BLACK SCARS ON MARS

INCOMING EMAIL, RE: THE 'WRATH OF GOD HOUR OF TRIAL' IS MUCH WORSE THAN THE 'GREAT TRIBULATION'

The last-half of the 70th Week of Daniel begins with the opening of the Seventh Seal which causes the 'wrath of God hour of trial' to be poured out upon the whole world. The last time the word "tribulation" is used in the Scriptures is before the Seventh Seal is opened. After the Seventh Seal is opened the word "tribulation" is not found in the rest of the Book of Revelation, but the word "wrath" is used eleven times thereafter to describe the events of the last-half of the 70th Week which is the "hour of trial" upon the whole world. The "hour of trial" upon the whole world begins with the opening of the Seventh Seal which contains the twenty-one judgements upon the whole world. and is the entire last-half of the 70th Week. The "great tribulation" of Israel is ended when the "hour of trial" upon the whole world begins.

The time of "great tribulation" and the time of "God's wrath" are two very different and distinct periods of time which have separate purposes. The "great tribulation" is God's punishment of unrepentant Israel, and the 'wrath of God hour of trial' is God's punishment of the unrepentant whole world. The "great tribulation" is shortened and ends at the end of the first-half of the 70th Week. Then the 'wrath of God hour of trial' begins and is the entire the last-half of the 70th Week.

The rapture of The Church happens upon the opening of the Sixth Seal on the Day of the Lord which separates the "great tribuation" of Israel from the "hour of trial" upon the whole world. The rapture happens "immediately after the tribulation of those days" in Israel. The sign that the "great tribulation" has ended is "the eagles will be gathered together at the carcass".

Matthew 24:27-29
"For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together. Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened and themoon will not give its light..."

Revelation 3:10
"Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world.."

Therefore our Lord appears "immediately after the tribulation" of Israel to rapture His Church/bride in the middle of the 70th Week, and He returns at the end of the "hour of trial" of the whole world at His Second Coming with His Church/bride. It is a perfect plan! According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus!

MY COMMENTS

"But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; THEY SHALL MOUNT UP WITH WINGS AS EAGLES; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." (Isa 40:31)

JESUS' LONG DAY, THE DAY OF GOD'S WRATH

I think the shortened last half of the Tribulation will END with the Wrath of God, not begin with it. I think the Wrath of God is one long day, JESUS' LONG DAY, not the shortened 3.5 years of the last half of the Tribulation.

During the Wrath of God at the very end of the shortened Great Tribulation, two asteroid impacts (Rev 8:8-11; 18:21), a tsunami and a worldwide earthquake that will cause every wall to fall (Eze 38:18f) will punctuate the end. The dead will lay around the Earth. All cities will be in shambles.

Hab 3:10-12 says, "The mountains saw thee, and they trembled: THE OVERFLOWING OF THE WATER passed by: the deep (i.e., the Mediterranean Sea, hit by an asteroid; Rev 8:8) uttered his voice, and lifted up his hands on high. 11 THE SUN AND MOON STOOD STILL in their habitation (CAUSING JESUS' LONG DAY): at the light of thine arrows they went, and at the shining of thy glittering spear. 12 Thou didst march through the land in indignation, thou didst THRESH THE HEATHEN IN ANGER."

Eze_13:13 says, "thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even rend it with a stormy wind IN MY FURY; and there shall be an overflowing shower (i.e., a tsunami) IN MINE ANGER, and great hailstones (i.e., a hail of stones) IN MY FURY to consume it."

Eze_38:22 says, "And I will plead against him (Gog) with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain (i.e., a tsunami), and great hailstones (a hail of stones), fire, and brimstone."

On the Day of God's Wrath, I think Christ will be given his Millennial Kingdom. He will be crowned King of kings and Lord of lords. Then he will be seated as judge at the Judgment Seat of Christ. While the judge is being seated, there will be silence, both on Earth and in Heaven.

Hab_2:20 says, "But the LORD is in his holy temple: let all the earth keep silence before him."

Rev 8:1 says, "And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour."

