24 “But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light, 25 and the stars will be falling from heaven, and the powers that are in the heavens will be shaken.
To explain the parable of the fig tree in Mark 13:28:32 , I had to study and explain the Bible passage before it to help know the whole meaning, cause there is no other way to under what Mark 13:30 means;
Jesus is asked to give signs of His second coming and He speaks of a time of tribulation and after such time, He will come with glorily way. When and where tribulation begins for the children of God and His second coming have different teachings and beliefs within Christianity, but I alway ask the word of God. The word tribulation means to be in distress or suffering resulting from oppression or persecution. Exactly when this began for God’s children, to know for sure, the word of God has the best answer.
In the religion of Christianity Stephen is the first martyr, but to God, all that believe in Him are in His children and if they die for serving Him, He wept for them.Scripture speak of the tears He cries for the godly ones;
Let’s say tribulation began at the time of Abel’s murder or or the time when Adam and Eve really learn want death was, when their son die at the hand of their other son. But if the Lord sheds a tear for His saint then maybe it is time of tribulation, scripture does say He is full of patience and the King James Version of the English Bible says patience is longsuffering, patience is basically waiting in pain. So is the time of tribulation only before the time of Jesus’ second coming, how many of you have read all of scripture and read of time where God’s children didn’t suffer. Most servants who ask my God to be prophets ask the Lord please pick someone else, that person knew if they became a messenger of God, he or she put a big bullseye on them and the world was and will persecute them. Maybe many Christian read of the horror stories of horrible tribulation that will increase before our Lord’s glory returns. Jesus told His followers both then and now, they would face persecution, like hate, prisonment and even death. The apostle Paul knew when he accepted Jesus as the Son of God, he would suffer tribulation but he wrote none of that would separate us from God. So when tribulation does come, I welcome it , I know my Savior is coming soon. God bless you all, Jesus loves you and so do I. Samuel J Head.
1 Peter 3:18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: 19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; 20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. 21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
