The answer is it will be the end of the world as we have known it. Here is what you need to understand, the bible is God’s word, and interpretations can be taken out of context. Many thousands (maybe millions) of people are reporting having dreams and visions … Acts 2:17
|Beyond Today — What Is the Time of the End?
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Many do not perceive living in tribulation as an important issue and have no clue; perhaps this is because they don’t know what real tribulation will be like, or perhaps they simply believe the escapism. We are about faith not fear, suggesting for people to be prepared, not scared.
For a moment, imagine living in the Time-line of tribulations; since so much is given to speculation. Just imagine what life as we know it will be like in the 7 years of tribulation, What will life and death be like?
One thing for sure is there will be 7 years of Tribulations, There will be a start and there will be end!
Considers this; The population of Earth is said to be just above 7 Billion people.
Now imagine World War 2, No one is 100 percent certain of the number of people who died in World War 2 but it experts believe the figure is around the 50-70 million people killed in as a result of World War 2. We all know how destructive this was with the end, ending with two atomic bombs being dropped on Japan.
Now let’s compare World War 2 to the 7 Years of tribulations.
When it starts – Revelation 9:18 By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.
12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth. 13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.
So on the start of tribulation; approximately 2.3 Billion die and 7 years to go.
Towards the End – Revelation 9:20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: 21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
When Jesus returns; its been best guessed approximately 700 million people may be left
Matthew 24:22-And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
Now keep in mind, the start of tribulation; approximately 2.3 Billion die and 7 years to go. Between the start and time of Jesus second coming.
4 Billion more people will die.
After the start of tribulation, until the time Jesus returns;
Know this, there will be 84 Months of Tribulations;
The remaining 4.7 Billion people if spread out over the 84 months, could mean that approximately; 47 million people could die Monthly.
In comparison to World War 2, Experts believe the figure is around the 50-70 million people killed in as a result of World War 2. World War II began on September 1, 1939 and ended on September 2, 1945. It lasted exactly six years and one day.
Tribulations should be well perceived and taken very seriously! Will you be ready? Where will you be? Is the end times the end of the world?
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
|Beyond Today — What Is Armageddon?|
16 Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.
17 Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.
18 Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them.
19 Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it.
28 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near: 29 So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors. 30 Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done. 31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
Be Ready at Any Hour
(Genesis 6:1-7; Matthew 24:36-51; Luke 12:35-48)
32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. 34 For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. 35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: 36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. 37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
