For many the Great Tribulation has begun: Egyptian Coptic Christians, Christians in Northern Nigeria, Iraq, Syria, Pakistan and India. They have already beaten, already in the Presence of the Lord. The Lord will avenge the blood of the Day of Wrath, as it is written:

Because it is right before God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you.
1 Thessalonians 1.6 RV60
I present a brief study of the Great Tribulation and the Coming of Christ to be His Church.

Bible used RV60, when another version is used will clarify promptly.

A. The Great Tribulation

1. Jesus speaks to his disciples
Mt. 24.1-2 / Mr.13.1-2 / Lc. 21.5-6
Jesus tells his disciples that all that "No stone will be left unturned". (The Disciples, his chosen). Here we must emphasize several points:
· Jesus made no difference between those who followed (them speak to them in parables) and the disciples to teach them all things (Mark 4.1-11).
· Beyond that each evangelist is writing to a defined audience (Mateo-Jews, Mark-Romans; Luke Gentiles, added 3 worldwide have known at the time, the figure is that Jesus spoke to everyone, including us ) the message they give is the same for everyone, as it reads Mr. 13.37 37 what I say to you, I would say to all: Watch! So it is not valid to use the argument that the entry into the tribulation of which Jesus speaks in mt.24 is only for the Jews, by the fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD (historicist) or the future fall of Jerusalem after the last Battle of Megido-

2. The disciples interested in the topic
// 24.3 Mt. Lk. 21.5 // Mr. 13.3
Marcos specify what the disciples who were interested in the subject, Peter, James, John and Andrew were. We can see that of the 12 chosen, only 4 were interested (25%) Likewise today only a small part of the Congregation is concerned with understanding the signs of the End Times and the Coming of the Lord.

3. False Christs
// MT.24.4-5 Mr. // 13.5 Lc.21.8
Jesus warned that false Christs.

4. Principle of pain
// Mt.24.7-8 Mr. // Luke 13.7-8. 9-11
Adding what it says each evangelist can list:
· Wars
· Earthquakes
· Famines
· Pestilences
· Terror

5. Great signs in Heaven
Jesus makes it clear that this is not the end, but an era of much pain and oppression (Principle of Dolores) is at the stage where we are now, you just have to read the newspaper and see all news listing.

6. The Apocalypse
// Mt.24.9-13 Mr. // Luke 13.9-13. 21.-19
Tribulation [1] The Tribulation is a state that happens to the Church of Christ by the action of the World (which is under the evil) which comes to the Name of the Lord:
"9 Then shall they deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. Mt. 24.9. God allows the Tribulation because the Church it is tested. Those who remain steadfast are strengthened and reach salvation:
9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satanás.10 not be afraid of what you are going to suffer. Behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give thee a crown of life. Ap. 2.9-10
Be faithful until death, that is if you kill and be saved (the "2nd Death) Salvation is not that nothing bad happens, but live eternally with Christ, and that all who believe in Jesus, but live die (Jn. 11.25). Jesus himself told the disciples wanted to know (Peter, James, John and Andrew) that would go through the Great Tribulation (Mt.24.21) that many would be dead and everyone hated because of His Name, "" 9 Then shall they deliver you up to tribulation , and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. . Mt. 24.9 "The Great Tribulation will be shortened because of the elect, that is those who believe in Him 22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved.; but for the elect's sake those days shall be acortados.Mt.24.22

7. The hate against Christians
// Mt.24.10 Mr.13.12
Christians will be delivered to martyrdom for their own family and friends.

8. The Apostasy
Mt.24.10, 24.12
Many fall away and the love of many a reference to apostasy, of which Paul speaks in 2 Thessalonians is cold. 2.3 A: "3 Let no man deceive you by any means; because it will not come unless the apostasy comes ... "

9. chance for Testimony
Mt. 24.13 // Mr. 13.11 // Lk. 21.13-15
Jesus shows his love for all and perfect justice that still use those who fall into the trial to testify to its judges.

