Q. My question is what will start the 7 year tribulation? Is there a specific event that will signal its beginning?
A. According to Daniel 9:27 the so-called seven year tribulation, which is really Daniel’s 70th Week, will begin with a covenant enforced by the anti-Christ. Many believe this covenant will bring a brief period of peace to Israel following the battle of Ezekiel 38. Daniel 8:25 and 1 Thes. 5:3 both hint of this.
