JESUS WARNED THE JEWS THEY WERE GOING TO SUFFER 'GREAT TRIBULATION' FOR CRUCIFING HIM

Jesus warned the Jews that they were going to SUFFER GREAT TRIBULATION for crucifying Him on the day He was crucified according to :

Luke 23:28-31
"Daughters of Jerusalem, .....weep for yourselves, and FOR YOU YOUR CHILDREN (descendants). for indeed THE DAYS ( of great tribulation) ARE COMING in which they will say , Blessed are the barren, wombs that never bore, and breasts which never nursed! Then they will begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us ! and to the hills, Cover us ! For if they (the Jews) do these things (crucify Me ) in the green wood (of the newly made cross) what will be done (to them in the future) in the dry (when the wood of the cross is long dry) ? "

Luke 21:22-23
"For THESE ARE THE DAYS ( spoken of in Luke 23:28-31 ) OF VENGEANCE (of the Lord) that all things which are written may be FULFILLED. Woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies for there will be GREAT DISTRESS (tribulation ) in the land (Israel) and wrath upon THIS PEOPLE ( the Jews)."

Matthew 24:29-31
"IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION OF THOSE DAYS ( in Israel) ....He will send His angels with the great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect..."

So you see, the GREAT TRIBULATION of God's wrath upon the people of Israel occurs BEFORE THE RAPTURE of the Church , AFTER which comes Satan's 42 month long "HOUR OF TEMPTATION", BEFORE the Second Coming of the Lord according to Rev 3:10 and Rev 13:5.

"Do not lead us into temptation (those 42 months) , but deliver (rapture) us from evil (Satan)."
Bruce Warner, Scripturalist for the Lord

It doesn't say the great tribulation, just the tribulation, which is the first half of the Tribulation. The Great Tribulation is the last half of the Tribulation. God's wrath doesn't take place before the Rapture of the Church.

Rom_5:9 says, "being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath".

This passage is not talking about a Rapture from Earth. It is a gathering from one end of heaven to the other. Therefore, on the day of the Second Rapture, the Rapture of the Church has already taken place.

Mat 24:29-31 says, "Immediately after the tribulation of those days (i.e., after the last half of the Tribulation, the Great Tribulation) 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 (tote, at that time) shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven (i.e., as in the Gog and Magog war of Eze. 38:18-23): and then (tote, at that time) 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 (i.e., they see the Sign of the Son of Man in the sky). 31 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." (emphasis mine)

I think the First-Trump Rapture will be Mid-Trib. The first half of the Tribulation is not the Great Tribulation. That is the last half, the part that is to be shortened, and it looks like it will be shortened a lot.

Rev_1:9,.10 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 (meaning mortal), for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10 I was (ginomai, became) in the Spirit ON THE LORD'S DAY."

We will be raptured on the Lord's day. When is that?

The Crucifixion day is the greatest Lord's Day so far. Maybe we will become in the Spirit on Thu, April 2, 2015, Nisan 13, 5775, anniversary of the Crucifixion on Thu. Nisan 13, 3790,April 6, 30 AD.

The Last-Trump Rapture will be on the Day of the Lord, the first day of Jesus' Millennial Kingdom. That will also be the Day of God's Wrath (Rev. 6:17; 7:9-14).

Speaking of Mid-Trib, Rev_2:22 says, "Behold, I will cast her (Thyatira) into a bed, and them that commit adultery (i.e., join) with her into great tribulation (i.e., the last half of the Tribulation), except they repent of their deeds."

Mat_24:21 says, "For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be."

Mar_13:24-27 says, "But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, 25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. 26 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 to the uttermost part of heaven."

Rev_7:14 says, "And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These (i.e., those caught up in the Last-Trump Rapture) are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb."

Only after the Church saints are gathered to the General Assembly in Heaven are the saints that have to wash their robes in the blood of Christ gathered from the Earth.

