SUDDEN DESTRUCTION" IN ISRAEL HAPPENS WHEN JESUS OPENS THE SECOND SEAL WHICH BEGINS THE 'GREAT TRIBULATION WAR' IN ISRAEL....
1 Thessalonians 5:3
"For when they say, Peace and safety ! then sudden destruction comes upon them.......and they shall not escape."
"But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its destruction is near."
The armies surrounding Jerusalem are the armies of Gog-Magog which bring the 'great tribulation war' to Israel as the prophecy of Ezekiel 38-14 tells us:
"Therefore, Son of Man, prophesy and say to Gog, On that day when My people of Israel dwell safely......then you will come out of your place in the far north.......You will come up against My people of Israel like a cloud.....It will be in the latter days that I will bring you against My land."
"These are the days of vengeance that all things which are written may be fulfilled.....For there will be great tribulation in the land and wrath upon this people."
The 'great tribulation' is confined to Israel only because it is His vengeance against the land and the people of Israel. The world-wide Christian Church will witness the 'great tribulation' events, as the occur in Israel, without being directly affected by it. Jesus will shorten and end the great tribulation of Israel to save the flesh of the Hebrew remnant. Then immediately after the 'great tribulation', of those days in Israel, Jesus will save/the souls and rapture His Church before the wrath of God is poured out upon the whole world at the opening of the Seventh Seal because the Church is not appointed to suffer the wrath of God.
When Jesus opens the Second Seal He begins the Gog-Magog War which is the 'great tribulation' confined to Israel only. The third and fourth seals are a consequence of the Gog-Magog War in Israel. He then shortens and ends the 'great tribulation war' of Israel in time to save the flesh of the Hebrew remnant. Immediately after the 'great tribulation' of Israel is ended Jesus saves the souls and raptures His Church to heaven before He opens the Seventh Seal and pours out the wrath of God upon the whole world after the half an hour of silence.
Therefore the rapture is both post-trib to the great tribulation of Israel, and also pre-wrath.
Come lord Jesus!
