The Tribulation Survival Guide

Below is part of my guide of “The Rapture Survival Guide” Part 1. I re-posted this under ‘Tribulation Survival Guide’ to help direct searches to the correct area, as more people know what the Rapture is than the Tribulation.

For the original guide follow through to Part 1.

Introduction
The Rapture, otherwise known as “the Harpazo” is a Christian religious event in which the believers saved in Jesus Christ and those younger than the accountable age vanish from earth in the “twinkling of an eye” (instantly) meeting Jesus in the air. Those who rejected Jesus and were left behind on earth will be subject to 7 years of the wrath of God, known as the Tribulation. Immediately following this will be Jesus’ second triumphant return with those who were raptured previously, where He will claim His throne in Jerusalem and rule for 1000 years.

Following the removal of God’s people from earth in the Rapture and the standing aside by the ‘restrainer’ (the Holy Spirit) there will be utter chaos in the world as people seek to understand what happened. If you’re one of these people – you have found the answers to all the questions you may have on the subject alongside the Bible. Be warned that there will be a “lie” (2 Thessalonians 2:11) that is so powerful it will fool even the smartest of people. Many Christians believe that this lie will be an alien deception of some sort because it’s the only logic that could explain the disappearance of millions of people from earth in a single moment.

The tribulation covers the period of time in which the antichrist (someone who puts themself in place of God) rises to power and makes an existing covenant with Israel – even more spectacular, allowing them to build the third temple. Mid-way through the covenant he sits on the throne in the third temple of Jerusalem and claims to be god, kicking off the second half of the tribulation. (3.5 years into the covenant)

He will then proceed to slaughter all Jews and newly converted Christians throughout the entire globe and all those who refuse to take his ‘mark’ – The Mark of the Beast on either their right hand or forehead. The bible says his mark “666” will need to be ‘calculated’ and won’t be easily identifiable. (Revelation 13:18)

During this rise and reign of the antichrist God will be pouring out His just judgements on this increasingly sinful world which will cause utter devastation on the planet and ultimately cause the nations of the world to come together to battle God at Armageddon.

All of the terms discussed above are discussed in detail below to help you understand God’s plan for the gentiles (non Jews) and the plan for His nation of Israel in the final chapter of earth. So keep reading and feel free to print, copy, email and disseminate this guide to anyone and everyone seeking truth in these ‘biblical’ times as there are no copyrights on it.

If some of these prophecies such as the rapture have already been fulfilled and you’re seeking answers, please keep reading! If anything, the events in the book of Revelation (and re-iterated below) can be used to verify that the bible is 100% truth and given from a God outside of space and time. This section goes hand in hand with the “RELIGION > Christianity” section found in “The Preparedness Encyclopedia” by Fluidic Ice.

1 Corinthians 15:51-53
Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

One of the verses in the bible referencing the rapture of the church.

What is Salvation?
Salvation is the deliverance from sin. To save means to deliver or protect. Jesus equated being saved with entering the kingdom of God (Matthew 19:24-25).

What are we saved from? We are saved from God’s wrath, that is, His judgment of our sin when we meet Him face to face (Romans 5:9; 1 Thessalonians 5:9). Our sin has separated us from God, and the consequence of this violation of God’s law is death (Romans 6:23). Biblical salvation refers to our deliverance from the consequences of sin and therefore involves the removal of sin which is already paid for by Jesus on the cross.

Who does the saving? Only God can remove sin and deliver us from sin’s penalty (2 Timothy 1:9; Titus 3:5). How does God save? God has rescued us through Jesus’s death on the cross and subsequent resurrection which achieved our salvation (Romans 5:10; Ephesians 1:7). Scripture is clear that salvation is the gracious, undeserved gift of God (Ephesians 2:5, 8) which is ours for the taking through faith in Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12). How do we receive salvation? We are saved by faith. First, we must hear the gospel—the good news of Jesus’ death and resurrection (Ephesians 1:13).

