NIV – Revelation 7:9:
After this I looked, and there before me was a
great multitude that no one could count

There is a not complete answer in Revelation 7:14

These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have
washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb

And from my other question before

These are the souls who have been saved and are in Heaven
"spirits" of dead people , but "souls" of dead people

So, for the time being, with my own chronology:

  1. They experienced the great tribulation
  2. They survive the great tribulation, alive
  3. Then they die —> so John’s vision in Rev 7:9 is after they die.

My question is :
Who are they right after they survive the great tribulation ?
The Church (All Christian believers) ? But aren’t all the Christians raptured at once, alive ?

    The following verses explain who they are, Revelation 7:14–17.

    “These are those who have come out of the great tribulation…“

    This section of scripture shows the fruit that will be born even though the great tribulation occurs. It is characteristic of how revelation is laid out. It tells what’s going to happen, and then explains The details in later chapters.

    I believe these verses were put here to encourage the nominal believers to become genuine Saints during the great tribulation. They will be able to look at these verses, and be encouraged in their trial.

    These are definitely those who come to faith during the great tribulation, and who had missed the pre-tribulation Rapture.

      SO basically John Mushenhouse Duane L Burgess our deer friend and fellow missionary Neil Steven Lawrence is simply telling us including Michael Chauncey that during the tribulation some people who are left behind to their faith like Link Hudson Philip Williams J.D. King Gary Micheal Epping Anička Bubanová and some more will STILL have the chance to get saved into Jesus?

      Troy Day risky and painful, but yes, salvation is still possible. It requires dodging the mark of the beast!
