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 (TPE)” also written by me. If this section has been separated from its parent document you can head to www.fluidicice.com/TPE to download the rest for free.
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.
End Times Timeline
This is a diagram of the likeliest scenario of how end time events could unfold, based on a premillennial dispensational view of Christianity. It can be used to refer back to when reading through the rest of this section as you won’t understand each event without further study. The diagram may be a bit daunting on first look, but after reading the scriptures (mostly Revelation) you should slowly be able to work out what each event signifies and where you sit in God’s end times timeline.
I recommend downloading and printing the diagrams to help follow along with. To download these images just right click one and select “Save image as…” then choose the location you want to save it to.
TLDR: The horizontal axis is time and the vertical axis splits up the events in heaven and on earth. If you draw a vertical line anywhere on the diagram, any horizontal lines that intersect with it may be occurring at that time. Colours have a relationship with anything else that colour.
Reading the Diagram
To start reading this rather complicated diagram take a look at the white ‘Time’ bar near the top. This shows approximate timings for the events below such as the tribulation and the millennium. A little further down in the light blue section are the events that take place in heaven. Vertical lines spanning heaven and earth just show you these events occur in both places. Any coloured text adjacent to coloured lines shows a relationship. Coloured text is used to link common themes throughout the document, such as satanic influences and events appearing red, events involving raptured believers in baby blue and the events involving Israel being purple.
The events on earth are found under the heaven section and have a light brown and light red background. This is the section you will likely be focusing on the most if you’ve missed the rapture as it contains the seals, trumpets and bowls. I recommend drawing a vertical line on the diagram every so often to keep track of where you are in God’s grand scheme. The gradient lines on the diagram are themed to particular events, people or groups of people and generally cover most of the timeline. The weaker the gradient – the less it applies.
The events after the tribulation such as the millennium and eternity are more for your general information due to not needing this diagram after the second coming of Jesus. That’s about it, if you still have questions on it try giving the referenced scriptures a read.
The diagram starts before the rapture of the church where lawlessness, natural disasters and the persecution of the church will grow ever stronger in an attempt to wake people up from their spiritual slumber and to turn them back to God. Then the rapture happens (the blue line with an upwards arrow on the left) and the restrainer steps aside allowing all hell to break loose on earth. People will loot, steal, murder, riot and cry out in agony as the entire world breaks down. The deception sent by God will fool many into believing ‘the lie’ and people will be fixed to their TV’s in disbelief at what’s happening.
Out of the shadows the one who will be called the ‘antichrist’ will rise to power having solutions to the worlds problems. (the orange gradient at the bottom) He will then establish a covenant with Israel allowing the third temple to be built (maroon line at the bottom), kicking off the tribulation period (the entire light red area in the middle). The tribulation is a time of God’s wrath on the world – but particularly Israel, and consists of 21 scroll related events in the form of seals, trumpets and bowls including a few others mentioned throughout the bible. The seals are the orange gradients near the top and the trumpets are the red/orange gradients in the middle of the diagram)
3.5 years into the covenant with Israel (the red dotted line in exactly the middle), the antichrist will sit on the throne in the third temple and desecrate it with abominations to God. This is known as the Abomination of Desolation which starts the horrific second half of the tribulation known as the “Great Tribulation” where the Jews and Christians are hunted down for their faith. (The green gradient near the bottom) It is this point where the antichrist will mandate a ‘mark’ that everyone must take to be able to buy and trade with, and whoever doesn’t take this mark will be beheaded. The bowls of God’s wrath will be poured out on the world somewhere throughout this second half. (The maroon gradients with number in the middle-right) Near the end of the 7 years the Euphrates river will dry up (Bowl 5) allowing the nations of the world to gather in Armageddon, Israel to fight God. (Bowl 6) Jesus will then come gloriously from heaven with those who were raptured and kill all those who took the mark of the beast and those who do not believe in Him. (The white vertical bar before the millennium)
Satan will be bound and those Christians who survived the tribulation and those who returned from heaven will live harmoniously in the millennium with Jesus reigning. (The green section to the right) After the 1,000 years have finished, satan will be released once more to deceive the nations for a time and then Jesus will destroy the uprising. (The white section to the right after the millennium) The great white throne judgement then occurs, where all the old testament saints and unbelievers throughout history are raised to life and judged for what they did in life. (The black bar) Once the judgement has passed and everyone has been grouped to either His left hand or right hand, he will send them to either everlasting life in heaven or everlasting judgement in hell. Finally, a new heaven and a new earth will be created for us to live in eternally. (The yellow and light blue bars)
First, to comprehensively explain what will happen after the rapture (or what has happened already) you need to understand what the bible says on the rapture and the events leading up to it, even if it’s already happened. You would undoubtedly have many questions on current events and the bible passages below will shed some light on it. It will also help you not to be tricked by the POWERFUL deception and lies that will undoubtedly be on the news and TV attempting to explain the disappearance of only Christians and children, likely with some sort of ‘aliens invade’ narrative as demons will be working overtime to trick all those who weren’t taken.
If you’re unfamiliar with demons – they have the capability to produce signs, shapes, lights and anything else we can see visibly in the sky and satan will likely use it to trick those who remain on the earth. Keep in mind that it could be the Christians in the sky with the Lord who appear as bright lights, which could be this deception God sends. If you wish to study more on demons and how they can interact with our world I recommend the videos below by Billy Crone which can be watched and downloaded for free.
