PAST EVENTS ALREADY FULFILLED

Jesus the Messiah is Born in Bethlehem (circa 6 B.C.).

The Finished Work of Christ on the Cross Accomplished (circa 30 A.D.).

The Destruction of the Temple predicted by Christ in Matthew 24:2 (70 A.D.).

Jewish Dispersion: Deuteronomy 28:15-29 , Ezekiel 36:2-8 , Zechariah 10:9.

The Church Age (Mystery form of the Kingdom, Matthew 13, Ephesians 2).

The seven churches in the Book of Revelation are representative of the Church Age. John is speaking of seven actual first century churches and of the churches throughout the Church age. There is a likeness between these churches and the periods of church history:

Ephesus (30-100 A.D.) Apostolic Age of the Church, Revelation 2:1.

Smyrna (100-313 A.D.) Roman Persecution of the Church, Revelation 2:8.

Pergamum (313-600 A.D.) Age of Constantine, Revelation 2:12.

Thyatira (600-1517 A.D.) Dark Ages, Revelation 2:18.

Sardis (1517-1648 A.D.) Reformation of the Church, Revelation 3:1.

Philadelphia (1648-1900 A.D.) "Great Awakening" Missionary Movement, Revelation 3:7.

Laodicea (1900-present day) Apostasy and Lukewarm Church, Revelation 3:14. 1

THE PRE-TRIBULATION EVENTS

Futurists are divided over whether or not Matthew 24:4-14 (Mark 13:4-13; Luke 21:8-19), the Olivet Discourse, has already been partially fulfilled.

And Jesus answered and said to them, "See to it that no one misleads you. For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will mislead many. And you will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs. Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations on account of My name. And at that time many will fall away and will deliver up one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise, and will mislead many. And because lawlessness is increased, most people's love will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end, he shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world for a witness to all the nations, and then the end shall come." (Matthew 24:4-14)

Are these verses describing general characteristics of the Church Age or are they only for the future seven-year Tribulation? We see these verses, as futuristic and referring to the events of the first half of the Tribulation. During the Church Age the general conditions given in 1 Timothy 4:1-3; 2 Timothy 3:1-9; 1 John 2:18; 4:1-3 remind us we are in the "last days." But during the Tribulation, the conditions of Matthew 24:4-14 become specific signs of the end of the age whereby the Jewish believers will be able to discern where they are in the 70th week and endure to the end of the Tribulation, being delivered by Messiah at His Second Advent (see Matthew 24:3).

[There is a distinction between "the last days" for Israel and the "last days" when it relates to the church. For the church, the "last days" began with the first advent of Christ but have special reference to the time of apostasy and decline at the end of this present church age. For Israel, the "last days" are the days of Israel's Tribulation followed by exaltation and blessing during the Millennial Kingdom.]

The Rebirth of Israel
The rebirth of Israel arose out of World Wars I and II. World War I produced the momentum for the growth of the Zionist movement and World War II produced the world sentiment needed to bring about the establishment of the Jewish state of Israel, in the ancient Biblical homeland.

Unbelievably, some Christians see the present State of Israel as having nothing to do with the fulfillment of Bible prophecy. These Christians may subscribe to replacement theology, which says that the Church has replaced Israel. In fact, the dominant view in Christianity has been that the Church is the New Israel, a continuation of the concept of Israel from the Old Testament. This view teaches that the Church is the replacement for Israel and that the many promises made to Israel in the Bible are fulfilled in the Christian Church, not in literal, biblical Israel. So, the prophecies in Scripture concerning the blessing and restoration of Israel to the Land of Promise are "spiritualized" into promises of God's blessing for the Church.

Others have an issue that bothers them in that the Jews have returned in unbelief with regard to the person of Christ and also since the majority of those Jews who have returned are not even Orthodox, religious Jews. So, according to them, Israel could not possibly fulfill the biblical prophecies dealing with the return of a regenerated nation, according to their present condition. What they fail to see is that the prophets spoke of a two part return. First, there was to be a regathering in unbelief in preparation for judgment, the Tribulation (Ezekiel 20:33-38; 22:17-22; Zephaniah 2:1-2). Then there would be a worldwide regathering in faith in preparation for blessing, the promised Messianic Kingdom (Isaiah 11:11- 12).

1948 marked an important date in Bible Prophecy. The restoration of the Jewish state is a fulfillment of those prophecies that spoke of a regathering in unbelief in preparation for judgment. This is another event leading up to the Tribulation and sets the stage for other Pre-Tribulation events.

Jewish Control of Jerusalem
The next Pre-Tribulation event is the Jewish control of Jerusalem. The fact that the Jewish state had to exist before the Tribulation does not necessarily require the Jewish control of Jerusalem. After the War of Independence in 1948 Israeli forces were in control of West Jerusalem, the newer Jewish section of the city. The Old City of Jerusalem, the biblical city, fell into the hands of Jordan and Jerusalem became a divided city until 1967. The Jewish control of Jerusalem was clearly fulfilled in 1967 with the Six Day War.

THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH
The Church, made up of all true believers since Pentecost, will one day be evacuated from this earth in an instant of time. Our Lord will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God. Those Believers in Christ who are dead shall be resurrected first, then we who are alive on earth will be translated from mortal to immortal. Together we will be caught up (Raptured) in the clouds, meeting the Lord in the air, to be with Him in Heaven forever (1 Corinthians 15:51-52; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). The Rapture is an imminent, pre-tribulational event, it can happen at any time and is not dependent upon the sequence of Pre-Tribulation events.

   The Judgment Seat of Christ
Believers who have been raptured into Heaven must stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ to receive crowns and rewards for deeds done while on earth. This will occur in Heaven after the Rapture and during the Tribulation Period on earth.

   The Marriage of The Lamb
The Marriage of the Lamb is when the Church is united with Christ in Heaven. It occurs after the Judgment seat of Christ. It is when Christ, the heavenly bridegroom, will forever be with His beloved Church. The Bride is the Church, made up of all Believers from Pentecost until the Rapture.

The Third Jewish Temple
Prophetically, the Old City of Jerusalem had to come under Jewish control. This can be seen from the prophecies dealing with the third Jewish Temple, also referred to as the Tribulation Temple. There are four passages of Scripture that describe a specific mid-Tribulation event regarding the Tribulation Temple. Each passage (Daniel 9:27; Matthew 24:15; 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4; and Revelation 11:1-2) speaks of the third Jewish Temple, namely the Tribulation Temple. And all four make the point that in the middle of the seven-year Tribulation the Antichrist will take control of the Temple and commit the abomination of desolation. These verses view the Jewish Temple as having been rebuilt, and they also presuppose Jewish control of the Temple mount, as well as the Old City of Jerusalem. The Temple will most likely be erected before the Tribulation begins or at the beginning of the Tribulation.

The One-World Government
Daniel 7:23 tells us of the establishment of a one-world government, the next event that leads up to the Tribulation. This fourth Gentile empire will continue until it eventually dominates the whole world. As to the exact nature of this government it will certainly be a form of imperialism, whether this will be in the form of the United Nations or that of another leadership is unknown. But what is known is that this one world government will emerge and devour the whole world.

The Ten Kingdoms
Based on Daniel 7:24, the one-world government that develops will eventually divide itself up into ten kingdoms. Much speculation in recent years points to the European Common Market. This, of course, is an erroneous attempt at "newspaper prophecy exegesis" which does not fit with what Scripture reveals. These ten kingdoms dominate the entire world rather than just the European continent alone. So, we see another important Pre-Tribulation event with this division of the one-world empire into ten kingdoms with ten kings who will rule the world. The Common Market, or Europe, might become one of the ten, but could certainly not become all ten.

The Apostasy
The Greek word "apostasia" is found in verse three and is variously translated in Bibles as falling away, rebellion, or apostasy. The Greek noun "apostasia" could refer to the Rapture of the Church and not the departure from the faith as is generally thought. The core meaning of the verb and noun is "depart." Apostasia can mean physical departure, in which case it would mean "to disappear. " It can also be used abstractly, in which case it would mean "to depart from the faith." Since the definite article is used in the Greek (i.e., the apostasia), it likely is a reference to a specific event - the Rapture of the Church. If this is the case then we gain an understanding as to what the restraining influence might be in verses six and seven. The Church is raptured before the start of the Tribulation and the Holy Spirit's restraining influence is removed with the departure of the Church. Evil will not have its full effect on earth until the removal of the Church. Either way there will be a great spiritual apostasy before the tribulation begins.

Revelation of the Antichrist
The Antichrist will begin his rise to power, according to Daniel 7:24, after the division of the world into ten kingdoms. It is clear from 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 that there is to be a revelation of the identity of the Antichrist before the Tribulation begins. Two events are said to occur before the "day of the Lord," which refers to the Tribulation. The first is the "apostasia" (or departure) and the second is the revelation of the man of sin, the son of perdition.

The Seven Year Covenant
It is not the Rapture of the Church that ushers in the Tribulation, but the signing of the seven-year covenant between Israel and the Antichrist (Daniel 9:27; Isaiah 28:14-22). The Rapture precedes the Tribulation by an unknown period of time but does not start it.

Peace and False Security
Another Pre-Tribulation event is revealed in 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3, where we see the term the day of the Lord is used once again. The devastation and destruction of the Tribulation is with sudden and devastating force at a time when people are actually saying, "Peace and safety." This period, then, must come just before the act that starts the Tribulation period itself. While the world is under the ten kingdoms and the Antichrist is rising to power there will be a period of peace and false security.