When those coming out of the Great Tribulation get to the General Assembly in Heaven, the church of the firstborn are already there. The space between the two Raptures is the shortened Great Tribulation. It might be the space between April 2, 2015 (anniversary of the Crucifixion) and Sept. 14, 2015 (anniversary of Jesus' birth).

Jesus was born on the Feast of Trumpets. His conception was Kislev 24. See Haggai 2:18,19. He was the seed of Gen. 3:15 that was in the barn (megurah, from magur, lodging, temporary abode) on that day.

Heb 12:22-24 says, "But ye (i.e., the second born) 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".

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 (i.e., both), 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 (i.e., the first trump), then the princes (i.e., the elders of Rev. 4:4), which are heads of the thousands of Israel, shall gather themselves unto thee."

When the elders are gathered, we will be gathered.

Rev 5:8-10 (KJV) says, "And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. 9 And they (the saints) sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on (epi, on or over) the earth."

We will reign on or over the earth.
Revelation 5:10 (KJ21) says,
"and hast made us unto our God kings and priests; and we shall reign on the earth."

Revelation 5:10 (CJB) says,
"You made them into a kingdom for God to rule,
cohanim to serve him; and they will rule over the earth."
Our home will be New Jerusalem. It will come down and orbit the Earth like the Moon. The Earth is given to the Hebrews.
Rev_3:12 (KJV) says, "Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name."

Rev_21:2 says, "And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband."

In Joh_12:26, Jesus said, "where I am, there shall also my servant be".

In Mat_5:12, Jesus said, "Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven".

Mat_6:20 says, "But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal". Agape

I will gladly write a $1,000.00 check and send it to anyone who can show me A SINGLE SCRIPTURE that speaks of the TIME PERIOD AFTER THE RAPTURE or BETWEEN THE RAPTURE and the SECOND COMING of the Lord as "the tribulation" or the "great tribulation". I have studied the Scriptures for over 50 years !

If you cannot, that means that you are making-up YOUR OWN SCRIPTURE when calling the rapture 'PRE-TRIBULATION'.

Scripture says, "Immediately AFTER THE TRIBULATION of those days.....He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet , and they will gather together (rapture) His elect from the four winds..." Matthew 24:29-31

The TIME PERIOD AFTER THE RAPTURE is ONLY spoken of in the Scriptures as :

"I also will keep you from the HOUR OF TEMPTATION which shall come upon the whole world..." Revelation 3:10

"Lead us NOT INTO TEMPTATION, but deliver (rapture) us from evil (Satan)." Matthew 13:6

The 1,260 day period of time AFTER THE RAPTURE , and BEFORE the Second Coming of the Lord , is SATAN'S TEMPTATION on earth according to : "he was given authority to continue for 42 months." Revelation 13:5

The "tribulation" or "great tribulation" BEFORE THE RAPTURE is God's wrath of vengeance ONLY upon the land and the people of Israel according to " For these are the days of vengeance...there will be great distress (tribulation) in the land , and WRATH upon THIS PEOPLE." Luke 21:22-23 Bruce Warner, Scripturalist for the Lord

REVELATION IS WRITTEN AS IF THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE IS "AT HAND"

In the first chapter, Rev 1:3 says, "Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand."

In the last chapter, Rev 22:10 says, "Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand."

In Rev. 22:20, Jesus signs off with "Surely I come quickly. Amen."

JOHN ACTED OUT THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE, WHICH WILL TAKE PLACE MID-TRIB

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 (meaning mortal), for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10 I was (ginomai, lit., became) in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia".

AT THE TIME OF THE MID-TRIB FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE OF I THESS 4:16,17 AND REV. 4:1, JESUS ADDRESSED THE CHURCH OF THYATIRA

He said, "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." (Rev. 2:22)

Therefore, the GREAT TRIBULATION follows the FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE, WHICH IS MID-TRIB.

