Table of contents



Of course many, many people will reject the Lord during the Trib too. I just wanted to share. Hi Leon, Thanks for your input! Apostasy does mean departure: THE apostasy is when the antichrist stands in the temple and fulfulls the prophecy of the abomination of desolation. He is the ultimate fulfillment of the departure from the truth because he will lead the entire world in a departure from it. I am aware of the alternate definition that some purport means the departure meaning leaving earth in the rapture. But this is wrong.

Apostasia in Greek means "defection, apostasy, revolt" http: The context in the 2 Thess verse refers to the antichrist as the topic, not the general population. The antichrist will depart from the truth and lead the world in defection against the Lord's truth. The rapture is pre-trib anyway from other proof texts. John MacArthur explains the great Apostasy in the Thess verse: As a result of the Rapture occurring Many will realize they missed it and will come to the Lord afterwards And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.

The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. After the removal of the restrainer and the revealing of the man of sin, there will be no more opportunity for salvation for one particular group of people.

This group consists of all unbelievers, inside or outside the church and those who are guilty of apostasy from the truth, after adequately hearing the truth of God's Word, but have willingly and intentionally refused to love that truth. God will send those individuals a strong delusion so that they may never again have an opportunity to believe the truth they refused to love. Salvation during the days of the tribulation will be offered only to those who never had an adequate opportunity to receive the knowledge of the truth or to hear and understand the gospel Rev.

Mario, while the Tribulation will be a time of unparalleled death, it will be a time of unparalleled evangelism. Many, MANY will come to the truth during that time. Yes, it is risky, death may arrive sooner than the person repents, others who have heard and rejected will be hardened. Still others who take the Mark in Rev 13 will never come to the truth.

And of course the delusion you reference, will make things very difficult for many.

But again, multitudes will come to faith in Jesus. We know that at some point God gives them over, and the Hebrews verse kicks in.

But we puny humans never know when that moment will be for any person or group. It's presumptuous to generalize and claim dogmatically that all people who heard the gospel before the rapture will never come to faith. This essay explains more, and has the bible verses.

The Great Apostasy is not the general apostasy we're experiencing now

One apostasy I can think of is that many have confused the writings of Paul into thinking he was talking about doing good deeds when he speaks of "works of the law" - when in fact he was speaking of the Mosaic rituals. So in many churches, religion has become one of belief and lip service only, without changing one's life.

So its interesting Paul calls the antichrist the "man of lawlessness. As the Spirit said expressly that in the latter days some would depart from the faith by giving heed to seducing spirits and serpent theology, "speaking lies in hypocrisy", the whole head is sick and the body with putrifying sores".

The gross darkness on the people has hidden the abomination of desolation standing in the holy place, so men and women continue to "worship they know not what. Unless the Lord shorten these days of apostasy, even the Elect remnant will not be able to endure to the end.

Daniel 12 Reveals When the Second Coming Will Occur!

Alabama Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction , 2 Thessalonians 2: He is speaking of a specific event, "the apostasy" which is the antichrist standing in the temple and declaring himself God. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. An outstanding source of factual information regarding the truth of the Council of Nicea and the limited role played by Constantine.

The use of the narrative voice to convey the setting and the roles is very effective. And the inclusion of more than factual footnotes makes it easy to cross reference any statement with which the reader may take issue. The description of the setting for St. Jerome's translation of the Greek Scriptures into Latin seemed more an afterthought or side story.

Editorial Reviews

While it did give historical context to the celebration of Christmas, it did not make clear the importance and purpose for St. Jerome's translation and writing of the Latin Vulgate, which I thought could have been done without going too far from the path. The condensed section at the end showing the church and its universally held truths that predated Nicea and Constantine by more than years should be required reading for anyone who seeks the historical truth of the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church, untainted by fashionable stories and fictional movies.

I was amazed at the amount of myth and misinformation, concerning the early Church, which I had been taking for granted as accepted fact. Bennett is the anti- Dan Brown, and this book should be on the must read list of any truth seeking Christian. In this book Mr. Bennett carefully studied the myth believed many people that while though the Catholic Church was the church established by Jesus but after a while it fell apart and went into apostasy.

