According to the bible there is still a few things that need to happen before we're in the last 7 years. First off is the 7 year agreement of Daniel 9. And the conditions that lead up to it.

Next would be the Gog-Magog war. Probably this is what precedes the 7 year agreement and makes it necessary.

Third would be a Jewish temple and everything associated with that.

And lastly would be the appearance of the branch. He is the one who builds the temple.

Now those being the future events to the 7 year agreement then here's something to be concerned about. Based on a reading of Matthew 24 and the fig tree parables the event referred to in Matthew 24-36 may have already happened.

36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

But that event would be verse 14. Based on a reading of the entire Matthew 24 prophecy.

14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

The problem comes about if you think about the rebirth of a nation of Israel in 1948. If that was an end time event as predicted in Ezekiel and the dried bones prophecy then it would have been the 2nd end time event. Which then puts the generation timeclock at 69 years and counting as of now.

Then consider the prophesies of Daniel 8 and 11. Essentially if you combine all the prophesies of Daniel you can build a timeline of events that happen before the 7 year agreement. And the first event would be Daniel 11-2.

2 And now will I shew thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all: and by his strength through his riches he shall stir up all against the realm of Grecia.

This would be a perfectly accurate description of what led up to the 9-11 attacks. And then the next 2 events are described in Daniel 8.

That 2 nations in the middle east would be conquered by the "Greece" of Daniel 11. So if you think about it then what you have here is 5 fig leaves of the fig tree parable.

It could be very soon now.

The 7 year agreement is made, this is the 7 year tribulation. This agreement made by someone (the anti-christ) will be be broken in the middle (3 1/2 years into it) and then this person, whomever they are...will say "I am God" and then some people will recognize that they have been deceived.

Yes, you are going to die.
And I am going to die.
Stop being so scared.
Go love someone or something.

--or jerk off; whatever.
See you in the afterlife--if there is one.

This planet has been around a lot longer than your religions and if it wants to get rid of us, then it will. The planet moves in cycles, humans just happen to be in the way of one its transitions. Tough luck for us, I suppose.

The Bible is the best commentary on the Bible and there are things that do not allow for us to be in the midst of the seven year tribulation.

Jesus did not return to set up the promised earthly kingdom ran from Jerusalem shortly after his resurrection because Israel rejected the LORD, the father, in the OT, they rejected Jesus, God the son in the four Gospel writings, and God, the Holy Ghost up until Acts 7 where they stoned Stephen.

He will return to set up the kingdom and the fact that Israel became a nation again in 1948 tells us God is going to be dealing with them soon enough ad when he does the body of Christ shall be gathered unto Jesus ever more to be with him, because they shall not suffer the wrath of God because their faith that Jesus suffered that wrath for them on the cross was believed on for which they are saved from the wrath that is to come.

But since its formation the UN has passed 450 resolutions against Israel alone. That is more than half of its resolutions to date and more shall be added. The Nations that make up the UN are the nations that shall one day come to Jerusalem and make oblations to the Lord, those that don't will not have rain to make an oblation anyway.

One prophecy that happens in the midst of the seven year tribulation, also known of as Jacob's trouble so we understand that the whole great tribulation thing has to do with Israel and not so much about the rest of the world. That prophecy is that four angles will stop the winds from blowing from the east, the south, the west, and the north. This means the earth will stop spinning ending the weather patterns causing the earth to heat up tremendously (global warming), and proving gravity is actually not caused by the spinning for the earth. When this takes place the world will be in the midst of the great tribulation.

IMHO is we are not yet in the great tribulation, but the figs trees leaves have formed but no fruit has yet to show itself that would indicate we are still a little ways from it still.

you are correct the earth is a lot older than many Christians and the young earthers believe. The world (not the earth) has not completed its current cycle known as "the times of the Gentiles".
