Summary:
Paul is very clear concerning this question. He breaks humanity into only
Two Groups and demonstrates that only one of these two groups will be in
the beginning Tribulation part of the final or 12th Day of the Lord. (The
beginning “Wrath or Tribulation Part” of the 12th Day of the Lord, the
Tribulation Period and Daniel’s 70th Week are three different names for
the same event.)

1Thes 5:1-10

Article Body:
Paul is very clear concerning this question. He breaks humanity into only
Two Groups and demonstrates that only one of these two groups will be in
the beginning Tribulation part of the final or 12th Day of the Lord. (The
beginning “Wrath or Tribulation Part” of the 12th Day of the Lord, the
Tribulation Period and Daniel’s 70th Week are three different names for
the same event.)

1Thes 5:1-10

1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I
write unto you.

2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a
thief in the night.

3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction
cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not
escape.

4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake
you as a thief.

5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are
not of the night, nor of darkness.

6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be
sober.
7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are
drunken in the night.

8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of
faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our
Lord Jesus Christ,
10Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live
together with him. (KJV)

Now here are the two groups. (1) Group One: Paul names this group the
“ye, you, we, and us group.” Obviously, Paul included himself in this
Group One.

Furthermore, all Christians are included in this "ye, you, we and us
group." None of those in this Group One will see even one minute of the
entire Tribulation period.

In addition, when Paul spoke of the absence of us Christians in the
beginning of the 12th Day of the Lord, he made it impossible to
arbitrarily designate part of the Tribulation as wrath and arbitrarily
declare part of it not wrath.

In other words, from the above Scriptures, it is obvious that the Group
One, in which Paul includes himself, will not be in any part of the
beginning (wrath part) of the 12th and Final Day of the Lord at all.

(2) Group Two: Paul names the other group the “they—them group." This
Group Two, the “they—them group," however, will in fact go into and
endure the entire “Wrath Part” of the 12 Day. This distinction between
these two groups is extremely important!

Why is this distinction between these two groups so important? Because,
according to the Scriptures above, only one group will be in the
beginning wrath of the 12th and final Day of the Lord.

According to the Scriptures above, which of these two groups will be in
it? Not Paul’s group! Since we are included in the group with Paul and
all Christians, we will not be in it either. The beginning point of the
12th and Final Day of the Lord will come on Group Two as a thief in the
night, but not on Group One.

Since no thief gives warning signs, Group One will not be   in the
beginning tribulation period or we to would be caught off   guard by the
thief like character of the Final Day of the Lord. To say   we are
"forewarned" is moot because to warn us voids the concept   of the thief in
the night. Remember! No thief gives warning signs!

You can place the church in hell with as much Scriptural support as you
can place it anywhere in the 12th Day of the Lord—Tribulation—Daniel’s
70th Week.
