Will Jesus Christ return before or after the "Great Tribulation"?


Transcript

A lot of Christians who were expecting to get raptured by the Lord in His second-coming before the Tribulation are going to get the shock of their lives because He’s not going to do it. He Himself said so. He says right here in the 29th verse as plain as day: Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven; and then shall all the tribes of the earth morn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. (Matthew 24:29, 30)

And again: And then shall He 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. (Matthew 24:31)

That’s when Jesus is going to come, after the Tribulation, it says it as plain as day in the 29th verse: Immediately after the tribulation of those days. He says: After the tribulation shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven. After the Tribulation then shall all the tribes of the earth morn. After the tribulation they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. After the Tribulation He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet and they shall gather together His elect.

That’s when Jesus is going to come back for His elect, to rapture His saints, to gather them together.
