THE THIRD TEMPLE IS TO BE BUILT BETWEEN THE DOME OF THE ROCK AND THE AL AQSA MOSQUE

That is where it was in the first place. The aqueduct came into the outer wall at Wilson's Arch and turned southeast. There was no way it could have supplied water to the Dome of the Rock area.

The Pope is pushing it.

MY REPLY TO AN EMAIL FROM MY FORMER PASTOR

I am surprised to hear from you...

I have been studying the Bible as hard as I can go ever since 1960, and have found out something about the timing of the Rapture that I think you would like to know.

FIRST, SOME HISTORY

In the 1960s and early 1970s, I lived in La Mirada, and read books from BIOLA's Seminary Collection constantly for seven years. We were members of Bethany Baptist Church in Whittier, but several times I took a group of young people that came to my house to study the Bible to hear Chuck Smith at Calvary Chapel in Santa Ana.

Then we moved to Lomita and attended Rolling Hills Covenant Church when you were pastor. Hungry to learn more about the Bible, I listened to your tapes every week.

I was sure you and those coming out of Dallas Theological Seminary were right about the Pre-Trib Rapture until recently.

I was answering an email asking how Revelation was organized when I learned something myself in a flash when I reread Rev 13:5-11.

THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE OF ITH 4:16,17 WILL TAKE PLACE MID-TRIB

Being immersed in Pre-Trib theology, I know you will think "That can't be," but to me, Scripture proves it will be Mid-Trib.

"THEM THAT DWELL IN HEAVEN" ARE THERE DURING THE REIGN OF ANTICHRIST, WHICH IS THE FIRST HALF OF THE TRIBULATION

Rev 13:5-11 proves it.

It says, "And there was given unto him (i.e., ANTICHRIST, the first beast, probably Pope Francis, who was chosen 3-13-2013) a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies (i.e., he said that God was not divine); and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months (i.e., until Mid-Trib). 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and THEM THAT DWELL IN HEAVEN (i.e., the wise-virgin saints who are caught up just before the False Prophet comes to power Mid-Trib). 7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints (i.e., the foolish virgins left behind), and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 9 If any man have an ear, let him hear. 10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: HE THAT KILLETH WITH THE SWORD MUST BE KILLED WITH THE SWORD. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. 11 And I beheld ANOTHER BEAST (i.e., the Satan-possessed False Prophet, who comes to power Mid-Trib) coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon."

Satan has two comings to power in man. He indwells Judas Iscariot and the False Prophet, the son of perdition.

Rev 13:14 says, "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 (i.e., Antichrist), which had THE WOUND BY A SWORD, and did live."

THE DEPARTURE IS JUST BEFORE THE FALSE PROPHET IS REVEALED MID-TRIB

2Th 2:3 says, "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day (i.e., day of the Lord in the Vatican, Alexandrine and Sinaitic Codeces) shall not come, except there come a falling away (lit., DEPARTURE, as in the Geneva Bible) first, and that man of sin (i.e., the False Prophet) be revealed, the son of perdition".

This man will sit in the Temple. We are the temple of the Holy Spirit. Maybe the literal temple cannot be built until we are gone. Priests have been practicing building the literal Temple, and say it can be built in three months. I expect it to be built soon after Moses and Elijah arrive Mid-Trib.

THE OLD TESTAMENT SAINTS WERE TAKEN TO HEAVEN ON RESURRECTION DAY

Eph 4:8-10 says, "Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. 9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? 10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)"

ASCENSION DAY PICTURED BOTH THE MID-TRIB RAPTURE AND THE RETURN OF MOSES AND ELIJAH, BUT IT MAY NOT GIVE US THE DATE

Act 1:7-11 says, "And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. 8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. 9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men (i.e., MOSES AND ELIJAH) stood by them in white apparel; 11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? THIS SAME JESUS, WHICH IS TAKEN UP FROM YOU INTO HEAVEN, SHALL SO COME IN LIKE MANNER as ye have seen him go into heaven."

THE TRANSFIGURATION PICTURED THE MID-TRIB RAPTURE AND THE ARRIVAL OF MOSES AND ELIJAH

Mat 17:1-3 says, "And after six days (i.e., 6000 years) Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart (i.e., to Heaven), 2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. 3 And, behold, there appeared unto them MOSES AND ELIAS talking with him."

Moses and Elijah come to earth at the time of the Mid-Trib Rapture, and prophesy during the 1260-day Great Tribulation.

THE TWO RAPTURES, ONE OF THE WISE VIRGINS, AS THE DAYS OF NOAH, THE OTHER OF THE FOOLISH VIRGINS, AS THE DAYS OF LOT

Luk 17:22 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."

The first Rapture is in ITh 4:16,17 (i.e., when none yet have immortal bodies) and one in ICo 15:51-54 (i.e., when all saints, including Paul, receive immortal bodies). The first is Mid-Trib. The second is on the Day of the Lord at the end of the shortened Great Tribulation.

At the last Rapture, the Bride is already in heaven.

Joe_2:16 says, "Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet (chuppah).

