In addition to life-threatening weather, political and social changes taking place around the world, we can expect the severity of human problems and issues to increase exponentially. As different locations worldwide experience a 'new normal' of harshness spreading like a cancer, what should we be cognizant of for the future?
As we have previously presented in our End Times series’ there are three 'Last Days' events to be witnessed by the entire world which will spotlight the veracity and truth of God’s redemption plan as prophesied for humanity. The “Ezekiel War” between Israel and her enemies, the rebuilding of the Third “Temple in Jerusalem” and the rise to prominence of the man who will be instrumental in brokering a "Peace and Security" treaty to start the seven year tribulation.
What specifics can we expect to unfold in and around these benchmark events? Before we explain, let’s go back to the Rapture. Again, no one knows the day or hour of its occurrence, but we prophetically know the final confirmation/ratification of this Peace and Security treaty between Israel and her enemies will start the seven-year Tribulation. If the Rapture occurs on or before this significant treaty confirmation date, all those gathered to Christ in the air (Raptured) will miss the seven-year Tribulation.
If the Rapture occurs at Mid Tribulation, all those still alive in the first 3 ½ years of the Tribulation period will be at God’s mercy to survive its death and destruction. During this 3 ½ year period the onslaught of natural disasters will be as never before experienced by so many globally in mankind’s history. At Mid Tribulation, Satan will empower the individual who has been garnering support during the preceding years and give him unsurpassed control over the world as the Antichrist.
If the Rapture is a Mid Tribulation event, Christ believers killed during the first 3 ½ years will have become martyrs. At Mid Tribulation however, God will turn His attention to the reconciliation of Israel’s remnant and the gentile world will literally be on its own. Should you live through the ‘Wrath of Christ’ (the first 3 ½ year period), at Mid Tribulation every person alive will be required to take the ‘Mark of the Beast’ or face being put to death.
Are there believers in Christ who will experience the seven-year tribulation, or parts of it? Probably. It is my belief there are 'Christians' who will suffer the fallout of these years. Are there believers who will manage to survive the entire seven years? Possibly. Scripture indicates there are people who will survive the entire seven years.
Those who are or become believers in Christ during the Tribulation years will be tested and challenged as never before. People worldwide will perish from forces of nature and at the hands of men. Everyone alive will have opportunities to come to know God through His Son, Jesus. However, at Mid Tribulation God will allow Satan and the Antichrist to have and exercise full reign over the earth and its inhabitants.
