The Bible appears to confirming that judgment beginning at God’s sanctuary is focusing on the start of the great tribulation. There, judgment was on the whole body inclusing the Elect. For them it was a time of chastening as they endured until the revalation of Christ (unsealing of the Bible). At which time God redeemed them (separation of wheat and tares).
