The END TIME - the tribulation

by Bruce Kettler

September 12, 2008  update

The 9 points listed below are by no means all that is available. There is much more.

The date that the great tribulation begins is controversial.  The signs show that certain very unusual manifestations of the prophesied end times have begun.  They will become far more intense.  Persecution will increase, and earthquakes will be far more severe to cite just two examples of many. Jesus is coming again soon.

Luke 21:31

"...when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the
kingdom of God is nigh at hand."

It's important that God's people keep themselves informed, and one should not depend upon the mainstream media.  Look for current information on these web sites.  I believe that our Messiah, Jesus, wants us to be informed of current events.  How else are we to "...see these things come to pass."  It's also important to be prepared to survive in the wilderness.

Events in many parts of the world, including the United States, are unfolding in a manner similar to what happened in Russia and China during the takeover of Communism.  THE AMAZING TESTIMONY OF BORIS SOROKOVSKY tells of how Christians in Russia followed the leading of the Holy Spirit before the oppression started in certain areas.  Be sure and download the information, print it, and read it.  It's very important for our time.

Although many of us may die during the tribulation, and be resurrected later to forever be with the Lord, consider how glorious it will be to have lived through these last days, and be alive at Jesus' coming:

"Pray always that ye may be worthy to escape all these things that shall come to
pass, and to stand before the Son of man."  Luke 21:36

These are the 3 most important facts about the end time that those who have given their lives to the Lord must be aware of.

    1.   Many will lie and profess to be Christians.    Matthew 24:5 The Messiah said:
          "...many shall come in my name, saying I
          am [of] Christ, and shall deceive many."
REMEMBER, the Lord, when he returns, will be seen:
" ...in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory."
Matt. 24:30
This "...in the clouds" does not include demons who are supposed
to be UFO occupants from outer space.

Remember there will be an "...abomination of desolation" Matt 24:15

II Thess. 2:4:

    "Who opposeth and exhalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped,
    so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God."

    Who is this?  It is not Jesus Christ.  He will appear on the Earth.  The Bible calls him "the man of sin."
    He appears before Christ returns to Earth.


2.    Do Not Take the Mark of the Beast

             That's literally a "mark," when referencing the Strongs Greek Concordance, that you must have
                  (other than cash), issued by government, or any earthly authority, to buy or sell. They will start
                  with ID cards, and looking at what is taking place now one can see that the authorities will say
                  that the card will no longer suffice since so many people, allegedly, will be having their
                  identification stolen.

                 The mark is an RFID chip imbedded in your body, something you will be required to do in disobedience
                 of Almighty Yahweh so that you are then permitted to buy or sell.  You see, government, or any
                  earthly authority, is not meant to replace our God, and to become a god to us.

      There may be an alternative method of marking people, not exactly as described above.
             Revelation 13: 16-17

                  "...and he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond to receive a
                        mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads. And that no man might buy or sell,
                        save he that had the mark."

3.   There is no pre-tribulation rapture.

                          First comes the tribulation. Then our Messiah returns.

                 Matthew 24:29

                              "Immediately after the tribulation of those days..."

                               vs 30 "And then shall appear the sign of the son of man..."

                                       vs 22 "...for the elect's *sake those days shall be shortened..."

                           [for the *sake of those on the Earth during the tribulation, who loved, and were faithful to the Messiah (Jesus)]

If you are not certain you are AT ONE with Almighty Yahweh, reading this will not make you ready for tribulation.  Readiness comes from knowing Jesus, and having the indwelling Holy Spirit. See the salvation page.

So, how do we know this is the END TIME?   Some say, "There have always been earthquakes, wars, and rumors of wars.?

Well, this time coming up is different.

           Matt. 24:21

        "For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning
         of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be."

The context of the scripture shows this tribulation will be world wide, all over the earth.

The tribulations, the earthquakes, the wars, etc. that have been on the earth have been, largely, for particular areas, and the signs of tribulation, recent events show, is world wide. The fact that the entire earth is being set up for a one world government shows this.

The tribulations of the past have been limited in intensity when compared to what is now unfolding. To ascertain what is now unfolding, which is hidden from us by the mainstream press, use the links page, and the News Alert page. This tribulation is "...such as was not since the beginning of the world..."

I'm going to illustrate some points, and you should realize how recent events and the scripture mesh in such a way that any competent statistician would find the odds against this being mere coincidence to be astronomically high.


Earthquakes are not what they once were.

                         Matt 24:7

                         "earthquakes in divers [various] places."

The large earthquakes have doubled since 1987, and all earthquakes have tripled.   Earthquakes above 6.0 on the richter scale increased 30 times during 1990's, when compared to the 1940's.  Each decade showed a drastic increase from the one previous.   The December 26, 2004 quake (nearly duplicated in intensity and location 4 months later) was the beginning of a huge number of large quakes yet to manifest world wide, and the earth is now becoming increasingly fragile.
See Stan Deyo's site for updates on the Earth's condition.  Through scientific methodology, Stan Deyo predicted the Earthquake of December 26, 2004.

