Phase 1


natuurramp.jpgProblems in the world are increasing.[1]

Think of problems in the field of environment and various natural disasters, but also all kinds of (growing) economic, political and problems of spiritual nature.

[1] See our studies:God shall shake the Church and the world…”, “The Day of YaHWeH”, "The 7 thunderclaps…”.

 


Phase 2


Mental (and spiritual) preparation of the Bride.[2]

The Bride will be made similar – in the spirit – to her Bridegroom. First hidden. Later revealed and, visible for others. (This is the real: Participation at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb[3] – see Rev. 19:9 of the KJV. Meaning: Being prepared to let all the old and sinful ways COMPLETELY die in our hearts and lives!).

Just as we should not take on an unequal yoke in marriage, the same and even more so applies to Christ (read Rev. 19:7b-9 and Eph. 5:26-27).

[2] See our studies:The 5 wise and the 5 foolish virgins…”, “The victors…”, “The perfection in Christ…”, “Soon there will be a Divine Wedding…”, “Sanctification”, “The Divine healing work…”, “What God has prepared for those, who love Him”, “LUKE – The book of the NEW MAN in Christ”. [3] See our study:Called by the Spirit of God… unto the marriage supper of the Lamb…”.


Phase 3


russiantank.jpgWar of Gog and Magog.

Read Ezekiel, Chapter 38 and 39.
With Gog, Magog, Tubal and Meshech we refer to Russia and China (and presumably North Korea and Iran).

With Sheba, Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish and all their young lions we refer to all ‘Christian’ countries.




Phase 4


A 'great' man (or woman) will appear on the world stage posing as a world leader who apparently will solve a lot of problems in the world.

See for further explanation Phase 6 and 7.

 
Phase 5


The latter-rain revival begins.[4]

The outpouring of the Holy Spirit into the hearts and lives of the Bride will cause a great revival resulting into a bountiful harvest of souls (see Joel 2:23b and 28-29).

 

[4] See our study:The wonderful works of the Holy Spirit”.



Phase 5a



The Wedding of the Lamb.[5]

Just before the great tribulation Jesus will come back (INvisible) for his Bride – in the spirit – to marry her. The marriage of Christ and his Bride (or Bride church) is called “the great Mystery" (see Eph. 5:32).

[5] See our study:Soon there will be a Divine Wedding…”.



Phase 6


Start of the 1st period of 3½ years reign of the earlier mentioned world leader, who seemingly seem to bring peace to the world.

This will be the 1st period of 3½ years where the Antichrist is already ruling but where most people see him (falsely) as peace ruler or Messiah, as the world leader who seems to solve a lot of world problems. This will be followed by the 2nd period of 3½ years (see Phase 7) in which the Antichrist will show his true face. Think of the biblical warning: “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them” (see 1 Thess. 5:3).



Phase
7


Start of the
great tribulation of 3½ years.

The aforementioned world leader is now FULLY owned by satan, and so transformed into a VERY CRUEL world leader, the Antichrist (the opponent of Christ and Christians). And this will be clearly noticeable to all sincere Christians. They will be persecuted (and many of them will be slain). But... God will come to rescue many of them. See the next stage.

(For the Jews / Israelites God has another plan – see Phase 7c).



Phase
7a


The caught up (unto God) of the 144000 and the fled of the Bride.

Just after the start of the
great tribulation, the male son - the 144,000 from the 12 tribes of Israel[6] - will be taken into heaven (see Rev. 12:4b-5). Soon after that the Bride will be taken away – the so-called removal – to the desert, where she will be kept and fed by God for 1260 days (see Rev. 12:6 and 14).

[
6] See our study:Thou, people of Israël, wake up”



Phase
7b


Martyrdom of the remaining Christians during 3½ year
great tribulation.

Christians (the so-called forecourt Christians – see Rev. 11:1-2), the ones who will NOT participate in the fled of the Bride, and due to deficiencies and/or imperfections in their faith[7] NOT belong to the Bride of Christ, will – if they refuse the sign of the beast – die the martyr death during the great tribulation, the 3½ year reign of the Antichrist. The 42 months (or 3½ years or 1278 days) of Revelation 11:2.


[7] See our study: The 5 wise and the 5 foolish virgins...



Phase
7c


The 2 witnesses of God in Israel (see Rev. 11:3-12).


During the
great tribulation of 1260 days, 2 special witnesses, personally sent by God (probably Moses and Elijah) will come to Israel. This will convince many Jews / Israelites to a conversion to the true faith in Jesus Christ, THE Messiah.




Phase
7d


The sign of the beast.

All the other people in the great tribulation will adopt the sign of the beast, which will make them possessed (fully taken in possession) by the Antichrist. This is irreversible for them. Those who adopt the sign of the beast can NEVER repent and have a conversion.






Phase
8


Christ is coming back to earth[
8] – visible to all people – with His army of 144,000 soldiers.wederkomst.jpg

  • This return signals the end of the great tribulation.
  • Desiest Christians of all ages (and the Old Testament
    believers) are raised from the dead.
  • The Bride – who until that moment has been kept alive on
    this earth – will now, together with the ones resurrected from
    the death, in a point of time be changed
    (see 1 Thess. 4:14-17).

[8] See our study:A closer look at Christ’s Second Coming”.



Phase
9


The start of the Millennium (the 1000-year reign of God).
[9]

During this Millennium of God’s Peace, ALL Christians will be brought to the same spiritual level: This applies to the ones who barely made it into the Kingdom of God and the so-called saints of all ages, the perfect Bride and everything – in the spiritual sense – in between. The Bible clearly states that “no flesh and blood” will inherit the Kingdom of God. So there will be no conversions during the Millennium. Besides, all living godless people – those who adopted the sign of the beast – will be slain by Jesus (and the 144,000) at His return (see Rev. 19:11-21).


[9] See our study:What Scripture teaches about the Millennium of King Jesus”.




Phase 10


The new heaven and new earth.

After the Millennium, the Government of God will start on the new earth(s), the (new) habitable planets created by God. In this new world(’s) we will reign with Christ over the then created mankind. He as THE King and we as kings. He as THE Lord, we as lords. See also Luke 19:17b and 19 “you shall have authority over ten or five cities.”[10]