Then, we must believe—fully trust the Lord Jesus (Romans 1:16). This involves repentance, a changing of mind about sin and Christ (Acts 3:19), and calling on the name of the Lord (Romans 10:9-10, 13). A definition of salvation would be “The deliverance, by the grace of God, from eternal punishment for sin which is granted to those who accept by faith God’s conditions of repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus.” Salvation is available in Jesus alone (John 14:6; Acts 4:12) and is dependent on God alone for provision, assurance, and security.

Your acceptance or denial of Jesus will affect where you spend eternity, and every soul lives forever it’s just a matter of location. A prerequisite for becoming saved is knowing that God exists and that He created you, the universe and heavens. God wrote the bible to further prove His existence to us alongside the wondrous and spectacular world around us. There are countless incredible facts about the Bible that prove it had to be designed outside of space and time. For a few of these amazing insights read the ‘Evidence for God’ section in ‘Christianity’.

A B Cs to Salvation
The ABCs of Salvation

To Become Saved
A
Admit that you are a sinner. Any gap between God’s perfect law and our imperfect obedience is called sin, which everyone has committed.

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” (Romans 3:23)
“There is none righteous, no, not one;” (Romans 3:10)
“If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (1 John 1:10)
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)

B
Believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and that God raised Jesus from the dead on the third day, taking the punishment you deserved. Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father but by me.” (John 14:6) Your own good works cannot save you, no matter how good a person you are, and wouldn’t the creator of heaven set the bar for entry?

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
“But God commends his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners. Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)

C
Call upon the name of the Lord and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Through prayer, invite Jesus into your heart to become your personal Lord and Saviour. There is an example prayer below.

“If you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9)

Pray
“Dear God, I am a sinner and need your forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ shed His precious blood and died for my sins. I am willing and ready to change and turn from my sin. I now invite Jesus Christ to come into my heart and life, as my personal Saviour.”

“Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Joel 2:32 / Acts 2:21 / Romans 10:13

You’re Saved!
Once you’ve prayed this prayer, believing it with all your heart, your debt has been paid and you’re now saved by the power of the blood of Jesus! He paid that ultimate price of our sin, sacrificing Himself so that we may live. However it’s easy to say something with your mouth, what takes real effort is living out a life in pursuit of Jesus, walking according to His will for you and leaving your old sinful ways behind.

Below are some more verses related to salvation and justification, as well as some next steps you should take as a new Christian to help cement your faith. If there’s one thing that Satan despises, it’s new Christians. So be prepared to battle against the spiritual forces of wickedness by praying and reading your bible daily as well as putting on your spiritual armour.

● “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)
● “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)
● “I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.” (Luke 13:5)
● “Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.” (Galatians 2:16)
● “How that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)

What to do now
● Talk to God in prayer every day
“And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.” (Matthew 21:22)
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;” (Philippians 4:6)
“But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our report?” 17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:16-17)

● Be baptized, worship, fellowship, and serve with other Christians in a church where Christ is preached and the Bible is the final authority on everything.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,” (Matthew 28:19)
“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.” (Hebrews 10:25)
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16)

● Tell others about Christ
“And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15)
“For if I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast of, for necessity is laid upon me; yes, woe is me if I do not preach the gospel!” (1 Corinthians 9:16)
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.” (Romans 1:16)

● Walking with Jesus
If you have received Jesus Christ as your Saviour, as a Christian you should Read your Bible daily to get to know Christ better. Read the Holy Bible (KJV, NKJV, ESV), the guide and tool to kindness and the right path to eternal life. If you encounter questions, resolve them by asking someone at your church or another steadfast Christian to help you with them. “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15)
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” (Psalms 119:105)

● Seek Earnestly
As always if you wish to find answers out for yourself you should search God’s word. If you’re told something, search the scriptures to ensure that is what they say and the wording isn’t twisted. Take caution not to be fooled by what others claim the bible says but do your own research. There will be great apostasy and a falling away from Christianity in the end times. The word of God is living and he can speak to you through his words. So find a bible.
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” (Matthew 7:7-8)

● Godly Armour
You need to equip your spiritual armour. For more information read the Christianity section in ‘The Rapture Survival Guide (TRSG)’.

Next Steps
You should research what the bible has to say on prophecy and the end times. Take a look at the ‘The Rapture’ section in TRSG for more information, but if you have already I recommend watching some of the videos in the ‘Christian Content’ section also within the same document.

