TRUTH OF THE GOSPEL MINISTRY

COMMENTARY

ON

WILL THERE BE A PRE OR POST RAPTURE EVENT, WHEN WILL IT HAPPEN AND THEN WHAT NEXT?

THIS IS PART 2 OF STUDY (READ PART 1 and PART 3)

(Matt 24:29-31 [KJV])

29. Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

 

This research work is explained in this presentation – HERE

 

To understand the timeline sequence of the pre or post tribulation rapture event in relation to The Day of the Lord (God's wrath) we will look at model 1 & 2 and compare with scripture. Model 1 is the pre-“great” tribulation and Model 2 is the post-tribulation (or pre-wrath) views. 

 

 

 

Before we go to scripture to see which model is supported we must first establish what is meant by defining some terms:

 

The Day of the Lord is also known as the time of God’s wrath.

(Isa 13:9 [KJV])

Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.

 

The rapture is the taking away of God’s people.

(1Thess 4:14-17 [KJV])

For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: 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.

 

Only one rapture: There is only one rapture that will occur.

 

Pre-tribulation is the belief that the church will be raptured before the “great” tribulation period. (model 1 or M1)

 

Post-tribulation is the belief that the church will be raptured after the tribulation period (including the great tribulation). This is also what TTGM calls the pre-wrath belief. (model 2 or M2)

 

The tribulation period is the time the world (unrighteous people that have rejected Yeshua teachings) persecutes and kills the people of God. The Day of the Lord or the wrath of God is the period when He (God) judges the world with His fierce anger.

 

Great tribulation is the time when the persecution of God’s people will reach a magnitude and severity like never before in world history. IMPORTANT: The great tribulation is not to be confused with the wrath of God. These are two different events. Tribulation is the evil done by the world to God’s people, whereas wrath is what God does to the world in His fierce anger.

 

The Elect – Saints of God or believers in Yeshua (Jesus) that have submitted their lives to His Lordship (ownership).

Some misguided bible teachers teach that the elect only refers to the Jews. However consider the following verses in the book of Mark.

(Mark 13:25-27 [KJV])

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.

 

Read what Yeshua (Jesus) says in the very last verse of Mark - while he was still speaking. He is addressing ALL and not just his Jewish brethren.

(Mark 13:37 [KJV])

And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

 

Yeshua has three recorded visits to Earth (future as of July 2017):

1st coming – Yeshua born to a virgin and He has returned to His Father in heaven.

2nd coming or return to earth – Yeshua is coming in the clouds for His elect and going back to heaven. He does not stand on solid ground.

3rd coming or final return – Yeshua’s return to start His 1000 year reign on planet earth from the city Jerusalem. He stands on solid ground.

TTGM Note: Some people say that there are 2 second comings of Yeshua, this however makes no logical sense (you either arrive the 1st, 2nd or a 3rd time).

 

IMPORTANT - Use the King James version of the Bible for study:

We trust and use the King James version because it was based on the majority text out of Antioch – Listen HERE . Corrupted versions water down key doctrines in scripture and it is for this reason we encourage serious believers to study from versions (eg. KJV) of the bible that are based on manuscripts that came from Antioch (the New Testament capital of the world).

 

The following research work is explained in this video presentation – HERE

 

 

To understand the timing of the rapture, we must understand what and when is the “Day of the Lord”. Then we examine M1 and M2 to see where it fits (rapture).

 

First we must establish when does the wrath of God start? Also known as “The Day of the Lord” (Isa 13:9)
How do we do this?

God gives us clues in his word and all the seeker has to do is tie them in and bring them together. Similar to what an investigator does on a crime scene.

 

We will look for the clues in the following verses and bring them together in the following columns and rows. We at TTGM hope you enjoy this research. We start in the Old Testament.

 

How to read the following?

Start to read from the top of the first column on the left. After you reach the bottom, go to the next column on the right, go down and then move to the next column to the far right.

 

Explanation is written first and then verses referred to follow after.

 

It is done this way so that the witnesses can be compared together in joint columns. This can also be called a “parallel comparison of scripture” (PCS).

 

1st Witness in the old Testament

 

This verse below tells us that the Day of the Lord is coming in the future (when) and it comes with destruction (what). Agrees with M1 and M2 views.

 

(Isa 13:6 [KJV])

Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.

----   ----  ----

This verse gives more about what the Day of the Lord brings with it. Agrees with M1 and M2.

