Was the New Testament Church like a modern Pentecostal Church?

The Powerful Delusion: The Coming Tsunami of Spiritism

Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? (2 Thess. 2:5 NKJ) What did Paul tell the Thessalonians that is not in our Bible? We can deduce what it was from the context of 2 Thessalonians 2:7, 9-12 Versus 2 Thessalonians 2:13, 15. It is an antithesis:

Covid 19 Is it the beginning of sorrows?

The only prophets I trust are Moses and Elijah who have yet to appear in Jerusalem in the End Time (Rev. 11:3-6). Those who prophesy the Covid 19 pandemic is the “beginning of sorrows” (Matthew 24:8) are like broken clocks. If they are right, its only because a broken clock eventually tells the correct time.

Of the three established views on the Rapture, pre-, mid- and post-tribulation, only the “pre-wrath rapture” followed by angels gathering the elect from the four winds at Christ’s coming, harmonizes all the Biblical data.
