[298] A Time of Calamity and a Time of Distress

23 Which I have kept back for the time of distress, For the day of fight and war? (Job 38)

So the Time of Distress involves fight. It was not started by the second  fire sign. It will be started by the 3rd, which is a nuclear terrorist attack.

37 Watch the blameless one and keep the upright one in sight, For the future of [that] man will be 
38 But the transgressors themselves will certainly be annihilated together; The future of wicked 
people will indeed be cut off.
39 And the salvation of the righteous ones is from Jehovah; He is their fortress in the time of 
40 And Jehovah will help them and provide them with escape. He will provide them with escape from 
wicked people and save them, Because they have taken refuge in him
(Psalm 37).

The Time of Distress marks the beginning of the gathering into the fortress for escape and salvation.

7 Alas! For that day is a great one, so that there is no other like it, and it is the time of 
distress for Jacob. But he will be saved even out of it.
8 And it must occur in that day, is the utterance of Jehovah of armies, that I shall break one's yoke 
from off your neck, and your bands I shall tear in 2, and no more will strangers exploit him as a 
servant [no more Watchtower or other worldly slavery].
9 And they will certainly serve Jehovah their God and David their king, whom I shall raise up for 
them (Jeremiah chapter 30).

1 And during that time Michael will stand up, the great prince who is standing in behalf of the sons 
of your people. And there will certainly occur a time of distress such as has not been made to occur 
since there came to be a nation [i.e. after the flood] until that time. And during that time your 
people will escape, every one who is found written down in the book (Daniel 12).

The Time of Distress is a time of escape for God's people into the true church and into the ark.

Cestius is the archetype of Fukushima which starts the time of calamity of Micah2 for the world.
Time of distress is worst thing since a nation (3rd fire sign)
GT of Matthew is worst thing since the beginning of the world (4th and 5th fire signs) 
UT of Mark is worst thing since creation (nuclear war)

Satan tries to kill us all with the UT once the arks have arrived, in order to stop us getting into 

Time of Calamity

18 Jehovah is aware of the days of the faultless ones, And their very inheritance will continue even to time indefinite.
19 They will not be ashamed in the time of calamity, And in the days of famine they will be satisfied. (Psalm 37)

10 Woe to me, Oh my mother, because you have given birth to me, a man subject to quarrel and a man subject to strife with all the earth. I have given no loan, and they have given me no loan. All of them are calling down evil upon me.
11 Jehovah has said: Surely I will minister to you for good. Surely I will intercede for you in the time of calamity and in the time of distress, against the enemy. (Jeremiah 15)

3 Therefore this is what Jehovah has said, 'Here I am thinking up against this family [the house of Russell] a calamity from which you people will not remove your necks, so that you will not walk haughtily; because it is a time of calamity [A year from ?? to ??. Because things are going to get more calamitous not less calamitous!].
4 In that day one will raise up concerning you people a proverbial saying and will certainly lament a lamentation, even a lamentation. One will have to say: We have positively been despoiled! The very portion of my people he alters. How he removes [it] from me! To the unfaithful one he apportions out our own fields. (Micah 2)