The New Jerusalem
A new heaven and a new earth is created, where those who love the Lord will dwell with Him forever. There will be no sin, death, pain or sorrow and everything will be perfect. Part of this creation will be a New Jerusalem which has no need for the sun or moon because the glory of God illuminates it. This is described quite thoroughly by John in Revelation 21. Something to note is that the new Jerusalem described below may not be in three dimensions but four, hence the highlighted words in the verse below and the one below that. Breadth is the unit of length/direction which isn’t used in our third dimension world. This phrasing is only found in the KJV and the bolding below is my own.

Ephesians 3:17-19 (KJV)
“17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.”

2 Peter 3:10-13
“10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. 11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.”

Revelation 21:1-27
“1 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea.
2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God.
4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
5 Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.”
6 And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.” And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.
7 He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.
8 But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
9 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, “Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.”
10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
11 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.
12 Also she had a great and high wall with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
13 three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west.
14 Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
15 And he who talked with me had a gold reed to measure the city, its gates, and its wall.
16 The city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured the city with the reed: twelve thousand furlongs. Its length, breadth, and height are equal.
17 Then he measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel.
18 The construction of its wall was of jasper; and the city was pure gold, like clear glass.
19 The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all kinds of precious stones: the first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald,
20 the fifth sardonyx, the sixth sardius, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst.
21 The twelve gates were twelve pearls: each individual gate was of one pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.
22 But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.
23 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light.
24 And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it.
25 Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there).
26 And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it.
27 But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.”

Next Steps
This is the end of the Rapture Survival Guide, If you still have questions you should read the Bible for yourself or head back up to the ‘Seeking Truth > Reliable Christian Content’ section and watch some of the videos those pastors have on almost any topic you could imagine. Alternatively you could go to the Christianity section in TRSG and continue reading.

The Rebellion
After the thousand years of Jesus’ peaceful reign satan is released to deceive the nations once again. He deceives them with a lie and then brings them against God, and against His people, surrounding the city of Jerusalem. The army he musters will number as many as the sand of the sea which just shows how many people will be alive at the end of the millennium when people don’t die as early. God then destroys this army by fire from the sky.

Revelation 20:3
“But after these things he [satan] must be released for a little while.”

Revelation 20:7-9
“7 Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison 8 and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. 9 They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them.”

Satan’s Demise
The devil is thrown into hell to be tormented for ever and ever after God destroys the rebellion. He will be joining the antichrist and the false prophet who have been there burning for the past thousand years already.

Revelation 20:10
“The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.””

Great White Throne Judgement
At the Great White Throne Judgement the dead who had not believed in God or followed his word are resurrected to be judged. Heaven and earth will flee away from the face of Him who sits on the throne, which is hard to imagine since we always picture something physical. Those not found in the book of life are thrown into the lake of fire. Death and Hades are then thrown into the lake of fire, meaning nobody will be able to die from this point forward. This is the last and final judgement.

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

The Millennium
The millennium is the period of 1,000 years when Jesus reigns over the entire earth with a rod of iron. (Revelation 19:15) Nations must travel to Jerusalem once a year to maintain blessings from God or he will withhold rain on that nation. During the millennium there will be births and deaths as we know them now, however the average age of a person is much longer, greatly exceeding 100 years old. Animals will no longer harm people and a child can play with a cobra without fear. However those who don’t worship or follow God will be cursed and have shorter lives.

Those who were loyal to Christ during their life and walked closely with Him will reign with Christ for the millennium with glorified bodies. Those who were saved but didn’t walk the path set for them by God will likely just live in the millennium. Glorified bodies are bodies which can’t sin and include multi-dimensional abilities likely allowing instant transportation and the ability to appear within a closed room such as Jesus’ movements after His resurrection.

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

The verse above describes those who died in the tribulation for their testimony of Jesus and who did not take the mark will live and reign with Jesus for the 1,000 years. Those who did not believe aren’t resurrected until the Great White Throne Judgement which occurs after the millennium is complete.

