1 ...And there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation, Even to that time...
7 ...that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished.
'A time, times and a half a time' means a period of three and a half years. Notice that a time of trouble will come in the future when the power of the holy people, meaning God's chosen nation, the Jews, will be completely shattered.
The Great Tribulation will be a time of God's judgement when the whole world including Israel (Jacob) will be plunged into great distress, as prophesied in both the Old and New Testaments. It will be followed immediately by worldwide tohuw and bohuw cataclysmic events, when the powers of the heavens will be shaken at the actual return of Jesus Christ to this earth. Chapter 6 'The Pre-Adamic Age', describes the future judgement of God at the end of this present age. Below is a quote from Chapter 6.
"By putting together the scriptures Jeremiah 4:24-28, Revelation 6:12-17 and Matthew 24:29-30, we can clearly see that the future tohuw and bohuw judgement, at end of this present age, will be absolutely cataclysmic involving the powers of the heavens being shaken, the stars (meteorites) falling onto earth, the sun and the moon being darkened, great earthquakes causing every mountain and every island to shake and move out of its place, a great global devastation of the earth's surface causing chaos and waste, massive destruction of all types of life and surviving unbelievers so terrified that they hide away from the face of the returning Jesus Christ and His wrath."
God's massively cataclysmic judgement against this present world at the Second Coming of Jesus Christ will also change the topography and the landscape of the whole earth's surface in preparation for the Millennial Age of Jesus Christ. Let us hear what the prophet Isaiah has to say.
