Dear Doves,

Scripture uses specific 'words and phrases' to show us 'the order' in which Biblical 'events occur' with respect to one another. Some of these are: "at that time", "then", "after", and "before". Notice how these words give the 'order of occurrance' of events as they unfold in the following Scriptures:

Daniel 12:1
"There will be a time of tribulation such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until 'THEN'. But 'AT THAT TIME' your people - everyone whose name is found written in the book - will be delivered. Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life..."

Matthew 24:21
"For 'THEN' there will be great tribulation, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now - and never to be equaled again."

Matthew 24:29
"Immediately 'AFTER' the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light..."

Acts 2:20
"The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood 'BEFORE' the coming of the great and glorious Day of the Lord."

Matthew 24:30
"AT THAT TIME' the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky...."

According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus!