Isaiah 65:20-25
“20 “No more shall an infant from there live but a few days, Nor an old man who has not fulfilled his days; For the child shall die one hundred years old, But the sinner being one hundred years old shall be accursed. 21 They shall build houses and inhabit them; They shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit. 22 They shall not build and another inhabit; They shall not plant and another eat; For as the days of a tree, so shall be the days of My people, And My elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. 23 They shall not labor in vain, Nor bring forth children for trouble; For they shall be the descendants of the blessed of the Lord, And their offspring with them. 24 “It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer; And while they are still speaking, I will hear. 25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, The lion shall eat straw like the ox, And dust shall be the serpent’s food. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain,” Says the Lord.”

This verse shows the greatly increased maximum age in the millennium. Someone who is 100 years old will be considered a child with most of their life ahead of them. The sinners however will be cursed with a shorter life. This implies that there will still be personal choice and sin in the world, even without the deceiver – satan. The world will also be much more fruitful and crops will be easier to take care of and produce much more food. Children will be raised righteously with a love of God, yet they will have free will and will be able to choose between right and wrong as evidenced by some nations not coming to Jerusalem for the feast of tabernacles each year. (Zechariah 14:17-19)

Zechariah 14:16-21
“16 And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 17 And it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, on them there will be no rain. 18 If the family of Egypt will not come up and enter in, they shall have no rain; they shall receive the plague with which the Lord strikes the nations who do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 20 In that day “HOLINESS TO THE LORD” shall be engraved on the bells of the horses. The pots in the Lord’s house shall be like the bowls before the altar. 21 Yes, every pot in Jerusalem and Judah shall be holiness to the Lord of hosts. Everyone who sacrifices shall come and take them and cook in them. In that day there shall no longer be a Canaanite in the house of the Lord of hosts.”

This passage says that the nations of the world will come to Jerusalem each year to worship the Lord and to take past in the feast of tabernacles. For those nations that don’t however, the Lord will withhold the rain on their lands.

Isaiah 11:6-9
“6 “The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, The leopard shall lie down with the young goat, The calf and the young lion and the fatling together; And a little child shall lead them. 7 The cow and the bear shall graze; Their young ones shall lie down together; And the lion shall eat straw like the ox. 8 The nursing child shall play by the cobra’s hole, And the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper’s den. 9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.”

Isaiah 11 is an interesting passage describing what living in the millennium will be like. Animals will settle down and won’t harm each other, or humans during the millennium. Children won’t have any fear of snakes – or any other animal for that matter.

The Second Coming
“Then they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.” Matthew 24:30

This is the second coming of Jesus, where He purges the world of sin and rules from Jerusalem for 1,000 years. When this event occurs then there’s no use for the remainder of this document. If you’ve survived to the end of the tribulation as a firm, born-again Christian then you should be excited for the second coming of Jesus. You, and likely some of the raptured saints who weren’t dedicated to Jesus, living your life for Him at all times will be the people who populate the earth in the millennial reign. Unlike the first coming as a human, this time Jesus will return in all His might, power and wrath, destroying His enemies on arrival. The chance of the army gathered at Armageddon actually winning is 0%, with no absolutely no doubt about it.

We know Jesus’ second coming will be a literal event and will be just like He went to heaven the first time. Acts 1:9-11 says the following, “Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, who also said, ‘Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.’”

Look For
● Jesus with an army from Heaven appearing
● His feet will touch the Mount of Olives
● Jesus will kill all those opposed to Him
● The Mount of Olives splits into two

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

Zechariah 14:3-5
“3 Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, as He fights in the day of battle. 4 And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, from east to west, making a very large valley; half of the mountain shall move toward the north and half of it toward the south. 5 Then you shall flee through My mountain valley, for the mountain valley shall reach to Azal. Yes, you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah.

Thus the Lord my God will come, and all the saints with You.”

Zechariah 14:6-9
“6 It shall come to pass in that day that there will be no light; the lights will diminish. 7 It shall be one day which is known to the Lord— Neither day nor night. But at evening time it shall happen that it will be light. 8 And in that day it shall be that living waters shall flow from Jerusalem, half of them toward the eastern sea and half of them toward the western sea; In both summer and winter it shall occur. 9 And the Lord shall be King over all the earth. In that day it shall be— “The Lord is one,” And His name one. 9 And the Lord shall be King over all the earth. In that day it shall be— “The Lord is one,” and His name one.”

