The Olivet discourse reinforces the future timing of the Great Tribulation.
Again, I see no evidence the Great Tribulation has begun.
Those who claim the seals have been broken attempt to steal a crown from our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus, thinking they can possess that which only He is qualified to unseal. If those seals have been broken prior to His unsealing them, then their promise has been taken by another.
"And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are sealed till the time of the end." (verse 9)
This was said in reference to "times, times, and an half" (verse 7), the 3 1/2 year period of the great tribulation we see so often in Revelation. The time of the end.
The way I see it, the grand concluding events of the end are to remain sealed until the unsealing that we see in Revelation. Which unsealing has to do with Dan. 12; which has to do with the 3 1/2 years specified in Dan. 12...of which the antichrist is the main figure. The first seal in Revelation that is opened allows the antichrist, or the beast, to go forth.
The 3 1/2 years of the great tribulation are the time of the end. We have to have the antichrist on the scene before it can happen. He starts the series of events of the time of the end that will culminate with the second coming.
When God the Lamb says the time has come for the events of the end to begin, the first seal of Revelation will be opened. The Lamb alone, our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus, as you said, and as Revelation says, opens the seals.
>> “Again, I see no evidence the Great Tribulation has begun.” <<
A rather foolish strawman.
Obviously nobody has even come close to suggesting that the trib has begun. We have to go through 42 months of Daniel’s 70th week before the trib can begin. And we don’t seem to be that close to the beginning of the 70th week.
What are you up to?
