MY REPLY TO AN EMAIL, OMITTED BECAUSE OF THE LENGTH

> > SECOND COMING ON YOM KIPPUR 2015

I AM CONVINCED THAT THE LORD COMES AS THE FORMER RAIN ON TISHRI 1 AND AS THE LATTER RAIN ON NISAN 1.

MY REASONS

Jesus was conceived on Kislev 24 (Haggai 2:18,19) and born on Tishri 1, the Feast of Trumpets. I think he will return on Nisan 1, 5776, Saturday, April 9, 2016, the first day of the REGNAL YEAR, JUBILEE YEAR, AND SACRED YEAR, the anniversary of his Resurrection on April 9, 30 AD.

The last day of the week, Saturday, named by the Romans "dies Saturni," Saturn's Day, fits. In Mt. 12:8, Mark 2:28, and Luke 6:5, Jesus said that he was Lord of the Sabbath, and Saturn is Heaven (Eze. 1:1,26-28).

Deu_11:14 says, "I will give you the rain of your land in HIS DUE SEASON, THE FIRST RAIN (i.e., Tishri 1, autumn) AND THE LATTER RAIN (Nisan 1, spring)."

Deu_28:12 says, "The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, THE HEAVEN TO GIVE THE RAIN UNTO THY LAND IN HIS SEASON".

Psa_72:6 says, "HE SHALL COME DOWN LIKE RAIN (i.e., spring and fall) upon the mown grass: as showers that water the earth."

Job_29:23 says, "THEY WAITED FOR ME AS FOR THE RAIN; and they opened their mouth wide as for the LATTER RAIN" (i.e., Nisan 1).

Pro_16:15 says, "In the light of the king's countenance is life; and his favour is as a cloud of the LATTER RAIN" (i.e., spring rain).

Hos 6:1-3 says, "Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. 2 After two days (i.e., 2000 years) will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. 3 Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and HE SHALL COME UNTO US AS THE RAIN, AS THE LATTER (i.e., Nisan 1) AND FORMER (i.e., Tishri 1) RAIN UNTO THE EARTH."

Joe_2:23 says, "rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the FORMER RAIN moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the FORMER RAIN, and the LATTER RAIN IN THE FIRST MONTH."

The First Advent was on Tishri 1, as the former rain. The Second Advent should be on Nisan 1, as the latter rain.

Zec_10:1 says, "ASK YE OF THE LORD RAIN IN THE TIME OF THE LATTER RAIN" (i.e., Nisan 1).

Jas_5:7 says, "Be patient therefore, brethren, unto THE COMING OF THE LORD. BEHOLD, THE HUSBANDMAN WAITETH FOR THE PRECIOUS FRUIT OF THE EARTH, AND HATH LONG PATIENCE FOR IT, UNTIL HE RECEIVE THE EARLY (i.e., Tishri 1) AND LATTER RAIN" (i.e., Nisan 1).

THE SECRET OF THE STAIRS SUGGESTS APRIL FOR THE RAPTURE, BECAUSE THE TURTLEDOVES RETURN IN APRIL, BUT SOME TIME AFTER NISAN 1; APRIL 2 WILL BE NISAN 13, ANNIVERSARY OF THE CRUCIFIXION ON THURSDAY, NISAN 13, 3790, APRIL 6, 30 AD

Son 2:10-14 says, "My beloved (i.e., representing Christ) spake, and said unto me, RISE UP, MY LOVE, MY FAIR ONE, AND COME AWAY. 11 For, lo, the winter is past, the rain (i.e., Nisan 1) is over and gone; 12 The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle (turtledove, that comes in April) is heard in our land; 13 The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away. 14 O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock (i.e., in Christ), in the secret places of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely."

"ALL YE INHABITANTS OF THE WORLD...SEE YE"

Isa 18:3-6 says, "All ye inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see ye, when he lifteth up an ensign (i.e., UN flag accepted Dec. 7, 1946, Pearl Harbor Day) on the mountains (kingdoms, i.e., the United Nations); and when he bloweth a trumpet, hear ye. 4 For so the LORD said unto me, I will take my rest, and I will consider (nabat, scan, regard with pleasure) in my dwelling place (i.e., Heaven) like a clear heat upon herbs, and like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest. 5 For afore the harvest (i.e., it starts June 1), when the bud is perfect (tamam, complete), and the sour grape is ripening in the flower, he shall both cut off the sprigs (zalzal, tremulous sprigs, as shaken in the wind) with pruning hooks, and take away (sur, depart, i.e., rapture them) and cut down the branches (i.e., those having no fruit). 6 They shall be left together unto the fowls of the mountains, and to the beasts of the earth: and the fowls shall summer upon them, and all the beasts of the earth shall winter upon them."

