The Post Tribulation / Pre-Wrath Rapture of the Church

Just another weblog

The rapture of the church takes place just as the seventh trumpet sounds




Diagram showing the three groups of people who will be on earth during the great tribulation:  The Saints (Born Again believers), The Gentiles (Pagans) and the Woman (Israel).

The 144000 taken from the 12 tribes of Israel are intimately related to the Woman in Revelation chapter 12.

The 1260 days that the Dragon pursues the Woman (time times and half a time) is the same 1260 days that the 2 witnesses prophesy.  This also corresponds to the 42 months that the saints are persecuted and the 42 months that the Gentiles trample Jerusalem.

The Trumpets sound at the same time the seals are opened with the seventh seal being simultaneous with the seventh trumpet.

The Church is Raptured at the end of the 1260 day Great Tribulation

God then pours out his wrath on the Nations who are left behind.  The seven bowls of God’s wrath are poured out in the next 75 days – this is the third woe which is part of the seventh trumpet.

The 144000 from the 12 tribes of Israel are also sealed and protected during this time.

Christ will lead an army of believers to strike down the Nations and defeat the Beast and the False Prophet.  (Rev 19)

God will separate the sheep from the Goats during the 75 days that follow the rapture of the Church.

The 144000 Jews from the 12 tribes of Israel are sealed before the 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 or the 6th and the 7th seals.
