Timeframe/Revelation events

Read me first, please

A study of the scriptures will tell you that outer space today is not populated by other races of intelligent life except God's angels and Satan's. However, space in the future will be populated by an ever increasing and expanding Kingdom of God that began with Christ's birth and is ongoing now. In the meantime Satan wants you to believe in Extraterrestrial life, UFO's, flying saucers, ascended masters, cosmic brotherhood of gods, new age philosophies, karma cycle of evolution, etc.  In fact, one of the main reasons for the rise of Antichrist will be to deceive you to believe all that, especially before the rapture. To understand God's purpose for earth and outer space we need to study God's Word and lose our natural mind that can conjecture anything and get the mind of Christ instead. Below is a study on outer space and earth and what God's past and present purposes are. You will study that in Genesis 1 God created the Kingdom of heaven over all of creation including the earth. Following the original creation, a portion of space which would include the earth, was given over to Lucifer (God's holy archangel) and his holy angels after Genesis 1:1 but before Genesis 1:2 and is commonly called the Luciferic Kingdom. Because of sin, the Luciferic Kingdom is found to be judged by God in Gen 1:2 and the earth became void and darkness on the face of the deep. Though God judged the physical  creation Lucifer ruled over, Lucifer's spiritual kingdom continues today and is called Satan's Kingdom. Lucifer - the holy archangel became Satan the dark archangel. God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to be born on this earth to begin a Kingdom called the Kingdom of God that is now growing and soon will replace Satan's Kingdom. The Jews, Gentiles, Church each have an eternal role in the Kingdom of God .The Kingdom of God will continue to grow, expand and increase forever starting with it's first seed in space - planet earth. As this growth continues outward from earth, it is then that the planets, stars and galaxies will be populated in the process. Two key events that will happen in the near future that will have a major impact on Satan's Kingdom being destroyed is the rapture and the visible return of Christ. Satan knows about these events and will use all of his satanic power, signs and lying wonders to deceive the world about the future role of outer space to explain away the rapture and the visible return of Christ. That is why (before the rapture) Satan will make contact with earth using Antichrist as the great mediator to help him bring about false peace and safety in the world. In fact, Satan and his angels help Antichrist in his wars to form his empire giving him visible air support enabling his land forces to be successful.  His resulting empire will be larger than the Babylon, Persian, Grecian, Roman Empires combined (see Daniel 2, Daniel 7, Daniel 8 and table and timeframe 1 in time chart  above). Satan's real goal is to deceive the world concerning the rapture and the visible return of Christ. Satan wants to get the whole world on his side and eventually get the whole world to see return of Christ as an attack from outer space by some renegade race or civilization. The world will believe him because he has already deceived them by his great lies, satanic power, his star war rise before the rapture in timeframe 1 (see table above). The disappearance of Christians at the rapture will be explained away as something in the best interest of mankind by the gods above. There has been many books written and movies made about outer space contacting earth confirming the existence of life on other planets. Surely, most of us reason that this planet cannot be the only planet that supports life in this universe when one considers the number of planets that must exist based on the billions of stars within galaxies and billions of galaxies . With our natural mind we certainly agree that mathematically the possibilities exist. However, the natural mind can conjecture anything it wants. On the other hand we have God's Holy Bible - the creator's handbook on his creation and purpose. To understand God's Word we must in a very real sense lose our mind (natural) which is sometimes very hard to do and get the spiritual mind that God has that was in Christ. Philippians 2:5, Col 2:2,3 confirms this

Philippians 2:5
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

Col 2:2,3 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the
full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of
the Father, and of Christ;

3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge

Col 2:2,3
tells us to have the assurance of our understanding we will find that in Christ are ALL the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Christ reveals the will of the Father, the mind of the Son, teaching of the Holy Spirit.  When we think of God's original creation think of this way. The Father planned it; Jesus spoke it; the Holy Spirit did it. The mystery of God is revealed then in having the mind of Christ. How do we get the mind of Christ? By studying God's Word. The Word of God is the mind of God spoken through the writer's of the Old and New Testament as they were directed by the Holy Spirit.  

2Pe 1:21
For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

To be approved unto God then we must study His Word, get his mind, and we can have assurance of our understanding.

2Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

First let us understand the terms: Kingdom of heaven; Lucifer's preadamite Kingdom; Satan's Kingdom today; the Kingdom of God on earth that began when Christ was born

Genesis 1:1  Kingdom of heaven

Genesis 1:1  In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
The original creation of Gen 1:1 was Kingdom of heaven created and ruled over by Father, Son, Holy Spirit

Between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2 Luciferic Kingdom created over a portion of outer space including the earth. 

