Dear Doves,

Revelation 7:14
"These are they who have come out of the (shortened) great
tribulation, they have washed their robes and made them white in the
blood of the Lamb."

Matthew 24:21-22
 "For then there will be great tribulation....... If those days had
not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the
elect (the Church) those days will be shortened (for the elect)."

The days of the great tribulation are 'cut short or shortened' at the
time of the rapture, for ONLY the elect who is the Church  The days
are NOT cut short or shortened for the non-believers who are the
left-behind and will continue to experience the rest of the great
tribulation. The Church 'comes out', at the time of the rapture, early
in the ongoing great tribulation which continues on to the end of its
appointed 1,290 days.

Come Lord Jesus!
