    Jim read Ezekiel 13 and you will learn that preachers who dream up things out of their own minds. It also talks about prophets but male and female that hide Gods plan of salvation from his out reached loving hands and arms and then goes into those preachers who God hates that teach his children to fly to save their souls.

    Paul is encouraging those believers that God will avenge those who are persecuting them. Our good Lord has it all under control whether it seems like it or not. The rapture will take place, the man of sin will be revealed and finally the Lord will take His vengeance We who are truly born again do not need to worry at all or be afraid. We are the object of Christ's love! His body and bride!
