We are not in the Tribulation.
The Seventy weeks are all under the LAW!
The cutting off of Messiah marked a separation of the Seventieth week from the sixty-nine but not from the LAW.
The Full seventy weeks are determined upon thy people (Jewish) and
, ( Holy City ) Jerusalem
24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. (Holy of Holies)
The Seventith Week will be under the Law.
The Law giver Moses, and the Prophet Elijah, will return.
4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all
, with the statutes and judgments. Israel
5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
This will be fulfilled on a future tabernacles:
3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.
4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.
Peter was correct not knowing what he said, for the Lord tabernacled them in the cloud.
NT:1982 episkiazo (ep-ee-skee-ad'-zo); from NT:1909 and a derivative of NT:4639; to cast a shade upon, i.e. (by analogy) to envelope in a haze of brilliancy; figuratively, to invest with preternatural influence:
Those slaughterd under the Law will have to wait till end of Tribulation. By analogy they are under the Altar as under the Law.
9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
Notice the Law Talking.
38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye , and a tooth for a tooth:
9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity : he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
Disobedience of the Law brings on the curse. When the curse or great tribulation comes, the Law is in effect.
26 Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse;
27 A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you this day:
28 And a curse , if ye will not obey the commandments of the LORD your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known.
6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse .
The Law shall continue into the Millinium:
4:1 But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.
2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
3 And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
The Church will be raptured before the Law is in effect again!
