Question: My question has to do with Revelation 3:10. What is the hour of temptation and when did this event take place? Or when will it take place, considering it is to come upon all the world to try them that dwell upon the earth.

Answer: We believe that the 'hour of temptation' is the time Jesus described as 'great tribulation' in Matthew 24. The word 'temptation' can also mean a trial or a test. This will be a time of great pressure on the people of God and a time when the gospel will be preached throughout the world. It will definitely be a great test for the entire world.
