What About the Remnant? (The rest of the Jews)

There will be two groups of Jews here on earth during the tribulation period (the 70th week of Daniel). The first group are the 144,000 males of Revelation 7, plus their wives or wives to be. The second group is called the Remnant and are referred to in Revelation chapter 12, verse 17. These are called the rest in the New King James Version.

The devil and his christ, the Antichrist, cannot kill the 144,000 of Revelation 7, or their wives or wives to be, but they do kill a large portion of the Remnant. The devil himself, when he realizes that he cannot hurt the 144,000 of Revelation 7 and their wives or wives to be, then tries to kill the Remnant of her (the woman, Israel's) seed, the Jews, during the last 3½ years (Rev. 12: 17), especially when the 5th and 6th seals are being unleashed.

Although the devil tries to kill this Remnant he cannot kill the 144,000 of Revelation 7 even though he will try (Rev. 12: 16 - 17). Those killed (Jew and Gentile alike) will enter Heaven in chapter 7, verses 9 - 17. (Now, do not get the idea that this is the Church, the Bride of Christ. For she will have already entered Heaven in Revelation 4: 1.).

The Jews will not flee until the middle of the tribulation period and on into the second half of this 7 year period (Matt. 24: 15, 16 - 22, Dan. 9: 27). The Antichrist turns on them in the middle of that period (II Thes. 2: 4, Matt. 24: 15). He breaks the covenant that he had made with them (Dan. 9: 27). Jews flee for their lives into the wilderness. The 144,000, etc... will probably go to Petra, Jordan, and the Remnant of the women's seed, which is figurative for Israel, will hide wherever they can, but many of the "Remnant" (Rev. 12: 17) will be killed.

This will occur when the Antichrist sets up his image, the Abomination of Desolation, in the temple at Jerusalem and causes the temple sacrifice to stop. (See also Daniel 9: 27, 12: 11, Matthew 24: 15.). He tries to get the Jews to worship his image as he claims to be God (II Thes. 2: 4).

(By the way, the Antichrist, the false prophet, and the unsaved men/women who help them, will force people to worship the Antichrist and his image and receive the mark 666. Most of the people [basically men who accepted Jesus during this 7 year period] who do not respond to or do those things will be killed.).

Then many of the Remnant (Rev. 12: 17) of the woman's seed of Revelation 12 (the Jews) who are not part of the 144,000 of Revelation 7 will be killed. Revelation chapter 12 is referring to the same event as Matthew 24: 16 - 22, which takes place right in the start of the second half of the tribulation period.

A portion of the Jews are killed (martyred) for their faith according to Revelation 12: 17. But there will be Jews (Rev. 12: 17) and Gentiles (Rev. 6: 9 - 11, 20: 4) saved during the tribulation period, the 70th week of Daniel.

Some of the remnant (Rev. 12: 17) who fled in the middle of the tribulation period and on into the second half of the 70th week of Daniel will return to Israel and Jerusalem. They have to be there to fight in The War Against Jerusalem which takes place right before and right up to the time when Jesus returns in the Revelation/Second Coming.
