2 Thessalonians 2:3, Acts 20:30-31 ...that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first...of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.
This section will be primarily concerned with the "falling away from the truth" which is not possible in a false religion that never had the truth to begin with. A "falling away" alludes to the idea that at some point there was a soundness within it, hence a falling away from the truth is only possible from within the visible church, where there actually was truth at one time.
The buzzword of the day is "Unity" but it is at the expense of truth, and is just one of signs the long prophecied apostasy or "falling away", is nearing completion. The problem is that the characteristics are different than many had imagined. With its leavenous manner, the falling away has been a thorough working of error throughout the whole system, so much so that most in the visible church do not even recognize the gospel. This is why it is imperative for a person to be prepared to stand alone with Christ at present.
In these last days of the church on earth, we are in the period where the visible church is being entirely transferred to the heathen for the Great Tribulation period. This must happen so that after the rapture of the saints, church will be business as usual for the one great political-ecclesiastical system of that time, known as 'Babylon the Great-Mother of Harlots'. After the rapture, the odd person may be missing from the visible church here or there, but their absence will be easily explained away by the left behind religious leaders. But none to worry, having been prophecied for so long, it wasn't going to happen any other way. Though conditions within the visible church are very bad, we must expect it, and be fully prepared to stand alone with Christ, come what may.
At that I must leave you with a not so subtle nor gentle warning:
