Daniel, chapter 2, verses 1 – 47, approximately 603 BC, says …1And in the second year of the reign of

Nebuchadnezzar (king of Babylon) Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from him …

26The king answered and said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, Art thou able to make known unto me the dream which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof? 27Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king; 28But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days 31Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. …  32This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,  33His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. 34Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.   …  36This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king. 37Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory. 38And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head (the Babylonian empire). 39And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee (the Persian-Median Empire, conquered the Babylonian Empire as foretold in Daniel 8: 1-7, 20), and another third kingdom of brass (the Grecian empire, conquered the Persian-Median Empire as foretold in Daniel 8; 1-21-26), which shall bear rule over all the earth.

40And the fourth kingdom (the Roman Empire, conquered the Grecian Empire) shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. 41And whereas thou sawest

the feet and (ten) toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. 42And as the (ten) toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken43And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

[The E. U. (European Union) is the beginning of the 'feet of iron mixed with clay' & culminates in the World Dictator … the Beast … the Anti Christ.]

 44And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.  45Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.  …

47The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.[1]




The final global order of events, as given by Jesus ... that is now upon us


In Mathew, Chapter 24: 1-51:


1And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. 2And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you,

There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

The temple was destroyed to the ground 40 yrs later in 70 AD by the Roman soldiers of Titus even though he told them not to touch the temple when they took Jerusalem. 


3And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and

what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?  


< 2) The 'BEGGINING of SORROWS'… called the time of 'Birth Pangs' or '4 Horses': 

4And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

5For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled:

for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and

there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

8All these are the beginning of sorrows (referred to as the time of BIRTH PANGES).


This is the time we are living in & parallels the time of the 4 horses of the 1st 4 Seals in Revelation chapter 6 as follows …

1And I saw when the Lamb (Jesus) opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. 2And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.


3And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. 4And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.


5And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a

black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. 6And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou

hurt not the oil and the wine.


7And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. 8And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell (the grave) followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.  [2]

9Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

There are & will be many more deceivers but there is one primary deceiver portrayed on the white horse … revealed in the Wrath section on Babylon Destroyed.

There are exponentially more wars & regional conflicts going on in this generation than ever in history.

The last few decades has seen a hundredfold increase in environmental calamitiesthe economy is a house of cardsproviding food is getting & will get magnanimously more difficult for the lower classes but the delicacies of the rich shall be preserved.

Persecution of God’s people & others, even genocide, is on the rise globally & will enormously increase, though kept obscure by the media & downplayed politically.   

10And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

13But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

14And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations (Technology is greatly hastening this.); and then shall the end come. Next

Prophesied in Daniel chapter 7 …

1In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniel had a dream and visions of his head upon his bed: then he wrote the dream, and told the sum of the matters. … 3And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another. … 7After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. …

23Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. 24And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another (king) shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. 25And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time (3 ½ yrs). 26But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. … 11 … I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame. [3]

Confirmed in Revelation chapters 13 & 17 …

Chapter 13 …

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.  2And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. 5And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months (3 ½ yrs).   6And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 7And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.[4] 

Chapter 17 …

12And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. 13These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

14These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.[5]

Rev. 13 … 11And I beheld another beast (The False Prophet ) coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, 14And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.[6]

15And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that

as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.  16And he causeth all, both small and great,  rich and poor,  free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:  17And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six (666). [7]

Rev. 14 … 9And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 11And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. 12Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

13And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.[8]

15When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation (the Beast, called Antichrist & ultimately his image), spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) 16Then let them (God’s people) which be in Judaea (& everywhere) flee into the mountains (take refuge as God’s Spirit will reveal): 17Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: 18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. 19And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 20But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

Daniel 9 …  24Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city (Jerusalem), to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy (until Christ’s eternal kingdom) 27And he (Antichrist) shall confirm the covenant with man for one week: and

in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation (annihilation [9]) ( by Jesus at Armageddon), and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate … Daniel 12 … 11And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the  abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days (3 ½ yrs). [10]

Daniel 11 … 32And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he (Antichrist) corrupt by flatteries: but

the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits33And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days 36And

the king (Antichrist) shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation (of Christ upon Antichrist at Armageddon) be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. [11]

In the 1st half of the 70th & last prophetic week (considered likely to be 3 ½ of 7 yrs), the Antichrist (son of perdition) will be accepted by the Jews as their Messiah & "stand in the holy place" (the temple), while Christian rejection of him & his mark shall lead to their persecution.

In the middle of the prophetic week the Christians are raptured, the temple daily sacrifice is taken away, the abomination that maketh desolate set up (likely the beast’s image) & there is a falling out between the Antichrist & the Jews resulting in the 2nd half of the prophetic week the Antichrist turning on the Jews, till Armageddon. From the time Christ is seen rapturing the Christians, onward, many Jews realize Jesus Christ is Messiah & 144,000 become His representatives. 



21For then (subsequent to the above) shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

22And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. 

Rev. 6 … 9And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: 10And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? 11And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled

(in the Great Tribulation).[12] 

Refusing the Mark incurs the 'worst' persecution - tribulation  of God’s people that has ever been or ever shall be… often confused with the Wrath of God … the plagues of the trumpets & vials in Revelation called the Wrath of the Lamb-(Jesus) in Revelation chapter 6 verses 16 & 17.).

The word tribulation(s) 21 of 22 times in the New Testament refers to persecution / troubles / afflictions (trials) of Christians. Christians are not appointed to (God’s) ‘wrath’ but are appointed to ‘tribulation’ of & from the world.

The Great Tribulation of Christians & others is the consequential wrath of the world for obeying God by opposing the Antichrist & his mark … resulting in the Wrath of God that will tribulate the world for what they did to His people.


Strong’s Concordance Greek Lexicon definition of 'tribulation' …

2347 thlipsis { thlip’-sis}

AV - tribulation 21, affliction 17, trouble 3, anguish 1, persecution 1, burdened 1, to be afflicted + 1519 1; 45

1) a pressing, pressing together, pressure

2) metaph. oppression, affliction, tribulation, distress, straits[13]


Many will take the Mark under duress thinking God will excuse them if they are wrong because they permitted themselves to be persuaded that they would not endure this test because Jesus would take them away in the rapture during  their time of  relative comfort before the Antichrist & his Mark,  as a reward for  their perpetual compromises of his word … that they will be excused for not searching his word because there will be no time when they had had plenty of time … "I do not have to understand the book of Revelation written for my generation, I just have to be a good compromising, pew sitting, tithe giving,  pseudo-Christian with lots of knowledge mixed with good intentions, some good works, a measure of self-indulgent faith & acceptance of my church, pastor & piers"

"Lord, I only took the Mark because I did not think it was the Mark because my church believed, I was taught, I read … the Mark was after the rapture …isn’t the Mark just another sin … don’t we go to heaven no matter what after we believe in Jesus & say the sinners’ prayer & experience that moment of bliss?... I did not know salvation was free but the walk was to cost me everything … I should have considered more comprehensively that I was bought with a price & that my life was no longer mine to  live my own way even though I called myself a Christian ... your servant." 

Many of the wolves, many in sheep’s clothing will have done their jobs well & many shall finally be exposed …after the damage is done … some may even remorse … even repent in consuming grief … but prevention of this new magnanimous global deception & holocaust will be too late. Many Christian shepherds & hirelings with misguided good intentions shall weep bitterly at the desecration of their flocks & the realization that they unwittingly helped the wolves … as they recall the times God’s Spirit tried to get their attention or sent them unassuming messengers who also could not get through their prejudices, busyness, self-importance & peer pressure cognoscence …who may still be saved, yet so as by fire,” 1 Corinthians 3:15.     

Each dispensation since creation has ended with such immense worldly evil, producing with Satan’s help, global atrocities of which God (if He exists) gets blamed for what these active & passive rebels themselves invoked, culminating in a persecutiontribulation of God’s people as his 'supposed' representatives, who are inevitably not entirely innocent because of self-fulfilling conflicting priorities with God’s agenda to prevent things from getting out of control in the 1st place, if they would whole heartily obey His instructions given at the beginning of & throughout each dispensation.  

We are near the end of this dispensation …should anything be different. However, as in times past, God will provide for many who know how to listen to & obey His Spirit, an earthly way of escape to refuge or supernatural protection …leaving exposed to persecutiontribulation … a few willing martyrs & many 'dull of hearing'  self-willed, self-interested, slothful, disobedient & pseudo Christians who will say, "why God?" … as they are provided one final opportunity to stand up for the ways of God, as they should have done previously,  endeavoring to prevent the conflict they now find themselves in.  


<4-1   * God Will Provide Refuge in the Wilderness: 

Revelation 12 … 1And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:  2And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. 3And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.  4And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.  

5And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. 6And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days  (3 ½ yrs)

7And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

12Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

13And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

14And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time (3 ½ yrs), from the face of the serpent. 15And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. 16And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. 17And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. [14] Unfortunately, many will not heed God’s promptings nor listen to His messengers because of previous false prophesies … Satan is planning ahead too. God will provide refuge in the wilderness for obedient Christians the 1st half & obedient Jews the 2nd half of the 70th prophetic week, mentioned previously in Daniel 9:24. 

Now let us ask God to help us finally read this next passage in the simplicity of the Gospel it was originally written & intended … if there is a comprehensive clash with what event verse 1 describes, just ask a number of avid Bible reading babes in Christ, who have not been exposed to ‘any’ End Times teachings, including this one … 

2 Thessalonians 2 … 1Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (in the clouds), and by our gathering together unto him (in the sky), ( this is THE RAPTURE, detailed in Math. 24:30; Rev. 1: 7, 6:12-17; 1 Thess. 4; 15-17; 1Cor. 15: 51-52 printed in the next section) 2That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first ( from true Godliness: It’s a happening, NOW !!! ), and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition(Antichrist, SOON!);4Who pposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. 5Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.  7For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth (Middle English for Greek …"withholds or obstructs")

will let ("withholds or obstructs"), until he be taken out of the way. 8And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

13But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: [15]


< 5) The "FIRST RESURRECTION" known as The "RAPTURE"

                                                                                        Jesus comes in the Clouds for His people: 

23Then (in the last days; the time approximating & during the above TRIBULATION) if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 25Behold, I have told you before. 26Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. 

 27For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be (in the clouds).

28For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together (as assuredly you see the eagles where the carcass of their prey is; so certainly shall you see these signs and their events). Thus …  

 29Immediately 'after' the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man (Jesus) coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. … Parallel passages … 

Revelation 1 … 7Behold, he (Jesus) cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him (not a secret Rapture as many assume), and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. 8I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. [16]

Revelation 6 … 12And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; 13And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.  14And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? [17]  

The Wrath of the Lamb of God begins in the next & final 7th Seal … so, the Tribulation, then the Rapture, then the Wrath.

1 Thessalonians 4 … 13But 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. 14For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 15For 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.  16For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump (military oration as loud as a trumpet) of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17Then 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. 18Wherefore comfort one another with these words. [18]      

Acts 1: 1 … of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, 2Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen: 3To whom also he shewed himself ‘alive’ after his passion (after his death & resurrection) by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God: 4And, being assembled together with them, commanded them … ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.  9And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. 10And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up,  behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; 11Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. [19]

1 Corinthians 15 … 1Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.   3For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 5And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: 6After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. 7After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. 8And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.  9For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. 10But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me. 11Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed.

12Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: 14And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. 15Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not. 16For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised: 17And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. 18Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished. 19If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

20But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. 21For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. 22For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 23But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming. … 51Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump(military oration as loud as a trumpet): for the trumpet shall sound (with the oration), and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 55O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?  56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 57But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

58Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. [20]

Revelation 7 … (still the 6 th Seal) 9After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne(no longer under the alter as in the 5th Seal, Revelation 6: 9), and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; 10And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. 11And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, 12Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.

13And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? 14And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they (of all generations) which came out of great tribulation (including the greatest tribulation), and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. 16They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. 17For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. [21]   (All true & faithful Christians of all nations, dead & alive, are raptured 'after' the Great Tribulation-Persecution, perfected & receive  'glorified bodies,' together, including the souls under the alter & enter the Thrown Room of God with thanksgiving, praise & honor.

The Time of the Gentile representation of God has concluded.) 

Hebrews 11 … 35Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection: 36And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: 37They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; 38(Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. 39And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: 40God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect (until the Rapture, receiving their glorified bodies with us).  [22]


<5-1   * The Marriage Feast of The Lamb

Revelation 19 … 5And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great. 6And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. 7Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 8And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.  9And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. 10And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. [23]

32Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.  34Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 35Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. 36But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 37But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 40Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.  

1 Thessalonians 5 … 1But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 3For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 4But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. 5Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

6Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. 7For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. 8But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. 9For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation (& tribulation-persecution) by our Lord Jesus Christ, 10Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. …

16Rejoice evermore. 17Pray without ceasing. 18In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 19Quench not the Spirit. 20Despise not prophesyings. 21Prove all things;  hold fast that which is good. 22Abstain from all appearance of evil.

27I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren.  28The grace of our Lord  Jesus Christ be with you. Amen. [24]

42Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 43But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. 45Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 46Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 47Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. 48But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; 49And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; 50The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, 51And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites (unbelievers, Luke 12:46): there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.  [25]

This is the end of Mathew chapter 24 ...

THE RAPTURE (1st Resurrection) HAS OCCURRED.





The Israelites (Jews) realize Jesus was & is their Messiah


Are going to be God's Witnesses again ...

<5-2   * The Sealing of 144,000 Jews to be God’s Servants 'after' the Rapture:  

Revelation 7 … 1And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. 2And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, 3Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. 4And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand (144,000) of all the tribes of the children of Israel. (12,000 of each of 12 tribes) [26]   

Revelation 9 … 4And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. 5And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. 6And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.[27]


Jesus Did Not Specifically Describe The Wrath of God,

That Christians Are Not Subject To.

Revelation Does ...

< 6) The WRATH of GOD the Plagues of the 7 Trumpets & 7 Vials in Revelation: 

Recall, at the end of chapter 6, during the Rapture, in the sixth seal, hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand. 

Now … Revelation 8 … 1And when he had opened the ( final) seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. 2And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. 3And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.  4And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand. 5And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.  6And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. 7 The first angel sounded … [28]

Chapter 15 … 1And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. 2And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. 3And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.  4Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.

5And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened: 6And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles. 7And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever. 8And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.

Chapter 16 … 1And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. 2And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth [29]


<6-1   * The 2 Witnesses Prophesy

1And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.

 2But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and

the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months (3 ½ yrs). 

3And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days (3 ½ yrs), clothed in sackcloth.  4These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. 5And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. 6These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. 7And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. 8And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. 9And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. 10And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. 11And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. 12And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. 13And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. 


<6-2   * Babylon Destroyed

Revelation 16 … 19 … and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the  fierceness of his wrath. [30] 

Revelation 17 …1And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: 2With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. 3So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:  5And upon her forehead was a name written,

MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.  6And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.


7And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. 8The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. 9And here is the mind which hath wisdom.

The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. 10And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. 11And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. 12And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. 13These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.


14These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. 15And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. 16And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. 17For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. 18And

the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth. [31] 


Verse 9 + verse 18 = Rome with its Vatican City sits on 7 hills, each hill having its own name … known as the city of 7 hills.

The Greek word 'mountain' in verse 9 is synonymous with ‘hill’.  


Rome reigned with its military when the Apostle John was told this in the 90’s AD & still reigns, incognito from the spiritual-political nation, the Vatican (it is not part of Italy) by its Black Pope via the Jesuits through a number of rich families, secret societies, governmental & corporate infiltrators & the Ecumenical movement. The White Pope (called Holly Father, the name of God … that’s blasphemy) is a figurehead … the public ambassador presenting the desired image. Many priests, nuns & monks are misguided well intentioned pawns used to manipulate the masses.