If what those people teach was true, Rod wanted to find the history of how that happened. So to his credit, he began his quest for truth. Very well researched and a powerful, and persuasive must read for all believers.

It's probably not necessary to have read FOUR WITNESSES first, although familiarity with Bennett's style--a blend of block-quotes from dozens of sources, tied together at various points with either narrated historical fact or historical speculation--doesn't hurt. My description might make the book sound like a hodgepodge, but I think it hangs together well; your mileage may vary, of course. Bennett's goal in FW was to refute the argument that there was a Great Apostasy very early in the Church's history, sometime before AD.

In FW, he examined four Apostolic Fathers who were separated by time and physical distance, which made it read like an anthology of four novellas; TATW is much more unified, because Bennett mainly follows one man, Athanasius, who at a certain point seemed to be the only clergyman in the whole of the Eastern Roman Empire not to have fallen for the Arian heresy. I had imagined that the entire text would focus on what happened in at the Council of Nicaea, but in fact Bennett is done with this event about a third of the way through the book, which begins with Antony of Coma during the persecution of Diocletian, and ends nearly a century later with an epilogue featuring Saint Jerome, and introducing Basil, Gregory Nazianzen, and Gregory of Nyssa at relevant points along the way.

I found it a truly exciting read: I hadn't realized how much of the Arian controversy had occurred after the decision of I Nicaea, or how close Eastern Christianity had come to embracing this heresy, or how much the misunderstandings of Christian doctrine found in Islamic teachings the Trinity being the Father, the Son, and the Virgin Mary, for example were influenced by the Arianism that held fast in the Arabian Peninsula even after it had been repudiated everywhere else.

I feel like I have a much firmer grasp on the history of the Church and the Eastern Roman Empire during this period. Highly recommended for lay Christians looking to learn something new about their history! However, his love for--and faith in--the Catholic Church shines through clearly, and he certainly does not try to hide that he believes the Catholic Church of modern times is one and the same as the Church of the 4th century.

However, this will not convince the vast majority of Protestants who subscribe not to a Great Apostasy but to a "gradual apostasy" theory my own phrasing of Why The Reformation Was Necessary. Perhaps Bennett will take on that subject in a later text, but I imagine it would be very difficult to prove satisfactorily, since the goalposts are so easily movable. He is a Christian writing to acquaint other Christians with their own history, and he makes no effort towards "neutrality" in terms of the truth or falsity, rightness or wrongness of the Christian Faith.

I can imagine this bothering me were I not already a believer. Bennett is always very clear when he is speculating, but professional historians and scholars may find themselves annoyed with the liberties taken. I know some writers prefer to cite at the end of a paragraph or section, but in a text with such an extensive bibliography I'd prefer a citation on every single quote. TATW doesn't do this, and I found myself longing for the visual cues at times, but perhaps other readers found FW's system distracting. In an otherwise typo-free text, this discrepancy stuck out.

Perhaps it was only fidelity to the quoted sources, but it bugged me. Look for the Kindle MatchBook icon on print and Kindle book detail pages of qualifying books.

In he married Mary May Booth. They became the parents of eight children. During that time he bought one of the popular new chain-driven bicycles and rode it often. One evening he arrived home an hour late for dinner, bruised, bloodied, and dirty. Near his home was a single-plank bridge across a ditch.

Normally, he dismounted and crossed on foot. But this time he felt he could ride across. He kept at it, crash after crash, until he mastered the maneuver. Elder Talmage was an effective lecturer, and some of his talks and lessons became the basis of some of the books for which he is well-known, including The Articles of Faith. Prior to his call to the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles in , the First Presidency had asked him to write a book on the life and ministry of the Savior. Later, a room was set aside in the Salt Lake Temple where Elder Talmage could concentrate on his writing.

His page book, Jesus the Christ, was published in and has been reprinted several times since then.
