The Great Tribulation. What is it?

The Great Tribulation, not what you think.

The Great Tribulation is a 'timed event'. As in past Patterns of Prophecy, "Jehovah will not do a thing Unless he has revealed his confidential matter to his servants the prophets." (Amos 3:7) Jehovah's servants where given insight to a Prophecy regarding the sudden arrival of the Messiah to inspect the Temple in 29 CE in the Book of Daniel. In 29 CE the people were in expectation and all of them were reasoning in their hearts about John, “May he perhaps be the Christ?” (Luke 3:15) This timed event {prophecy} was thus fulfilled in its entirety from 29 CE to 36 CE. The prophecy gave specific information that the Messiah would be cut off with Nothing for himself in the middle of that 70th week. Jesus Christ was put to death on Nisan 14th 33 CE. Prophecy Fulfilled ~~~> Notice the method of HOW the Son of Man would have been to put to death in order to fulfill a 'specific prophecy'?

If there is one thing you take away from this article, gain the understanding that Prophecies have a beginning and an end. With this understanding, you can SEE our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ coming with the clouds. The sacred secret of understanding prophecy is the slow revealing of it called the manifestation. Therefore, in response the Jews said to him: “What sign can you show us, since you are doing these things?”  Jesus replied to them: “Tear down this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” (John 2:18-19) The Jews then said: “This temple was built in 46 years, and will you raise it up in three days?”  But he was talking about the temple of his body. (John 2:20-21)

Apostates and Opposers of Jesus Christ have sown false stories about his death and resurrection which have been spread down to this day. One false story is that Jesus really never died but went to Heaven with the thief that same day. The other false story is that Jesus resurrected his own fleshy body. Both stories reject the Death of Christ and that God raised Jesus from the DEAD. "For among the first things I handed on to you was what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures;  and that he was buried, yes, that he was raised up on the third day according to the Scriptures;  and that he appeared to Ceʹphas, and then to the Twelve." (1 Corinthians 15:3)

According to the Jewish Custom, sacrifices to God had to be properly dressed to be deemed acceptable. Mary Magdalene, a faithful follower of Jesus Christ knew this about the Jewish Custom. "So when the Sabbath was over, Mary Magʹda·lene, Mary the mother of James, and Sa·loʹme bought spices in order to come and apply them to his body. (Mark 16:1) She did not know that a secret disciple along with a member of the Sanhedrin properly dressed the body of Jesus with 100 lbs of spices. The account goes on and says, "Now after these things, Joseph of Ar·i·ma·theʹa, who was a disciple of Jesus but a secret one because of his fear of the Jews, asked Pilate if he could take away the body of Jesus, and Pilate gave him permission. So he came and took the body away.  Nic·o·deʹmus, the man who had come to him in the night the first time, also came, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes weighing about a hundred pounds.  So they took the body of Jesus and wrapped it in linen cloths with the spices, according to the burial custom of the Jews.  Incidentally, there was a garden at the place where he was executed, and in the garden was a new tomb in which no one had ever yet been laid.  Because it was the day of Preparation of the Jews and the tomb was nearby, they laid Jesus there." (John 19:38-42)

When Mary Magdalene approached the burial tomb of Jesus Christ, she did not dress the wounds on the body of Jesus Christ. WHY? "Christ died once for all time for sins, a righteous person for unrighteous ones, in order to lead you to God. He was put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit." (1 Peter 3:18) To take back his flesh would nullify the sacrifice given. "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,  and it is as a free gift that they are being declared righteous by his undeserved kindness through the release by the ransom paid by Christ Jesus." (Romans 3:23-24) So when he comes into the world, he says: “‘Sacrifice and offering you did not want, but you prepared a body for me.  You did not approve of whole burnt offerings and sin offerings.’  Then I said: ‘Look! I have come (in the scroll it is written about me) to do your will, O God.’” (Hebrews 10:5-7) "By this “will” we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all time." (Hebrews 10:10) Therefore, Mary Magdalene thought Jesus Christ was the Gardener when speaking to him. "Mary, however, kept standing outside near the tomb, weeping. While she was weeping, she stooped forward to look into the tomb, and she saw two angels in white sitting where the body of Jesus had been lying, one at the head and one at the feet.  And they said to her: “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them: “They have taken my Lord away, and I do not know where they have laid him.”  After saying this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus.  Jesus said to her: “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you looking for?” She, thinking it was the gardener, said to him: “Sir, if you have carried him off, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.”  Jesus said to her: “Mary!” On turning around, she said to him in Hebrew: “Rab·boʹni!” (which means “Teacher!”)  Jesus said to her: “Stop clinging to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father and to my God and your God.’” (John 20:11-17)

