A new world order rises to power.
“If those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short” (Matthew 24:22; EVS). The stress and destruction (tribulation) that comes on the earth because of the New World Order is such that no one will survive the devastation; it is for this reason that God sends His son, Jesus. Jesus gathers His people together (what we call the rapture).
After Jesus gathers His sheep, the wrath of God is poured out because of the injustice done by the New World Order against His people, and because of the destruction they’ve done to His earth:
“Indeed God considers it just to repay with affliction those who afflict you, and to grant relief to you who are afflicted as well as to us, when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with his mighty angels in flaming fire, inflicting vengeance on those who do not know God and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. They will suffer the punishment of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might, when he comes on that day to be glorified in his saints, and to be marveled at among all who have believed” (2 Thessalonians 1:6-10; EVS). And
“The nations raged,
but your wrath came,
and the time for the dead to be judged,
and for rewarding your servants, the prophets and saints,
and those who fear your name,
both small and great,
and for destroying the destroyers of the earth” (Revelation 11:18; EVS).
After the wrath of God is poured out, Jesus sets up His millennial kingdom on the earth. All nations are subject to Him. There will still be those that never made Jesus lord of their lives left on the earth at this time; though most of the world population will have died.
At the end of the millennial reign, Satan will be loosed from prison. He will do as he’s always done, that is to deceive the world. Those that were part of the rapture won’t be deceived, but those that were born during the millennial reign will have to decide to choose Jesus or the deception that Satan brings. They will have the same opportunity that we have now.
When everyone has chosen, then God destroys this heaven and earth by fire, the Great White Throne Judgement takes place, and then God creates a new heaven and a new earth.
Eternity continues. Where do you choose to be?
Stay strong and prepared!