Rev 11:15-19 says, "And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. 16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, 17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art (i.e., at the end of the Tribulation), and wast (at the First Advent), and art to come (i.e., the Second Advent is 7 months after this); because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. 18 And the nations were angry, and THY WRATH IS COME, and the time of the dead, that they should be JUDGED, and that THOU SHOULDEST GIVE REWARD unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; AND SHOULDEST DESTROY THEM WHICH DESTROY THE EARTH. 19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament (it originally had 2 stone tablets in it, they may stand for the 2 asteroids that will hit Earth): and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail."

Court will convene. What happens next?

Rev 8:2-5 says, "And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. 3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. 4 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand. 5 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake."

The censer represents the asteroid Wormwood that will impact Earth. Rev 8:11 says, "And the name of the star is called Wormwood". This is the rock Satan lives on.

Isa 22:16-19 says, "What hast thou here? (i.e., Babylon) and whom hast thou here (the Satan-possessed False Prophet), that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulchre here, as he (Satan) that heweth him out a sepulchre on high, and that graveth an habitation for himself in a rock? 17 Behold, the LORD will carry thee away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover thee. 18 He will surely violently turn and toss thee like a ball into a large country: there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord's house. 19 And I will drive thee from thy station (matstsab, military post, i.e., as the flaming sword that turned every way in Gen 3:24), and from thy state (maamad, position, office, place, state) shall he pull thee down."

Gen 3:24 says, "So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims (i.e., the four terrestrial planets, of which Earth is one, Eze 1:15), and a flaming sword which turned every way (it rotated and orbited), to keep the way of (or to) the tree of life" (which is in the third heaven, Saturn, II Cor 12:1-4).

Rev_2:7 says, "He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God."

Rev_22:2 says, "In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations".

Rev_22:14 says, "Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city."

Satan used to reside on his planet Rahab, but after he sinned, that planet was split into pieces. Those rocks formed our Asteroid Belt. Satan now lives on one of the asteroids called Wormwood.

Isa 51:9 says, "Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the LORD; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art thou not it that hath cut (lit., SPLIT) RAHAB, AND WOUNDED THE DRAGON?" When the planet Rahab split apart, it looks like a large piece hit Mars. Have you seen the size of that black scar on Mars?

THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE

Just before the wrath of God is poured out, the Last-Trump Rapture will take place. The Tribulation saints will be taken to the third heaven, Saturn.

Rev 15:2 says, "I saw as it were A SEA OF GLASS (hualios, glassy, transparent, i.e., the rings of heaven, Saturn, formed of ice crystals) mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, STAND ON THE SEA OF GLASS, having the harps of God."

> > The "hour of trial" upon the whole world begins with the opening of the Seventh Seal which contains the twenty-one judgements upon the whole world. and is the entire last-half of the 70th Week.

JESUS' LONG DAY, OF WHICH JOSHUA'S LONG DAY WAS A TYPE

To me, it all happens on one long day of disaster instead of "the entire last-half of the 70th Week." It will be a long day, because the Earth will be turned upside down. It will take time to recover its equilibrium.

Isa_24:1 says, "Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and TURNETH IT UPSIDE DOWN, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof."

Rev_16:1 says, "And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth."

Rev_16:19 says, "And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath."

> > The "great tribulation" is shortened and ends at the end of the first-half of the 70th Week. Then the 'wrath of God hour of trial' begins and is the entire the last-half of the 70th Week.

To me, the Great Tribulation is the last 3.5 years. It is to be shortened or no man would be saved. The duration of the Tribulation is 2300 days (Dan 8:12-14). The first half will be 1260 days, so the shortened last half, the Great Tribulation, will be 1040 days. The wrath of God will be on the first day of Jesus' Millennial Kingdom. That is when the Judgment Seat of Christ will convene with Jesus as judge.

> > The rapture of The Church happens upon the opening of the Sixth Seal on the Day of the Lord which separates the "great tribuation" of Israel from the "hour of trial" upon the whole world. The rapture happens "immediately after the tribulation of those days" in Israel. The sign that the "great tribulation" has ended is "the eagles will be gathered together at the carcass".

The Rapture of the Church is next in the order of events. I'm hoping for the upcoming Feast of Trumpets, Monday, Sept 17, 2012. The first Rapture is before Jesus is given the 7-sealed book, before any seal is opened, not after the sixth seal.

Here is the order of events:

1. THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE

Rev 4:1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

2. JESUS GIVEN THE SEVEN-SEALED BOOK

Rev 5:7 says,"And he came and took the book".

