"A Preview of what has started to happen"

Hi Doves,

What we’ve seen happen in the Middle East and also now at a city & country at supposedly the pinnacle of human development and culture, London & England is but an example of every day life after the Rapture. Shocking, but as real as the experience of everyday life for all left behind after the Rapture and during the tribulation.

Some say we will remain until the middle of the tribulation before being taken, called up but I don’t think so. Some say that the first 3 ½ years of the tribulation do not constitute the wrath of GOD – they should re-read Revelation 6 carefully.

Rev 6:15-16
Then the kings of the earth, the nobles, the military commanders, the rich, the powerful, and every slave and free person hid in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains.  And they said to the mountains and to the rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of the One seated on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb,

(bold script, mine)

Note:This is before the anti-christ defiles the temple!

Refusing to call on the Rock of Ages, men have no other choice but to cry to the rocks of the earth.

There are those who say the wrath of the Lamb, the real Tribulation, does not happen until midway into this seven-year period. They believe the church is raptured immediately before Antichrist enters the temple, demanding to be worshiped as God. Adherents to this view, called the Mid-Tribulation or Pre-Wrath Rapture, would do well to read Revelation 6 more carefully, because verse Rev_6:16 makes it clear that the wrath of the Lamb occurs at the beginning of the Tribulation, not halfway through.

"Pray you may be found worthy to escape all of these things," Jesus taught in His Olivet Discourse—not "that you may be found worthy to escape halfway through" (see Luk_21:36).

How is one found worthy? - Simply by being in Christ (Jud_1:24,25). Now to Him who is able to protect you from stumbling and to make you stand in the presence of His glory, blameless and with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, power, and authority before all time, now, and forever. Amen.


Making the book of Revelation conform to the ways of men can cause gross distortions, saying that it is not chronological etc. To my thinking this is wrong – it is divinely presented in this order, and so it should be read and interpreted.
