How Do We Know If We Are In The Last Days or End-Times?

Revelations; We Are In the Last Days!

 Revelation 1:3 “Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.”

Luke 21:25-28 (NKJV)
 25 “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth
distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; 26 men’s
hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are
coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 27 Then they
will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 Now
when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because
your redemption draws near

“We are truly living in the Last Hour of the Last Days. Each day as we watch
international news, we witness the unfolding of the Book of Revelation.” – Dr.
James Lee, River of Life Ministries.

“We are in the 11
th hour generation and we are the last generation
we are seeing signs, wonders and miracles.  This is the end times when we are
seeing culmination of all previous revivals and this will continue until the 12
when Jesus returns
Comments made by Perry Stone on his program Manna Feast 4/14/08.

First I want to make it clear that no one knows the time of  Jesus’ return, not
the Son; only God the Father.  Matthew 24:36 (NKJV) “But of that day and hour no
one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only”.

Having said that, we do not know the time; however we do know the season by
watching the signs.  As you study God’s word, you will find that there are signs
for the Rapture and of His second coming or Glorious Appearing. Let us look to
see what scripture says about His return. The Bible promises the return of
Jesus. In the 216 chapters in the New Testament there are over 300 references to
the return of Jesus. 23 of the 27 books of the New Testament mention Christ’s
return. The Old Testament prophets, Job, Moses, David, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel
and most of the Minor Prophets, all spoke of Christ’s return. The early church
taught Jesus would return and Jesus himself promised he would come back at the
end of days.

I would like to make a distinction between the rapture and the second coming of
Christ because they are two different events.  Further, what often escapes the
attention of most Christians is the fact that prophetic signs pointing to the
2nd Coming will also be found during the tribulation period, that seven-year
period of hell-on-earth that will follow the rapture.  The church, certainly,
will not see the fulfillment of those post-rapture signs from an earthly
perspective because she will be in heaven with her Lord.  There will, however,
be a great multitude of those left behind after the rapture that will see these
events and know exactly what they mean.  Taking a stand on what they know will
cost them their heads (A Multitude from the Great Tribulation Revelation 7:9;

Signs for the Rapture; 
are 7 signs, however, they are not all inclusive)

1.      The Rebirth of the nation of Israel on May 14, 1948Isaiah
66:8 (NKJV)
 “Who has heard such a thing?  Who has seen such things?
Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day?  Or shall a nation be born at
once?  For as soon as Zion was in labor, She gave birth to her children.

Who would have believed that a Nation would or could be reborn in a day, well Israel
was!  This is probably the most significant event to occur in world history.
Never has a people, an entire race that was displaced and brought back to their
former homeland.  This land was promised to Israel by God, granted to them

Gen 17:7

“And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after
you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your
descendants after you.

Since the time of the rebirthing of Israel many other bible prophecies have been
fulfilled, including this one where Israel will be hated by all nations.
Mat 24:9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you
will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake

About sixty years ago, the Jewish homeland began a rebirth, as Jesus proclaimed
through His written word. The migration continues, over the past 100 years from
all parts of the world the migration population is about is about 12% of the
total population. There are still more Jews in various parts around the world
that will return, as many as 100,000.

It did not matter where they were or what conditions they lived in, in time of
peace or war, the Jewish people kept the Passover, giving thanks to God for
bringing out of Egypt to the Promise Land; Israel.  Where they continue to come
and fulfill Bible prophecies.

2.  Israel will have control of Jerusalem, during the 6-day war in 1967.  Luke
21:24 (NKJV) 24 “and they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away
captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the
times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.”   Mark 13:30 “Verily I say unto you, that
this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.

Jesus prophesied this in Luke 21:24. After the Jewish were scattered almost 2000
years they were reborn as a Nation in 1948, now in 1967 they have control

Now known as the 1967 Arab-Israeli War, Six Days’ War, (The Setback). The Arab
states of Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria also
contributed troops and arms to the Arab forces. The shortest war ever recorded
in history.

3.      The Reunification of Europe; Daniel saw a revived Roman Empire
(Reunification of Europe).  Daniel 7:23-25 (NKJV) 23 “Thus he said: The
fourth beast shall be a fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from
all other kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, Trample it and break it in
pieces. 24 The ten horns are ten kings Who shall arise from this kingdom. And
another shall rise after them; He shall be different from the first ones And
shall subdue three kings. 25 He shall speak pompous words against the Most High,
Shall persecute
[a] the
saints of the Most High, and shall intend to change times and law. Then the
saints shall be given into his hand for a time and times and half a time.”

European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) May 1st, 2004 an historic moment in
the Reunification of Europe. The date of May 1st, 2004 constitutes an
historic moment in European Integration. It signifies much more than an
enlargement of the European Union from 15 to 25 countries with 455 million
inhabitants. It is in fact a real reunification of Europe which the Second World
War had left divided against the will of its citizens.

The reunification of Europe is stepping stone in creating world systems; banking,
religion and new world order ultimately, this will usher in the first world
leader, the Anti-Christ.

