Have The Prophetic Time Clock Hit The Final Seconds?




So, What's Next? Who Will Build The Third Temple, Trump Or Antichrist?

By Abraham Israel







BREAKING NEWS (PROPHECY IN FULL MANIFESTATION) 2017, this was the heading that invited me to read a small article as it has been passed through whatsapp through my friends, and I too passed it along to others....but it made me to blow the trumpet of God through His Word to His people in all the world through this article.

But is it true that we have come to the time that we need to pay more attention to the current news, and take a Bible along and read aloud the same thing being written in it to see its fulfillment before our very eyes?

If I see and sense what has happened prophetically on December 6, 2017, it is indeed a BIG PROPHETIC TIMELINE we are touching!

Yes we are in a time when we need to pay more attention to Current news : Trump approved Jerusalem as the capital of Israel today, December 6, 2017.

The President makes a world-important declaration about global politics, and an important apocalyptic thought arises, "Jerusalem? The Last Days must be at hand!"

We saw after the above declaration by the President Trump, Israel as a nation rejoiced because at last with conviction and courage Jerusalem was finally recognized as its capital after more than two millenniums of denials and disrespect for it. As Jerusalem was once again declared the capital of Israel by a US President, now we see the Palestine authorities too claiming Jerusalem to be their Capital when there is no historical evidence or archeological evidence for their claim.

King David is one of the most important figures in Jewish history. Born in 907 B.C, he reigned as king of Israel for 40 years, then died at age 70 in 837 B.C.

So how does King David is connected to Jerusalem?

For the 440 years since the Jewish people first entered the Land of Israel until the time of King David, Jerusalem has remained an unconquered non-Jewish city in the heart of a Jewish country.

It is a city-state inhabited by Canaanite tribe called Jebusites (the Arab village of Silwan, just south of the walls of the Old City, is located there now).

So before David united ancient Israel under one, undivided throne, King David had to conquer the Jebusite stronghold on a hill later and renamed it the City of David, which is located in the modern-day city of Jerusalem. The Jebusites, the Bible relates, were so confident in their defense against David’s attack that they taunted the mighty king, saying the blind and lame could sufficiently defend the city (2 Samuel 5:6).

This angered David. He challenged his top military generals by offering command of his army to the warrior who could successfully capture the fortified stronghold. The Bible says Joab coordinated the sneak attack on the Jebusite city through a water conduit—tsinnor in Hebrew— and factored it into a successful conquest (see 2 Samuel 5:8).

So the real Biblical truth behind Jerusalem is, it has been the Capital of the Jews from the time of King David in the Bible, until around A.D. 35 to 70 (Matt 5:35; 23:37-39), when all Jews were forced to flee from Jerusalem to other countries around the world (Luke 21:20-24).

So now we know, that Jerusalem is actually regaining by and by its original name as the capital city of Israel, for the first time ever being recognized in our generation by the president of the United States of America.

What to look out for in this important time period we live?

NEXT...

There is going to be more increase of intifada, war of Muslim countries against the Jews and against America and evangelical Christians who believe in the Bible and look forward to all the END TIME prophesies of the Bible.

NEXT...

THE SITE OF THE TEMPLE?

It is often mentioned that the Western Wall is the holiest spot in the world for the Jews. This is simply not true, but it has become important by tradition rather by truth.

The Western Wall is merely a retaining wall built around Mt Moriah by Herod the Great more than 2,000 years ago. The holiest spot is Mt Moriah itself. Today this holiest of places is wrongly believed to be hidden behind the Western Wall and under the Moslem shrine called the Dome of the Rock.

Of course we know that the third Temple Prophesied in the Bible must be built on Mount Moriah again, if as the New Testament predicts, for the Antichrist to appear in it, so that by breaking his 7 year covenant in the middle [i.e. 3.5 years] with the Jewish state and proclaiming himself as the god in the flesh and the Messiah of the whole world, he will make the prophetic wheels rolling and fasten it to the day Jesus will appear on earth as the KING OF KINGS and LORD OF LORDS to rule it for a thousand years time (2 Thess 2:3, 4).

The Temple whose building material has already been prepared could only be built in Jerusalem. But is it exactly in the place of the Dome of the Rock and the surrounding Al-aqsa Mosque area, which the Muslims see as the only SURVIVING (shrine) of the Muslims in the Middle East?

Anything could happen between now and the end of Trump's Presidency or even the re-election of Trump as we see the Middle East boiling regarding where the Temple is to be built.

When the Jews rejected Jesus as the Messiah, God chose the church to accomplish his mission (Matt 21:41, 42, 43). Soon this "church age" would end with the rapture of true believers any time after the abomination of desolation (Eph 2:5-7; 1 Thess 1:10; 4:14-18; Matt 24:15, 20-21, 22). But once the rapture happens, all hell will break loose on this earth through the beastly brutality of Antichrist and the wrath of God which will be God's warning to Antichrist about the eternal hell fire waiting for him and his followers on earth (Rev 16:1, 2, 10-11, 12; 19:19, 20, 21).

This would spark a series of cataclysmic events that would culminate in the Battle of Armageddon which is the same described by the Prophet Ezekiel in Chapter 38 and 39, the last war of humanity. But it would also cause the Jews to finally accept Jesus as their savior (Matt 23:39; Zech 12:10-11; Rom 11:25, 26). After all this occurred, Jesus would return in glory and will establish God's kingdom -- and a thousand-year reign of peace (Rev 20:6; Zech 14:2, 3, 4, 8, 9, 12). And it would begin in Jerusalem.

Thus understand that the rebuilding of the Third New Temple has profound prophetic significance with the appearance of the antichrist and the forming of the pagan armies to invade Israel in the coming Battle of Gog and Magog. The scriptures make it clear that just before Christ returns, the Third Temple of God must stand once more on its original location on the Temple Mount.

But the question is, is the present day Temple Mount, the original temple location in the past?

Jesus warned nearly two thousand years ago to His disciples of the coming destruction of the temple saying, "not one stone of the temple would be left on top of another". Matthew 24:1-2 shows it all in details,“Then Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and His disciples came to Him for to shew (show) Him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said to 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’.” Was Jesus wrong in His prophesying that not one stone would remain standing?, as we see that there are massive stone blocks by the thousands set in the wall supporting the Temple Mount platform. By no means, because we see from the Bible that the city of David was Zion where the Temple had been built in the past and it is no where near the supposed Zion where the Dome of Rock is situated (2 Samuel 5:7; Joel 3:17; Joel 2:1; 2 Chronicles 32:30; 2 Chronicles 3:1). This place in the city of David was where Jesus walked, and it contains the Pool of Siloam, where Jesus told a blind man to wash and be healed (John 9: 1-11). According to the Old Testament prophet Micah, what Jesus told was exactly right, the Scripture reveals, "Zion shall be plowed like a field, Jerusalem shall become heaps of ruins, and the mountain of the temple like the bare hills of the forest." (Mic 3:12). The Book of Revelation says the End Times will come when Jews will build a new Temple in this exact spot of bare hills of the forest that the antichrist will desecrate (Rev 13:6, 5; 1 Kings 1:38; 8:1, 62; Ezek 44:6, 7, 8, 9; Acts 21:26-36). God has promised to reveal all that is hidden in His time when the seal of Daniel will be broken at the "time of the end" (Dan 12:4, 5-13), and I believe that the time of the end is now (Luke 8:17).






The prime real estate space contested until recently was the 36-acre Temple Mount, on which sits the Dome of the Rock, or Mosque of Omar, which has occupied the spot since around 692 A.D., following the Muslim conquest in 638 A.D, the Bible itself in several places clearly says that both temples were erected in the City of David or Zion, which is a far smaller, 12-acre area now being excavated about 600 feet south of the Temple Mount in the City of David, Jerusalem Walls National Park. The Bible tells me that the temple of the God of Israel have to be in the city of David and not anywhere else as the world thinks (2 Sam 5:7; Joel 2:1; 3:17; 3:21; Psa 2:6; 9:11; 20:2; 65:1, 4; 102:16, 19; 132:8, 13; Isa 2:3; Isa 24:23; 66:20; 1 Chron 3:1).

..........................................................2 Sam 5:7 - Zion = City of David

........................................Joel 2:1 - Zion = My holy mountain = temple

.......................................Joel 3:17 - Zion = My holy mountain = temple

.................................Joel 3:21 - Zion = where the Lord dwells = temple

.....................Psalm 2:6 - Zion = My holy hill = Christ reigning = temple

..............................Psalm 9:11 - Zion = where the Lord dwells = temple

................................Psalm 20:2 - Zion = from sanctuary = from temple

..............................................Psalm 65:1, 4 - Zion = Your holy temple

...............Psalm 102:16, 19 - Zion = sanctuary = City of David = temple

.......Psalm 132:8, 13 - Zion = ark resting place = City of David = temple

..........Isaiah 2:3 - Zion = mountain of the Lord = house of God = temple

................Isaiah 24:23 - Zion = Lord of hosrs reigning = place of temple

....Isaiah 66:20 - Zion = My holy mountain = house of the Lord = temple

.............1 Chronicles 3:1 - Zion = Jebusite city = City of David = temple

Here is a thought provoking article with the title, 'Where in Jerusalem will the third Temple of God be built before Christ returns?' which explains further in depth regarding this truth about the Third Temple's building location.

So as we come to know from the Bible that the city of David is a different area from the Dome of the Rock, so it does not have to be removed for a new Temple to rise. The time for the building of the third temple is ready to begin....NEXT.


Major Events to Happen Next:


1. Moving Israel's Capital To Jerusalem - DONE!

Moving the capital from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem by Trump, is not a natural thing that has occurred just like that, instead it is a undeniable fact that Israel which has been operating for 70 years with Jerusalem as its center of government, but for 70 years no country everywhere around the world were willing to move its embassy to Jerusalem, and that includes the United States of America which has stood as a staunchest faithful ally of the nation of Israel from the day it was born.

But for the first time in the history, on Dec 6 2017 President Trump supernaturally led by a campaign promise, was truthful enough to fulfill it in the first year of his presidency itself. The numbers seven and seventy both have special meanings in the Bible.

God had completed his task of all creation in Six days and declared it as complete in His eyes by the seventh day. From this God established the week which is completed on Saturday and is a day of rest (Gen 1:31; 2:1-3). The Israelites spent 70 years in captivity of Babylon away from God's Holy city in Jerusalem (Jer 29:10-14).

We also know from the prophecy of
Dan 9:24, "Seventy weeks are determined for your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sins, to make reconciliation for iniquity, to bring everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy, and to anoint the Most Holy." The day of anointing the Most Holy Place of the rebuilt temple had happened after the end of seventy years in the Holy City of Jerusalem, so does it will be in our times as Jerusalem had come back in to the hands of Israel after 70 years of captivity in the hands of the Gentiles, who through United Nations controlled it without recognizing it as the capital city of Israel, the Third Temple with the most Holy Place will be rebuilt on the original temple site of Solomon's Temple just like in days past. The Cyrus decree that has gone to rebuilt the temple, will once again go through the President Trump most probably, as he carries the same anointing, and thus the Third Temple will be built by the people of God in our generation to make it as the most active and happening place in the entire world, and thus the Most Holy place of the temple will be anointed and reopened before the world (Jer 29:10-14). Once this come in to existence, due to the chaos that will come in all the world due to this one event will start a worldwide war which might cause much destruction. This will be the starting of the end time when the covenant by the prince of the Roman people will ratify and confirm with the world nations for one week which is 7 years to bring peace and safety (Dan 9:26, 27; 1 Thess 5:1-11; John 5:43; Isa 28:15).

In
Luke 21:24, Jesus speaks of future events, including the destruction of Jerusalem which happened 2000 years ago and His return at the time of the end which we are nearing to (Matt 24:30-31). He says that “Jerusalem will be trampled underfoot by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled” (ESV). A similar phrase is found in Romans 11:25, which says, “A partial hardening has come upon Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in” (ESV). Does the Bible tell us what the phrase “times of the Gentiles” means?

Yes it refers to the Gentile rulers of the world who will rule the city of Jerusalem and the people of Israel till the time of the end
(Dan 2:31–45; 7:1–27; 8:1–26), in details, “times” of these Gentile rulers would be all the years from the Babylonian Empire of Nebuchadnezzar to the time of Antichrist rule in all the world which will end during the battle of Armageddon before the glorious return of Christ to establish His kingdom. The Day of the Lord will be “a time of doom for the nations” (Ezek 30:3). In the book of Revelation, we find similar references to the time of Gentile dominion ending with the return of Christ (Rev 11:2). So the armies of the last and the final Gentile Beast kingdom of Antichrist are shown to be destroyed by the Lord in Revelation 19:17–19, just before the millennial reign of Christ is initiated which will be a pure theocracy and the first Kingdom of God on earth.

