What will happen during the endtimes mentioned in the Bible
DeYoung: When you look at God's propheticevents that will unfold in the future, the very next thing to happen is going to be therapture of the church, when Jesus shouts, the archangel shouts, trump of God sounds,then those of us who know Christ are going to be caught up to be with Him in the air. There's going to be a period of time betweenthe rapture and the beginning of that sevenyear period of time referred to by Jesus as thetribulation period. It's during that time that the ten hornsof Daniel 7:7, the revived Roman Empire, comes into place.
Out of that revived Roman Empire, those tenhorns, comes the little horn, the Antichrist. He's a major player. At the same time Ezekiel talks about Russialeading the coalition of nations to come against the Jewish state. That all solidifies, and that's what wesee. In fact, when that Antichrist confirms a peacetreaty with Israel and her neighbors, that's when the attack takes place, and that'swhen we have the revived Roman Empire and Russia, two major players, looking for theleading role in this world.
Jesus, when asked over in the book of Matthew24 by His disciples who He'd been teaching for three and a half years, â€œGive us somesigns of Your coming,â€� you know what He said the first thing wasé Deception. Chapter 24, verses 4, 5, 11, 24, He said deception,false prophets, false messiahs. And He says in verse 24, â€œsigns, wondersand miracles.â€� Now we have a proliferation today â€“ lookat socalled Christian television â€“ of signs, wonders and miracles.
But wait a minute, am I saying that Jesuscan't perform a miracleé I didn't say that. He's God. He can do whatever He wants to. But the devil, according to Revelation 13,Revelation 19, Revelation 16, they're going to use signs, wonders and miracles to gatherall the nations to Jerusalem for that battle. So that's a major player. Wars and rumors of wars.
Man, we've rehearsed this on the last coupleof programs how that's all coming together. Pandemic disease; what about Ebolaé That could possibly be that pandemic disease. You're going to have earthquakes in diverseplaces. This is what Jesus said and it's interestingto note in the book of Revelation everything that's parallel to what Jesus said. There's going to be a temple in the cityof Jerusalem. The Antichrist will desecrate that templewith the abomination of desolation.
Jesus referred to Daniel's prophecy. He said when you see that happen flee, getout of town. Demonic activity, Satan, according to theScripture will be thrown out of heaven, down to the earth with the main purpose of destroyingthe Jewish people. Because if you can destroy the Jewish people,God fails in keeping His promises, the four covenants that He has with them. Chapter 18 in the book of Revelation is playedout and the Antichrist sets up a one world economic political power base.
1 Thessalonians 5 Bible Study on the Tribulation Rapture and End Times
1 Thessalonians chapter 5 verse number 1,the Bible reads, quot;But of the times and the seasons brethren, you have no need that Iwrite unto you, for yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thiefin the night.quot; When we look at this verse, it's obvious that we're continuing somethingthat was just being spoken, because it says, quot;But at the times and the seasons brethren,you have no need that I write unto you,quot; and the obvious question is, the times and theseasons of whaté What are we talking abouté If you remember, we just finished up in 1Thessalonians chapter 4 with the run down of Jesus Christ coming in the clouds and allthe believers being caught up together in
the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, whatis commonly known as the rapture. In fact 1 Thessalonians chapter 4 is the most famousrapture passage that people would point to as being they clearest description of thetrumpet sounding, quot;The dead in Christ rise first, and we which are alive and remain shallbe caught up together with them in the clouds.quot; Look at the end of verse 17 there. quot;To meetthe Lord in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Therefore, comfort one anotherwith these words, but .quot; You see that at the beginning of chapter five. That's whatwe're connected to. quot;Comfort one another with these words, but of the time and the seasonsbrethren, you have no need that I write unto
you.quot;So, the times and the seasons of whaté The times and the seasons of when the rapturewill take place. The times and the seasons of Jesus Christ coming in the clouds and thetrumpet sounding. He says, quot;Of the times and the seasons brethren, you have no need thatI write unto you, for yourself know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thiefof the night.quot; This sentence only makes sense if the day of the Lord and the rapture areboth happening at the same time. If those two things had different timing, then thiswould make absolutely no sense for God to say, quot;Here's what's going to happen at therapture, but of the times and the seasons
brethren, you have no need that in write untoyou, because let me tell you about a totally unrelated event and when it's going to happen.quot;That wouldn't really make any sense, would itéObviously this is a continuation. He describes rapture, and here's the thing. In chapter4, there is no discussion of the timing, because it's all just a discussion of where your departedloved ones are, and how they are going to be brought with Christ, and how we're goingto be caught up together with them. There's no timing given. In Chapter 5, he gets intothe timing and he says, quot;You don't need me to write it to you, because you already knowthe timing.quot; You already know that the day
of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.Verse three, quot;For when .quot; When has to do with the timing, quot;when they shall say peaceand safety then sudden destruction cometh upon them as travail upon a woman with childand they shall not escape, but you brethren are not in darkness that that day should overtakeyou as a thief.quot; So, this day is clearly bad for some peopleand good for others. For those that are not saved, he said it's going to come upon themas a thief in the night, and it's going to be sudden destruction coming upon them, buthe says unto us, we're not in darkness that that day should overtake us as a thief. So,Christ is not coming as a thief in the night
to those that are saved. He is coming as athief in the night to the unsaved. Notice when he says here, that that day should overtakeyou as a thief. Notice, he doesn't say, quot;You're not even going to be here for that day, you'realready going to be gone.quot; He doesn't say that, does heé No. He just says, it's notgoing to take you as a thief because you are of the light. You are awake. You see thiscoming, and we'll get in to that a little bit later, but what I want to point out hereis that the timing of the rapture is the same timing as the timing of the day of the Lord,and the day of the Lord is a major event that the Bible talks a lot about in both the OldTestament and the New Testament.
