All Those Left Behind - 6th. Seal (MA42)

Mat 24:30  "Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory."

Before Rapture there is prosperity, peace and safety (except for those rebellious Christians) throughout the whole world under the rule of the Antichrist as king and god. So why do the tribes of the earth mourn, when they see our Lord coming at Rapture?

Luke 21:25  “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory."
 
At Rapture all those in Jerusalem can hear the roaring of waves after the great earthquake affecting the whole world and they fear (having heard the gospel) the expected punishments for their disobedience to God.

Luke 17:35-37  "Two women will be grinding together: the one will be taken and the other left. Two men will be in the field: the one will be taken and the other left.” And they answered and said to Him, “Where, Lord?” So He said to them, “Wherever the body (carcass) is, there the eagles (vultures) will be gathered together.”

At Rapture as the elects are caught up to the Lord, half of all those left behind will be killed by the great earthquakes and the huge tsunamis.

Rev 6:15-17  And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”

But all those not killed will wish that they were killed in those earthquakes because they know that they will have to face the wrath of the Lamb.

Brethren, ensure that you are caught up at Rapture, since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you, and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, (2Thess 1:6-9)

What about the Israelites

Zech 2:10  “And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.

At Rapture when the Israelites, who had not bow down to worship the Antichrist, see Jesus coming in the clouds, they all will repent of their sins and unbelief. Then all Israel (remnant of only 144,000) will be saved and they will be sealed for protection during the period of wraths.

Rom 11:25-26a  For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved.
