Sample text

Watch for your own soul, and stay close to Jesus and your brothers and sisters in Christ. We, the Church, will continue to occupy, even as Jesus instructed. We will continue to witness, even more courageously. I have noticed that those who are preparing for the Antichrist by storing food, and even searching out caves in which to hide, have lost their zeal for seeing souls saved. They are thinking only of their own survival. Let us who look for the Rapture not become slack in our quest for souls, but be more zealous than ever before.

Tyndale, for example, translated it this way in his first translation from Greek to English. Greek scholars agree that to pinpoint the true meaning of the Greek noun, it is necessary to look at the verb from which that noun is derived. " This root verb is used fifteen times in the Bible, and in only three of those times does it speak of a falling away. " I have had the privilege of consulting several Bibles from the fifteenth century. Some of them present 2 Thessalonians 2:3 as follows: Let no man deceive you by any meanes for [that day shall not come], except there come a departing first, and that that man of sinne be disclosed, (even the sonne of perdition.

Jesus, our Lord and Savior, does not have eyes that are flames of fire. Certainly He does not have a two-edged sword shooting out His mouth, and I trust that those seven stars He holds in His right hand are symbolic, not literal. Nevertheless, certain truths expressed in symbolic language can also have definite literal meanings. John did see Jesus Christ; all the things he described about Him in symbolic language do have meanings that are literally true. Jesus is the Son of God, He is a judge, He speaks the Word as a two-edged sword, and He holds in His hands the power of heaven.
