►►► Evidences that the Tribulations Not Worldwide ◄◄◄

1. The first 4 seals apply only to a 4th part of the earth (Rev. 6: 8). 

2. The martyrdom of the saints in Rev. 6: 9- 11 is primarily inside the Roman Empire territory where the great whore of Rev. 17 dominates the 10 kings. 

3. The 144,000 Jews of Rev. 7: 1- 8 are sealed from the nation of Israel in Palestine, for the woman (national Israel) brings forth the man- child (Rev. 12). Since the nation is not made up of all the Jews still scattered, then the whole prophecy centers around Palestine.

4. The great tribulation saints of Rev. 7:9- 17 are martyred only in that part of the earth where the tribulation will be-- the old Roman Empire territory, as proved in Rev. 13 dealing with the extent of Antichrist's reign. 

5. The 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th trumpets are over only a third part of the earth (Rev. 8:7- 12) 

6. The 6th trumpet causes only a third part of mankind to be killed (Rev. 9:18). 

7. Jerusalem and Israel are the ones affected in the troubles of Rev. 11:1- 13 12:1- 17. 

8. The Antichrist rule will be only over the 10 kingdoms of the old Roman Empire territory (Rev. 13, notes). 

9. The events of Rev. 14:8- 20 concern Babylon, beast worshipers, martyrs, and Armageddon in Palestine. 

10. The vial judgments are also limited to the kingdom of Antichrist (Rev. 16:2, 10, 12; 18:1- 24). Even the second coming is local (Zech. 14:1- 5 Rev. 19:11- 21). Christ will be reigning in Jerusalem before many people in the isolated parts of the earth will know He is on earth (Isa. 2:2- 4 52:7; 66:19- 21 Zech. 8:23).

The answer to that depends on whether or not you ask a full preterist, a partial preterist, a historical dispensationalist, a pre millennial dispensationalist, an amillennialist, or any of a dozen other types of people who hold to a different escatology. 

In other words, great question! 

My opinion? The anti-Christ was a reference to Nero.

Great question too, Singapore! 

I am a dispensationalist and have been ever since I went to Scottsdale Bible Church in Scottsdale, Arizona. Then I went to Dallas Theological Seminary. Are the great tribulations during Anti-Christ reign going to be worldwide? 

Yes, "everyone will experience worldwide hardships, persecution, disasters, famine, war, pain, and suffering, which will affect all of creation, and precede judgment of all [present] when the Second Coming takes place." --Wikipedia