In other words, according to Jesus how long will Jerusalem will really be trampled underfoot by man's rule when God made by nature the city of Jerusalem to be the city of the Great King Jesus who is the only one who is worthy to sit in it and rule the whole world
(Matt 5:35)? Thus we know that only Christ coming to the earth and ruling the whole world from Jerusalem will only fulfill the will of God for it (Rev 20:4; Zech 14:2, 3-4, 5, 8, 9, 11, 12, 16). So only at Christ Second Coming to the earth, He will make Gentile man's rule over Jerusalem which causes it to be trampled by them to be stopped forever and ever.

From the Bible further we come to understand that, even though President Trump has declared Jerusalem to be the capital of the nation of Israel, yet the nations of the world will debate over its sovereignty and will try to divide it further in to two pieces, and it will be the cause of uproar and unrest and reeling under the drunkenness of antisemitism in all the nations of the world
(Zech 12:2, 3). Jerusalem supernaturally will be made an immovable rock by the Lord of Hosts (1 Sam 1:3). All the nations will gather against it to try to move it, but they will only hurt themselves. In other words, whether it is Pope's Vatican or intimidation of the intifada of all the Muslim nations of the world or the United Nations or any one else, whoever will try to move the boundary of the city of Jerusalem will only hurt themselves at the end of it all, because Jerusalem is actually the city of Jesus who will come to rule over it after the time of the end. All those who come against Jerusalem will have to face the wrath of Jesus, who will seek to destroy all the nations that will come against Jerusalem (Zech 12:9; 14:16, 21).

There is a partial hardening of heart for Israel as described by apostle Paul in Romans 11 since the day Christ died and chose the Church which accepted Him, as the royal priest of God and declared it as a nation of the people of God instead of Israel which has rejected their Lord and Master in their blindness
(Matt 21:42, 43, 44; 1 Peter 2:5, 9, 10; Acts 2:36; 3:13, 14, 15; 4:10-11; 7:51-53; Rom 11:25), but it doesn’t preclude individual Jews from being saved, but it prevents the nation from accepting Christ as Messiah until His plans are finished (Zech 12:10-11; 13:6, 9).

God will restore the entire nation of Israel in a single day, and they will come to faith in Him once again, ending
“the times of the Gentiles” and making Jerusalem become the capital city of the whole world from which the Great King Jesus will rule the earth and its inhabitants (Isaiah 17:7; 62:11–12; Romans 11:26).



2. Building Of The Third Temple In Jerusalem - ON THE WAY!


Coming to the building of the Third Temple in Jerusalem, we know that God raise a Cyrus to build the temple again when the Second Temple was rebuilt according to the will of God. Cyrus did not know God initially, yet God appointed him and used his life for a specific purpose of the rebuilding of his Jerusalem temple
(Isa 44:28; Ezra 1:2).

Nearly 150 years before Cyrus was born, the prophet Isaiah foretold his birth, his name, and the tasks that the Creator God had predetermined for him to accomplish. The Bible records that certain people are foreordained to be born and carry out specific tasks for God during their lifetime and a few of these individuals are even named before their birth. Cyrus the Great was one of these individuals whom God had predestined to play a pivotal roll in his awesome plan for humanity.

King Cyrus was an extremely important person, because God destroyed the Babylonian empire through him, and brought a close to a seventy-year punishment of the Jews that God imposed on them for their rebellion against him. Also through King Cyrus, God set into motion his seventy-week prophecy that fixed the year for the Messiah's death and resurrection, and reveals the sequence of events and dates for the Messiah's return which will bring to an end human rule of the earth, and usher in the government of God to rule over the entire earth.

The Jewish Temple Mount movement are excited over the recent election of Donald Trump. They know if there is any modern political leader with the guts and determination to stand behind such a project as the building of the Third Great Temple, it could be President Trump. A number of Christian leaders also.., have been prophetically comparing Trump to the Biblical King Cyrus, not many have raised the point that a primary part of Cyrus’ divine calling was to order the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem. If President Trump really has a similar calling to King Cyrus, could it be that God would use this real estate developer turned President to facilitate the greatest property development of modern time – the rebuilding of the Temple? I do not really know, but there is really a possibility of this great rebuilding of the Third temple by him.

Many Christians tend to link the rebuilding of the Temple not with a Cyrus but rather with the anti-Christ himself, so they say that whoever builds the Temple will be the Antichrist.

