Don’t Worry Folks, the Great Tribulation Isn’t Happening This Weekend, or Ever

Is the Great Tribulation getting ready to kick off this weekend? Are we about to plunge into seven years of global chaos where all those left behind will be forced to take the mark of the beast or get beheaded? Well, that’s what one end-times predictor is warning the world. And I’ll admit, this end-times prediction is a little crazier than usual.
