There is only one place in the Bible which can help us to put all Bible prophecies in chronological order. It is chapter 12 of Revelation (in details on page 11). The chapter summarizes Bible prophecies of the past and future in its chronological order.
6 tells that Christian church was under persecution during 1260 prophetical
years (from 606 to 1849 AD -
see prophecy about the little horn).
Thus, Jesus had began to open the seals of the book (v.12)
Thus, Jesus had began to open the seals of the book (v.12) from 1850.
1-st seal (white horse - ideology) – 1850 – New Age Movement - new doctrines disguised under Christianity or which
had replaced it, such as: Spiritism, evolution, theosophy, Mormons teachings and
ctr.; technical revolution, that gave people false illusion that people
can live without God
and themselves can become gods.
The opening of the 6-th seal will be the greatest world disaster ever: “every mountain and island were moved out of their places;…every slave and every free man” will see it (Rev.6:14,15). This will be the passing of the Planet-X.
Then the righteous will be sealed by God. When 7-th seal will be broken, the antichrist will announce himself as God, and God's power over the earth will be removed. From catastrophic events only those who will have His seal will be protected, to protect rest of the people God will not have the right. Those who will have His seal can be killed only by antichrist's servants.
Daniel's and John's prophecies clearly
speak that everything is already prepared for antiChrist government (The
image, beasts of Daniel and "Revelation"
Beasts of "Revelation"
Today we already have this beast with 7 heads, it is NATO. Soon after Russia (Bear) will be included to NATO, the power will pass to the global government. 10 horns/persons (perhaps, UN Security Council ) will receive crowns and will manage the destiny of the planet. The antichrist will be among them. The Ultimate governing body besides UN can be some another union, that can be created after the opening of the 6-th seal.
Prostitute Babylon (Vatican) already sits on the beast - NATO (in all 27
Christian countries the Catholic church has most influence). When 10 horns will receive authority, they will burn out
Vatican (out-of-date religious center), and will transfer their authority to the
rule for 7 years. The beginning of his 7-year government will be marked by the
peace treaty that he will manage to make with Arab nations. That will
give him world popularity, then after the opening of the 6-th seal - the
crossing of the planet X- the world power will be given to the 10 horns
Council, a controlling organ of NATO or some other new union), and "the world famous
peacemaker" antichrist will be in there also. After the opening of the 7
seal 10 horns will give complete power to the antichrist and he will
proclaim himself god. From occupation of Jerusalem, for 3,5 years, he
will have absolute universal power (The
70 weeks prophecy ). When he will receive complete control, angels will begin to blow into the trumpets
(Trumpets of “Revelation”).
the first trumpet Jerusalem, which has to become the new religious world center,
will be surrounded by armies of the antichrist.
We see that Daniel, Mathew, Mark, Luke, and Ezekiel were talking about the same event.
the occupation of Jerusalem or from the first trumpet the great tribulation of
Christians will start. “great
tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no,
nor ever shall be”
(Mat.24:21, Mark 13:19, Dan.12:1).
That means 3,5 years
of the great power of antichrist will start from the first trumpet.
years of antichrist’s full power it is:
“a time, and times, and half a time”
before the resurrection of the dead (Dan.12:7), time of persecution of the
church (Rev.12:14), time of the antichrist -“half
of the week” (Dan.9:27),
time of occupation of Jerusalem “forty and two months” (Rev.13:5), time of two prophets “1260 days” (Rev.11:3).
Thus, after the occupation of Jerusalem the antichrist will sit in the temple as god. He will have all the power over the world for 3,5 years and he will make all people to receive his mark, “taking his seat in the temple of God , proclaiming that he himself is God” (2Thes.2:4)
The parallelism of trumpets and bowls of Revelation allows us to conclude that some people will have mark (Seal of God and Mark of the Beast The Book of Life ) of the beast already at the sounding of the first trumpet. Compare with Rev.16:2 “The first angel went and poured out his bowl on the land, and ugly and painful sores broke out on the people who had the mark of the beast and worshiped his image”.
