Pro and Con 1868
A MID-TRIB SCENARIO GLEANED FROM SCRIPTURE (cont'd from Pro and Con 1867)
THE ANTICHRIST ARISES AT THE BEGINNING OF THE TRIBULATION AND RULES 42 MONTHS, THEN THE FALSE PROPHET COMES TO POWER MID-TRIB
Rev 13:5 says, "And there was given unto him (i.e., Antichrist) a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months" (i.e., the first half of the Tribulation).
THE WISE-VIRGINS ARE CAUGHT UP TO HEAVEN IN THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE AT MID-TRIB
Rev 13:6-9 says, "And he (i.e., the first beast, the Antichrist) opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and THEM THAT DWELL IN HEAVEN.7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints (i.e., the foolish virgins left behind at the time of the first Rapture), and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 9 If any man have an ear, let him hear."
AT THE SECOND RAPTURE, AT THE END OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION, THE SAINTS WILL BE CALLED "TO THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY AND CHURCH OF THE FIRSTBORN" IN HEAVEN, "TO THE SPIRITS OF JUST MEN MADE PERFECT"
Heb 12:18-25 says, "For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched (i.e., Mt. Sinai), and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest, 19 And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more: 20 (For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart: 21 And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:) 22 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 (teleioo, completed, finished), 24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. 25 See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped (pheugo, vanish, flee away, escape) not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: 26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven."
Both Heaven and Earth will be shaken when Satan's asteroid Wormwood hits Babylon.
Isa 22:16-19 says, "What hast thou here? (i.e., Babylon) and whom hast thou here (i.e., the Satan-possessed False Prophet), that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulchre here, as he (i.e., 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 (i.e., at Babylon in Iraq, not tiny Israel): 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 (matstsav, fixed spot, i.e., where it, the flaming sword, was stationed in Gen 3:24), and from thy state (masmad, 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 (i.e., in the eastern sky) of the garden of Eden Cherubims (i.e., the four terrestrial planets), and a flaming sword (i.e., Satan's home) which turned every way (i.e., rotated and orbited), to keep (shamar, to guard) the way of the tree of life" (i.e., to guard the way to the tree of life in Heaven, which is farther out in our solar system than the terrestrial planets).
Eze 10:2 says, "And he spake unto the man clothed with linen, and said, Go in between the wheels (i.e., the orbits of the four terrestrial planets, of which Earth is one, Eze 1:15), even under the cherub (i.e., Satan), and fill thine hand with coals of fire from between the cherubims (i.e., terrestrial planets), and scatter them over the city (i.e, Jerusalem). And he went in in my sight."
Mat 24:20-22 says, "But pray ye that your flight (phuge, escape, i.e., in the First-Trump Rapture) be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: 21 For then (i.e., at the Last-Trump Rapture on the Day of the Lord at the end of the Great Tribulation) shall be great tribulation (i.e., when Satan's asteroid Wormwood will impact Babylon), such as was not since the beginning of the world (kosmos, orderly arrangement, i.e., Adam's day) 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."
ACCORDING TO THE SECRET OF THE STAIRS, THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE SEEMS TO BE IN THE SPRING
Song of Solomon 2:10-16 says, "My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. 11 For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone (i.e., Nisan is past); 12 The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle (lit., turtledove, which comes in April and leaves in October) 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 (i.e., in early June). Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away. 14 O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, 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. 15 Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes. 16 My beloved is mine, and I am his: he feedeth among the lilies" (i.e., the Madonna Lily blooms at Pentecost).
"ALL YE INHABITANTS OF THE WORLD, AND DWELLERS ON THE EARTH, SEE YE, WHEN HE LIFTETH UP AN ENSIGN (i.e., FLAG) ON THE MOUNTAINS; AND WHEN BE BLOWETH A TRUMPET, HEAR YE."
A trumpet was to be blown on the beginning of each month and on Feast Days.
