How do we know when the tribulation started? The scriptures tell us when it did.
Daniyl 9:27 "And he will confirm a covenant with many for one week (seven years)".
The key is in the word "many".
"Many" in Hebrew means: "Rab". "Rabin" is a derivative of the same word. (any Hebrew scholar can tell you this but we have included a basic word study for you - click here). For you Bible studiers, it's word #7227-7231 in Strong's Concordance.
So, Daniyl 9:27 actually says "And he will confirm a covenant with Rabin for one week". This was the signing of the peace agreement known as the "Oslo Accords"