Luciferic Kingdom

   Sometime between Gen 1:1 and Gen 1:2 God gave Lucifer one of the three archangels mentioned in the Bible (other two are Michael and Gabriel) a kingdom to rule over which included a portion of outer space that included the earth as the starting point of this kingdom. Let's call it the Luciferic Kingdom. Some say that each of the archangels (Michael, Gabriel, Lucifer) each had dominion over 1/3 of creation and each had a 1/3 of the angels under them. Whatever the case may be, we know that Lucifer's Kingdom ended in great judgment and the earth became void (waste) and no light was shining on it. The atmosphere was darkened. We read in Genesis 1:2

Genesis 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the
deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

How do we know that Lucifer became Satan between Gen 1:1 and Gen 1:2?
Because when God created Adam and Eve in the garden Lucifer was now Satan the fallen angel.

Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

At the rapture of the church Satan and his angels will be cast down to earth. This is recorded in
Rev 12:9.  What is clear in this verse is the reference to the serpent as Satan and has been around a long time.

Revelations 12:9
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out
with him.

         Birth of Christ began the Kingdom of God on this earth

 After the Luciferic judgment record in
Gen 1:2, Lucifer the good archangel has now become Satan the dark archangel. Satan immediately went to work to hinder God's plans for Adam and Eve. Satan did not know God's plan of redemption if Adam and Eve sinned that God would sacrifice His eternal son Jesus Christ for the world to be reconciled back to God. Satan did not know that Jesus would one day overthrow and destroy his Kingdom and establish an everlasting kingdom called the Kingdom of God. Satan used a woman Eve to get Adam to fall and in turn God used a woman Mary to bring Christ into the world to get Satan to fall. God pronounced judgment upon Adam, Eve and the serpent. God cursed the serpent (Gen 3:14,15) and cursed him above all cattle and beast of the field and that upon his belly he would go and dust he would eat. 

Genesis 3:14,15 And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

   God speaks to Satan (
Gen 3:15) who had indwelt the serpent just like Satan will indwell antichrist after the rapture.

Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

God said to Satan He would put enmity (
hatred) between Satan and woman, and that one day there would be a woman who shall have seed within her that would bruise the head of Satan, but in the process Satan would bruise the heel of the seed of the woman. The only woman in bible history to produce seed within herself is Mary - the mother of Jesus. The man produces seed the woman produces the egg. 'Her seed' would have to be a miracle. Isaiah 7:14 also prophesized this miracle and the fulfillment recorded in Luke 1:35.

Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

Luke 1:35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

Satan was judged in the courts of heaven when he killed a man that he had no legal hold on because Jesus never sinned (
1 Titus 3:16). In the courts of heaven Jesus was vindicated for death and hell could not hold Him and He was resurrected to the right hand of the Father (1 peter 3:22).  We read in 1 Corinthians 2:8 that if Satan's princes (rulers under Satan) had known the plan of God they would not have crucified Christ

1 Cor 2:8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have
crucified the Lord of glory.

1Ti 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh,
justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

1Pe 3:22 Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and
powers being made subject unto him.

Her seed then was the birth of Christ. The bruising of his heel (Gen 3:15) was when Jesus died on the cross and the nails pierced his feet. The day that Adam and Eve sinned God announced to the Satan the birth and death of Jesus Christ and through because of those events Satan's head was bruised. Head would symbolize authority. Adam was the head of the woman. Christ is the head of the church. Satan is the head of his kingdom. Satan suffered a mighty blow to the head when Jesus took the keys of hell and death from him and ascended into heaven (Rev 1:18) spoiling principalities and powers (Col 2:15).

Rev 1:18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Col 2:15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing
over them in it.

3 kingdoms that currently exist today

Kingdom of heaven

Satan's Kingdom

Kingdom of God

Kingdom of heaven from Gen 1:1

Heb 12:22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,
23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to
God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect
24And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that
speaketh better things than that of Abel.7

    Satan's Kingdom from Gen 1:2

Satan rules air and high places (space)
EEph 2:2 Satan Eph 6:12
principalities powers rulers
(Spirits of preadamite race)

Eph 2:2 Satan prince/power of the air
Eph 6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places

Kingdom of God was foretold a number of times in the Old Testament and began on earth with one man -    Jesus Christ and continues to grow as each newly saved peson is added in response to the great commission to preach the gospel in all the world (Mark 16:15-20).

