Every day, our world grows a little colder, darker, and sinful. Jesus warned us in the parable of the fig tree, these are signs of the Last Days, which are the End Times. It is these signs that help us identify when the Tribulation will transpire.
Jesus told us, the Tribulation will bring a great time of trouble on the earth. It will be a time “not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be”. Christ made it clear, the Tribulation will be an unprecedented time of trouble for mankind, (Matthew 24:21).
So, what is the Tribulation, and why will it be so troublesome?
The Tribulation is the moment in time when Satan is cast from Heaven to earth, including his angels, (Revelation 12:7-9). This event will conclude the War in Heaven. Once on earth, Satan (Antichrist) and his angels will claim to be God and His angels, displaying great miracles in the sight of men, all to convince them that Satan is God, (2 Thessalonians 2:4, 8-9, Revelation 13:13-14).
The miracles and wonders of Satan will be so convincing, nearly the entire world will worship him, truly believing Satan to be God. This is when the world and most Christians will partake in the Great Apostasy, everyone, except for the Saints of Almighty God who are Sealed, (Revelation 7:1-4).
Nearly the entire world will worship Satan and accept his Mark of the Beast, believing it to be something righteous.
Yet, the Saints of God will recognize Satan as the false messiah, so they will not accept his Mark. This means, they will be unable to buy or sell within the Antichrist’s government, (Revelation 13:17). The Saints will essentially be the black sheep of society for refusing to worship the perceived Savior of the world.
As we move through the Tribulation, we come to the Midst of the Week, the center point of this great time of trouble.
This is when the Silence in Heaven begins.
This is when the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11 appear, alongside the Saints who are the 144,000. This will also include the multitude of Revelation 7. Together, they unite to provide a testimony for God against Satan, his angels, and those who have accepted him.
These great testimonies initiate the beginning stages of the collapse of Satan’s reign on earth, (Revelation 16:10). Doubt will begin to creep into the minds of men as they listen to the Two Witnesses provide their testimony.
As the Tribulation carries on, we come near to the conclusion of it. This is defined when Satan, the perceived God of the universe executes the Two Witnesses before the entire world, (Revelation 11:7).
This is a critical time element.
Within just 3 1/2 days, their spirits re-enter their bodies and they rise to their feet, (Revelation 11:11).
Moments later, Jesus Returns to earth with an army of Angels to cast Satan into the bottomless pit, (Revelation 11:15, 19:19-20, 20:1-3). The Tribulation has just come to a conclusion, and Jesus Christ will now reign as the Millennium begins…
