When King Jesus described the Great Tribulation in Matthew 24, He said, “when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door”.
He also said, “Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.” IMO, that is a clear warning that we are “at the door” of the Great Tribulation. I believe and hope that the Rapture will happen first, but as ME believers can testify, life can become vicious before the Rapture. Certainly American Christians see evidence every day of the increasing hatred in America for Christians, God, and Christian faith. We will be harassed, and there’s no guarantee that we will not suffer every horror that ME Christians are suffering right now.
Most wars in the world have NOT been between Right and Left, or even globalists and nationalists. They have been part of the struggle between Righteousness and Evil, between Truth and lies. And behind even that, the war is between God and Satan. This is still not clear to some, and will not be until the Beast sets up the image of himself in Jerusalem and demands that he be worshiped as God.
The new factor in current events is this: an era of history is about to end. Remember the disciples’ question in Matthew 24:3: “…when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”
