A Timeline Of Prophetic Events

  1. 1. A T imeline of P rophetic E vents - things to watch for Article was written b y Pete Rose at www.raptureready.com Presentation by : www.house-of-glory.blogspot.com
  2. 2. Introduction <ul><li>The following is a listing of events assembled from various books of the Bible, things we can expect to happen starting probably in the near future, or in coming years. </li></ul><ul><li>My knowledge of Bible prophecy is at best incomplete, and things may not happen in the exact order listed here. It also is not all-inclusive, and I may have missed some events. But this should give you a pretty good idea of what's coming, and the general order of things. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Lest we forget and lose sight of the accuracy of God's prophecies, let us consider past prophecies that have been fulfilled to the letter, first those concerning Jesus Christ. </li></ul><ul><li>To name a few... </li></ul>The Past Prophecy of First Coming of Mesiah
  4. 4. Prophecy Fulfillment in Jesus Christ
  5. 5. <ul><li>There were over 100 such details of prophecy such as the above given concerning the first coming of Christ, and each one was fulfilled to the letter. </li></ul><ul><li>The odds against even a few of these being fulfilled by chance are enormous; the odds against all of them being literally fulfilled are astronomical. But they were, every one to the letter. </li></ul>Over 100 prophecies
  6. 6. Another example of Past Prophecy Fulfill ment – The Destruction of Tyre <ul><li>Now let's consider another prophecy, </li></ul><ul><li>T he destruction of the city of Tyre, a wealthy seaport. </li></ul><ul><li>The prophet Ezekiel prophesied that Tyre would be destroyed, that the timbers and the rock of the city would be dumped into the water and that the city would be scraped bare like the top of a rock, and would become a place for fishermen to dry their nets (Ezekiel 26). </li></ul><ul><li>It was also prophesied that Nebuchadnezzar would come against the city and destroy it, which he did not too many years after Ezekiel made this prophecy. But it was only the mainland city that was destroyed, the remaining inhabitants moved to an island somewhere around a mile out in the Mediterranean Sea. </li></ul>
  7. 7. It took two great kingdoms to fulfilled the prophecy. <ul><li>Since Nebuchadnezzar didn't have a navy and the island city was heavily fortified, it was left alone and continued to exist for perhaps another 400 years. But then Alexander the Great came along, determined to conquer the world, and he didn't have a navy either. But he wasn't going to let that stop him. So he had an army of workers tear down the remains of the mainland, dump the rubble in the water, and build a broad causeway out to the island. From there he eventually overpowered the city's defenses and ravaged it, slaughtering a great many of its inhabitants and enslaving others. The site of the mainland city had been literally scraped to bare rock, and came to be used by fishermen as a place to dry their nets, thus fulfilling this prophecy to the letter in a very literal sense. </li></ul>
  8. 8. What about the prophecies for the coming future? <ul><li>With so many Bible prophecies having been so accurately and literally fulfilled, what would make us think that prophecies of events yet future will not be fulfilled just as literally as those which have already been fulfilled? </li></ul><ul><li>With that in mind, let's take a look at some of these prophecies of events soon to come. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Prophecy now and in the near future
  10. 10. Prophecy at Tribulation time in near future.
  11. 11. Prophecy After Tribulation in Future
  12. 12. The Restoration of Israel as a Nation. <ul><li>One of the greatest prophecies of all times has been fulfilled in recent years, the restoration of the nation Israel to its land . </li></ul><ul><li>Never before in the history of the world has a nation been dispersed to the ends of the Earth as Israel was and retained its identity. Its people have been assimilated into the nations to which they were scattered. But the Jews have not only maintained their identity, in this end of days they have once again been re-gathered into the sovereign nation of Israel. </li></ul>
  13. 13. The Olivet Discourse Prophecy <ul><li>In His Olivet discourse (Matthew 24) Jesus gave his disciples some signs whereby they could know when the time was at hand. He gave the sign of the fig tree, </li></ul><ul><li>a symbol of the nation Israel . </li></ul><ul><li>He said when the fig tree buds and puts forth leaves, you know summer time is nearing. Likewise when you see all these things begin to come to pass, know that it is near, even at the doors. Then Jesus stated, the generation which sees these things begin to come to pass will not pass away until all is fulfilled that He prophesied in that discourse. Israel became a nation again in 1947. It is now 2009, over 60 years since this beginning sign came to pass. Surely the return of Jesus must be very, very near . </li></ul>
  14. 14. Not by Our Own Righteous ness <ul><li>Keep in mind through all of this, that none of us are saved by our own righteousness . </li></ul><ul><li>The prophet Isaiah says “ we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousness are as filthy rags in the sight of God ” (Isaiah 64:6). None of us in our natural state are fit to stand before God. It is only the shed blood of Jesus Christ that makes any of us worthy to stand in God's presence, and Jesus voluntarily let his blood be shed on the cross that we might be saved and made worthy to stand in His presence. </li></ul>
  15. 15. We are saved by His Grace <ul><li>God is not willing that any should perish, but would have all people to turn to Him and receive His salvation. But God will not force anyone to receive Christ, you must make that decision for yourself. </li></ul><ul><li>God cannot allow sin in His presence. When Jesus died on the cross, God placed all our sins on Him and He died in our place, to make full payment for our sins, indeed the sins of the whole world, and to buy our pardon. But like a prisoner offered a pardon, we must receive it before it will be effective. Jesus offers all of us pardon for our sins today, but we still must voluntarily receive it by receiving Him into our lives and our hearts. When we do this, God sees all our sins paid for by Jesus, and sees the righteousness of Christ in us, and it is by Christ's righteousness in us we are saved and made worthy to stand in the presence of God. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Who will be left behind? <ul><li>For all who refuse or neglect to receive this pardon, it is a whole different story. </li></ul><ul><li>While all who receive Christ now will be ushered into the very presence of God at the rapture, those who didn't will be left behind to experience the horrors of the Great Tribulation. </li></ul><ul><li>Most likely most of these will be killed and end up in the flames of Hades, reserved for the judgment of the Great White Throne where they will hear their doom pronounced before being cast into the lake of fire for all of eternity. And all who receive the mark of the beast to try to buy some time on Earth will seal their doom eternally. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Is it possible to be saved during Tribulation? <ul><li>Yes it will be possible to be saved during the Tribulation, but it will be much more difficult then than now, and will probably be at the cost of your life. </li></ul><ul><li>Even so, better to receive Jesus and get your head chopped off, and to stand in His presence after that, than to die without Him and go to an eternal hell. </li></ul><ul><li>Still better, receive Jesus now, </li></ul><ul><li>and you will go into His presence immediately when you die or when you go in the rapture. </li></ul>
  18. 18. No better time than NOW <ul><li>Why not do it now, </li></ul><ul><li>before you find yourself left behind to go through the horrors of the great tribulation, or to die in your sins and go into eternal torment? </li></ul>
