This portion of the blog will focus on some of the events that the bible says must occur before the tribulation will come about and some of the events that will happen during the first half of the tribulation.
- It is believed that one of the events that must have happened before the tribulation is the rebirth of Israel. This has already happened. In 1948, Jewish people returned to Israel and re-established it as a state. Another event is that the Jewish would regain control of Jerusalem. This happened in 1967 after the Six Day War.
- As I have said in a previous blog, some of the signs of the end times are false Christs and prophets will arise, wars and rumors of wars, and famines, pestilences and earthquakes, also nation will rise against nation.
- The Bible tells us that some of the things that will occur during the seven-year tribulation. During the first half of the tribulation there will be war. Then, the bible tells us that the Antichrist will establish a peace treaty with Israel. This will be an agreement for false peace. There will also be famine. The Bible says that death will come to one fourth of the Earth’s people due to famine, war and wild animals. There will be a great earthquake, causing the moon to turn red and the sun to turn black. The two witnesses will appear on the scene. The Antichrist will require people to accept the mark of the beast in order to buy or sell. There will be a one-world government.
