Question: Let's look at this a little further. The Bible teaches us that Jesus will come back 'at Armageddon' with the saints. What is your explanation here? Also, I thought the marriage supper of the lamb was between the rapture and Armageddon. The Bible indicates there will be a 45 day period between the end of the tribulation and Armageddon.

Answer: The Bible teaches that Jesus will return 'immediately after the tribulation of those days' (Matthew 24:29-30). This passage also says that at this same time, 'the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light.' We believe that this is the time when the battle of Armageddon will break out. We do not know about a 45 day period between the end of tribulation and the battle of Armageddon. Perhaps you could explain and show us the Scriptures.

As far as the marriage supper of the Lamb, we cannot say for certain exactly when in the chronology it will happen. It may simply be a metaphor for the beginning of our eternal union with Jesus Christ. After all, Paul wrote concerning the rapture, 'Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord' (1 Thessalonians 4:17). This sound like the beginning of an eternal marital union.
