Future Events Of This World
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice
of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise
first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with
them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the
Lord. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
The Anti-christ Comes to Power After the Rapture
2 Thessalonians 2:7-10
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth
(hinders)will let (hinder,until he be taken out of the way. 8 And then shall that
Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth,
and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 Even him, whose coming
is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And
with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they
received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. There is a seven
year period of the Tribulation between the Rapture and the
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon
him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make
war. 12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns;
and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13 And he was
clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses,
clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp
sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a
rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of
Almighty God. 16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written,
KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
Satan is bound and cast into the bottomless pit for
a thousand years.
1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless
pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old
serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 3 And
cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that
he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled:
and after that he must be loosed a little season.
The Redeemed reign with Christ on Earth for one
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto
them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus,
and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his
image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands;
and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the
dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first
Resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection:
on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of
Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
Satan is released from the pit and is finally
once and for all defeated.
7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his
prison, 8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters
of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of
whom is as the sand of the sea. 9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth,
and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came
down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. 10 And the devil that
deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and
the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
The second resurrection and the Great White Throne Judgement
If you are truly Born Again of the Spirit of God you will never be at this judgement!
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the
earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12 And
I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened:
and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged
out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered
up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to
their works. 14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the
second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was
cast into the lake of fire.
The New Heaven and New Earth
1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first
earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 2 And I John saw the holy
city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride
adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying,
Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they
shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 4 And
God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death,
neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former
things are passed away.
The description of the New Heaven and Earth continues to the end of chapter 21
and on into chapter 22.
