HOW MANY STILL BELIEVE THAT THE TRIBULATION IS OF THE FUTURE?
Great Tribulation started when the disciples were persecuted, thrown in prison, and stoned. It continued when the first Christians were killed, crucified and thrown into the arenas to be eaten by wild beasts. And it did not end when the RCC persecuted, tortured and burned true believers.

Jesus taught, “In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world,” John [16:33](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6J7TgukZ_Q4&t=993s). Paul being persecuted himself and encouraging the believers in his letters to stand firm in these times of tribulation (Romans [8:17](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6J7TgukZ_Q4&t=497s)-18, 35-39), advised them to “… put on the full Armor of God,” Ephesians [6:10](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6J7TgukZ_Q4&t=370s) – 17.