Why did the Lord change Israel's first month to Nisan? Now Israel has two New Year days, Nisan 1 and Tishri 1. I have wondered why Israel kept both calendars. Now, I am beginning to see why. It looks like the First-Trump Rapture will be in Nisan, and the Last-Trump Rapture will be in Tishri. Both months are the head of the year. Nisan is the first month of the Sacred, Regnal and Jubilee years. Tishri is the first month of the Civil Year.

"Mishnah Rosh Hashanah 1:1 specifically defines Rosh Hashanah's "new year" status. "The first of Tishrei is the beginning of the year [rosh hashanah] for years, sabbatical cycles, and the jubilee." http://www.myjewishlearning.com/holidays/Jewish_Holidays/Rosh_Hashanah/History/Rabbinic/Rosh_Hashanah_as_New_Year.shtml

Israel counts Tishri as the first month of the Sabbatical Year and Jubilee Year, but I think both should start with Nisan. The Jubilee is announced on the previous Day of Atonement, and starts on the next Nisan 1. It doesn't make sense for the Sabbatical Year to start on Tishri 1 and end on Tishri 10, and the Jubilee Year to start on Tishri 10 and end on Nisan 1. I think both the Sabbatical Year and the Jubilee Year should start on the first day of the first month, Nisan 1. The fall feasts are set in the 7th month. Therefore, the first month should be Nisan.

Lev 16:29 30 says, "And this shall be a statute for ever unto you: that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month (i.e., on the Day of Atonement), ye shall afflict your souls, and do no work at all, whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger that sojourneth among you: 30 For on that day shall the priest make an atonement for you, to cleanse you, that ye may be clean from all your sins before the LORD."

Lev_23:24 says, "Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation."

Lev_23:27 says, "Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD."

Lev_23:34 says, "Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD."

Lev_25:9 says, "Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land."

If Tishri is the seventh month, Nisan is the first month.

In the Gospel in the Stars, the sign of Nisan is Aries, the Ram. It stands for Christ, the Lamb of God. It has one foot on the band that connects the two fish in Pisces. Those two fish represent the two Raptures, and they both take place before the Second Advent. The fish heading upward toward Cepheus, the great king that represents Christ as the King of kings, represents the First-Trump Rapture. The other fish is heading back to get more water, i.e., Holy Spirit, from Aquarius, which represents Christ as the giver of the Holy Spirit.

For the last 2000 years, the Sun has been in Pisces during the Spring Equinox, March 20 in 2015. It looks like the first Rapture could take place between March 20 and June 1, 2015. April 2, anniversary of the Crucifixion on Nisan 13 fits. The Crucifixion was what made the Rapture possible.

I think the First-Trump Rapture will take place near the Spring Equinox, March 20, 2015, and the Last-Trump Rapture will take place near the Fall Equinox, Sept. 23, 2015. They just might be April 2 and September 14, 2015. The Great Tribulation is to be shortened or no flesh would be saved.

Mar_13:20 says, "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." Agape

INCOMING EMAIL, RE: THE RAPTURE CANNOT HAPPEN AND WILL NOT HAPPEN UNTIL

The rapture CANNOT happen and WILL NOT happen UNTIL the anti-Christ is REVEALED to the world according to :

2 Thessalonians 2:1 & 3
"Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and OUR GATHERING TOGETHER (RAPTURE) TO HIM ...........THAT DAY WILL NOT COME UNLESS.......THE MAN OF SIN (anti-Christ) IS REVEALED....."

"Let no one deceive you by any means"

Many have been trying to deceive you over the past years, haven't they, because THE ANTI-CHRIST HAS NOT YET BEEN REVEALED TO THE WORLD, but he is about to be REVEALED as the new leader of Israel.( Daniel 11:21-45 )

When he is REVEALED that will fulfill the SECOND REQUIREMENT NECESSARY for the RAPTURE TO OCCUR . The first requirement is the world's "falling away" from the word of God known as the 'apostasy'. No one can argue that requirement hasn't already been fulfilled.

"Watch" for the, soon to come, REVEALING OF THE ANTI-CHRIST to the whole world, and then we are soon ON OUR WAY !!!

If you would like to dig a little deeper, consider this.

Our English Bibles are translations, not originals. The originals were written in Hebrew, a little Chaldean in Daniel, and Greek.

Seven English Bibles published before the King James Version have DEPARTING FIRST in 2 Thess. 2:3.

The First-Trump Rapture comes before the revealing of the man of sin, the second beast.

THE FIRST BEAST

Rev 13:5,6 says, "And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle (skene, tent), and THEM THAT DWELL IN HEAVEN."

THE SECOND BEAST

Rev 13:11,12 says, "And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed."