In the beginning of his government Antichrist will make 7-year's ( "for one week " Dan. 9:27) the tripartite peace treaty between the Christians, whom he will represent, Jews and Muslims. The treaty will restore peace in the Middle East, and at that time the temple in Jerusalem will be built. But in 3,5 years (" in the middle of the week") he will break the treaty with the Jews and will take over Jerusalem. The treaty with Muslims will be lasting till it's end. 7 years later Muslims will attack Antichrist in hope to take over Jerusalem, which (The Temple Mount) is second (after the Kaaba at Mecca) holiest site in Islam.
the 6-th trumpet the big war will take place in the valley of Megiddo (Har-Mageddon
in Greek - 2Chron.35:22;
Judg.5:19; 2King.23:29) - Armageddon
Gog will surround Jerusalem and God will stop him.
Gog…I will .. cause you to come up from ... the north and will lead you
against the mountains of Israel”
1290 days (Dan.12:11) with the
sounding of the 7-th trumpet Jesus will come (The 7-th trumpet
the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms
of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever....
thou hast taken to
thee thy great power, and hast reigned» (Rev.11:15,17).
the Lord Himself
shall descend from heaven
.. with the
trump of God” (1Thes.4:16) and
saints will be taken to heaven
“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at
the last trump: … the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be
changed” (1Cor.15:52; 1Thes.4:16,17 )
With the seventh trumpet, in 1290 days (Dan.12:11) after the occupation of Jerusalem by antichrist the alive and resurrected saints will be taken to the Kingdom of heaven. That will happen 'In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye".
With the 7-th trumpet Jesus will reign, and the kingdoms of this world will become the kingdoms of God. Hence 7 bowls of wrath can not be poured out after the Second coming. They will be poured out at another time. After the 1000 years.
After the Second coming there no other beasts will be. 3,5 years of power of the beast-antichrist will finish before the 7-th trumpet.
Therefore at the time of the 7 bowls another beast will be in power (Rev.16:10). The Bible says the red beast will govern (After the 6-th bowl of wrath ). And the beast will be Satan himself, who will be released from abyss (the bottomless pit) in 1000 years after the Second coming.
“the beast that thou sawest was (before the Second coming), and is not (was cast into abyss- bottomless pit - Rev.20:2,3) ; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit (after 1000 years- Rev. 20:7), and go into perdition (will be eliminated forever)” (Rev.17:8).
7 bowls of wrath
are “The seven last plagues; for in them the wrath of God is ended”
AMP). “Ended” means: there no the wrath of God will be again, therefore it
can happen only 1000 years after the Second coming.
Mistakes in interpretation of Bible prophecies often have been rooted in misunderstanding of the principle of parallelism in prophecies (Parallelism in prophecies ). Because of the similarity of some events many people perceive them as one. However Bible says that Jerusalem will be attacked 3 times: there will be AntiChrist's attack and Gog's attack before the Second coming, and Gog's attack 1000 years after the Second coming. Disasters will be after sounding of the trumpets before the Second coming, the disasters will be after pouring of the bowls 1000 years after the Second coming. Armageddon will be before the Second coming and 1000 years after that. The beast will be before the Second coming and 1000 years after that. Even the mark of the beast will be repeated in 1000 years.
Today some churches (as Adventists) teach that at the Second coming all the righteous, alive and resurrected, will be taken to heaven, all the wicked will be destroyed, all the earth will be burned up. Others (as Torah Jews) teach, that after the Messiah's coming all the righteous will live on the restored earth. So, who is right? No one.
The Bible says very clearly that glory of saints and of righteous will be different. When Jesus will come only the saints will be resurrected. They will be taken to heaven without Judgment: «He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment» (John 5:24) (In KJ the word “condemnation” was used. However the right word is “judgment”. Here the Greek word “kpicin” was used, which is the same word John used in 5:22 «For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son». The same word was used in Mat.12:18,20,41,42. See word- by-word translation from Greek http://www.scripture4all.org).
