Here is the chronology in a nutshell. We will take us from the elections in November of 2012 through to the beginning of eternal life in heaven. Then, we'll show you the details behind this chronology.
My educated opinion (based on combining headlines with Scripture) is that the events of 2012 begin to unfold after the November elections.
Jesus told us that we shall not know the DAY or the HOUR, but we WILL know the SEASON. Jesus said, “This generation shall not pass away until ALL is fulfilled.” A generation is 43 to 46 years (read my articles for proof. Israel began to "blossom" after they owned East and West Jerusalem. That ohappened in June of 1967. Prior to that Israel did not own all of Jerusalem. Forty three years (one generation) brings us to the year 2010 or 2013.
By 2012/2013, there will likely be a New World Order and only one “Global Government” with new laws, new court system headed up by Islamic clerics using “Sharia Law”, a single currency will be in place, a single military (all nukes will be banned), and there will be a single “International Civilian Police Force”.
PROGRESSIVES and ISLAM will share power in this Global Government. There are ten nations who form the cabinet of the newly elected PROGRESSIVE one-world leader, who I am positive will be Barack Obama.
Between 2012 and 2013, Israel will perform a preemptive strike against Iran. Temple has to be built by Israel on the top of Mount Zion BEFORE all prophecy is fulfilled, including both halves of the “Tribulation period” consisting of 3.5 years of great prosperity ….then the RAPTURE takes place, and this is followed by 3.5-3.8 years (according to the Old Testament Prophet, Daniel) of horrendous times upon the earth as God unleashes His seven angels to do their destructive punishments to all those who remain, and who remain defiant and who do not trust Christ as Savior at that time.
After Iran (Islam) takes the hit from Israel, Israel will throw all Arabs out of Israel, including off the Holy Mount Zion Then, the temple will begin being built where the Dome of the Rock (Arab controlled now) is located. This should happen around 2012 or before.
The “Global Government” will come to power in 2012/2013…around the time the U.S. elections would have taken place ordinarily. The U.N. will create the situation whereby a Global Government, headed by one man and a ten-nation cabinet, will come into power. The new Global Government will be relocated to the Green Zone of Baghdad, Iraq…a 104-acre self-sufficient site that now exists. It’s all in the book or the article that I have written on Faithwriters.com or ChristianDailyBread.com. Baghdad today is Babylon of the Old Testament.
A peace treaty will be signed between this New World Order – “Global Government” and Israel, but will be broken the moment the new temple is finished…and desecrated. I believe this will occur on a Sabbath day (Saturday) in the middle of 2017 if a generation is 46 years. See my article on the "Rapture of 2015".
Rapture takes place. (I believe in mid-summer of 2015 to 2017). Jesus does NOT touch earth at this time, but appears in the clouds to take His saints home…and the Holy Spirit is removed as well. The Holy Spirit lives within born-again believers. The second half of the tribulation (the last 3.5 to 3.8 years) takes place. Mid 2015-2020.
This time is horrific for several reasons: First, the Holy Spirit…the one who has restrained Satan until then…is gone from the earth…as are those who have trusted Christ as Lord and Savior.
Those who remain will face evil – the likes of which has not been seen on the earth before. Satan is in full control for those 3.5-3.8 years. Imagine it!
Around 2020 (Maybe God likes 2020 because it connotes perfect vision 20/10, and we should have seen all of this coming because God told us it would), Jesus gathers his angels and saints to return to earth – Mount Zion.
Jesus and His angels cast Satan into the pit for 1,000 years.
Jesus and the saints occupy the earth for 1,000 years.
After the “Millenium”, the earth and 1st heaven around the earth is burned with fervent heat. Melted to cleanse it from all sin.
The sea is no more.
New Jerusalem is let down from the third heaven.
God then releases Satan from the bottomless pit - for a short time because God has one final thing to accomplish with Satan before He casts him into the lake of fire….along with his followers. This is known as the “Second Death”.
Satan believes he and his armies outnumber God’s saints and angels. China and Russia are dominant opposing forces arrayed with their vast armies against Jesus and His saints. They surround Jerusalem and Israel where Jesus is the reigning King …along with His angels and saints.
