The whole world is about to be tested and enter the period of Gods judgment, the great tribulation. Jesus Christ prophesied that true believers should pray that they will be found worthy not to go though this terrible period which is coming upon the whole world. Christ said like the labor pains of woman the time leading up to the great tribulation would come on slowly at first getting worse and worse with famine, war and persecution of Christians. Then the angels appointed by God will open each seal of judgment to be poured out upon the earth. As believers we need to recognize these signs which are already here and prepare ourselves and draw close to God through his son Jesus Christ in spirit and in truth, in preparation for delivery out of God judgment “ the great tribulation“ that is coming upon the whole world. Instead just like in the days of Noah and Lot Christians will be delivered out just before things go from bad to terrible and look forward to returning with Christ at the end of the great tribulation. At the end Christ will be seen coming in the clouds like lightning that flashes from east to west shining like the sun in great power and glory to do final battle at Armageddon with the armies of the world led by the Antichrist. Jesus Christ will be recognized by all the people on the earth, those Christians who died and also those Christians that remain alive will take on immortality and be caught up to meet Christ in the air. The great majority that received the mark of the Beast and all those that refused to believe, repent and be saved, Christ will merely speak and the armies of the world will be defeated at Armageddon then the inhabitants of the world will morn as they recognize Christ and will seek death to hide but will not find it (try and kill themselves but not die). Then the earth will be healed and remade and the year of jubilee will start followed by a thousand years of peace upon the earth for all believers. In the mean time God will have his angels gatherer all the those that died in there sins to face the great judgment which will at minimum include eternal separation from God and abandonment of all hope.
Behold I saw the dead, both great and small, standing before God’s throne. And the books were opened, including the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to what they had done, as recorded in the books. The sea gave up its dead, and death and the grave gave up their dead. And all were judged according to their deeds. Then death and the grave were thrown into the lake of fire. This lake of fire is the second death. And anyone whose name was not found recorded in the Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:12-20)

Later, Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives. His disciples came to him privately and said, “Tell us, when will all this happen? What sign will signal your return and the end of the world?“ Jesus told them, “Don’t let anyone mislead you, for many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah.’ They will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately. Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world. But all this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come. “Then you will be arrested, persecuted, and killed. You will be hated all over the world because you are my followers. And many will turn away from me and betray and hate each other. And many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people. Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it; and then the end will come. “The day is coming when you will see what Daniel the prophet spoke about—the sacrilegious object that causes desecration standing in the Holy Place.” (Reader, pay attention!) “Then those in Judea must flee to the hills. A person out on the deck of a roof must not go down into the house to pack. A person out in the field must not return even to get a coat. How terrible it will be for pregnant women and for nursing mothers in those days. And pray that your flight will not be in winter or on the Sabbath. For there will be greater anguish than at any time since the world began. And it will never be so great again. In fact, unless that time of calamity is shortened, not a single person will survive. But it will be shortened for the sake of God’s chosen ones. “Then if anyone tells you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah,’ or ‘There he is,’ don’t believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will rise up and perform great signs and wonders so as to deceive, if possible, even God’s chosen ones. See, I have warned you about this ahead of time. “So if someone tells you, ‘Look, the Messiah is out in the desert,’ don’t bother to go and look. Or, ‘Look, he is hiding here,’ don’t believe it! For as the lightning flashes in the east and shines to the west, so it will be when the Son of Man comes. Just as the gathering of vultures shows there is a carcass nearby, so these signs indicate that the end is near. “Immediately after the anguish of those days, the sun will be darkened, the moon will give no light, the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. And then at last, the sign that the Son of Man is coming will appear in the heavens, and there will be deep mourning among all the peoples of the earth. And they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. (Matthew 24:3-30)
