APOCALYPSE NOW : THE FINAL 7 YEAR TRIBULATION
Many of the upcoming 'horrors' of the final and upcoming Tribulation period of 7 years have already happened on planet Earth 'here and there' on a 'limited basis' on planet Earth throughout human history. What separates and distinguishes the upcoming Final 7 Year Tribulation Period from all other epochs of human history here on planet Earth is that GOD ALMIGHTY is going to unleash 21 judgments 'one after another' on an unrepentant and rebellious world. In today's article this student of Bible Prophecy will try to demonstrate that if 'human history' is any guide most of humanity doesn't stand a chance to what is coming upon planet Earth in our lifetime.
Some : secular humanists, atheists and others who have made human governments 'their god' truly believe that the best of humanity 'shines through' during the greatest of catastrophes. If what happened on August 2005 in New Orleans during hurricane Katrina is any guide to the unpreparedness of the U.S. Government and FEMA, then those who truly believe that the government is ready for what is coming are deceiving themselves. Additionally, what also happened in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina was that even most : policemen, firemen and other safety officers literally abandoned their jobs and posts in order to help and save their own families; because when anyone senses that the end of their world is at hand most men behave like animals; survival at any cost is the primordial and instinctive goal and not concern for their neighbors and fellow human beings.
This student of Bible Prophecy and World History would like to believe that the 'best of humanity' will shine during the Tribulation period "BUT" most of humanity is selfish and what is deep inside the human heart will ultimately come out during that future hour which is surely coming upon all those who dwell on planet Earth. Satan himself who has studied mankind for centuries observed the selfishness of man 'skin for skin' a man will give everything he has to save his own life ( Job 2 : 4 ) GOD Almighty the HOLY GOD of Israel is going to 'TEST' all those who belong to this corrupt world and who have rejected : His Holy WORD, His Commandements and His only Son : JESUS CHRIST . ( Revelation 3 : 10 )
The Book of Revelation guarantees 21 sequential judgements from GOD Almighty during the upcoming 7 year Tribulation period ( 7 seals, 7 Trumpets, 7 Bowls ) these 21 judgements will overwhelm most of the nations on planet Earth, it will be like having one major global catastrophe after another every 3 months for 7 years !!! Insurance companies are going to collapse, governments are going to collapse, Corporations are going to collapse, entire economies are going to collapse and that is why the 10 King's of Revelation are going to unite with one goal in mind amidst an entire planet on the brink of total chaos !!! Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself stated that heart attacks alone would kill many during that period !!! ( Men's hearts failing them for fear , and for looking after those things which are coming upon the Earth !!! ( Luke 21 : 26 )
A Modern Holocaust : From April to July in 1994 in Rwanda, Africa almost one million Tutsi's were murdered, it was a modern genocide and the United Nations who did have a military presence in the country literally abandoned the Tutsi minority. This student of Bible Prophecy reminds everyone of this because some 'naive fools' truly believe that the United Nations is going to save the world one day, the truth is that the UN is a Beast with no teeth !!! According to Bible Prophecy more Holocausts are coming and just like almost no country did anything to stop the holocaust of one million people not too long ago in Rwanda the same will be true of the holocaust's that are coming; that is why the state of Israel has every right to have a nuclear program. Most have nations of this planet have so many 'ethnic problems' of their own that they cannot afford to help other nations as it is. History has shown us that there is "NO" 'peace and security' in trusting others for the security of one's own nation, most of the nations of this planet did "NOT" do much to help the Jews during the Holocaust and most of the nations also did "NOT" do much to stop the genocide that took place in 1994 in Rwanda, Africa !!! It is also "NO" secret that ISIS and Boko Harom and other Islamic Terrorist groups are on a genocide drive against all Christians in the Middle East and in North Africa and you don't see the UN nor Obama doing much to stop this genocide against Christians and we are not even in the Tribulation yet !!!
Famines : During the 1980's a series of droughts and heatwaves ( among other things*) created a massive famine throughout several African countries. Millions of African people were starving and it is estimated that eventually over a million ultimately starved to death in just in these two countries of Africa in Ethiopia and Somalia. Fortunately, many world governments and global institutions poured in millions of dollars via food donations, international help was slow to come because African countries lacked good infrastructure and lines of communication and distribution to distribute such a global aid. Additionally, it was no secret that millions of dollars and food aid were stolen by local governments and strongmen in local militias that should have been distributed to the starving people in these African countries. This student of Bible Prophecy wants you to understand that the Global Institutions of the world were extremely slow in ultimately coming to the aid of these starving African countries in the past and he wants you to understand that the Book of Revelation 'guarantees' that a global famine is coming upon planet Earth when the 2nd Horseman of the Apocalypse is unleashed and if history is any guide most of the nations on this planet are "NOT" going to be in any position to share their food supplies during that horrible time.
Nuclear Catastrophe : In April of 1986 the Soviets had a great nuclear accident in Chernobyl and they did "NOT" warn their neighbors. For several days nuclear radiation made its way all the way to Europe. Eventually over 350,000+ people were evacuated and it is no secret that many of those people were exposed to dangerous and lifelong levels of radiation which have severely affected their health and lifespan. On March, 2011 in Fukushima, Japan a great earthquake produced a Tsunami that ultimately led to the nuclear meltdown of its reactors. Since the nuclear accident the Japanese government has led a successful campaign in keeping things under wraps; the truth is that a large part of the Japanese diet ( fish*) has been contaminated by the nuclear radiation that will be present for decades in and around the Japanese Seas. Today in 2016, we now know that all of the technicians who worked inside of those nuclear reactors are all dead due to having absorbed large doses of radiation. This student of Bible Prophecy mentions these two nuclear accidents/incidents to tell you that "NO" government on planet earth is truly prepared for any nuclear war, neither the Soviet Union and Japan were even prepared to deal with a nuclear accident, much less nuclear war and according to the Prophecies of the Holy Bible nuclear war is coming to planet Earth.
