Scripture clearly tells us that the apostasy—the Great Falling Away—must occur before the rapture and I think I know when it will start! The event is clearly listed in scripture as occurring just before the Scripture is revealed.
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 2 Thes 1-3.
Thus the rapture/day of Christ is not the next event because it plainly says, for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first! The falling away must occur first. The NASB uses the word apostasy.
Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first,
Bakers Evangelical dictionary defines apostasy like this; Apostasy [N] Defection from the faith, an act of unpardonable rebellion against God and his truth.
And as I stated above I think I know when the apostasy will start in earnest and even some of the events that will precipitate it. Let me tell you straight up; I think the great falling away will start in September 2015. Let me show you the data and then I will tell you why I believe this to be the case.
There has been a lot of chatter regarding the time around 9/22-24/2015. Many believe this will be a cataclysmic time. Some are predicting a meteor/comet strike, Seal 6 events, the rapture, the beginning of the tribulation, and more. In this post I will present the data/chatter and then give my analysis of the situation from a scriptural basis.
Note: There is a lot of information in this post, and just because I present the information below, does not mean that I agree with it, I will offer a few comments along the way, and give my analysis at the end of the post.
Here is the data/chatter surrounding the dates 9/22-24/2015.
1. A Meteor or Comet Will Hit in the Atlantic Ocean Causing a Tsunami.
Many are predicting that 9/23/15 will be the date that a meteor or comet will hit the earth causing a tsunami with the most likely location being the Atlantic Ocean near the North East coast of South America. Here is one of many videos presenting information to that effect.
In the video above she mentions that her informant tells her that the comet is 2.5 miles wide and is giving off sound/singing. Comet 67P is 2.5 miles wide and is giving off sound. Does that comet sound familiar? It is the comet that Rosetta’s lander Philae touched down on the surface of on 11/12/14. Is this the comet that she is referring to?
There has been a lot of rumors going around about Comet 67P—that it is not a comet, can change trajectory, and has buildings on it—i.e. that it is of alien/ufo origins.
