Yes. I think the Tribulation started when the Pope was selected 3-13-13.
In the Bible, thirteen is symbolic of rebellion and lawlessness.
Wed. 3-13-2013 + 1260 days = Mid-Trib, Wed. Aug. 24, 2016, my mother’s birthday. I pay attention to that because our son David was born on April 6, crucifixion day. I dug post holes and built a fence around our front yard a week before, trying to make him be born on my husband's birthday, but the Lord had other plans.
I expect the Rapture on Pentecost, June 12, 2016, because fig trees put out their leaves in June, when “summer is nigh”.
I'll be glad to share some verses with you that are very meaningful to me. Let me know if there are some important ones I have missed.
In Mat 24:31-33, Jesus said, “And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. 32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer (i.e., June 21) is nigh: 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it (i.e., the Rapture) is near, even at the doors” (i.e., there are two Raptures to come, one on Pentecost, the other on Tabernacles).
Deu 16:16 says, "Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread (i.e., the OT saints were taken to the heavenly New Jerusalem on Firstfruits, the 2nd day of Unleavened Bread on April 9, 30 AD), and in the feast of weeks (i.e., Pentecost), and in the feast of tabernacles".
Mat 25:10 says, "And while they (i.e., the foolish virgins) went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready (i.e., the wise-virgins) went in with him to the marriage: and the DOOR was shut."
A TYPE OF TWO RAPTURES
Num 10:1-4 says, "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 2 Make thee two trumpets of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them: that thou mayest use them for the calling of the ASSEMBLY, and for the journeying of the camps. 3 And when they shall blow with them, all the assembly shall assemble themselves to thee at the DOOR of the tabernacle of the congregation. 4 And if they blow but with one trumpet, then the princes (i.e., elders), which are heads of the thousands of Israel, shall gather themselves unto thee."
THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY IN THE HEAVENLY JERUSALEM
Heb 12:22-26 says, "But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, THE HEAVENLY JERUSALEM, and to an innumerable company of angels, 23 To the GENERAL ASSEMBLY and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. 25 See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: 26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
REVELATION 13 SOUNDS LIKE THE FIRST RAPTURE WILL TAKE PLACE JUST BEFORE THE FALSE PROPHET COMES TO POWER MID-TRIB
Rev 13:5-11 says, “And there was given unto him (i.e., ANTICHRIST, the first beast) a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months (i.e., the first half of the Tribulation). 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and THEM THAT DWELL IN HEAVEN (i.e., the First-Trump Rapture of the wise virgins just took place). 7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints (i.e., the foolish virgins left behind at the first Rapture), and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 9 If any man have an ear, let him hear. 10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. 11 And I beheld another beast (i.e., the FALSE PROPHET) coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.”
REVELATION 12 AND DANIEL 12 AGREE ON A MID-TRIB RAPTURE WHEN MICHAEL STANDS UP
Rev 12:6-12 says, “And the woman (i.e., Israel) fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place (i.e., Petra) prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days (i.e., during the Great Tribulation). 7 And there was war in heaven: MICHAEL and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation (soteria, rescue, deliverance, i.e., the Rapture), and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 12 THEREFORE REJOICE, HE HEAVENS, AND YE THAT DWELL IN THEM. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time (i.e., the shortened Great Tribulation).”
Dan 12:1,2 says, “And at that time (i.e., Mid-Trib) shall MICHAEL stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered (malat, escape, leap out, i.e., be raptured), every one that shall be found written in the book. 2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.”
Deu 4:30,31 says, "When thou art IN TRIBULATION, and all these things are come upon thee, EVEN IN THE LATTER DAYS, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; 31 (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them."
Act_14:22 says, "WE MUST THROUGH MUCH TRIBULATION ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD."
Rev_1:9-11 says, "I John, who also am your brother, and companion IN TRIBULATION, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos (i.e., meaning mortal), for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10 I was (lit., became) in the Spirit on the Lord's day (Sunday), and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega".

Subject: 5doves letter
I saw just saw your post on 5doves about 3 raptures. I've felt that we're already in the first half of the tribulation for some time now, is that what you're thinking also? I believe that's what I read in your letter.
In His love,