The Army Defeated
The antichrist and his armies are defeated by Jesus and the birds of the world will come to feast on their bodies. Revelation 19:15 “Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations.”

Look For
● The antichrist and his armies are defeated

Revelation 19:17-21
“17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, “Come and gather together for the supper of the great God, 18 that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great.” 19 And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. 20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.”

Lake of Fire
The beast and false prophet are cast into the lake of fire.

Revelation 19:20
“Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.”

Satan Bound
Satan is bound for 1,000 years in the bottomless pit so that he may no longer deceive the nations until the thousand years were up. After the thousand years he must be released for a little while to deceive the nations once more.

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

Sheep and Goats Judgement
The sheep and goats judgement occurs after the tribulation when Jesus returns to claim His throne. Everyone who remains on the earth will be grouped into either the sheep (His followers) or the goats (those who lived for themselves or worshiped the antichrist). Those who are to His left will be sent to hell forever and those on His right will inherit the kingdom with Him and will live during the coming millennium. Some scholars believe the old testament saints will be resurrected prior to this judgement to live and reign with Jesus.

Matthew 25:31-46
“31 “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. 33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; 36 I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
41 “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; 43 I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’
44 “Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ 45 Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ 46 And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.””

Tribulation End
This just marks the end of the tribulation or the “Time of Jacob’s Trouble” which ends after God’s wrath is fulfilled. As soon as it ends, Matthew 24:29 and Mark 13:24 say that the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. These events occur as soon as the tribulation ends and lead into the glorious return of Jesus Christ to earth in all His glory. The world will also exist about 45 days after the end of the tribulation while the armies of the world gather at Armageddon.

Look For
● A Darkened Sun
● The Moon won’t Shine
● Stars will or have previously fallen from Heaven
● “The powers of heaven will be shaken”

Matthew 24:29-31
“29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”

Mark 13:24-27
“24 “But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; 25 the stars of heaven will fall, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. 26 Then they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. 27 And then He will send His angels, and gather together His elect from the four winds, from the farthest part of earth to the farthest part of heaven.”

Armageddon Gathering
The armies of the antichrist gather at Armageddon (Tel-Megiddo) to battle God.

Look For
● The armies of the world gathering at Armageddon

Revelation 16:16
“And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon.”

Revelation 19:19
“And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army”

Coordinates of Armageddon
● 32°36’57″N
● 35°12’46″E

During the time since the tribulation ended, the sun will be darkened, the moon won’t give any light and the stars will fall from heaven. The powers of heaven will also be shaken, however not much is know about what this will actually look like in person.

The Seventh Bowl (Armageddon)

The seventh bowl releases noises, thunderings and lightnings and the biggest earthquake in history which divides Babylon into 3 parts. Every mountain falls, islands move out of place and exceedingly great hail falls from heaven.

Look For
● Noises, Thunder, Lightning
● The biggest earthquake in all history splitting Babylon into 3 parts
● Hailstones each about 34.2kg (75.3 lbs) fall from heaven
● Blasphemy against God

Revelation 16:17-18
“Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, “It is done!” And there were noises and thunderings and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth. Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And great Babylon was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath. Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And great hail from heaven fell upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent. Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great.”

Hail
A hailstone weight 1 talent would equal 34kg or 75lbs today and would be about the size of 33 litres (8.7gal) of water frozen into a solid block. This block of ice would therefore be 33cm (13in) x 33cm x 33cm. However since only 5% of hail is frozen water it would be much larger than that. It only takes hail the size of a golf ball to kill someone and this hail could be the size of a briefcase (but round).

Earthquake
For the earthquake to be so large that it has never occurred before in human history, it would have to be at least a magnitude 11. This assumes that the reason every mountain and island moved across the planet in the 6th seal was the result of an earthquake and not the sky receding. It would also likely have to be less than magnitude 15 as an earthquake of this scale could potentially wipe out all life on earth. We also know that this earthquake splits Babylon into 3 parts, therefore the epicentre will be somewhere close by.