3. THE FIRST SEAL IS OPENED

Rev 6:1 says, "And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see."

> > The sign that the "great tribulation" has ended is "the eagles will be gathered together at the carcass".
Matthew 24:27-29
> > "For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together. Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light..."

This is the day the Sign of the Son of Man will be seen in the sky.

Mt 24:26-31 says, "Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he (i.e., the False Prophet) is in the desert (i.e., at Babylon, Iraq); go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. 27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 28 For wheresoever the carcase (ptoma, a ruin, dead body, corpse) is, there will the eagles be gathered together. 29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars (aster, star, meteorite or asteroid) shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 And THEN SHALL APPEAR THE SIGN OF THE SON OF MAN IN HEAVEN: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his ELECT (i.e., the wise-virgin saints) from the four winds, from one end of HEAVEN to the other."

The wise-virgin saints were previously caught up to Heaven in the First-Trump Rapture.

1Th 4:13-18 says, "But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent (Old English for precede) them which are asleep. 16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with THE TRUMP OF GOD (i.e., the first trump): and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words."

Mark 13:26,27 says, "And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. 27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the EARTH (i.e., the foolish virgins and other Tribulation saints caught up to heaven in the Last-Trump Rapture) to the uttermost part of HEAVEN" (the wise-virgin Bride of Christ that was caught up to heaven in the First-Trump Rapture).

Those gathered from the Earth are the Tribulation saints. They will be caught up in the Last-Trump Rapture.

1Co 15:51-54 says, "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the LAST TRUMP: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory."

WHERE THE BODY OF CHRIST IS (IN HEAVEN), THERE WILL THE EAGLES, THE TRIBULATION SAINTS, BE GATHERED

Luke 17:35-37 says, "Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 36 Two men shall be in the field; the ONE SHALL BE TAKEN, and the other left. 37 And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body (soma, the body, as a sound whole, from sozo, safe, preserve, make whole, i.e., the Body of Christ that was caught up in the First-Trump Rapture) is (i.e., it has been in Heaven ever since the First-Trump Rapture), thither will the eagles (the Tribulation saints) be gathered together."

The type in Ex 19:4 says, "I bare you on EAGLE'S WINGS, and brought you unto myself."

Isa_40:31 says, "But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; THEY SHALL MOUNT UP WITH WINGS AS EAGLES; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

THE SIXTH SEAL IS OPENED

The darkness comes at the opening of the sixth seal on the Day of God's Wrath.

Rev 6:12 says, "And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake (i.e., there will be a worldwide earthquake when the asteroids impact Earth); and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood".

Rev 6:17 says, "For the great DAY of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?"

> > Revelation 3:10
> > "Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world."
> > Therefore our Lord appears "immediately after the tribulation" of Israel to rapture His Church/bride in the middle of the 70th Week, and He returns at the end of the "hour of trial" of the whole world at His Second Coming with His Church/bride. It is a perfect plan!

Speaking of a perfect plan, the Lord has pre-planned three important things to happen on a Feast of Trumpets that falls on Monday. Jesus was born on the Feast of Trumpets, MONDAY, Sept 4, 5 BC (Julian).

The First-Trump Rapture seems to be coming on the upcoming Feast of Trumpets, MONDAY, Sept 17, 2012 (Gregorian). I think Mid-Trib will be Nov 8/9, 2012, so we are not far apart on this now.

We will come back with Jesus at the Second Advent. I think the Marriage of the Lamb will be on the Feast of Trumpets, MONDAY, Sept 14, 2015 (Gregorian), because the 144,000 that are to be caught up in the Last-Trump Rapture are added to the wise-virgin group caught up in the First-Trump Rapture.

Rev 14:1-5 says,"And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads. 2 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: 3 And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. 4 These are they which were not defiled with women; for THEY ARE VIRGINS. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the FIRSTFRUITS unto God and to the Lamb. 5 And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God."

Since having too many Bibles on it caused my old computer to quit, I only have the KJV and KJV+ on my new computer. I have to look at these things in the KJV so I can look up the original words in the KJV+ (Strong's Concordance). I now use Blue-Letter Bible for comparing other versions.

Rev 3:9-12 (KJV) says, "Behold, I will make them (probably those that accept British Israelism) of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. 10 Because thou hast kept the word of MY patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. 12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God".

