MORNINGTIME 2099
 
For then shall be great tribulation, SUCH AS WAS NOT SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD to this time, no, nor ever shall be. Matthew 24:21. Let's look at "tribulation" from a different standpoint. Yes, the coming tribulation WILL be worse than any time ever before. Yes, the Lord uses tribulation to work on Christians and grow them in Christ. And ALSO, (as an illustration), tribulation is the Lord snapping His Fingers and saying to the Lost, "Hey guys, I'm here and I want to talk to you. Put down your idols and hear what I have to say". Remember, the Lord already had the ear of His People as they are already asking Him how and what to do to be Obedient to His Every Desire. The Lord, Who built EVERYTHING, can just snap His Fingers and EVERYTHING DISAPPEARS. So He has to "tone it down" to be only what people can handle. Otherwise, poof, and they'd all be dead. Tribulation is to get Lost people’s attention to try to show them, Mercifully, that the road they're on leads straight to destruction. Because people's hearts and attitudes will be so hard against the Lord, He has to get tougher about getting people's attention. If a man is running as fast and as hard as he can to a sure death over the cliff, you may have to use a 2x4 to try to knock his feet out from under him, or he'll surely die.  Satan is on the rampage and whatever effort he uses to get people to hate the Lord, the Lord will use a greater strength to show His Love and Mercy. Many WILL die, Christians included. They already know there eternal Life in Glory, but the Lost have no understanding of exactly what's coming. They know SOMETHING is, they just don't know what. How "loud" did the Lord have to speak to get YOUR attention?  Pray for the Lost, they know not the truth. The Lord is Merciful, Kind, and Generous with His Mercies. Share Christ with others, that they too, can, Be Blessed