[The exact order of the Pre-Tribulation events are not certain until the events occur.] 2

THE TRIBULATION

According to Daniel 9:24-27 there were 70 "weeks of years," which equals 490 years of Israel's history to be fulfilled. There is a break after the 69th week as it was prophesied that Messiah would be killed. Finally there would be one last "week" in the future, the seven year period known as the Tribulation. These events of that last week of Israel's history have never happened, and will be fulfilled before the end of this age. The Church Age ends before the beginning of the 70th week and corresponds to the Rapture. During the Tribulation the Antichrist will come into power, first over a Revived Roman Empire (Daniel 2), and then over most of the earth.

The First Half of the Tribulation
The Tribulation begins with signing of the seven-year covenant between Israel and the Antichrist (Daniel 9:27a). The first half of the seven year Tribulation period is represented by the first six seals in Revelation chapter six. The Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached "in the whole world," and "to all nations." This will be accomplished by the work of the 144,000 sealed Jewish believers.

   The Gog and Magog Invasion of Israel
The power bloc to the north of Israel known as Gog and Magog will invade the land of Israel, but will be wiped out by God's supernatural intervention (Ezekiel 38-39).

The invaders are:(Rosh - Russia), (Meshech - Moscow), (Tubal - Tubalsk, Siberia), (Persia - Iran), (Ethiopia [Cush]), (Put - Libya), (Gomer - Germany), (Beth-Togarmah - Armenia).
[There are differences among Bible scholars as to the timing of the invasion of Ezekiel 38 and 39. The words "latter years" and "last days" are used in Ezekiel 38:8 and 38:16 and we know that for the nation of Israel the "last days" begins with Israel's Tribulation. So, the invasion must take place some time during the Tribulation.]

The Great Tribulation
The next intensified period of trouble, Matthew 24:15-28 (Mark 13:14-23; Luke 21:20-24), is called "The Great Tribulation" by Bible prophecy scholars, after Christ's own description of the time as one of "great distress." Daniel 9:27 indicates that Antichrist will make a covenant with Israel for seven years, but in the middle of it he will break the covenant. He will set up the "Abomination of Desolation" (Matthew 24:15), which will begin this subsequent great tribulation period. The "abomination that causes desolation" is a clear reference to Daniel 9:27, where in the middle of the "week," or seven-year peace treaty, Antichrist defiles the Temple by setting up an image of himself (Revelation 13:15) and demands the worship of all (2 Thessalonians 2:4). Antichrist will then have forty-two months to reign (Revelation 13:5, 14). See also Revelation 11:3 and 12:6 where this period of time is specified as 1,260 days, which equals 3 1/2 years using the lunar calendar of 30 days per month, the normal Biblical month.

During these last three and one half years, the believing residents of Israel will flee from Antichrist into the mountains. This is a reference to the place of God's protection for 42 months (Revelation 12:6), which is believed to be the city of Petra, the ancient capitol of the Edomites just east of the Dead Sea in modern Jordan. These last three and one half years of the Tribulation are covered by the Seven Trumpets and the Seven Bowls of God's wrath in the Book of Revelation, chapters 7-18.

   The Campaign of Armageddon
Armageddon, Hebrew for "Mount Megiddo," is a strategic valley in Northern Israel named for the nearby ancient city of Megiddo. It will be fought with the Antichrist, the coming world dictator. Christ will do battle and triumph over the combined military might of the earth, demonstrating that He is King of kings and Lord of lords (Revelation 19:11-21).

As the middle of the tribulation approaches, the King of the South, Egypt, and probably her allies, will be defeated by the armies of the Antichrist (Daniel 11:40-43). The King of the North is Syria and the lands to the north of the Holy Land. This is not the earlier battle described in Ezekiel 38-39, where a great military force from the north attacks the land of Israel. Ezekiel describes that time as a period of peace for Israel (Ezekiel 38:8, 11, 14), which is best identified as before the Tribulation period begins, or as the first half of Daniel's seventieth week, when Israel is in a covenant relationship with the Roman ruler, protected from attack. If Gog and Magog are involved in the King of the North battle it would indicate that they have the ability to assemble an army once again to participate in a military war. At the middle point of the tribulation the Antichrist breaks his treaty with Israel and demands to be worshiped (2 Thess. 2:4) while he seeks to conquer the world.

At the end of the Tribulation the nations of the East will form into a coalition which will move into the land of Israel (Revelation 16:12). As the Antichrist continues his march to world power, he will face his enemies from the east at Armageddon in northern Israel. 3

THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST

Christ, accompanied by the Church, will at this time set up the promised Davidic Kingdom on earth, replacing and bringing to an end, forever, the "Times of the Gentiles," with its corrupt political rule (Daniel 2:44).