The Scriptures appear clear that the coming anti-Christ will defile the temple by triggering the abomination which leads to desolation
(Matt 24:15-16; 2 Thess 2:3, 4), but who will build the temple has not been pointed out in the Scripture, so it could be President Trump who could start the rebuilding of the Third Temple, and God could really use him as his chosen vessel to do it. From the Scripture we find out that the whole Third Temple might be built by someone, but surely when the the chaos descends upon the whole world about the sovereignty of Jerusalem as to who will keep it as the undivided eternal capital, then Israel as a nation will contend with the world, and then these nations of the world at that time will begin to see and realize how powerful the nation of Israel has become from the time they have accepted Jerusalem as its capital ever since June 7, 1967 when IDF paratroopers advanced through the Old City toward the Temple Mount and the Western Wall, bringing Jerusalem’s holiest site under Jewish control for the first time in 2000 years, to the present time when USA recognized it officially as the capital of the nation of Israel on Dec 6 2017, and after this in to the future time. We know right now how the nation of Israel has become militarily powerful already like a fire pan in the wood pile, like a fiery torch to the sheaves to devour all the surrounding peoples on the left and the right who oppose it and want to destroy it (Zech 12:6, 3), so at that time in the midst of all peacelessness in all the world, then shall the bloody deceiver Antichrist will appear who will be the man of sin and a son of Perdition (Psa 5:6; 2 Thess. 2:3), "And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator.” (Dan 9:27, ESV).

So we as believers in Christ Jesus, when we see the Temple being built whether by the president Trump or anybody else, it doesn't matter to us as long as we expect to look on for the secret coming of our Lord Jesus to take away us all who are His Bride and the Church
(Luke 21:34, 35, 36; John 14:1-4; 1 Thess 4:14-18). The Church and the people of God on earth are those who are restraining along with the Holy Spirit, the appearance of Antichrist from appearing to the whole world as a false messiah of their lives (2 Thess 2:6, 7, 9-12). As Christians, to live holy to the Lord is mandatory and not a option in order to take heed to ourselves and keep us from being deceived by the world of sin in these end time of great deception (1 John 3:2, 3; Jam 4:8-10; Tit 2:13-14; Matt 24:4). The Church is longing for the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Tim 4:8; Tit 2:13), so we need not bother ourselves to know who the exact Antichrist is, but that also the Lord will reveal to us at the right time to keep us from being deceived if we receive the love of the truth so that we might be saved, and therefore believe in the truth of the Word of God and rejoice in His righteousness (Php 3:14, 15; 2 Thess 2:10, 12, 9, 11).

We can almost hear the Trumpet sound of the rapture already! Wake up from spiritual slumber and look for His Secret Coming of the Rapture!!!



3. Rapture Of The Church And The Emergence Of The New Heaven And The New Earth As Its Residence - TO HAPPEN SOON!


The rapture is not a vain imagination of the theologians, it is rather a Biblical doctrine that Christ taught in which He admonishes all the believers to be ever ready for His imminent coming.

Here is the Scripture that Christ Jesus uttered through His very own mouth,
"3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know." (John 14:3-4). Here in the above verses Christ spoke to all the believes that He is going to heaven to prepare a place for all of us believers, when it is ready, He will come and take us all away to Himself so that we can all be with Him in the palaces which are being built for us all in the new earth and new heaven where the we all will reside with Jesus for eternity ahead.

Christ Himself said that He is returning back to His Heavenly Father in the New Jerusalem
(John 16:28), and he went back after His resurrection visibly before all the disciples and as they were gazing in to the skies, the angels suddenly appeared to the disciples and told them that the way Jesus is taken up, He will in like manner return back as they saw Him go in to heaven (Acts 1:10-11). This message of angels is a encouragement to the disciples, that when Jesus will come back, He will take them all back to heaven in the same manner he went up in His glorious supernatural body, as they too will rise up in their glorious bodies to go on to be with the Lord Jesus forever and ever. But spiritually we are already seated with Him in the heavenly places as God has already lifted us along with Jesus to honor us (Eph 2:5-6; 1:20).

Paul the apostle confirmed the doctrine of rapture that Jesus spoke by saying,
"13 But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. 15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. 16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words."(1 Thess 4:13-18).

