Have you ever given your children a “one, two, three count” when they are being naughty? Sometimes parents may even count to ten and if the children do not stop their bad behavior by the time they get to “ten” then there are consequences.
When a Boxing Referee counts to three, if the boxer who is down does not get up by the third count then the match is over.
It is a bit like that with God. Only God counts to seven (opening a seal and sounding a trumpet each time) and just to make it absolutely clear, God calls the last three Trumpets, Woes (one, two and three). [Revelation 8:13]
Even after the sixth trumpet / second woe, mankind has a chance to repent! [Revelation 9:20-21]
When God starts counting, mankind should take heed because if he doesn’t, it will be “Game Over”. [Revelation 11:15]
Throughout history, God has had to start counting, but fortunately, mankind came to his senses and repented of his evil.
There are many “antichrists” (with a little ‘a’) that have come throughout history (eg Hitler and Nero) and many tribulations, but there is one antichrist and one tribulation that is coming that is worse than any that have occurred previously in history; “The Antichrist” and “The Great Tribulation”.
During the Great Tribulation, the Antichrist will torment God’s People for 1260 days and will seem to prevail over them. Mankind (except for those who are watchful) will ignore God’s counting and the signs that accompany each count. During this Great Tribulation, Mankind ignores God’s warnings and God reaches Seven. It is Game Over for God for all Mankind. A New Order will be established. Those who persecuted God’s people will go to Hades, Those who were kind to God’s people will be spared the second death but will never be part of the Bride of Christ, the New Jerusalem and will not eat of the fruit of the Tree of Life. God’s people (the wheat) will reign with him in Heaven over a select 144000 Jews and about 1.5 million pagans who survive Armageddon and were kind to God’s People.
