Now, the proof "No Second Death" in chapter 15 of the book and the section on "that rapture thing" on this site should (hopefully) convince you that if there is any "rapture" to be found in scripture it is of the whole elect and then only upon the last day. That, is after judgement and Christ will certainly sit for that!

There is no thousand year reign of Christ other than the grace and patience of God exercised over us all. It should be stated that this factor of 1000, which appears in the 144,000 sealed saints is not a calculation in the book, but is found of Peter to be the one (and only one) thing with which we should be familiar - that we should not be ignorant of it!

2Pe 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. (KJV)

Then I have found, most surprisingly, that the grace of God immediately segues to the judgement. Christ "comes as a thief" and only when you have not noticed something go missing (your chances spent as the time itself is that which He has stolen!).

So no, there is no scriptural evidence for anything but this, once it is realised that the "word of God" is become simply the requirements of the law with the breath of life of God's Holy Spirit not present within it (as a seven cycle acting in an octal), and that the angel on a white horse named so is clearly just the agent of virtue, defeating the operation of the beast in the kingdom of God, as under the restrainer. (The wrath also.)

Now, I am no preterist but a futurist and I state the great tribulation began just when Jesus stated it would, when ALL government began opposing the gospel, not with the Jews, but with the destruction of Jerusalem. Then began the election of grace under a broader paradigm (and not a "compatible" one as found in Judea). Under the opposition of a broader paradigm in Rome and its territories, tribulation began and the election proper started. (Great tribulation is then more stringent selection under a broader paradigm.)

So, with no rapture before or after tribulation (as there is no 1000 year "reign of repopulation" in Christ) there is now no conflict in the words of Christ: I challenge you to find a verse where He states otherwise. (Qualify it with the interpretation of my book first though!) Christ straightway brings judgement after a short sequence of the angel's circuit, two witnesses and a time of temptation where all are evaluated on how justified they "feel" using the dialectic to excuse their putting the Father to the test on His names, new or old.

The least will bring the end with the completion of the mystery of God, when there should be "time no longer". God, answering with a movement of heaven in "seven thunders" is in agreement with the angel, His own right hand.

We may be assured that there is no fictionalised "mark of the beast" (merely final judgement for those that fall foul of it) and there is a remnant of faith all the way on to the very end when Christ returns.

1Th 4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. (KJV)

There is a very real "mark", but it is very able to be repented of, as long as one can stand aside from the corrupt Church and have enough oil (doctrine) to last them as "wise virgins" until the arrival of the bridegroom. (Then the "mark" as simply a "scratch" would have healed from upon their hand(s).)
