In Matthew 24: 21 (NASB), Christ Jesus describes the upcoming tribulation in these words: 21 "For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will." The unprecedented magnitude of this great cataclysm is clearly established by the words of our Lord, Christ Jesus; however, this warning appears to be ignored since the tribulation looms just ahead and no-one seems to prepare. At this late stage of the Biblical timeline, it has now become urgent for those who wish to prepare for their own safety and the safety of their loved ones.
To better understand what we must prepare for, this end-time Biblical narrative explains how the sudden carnage and desolations of the tribulation will soon claim more than half of the world population, which is nearly sixty times more than the 60-million people who perished in World War II. Then, at the end of the 42-month tribulation, Christ Jesus will gather His unified flock in the clouds, all righteous Israelites-both Jews and Gentile Christians, and transform them from mortal to immortal and then return with them to desolated earth, in Israel. This is the second coming of Christ Jesus. A month later, the Battle of Armageddon will end with the annihilation of Satan's armies, and then all flesh will become extinct to more than double the carnage and desolations of the tribulation. When this extinction of all flesh takes place, the earth will become incinerated in a heat which will melt the elements (2 Peter 3: 10-13), and then God will transform the purged earth into a paradise, with its remnant population to be the immortal saints who were once mortals. In addition to explaining these end-time prophecies in perspective, the narrative also explains to its readers how they can survive and become transformed from mortal to immortal to become the worthy citizens of this new millennial paradise of Christ Jesus.
