|Dan 2:34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were
of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.
Dan 2:35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became
like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them:
and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
Acts 7:48 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet,
2Cor 5:1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an
house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
Mark 14:58 We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will
build another made without hands.
1Cor 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
1Cor 3:17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple
1Cor 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of
God, and ye are not your own?
1Cor 6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
Dan 2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be
destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these
kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
Dan 2:45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake
in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what
shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.
Dan 7:27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be
given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions
shall serve and obey him.
Rev 7:13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and
whence came they?
Rev 7:14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great
tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
Rev 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife
hath made herself ready.
Rev 19:8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is
the righteousness of saints.(This is the rapture of the Church Rev 19:7-8)
Rev 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of
them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the
beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and
reigned with Christ a thousand years. (Dan 2:44)(Dan 7:27)
Rev 20:9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the
beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.(No mention of the Church)
Marriage of the Lamb:
In Rev 19:7-8 we see the marriage of the Lamb and that the Church has finally made herself ready
Luk 12:36 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that
when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.
Views from a pre-trib teacher that I found explaining Luke 12:36: "Read it closely. Did you notice the phrase
"return from the wedding"? What does that tell you? That one little phrase gives away the whole secret. You see,
if the wedding occurred before this return, then the rapture occurred before this return. A prior wedding
necessitates a prior coming. It's so simple. If this one verse does not set up a chronology, then my Bible is written
in riddles instead of plain words."
This person didn't read it closely - ...And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord... - If this is a pre-trib
rapture wedding that Jesus is returning from, then he just told them that after the wedding, he would return for
them thereby letting them know that they would have to endure the mark of the beast and face the anti-chirst.
If this is concerning a pre-trib situation then the following verses that go to the end of the chapter would be for a
post-trib person that got left behind.
Luk 12:37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you,
that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.
If we were to view this from a pre-trib perspective:
God would have two separate weddings - One for the pre-trib Church and one for the post-trib Church. The
problem with that is, it isn't found anywhere in the teachings of Jesus, the apostles or the prophets of the Old
Testament or the New Testament.
Daniel's 70 weeks for Jews only:
If the 70 weeks are for the Jews only, then that only leads to one conclusion - Dan 7:27 is a city filled by Jews
and not the Church.
