This is DAY THIRTY of the daily devotional.

I am releasing a 50 day daily devotional about the end-times as revealed in Scripture. Along with the text, I will be providing a video where I cover the text of the day, and @verbal-d will be providing an audio version of it. That way, whether you want to read, watch, or listen, you'll be able to enjoy this study as you wish.

The plan is to release this devotional over the next 50 consecutive days, but life may "get in the way." We will do our best, but please be patient with me if I fall behind.

Allowing scripture to interpret scripture clearly reveals that both the “Abomination of Desolation” and the sun being turned into darkness and the moon into blood will occur before the “Day of the Lord” begins. Interestingly, the pretribulational view paints an entirely different sequence of events.

First, they must believe that prior to the beginning of the “Day of the Lord,” (and their “The Tribulation”) “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood” (Joel 2:31).

Then, during “The Tribulation”, “… the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;” (Revelation 6:12b) as a result of the sixth “seal judgment.”

Next, at the fourth trumpet, “…the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise” (Revelation 8:12).

Because pretribulationists believe that the “Olivet Discourse” (as recorded in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21) has nothing to do with rapture but instead is about the return of Jesus for the “Battle of Armageddon”, then, prior to Jesus splitting the Mount of Olives (since that unrecorded event is what they believe is happening in Matthew 24) “…shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven…” (Matthew 24:29). I understand that one of the reasons that God made the sun, moon, and stars was for “signs” (Genesis 1:14), but this seems as confusing as a child repeatedly flipping a light switch on and off.
No potential option of the pre-“Day of the Lord” darkening of the sun and bloodying of the moon exists for pretribulationists to choose from in the events recorded in Scripture; just three other similar events that are all “not the right one.” Since we are repeatedly told that before the “Day of the Lord” begins, the sun will be darkened and the moon will be bloodied, first by Joel and then Peter, we can be confident that such is true. Since the “Abomination of Desolation” must also occur prior to the “Day of the Lord”, it makes sense that both Matthew 24 & Mark 13 mention the “Abomination of Desolation” and sign in the sun and the moon before they mention the coming of Christ.

In the pretribulational view, though we are told twice that such an event will occur prior to the “Day of the Lord”, and though five options exist for this major event being recorded in Scripture, none of the five options could actually be that particular event.

Point #1: A major sign preceding the “Day of the Lord” is given to us by both Joel and Peter.

Point #2: When we use God’s phrase the “Day of the Lord”, to reason through eschatology, our job as Bible scholars becomes much less confusing.

Point #3: Very similar events of such magnitude would have to occur four separate times in order for the pretribulational view to be correct.

Point #4: Scripture clearly gives us many signposts and indicators of the events that will soon occur, including Christ’s coming and God’s end-time wrath.


If anyone is really interested, I did post the entire volume through an alt account over a year ago. I did so as an experiment to see how hard it would be for a new user to get noticed on steemit, so I didn't let anyone know that I was doing it. You can click here to a post that has links to the entire 50 days of this devotional if you really want to read ahead. That information has always been available there since I first posted it. It is not the purpose of this series to just copy all of my previous work, but instead to transform it into some new outlets by releasing it in an audio and video format, to broaden the reach that this work has.

Again, though I will certainly never claim to know it all, I do believe that many are being lead astray by some popular beliefs. I hope that this project will be able to help many others understand the end-times more accurately. Thanks!


Just in case you are new to this series and wanted to check out the previous audio or videos, here are links to the posts from each day of this series.

Also - A special thanks to @allforthegood for helping design my cover image!

Until next time…

Keep 'em coming. Love this series...

Thank you! Will do.

The day of the Lord is coming indeed. I tell you sir, when I was much younger I loved reading the book of Revelations as it foretells what will happen when the time is coming to an end, and I believe presently some of those signs are showing already.
You've indeed rekindled that burning out flame, and from now it's time to join you in spreading the news, that the time is now and we all should repent for the day of the Lord cometh, when no man knows.
Thank you very much for this daily devotional. God will surely bless you.

Wow, thank you so much for sharing that and for supporting me. Be blessed!

I'm very delighted to be able to join in spreading this good news. Remain blessed sir.

Am sorry today this but it is good that we learn from each other, is it the case that what is written in the book of revelation is what will happen in the end time or what has happened to early Christians who went through a lot of persecution

God is there very much within us we just need to self analyze

Great post.. Keep up the good work.
It's will be a scary time only if your life is devoid of the Lord..
I pray more people are drawn to God through your messages...


That image has no business being here on my post and is completely unrelated to everything. Please edit it at your nearest convenience. Thank you.
