""YOU WILL SUFFER TRIBULATION TEN DAYS"......"

Dear Doves,

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:

Revelation 7:13-14
(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 SETTLE YOU."

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!