Isa 18:3-7 says, "All ye inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see ye, when he lifteth up an ensign (i.e., the UN flag) on the mountains (i.e., kingdoms); and when he bloweth a trumpet, hear ye (i.e., trumpets are blown on the first of the month and on feast days). 4 For so the LORD said unto me, I will take my rest, and I will consider (nabat, regard with pleasure) in my dwelling place like a clear heat upon herbs, and like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest. 5 For AFORE THE HARVEST, WHEN THE BUD IS PERFECT, AND THE SOUR GRAPE IS RIPENING IN THE FLOWER, he shall both cut off the sprigs with pruning hooks, and TAKE AWAY (sur, depart, i.e., in the First-Trump Rapture) and cut down the branches (netiyshah, tendrils, offshoots). 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. 7 In that time (eth, due season, i.e., spring) shall the present (shay, gift) be brought unto the LORD of hosts of a people scattered and peeled, and from a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden under foot, whose land the rivers have spoiled, to the place of the name of the LORD of hosts, the mount Zion."
AFTER THE GREAT TRIBULATION, THE FIRST-TRUMP SAINTS ALREADY IN HEAVEN WILL BE CALLED TO THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY
Mat 24:29-31 says, "Immediately after the tribulation of those days (i.e., on the Day of the Lord) 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: 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. 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."
THEN THE LAST-TRUMP SAINTS WILL BE GATHERED FROM EARTH
Mar 13:27 says, "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 FALSE PROPHET COMES TO POWER AFTER THE MID-TRIB FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE
Rev 13:11,12 says, "And I beheld ANOTHER (allos, another of the same kind) BEAST (i.e., the Satan-possessed False Prophet) coming up out of the earth (i.e., Satan after being cast out of heaven Mid-Trib); and he had two horns (i.e., two comings to power) like a lamb (i.e., Jesus), and he (i.e., the now Satan-possessed False Prophet) spake as a dragon. 12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast (i.e., the Antichrist) before (enopion, in the presence of) him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed."
THE FALSE PROPHET SAYS THEY SHOULD WORSHIP AN IDOL OF THE ANTICHRIST OR BE KILLED
Rev 13:13-15 says, "And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, 14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. 15 And he had power to give life (pneuma, a current of air, breath, be it the Holy Spirit, an angel or a demon, i.e., in this case a demon) unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed."
THE PENALTY FOR WORSHIPPING THE BEAST AND HIS IMAGE AND TAKING THE MARK
Rev 14:9-11 says, "And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name (i.e., the 666)."
THE FALSE PROPHET IS REVEALED MID-TRIB, AT THE TIME OF THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE OF I TH 4:16,17
2Th 2:7-9 says, "For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he (i.e., the Holy Spirit) who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way (i.e., at the time of the First-Trump Rapture). 8 And then (tote, at that time, i.e., Mid-Trib) shall that Wicked (i.e., the False Prophet) be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders".
"COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE" IN REV 18:4 REPRESENTS THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE OF I COR 15:51-54, WHICH TAKES PLACE AT THE END OF THE SHORTENED GREAT TRIBULATION
Rev 18:4 says, "And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her (i.e., Babylon), my people (i.e., including the foolish virgins), that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues."
AFTER THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE, THE ASTEROID WORMWOOD WILL IMPACT EARTH AT BABYLON NEAR THE EUPHRATES RIVER
Rev 18:21 says, "And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all."
Jer 50:23-26 says, "How is the hammer of the whole earth cut asunder and broken! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations! 24 I have laid a snare for thee, and thou art also taken, O Babylon, and thou wast not aware: thou art found, and also caught, because thou hast striven against the LORD. 25 The LORD hath opened his armoury, and hath brought forth the weapons of his indignation (i.e., the 'flaming sword,' the asteroid Wormwood): for this is the work of the Lord GOD of hosts in the land of the Chaldeans. 26 Come against her from the utmost border, open her storehouses: cast her up as heaps, and destroy her utterly: let nothing of her be left."
