TRIBULATION!

Tribulation

For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” (Matthew 24:21)

There is tribulation all the time since the coming of the Holy Spirit until He is withdrawn, the same period of the last days, that is “there shall be wonders and signs in the heavens above and the earth below; fire and blood and vapour of smoke.” Then as above in Matthew 24:21, there was Great Tribulation during the first two centuries after the Ascension of Christ. Read it carefully you PREs that try to confuse the world for some ulterior reason. It speaks of time and “ever shall be” as the END has not yet come. {As Dr. Wolber of Ouachita Baptist would say, “Just let the Bible say what it wants to say.”}

This leads naturally to say that there are 3 in the Bible periods of tribulation: (1) Tribulation period that started with the Ascension of Christ {same time the Spirit came to the earth to take the place of Jesus and to convict of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment.}; (2) the Great Tribulation which lasted about two hundred years in the Roman Empire until the Emperor Constatine proclaimed Christianity as the religion of the Empire, same period of time of the history in Fox’s Book of Martyrs; and (3) the Final Tribulation which is where the PREs try to confuse us the most. The only real Bible problem, just forget about the PREs as Dr. Bert Dominy would say, is to determine the period of time when Tribulation passes into Final Tribulation.

Since tribulation according to Joel 2 and Acts 2:19 starting with fire and smoke and blood on the first day of Pentecost after the Ascension, that is when according to Acts 2:16,17, “this day are these things fulfilled in your eyes”, that is in the quote from Joel 2 “in the last days” **. And we notice in all the continuing disasters in the world like in New Orleans, like in New York, like in the increasing number of diasters and calamities in these present days, that there is much BLOOD, ALWAYS SEEMS TO BE VAPOR OF SMOKE EVEN IN FLOODS, AND ALSO MUCH FIRE EVEN IN FLOODS!

**NOTE: Yes I know the PREs of “that sort” so often mislead God’s people on the last days. It is one of their major confusions, fables if you would of “the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine” of II Timothy 4:3,4.

Even as we know that entropy as in the 2nd law of thermodynamics is a process of the universe running down in order, that is increasing a healthy rate in disorder, so Paul reminded us that the tribulation of the END will be like a woman in travail to deliver–in this case the travail of the old universe is to deliver a new universe: THE PAIN OR TRIBULATION GETS GREATER NEAR THE END OF DELIVERY, ALIAS SOME POINT IN TIME JUST PLAIN TRIBULATION WILL BECOME FINAL TRIBULATION.

That point of time in history is identified by Jesus in Matthew 24:29: Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken..”

Doomsday from NASA video!

The tribulation of those days would be the period of time required to gather all the nations together at Megiddo for the final battle of Armagaddeon, the same time in history of which Jesus speaks in the verse before, Matthew 24:28, where he tells you can know of the time when you look up in the sky and the vultures are gathering for the vast field of caracasses left for the battle–“For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.”

It is all over for this old heaven and old earth when you look up in the sky and see the sun darkened, the stars falling out of heaven, and the powers of gravitational attraction in the universe shaken. SO WE MUST CONSIDER THIS THE END OF THE FINAL TRIBULATION, AND BEGIN TO LOOK FOR THE BEGINNING, REALIZING THAT IT IS WELL UNDER WAY WHEN THE SUN AND MOON ARE DARKENED.

NOTE: Consitently this is called in Old and New Testaments as the Day of the LORD and Lord, and you will find that so in any passage where you see that the sun and moon are darkened. Since obviously in the Bible a “day” can be a period of time, we must consider that the Final Tribulation correlates with that period of day and days called the Day of the LORD and Lord. This gives us a clue for more insight from the Bible, not from the PREs of that sort, we have enough false insight from all their charts and timelines that they have tried to make money and fame from.