                                   More on Satan's Kingdom today

Even though, Satan, his angels, demons are defeated by Christ's death and resurrection God is allowing them to continue to serve his purpose. The church, nations, Jews are like clay. Satan wants to mold them for his kingdom and Christ wants to mold them for His Kingdom. God will allow this spiritual battle to go on until Christ visibly returns and judges Satan, his angels, and demons.
   We all know the story how Adam and Eve sinned in the garden. Now in God's creation who has more authority outside of Christ - fallen man or fallen angels. The answer is the fallen angels. So when the Adamic Kingdom failed because of sin, Satan's kingdom had full reign over the earth and mankind. The whole earth and possibly 1/3 of outer space is now a kingdom of spiritual darkness ruled by Satan and his fallen angels of different ranks (
Eph 6:12 - see chart above: principalities, powers, thrones in high places (heavenlies -outer space) and down on earth's surface the ranks of demons (spirits leftover from the preadamite race waiting to be judged) reign on the earth.  Do not confuse the Satan and his fallen angels with demons. They are a separate class of spirits that dwell on earth that completes the chain of command from earth to Satan's throne. Those are the small guys compared to the big guns Satan has in high places (outer space). As mentioned earlier, Satan had a kingdom he ruled over before Adam and Eve. His angels ruled with him. They ruled over some type of preadamite world. Satan' s preadamite kingdom was judged. The demon spirits of today were once the preadamites who, before they died, had a body.  Some may question the preadamite race theory but one has only to read what God said to Adam and Eve in Genesis 1:27,28. He told them to be fruitful and replenish the earth. To replenish is to replace that which was there.

Genesis 1:27,28  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Jeremiah 4:23-26 talks of a time between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2 when God judged the earth and all the birds were fled, and no man was to be found, and the fruitful places became a wilderness and all the cities were broken down.

Jeremiah 4:23-26 I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light.
24 I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly.
25 I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.
26 I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the Lord, and by his fierce

This could not refer to a time between the creation of Adam till now. There has always been a man on the earth. Who built the cities that were broken down? These
verses are describing the judgment of the preadamite order under Satan and his angels. Compare Genesis 1:2 with Jeremiah 4:23 - both say the exact same truths

Genesis 1:1:2

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

God in
Genesis 1:1 Created the original heaven and earth. We are not told the time though science says it could be about 15 billion years ago. This could be true and does not change anything about Genesis 1:1. Since Genesis 1:1 a lot of history has taken place between the original creation and recreation that lasted seven days. Scripture only gives us what God wants us to know by a glimpse into that time of history.

Isaiah 14:12-14
records the preadamite time when Lucifer became Satan.

Isaiah 14:12-14  How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

God judged that preadamite kingdom and the heavens became dark and the earth void as described in
Genesis 1:2. Since the time of Adam and Eve their has been a cosmic battle of gigantic proportions for the souls and future destinies of men. Man continues to wrestle with these principalities, powers, thrones and preadamite beings - Satan, his angels and demons. This explains in scripture why demons seek to possess a body because they once had one. Jesus commands his believers to cast out devils out of those who are possessed so that they may be free from demonic control (Mark 16:17 see also the great commission). 

Mark 16:17
17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

        Satan's Kingdom replaced by Christ's Kingdom in 2 steps - Rapture and his visible coming

  By the time Christ returns, Christ replaces Satan, the church replaces the fallen angels, and the nations that are saved eternally replaces the preadamite world. Today, God is using Satan, his fallen angels and demons as a tool in His hand to mold the clay of future nations and rulers for the Kingdom of GOD. There will be a new heaven and earth wherein dwelleth righteousness. When God is finished with that work all evil shall be judged (
see Kingdom).

We see then that Satan's Kingdom comes to an end when Christ returns. First at the rapture Christ and the saved Christians who are now made immortal take over the territory that Satan and his angels ruled both in the air and outer space.

1 THESS 4:16-18
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

1 COR 15:51-53
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

   After the rapture their follows the 3 1/2 year Christian tribulation (timeframe 4 above) and the 7 year terrible Day of the Lord (timeframe 5 above). Then Christ returns with his raptured saints and defeats Antichrist and his armies. Lucifer's Kingdom comes to an end and the Kingdom of God now rules. Though the Kingdom of God is mostly limited to the earth we read that after a 1000 yrs the Kingdom of heaven (Gen 1:1) and the Kingdom of God (began with the birth of Christ) become one. This was the prayer Jesus prayed in the 'Our Father' in Matt 6:9-13

Matthew 6:9-13
After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

The Kingdom of God will increase and expand outwards from the earth forever populating the stars, planets and galaxies in the process

  We read in
Rev 21
that the nations saved nations will eat of the tree of life and be immortal as earthly people. They are the ones that will populate the planets and galaxies that God has created as the Kingdom expands outwards from the earth in every direction and increases forever. Isa 9:6 sums it up this way. Jews will have all of their promised land and the church will be the bride, priests and kings with Christ and rule from the New Jerusalem suspended over the earth. (see Kingdom for more full detail).

Isaiah 9:6
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
