We Are Already In The Tribulation
In the 1940's, Hitler's Germany killed a reported (actual number may have been less) 6 MILLION Jews.
That's just a couple of thousands of examples.
Voice Of The Martyrs has plenty of stats to prove that the tribulation predicted in Revelation 13-17 is well-in-progress.
The Western-hemisphere and Western-europe are asleep to this important fact.
Christians have LONG been persecuted by Atheists, Asians, Muslims, Buddhists, pagans, etc.
Even in christianITE countries like America and Western-Europe, if you obey the clear commands of the Bible (for instance James 5:12) you aren't going to be doing any buying and selling.
Yes, the Tribulation is going to get greater, but we are already in it.
