How the Great Tribulation Will Unfold
God tells us in Daniel 12 that the words of Daniel, which are key along with Revelation to unlocking all latter day prophecy: were SEALED up from understanding until the very end.
That means that even godly men including the prophets themselves, could not understand these things until there was a need to know in the latter days. God himself tells Daniel through His angel that these things CANNOT be understood by anyone until the very end.
Of course many have come and gone thinking that they were living in the latter days and that they understood these things. Yet the years have passed and it turns out that they were not living in the latter days after all: Which means that the prophetic books were still sealed during the lifetimes of these writers and therefore what they wrote about the prophets CANNOT be true: So said Almighty God through His angel to Daniel.
The end times begin when the prophesied events begin to unfold and there is a definite “Need to Know”. Any person writing 50 or 70 years or more before these things – no matter how sincere – must be sincerely wrong: So says the Word of God!
Right now it is obvious to almost every converted person that we are extremely close and the final events are at the door, yet many cannot understand the prophets because they reject God’s PROMISE of unsealing the prophets and expanding scriptural knowledge in the latter days; in order to cling for dear life onto past teachings that by their very age CANNOT be correct!
God tells us that those who do not love the truth will be allowed to delude themselves, and will fall into severe correction.
Those who will not let go of traditions many decades old – which God says CANNOT be true – and reject the increase in knowledge which God has promised us: are doomed to be caught in their errors and rejection of God’s Word.
The scriptures tell us that the woman – the brethren – fled into the wilderness two times for 1,260 days each time; which totals 2,520 days or seven years, or the full 70th week of Daniel 9. For a detailed explanation of the 70th Week, please see the article: The 70 Weeks Prophecy Part 2: The 70th Week and the Great Tribulation
The first half of the week was fulfilled when the brethren fled to Pella before the siege of Jerusalem c 66-67 A.D. The second half of the week is to be fulfilled when the brethren again flee probably to Pella [no not Petra] immediately before the tribulation in our day.
The point being: That the first 42 months have ALREADY been fulfilled and that there will NOT be a 3 1/2 year period between a peace deal and the onset of the tribulation.
When the abomination – man of sin – is set up doing miracles in the Vatican, he will go to the Temple Mount in about 75 days and the tribulation will begin immediately with the occupation of Jerusalem (Mat 24:15).
We are also told that when peace and safety is declared as having been achieved, sudden [Strong’s: meaning non-apparent; unexpected, i.e. (adverbially) suddenly:–sudden, unawares, unforseen] destruction will come (1 Thess 5:3).
Yet in spite of all these things the leaders of LCG and COGWA as well as many in UCG actually believe that after a peace deal is made they will still have 3 1/2 years before the tribulation begins.
Because these men have no regard for the sanctity of the Sabbath and many other things in God’s Word, and because they love their own pet ideas and the false traditions of idols of men more than they love the truth, they deceive themselves and will fall into great tribulation.
In the past many people without understanding – because the prophets were sealed – spoke of instant nuclear devastation for America and many dramatic horrifying things in an effort to scare people into sending them more money.
What is coming is indeed terrible, but it will not be instant nuclear destruction; instead it will be a cascading, escalating collapse of the nation over 3 1/2 years.
These people are ignorant of the truth, because they cling to past errors and reject the truth being revealed.
It is written that when Christ comes he will catch many by surprise: Could this be because in spite of all the horrors as events unfold, even when Jerusalem is occupied and other events take place, many of these folks will be in denial because their preconceived false notions have not happened and America was not immediately nuked?
Events in the Tribulation
There is going to be a military crisis in the world which will bring a plan for a New World Order, placing a strong independent Europe as a balance between east and west. This has been plotted by the Judeo Anglo American establishment for decades now, and they expect to control this new entity; however God will intervene and Satan will rise up to fight God (Daniel 12 and Revelation 12).
Satan will be defeated and cast back down to the earth, and the Judeo Anglo American establishment will lose control so that God’s Word will be fulfilled. This war in heaven is spiritual and we may see no sign of this on the earth, but it has been recorded for our instruction concerning the overall events, and to encourage us that God is far mightier than Satan.
When Satan is cast down he will empower his man of sin in the Vatican with the ability to do miracles which has been restrained until that time.
This man of sin will be seen as a great man of peace and will be looked to as an ultimate moral authority by nearly all religions including Muslims, mainstream Judaism and professing Christians.
The New World Order plan will already exist at least on paper, but it will be this miracle worker and the deceptive power of Satan which will cause the nations to agree to the plan.
The New Europe will probably be given the massive quantities of American military supplies already prepositioned in Europe, making Europe an instant superpower while seriously reducing American military strength.
This new Europe being a Catholic creation will be allied to all the Catholic nations including Latin America, and will also quickly become allied with Turkey and the Islamic nations (Psalm 83) except for Egypt, which will remain in the Judeo American orbit for a very short time longer.
Along with the rise of Europe there will be a general peace deal which will include the Middle East. This peace deal will bring many peacekeepers into Palestine and around Jerusalem from various nations including a strong Turkish contingent (Psalm 83).
When peace and safety is declared and this pope goes to the temple mount approximately 75 days after being set up in the Vatican doing miracles, the Settlement Movement Jews will sabotage the deal.
Mainstream Judaism will approve the peace deal but the minority Settler Movement people will sabotage the peace.
