End Times Chronology and the Rapture of the Church
« on: February 12, 2012, 11:39:56 PM »

The prophetic chronological order of end times events as outlined in the Bible are as follows:

1. The very next prophetic event to take place will be the rapture of the Church, consisting of everyone who believes in Jesus Christ as Lord, regardless of denomination, or no denomination at all, as taught by both Jesus as well as the apostle Paul.  In Jn.14:2-4, 28; 1 Thes.4:13-18; 2 Thes.2:1-8; Rev.3:10 and 4:1-2. All those who died in Christ, to all those who are still alive at His appearing in the clouds of the sky, for His Church, where we will all meet Jesus, when He will take us to our Father in heaven, as He promised us in Jn.14:2-4 and 28.

 2. The rapture of the Christian Church of Jesus Christ preceeds the revealing of the man of lawlessness/beast/antichrist, according to 2 Thes.2:3-4 and 7-8.  Which then immediately sets off the seven years of tribulation, as recorded in Mt.24:4-31, in perfect harmony with Dan.9:27 and the person who is all three of the "he's" in that verse, and the rider of the white horse in Rev.6:2, all of whom are the antichrist.  It is at this stage of end times chronology the 70 Weeks prophecy of Dan.9:27 will begin.

 3. The tribulation is revealed in Jer.30:4-7, referred to as "Jacob's Trouble," and in Dan.9:27, the 70th and final week of God's decree upon the destiny of Israel.  In God's revelation to the prophet Daniel, through the angel Gabriel, the 70 "Weeks" [7 years each] of years He has decreed upon the entire history of Israel, from the end of their 70 year exile, the seven year length of time involved in the tribulation, is revealed, along with the person who will set it off. The antichrist, the "he" who will establish a seven year covenant/agreement with them. Dan.9:27. 

Jesus amplified and confirmed Daniel's 70th and final "Week," consisting of the abomination that causes desolation, in Mt.24:[15] 4-31and the counterparts in Mk.13 and in Lk.21.

 4. The fig trees have sprouted leaves, we can see for ourselves and know that summer is near. Lk.21:29. Which began with the new nation of Israel, when it was established on May 14, 1948, 63 years ago..

 5. The Christian Church of Jesus Christ is in heaven, symbolically illustrated by the apostle John in Rev.4:1-2, as prophecied in Jn.14:2-4, 28 and 1 Thes.4:16-17, while Israel and all non-believers will go through the seven year tribulation. The Church is not seen again until the wedding of the Lamb [Jesus Christ] takes place with the Bride [His Church] in heaven. Rev.19:7-9.

 6. Jesus will return - with His Church following Him on white horses, dressed in fine linen, white and clean, which stands for the righteous acts of the saints [Vs 8 NIV].  In His Second Coming to the earth - and His angels - in His armies from heaven, in Zech.14:4-5, Mt.24:31, Jude 14, and Rev.19:14.

7. Jesus will end the battle of Armageddon, save the remnant of Israel, who then recognize Him as their Messiah [Zech.12:10], and "all  Israel will be saved" [Rom.11:26]. The antichrist and the false prophet will be thrown into the lake of fire, and the armies of the ten horns [nations] are destroyed. Rev19:17-21. Jesus prophecy in Jn.10:16 will then be fulfilled, when there will be one fold [Israel and His Church] and one Shepherd.  It is at this stage of end times chronology the 70 Weeks prophey in Dan.9:27 will end.

 8. Satan is caught and thrown into the Abyss for the same 1,000 years that Jesus will reign, in His kingdom here on the earth. Rev.20:1-3,4 and 6.

 9. The first resurrection takes place which consists of all those brought to the Lord during the tribulation by the 144,000 Israelite evangelists.  They will be martyred during the tribulation, by the two beasts, the antichrist, the false prophet and the ten horns [nations] allied to them.  The tribulation saints will not be believers in Jesus Christ at the time the tribulation begins. Therefore, they do not belong to the Christian Church that will be raptured before the seven year tribulation begins. They will be priests of God and of Christ, and rule with Him for 1,000 years, after their resurrection, according to Rev.20:4 and 6, because most all of them will pay with their lives for receiving Jesus as their Lord, by the antichrist, the false prophet and the ten horns [nations] allied to them..

 10. The Millennial Kingdom of Christ will consist of all those who survived the tribulation, besides the resurrected martyrs, and all the remnant of Israel. In numbers alone, from an estimated original 7 billion people, there will only be 2.3 billion remaining according to Zech.13:8. Life expectancy will be greatly increased. Isa.65:20 and 11:6-9.

 11. Jesus 1,000 kingdom will end here on the earth at the same time the 1,000 years Satan will be in the Abyss, and he will be released and go out to deceive the people and nations again in his last rebellion against God.  He will gather millions of people who come against God's people surrounding Jerusalem. But God will send fire down from heaven, as He did at Sodom and Gomorrah, destroying them all, and then throw Satan into the lake of fire. Rev.20:7-10.

 12. The second resurrection takes place that consists of all those who will be saved during the Millennial reign of Jesus here on the earth, the Godless and wicked and the great white throne is set up to judge them, right here on earth. The sea, death and Hades all give up their dead and will then be thrown into the lake of fire. Meaning, that all who were in the 'temporal holding tanks' of Sheol, Hades and Hell will be removed to face judgement, and along with death, disposed of forever. For all those who participate in the second resurrection, if their name is not found in the book of life, they will be thrown into the lake of fire forever. Rev.20:11-15, and Dan.12:2 and Mt.25:46 will be fulfilled.

 13. The old heaven and earth will pass away and God will provide an all new heaven and earth, and the new eternal city of Jerusalem will descend from heaven, 1,500 miles long and as wide as it is long and as high as it is wide, Rev.21:1-7.

 14. The rest of chapters 21-22 allude to a description of the coming eternal city and life of all believers who will be with the Lord forever.

Religious Lie: "God only paid for sins until the next time you sin."
Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
