After the rapture,
Christ and the saints are now the new powers of the air and immortal. Satan and his
angels, old powers of the air, cast down to earth by Michael and his angels (Rev 12:9). Satan is very angry and persecutes

DO NOT BE LEFT BEHIND!
Dan 7:9,10 I beheld till the thrones were cast down,
and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head
like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.
10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered
unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and
the books were opened.
Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell
in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down
unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto
the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

Events today and where prophecy is taking the Jews, Nations, and
Basically all the current trouble spots among the Gentile nations culminate in the rise of
Antichrist's Empire (timeframe 1).
Some of the events concerning the rise of Antichrist like his connection with outer space
(called the heavenlies in scripture) where Satan and his angels dwell seem like
science fiction but they are not.
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.
The church had better get ready for the most massive deception Satan is about to pull off
when he helps Antichrist to form his empire. God told Habakkuk concerning the rise of
Antichrist that those that are told how it will happen will not believe it unless they see
it (Habakkuk 1:5). 2 Thessalonians 2:9 tells us clearly about the coming of Antichrist and a strong
delusion to the world
Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously:
for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you.
2 Thess 2:9
9 Even him, whose coming is after the
working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of
unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that
they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send
them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie
The current Arab/Israeli
conflict over Jerusalem and the land, culminates in the reappearing of the Ark of the
Covenant, repentance toward Jehovah (not
to Christ - this does not happen till after the rapture when Christ returns) and a second exodus out of Egypt. All this happens in (timeframe 2). For a picture of Israel,
Gentile nations, Church in the years leading up to the rapture see timeframe 3.
After the rapture, their is the 3 1/2
year Christian tribulation period (timeframe
4) when Christ opens the 6 seals while Antichrist is persecuting worldwide unto death
those that confess and turn to Christ as savior. This period is followed by the 7 year
terrible Day of the Lord (timeframe 5) in
which the 7th and final seal is opened. The 7th seal is divided into 7 trumpet/vial
judgments. Great heat is applied to the earth during this time in these judgments, the
polar caps will be melting rapidly. The earth will also begin to reel to and fro as the
earth's axis goes from it's current 23 degree tilt to being upright with a restored water
canopy like Gen 1:6-8 all by Christ's return (see Daniel 11 page 3, click on
earth images above for more scriptures).These
changes result in a new heaven and earth for the old heaven and earth will pass away. It is the same heaven and earth we know today but made new. This is
the same process as Christians that are saved - old things pass away and God makes
everything new. Your body. soul, spirit are not destroyed in the process but changed. So
will it be with the current heaven and earth when it is made new. Peter sums up the Day of
the Lord this way
2 Pet 3:10-13
But the day of the Lord will come as
a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the
elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall
be burned up.
11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye
to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on
fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth,
wherein dwelleth righteousness.
The 7 year terrible Day of the Lord ends with Christ visible
return with his raptured saints. Antichrist and his armies are defeated, his empire
destroyed, and the long awaited eternal Kingdom of God over the whole earth (Kingdom) is visibly established.
The Kingdom of God will be perfected within 1000 years (Millenium) on earth and in
heaven. This will the fulfillment of the Lord's prayer - thy Kingdom come, thy will be
done on earth as it is in heaven. In heaven there will be the Father, angels, the raptured saints , resurrected tribulation martyrs who all will be
an immortal fixed number (they do not
marry and procreate) of heavenly
saints who are Christ's bride, Queen, priests, Kings and rule with Christ from the capitol
of the universe - the New Jerusalem - suspended over the earth. On earth, will be
the saved nations whose people at the end of the Millenium (1000 years) have been given the right to eat of the tree of life giving
them immortality as an earthly people (Rev 22:2). Death is taken
away from their bodies. They become what Adam and Eve were meant to be before the fall.
God told them to be fruitful and multiply (Gen 1:28). The immortal
nations will continue to have children forever and the Kingdom of God will increase forever, taking dominion, first over the whole earth, and then extending to all
the planets, stars, galaxies (Kingdom).
As the Kingdom expands so will the dominion, responsibilities, of the saints in heaven who
are a fixed number. Their will be plenty to do as well as fullness of joy and pleasures
Psalm 16:11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at
thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
To God be the glory forever and ever, AMEN. For further overview see Rapture Generation expanded time chart or full overview or timeframes layout
