A reader recently mentioned the idea of a “mid-trib rapture”. Honestly, according to Scripture, there is no such thing as "pre-trib” or “mid-trib rapture” – or even a "seven year tribulation." From what I can tell, that seven-year period mentioned in Daniel is the period after the peace treaty is signed with Israel.
According to the Scriptures Yeshua will return exactly seven years after the Antichrist (whoever that turns out to be) signs a seven-year treaty with Israel. In the meantime, we are and will continue to experience "tribulations" around the world. The disasters are coming faster and faster. The Bible tells us that, in the end times, there will be so many that we can't even recover from one disaster before the next one hits....
Daniel 9: 26 Then, after the sixty-two weeks, Mashiach will be cut off and have nothing. The people of a prince yet to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary, but his end will come with a flood, and desolations are decreed until the war is over. 27 He will make a strong covenant with leaders for one week [of years]. For half of the week he will put a stop to the sacrifice and the grain offering. On the wing of detestable things the desolator will come and continue until the already decreed destruction is poured out on the desolator." (CJB)
The day we hear of someone making a seven-year peace treaty with Israel, we'll be able to count exactly seven years until Y'shua's return!
(As a side note, although the Bible does refer to the "antichrist" as a "he" - this may or may not be a man; it may simply be the antichrist SYSTEM of the world. The exact meaning of "antichrist" will be completely revealed as time goes by.)
Never before has the world seen the accumulation of events as we have today! Although no one knows the EXACT day nor the hour that Messiah will return (although the next mo’ed/festival to be fulfilled by Y’shua IS Yom Teruah/Trumpets, when YHWH calls His people home), no generation has had as many signs of the times as OUR generation. We have more reason to believe that Yeshua could come in our lifetime than any other generation before us….
