The Great Tribulation

In order to understand about the great tribulation that is spoken about in Matt 24:21, one must first read Matt 24:1-3

Matt 24:1 And Yeshua went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him to show him the buildings of the temple

24:2 And Yeshua said to them, do you not see all these things? Truly I say to you, not one stone here shall be left upon another, which will not be torn down

24:3 And as Yeshua was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying. ‘tell us, when these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming, and the end of the age?

In verse 3, the disciples are asking Yeshua about the things that Yeshua spoke of in verse 2, they are not asking Yeshua about the end of the planet, “the end of the age”, is the end of the Mosaic age, that age ended when the temple was destroyed

Everything after verse 3 is about what will happen before the temple will be destroyed, the “great tribulation” that Yeshua speaks of in Matt 24:21 happened during the destruction of Jerusalem, the temple was destroyed, during the destruction of Jerusalem in AD70, therefore the “great tribulation” has already happened

Matt 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be

The book of Revelation was written to 7 churches that were in Asia & no one else, that means that everything in Revelation has already happened

Rev 1:4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia

Rev 1:11 what you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia

Rev 22:10 Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand

Rev 22:16 I Yeshua have sent mine angel [messenger] to testify to you these things in the churches

The churches that are spoken of in Rev 22:16 are the seven churches that Yeshua speaks to in Rev 2 and 3 and no one else

In the world today there are many people that say the book of Revelation is about the world in which we live today, but Revelation 1:11 makes it very clear that Revelation was written to 7 churches in Asia and no one else,  those who say Revelation is about our time period are adding to the book, Revelation 22:18  is a warning to anyone that adds to the book

Rev 22:18 For I testify to every man that hears the words of the prophecy of this book, if anyone shall add to these things, God shall add to them the plagues which are in this book

Everything in the bible has already happened
