Then those you are saying are guests are not the bride then also therefore not the church? Am I mis-reading what you are saying?
I see those saved during the 70th week as the guests to the wedding feast. There is the believing Jewish remnant, believers (probably most martyred), and then unbelievers who didn't take the mark. They aren't "out of luck"; they have different roles than the Bride. The believing Jewish remnant gain all the promises of God from the OT including the land of Israel with borders as promised and having God dwell among them. Believers will be serving in the Millennial Temple (I posted Scripture way back at the beginning of the thread for that one), and then anyone else will help populate the earth during the Millennial Reign.
(I was thinking/typing when you made your edit above )
In a scenario as you pose, believers are raptured ahead of the 7 yr tribulation, and anyone saved after that although saved is not a part of the church/bride. They would not be eternally wed to the bridegroom as they missed the ceremony?
Also a question - There is the believing Jewish remnant, believers (probably most martyred), and then unbelievers who didn't take the mark. As I read chapter 19, I dont really see a place for this. Rev 19:2 speaks of those martyred as being avenged and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand which takes place before the wedding feast is announced in verse 7. The feast is announced with a multitude (verse 1) in heaven which includes those He is avenging. No?
