Summary: In the last four sermons on eschatology, we have been having a shouting time talking about: • THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH, • SECOND COMING OF CHRIST • TWO SERMONS ON THE RECEIVING OF OUR GLORIFIED BODIES.

But today we are going to be talking about something that is horrifying to even think about.

We are going to be talking about TRIBULATION PERIOD in the book of Revelation.

Most of the Book of Revelation deals with the subject of that period of time that is known as the “Tribulation Period”.

The Bible refers to the tribulation period in many ways, such as:

• Day of the Lord - Isa. 2:12, Isa. 13:6, Isa. 13:9, Eph. 3:15, Joel 1:15

• Day of God’s Vengeance - Isa. 34:8, Isa. 63:1-6

• Time of Jacob’s trouble - Jer. 30:7

• Daniel’s seventieth week - Daniel 9:24-27

• Time of the End - Daniel 12:9

• Great Day of His Wrath - Rev. 6:17

• The Hour of His Judgment - Rev. 14:7

• The End of the World - Matthew 13:40 and 49

• The Indignation - Isa. 26:20, Isa. 34:2

• The Over Spread of Abominations - Daniel 9:27

• The Day of trouble - Daniel 12:1

We also are going to be talking about that individual known as the anti-Christ.

Just as there are many names given to describe the Tribulation period, there are also twenty five names given to the antichrist. Such as:

1. The Bloody and Deceitful man in Ps. 5:6

2. The Wicked One in Psalm 102:2-4

3. The Man of the Earth in Psalm 10:18

4. The Mighty Man in Psalm 52:1

5. The Enemy in Psalm 55:3

6. The Adversary in Psalm 74:8-10

7. The Head of many countries in Psalm 11:6

8. The Violent Man in Psalm 140:1

9. The Assyrian in Isa. 10:5-12

10. The King of Babylon in Isa. 14:2

11. The Sun of the Morning in Isa. 14:12

12. The Spoiler in Isa. 16:4-5

13. The Nail in Isa. 22:25

14. The Branch of the Terrible Ones in Isa. 25:5

15. The Profane Wicked Prince of Israel in Ezekiel 21:25-27

16. The Little Horn in Dan. 7:9

17. The Prince that shall come in Dan. 9:26

18. The Vile person in Dan. 11:21

19. The Willful King in Dan. 11:36

20. The Idol Shepherd in Zech. 11:16-17

21. The Man of Sin in 2 Thess. 2:3

22. The Son of Perdition in 2 Thess. 2:3

23. The Lawless one in 2 Thess. 2:8

24. The Antichrist in 1 John 2:22

25. The Beast in Rev. 11:7

This age in which is called the tribulation period is when the anti-christ will rule and reign for seven years on earth.

This is an age in which no one should desire to live….especially the last three and a half years which is known as the GREAT TRIBULATION PERIOD.

Matthew 24:21-22 for then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

During this time on earth God is going to pound the earth with His wrath.

When God pours His wrath out on the earth He will pour out the…




God has poured His love out on mankind during the church age but now God’s love has turned to wrath and now He pounds the earth with His anger.

Bible tells us it is a FEARFUL THING TO FALL INTO THE HANDS OF ANGRY GOD! (Hebrews 10:31)

Illus: Remember the boxer called “Boom Boom Mancini”, he was considered to be one of the greatest boxers in his weight division.

He could take a punch from the best of them, and he could throw a punch as hard as any of them, if not harder than most.

• In fact, he was fighting a boxer in one of bouts and he hit him so hard that it knocked him out, and the powerful blow from Mancinni led to his death.

• The experts said that he threw an average of 150 punches per round. He literally beat his opponent into submission.

• Those who boxed him said that weeks after they boxed him they were still sore from all the punches he hit them with.

The reason I mention this fighter is because he reminds us of what God does during the Great Tribulation period.

For three-and-a-half years he pounds the earth with some of the most devastating blows that the world has ever received.

• Men will run and try to find a place to hide from God. But how can you hide from a God who is OMNISCIENT and OMNIPRESENT?

But nevertheless, the Bible says this is exactly what they will do. Look at Rev. 6:16-17, we read, “And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”
