Q. I was listing to someone who said that we Christians will be here when the anti-Christ comes on the scene because when he said “who has wisdom let him understand”, he was talking about the Church. I thought that would be talking about the tribulation saints, not us. So are we here or home with Jesus?
A. In effect, 2 Thes. 2:1-7 says the Day of the Lord can’t come until the anti-Christ is revealed, and that can’t happen until the Holy Spirit is gone, which means the Church is gone too. So I don’t think we’ll be here when the anti-Christ is officially introduced. In fact, I think we’ll be gone before there’s even a hint as to who he is. But when we look back I think we’ll realize that we knew of him because I think he’s alive today.
