In His Parousia (presence not coming)

Parousia comes from the verb PAREMI which means "at hand," "to be present". The Vine's
dictionary incorrectly defines Parousia as either presence or coming.   Vine introduced this
error to support his strong belief in the pre-trib rapture doctrine. Consider: I am present,
here and now, with I am coming but I am not here but will be sometime.  The two meanings
are diametric.  Greek is a very precise language. If the bible says present it means present
not I am coming.  Parousia can never be translated as coming or second coming.
