MORNINGTIME 2899
 
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.  And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. (like today?) When ye therefore shall see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, (the man called the anti-christ) stand in the holy place, (the place of great honour in the new temple yet to be built) (whoso readeth, let him understand:) FOR THEN SHALL BE GREAT (Strong's # G3173) TRIBULATION (Strong's # G2347), such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. Matthew 24:4-5,11-12, 15,21. And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, THESE ARE THEY WHICH CAME OUT OF GREAT TRIBULATION, (again, Strong's # G3173 & G2347) and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.  Therefore are they BEFORE THE THRONE OF GOD, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne SHALL DWELL AMONG THEM. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. Revelation 7:13-17. Both of these be verses are talking about the same "Great Tribulation", and a great many Believers clothes in Robes of Holiness, Righteousness, and Purity, went THROUGH that Great Tribulation, and Christ dwells among THEM, in His Presence. Here's my question. If "tribulation", small or great, Purifies The Saints, then isn't tribulation a Glorious Way To Be Blessed? So what's a little tribulation among Believers if the end result is to Live WITH Christ, and, Be Blessed?
