"TWO RAPTURES & ONE TRIBULATION or TWO TRIBULATIONS & ONE RAPTURE ?"

Dear Doves,

I know that some of us believe that there are two raptures and one tribulation. I believe that the Scriptures give more evidence for two tribulations. The first is a 'shortened tribulation' for Israel only ie. Jacob's trouble, followed by a second, 3 and 1/2 year, world-wide tribulation caused by the wrath of God upon the whole world.
I believe that the rapture of The Church occurs on 'the day' between these two tribulations.

Come Lord Jesus!
