Revelation Chart by Dr. Harry Ironside
[Dr. Harry Ironside (1876-1951), a godly Fundamentalist author and teacher for many years, served as pastor of Chicago's Moody Memorial Church from 1930-1948]
The above chart begins with Calvary. Then we see the Gentile Age (the history of the Church). The First resurrection is the PRE-tribulation Rapture when Christ returns FOR His saints (1st Thessalonians 4:17). Then we see that while the raptured saints will go through the Judgment Seat of Christ and the Marriage Supper of the Lamb; while back here on earth the Antichrist will rule the New World Order and God will pour out His wrath upon the world for their wickedness. After the 7-year Tribulation period there will be the Second Coming of Christ (the Lord's descent to the earth).
Christ here returns WITH His saints and the Battle of Armageddon is fought. Armageddon is a literal valley called “Megiddo” in Israel. The Beast (Antichrist) and the False Prophet will be defeated and the Lord will begin His earthly 1000-year reign from Jerusalem over the whole earth. Satan will be bound in chains and imprisoned for 1000-years.
At the end of the 1000-years, there will be a short rebellion after Satan is released from the Bottomless Pit. There will be humans during the Millennium who are the descendants of those saved during the Tribulation period. Some of these people will join Satan in his rebellion against God. Satan and his rebellion will be defeated and then the Great White Throne of Judgment will follow, during which all unsaved people throughout history will be convicted and cast into the eternal Lake of Fire. Satan, the Antichrist, and the False Prophet will also be cast into the lake of Fire to be punished day-and-night forever and ever. This will be the final judgment of all the doomed.
The earth will be burned over, purged with fire and God will make all things new (2nd Peter 3:7,12; Revelation 21:4). The saved throughout history will dwell upon the earth with God forever and ever in genuine love, lasting peace, true happiness, perfect harmony and bountiful plenty. 1st Corinthians 15:28, “And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.” Amen and amen!
