Bill Miller wrote:Jesus “Comes” (Parousia) only Once:
AFTER “Tribulation” (seals 1 –6), and BEFORE “wrath” (7th seal) per Rev. 6 and Mth. 24:5-31. The first 6 seals of “Tribulation” ‘caused’ by God’s permissive will was allowed by God; to encourage repentance prior to wrath and judgment.
Jesus then gathers His “elect” / "chosen" prior to wrath; Mth. 24:30-31 (Pre-Wrath Raptured); as Jesus Himself clearly states.
Jesus then continues to stay and deliver His Wrath; (7th seal), until Judgment has been delivered, and then to rule in His Millennial Kingdom 1,000 years in a "Year of Jubilee". (No coming and going)
This period completes the “Feasts Of The Lord” Feasts of Trumpets proclaiming the time to repent, unto the “Feast of Atonement” / Judgment, unto the “Year of Jubilee”.
Note: The period of “Tribulation” (Peirasmos & Thlupsis), during the first 6 seals were allowed by God through His permissive will to cause repentance; before His “wrath” and Judgment upon the unrepentant. I.e. Typical of warnings given by God in scripture to repent, before God unleashes His “over flowing fury” / wrath.
