End Time Events

The Rapture

The first important end-time occurrence will be the Rapture, which is described for us fairly well in the following Passage. 1 Thes. 4:13-18 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. [14] For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. [15] For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. [16] For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: [17] Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. [18] Wherefore comfort one another with these words. [KJV]

#1 The Rapture is imminent, meaning it could take place at any moment. The apostle Paul thought it might happen in his life time, for twice, he told believers that they might be "translated" without dying. He was very confident and trusted Jesus completely and he included himself in this number. 1 Thes.4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. [KJV] 1 Cor. 15:51-52 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, [52] In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. [KJV] Let us too have Paul’s confidence in Jesus. While NO one can predict when the Rapture will take place (Mat.24:36), we can say with hope "Maybe today."

#2 The Rapture will be discriminating. 1 Thes.4:14-18 clearly teaches that ONLY true believers (born again children of God) will be included in this awesome event! The "dead in Christ" will be called first, then every living believer. We will "be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord." Jesus does NOT come to the Earth at the Rapture. We go to where He is in the clouds! And when we do, we "in the twinkling of an eye, . . . the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed." We shall receive our new glorified bodies in an instant!

The Tribulation

Immediately after the Rapture of the church, those who remain here on Earth (unbelievers and false Christians), will start a 7 year period called the Great Tribulation.

It is also known as Daniel’s 70th week (Dan.9:24-27). It will be characterized by the following events.

#1 The rise of the Antichrist. There will be an extremely powerful world leader come onto the scene. Some think he is alive today. He will be called "the beast," "the willful king," "the wicked one," and "the antichrist" (2 Thes.2:3-4,6; Rev.13:1-10; Dan.11:36; 1 John 2:18). He will make his appearance by establishing a false peace for Israel. He will steadily gain more power and appear to be the savior of society.

#2 War and bloodshed. The prophet Ezekiel describes a war in chapters 38 & 39. Many say that the battle Ezekiel described will occur at the end of human history, but I have trouble believing the war Ezekiel describes is the same war that will take place in the Tribulation, because of the following verse. Ezekiel 39:9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years: (KJV) The entire Tribulation period lasts only 7 years (Daniel’s 70th week), and the first half (3 1/2 years) Israel will be at peace under the peace treaty of Antichrist (Dan.9:27).

Rev. 16:13-14 And I saw three evil spirits that looked like frogs leap from the mouth of the dragon, the beast, and the false prophet. [14] These miracle-working demons caused all the rulers of the world to gather for battle against the Lord on that great judgment day of God Almighty. (NLT) Rev. 16:16 And they gathered all the rulers and their armies to a place called Armageddon in Hebrew. (NLT) It is my humble opinion that Armageddon will not be a quick battle, but a long, drawn out war which will take place during the last 3 1/2 years of the Tribulation. It will end in great victory for Christ! (Rev.19:14-21). Preview of Armageddon (Rev.14:14-20). Events of the war follows.

  • (a) The River Euphrates in Turkey, Syria, and Iraq dries up. (Rev.16:12)(b) Armies from the Orient march toward the Middle East. (Rev.16:12)
  • (c) Satan incites the world’s armies to fight in the Mideast. (Rev.16:14)
  • (d) They all meet in Megiddo or Armageddon (northern Israel). (Rev.16:16)
  • (e) The entire world is aflame with man-made nuclear bombs, and also divine, supernatural catastrophes. (Rev.16:18-21)
  • (f) Christ comes, ending all world conflicts. (Rev.19:14-21)

There are many disagreements as to which war it will be, but regardless of the war, God shall deliver His people . . . NO enemy can stand before His mighty power!

#3 A one-world church. There will be a strong, worldwide religious organization described in Revelation 17 as an evil, immoral woman called BABYLON THE GREAT. She is portrayed as riding a scarlet colored beast. It seems that this universal religion will cooperate with Antichrist in a vicious attack and persecution against all who try to turn to Jesus during the Tribulation (Rev.13:7; 17:6). Antichrist will shortly think this "Harlot" is a threat to him and will completely destroy it (Rev.17:16).

#4 Persecution of the Jews. The Tribulation is called by many names: the Great Tribulation (Mat.24:21-29); time of trouble (Dan.12:1); that day (Luke 21:34-36); the day (Jer.30:4-7); time of Jacob’s trouble (Jer.30:4-7); day of the Lord (Joel 2:1); great and terrible day (Joel 2:31); day of visitation (Isa.10:3); time of their visitation (Jer.46:21); day of recompence (Hos.9:7); dreadful day of the Lord (Mal.4:5); day of the Lord Jesus (1 Cor.5:5); hour of temptation (Rev.3:10); wrath to come (1 Thes.1:10); great day of His wrath (Rev.6:17); beginning of sorrow (Mat.24:8); wrath of the Lamb (Rev.6:16); Daniel’s 70th week (Dan.9:26-27); fiery furnace of God’s wrath (Eze.22:17-22); indignation (Dan.11:36); day of wrath, trouble, distress (Zep.1:15). The Tribulation period (Daniel’s 70th week) is God dealing with the Jews (Dan.9:24-27). At this time they will experience horrendous persecution, worse than they have ever known (Mat.24:15-22). Matthew 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. (KJV) Zechariah predicted that 2/3 of the world’s Jewish population will die (Zec.13:8). Many who finally come to Christ will be martyred. Revelation 7:9-17 reveals there will be a great number who entered Heaven, who came out of the Great Tribulation.