Many believers who do not understand the doctrine of rapture by being ignorant, they tend to sorrow very much about the loss of the brethren when they die and thus become comfortless in their lives without hope. So apostle Paul reminds about a particular event in the above Scriptures where He tells that those who have died in Christ will rise first in their glorious new eternal bodies, and those who are alive at that time of Christ's secret coming will be snatched away along with the risen believers in their glorious bodies, so from that time on wards we shall always be with the Lord Jesus Christ. Because it is a secret coming and imminent, Christ told all the believer to watch therefore and pray always so that they may be counted worthy to escape all these things of tribulation that are going to come on earth after the rapture of the Church
(Luke 21:36; Rev 3:10; 2 Thess 1:6-7; 1 Thess 1:10).

Then immediately after rapture, believers,
" 10 ....must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. 11 Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are well known to God, and I also trust are well known in your consciences."(2 Cor 5:10-11). For every believer, there will be reward ceremony that will happen through Christ rewarding each one according to their works they have done in their earthly lives for Him after their salvation (Rev 22:12). This will take place once the Church will occupy the new heaven and new earth, when the New Jerusalem will be brought down to rest in the midst of it which is called by apostle John as the "marriage of the Lamb' (Rev 19:6-7, 8). The Lord had in his mind the same imagery of a marriage when He prepared the New Jerusalem as like a bride for the husband which is the new heaven and new earth (Rev 21:1-2).

One of the most important thing regarding rapture is, believers of the Church being with God forever enjoying the presence and the glory of God forever, and walking the streets of Gold..., eating the fruit of the tree of life will not happen after a thousand years of Christ rule on earth, but rather it will happen right after the rapture of the Church because we see the believers
"bringing glory and the honor of the nations [on the present earth] in to it" (Rev 21:26). If there were no opportunity on the present old earth for believers to rule over the nations, as Christ has already promised in many places of the New Testament (Luke 19:17, 19; Rev 2:26), why should someone bring in the glory and honor of the nations to New Jerusalem? Then we see "the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations" (Rev 22:2). We know that new heaven and new earth is a perfect place of God and it needs no healing, as God Himself will be with the believers and be their God, and "He 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.” (Rev 21:3-4), so unless the believers take these leaves of the tree in the New Jerusalem, to the present earth for the healing of the nations, there is no need for any healing at all in the New Heaven and New Earth, so we know that the residence of the Church will be in the New Heaven and New Earth, but the place of their service for a thousand years along with Jesus will be on the earth over all the nations of the earth. Apostle Peter confirms this truth of the Word of God and says that we as the Church look forward to the New Heaven and New Earth after the rapture (2 Peter 3:11-13; Isa 65:17, 24), rather than a thousand years after this event which is wrong (2 Peter 3:10; Heb 1:10-12; Isa 34:4). All the prophecies are not sequentially or chronologically given always, but rather it is jumbled up for us to separate it by studying it deeply and thoughtfully. So let us properly study the Word of God and show ourselves approved to the Lord, so that we will be able to consistently divide it rightly for all to be blessed with the right doctrine which will lead to righteousness and holy living (2 Tim 2:15; 1 Peter 1:15; 2 Peter 3:16-17).



4. The Great Tribulation


The Great Tribulation has been told by Jesus as a worldwide Tribulation that is coming immediately after the rapture of the Church upon the whole wide world, where the evil work of Antichrist will happen, after which the wrath of God will be let loose on all those who follow Antichrist and do not obey God
(Matt 24:21-22; Ezek 20:33-38; Rev 3:10; Rom 5:9; Mark 13:18-19, 20; Rev 16:2, 8-9, 10-11). It is a specific period of time that may start any time after Mid Point of Daniel's 70th week which is know as the abomination of desolation in which Antichrist will stop the sacrifices and offerings in the Third Temple, and this Tribulation will end anytime before war of Armageddon. The Lord has promised to shorten the days of the Great Tribulation or else He Himself says that no flesh will be left alive on the earth due to the unprecedented severity of the Great Tribulation (Mark 13:20). To read in details regarding the Great Tribulation and have better understanding regarding this, read this following article titled, 'When Will The End Time Tribulation Start?'



5. The Physical Manifestation Of The Anti-Christ


Once the third temple of the Jews comes up in Jerusalem, the sacrifices and offerings will continue as done before in the second and the first Temple. At this time, many nations of the world will face chaos because of Jerusalem being the capital of the nation of Israel, and will try to divide it between Israelite's and Palestinians. At this time a insidious man of peace will rise up and make a peace covenant with all the nations for 7 years regarding Jerusalem and all world will hear him. But around the exact time of three and half years of the peace treaty
(Dan 9:27), he will break the covenant and will come in to the temple and put a stop to the sacrifices and offerings made there by the priests. Then he will sit inside the temple as the so-called messiah of the world and will declare himself as god (2 Thess 2:3-4). He will speak blasphemous thing against God and will deceive people who are not saved by Jesus with all power, signs and lying wonder, and will make the people to take the seal or a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, which is the name of the beast of Antichrist or the 666 which is the number of his name (2 Thess 2:8-12; Rev 13:16, 17-18).

