"RE:  WILL THERE BE NO GENTILE TRIBULATION SAINTS?"

 
Hello, John and Doves,
 
It should be noted that those who are saved during a particular dispensation are part and parcel of that dispensation.  As such, even though many gentiles will be saved during the time that the Bride of Christ is absent from the Earth, those gentiles saved during the "time of Jacob's trouble" will, in fact, be considered part of Israel.
 
And yet, there is no big distinction between the saved of Israel, and the saved of any age:
    "For 1063 the promise 1860 is 2076 unto you 5213, and 2532 to your 5216 children 5043, and 2532 to all 3956 that are afar off 1519 3112, [even] as many as 3745 the Lord 2962 our 2257 God 2316 shall call 302 4341."  Acts 2:39
 
This promise of a Savior was first given to Adam.  Jesus is the only one to save anyone at any time.
    "For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ."  1 Corinthians 3:11
 
Therefore, it is written,
    ""And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock [and] one shepherd."  John 10:16
 
    "...where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond [nor] free: but Christ [is] all, and in all."  Colossians 3:11
 
To conclude, then, in the final analysis, no one who is saved is differentiated from any other saved person--thus, saved Gentiles are no longer Gentiles, but Christ's.
 
Thus, brother Bruce, your contention that all gentile unbelievers during the time of Jacob's trouble must be condemned doesn't wash.  God is no respecter of persons.  The fact that someone is a son or daughter in the flesh of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob does not at any time recommend them to God.
 
It has always been that "whosoever" may be saved.  Period.  End of story.
 
In HaShem,
Mike C.

"ACCORDING TO SCRIPTURE, THERE WILL BE 'NO GENTILE' TRIBULATION SAINTS..."

Dear Doves,

GOD HAS BLINDED ISRAEL "UNTIL THE FULLNESS OF THE GENTILES HAS COME IN" ON THE "VERY DAY" OF THE RAPTURE:

Romans 11:7
"Israel has not obtained what it seeks; but the elect have obtained it, and THE REST WERE BLINDED. Just as it is written: God has given them A SPIRIT OF STUPOR, eyes that they should NOT see and ears that they should NOT hear, TO THIS VERY DAY."

Romans 11:25
"...BLINDNESS in part has happened to Israel UNTIL THE FULLNESS OF THE GENTILES HAS COME IN."

AFTER THE RAPTURE, GOD SENDS THE LEFT-BEHIND, UNBELIEVING GENTILES A "STRONG DELUSION THAT THEY SHOULD BELIEVE THE LIE":

2 Thessalonians 2:10-12
"And with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did NOT RECEIVE the love of the truth, that they might be saved (raptured). And for this reason GOD WILL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION, THAT THEY SHOULD BELIEVE THE LIE, that they ALL MAY BE CONDEMNED WHO DID NOT BELIEVE THE TRUTH but had pleasure in unrighteousness."


These Scriptures tell us that BEFORE THE RAPTURE God has blinded the Jews, but AFTER THE RAPTURE their blindness will end as God turns His attention to saving them during the tribulation so that they become the 'tribulation saints'.

These Scriptures also tell us that AFTER the rapture Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond [nor] free: but Christ [is] all, and in all." at the time of the rapture. Having received a "strong delusion" from God the left-behind Gentiles will "ALL BE CONDEMNED" and will NOT become the 'tribulation saints'.

Therefore, those who are saved AFTER THE RAPTURE DURING THE TRIBULATION WILL BECOME 'TRIBULATION SAINTS'. They are NOT GENTILES,  but rather THEY ARE JEWS.


According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus!
