to earth with Christ. My heart breaks for my friend because he has a tendency to follow any strange doctrine taught by man. I have been praying for him because he seems to be a double minded man. Your explanation is what the Holy Spirit has convinced me concerning the Rapture as I have been studying Scripture. And I saw the hand of God at work to reassure me of my teaching on the subject thanks to your article on the subject. May the Lord of Heaven and Earth, the Lamb of God, the Lion of Judah continue to bless your ministry. Sincerely, Ken Keslar

  2. In reading though The Great Deception I kept saying, check, check, check. But then as Mr. Levy addressed 2Th2:3, “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed.” and afterwords makes a declarative statement about apostasia, he never addresses what Paul writes in 2Th 2:6-8 “And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains [will do so] until He is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.” – 2Th 2:6-8

    Now Mr. Levy does mention 1Thess 4:16-17, “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.” However, Mr. Levy forgot to point out that The Church will never know, let alone see, who the Antichrist is. We will be taken away by the Holy Spirt, just as Paul says in the second half of verse 7 of 2Th Chapter 2, “only He who now restrains [will do so] until He is taken out of the way.” And so it is only then that the Antichrist will be revealed. And since the “He” that Paul is speaking of is The Holy Spirit, Paul is clearly showing that when He goes, WE GO! That is when “the Church,” the “Bride of Christ,” is snatched from off the earth.

    And this fact Paul had written to the Ephesians, and shared and taught to all the Churches, that we are sealed, we are guaranteed, until the redemption of the purchased possession. “13 In Him you also [trusted], after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.” – Eph 1:13-14 Come quickly, Lord! And until then… God bless Israel, and God bless Israel My Glory!

  3. This universal false religion we are witnessing sweeping the church is looking very much to me like the falling away described. My concern is the deception is very cunning, don’t underestimate the entity behind this. He is the master at deception and lies. Seems to me the masses are falling away, following false teachings. The non Roman and Roman churches are loaded with man made false teachings and are all Coalescing-emerging as one massive false church.
