A Survey of the End Times
In Africa, the big five refer to the elephant, rhino, lion, leopard, and buffalo. Here in Australia, the big 5 are the kangaroo, koala, wombat, echidna, and platypus. However, when it comes to what God has planned for the future of this world, there is a very different big five! Here are the five cosmic-shaking prophetic events due sometime soon:
The Rapture of the Church (1 Thess 4:13-18): Believers, dead and living, are given resurrected bodies as they meet Jesus in the air on their way to heaven.
The Seven-Year Tribulation Period (Rev 4-18): God pours out his wrath on a hostile world, preparing the nation of Israel to receive her Messiah.
The Second Coming of Jesus Christ (Rev 19): Jesus returns with the saints and angels to the Mt of Olives, defeating his enemies in an instant.
The Thousand-Year Reign of Christ on Earth (Rev 20): Jesus reigns over the earth fulfilling the covenant promises to Israel. Believers reign with him.
Eternity (Rev 20:11-22:6): Believers live with Christ forever in bliss, while those who don’t believe in Jesus suffer eternal torment.
Are you ready for what lies ahead? You will be if you trust Christ as your saviour and live your life for him.
