Decision Phase Overview

Primary References: Revelation 11:18-14:20

The Decision phase is a period where people’s hearts are tested to separate the tares (the wicked) from the wheat (the righteous). This phase starts just after Jesus’ coronation and ends when the wheat (the righteous) is safely in heaven. Key to this separation process are the actions of the unholy trinity (the dragon, the beast, and the false prophet) who implement systems of worship and commerce requiring total obedience to the beast.

This period starts with the saints receiving their riches reward. Afterwards, wise Jews flee to a wilderness place prepared for them. As they flee, Satan and his legions attacked God’s hosts in heaven to prevent Jesus’ assumption of power. Michael and his angels intervene and defeat Satan and exile him and his army to earth where they remain for the remainder of the great tribulation. Satan’s arrival on earth increases the urgency of the Jew’s fleeing who start an emergency airlift. In his anger, Satan attempted to destroy the Jews in the wilderness but God responded by sealing the place and dissipating the floodwaters.

Following this, the beast (the antichrist) ascends to power and introduces the false prophet to the world scene. Now this unholy trinity shares power and acts with one mind to ensnare people’s souls and lead the world in open rebellion against God. To this end, the false prophet call fire down from heaven, erects an image of the beast, gives life to the image, enacts laws requiring its worship, and creates an oppressive monetary system, the mark of the beast to control people’s financial transactions. The image is Daniel’s abomination of desolation and wise Jews living outside the sealed place flee to the mountains.

The image of the beast, its worship, and the beast’s mark form the basis of the decision phase of the timeline. Now, three angels preach to everyone worldwide. Two of three angels (the first and last) declare to everyone on earth their need to decide whether to serve God or Satan. The second angel declares God’s judgment on Babylon and her final fall. While people’s decisions continue throughout the great tribulation, the decision phase of the narrative ends with the wheat and tare harvest followed by an angel tossing the tares into God’s winepress of wrath. People’s moment of truth has come: no longer could they defer their decisions. Rejection of Satan and the beast carries an almost certain death sentence while rejection of God carries the certainty of the lake of fire’s second death.

Milepost 41: Gospel preached worldwide

The worship of both the beast and his image along with the introduction of his mark brings a final ultimatum from God. His time of longsuffering (2 Peter 3:9) has ended and He will no longer afford people the luxury of deferring their spiritual decisions.