THE SEVEN EARLY BIBLES

1. Wycliffe Bible (1330) has "departynge first"
2. Tyndale Bible (1525/26) has "departynge first"
3. Coverdale Bible 1535) has "departynge first"
4. Crammer Bible (1539) has "departynge first"
5. Geneva Bible (1560) has "departing first"
6. Breeches Bible (1583) has "departing first"
7. Beza Bible (1583) has "departing first"

(2Th 2:1-4) GENEVA BIBLE says, "Nowe we beseech you, brethren, by the comming of our Lord Iesus Christ, and by our assembling vnto him, 2 That ye be not suddenly mooued from your minde, nor troubled neither by spirit, nor by worde, nor by letter, as it were from vs, as though the DAY OF CHRIST (i.e., it should be DAY OF THE LORD, see below) were at hand. 3 Let no man deceiue you by any meanes: for that day shall not come, except there come A DEPARTING FIRST, and that that man of sinne be disclosed, euen the sonne of perdition, 4 Which is an aduersarie, and exalteth him selfe against all that is called God, or that is worshipped: so that he doeth sit as God in the Temple of God, shewing him selfe that he is God."

The reason the Geneva Bible doesn't have DAY OF THE LORD instead of DAY OF CHRIST is simple. Three older manuscripts were found AFTER it was translated. They said day of the Lord. The First-Trump Rapture is the Day of Christ. The Last-Trump Rapture is on the Day of the Lord.

The older MSS are the Sinaitic Codex (331 AD), the Alexandrian Codex (400), and the Vatican Codex (325).

The World English Bible translators figured it out. The First-Trump Rapture comes first. The False Prophet will be revealed second.

2 Thess. 2:3,4 (WEB) says, "Now, brothers, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and our gathering together to him, we ask you 2 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 Christ (should be day of the Lord) had come. 3 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, 4 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."

Several modern Bibles have "day of the Lord" in 2 Th 2:2.

The NLT says, "Don't be so easily shaken or alarmed by those who say that the day of the Lord has already begun. Don't believe them, even if they claim to have had a spiritual vision, a revelation, or a letter supposedly from us."

The NIV says, "not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us—whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter—asserting that the day of the Lord has already come."

The HCSB says, "not to be easily upset in mind or troubled, either by a spirit or by a message or by a letter as if from us, alleging that the Day of the Lord has come."

The NASB says, "that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come."

The RSV says, "not to be quickly shaken in mind or excited, either by spirit or by word, or by letter purporting to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come."

The ASV says, "to the end that ye be not quickly shaken from your mind, nor yet be troubled, either by spirit, or by word, or by epistle as from us, as that the day of the Lord is just at hand"

The WEB says,"that ye be not soon shaken in mind, nor troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter, as if it were by us, as that the day of the Lord is present."

Mat 24:1-17 says, "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) 16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: 17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house".

This is Mid-Trib, the time of the First-Trump Rapture. It is followed by the Great Tribulation, which is to be shortened.

Mar_13:20 says, "And except that the Lord had shortened those days (i.e., the Great Tribulation), no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days."

The way things look now, the Great Tribulation will be very short, maybe between April 2 and Sept. 14, 2015. The remaining spread of days seems to be limited by the coming Jubilee Year. End time events seem to take place in the Sabbatical Year that starts Nisan 1, 5775 and ends Nisan 1, 5776, the first day of the Jubilee Year.

March 20, 2015, Nisan 1, 5775,

After the Mid-Trib First-Trump Rapture, the Great Tribulation that is to be shortened will take place. The Last-Trump Rapture will follow the Great Tribulation.

Rev 7:9-17 says, "After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; 10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. 11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, 12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen. 13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? 14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, 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."

The First-Trump Rapture follows the first half of the Tribulation. The Last-Trump Rapture follows the Great Tribulation, the last half of the Tribulation that has to be shortened or no flesh would be saved. Agape

INCOMING EMAIL, RE: THE ANTI-CHRIST BECOMES 'THE BEAST'

THE ANTI-CHRIST BECOMES 'THE BEAST'

The anti-Christ is revealed to the world as "a vile person" BEFORE the rapture according to ( Daniel 11:21 ), He becomes the leader of Israel until "he comes to his end" of his "appointed time" according to ( Dan 11:45 ). Then AFTER the great tribulation of Israel ( Daniel 12:1 ), and AFTER the rapture of the Church ( Dan 12:1-3 ) WHEN Satan is cast down to earth ( Rev 12:7-12 ); Satan gives the anti-Christ his power, throne and great authority of Satan at which point the anti-Christ then BECOMES THE BEAST according to ( Rev 13:1-2 ).

Therefore we are told that the anti-Christ is revealed to us BEFORE THE RAPTURE, but he does not become the beast with the power, throne and great authority of Satan until AFTER THE RAPTURE of the Church when SATAN IS CAST DOWN to earth. Satan is cast down, and the Church is raptured up at the SAME TIME according to ( Rev 12:7-12 ). The anti-Christ THEN becomes the beast according to (Rev 13:1-2 ), and then "is given authority TO CONTINUE for forty-two months" until the Second Coming of the Lord.

