The Tribulation

The Brew Is A Musing

THE TRIBULATION – The Hebrew word that is commonly translated as Tribulation literally means narrow or compressed. The Greek word that is translated as Tribulation also conveys the idea of severe constriction, narrowing, or pressing together. In contrast to the age of Grace, which has extended for nearly 2000 years, the Tribulation (also called the age of Wrath) is compressed into seven years. Similar notions underlie the Latin word which literally means a threshing sledge used to crush and separate grain. Separating the wheat from the chaff will entail a crushing sequence of events during the Tribulation. A figurative understanding of these terms would be affliction, distress, or tribulation. (1)

The primary questions surrounding the Tribulation are its timing in relation to the Rapture and Parousia, whether believers will be subjected to it, the distinction between Tribulation and Great Tribulation, its duration, and why the Tribulation is necessary.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
