Scripture Timeline





Scripture Timeline - The purpose of this website is to explain and simplify the time-line of events that are yet to come as described in the Bible. Do not be confused by worldy views of these events; study the word.

Through a careful study of scripture, there are found to be seven main events or periods yet to occur:

  1. Believers caught up with Jesus Christ - the Rapture
  2. Great Tribulation
  3. Jesus Christ returns to Earth
  4. Jesus Christ Kingdom on Earth
  5. Satan loosed for last time
  6. Great White Throne
  7. New Heavens and New Earth

Each event is described in three sections: characteristics, description, and scripture references. Please read the scripture references to get a better understanding of the event. This is not a commentary, even though the author makes some observations, it is based on scripture reading and studying. There may be some overlap of information in each section. All scripture references are from the King James Version. A link table on the bottom of this page will guide you to all the events and new scripture subjects covered in this website.

I pray this website will give you a good and clear understanding of what is to come. Remember continue reading and studying the word of God. Continue praying for understanding of these events and how it can greatly enrich your relation with God. Let the words of scripture speak to you, rather then letting worldly views fill the void.

Note: A few observations about terms used by books, literature, and people speaking on scriptural prophesy I would like to share with you. Some terms are not found in the bible at all.
Rapture - refers to people who make up the body of Christ on earth being caught up to meet Jesus in the air; they are physically removed from the earth; the term was labeled over time in the church, but essentially means caught up.
Millennium- Christs one thousand-year reign on earth [Term never found in bible]
Church- refers to body of Christ; believers who have accepted Christ as their savior
End of the world- there are ends of ages or periods, but this is a world without end
Anti-Christ- often referred to as the evil one, ruler or leader during the great tribulation that deceives the world and fights against Christ (more in Event 2);also referred to as man of sin and son of perdition (death);anti means against, opposite, or counterfeit of Jesus Christ
Tribulation Period- time of trouble on earth proceeding Christs return; great tribulation
Saints- believers in Jesus Christ during this present time
Tribulation Saints- people who turned to Jesus Christ during the great tribulation
Battle of Armageddon- Christ as King defeats all the kings of the earth that are prepared to fight Him; they are backed by Satan; a term that is widely misused as a battle or event that will destroy the earth and its inhabitants

Thank you for reading this website. Please return for updates and more studies in scripture.

Present Time:
The Church - Body of Christ

-Believers of Jesus Christ present on earth
  They are the body of Christ and saints of this age
  They are saved by Gods grace only
-Non-believers present on earth
  They are not saved and have rejected God
-Persecution of Christians and Jewish race
-Jewish people scattered through out the world

Christ’s death and resurrection has saved the sinner; this is our salvation. It is Gods grace and free gift for all people and we cannot add or take away from it. The Holy Spirit guides us and makes intercessions for the believers. Unfortunately many reject this gift and are not saved. They have persecuted the believers throughout this age. Their eternity is not certain. Satan is the prince of this age in this world and roams in spiritual form to confuse mankind. Man wrestles with this invisible force, but the believer overcomes.

This present period, which started when Jesus sent his Holy Spirit to all at Pentecost, is often referred as the church period. Believers today make up the real church - not a physical building, but spiritual. Old Testament prophets did not see this period, but its mystery was given to the apostle Paul and written for us in his letters – New Testament. John, in the Revelation of Jesus Christ, writes letters to various churches of his time. The letters also represent church periods throughout this period and promises those who overcome will be with Him forever.

Believers are people of all nations and languages.

The nation of Israel is not cast out by God. Though they may live in blindness they are not forgotten.  Romans 9 through 11 are a history of the nation of Israel and its present condition.



Scripture Reference:

Body of Christ - 1 Corinthians 12: 12-13:

For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.  

For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

Saints – Ephesians 2:18-22:

For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:

 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

Gentiles – Ephesians 3:6

That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:

In Christ – Galatians 3: 26-28

For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

Saved by Grace – Ephesians 2:8

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God


Romans 11 – The people of Israel today

Rom 11:1  I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid.

Rom 11:25  For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

Rom 11:26  And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

Rom 11:27  For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