Many Catholics are true Christians, unaware of the real Vatican agenda but most are unsaved ritualists, following tradition.  

Ironically, Satan through the Vatican by twisting God’s own Word is manipulating the peoples of the nations & will eventually achieve his ultimate desire of ruling the world … for a brief time … before his demise. 

It is difficult to explain to people who get emotional about things, that if they are honest, they don’t know much about … just because, "You can’t be right … you’re just another wacky conspiracy theorist … of course, with no contrary evidence themselves … because it can’t be!"BUT IT IS !!!                              

The secrecy of the internal Vatican operations is in itself a clear sign … John 18 … 20Jesus answered … in secret have I said nothing.[32]

* answer to Preterism

Revelation 18 … 1And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. 2And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. 3For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.  4And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people (true Christians in the Roman Catholic Church), that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 5For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 6Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. 7How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. 8Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

9And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her … 11And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: 12The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,  13And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men14And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all While the USA appears the most powerful nation on earth, being $ trillions in debt the Vatican being worth $ trillions (beyond calculation) is actually the wealthiest most powerful nation on the planet, controlling the good & evil economies & takes more than she gives from the poor & wealthy alike

 20Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her (the Roman Empire killed Jesus, the Apostles Paul & Peter & countless Christians under the old military order …). 21And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. 22And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; 23And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. 24And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth [… the Roman Empire killed millions more scripture believing & reading Christians as witches & heretics under the Roman Catholic Church order during the Dark Ages & Protestant Reformation (not a revival but a reforming). The Jesuits have killed many more by inciting wars & national internal & external conflicts … not to mention the occasional espionage]. [33]

Revelation 19 … 1And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: 2For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand. 3And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever. 4And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia. [34]


< 7) ARMAGEDDON Jesus comes with His army to destroy the armies gathered to conquer Israelthe Antichrist and False Prophet are cast into the lake of fireSatan is bound for 1,000 years:  

Revelation 9 … 13And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. 15And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.  16And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand (200,000,000 … China now has that capability): and I heard the number of them. 17And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. 18By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. 19For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt. 20And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: 21Neither repented they of their murders, nor of        their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts. [35]

Revelation 16 … 12And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. 13And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. 15Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. 16And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. [36]

Revelation 11 … 15And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying,         

The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. 16And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, 17Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. 18And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.  19And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were        lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail. [37]

Revelation 16 … 17And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. 18And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. 19And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: [and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath (just prior to Armageddon, covered at the end of the last section, 'The Wrath of God')]. 20And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

Revelation 19 … 11And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he (Jesus) that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 14And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean (those that were raptured). 15And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. 17And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; 18That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

19And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army (Armageddon).

20And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

21And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh. [39]

Revelation 20 … 1And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 3And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. [40]


< 8) The MILLENNIAL REIGN of CHRIST … on earth with those

                                                              Jesus 'RAPTURED' ... as His kings and priests:

Daniel 2 … 34Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands (Jesus), which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.  35Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth  

44And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.   45Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure. [41] 

Revelation 20 … 4And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.  

5 … This is the first resurrection (those Raptured). 6Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

5But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished ...

7And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 8And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together   to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 9And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

10And 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 (devoid of God’s presence … perpetual self-torment,  2 Thess. 1: 9). [42]



Revelation 20 … 11And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them (The earth has finally been destroyed recreated in Revelation 21: 1).

12And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is

the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.  14And death and hell (the grave) were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

15And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. [43]



Revelation 21 … 1And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 2And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

4And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. 5And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 6And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. 7He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. 

8But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. [44]



2 Peter 3 … 1This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: 2That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:  

3Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 5For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:  6Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 7But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.  

8But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day (from Creation to the New Earth is as 1 week with the Lord).

9The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward (permitting time), not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.  

10But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

11Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 12Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?   

13Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. 14Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. 15And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; 16As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest (twist), as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

17Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. 18But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen. [45] 

Numerous Christian leaders & sheep will 'wake up' to the realization that they helped promote the 'wolves agendas' by unwittingly succumbing to the unassuming persuasion of 'Ecumenical ideologies' even if they resisted ecumenism. "Unity without compromise," sounds good but it is only a deceptive spiritual political slogan to an 'underlying driving force' of today’s ecumenical movement that has an ulterior motive that will not become clear to most until the tribulation-persecution proximity … when the damage will be imminent !!!   


Final Note: 

revealed the foundation of the above. I was not the 1st or last to be shown the chronology but I am 'not aware' of anyone being shown before 1948 when Israel was reinstated … starting the clock of the FINAL GENERATION of the LAST DAYS, of this dispensation. I was not inspired to put this into print until a dream 4/14/5, after 19 yrs & 1 month of further insights & refining. God’s hand has been powerfully in this article.  

 Most who understand bible prophesy know that God often uses symbols & parables because prophesies frequently have 1 primary fulfillment, with multiple secondary fulfillments, thereby speaI became paraplegic 6/28/85 …born again 10/8/85 3/86, God lead me into a fast & king to all people in every generation individually & collectively … providing much insight to many who seek Him in diverse circumstances … but with Satan’s help a 'stumbling stone' to many, for potentially multiple spiritually flawed reasons.  

It could be that Chronologies presented before 1948, even though well intended, were flawed because perhaps it was not God’s time … perhaps it was yet not the season previous generations needed it not, though curious.    But it is needed … NOW !!!



Mathew 24: 15, 21, 29-31, & parallel passages are 3 pivotal similes critical to comprehending

END TIMES chronology … being dually fulfilled in 'similar' events in the 70 th prophetic week  


  1.   Verse 15:

     … Antichrist stands in the temple early in the week.                                                  

     … his image is set up in the temple in the middle of the week.

  1.  Verse 21:

     Antichrist persecutes Christians & others resisting him & his mark the 1st ½ of the week.                                                                                                                            

      Antichrist persecutes Jews the 2nd ½ of the week. 

  1.  Verses 29-31:

     … Jesus comes from heaven with angels in the clouds to rapture Christians in the mid week.                                                                                                                         

     … Jesus comes from heaven with the previously raptured Christians as His armies to save Israel at the end of the week.

*** Hours, days, weeks, months, years, decades, centuries & millenniums presented, are interchangeably determined & revealed through revelation & circumstances by God to those who seek Him on His terms & to others He chooses by His eternal wisdom. The primary focus of this article is on chronology (sequential order of events), not the duration or exact times or dates of events. God will reveal seasons; general times & durations of events more clearly & instruct what to do as these immanent events draw even closer … but be careful of promotions of exact dates of Latter Days events!  

To those truly walking with God in His Prophetic Spirit He will reveal how & when to respond to these very near events … many will miss prophetic directives because of neglecting this spiritual priority at the expense of other spiritual priorities … 'failing' to achieve God’s Spiritual Balance. And of course, many will be duped of the Devil into being skeptical because of previous false prophesies construed by him. 

In 1918, after World War 1, God had Britain open up Palestine for the Jews to return to as He declared He would 2500 yrs before by His prophets …Jeremiah, Ezekiel & Daniel. If they would have obeyed there would have been no Holocaust …instead of why God?

I pray to the Lord Jesus for all to have ears to hear & eyes to see !!!


* Here is a YouTube video on the topic of ...

                         Post-Tribulation Pre-Wrath Rapture ...

                                                                                    titled, "After the Tribulation"


Here is the mind which hath wisdom ... 5 events in Revelation in reverse chronology  

1)     Armageddon

2)     proceeded by the 7th Seal commencing the 7 trumpets & 7 vials … the Wrath.

3)     proceeded by the 6th Sealthe Rapture, sealing of the 144,000 & the raptured saints before the throne (not under the alter) worshipping God.

4)     proceeded by the 5th Sealthe saints under the alter before the rapture & the declaration of  persecution (tribulation) before the Rapture & God’s wrath.

5)     proceeded by the 1st 4 Seals … 4 Horses Beginning of Sorrows (Birth Pangs).
