Signs That Precede Christ’s Return
  1. False Prophets Working Signs and Wonders (Matthew 24:5; 23-24, Mark 13:22)
  2. Wars and Natural Disasters (Matthew 24:6-8)
  3. Tribulation (Matthew 24:9-13, 15-22, Mark 13:7-8; 19-20, Luke 21:20-24)
  4. The Gospel Preached to all Nations (Matthew 24:14, Mark 13:10)
  5. Signs in the Heavens (Matthew 24:29-30, Mark 13:24-25, Luke 21:25-27)
  6. The Coming of the Man of Sin and the Rebellion (Rev. 13, 1 John 2:18)
  7. The Salvation of Israel (Romans 11:25-26) One covenant through Christ! John Haggai is wrong, he believes in two covenants.
The Rapture

1 Thessalonians 4:15-18 Matthew 24:37-40  

1 Thessalonians 4:15-18
Matthew 24:36-42
John 14:3
There will be a sudden, personal, and visible, and bodily return of Christ.
Rapture- is an eschatological concept of certain Christians, particularly within branches of North American evangelicalism, consisting of an end time event when all Christian believers who are alive will rise along with the resurrected dead believers into Heaven and join Christ. Some adherents believe this event is predicted and described in Paul’s First Epistle to the Thessalonians in the Bible, where he uses the Greek harpazo (ἁρπάζω), meaning to snatch away or seize. Though it has been used differently in the past, the term is now often used by certain believers to distinguish this particular event from the Second Coming of Jesus Christ to Earth mentioned in Second Thessalonians, Gospel of Matthew, First Corinthians, and Revelation, usually viewing it as preceding the Second Coming and followed by a thousand year millennial kingdom.
Three main views of when the rapture will take place for the Church
Postribulationism– The idea that the church has always been in the Tribulation because, during its entire existence, it has suffered persecution and trouble. The Tribulation is not a future event but an ongoing present reality.
Midtribulationism- The idea that the Rapture of the church will occur at the midpoint of the seven years of Tribulation.
Pretribulationism- Christians are “raptured” out of the world before the tribulation period begins. Pre-tribulation rapture theology originated in the eighteenth century, with the Puritan preachers Increase and Cotton Mather, and was popularized extensively in the 1830s by John Nelson Darby. The rapture is not mentioned in Revelation, but there is no mention of the church after chapter 3. Many will take this silence and a passage of Daniel 9 referring to the “seventieth week” is the week of the tribulation.

Millennial Reign

Revelation 20:1-10
Millennial Reign– Some see this as a future earthly theocracy by which Christ will rule over the nations for a thousand years. Others see it as a time during which Christ will rule earth from heaven through the life-changing power of the Gospel. Still others look at it in another way. The different interpretations are based off of Revelation 20:1-10.
Four Main Views of the Millennial Reign of Christ
Dispensational Premillennialism– that Christ will come before a seven-year period of intense tribulation to take His church (living and dead) into heaven. After this period of fulfillment of divine wrath, He shall then return to rule from a holy city (i.e., the New Jerusalem) over the earthly nations for one thousand years. After these thousand years, Satan, who was bound up during Christ’s earthly reign, will be loosed to deceive the nations, gather an army of the deceived, and take up to battle against the Lord.
Premillennialism– place the return of Christ just before the millennium and just after a time of great apostasy and tribulation. After the millennium, Satan will be loosed and Gog and Magog (Ezek) will rise against the kingdom of God; this will be immediately followed by the final judgment. Most premillennialists divide the rapture and second coming into two events.
Postmillennialism– believes that the millennium is an era (not a literal thousand years) during which Christ will reign over the earth, not from an literal and earthly throne, but through the gradual increase of the Gospel and its power to change lives. After this gradual Christianization of the world, Christ will return and immediately usher the church into their eternal state after judging the wicked. This is called postmillennialism because, by its view, Christ will return after the millennium.
Amillennialism– believes that the Kingdom of God was inaugurated at Christ’s resurrection at which point he gained victory over both Satan and the Curse. Christ is even now reigning at the right hand of the Father over His church. After this present age has ended, Christ will return and immediately usher the church into their eternal state after judging the wicked.
