Is The Great Tribulation Of The End The Only One?

When Will The End Time Tribulation Start?

Question : When will the Tribulation start as you see in the Bible? Will be right in the middle of the Daniel's 70th week timeline or before the wrath of God starts to come? Please clear out my doubt. Thanks in advance.

Answer : Greetings! As you know that Tribulation is something that comes upon the wicked world to test all those people whose mind dwells on earth without God, and God has promised the believers that they will be raptured before it takes place (Rev 3:10). Daniel's 70th Week is the 7 year timeline that is left according to evaluation that we do from Daniel 9:25 where Seven Weeks [i.e Considering a Week to be 7 years, it is 7 multiplied by 7= 49 Years] and Sixty two Weeks [434 Years] has passed until Jesus came to Jerusalem more than two thousand years ago and fulfilled it perfectly to be cut of from earth to go to heaven after 62 Weeks (Dan 9:26; John 19:30). God's holy pause of His prophetic timeline for the end started once the Holy Messiah Jesus died fulfilling the 434 years timeline which is 434+49=483 years end. Then the Siege of Jerusalem in 70 AD was the decisive event of the First Jewish–Roman War. The Roman army, led by the future Emperor Titus, with Tiberius Julius Alexander as his second-in-command, besieged and conquered the city of Jerusalem, which had been occupied by its Jewish defenders in 66 AD has also been fulfillment of Daniel's prophecy (Dan 9:26).

Then the one Week [7 years] left to complete the total 480 years timeline for the end and fulfill the complete purpose of God as prophesied by Jeremiah and confirmed by Daniel the Prophet in the Old Testament and John the Revelator in the New Testament, will start with the Antichrist making a one Week covenant with many world countries regarding the right for the Jews to build a temple to sacrifice on the Holy Mount of Moriah in Jerusalem which is the most hotly contested pieces of real estate on earth (Dan 9:27; Jer 30:11; Rev 17:17). This is a profoundly sacred area to Christians, Jews, and Muslims. Sitting atop Mount Moriah today is the Temple Mount, a 37-acre tract of land where the Jewish temple once stood (Gen 22:2; 2 Sam 24:18, 21). Several important Islamic holy sites are there now, including the Dome of the Rock – a Muslim shrine built thirteen hundred years ago – and the Al-Aqsa Mosque which is also a fulfillment of the prophecy of Jesus (Luke 21:24).

So according to Daniel 9:27 "in the middle of the week [which is 3 1/2 years]," Antichrist will bring an end to the Jewish sacrifice because of seating himself in the Holiest place proclaiming Himself to be God as confirmed later by Jesus in the Gospels and by Apostle Paul in the New Testament (Matt 24:15; 2 Thess 2:3-4). From that time onwards Antichrist will start to bring his iron hand to make people around the world to take his seal on their hand or forehead to make them worship Satan who gave his authority to him and therefore make people to worship his image which he would later do under the guidance of the false prophet (Rev 13:4-5, 8, 11-17). Jesus clearly told that immediately after the abomination of desolation [which is Antichrist desecrating the temple by seating himself as god] happens, believers should flee Judea which is Jerusalem so that somewhere after that time on rapture will happen and they the believers will not be deceived to be caught by Antichrist and be beheaded if they are found to be believers which is the starting point of end time tribulation (Rev 13:15; Matt 24:16-20). I believe that there will be a little gap that God will give the believers of the Church to be raptured right after the abomination of desolation, but before the Great Tribulation starts in full swing with the enforcement of a mark on all people on earth representing Satan worship which God considers as the conscious choice of the receiver selling his soul to Satan to be in torment with him for eternity (Rev 13:16-17; 14:9-11; 19:20). After rapture of the Church those left behind people who choose to believe God and reject the mark of the beast will be beheaded by Antichrist for refusing to take the mark, but they will be rewarded by God with a thousand year rule on earth with Jesus at His Second Coming (Rev 14:12-13; 20:4-6).

Actually the Tribulation will start once the Church will be raptured anytime after the first 3 1/2 year timeline within the Daniel 70th Week get fulfilled. Once the Church is out of the earth, Great Tribulation of the end will start (Luke 21:28, 34-36; Eph 4:30). Jesus confirmed the above truth by saying to the believers to flee from the deception of Antichrist which will start in Jerusalem (Matt 24:23-28), and then continues saying, "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." (Matt 24:21-22). So from the above Scriptures Jesus Himself has said that the unprecedented Great Tribulation will start anytime after the abomination of desolation and will end even before the appointed time of God because no flesh on earth will continue to live against the wrath of God which will continue as an echo from heaven against the fury of the Antichrist against God and His children on earth (Rev 14:9-10). The seals are the timeline of the prophetic calender which Jesus will allow on earth to be fulfilled through Antichrist (Rev 6:1-17; 8:1). The trumpets are God's prophetic response on earth through the two prophets and the 144000 servants of God from the 12 tribes of Israel who will be a testimony to the whole world to repent and turn to God (Rev 7:3-4; 11:1-13, 14, 15-19). Once the prophetic messengers are killed and taken to heaven, the wrath of God will directly be revealed from heaven through the bowl judgment upon earth leading to Armageddon battle with the army of Antichrist where he all his cohorts will be destroyed and annihilated in to eternal lake of fire to be forever (Rev 16:1-21; 19:11-21).

The bottom line is, first the abomination of desolation, then the rapture of the Church will happen followed by the Great Tribulation, then the prophetic trumpet judgment warning of God will happen through the two prophets Elijah and Enoch on earth, then the wrath of God will come on Antichrist and the whole world for rejecting the prophetic warning of God with which the Great Tribulation will end. Then Armageddon will take place where Jesus will defeat Antichrist to thereby rule the earth with the Church and the Tribulation saints for a Millennium of peace of prosperity in the will of God. Then the whole earth will be burnt up and the wicked world will be judged before God's great white throne in heaven to be thrown in to the lake of fire. Then God and all the saints will inherit the New heaven, New earth and New Jerusalem to live with Him forever and ever happily. Praise the Lord for the happy ending that God has for everyone of us!!

Much Blessings.....
