Sudden birth pains: The tribulation begins suddenly and unexpectedly.
The first 3 1/2 years start with the beginning of the Antichrist's effort of world

Desolation: The Antichrist invades Israel and sets himself up as god in the
temple in Jerusalem, eliminating all Jewish worship around the world. He
occupies Jerusalem for 3 1/2 years.
Satan is kicked out of
heaven in the spiritual war that develops as a
result of the bold and effective preaching of the Gospel in the face of extreme
persecution.The visible manifestation of Satan's fall to earth is the comet
"Wormwood." The 1/3 destructions are Satan's trademark.
