JESUS SAYS JERUSALEM WILL BE DESTROYED 'AGAIN BEFORE 'THE RAPTURE
Jesus states, in His Olivet Discourse, that Jerusalem will be destroyed AGAIN BEFORE the rapture as recorded in:
"When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies (Gog-Magog armies), then know that ITS DESOLATION IS NEAR. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains."
"When you see the abomination of DESOLATION (Gog-Magog armies)....stand in the holy place (Jerusalem) then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains."
"For there will be great distress (tribulation) in the land , and wrath upon this people....and Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles (Gog-Magog armies) until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled."
"For there will be great tribulation (distress)..."
"When these things BEGIN to happen, look up and lift up your heads, YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWS NEAR !" (THAT IS OUR SIGN)
So you see, Jerusalem will be destroyed AGAIN by the 'abomination of desolation', who are the Gog-Magog armies, during the great tribulation of Jerusalem just BEFORE the rapture which is the reason for the following Scripture :
"IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION OF THOSE DAYS .....He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet and they will gather together His elect..."
The 42 month, or 1,260 day period ,after the rapture is NOT THE TRIBULATION, but rather it is Satan's "hour of temptation" according to Revelation 3:10 and Revelation 13:5.