Outpouring of the Holy Spirit;  Acts 2:17-19.  “And it shall come to pass in the last
days, says God, That I will pour out  My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your
daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall
dream dreams, and on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My
Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy.  I will show wonders in heaven
above and signs in the earth beneath: blood and fire and vapor of smoke.”

When the “Magic Kingdom” Starts Looking Like God’s Kingdom

Aimee Herd (June 23, 2009)

When a group of Christian youth visiting Disneyland pray for one young man and
he’s healed instantly, many other healings and salvations suddenly break out.

Jesus made a visit to Disneyland recently (in the form of healings and
salvations), according to a blog by Jason Chin on the website for Bethel Church
in Redding, CA. A small group from Bethel went down to Disneyland for a day of
fun, but God had much more than that planned for them. As Jason says, “It made
the happiest place on Earth even happier!” And don’t miss the YouTube video,
which was recorded while the young people prayed for others in the food court at
Disneyland’s “Frontierland.”

This past week has been amazing but now we are entering our 8th week starting

Last week we not only had amazing miracles, healings, signs and wonders as usual but
also some amazing salvations including a Muslim woman from Somalia. Another man
suddenly approached the stage where David was preaching and began to yell out
seemingly angrily as he had been obviously been drinking, “I am a Native
American and served in the Marines!”
 With that David began to explain the
role of Native Americans in the revival of American and how we needed to honor
them and include them as one of the keys to a national awakening and how it had
to touch them as he has said many times before, he also honored those that
served in the armed forces. To make a long story short, the man that night
received Jesus as His Lord and Savior!

There is such a great grace as the glory, presence and joy of the Lord not only
shows up but is ever present from before we walk in!. Even David Wagner, a
prophetic minister friend who came last week had just had 2nd degree burns on
his arm. When he walked into the building
 suddenly they disappeared.
Another lady noticed that her tumor of many years just disappeared.
are many atmospheric miracles plus the miracles that come through word of
knowledge. It’s not so much the miracles but the Glory and Presence of God
behind the miracles. Besides the tumors and deaf ears people continue to receive
major instant weight loss and new teeth almost every night! 

The Portland Outpouring i
a regional revival with the church coming together, ignited by the fire of the
Holy Spirit. A fresh wave of the Holy Spirit is breaking upon America and we
want to welcome what God is pouring out to our city.

Louisiana Outpouring;
December of 2002, a group of spiritual leaders throughout the state assembled to
discuss the same frustration – Louisiana’s desperate need of a touch from God.
All had attended conferences and crusades that promised much, but left much to
be desired. The key elements were missing. Where was the anointed worship,
tarrying in prayer, and powerful prophetic preaching? Where was the fire that
fell at Pentecost, the awakening anointing that accompanied John Wesley and that
birthed Azuza Street? When would Louisiana’s turn come?

God’s Spirit Poured Out

Joel 2:28-29 “And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit
on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall
dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.  29 And also on My menservants
and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.”

 Increase of technology, Daniel 12:4 (NKJV) “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and
seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and
knowledge shall increase.”

Revelation 13:16-17 (NKJV) “He causes all, both small and great, rich and
poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their
foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or
[a] the
name of the beast, or the number of his name.”
The End Times Intelligence Reports (ETIR) – Saturday, September 8, 2007 

has scored a major victory in its quest to large-scale human chip implantation.
Through its Verimed service offering, Verichip will implant RFID chips in over
200 Alzheimer’s patients in Palm Beach County, Florida. This company is quietly
building its case for wide-scale, forced human chip implantation in Congress and

The End Times Intelligence Reports (ETIR) believes that widespread human chip
implantation will play out in the following major scenarios:

systems of medical monitoring and ID screening.

Implantable chips have long been discussed by technologists and
denounced by those who object on religious grounds or fear their use by
a totalitarian state. But the company that did the test, Applied Digital
Solutions, said the specter of terrorism is shifting attitudes. The

Oct. 3, 2008
DEBKAfile, a news website that uses information networks to keep an eye on the Middle East, has in their report for the week ending October 2, 2008, outlined a series of
events that show Russia and Iran are stepping up their alliance with each other
and other anti-Western nations like Syria and Venezuela. Their desired outcome
being, for those who know what the Bible calls the Gog-Magog Invasion of Ezekiel
38-39, is to attack and destroy Israel.

Ultimately, nations from the Middle East will rise up, along with Russia will
attack Israel; this attack will be unsuccessful.  Why, because Israel is under
the protection of God.  The people and the land that they are attacking are
God’s chosen people and the land was given to Israel by God, forever.

Signs of Nature; Matthew 24:7 (NKJV) “For nation will rise against nation, and
kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes

Many go undetected because they hit remote areas or have very small magnitudes.

The 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake was an undersea megathrust earthquake that occurred
at 00:58:53 UTC on December 26, 2004, with an 
epicentre off
the west coast of Sumatra, Indonesia. The quake itself is known by the
scientific community as the Sumatra-Andaman earthquake.The resulting 
tsunami itself
is given various names, including the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, Asian Tsunami,
Indonesian Tsunami, and Boxing Day Tsunami.

