Ever since the Reformation began at the beginning of the 16th century, there have been steps taken to "come out of her." This book which you should read is part of the final call, and part of "the restoration of all matters" (Acts 3:21). We do not profess that further Light will not come, for indeed, our Saviour will complete that which He has now started, "He will thoroughly purge His threshing-floor . . . He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire" (Matt. 3:12 KJV).
This book serves to unveil the Great Apostasy (as Bible translators like to call it) as it is described in 2 Thess. 2:3-12. It reveals to us the "Mystery of Lawlessness" of 2 Thess. 2:7 RAV. It reveals to us "Mystery Babylon" of Rev. 17:5, of which much is said in the final eleven chapters of the book of Revelation. It unmasks the "Abomination of Desolation" which our Messiah said (in Matt. 24:15 â€” and Daniel as well in Dan. 9:27, Dan. 11:31, Dan. 12:11), will be found to be set up in the "Set-apart Place."
Those who read the newer translations of the Scriptures are very often robbed of seeing what the original Hebrew text meant because of the modern tendency towards a free translation or to use "dynamic equivalents," as the modern translators call it.
An example of this is the most important prophecy or prophetic promise by the Most High that He "shall turn back the captivity (or captives)" of His people, Israel, in the end-time. This fact is missed by those reading most of the newer translations which render this as "restore the fortunes of Israel (or Judah, or His people)." This prophetic promise is found in almost all the prophetic books, as well as in Deuteronomy and Psalms.
The most profound among these prophecies concerning the captivity of Israel are of course found in Acts 7:42-43, Amos 5:25-27, Micah 4:10 and many places in the book of Jeremiah.
Now what is meant by this "captivity"? First and most important of all is to realize that someone is not in captivity by choice, i.e. of his own free will. He is in captivity because someone (or Someone) higher up has decided that he should be there. Nobody who is in captivity wishes to be there, nevertheless he is held captive!