Gen 3:24 says, "So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east (i.e., in the eastern sky) of the garden of Eden Cherubims (i.e., the four terrestrial planets), and a flaming sword (i.e., the asteroid Wormwood) which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life."
ANTICHRIST, THE FIRST BEAST, IS IN POWER DURING THE FIRST HALF OF THE TRIBULATION; HIS REIGN ENDS AT THE TIME OF THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE, THEN THE FALSE PROPHET WILL REIGN
Rev 17:8-10 says, "The beast (i.e., Satan) that thou sawest was (i.e., in Judas Iscariot), and is not (i.e., in man now); and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit (i.e., Mid-Trib), and go into perdition (i.e, the False Prophet, the second son of perdition, Judas Iscariot was the first): and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast (i.e., Satan) that was (i.e., in Judas Iscariot), and is not (i.e., in man now), and yet is (i.e., exists). 9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains (i.e., kingdoms), on which the woman (i.e., the harlot church, head of the Mystery Religion of Babylon) sitteth. 10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen (kings of Babel, Babylon II, Media-Persia, Greece, Holy Roman Empire), and ONE IS (i.e., ANTICHRIST, leader of the Ecclesiastical Holy Roman Empire), and the other (i.e., THE FALSE PROPHET, leader of Babylon III) is not yet come; and when he cometh (i.e., MId-Trib), he must continue A SHORT SPACE (i.e., during the shortened Great Tribulation).
Mat_24:22 says, "And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake (i.e., the foolish virgins, including Laodiceans and some of Thyatira left behind at the Mid-Trib Rapture) those days shall be shortened."
Rev 3:16 says, "So then because thou (i.e., the Laodiceans) art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth."
Rev 2:18-21 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."
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."
Pro 10:27 says, "the years of the wicked shall be shortened."
THE FIRST RAPTURE TAKES PLACE MID-TRIB
Rev 17:1-18 says, "And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters (i.e., 'peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues', v. 15): 2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication (i.e., joined), and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. 3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness (eremos, desert, i.e., Babylon): and I saw a woman (i.e., a religious group) sit upon a scarlet coloured beast (i.e., Satan), full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. 7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. 8 The beast that thou sawest (i.e., Satan) was, and is not (i.e., he is cast out of heaven into Earth Mid-Trib); and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition (i.e., the False Prophet): and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. 9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. 10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen (i.e., Babel, Babylon II, Media Persia, Greece, and the Holy Roman Empire, all which worshipped the sun god), and one is (i.e., the Ecclesiastical Holy Roman Empire), and the other (i.e., Babylon III) is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space (i.e., the shortened Great Tribulation).
11 And the beast that was, and is not (i.e., Satan), even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition (i.e., the False Prophet). 12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings (i.e., rulers over the 10 regions of the world), which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast (i.e., the False Prophet). 13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. 14 These shall make war with the Lamb (i.e., Jesus), and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and THEY THAT ARE WITH HIM ARE CALLED, AND CHOSEN, AND FAITHFUL." (i.e., at this time, the wise virgin saints have already been raptured) 15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. 16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. 17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast (i.e., the False Prophet), until the words of God shall be fulfilled. 18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city (i.e., Vatican City), which reigneth over the kings of the earth."
Dan 7:7,8 says, "After this (i.e., after Greece) I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth (i.e., iron represents Rome, Dan. 2:32,33): it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. 8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn (i.e., the False Prophet), before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things."
