Are We In The Tribulation?

As one might expect, conspiracy theorists have flooded the internet with crazy explanations of COVID-19 and the end times. Some have linked the epidemic to pestilence prophecies in Revelation about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse saying we are now in the 7-year Tribulation.

But not so fast!

God may be giving us a glimpse of the Tribulation Period, but we are not in the Tribulation Period. The Church is still here, the final empire hasn’t arrived and the important event of Antichrist and Israel signing the Peace Treaty, which marks the beginning of the Tribulation (Daniel 9:27), has not taken place.

What we can say is that we are seeing a convergence of signs, and they are a reminder we are getting closer to that last seven-year period.
