And the good news of the kingdom will be proclaimed to the whole inhabited world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come. Bible

“Good News…will be proclaimed.” Jesus foretold that the Good News of the kingdom would be preached to the whole world, and then the end would come. But any study of the Tribulation period shows how difficult preaching the Good News will be because the Antichrist and evil people will pretty much control the world. But the prophecy of Jesus will be fulfilled by an angel flying high in the sky and proclaiming the Good News to the people of earth (Rev. 14:6). Everyone on earth will have a chance to hear the Good News and believe. Furthermore, soon after the angel proclaims the Good News, the end will come. The seven last plagues, the bowl judgments, come upon the earth (Rev. 16:1-21), then Jesus comes from heaven and conquers it and defeats the army of the enemy (Rev. 19:11-21), and then Jesus sets up his Messianic Kingdom on earth.
