This is DAY THIRTY FOUR 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.

DAY 34 - TIMING : Part 2

Concerning the great multitude that we left off with yesterday, one of the elders standing near the throne has a brief conversation with John.

“And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” (Revelation 7:13-14)

We must take notice of the term “great tribulation” used here. I believe that this is the same “great tribulation” that begins after the Abomination of Desolation, when the Antichrist persecutes believers.

“For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” (Matthew 24:21)

This “great tribulation” begins in Matthew after the revealing of the Antichrist, and apparently ends just before the sun and moon are darkened, the stars fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens are shaken.

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:” (Matthew 24:29)

Though the moon turning to blood is not specifically mentioned here in Matthew, could this still be the event before the “Day of the Lord?” Let us quickly compare with the passage from Revelation 6 to determine this.

“And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.” (Revelation 6:12-14)

Matthew 24:29 – “shall the sun be darkened”
Revelation 6:12-14 – “the sun became black as sackcloth of hair”

Matthew 24:29 – “the moon shall not give her light”
Revelation 6:12-14 – “the moon became as blood”

Matthew 24:29 – “the stars fall from heaven”
Revelation 6:12-14 – “the stars fell unto the earth”

Matthew 24:29 – “the powers of the heavens shall be shaken”
Revelation 6:12-14 – “the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together”

You can judge for yourself whether these passages speak of the same events, but I have drawn my conclusion for the moment.

Point #1: The “great multitude” that appears in heaven came out of the “great tribulation.”

Point #2: This could be the same “great tribulation” that believers are subjected to by the hand of the Antichrist, which is not God’s 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!

Cool, I'll check it out!

Great revelation...


Thank you.

This is the first time I’ve ever heard anyone cross-reference Matthew 24:29 with Revelation 6:12-14. Thank you for pointing that out and adding to my understanding 📖


Thanks for letting me know. For me, the key to understanding what God was actually trying to reveal when it came to eschatology was using His terms and phrases instead of mans.


Agreed. I spend a lot of time doing exegetical studies for that very reason.


Wow; that was quite a lengthy post but was really educative and expository at the same time.


It is an even longer study as a whole.

steady..a good post..thanks @papa-pepper.. Success is always..

Thank you @papa-pepper :)

Amazing Post! Please follow me, I vote for you.!! Hello from Venezuela!

God bless you @papa-pepper


Wow! Thanks for letting me know.


no problem!

Great post papa! I've only found out this series and only read this one, however, so far as I understand, we the non Jewish but Christ believers are included as the [great multitudes], the ones with the white robes.

However, seeing the verse again, reminds me that this great multitudes are the ones coming from antichrist tribulation. So, where are we in the revelation book?

I will be among those who will out in the white robe at the end of time. Hope u guys will join me too lolll
