After I wrote the 'The timing of things' The Holy Spirit directed me too Matt 24:29-31

Mat 24:29 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:
Mat 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
Mat 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. This states three things:

The sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: as stated by the scientists around the end of 2021. The then rapture occurs.
The tribulation ends with that event which means the church goes through it for the seven and then the Great Tribulation occurs which is only lasts a short time.
If the 2021 date is correct then we are possibly more than halfway through the normal tribulation.

The timing of things to come

According to Jesus and prophecy the beginning of The Tribulation must occur before a generation passes away that saw Israel become a nation overnight.

Some interesting dates

May 1948 Israel becomes a Nation
Adding 70 years (a generation) gives May 2018
Jesus said the Tribulation has to start by then. Notice the increase in natural disaster (Volcanoes and violent earthquakes) this Jubilee year (2017)?
In June 1967 all Jerusalem was captured by Israel and Israel became once gain a prophetic Nation with the prophetic timeline restored. An undivided Jerusalem as now the capital of the Israeli Nation. The start of the Jubilee period was Sept 1967 which 50th year ends 9 Sept 2018.
In the Jubilee year all debts are supposed to be forgiven and the land is returned to its original inheritors.
This has not happened and Jerusalem is still divided and all its debts have not been forgiven.

Anyone dividing Israel faces two punishments for:

Australia has always supported Israel which is why it is not suffering as much as other nations, yet.
This is why The Tribulation starts this year (2018) because the Jubilee is over and it has not been observed and people are still trying to divide Israel.
(Any country moving its embassy to Jerusalem will be blessed by God for recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.)

Interesting the dates are coming together

The generation is over Jesus spoke about (ended May 2018) from when Israel became a nation in a day.
The first Jubilee is over near the end of 2018 since Israel controlled all of Jerusalem and became a prophetic nation in 1967
This was when the tribulation started and there were earthquakes, freak waves, volcano occurring in unusual numbers (See Is 24:21 which was coming to pass). But that has suddenly appeared to lessen markedly.
The earth, if you believe The Bible is just over 6000 years old. The first week of its life is almost over. (6 days of 1000 years).
The seventh day (of a thousand years) is the Millennium.

In between is the tribulation when Jesus removes Satan and his world system and all that belongs to it in preparation for the Millennial rule of Jesus. After the 7000th year the earth is purified by fire so it can enter the universe again because at the moment it is in an area cut off from the rest of the universe in a sort of quarantine because it has been defiled by Satan's presence and sin.
In December 2018 Satan appeared before The Father in the court of heaven and asked for the earth to be given to him as 6000 years was up.
Jesus then said He needed a little more time because the prophecies to do with the last great harvest of people had not been fulfilled so The Father gave Him an extra 3 years. The Father also said that the tribulation would not be stopped while the three year extension was given to Jesus but would not be so intense the first three years which is one reason the church goes through the first half of the tribulation. We are here for another 2-3 years.
This is why things have quietened down. The three years end mid December 2021.
This allows Donald Trump and the nations with Him to defeat the Satanist in charge of the world so that Jesus will come back to a triumphant church. This will not be the liberal church as they accept the Antichrist.

It also explains why there will be a 2020 election for Trump to win which there would not have been otherwise.
On December 23, 2012 scientists said the earth was changing from a yellow star to a red dwarf and this change was not stoppable. They gave the earth 7-10 years. This would mean an end date of 2012 close to the the end of the three year period of Grace given to Jesus ending in mid-December 2021.
It is proven the earth is flat like The Bible says. The world government is keeping this quiet because it means the earth is a special creation and not formed by evolution. It has a firmament over it which protects it. (Admiral Byrd flew near it and saw outside of it at the green continents that were there and knew it was there because his planes crashed into it) Now when the sun becomes a red dwarf in its final stage or Niburu passes close by it removes this protective dome over the earth so that the sky is scrolled up like a roll as it is said in revelation 6:12-14. Which could not occur unless the firmament was like a dome - a sheet.
Also the trail of debris following Niburu falls to the earth as meteors causing great devastation as the earth passes through its tail. This cannot refer to the sky which is rolled up like a scroll and the starts would not fall out o fit as they are fixed to it

Rev_6:13 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. Rev_6:14, And the heavens departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places

The sun will be a red dwarf and darkened so that the moon will not give off its light. The Great Tribulation occurs around then because God will not protect Satan with the firmament so has removed His people in the rapture before He removes the firmament. This would have to happen before December 2021 (if the scientists are correct) so it appears the church does go through a part of the tribulation The First 3 years).

