"YOU MUST UNDERSTAND and UNTIL YOU DO........"

Dear Doves,
 
You must understand that all three Scriptures: Matthew 24:15-31  and  Mark 13:14-27  and  Luke 21:20-31  are all three describing the very same 'end-time SEQUENCE of events' from the  THE BEGINNING of the great tribulation and ending with the rapture of the Church. All three Scriptures begin with the words "When you see...", and then describe THE BEGINNING of the great tribulation BEFORE describing the rapture of the Church. The 'Parable of the Fig Tree' follows each of these three Scriptures leaving no doubt as to what is being described there.
 
If the rapture were really appointed to occur BEFORE the beginning of the great tribulation, don't you think that it would be described in the Scriptures  BEFORE the beginning of the great tribulation is described?
 
1 Corinthians 14:33
"For GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION ......."
 
The 'traditions of men' are the authors of confusion!
 
According to Your Word, not the words of men,  come Lord Jesus!
