I think sometimes we get caught up in certain aspect of the great tribulation that we overlook other aspects. For instance, we emphasize how believers will be persecuted, put to death, perhaps denied food (?), but what about other portions of these same passages? For instance, let's start with Luke 17:20-37. Jesus talks about the unchanging nature of the people of this world. He points to the days of Noah and draws a parallel. Just like in Noah's days, those people carried on just like they always had. They kept getting married, they kept having children, they kepts having feasts, building houses, selling merchandise, and then when the flood came, they were taken by surprise. They had no idea this worldwide judgment was coming. So from one perspective, yes, certain events will transpire that will make this world a crazy place for a while. However, in another sense, the world will just keep on functioning as if no judgment were hanging over their heads.
There is persecution in the world now. Does this mean that believers and non-believers do not coexist?
Believers and non-believers will continue to go to work together, cohabitate with each other, attend the same functions
So, if I can just speak the truth in love, Truth In Love, we should not let sensationalization eclipse other aspects of these prophecies. We can speculate what it might be like, there’s no harm in that. But let’s not overlook the fact that these same prophecies portray a world that just keeps on going, unaware of what is unfolding. Both aspects will be fulfilled shortly.
Perhaps the ones who were not taken in the rapture are rejected believers?
How will it be that a believer and and unbeliever will be sharing a bed together up to the rapture??
So....at the point of the rapture, believers will have been undergoing the great tribulation for a while now. Murder is rampant all over the globe and few believers will be alive towards the end.
Hmmm! Or the Inward man taken and the outward man left ....
