Dear Doves,

Revelation 2:10
"Do not fear any of those things which YOU ARE ABOUT TO SUFFER, indeed, the devil is about to throw SOME OF YOU into prison, that you may be tested, and YOU WILL HAVE TRIBULATION TEN DAYS. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life."

This Scripture states that 'SOME CHRISTIANS WILL HAVE TRIBULATION TEN DAYS' while still right here on earth. This means that NOT ALL CHRISTIANS are raptured 'pre-tribulation'. Maybe this means that NOT ANY Christians are raptured prior to the '70th Week of Daniel'. This Scripture may be speaking to 'some Christians' that are caught in Judea or Jerusalem when the 'great tribulation' of Israel begins. The vast majority of 'His Church' will not be affected by the localized 'great tribulation of Israel'.

Luke 21:21-22
"Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those in the city (Jerusalem) get out, and let those in the country not enter the city (Jerusalem). For this is the TIME OF TRIBULATION in fulfillment of all that has been written."

According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus!
