“The Order Of Coming Events”

Posted: February 20, 2016 in Bible Prophecy, Dispensations, Heaven, Hell, Rapture, Tribulation

Understanding The Times

Many people have been led to believe that no one can know the future. God does (Isaiah 46:10). He has revealed it to us in His Word. By the use of the normal rules of interpretation, we can discover what God has said will happen in the future.

Those who have placed their faith in Christ alone for their salvation have a bright future awaiting them but those who are unbelievers don’t. When you share the Gospel with your unsaved loved ones, friends, fellow workers, and neighbors, you give them the opportunity to be saved and get taken to heaven before the coming days of Tribulation.

The Rapture Of The True Church

(John 14:1-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; 1 Corinthians 15:51-53)

Church = Believers from the Day of Pentecost to the Rapture. Acts 2:1ff; 10:44; 11:15

Pre-tribulation. 1 Thessalonians 1:10; 5:9; Revelation 3:10

The Christian’s Hope (Confident Expectation). It is –

Blessed (Titus 2:13), Purifying (1 John 3:3), Comforting (1 Thessalonians 4:18)

Seven Years Of Tribulation

“Daniel’s 70th Week” Daniel 9:27; Matthew 24; Revelation 6-19

After the Rapture but before the Tribulation –

Most Jews must be in the land of Israel to sign a 7 year covenant. Dan. 9:27

Ten Kings from the Revived Roman Empire must be in power. Rev. 17:13

The world wide harlot religion must be in place and have power. Rev. 17:3

The Seal, Trumpet, and Bowl Judgments

Revelation 6-19

The Tribulation” 3 ½ Yrs. “The Great Tribulation” 3 ½ Yrs.

The Seal Judgments take place during the first half of the Tribulation.

The Trumpet and Bowl Judgments take place in the second half of the Tribulation.

The First 3 ½ Years Of The Tribulation

Matthew 24:1-8

Jews will be at peace and protected by “Man of Sin” until middle of Tribulation

The Seven Seal Judgments. (Revelation 6:1-16; 8:1) Coming upon non-Jews

1.White – False peace. Covenant between Anti-Christ and Israel. Dan. 9:27

2.Red – War. Anti-Christ vs Three kings. (Jews safe) Dan. 2::43; 7:23ff

3.Black – Famine

4.Pale – Death. (¼ of population dies) (Later 1/3 more will die. Rev. 9:15)

5.Martyrs – Gentile believers who opposed the apostate church

6.War – Russians versus Anti-Christ who is killed and raised. Rev. 13:3, 12, 14; Ezekiel 38:2, 22; Allies: (Ezekiel 38:5 Persia (Iran), Ethiopia (Sudan), Libya, Gomer (Turkey), vs. Western confederacy: Ezekiel 38:13; Rev. 6:12 Sun darkened. Nuclear war. Later the sun blows up and goes out at the end of the Tribulation. Rev. 8:12 (4th Trumpet); Matthew 24:29

7.Silence in heaven. (8:1) When Anti-Christ gains world domination.

*Note: This order of events seems to fit best with the days ahead of us.

At The Middle Of The Tribulation

He breaks his covenant, stops sacrifices, puts his image in Temple. Matt. 24:15; Dan.9:27

Anti-Christ rules world for 42 months = 3 ½ yrs. Rev. 13:5, 18 (Mark=666)

144,000 Jews sealed. Rev. 7 (12 Tribes) Preach Gospel of Kingdom. Matt. 24:14

Satan will be cast down to the earth. Rev. 12:7-10 (Tries to destroy Jews)

Two witnesses will be in Jerusalem for 3 ½ years. Rev. 11:3; Mal. 4:5 (Elijah + ?)

Jews will flee to wilderness. (Petra / Selah). Matt. 24:15; Isa. 16:1; Rev. 12:6 (3 ½ yrs)

Jews will realize that God is dealing with them. Ezekiel 39:7 (Not today. Rom. 11:25)

“The Great Tribulation”

Jeremiah 30:7; Matthew 24:15

The Second Coming Of Christ – 1,000 Year Reign

(Isaiah 2:4; 11:1ff; 35:1ff; Daniel 2:44, 45; Matthew 24:29, 30; Revelation 19-22)

God’s Purpose For Christ’s millennial reign.

To glorify Himself by fulfilling His covenants (promises) to mankind:  Palestinian (Deuteronomy 30), Davidic (2 Samuel 7:16), New (Jeremiah 31:31-34)

To crush Satan, by ridding this earth of him. Genesis 3:15; Psalm 2:7-9; Rev. 20:1-10

To restore His theocratic kingdom rule to earth. Psalm 2; Isaiah 9:6, 7; Daniel 7:13, 14

To remove the curse from nature. Genesis 3:17; Isaiah 11:1-9; Romans 8:22

Eternity Future

(Isaiah 65:17; 1 Corinthians 15:28; Ephesians 2:7; Revelation 21:1ff)

“Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells [i.e. settles down and feels at home].” 2 Peter 3:13

Conclusion: We believe that the prophecies concerning Christ’s first coming were fulfilled literally. This is the reason why we believe the prophecies about His return to earth in two phases will be fulfilled literally too. These days seem to be very near at hand. They are imminent. It looks like the stage is being set before our eyes. Are you ready for the Rapture? Have you placed your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ alone who died for your sins…and rose again bodily from the grave? If not, why not now? Need assurance?
