"THE TRIBULATION IS
'SHORTENED FOR ONLY THE ELECT BY THE RAPTURE', THE
NON-BELIEVERS CONTINUE INTO THE REST OF THE TRIBULATION ON
"For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been
since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever
shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would
be saved; but FOR THE ELECT'S (THE CHURCH'S) SAKE THOSE DAYS
WILL BE SHORTENED."
The 'number of days' that the Church (the elect) is on earth
after the tribulation begins are shortened for the elect's sake
when the rapture occurs. So, how many days will the elect suffer
tribulation before being raptured?
"Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you,
the devil will put some of you in prison to test you and YOU
WILL SUFFER TRIBULATION FOR TEN DAYS. Be faithful even to the
point of death, AND I WILL GIVE YOU THE CROWN OF LIFE."
We are given the 'crown of life' at the rapture on the eleventh
day after we suffer ten days of tribulation.
"These are they who HAVE COME OUT OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION; they
have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the
Come Lord Jesus!