In this period of Darkness Christians are told to go onto their houses and let no one in and block windows and doors so no one can see out or in. In a sense they are entombed (in a grave) dead to the world. After three days of darkness the rapture occurs and Christians are resurrected from their tomb by the rapture.
The Bible talks about Jesus being the light of the New Jerusalem and with The Sun gone He must be the light of the Millennium.
So what do we do?
Well we keep on obeying Jesus and doing what He desires us to do so we will be found doing His work when He comes. And we do not build a theology on these dates.
When Niburu passes by their will be three days of darkness and the evil on that planet will attack earth because a multitude of demons will cross from Niburu to the earth so that it will not be safe to walk the streets for those three days which is why we are told to go into our houses and lock the doors and windows and let no one in and also to block windows with covering and any other entrance into the house.

There are plenty of instructions on these three days of darkness on you tube.
The dome can be rolled up like a scroll because the earth is flat. You cannot roll the sky up like a scroll if the earth is round.
People who promote a flat earth are the UN by their logo which is a flat earth map. The USGS has a flat earth map as its official map. Trump says its flat because He flies a lot and can see it. The Pentagon has a flat earth map in their main incidence room. Airline pilots know this but lose their Job if they tell people.
Next time you fly look out the window and see for yourself it is flat.
The east coast of Australia will be divided by an earthquake into three islands. My friend was told by this God over 6 years ago when he died and spoke to The Father and scientists were announcing it last year (Near end of 2018).

We have the longest line of dormant volcanoes in the earth down the middle of the east coast which shows the edge of the Pacific plate was once down the middle of Australia (See map) . If the ring of fire is projected straight ahead instead of turning right above Australia it highlights this line of dormant volcanoes.
We are to be invaded by China before or after the rapture But I feel Christians will not be here as God will protect Australia so it can have the last great revival. Which is another reason the great disasters must occur after the rapture.
If we are invaded America will not defend Australia having its own problems as well as the deep state still controlling Australia and Trump will not defend the deep state. This is why you will need to make a quick peace with China and remove the globalist deep state in Australia.
When you see this last great revival (two will precede it) in Australia you know that the rapture is very, very near.
There use to be lots of visions about the need for the church to purify itself. Notice now they are about how the church is unprepared for the coming rapture, heaven and hell and that the time is short before the rapture will occur.

Why is Satan removed after the Tribulation? And why so much disaster in the Tribulation.?
The earth reaps what is sows and while Christians are here there is a restrainer of the evil so disasters happen but not like in the Tribulation when Christians are removed and only evil is done on the earth (Gal 6:7-8).
Jesus has defeated Satan so why has He not taken the earth back from him.
Satan can say the followers of Jesus hindered his rule but after the rapture Satan cannot say that and can be judged for how he ruled in that part of the Tribulation.
Jesus then comes back and rules the earth righteously judging the rule of Satan by this and showing Jesus is righteous in judging Satan for he way he ruled the earth.
Jesus told a person that if He came back now only 10% of Christians would go up in the rapture. After the revival it will be 20%.
Why do so few go up?
The 80% left behind know of Jesus but do not have a personal, intimate relationship with Him as their personal friend and Salvation is a personal relationship with Jesus and The Father (Jn 17:3).
Demons know more about Jesus than Christians and attend many churches but they do not go to heaven.

Australia will be judged when California is judged and have great devastation but is not as badly judged by the earthquake as California is Although t is thought Tasmania may disappear and Melbourne is under water so the most evil city in Australia can no more be used s a city.
