""YOU WILL SUFFER TRIBULATION TEN DAYS"......"
Revelation 2:10 (LETTER TO THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH IN SMYRNA)
"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 SPEAKS VOLUMNS:
We know from Scripture that at the time of the rapture every, single,
last, born-again Christian will be going, even if they are in prison,
execpt for maybe the lukewarm Laodiceans. Prison bars and walls will
not be able to hold born-again Christians in when the rapture occurs.
ALL born-again Christians will go in the rapture AT THE SAME TIME -
WHILE IN PRISON OR NOT!
Therefore, SOME OF US CHRISTIANS "WILL HAVE TRIBULATION TEN DAYS" WHILE
THEY ARE IN PRISON, and then RECEIVE "THE CROWN OF LIFE" AT THE TIME OF
THE RAPTURE WITH THE REST OF US, WHO ARE NOT IN PRISON, AFTER THE 'TEN
DAYS'. Therefore, this Scripture may tell us that THE RAPTURE WILL
OCCUR - FOR ALL OF US AT THE SAME TIME - ON THE 'TENTH DAY' OF THE
GREAT TRIBULATION WHEN WE ALL RECEIVE "THE CROWN OF LIFE" TOGETHER -
WHILE IN PRISON OR NOT.
THIS EXPLAINS THE FOLLOWING TWO SCRIPTURES:
(13)"These in white robes - who are they and WHERE DID THEY COME FROM?
(14)"These are they WHO HAVE COME OUT OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION; They
have washed their robes and made then white in the blood of the Lamb."
Therefore, are these "THEY WHO HAVE COME OUT OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION" on the 'TENTH DAY' of the great tribulation ?
THE SCRIPTURE BELOW MAY BE GIVING THE ENCOURAGEMENT WE NEED WHILE WE SUFFER THE FIRST 'TEN DAYS' OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION:
1 Peter 5:9-10
(9)"Resist him, steadfast in the faith, KNOWING THAT THE SAME
SUFFERINGS ARE EXPERIENCED BY YOUR BROTHERS IN THE WORLD. But may the
God of all grace, who called us, to His eternal glory by christ Jesus,
AFTER YOU HAVE SUFFERED A WHILE, PERFECT, ESTABLISH, STRENGTHEN, AND
The rapture may happen 'ten days' AFTER the great tribulation begins in
Jerusalem, Israel. The 'great tribulation' is NOT immediately a
world-wide event when it first begins. It first begins in the temple in
Jerusalem, Israel when 'the abomination is set up' 1,290 days (43
months) before the 'Second Coming' of the Lord. Then 30-days later it
spreads world-wide when Satan is cast down to earth 42 months (1,260
days) before the 'Second Coming' of the Lord.
According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus!
