The tribulation will occur immediately after Jesus comes in the clouds to retrieve all His Saints (all believers). The tribulation will last 7 years and will end when Jesus comes to earth for the second time.
The Antichrist will demand worship. The tribulation period will be seven long years. Michael will stand up in the time of great distress like has never been seen before. The time of Jacob’s distress is great but he will be saved out of it. The tribulation will be centered in Israel but will be a worldwide event.
Antichrist will demand worship.
2 Thessalonians 2:4 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
Events of tribulation
Revelation 4 thru 18 (This is too many chapters to include here — you may read about the time of the tribulation in your favorite Christian bible).
Seven long years
Daniel 9:27 27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week;
But in the middle of the week
He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,
Even until the consummation, which is determined,
Is poured out on the desolate.”
(In God’s time frame one week is spoken of here as seven years)
Time of distress
Daniel 12:1 1 “At that time Michael shall stand up,
The great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people;
And there shall be a time of trouble,
Such as never was since there was a nation,
Even to that time.
And at that time your people shall be delivered,
Every one who is found written in the book.
(That book is Jesus’ “Book of Life”; everyone else will have to suffer the seven years of Tribulation or will have been killed during that time.)
Time of Jacob’s distress
Jeremiah 30:7 7 Alas! For that day is great, So that none is like it; And it is the time of Jacob’s trouble, But he shall be saved out of it.
Revelation 3:10 10 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.
What God what is repentant, humbled hearts that worship Him. He wants to be the God of their hearts and minds, and the center of their devotion.
God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?
Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.
