Tribulation is the name given to events that will take place during the end times on earth, and there will never be a time again in history to be compare with events that will unfold, the scriptures makes headlines clearer.
And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince who stands for the children of your people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time your people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. Daniel 12:1
Bringing up the rear, the pale horse of death begins to unleash a tremendous run down the slope to Hades. But it will not take him to the winner’s enclosure, for death will be vanquishing after the totality of martyrs have been reached under the alter.
The second 3 and 1/2 years of Daniel’s 70th week consists of the persecution, of the faithful by the Antichrist, the rapture of the remaining Christians, and God’s wrath on the Earth.The 3-½ years Tribulation is seen in the book of Revelation from seven perspectives.
How the Tribulation Begins? Can it start this year? In the big picture of things it is important to have some understanding about coming events, but your salvation is not dependent upon conditions of the world, it depends upon your faith and belief in the almighty, by accepting Jesus as Lord and personal savior.
This topic about the great tribulation is central to our understanding if we are going to grasp Bible prophecy.When Satan’ unleash wrath against God’s chosen people, Jew first, then anyone with the testimony of Christ. Since the great tribulation starts as the result of Satan’s wrath, we can also see that it surely will end at Armageddon, when Christ ends the rule of the antichrist.
We will see all kind of signs in the heavens, upon earth, in the sea and beneath the earth, take a look around, and be familiar with what’s going on, because it may get worse before it gets better.
Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since man has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake.
The Great Tribulation will begin suddenly. It will begin with a global earthquake that effectively disrupts the activities of the whole world. (Revelation 8:5) God has a few things to say to the human race, and He intends to arrest the attention of the world with a massive earthquake that literally stops everything and everyone in their tracks.
The sudden cessation of life as we know it will force everyone to stop and wonder what is going on. This coming earthquake is particularly interesting because geologists theorized a “global earthquake” was physically impossible until the early 1990’s.
Now, physical evidence is proving that Earth’s tectonic plates go much deeper into the core of Earth than previously thought, and this information has caused geoscientists to change their thinking. The book of Revelation predicts there will be a total of four global earthquakes.
Could the earthquakes we have seen recently in Japan, be signs of the coming tribulation?
(Revelation 8:5; 11:13; 11:19; 16:18) These earthquakes will increasingly rip up the surface of the world, and the infrastructures of travel, communication and manufacturing will collapse during the Great Tribulation. These earthquakes have no equal in recorded history.
Each earthquake will have greater strength than the one before it. The final earthquake will be so violent that it will literally move all of the mountains and islands from their places. (Revelation 16:20; 6:14)
