This is what I believe is the sequence how the World will end.

1. The rapture of the church. Jesus will return to take to heaven all who have believed in Him since His life and death on earth. 1 Thess 4:13-18.

2. The judgement of believers for rewards for faithful service. 1 Cor. 3:12-15, 2 Tim 4:8, 1Pet 5:4.

3. The revival of some expression of the Roman Empire. Rev 17:3-17, through which great evil will come.

4. The rise if the Antichrist 13:1-8; and

5. The seven year period known as the Great Tribulation represented by seals, trumpets, and bowls poured out on earth (6-18).

When the tribulation nears it's end, these events will break out:

6. A world war focused on Armageddon in Israel. Rev 16:12-16.

7. The Second Coming of Christ (Rev 19:11-21) with the armies of heaven to defeat the armies of the Antichrist; and

8. The binding of Satan for 1,000 years (Rev 20:4) so that he cannot deceive anyone during the millennium.

Then the Lord Jesus will glorify His Father by means of these climactic events:

9. The resurrection of tribulation saints and Old Testament saints (Dan 12:1,2; Rev 20:4) to reign with Christ in His kingdom;

10. The millennial kingdom of Christ (Rev 20:5,6) during which He will reign over the earth from the throne of David in Jerusalem.

11. A final rebellion when Satan is loosed and deceives many after the millennium rule Rev 20:7-10);

12. The resurrection and final judgement of the wicked (Rev 20:11-15); and

13. The eternal new heaven and new earth with it's New Jerusalem (Rev 21:1--22:5).

This prophetic agenda is packed with action, and many of these events can be subdivided into several other steps. If you do not know Jesus Christ, whom is the Truth, the Way, and the Life and whom will reign forever and ever, accept Him as your Lord and Savior now and you will not have to go through the terrible tribulations. Jesus Christ the only Way to Salvation.
