7 Year Tribulation

Written by Michael Bradley

As you will see inrepparttar Scripture verses listed below,repparttar 140554 Great Tribulation will last 7 years. Atrepparttar 140555 midpoint ofrepparttar 140556 Tribulation,repparttar 140557 Antichrist will seat himself inrepparttar 140558 Temple of God that will have to rebuilt byrepparttar 140559 Jewish people. He will proclaim himself to be God. This event is calledrepparttar 140560 abomination of desolation byrepparttar 140561 prophet Daniel. Jesus Himself specifically refers to this event inrepparttar 140562 New Testament.
Jesus says that once this event occurs, that His people are to literally run forrepparttar 140563 hills. Jesus says thatrepparttar 140564 last three and half years ofrepparttar 140565 Tribulation set off byrepparttar 140566 abomination of desolation will berepparttar 140567 worst tribulation and time of trouble thatrepparttar 140568 world has ever seen. He says that had these days not been shortened by Godrepparttar 140569 Father, that no flesh would be saved.
I feel Jesus is implying that man probably would have destroyedrepparttar 140570 earth at or shortly afterrepparttar 140571 Battle of Armageddon. The Antichrist starts to lose control of his empire. Other nations come against him inrepparttar 140572 battle of Armageddon. Withrepparttar 140573 availability of nuclear weapons, my guess is thatrepparttar 140574 Antichrist may have been willing to "hitrepparttar 140575 button" if he thought he was going to lose his empire. If he hitsrepparttar 140576 button, chances arerepparttar 140577 other nations he is going to fight against will also be willing to hitrepparttar 140578 button, and you thus could end up in a full scale nuclear war.

You have already seen what an ego-maniac this man is going to be fromrepparttar 140579 description of his personality inrepparttar 140580 above verses. With him being underrepparttar 140581 influence and control of Satan, I feelrepparttar 140582 most logical conclusion is that both he and Satan would be more than willing to hitrepparttar 140583 nuclear button if they thought they could not retain control of their built up empire.

I really feel that this is what Jesus meant when he said that no flesh would be saved if God had not shortened these days atrepparttar 140584 end of this Tribulation. Here arerepparttar 140585 key Scripture verses onrepparttar 140586 7 year Tribulation.

1. This first verse from Daniel shows thatrepparttar 140587 7 year Tribulation is initially established byrepparttar 140588 Antichrist confirming a covenant with Israel and then inrepparttar 140589 middle ofrepparttar 140590 covenant he will set uprepparttar 140591 abomination of desolation.

"Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but inrepparttar 140592 middle ofrepparttar 140593 week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And onrepparttar 140594 wing of abomination shall be one who makes desolate, even untilrepparttar 140595 consummation, which is determined, is poured out onrepparttar 140596 desolate." (Daniel 9:27)
One week has been determined to be one year. How do you know that? Because inrepparttar 140597 middle ofrepparttar 140598 week,repparttar 140599 Antichrist sets uprepparttar 140600 abomination of desolation. And we already know that oncerepparttar 140601 abomination of desolation is set up, there will be 42 months or three and half years to go beforerepparttar 140602 end. So that tells us that one week is equal to 7 years. This is how you know thatrepparttar 140603 Tribulation is for a 7 year time period.

2. The next verse from Daniel specifically tells you that oncerepparttar 140604 animal sacrifice is taken away fromrepparttar 140605 Jews andrepparttar 140606 abomination of desolation is set up, that there will be 1290 days untilrepparttar 140607 end!! 1290 is three and half years and 13 days.

"And fromrepparttar 140608 time thatrepparttar 140609 daily sacrifice is taken away, andrepparttar 140610 abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand, two hundred and ninety days (1290). Blessed is he who waits, and comes torepparttar 140611 one thousand three hundred and thirty five days (1335)." (Daniel 12:11-12)
Notice inrepparttar 140612 first part ofrepparttar 140613 above verse that it says "the daily sacrifice is taken away." This refers torepparttar 140614 fact that whenrepparttar 140615 Jewish people rebuild their Temple, they will once more reinstituterepparttar 140616 practice of animal sacrifice as they did inrepparttar 140617 Old Testament. The Antichrist will allow this to go on for a time, but when he sets himself up to sit inrepparttar 140618 Temple of God inrepparttar 140619 abomination of desolation, he will take this privilege away fromrepparttar 140620 Jewish people! This verse is giving you two key pieces to let you know when we are atrepparttar 140621 midpoint ofrepparttar 140622 Tribulation -repparttar 140623 taking away of animal sacrifices andrepparttar 140624 Antichrist seating himself up inrepparttar 140625 Temple proclaiming himself to be God. At that point, we have 42 months or as Daniel says above, 1290 days which is three and half years plus 13 days. The last sentence refers however torepparttar 140626 people going a little longer - 1335 days. This may be referring to when Jesus comes down and destroysrepparttar 140627 armies that have come against Jerusalem inrepparttar 140628 battle of Armageddon -repparttar 140629 time period forrepparttar 140630 Jews to come back to their homes since a lot of them will have been in hiding duringrepparttar 140631 last three and half years.

The Battle of Armageddon

Written by Michael Bradley

This will be last and final event ofrepparttar Great Tribulation. The Bible says that immediately afterrepparttar 140553 Tribulation occurs, Jesus will return back to us for His second coming! Here are 2 key verses on this battle and how it all gets set up inrepparttar 140554 first place.

1. This 1st verse is very, very interesting. It implies thatrepparttar 140555 Antichrist does not have full control overrepparttar 140556 entire world. It says that he hears "news" fromrepparttar 140557 east and north that trouble him. This news causes him to go out in "great fury" to annihilate many. My guess is that China and Russia do not want to come under his rule and they are setting up to come against him. Here isrepparttar 140558 verse:

"But news fromrepparttar 140559 east andrepparttar 140560 north shall trouble him; therefore he shall go out with great fury to destroy and annihilate many. And he shall plantrepparttar 140561 tents of his palace betweenrepparttar 140562 seas andrepparttar 140563 glorious holy mountains; and yet he shall come to his end, and no one will help him." (Daniel 11:44-45)
This verse tells us that he is going to meet his end and that no one is going to be able to help him. As you will see further down, Jesus isrepparttar 140564 one who will be putting an end to him - so this verse is showing us that this event will lead up torepparttar 140565 battle of Armageddon.

2. In this next verse,repparttar 140566 word Armageddon is actually used to describerepparttar 140567 place where this battle is going to take place. Armageddon isrepparttar 140568 plain of Megiddo which formsrepparttar 140569 only pass throughrepparttar 140570 mountains which enters fromrepparttar 140571 North and South of Israel. It is in northern Israel and it is a natural pass fromrepparttar 140572 Mediterranean Sea throughrepparttar 140573 mountains andrepparttar 140574 interior of Israel.
