Part 2B - Events Between the Rapture and the Second Coming of Christ


The 2 Signs: a woman clothed with the sun, and a fiery red dragon

a woman clothed with the sun, the moon on her feet, a garland of 12 stars
pregnant with a child and laboring to give birth
a fiery red dragon - with 7 heads and 10 horns
the child was caught up to God
the woman hides in the wilderness for 1260 days

The war in heaven

Michael and his angels fought with the dragon and his angels
the dragon was cast to the earth
the earth dwellers are warned of the presence of the dragon

The dragon begins to persecute

the dragon persecutes the woman
the woman is given 2 wings of an eagle
the woman flies to the wilderness and hides for 3 and one-half years
the dragon makes war with the remnant of the woman


The beast rising out of the sea

the beast has 7 heads and 10 horns with 10 crowns
receives power, throne and authority from the dragon
one of his head was wounded but recovered
he was given authority for 42 months
he makes war with the saints and overcomes them

The sea coming out of the earth

comes out of the earth
has 2 horns and speaks like a dragon
he exercises the same power as the first beast
he causes men to worship the first beast
he performs great signs and deceives the nations
he makes an image of the beast and forces people to worship the image
he forces the people to receive the mark of the beast


The 144,000

The angel with a sharp sickle

the Son of Man thrusts in His sickle for the harvest
another angel announes the start of the harvest of the wrath of God
another angel comes out with a sickle
the angel thrusts in his sickle to begin th evine harvest
Revelation 15 NKJV
1 Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous: seven angels having the seven last plagues, for in them the wrath of God is complete. 2 And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God. 3 They sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying: “Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the saints! 4 Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your name? For You alone are holy. For all nations shall come and worship before You, For Your judgments have been manifested.” 5 After these things I looked, and behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened. 6 And out of the temple came the seven angels having the seven plagues, clothed in pure bright linen, and having their chests girded with golden bands. 7 Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God who lives forever and ever. 8 The temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from His power, and no one was able to enter the temple till the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.