JUDGMENT IS SET, THE REST OF THE BEASTS HAVE THEIR DOMINION TAKEN AWAY, AND JESUS IS GIVEN EVERLASTING DOMINION
Then Dan 7:17-25 says, "These great beasts, which are four, are four kings (i.e., kings of Babylon II, Media-Persia, Greece and Rome), which shall arise out of the earth. 18 But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever. 19 Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast (i.e., the False Prophet), which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron (i.e., Rome, Dan.2:32,33), and his nails of brass (i.e., Greece); which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet; 20 And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows. 21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints (i.e., including the foolish virgins), and prevailed against them; 22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High (i.e., at the Judgment Seat of Christ); and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom. 23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth (i.e., Rome), which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and SHALL DEVOUR THE WHOLE EARTH, AND SHALL TREAD IT DOWN, AND BREAK IT IN PIECES (i.e., ten divisions). 24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another (i.e., the False Prophet) shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first (i.e., the Antichrist), and he shall subdue three kings. 25 And he (i.e., the False Prophet) shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out (i.e., bela, afflict in a mental sense) the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time" (i.e., the 3.5 year Great Tribulation).
THE LENGTH OF THE TRIBULATION WILL BE 2300 DAYS (1260 + 1260 - 220 = 2300), SO THE GREAT TRIBULATION WILL BE 1040 DAYS
Dan 8:11-14 says, "Yea, he (i.e., Satan) magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down. 12 And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered. 13 Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice (i.e., the mass), and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot? 14 And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed."
Dan 11:31 says, "And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination (shiqquts, disgusting idol, i.e., 'image of the beast,' Rev. 13:15) that maketh desolate."
Tue. March 19, 2013, Nisan 8, 5773 (present Pope's inauguration day, possible beginning of the Tribulation) + 42 months = Mon. Sept. 19, 2016, Elul 16, 5776 (Mid-Trib).
Tue. March 19, 2013 + 2300 days = Tamuz 3, 5779, Sat. July 6, 2019 (end of the Tribulation).
Possible date of First-Trump Rapture in the spring, on Pentecost, when there are tender grapes (Song of Solomon 2:10f) Sivan 6, 5776, Sun. June 12, 5776.
2Th 2:1-6 says, "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ (i.e, should be Day of the Lord, as in the Vatican Codex of 325 AD, the Siniatic Codex of 400 AD, and the Alexandrine Codex of 331 AD) is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first (i.e., should be DEPARTING first as in the Geneva Bible, it is the First-Trump Rapture), and that man of sin (i.e., the False Prophet) be revealed (i.e., afterward), the son of perdition (i.e., he is Satan-possessed); 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God (i.e., Mid-Trib). 5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he (i.e., the False Prophet) might be revealed in his time" (i.e., Mid-Trib).
Dan 8:23-25 says, "And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences (i.e., the Satan-possessed False Prophet), shall stand up. 24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power (i.e., by Satan's): and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. 25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes (i.e., Jesus); but he shall be broken without hand."
Dan 12:11 says, "And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up (i.e., Mid-Trib), there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days."
Sept. 19, 2016 + 1290 days = Mon. Sept. 30, 2019, Tishri 1, 5780.
Thu. Nisan 1, 5780 = March 26, 2020.
Dan 12:12,13 says, "Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. 13 But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days."
Sept. 19, 2016 + 1335 days = Sat. May 16, 2020, Iyar 22, 5780, when Daniel will stand in his own lot in Israel.
THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE OF I TH 4:16,17 TAKES PLACE MID-TRIB, BEFORE THE FALSE PROPHET COMES TO FULL POWER
Jesus is given the seven-sealed book after the Rapture. We have to be in heaven before the first seal is broken. All the seals belong to the Great Tribulation. The rider on the white horse is the False Prophet.
Rev 6:2 says, "And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow (toxon, plain fabric, i.e., he is a man of the cloth, a religious leader); and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer."
THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE OF I COR 15:51-54 TAKES PLACE AT THE BREAKING OF THE SIXTH SEAL
Rev 6:12-17 says, "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; 13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. 14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?"
Rev 7:14,15 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. 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."
AT THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE, ALL SING THE NEW SONG; AT THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE, ONLY THE 144,000 CAN SING THE NEW SONG
Rev 5:8-10 says, "...saints. 9 And they 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."
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."
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."
