THE TRIBULATION LENGTH CONTROVERSY

“For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

There is an important and ongoing discussion in prophetic circles today.  It is preoccupied with the length of the period known as the “great tribulation.”  Does the Tribulation have a seven year duration, or does it only last three-and-a-half years?  It is often argued that the numerous references to “a time, times and a half,” “a thousand, two hundred and sixty days,” forty two months,” will only support a three-and-half year Tribulation.  These, they say, constitute proof that this period is only half of the traditionally-mentioned seven years.  For several reasons, it is biblically correct to still hold to the traditional teaching that the actual Tribulation is a full seven years in length.

DARKNESS DESCENDING AND THE IMMINENT RETURN OF CHRIST: DEFENDING THE DOCTRINE OF THE PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE

Woe unto you that desire the day of the Lord! to what end is it for you? the day of the Lord is darkness, and not light.  As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him.  Shall not the day of the Lord be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it? (Amos 5:18-20).

“A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations” (Joel 2:2).

Christ’s return is still imminent.  This article is only a brief sampling of the many New Testament verses in support of Christ’s most basic promise, to come for the church before the seven years of global judgment, the Tribulation, strikes the earth.  “I will come again and receive you unto myself” (John 14:3).  Later in this article, I will share with you the reader a dramatic sign that my wife was a personal witness of that would indicate that the Rapture and the much spoken of biblical time of judgment known as the Tribulation period are quickly approaching events soon to occur.  It is a sign that she, a skeptic and still a skeptic, first saw with her own two eyes and very fortunately captured on camera. The photo is quite dramatic and telling of the times in which we are currently living in for those with the correct discernment.  It is a time of storm clouds on the horizon, a time of descending darkness.

DEAD SEA SCROLL OF THE GOSPEL OF MARK

The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in the caves of Qumran along the northwestern shore of the Dead Sea constitutes the most exciting discovery affecting biblical studies in this century.  It was in February or March, 1947, that an Arab Shepherd boy by the name of Mohammed discovered the ancient documents.  It was said that he was looking for a lost goat when he tossed a rock into one of the caves and heard the sound of breaking pottery.  Out of curiosity, he climbed into the cave to see what was there. Once inside, he found some old pots with the scrolls intact.  Either he or members of his family took the scrolls to the city of Bethlehem and sold them to a merchant for what amounted to a couple of dollars.  Thus began the story of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

THE SEVEN-FOLD DEATH OF MEGALOPOLIS – GOD’S HIDDEN SIGN

When the history of “Mystery Babylon The Great” from Revelation 17 and 18 are examined from it’s commercial history perspective, we discover that it was the ancient merchants of Tarshish that were headquartered first in Tyre, then later in Carthage, Rome and other parts of Europe.  In Ezekiel 27, they provide the prophetic model for the last days “merchant bankers” of our era.  Today, these men control the world’s commerce, operating under the ancient premise that their transactions supersede the laws of the various nations that they use to promote their global profiteering.  These men have always operated under the so-called “Law Merchant,” which gives them a kind of immunity from the strictures of local practice.  Rather, they are a law unto themselves, and their credo is global citizenship.