AT MID-TRIB, ISRAEL HAS A FLIGHT FOLLOWED BY THE GREAT TRIBULATION THAT IS TO BE SHORTENED

Mat 24:20-22 says, "But pray ye that your flight (phuge, fleeing, escape, flight) be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: 21 For THEN SHALL BE GREAT TRIBULATION, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened."

Mar 13:18-20 says, "And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter. 19 For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. 20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days."

AT MID-TRIB, WE WILL BE RAPTURED WHEN SATAN AND HIS FALLEN ANGELS ARE CAST OUT OF HEAVEN, THEN THE SHORTENED TRIBULATION FOLLOWS

Rev 12:12-14 says, "Therefore rejoice, ye 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 (i.e., Mid-Trib), having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time (i.e., the shortened Great Tribulation). 13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. 14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time (i.e., the 3.5 year Great Tribulation that is to be shortened), from the face of the serpent."

THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE OF I COR 15:51-54 WILL BE ON THE DAY OF GOD'S WRATH AT THE END OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION

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

Rev. 7:14-17 says, "These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. 16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. 17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes."

AT THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE, ALL THE SAINTS SING THE NEW SONG

Rev 5:8-10 says, "And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. 9 And they (i.e., the saints out of all nations) sung a NEW SONG, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth."

AT THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE, ONLY THE 144,000 ISRAELITES CAN SING THE NEW SONG

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."

Psa 149:1-9 says, "Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a NEW SONG, and his praise in the congregation of saints. 2 Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. 3 Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp. 4 For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation. 5 Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds. 6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand; 7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; 8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; 9 To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD."

AT THE TIME OF THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE OF I COR. 15:51-54, JESUS SAID, "These are they which came out of GREAT TRIBULATION, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb." (Rev. 7:14)

ON THE DAY OF GOD'S WRATH, MOSES AND ELIJAH ARE ALSO CAUGHT UP IN THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE

Rev 11:11-13 says, "And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them (i.e., MOSES AND ELIJAH), and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. 12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, COME UP HITHER (i.e., at the Last-Trump Rapture). And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. 13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven."

OF THE DAY OF GOD'S WRATH

Rev 19:1,2 says, "And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: 2 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore (i.e., Thyatira), which did corrupt the earth with her fornication (joining), and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand."

OF THE SECOND ADVENT REV. 19:14 SAYS

"And the armies (plural) which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean." Agape

All Scriptures that speak of the tribulation and the great tribulation refer to a period of time BEFORE the tribulation because Jesus said, Matthew 24:29-31 "IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION..." THE RAPTURE HAPPENS.in Matthew 24:30-31 Capt. Bruce

MY REPLY

THE FIRST RAPTURE IS MID-TRIB, FOLLOWED BY THE GREAT TRIBULATION

The Tribulation (i.e., the first half of the 7-year Tribulation) cannot follow itself. Neither can the Great Tribulation (i.e., the last half of the 7-year Tribulation) follow the Great Tribulation.

The first half of the 7 years is called the Tribulation. It ends with the Rapture of the Bride-of-Christ saints Mid-Trib. The last half of the Tribulation is called the Great Tribulation. It ends with the Rapture of the Friends-of-the-Bridegroom saints on the Day of the Lord, which is also the Day of God's Wrath.

There is a First-Trump Rapture Mid-Trib. Following that is the Great Tribulation that is to be shortened. It is followed by the Last-Trump Rapture. After that, God's Wrath hits Earth, in which the asteroid Wormwood of Rev. 8:11 and a mountain-sized asteroid of Rev. 8:8 impact this globe. Earth will be knocked upside down. The dead will lay around the Earth.

Isa_24:1 Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof."

Mat 24:29-31 (KJV) 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, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other."

Those gathered from one end of heaven to the other are the Bride of Christ saints that were caught up MId-Trib.

