I. What is The Great Tribulation?

It is seven (7) years of worldwide hardship that the unbelievers of Jesus Christ will suffer on the earth, before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ takes place. It’s starts immediately after the Rapture of the church.
There will be world wide disasters, famine, war, pain, and suffering. On a scale never before seen.
The Time it will take place.
Immediately after The Rapture,
Receiving of our New Glorified Body
Revelation 4:1–2 KJV 1900
1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. 2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
