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.

Considering that Fimbulwinter hasn't started yet, I'm going to go with no.

Very true and the real countdown to the seven year tribulation
began when Israel became a nation again.We are living in the
end times and don't know how much time we have until Yeshua
