It would be wrong. Not right as its not in context.
And heres is why.
Context is vital.
Kept the word of patience, Keeps one from That Temptation.
“"Because thou hast kept the word of my patience", I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.”
Christs teachings,as Revelation ; allows one to stand against Satan's deception.
In this way they're kept from temptation.
Revelation 13, of the second beast, and 2 Thess 2 for instance describes Satan arriving as per Gods plans, pretending to be Savior of the word Jesus and God.
So keep, is already defined for us throughout Revelation and The Bible.
It is never used to remove Christians from The Tribulation. You'd have to understand what The Hour of Temptation is all about.
If they were going somewhere, they'd not have been told to hold fast what they have, prevent those stealing their crown and overcome.
11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
Note: Satan has to be here, for this statement to make sense to us
"I come quickly". Satan arrives before Christ. Satans time is 5 months as per Revelation 9. Christ shortening his deception for the Elects sake, because they'll be here also Matthew 24:22 .
After the two witnesses are killed in the gathering arena. There will only be three days before Christ returns. Revelation 11:8-14 . The passage even tells us which woe it is. So this explains Christ had not arrived yet.
Paul explains that it is The Truth from God that keeps one.
1 Thess 5:4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
Thief is a very negative situation.
The consequence of not understanding Gods word.
Paul did not say the day would not overtake them because they would be removed.
The day would not overtaken them, because they're not in the dark concerning scriptures. It is the Truth on those matters that saves them from temptation.
Thus averting Gods wrath for taking Satans deception, aka the mark.
A Thief only strikes those who least expect them, who are not watching, and at an hour and conditions which is most inconvenient for the victim .
If Christians believe Christ to be here already (to rapture), they wont be expecting The Real Christ at His return at the 7th Trump. They'll come to a rude awakening that they're Satan worshipers.That means the events of the end times, has already struck them as a thief, and Satan made away with their salvation. In their ignorance of Gods words about end times, and their chronological order, they've worshiped Satan thinking hes Jesus.
King James Version
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
“And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.”
1 Thess 5:
5 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 (kjv)
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
The Hour of Temptation is always in reference to the 6th Trump and Satans trials .
10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
The same teaching is called the delivering up in Matthew 24.
Where the Holy Spirit speaks through them; The Elect.
If one has advanced warning that Satan arrives pretending to be God performing miracles, then one cannot possibly find him tempting. In that way they escape deception aka apostasy .2 Thess 2.
Christ gave an equivalent teaching to the Mark of the Beast, in Matthew 24, woe to women with child and give suck in those days. Its easy to understand that If Christ has been away for 2k years, He returns to find His bride with child, it means she was unfaithful. She would become that whore that Satan and his 10 fallen angel kings hate; back in Revelation 17:16.
We have advanced warning of this from God Himself and The Lord Jesus Christ. Why a man made doctrine of rapture, has superseded scriptures is beyond comprehension and is ripe for Satan's use. And he will.
Ezekiel 13: (kjv)
19 And will ye pollute me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my people that hear your lies?
20 Wherefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against your pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly.
21 Your kerchiefs also will I tear, and deliver my people out of your hand, and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunted; and ye shall know that I am the Lord.
“When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