The earthquake was caused by subduction and
triggered a series of devastating tsunami along the coasts of most landmasses
bordering the Indian Ocean, killing more than 225,000 people in eleven
countries, and inundating coastal communities with waves up to 30 meters
(100 feet) high. It was one of the deadliest natural disasters in recorded
history. Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, and Thailand were the hardest hit.

With a magnitude of between 9.1 and 9.3, it is the second largest earthquake ever
recorded on a seismograph. This earthquake had the longest duration of faulting
ever observed, between 8.3 and 10 minutes. It caused the entire planet to
vibrate as much as 1 cm (0.4 inches) and triggered other earthquakes as far away
as Alaska.

The Japanese archipelago is located in an area where several continental and
oceanic plates meet. This is the cause for frequent earthquakes and the presence
of many volcanoes and hot springs across Japan. If earthquakes occur below or
close to the ocean, they may trigger tidal waves (tsunami).

When the Rapture occurs, what happens to those who are in  Heaven?; 1 Corinthians
15:51-52 (NKJV) “Behold, I tell 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
trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible,
and we shall be changed.”

When we are caught-up or raptured, what will we experience in Heaven while those who
do not know Christ are left behind? 

We will have seven years in Heaven where we will be judged, rewarded and celebrate
as the Bride of Christ in the Marriage of the Lamb and after that we will return
with the Glorious Appearing of Christ:


.  The Judgment Seat of Christ (*The Bema); Romans 14:10-12 says, “For we
will all stand before God’s judgment seat…so then, each of us will give an
account of himself to God.” 
2 Corinthians 5:10 tells us, “For we must all
appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due
him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.”

The Bema (from the 
Greekbema, “step”) means a raised platform. In antiquity it was probably made of stone, but
in modern times it is usually a rectangular wooden platform approached by steps.

2 Corinthians 5:10-11 (Amplified Bible) 10For we must all appear and be revealed as we are before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive [his pay] according to what he has done in the
body, whether good or evil [considering what his purpose and motive have been,
and what he has achieved, been busy with, and given himself and his attention to
being conscious of fearing the Lord with respect and reverence, we seek to win
people over [to persuade them]. But what sort of persons we are is plainly
recognized and thoroughly understood by God, and I hope that it is plainly
recognized and thoroughly understood also by your consciences (your inborn

In the context of the above Scriptures, it is clear that they are referring to
Christians, not unbelievers. The Judgment Seat of Christ, therefore, involves
believers giving an account of their lives to Christ. The Judgment Seat of
Christ does not determine salvation; that was determined by Christ’s sacrifice
on our behalf (1 John 2:2), and our faith in Him (John 3:16). All of our sins
are forgiven and we will never be condemned for them (Romans 8:1).

We should not look at the Judgment Seat of Christ as God judging our sins; the
Judgment Seat of Christ cannot be a judgment for the sins of a Christian since
Christ paid the full price for all of the believer’s sins whether past, present
or future, but rather as God rewarding us for our lives. Yes, as the Scriptures
say, we will have to give an account of our lives. The primary focus of the
Judgment Seat of Christ on what we did or did not do in the body, our rewards
will be judged on what we did for Christ.


.  Believers
are rewarded based on how faithfully they served Christ
. There are five
crowns discussed in the New Testament of the Bible.  The crowns can more
appropriately be called wreaths, or garlands, like the ones worn on the heads of
athletic champions. The garlands will be our prizes when it comes time for God
to hand out awards to born again believers. They will be the awards for our walk
and stand for God and His Word. They are not available to us now, but we will
receive them after Christ’s return.

Crown of Rejoicing: I Thessalonians 2: 19, 20; Soul Winner’s C
 1Th 2:19-20 For who is our hope or joy or crown of exultation? Is it
not even you, in the presence of our Lord Jesus at His coming? 20 For you are
our glory and joy.

2Ti 4:7-8 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I
have kept the faith:

righteous judge, shall give to me at that day; and not to me only, but also to
all them that have loved his appearing

Crown of Life: James 1: 12; Martyr’s Crown

Jam 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation; for when he
hath been approved, he shall receive the crown of life, which [the Lord]
promised to them that love him.

Crown of Glory: I Peter 5: 1–4; Elder’s Crown

1Pe 5:1-4 The elders among you I exhort, who am a fellow-elder, and a
witness of the sufferings of Christ, who am also a partaker of the glory that
shall be revealed: 2 Tend the flock of God which is among you, exercising the
oversight, not of constraint, but willingly, according to [the will of] God; nor
yet for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; 3 neither as lording it over the
charge allotted to you, but making yourselves ensamples to the flock. 4 And when
the chief Shepherd shall be manifested, ye shall receive the crown of glory that
fadeth not away.

