Great Tribulation Mystery (MA25)

Period of the 5th Seal

Now, where are we in Mat 24?

Beginning of Sorrows (Mat 24:4-8)

Mat 24:6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

Brethren we are here at this point of time, where rumours of wars are rampant but they must come to pass. As soon as Israel/Egypt attack Persia (Iran, Iraq or Syria), then the horrible WW3, as though it is the end of the world (end is not yet) will begin.

Events after WW3

5th Seal (Rev 6:9-11)

1. Period of Tribulation (Mat 24:9-14) or the Wrath of Satan for a period of 42 months (Rev 14)

Mat 24:9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake.

Brethren, God uses the wrath of Satan to refine Christians in His preparation of the bride of the Lamb for Rapture.

2. Great Tribulation (Mat 24:15-28)

Mat 24:21-22 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. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.

This great Tribulation is the end of the wrath of Satan lasting only a few weeks. Almost every theologian mistakes this Great Tribulation as the 7th Seal comprising of the wrath of Satan and the wrath of the Lamb or God totalling 7 years.

6th Seal (Rev 6:12-17)

1. Heavenly Blackout (Mat 24:29)

Mat 24:29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

2. The Rapture (Mat 30-31)

Mat 24:30-31 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Salvation of mankind (Grace for the Gentiles) is complete at Rapture.

Rev 7:14-15 And I said to him, “Sir, you know.” So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them.

Immediately after Rapture, all those who were caught up at Rapture will be before His throne and given white garments in heaven (Rev 7:8-17).

7th Seal or Wrath of God

Rev 6:16 and said to the mountains and rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!

After Rapture is the Wrath of the Lamb or 7th Seal or Wrath of God (42 months) upon all those left behind who had worshipped the Antichrist or taken the mark of the beast.

Rev 14:9-10 Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb."
