  3. Watchman Nee's Understanding of the Rapture

    Tribulation. All that nothing I posted is the meaning of the word.
  4. Watchman Nee's Understanding of the Rapture

    Which part of the definition of the word do you not understand? 2347 thlípsis – properly, pressure (what constricts, rubs together in a narrow place that "hems in"); tribulation, focusing on internal pressure that causes one to feel confined (restricted, "without options"). 2347/thlipsis ("compression, tribulation") brings the challenge of also coping with the internal pressure caused by the tribulation, especially feeling there is "no way of escape" because "hemmed in." Dealing with 2347/thlípsis ("compression, tribulation") is principally an "inside-out" matter. All pressure is ultimately internal and only truly dealt with by the Lord's inworking of faith. Accordingly 2347 (thlípsis) and 4102/pístis ("faith, God's inworked persuasion") are very closely connected.

    The word mean pressure, that is what tribulation is. It has nothing to do with judgement or wrath of God, it is all about what the enemy is doing for that 3 1/2 year period he is waging war on the saints.
  6. WHAT IS THE FALLING AWAY

    Yes, and Paul is pretty clear about it in the passage I think. II Thessalonians 2:9 The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, 10 and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.
  7. 17 So I hated life, because what is done under the sun was grievous to me, for all is vanity and a striving after wind.
  8. Watchman Nee's Understanding of the Rapture

    The tribulation is not about God's judgement, or His wrath. His wrath comes afterward, at the end, following the great pressure that is applied by the enemy. We don't serve a God of pressure, He isn't pressuring anyone into believing in Him, or there would be no free will.
  9. WHAT IS THE FALLING AWAY

    No, I think you are missing the timing because you are overlooking what is said. What you overlook, is what He said in verse 12, lawlessness is increased. When does that happen? What increases lawlessness? Matthew 24:9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name's sake. 10 And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. 11 And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. 12 And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But the one who endures to the end will be saved. How about this? I Timothy 4 Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, 2 through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared,3 who forbid marriage and require abstinence from foods that God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. And then there is this. Hebrews 6:4 For it is impossible, in the case of those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have shared in the Holy Spirit, 5 and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6 and then have fallen away, to restore them again to repentance, since they are crucifying once again the Son of God to their own harm and holding him up to contempt. Really this begins in Hebrews 5, at verse 11, with a warning against apostasy, on which the writer says "on this we have much to say". What you should take note of in all of this, is the Greek word, being the same one that you attempt to alter the meaning of in II Thessalonians. Scripture clearly defines the meaning of the word, and what it represents, and by attempting to make it represent the same thing as harpazo you are doing a disservice to the truth. God bless

    This really is the crux of the matter, so many don't seem to understand what the tribulation is. The word tribulation in Greek is as follows. 2347 thlípsis – properly, pressure (what constricts, rubs together in a narrow place that "hems in"); tribulation, focusing on internal pressure that causes one to feel confined (restricted, "without options"). 2347/thlipsis ("compression, tribulation") brings the challenge of also coping with the internal pressure caused by the tribulation, especially feeling there is "no way of escape" because "hemmed in." Dealing with 2347/thlípsis ("compression, tribulation") is principally an "inside-out" matter. All pressure is ultimately internal and only truly dealt with by the Lord's inworking of faith. Accordingly 2347 (thlípsis) and 4102/pístis ("faith, God's inworked persuasion") are very closely connected. Are you sure you want to go with God being the cause of this? Because if that is the case, then toss free will right out the window! Does God pressure us into belief?
  11. WHAT IS THE FALLING AWAY

    What doesn't stand up is trying to rework scripture to support a theory, because scripture supports itself, as can be found in the very words Jesus spoke. Matthew 24:9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name's sake. 10 And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. 11 And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. 12 And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But the one who endures to the end will be saved.

    I think the biggest issue I see today amongst Christians is the focus is on the wrong things. Instead of dwelling on the negatives we should be looking at the blessings in our lives. I could tell you my personal tale, and most find it a tragedy, but the truth is, I have never been happier. If you have a roof over your head and food in your belly, you have much to be thankful for. Live in the day you are in, and do not worry about tomorrow, this life is never going to be easy. God bless Philippians 4: 11 Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. 12 I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. 13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
