Ends at the 6th seal
Mth. 24:9 Tribulation & Martyrs

24:15 When you see the Abomination of desolation by the antichrist in the Holy Of Holies
Mth. 24: 21 "Then
shall the Great Tribulation begin …"
"Tribulation to Rapture to Wrath"JESUS’ “PAROUSIA” / “COMING *
Ref. Isa.24 & 34
Rev. 6:9-11: Fifth seal: Christians
slain / martyred - the “elect” / “chosen” of Jesus.
Man's wrath on man accelerated - initiated by the antichrist upon the abomination of desolation in the
temple. Rev. 13:7
Christians will still be present and called to endure temptation to deny Christ or be martyred.
The term “tribulation” (Peirosmos) is defined as a time of trials
/ testing / temptation by trial of the elect to deny Christ.. Translated from the Greek word “Peirosmos”
as used in Rev. 3:10; “I will keep you from
the hour of temptation”).
term “tribulation” is a time of testing by trial of the elect, by God's
permissive of will; allowing satan to act upon the people. See 2 Peter 2:9
“Wrath” (Ebrah) is defined as God’s “overflowing fury of God”; i.e.
judgment upon the unrepentant. "… for
God has not destined us for wrath…"
1 Thess. 5:9
Wrath translated from Hebrew word “Ebrah”; Strong’s #5678 connotes the “overflowing
fury of God” and is only used in conjunction with "Day of the Lord" wrath following the 7th Seal.
The primary difference is
that Pre Tribulation rapture sees NO difference between the terms: “tribulation” and “wrath”.
Therefore, the entire 7-year period must
be “God’s wrath” contrary to Scripture. Unfortunately, this results in
an incorrect definition of terms as synonymous, followed by hermeneutical faulty assumptions.
Both Pre-Tribulation Rapture, and Pre Wrath Rapture agree that the 7th
seal contains God’s wrath.
The primary difference, is the explicit question: Is the period from the 1st seal
to the 6th seal also God’s wrath, or tribulation?
7-year period is broken down to:
“The beginning of Sorrows”, the “Great Tribulation”, "Jesus’
return to gather the elect", and the “Day of the Lord” (God's wrath).
Jesus described in Mth. 24:5-31 and reflected in Rev. 6 &7 and God's wrath in Rev. 8 - 16.
II Thes. 2:3-12
Man of Sin revealed:
of desolation at 3.5 years of the 7 years; Initiating the "Great Tribulation".
Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus
Christ, and by our gathering together unto him …
Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,
who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God ….
then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord
will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming “Parousia”… whose coming is after the working of satan …”
also Daniel 9:24-27, & Dan.12:11-12
Refer.: Isa.24 & 34
God’s “wrath” would not include
“tribulation” of the antichrist, false religions, martyrs; as Pretrib Rapture states.
END OF THE "GREAT TRIBULATION"
& SIGNS ANNOUNCING THE “DAY OF THE LORD” HAS COME
24 REVELATION 6 & 7
Ends some time after 3.5 years, but before the end of the full 7 years.
Mth. 24: 22 … except it (the Great Tribulation) be shortened
no flesh be saved, but for the elect’s sake, those days shall be shortened"
Mth. 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days, shall
the sun be darkened and the moon give no light, and the stars fall from heaven
24:30-31 Then shall the Son of man come
… with a great sound of a Trumpet of God …. &
Gather The Elect !
JESUS’ “PAROUSIA” / “COMING” *
THE LAST TRUMPET
DAY OF THE LORD & HIS WRATH
Rev. 6:12-17: Sixth seal - Cosmic disturbances; Earthquakes, sun black, the moon
blood, stars fall to earth, heaven departs like a scroll … For the great day of His wrath is come: and who shall be able to stand?
“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
See, darkness covers the earth, and thick darkness is over the peoples; but the Lord rises upon you and His glory appears
over you.” Is. 60:1-2
Rev. 7:3-4 The faithful 144,000 of Israel
protected by a seal of protection, from the wrath about to be unleashed. See also Rev. 9:4 (those sealed are
"… Who delivers us from the wrath
1 Thessalonians 1:10
"… for God has
not destined us for wrath…"
1 Thessalonians 5:9
(During 7th seal; Rev. 8 through 16 yet to come)
Rev. 7:9,13-14 "These are they (in white robes) which came out of the Great Tribulation"
(Who were on earth – now in heaven - raptured)
"For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel,
and with the shofar (trumpet of God);
and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the
clouds to meet the Lord in the air; thus we shall always be with the Lord.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
See Zech.9:14-16; God blows trumpet – only 2x - with Moses when he was given the Law, Ex.19:13-19 and
here to reward & judge according to the law! See also Jesus' return
on Mount of Olives: Zech. 14:4-5 & Acts 1:9-11
See Jesus' “Parousia” Coming
& staying presence: Rev. 5:1,5,9, Rev.19:13,15,16
Note: Noah and
his family were told to get into ark 7 days before the doors closed (Gen. 7:10 & Mth. 24:37). It is interesting
to consider that 7 years from the start of the 10 years “Days of Awe” could align with the approximate
7 years of opportunity to repent, before the doors are shut and the “wrath” of God is pronounced upon
the wicked during the 7th Seal
End of the Great Tribulation sign:
6th seal signals
the end of the “Great Tribulation” as
prophesied to come …
"before" the "Day of the Lord" & His wrath:
Joel 2:1, 10, 31, & 3: 14-15 Acts 2:20 - Acts 2:17-21,
Isa. 13:6, 9-10 24:21-23
2 Peter 3:10-12 Zec. 14:1-6
The 144,000 (of Israel)
are protected from the wrath of God to come during the "Day of the Lord” & His wrath. See:
Rev. 7:3-4, 9:4, 18:4, Ezk. 39:29, Isa. 26:20-21, John 19:37
See “Parousia” of Christ coming & staying at end.
JESUS’ “PAROUSIA” / “COMING” *

