Does God keep us?

Rev 3:10 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.

Many people say this verse says we will be gone, but lets look at it.

first lets look at the word keep in our Strong’s Concordance.

Greek 5083 τηρέω tēreō tay-reh’-o

From τηρός teros (a watch; perhaps akin to G2334); to guard (from loss or injury, properly by keeping the eye upon; and thus differing from G5442, which is properly to prevent escaping; and from G2892, which implies a fortress or full military lines of apparatus), that is, to note (a prophecy; figuratively to fulfill a command); by implication to detain (in custody; figuratively to maintain); by extension to withhold (for personal ends; figuratively to keep unmarried): – hold fast, keep (-er), (ob-, pre-, re) serve, watch.

It’s a guard not an escape. Look at what Christ tells us here:

Luke 21:18 But there shall not an hair of your head perish.

Read that whole Chapter in Luke. God is guarding you and they are not allowed to touch you. Remember Satan’s power is given by God. Without God Satan has no power.
