"To: Rene"

The Great Tribulation --- it ain't here yet!
       I have to differ with you.  The Great Tribulation happened 2,000 years ago.  It was a greater
holocaust than after WWII.  They rejected their Messiah and He rejected them.  They didnít
believe because He didnít come at the time they expected Him.  But a remnant [disciples] did
believe and took the message to the world. 
Rev. 5:10 ďAnd has made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.Ē
       And they have.
1 Cor. 3:16 ďKnow ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?Ē
      Happened at Pentecost almost 2,000 years ago.
     Only the Jew could take their God to the world so the message came to the Jew first and then
to the Gentiles.  That first century was terrible on them.  Many were slaughtered, the temple
was burned, homes burned and finally the Jews were banished from Jerusalem.  They didnít
have a temple:  On that site the Temple of Jupiter was built. 
    They are now back in the land as a state as prophesied but are not descendants of Abraham. 
They have the Jewish faith, though, and believe themselves to be Abrahamís seed.  Thatís not
good enough: They must receive Jesus as Lord.
Blessings to you, jfh