Incorruptible Crown: 1 Corinthians 9:25; The Victor’s Crown

1Cr 9:25 And every man that striveth in the games exerciseth
self-control in all things. Now they [do it] to receive a corruptible crown; but
we an incorruptible

five crowns will be part of our reward we receive after the return of Christ.
The Word of God tells us some things about the crowns, but not everything. A big
part of the reward will be the surprise of finding out everything about our new
life, and the privileges and responsibilities that go with it. For now, we can
do the best we can for God, and look forward to the Hope, the return of Jesus


Marriage of the Lamb


Between the Rapture and the return of Christ
the earth two events concerning the church will take place; the judgment seat of
Christ and the marriage of the Lamb.  The Bride is depicted as wearing “fine
linen, clean and white; for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints” (Rev.
19:7,8).  This could only be possible if the church has completed her
examination at the judgment seat of Christ.  Therefore, the marriage of the Lamb
would be prior to the return of Christ in Revelation 19:11-21.


marriage of the Lamb will be one of the most magnificent events in all of human
It will be the consummation of all the hopes and desires of the Father for His
Son.  The bride is none other than the New Testament church, which is to become
the Lamb’s wife.  The New Testament church will include those believers from
Pentecost (Acts 2) to the Rapture (1 Thess. 4:16-17; 1 Cor. 15:51-52).  The
church is described in the New Testament as the Bride of Christ (Rev. 21:2, 9;
22:17; Eph. 5:25 .) as well as a virgin espoused to her husband (2 Cor. 11:2).
Christ is pictured as the bridegroom of the Bride (the church) in the New
Testament.  The marriage of the Lamb is a heavenly scene, while passages
depicting Israel are presented in an earthly setting.


will be the participants in the marriage supper of the Lamb?
marriage of the Lamb will involve only the Bridegroom and the Bride, which are
Christ and the church.  John the Baptist related that he was only a “friend of
the bridegroom” (John 3:29).  Israel, the Old Testament saints, and Tribulation
saints will obviously be guests at the wedding gala, along with myriads of the
angelic hosts.  Revelation 19:9 Then he said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are
those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!’” And he said to me,
“These are the true sayings of God”.

Signs of the Second Coming of Christ; (here are 7 signs, however, they not all
inclusive). These signs or prophecies will be fulfilled during the Tribulation,
while the Church has been Raptured; These are exclusive Tribulations events:


beginning of the Tribulation, 
rapture will happen it is believed in a time of peace right before the seven
year tribulation. When the Anti-Christ signs a peace treaty with Israel.
Daniel 9:27 (NKJV)
 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one
week; But in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and
offering.  And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even
until the consummation, which is determined, is poured out on the desolate.”


rise of One World Religion; Revelation 13:3
all the world marveled and followed the beast.”  When Satan comes as the beast
he will have so much power and authority that the whole world will marvel.
Almost everyone in the world will worship the beast. 

A few people will choose to worship the Lamb instead of the beast. Jesus is called
the Lamb and Satan is called the beast. The people who choose to worship the
Lamb will have their names written in the Lamb’s book of life. Everyone else
will worship the beast. 

 Revelation 13:8  “All
who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in
the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”

3.     The
war of Gog and Magog; 
38 through 39 tells of a future invasion of Israel by a vast coalition of
nations that surround it.  As we read the headlines in the newspapers of today,
and witness the conflict in the Middle East, it’s not hard to imagine that this
invasion prophesied over 2600 years ago, could be fulfilled in our lifetime.
Ezekiel 36-37 predicts a gathering of the Jews to the nation of Israel, which
will be followed by this massive invasion.  For 19 centuries the Jewish people
were scattered throughout the world, and until May 14, 1948 there was no nation
of Israel to invade. With the nation of Israel now a reality, the stage seems
set for the war that will usher in the tribulation and the rise of the
Antichrist; a war that will end with the destruction of Israel’s enemies by God
Himself, and lead to the signing of a peace treaty with the Antichrist.  This
means that this battle may take before the tribulation, probably after the
Rapture.  If you look at:

Ezekiel 38:9 Then those who dwell in the cities of Israel will go out and set
on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and bucklers, the bows and
arrows, the javelins and spears; and they will make fires with them for seven

Since the Tribulation last seven years, burning weapons for seven years would
indicate the Battle would occur right around the beginning the Tribulation.
This event would either have to come at the very beginning of the tribulation or
before to allow seven full years.

Note: Amazingly, Russia has been using Lignostone in the production of its
weapons.  Lignostone “is a special kind of wood and it is stronger than steel,
is very elastic… and it burns better than coal.”

Ezekiel 38:1-9 (NKJV)  “Now the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 2 “Son
of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh,
Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him, 3 and say, ‘Thus says the Lord
GOD: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. 4
I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all
your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with
bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. 5 Persia, Ethiopia and Libya
are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; 6 Gomer and all its troops;
the house of Togarmah from the far north and all its troops—many people are with
7 “Prepare yourself and be ready, you and all your companies that are gathered
about you; and be a guard for them. 8 After many days you will be visited. In
the latter years you will come into the land of those brought back from the
sword and gathered from many people on the mountains of Israel, which had long
been desolate; they were brought out of the nations, and now all of them dwell
safely. 9 You will ascend, coming like a storm, covering the land like a cloud,
you and all your troops and many peoples with you.”

