The Coming Great Tribulation (Some Believe It Will Begin in 2013!)
“For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved.” - Matthew 24:21-22
Some believe the great tribulation will being in the year 2013. Personally, I don’t like to put dates on things, rather watch the prophecies play out, however we can’t deny the fact that the signs which Jesus warned us about in Matthew chapter 24 is happening before our very eyes: wars, rumours of wars, famine, pestilence, the rise of false prophets, extreme weather patterns and earthquakes happening everywhere, so time will tell.
The tribulation period is a period of seven years, described in the Bible, when the world will descend into catastrophic devastation, a mixture of persecution, plagues, major climate disasters, war, turmoil, and much more, as the world has never seen or experienced in the whole of history.
This will be a symbol of God’s wrath upon the world, especially directed at those who have refused Christ, taken the ‘mark,‘ (now damned to hell for eternity), who now belong to and worship the beast. ‘There will be no rest and they will seek death and will not find it,’ no rest for the wicked. (Revelation 9:6)
Will Christians escape this great tribulation period?
Christians are divided over whether we will be raptured before or after the tribulation period. You can read my position and thoughts on the pre, mid or post tribulation viewpoints in my article about the rapture.
