Tribulation is 7 years..BUT.. it's NOT. It's actually longer. The Oslo Accords were signed September 13, 1993 and confirmed October 13, 1993. This treaty STARTED tribulation. However, "tribulation" is divided into 3 parts: first half, the midst and last half. The "first half" of tribulation (3 1/2 years) stopped when Netanyahu shut down the peace treaty. We were then in "the midst".. which is NOW where we are still sitting.. Daniyl 9:27 "And he will confirm we are now in is what is delaying the end of tribulationrm a covenant with Rabin for one week, and in the MIDST of the week, he will cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease".
"The Midst" - There is a pause in the midst, therefore a pause in the tribulation. The "midst" is an undetermined length of time because it's based on the peace treaty. It starts and stops.. scripture describes it as a "reiteration". Basically, tribulation depends on the peace treaty being restarted. The longer it takes, the longer tribulation is extended. It's a plan of action. Because it's currently shut down, we are still in the midst. When the peace treaty finally restarts, we will then be in the last 3 1/2 years which will be cut short due to nuclear war.
Last 3 1/2 years of Tribulation - The last half is known as the '42 moons of war". Revelation 13:5 "And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things, and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to make war for 42 moons". Scriptures show the last half will be cut short because no one would be saved. Yes, nuclear bombs will be used and will destroy 4/5th of the earths population.
