"THE 'GOG-MAGOG WAR' is LUKE 21:20-31 and 'THE SIXTH SEAL' and 'THE RAPTURE'..........."

Dear Doves,
The anti-Christ sets-up the abomination of desolation in Jerusalem in conjunction with the Gog-Magog War beginning in Israel, and these are the two events that begin the great tribulation in Israel and break the 'covenant with many' in the middle of the last seven years   1,290 days before the Second Coming of the Lord.
Daniel 11:31 (The anti-Christ and the army of Gog-Magog)
"His armed forces will rise up to desecrate the temple fortress and will abolish the daily sacrifice. Then they will set up the abomination that causes desolation." (1,290 days)
Ezekiel 38:16- and 39:8 (The Gog-Magog War)
"It will be in the latter days that I will bring you against My land (1,290 days), so that the nations may know me, when I am hallowed in you, O Gog, before their eyes ....... For in My jealousy and IN THE FIRE OF MY WRATH I have spoken: Surely, IN THAT DAY (the Day of the Lord) THERE SHALL BE A GREAT EARTHQUAKE IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL. .....All men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at  My presence. The mountains shall be thrown down.......Surely it is coming, and it shall be done, says the Lord God, THIS IS THE DAY  (the Day of the Lord) OF WHICH I HAVE SPOKEN.
The "great earthquake" in Israel that moves mountains on the Day of the Lord connects the preceeding and the following Scripture.
Revelation 6:12 (The Sixth Seal)
"I looked when he opened the Sixth Seal, and behold, THERE WAS A GREAT EARTHQUAKE..........and every mountain and island was moved out of its place......and the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men......hid themselves in the caves, and in the rocks of the mountains. ....and said to the mountains and rocks, fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and FROM THE WRATH OF THE LAMB! fOR THE GREAT DAY OF HIS WRATH (the Day of the Lord) HAS COME, and who is able to stand?
 Luke 21:20- (The Gog-Magog War)
"But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies (Gog-Magog), then know that its desolation is near.........For these ARE THE DAYS OF (God's) VENGEANCE, THAT ALL THINGS WHICH ARE WRITTEN MAY BE FULFILLED. FOR THERE WILL BE GREAT DISTRESS (tribulation) IN THE LAND (of Israel) AND (God's) WRATH UPON THIS PEOPLE (of Israel). .....and Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles (Gog-Magog) until the times of the Gentiles are's hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things (the great earthquake) which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
Luke 21:28-31 (watch always)
"Now, when these things (Gog-Magog War) begin to happen (in Israel), look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near........ So also, when you see these things happening (the Gog-Magog War in Israel), know that the Kingdom of God is Near."
When we see Jerusalem surrounded by the armies of Gog-Magog we will know that its desolation is near, and it will be trampled (beginning 1,290 days) by the Gentile armies of Gog-Magog  until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled. This is the  (30 days) time of the great tribulation of God's vengeance and wrath upon Israel. We will "see these things happening" to Israel on the Day of the Lord when suddenly a great earthquake occurs in Israel, but is felt all around the world 1,260 days before the Second Coming of the lord,  AND THEN THE RAPTURE OF HIS CHURCH/BRIDE HAPPENS on that Day according to the events of the Sixth Seal.
God is going to use the anti-Christ and the Gog Magog War to tribulate Israel for the first 30-days of the great tribulation, from day 1,290 to day 1,260, at which point He will shorten it and cut it short FOR THE ELECT CHURCH ONLY by the rapture. Also at the 1,260 day point He will cast Satan down to earth so that Satan can give the anti-Christ his power and authority to continue the world-wide wrath of God great tribulation for forty-two months/1,260 days more until the Second Coming of the Lord.
Matthew 24:29
"Immediately AFTER the (shortened) tribulation of those (30) days (in Israel)".........the rapture happens to cut it short for ONLY the elect Church. It continues for the left-behind.
Mark 13:24
'But in those (30) days, AFTER that (shortened) tribulation (in Israel)"..........the rapture happens to cut it short for ONLY the elect Church. It continues for the left-behind.
The Church IS NOT going to be tribulated! It will be raptured "ON THAT DAY" immediately AFTER those 30  days of tribulation in Israel, and immediately BEFORE the 1,260 day worldwide 'wrath of God' great tribulation continues.
Revelation 13:5 (the anti-Christ gets the power of Satan)
"..and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months (1,260 days)."
According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus!