Rebuilding of the Temple; Revelation 11:1 (NKJV)
I was given a reed like a measuring rod. And the angel stood, saying, “Rise and
measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there.”

This is all a part of God’s plan. From 70 A.D. until 1948, the Jewish people had no
homeland. In 1948 the nation of Israel was reborn. However, the Temple Mount was
still held by the nation of Jordan. When the temple area was recaptured in 1967,
the Jews wept. The joy of the Jewish people was quickly dashed to pieces. A few
hours after the recapture, Moshe Dayan, the Defense Minister of Israel,
announced that the Temple Mount would remain under Arab control. The rejoicing
of the Jews was turned to sorrow, This action to religious Jews was absolutely
beyond comprehension. Jews still cannot go to the Temple Mount area to pray, to
offer sacrifices, and, above all, to build their Third Temple. This temple will
be rebuilt very soon. There are many organizations right now who have almost all
the temple instruments and materials pre-made for the day when they will rebuild
the temple.

Matthew 24:15, II Thessalonians 2:4, and Revelation 11:1 state that the Jewish
Temple will be rebuilt in these endtimes.

Matthew 24:15 (NKJV)
Great Tribulation 
Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of
desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” 
reads, let him understand),

2 Thessalonians 2:4 (NKJV) who
opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so
that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

the mark of the beast, Revelation 13:16-17 (NKJV)
causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a
mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or
sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his

If you worship the beast and receive the mark of the beast you will receive the
complete wrath of God. The book of Revelation in the Bible gives us this strong

two Witnesses, Revelation 11:3-10 (NKJV) “
I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two
hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.”
4 These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands standing before the God
of the earth. 5 And if anyone wants to harm them, fire proceeds from their mouth
and devours their enemies. And if anyone wants to harm them, he must be killed
in this manner. 6 These have power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls in the
days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood,
and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire.”

The Witnesses Killed

7 “When they finish their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless
pit will make war against them, overcome them, and kill them. 8 And their dead
bodies will lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called
Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. 9 Then those from the
peoples, tribes, tongues, and nations will see their dead bodies
three-and-a-half days, and not allow their dead bodies to be put into graves. 10
And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, make merry, and send
gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on
the earth

The two witnesses are killed by the Antichrist 1260 days into the seven year
tribulation that starts after the rapture. In addition to this, Scripture tells
us the Antichrist will break his promise to Israel in the midst of the 7 year
tribulation or 1260 days.  So there is exactly 3 1/2 years left till the return
of Christ!

battle of Armageddon; Revelation 16:13-21 (NKJV)
I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon,
out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 For
they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the
earth and
[a] of
the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
15 “Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his
garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.”
16 And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon.”

Zechariah 14:4
that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of
Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from
east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move
toward the north and the other half toward the south.”

The word Armageddon comes from a Hebrew word Har-Magedone which means “Mount
Megiddo” and has become synonymous with the future battle in which God will
intervene and destroy the armies of the Antichrist as predicted in biblical
prophecy (Revelation 16:16; 20:1-3, 7-10). There will be millions of people
engaged in the Battle of Armageddon, as all the nations gather together to fight
against Christ.

When the tribulation begins and it will happen, because it is prophesied in the
Bible.  It has been described by Hebrew prophets as, “time of Jacob’s trouble”
and in the New Testament it is called “the wrath of God” and “the day of the
Lord” and clearly will be “hell on earth”.

If you do not Know Christ as your Savior, this would be a good time to make that
decision (
see Sinners Prayer, ).
If not, and all of a sudden millions of people are mysteriously missing, then
you will know the Tribulation is about to begin.  Once the Anti-Christ is
revealed and signs a 7-year treaty with Israel, the Tribulation begins.  Again,
this would be a good time to call on the only name that saves; Jesus.  If you
call on His Name you will experience tribulation, but you will be covered by the
Blood of Jesus your Savior and Protector.

Tribulation has begun; What will happened to those left behind on earth?

This is a period of trial and tribulation for the Jewish people (time of Jacob’s
trouble) and those remaining that have rejected God’s free gift of salvation
though Jesus.  There will be judgments; 3 sets of 7 judgments or 21 in total.
The first 2 sets (seal judgments and the trumpets judgments) will occur in the
first half of the tribulation or the first 3 ½ years.  The second half will be
more severe than the first half with the remaining 7 Judgments (Bowl
Judgments).  If this was not stopped by the Glorious Appearing of Christ during
the 7
th Bowl
Judgment no one would be left alive, that’s how severe it would be.

Who are the key figures during the Tribulation?

1.      Woman – Israel; Revelation 12:1-2 & 6  Now
a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon
under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. 2 Then being with
child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.  6 Then the woman fled
into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should
feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty day.”

2.     Dragon – Satan; Revelation 12:3-4 & 9 And
another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven
heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. 4 His tail drew a third of
the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the
woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born.
9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and
Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels
were cast out with him.”

3.     Male
Child – Christ; Revelation 12:5  
bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child
was caught up to God and His throne.”