RAPTURED CHRISTIANS will NOT meet Satan, the anti-Christ beast, or the false prophet beast, but the left-behind will !!!

MY REPLY

> > the anti-Christ then BECOMES THE BEAST according to ( Rev 13:1-2 ).

The Antichrist and the False Prophet are two different people.

Rev 13:1,2 says, "I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy (i.e., Pontifex Maximus). 2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority."

Rev_13:11,12 says, "And I beheld ANOTHER BEAST coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12 And HE exerciseth all the power of the FIRST BEAST before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the FIRST BEAST, whose deadly wound was healed."

Rev_19:20 says, "And THE BEAST was taken, and with him THE FALSE PROPHET that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These BOTH were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone."

Rev_20:10 says, "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where THE BEAST AND THE FALSE PROPHET are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever."

> > RAPTURED CHRISTIANS will NOT meet Satan, the anti-Christ beast, or the false prophet beast , but the left-behind will !!!

The left-behind will in the Great Tribulation that follows the First-Trump Rapture. Then the saints out of the Great Tribulation will be caught up in the Last-Trump Rapture on the Day of God's Wrath. The first half of the Tribulation will end in a Rapture. The last half of the Tribulation, called the Great Tribulation, will also end in a Rapture.

Rev 13:3-5 says, "And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. 4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? 5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months."

That 42 months is the first half of the Tribulation. It ends with the First-Trump Rapture.

Rev. 13:6 says, "And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven."

Following Mid-Trib, Rev 13:11,12 says, "And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed."

Of the end of the Great Tribulation, Rev 7:14 says, "And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb." Agape

INCOMING EMAIL, RE: THE ANTI-CHRIST BECOMES 'THE BEAST'

That's right, the anti-Christ and the false prophet are two different beasts. Satan is also a beast. The three beasts together are 666. the tribulation of Israel is cut-short and ended by Jesus at the time of the rapture according to Matt 24:29 "Immediately AFTER the tribulation of those days.." The 1,260 days AFTER the rapture are NOT, but they are Satan's "hour of temptation" into which Jesus will NOT lead us into temptation.

MY REPLY

Rev_3:10 says, "Because thou hast kept the word of my patience (hupomone, cheerful, hopeful, enduring patience), I also will keep thee from the hour (hora, day, hour, instant, season) of temptation (peirasmos, putting to proof by experience of evil solicitation), which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth."

Those wearing white wedding garments will be caught up in the First-Trump Rapture Mid-Trib (Rev. 4:1, 11:1). Those left behind will wash their garments in the blood of Christ during the shortened Great Tribulation. Then they will be caught up in the Last-Trump Rapture on the Day of God's Wrath.

FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE, THE FIRST ESCAPE, THE OPEN DOOR

Rev 4:1 says, "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".

Rev 3:8 says, "I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an OPEN DOOR, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name."

Luk_21:36 says, "Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to ESCAPE all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man."

1Co_3:17 says, "If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are."

Rev 11:1 says, "And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, RISE, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein."

1Co_6:19 says, "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?"

2Co_6:16 says, "And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people."

Rev_3:12 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."

Eph_6:12 says, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

Rev 12:7-12 says, "And there was war in heaven (i.e., MID-TRIB): 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, 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, 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, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time" (i.e., the shortened Great Tribulation).

LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE, STARTING AT MID-TRIB, WHEN THE TRIAL ENDS WITH AN ESCAPE

Rev 11:12 says, "And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, COME UP HITHER. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them."

1Co_10:13 says, "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape (ekbasis, go out, exit), that ye may be able to bear it."

Rev_7:14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb."

Rom_5:9 says, "Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him."

Jas_1:12 says, "Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him."

Heb_12:25 says, "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".

Mic_7:2 says, "The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net."

1Th_5:3 says, "For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape."

Mat_24:21-24 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. 22 Behold, I will cast her (i.e., the church of Thyatira) into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into GREAT TRIBULATION, except they repent of their deeds. 14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of GREAT TRIBULATION, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb." Agape

The left-behind will in the Great Tribulation that follows the First-Trump Rapture. Then the saints out of the Great Tribulation will be caught up in the Last-Trump Rapture on the Day of God's Wrath. The first half of the Tribulation will end in a Rapture. The last half of the Tribulation, called the Great Tribulation, will also end in a Rapture.

Rev 13:3-5 says, "And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. 4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? 5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months."

That 42 months is the first half of the Tribulation. It ends with the First-Trump Rapture.

Rev. 13:6 says, "And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven."

Following Mid-Trib, Rev 13:11,12 says, "And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed."

Of the end of the Great Tribulation, Rev 7:14 says, "And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb." Agape
