Yep, I agree there will be a big harvest and I’m greatly thankful. However, anyone on this side or the other side of the rapture who continues to reject Jesus going into the Great Tribulation is taking a big gamble which is the point. According to the scripture I quoted, why do they believe the lie? Verse 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, Verse 10 indicates that they have been presented the truth, but continue to reject it. If one won‘t accept Him now, what guarantee is there that one will in the midst of such deception and lying wonders during the Great Tribulation? So get saved now! This is the point I was trying to make, but by your response I made the point obviously very poorly.I think the scripture you quoted is talking about those who believe the lie, and that lie being satans claim he is god. Satan makes that claim at the mid point of the 7 year tribulation. We also know from Rev 7 and 20, that some will still be saved, even during the second half of the tribulation which is referred to as the great tribulation. Finally, we know many new believers from all nations will survive the entire 7 year tribulation and will be the sheep mentioned below in the final Sheep and Goat judgement conducted by Jesus.
The biggest harvest ever of new believers will be during the tribulation, and most of those will come during the first half.
9 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, 10 and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” 11 All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying:
“Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom,
Thanksgiving and honor and power and might,
Be to our God forever and ever.
13 Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?”
14 And I said to him, ”Sir, you know.”
So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
31 “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. 33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdomprepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;36 I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’
