THE TRIBULATION

A 7 YEAR PERIOD OF END TIME TROUBLES

REVELATION REVEALS THE RETAKING OF THE EARTH

 

THE DEED WAS GIVEN TO ADAM BY GOD (GEN 1:26-31) UNTIL HE LOST IT (GEN 3:17-19)

THE DEED SHOWS UP AGAIN IN REV 5. AS LONG AS ITS SEALED IT BELONGS TO SATAN

 

Jer 32:8

8              "Then Hanamel my uncle's son came to me in the court of the prison according to the word of the LORD, and said to me, 'Please buy my field that is in Anathoth, which is in the country of Benjamin; for the right of inheritance is yours, and the redemption yours; buy it for yourself.' Then I knew that this was the word of the LORD.

 

Jer 32:14-15

14            'Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: "Take these deeds, both this purchase deed which is sealed and this deed which is open, and put them in an earthen vessel, that they may last many days."

15            'For thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: "Houses and fields and vineyards shall be possessed again in this land."'

 

Rev 11:15

15            Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!"

 

Dan 7:27

27            Then the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey Him.'

 

THE PURPOSE OF THE PLAGUES: TO STRIKE HARD AT SATAN AND HIS KINGDOM= BOTH SPIRITUAL AND MATERIAL. THEY ALSO HURT THE EARTH SO THAT CLEANSING WILL BE ESSENTIAL IN ITS REDEMPTION.

 

IN REVELATION CHAPTERS 4-11 WE HAVE A VIEW AS SEEN FROM HEAVEN WITH THE SEAL & TRUMPET JUDGEMENTS

 

IN CHAPTERS 12-16 WE HAVE THE VIEW OF THE SAME PERIOD AS SEEN FROM EARTH WITH THE VIAL JUDGEMENTS

THERE IS ONLY A DIFFERENCE IN THE METHOD OF THE WAY IT IS PRESENTED. WHEN WE LOOK FROM HEAVEN, WE SEE EVERYTHING IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER, BUT WHEN IT IS SEEN FROM EARTH, IT IS A TOPICAL PRESENTATION USING MANY SYMBOLS.

 

MANY PEOPLE ARE SAVED DURING THE TIME OF THE FIRST 6 SEALS

Matt 24:14

14            "And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

 

 

CHAPTERS 17 & 18 SHOWS CONFLICTS BETWEEN EVIL AND GOOD, LEADING UP TO THE SECOND COMING

 

CHAPTER 19 REVEALS  OUR MARRIAGE IN HEAVEN AND OUR RETURN WITH CHRIST TO THE EARTH WHEN EVERY EYE SHALL SEE HIM, AND WHAT WE KNOW AS THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON.

 

CHAPTER 20 IS THE MILLENIAL REIGN

 

ISRAEL……………………

Jer 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.

 

Dan 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.

MICHAEL IS THE ANGEL TO THE JEWS…..HE IS MENTIONED 3 TIMES IN DANIEL( 10:13&21 AND 12:1), ONCE IN JUDE (V9)  AND ONCE IN REVELATION (12:7)

 

EZEKIEL SAYS THIS IS THE TIME THAT ISRAEL PASSES UNDER THE ROD…

Ezek 20:34-38

34            "I will bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you are scattered, with a mighty hand, with an outstretched arm, and with fury poured out.

35            "And I will bring you into the wilderness of the peoples, and there I will plead My case with you face to face.

36            "Just as I pleaded My case with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so I will plead My case with you," says the Lord GOD.

37            "I will make you pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant;

38            "I will purge the rebels from among you, and those who transgress against Me; I will bring them out of the country where they dwell, but they shall not enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the LORD.

 

 

 

ISRAEL WILL  BE THE MELTING POT (EZEK 22:18-22) AND ALSO

Zech 13:9

9              I will bring the one-third through the fire, will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, and I will answer them. I will say, 'This is My people'; and each one will say, 'The LORD is my God.'"

 

Matt 24:21-22

21            "For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.

22            "And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect's sake those days will be shortened.

 

Rev 12:13-17

13            Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child.

14            But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.

15            So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood.

16            But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth.

17            And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

 

 

 

 

 

THE CHURCH…………………………..

Rev 3:10-11

10                "Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from(OUT OF*) the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.

11                  "Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown..

* GREEK “EK”  SEE 2 PETER 2:9

 

Rev 13:7

7              It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.

THIS IS TRIBULATION SAINTS, NOT THE CHURCH. HE WILL NOT HAVE AUTHORITY OVER THE CHURCH. ROMANS 13 TELLS US TO SUBMIT TO GOVERNMENT AUTHORITY

 

Matt 16:18

18            "And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.

 

Col 1:18

18            And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.

 

Rom 8:38-39

38            For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,

39            nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

Ps 125:1-3

1              Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever.

2              As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds His people from this time forth and forever.

3              For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous, lest the righteous reach out their hands to iniquity.

 

I BELIEVE THERE WILL BE DEGREES OF PUNISHMENT AND REWARDS. MY REASON FOR THIS IS THE BOOKS…

 

Matt 12:36-37

36            "But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment.

37            "For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned."

 

Eccl 12:14

14            For God will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil.

 

Rom 2:16

16            in the day when God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, according to my gospel.

 

1 Cor 4:5

5                Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each one's praise will come from God.

 

Jude 1:15     "to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him."

 

 

.THERE ARE 4 BOOKS MENTIONED IN THE BIBLE…….

1. REV 5   THE DEED TO THE EARTH, ALSO IN REV 10:2 & 8-10 THE “LITTLE BOOK”

 

2.  THE BOOK OF LIFE..SEVERIAL TIMES

 

3.  THE BOOK OF THE WICKED WORKS

Rev 20:12

12            And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.

 

4.  THE BOOK OF RIGHTEOUS WORKS

 

Mal 3:16

16            Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD listened and heard them; so a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the LORD and who meditate on His name.

 

TRIBULATION SAINTS:

REV 7:9-14  MULTITUDES OF THEM, MANY WILL BE  MARTYRED REV 6:9-11

THEY ARE CALLED GODS’ ELECT

 

 

Rev 6:9-11

9              When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held.

10            And they cried with a loud voice, saying, "How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?"

11            Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed.

 

 

 

Matt 24:29-31

29                "Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

30            "Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

31            "And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

 

Luke 18:7-8

7              "And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them?

8              "I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?"
