"A 3 YEAR INTERVAL BETWEEN THE RAPTURE AND TRIBULATION???"

 


Please understand.  I am not advocating a position.  I am merely asking questions.

 

1. Is there the possibility of a ten year interval between the rapture and the Second Coming?

 

2. Is there a three year interval between the rapture and the start of the seven year tribulation which would allow for the fulfillment of the destruction of Damascus and the Gog Magog war which is followed by seven years to burn the weapons of war?

 

3. Is this a possible scenario that would explain Moses' words in Psalm 90 vs. 10 which says a generation could stretch out to eighty years?

 

4. Does the passage in Genesis where Abraham's servant is asked to wait ten days before taking the bride home to his master make sense in light of these questions?

 

Psalm 90:10

 

10 Our days may come to seventy years,
or eighty, if our strength endures;
yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow,
for they quickly pass, and we fly away.

 

Revelation 2:10
Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you life as your victor’s crown.

 

Genesis 24:52-55

52 When Abraham’s servant heard what they said, he bowed down to the ground before the LORD. 53 Then the servant brought out gold and silver jewelry and articles of clothing and gave them to Rebekah; he also gave costly gifts to her brother and to her mother. 54 Then he and the men who were with him ate and drank and spent the night there.

When they got up the next morning, he said, “Send me on my way to my master.”

55 But her brother and her mother replied, “Let the young woman remain with us ten days or so; then you may go.”

56 But he said to them, “Do not detain me, now that the LORD has granted success to my journey. Send me on my way so I may go to my master.”