           This tribulation is "...such as was not since the beginning of the world..."


        The faithful followers of the Messiah (Jesus) are becoming   "...hated of all nations." Matt. 24:9

Never before in history have the faithful been persecuted by the courts in countries such as the US, UK, Australia, etc. I'm not referring, here, to those who just attend state controlled churches.  Of course, I'm also not referring to persecution by individuals, but rather by the State itself, and I'm not referring to countries where there has always been persecution.  In the U.S., of all the religions practiced, faithful Christians are being singled out for persecution.  Since the present rulers worship Satan, the enemy of Christ, with discernment one can see why there is this persecution
Satan directs them to fight faithful (real) Christians.

See this video, and look for the part that shows World Leaders worshipping Satan.

                                http://www.truthtellers.org   check here for the latest regarding attempts to pass "hate crime" laws in the U.S.

        This tribulation is "...such as was not since the beginning of the world..."



Immorality has increased to the point that it is promoted in PUBLIC SCHOOLS in the U.S. This is one
of many examples I could show.  All over the world, especially where the New World Order prevails,
morality is at an all time low.  Never before has it been this disgusting. That is one of the many motives
for parents to home school in the U.S.
                          II Tim. 3: 4

                              "...lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God."

The popular psychology of the day says, "...love yourself."
                   This tribulation is "...such as was not since the beginning of the world..."


                          Wars have recently increased worldwide in quantity, in the degree of cruelty inflicted, and in potential devastation.

                               Much information is hidden by mainstream media, so look at the links page for accurate and up-to-date information.
                               The war in Iraq has caused radiation sickness and deformed babies, both in and out of the region.
                      Luke 21:20
"And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know
the desolation thereof is nigh."
As I write this, war drums are sounding for the U.S. to invade Iran.

If it happens, that will probably involve Israel.  Iran is aligned with Russia and China.  This could lead
to Jerusalem being surrounded by, and filled with, armies from various countries.

Matt 24:7
"For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom..."

This tribulation is "...such as was not since the beginning of the world..."

                        Matt. 24:7


When one considers the poisons coming out of the sky that most of us breathe, the deliberate contamination of food by hybridizing, placing supplements out of reach that would have enhanced the immune systems of many people, and recent attempts to do that in the U.S., along with the recent drastic increases in diseases such as cancer, it cannot be denied that the Earth's population is in trouble.

                               Respiratory ailments have increased drastically since the skies around the world
                               have been sprayed over the past 11 years.

                               See:     http://www.carnicom.com

                               Depleted Uranium is spreading all over the earth, and where it is particularly intense, such as in Iraq,
                               many babies are born with deformities.  Some soldiers returning to the U.S. are causing cancer in their
                               mates.  Some scientists have expressed concern that the growing level of radiation in Iraq,
                               spreading world-wide, will bring diseases for much of humanity.  See this web site.

                               Whether it's the spread of disease, or of the causes of disease, the definition of "pestilence" fits:

                                                 "...destructive, infectious, swiftly spreading disease."

                         This tribulation is "...such as was not since the beginning of the world..."


               In just a small part of the 20th and 21st Centuries, there has been an explosion of travel and education.

                        Daniel 12:4

                                          " ...the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased."

                This tribulation is "...such as was not since the beginning of the world..."



             II Tim. 3:1

                                          "in the last days, perilous [dangerous] times shall come..."

We are in the last days, according to the descriptions that follow the above verse.  Never before have so many who profess belief in Jesus shown themselves to be so far removed from the teachings of Jesus.  This is world-wide in scope.
"...have a form of godliness, but deny the power thereof..."
They are...
"...ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth."
                           It has come to the point that most should seek assembly in informal gatherings, rather than organized churches.
This tribulation is "...such as was not since the beginning of the world..."
                   The so-called "Christian" churches have been, in these "latter times" "...giving heed
                   to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils."  I Tim. 4:1
                  See these pages for more information...

This tribulation is "...such as was not since the beginning of the world..."

Revelation 13:7

"And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them:
and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations."
This "beast" will have power over "all kindreds, and tongues, and nations."

That, clearly, is the New World Order.  .When, in all earth history, has the entire earth been so close to complete domination by one world power?

In addition, the "dragon" gives power to the New World Order.

                  Revelation 13:4

                          "...they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the Beast."

See this video, and look for the part that shows world leaders worshipping Satan.
                  Revelation 12:9

                      "...dragon...the Devil and Satan"

The "Dragon" is the Devil. He gives this power to The New World Order for two reasons. One is that the
Earth's people have fallen deep into sin, so Yahweh (God) withholds his protection. The other is that the
leaders of this world worship the Devil.

The second beast of Revelation 13 is the "false prophet," the so-called "Christian Church" which is under the
rule of the State - the new world order.

                    This tribulation is "...such as was not since the beginning of the world..."
