"We are not yet in the tribulation period. But I believe we are exceptionally close to it. The Bible gives us many warning signs to look for, so we can be aware of the day in which we live and we are close," he told the Health Ranger Mike Adams during a recent episode of the "Health Ranger Report."
"We are experiencing the build-up to it. When you look at what the Book of Revelation teaches – we can look at both the Old Testament and the New Testament – the Bible is very clear. The closer you get to that tribulation period, everything is going to start to take place faster and faster."
Hughes added that the building of a global empire, an increase of pestilences and economic catastrophe are coming. The biblical scholar said parents condoning the grooming of their own children via Drag Queen Story Hour is just one of the signs of the end times.

The founder of the Hope For Our Times ministry warned that the world has already reached the time when God will give the people over to their own corrupted minds. People will become Earth worshipers, praising creation instead of the Creator.
According to Hughes, people's perverted minds will be the cause of their own destruction. Those in charge will make decisions to please themselves, at the cost of destroying themselves and everything around them. The federal government down to school boards and teachers in the public school system serve as evidence of this, with Hughes adding that the world has already landed in a perverted place akin to the days of Lot.
Hughes also mentioned Yuval Noah Harari and his cohorts at the World Economic Forum who are pushing for transhumanism, which he compared to the serpent at the Garden of Eden lying to Eve.
Adams expressed shock over the transhumanists' claims of God being nonexistent and Jesus Christ being fake news. Hughes remarked in reply that the concept of people being like God has become global and has fed the dark side of humanity. But the sinfulness and wickedness of man will only get worse and reach its fullness before God intervenes.
Hughes also blasted Pope Francis as part of the problem. He told Adams: "The Pope is the one driving most of these bad policies of the World Economic Forum, the UN, the Biden administration, climatology, or whatever you want to call it. He's driving these things and so things are going to continue to get worse."
The Natural News and Brighteon.com founder also noted the rise of demonism – in the form of demonic possession, demonic influence or demonic presence in some people. Hughes agreed with Adams, saying that it is actually happening. He also mentioned how people openly worship the demonic god Baal.
Hughes ultimately warned that there is going to be a significant increase in demonic and satanic worship that takes place as mentioned in the Book of Revelation.
