Have ever considered that maybe you do not know why ‘Great Tribulation’ happens?
If we read carefully the passages where this phrase is mentioned then we get a far more clear understanding of the cause.
There really is only one cause and that is ‘Lawlessness’
Look at the verse here:
Mat 24:21 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.
But previous to this Yahshua pointed out that on account of false prophets and false teachers teaching lawlessness which is the cause of great deception, on account of this, ‘Great Tribulation’ happens.
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
So clearly the cause is ‘Lawlessness.’ But whose law is being ignored or rejected?
In Proverbs it is written that ‘He who condemns the innocent and acquits the guilty, both are an abomination to YHVH.’
How tragic that the scene between Yahshua and Barabbas is played out again today. Only now it is between Yahshua and Paul and again Yahshua and His teachings are rejected in favor of Paul and his doctrine of lawlessness.
Which makes it almost laughable that Christians could begin to consider something like a pre-trib rapture, when their very religion of Pauline Lawlessness is the cause of that very tribulation.
So ask yourself this ‘Does YHVH rescue His enemies? Yet while Christians remain lawless this is exactly what they are and what they expect.
Has anyone told them, that they who reject the Law of YHVH are in fact the enemies of YHVH?
In Rev 2:22 Yahshua says ‘Behold I will cast her (Christianity) into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into Great Tribulation, EXCEPT they repent of their deeds.
So here we see again the only escape out of great tribulation is ‘REPENTANCE’ not rapture. Repentance from what? Lawlessness which is adultery.
Rev 7:14 ‘….These are they which came out of Great Tribulation, and have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
White Robes are the ‘Righteous deeds of the Saints.’ Folks this is a picture of the Fear of YHVH’ type repentance. An utter all or nothing turning back to YHVH. Previously they had a dead faith, i.e no works of righteousness.
So it also perfectly clear that Rev 7:14 is not a picture of dead people in heaven but rather people whose feet are on planet earth.
When they repented they came out of the Great Tribulation. Pure and simple.
