    Many try to divide these churches to one following the other. But it cannot be done.

    There is no fault found in Philadelphia. There is nothing but fault found with Laodicea.

    Philadelphia is the church on earth when the Rapture occurs.
    The trial is the Tribulation Period. It is upon all the inhabitants of the whole earth, not just parts of it.

    If you are on the earth, you will be tried.

    But, here they are promised they will not be tried.

    God does not put his own on trial. The Trib is from God, not Man.

    It says they will be "kept from" the trial. Kept from is "tereo ek" in the Greek. It means removal from the issue, place, etc.

    Clearly, it says removal from the whole earth.

    It is compared to such as the Flood.

    Noah and his family were in the Ark, which was lifted from the place of destruction, the land.

    They were removed from the place, the dry land, which was doomed to destruction, including all the animals, birds, etc.

    The life in the water and the water were not condemned. So being on top the water was being "kept from" the place of issue.

    On the other hand, Laodicea was told if they did not repent they would be "spit out."

    They will enter the Trib and be subject to the trial.

    It is easy to see both these churches have to coexist. The Bible is very clear some will be Raptured and others enter the Trib.

    Also very clear there is no Church on the earth during the Trib.

    Today we see the reality of all the commendations found in the prior five churches in operations. As well all the condemnations of the prior five.

    It has all come together. The Falling Away is rapidly expanding and the church of Philadelphia rapidly shrinking.

    All the other prophecies of the last day have come true or are coming true.

    As the Bible says, the generation that sees the restoration if Israel will see the Rapture.

    The restoration of Israel took place in 1948 correct?