Key for understanding for “Those who have eyes to see and ears to hear” is the “THEN” of Matthew 24:23 which naturally continues in first century history after the verse 24:22 when the “days were shortened”; so in the nature of logic and natural flow and letting the Bible say what it wants to say, is that the events from Matthew 24:23 all the way up to the sun and moon darkened must naturally be considered as the FINAL TRIBULATION. Let us see what those are in order to see if we are now in the days of Final Tribulation.

Matthew 24:23-28

Begininning of the Final Tribulation

Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

NOTE: You can easy see the time of “secret chambers” of that period of history when the false doctrine of the secret rapture was revived, say with the time of Darby and Scofield. It has lately received a big revival with Tim LeHays Left behind novels and movies on the same.

For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.’

End of the Final Tribulation

Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not…

II. Now for Tribulation in the book of Revelation for we know all the gory of details of the blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke are there!

1. First, those martyrs of the first two centuries that cam out of the Great Tribulation.

“And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great

tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.” (Revelation &:14,15)

2. Tribulation that passes into Final Tribulation would have to include the famous 7s of Revelation, the seals, and the trumpets and the bowls.

2a. SEALS

(1). Rev. 6:2 1st seal conquers with a peace plan.

NOTE: Could easily correlate with peace after World War II.

(2). Rev.6:3-2nd Seal: Wars on earth

NOTE: Well, except for the final battle of Megiddo, this is from the time of Christ to now, the last days.

(3). Rev.6:5-3rd Seal: Worldwide economic trouble

NOTE: Surely, we must say that is now until the END.

(4). Rev.6:7-4th Seal: Death released. 1/4 of the worlds population to die by plagues, disease, and beasts of the earth.

NOTE: This is beginning to happen in the just plain tribulation of the last days except for the beasts of the earth. So this would have to include Tribultion passing into with death by beasts with Final Tribulation unless the beast are ISIS, then we are now now!

(5) Rev.6:9-5th Seal: Persecution and mass killing of God’s people worldwide, and primarily by ISIS and other world wide terrorits organizations, the “rising tide of the mystery of sin and lawlessness” proceeds from the tribulation of the last days to the Final Tribulation.

NOTE: Well, this is happening now!

(6) Rev.6:12-6th Seal: Massive earthquake wrath of God.

NOTE: The earth in travail is warming up for this great earthquake that will shake the whole earth; however for the one that no peoples or countries can miss, is also in the Final Tribulation.

(7). Rev.7:2-7th Seal: 144,000 are anointed to evangelize the earth

NOTE: Not all bad news during tribulation and final tribulation as some discrete number of earth’s people will evangelize for the shorly to be ushered in new FOREVER KINGDOM of Chirst on earth, same place where God will come to dwell among His new people.

2b. TRUMPETS

(1). Rev.8:7-1st Trumpet: Hail, fire, and blood. 1/3 all grass and trees burned up.

NOTE: Tribulation now warning up for the Final Tribulation of 1/3 of all trees and grass to be destroyed. Notice, you can identify final as with specific numbers.

(2) Rev.8:8 -2nd Trumpet: Great mountain hits sea. 1/3 all ocean becomes blood. 1/3 all sea life dies and 1/3 all ships destroyed.

FINAL TRIBULATION.

Rev.8:10-3rd Trumpet: Wormwood star hits earth. 1/3 all freshwater poisoned.

Rev.8:12-4th Trumpet: 1/3 of sun and moon darkened.

Rev.9:1-5th Trumpet: locust beasts that sting and torment men are loosed from the pit.

Rev.9:13-6th Trumpet: demons released and 200 million army kills 1/3 of the world’s population.

Glorious Days of the Sounding of the Seventh Trumpet

Revelation 10:7 and 11:15

But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of

this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and

ever.

2c. BOWLS

Rev.16:2-1st Bowl: Terrible and painful sores break out on all who worship beast.

Rev.16:3-2nd Bowl: Entire oceans becomes blood, the sea life dies.

Rev.16:4-3rd Bowl: Fresh water becomes blood, no more fresh drinking water.
