Welcome to the Seeking Christ
What Will Happen After The Next Election Page

Are you trusting Christ?

Though we cannot predict the outcome of any election, we can stand firm on the historic events outlined in God’s Word, the Bible.

Here is what will happen!

We begin by dividing the history of the world by the following 13 events:

4000 BC. The Garden of Eden when man was in innocence, and before man’s disobedience toward God brought sin. (Gen. 1-2)

4000 to 2319 BC. The Antediluvian ("before flood") period (Gen. 3-7:16), when man became so wicked that God "repented" that He had made him

2219 BC. The Flood (Gen. 7:17-8:12), when every man/woman/child/animal/fowl was destroyed except for Noah, his wife, and two sons/daughters-in-law

2218 BC. The Tower of Babal where man attempted to form a one world government and one world religion in place of God (Gen. 11:1-9), but God confused their language and scattered them throughout the earth

1967 to 1892 BC. The Patriarchal period (Gen. 8:13-11), when the heads of the families were the representatives of God

1892 to 403 BC. The Nation of Israel (Gen. 12-Mal. 4), when God formed the Jewish nation, beginning with Abraham, and gave them a land, in order that they might represent God to the surrounding nations and the world

403 to 03 B.C. The 400 silent years (between Mal. 4 and Matt. 1), when God‘s voice was silent toward His people

03 B.C. to 30 AD. The life of Christ (Matt. 1- Acts 1:11), when God took on human flesh, sinlessly walked this earth, freely gave Himself to die for the sins of mankind, and was resurrected from the dead

30 AD to 20?? AD. The church age (Acts 1:12-Rev. 3), when God formed the church to be His representative on earth

20??. AD. The catching away (rapture) (1 Thess. 4:13-18), when every person who has put his faith in Christ and/or is considered by God in "innocence" is removed from this earth, in a moment, in a twinkling of an eye

20?? minus 7 yrs. The Tribulation period (Rev. 4-19), when God pours out His wrath on unredeemed man

20?? to 30?? The Millennial Kingdom (Rev. 20:1-10), when Jesus Christ physically and personally rules the world from Jerusalem

30?? The Great White Throne Judgment (Rev. 20:11-15), when every person who has refused Jesus Christ as Saviour stands before God, is judged and cast into the Lake of Fire, entombed there forever

30?? The new heaven and the new earth (Rev. 21-22), when God replaces this heaven and earth after all sin is cleansed from it

It is quite possible that the "church age," which began in 30 A.D., will end sometime during the first part of the new millennium. Though we cannot be exact about the year, we can surmise a general time period based on some Bible observations:

God created the world in 6 days, and rested on the 7th

God required of the Nation of Israel that the earth give its harvest for 6 years, and be rested on the 7th

The number 7 in the Bible seems to indicate perfection or completion

God uses a thousand years as one day in His timetable, but this may be just an abstract number for a long time period (2 Pet. 3:8)

From the creation of man until the birth of Christ was 4,000 years. From Christ until now has been almost 2,000 years, which leaves 1,000 years (the millennium) for the earth to be "rested"

The Catching Away

The catching away (rapture) is an event that will take off this earth every person who has trusted Jesus Christ as his/her Saviour, plus those deemed by God to be in "innocence" or "under the blood."  The Bible says;

All believers will not die (1 Cor. 15:51; 1 Thess. 4:15)
Jesus Christ will descend from Heaven into the clouds (1 Thess. 4:16; 2 Thess. 2:1)
Those believers who have died, shall be raised from the dead (1 Cor 15:52; 1 Thess. 4:16)
Those believers still alive shall be caught up into the clouds (1 Thess. 4:17)
This will happen in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye (1 Cor. 15:52)

Who will be taken?

All those who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ as their Saviour; men/women, boys/girls.
All those still in the "age of innocence," either by age or mental abilities

Who will be left?

All those who have rejected God’s free gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ, men/women, boys/girls (2 Thess. 2:10)
All those who are old enough to understand that disobeying God is sin, and that sin has eternal consequences (Jn. 3:18)

How will this catching away be explained?

God will send a strong delusion ("a wandering, seduction from the truth), and those that are left will believe A lie (2 Thess. 2:11)
A lie will be told by the man of sin/Antichrist (2 Thess. 2:3), who comes in Satan’s power, with signs, and lying wonders (2 Thess. 2:9) to attempt to usurp the position of God

On Earth

The man of sin/Antichrist, who will be a man working under the authority and power of Satan, will step to center stage from the European Common Market alliance. He will make a 7 year agreement with Israel, promising them the possession of their land, and full religious and political autonomy (Dan. 9:27)
The continuing building/strengthening of a one world apostate religion (Rev. 17 "Woman")
The continuing building/strengthening of a one world government (Dan. 7:7)

Near the end of the 3 1/2 years there will be a tremendous earthquake, the sun will turn black, the moon will be the color of blood, the stars fall from heaven, some hitting the earth, the heaven will depart as a scroll, and every mountain and island will be moved out of their place.

At the end of the 3 1/2 days, God gives them back their life, they stand upon their feet and ascend into the clouds with the whole world watching (Rev. 11:7-12).
