1. Roots of the industrial age can be traced back to 600 B.C. to
Thales of Miletus, a citizen of Ionia credited with the invention of
2. Jesus was crucified (Beginning the 70 weeks/generations) Dan
The apostasy (falling away from the faith) started approximately 300
A.D., beginning with the invention of Catholicism (2The 2:1-4)
Hitler rose to power
He used the catholic doctrines of anti-Semitism to condemn the Jews for martyring their own messiah
He also used Darwin's atheism, based on the theory of evolution (survival of the
fittest), to justify the holocaust
Rise of the United States economy after WWII
6. Rise of Russia and China
7. The apostasy humanized religion, while science denies all forms of
spirituality, establishing materialism as the secular worldview. The
result has hardened man’s heart. People have since become unreachable
after replacing a healthy fear of God with a reprobate mind in
preparation to receive the antichrist (Mat 24:12).
8. 70th week (generation) of Daniel Begins
9. Harsh weather patterns - beginning of birth pangs (Mat 24-8)
The first seal: Horseman rides a

be unable to pay their debts.
United States economy will collapse, leading
economic collapse (Dan 2:40-43).
The world economy is represented by ten world banks (Dan 7:7)
An opportunistic man of lawlessness, portrayed in Daniel as the
11th horn, will hijack three of the ten world banks in his rise to power, becoming stronger than any of the
remaining seven (Dan 7:8).
Antichrist will rise to power.
The second seal: Horseman rides a red horse set out to take peace from
earth (Rev 6:3,4)
The two-horned ram of Daniel chapter 8 (Iran and North Korea)
against other countries.
They will attack the United States,
incurring greater loss of life
The United States retaliates with a nuclear attack
c. Allies of the Middle East (Russia and China) attack the United
resulting in nuclear exchange.
New York City will be leveled by a nuclear
attack from Russia or China. As depicted in Revelation, New York City is not
whore of Babylon, but is a type of Babylon
(Rome – Dan 8:8).
The goat's horn is broken (the United States' military)
The 11th horn that rises from the goat will betray American interests and will
assimilate what remains of Russia
and China after WWIII. He
will establish himself as the economic and military leader of the
world (Rev 13:11-18).
The third seal: Horseman rides a black horse holding a pair of scales,
denoting a loaf of bread for a day’s wages (Rev 6:5,6).
Inflation will ravage the world economy.
A great depression far worse than 1929,
will spread throughout the developed world.
The forth seal: Horseman rides a pale horse, who was called death, and
Hades was following after him.
a. Nations and their governments along with their economies will
the globe, leading to worldwide political and social
will rule the streets. Many will die from famine, disease
Some will live in the wilderness and be eaten by feral
dogs. The population
of mankind will reduce by one-fourth; 1.75 billion people
b. Antichrist will speak vile things against the Jews antagonizing the
them. He will reinstitute death camps and attempt to
extermination as in the days of Hitler.
A massive worldwide revival (Joel 2:28-32; Isaiah 60; Isaiah 63)
The church will physically unite to help meet each others’ needs,
living together through a global economic crisis (Rev 6:5,6)
God will establish his two witnesses, two of the 144,000. Their
ministry will initially resemble Joseph and Daniel, benevolent spiritual
leaders throughout the Seals, having gifts and great wisdom from God (Gen 41:38-45; Dan
The two witnesses will establish the 144,000 Jews, the woman of
Revelation 12 (Rev 14:4).
The purpose of the woman is to lead the gentile church (her children)
into a global revival far greater than the glory of the early church.
This Jewish/gentile church will spiritually unite as a single entity
Satan in human flesh, the identity of the 11th horn, will react to quell
the revival, using the pope
His motive will be to raise up the pope as the antichrist and establish
his New World Religion, which will be a mixture of Catholicism and
Judaism (Rev 17:1-13).
The pope will stage his assassination and then be pseudo resurrected
from the dead (Rev 13:3).
The 11th horn (head of the monetary system) will become the false
prophet and require the world to worship the antichrist.
He will glorify the antichrist hoping to unite the world around
Catholicism and resist the Christian revival with the goal of
establishing his global monetary system around his religion (Rev
Jerusalem’s temple will be rebuilt (Dan 12-11,12). The antichrist will
make a treaty with the orthodox Jews and their neighboring Moslem
enemies to let Jerusalem rebuild their temple. He will allow them to
worship the God of the Old Testament, which will incite Israel’s
enemies against them, attempting to create confusion and discord within the
Christian revival (Dan 9:27).
The antichrist migrates to Jerusalem to become Israel’s false messiah
and mock-savior of the gentiles (Rev 11:8).
His ulterior motive for stationing his empire in
Jerusalem will be to war against the saints. He will attempt to quell the
revival by making the world worship him (equivalent to self-worship),
posing as God of the Bible (Dan 7:25; Rev 13:7).
He will enter the Jewish temple claiming to be God (2The 2:4)
The priestly Jewish zealots will physically extricate him from their
temple. In a rage the antichrist will revoke Israel’s right to perform temple services (Dan
The fifth seal – Mark of the Beast/Martyrs (Rev 13:11-18)
Global financiers (the false prophet) will unveil
his New World Order, a new global economy that he has built around the
antichrist’s (the beast's) religion
The false prophet will introduce his mark to the global economy
promising to bail out the nations of the world that join the
antichrist’s new world religion
The mark of the beast will have the effect of exposing the false
brethren within the church, causing many to
question their faith and leave the church and take the mark (Matt
Those who leave the church will be obligated to turn in Christians
before receiving the mark as a way of proving their loyalty to the beast
Tribulation of the Saints formally begins.
f. The majority of the martyrs will be killed during this time.
