What about the one year after marriage, stay at home and no fighting?

I am with you on parallels of Jewish wedding, but I wonder if the one year after marriage applies as well. Scripture says that after a Jewish wedding the groom is to stay with bride for one year. Is not to leave or go to war. Does that mean rapture will happen 1 yr before wrath starts?

Reply from Watchman Bob:

No, I don't think so. If the "honeymoon" year parallels anything in prophecy, it probably parallels the believers reigning with the Messiah in His millennial kingdom.