Isa 26:19,20 says, "Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead. 20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation (zaam, froth at the mouth fury) be overpast."

THE "COME UP HITHER" OF REV 4:1 IS THE FIRST RAPTURE, AND THE "COME UP HITHER" OF REV 11:12 IS THE LAST RAPTURE

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, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter."

Rev 11:12,13 says, "And they (i.e., Moses and Elijah) 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. 13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake".

There is no earthquake at the first Rapture, but there is a "great earthquake" at the last Rapture.

AT THE FIRST RAPTURE, THE ELDERS ARE GIVEN THEIR CROWNS

Rev 4:4 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold."

AT THE LAST RAPTURE, THE ELDERS SAY, "THOU HAST TAKEN TO THEE THY GREAT POWER, AND HAST REIGNED"

Rev 11:15-17 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, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned."

IN REV 10:11, JOHN WAS TOLD TO PROPHESY ABOUT THE FIRST RAPTURE "AGAIN"

Rev 10:11 says, "Thou must prophesy AGAIN before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings."

There was no chapter division at that time. John went right on with what is now chapter 11.

IT TELLS US THAT WE, THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, "RISE" MID-TRIB

In the next three verses, John prophesies AGAIN. As in Rev 4:1, he starts off with the first Rapture. This time, there can be no mistaking the fact that it is Mid-Trib, because afterward the two witnesses prophesy during the 1260-day Great Tribulation.

Rev 11:1-3 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 (i.e., the wise-virgin saints that are caught up Mid-Trib). 2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months (i.e., during the Great Tribulation). 3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses (i.e., Moses and Elijah, who stood by the Lord at the Transfiguration), and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days (i.e., during the Great Tribulation), clothed in sackcloth."

Psa 27:5 says, "IN THE TIME OF TROUBLE (i.e., in the Tribulation) HE SHALL HIDE ME IN HIS PAVILION: in the secret of his tabernacle (i.e., the Holy of Holies represented Heaven) shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock."

JOHN PLAYED OUT THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE AS IF IT WAS ON A SUNDAY IN THE TRIBULATION

Rev 1:9-11 says, "I John, who also am your brother, and companion IN TRIBULATION, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos (i.e., meaning mortal), for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10 I was (lit., became) in the Spirit on the LORD'S DAY(i.e., Sunday), and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega".

IN THE PREVIEW OF THE RAPTURE, AS JOHN WAS CAUGHT UP "IN TRIBULATION," THE SEVEN CHURCHES WERE CAUGHT UP

Then Rev 1:12-18 says, "And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; 13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. 14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. 16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. 17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: 18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death."

THERE IS A GREAT EARTHQUAKE AT THE LAST RAPTURE

Rev 11:12,13 is the last Rapture. It says, "And they (i.e., Moses and Elijah) heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, COME UP HITHER. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud (i.e., representing the saints); and their enemies beheld them. 13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake".

THE MID-TRIB RAPTURE IS WHEN MICHAEL STANDS UP AND SATAN IS CAST OUT OF HEAVEN

Rev 12:6-12 says, "And the woman (i.e., Israel) fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place (i.e., Petra) prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days (i.e., during the Great Tribulation). 7 And there was war in heaven (i.e., at 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 (arti, just now, i.e., at Mid-Trib) is come salvation (soteria, rescue, deliverance, salvation, i.e., the first Rapture), and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they (i.e., the FIRST-TRUMP SAINTS) 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).

THERE IS BOTH A MID-TRIB RAPTURE (ITH 4:16,17) AND A RAPTURE AT THE END OF THE SHORTENED GREAT TRIBULATION (ICO 15:51-54)

Dan 12:1 says, "And at that time (i.e., Mid-Trib) shall MICHAEL stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be (i.e., afterward) a time of trouble (i.e., the Great Tribulation), such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and AT THAT TIME (i.e., Mid-Trib) THY PEOPLE SHALL BE DELIVERED, EVERY ONE THAT SHALL BE FOUND WRITTEN IN THE BOOK."

NONE, INCLUDING PAUL, OBTAIN IMMORTAL BODIES UNTIL THE LAST 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."

WE WILL NOT BE HERE DURING THE GREAT TRIBULATION

Rev 3:10 says, "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."

AFTER THE WHOLE TRIBULATION, THOSE OF THE FIRST RAPTURE ARE GATHERED FROM ONE END OF "HEAVEN" TO THE OTHER

Mat 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, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of HEAVEN to the other."

THEN THOSE OF THE SECOND RAPTURE ARE GATHERED "FROM THE UTTERMOST PART OF THE EARTH"

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."

OF THOSE SAINTS CAUGHT UP IN THE FIRST RAPTURE, ALL SING THE NEW SONG

Rev 5:9,10 says, "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."

OF THOSE CAUGHT UP IN THE LAST RAPTURE, ONLY THE 144,000 SING THE NEW SONG

Rev 14:1-3 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."

ANOTHER THING I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOU

My husband died in December 2011. He was 87 and had white hair.

On the following April 2nd, he came to see me in his celestial body. I had just come into the bedroom and laid down to watch TV, but hadn't turned it on yet.