4.     Michael – The Archangel; Revelation 12:7 & 8  “And
war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the
dragon and his angels fought, 8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found
for them in heaven any longer.”

5.      Remnant – Saved Israel; Revelation 12:13-17  Now
when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman
who gave birth to the male Child. 14 But the woman was given two wings of a
great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is
nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the
serpent. 15 So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the
woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. 16 But the earth
helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood
which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 17 And the dragon was enraged with
the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the
commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”

6.     Antichrist – Beast  of the Sea; Revelation 13:1-10 Then
I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea,
having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads
a blasphemous name. 2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet
were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon
gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. 3 And I saw one of his
heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And
all the world marveled and followed the beast. 4 So they worshiped the dragon
who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is
like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”
5 And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was
given authority to continue for forty-two months. 6 Then he opened his mouth in
blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who
dwell in heaven. 7 It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to
overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.
8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written
in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear. 10 He who leads into captivity shall go
into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here
is the patience and the faith of the saints.”

7.      False Prophet – Beast out of the Earth; Revelation 13:11-18 Then
I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb
and spoke like a dragon. 12 And he exercises all the authority of the first
beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship
the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs, so
that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.
14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was
granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to
make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was
granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the
beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the
beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free
and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and
that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the
beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the
beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

The First Half of the Tribulation (Seal and Trumpet Judgments):

The Seven Seal Judgments

1.      White Horse – Conquering Power – First Seal: The Conqueror; Revelation
Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one
of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, “Come and see.” 2
And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown
was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer

We see here the Antichrist or “man of sin” who rises up at that time.  He will
conquer though diplomacy and peace.

2.     Red
Horse – War and Bloodshed  – Second Seal: Conflict on Earth; Revelation 6:3,4
He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come and
see.” 4 Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who
sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another;
and there was given to him a great sword.”

Peace is taken from the world by erupting into war.

3.     Black Horse – Famine – Third Seal: Scarcity on Earth; ; Revelation 6:5-6 “When
He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.”
So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of
scales in his hand. 6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living
creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley
for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.”

We will see a world wide famine. Bread will cost a day’s wages.

4.     Pale
Horse – Pestilence and Death – Fourth Seal: Widespread Death on Earth;
Revelation 6: 7-8
He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature
saying, “Come and see.” 8 So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of
him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to
them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death,
and by the beast of the earth. “

One forth of the populations will die though war, hunger and wild animals.

5.      Souls Under the Altar – Martyrs – Fifth Seal: The Cry of the Martyrs; Revelation
He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been
slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. 10 And they
cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You
judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” 11 Then a white
robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a
little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their
brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed.”

These are the martyrs that accepted Christ during the tribulation and were
beheaded for their fait

6.     Great Earthquakes – Sixth Seal: Cosmic Disturbances; Revelation 6:12-17  I
looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake;
and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon
[f] became
like blood. 13 And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops
its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. 14 Then the sky receded as a
scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its
place. 15 And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the
commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in
the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, 16 and said to the mountains and
rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and
from the wrath of the Lamb! 17 For the great day of His wrath has come, and who
is able to stand?”

These will be the most devastating earthquakes since the flood, millions will

7.      Silence, Golden Censer – Seventh Seal: Prelude to the Seven Trumpets; Revelation
He opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.
2 And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and to them were given seven
trumpets. 3 Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the
altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of
all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. 4 And the
smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from
the angel’s hand. 5 Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the
altar, and threw it to the earth. And there were noises, thunderings,
lightnings, and an earthquake.
6 So the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.”

This set of judgments (Trumpets) will be so catastrophic that heaven will be silent
in anticipation.

The Seven Trumpet Judgments Revelation 8:6
the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them.

1.      Hail, Fire and Blood; Revelation 8:7  The
first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood,
and it was hurled down upon the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a
third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.”

One third of the vegetation of the earth is burned up.

2.     Burning Mountain; Revelation 8:8-9a  The
second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all
ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, 9a third
of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were

This could be a nuclear blast or a giant asteroid or meteor, in any case it will
destroy one third of the aquatic life.

3.     Star Wormwood; Revelation 8:10  The
third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell
from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water— 11 the name
of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people
died from the waters that had become bitter.”

Wormwood, a poisonous herb or drug that will pollute one third of the fresh
water supply.

4.     Sun
Struck; Revelation 8:12 
fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of
the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them turned dark. A third
of the day was without light, and also a third of the night.”

The world will experience one third increase of darkness; this will have an affect
on the production of food.

5.      Plague of the Locusts; Revelation 9:1-11  The
fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky
to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss. 2 When he
opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The
sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss. 3 And out of the smoke
locusts came down upon the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of
the earth. 4 They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or
tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads.
5 They were not given power to kill them, but only to torture them for five
months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion
when it strikes a man. 6 During those days men will seek death, but will not
find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them. 7 The locusts looked
like horses prepared for battle. On their heads they wore something like crowns
of gold, and their faces resembled human faces. 8 Their hair was like women’s
hair, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth. 9 They had breastplates like
breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the thundering of
many horses and chariots rushing into battle. 10 They had tails and stings like
scorpions, and in their tails they had power to torment people for five months.
11 They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is
Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon.”

