Indications that the Tribulation is Near

The first part of the tribulation unfolds in this generation. The second part of the tribulation, including the Return of Jesus, does not occur until several generations from now, in the distant future. The Antichrist and the worst sufferings of the tribulation do not occur until that later time. Whosoever claims that the Antichrist is in the world today, or that Jesus will return for this generation, is a false prophet.

Indications that the start of the first part of the tribulation is near:

(in no particular order)

* the spread of Islamic extremism
* the increase in terrorism and extreme violence
* Iran’s progress in obtaining nuclear weapons
* the success of ISIS (ISIL) in conquering territory

* the increased sinfulness in the world
* the approval, in culture and law, for grave sins
* the claim that grave sins are actually rights and freedoms
* the spread and approval of every kind of grave sexual sin

* the decline of morals among Mass-going Communion-receiving Catholics
* the rise of false teachers within the Church (wolves in sheep’s clothing)
* the rapid progress toward a conservative schism
* the latent progress toward a liberal schism

* the 100th anniversary of the apparitions at Fatima is approaching (2017)

One Response to Indications that the Tribulation is Near

  1. Matt says:

    I hope the secrets do not begin until 2033. The dates fit perfectly with 2016 except it is not an even year. Frankly, I know the World right now needs God’s direct intervention to save as many souls as possible from Hell but very few truly understand the dramatic change in our daily lives and the suffering each one of us will have to endure during the Tribulations. I can’t imagine that the Tribulations going on from 2017 (next possible start date) to 2040 or even 2021 (another possible start date) to 2040. That’s at least 19 years of much suffering and death. I think 2033 to 2040 is that short period that Jesus stated in Matthew {24:22} “And unless those days had been shortened, no flesh would be saved. But for the sake of the elect, those days shall be shortened.” 2033 is 17 years from now and it may seem a long time from now but as we all know time flies!