Ed was thinner, had his dark brown hair back, and had on a shirt and pants that looked like they were made of black silk shirt material. The fabric flowed around his shin as he walked. He had on black wing-tip shoes.

Wearing an ear-to-ear grin, he strode in fast and walked up beside the bed, stood by my elbow and faced the way he came in.

I asked him if he was 30 or 33. In his normal voice that sounds like no other, he said, "33."
I asked if we could be together forever. He said, "Yes." (That was what I needed to know. Mt 22:30 had me confused.)
I asked if there were female angels in heaven. He said, "Yes."
I asked if he had gotten with his family. He said, "Yes."
I asked if he had gotten with my family. He said, "Yes."
I asked if he had a piano. He said, "Yes" and walked through the wall. The last thing I saw was a tiny triangle of his shirt that billowed out behind him.

If you hear of anything like this happening to anyone else, I would appreciate it if you would let me know.

BREAKING NEWS

"RABBI LAU CALLS FOR THIRD TEMPLE NEXT TO THE DOME OF THE ROCK"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmLO9txPTe8

Several years ago, I sent my reasons why the Temple was between the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa Mosque to the Temple Mount Faithful. The aqueduct came into the Temple wall at Wilson's Arch and turned southeast.

Since we are the temple of the Holy Spirit, I think we will be raptured before the third temple is built.

INCOMING EMAIL, RE: end times

I hope all is well with you. Greetings from Kamloops, BC Canada. We're experiencing unusual weather patterns in our part of the world this year.

I've been studding with great fervor this last year to learn and prepare for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

There's a few things that have me puzzled and pondering. I wished to share with you and maybe gain more insight and revelation.

Firstly, I believe there will be a great out pouring of God's Spirit as described in Joel 2.28.

Also the coming of the prophet Elijah as spoken of in Malachi.

Furthermore, Jesus said we will do greater works than He, because "I go to the Father".

I honestly believe that God loves people and wants to redeem many from this generation we live in.

So based upon these thoughts, how can these things happen with a any minute rapture? God taking us out of the world? It just doesn't make any sense to me and creates a conflict.

I would love to go home and be with the Lord, but I don't think he has another plan than His people the Church to harvest souls of the earth. To be His hands and feet and declare His words in this hour.

In my heart, I don't think I have all the revelation or understanding of His plan. However, I hear Him prompting me to prepare my life and vessel for an outpouring and great revival and harvest of souls. "prepare the nets"

What are your thoughts? I hope to hear from you.

Your brother in Christ.

MY REPLY

Considering that I am 87 and diabetic, I am doing amazingly well. Having forgotten to take my pills, gone into a Diabetic Coma and almost dying, I came out of it to hear a nurse say, "The Lord loves you very very much. Many don't make it." I am now on insulin.

After that, my doctor wanted me to walk with a cane. I tried, but finally quit. I just don't need it. I have good circulation in my ankles, walk on the treadmill, and work my ankles when watching TV. It pays off.

As for the weather, lately, we had temperatures predicted at 118. I've been living in S. California since 1955 and never heard of such until now.

> > I believe there will be a great out pouring of God's Spirit as described in Joel 2.28.

I think that comes after Christ returns.

Joe 2:27-32 says, "And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed. 28 And it shall come to pass AFTERWARD, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: 29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. 30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. 31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. 32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call."

> > Also the coming of the prophet Elijah as spoken of in Malachi.

Moses and Elijah will come when we, the temple of the Holy Spirit, RISE Mid-Trib.

Rev 11:1-3 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. 2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. 3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth."

That "RISE" is the same as the "COME UP HITHER" of Rev. 4:1, and there is no earthquake.

John was told in the previous verse to prophesy AGAIN.

Rev 10:11 says, "And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings."

There are two Raptures, one in ITh 4:16,17 and one in ICo 15:51-54. The first one is Mid-Trib. The last one will be at the end of the Great Tribulation, and there will be a great earthquake.

During the Tribulation, there are two leaders. The Antichrist rules the first half. The False Prophet rules the last half, the Great Tribulation.

Rev 13:5-11 says, "And there was given unto him (i.e., the Antichrist) a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies (i.e., Pope Francis said that God was not divine); and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months (i.e., 3-13-13 until Mid-Trib). 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and THEM THAT DWELL IN HEAVEN (i.e., the wise-virgin saints). 7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints (i.e., the foolish-virgin saints left behind), and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 9 If any man have an ear, let him hear. 10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. 11 And I beheld another beast (i.e., the Satan-possessed False Prophet) coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon."

Rev 11:12,13 says, "And they (i.e., Moses and Elijah) 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. 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."

Rev 12:6-12 says, "And the woman (i.e., Israel) fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place (i.e., Petra) prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. 7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now (arti, just now, i.e., Mid-Trib) is come salvation (soteria, rescue, deliverance, i.e., the Rapture), and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, 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).

Dan 12:1 says, "And at that time (i.e., Mid-Trib) shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered (malat, escape, leap out), every one that shall be found written in the book."