10. The True Gospel
14 And this gospel of the kingdom in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end. This Gospel, which speaks of the final tribulation of the Church which will be provided to the Beast, Man of Evil (2 Thessalonians 2.3) to make war on the saints and to overcome them. (Rev. 13.7) out the saints imposing mark the Beast (verychip?) as a condition to work or operate in the market (Ap. 13.16-17).
The preaching of the gospel should be (this article) and not a gospel of prosperity, where "The Lord will never permit his wife to do some damage" when biblically tribulations (the church spent many) are evidence that believers can happen at some point the Way. You can make a racconto the Book of Acts and practically every chapter speaks of a tribulation of the early Church.

Other texts that speak of the Apocalypse
Revelation 13.7-10 In the LXX (Jerusalem Bible, Textual, NIV, KJV Contemporary) [2]
7. You are allowed to make war with the saints and to overcome them; He was granted power over every tribe, people, language and nation.
8. worship him all the inhabitants of the earth whose name is not enrolled, since the creation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb slain.
9. He who has ears, let him hear.
10. "He that jail, prison has to go; which must die by the sword, shall die by the sword. "Here is the patience and the faith of the saints is required. Jerusalem Bible. Compare this text message to Smyrna and is entirely consistent: "Behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give thee a crown of life. Ap. 2.9-10

B. The Coming of the Son of Man and the Day of God's Wrath.

Mt. 24. 29-51 // Mr. // Lk 13.24-37. 21.25-36; 17.25-36; 12.41-48
  1 Thessalonians 4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

2. James 5: 7-8: Therefore, brethren, be patient until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently until he receive the early and latter rain.
Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts; because the coming of the Lord draws near.

29 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 heaven shall be shaken.
21.25 Lucas adds: "... upon the earth distress of nations, confused at the roaring of the sea and the waves" in a clear reference to tsunamis, tidal waves and earthquakes.

Parallel Text Ap 6.12 -. 15
6:12 I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; 6:13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when shaken by a strong wind. 6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island was removed from its place. 6:15 And the kings of the earth, and the great, the rich, the captains, and the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 6:16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb;

Jesus says: "Immediately after the tribulation of those days ..." and presents the sign of the Blood Moon [3] is a reconfirmation of the prophecy of Joel 2.31. This is the sign of the coming of the Lord for His Church-the Rapto- which marks the end of the Tribulation * and the beginning of the Day of Wrath of the Lamb [4]. The church no longer be, which according to Paul in 2 Thess. 2.6 the church is what prevents the Man of Sin reach the splendor of his power.

Paul gives the same order as Jesus in the Synoptic:

1. arrive apostasy 2 Thess. 2.3
2. The demonstration of the Beast and the beginning of its operation (Ap. 13, the War on the Saints)
3. After the revelation of the Beast will require everyone to worship him if God cone.
The Christ will rapture the Church (Rapture) out of the Great Tribulation. After this comes the wrath of God upon all men who refused to believe in Christ and accept His salvation and also abused the Church:
Because it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; 2 Thess. 1.6
  "The great and terrible day of the Lord" or "The Day of Wrath of God" occurs after the Tribulation.

The sequence then is:
1. Great Tribulation (it is for the Church, as the world has no problems with the Beast, being all agree with what you ask them and longing worship: 8 And worshiped all the inhabitants of the earth whose names were not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Ap. 13.8
2. The 2nd Coming of Christ for his Church - the Rapture, which marks the end of the tribulation for the Church.
3. The Wrath of God and the End of Time.

The study of the Bible respecting the sequence and exegesis, obvious that the position of the Rapture of the pre-tribulation Church is false.

The Tribulation is for the Church
In order that no one be moved by these afflictions; for yourselves know that we are appointed. 1 Thess. 3.3
Hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 1 Thes. 5.6

The Wrath of God is for unbelievers.
... Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved; so they always fill up the measure of their sins; but the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost. 1 Thess. 2.16

Time is running out, if you are not yet a relationship with Christ, now is the time. Accept His salvation, admit as Lord and Savior. Get rid of the Day of Wrath of the Lord.

[2] In the RV (60.95) King James versions and others translate the passage of the Textus Receptus have
10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity; if anyone kills with the sword, with the sword must be killed. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. Note the difference, it is preferable translation of the LXX, because it is based in the Vatican Codex dating from 400 AD while you Textus Receptus is a late manuscript of low quality (1300 AD).
