Books: Age of the Antichrist: Are We There Yet; Breaking it Down: The Short Version of the Last Days; Revelation and the Age of the Antichrist

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the following I have outlined the main focus of my three books.

1.            There is much out there on the ordering of prophetic events. Because of the various contradicting views, there is also much confusion about the ordering of events and where we are on the prophetic timeline.

2.            Perhaps the #1 cause of all the confusion is that there is not one timeline from which the ordering of events are built upon.

3.            The big question we must ask concerning the timing and ordering of last day events is, “Has God given to us a timeline that doesn’t need our rearranging?” The resounding answer is—YES! God has given a timeline from which we can order all prophetic events.

4.            In the books of Daniel, Matthew 24, and the book of Revelation there are five timelines given that focus on a specific time period in history. These timelines also connect to the one before it to make one timeline beginning around 608 BC with Babylon and king Nebuchadnezzar and ending with the return of Christ and the deliverance of God’s people into their eternal reward. When we add to this timeline creation, the pre-flood period, and Israel’s pre captivity period, we have the timeline of history from Creation to our eternal home with Christ.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5.            THE FIRST prophetic/historical timeline is recorded in Daniel 2. The focus in Daniel 2 is on the main empires that impact the entire span of world history to lead to the last days. These empires are Babylon, Persia, Grecian Empire, the Roman Empire, and the realignment of all nations into ten regions.  This timeline allows us to place all prophetic events and timelines into their proper order.

6.            THE SECOND prophetic/historical timeline is recorded in Daniel 7. The focus in Daniel 7 is on those empires that will rise up to set into place the last pieces necessary for earth’s last empire and the appearing of the Antichrist. These empires are represented with their animal symbol of a lion, eagle’s wings, bear, leopard, and a great terrible beast. These represent Great Britain/United States, Russia, Islam, and the realignment of all nations into ten regions known today as the New World Order.

7.            THE THIRD prophetic/historical timeline is outlined in Daniel 9 and is known by students of prophecy as the “70 weeks.” These 70 weeks clearly identifies dated events. These events are: 1) The Decree to rebuild Jerusalem until its completion, 49 weeks (445-396 BC); 2) Completion of Jerusalem to the crucifixion of Christ, 62 weeks (434 BC-38 AD). The last event is the last seven years of earth’s history known as the 7th week.  Because of its clear dating and measurable events, we know the 70 weeks are placed on Daniel 2’s timeline between the divided Roman Empire and the arrival of the Antichrist. It is out of the divided Roman Empire that this fourth beast rises up.

8.            It is obvious that there is a large span of time between the end of the 62 weeks (Christ’s death) and the arrival of the Antichrist. This would place this span of time after the death of Christ and during the Divided Roman Empire until the arrival of the Antichrist. This span of time is traditionally known as “a pause” and “the last days.” It is in this span of time that we can now place our fourth prophetic/historical timeline.

9.            THE FOURTH prophetic/historical timeline is outlined in Matthew 24. In this timeline Jesus records the events and ordering of the last days in 28 short verses. This timeline links Daniel 2’s timeline with Daniel 7’s timeline. These verses are also broken down into three categories: 1) Everyday Events; 2) Beginning of Sorrows; 3) the Age of the Antichrist. As we travel through the events of each of these categories, we also know how close we are to the arrival of the Antichrist and Jesus.

10.          THE FIFTH prophetic/historical timeline is outlined in the book of Revelation. The revelation records earth’s last seven years, the arrival of the Antichrist, and the great tribulation. This timeline takes us through the churches apostasy (2-3), the arrival of the Antichrist (4-6), the great revival of God’s people (7-13), the return of Christ, the rapture, the wrath of God (14-19), and entrance into our final rewards in either heaven or hell (20-22).

11.          When we connect these five timelines together, in the time sequence they were given, we have a comprehensive prophetic /historical timeline that allows us to know the ordering of events and where we are on the last day’s continuum.  The events recorded in sequence in the books of Daniel, Matthew 24, and Revelation reveals the following ordering of events:

                a.            Apostasy

                b.            The Antichrist arrives (7 Seals)

                c.             Great tribulation by the Antichrist

                d.            Revival of God’s people (7 Trumpets)

                e.            Christ returns

                f.             Rapture

                g.            God’s day and hour judgment (7 Vials)

                h.            Armageddon

                i.             Marriage supper of the lamb

                j.             Millennium

                k.            Gog and Magog

                l.             Great White Throne Judgment

                m.           Eternal Reward and Punishment

12.          Steve has written three books with each focusing on the ordering of prophetic events:

                a.            The Age of the Antichrist: Are We There Yet?  This book briefly outlines the timelines recorded in the books of Daniel, Matthew 24, and Revelation.

                b.             Revelation and the Age of Antichrist  The book of Revelation is the timeline of the age of the Antichrist and earth's last seven years. Following the Revelation's natural ordering we know the ordering of events during this period.

                 b.           The Prophetic Timeline - This brief book of 102 pages takes the 5 timelines in the above two books to focus on the comprehensive timeline.