 

(Isa 13:9 [KJV])

Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.

----   ----  ----

Now this verse gives us the clues we need as to specifically what to look for in the future. The clues are the stars of heaven and the constellations shall not give there light. Also The sun shall go dark and the moon light will not shine. The stars will not give their light. The world will both be dark in the day and in the night. IMPORTANT: Note the words, “in his going forth”. Who is “his?” Who is going forth at the start of the signs of The Day of the Lord? We believe that it is our Lord Yeshua that goes forth. Agrees with M2 and does not support M1.

 

(Isa 13:10 [KJV])

For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.

 

----   ----  -- Go to next column

 

2nd Witness

 

The following verse has another clue regarding the moon turning to blood on the Day of the Lord. It confirms that the sun will turn into darkness and the moon will take on a blood look. So we conclude that the moon will not shine but will have a blood look as well. Agrees with M1 and M2.

 

(Joel 2:31 [KJV])

The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.

 

----   ----  ----

Here is mentioned that the people of God will be delivered (hint of the rapture).

Agrees with M1 and M2.

 

(Joel 2:32 [KJV])

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.

 

----  --- Go to next column

 

 

 

 

 

3rd Witness

 

Now we go to Amos and he confirms one of the clues in Isaiah. The world will go dark. Agrees with M1 and M2.

 

(Amos 5:18 [KJV])

Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light.

 

 (Amos 5:19 [KJV])

As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him.

 

(Amos 5:20 [KJV])

Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?

----   ----  ---- next column

 

4th Witness

 

Now we go to Zephaniah and he confirms the following clues. The world will go dark(a day of darkness) . Agrees with M1 and M2.

 

(Amos 5:18 [KJV])

Woe unto you that desire the day of the

 

 

(Zeph 1:14 [KJV])

The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.

 

(Zeph 1:15 [KJV])

That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,

 

(Zeph 1:16 [KJV])

A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.

 

(Zeph 1:17 [KJV])

And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.

 

(Zeph 1:18 [KJV])

Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD'S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

 

----  ----  ---- Go below

 

 

From the Old Testament we have the clues that will mark the beginning of the Day of the Lord. Now we go to the New Testament to see if the clues turn up again and if they tell us when the wrath of God begins. Will it be before or after the Great Tribulation?

 

Clues summarized that will mark the Day of the Lord:

The sun will go dark

The moon will not give her light and will look like blood

The world will be dark

The stars of heaven and the constellations shall not give their light

It will be at His (Yeshua) going forth (We believe to be Jesus)

 

1st Witness in the  New Testament

 

We have first mention of the Great Tribulation in Matthew 24 and Yeshua’s warning to the believer (the elect); that if the days are not shortened no flesh will be saved. If you read the entire chapter, Yeshua gives a rundown of what will happen in the future including the Great Tribulation, notice He goes on to say that these days must be shortened. He is speaking to the believers and not to people yet to be converted (as M1 teaches). Why this observation? There is absolutely no mention of the elect being taken out before the Great Tribulation, only that the days must be shortened (or they all will be killed - no flesh spared). Again, there is also no mention of people being saved during the Great Tribulation. In fact everything mentioned in Matthew 24 is directed to the believer (elect) to experience. These verses in Matthew 24 do not support the M1 view. M1 does not support the believer seeing the great tribulation. However M2 supports the elect seeing and going through the Great Tribulation as stated in Matthew 24.  

 

(Matt 24:21 [KJV])

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

 

(Matt 24:22 [KJV])

And except those days (What days? The great tribulation days for the elect/believer) should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. (TTGM: so the “living” elect will avoid extinction because the days will be shorted for them –rapture)

----   ----  ----

Again notice after commenting on the Great Tribulation Yeshua tells the believers, “Then if any man”.  Yeshua uses a sequence approach by using the word “then” that follows after describing the Great Tribulation. Again this verse supports M2, as this view supports the elect going through the Great Tribulation.

 

(Matt 24:23 [KJV])

Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

----   ----  ----

Now after Yeshua mentions the Great Tribulation, He says in verse 29, “immediately after the tribulation of those days”. What days are Yeshua talking about?  The days that He mentioned before that ARE IN SEQUENCE (then, then, then and then).

The sequence of events includes the Great Tribulation period (those days). Again this verse supports M2 and not M1 viewpoint.

 

(Matt 24:29 [KJV])

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:

----   ----  ----

DID YOU CATCH THE CLUES?

