Who ever gave me karma thank you but there will be a rapture it will just be after the tribulation Quoting: OhlongJohnson
tribulation.......a time of great hardship
This will begin at the midpoint of Daniel's 70th week. The man of evil, false prophet, and their followers will begin a severe persecution of first the Jews....and then the Gentile believers in Christ.
This will go on for approx. two years until God cuts it short (ends it).....otherwise no flesh would be saved.
Then the whole world will go dark for an unspecified period of time (6th Seal).
Then the 144,000 of Israel will be sealed from harm and the Gentile Christians will be caught up by angels.
Then God's wrath....the 7th Seal......lasting approx. one to two years......the final section of Daniel's 70th week.
There is no 7 Year "Tribulation Period" defined as such in Scripture......nor 3.5 year "Great Tribulation Period."
These are man made additions to Scripture and should not be used.
They will result in major errors in translating certain Scriptures that contain the word: tribulation.
By assigning 3.5 years or 7.0 years to it......you will come to incorrect conclusions.
tribulation.....time of great trouble......that's it.....the length is not specified.