All the saved Tribulation saints, this evil man of Antichrist will kill when they will be stand firm in faith and choose not to worship the image of the beast
(Rev 13:15), he will kill them by the sword (Rev 13:10).

But soon as his evil reign of three and a half years will end
(Rev 13:5), he will gather all nations and will come against Jerusalem and he will be killed by Jesus Christ finally in the war of Armageddon (Rev 19:20-21).



6. The 2 Prophets And Their Ministry.


The Bible reveals that two prophets will rise up for three and half years in Jerusalem and will prophecy against the evil of Antichrist. These will be none other than Enoch and Elijah, because they were the only one to have not died at all in this life. When the Antichrist or anyone related to him will try to harm them, they will prophecy against them which will cause all kinds of plague to come, and for the wrath of God to be released upon the Antichrist and his followers which will torment them
(Rev 11:1-6). Then finally because of the sovereign will, the beast will finally overcome these two prophets and will kill them after three and half years (Rev 11:7). Their dead bodies will lie in the city of Jerusalem for three and half days, all the unsaved will rejoice in all the world and celebrate it as they will see their dead bodies live on every mobile TV in their hands, and therefore due to excitement of the event they will not allow their dead bodies to be put in to graves (Rev 11:8-9). The reason all the unsaved will celebrate, rejoice over them to make merry, and send gifts to one another along with Antichrist is because, these two prophets would have tormented those who dwelt on the earth for worshiping the dragon Satan openly, during the Antichrist reign for three and half years during which they too will minister through their prophetic ministry on earth (Rev 11:10; 13:5, 4; 12:9).

Finally, after three and half days, suddenly the breath of life from God will enter in to them, they will then stand on their feet, and as a result, great fear will fall on those who will see them through live Mobile TV and through other Media outlets in all the world
(Rev 11:11).

Then God will call these two prophets to come to heaven, after which they will ascend to heaven in a cloud, and all their enemies on earth will see them. In the same hour, there will come a great earthquake, and suddenly one tenth of the city of Jerusalem will fall completely. Exactly seven thousand people will die because of this earthquake, and the rest of those who saw it and remain alive will be afraid and give glory to the God of heaven for his marvelous power over the earth dwellers
(Rev 11:12-13). To know in details about the ministry of these two Old Testament prophets, read my article titled 'When Will The Two Old Testament Prophets Return Back To Earth?'.



7. The War Of Armageddon.


The Bible describes Armageddon as the place where all nations, kings and the whole wide world will be gathered supernaturally by the spirits of demons who performs signs, to do battle against God Almighty and destroy the city of the Great King Jesus which He has promised to defend and gain control over the whole world to rule it for a thousand years
(Rev 16:14-16). Jesus has warned all believers to watch spiritually and keep their garments of salvation clean before God, so that when Jesus arrives on the earth, they should not be found naked spiritually, and all see the shame of their lives when He will send all the Antichrist followers to death and Hades prison to wait for eternal judgment and hell fire. In other words, God wants all the lukewarm people to really get saved and endure to the end or else Jesus is saying that they will be deceived to join the army of Antichrist and his followers even when they know the truth mentally without letting it be known in their heart which is true salvation (Rev 16:15; Matt 24:13; Rom 10:9-10, 8; 1 Thess 2:13; 2 Thess 2:9-10; Rev 13:8).

In the final battle of the ages which will take place in Armageddon
[i.e. The Meggido Valley which is present just outside of of Jerusalem], the heavenly army of saints will come along with Jesus Christ as the captain of the army from heaven, and the Lord of hosts who will be the KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS for the next thousand years (Rev 19:11-16, 7-8; Zech 14:1, 2, 3-4, 5, 8, 9, 12, 15; 1 Sam 1:3). Those saints from the marriage of the Lamb will then be chosen for the marriage supper of the Lamb which will be in the battle of Armageddon as the chosen worthy warriors of Jesus Christ (Rev 19:7, 9, 17; 2 Tim 2:11-12; Rev 14:1-5; Zech 14:3, 4, 5).

