The Bible doesn’t mention “the great falling away”
The Greek word “apostasia” refers to the fall of Satan
By Craig C. White
I hear it more and more; Christians referencing “the great falling away”. The Bible doesn’t mention “the great falling away”. Almost every Christian assumes that the Greek word apostasia that is translated as a falling away in 2Thessalonians 2:3 refers to the apostasy of the Church. Hold on one minute. A falling away refers to the casting out of Satan from heaven.
2Th 2:3 KJV Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
The Greek word “apostasia” is used three times in its masculine form in Mat 5:31, Mat 19:7, and Mar 10:4. In these three verses “apostasia” always means “divorce”. Apostasia is used twice in its feminine form in Acts 21:21, and 2Th 2:3. It is translated as “forsake” and as “a falling away”. Apostasia means to move something away from you in order to disassociate from it.
In 2Thessalonians the Apostle Paul is telling us that Satan must fall from heaven to earth and that the Antichrist must be revealed as he sits in the temple of God showing himself that he is God before the Tribulation period can begin. This has already happened. On July 24th 2020 Turkish President Erdogan sat in the Hagia Sophia Cathedral in Istanbul Turkey exalting himself above Christ. Turkish President Erdogan has been officially revealed as the Antichrist. According to 2Thessalonians the Tribulation period can now begin.
