Revelation 4:1

"After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven."

Determining the Length of the Tribulation

image 5

For me, how the books of Daniel and Revelation as well as Matthew Chapter 24 tie together, verify that the Bible is accurate, and the divine word of God. As a person who loves mathematics, I prefer to look at the mathematics first to see if the numbers and calculations agree. The best place to begin is in Revelation 11:2 which states "...for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months". Now 42 months is approximately 1260 days (i.e. 42 x 30 = 1260). This number is verified in Revelation 13:5, "and power was given unto him [the beast] to continue forty and two months". When you combine the information from Revelation 11:2 and Revelation 13:5, it can be deduced that the duration of one-half of the tribulation will be 1260 days or approximately 3 and 1/2 years. Therefore, the duration of the tribulation is determined to be 7 years or 2520 days.

image 1 Remember, it is more blessed to give than to receive. Acts 20:35, I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive".

John 8:30

As He spoke these words, many believed in Him. Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can you say, ‘You will be made free’?” Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. “And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. “Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.