These are people who had been justified by Holy Spirit, whom Jesus knows by name. These are His Bride.
Judgment of “the rest of the dead ” (Rev. 20:5): the righteous and the wicked will be after the 1000 years (Rev. 20:11,12). If all the righteous would be taken to the Kingdom of heaven at the Second coming, and after the 1000 years only the wicked ones would be resurrected, that would mean only one thing: the Judgment already would had place at the Second coming. And that is not what the Bible teaches. The Bible says the books of deeds and Book of Life will be open only after the 1000 years.
There in the Kingdom of heaven saints will learn how to be priests of God and kings on the new earth: “Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: … they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years” (Rev.20:6).
is the Bride of Jesus - the New Jerusalem: "new
Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a Bride
adorned for her husband" (Rev.21:1,2). As there is no bride
without groom, the same people can not come into the Kingdom of Heaven
(to be the Bride) without Jesus (groom) BRIDE and GUESTS on
earth will be completely restored
the last battle).. «And,
behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the temple eastward:...(also
Zech.14:8;Joel 3:18) These
The righteous, who will not reach the Kingdom of heaven, will
cleanse the land from all dead bodies and weapons. “And
there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude, and they shall call it the
Valley of Hamon-gog [multitude of
Gog]. For seven months the house of Israel will be
burying them, that they may cleanse the land” Ezek.39:11,12 .
“the LORD my God shall come (the Second coming), and all the saints with thee... And the Lord shall be the King over all the earth... And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem (the righteous) shall even go up (to Jerusalem) from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts (i.e. will live on earth)” (Zech.14:5-7,16).
For the 1000 years among offspring of those righteous the wicked people will appear again (let’s not forget that after the Flood the only righteous Noah family left, but a wickedness appeared among them almost right away after the Flood). After the 1000 years Satan will be released for the short time (Rev.20:7), and he again will deceive nations. Then the bowls of wrath will be poured out on the earth.
will organize the living wicked -Gog (Rev.20:7) -
on the last battle: “O Gog…and many
people with thee…in the latter years thou shalt come into the land…of
Israel, which … is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell
safely all of them…dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor
Then alive righteous will be taken on the New Earth, and on the wicked 7-th bowl of wrath will be poured out - the rain of fire. «Upon the wicked he shall rain .. fire and brimstone, .. this shall be the portion of their cup (bowl)» (Ps.11:6 74:9; Jer.25:15,28,31,33).
Then the Great Judgment - the resurrection of "the rest of the dead" (Rev.20:5) (Second Resurrection): the wicked and the righteous, who didn't reach the Kingdom of Heaven : "the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation" (John 5:28,29, also Dan.12:2). The wicked will be cast down onto the burning earth, into the lake of fire. Everything on the old earth will be burned out.
new earth will be completely new planet, not the restored one:“ Behold,
I make all things new” (Rev.21:5). Our
old earth will become a smoking planet: "And
the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for eons and eons"
Bible says the bodies of the saints, who will be taken to the Kingdom of
Heaven, will be changed (1Cor.15:
Their bodies will be like body of Jesus – spiritual bodies (Phil.3:20,21;
like angels have (Luke
Their bodies will not require food (What
happens when we die?.
When all the righteous (Guests- "they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb" -Rev.19:9) will be gathered on the New earth, New Jerusalem (the Bride) - the saints- will descend to there. And then "the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His bride has prepared herself (after the 1000 years of preparation in the Kingdom of heaven)” (Rev.19:7).
So who are the saints (Bride), and who are the righteous (guests) (BRIDE and GUESTS on WEDDING FEAST )? Or what a person has to do in order to be saved and what he has to do not just to be saved but to enter the Kingdom of Heaven?
