The three main Groups on Earth during the Great Tribulation

This diagram illustrates the three main groups who will be on Earth during the Great Tribulation:

  1. The Woman (Israel)
  2. The Saints (The Christians)
  3. The Gentiles / Nations (Pagans)

The Woman (Israel) gave birth to a male child (Jesus) who was snatched up to heaven. The Woman, pursued by a dragon, fled to the wilderness where she was taken care of for 1260 days (time, times and half a time).   The dragon was enraged at the Woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring; those who keep God’s commands and hold fast to their testimony about Jesus.  (Revelation Chapter 12)

God’s Holy People (The Saints) are persecuted for 42 months (1260 days) by the Beast who had  been given power to make war against them and conquer them by the dragon.

“If anyone is to go into captivity, into captivity they will go. If anyone is to be killed with the sword, with the sword they will be killed.” This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of God’s people.   (Revelation Chapter 13)

The Gentiles / Nations (Pagans) are those who do not believe.  Most will worship the Beast and accept his mark.  They will be his intruments for waging war against the saints.  They will trample the Holy City for 42 months. (Revelation 11: 2)  Some will refuse to worship the beast and will help the Christians.  (Matthew Chapter 25)

The Church will be raptured after 1260 days when the seventh trumpet sounds.  This coincides with the seventh seal being opened revealing who is in the Little Scroll (the Book of Life).

The 144000 taken from the 12 tribes of Israel were sealed and protected during the 1260 days of the Great Tribulation.    They are intimately related to the Woman who was pursued by the Dragon in Revelation chapter 12.  They will also be protected from God’s Wrath which is about to be poured out as the seventh trumpet sounds.

God will pour out the seven bowls of his wrath on the Nations of the Earth in the 75 days that follow the rapture of the church.

God will separate the Nations into the Sheep (who were kind to God’s people) and the Goats (who persecuted God’s people).

Then the Millennium will begin

The 144000 Jews from the 12 tribes of Israel are sealed before the Great Tribulation starts

Revelation 7:1-4

After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree.   Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God. He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea: “Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.”  Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel.

The sealing of the 144000 is mentioned in the interlude between the opening of the six and the seventh seal.   The four angels are instructed not to harm the land or the sea or the trees until a seal was put on the servants of God.

The 144000 are most like the Woman in Revelation 12 that is pursued by the dragon for 1260 days or times time and half a time.  The Woman is taken to a place in the wilderness where she is protected for the duration of the Great Tribulation.  It, therefore, follows that the 144000 must have been sealed before the Great Tribulation starts.

As with the Gentiles who trampled the Holy City for 42 months and the two witnesses who prophesied for 1260 days, the 144000 are sealed and protected for 1260 days.  The point at which these events are mentioned is at their conclusion after 1260 days corresponding to the interludes between the 6th and the 7th trumpet and the 6th and the 7th seals.

Mankind is given a chance to repent (Revelation 9:20-21) even after the sixth trumpet (the second woe) [Revelation 11:14].

The Seven Bowls of God’s Wrath are the Third Woe. [Revelation 15:1] The Seven Bowls of God’s wrath are part of the Seventh Trumpet. [Revelation 8:13]

The Seven Bowls of God’s Wrath are poured out once the Church has been raptured. [Revelation 15 & 16] [c/w Revelation 19]

The overall structure of Revelation is Chronological

The Book of Revelation is largely Chronological althought the rapture of the Church is mentioned in several places.

The Church gets raptured when the Seventh Trumpet sounds [1Corinthians 15:52, Revelation 7:9-8:1 & Revelation 10:7 & 11:15]

Revelation0

March 30, 2015

When God reaches Seven, it is all over. [Revelation 11:15]

When Christ comes, the Church goes up and those who are left behind are separated into the Sheep and the Goats.  This occurs after 1260 days of the Great Tribulation and corresponds to the Last Trumpet.

When Christ comes, the Church goes up and those who are left behind are separated into the Sheep and the Goats. This occurs after 1260 days of the Great Tribulation and corresponds to the Last Trumpet.

Have you ever given your children a “one, two, three count” when they are being naughty?   Sometimes parents may even count to ten and if the children do not stop their bad behavior by the time they get to “ten” then there are consequences.

When a Boxing Referee counts to three, if the boxer who is down does not get up by the third count then the match is over.

It is a bit like that with God.  Only God counts to seven (opening a seal and sounding a trumpet each time) and just to make it absolutely clear, God calls the last three Trumpets, Woes  (one, two and three).  [Revelation 8:13]

Even after the sixth trumpet / second woe, mankind has a chance to repent! [Revelation 9:20-21]

When God starts counting, mankind should take heed because if  he doesn’t, it will be “Game Over”.  [Revelation 11:15]

Throughout history, God has had to start counting, but fortunately, mankind came to his senses and repented of his evil.

