False prophet Bruce Warner teaches this twisted doctrine:
"Therefore, it IS reasonable to assume that 'the rapture', which removes the 'Restrainer', occurs 'immediately prior' to the anti-Christ coming into power in his own time at the mid-point of the '70th Week of Daniel'."Scripture says the antichrist will be REVEALED when the restrainer is taken out of the way - it does NOT say this is when he will come into power at the mid point of the tribulation. Obviously the antichrist is revealed when he confirms the seven year covenant which is what starts the seven year tribulation. Notice that false prophet Bruce Warner leaves out verse eight which makes this perfectly clear:
2Th 2:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
2Th 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
2Th 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
And now Daniel 9 which shows the antichrist must be revealed to confirm the seven year covenant which starts the seven year tribulation:
Dan 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
It also needs to be understood the last WEEK is about unsaved Israel and is to deal with them so they will accept Yeshua as their Messiah. This requires that the Restrainer be removed from indwelling of the people and goes back to the same ministry He had before the first Pentocost. The pre tribulation rapture needs to happen before the tribulation since it is the bride's wedding WEEK.
When the rapture happens, false prophet Bruce Warner (and the rest of the false prophets) will either not even notice or they will come up with some explanation why they were left behind.
Finally, why does false prophet Bruce Warner sign his posts "According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus! " if he doesn't believe it will happen for at least 3-1/2 more years???

"HERE IS THE KEY TO THE 'TIMING OF THE RAPTURE'"
The 'key' to the 'timing of the rapture' is the 'timing' of the anti-Christ's coming into his power in his own time. The two 'timings' are connected to one another because the anti-Christ is restrained, or held back, until the 'rapture' takes the "Restrainer out of the way".
So when is the proper time for the anti-Christ to be allowed to come into power in his own time?
"The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months."
These are the last 42 months of the '70th Week of Daniel' just before the 'Second Coming of the Lord'.
Therefore, the proper time for the anti-Christ to come into power in his own time is at the mid-point of the '70th Week of Daniel'.
2 Thessalonians 6-7
"And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way."
Therefore, it IS reasonable to assume that 'the rapture', which removes the 'Restrainer', occurs 'immediately prior' to the anti-Christ coming into power in his own time at the mid-point of the '70th Week of Daniel'.
According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus!
