Immediately preceding Jesus’ Second Coming is “The Tribulation” (Revelation 6-16), a time where God will pour out his wrath against those who stubbornly refuse to repent of their sins and receive his gracious free gift of eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ (Revelation 9:20-21, Revelation 16:9). (See “Message“.)
Revelation 6-16 records a series of End Times judgments: 7 seals, 7 trumpets and 7 bowls. It begins with the opening of the first 4 seals, which are “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse”, and concludes with an angel pouring out the seventh bowl of God’s wrath. These judgments begin prior to what is technically referred to by some as “The Great Tribulation”, a time period of 3.5 years when the latter of these judgments will be executed. (While my artwork is entitled “The Tribulation”, it encompasses all 21 judgments and not just those included in what some refer to as “The Great Tribulation”)
Please see: The Tribulation (Panel Piece Set of 5) (Signs of The Times Series) to read the story behind this artwork.
“‘Behold, I [Jesus] come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed.’
Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.
The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, ‘It is done!’ Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since man has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake. The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his wrath. Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. From the sky huge hailstones of about a hundred pounds each fell upon men. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible.”
