God’s warning against opposing Israel – Ezekiel 25: 6 & 7

Blessing and Curse – Genesis 12:3

  Close In to Israel

  Holy Spirit’s influence gone –

2 Thess. 2:7

Destruction of Damascus -Isaiah 17:1

The Tower of Syene – Ezekiel 29 & 30 (why Egypt is not in Ezekiel 38 & 39)

Close in War with Israel – Psalm 83

Elam’s destruction which leads to the next war with Israel – Jeremiah 49: 34 and following

Far Away from Israel

 War with Israel from those far away – Ezekiel 38 & 39

The fear of God as well as Israel leads to the Prelude –

2 Thess. 2:9-12



Immediate Prelude to The Start of theTribulation

 Antichrist’s rise in the End Times – Daniel 8: 23-25

Peace Treaty that antichrist creates to protect world from Israel and their God – Daniel 9:27 – very start of Tribulation which lasts seven years

Rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem – Daniel 9:27; Matt. 24:15;

2 Thess. 2:3-4


Rapture                                                                                       The Tribulation

1 Thess. 4:13-18                                                                                  Revelation 4

1 Cor. 15:51-58                                                                                   and following

John 14:1-3

2 Thess. 2:1-3


Bema Seat                                                                                    Time of Jacob’s

1 Cor. 3:11-15                                                                                  Trouble – Jer. 30

2 Cor. 5:10


Daniel 9:25,26 – 70 “Weeks” prophecy where Christ “cut off” after 69 weeks of years (483 years) leaving the last week, which is seven years of the Tribulation, yet to be fulfilled “Time of Jacob’s Trouble (Jeremiah 30)

Ezekiel 25:6&7 – God’s warning to Moab, but applicable to all who rejoice in evil against Israel

Genesis 12:3 – God will bless those that bless Israel and curse those that curse Israel

2 Thessalonians 2:3,6.7 – The Holy Sprit’s influence through Christians removed  in the Rapture so that antichrist can ascend without opposition

1 Thessalonians 1:10 – God will keep us from the wrath of His Son

Revelation 3:10 – God will keep us “out of” the wrath to come

Isaiah 26:17-21 – hide yourself (in the Lord) until the fury has passed by (OT wrath avoidance)

Luke 21:36 – Watch and pray to be counted worthy to escape the wrath and stand before the Lord

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 – The Rapture, the dead in Christ first, then we who remain

1 Corinthians 15:51-58 – Rapture to make the corruptible incorruptible

1 Corinthians 3:11-15 – wood, hay, stubble burned up; gold, silver, precious stones remain

2 Corinthians 5:10 – Bema Judgment Seat of Christ – rewards for His Church

Isaiah 17:1 – Damascus a ruinous heap probably by Israel and tactical nuke

Ezekiel 29 and 30 – The Tower of Syene – Aswan Dam today and destruction that will devastate Egypt (entire Nile Valley flooded with nuclear contaminated water from the nuclear weapon-caused destruction) and keep them out of the Ezekiel 38 & 39 coalition against Israel

Psalm 83 – Close In enemies of Israel manifest exactly as today – first coalition to attack Israel and be totally defeated resulting in the “Israel at peace” needed for the Ezekiel war to take place

Jeremiah 49:34-39 – the destruction of Elam which is the Iranian coastline of the Persian Gulf where their nuclear installation of Bushehr is located – this destruction by Israel might trigger the Ezekiel 38 & 39 war

Ezekiel 38 & 39 – The 2nd coalition war against Israel from those far away: Russia, Iran, Turkey, Libya, Ethiopia, and others which will result in the elimination of Islam and result in strong delusion

2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 – Strong delusion to not see God in all that is taking place so that the antichrist can rise

Daniel 8: 23-28 – the rise of the cunning and very destructive antichrist in the end times, in the latter days

Daniel 9:27 – antichrist sees his opportunity to gain recognition and dominance by posing a peace treaty that primarily assures the world that Israel and Israel’s God will leave them alone, now after seeing all the Psalm 83 countries and the Ezekiel 38 & 39 countries totally defeated, thus starting the Tribulation and antichrist’s constantly increasing power lasting seven years and ending in Christ’s Second Coming
