What's the real meaning of the Greek word 'tachu' in Revelation 22:12 , concerning the RAPTURE?
SUDDENLY, as FAST AS LIGHTNING!!!
American Standard Version, 1901
King James Version, 1611
12 “Behold, I come quickly. My reward is with me, to repay to each man according to his work.
12 Behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to render to each man according as his work is.
12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
The Greek word ' tachu ' used in Revelation 22:12
Besides the known meaning of 'soon' , it also can mean 'soon after' or 'without delay' or 'according to plan'.
I prefer these translations:
And I prefer SUDDENLY, though QUICKLY is also good.
JESUS will come as a THIEF, so the ONLY way to be prepared is to be ready at all times!
Remember therefore how you have received and heard. Keep it, and repent. If therefore you won’t watch, I will come as a thief, and you won’t know what hour I will come upon you.
“Behold, I come like a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his clothes, so that he doesn’t walk naked, and they see his shame.”