Satan believes his own lies - that he can beat God this time, whereas, he could not for lack of a larger army when he tried it in heaven…just before God tossed him down to earth…just before Adam was created.
The final “battle of Armageddon” is waged between Jesus, His angels and saints against Satan, and those who chose to reject Christ…thereby, by default, became followers of Satan. Those amount to billions of souls plus the original one third of all the angels in heaven who could not overthrow God’s throne and power originally.
After this final battle (which lasts for a very short time), those who died upon the earth from the time of the RAPTURE through the thousand years of Christ’s reign), are raised to heaven for their judgment.
Those who trusted Christ, including the 144,000 Jews, known as the “Remnant” will already be serving with Christ on the earth – with their immortal bodies. “Absent from the body is to be present with the Lord”….and they will join Christ immediately upon their death. All who trust Christ AFTER the rapture, and who refuse to take the mark of the beast, shall be beheaded. Sorry!
After al this is finished, the Great White Throne of Judgment takes place in the third heaven where God’s throne is…against Satan, his demons and all the unsaved.
At the same time, all of those whose names have remained in the Book of Life…the “Book of the Lamb”, shall be in attendance in the third heaven with Jesus to attend the Marriage Feast of the Bride or Lamb…Jesus.
After this Great White Throne of Judgment by God – where He judges the unsaved by the Law of Moses, which no man could keep, then, Satan is cast into the bottomless pit where the Beast and the anti-Christ are already…and have been there since the time before the thousand years were…the “Millenium”.
Finally, we shall all be in heaven for eternity…worshipping God.
So, let’s get into the details now.
The “elect”, which is to say “God’s chosen ones – those who accepted Christ as Lord and Savior)”, shall be raptured or shall meet Jesus in the air at his next coming. There will be a third time that Jesus comes, but it will be the second time that His feet touch the earth. That will happen after 3.5 to 3.8 years of really horrendous judgments that God will bring upon the earth and all of the people who remain AFTER the rapture.
I must point out that the “elect” used to be the Nation of Israel. Israel rejected Jesus, the Son of God, so they lost that position with God. There will be a remnant of 144,000 Jews left AFTER the rapture takes place, and these “anointed ones” will become the ones who spread the Gospel of Christ to those who remain on the earth during the last half of the Tribulation Period - that horrible time. They will all be beheaded, unfortunately, as will those who trust Christ as their Savior after the RAPTURE.
The proof of what I say is in Revelation 20:4 –“ and I (John) 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.”
I want to make the educated guess that the rapture will occur by mid-Summer of 2015 to 2017. You can read all of my articles on this subject at www.JohnTyler.net, or get the book – "Heaven – How Do I Get There?" for all the details, but suffice it to say that the RAPTURE shall take place as soon as the temple on Mount Zion is built…then desecrated by Satan himself.
Before the seven angels of Revelation unleash horrific things upon the earth, the “Remnant” of 144,000 Jews (the only ones left after the Arabs kill all the rest..just before the rapture takes place), are sealed and “anointed” by God. Their mission will be to witness to the remaining inhabitants upon the earth that Jesus is Lord.
Revelation 7:3-5 –And an angel of God told these seven angels, “Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.”
The seven angels spoken of in Revelation reveal that unbelievably bad things will kill a third of the inhabitants of the earth, then a third of all that lives in the sea…and man will still curse God to His face. Some of what they will cause to happen on planet earth include:
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.”
Then, “the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood - And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed - verse 8&9.
Verse 10 –“ 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.”
All of this is happening as punishment upon the earth during mid 2015/2017 and 2020 in my educated opinion. If not, the sequence of events are all accurate – no matter when they happen Would you really want to be around during this time? There is but one way of escape.
You can go to Revelation 8 and beyond, to see for yourself all of the devastation that happens after the rapture…and just before Christ returns to actually set foot on the earth on Mount Zion. This is just before He casts Satan into the pit for 1,000 years, and we reign with Christ here on the earth for those thousand years.
Before that time arrives, and during this last half of the Great Tribulation Period, those who remain on the planet and see all fo this unfolding, will look toward their EARTH CAPITAL – BAGHDAD….where all of the corruptness and power emanates from….where all of the wealth is, and where all of the trade upon the earth flows into and out of….and they will marvel at the devastation of Babylon….”Baghdad”.
