Rapture after Tribulation

   If there is anything we need to understand about Prophecy, it's that Jesus doesn't come back until
AFTER the Tribulation and not before. We are not raptured until After the worst period of His-story,
and we therefore have to be prepared mentally and spiritually. So please go over this very basic of all
prophetic principles over and over again and from all scriptures in the Old Testament and New
Testament until it is ingrained in your heart. But for an introduction, let's go over the Lord's very own
words that absolutely state this from Mathew 24 of the Gospels. My comments will be in .....

Mathew 24:3   And as (Jesus) sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately,
saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy (2nd) Coming, and of the
end of the world?

Mat 24:4-8   And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many
shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and
rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not
yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and
pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. (Jesus is saying,
we have to be prepared for all these things because we have to go through them. Why because...)

Mat 24:9-11  Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all
nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall
hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, (including the rise of the
Anti-Christ himself) and
shall deceive many.  And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. (but our faith
and love for Him and others has to remain strong)  

Mat 24:13-14   But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this Gospel (this
prophecy) of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall
the end come. (and not before, because we have to reach all of the lost sheep of the house of spiritual
Israel before the Shepherd returns.)

Mat 24:15  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:- (So let's try to understand this timing and
as a visual help as we go along check the
Daniel Timeline. Why, because the setting up of the
Anti-Christ computer in the Temple at Jerusalem is the sign that the Tribulation of 1260 days has begun.

Revelation Timeline)

Mat 24:16   Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: (Yes, because seeing we have
Gathered by the Lord just prior to this, then we are told to flee together in a final End-Time Exodus
with our
Two Prophets leading us through the wilderness.)

Mat 24:21   For THEN shall be GREAT TRIBULATION  such as was not since the beginning of the
world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. (Yes, for when the Abomination of Desolations is set up, and
the financial religious MARK of the Beast in place, then the Anti-Christ will declare war on us and any
that don't take His MARK and then shall be Great Tribulation)

Mat 24:22   And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the
elect's sake those days shall be shortened. (Why because 'it is written' that these terrible time only lasts
1260 days, or three and a half years. For do notice that we, the elect are still here, and have been

Mat 24:23-26   Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there
shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, (Including the one and only Anti-Christ and His False
Prophet) and shall shew great signs and wonders; (SEE Revelation 13: 13) insomuch that, if it were
possible, they shall deceive the very elect. (But it isn't possible if we know His Prophetic Word
beforehand) Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the
desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; (or in the Holy of Holies) believe it not !!

Mat 24:27   For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the
(2nd) Coming of the Son of Man be.   

Mat 24:29-30  (For) Immediately AFTER the Tribulation of those days (exactly
1260 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: 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. (So when does the Lord return, He distinctly said to His disciples, AFTER
the Tribulation, and THEN He shall come in the CLOUDS.)

Mat 24:31   And He shall send his angels with a great sound of a Trumpet, (The 7th Trumpet of
Revelation. SEE Rev. 10: 7) and they shall gather together his Elect from the four winds, from one end
of heaven to the other. (whether they died in Old Testament Times or the New Testament Period or
during the Tribulation. Praise God !! For ....  In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last Trump:
for the (7th) Trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. I
Corinthinians 15:52)

And so if you want to meet Him in the air, just receive Him today, and accept His
SALVATION, receive
HOLY SPIRIT, and pray that you make it through the Tribulation until His Coming. For one life will
soon be past, and only what's done for Jesus will last.