To learn more deeply regarding the subject of Armageddon, please do read my article titled as, '50 Reasons Why Ezekiel 38-39 is the Battle of Armageddon'.

Finally as the army of Antichrist will come to face the army of the Lord of Hosts, in a moment of time with a word of His mouth, He will slay all those enemies of His in to pieces for all the birds of the air to eat their flesh
(Rev 19:17-18). The beast of Antichrist along with his evil false prophet will be captured and cast directly alive in to the lake of fire burning with brimstone (Rev 19:19, 20-21). And all the birds of the air will be filled with their flesh (Rev 19:21). Praise the Lord!



8. The 1000 Years Millennial Reign Of Christ With The Saints

After Armageddon, the apostle John reveals, that Satan will be bound for a thousand years in the bottomless pit, after which he will be released for a little while and forever will be cast in to the lake of fire after the judgment pronounced upon him by the saints of the army of the Lord
(Rev 20:1-3; 1 Cor 6:3; Daniel 7:26-27). One angel from heaven will be enough when they are actually given the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain of authority from God to bind Satan, the same angel will cause it all to happen and fulfill exactly all that has been pre-determined by God.

But then we see Jesus will enter in to judgment on earth to separate the sheep believers from the goat unbelievers, and will send all the unbelievers in to everlasting punishment. You can read the Judgment of the nations by reading the following article of mine titled, 'God's Judgment on Nations, When Will It Happen?'

When Christ will come again to earth to fight against Antichrist, there will be the first resurrection of the righteous Tribulation saints who had died after the rapture of the Church
(1 Cor 15:50-58; Matt 24:29-30, 31; Mark 13:27; Isa 11:11-12), those who partake in this, the second death will have no more power over their lives because Jesus will supply them with a eternal life and a glorious body to reign as the priest of God and Christ for a thousand years to reign with him in Jerusalem in the Millennial Temple which Jesus will rebuild (Rev 20:4-6; Jeremiah 33:18, 15; Acts 15:16; Amos 9:11-12). We should understand that the Second Coming resurrection of the Tribulation saints is totally different from the rapture resurrection of the Church saints. Read the following two articles with titles, 'The Revelation of Jesus Christ - Part 1' and '5 Reasons Why First Corinthians Fifteenth Chapter Speaks About Second Coming' for better understanding of the above subject of Rapture and Second Coming resurrection.



9. Total Destruction Of This Sinful World, And Satan & His Kingdom


After the end of the Millennial rule of Jesus Christ and his saints on the earth, Satan will be let loose one final time for all the sinful humanity to be tested, but then Satan will go and convince all the unsaved on the earth even after they have enjoyed the goodness of the Messiah for hundreds of years, they will ungratefully and foolishly think that they can destroy Jerusalem with all the saints in it who are serving Jesus in their supernatural glorious bodies. Then they will go and surround the whole of the city of God, but then this time the fire of God from heaven will descend and will burn all of them away, so that immediately after that they will rise up to face the White Throne Judgment of Jesus and will all be sent to hell fire eternally along with Satan
(Rev 20:7-10).

To read more about the purpose of God in the Millennial rule through Jesus Christ, read my following article titled, 'Why Jesus Should Reign On Earth For A Thousand Years?'.

Thus the whole old earth and old heaven will be burnt with fire and become vapor because of all the sin that has happened in it
(2 Peter 3:10, 11, 12).



10. Final Judgement Of The Dead... Sinners (Unsaved) Who Spend Eternity In Hell Fire With Gnashing Of Teeth In Worms That Never Dies Forever And Ever....


The final judgment for all the unsaved will happen only at the White Throne judgment somewhere in the outer heavens as the old heaven and earth will be by then completely burnt and will become vapor, in which they will be judged by Jesus according to their works, and they will all rise up in their sinful bodies and will thereafter be punished for it in various degrees
(Luke 12:46, 47-48), and will be forever cast in to the eternal lake of fire.

So this will be the judgment of all the unsaved from the time of the first Adam to the end of Millennial rule of Jesus
(Rev 20:11-15). Even the spirit of Death and Hades prison which held the spirit and soul of these unsaved people until then will also be cast in to the same lake of fire (Matt 10:28; Rev 21:8, 27; 22;15, 19).

You can read in details about Hell in the following article of mine titled, 'Is Hell The Grave?'

Much Blessings....
