Worldwide Tribulation?

Just saw someone posted this verse and said everyone of us will have to go through a world wide tribulation.

John 16:33

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

Do you want to know what’s the verse just before it?

John 16:32

“A time is coming and in fact has come when you will be scattered, each to your own home. You will leave me all alone. Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me.”

Now let’s read it together.

John 16:32-33

“A time is coming and in fact has come when you will be scattered, each to your own home. You will leave me all alone. Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me.

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

Excuse me. Did you leave Jesus alone? Are you 2000 years old? Did you live in Jerusalem? Are you one of his followers 2000 years ago? Do you have a time machine?

Mark 14:50

Then everyone deserted him and fled.

It was his disciples that deserted him.

It’s not about this world. It was about a world before Jerusalem ended in AD70.

For you Dirk Hollander. Keep up the good work.