The Fifth Book of Moses tells us plainly that possession of the land is entirely dependent on living by every Word of God, which neither Israel nor the Jews do today.
God tells us that because of our sins God will give us over to the enemy for our correction.
When the peace is broken, the Turks and neighboring nations will pour into Jerusalem and Judea, because God has given them over to severe correction.
There will be a tremendous bloodbath as Palestinians enraged after decades of mistreatment, give out much more than they received.
The New Europe will be forced to act in the name of peace to secure the Israeli nuclear weapons and main military sites, and the mainstream Jews might well beg Europe to stop the blood bath.
European forces will secure areas and herd Jews into those ghettos for their own safety, and will begin to deport them from Palestine to other nations at the insistence of the Palestinians, Turks and local nations, completely reversing the Jewish movement into Palestine of the past one hundred years.
Despite the slaughter and deportations many Jews will remain in Jerusalem and Judea when Messiah comes 42 months after Jerusalem first falls, but it is possible that most Jews will be removed from north of Jerusalem; which will make way for the return of the ten tribes when Christ comes.
The Fall of America
The United States has been over spending at a furious rate for decades now and the only thing saving the dollar and the US economy is the use of the dollar as the world’s international reserve currency, especially in energy transactions where it is widely known as the Petro Dollar.
For the past two decades America has also sought to internationalize its economy with the goal of creating an interdependent world controlled by the Judeo Anglo American Establishment.
These two things are now America’s Achilles Heel.
Scripture tell us that the tribulation will begin with the occupation of Jerusalem and Judea, and while we are told that Israel – primarily the US and Britain – will fall with Judah (Hosea 5:5); nowhere does the scripture say that the US will be nuked and instantly destroyed, or even occupied.
This idea is absolutely wrong, for the scriptures do say that Israel will fall in a process over 3 1/2 years.
Daniel 12:7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half [42 months]; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
Over the past few years the present world financial system has been slowly readjusted from being solely dependent on the US Dollar, to a basket of currencies and Special Drawing Rights. This may be further adjusted over time but the situation is now already set up for a departure from the dollar.
Once the New Europe is set up, and in Palestine the surrounding nations rush in on a Jewish State from which God has withdrawn his protection, there will be a bloodbath.
Many of the mainstream Jews will urgently call for international intervention to stop that blood bath, at the same time it would be imperative for international forces to act immediately to secure the Israeli nuclear arsenal and massive stockpiles of armaments.
European forces will move to carry out those tasks, very probably with the consent of the US and mainstream Jewry.
How will God bring America down?
The Muslim countries would be grateful to Europe and would agree with its ruler to abandon the US Dollar as the Petro Dollar, and to use the Euro [or any possible new European currency] for all their energy and international transactions.
The Catholic nations [I am thinking of Latin America] as well as Asian nations would quickly jump to follow suite – if they want to buy energy – and that would bring the end of the US Dollar and economic collapse with all its attendant catastrophes would come to the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Britain.
For example the inability to import oil or other products upon which the US has become dependent, would result in a cascading collapse of the ability to grow food; as well as distribute food, medicine and other essentials.
No more water bombing wild fires, no more emergency help in case of hurricane, tornado, earthquake or flood. Riots are coming over race and limited resources – especially food – that will make Watts seem like a picnic.
Thinking of the National Petroleum Reserve?
The maximum total withdrawal capability from the SPR is only 4.4 million barrels per day (700,000 m3/d), so the entire inventory would be exhausted in 158 days, or about five months.
If oil imports were interrupted due to a collapse of the dollar, the United States would have less than one half of its daily import needs [or 3/4ths of its consumption needs] for only about five months.
After that, emergency oil supplies would run out and consumption would have to be reduced to the approximately 9 million bpd of domestic production, or about one half of the present rate of consumption.
This does not take into account the possibility of interruptions in domestic production which would be quite likely in a chaotic environment.
Here is a short quote from our “Bible Prophecy” book:
“Take away those welfare cheques and food stamps; cut off the flow of cocaine from the noses of, and end the flow of heroin into the veins of millions; take the fuel out of the cars and the food out of the mouths of the masses; then see what happens.
Riots will further disrupt any remaining distribution centers and overwhelm medical facilities, which will already be overwhelmed by a population weakened with hunger and afflicted with many diseases. The escape of deliberately engineered diseases in the turmoil and then entering the population cannot be discounted.
Little fuel to plow, till, sow, cultivate, harvest, process and transport crops; and much of what is sown will be lost to drought, pests and disease, or be demanded by the victors bringing starvation to the masses.
A starving population will be afflicted by diseases such as influenza, or one of the more modern treatment resistant diseases. Mass epidemics, and depleted medical facilities will not be able to cope; hence massive deaths from disease and pestilence.
Pestilence is the crop eating insects and rodents that eat the crops in the fields and will enter the storage bins and eat up much of the stored foodstuffs while spreading disease as well.
Judah shall be occupied for three and one half years while America will collapse over a period of three and one half years.
In the third year God will begin to deliver us as Europe goes to war against Asia; and at the end of three and one half years Messiah the Christ will come”.

America can be brought down without a single shot being fired by Europe!
As America collapses she will no longer be able to support her client states like Ethiopia and Egypt and they will come under the control of Europe.
After the Feast I intend to begin studies through the Major Prophets and there will be much information on the why and how of the tribulation.
