Satan throughly corrupts the earth   but God starts over. (Genesis 3-6) Satan remains free  to roam the earth and return to heaven on occasion. (Job 1)  There was war in heaven     when Jesus was born.  Satan was hurled to earth   for good & vows revenge       on followers of Jesus.                    (Rev.12) Satan bound  1000-years Satan thrown into burning sulfur. (Rev 20) Persian     Greek          Roman rule  Babylon Revelation 7:14 “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” Jesus returns for His bride. Satan vs. God created by: (Rev 20) Revelation 7:9 After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude  that no one could count, from  every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes  and were holding palm branches in their hands. Revelation 19:7-8 7 Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready.  8 Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear.  Revelation 19:14 14 The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Rapture  about 2300 days later Armageddon  “His bride” and “the armies” are wearing the same. Revelation 7:17 For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water.  And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. Sounds like “following” to me. wedding supper of the Lamb “Wedding Supper” in Heaven before returning for battle (*a rare time when ‘many’ humans will occupy heaven and earth at the same time) Meanwhile, perilous times on earth Rise of the Beast Rapture  Armageddon  1000-years reign (Rev 20)      I developed this scaled-timeline because a picture is worth a thousand words.  It attempts to put in perspective God’s ultimate plan and control over the earth.  Obviously, not everything is included but I tried to focus on God’s relationship with Satan, Israel, Christians, and Muslims, because that’s what it’s all about. “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” (Ephesians 6:12) 1. My interpretations of Daniel 11 and the Seals are unique and original, and show     how God’s prophecies fill in the last 2000-years, so God’s timeline is continuous a. The correct meaning of Daniel 11 describes Islam, which falls in the range     of Satan’s “revenge” (Rev 12).  b. Jeremiah prophesied that Israel would be scattered and re-assembled.      (Jeremiah 16:14-15)  Yet, only the correct meaning of the Seals reveal ‘how’     God planned to accomplish that. (revolts - money - Holocaust) [Seals 2-4] 2. Another interesting fact is that Noah’s life-span over-lapped with Abraham’s     by 58 years!  And Shem actually out-lived Abraham by 35 years! (math below)     My point is: Even before it was written, God’s creation and flood story could     have been passed to Abraham by someone who was actually on the Ark.  click verses for pop-up text Note: This timeline is also on the Homepage with further breakdowns.