Mar 13:23-27 says, "But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things. 24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light (i.e., as in Rev. 6:12), 25 And the stars (aster, stars, asteroids) of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. 26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory (i.e., they will see the Sign of the Son of Man). 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 Last-Trump Rapture of the Friends of the Bridegroom) to the uttermost part of heaven" (i.e., the Bride of Christ group that was caught up MId-Trib.

Those caught up in the First-Trump Rapture Mid-Trib are already wearing white robes. Those caught up in the Last-Trump Rapture have to wash their robes before they can be caught up.

A great number of saints, too many to count, will be caught up on the Day of God's Wrath. Rev_7:14 says, "These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb."

The Day of the Lord, which is the day Jesus receives his Millennial Kingdom and sits as judge at the Judgment Seat of Christ, is the day of the last-Trump Rapture.

OUR DEPARTURE COMES BEFORE THE MAN OF SIN IS REVEALED

2 Thess 2:1-5 (HNV) says, "Now, brothers, concerning the coming of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, and our gathering together to him, we ask you not to be quickly shaken in your mind, nor yet be troubled, either by spirit, or by word, or by letter as from us, saying that the day of Messiah (i.e., the Day of the Lord) had come. Let no one deceive you in any way. For it will not be, unless THE DEPARTURE COMES FIRST, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of destruction, he who opposes and exalts himself against all that is called God or that is worshiped; so that HE SITS AS GOD IN THE TEMPLE OF GOD, SETTING HIMSELF UP AS GOD."

The Setting of this miracle play, The Revelation of Jesus Christ, is ten days before the Mid-Trib Rapture of the Bride of Christ.

To the church of Thyatira, Jesus said, "Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds" Rev. 2:22).

Rev_2:10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life."

Rev 1:9 I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation (i.e., at Mid-Trib), and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. Rev 1:10 I was (ginomai, lit., became) in the Spirit on the Lord's day (i.e., the anniversary of the Crucifixion?), and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet (i.e., the First-Trump Rapture), Rev 1:11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last".

FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE

The first half of the Tribulation takes place before the First-Trump Rapture of I Thess. 4:16,17.

It says,"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: 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."

Rev 12:5,6 says, "And she (i.e., Israel) brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. 6 And the woman fled into the wilderness (i.e., Mid-Trib), where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days."

The shortened last half, the Great Tribulation, takes place before the Last-Trump Rapture. After the second Rapture, all raptured saints will literally become immortal.

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."

Rev_7:14 says, "These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb."

Joh_3:29 says, "He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled."

Heb 12:22-24 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".

Rev 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood".

Mar_13:24 But in those days, after that tribulation (i.e., the Great Tribulation), the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light."

Mat 24:21,22 says, "For then (i.e., Mid-Trib) shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened."

Mat 24:29-31 says, "Immediately after the tribulation of those days (i.e., after the Great Tribulation, the last half of the 7-year Tribulation) shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light (i.e., there will be a Solar Eclipse on Sept. 13, 2015), and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 And then (tote, at that time, i.e., on the Day of the Lord, the Day of God's Wrath, maybe on the Feast of Trumpets, Sept. 14, 2015) shall appear the SIGN OF THE SON OF MAN in heaven: and then (tote, at that time) shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see (i.e., on the Sign of the Son of Man) 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 from the four winds, FROM ONE END OF HEAVEN TO THE OTHER."

Mar 13:19-27 says, "For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. 20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days. 21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not: 22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. 23 But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things. 24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, 25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. 26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory (i.e., they see the Sign of the Son of Man in the sky). 27 And then (tote, at that time) 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 Last-Trump Rapture) to the uttermost part of heaven" (i.e., those that were caught up Mid-Trib).

Therefore, the Bride-of-Christ saints will be caught up to Heaven Mid-Trib, and the Friends-of-the-Bridegroom saints will be caught up just before God's Wrath hits Earth at the end of the shortened Great Tribulation.

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."

So, the First-Trump Rapture will take place Mid-Trib, and the Great Tribulation that is to be shortened will follow it. Agape
