This portion of the blog is going to focus on the actual events of the tribulation. As I stated in a previous blog, the rise of the Anti-Christ is one event. At the beginning of the tribulation, the Anti-Christ will sign the seven year peace treaty and covenant with Israel. This is the event that is believed to be the start of the tribulation. This will be a period of peace and false security. There will be an invasion on Israel, many believe that Russia , Iran, Germany, and Libya will invade Israel and God will supernaturally destroy the invading army (some speculate this will actually occur prior to the tribulation).

The next period is the “Great Tribulation” is described as a period of great distress. Daniel 9:27 tells us that in that in the middle of the covenant with Israel, the Anti-Christ will break the covenant and set up the “abomination of Desolation”. The Anti-Christ sets up an image of himself in the Temple and demands the worship of all people. During these last 3 1/2 years, the Jews that believe in Christ will flee into the mountains away from the Anti-Christ. The Anti-Christ has reign in the last years of the tribulation and God’s wrath is poured upon Earth. The events in the last 3 1/2 years are called the Seven Trumpets and the Seven Bowls found in the book of Revelation.

During the Seven Trumpet Judgments, fire rains upon the Earth and burns up one-third of the trees and grass. God also releases a huge mountain (meteor) into the sea and one-third of the sea turns to blood, and kills one-third of all living creatures in the sea, and destroying one-third of the ships on the sea. A huge abyss is opened releasing locusts that were given the power to sting like scorpions. The locusts were to attack all the people that did not have God’s seal on their foreheads, they did not kill these people, just tormented them, the people wanted to die, but could not. Next, 4 of satan’s angels are released from the Euphrates river to kill one third of the humans. They will lead an army of 200 million demonic spirits to carry out a mass slaughter of humans. The army was on horses that had the head of lions and spit fire and smoke from their mouth. Mankind was killed by their mouths. The power of the horses was in their mouths and tails, their tails were like snakes having heads that inflicted injury. People still did not repent, they continued to worship false idols and gods, and they did not repent. The events of the latter part of the Tribulation are revealed in the Seven Bowl Judgments. That will be my next blog.


  1. I wonder why everything is one-third? I find all of this hard to believe. It all just seems too unrealistic. All in all, very interesting.

  2. Yea I do believe in some things he is saying. But i just dont no when it will happen and it is very hard to believe.

  3. There will never be peace with Israel and other countries surrounding it. They all want israel. i believe with things in this blog but somethings i don't good blog
