"NOTICE THE 'CHRONOLOGICAL PLACEMENT' OF THE DESCRIPTION OF THE 'GREAT MULTITUDE IN HEAVEN' ...."

Dear Doves,

The 'chronological order' of the opening of the Seven Seals is interrupted ONLY between the 'Sixth Seal' and the 'Seventh Seal' to place the description of the 'sealing of the 144,000' as well as the description of the 'Great Multitude in Heaven' BEFORE the 'Seventh Seal' is opened. I believe that  tells us the 'sealing of the 144,000' and the 'rapture of the Church' is before the opening of the Seventh Seal, which is the seal of God's wrath.

Therefore, the 'rapture of the Church' and the 'sealing of the 144,000' must occur AFTER the opening of the Sixth Seal. Notice also that it is NOT Jesus who is 'sealing the 144,000', but rather His angels. While His angels are 'sealing the 144,000', Jesus is 'rapturing His Church' to Heaven BEFORE He opens the Seventh Seal in Heaven.

According to Your Word, Come Lord Jesus!
