Worldwide events clearly indicate the soon return Of Jesus Christ.

In Matthew 24, Jesus shared two events in one – the destruction of the Jerusalem temple in AD70 and the events leading upto the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

The above chart features both historical key events and events that will occur in the near future:

Past Events:

  • 1798 – End of Papal rule (Papal church + state of 1,260 years from 538 AD to 1798 ends) = The beginning of the “time of the end” (Rev 12:6).
  • Upto 1844 – The proclammation of the First and Second Angels Messages (Rev 14:6-8).
  • From 1844 – The proclammation of the First, Second and Third Angels Messages (Rev 14:6-12).
  • 1929 – The beginning of the healing of the Papal wound (Vatican State formed via Lateran Treaty = Papal Church + State recommences. See Rev 13:3).

Future Events:

  • The USA will implement a National Sunday Law (i.e. “mark of the beast“) followed by international Sunday Laws (Rev 13:11 – 18).
  • Outpouring of the latter rain and the sealing of God’s saints occur after the Sunday laws have been issued (Acts 3:19; James 5:7).
  • The “little time of trouble” (the time between the issuing of the Sunday laws and the close of probation).
  • Close of probation – Jesus ceases His intercession in the most holy place of the heavenly sanctuary as our High Priest (Rev 22:11, 12; Lev 16).
  • Jacob’s time of trouble – the seven last plagues are poured upon the earth (Rev 16).
  • Special resurrection of those who have died in the faith of the third angels’ message from 1844 (Dan 12:2).
  • The Second Coming Of Jesus Christ (Matt 24:27; 2 Peter 3:9-12).
  • The Millennium – while the redeemed are taken to heaven for a thousand years with Jesus, the Devil and his demons await their final punishment upon the desolate earth (Rev 20:1-5, 12-15).
  • The third coming of Jesus Christ, with the redeemed and the New Jerusalem. The wicked are destroyed. God creates a new heaven and a new earth (Rev 21:1, 2;  Zech 14:4).