Satan Bound and Confined
Revelation chapter 20 gives a clear picture of the binding of Satan in the abyss. Because of his banishment war on earth will cease, righteousness and peace will cover the earth with the reign of Christ as King over all the nations.

The Judgment of the Nation Israel
This Judgment occurs after the Battle of Armageddon and before the 1000 Year Millennium. All the living people of Jewish heritage will be judged. God will judge each individual separating the believers from the unbelievers. The unbelievers will be cast into "the outer darkness," known as Hades (Matthew 25:30), later to stand before The Great White Throne Judgment. The believers of Israel will be taken into the 1000 year Millennium, living in Jerusalem and the land of Israel with Christ.

The Judgment of the Gentiles
This is the time when all Gentiles who have survived the 7 year Tribulation Period will be judged. Individual Gentiles will be judged according to the treatment of Christ's brethren, the Jewish people (Zechariah 14:1-9; Matthew 25:31-46). This occurs after the Battle of Armageddon and before the 1000 year Millennium. Those Gentiles at this judgment who rejected the message of Christ's witnesses during the Tribulation Period will go into eternal punishment to await the Great White Throne Judgment. Those Gentiles who believed their Gospel message will enter the Millennial Kingdom.

Resurrection of Tribulation Saints and the Old Testament Saints
This resurrection occurs at Christ's Second Advent to earth (1 Corinthians 15:23). It entails all the Old Testament saints and those believers who, during the Tribulation Period, lost their lives because of their faith (Revelation 20:4-5). They will join the Church and reign with Christ on earth during His glorious Millennial rule. 4

THE 1000 YEAR MILLENNIUM

The Millennial reign of Jesus Christ, a future 1000 year period when the earth is placed under His direct rule, is a time when peace and righteousness will reign here on earth. Christ will rule over the nations of the earth with "a rod of iron" (Revelation 19:15) and "nation will not lift up sword against nation and never again will they learn war" (Isaiah 2:4). Christ, the Son of David, will reign over His Kingdom from His father David's throne in Jerusalem, fulfilling the Davidic covenant through which Israel was promised a Throne, King and Kingdom, forever (2 Samuel 7:4-16).

Marriage Supper of the Lamb (Wedding Feast)
We have seen that the "Marriage of the Lamb" is an event that has reference only to the Church and takes place in Heaven. The "Marriage Supper" of the Lamb is an event that takes place on earth after the Second Advent of Christ. Though the two events are closely related, they are separate events, just as the wedding ceremony and the wedding reception of our day are separate events. Those who are invited to attend the marriage supper on earth are all the Old Testament saints and the Tribulation saints, both mortal and resurrected, after Christ's Second Coming. There are New Testament passages that speak of Christ eating and banqueting in the kingdom which may be references to the celebration related to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. These passages imply that the celebration of the marriage supper begins in the millennial kingdom: Matthew 8:11; Luke 13:28-29; Luke 22:16-18, 29-30. 5

THE LOOSING OF SATAN AND THE LAST REVOLT

Satan must be loosed for a little while from his thousand-year imprisonment (Revelation 20:7-10). This must complete the grounds for divine judgment against this great fallen angel. Wars which had ceased when he was bound are resumed and those who had lived in the peace and glory of the Kingdom are deceived, and war follows only to be ended by the destruction of those armies by God.

The Doom of Satan
Satan has already been judged at the cross (John 16:11). He is to be banished from accessing Heaven, where he accuses Believers before God, being thrown down to the earth during the time of the Tribulation (Revelation 12:7-12). After the tribulation he is imprisoned, bound and cast into the abyss for the duration of the Millennium (Revelation 20:1-3). The final doom which ends Satan's career is when he is cast into the never ending torment of the Lake of Fire and Brimstone, where the Beast and the False Prophet are consigned to, along with all who have not believed the Word of God throughout the history of the earth.(Revelation 20:10-15). 6

THE PASSING OF THE PRESENT EARTH AND HEAVEN

This present earth is to be purified after the Final rebellion which closes the Millennium. The earth is to be purified through burning, because the earth has become polluted with sin. 7

THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT

All unbelievers throughout the history of the earth will face a final judgment. They are to be raised from the dead after the Millennial period and will be judged according to their works, then to be committed to the Lake of Fire, which is the second death. 8

THE CREATION OF A NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH

The New Heavens and the New Earth will be formed after this present Earth burns up and is purified. This is the LAST and final part of God's eternal plan for mankind. All the redeemed, saved, of all the ages will be there! This will be the ultimate in glory, reigning forever with Christ in a New Heaven and a New Earth. 9