Babylon will likely be constructed around Al-Hillah in Iraq where the previous Babylon empire was located. The coordinates are 32.478642, 44.451235 (32°28’43.1″ N, 44°27’4.4″ E) if you’re interested. If you want the safest place from the earthquake I recommend the opposite side of the earth which is directly in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean. Although since there will be catastrophic aftershocks circling the globe it’s likely that many tsunamis will follow, which makes nowhere safe. This is one of your last chances to repent and turn from your ways.

Blasphemy
For people to blaspheme against God they must know that there is a God causing these disasters in the first place, but if you believe that there is a God who created the universe, why would you attempt to go up against Him with mortal weapons?

“It is done!” Revelation 16:17

The Sixth Bowl (Euphrates Dried Up)

The sixth bowl dries up the Euphrates river to make way for the kings of the east. Demons go out to the nations of the earth to gather them for the battle with God. It takes a very depraved mind or a strong deception to trick people into believing that they can defeat the God of the universe in a battle with mortal weapons.

Look For
● The Euphrates river dries up
● The Euphrates is used by the armies to the east to travel to Armageddon
● Demons gather kings together in Israel at Armageddon

Revelation 16:12-16
“Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.” And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon.”

The Euphrates
The Euphrates is the longest and one of the most historically important rivers of Western Asia. Together with the Tigris, it is one of the two defining rivers of Mesopotamia. It is approximately 2,800 km (1,700 mi) long. The Euphrates receives most of its water in the form of rainfall and melting snow, resulting in peak volumes during the months April through May. Since rain and snow is the primary source of the river it’s likely that the extreme heat in the 4th bowl prevents snow and therefore assists in the drying up of the river. That isn’t to say that there won’t be other reasons why it dries up such as dam construction or supernatural intervention. Currently the Euphrates restricts movement from the east to the west due to its large width which ranges from about 45m (147ft) to about 2.7km (1.67mi) at its widest point.

Gathering Against God
To finish off this bowl, demons will go out to the ends of the earth from the satanic trinity and gather together the nations in Armageddon to battle God. They absolutely cannot win against an eternal God who made them, the earth and the universe. The likeliest reason why they believe they have a chance against God is all the movies that come out of Hollywood depicting humans defeating aliens and gods who attempt to invade. That, plus the fact they will be deceived by demons. As we know God will destroy them with the brightness of His coming.

Coming as a Thief
Verses 15 and 16 in Revelation 16 are a parentheses between the 6th and the 7th bowl, just like between the 6th and 7th seals and the 6th and 7th trumpets. It does NOT mean that this is the point when the rapture occurs – although if you’re following along in the tribulation you would already know this.

Related Verses
○ Dried Up
       ● Nahum 1:4 “He rebukes the sea and makes it dry, and dries up all the rivers.”
       ● Genesis 8:7 “Then he sent out a raven, which kept going to and fro until the waters had dried up from the earth.”
       ● Joshua 2:10 “For we have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt”
       ● Joshua 4:23 “for the Lord your God dried up the waters of the Jordan before you until you had crossed over, as the Lord your God did to the Red Sea, which He dried up before us until we had crossed over,”

If you understand the way the Bible is set out with its heptadic structure there could be a potential time gap here between the 6th and the 7th bowls.

The Fifth Bowl (Darkness and Pain)

The fifth bowl plunges the kingdom of the beast into painful darkness and gives everyone in the kingdom of Babylon sores. This is darkness that you can ‘feel’ just like the darkness plague in Egypt back in Exodus.

Look For
● Darkness over Babylon
● Pain to those in Babylon
● Blasphemy against God

Revelation 16:10-11
“Then the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom became full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues because of the pain. They blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and did not repent of their deeds.”

Not only would they be able to feel this darkness, they won’t be able to see each other for the duration just like Egypt back in Exodus. Even after so many plagues, disasters and judgements they still won’t repent and instead blaspheme against God almighty.

Related Verses
○ Darkness
       ● 9th Plague (Exodus 10:21-29) “Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, darkness which may even be felt.””
