The Great Tribulation
Many people have heard of the Great Tribulation, but aren’t sure what it is or what it will mean for their lives.
Christ told His disciples, “For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).
We don’t know exactly when the most perilous time ever known to man will begin, but the Bible says it will catch most people off guard.
There are signs given in the Bible that tell us what to look for. They will tell us where we are in biblical prophecy.
The events leading up to Christ’s return to earth will be the worst in all of history. The Bible says, “And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened” (Matthew 24:22).
But Christ will intervene to prevent the total destruction of the human race. The end times will actually be good news for all of mankind.
“But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth” (Luke 21:34-35).
The return of Christ will bring a new order to the entire world–God’s way of life. There are many questions about when and where Christ will return. Some think it will be a secret rapture. However, the Bible says Christ’s return will be visible to everyone on earth.
