Did you know that as are early as 2,500 years ago, the prophet Daniel has already prophesied the 7 YEARS OF TRIBULATION as the 70th Week of Israel? (Daniel 9: 27). This 7-year period is also known as Jacob’s (Israel) Trouble. (Jeremiah 30: 7).
Jesus Christ foretold it as, “For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now – and never to be equaled again.” (Matthew 24: 21).
NOTE: As prophesied, Israel’s 69 Weeks (483 of the 490 years) have already come to pass. (Daniel 9: 24-26). It was fulfilled when King Artaxerxes of Persia (Iran) issued a decree to rebuild Jerusalem in 445 BC (Nehemiah 2), and after exactly 483 years, Israel’s Messiah (Jesus Christ) came and was crucified in 32 AD (Matthew 21).
Then GOD, in the interim, focused His grace on Believers (His true Church) until Jesus Christ comes back in the air to snatch the dead and living Believers at the imminent, instantaneous RAPTURE.
But being Faithful and True, GOD will surely not leave Israel – the apple of His eye – in limbo. Since GOD has fulfilled the 1st up to the 69th weeks, He will surely fulfil the 70th week of Israel and the world to the dot.
RAPTURE first, TRIBULATION follows. (For example, Lot was taken out first, prior to the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah by fire. (Genesis 19).)
REMEMBER: Bible prophecy is “History written in advance” for us to know, to believe and to heed – written words from the all-knowing and all-powerful GOD who is present at all times. And it will surely come into reality in due time.
The Bible declares that the 7 YEARS OF TRIBULATION will start when Israel signs a 7-year peace treaty or covenant with the head (Antichrist) of the revived Roman empire. But the Antichrist will break the covenant after 3 1/2 years and will persecute Israel. (Daniel 9: 27). It will end when Jesus Christ comes to save Israel from annihilation being perpetuated by the forces of the Antichrist. This crucial event will be known as the Battle of Armageddon – the biggest, boldest and bloodiest battle in the annals of the world’s history – yet the shortest. As a result, the Antichrist will have the distinct “dishonor” of being the first to be thrown alive in the fiery lake of burning sulfur (raptured negatively in the final HELL). (Revelation 19: 11-21).
Also, during this 7-year period, while the Antichrist and False Prophet are very busy controlling the world politically, militarily, economically, and religiously, GOD will pour out His wrath on the earth via 7 seals, 7 trumpets and 7 bowls of judgments. And within this short period of unprecedented and intense suffering, more than one half of the world’s population will be killed. The world – land, sea and air – will be totally devastated by both man-made and natural calamities. (Matthew 24: 1-22; Revelation 6-16). Surely, you don’t want to be present here on earth during this time, don’t you?
By the way, if you want to be a Believer during this period, you must be willing to pay the price with your own life – via Beheading. (Revelation 20: 4).
NOTE: Beheading is now a common practice in Mindanao, Middle East and Africa. And why? Here’s the precedent: In his book, “Islam and the Jews”, Dr. Mark A. Gabriel (who memorized the Koran at the age of 12 and obtained a doctorate degree in Islamic history and culture from Egypt’s Al-Azhar University), gave us this eye view: With their desire to go directly to Paradise someday via Jihad or holy war, radical Muslims follow with zeal the footsteps of their prophet – Mohammad.
And this is what Mohammad did before: When Mohammad, initially a preacher, was wooing the dispersed Jews in Mecca, Arabia to embrace Islam, the Jews asked him to perform a miracle – to prove that he is a real prophet of GOD, like Moses. Despite fervent prayers, Mohammad was not able to do any miracle. He lost face, got mad and pursued vengeance. Eventually, Mohammad, now a military dictator in Medina, decreed that the Jews are the enemies of Allah, even if they were then scattered in various countries and were not a threat to any nation.
And in the aftermath of Mohammad’s aggression Battle of Qurayzah which he personally led in the year 627, Mohammad ordered the beheading of about 900 male Jews who already have surrendered. The remaining children and women were distributed to his soldiers and were sold as slaves, with Mohammad getting first the 20% of all the spoils of war (money, possessions, women, and children).
So, the dictum of these radical Muslims who behead now is: “If Mohammad did it, we must do it!”
If the radical Muslims win, they’ll have the spoils of war. If they die, they’re promised by Allah and Mohammad that they’ll go straight to Paradise – each having 70 virgins awaiting them – as rewards. Plus, they can drink all the alcohol they want. (Surah 9: 20-21; 55 – 56, 72; 47: 15). However, if they ran away during the war, they’ll surely burn in Hell. (Surah 9: 38-39, 41). Therefore, avoiding Hell and going straight to Paradise at all costs (without having to go through the Day of Judgment which all Muslims fear most but have to face) is the basic motivation of radical Muslims – a religion.
For us to compare, know and not be misled, Jesus Christ declared the following: “The thief (Devil) comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (John 10: 10). And “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father (GOD in Heaven) except through me. (John 14: 6).”
