Tribulation Preview
By Hal Lindsey

Forces from within are weakening the United States even as the world economy falters. Inflation is rising almost everywhere. The nations who once stood for human rights and dignity grow more and more willing to suppress rights in exchange for the promise of “peace and safety.” People are afraid.

More every day, these look like the times described in the Bible as happening just before the second coming of Jesus Christ.

In biblical terms the seven years preceding Christ’s return are known as Daniel’s 70th week. But most Christians refer to those years as simply “the tribulation.” The Bible teaches that several things must happen before the tribulation begins. They include the rapture of the church followed by the antichrist’s rise to prominence.

We know a great deal about what will happen in the tribulation and what the world will look like in those days. Even though we are not in the tribulation, we see the world looking more and more like it will during that time. From here, it can happen with exceeding speed.

The tribulation will be a time of judgments upon the earth. Those judgements will begin with the famous “four horsemen of the apocalypse.” Revelation 6:2 (NASB) says, “And I looked, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him; and he went out conquering, and to conquer.”

That first horseman will be antichrist presenting himself as a false messiah to the world. He will conquer by bringing the world into a single monetary system headed by himself. The verse mentions a bow, but no arrows. He will conquer without firing a shot. When a desperate world sees his seemingly miraculous Middle East peace treaty, it will be as if he pulled the sword from the stone, and they will quickly give him their kingdoms.

The desperation we see now is a prelude to the extreme desperation that will enable him to conquer the world with amazing ease.

But the era of peace, safety, and international cooperation will be brief. The underlying antagonisms will remain. For instance, Iran, Russia, and Turkey will still hate Israel. The arrival of the second horseman marks the removal of peace from the earth. It means war.

Next comes the black horse, destroying lives and economies with hyperinflation. Then arrives the pale horse, leaving death in its wake. And those are just the beginning of tribulation’s judgments.

The hurricane has not arrived. But the wind has picked up, and it’s beginning to rain. The barometric pressure is dropping. And in the distance, we see a dark, threatening sky. It’s a good time to draw close to the Lord and His word, and to spread that word everywhere. We stand remarkably close to the culmination of this age, and the beginning of something glorious.

I love reading and listening to Hal Lindsay. He makes so much sense. I watch him Saturday nights at 11 pm on Daystar. His book The Late Great Planet Earth seemed to open the eyes of the watchers of our age. It's hard to believe, but I read that he is 93 years old.

Mr. Lindsay was one of the influences in my life that eventually brought me to Christ. I read his book Late Great Planet Earth as a young teen and even when I was I deep in addiction as a young man, I would watch his show on TBN and was equally parts utterly fascinated and utterly terrified because in my heart, even though I was not ready to put my sinful life style behind me, I knew he was right.

I so hope he lives to see the Rapture of the Church in his lifetime!

Yes, storm getting closer and the hand of the Restrainer is slowly easing....
It's a little like viewing the trailer for a new movie that's just now coming out. A movie trailer is intended to make people want to pay money and go see the whole show. The Tribulation trailer we've been seeing is designed to make people want to 'avoid' the whole show. That's an opportunity for the body of Christ to share the gospel, the only way for anyone to 'not' go through the tribulation period.

Just an update on Hal Lindsay's Daystar show, he's been teaching through the book of John, which he finished last week. This past Sunday nite, he started on the book of Revelations. It was very interesting. Just in case anyone is interested.