Revelation 18:18-21 –‘”And (the inhabitants) cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate. Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon (Baghdad) be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.”
Al of the joint-power of PROGRESSIVES and Islam will be destroyed within that one hour of time.
Those same “kings” and people in power…and others will run into the hills and beg for the rocks to fall on them and kill them…but they will not die. They do not want to face the one whom they hated and did not believe in.
Revelation 6:15-16 –“And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 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:
Planes will be in the air wreaking havoc on those in power. Likely, these will be Russian and Chinese planes..and one other nation who rise up against the others. Satan hates all mankind, and he causes division among these ten nation cabinet members. War is declared upon one another. Revelation 9:18 – “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.” Obviously, the men who wrote the Bible did not know what a jet was then, and equated it with large, things resembling scorpions…flying scorpions.
After the destruction of much of the population on the earth, this happens: Revelation 19:11 –“And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.”
This King of Kings on that white horse comes to Mount Zion, tosses Satan into the pit for the thousand years, and rules the earth for that time with us and the angels.
And, in Revelation 19, we find this: “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. 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.” Note* The Beast and false prophet are NOT Satan. After the Beast (anti-Christ) and his false prophet (the one on earth who proclaims that the anti-Christ is the one who should be worshipped) are tossed into the Lake of Fire, an angel then binds Satan himself, and chains him into the pit for the 1000 years.
Revelation 20:1 –“And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years. And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.”
During this time, when Jesus returns to step foot on the earth, all those who were beheaded because they believed (AFTER THE RAPTURE TOOK PLACE) get to stay on the earth…with their new, immortal bodies, for the thousand years.
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.”
Revelation 20”5 –“But the rest of the dead (unsaved) lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.”
Verse 6 – “Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.”
All those who accept Jesus as Lord AFTER the rapture, and who are beheaded because they would not take the mark (microchip) but chose martyrdom instead, will serve with Jesus on the earth for the thousand year period…aka The Millenium”.
They shall never see the so-called second death. The first death for all is to physically die. The second death for the unsaved is to die spiritually…foerever in the lake of fire made from burning sulphur (brimstone) – Revelation 19:20.
Finally, Satan is released from the pit after the thousand years, and only for a short time. God shall finish this many thousand year battle at this point.
Revelation 20:7-8 “And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison ,And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, (Russia and China) to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea”.
The end result is fire comes down from heaven and destroys them all. Then the Great White Throne Judgment happens in heaven. God judges the dead (those who physically died) under the Law and finds them all guilty of rejecting His Son, thereby choosing to live and be judged by the Ten Commandments. From there, God has His angels throw them all into the Lake of Fire…where they, Satan and his imps and all his followers, shall spend eternity.
Every knee…in heaven…on the earth…and under the earth…shall bow before Jesus and acknowledge that he is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Most will be forced to bow, but they will bow!
If you CHOOSE not to be here after the rapture, that would be a very wise choice. Go to www.JohnTyler.net and visit the Salvation Page.

You might want to consider the generation referred to is the fullness of a generation. The fullness of a generation is 70 years and possibly 80 years. This is found in Psalms. The ripening of the fig tree could also be May of 1948 even though I agree with you that is getting Jerusalem back is the ripening. As you can see 2010 is past. You boxed yourself in. Daniel 12 tells us that Michael the Archangel will rescue all those whose name is written in the Book of Life.
Ah, but if one were to actually STUDY the Bible, one would know that a generation (Matthew 17) is 43 years. Jesus said so, and I take that as a very reliable source. "From the time of Abraham until the time of Jesus is 1810 years divided by the number of "generations" described by the Lord. It comes to the year 2010 (approximate because some scholars debate Abraham's birth to within 5 years), that the beginning of the end is right around the corner.
It is my belief that "right around the corner" means that when YOU ad I see Israel kicking the Arabs out of Israel...then start building their Holy Temple on top of Mt. Zion - it wil be time to "Look up for your redemption draweth nigh". I believe that all of this is happening in the background (gloabal government) and that this New World Order will take place in 2012. I also believe (can't prove it) that the temple will e built...then desecrated...around the middle of 2015. So, If this does NOT happen as stated, please send me the same message...and I will humbly eat my hat.