Those that have received the “seal of God” (probably the 144,000 witnesses and
those saved during the tribulation) will be spared.  These poisonous locusts
like creatures sting like a scorpion and are allowed to sting and torment for 5
months, however they can not kill. Those who are harmed by these creatures may
wish they were dead.

Revelation 9:12 The first woe is past; two other woes are yet to come.

of the Horsemen; Revelation 9:13-21  
sixth angel sounded his trumpet, and I heard a voice coming from the horns of
the golden altar that is before God. 14 It said to the sixth angel who had the
trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.”
15 And the four angels who had been kept ready for this very hour and day and
month and year were released to kill a third of mankind. 1 6The number of the
mounted troops was two hundred million. I heard their number.  17 The horses and
riders I saw in my vision looked like this: Their breastplates were fiery red,
dark blue, and yellow as sulfur. The heads of the horses resembled the heads of
lions, and out of their mouths came fire, smoke and sulfur. 18 A third of
mankind was killed by the three plagues of fire, smoke and sulfur that came out
of their mouths. 19 The power of the horses was in their mouths and in their
tails; for their tails were like snakes, having heads with which they inflict
injury. 20 The rest of mankind that were not killed by these plagues still did
not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and
idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood—idols that cannot see or hear or
walk. 21 Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts, their sexual
immorality or their thefts.”

Now we see an huge army of two hundred million riding on horses. They are released
to seek and kill mankind.  It appears that this is for the Antichrist and his
followers and not the believers.  These fearful creatures are so terrifying that
many will die of fright.

Rules – The Kingdom Proclaimed; Revelation 11:15-19  
seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which
said: “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his
Christ, and he will reign for ever and ever.” 16 And the twenty-four elders, who
were seated on their thrones before God, fell on their faces and worshiped God,
17 saying: “We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, the One who is and who
was, because you have taken your great power and have begun to reign. 18 The
nations were angry; and your wrath has come. The time has come for judging the
dead, and for rewarding your servants the prophets and your saints and those who
reverence your name, both small and great— and for destroying those who destroy
the earth.” 19 Then God’s temple in heaven was opened, and within his temple was
seen the ark of his covenant. And there came flashes of lightning, rumblings,
peals of thunder, an earthquake and a great hailstorm.”

Two Witnesses are killed and the Antichrist defiles the Temple.

The Second Half of the Tribulation begins

The Seven Bowl Judgments; Revelation 15 Seven Angels with Seven Plagues

“I saw in heaven another great and marvelous sign: seven angels with the seven
last plagues—last, because with them God’s wrath is completed. 2 And I saw what
looked like a sea of glass mixed with fire and, standing beside the sea, those
who had been victorious over the beast and his image and over the number of his
name. They held harps given them by God  3 and sang the song of Moses the
servant of God and the song of the Lamb: “Great and marvelous are your deeds,
Lord God Almighty. Just and true are your ways, King of the ages. 4 Who will
not fear you, O Lord, and bring glory to your name? For you alone are holy. All
nations will come and worship before you,  for your righteous acts have been
revealed.”  5 After this I looked and in heaven the temple, that is, the
tabernacle of the Testimony, was opened. 6 Out of the temple came the seven
angels with the seven plagues. They were dressed in clean, shining linen and
wore golden sashes around their chests. 7 Then one of the four living creatures
gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls filled with the wrath of God, who
lives for ever and ever. 8And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of
God and from his power, and no one could enter the temple until the seven
plagues of the seven angels were completed.”

Revelation 16:1
I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, “Go, pour
out the seven bowls of God’s wrath on the earth.”

This unveils the seven final judgments and is the most severe of the Great
Tribulation. The bowls are literal plagues or catastrophes that will occur on

1.      First Bowl: Loathsome Sores; Revelation 16:2 –” So
the first went and poured out his bowl upon the earth, and a foul and loathsome
sore came upon the men who had the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his

The sores are similar to the plagues in Egypt.  Those who have not received the mark
of the Beast will be spared.

2.     Second Bowl: The Sea Turns to Blood; Revelation 16:3 –The
second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that
of a dead man, and every living thing in the sea died.”

This will kill all the sea creatures.

3.     Third Bowl: The Waters Turn to Blood; Revelation 16: 4-7 – The
third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they
became blood. 5 Then I heard the angel in charge of the waters say:  “You are
just in these judgments, you who are and who were, the Holy One, because you
have so judged; 6 for they have shed the blood of your saints and prophets, and
you have given them blood to drink as they deserve.” 7 And I heard the altar
respond: “Yes, Lord God Almighty, true and just are your judgments.”

4.     Fourth Bowl: Men Are Scorched; Revelation 16: 8-9 – The
fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was given power to
scorch people with fire. 9 They were seared by the intense heat and they cursed
the name of God, who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent
and glorify him.”

