Last Days #3: The Final Timeline: What Happens Next? – Key Points
The question “when is the rapture going to happen” is brought up often and the answer is simple, we don’t know. There are no signs of the rapture, but we do know that the Bible says the Lord Himself will descend from heaven and the church will be caught up or taken.
Though there are no signs of the rapture, there are signs of the second coming of Jesus Christ to the earth. 2 Thessalonians 2:1-10 lists different events that must happen before the second coming of Christ including the temple being rebuilt and the abomination of desolation, which when the antichrist will sit on the throne in the temple as if he’s Christ, deceiving many. We can thank God that we, the church, are the ones who are stopping the antichrist from being revealed according to 2 Thess. 2:7 “For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.”
After the rapture, that can happen at any moment, there are signs of things that must happen before the second coming of the Lord. In the rebuilt temple, Israel will make daily sacrifices. Once they are taken away, there will be 1,290 days until the abomination of desolation. God will give two witnesses power and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, preach God’s message, and finish their testimony. The antichrist will sit on the throne in the temple, exalting himself as God.There will be “a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time” (Dan. 12:1) that lasts 3 and a half years. After the abomination of desolation, some of Israel will flee into the wilderness during the great tribulation.
Revelation 13:16-18 speaks of the mark of the beast that will be required to buy or sell after the Great Tribulation. The Lord will return the earth to reign and defeat those who war against him in the battle of Armageddon (The saints will come back with him – those who are raptured). The eagles/fowls will gather and eat of the dead bodies from the battle of Armageddon.
The saints will live and reign with Christ for 1000 years during the Millennial Reign of Christ (Rev. 20:1-4). Satan will also be shut up (bound) in the bottomless pit (Rev. 20:2). After the 1000 years, Satan will be loosed from prison for a little season. He will try to deceive and gather the nations to battle. They will be devoured, and he will be cast into the lake of fire and tormented for ever and ever. After Satan is devoured, there will be The Great White Throne of Judgment where the dead will be judged out of the books and the book of life according to their works (Rev. 20:12). The ones whose names are written in the book of life are not lost! At the end of the timeline there is the New Heaven and New Earth where we reign with Jesus throughout eternity. There’s so much to study about the FInal Timeline of the Last Days and we are blessed to equip ourselves with understanding so that we are without excuse when Jesus returns.
