The Antichrist is currently being restrained by a supernatural force. Who is the Restrainer? The Holy Spirit or someone else?
A great deal of controversy exists over who or what restrains the Antichrist. But a more important question is WHEN does the Restrainer act?

Nelson: One of our readers asked a question why the restrainer could not be the Church or the Holy Spirit. This is a common misconception of those who follow the pretribulation rapture theory. I promised a post to explain this fallacy. Another reader, fellow author David Montaigne, provided me with this quote from his recent book which did most of my work for me! So I am posting it as a guest blog. After David’s fine teaching on who is the restrainer, I add a few thoughts of my own.