Two signs (sun and moon becoming dark) from the Old Testament prophets are recorded here and they occur IMMEDIATELY after the tribulation (also including Great Tribulation) and all the other events mentioned earlier in Matthew 24. Again this verse supports M2 and not M1.

 

(Matt 24:29 [KJV])

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:

----   ----  ----

Here we have another sign given to us as soon as the sun and moon darken (darkness on the earth), the Son of man is coming in the clouds. All people (tribes) will see Him coming in clouds. The next sign is the elect being gathered (rapture). Notice this is the same elect that was mentioned earlier (if their days are not shortened no flesh will be saved). The days for the elect are shorted because they are removed from the earth. This is the rapture of the elect. Also we see the Son of Man coming in the clouds, this could only be His going forth as mentioned in Isaiah 13:10. M1 view not supported because they believe the Son of man will NOT be seen by all people. However, M2 view is supported because everyone will see the Son of man.

 

(Matt 24:30 [KJV])

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.

 

(Matt 24:31 [KJV])

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.

 

----   ----  ----

Notice another clue, the trumpet sound to announce the gathering of the elect (Zeph 1:16). M1 not supported. Agrees with M2

 

(Matt 24:31 [KJV])

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.

 

----   ----  -- Go to next column

 

Other witnesses

 

Here we have what is described as the specifics in the rapture event. Notice the trumpet (clue) as mentioned earlier taking place to mark the event. The event? It is the taking away of the elect (saints) at His coming. During/after the signs in the sun and moon. These verses support M2. M1 not supported.

 

(1Cor 15:51 [KJV])

Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

 

(1Cor 15:52 [KJV])

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.

----   ----  ----

Another set of verses that mention the rapture and the trumpet (clue) is sounded. Also we have the meeting in the clouds (other clue to the event). The Lord is in the clouds and His elect goes to meet Him where He is (in the air). These verses support M2. M1 not supported.

 

(1Thess 4:14 [KJV])

For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

 

(1Thess 4:15 [KJV])

For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

 

(1Thess 4:16 [KJV])

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:

 

(1Thess 4:17 [KJV])

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.

 

(1Thess 4:18 [KJV])

Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Final Witness

 

As in Matthew 24:30 at the start of The Lord’s Day all tribes (every eye) shall see Him (Yeshua).  This verse supports M2. M1 not supported. Reminder - M1 does not believe that every eye shall see Him

 

(Rev 1:7 [KJV])

Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

----   ----  ----

Here we have souls at the altar of God that were killed asking when will their blood will be avenged? They are told that they must wait until more must die before all is fulfilled (Matthew 24:9). What happens next is at the opening of the six seal. The opening of the six seal marks the fulfillment of the start of The Day of the Lord. The clues of the sun and the moon as we have seen before mark the start of God’s wrath. Notice the people on earth know this and make a direct reference in verse 17. They all say the wrath has come (not 3 ½ years later but as soon as they see the Son of man in the clouds). These verses support M2. M1 not supported.

 

 

(Rev 6:9 [KJV])

And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

 

(Rev 6:10 [KJV])

And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

 

(Rev 6:11 [KJV])

And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

 

(Rev 6:12 [KJV])

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;

 

After the above, then Yeshua appears in the clouds to meet his elect in the air.

 

(Rev 6:13 [KJV])

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.

 

(Rev 6:14 [KJV])

And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

 

(Rev 6:15 [KJV])

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;

 

(Rev 6:16 [KJV])

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:

 

(Rev 6:17 [KJV])

For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

----   ----  ----

And after the above occurs (the start of The Day of the Lord), the servants of God are sealed for their protection. From what? The outpouring of God’s wrath. This verse supports M2. M1 not supported.

 

(Rev 7:1 [KJV])

And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.

 

----   ----  ----

 

Now John notices a different scene unlike the first (souls at the altar). He sees a multitude in heaven that no man could number. These are the further killed as well as all believers (the elect in Christ) before the throne.  They are no longer saying how long will it take to have their blood avenged, but they are now praising God. Again all this is after the world sees the signs and the son of God; they say it is the wrath that has come. We have the rapture of the church (now in heaven) with our Lord. Yeshua is in heaven with His saints after the visit to the earth in the clouds. Note: He has not yet returned to the earth to reign for 1000 years. These verses support M2. M1 not supported.

