The man-of-lawlessness (antichrist) persecuting Israel/Jews and the Church.
Jesus forewarned us.
Yet, fear not.
The great tribulation will be cut short.
It will be shortened.
As mentioned before, it will be cut short by the rapture of the church.
Watch what will happen…
“But in those days, after that tribulation,
THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT,
AND THE STARS WILL BE FALLING from heaven,
and the powers that are in the heavens will be shaken.
“Then they will see THE SON OF MAN COMING IN CLOUDS with great power and glory.
“But immediately after the tribulation of those days THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, AND THE STARS WILL FALL from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
“And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY with power and great glory.
“Then they will see THE SON OF MAN COMING IN A CLOUD with power and great glory.
“But when these things begin to take place, straighten up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”
This the sign!
This is how we will know.
Cosmic darkening will take place.
The darkness will truncate the tribulation.
So, unless we see the heavens shaken, then Messiah has not return.
Someone claims to be Messiah?
Is the sun still shining?
Someone claims to know where Messiah is?
Is the moon still giving light?
Someone claims the church has been raptured?
Are the stars still in the heavens?
This is the death-knell of “pre-tribulationism” and “imminentcy”.
When “these things’ take place “straighten up and lift up your heard”.
Sounds like Believers might be “laying low”.
Your redemption is drawing near!