Civil Wars : Not many people are aware that one of the largest and deadliest civil wars in history took place in China during the years of 1850-1864, the Taiping Civil War produced some 30 million deaths, most deaths were attributed to famine and plagues that follow any prolonged armed conflict. Presently in 2016, there are numerous ongoing civil wars raging in : South America, Africa, Asia and obviously in the Middle East. These civil wars have the potential to explode into greater conflicts; such as what is happening in Syria and Nigeria. The Tribulation period has "NOT" yet even begun and a large part of this world is already mired in ongoing armed conflicts with no end in sight. It is also "NO" secret that there is already an ongoing civil war in the Islamic religion raging between the Shiites and the Sunnis as to who will dominate the Islamic religion and the Islamic region. The Biblical Prophecies 'guarantee' that the world is going to explode into numerous civil wars during the Tribulation period, even more so than it is now !!! ( Revelation 6 : 4 )
The Rise of Hitler : Amidst economic and military chaos, Germany in 1922-1923 seemed to have no future. Hyperinflation was running amok people were desperate, their elected leader and government had failed them; 'alas' until a survivor of World War I, a man named Adolph Hitler from Austria who was near death on 'two ocassions' was somehow saved from near death and in his heart was something called 'revenge' that kept on growing. This student of Bible Prophecy mentions Hitler because the GOD of the Holy Bible warns us in the Book of Revelation and Daniel, that another one the likes of Hitler will ascend to power during the final days; but only this time he is "NOT" going to make the same mistakes that crippled Hitler conquests during World War II. In the future, the European Union is going to produce yet another totalitarian and he is going to military attack and conquer much of the Middle East; Israel included; just like the ancient Roman Empire did during the time of our Lord Jesus Christ !!!
Economic Collapse : During the years of 1998-2002 the South American country of Argentina went through a great depression. It is now known that the Russian and Brazilian financial crises during the late 1990's directly and indirectly caused the Argentinian economy to go into a tailspin and as a result; massive widespread : unemployment, hyperinflation, riots and the ultimate fall of the government as well as the default on its international loan obligations. The Biblical Prophecies guarantee that what happened to Argentina's economy during the late 1990's is going to repeat itself on a global scale in the future during the 7 year Tribulation period; as it is today in 2016 most of the 190+ sovereign countries on planet Earth are near bankruptcy or their economic system is already pegged to either the U.S. Dollar or the EURO. The 666 Mark of the Beast will be introduced only 'AFTER' the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse make their world tour and this student of Bible Prophecy interprets the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse as the purveyors of World War III.
Spread of Super Viruses: Experts at the Center for Disease Control ( CDC ) know fully well that it is just a matter of time before a new and super strain of : Ebola, Zika and others Viral Diseases will emerge in the future that will have no cure with current vaccines. According to the Biblical Prophecy found in Revelation 6 : 8, The 4th and last 'Pale Horsemen' will produce awful plagues and diseases brought about with the help of wild animals and it is interesting to note that 'Ebola' is a plague that jumps from animals to humans ( transferred from animals to humans*). If there is one thing that every medical Doctor or Historian knows is that shortly after any 'prolonged war' when human bodies are left rotting; diseases quickly begin to spread and that is exactly what will happen when the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse gallop through planet earth in the future during World War III.
In conclusion, this student of Bible Prophecy has shown you through various examples how 'ill prepared' the world is to what is coming upon planet earth in the not so distant future. If history is any guide the vast majority of the nations of this world are "NOT" even closely prepared to ultimately help their citizens when 'all hell breaks loose' during the Tribulation period. In the past virtually all the humanitarian agencies of the world dragged their feet to help those in need. Additionally, bureaucracy, language barriers, indemic corruption at all levels and poor infrastructures did not allow help to reach on a timely basis those most in need. As you can see the United Nations can "NOT" solve most of the global problems and wars that are raging planet Earth right now !!! How can anyone expect them to solve them in the future when according to Bible Prophecy things will only get much, much worse ?
It gives me "NO" pleasure to crunch the numbers and totals; "BUT" according to the Book of Revelation, 25% of the population of this planet perishes solely during the time of the 4 Horsemen, then another 'one-third' of the world's population perishes in Revelation 9 : 14, and when we add all of 7 plagues, 7 bowls and 7 Trumpet judgements 'conservatively speaking' it is estimated that another 20% of the world's population dies from these : plagues, bowl and trumpet judgements; that leaves only some 1.5-2 billion people alive when our Lord Jesus Christ physically returns !!! ( this means that around 80% of the world's population will "NOT" survive all the death and destruction of the 7 year Tribulation period ***)
BY : Mario Romano, this servant of Jesus Christ has been studying the Book of Revelation for years and each time he studies and reads the Book of Revelation he learns something new, it truly is a great blessing to read and keep the words and the message found in the Book of Revelation. This servant of Jesus Christ does "NOT" delight in the death of the wicked nor of the unrepentant sinner; he knows that he too deserves the fire of hell "BUT" because of what Jesus Christ did on the Cross of Calvary he knows that he is saved by the shed blood of Jesus Christ and by the pure grace and mercy of an Almighty and Loving GOD !!!
