 “The Great Tribulation”

 

DURING THE TRIBULATION: 

 

6.  Holy Spirit is Removed from Earth.

 

2 Thessalonians 2:6-7 6 And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. 7 For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. 

 

3 ½ yrs into the Tribulation… The Holy Spirit goes Up to Heaven… and then the WRATH of God can come to earth… 

 

7.  Anti-Christ Wages War against Saints

 

Revelation 13:5–7 5 The beast was… to exercise its authority for forty-two months… 7 It was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribepeoplelanguage and nation. 8 All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast--all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world.

 

8. All Hell Breaks Loose on Earth. (Judgements: 7 Seals7 Bowls7 Trumpets

 

Revelation 6  -  Seven Seal Judgement: 

 

Red Horse – Revelation 6:4 4 Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make people kill each other(Interesting… But why would men want to kill each other?... Let’s Keep Reading…)

 

Black Horse – Revelation 6:5 5 Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand... 6 “Two pounds of wheat for a day’s wages, and six pounds of barley for a day’s wages…” 

 

Pale (Green) Horse – Revelation 6:8 8 Its rider was named Death… They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword(that’s War) famine (Food Shortage) and plague… (Pandemic)  

 

Revelation 6:12–14 12 There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black… the whole moon turned blood red, 13 and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. 14 …and every mountain and island was removed from its place.

 

Revelation 8 & 9 - Seven Trumpet Judgement

 

Revelation 8:7–12 7 …and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up. 8 …and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, 9 a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed. 10 …and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water—11 the name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter. 

 

Revelation 9:1–5 I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth… 3 And out of the smoke locusts came down on the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth. 4 They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads. 5 They were not allowed to kill them but only to torture them for five months. 

 

Revelation 16 - Seven Bowl Judgement 

1st angel - ugly and painful sores broke out on the people who had the mark of the beast (666). 2nd angel - the sea turned into blood like that of a dead man, and every living thing in the sea died. 3rd angel - the rivers and springs of water became blood. 4th angel - the sun was given power to scorch people with fire. They were seared by the intense heat and they cursed the name of God, who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent and glorify him. 5th angel - Men gnawed their tongues in agony and cursed the God of heaven because of their pains  and their sores, but they refused to repent of what they had done. 7th angel - a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since man has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake… the cities of the nations collapsed… From the sky huge hailstones of about a hundred pounds each fell upon men. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible. 

 

9. The Battle of Armageddon...

 

Revelation 16:12 “The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East.”       

The Prophet Muhammad said, “The Hour will not come to pass before the River Euphrates 

 

Dries up to Unveil the Mountain of Gold, for which people will Fight.”

 

Revelation 16:14-16 “And they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty… Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Har-Magedon. (Armageddon) 

 

Revelation 9:13–16 13 I heard a voice… “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” 15 And the four angels… were released to kill a third of mankind. 16 The number of the mounted troops was 200,000,000; I heard their number. 

 

17 The horses and riders I saw in my vision looked like this: Their breastplates were fiery reddark blue, and yellow as sulfur. 18 A third of mankind was killed… 20 The rest of mankind who were not killed… still did not repent… 21 of their murders, their magic arts (“pharmakeía”), their sexual immorality (“pornia”) or their thefts. (kléptō)

 

Revelation 19:14–15 14 The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. 15 Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations.

 

Revelation 14:20 20 …and blood flowed… rising as high as the horses’ bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia. (108miles).
