There is no question this world will yet experience a time of "great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time" as predicted by our Lord (Matthew 24:21 - For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.) In Revelation 3:10, He promised to keep believers from "the hour of temptation which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth." Such a time will have to be worse than anything known in human history; far worse than the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D 70 (1 million casualtiees), than the Black Plague (9 million killed), than World War l (20 million killed), than the devastation of World War ll and Hitler's holocaust (6 million Jews & at least 4 million Christians killed). The Scriptures give more space to describing the coming Tribulation period than to any other prophtic event. The Hebrew prophets mention it 39 times, calling it a "time of Jacob's trouble" (Jeremiah 30:7 - Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.), "tribulation" (distress, Deuteronomy 4:31), and many other titles denoting distress. The New Testament calls it "the day of the Lord" (1 Thessalonians 5:2 - For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.), "the wrath of God" (Revelation 14:10, 15:1, 7; 16:1), and "the wrath of the Lamb" ( Revelation 6:16-17). Daniel, the Hebrew prophet that Jesus quoted most, predicted that troublous times would last seven years and be started by the signing of a seven-year covenant between Israel and "the prince that shall come" (called elsewhere "antichrist" or "the beast"). Then he predicted this "beast" or governmental ruler would break that covenant in the middle of the Tribulation and desecrate the temple (Daniel 9:26-27). Again, Daniel predicted that when Antichrist arises, he will be empowered by Satan himself with "all power and signs and lying wonders" (2 Thess. - Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders.), and will desecrate the temple and set up an image of himself, demanding that people worship him. There is little doubt as to when this Tribulation occurs or how long it will last. Daniel predicts it will last "one week" (seven years, 9:27). John in Revelation divides it into…
about history changes throughout the semester?
Throughout this course, we have taken many different viewpoints of various people and areas. This has allowed me to consider the affects of all types of people when considering certain historically related thoughts. I see myself writing essays for other classes, applying knowledge i have gained from this course. For example, I use the great leaders like Ghengis Khan or Napoleon. This course has been a blessing because it is so much more informative…

The End of the World, You Mean it This Time?
The end of the world has been an on-going controversial topic for a long time. There have been numerous claims that the world is going to end over the past few thousand years, whether it ends by a giant tsunami wave flooding the earth, the earth literally splitting in half and sending everything on the surface into the fiery middle layer of the planet itself, or even the dead rising from…

Preconsumer waste – this is offcuts and processing waste, such as guillotine trims and envelope blank waste. This waste is generated outside the paper mill and could potentially go to landfill, and is a genuine recycled fibre source. Also includes de-inked preconsumer (recycled material that has been printed but did not reach its intended end use, such as waste from printers and unsold publications).
Postconsumer waste – this is fibre from paper which has been used for its intended end use…

Composition and Critical Thinking
In the computer world there has always been the question, which computer is better? There are several brands of computers on the market but Mac and PC are among the best. Being an avid PC user for many years, I was skeptical about transitioning to a MAC. Finally I built up the courage to buy an MAC which was money well spent. The Mac is a better computer than its counter part PC because of its design and operating system.…
This is my letter to the world
An individual’s perception of belonging evolves in response to the passage of time and the interaction with their world. In what ways is this view of belonging represented in “This is my letter to the world”?
The passage of time can stimulate individual’s personal values and choices whether or not she /he will belong or segregate from the norm, however this does not determine reclusiveness but a personal choice based on the individual’s systematic values and beliefs…

have had on this Earth has greatly affected the outcome of history. In an attempt to provide an overview of human history in his book This Fleeting World, David Christian introduces it in the context of the history of the universe and then systematically breaks it down into three distinct eras providing a logical framework that can be used in a more detailed study. His goal is to provide a “big picture” of world history and the interconnections that exist among the peoples of this world.
