STEP BY STEP GUIDE TO THE END OF THE WORLD, ACCORDING TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, FROM THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW
STEP 1. WARS, CALAMITIES, PLAGUES, EARTHQUAKES, VOLCANIC ERUPTIONS
Matthew 24:6 “You will hear of wars and romours of war; do not be alarmed. for this must happen, but the end will not be yet. For nation will fight against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines (or plagues) and earthquakes here and there. All this is the beginning of birthpangs.”
When World War III erupts very soon, take note, it is not yet the end of the world, but only the “beginning of sorrows”. There will be earthquakes everywhere, even simultaneous volcanic eruptions. Then there will be famine as well in many countries. No rapture will take place, so even the elects will witness all these tragedies and calamities. This is not yet the Tribulation Period as mentioned in the Book of Revelation.
The reason for the earthquakes is because the black armies of Yahweh from the underworld are being summoned by Abaddon and they will start emerging when the war erupts. Remember Lord of the Rings’ Army of the Dead?
STEP 2. MANY FALSE PROPHETS WILL ARISE
Matthew 24:11 “And then many will fall away; men will betray one another and hate one another. Many false prophets will arise; they will deceive many, and with increase of lawlessness, love in most men will grow cold.”
When the wars and calamities take place, many will panic and as a result, many will “fall away” which means they will abandon their religious beliefs and practices and turn into lawless people. People killing each other for the sake of survival. Many false prophets will arise to take advantage of the confusions among people, they will make profit out of them by proclaiming salvation through their own doctrines, religious materials on sale, people flocking in many churches therefore increasing profitability of religious enterprises.
STEP 3. THE GOOD NEWS OF THE KINGDOM WILL BE SPREAD TO THE WHOLE WORLD
Matthew 24:14 “This Good News of the kingdom will be proclaimed to the whole world as a witness to all the nations. And then the end will come.”
In spite of all the false prophets and the spread of false doctrines, the Truth of the Gospel, the Good News of GOD’s grace, will still spread among the elect Gentiles (not including the 144,000 elect Jews), so all of them will be enlightened, before the end of the world will come. The elect Gentiles will be “raptured/translated” in order for them to be saved from the coming Tribulation. The rest of humankind and fallen angels will suffer during these terrible times.
To the elects, this is what the Father instructs us to do during this period:
Isaiah 26:20-21 Go into your rooms, my people,
shut your doors behind you.
Hide yourselves a little while
until the wrath has passed.
For, see, Yahweh will soon come out of his dwelling,
to punish all the inhabitants of earth for their crimes.
The earth will reveal its blood
and no longer hide its stain.
STEP 4. THE ANTI-CHRIST REVEALED
Matthew 24:15-18 “So when you see the disastrous abomination, of which the prophet Daniel spoke, set up in the Holy Place (let the reader understand), then those in Judaea must escape to the mountains; if a man is on the housetops, he must not come down to collect his belongins; if a man is in the fields, he must not turn back to fetch his cloak.
So when the “disastrous abomination” who is the real Anti-Christ, the “son of perdition”, reveals his true identity with all his power, standing in the “Holy Place” right after the rapture of the elect Gentiles, the tribulation period follows. When Jesus said that those on the housetops must not come down, and those in the fields must not turn back, it means everything you possess will no longer matter during that time – for there is nowhere else to go for those who will be punished by GOD. That is why Jesus kept reminding us not to love anything in this world for everything will come to pass, and for us to store treasures in heaven, not on earth, for this will also vanish.
Matthew 6:19-21 Do not store up treasures for yourselves on earth, where moths and woodworms destroy them and thieves can break in and steal. But store up treasures for yourselves in heaven, where neither moth nor woodworms destroy them and thieves cannot break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
STEP 5. GREAT TRIBULATION BEGINS
Matthew 24:19-22 “Alas for those with child, or with babies at the breast, when those days come! Pray that you will not have to escape in winter or on sabbath. For then there will be great distress such as, until now, since the world began, there never has been, nor ever will be again. And if that time had not been shortened, no one would have survived; but shortened that time shall be, for the sake of those who are chosen.”
Jesus mentioned those with child or babies and expressed His pity on these innocent ones because they will have to face all these terrible times, which had never occurred since the beginning of the world. How terrible this will be indeed! But the Lord had shortened this period for the sake of the elect Jews who were not included in the rapture. Many false prophets will again arise, including fallen angels, to show signs and miracles to deceive the people.
This period is where the seven bowls of plaque and seven trumpets in the Book of Revelation will apply.
STEP 6. THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST
Matthew 24:29-31 “Immediately after the distress of those days the sun will be darkened, the moon will lose its brightness, the stars will fall from the sky and the powers of heaven will be shaken. And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven; then too all the people of the earth will beat their breasts; and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet to gather his chosen from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”
This is what Isaiah 13:10 meant when the sun shall be dark when it rises and the moon will not shed her light. The “powers of heaven” and the “stars” refers to the fallen angels and armies of the anti-Christ. This is when the elect Jews, the remnants of his chosen ones, will be gathered and rescued.
STEP 7. ARMAGEDDON BEGINS
Read Isaiah 24 and Revelation Chapters 19 – 20 for chronological order of events. There will be the first battle between sons of light and sons of darkness. Satan and the Anti-Christ will be bound in the pit for a thousand years, while Jesus Christ reigns on earth with His saints. After the thousand years, Satan and the Anti-Christ will be releaased to face the final battle between light and darkness.
After which, the end of this world – when this earth is thrown into the everlasting fire of the sun together with all the forsaken souls of men and angels to be tormented forever and ever.
Matthew 24:34-36 “I tell you solemnly, before this generation has passed away all these things will have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. But as for that day and hour, nobody knows it, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, no one but the Father only.”
