    • (Between the 69 th and 70 th week, came in the church period; so one week remains to be fulfilled.)
  • 13. TRIBULATION
    • Weeks are not weeks of seven days.
    • The original word is “SHABUA” or “HEPTADS”

    • Revelation 13: 4-5 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

    • and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue
    • forty and two months. (3 ½ years)

    • (7 x 7 ) + (62 x 7) = 49+ 434= 483 Years
    • 7 Weeks+ 62 Weeks= 69+ 1 week= 70 Weeks
    • 70 weeks are of 7 years= 490 years

    • 2. Mid-tribulation rapture
    • 3. Post-tribulation rapture
    • CHURCH WILL NOT PASS THROUGH
    • (I BELIEVE IN THE PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE)
    • 1 Cor.15: 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. (Rapture is imminent)
  • 19. TRIBULATION (WHY THE CHURCH WILL NOT PASS THRU TRIBULATION)
    • AS BRIDE OF CHRIST
    • Church is the bride of Christ ( Rev.22: 17 )
    • Church is espoused to Christ ( 2.Cor.12: 2 )
    • Church is waiting for Him ( 1.The.1: 10 )
    • Will not deliver his turtle dove ( Ps. 79: 19 )
    • Church is not the object of His wrath
    • 1 The.5: 9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
    • 1 The.1: 10 And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.
  • 20. TRIBULATION (Why church will not pass thru it?)
    • RAPTURE BEFORE THE TRIBULATION BIGINS
    • Rev. 1: 1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:
    • Rev. 1:19 Write the things which thou hast seen,
    • (Christ the glorified-Rev.Ch.1)
    • and the things which are,
    • (Mystery of the seven churches- present period (Ch.2-3)
    • and the things which shall be hereafter;
    • (After rapture- Rev. 4: 1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: I heard which said, Come up hither , and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter .
    • (From Ch.4- 18: 14 Church is not seen)
  • 21. TRIBULATION (ARGUMENTS IN FAVOUR AND ANSWER)
    • JEWS HAD TROUBLES IN THE PAST?
    • (But this is un-precedent –Mat.24: 21; Jer.30:7)
    • The Church had suffered in the past?
    • Had not allowed to suffer at times and places?
    • Why not then allow the last part to pass thru?
    • (But tribulation is the wrath; He will not-1.The.5: 9)
    • “ He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved”? (Matt.24: 13)
    • It is about the tribulation saints –(Now we are saved by Grace alone- Ep.2: 8 )
  • 22. TRIBULATION (ARGUMENTS IN FAVOUR AND AGAINST)
    • Resurrection at the last trumpet? Will not then church pass thru other six?
    • Seven trumpets are of judgment; so different from the other (Learn the different use of trumpets in Num. 10: 1-10; Here it is v.9 )
    • (Resurrection was not; but translation of saints a mystery; Apostle Paul revealed- trumpet of 1.Thes.4: 16, 1.Cor.15: 52 )
    • Why the need of two phases for coming?
    • Rapture and Revelation are revealed in the Scriptures.
    • Why not allow together with Jews the tribulation?
    • Church will be caught up before ( 1.Cor.15: 52 )
  • 23. TRIBULATION
    • WILL IT AFFECT THE WHOLE WORLD ?
    • Dan 12: 1 And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
    • Mat. 24: 21 For then shall be great tribulation , such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time , no, nor ever shall be.
    • Luke 21: 35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth .
    • (If you are not in the rapture, you will be left behind to pass thru the tribulation)
  • 24. TRIBULATION
    • HOW THE DAYS OF TRIBULAION ?
    • Zep.1: 14-15 The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation.
    • Amos 5: 18-19 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.
    • Revelation 9: 6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
    • Mat 24: 22 Except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
  • 25. TRIBULATION (EVENTS DURING THE TRIBULATION)

    • and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John

    • (Events what we read of happening from Ch. 6 till the end of Ch. 18 are the events during the tribulation; but the church is not seen there)
  • 26. TRIBULATION (When anti-christ be revealed)
    • 2 Thes.2: 7-8 He who now letteth will let, until he be taken out
    • of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed.
    • He (Holy Spirit) is not letting (is resisting now)
    • In Rapture Holy Spirit will take the church.
    • Then the way is for the wicked to be revealed
    • The wicked world will be ready to accept the “ the Man of Sin”, or “the Son of perdition”

    • the man of wickedness )