10 commandments were written on the two stone tablets. And it is not by an accident. God did it not because He couldn't write all the words on one tablet. The commandments written on the first tablet can be summarized as "love your God"; commandments on the second tablet - as "love your neighbor". The second tablet is tablet of salvation. Those who followed those commandments had a chance for salvation. Even pagans, in whose hearts the God's law was written: : “For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts” – Rom.2:13-15.
Those who followed commandments written on the tablet of salvation and on the tablet of Kingdom of Heaven (the first one) had chance to enter the Kingdom of heaven.
to the world to teach people not about the salvation (how to be a righteous),
but about the Kingdom of heaven (how to be a saint). «I
must preach the kingdom of God .. for therefore am I sent» (Luke

didn’t teach how to be good in order to have salvation, He taught how to be
perfect in order to enter Kingdom of Heaven.
for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot” (Ex.21:24)
taught people to love. “Ye
have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine
enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good
to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and
persecute you” Mat.5:43,44

(Col.3:14). And only perfect in love people will enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
taught people to be perfect: “Be
ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect”
the Kingdom of heaven is impossible to come without love which is fruit of the
Holy spirit. “Verily,
verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water (repentance) and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God”
not only taught but demonstrated by His own death the perfect love: “Greater

doesn’t require a perfect love. The fear of God will save people also.
of heaven is reward
to the saved people for the perfection of their faith.
Those entered the tabernacle who repented their sins. Out of the fear of the Lord they brought their animals for sacrifice for their sins, therefore salvation is for all who fear God and ask for forgiveness.
Into the sanctuary only Levites (the chosen ones) could enter. The tribe of Levi - Levites - were people chosen by God instead of the firstborn (Num.3:12), who were redeemed by blood of the Passover lamb during the last plaque in Egypt. Thus Levites, who were allowed to enter the sanctuary, symbolize people redeemed by the blood of the Lamb –Jesus.
Levites could enter the sanctuary only after washing themselves with the water in the laver, which was before the sanctuary. The laver was symbol of water baptism of repentance for the remission of sins (Luke 3:3). In order to enter the sanctuary they needed to go through the veil. The veil is barrier between salvation and the Kingdom, it can be taken down only by Holy Spirit (2Cor.3:14-17), given by Jesus.
Only those will be able to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, who will be purified by the blood of Jesus and born again "of water and the Spirit" (John 3:5), i.e. through repentance and accepting of Holy Spirit.
In the given work it is shown that all holy feasts symbolize some major events which will have place in the life of humanity (Holy Feasts ).
of Unleavened bread lasted for 7 days ( 7-number of eternity) and it symbolized the
eternal salvation given to us through blood of the Passover lamb – Jesus..
of the Firstfruits
- the first harvest – ascension the saints to
the Kingdom of Heaven
at Jesus’ coming.
of trumpets –
trumpets of Revelation .
of the Weeks
was celebrated in 50
days after Feast
of the Firstfruits
and symbolized the event which will follow 50 days after ascension the saints. The
earth will become the exclusive property of the righteous.
of tabernacles or
feast of gathering of fruits in the end of year lasted for 7 days and symbolized
the event when saints and righteous will be gathered together on the new earth
of Atonement symbolized
many events: Jesus ascension to heaven after the resurrection, when judgment was
given to Satan;
that the sacrifices
on these holy feasts also had symbolic meaning and by themselves confirmed the
meaning of the feasts (ch.33).
learn that Jesus death as Passover
sacrifice was in reality the ritual of consecration of people into the priests
for Kingdom of Heaven,
and by His death He opened the door into Kingdom for every His believer (ch.35).
all pointed to the fact that Kingdom of Heaven is the highest goal of salvation. And it is not the gift of God, but reward for the labor of love and complete trust in Him.
In this work it is shown that our generation is the last one (When will Jesus return? ). Some of us will be taken to heaven, and some with tears of disappointment will observe this breathtaking event. While it is not too late everyone can change something in their lives for become closer to the Kingdom.
