Will People be Saved during the Tribulation Period?
(Acts 2) “… the sun will be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood (the tribulation) before that great and notable day of the Lord (His second coming) that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved…”
Thankfully, the answer to this crucial question is of course yes and thanks be to God that it is. The Tribulation Period will be a horrific time and to think that all of the Gentiles if killed, would go straight to hell, is a difficult enough thought to bear. God, as He always does, uses His Word to reassure, that He’s not finished with us, the non-Jewish believers. The first evidence comes at the beginning of the book of Acts, straight after the earthly ministry of Christ and at the beginning of His heavenly ministry. Peter stood up and declared the revelations of God in quite possibly, the most famous sermon of all time and contained within that teaching (in the above verses), he touched on the subject of the Tribulation, which Jesus spoke of many times.
Taken in context, Peter gives a very clear new testament revelation, concerning the fate of the Gentiles during the Tribulation. However the greater, comes in the book of Revelations. In Revelations 7, God takes a pause to outline His will concerning two peoples; the Israelites and the numberless multitude, the gentiles. He tells us that there’s a tribulation requirement, that 144,000 Israelites should be sealed to act as Tribulation Evangelists to the Gentiles, and that the non-Jews who will be saved in that time, will be numberless, showing that the Gentiles will be saved in the tribulation..
