Jesus fulfilled hundreds of prophecies when He came the first time. He will fulfill "every jot and tittle" when He comes the second time.   A "jot and tittle" are accents over Hebrew letters. He will fulfill every accent over every letter in every word He spoke to us in His Word.  Since Jesus fulfilled many scriptures when He came the first time, it behooves us to know what He said about His second coming.  He will fulfill these prophesies as well.


Here is a list of a few of the prophecies Jesus fulfilled the first time He came
 
 Since Jesus already fulfilled these prophecies at His First Coming, we know he will fulfill the second coming prophecies as well.  What are the Choices we must all make at His Second Coming?

What are the prophecies that WILL be fulfilled?  What will happen and what will the world's choices be?

The next thing that will happen will be the rapture.

Could the War that ensues be the coming invasion of Iraq?   If the rapture is after post-Saddam Iraq, this could be the scenario .
We know that the horrors of Revelation begin with Rev 6:2 and "conquering."  See also overthrowing 3 kings .


The rapture will be followed by a period that is 7 years in length.  The seven years will be divided into 2 halfs of 42 months each. Each month is 30 days in length per the Jewish calendar, making each half 30 x 42 = 1260 days.  Each half is also referred to as times (2), time (1), and a half a time; thus, 3 and one half years.  The last half of this period is called "Great Tribulation."  The entire 7 years is called a "week" by Daniel's prophecy in Daniel 9.   There were 70 "weeks" determined for the Jews, each lasting 7 years.  
The 70th week of Daniel is about to begin. The entire seven years is called "the time of Jacob's trouble."  In the last chapter of Daniel, Daniel is told to "seal the book even to the time of the end."   In Revelation 5:5 Jesus Christ is seen as opening the seals: "the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed...to loose the seven seals ."



WHAT HAPPENS DURING THIS 7 YEARS

50 % of the world's population are going to die in just 2 judgments alone. The first judgment is going to kill 25%, the second judgment (1/3 of whose left), i.e, another 25%. There is going to be Nuclear War and 1/3 of all trees will be burned and ALL green grass .

Revelation 6:8   And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Revelation 8:7   The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

Revelation 9:15-18   And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.  And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.   By these three was the third part of men killed , by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.

The water supply will be poisoned, the men will seek death and not find it.

Revelation 8:10-11   And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;    And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

(Many believe this is nuclear fallout.  Fire, smoke, and brimstone!  Brimstone is a sulphur derivative.  The smell after a nuclear detonation?  Sulphur.)

Revelation 9:6   And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.

Hailstones will fall weighing 100 pounds each.

Revelation 16:21   And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent : and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

A "talent" is approximately 100 pounds.  One of the distinguishing results of a nuclear blast is the falling of HAIL due to the rapidly rising heated air.


Men will be killed by famine, pestilence, and disease, and animals.

Revelation 6:8   And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death , and with the beasts of the earth.


When a  nuclear detonation occurs there are TWO blasts: the original OUTWARD blast and the resultant vacuum causes an INWARD blast just like "the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together."

Revelation 6:13-17   And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.   And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.   And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:   For the great day of his wrath is come ; and who shall be able to stand?


At the battle of Armageddon (in the valley of Jezreel) the blood will be "to the horses bridle" for miles.

Revelation 14:20   And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles , by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.



It will take seven months to find all the bodies and bury them (in the Magog invasion before the tribulation.)

Ezekiel 39:12   And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.

Ezekiel 39:14   And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.


THE CHOICE

The "computer chip" marking system will be set up and those that accept it will spend eternity in Hell. Those that reject the mark (and accept Christ) will be beheaded if found. if they manage to escape the guillotine, they will not be allowed to buy or sell anything and will starve to death.  This CHOICE is called "THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION ."

Revelation 3:10   Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation , which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth .

What is the temptation?

If you are on earth, you will be FORCED to worship a man-

Revelation 13:8   And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.


There will be a false prophet who will deceive people into worshipping  the man-

Revelation 13:12   And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.


The false prophet will cause an image of the man to be made and he will make the image SPEAK and KILL those who do not worship the man.

Revelation 13:13-14   And he doeth great wonders , so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,   And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

Revelation 13:15   And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.


The false prophet will cause EVERYONE on earth to receive a mark, without which NO ONE can buy or sell.

Revelation 13:16-17   And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:   And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark , or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.


If you do not accept the mark, you will starve because you can not buy food.  Furthermore, those that reject the mark will be taken to the guillotine and be beheaded.  The choice will be clear worship the man and receive the mark (or die).  Those that refuse the mark will have a reason to accept death willingly- they will accept Jesus CHrist as their savior.

Revelation 20:4   And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast , neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.


If you DO accept the mark and worship the man and are able to buy food, what will be the consequences?

Revelation 14:9   And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

Revelation 14:10-11   The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever : and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

In addition to the ETERNAL consequences above, the following will happen as well:

Revelation 16:2   And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.


So, given this scenario, what are our CHOICES:

After the Rapture :
A) Take the mark to survive and then suffer in Hell for eternity.

B) Refuse the mark and accept Christ and be beheaded or starve to death.

Before the Rapture:
C) Accept Christ today
.

Trust Jesus Christ ONLY today as the one who saved you.



Having NO merits of my own (my "righteousnesses are filthy rags") and I am NOTHING but dirt, but I have been redeemed by the blood of Christ on Calvary.

My OPINION on anything is DUNG!

But, I will sleep well tonight knowing that the outcome is certain and the victory is ours through the finished work of the Son of God who left heaven's glory and became a man to DIE in YOUR place.

Call on Him today while you can repent .


There will be people who will later seek repentance but not find it.  Do not be counted among them:

Revelation 9:20   And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:    Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

Revelation 16:8-9   And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.    And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.

Revelation 16:10-11   And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,   And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.



Red China Will Invade

Revelation 16:12   And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.

Revelation 16:14   For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

Revelation 16:16   And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

Revelation 16:20   And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.



Jesus Christ Physically Returns to the Earth
Revelation 19:19   And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.

Revelation 19:20   And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

Revelation 19:21   And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.




1) All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.
2) Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved.
3) He that hath the Son Hath life; he that hath not the Son, hath not life.


 I am just telling you what God said. The choice is yours.

Either believe God or do not believe God.