This results from increased heat from the sun scorching people, yet they do not

5.      Fifth Bowl: Darkness and Pain; Revelation 16: 10-11
The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his
kingdom was plunged into darkness. Men gnawed their tongues in agony 11 and
cursed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, but they
refused to repent of what they had done.”

This plague will only affect the capitals of the world at that time; there will be
untold suffering for the followers of the Antichrist.

 6.     Sixth Bowl: Euphrates Dried Up; Revelation 16:12-16 – The
sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was
dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East. 13 Then I saw three
evil spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon,
out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 They
are spirits of demons performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings
of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God

7.      Seventh Bowl: The Earth Utterly Shaken; Revelation 16:17-21 – The
seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a
loud voice from the throne, saying, “It is done!” 18 Then there came flashes of
lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake
like it has ever occurred since man has been on earth, so tremendous was the
quake. 19 The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations
collapsed. God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the
wine of the fury of his wrath. 20 Every island fled away and the mountains could
not be found. 21 From the sky huge hailstones of about a hundred pounds each
fell upon men. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the
plague was so terrible.”

All the mountains and islands will be leveled.  The earthquakes will flatten the
entire surface of the earth.

Return of Christ, The Tribulation is almost over, now what?

1.      Marriage of the Lamb; Revelation 19: 7-10  7
Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has
come, and His wife has made herself ready.” 8 And to her it was granted to be
arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous
acts of the saints. 9 Then he said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are
called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!’” And he said to me, “These are the
true sayings of God.” 10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to
me, “See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren
who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the
spirit of prophecy.”

2.     Return of Christ with His Church and His Angels; Revelation 19: 11-16 – Christ
on a White Horse  
I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called
Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. 12 His eyes
were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name
written that no one knew except Himself. 13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in
blood, and His name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies in heaven,
clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. 15 Now out
of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And
He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of
the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16 And He has on His robe and on His
thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

3.     Battle of Armageddon; Revelation 16:16  And
they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon

Revelation 19:17-21
 “Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, “Come and gather together for the
supper of the great God, 18 that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of
captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on
them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great.”
19 And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered
together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army.”

4.     Antichrist and False Prophet Cast into the Lake of Fire; Revelation 19:20-21 “Then
the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his
presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and
those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire
burning with brimstone. 21 And the rest were killed with the sword which
proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were
filled with their flesh.”

End of the Tribulation and the Beginning of Christ’s Millennial Reign

1.      Satan Bound; Revelation 20:1-3 “Then
I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and
a great chain in his hand. 2 He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old,
who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; 3 and he cast
him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he
should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But
after these things he must be released for a little while.”

2.     Israel Rules the Nations; Revelation 20:4-6  And
I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I
saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for
the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not
received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and
reigned with Christ for a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead did not
live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first
resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection.
Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of
Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.”

Isaiah 65:23- 25
 “They shall not labor in vain, Nor bring forth children for trouble; For they shall be
the descendants of the blessed of the LORD, And their offspring with them. 24 “
It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer; And while they are
still speaking, I will hear. 25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, The
lion shall eat straw like the ox, And dust shall be the serpent’s food.  They
shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain,”   Says the LORD.”

3.     Satan Loosed for a While; Revelation 20:7-10 – Satanic Rebellion Crushed Now
when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison 8
and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the
earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the
sand of the sea. 9 They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the
camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of
heaven and devoured them. 10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the
lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they
will be tormented day and night forever and ever.”

The Great White Throne of Judgment; Revelation 20:11-15 
I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and
the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the
dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another
book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according
to their works, by the things which were written in the books. 13 The sea gave
up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were
in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. 14 Then Death
and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And
anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.”

This is God’s Great White Throne of Judgment at the end of the millennium
it is the judgment of unbelievers (those that did not call on the Name of Jesus)
in which they are judged according to their works and sentenced to everlasting
punishment in the lake of fire.  After this judgment there is no second chance; this
judgment is Final!

All Things will be made new; New Heaven,  New Earth and New Jerusalem;
Revelation 21:1-2  
I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had
passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New
Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for
her husband

Farewell message and a warning

Revelation 22:18-19
 “For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If
anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in
this book; 19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this
prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy
city, and from the things which are written in this book.”

“I Am Coming Quickly
Revelation 22:20-21  “He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am
coming quickly.”  Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!   21 The grace of our Lord
Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.”

We are in the End-Times and time is short. 

The judgments during the tribulation are for those that have not accepted Jesus as
their Savior, and God is offering ALL a Final chance.  The Good News there is
a chance
 for Salvation during the tribulations as long as you do not receive
the mark of the beast and that you do accept Jesus Christ as your Savior before
his “Glorious Appearing”.  God loves you and all He wants you to do is come to
Him and believe in His Son, Jesus.

There is never a better time to ask Jesus to come into your heart; here is a
link to a 
sinner’s prayer

we are in the last days and the time is short before Jesus calls His Church
(Bride) home
. Only those that know Jesus as their Savior will be raptured; “in
a twinkling of an eye”.

Be Blessed and Trust in Jesus!
