"SO SHALL WE EVER BE WITH THE LORD"...........
The following Scripture tells us that AFTER THE RESURRECTION/RAPTURE of His Body of Christ Church that we, the Church, will forever be in the Lord's presence, and He will be forever in the Church's presence according to :
1 Thessalonians 4:17
" Then we, which are alive and remain, shall be caught up together with them ( the resurrected dead in Christ ) in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and SO SHALL WE EVER BE WITH THE LORD."
Therefore, the "GREAT MULTITUDE" spoken of in Revelation 7:9-15 can BE NONE OTHER than HIS PREVIOUSLY RESURRECTED/RAPTURED BODY OF CHRIST CHURCH, now dwelling with the Lord in heaven according to :
"Therefore they ( the previously resurrected/raptured Church) are before the Throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple; and He that sits on the throne SHALL DWELL AMONG THEM."
NOW CONSIDER THIS:
The events spoken of in the seven seals are ALL in chronological order in the sequence of when they will occur. The Word of God even has them numbered for us so that no one can be confused about the order in which they will occur. The LAST EVENT OF SEAL SIX describes the "Great Multitude" in heaven which is the resurrected/raptured Body of Christ Church. This occurs IMMEDIATELY BEFORE Jesus opens the seventh seal which then BEGINS the Great Tribulation judgments upon the whole world. We know from the Scriptures , that His Church is not appointed to the wrath of God during the Great Tribulation making the resurrection/rapture a pre-tribulation event. Also, THE RESURRECTION /RAPTURE OF HIS CHURCH IS A PRE-SEVENTH SEAL EVENT.
SO, THERE YOU HAVE IT :
AFTER the resurrection /rapture of His Body of Christ Church , His Church is never out of the presence of the Lord nor is He ever out of the presence of His Church. Therefore, the Scriptures from Revelation 7:9 through Revelation 7:17 are ALL speaking of the resurrected/raptured Body of Christ Church as the "Great Multitude" now dwelling in heaven with the Lord. Therefore, the LAST EVENT of Seal #6 describes the resurrected/raptured Church as the "Great Multitude" dwelling in heaven with the Lord just BEFORE Jesus opens Seal #7 which then BEGINS the Great Tribulation judgments upon the whole world.
According to Your Holy Word, come Lord Jesus !