There are many “antichrists” (with a little ‘a’) that have come throughout history (eg Hitler and Nero) and many tribulations, but there is one antichrist and one tribulation that is coming that is worse than any that have occurred previously in history;  “The Antichrist” and “The Great Tribulation”.

During the Great Tribulation, the Antichrist will torment God’s People for 1260 days and will seem to prevail over them.  Mankind (except for those who are watchful) will ignore God’s counting and the signs that accompany each count.  During this Great Tribulation, Mankind ignores God’s warnings and God reaches Seven.  It is Game Over for God for all Mankind.  A New Order will be established.  Those who persecuted God’s people will go to Hades,  Those who were kind to God’s people will be spared the second death but will never be part of the Bride of Christ, the New Jerusalem and will not eat of the fruit of the Tree of Life.  God’s people (the wheat)  will reign with him in Heaven over a select 144000 Jews and about 1.5 million pagans who survive Armageddon and were kind to God’s People.

End Time Prophesies in the Bible.   The Great Multitude of Believers in the Church will have to endure 1260 days of the Great Tribulation.  Only the 144000 First Fruits (followers of the Lamb) will escape the Tribulation.  The Church will be Raptured at the end of the 1260 days before God pours out his wrath upon the Nations.  The 144000 Jews who have been sealed will be protected from God's Wrath; they will become God's people on Earth during the Millennium.

4 types of people

SHEEPGOATS1

The Sheep and the Goats (the nations) are judged according to how they treated  God’s people “these little ones of mine” (the wheat) during the Great Tribulation.

What people  “do”  and what people “say” is closely linked to what people “think”.

What we “think” of “Jesus” will ultimately determine our destiny.

It is God who “Opens our Eyes” and enables us to see Him.

People can be divided into four groups according to how they regard Jesus

As soon as the Seventh Trumpet sounds, the Church is removed from the Earth (Wheat and Tares). God then pours out the Seven Bowls of His Wrath upon the Nations (Pagans/Gentiles) of the Earth who will be “Left Behind”.

The Church is Raptured in the Twinkling of an Eye at the Last Trumpet. As soon as the Seventh Trumpet sounds, the Church is removed from the Earth (Wheat and Tares). God then pours out the Seven Bowls of His Wrath upon the Nations (Pagans/Gentiles) of the Earth who will be “Left Behind”. The Seven Bowls of God’s wrath are the Third Woe and are part of the Seventh Trumpet. The Bowls are for the Nations not the Church. 144000 Jews will be Sealed and protected from His Wrath.
God will separate the Nations into the Sheep and the Goats according to how they treated God’s People.
Zechariah Ch14 tells us that there will be some Pagans who survive Armageddon and go on into the Millennium as the Nations on Earth (Millennial Nations). The pagans that survive Armageddon must be taken from among the Sheep Nations as the Goats will go to Hell. The Pagans who survive the Battle of Armageddon will accompany the 144000 Jews into the Millennium as a reward and to fulfill God’s Old Testament Prophesies to restore Israel. During the Millennium, the church will reign with Christ in Heaven.
When the Millennium is over, The Bride will descend from Heaven to become the New Jerusalem on the Earth. Pagans will be resurrected and judged at the Great White Throne. Those whose names are in the Lamb’s Book of Life will become the Nations in Eternity. Those whose names are not in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be thrown into the Lake of Fire which is the Second Death.

The Church will be harvested in the twinkling of an eye at the Last Trumpet (Seventh Trumpet).

The Church will be harvested in the twinkling of an eye at the Last Trumpet (Seventh Trumpet).

The Church will be harvested in the twinkling of an eye at the Last Trumpet (Seventh Trumpet). The true believers (Wheat) will go up to meet Christ in the clouds but not before the dead in Christ have been raised to be with Him too (The First Resurrection). False Christians will go to hell. The nations will be left on earth to suffer the bowls of God’s wrath. The nations will surround Jerusalem at the Battle of Armageddon. God will choose a select number of Jews from the 12 tribes of Israel (144000) and put a seal on them so they are protected from his Wrath.  (They will repopulate the Earth during the Millennium.)  Christ will then return with His army of redeemed saints (His warrior Bride) to strike down the Beast and the False Prophet and the Kings of the Earth and their armies comprised of people bearing the Mark of the Beast. Christ will separate the Nations into the Sheep (who were kind to God’s People) and the Goats (who persecuted God’s People). The Goats will go to Hell and the Sheep Nations will receive the inherritance which was prepared for them since the foundation of the World. (Namely to be the Nations during the Millennium and in Eternity). After all, there will be some pagans who survive the battle of Armageddon! (Zechariah Ch 14).  At the End of the Millennium, the Dead outside of Christ will be raised to be Judged at the Great White Thone.  If their names are not in the Lamb’s Book of Life, they will be thrown into the Lake of Fire.  It is not possible for  Pagans to be part of the New Jerusalem but they may get to be the Nations that surround the New Jerusalem if their names are in the Lamb’s book of Life.