#5 Antichrist’s reign comes to an end. Antichrist will reign only because God allows him to reign. He will be an instrument of judgment used by God to satisfy God’s holy and righteous wrath. But when the 70th week has ended, Antichrist’s reign will end! He will have complete power for just 42 months (3 1/2 years), the last half of the Tribulation period (Dan.9:26-27; Rev.13:5). This will be a time of God’s outpouring of His wrath against all evil against Israel and all nations.

Christ’s Glorious Return

The Tribulation will be brought to a dramatic conclusion (Dan.11:36-45; Zech.14). Zech. 14:4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. (KJV) On His Return, as soon as Jesus’ Feet touch the Mount of Olives, great topographical changes will occur. In the final battle of Armageddon, the armies of Antichrist will be completely destroyed by the KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. Believing Israelites will then weep in repentance (Zech.12:10).

Judgment

#1 The judgment of Israel. Christ, the Almighty Judge, will decide who qualifies for His Kingdom, and what roles they will have (Eze.20:30-44). It will be at this time that Jesus shall decide who will enter into eternal punishment, and who will enter the Millennium.

#2 The judgment of the nations (non Jews). All living Gentiles will also be judged at this time (Joel 3:2; Mat.31-46). Jesus will decide who will go into eternal punishment, and who will go into the Millennium. All those unbelieving Gentiles who have died before this time, will be resurrected after the Millennium for their judgment (Rev.20:5, 11-15).

Christ’s Glorious Reign, the Millennial Kingdom

When Jesus returns He will also begin a 1000 year reign on Earth as KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. This reign of Christ will be marked by the following.

#1 The restoration of nature. The pristine beauty of the Earth that has been destroyed by man, shall be restored. Deserts will become wonderful productive gardens, and animal life will change drastically (Isa.11:6-8; 30:25-26; 35:1-7; Hos.2:18).

#2 The end of physical suffering. Anyone who enters the Millennium with any kind of deformity will be healed (Isa.35:5-6). Lifespans will be longer (Isa.65:22). Marriages will be happy (Jer.33:11). Children will play in the streets (Zech.8:5).

#3 Peace and justice. The KING (Jesus) will rule the Earth from Jerusalem. It is from there that He will oversee worldwide peace and justice (Isa.2:3-4; Zech.3:10). There will be no more war in Jesus’ Kingdom (Isa.2:4; Rev. 20:1-6).

#4 Spiritual worship. In the Millennium, people everywhere shall love the Lord and worship Him gratefully, gladly and willingly, as it should be (Mal.1:11; Zech.14:16). The purpose and plan of God’s creating the world will be realized and understood in this prospering kingdom ruled by the Lord Jesus.

The Final Rebellion

Sin will not be absolutely abolished in the Millennium. Men will still be in the flesh (Isaiah 65:20). But, sin will no longer be a universal power, for the flesh is not any longer seduced by Satan who has been imprisoned. He will not be, as he is now, "the god and prince of the world." Christ will reign with His transfigured (raptured) saints over men in the flesh. This will be the revelation of "the world to come."

People will still have the desire to sin, even in the perfect conditions of the Millennium. They will obey God only because they are afraid not to. Satan, who was bound at the beginning of the Millennium (Rev.20:1-3), will be freed for a short period of time. The dragon will not be bound as punishment, that occurs in Rev. 20:10. He was bound so he cannot deceive the nations. But at the end of the Millennium (1000 years), God will free him. WHY free him? So many people ask. It will be a final test from God, to expose those who rebel against God in their hearts and confirm those who are truly faithful to God. Satan’s release will result in the final destruction of all evil (Rev. 20:12-15).

Satan will immediately start a world-wide rebellion. War! again war! Many men and women who were in the Millennium will join Satan and his demon army. He will stage one, final all-out attack on God. Will he win? NO! God will send down fire from Heaven and devour all the evil forces (Rev.20:9). Satan will then be stopped forever! Rev. 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. (KJV) Satan will be cast into Hell which was prepared for him and all who follow him (Mat.25:41), where he will spend eternity.

It amazes me that more people do not take advantage of God’s grace and God’s GIFT (salvation through faith in Christ). Why do people follow Satan when it is SO clear that he is doomed to the pits of Hell?

The World Destroyed and Judged

Closely linked to Satan’s final rebellion, is the destruction of this present day world as we know it (Rev.20:11; 2 Pet.3:10; Isa.24:19; 34:4; 51:6). Out of the devastation of the Earth’s destruction by fire, will emerge a bright, new and glorious world. It will be at this time, that the unsaved of all ages will be resurrected (Dan.12:1-2) to stand before the Great White Throne Judgment (Rev.20:11-15) and will receive punishment for all they have ever done, and be cast into the Lake of Fire. This judgment will absolutely be fair and just. ALL will finally acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of the Father (Phil.2:11), but it will be too late for them to be saved.

The World Transformed

The apostle John saw emerging "a new Heaven and a new Earth" (Rev. 20:10). He describes the New Jerusalem descending from Heaven to the transformed Earth. This pristine new world will be beautiful beyond words. Nothing that caused sorrow will be permitted to enter in. Nothing will mar the happiness of its inhabitants. There will be NO tears, NO sorrow, NO pain (Rev.20:4). NO violence, NO rebellion, NO lawlessness, NO war, NO immorality (Rev.21:27) ever again! WOW!!!

We will see our God in all His majestic glory. We will enjoy His Presence forever more. We will worship Him out of a love filled and grateful heart and soul.

No temple will be in Heaven, for God Himself is our Temple (Rev.21:22). No sun or moon will be needed as light, for Godís brilliance will lighten it (Rev.21:23). All through out eternity we will abound in spiritual love, joy, peace and contentment. We will have eternity to adore our precious Saviour and Lord for we shall forever be with Him in the bliss of Heaven.
