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

Ray Bradbury is known for his descriptive literature and vast amounts of emotion and mystery; most of which is never completely understood by the reader. Ray Bradbury is well known for his articulate literature as he often portrays thorough coherency…
Why is the question of Being a fundamental question?
The term ‘fundamental’ is defined as “a central or primary rule or principle on which something is based.” We can infer from this that Heidegger believed the question of Being to be the basis of philosophy, he thought that many philosophers asked whether things existed but ignored trying to ask what it means to exist. In this essay I will explain the three presuppositions made about the question of Being and why these emphasise the significance…

understand the world that surrounds us we must not only analyse it but begin to question it. Among some of the biggest philosophical questions would be the unknown truth behind our existence and whether or not our reality is truth or merely an illusion or dream state within or produced by our mind. Socrates states that an unexamined life 'is not worth living', essentially highlighting the importance of trying to identify a true understanding of reality and in turn the world around us. This philosophical…
Aldous Huxley's Brave New World portrays a world in which pain and suffering have been all but eliminated, where pleasure is perpetual, and where society is immersed in stability. In a world such as this, the novel argues, there is no need for God and religion. God is simply a response to human suffering, and since there is no suffering in the novel, not even in death, God ceases to be useful. Modern society reflects a trend somewhat similar; as science has progressed and suffering and inconveniences…
