New Defender's Study Bible Notes

7:14 great tribulation. This phrase is, literally, “the tribulation, the great one.” It will follow immediately after the Antichrist has his great image, “the abomination of desolation,” set up in the new temple at Jerusalem (Matthew 24:15-16,21; Revelation 13:6-8,11-18). This will be the signal for the most intense of all persecutions, and a great multitude of new believers will be executed, with their souls joining those of the martyrs of the early years of the tribulation (Revelation 6:9-11) who also have “white robes” and are waiting for them.
