In fact there are a lot of points that should be considered also to make the soup so palatable as far as proofs for Post-Tribulation Rapture are concerned. For instance, it is an undeniable fact that Jesus Christ’s return will bring about rapture. That Christ’s kingdom for the saints in light should succeed the fourth beast’s kingdom which is going to end this world with 666 Era. As matter of fact what God revealed to Daniel concerning the four beasts gives clear picture of it. 

(22) "Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom. (23) Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. (24) And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. (25) And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. (26) But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. (27) And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him. (28) Hitherto is the end of the matter. As for me Daniel, my cogitations much troubled me, and my countenance changed in me: but I kept the matter in my heart.” DAN.7:22-28

In short the passage above shows that the only EVENT which should immediately precede Christ’s second coming is the fulfillment of the prophecy of the latter part of the fourth beast: So that Christ’s kingdom would take over from the fourth beast. This is why Apostle Paul also wrote that the day of the Lord would not come EXCEPT there come, a falling away FIRST: And after that the appearance of CHRIST, the King of kings would smash away the Son of perdition to bring all kingdoms of the earth to an end to fulfill the prophecy in DAN. 2:44,45.

(1)"Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, (2) That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. (3) Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; (4) Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. (5) Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? (6) And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. (7) For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. (8) And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:” 2THESS.2:1-8

In the above text there are some key names and phrases worthy of note. They are the "Son Of Perdition”, the "Man Of Sin,” "That Wicked,” "A Falling Away” and "Mystery Of Iniquity.” In real term the Man of Sin is the same as the Son of Perdition as well as That Wicked. That is to say this very person would lead the world into Sin which would finally land the world into Perdition (Destruction). Also the Mystery of iniquity best explains the falling away from the true faith in Jesus Christ which establishes a form of righteousness worthy of the Kingdom of God. Herein lies the main reason why God forewarned that no one should have anything to do with this Antichrist in whose era, iniquity or lawlessness would abound to lead masses into perdition.
Another reason to prove this Post-Tribulation Rapture is the fact that the sound of the very last Trumpet by the Archangel of God would bring about the rapture of the saints. Even what the Holy Spirit led the apostles to write confirms Christ’s sayings during His sermon on the mount concerning how He would send His Angels to sound the trumpet to gather His elect for rapture.

"In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” 1COR. 15:52

"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:” 1THESS. 4:16

"And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” Matt. 24:31

However this event of the blast of the trumpet is very identical with what will happen in the end time after the two Prophets that would be killed by the beast from the bottomless pit, have been raised back to life and also whisked away. These are the two Olive Trees God would send in this end time to turn the minds of the Israelites back to God, their Father in order to ensure mass salvation for them (ROM. 11:25,26). Don’t forget that the Lord’s Angel revealed to John at Patmos Island that seven Angels with seven trumpets have been prepared by God to sound the trumpets for God’s anger to be poured on the earth in this end time. So here, the sound of the seventh one being the ‘LAST TRUMP’ shall proclaim the overthrow of the earthly kingdoms which shall thereby be taken over by Christ’s kingdom.

"And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.” REV. 11:15

One most important clue to watch here is that the era of the two WITNESSES or Prophets must precede the reign of the antichrist with number ‘666’ where as the return of Christ must come immediately after the antichrist. This presupposes that rapture will be next to 666 which is the last event before Christ’s return, on the divine time table.

(3) "And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. (4) These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. (5) And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. (6) These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. (7) And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them (8) And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified………………….. (11) And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. (12) And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.” REV. 11:3-8,11,12

Again Revelation chapter 9 also proves that God’s elect would be on earth while the 666 beast and his collaborators would suffer God’s retribution by the locusts. This is because it is explicit that the tormenting locusts are to punish those without the seal of God on their forehead when the fifth trumpet sound. This implies that the living saints with God’s seal would be around but not tormented when God’s adversaries without the seal of God would be suffering the seven last plagues which the sound of the trumpets will bring about.

(1) "And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. 2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. 3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. 5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. 6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.” REV. 9:1-6

This passage above states that only those without the seal of God would be affected by that plague. It would be like the time God through Moses punished the Egyptians but spared the land of Goshen where the Israelites lived before their redemption took place.

(25) "And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field. (26) Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.” EX. 9:25,26

Since they saw the retribution of God against their enemies, (the Egyptians) we shall also see what would come upon the beastly kingdom with our naked eyes during the seven last plagues. In fact if one studies the book of Revelation very well it will be realized that the event of the seven trumpets that will end the mysteries of God, is synonymous with the seven last plagues. That is looking at the effects of the punishments and the purported areas to be affected in both cases no one should tell you that they are the same event. So if God is going to finish His mysteries with the punishments against His enemies in the sight of the righteous ones, then who are the people that should be raptured before the 666 comes to power? That is the big question everyone must ask in relation to the topic being discussed.

"But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.” REV. 10:7

For instance some of the plagues directly target the beastly kingdom and her collaborators or those who have the mark of the beast. Impliedly, it means those who by the grace of God might not receive the mark of the beast shall also be around but exempted when the plagues begin to affect the enemies of God. Just look at the following text:

(1)"And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. (2) And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image………………. (10) And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, (11) And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds. (12) And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. (13) And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. (14) For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. (15) Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. (16) And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. (17) And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.” REV. 16:1,2,10-17

I know this intrigue information I have just given you is not easy to understand, so I would like you to read it over again and know that the war of Armageddon that would be fought during the sixth plague would be between God’s people and the beast and his followers. So in short this also substantiate the point that the righteous ones would be around during such turbulent times and that rapture cannot precede 666 era; But rather it is after the three and an half year or forty-two months reign of the ‘666’ government that rapture would come to pass in order to take the righteous ones away.CONTINUE HERE
