MORNINGTIME 2678
 
But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him , if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. WHEN THOU ART IN TRIBULATION, and all these things are come upon thee, EVEN IN THE LATTER DAYS, IF THOU TURN TO THE LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice;  (For the Lord thy God is a merciful God;) HE WILL NOT FORSAKE THEE, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them. Deuteronomy 4:29-31. If you will do a word search of the word "tribulation", you will find it comes up exactly 25 times. This verse is very best the beginning of the Bible. "IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then SHALL APPEAR THE sign of the SON OF MAN in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming IN THE CLOUDS of heaven with power and great glory". Matthew 24:29-30. And tribulation is found all the way through the Bible, right up to Christ coming in the clouds at The End. In short, Tribulation is covered throughout ALL the Bible. Sinners go through tribulation in the hopes of them repenting and coming to A Saving Knowledge of Jesus Christ. Christians will GO THROUGH tribulation to build them stronger, and with great Patience, In Christ. NOWHERE does it say, or even imply, that Christians will escape tribulation. If you will read and study all 25 plus verses about tribulation, you will walk away with the understanding that “Tribulation” is actually a GOoD Thing to bring sinners TO Christ, and Believers even Closer to Christ. Again, NOWHERE in these 25 verses is there even a hint of Christians escaping FROM tribulation. But Christ carrying Christians THROUGH tribulation is a theme carried throughout ALL the Bible, yes, even through the time of the "great tribulation". Be comforted, and, Be Blessed.
