    Revelations, tribulation & rapture

    Hi I have been studying the book of revelation in perspective of post-tribulation idea from mat 24 and I believe revelations lines up with this idea.
    However I wanted to start this study too see with you if it's really like so.

    now I ask everyone also to stay on topic. if you wish discuss end times from your viewpoint please start another topic.

    this study is about end times tribulation, anti-christ and Jesus' return.
    (note not two returns or raptures but single..)

    This first part is rather lenghty can be ignored, it's just for comparison for the events in Revelations. (the verses more closely related to this topic are under the first section starting from "the mystery of God should be finished")

    - = Some notes about similarity of tribulation events = -