Jews alike will be rounded up into concentration camps and
systematically martyred for their faith in Jesus (Matt 24:9).
The sixth seal – A giant earthquake occurs as a judgment from God
against the martyrdom of His saints, violently shaking
the whole earth (Rev 6:12-17)
The seventh seal contains the seven trumpets, reflecting the
plagues of the two witnesses (Rev 8:6-13; Rev 9:1-21; Rev 11:5,6)
The two witnesses (2 of the 144,000) will epitomize the ministries of Moses and Elijah (Rev 11:1-6).
The 144,000 Jews will lead the gentile church into exile from
civilization, fleeing into the wilderness from the dragon during the 3
˝ year period of the two witnesses
There, the 144,000 will lead
her children into a special ability to pray (Rev 8:1-5; Rev
Parable of the ten virgins is played out, where the five foolish virgins
leave the assembly of the righteous in search of more oil for their
lamps (oil symbolizing the anointing; Matt 25:1-13).
The first trumpet – fire mixed with blood will destroy a third of the
earth. The shout heard in the parable of the ten virgins are the trumpets
of Revelation. Trumpets are the
voices of angels; the shout the ten virgins heard was the sound of the
first trumpet (Rev 4:1).
The second trumpet – a giant volcano will blow its top into the sea,
turning a third of it blood red
The third trumpet – a giant asteroid is roaming the solar
system on a near collision course with the earth. Astronomers will
discover it and report it to NASA, who will send up a probe intending to
nudge it off its course, but will inadvertently nudge it directly on course
with the earth. In this way man will undo himself using his technology.
The asteroid will destroy a third of the fresh water
The forth trumpet – a third of the earth’s atmosphere was darkened
by the volcano and asteroid plume
The fifth trumpet – from the smoke of the volcano came forth locusts like scorpions
The sixth trumpet – the way for Armageddon is prepared (Casualties of
the combined six trumpets will reach 1.75 billion people)
The dragon kills the two witnesses, but they are raised from the dead,
and ascend to heaven in the presence of their enemies (Rev 11,7-12)
seventh trumpet (Rev 11-15)
first resurrection; the dead in Christ will be raised imperishable
rapture will occur (1The 4:13-18). A giant
asteroid will strike the earth, creating an ash plume that will
cover the whole surface of the earth in a matter of hours. Christ
will come for His people on the ash cloud that the asteroid made. The word of God is silent

13,9-13; Joel 2,28-32; Joel 3,14-16; Mat 24,29-31; Rev 6,12-14;
population of the earth will participate in the rapture (1.75
billion people), leaving the other 1.75 billion to face the
bowls of God’s wrath. This is in accordance with the parable of the ten virgins, five
were wise and five were foolish.
Marriage Supper of the Lamb – occurs in heaven (Mat 8-11,12; Rev
19,7-9), for an undeterminable amount of
time (perhaps millenniums, but it will only seem like days on earth:
29. Those of
the five foolish virgins who repent after the rapture and are left
behind, who have not received the mark of the beast will migrate to Jerusalem, where God will protect them until
He returns to destroy His enemies.
jealousy (the same motive that hung Jesus on the cross) the armies
of the beast will attack the homeland of the antichrist
(Rome), because of his failure to quell the revival and because of
his unwillingness to share his wealth. The false prophet will
destroy Babylon (the Vatican), illustrating the self-destructive
nature of Satan (Rev 17:16-18).
31. The bowls
of God’s judgment (Revelation 16) – fallout from the asteroid
The first bowl – Malignant soars on those who received the mark of the
beast (a plague of Moses)
The second bowl – All the sea became like blood; everything in the sea
The third bowl – All fresh water became like blood (a plague of Moses)
The fourth bowl – The sun scorched the earth with fire
The fifth bowl – The throne of the beast became darkened; they gnawed
their tongues because of pain (a plague of Moses)
The sixth bowl – The Euphrates River was dried up to make way for the
armies of the east
The war of Armageddon – armies of the false prophet will surround
Jerusalem with the intent to destroy it for hosting the antichrist (Lk
21:20). It occurs just outside Jerusalem; it is essentially a war
The seventh bowl – a giant earthquake, triggered by the asteroid of
the rapture, larger than any earthquake that man has ever known
It splits Jerusalem into thirds, analogous to Jerusalem being split
between the orthodox Jews, the messianic Jews and the atheistic Jews.
The ruins of Rome are further destroyed this time by the hand of God
All the nations fall
Every mountain falls, all the islands are removed in preparation for the
A hail storm each one-hundred pounds pummels the earth (a plague of
32. The armies
of the earth commanded by the false prophet surround Jerusalem
intent on destroying it for harboring the antichrist
Christ comes and saves Jerusalem from destruction
rescues His saints hiding in the holy city from the armies of the
false prophet, similar to Pentecost. The saints of the early
church hid in the upper room and waited for the promise of His
Spirit (Act 1:10-14).
and the false prophet are thrown alive into the lake of fire (Rev
33. Satan is
bound for a thousand years, then released to deceive the nations
once more to prove that Satan is incapable of repentance and that
man is doomed to follow him (Rev 20:1-10)
week of Daniel ends
millennium begins (Rev 20:1-10) – Jesus returns with his saints to
the Mount of Olives.
36. Satan is
released to deceive the nations once more to prove the reprobate
nature of Satan and man’s tendency to follow him. The enemies of
God rally against Christ’s throne, rising from the broad plane of
the earth for their last hurrah; their numbers are like the sand on
the seashore. The rebellion is crushed and Satan is thrown into the
lake of fire (Rev 20:10)
