The Tribulation

We teach that following the removal of the church from the earth (John 14:1-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18), the righteous judgements of God will be poured out upon an unbelieving world (Jeremiah 30:7; Daniel 9:27, 12:1; 2 Thessalonians 2:7-12; Revelation 16), and that these judgements (known as the time of Jacob’s trouble or the great tribulation) will be climaxed by the return of Christ in glory to the earth (Matthew 24:27-31, 25:31-46; 2 Thessalonians 2:7-12).

We teach that the history of the nations of the earth are inextricably bound up with God’s providential and particular dealings with the elect nation, Israel – both in blessing (Genesis 12:3; Isaiah 2:1-4, 11:9; Micah 5:4-15) and in judgement (Genesis 12:3; Deuteronomy 30:7; Matthew 24:4-14; Revelation 6:1, 19:21).

We teach that these days will end in the personal return of Christ to earth (Matthew 24:27-31, 25:31-46; 2 Thessalonians 2:7-12), when the Old Testament saints and the tribulation martyrs will be raised and all the living judged (Daniel 12:2-3; Revelation 20:4-6).
