Part XIII: The Lord of the Scroll – Daniel’s 70th Week (The Great Tribulation (GTrib))
Very few details are given about the first three and one-half years referred to by Jesus as “The Beginning of Birth Pains.” However, once the Antichrist commits the abomination of desolation, the details of the last three and a half years become extensive.
Part XII: The Lord of the Scroll – Daniel’s 70th Week (The Beginning of Birth Pains (BBP))
What is the “Tribulation Period?“ One of the most frequently used terms concerning future events and the church’s Rapture is “tribulation.” This, in turn, leads to a discussion of the Great Tribulation, its significance, and its duration.
Part XI: The Lord of the Scroll – Daniel’s 70th Week (God’s Throne Room)

Part X: The Lord of the Scroll – When will the King of Kings Return? (Revised)
One of the fundamental beliefs of Christianity is that our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return, gather those alive on Earth that truly believe in Him (i.e., His Church), and then move them to be with Him forever!

Prophesy: Women through the Eras of Redemption History
Recently, a reader wrote to ask about the history of women prophesying throughout Scripture. . . While the text records the stories of fewer women prophets than men, in every era in which men prophesied, at least one woman (often multiple women) has prophesied.
