The 5th seal of the book of Revelation is the coming Great Tribulation which will last 3-1/2 years. It’s the exact same period as four other huge events that will last 1,260 days, 42 months or “time, times & half a time”:
♦ The Two Witnesses
♦ The Beast & False Prophet
♦ The Times of the Gentiles
♦ The Place of Safety
It means the end of the ride for the Four Horsemen [the first four seals], except that the Beast and especially the False Prophet will cause the greatest religious deception [the white horseman] ever foisted on man and the greatest war [red horseman] yet so that mankind will stupidly fight Jesus Christ at His second coming (Rev. 19:17-19).
Write yourself a memo: Self, whatever comes, do not assemble in Megiddo and do not, under any circumstances, mobilize with an army to the Kidron Valley west of Jerusalem. The Bible calls it the Valley of Decision (Joel 3:12-14), and if you ever go to fight “an alien invader” there, you’ve made the wrong decision! It’s also called the Valley of Jehoshaphat, and the place will be jumpin’ alright, with blood flowing up to horses’ bridles! (Rev. 14:20).
Actually, religious deception and war will not end completely until the core cause of both—satan the devil—is put away for good after he is released for a little while in Rev. 20:7-10. Imagine … no more religious deception or war—thanks to satan and his demons going to their eternal HELL that they deceived humans into believing could be their fate!
You’ll know when the Great Tribulation has started
because satan’s two powerful men—the Beast and the False Prophet [Man of Sin]—will be butting heads with God’s Two Witnesses on the daily news.
The Gentiles will have their “Time” of world domination because the Great Tribulation is the time of “Jacob’s trouble” (Jer. 30:7).
The Great Tribulation is the time of satan’s wrath on the spiritual Church of God (Gal. 6:16) and the physical 12 Tribes of Israel. You won’t want to go through it because in three places (Jer. 30:7, Dan. 12:1, Matt. 24:21) the Bible promises it will be
The worst time ever experienced on earth!
Time, times & half a time will seem like overtime! Earth will want time out!
You might be more concerned about that if you knew who the 12 Tribes of Israel are today. The modern nation called Israel is primarily only the one Tribe of Judah!

When you understand this little-understood Bible key to prophecy—which is a major part of “The Key of David”—you’ll see why satan has launched a new major deception against old white men, patriarchy and history, especially Judeo-Christian history. God says the reason He blessed the 12 Tribes of Israel so much was because of the obedience of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Deut. 7:6-8, 9:5). He says the reason Great Britain and the United States became so great was because of His grace upon those three patriarchs. The way to make them great again would be for their leaders and people to obey God in faith like those three patriarchs did!
And you wake up to the fact that the idea of being secretly raptured up to heaven to escape the Great Tribulation was just another of the many white horse fantasies! [See “The Rapture of Driverless Cars”].