 

 

(Rev 7:9 [KJV])

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;

 

(Rev 7:10 [KJV])

And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.

 

(Rev 7:11 [KJV])

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,

 

(Rev 7:12 [KJV])

Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.

 

(Rev 7:13 [KJV])

And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?

 

(Rev 7:14 [KJV])

And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation (this is the great tribulation mentioned by Yeshua in Matthew 24; after the tribulation in those days), and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

 

(Rev 7:15 [KJV])

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.

 

(Rev 7:16 [KJV])

They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.

 

(Rev 7:17 [KJV])

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.

Revelation repeats itself

 

If you read revelation carefully you will notice the book repeats events from a different perspective.  Here we have mention of cloud (clue) and on it was the Son of man (Yeshua). Look at what He does; He reaps the earth (His elect is taken out – rapture).

 

(Rev 14:14 [KJV])

And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.

 

(Rev 14:15 [KJV])

And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.

 

(Rev 14:16 [KJV])

And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.

----   ----  ----

Now look at what happens at the second reaping. The first reaping was by the Son of man (rapture of the elect) and the second reaping is the death of people in the wrath of God. These verses support M2. M1 not supported.

 

 

(Rev 14:17 [KJV])

And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.

 

(Rev 14:18 [KJV])

And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.

 

(Rev 14:19 [KJV])

And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.

 

(Rev 14:20 [KJV])

And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

Here we have the great multitude identified yet again in Rev 19. It is important to note that the gathering of these people is for the marriage supper of the Lamb.

 

 

 

(Rev 19:5 [KJV])

And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.

 

(Rev 19:6 [KJV])

And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

 

(Rev 19:7 [KJV])

Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

 

(Rev 19:8 [KJV])

And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

 

(Rev 19:9 [KJV])

And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

 

(Rev 19:10 [KJV])

And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

Conclusion:

The Day of the Lord (wrath of God) is marked by the signs in the sun, the moon and the stars. The rapture of the believers in Yeshua or the taking out of the elect from the earth is marked by the Son of man coming in the clouds and this occurs at or just after the signs in the sky (sun, moon and stars).

During the outpouring of the wrath of God there will be no believers to be saved. All that are left on the earth will drink of their portion of wrath for their rebellion against God. The period will be utter darkness upon the earth until the physical return of our Massiah on the Mount of Olives.

 

(Acts 1:10-11 [KJV])

And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men 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.

 

----   ----  ----

 

TTGM: May the Spirit of God reveal the answers to the following three questions.

 

1.       In Yeshua’s discourse to the hearers (Matthew 24 and Mark), he mentioned “in those days”. Where can it be shown that those days spoken to the elect (saints) do not include the Great Tribulation period? (see part 3 of this study)

 

2.       If the rapture of the church is before God’s wrath as shown in M1 (before the “great tribulation”), how can the rapture be after the signs that mark the beginning of God’s wrath (after the sun, moon and stars turn dark)?

 

The signs of God’s wrath are described as starting here - first phase (Isa 13:10 & Joel 2:31).

(Matt 24:29 [KJV])

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:

 

The sign of Yeshua coming for His elect/people is after the sign of The Day of the Lord (wrath) – second phase.

(Matt 24:30 [KJV])

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.

 

(Matt 24:31 [KJV])

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.

 

TTGM Conclusion based on evidence: Based on our research, there will be a post-tribulation rapture of the believers and this is after The Day of the Lord begins (God’s wrath is unleashed). Model 2 (M2) is the model that can only represent the sequence of events as detailed in scripture. No, the pre-tribulation rapture dies on the vine in the face of the detailed evidence from scripture. M2 has full support from scripture.  

 

TTGM Summary:

In those days (all that Yeshua spoke about including the great tribulation), immediately after (tribulation of those days – Mat 24:29), the signs in the sky that mark the beginning of The Day of The Lord will be seen (Sun, moon and stars - Isa 13:10) and then the son of man will appear coming in clouds where every eye (every tribe - Rev 1:7) shall see Him. Yeshua will then remove His elect from the earth. They will be taken to the marriage super of the Lamb (Rev 19:7). After Yeshua takes His bride from the earth, the wrath of God begins as confirmed by the people still on the earth and trying to hide (Rev 6:17).

 

3.       If you still hold to model M1; after the rapture, will the marriage super of the Lamb be on hold until the “great tribulation saints arrive” or will it start without them?
