See, I believe Matthew 10 has both a "near" and a "far-future" fulfillment (not saying "double-fulfillment"!), but off the top of my head, I don't recall at which verse the demarcation is located (but I do believe that the "he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved" refers to the "far-future" part [speaking of the future trib-yrs/7-yrs/70th-Wk). A few passages I've already mentioned, do this same thing (split from "near" to "far-future")… and that the "ye" is a "proleptic 'ye'" (meaning, basically, "all those in the future, OF THE SAME CATEGORY"... and in this case, it is, "those wo whom the promised and prophesied EARTHLY Millennial Kingdom" was promised. [i.e. not to "the Church which is His body" (note: I do believe we will RETURN "WITH [G4862]" Him, but not as "subjects" of the kingdom)])
God offered the Messiah to the Jews, they rejected Him, and thus suffered their 'tribulation' in 70 ad.
God then offered the Christ to the world, the world is rejecting Him, so the world will suffer it's tribulation in the days to come.
