When is the Great Tribulation Bible Verses Coming?

Let us begin, shall we? Make sure you check the Scripture that is being shared in the Great Tribulation Bible study as to confirm Truth.

Okay let's recap ... The first Rapture has occurred, God's chosen Christians that are left behind are in hiding and the Great Tribulation has begun. Jesus shared with us that all three of these events happen on the same day.

Luke 21:25-28

25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory [Rapture].
28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Luke 17:26-33

26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from Heaven, and destroyed them all.
30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
31 In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.
32 Remember Lot's wife.
33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.

When is the Great Tribulation Going to Happen

If you have read along in the Prepare For End Times Study you know we have found a list of events that will be happening simultaneously between the 6th and 7th Seals.

  • 6th Seal - The Great Tribulation Bible Verses say it is about to begin. There is a great earthquake and the sun becomes black. The moon becomes as blood, the stars of Heaven fall to Earth and the Heaven departs as a scroll when it is rolled together. Every mountain and island are moved out of their places.
  • The abomination of desolation is set up.
  • God's first fruits are sealed.
  • Jesus gathers His elect.
  • The rapture of the Gentiles takes place.
  • Those who are left behind, go into hiding.

Now, if you are one who is left behind, these are the events that are taking place around you as you begin your 3½ year adventure.

Now let us look at the next event that those left behind can expect:

The Great Tribulation Bible Verses Warning
When is the Great Tribulation Danger

Another thing to be aware of: Remember, Jesus said that when Jerusalem was surrounded by armies, it's time to go into hiding, so what do you think will be going on in Israel at the time of the Great Tribulation?

Luke 21:24-26

24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

Revelation 11:1-2

1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the Angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

1 Thessalonians 5:3-8

3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

When is the Great Tribulation Bible Verses Timing

While those chosen to stay behind are in hiding, there will be many things happening that they will be thankful the Lord is protecting them from. Soon after the Great Tribulation begins, the unbelievers will be experiencing the 7 Trumpets as described in Revelation, Chapter 8 and Revelation, Chapter 9. Jesus described the chaos that the world will face.

It's time to open Page 8 of Prepare for End Times. Once you've finished, there is more to learn, so I will meet you back here.

Between the 6th and 7th Trumpet, the mystery is fulfilled. The believers who are chosen, will be Raptured.

Revelation 10:7

But in the days of the voice of the seventh Angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He hath declared to His servants the prophets.

When is the Great Tribulation Bible Verses Tidbit of Truth ... Here is what the mystery is:

1 Corinthians 15:51-53

51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the Archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

The Great Tribulation Bible Verses on the Rapture

Check out the Rapture Study if you are unclear as to there being two Raptures.

All the things you read about on this page, are things that you'll be hidden from in the wilderness, but the unbelievers will witness and experience these things firsthand, and ⅔ of the earth's population, will die.

Zechariah 13:8-9

8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.
9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God.

How about a quick Great Tribulation Bible Verses refresher. So, God will bring one third of His people through fire as to purify them by allowing them to endure Great Tribulation. This requires a ... When is the Great Tribulation Bible Verses Trivia Time. Many ask the question, why would God allow His Christian believers to die during the End Times? The Truth is that Christians have been dying for the Christian cause for two thousand years.

The one third of those who will be brought through fire as to be purified are those Christians who were left behind. You may wonder, why is this? Why do Christians have to be tested so? After all, Jesus died for our sins. Let's take a field trip way back to the Book of Genesis:

Genesis 6:1-8

1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
3 And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6 And it repented the Lord that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart.
7 And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

When is the Great Tribulation Bible Verses Explained

First off, you must understand that there are different kinds of Angels. There are those who were created as Angels, and those who were once human and become Angels. If you would like to research more about this, check out the Angels Study, and Book of Enoch (in particular, Chapters 6, 7, 8, 15 & 16), but I'd like to share with you a little summary of what this selection from Genesis is talking about.

According to both Genesis and the book of Enoch ... Some Angels, called the watchers of heaven, decided to leave their Heavenly home because they thought the grass was greener down on earth, so to speak. They took wives of human women and taught them secret charms and enchantments ... In other words, they taught them secrets or supernatural powers that Angels possess, that humans weren't meant to know. The children that came from these fallen Angels and human women were the giants spoken of in Genesis and these giants consumed all the food that was available.

When men could no longer provide food for them, they began to devour mankind, animals, then finally, one another.The dead souls of the giants, became evil spirits, which wander the earth to this very day, seeking human bodies with weak souls so that they can dwell in these bodies as to experience foul things again. Most people don't think that evil spirits exist unless they see an extreme case of a person who is possessed, but they're all around us, each and every day, looking for opportunity to cause us to sin. So, now you can understand a little better, why God was so upset with all the evil that was going on down here on earth, that He decided to send the Great Flood to start things afresh.

But, let's get back to the original Great Tribulation Bible question. Why do one third of the Christians have to be tested so? Well, if you were in God's position, wouldn't you want to be absolutely, positively sure that anyone you allowed to be an Angel, wouldn't do the same thing or anything remotely similar to what those fallen Angels did? Could that be why one third has to be purified? Perhaps they're those who accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior, but they have a few little faults of one kind or another that need work. The Book of Daniel confirms that many will be purified:

Daniel 12:10

Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

One more interesting Great Tribulation Bible verses thing to note about these one third events. In the next two verses from Revelation, we find that one third of the stars (Angels) from Heaven were cast down to earth.

Revelation 12:3-4

3 And there appeared another wonder in Heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars [stars are the symbol for Angels in the Book of Revelation] of Heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

When is the Great Tribulation and What are the Signs

Who do you suppose is going to take the place of those one third of the Heavenly Angels? Could it be those who die in the name of Christ, who you read about on Page 3 of this study? If you've died in the name of Christ during the End Times, you've definitely been brought through fire and been purified and made white and as is shared in the Angel Study.

Now, who will be given white robes become as an Angel?

Revelation 3:4-5

4 Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.
5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the Book of Life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before His Angels.

Revelation 3:18

I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

Revelation 6:11

And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

Revelation 7:9

After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;

Revelation 7:13-14

13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

Awesome huh?

If that answer to the question of why would God have us die for Him does not seem to be a worthy reason, I have one more reason why ...

He died for us!

Now, you know what will be going on outside of the camps of the believers who the Lord is protecting. We will take a closer look at what the believers are doing for 3½ years.
