Are Christians raptured before the tribulation?
Notice in Revelation 6:1-2, the first seal of the tribulation begins.
But before that in Revelation 5:8-10, all Christians washed by the blood of Jesus Christ, made kings and priests and who will reign on the earth are already up in heaven.
They are called the 24 elders.
So, that means it’s not just 24 elders, these are all Christians.
However, some will argue that these are Christians who died in the past and are already up in heaven.
No, these are all Christians, because in Revelation 4:10, notice that these 24 elders receive their crowns.
How you get your crown is at the Judgment seat of Christ at 2 Timothy 4:8.
And 2 Corinthians 5:10 argues that all Christians must be up at the Judgment seat of Christ.
So, the Christians cannot go through the tribulation.
All of them must go through the Judgment seat of Christ to receive their crown and they are up in heaven before the first seal of the Tribulation begins.