are Christ's "chosen"; Gentile or Israel believers in the Messiah,
Who returns to gather His “elect” before the "Day of the Lord" & His wrath during the 7th seal.

by 1 third.
Rev. 9:1-12 Fifth Trumpet of wrath: A Star falls to earth to open bottomless pit, sun & air darkened, locusts

of Israel protected by a seal of protection, from the wrath about to be unleashed. See also Rev. 9:4 (not hurt
Sixth Trumpet of wrath: God turns loose 4 angels
to slay 1 third of men by 2 Million horsemen by fire, smoke & brimstone.
Note significance between “Tribulation”; that God allows
for repentance, and “God’s Wrath” as judgment.

Rev. 20 MILLENNIAL KINGDOM & GREAT WHITE
Rev. 20 Satan bound 1,000 years. Martyrs resurrected
to reign with Jesus 1,000 years (1st resurrection). After 1000 years Gog & Magog battle, fire
from heaven destroys them as they attack Jerusalem. Devil cast into lake of fire with false prophet & beast. 2nd resurrection,
Great White Throne Judgment; Book of Life opened & judged by works. Those not in Book of Life cast into lake of fire.
DAY = 1 YEAR OR 1,000 YEARS:
“I have appointed
you each day for a year”. Ezek.4:6
“… one day WITH
the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years
as one day. 2 Peter 3:8
Just as 6 days of the week were meant
for man and the 7th day (Sabbath) was meant for honoring God, so also the 6 Feasts are related to man’s redemption and the 7th Feast of Tabernacles is related
to an eternity with God.
The logic continues when
1 day is prophetically speaking of 1 year (i.e. Ezek. 4:6) when referring to man’s redemption; or when 1 day is prophetically
speaking of 1,000 years (i.e. 2 Peter 3:8 & 13) when referring to God as with Jubilee
/ Millennial Kingdom.
Also note the year of Jubilee starts on the 11th day of the 7th month (the day
following the Feast of Atonement on the 10th day). The Feast of Tabernacles is not until the
Therefore, it could likely be another 4,000 years after the Millennial Kingdom
to the Feast of Tabernacles. This is likely according to Rev. 20 where it states that satan will be released
after 1,000 years of Millennial Kingdom, then a Gog / Magog battle will occur, then the "Great White
Throne Judgment", and completed finally with the Feast of Tabernacles "New Heavens & New Earth".
Satan bound 1000 years