"MY PATIENCE" IS TALKING ABOUT HIS PATIENCE, HIS PATIENT WAITING

He said, "MY", G3450, mou, The simpler form of G1700; emou, "A prolonged form of G3449; of me: - me, mine, my, of me: - I, me, mine (own), my."

"PATIENCE" (G5281), hupomone, From G5278 (take patiently, tarry behind); cheerful (or hopeful) endurance, constancy: - enduring, patience, patient continuance (waiting).

I think verse 10 means that because we have kept the word of HIS PATIENT WAITING by waiting patiently ourselves, trusting that he will keep us from the hour of temptation (peirasmos, putting to proof by the experience of evil) that will come upon the whole world to try them.

WHAT IS HE PATIENTLY WAITING FOR?

R.B. Thieme taught that at the Second Advent, we would each bump one demon. That could mean that Jesus was waiting until the number of men saved equals the number of demons to be lost.

I don't think we will go into the Great Tribulation when the Mark of the Beast is required to be able to buy or sell. Now is when we should tell people how to be saved, then hold fast and wait for Jesus to come quickly. He comes quickly at the First-Trump Rapture.

HOW TO BE SAVED

John 3:16-18 says, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."

Rom 10:9,10 says, "if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."

Act 4:10-12 says, "Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. 11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner (i.e., the top stone of the Giza pyramid, which is 5776 inches tall with the capstone installed, pointing to the year 5776 for the crowning of Christ, probably on the Feast of Trumpets, Tishri 1, 5776, Sept 14, 2015). 12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."

HE WILL COME QUICKLY

Rev_2:5 says, "Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place (Heaven, Rev 1:13):, except thou repent."

Rev_2:16 says, "Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth."

Rev_22:7 says, "Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book."

Rev_22:12 says, "And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be."

Rev_22:20 says, "He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus."

THE TRIAL OF OUR FAITH

1Pe_1:7 says, "That THE TRIAL OF YOUR FAITH, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory AT THE APPEARING OF JESUS CHRIST".

CHRIST WILL APPEAR WHEN THE SIGN OF THE SON OF MAN IS SEEN IN THE SKY

> > Matthew 24:27-29
> > "For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together. Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light..."

Mat 24:27,28 (KJV) says, "For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 28 For wheresoever the carcase (ptoma, a ruin, a lifeless body, i.e., the church of Thyatira that was thrown into the Tribulation) is (i.e., it is Vatican City in Rome, but will be moved to Babylon, Iraq), there will the eagles (aetos, high flyers, i.e., the Roman Tribulation saints) be gathered together (soonago, gathered up, assembled together)."

Re: Matthew 24:28, John Gill said, "here the Roman armies are intended, whose ensigns were eagles; and the eagle still is, to this day, the ensign of the Roman empire" (John Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible).

Rev 2:18-29 says, "And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira (meaning thoroughly married) write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass; 19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. 20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication (i.e., joining together, in a world church), and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. 21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication (joining); and she repented not. 22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her (i.e., join with her) into great tribulation (the last half of the Tribulation, i.e., these will miss the First-Trump Rapture, and if true believers, go up in the Last-Trump Rapture), except they repent of their deeds. 23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works. 24 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden. 25 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. 26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: 27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. 28 And I will give him the morning star (i.e., Heaven, Saturn, the third heaven, the one that Paul visited, II Cor 12:1-4). 29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches."

In the picture below, Saturn, marked with an "h" for heaven, is a morning star in Virgo on Sept. 17, 2012. Saturn is the third heaven, (1) Mars, (2) Jupiter, and (3) Saturn. Venus, Jupiter and Mercury are also up.



Mt 24:29-31 says, "Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 And THEN SHALL APPEAR THE SIGN OF THE SON OF MAN IN HEAVEN: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and THEY SHALL SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a TRUMPET (i.e., the last trump, I Cor 15:51-54), and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of HEAVEN to the other."

These saints in Heaven were caught up in the First-Trump Rapture.

Mar 13:26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
Mar 13:27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the EARTH to the uttermost part of HEAVEN."

The saints from the Earth are caught up to heaven in the Last-Trump Rapture.

