54 )  Dates and Chronology of the Tribulation (42 & 42+2.5 months) and the Great Tribulation (42+2.5 months)


According to Daniel (7-25,9-27,12-7 & 11) ; Revelation (11-2,12-6 & 14,13-5) and Matthew 24, 1 & 2 Thessalonians


Beginning of the Tribulation

1 Thessalonians 4-16 For the Lord Himself, at a given signal, at the voice of an archangel, and at the sound of the trumpet of God, will come down from heaven, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive, who are left, shall be caught together with us in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.

2 Thessalonians 2-6 And now you know what retains the anti-Christ, so that it only appears in its time. 7 For the mystery of iniquity is already working ; it is only necessary that the one who retains him still has disappeared. 8 And then shall the ungodly appear, whom the Lord Jesus shall destroy by the breath of his mouth, and destroy by the brightness of his coming. 9 The appearance of this ungodly man will be by the power of Satan with all manner of miracles, false signs and wonders, 10 and with all the seductions of iniquity ...

Daniel 9-27 He will make a strong covenant with many for a week (7 times of 360 days), and during the middle of the week he will stop the sacrifice and the offering ; the devastator will commit the most abominable things, until ruin and what has been writen fall on the devastator.

Revelation 11-6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she had a place prepared by God, that she might feed there a thousand two hundred and sixty days (1260 days) ... 14 And the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she would fly away to the desert, to her place, where she is nourished a time, times, and half a time (3.5 x 360 = 1260 days), far from the face of the snake.

Revelation 13-5 And the beast was given a mouth that uttered arrogant words and blasphemies ; and she was given the power to act for forty-two months (42 months of 30 days = 1260 days) 6 And she opened her mouth to utter blasphemies against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and those who live in Heaven.


Middle (Beginning of the Great Tribulation)

2 Thessalonians 2-3 Let no man deceive you in any way ; for the apostasy must have come before, and that the man of sin can appear, the son of perdition, the adversary that rises above all that is called God, from what we worship, until to sit down in the temple of God, proclaiming Himself God.

Daniel 7-25 He will speak words against the Most High, he will oppress the saints of the Most High, and he will hope to change the times and the law ; and the saints will be delivered into his hands for a time, times, and half a time (3.5 x 360 = 1260 days). 26 And the judgment will come, and his dominion will be taken away from him, destroyed and annihilated forever.

Daniel 9-27 ... and during the middle of the week he will stop the sacrifice and the offering ;

Matthew 24-8 All this will be only the beginning of the pains. 9 Then you will be delivered to torments, and they will kill you ; and you shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. 10 Then also many will succumb, and they will betray one another, and hate one another. 11 Many false prophets will arise, and they will deceive many. 12 And because the iniquity will be increased, the charity of the greater number will grow colder. 13 But he who perseveres to the end, shall be saved. 14 This good news of the kingdom will be preached throughout the world, to serve as a witness to all nations. Then will come the end. 15 Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by the prophet Daniel, established in the holy place, let him who reads be careful ! 16 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains ; 17 He who is on the housetop do not come down to take what is in his house ; 18 and he who is in the field should not turn back to take his cloak. 19 Woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are breastfeeding in those days ! 20 Pray that your flight will not come in winter, nor on a Sabbath. 21 For then trouble shall be so great that there is none like it from the beginning of the world until now, and there shall never be. 22 And if these days were not shortened, no one would be saved ; but because of the elects, these days will be shortened. 23 If anyone says to you then : Christ is here, or He is here, do not believe him. 24 For there will arise false Christs and false prophet ; they will perform great wonders and miracles, to the point of seducing, if possible, even the elects. 25 Behold, I have told you beforehand... 39 and they didn't know until the flood came,… 

1 Thessalonians 5-3 For when they are saying, "Peace and safety," then sudden destruction will come on them, … and they will in no way escape.

Revelation 11-2 But the outer court of the temple, leave it outside, and measure it not ; for it was given to the nations, and they will trample on the holy city for forty-two months (42 months of 30 days = 1260 days).

Daniel 12-6 ... When will be the end of these wonders ? 7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, who was standing above the waters of the river ; he lifted up his right hand and left hand to the heavens, and swore by him who lives eternally that it will be in a time, times, and half a time (3.5 x 360 = 1260 days), and that all these things will end when the strength of the holy people is completely broken.

Revelation 7-9 After this I looked, and behold, there was a great crowd, which no one could count, of every nation, and of every tribe, and of every people, and of every tongue. And they stood before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and palms in their hands. 13 And one of the elders answered and said to me, These are clothed in white robes, which are they and where did they come from ? 14 And I said to him : My lord, you know it. And he said to me, These are those who come out of the great tribulation ; they have washed their robes, and they have whitened them in the blood of the lamb.

Matthew 24-27 For as lightning goes from the east to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man ... 29 Immediately after these days of trouble, (perhaps before the end of 1260 days) the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give its light, the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.


End of the Great Tribulation

Matthew 24-27 For as the lightning goes from the east to the west, so will be the coming of the Son of man ... 29 And immediately after these days of trouble, (Maybe from 1260 to 1335 days) the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give its light, the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then shall the sign of the Son of Man appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he shall send his angels with the trumpet of sound, and they shall gather his elects from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. 36 As for the day and the hour, no one knows it, nor the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone. 37 And what happened in the days of Noah will happen to the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood men were eating and drinking, marrying, and marrying their children, until the day that Noah entered the ark ; 39 And they knew nothing until the flood came and carried them all away ; so will the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Then of two men in one field, one will be taken and the other left ; 41 of two women grinding at the mill, one will be taken and the other left. 42 Watch therefore, since you do not know which day your Lord will come ... 44 Therefore, you too, be ready, for the Son of Man will come at a time when you will not think of it.

2 Thessalonians 2-8 ... the Lord Jesus will destroy the anti-Christ by the breath of his mouth, and annihilate it with the brightness of his coming.

Daniel 12-11 From the time when the perpetual sacrifice ceases, and where the abomination of the devastator will be erected, there will be one thousand two hundred and ninety days (1290 = 1260 + 30jrs). 12 Blessed is he who will wait, and who will come to 1335 days ! (Day of the Lord: 1335 = 1260 + 2,5x30jrs?)


Zechariah 14-6 In that day there will be no light ; There will be cold and ice. 7 It will be a unique day, known to the LORD,

And it will be neither day nor night ; but towards evening the light will appear.
