    • Shalom, Heb 13:8. NO! Not at all! However, the majority HAS already transpired. There are two sets of pronouns provided in the Greek translation of the Olivet Discourse. There are times when Yeshua` is DIRECTLY talking to His students sitting right there before Him on that mountain called Har HaZeitiym, the "Mountain of-the-Olives." These are the second-person, plural pronouns, translated as "ye," "you," "your," and "yours" in the English of King James I of England. The second set are more third-person, plural, even more non-personal pronouns that are spoken when Yeshua`s vision looks out over the expanse of time to the more distant future. This tells me that Yeshua` was not only telling them about the distant future but was also warning them about a more immediate threat that His students and their families would have to face in THEIR lifetimes! Here's an example: Matthew 24:9-14 (KJV) 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. 10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. In verse 9, He is talking directly to His students and uses the terms "you" and "ye." By verse 10, He was already looking beyond their lifetimes and seeing the "many." Therefore, verse 9 was in their IMMEDIATE FUTURE, and verses 10-14 were about the span of time from their time period to the DISTANT FUTURE, ending with "the end." Yeshua` makes this transition in speech several times within the Olivet Discourse. Those times when He was speaking about THEIR IMMEDIATE FUTURE are already fulfilled! The portions that are about the DISTANT FUTURE, especially "THE END," are yet to come. That's as simple as I can make it.
    • The pretrib doctrine is opposition to Christ's word. I don't care about timing other than to show only one scenario exists. Upon further review it's seems possible the phrase is idiomatic. The 'letting' is the witholding, and the continued 'to let' is to withhold for a certain time, until 'taken out of the way' which would refer to passing the predetermined moment when 'to let' has run it's course. I can see how translators rendered this phrase the way they did, 'Katecho' could be construed as 'allow'  and 'ginomai mesos' as 'taken out of the way' is in keeping with the spirit of the preceding thoughts; the beast's true nature is revealed, replacing the covert nature, which is now gone, taking it "out of the way".   Nothing suggests a physical removal from one place to another for any individual or group but there is obvious indication of an event in the literal Greek; "...he be taken out of the way..." refers to this event when the beast is transformed from one state to another. In the beginning the beast is not the same as he will be once the revealing occurs. The mystery of lawlessness will be revealed once the beast proclaims himself to be god, and the person he was is '...taken out of the way...' revealing the true nature and finally paving the way for the 2nd coming; "...ginomai mesos...", emerging from the midst, can have no other meaning. And it assuredly does not mean the Holy Spirit is removed from earth. Or Micheal. Or the church. The idea is emerging from the midst, not removal from one place to another. In any case the phrase, "but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way." has to be understood in the context; that of the return of Jesus, the gathering, the day of Christ unable to come to pass until after the rebellion and the time when the beast proclaims himself to be God.  I do not care what all others say or do. Appeals such as this are meaningless. Fact is more important. Look it up yourself. Get the Koine Greek, run the phrase through any or all of the Greek to English translators on the Internet, see what you find.   
    • Who is the restrainer? Matthew 28:20 "Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world." Amen." Is the rapture the end of the world?
    • It's the saints,ie,the sealed of God who will get the people out of confusion(Babylon) .It is them through whom the Holy Spirit shall speak Mark 13:11 "But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost [Spirit]." These are not some so called tribulation saints,these are those whom know the Word,it's also the time when true tongues will be spoken again. What hour is spoken of here?It's the hour of temptation...   Just wanna say also that the trib will only last 5 months ,time of the locust
    • If true, then how to explain the vast group of saints who came out of great tribulation?