Mt_24:28 says, "For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For wherever the carcass (ptoma, a ruin, a lifeless body) is, there the eagles (aetoi, high flyers) will be gathered together. Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light..."

Rev 2:18-29 says, "And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass; 19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. 20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. 21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. 22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery (i.e., join) with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. 23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works. 24 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden. 25 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. 26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: 27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. 28 And I will give him the morning star. 29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches".

> > Revelation 3:10
> > "Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world.."
> > Therefore our Lord appears "immediately after the tribulation" of Israel to rapture His Church/bride in the middle of the 70th Week, and He returns at the end of the "hour of trial" of the whole world at His Second Coming with His Church/bride. It is a perfect plan!

Mt 24:27-31 says, "For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 28 For wheresoever the carcase (ptoma, ruin, lifeless body, corpse) is, there will the eagles (aetos, an eagle, from its wind like flight) be gathered together. 29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 And THEN SHALL APPEAR THE SIGN OF THE SON OF MAN IN HEAVEN: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, AND THEY SHALL SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING IN THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN with power and great glory. 31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a TRUMPET (i.e., on the Feast of Trumpets), and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, FROM ONE END OF HEAVEN TO THE OTHER."

These gathered from one end of heaven to the other got there in the First-Trump Rapture.

Mt 24:37-42 says, "But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what HOUR your Lord doth come."

THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE, AS THE DAYS OF NOAH

Luke 17:26,27 says, "And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the DAYS (plural) of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all."

Luke 17:22-27 says, "And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see ONE OF THE DAYS OF THE SON OF MAN, AND YE SHALL NOT SEE IT. 23 And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them. 24 For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day. 25 But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation. 26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the DAYS of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE, AS THE DAYS OF LOT, WHEN THE SON OF MAN IS REVEALED

Continuing, Luke 17:28-37 says, "Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom IT RAINED FIRE AND BRIMSTONE from heaven, and destroyed them all (i.e., it is the Day of God's Wrath). 30 Even THUS SHALL IT BE IN THE DAY WHEN THE SON OF MAN IS REVEALED (i.e., when they see the Sign of the Son of Man in the sky).31 In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back. 32 Remember Lot's wife. 33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it. 34 I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. 35 Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 36 Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 37 And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, WHERESOEVER THE BODY (soma, body, as a sound whole) IS (i.e, the Body of Christ is in Heaven), THITHER WILL THE EAGLES (i.e., the high flying Tribulation saints) BE GATHERED TOGETHER."

Zec 9:14 says, "And the LORD shall be seen over them (i.e., they will see the Sign of the Son of man), and his arrow (chets, piercer, i.e., the asteroid) shall go forth as the lightning: and the Lord GOD shall blow the trumpet, and shall go with whirlwinds of the south."

Ex_19:4 says, "Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I BARE YOU ON EAGLES' WINGS, AND BROUGHT YOU UNTO MYSELF."

It does seem that the Rapture of the Bride of Christ will be caught up by Mid Trib. Therefore, the hour of trial could be the Great Tribulation, when the False Prophet wants everyone in the world to take the Mark of the Beast.

Below are the names, themes and idioms of the Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets) celebration that Jeffrey posted on Five Doves 9-4:

Teshuvah (repentance)
Rosh HaShanah (Head of the Year, Birthday of the World)
Yom Teruah (the Day of the Awakening Blast [Feast of Trumpets)
Yom HaDin (the Day of Judgment)
HaMelech (the Coronation of the Messiah)
Yom HaZikkaron (the Day of Remembrance or memorial)
The time of Jacob's (Ya'akov) trouble (the birthpangs of the Messiah, Chevlai shel Mashiach)
The opening of the gates
Kiddushin/Nesu'in (the wedding ceremony)
The resurrection of the dead (rapture, natza1)
The last trump (shofar)
Yom Hakeseh (the hidden day)"

"The resurrection of the dead (rapture, natza1)" fits both Raptures on the Feast of Trumpets, the First-Trump Rapture on Monday, Tishri 1, 5773, Sept. 17, 2012.
"HaMelech (the Coronation of the Messiah)," fits the "last trump" Rapture, which I think will take place on Monday, Tishri 1, 5776, Sept 14, 2015.

I think the Marriage of the Lamb will take place on the Feast of Trumpets, Sept 14, 2015. Agape
