Sequence of Events

December 11th, 2016     

Confused about the sequence of events in the end times?

Here is a rough outline of what will happen (and some things that have already happened).

The Dark Ages (538-1798)

This is where the antichrist (Roman Catholic Church) tortured and killed at least 50 million Christians during the Dark Ages.

In prophecy:

  • A day equals 1 year
  • A month is 30 days
  • A “time” is 360 days

The following phrases all refer to the same time period, e.g. 1,260 years from 538 AD to 1798 AD.

  • 1,260 days
  • 42 months = 42 * 30 = 1,260 days
  • time, times, and half a time = 360 + 720 + 180 = 1,260 days

The Two Witnesses (1793-1797)

Most people think the two witnesses are Moses and Elijah, however that doesn’t make any sense. Both Moses and Elijah already have their spiritual bodies, so they can’t lie dead on the streets for 3.5 days (3.5 years). And would God really let his most precious servants rot on the streets like that?

The term “Moses and Elijah” is another way of saying “the Law and the Prophets” which refers to scripture. Moses represents the Law, and Elijah represents the Prophets. This is an important clue as to understanding who/what the two witnesses are.

The two witnesses refer to the Old and the New Testament.

Ellen White confirms this:

The two witnesses represent the Scriptures of the Old and the New Testament.
– Ellen White, The Great Controversy, p. 267

The story of the two witnesses is a reference to the French Revolution, and took place from 1793 AD to 1797 AD.

For more information please read Revelation 11.

The Latter Rain

The latter rain refers to the outpouring of the Holy Spirit (rain) in the last days.

The timing has to be just right.

Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.
– James 5:8-9 (NKJV)

God will pour out His Spirit on all flesh during the latter rain.

And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come:
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

– Acts 2:17-21

God will reveal Himself in the Latter Rain, and He will explain the importance of keeping the True Sabbath. Once everyone understands the Sabbath issue, Sundaykeeping will turn into the Mark of the Beast (see below for more information on that).

For more information, please read The Latter Rain.

The 144,000

The 144,000 will pave the way for Jesus’ Second Coming.

The end time message will center around keeping the Commandments of God, and in particular that of the fourth (Sabbath) Commandment.

The Sabbath is God’s Seal, whereas Sunday is Satan’s Mark. Both are a sign of who you worship.

For more information please read A Line in the Sand.

Mark of the Beast

We will all go through great tribulation (no rapture or anything like that).

The Illuminati use the tactic of “order from chaos”. They create the chaos, and then present the solution. By accepting their “solution” you will end up with less freedom, etc.

If they were to tank the global economy (they own the banks, so this is not too hard to do), it would be a great opportunity to introduce the New World Order. I suspect that once we have had enough of the chaos, we’ll sign up for just about anything.

Part of the “solution” will be the concept of Sunday keeping (Satan’s Mark).

Those who sign up with the New World Order will be able to “buy and sell”, whereas those who do not will have to rely on God to provide (and He will).

Eventually the Sunday Law will have a death decree.

This is the ultimate choice. Life or death.

For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
– Matthew 16:25

Great tribulation indeed.

For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
– Matthew 24:21

Please understand that the mark of the beast is about who you worship. The New World Order is just a tool to persuade you to follow satan.

If you worship on Sunday, you will receive the mark in your forehead (thoughts). If you observe Sunday, you will receive the mark in your right hand (deeds).

At the heart of it, it comes down to this:

If ye love me, keep my commandments.
– John 14:15

And that includes Sabbath.

Second Coming

At last, our Saviour returns to claim those that are His.

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: 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.
– 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

This is the first resurrection.

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.
– Revelation 20:6

Note that we will be caught up with Jesus in the air. Jesus will not set foot on this Earth.

God’s Wrath

God will pour out the seven plagues on the wicked (those that chose satan).

The 1,000 years

Earth is completely in ruins, and all the wicked are dead.

The 1,000 years take place in New Jerusalem where God will open the books of life, and we will be given the opportunity to question God’s judgment. No one will disagree with God however. God has done everything He could to try and save our loved ones (that are missing).

Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
– 1 Corinthians 6:2

This whole process will take 1,000 years.

Lake of Fire

Now the second resurrection (of the wicked) will take place.

They will be read their sentence, and even the wicked will agree with the judgment.

That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
– Philippians 2:10-11

They will spend the last moments of their lives in a lake of fire. This is the second death, from which there is no coming back.

God will repay each person according to what they have done.
– Romans 2:6 (NIV)

God’s Eternal Kingdom

God will dry our tears, and we shall be like children in God’s Kingdom.

Ron DiCianni

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
– Romans 8:18 (NKJV)