Since we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all time (Hebrews 10:10) which body was Jesus Christ referring too? The Body of Christ is a Spiritual One made up of 144,000 Body Members. (Rev 7:4) Notice the following Command given to the Angels. “Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees, until after we have sealed the slaves of our God in their foreheads.” (Rev 7:3) This Prophecy along with the Prophecy that Jesus Christ uttered at (John 2:19) go hand and in hand and undergo fulfillment simultaneously. Both Prophecies have been undergoing fulfillment since Pentecost 33 CE unnoticed by the world. "If, in fact, the good news we declare is veiled, it is veiled among those who are perishing, among whom the god of this system of things has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, so that the illumination of the glorious good news about the Christ, who is the image of God, might not shine through." (2 Corinthians 4:3-4)

Jesus replied to them: “Tear down this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” (John 2:19) How long is a day? "However, do not let this escape your notice, beloved ones, that one day is with Jehovah as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day." (2 Peter 3:8)

According to (Rev 7:3) the winds of the Great Tribulation are held back until after we have sealed the slaves of our God in their foreheads. If a day is a thousand years, we can glean the meaning of when the prophecy to be fulfilled. The sealing event began with the outpouring of Holy Spirit on Pentecost 33 CE and would be completed by 2033 CE, the second day. This sealing event would pave the way for the Great Tribulation to take place. It would also pave the way for the Preaching Work to be brought to its End. In fulfillment of Prophecy, Jesus stated that a work would need to be done. "And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come." (Matthew 24:14)

Another Prophecy that points to the year 2034 for the Salvation of Jehovah's Servants goes on to say. "He will revive us after two days. On the third day he will raise us up, And we will live before him. We will know, we will earnestly seek to know Jehovah. His going out is as certain as the dawn; He will come to us like a pouring rain, Like a spring rain that saturates the earth.” (Hosea 6:2-3) After two days, on the third day he will raise us up. The third day of Christ is upon us in 2034. However, the Great Tribulation is not what you think. Did you notice how this Day unfolds? We will live before him. We will know, we will earnestly seek to know Jehovah. His going out is as certain as the dawn; He will come to us like a pouring rain, Like a spring rain that saturates the earth. Are you gaining Spiritual Insight?

So what Scripture is the trigger for the Great Tribulation? "Whenever it is that they are saying, “Peace and security!” then sudden destruction is to be instantly on them, just like birth pains on a pregnant woman, and they will by no means escape." (1 Thessalonians 5:3)

The Great Tribulation is an outbreak of “Peace and security!” It's Spiritual. This scripture is actually an inspired expression from the demons to persuade the masses into destruction. "And I saw three unclean inspired expressions that looked like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the wild beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet." (Rev 16:13) Since the false prophet has a part in deceiving the people in a false proclamation of prosperity, false religion will be brought to her end by the means of the wild beast that are the earthly political kings. Gog of Magog.

Through the demonic expression of “Peace and security!” notice how the destruction is to be instantly on them. "They are, in fact, expressions inspired by demons and they perform signs, and they go out to the kings of the entire inhabited earth, to gather them together to the war of the great day of God the Almighty." (Rev 16:14)

"We know that we originate with God, but the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one." (1 John 5:19) Those who choose to alienate themselves from Jehovah God and continue to reject Christ Presence will be destroyed by dying the second death, just like birth pains on a pregnant woman, they will by no means escape. Not only is the Great Tribulation Spiritual, so is Armageddon, the war of the great day of God the Almighty. Sometime after 2034, the wicked will witness our brothers and sisters living pass the 70 or 80 years. "All the peoples of the earth will have to see that Jehovah’s name has been called upon you, and they will be afraid of you." (Deuteronomy 28:10)

After the wicked witness our brothers and sisters surviving beyond the 70 or 80 years, Gog of Magog, that is Satan's entire Political Systems will come to bring harm to Jehovah's Witnesses. "And I will send fire against Maʹgog and against those who are inhabiting the islands in security, and they will have to know that I am Jehovah.  I will make my holy name known among my people Israel, and I will not allow my holy name to be profaned any longer; and the nations will have to know that I am Jehovah, the Holy One in Israel. Yes, this is coming, and it will be done,’ declares the Sovereign Lord Jehovah. ‘This is the day I have spoken about." (Ezekiel 39:6-8)
