Q: #173. Can you give me an end times timeline from a pretribulational, premillennial point of view.

By: Steve Shirley

    A: As I have stated on this site a number of times, I am far from an expert on end times events. For that reason, I do not have a lot of studies dealing with them. That being said, I will try an lay out a timeline from my understanding of what most pretribulational, premillennialists believe.

Rapture of all believers on Earth before the 7 year Tribulation begins: (1 Th 4:13-18)(1 Cor 15:51-53)

Judgment Seat of Christ (rewards for all believers): (2 Cor 5:10-11)(Rom 14:10-12)(1 Cor 3:10-15)(1 Cor 9:24-27)

Battle Of Gog and Magog (an attack on Israel from what many believe to be Russia, or possibly China, along with a coalition of other nations): (Ezek 38-39)

The Antichrist appears and signs a 7 year peace treaty with Israel: (Dan 9:27)

144,000 Jews are sealed by God to witness to the world: (Rev 7:3-8)

God sends two (special) witnesses to spread the Gospel to the world: (Rev 11:1-13) (They will witness for 1260 days or 3 and a half years [Rev 11:3], after which they they will be murdered [Rev 11:7]. After 3 and a half days, they will arise from the dead and ascend up into heaven  [Rev 11:11-12].)
*** These two witnesses are believed by most to be Elijah and either Moses or Enoch.)

The Antichrist breaks the peace treaty with Israel after 3 and a half years, and makes war against them: (Dan 9:27)(Dan 12:11)(Lk 21:20)

The Abomination of Desolation (The Antichrist will call himself God and set himself up in the Temple to be worshipped): (Dan 9:27)(Rev 13)(Mt 24:15)(2 Th 2:3-4)(Mk 13:14)
*** The Antichrist will be given power to rule for 3 and a half years (Rev 13:5).

Jews flee: (Rev 12:6)(Mt 24:15-21)(Lk 21:20-24)(Mk 13:14-19)
*** The Jews will flee for 3 and a half years (the same amount of time the Antichrist is in power), but God will take care of them (Rev 12:6).

Trumpet Judgments begin: (Rev 8-9)

Bowl Judgments: (Rev 15-16)

Armageddon (translation meaning Mt. Megiddo)(The Antichrist will launch his final attack on Israel at Mt. Megiddo): (Rev 16:13-16)

2nd Coming of Christ: (Rev 19:11-16)(Zech 14:3-11)(Mt 24:27-31)(Mk 13:24-27)(Lk 21:25-28)

The Antichrist, his armies, and the False Prophet are all thrown into the Lake of Fire (Rev 19:17-21)

Satan is bound by Christ and thrown into the bottomless pit (See: Rev 9:1-2) for 1000 years: (Rev 20:1-3)

Marriage Supper of the Lamb: (Rev 19:7)

1000 year Millennial reign of Christ: (Rev 20:4-6)(Zech 14:6-9)

Satan is released at the end of the 1000 years, makes war against God again, and is defeated: (Rev 20:7-9)

Satan is cast into the Lake of Fire: (Rev 20:10)

Great White Throne Judgment (unbelievers from all of history judged and cast into the Lake of Fire): (Rev 20:11-15)

New Heaven and New Earth: (Rev 21-22:5)
