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.

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.

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.

When Christ comes, the Church goes up and those who are left behind are separated into the Sheep and the Goats.

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.

God pours out his Wrath upon the Nations of the Earth for up to 75 days after rapturing the Church. The Battle of Armageddon may only last 45 days. After the 1335 days, the Seventh Trumpet is over and the Millennium starts. The contents of the Scroll, the Book of Life, will be known. “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will reign for ever and ever.”

Revelation 11:15-19

15The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said:

“The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ,

and he will reign for ever and ever.”

16And the twenty-four elders, who were seated on their thrones before God, fell on their faces and worshiped God, 17saying:

“We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty,

the One who is and who was,

because you have taken your great power

and have begun to reign.

18The nations were angry;

and your wrath has come.

The time has come for judging the dead,

and for rewarding your servants the prophets

and your saints and those who reverence your name,

both small and great—

and for destroying those who destroy the earth.”

19Then God’s temple in heaven was opened, and within his temple was seen the ark of his covenant. And there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, an earthquake and a great hailstorm.

The Church will be raptured at the end of the Great Tribulation leaving the Nations on Earth to suffer God’s Wrath.

The Church will be raptured at the end of the Great Tribulation leaving the Nations on Earth to suffer God's Wrath. Then Nations will be separated into the Sheep and the Goats according to how they treated God's people. The Sheep will receive an inherritance which was prepared for them at the Beginning of the World.

Then Nations will be separated into the Sheep and the Goats according to how they treated God’s people. The Sheep will receive an inherritance which was prepared for them at the Beginning of the World.

The Harvest of the Earth will take place at the same time as the First Resurrection at the Second Coming of Christ. This will occur at the end of the 1260 days of Tribulation. There will be a Wedding in Heaven and then Christ will return with an Army of Believers to Judge the Nations.

Christ will then reign with the believers in Heaven during the Millennium. The 1440000 Jews will repopulate the Earth during the Millennium along with the Sheep nations who survive Armageddon to fulfill Old Testament prophesy. Only Born Again believers go to Heaven; they decend to become part of the New Jerusalem in Eternity and will have authority over the Nations. While the Nations will have access to the Leaves of the Tree of Life, they will not get to enjoy it’s fruit which are only for believers. The Nations will remain separate from the New Jerusalem in Eternity but they will be able to bring their offerings into the New Jerusalem once a year. People who persecuted God’s people and persisted in doing Evil during the Great Tribulation will be the same people who accept the Mark of the Beast and will be thrown into the Lake of Fire in Eternity. The Sheep Nations who refuse the mark of the Beast and were kind to God’s people will continue as the Nations in Eternity if they are in the Lamb’s book of Life.
 
There will be an interval between the Rapture / First Resurrection and the Sheep and the Goat Judgement / Battle of Armageddon.  The rapture occurs at the End of the 1260 days and the Battle of Armageddon does not start till 1290 days and  is competed after 1335 days. This has simmilarities to Historic and Dispensational Premillennialism with significant differences: Christ will reign in Heaven during the Millennium and the main rapture of the Church occurs after the Great Tribulation but before God poors out his Wrath on the Nations who are left behind.
