Dear Doves,

One group will be the foolish, lukewarm, Laodicean Christians who are to be 'tested on earth' by God AFTER the rapture. If they 'pass the test' by being 'martyred' they also will gain Heaven.

A second group will be the 'unbelieving Gentiles' who will receive a "strong delusion" from God AFTER the rapture:

2 Thessalonians 2:9-11
"...among those who perish because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason GOD WILL SEND THEM A STRONG DELUSION, that they should believe the lie, that they ALL MAY BE CONDEMNED who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness."

The third group are the 'unbelieving Hebrew people' who God then turns His attention to 'saving' AFTER the rapture:

Romans 11:25
"...that blindness in part has happened to Israel UNTIL THE FULLNESS OF THE GENTILES HAS COME IN. And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: The Deliverer will come out of Zion, and he will turn away ungodliness from Jacob: for this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins."

According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus!
