High Level Timeline Overview

The prophetic timeline consists of four major chronological periods:

1) The Church age (approximately 2000 years)

2) The Tribulation (seven years, perhaps longer depending on transition times)

3) Jesus' millennial reign (1000 years)

4) Eternity: new heavens and new earth (immeasurable thousands of years)

The shortest of these four periods is the tribulation, which lasts only seven-years but is so full of prophetic events that it contains four subdivisions:

  • Transition period of uncertain duration starting with the rapture
  • Tribulation period (first three and a half years)
  • Mid-tribulation (a short transition period
  • Great tribulation (last three and a half years)

The next shortest period, Jesus' millennial reign, also has short transition periods. The first is an entry transition and starts at the end of the great tribulation and continues through several judgments until the normal daily operation of the millennial reign is setup. A final transition occurs between the millennial reign and eternity as the present heavens and earth vanish and final judgments are pronounced. The following figure shows the chronological layout of these four major periods and their subdivisions.

Overlaying this chronology are Revelation's seven major themes: preparation; redemption, coronation, decision, subjugation, dominion, and perfection. The first theme, preparation, includes the complete church age and is a time of preparation for Jesus' return. Its distinguishing characteristics are the propagation of the gospel of Christ, a time of Jewish distress, the preparation of the world for the fulfillment of tribulation prophecies, Jesus' preparation for the arrival of His bride with her bridal party, and Jesus' return. The earth's redemption theme follows the preparation theme and is the time when Jesus redeems the earth by breaking each of the seven seals on the mysterious book (Revelation 6-8). The coronation theme with its seven trumpet judgments (Revelation 8-11) follows the earth's redemption theme. Each trumpet leads up to Jesus' coronation as King of Kings and Lords of Lords, which occurs after the last of the seven trumpets is blown. His coronation ushers in the most tumultuous period the world ever endures: the periods covered by the decision and subjugation themes. During this time, the earth's remaining inhabitants must decide whether they will serve God as seven vial judgments bring all people and dominions into subjugation under Jesus' ruling authority. Jesus' return starts the transition into the dominion theme featuring Jesus' thousand-year reign the whole earth. A transition period consisting of the destruction of the existing creation and humanity's final judgments leads into Revelation's final theme, perfection. The perfection theme brings everlasting, perfect creations that are free from sin and its effects.
