Tribulation Shortened to 5 Months

The tribulation was shortened to a 5 month period by our Father. The Lord shortened the time for the elect’s sake. 5=Grace. Our Father is showing us grace

Mar_13:14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

Christ brings in Daniel 9:27 to this time frame, what will be happening just before Christ’s return:
Dan 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
Christ brought in this time period, when He spoke on Daniel 9:27

Christ, speaking on the same subject, that being the trib..shows the time has been shortened:
Mar 13:20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.

Again:
Mar_13:14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
Dr. Moffatt caught the word “desolation” should be “desolator” (The “desolator” standing where “he” ought not.) He makes “desolation” not a condition, but an entity=desolator.
The word “he” and “it” are the same in the Greek. The subject discussed determines he value of the word.
The desolator is satan, himself. This is when satan will be here with his angels.
Rev 9
Rev 9:5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.

Rev 9:11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

Abaddon” in the Hebrew is:

G3

Ἀβαδδών

Abaddōn

ab-ad-dohn’

Of Hebrew origin [H11]; a destroying angel: – Abaddon.

H11

אבדּון

‘ăbaddôn

ab-ad-done’

Intensively from H6; abstractly a perishing; concretely Hades: –

 

Who is the destroying angel? Satan

 

Apollyon” in the Greek:

G623

ֱ̓נןככץ́שם

Apolluōn

ap-ol-loo’-ohn

Active participle of G622; a destroyer (that is, Satan): – Apollyon.

This is when satan and his angels are kicked out of heaven:
Rev 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
Rev 12:8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
Rev 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

And we see the serpent, (satan), cast a flood out of his mouth:
Rev 12:15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.

Christ also compared the end times to the days of Noah
Mat_24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Mat_24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

How long did the flood waters last on the earth?
Gen 7:24 And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.

Here are two floods… flood of water, 150 days= 5 months
Flood coming out of the serpents mouth
Christ compared the flood of Noah’s time to the end times
Satan is the antichrist, the son of perdition, the dragon, serpent….etc. God tells us who is the Antichrist
Rev 9 shows he and his angels have a five month period.

Our Father loves us and is showing us that He is giving us grace by shortening the time.

Jesus tells us: Mar 13:20 And except that the Lord had shortenen hid those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.

 

 

 

If the time were not shortened, no flesh would be saved.

satan’s deception is going to be so convincing that even God’s elect would eventually be deceived if it were to go on too long.

God, in His loving kindness and mercy, is watching out for His children that will stand against satan when he’s here.
