Gary Stearman doesn't agree with anything I am about to tell you. These words are in response to his Sept. 24, 2010 Two Trumpets broadcast.
"And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night" (Rev. 12.10).
This is during the Tribulation. Denying the martyrdom of the saints during the Tribulation is just wrong. Don't accuse the brethren of coming under the wrath of God because Christians are in the Tribulation.
"Because thou didst keep the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of trial, that [hour] which is to come upon the whole world, to try them that dwell upon the earth" (Rev. 3.10). This is an if/then conditional statement. Do all Christians do this? No. So most Christians will pass through the time of testing with about 1/7th of believers alive at the First Rapture to be raptured before the Tribulation as suggested by the fact only the Philadelphia of the 7 churches was an overcomer church.
The 7th Trumpet Rapture is after 42 months + 5 months + 13 months after the Tribulation commences. This last trump, the trump of God, takes place before the last 24 months of the bowls which are specifically the wrath we are told in Revelation. The 7th trumpet rapture follows after the first rapture by 60 months. Here we see in Revelation 11 those in in the air at the last trumpet: "And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying..." (v.15). This multitude are the raptured saints from the First Rapture as well as those raptured as martyrs during the Tribulation 3.5 days after they go to rest, and the raptured saints at the last trumpet or trump of God: 2nd of Gary's 2 trumpets.
Prophecy in the News has to stop teaching falsely otherwise they will be cohorts in a great deception surrounding the timing of the rapture to deceive many.

Thessalonians 1.10 “The wrath to come” - Pretribulation onlyists say this is the Great Tribulation. Since the Lord Jesus will deliver us from the wrath to come, we must be raptured before the Great Tribulation. Also, 1 Thessalonians 5.9 “For God appointed us not unto wrath” - Once again this “wrath” has reference to the Great Tribulation. Let me say, though, that such an interpretation of “wrath” here as being the Great Tribulation is incorrect. How do we know that this wrath must necessarily be the wrath in the Great Tribulation? And even if it were granted that it is, such an interpretation of this word “wrath” would still be unreasonable because the Great Tribulation, on the one hand, is God’s punishment and wrath coming upon the unbelievers, and on the other hand is Satan’s attack and wrath descending on the believers. When Satan assaults the believers, the latter enter into the experience of the Great Tribulation but do not come under the wrath of God.
1 Thess. 5.8 says "But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation."
Now if you are a Christian and you don't fulfill this condition do you really think you are going to be received at the first rapture? God has afforded you the salvation of the first rapture, but if you lie on a bed of fornication you surely will pass through the time of testing to only be raptured at the 7th trumpet or as a martyr 3.5 days after you go to rest.
The martyrdom of the saints won't take place? "That they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they [were], should be fulfilled" (Rev. 6.10) 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." (Rev. 20.4)
The Feast of Trumpets, Shofars, will take place Sept. 14, 2015, but won't you be surprised when you see several million people disappeared. If you had realized this was just a partial rapture of readiness, rather than the whole Church, you might have not blamed the saints day and night (Rev. 12.10) when this occurs. Great deception has come upon Gary Stearman and J. R. Church who obviously will never repent. Would you thus also deny it is the Tribulation when it is occurring because if it was, you would have been included in the first rapture? You will be in a most perplexed state on Sept. 14, 2015, the Feast of Trumpets. Who is to say you won't take the mark of the beast as well?
Some argue that according to I Thessalonians 4.15, the living “shall in no wise precede them who are fallen asleep” -The dead are resurrected at the seventh trumpet; and so timewise, rapture occurs after the Tribulation. Now if there is a first rapture, it will have to take place before the resurrection of the dead. But since this verse distinctly says “shall in no wise,” how then can rapture take place twice [two trumpets]? Let me say in reply that it is most precious and significant to find in both verse 15 and verse 17 the qualifying clauses “we that are alive, that are left” - Now to be alive is obviously to be left on earth; why, then, is there this apparent unnecessary repetition? Because it implies that there are people who though alive yet have already gone ahead (that is, raptured) and therefore are no longer left on earth.
Would Paul enlist himself among this class of people who are alive and are left? Not at all. He uses the word “we” only because he is speaking at that moment of writing, and the proof of this is that since Paul no longer lives today, he cannot be numbered among those who are left on earth. Our summary conclusion to all this is that the third school of interpretation seems to be the correct one - that is to say, that one group of believers will be raptured before the Tribulation while another group of believers will go through the Tribulation and be raptured afterwards (at the start of the bowls, the start of the 7th trumpet, with 24 months left to the Tribulation to unfold).
1 Corinthians 15.50-55; 1 Thessalonians 4.16-17. The first passage dwells on resurrection and change; the second deals with resurrection and rapture. These two are parallel passages. All students of the Bible agree that the events in both passages happen at the same time. Is there any intimation as to the actual time for these events? Indeed, there is. “At the last trump” (the 2nd of the two trumpets, or the 7th trumpet, however you want to look at it) indicates that the time must be after the Tribulation. The first school of interpretation insists that the blowing of the last trumpet occurs before the Tribulation, but its adherents have not a single Scripture verse to support their view. The last trumpet is sounded after the Tribulation; it is the last of the seven trumpets mentioned in the book of Revelation.
How absurd it would be if after the last trumpet had been sounded there would still remain seven more trumpets to be heard! It would be like having had the last son born, only to be followed by seven more sons. Someone contends that the “trump” here is the trump of the church, not that of the Tribulation. Where, then, is there recorded in the Scriptures anything said about the first trump of the church? Still others say that Paul merely borrows from the Roman military custom, that as soon as the last trumpet is blown the entire army marches away. Yet the Scriptures have not adopted this Roman military practice. This “trump” is the trump of God, not of the church. Without a doubt it is the last of the seven trumpets cited in the book of Revelation. Furthermore, according to Revelation 10.7, at the sounding of the seventh trumpet the mystery of God is finished - which mystery is the church.
