Ecumenist Greg Laurie writes,
If the Antichrist is close, then Jesus Christ is even closer. He is coming again. The writing is on the wall for everyone to see. (WND)
If only Laurie would take his eyes off the technology section in the newspaper and gaze them upon Jesus’ Olivet Discourse, Paul’s Thesalonians epistles, and the book of Revelation, he would learn that it is rather: If Jesus Christ is close, then the Antichrist is even closer.
Why does Greg Laurie fail to see the plain chronology in the Bible, that the Antichrist must arrive first?
Because his human tradition of pretribulationism blinds him from examining his tradition in light of Scripture.
How sadly ironic is it that pretrib teachers who obsess about the “signs of the times,” will be the very ones who will be in utter shock when the Antichrist arrives. At that point, however, it will be too late for them to go back and warn all their flock that they misled over the decades.
“Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not arrive until the rebellion comes and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction” (2 Thess 2:3).
