Bible Study Notes & Outlines


What Does the Future Hold?
Matthew 24:1-3
INTRODUCTION: Every Bible student is thrilled to be able to read about events that are still future. Only in the Bible is the future unfolded. In this lesson, we shall consider some of these events in the order in which they will happen.

I. CHRIST'S COMING FOR HIS SAINTS. (1 Thess. 4:13-18)
The next event to occur is the coming of Christ to take His people home to heaven. This is known as the Rapture. Christ will descend from Heaven. The bodies of believers who have died will be raised. Living believers will be caught up together with them to meet the Lord in the air.

2. THE TRIBULATION. (Matthew 24:5-31)

After the Rapture, the earth will experience a period of great suffering and sorrow known as the Tribulation. A great evil ruler will arise known as Antichrist (meaning against Christ). He will demand worship from the people. It will be a time of such great suffering that unless the days were shortened, no life would survive.

3. CHRIST'S COMING TO REIGN. (Malachi 4:1-3)

Toward the end of the Tribulation period, the Lord Jesus Christ will come back to the earth in great power and glory. He will destroy His enemies, including Antichrist, and judge those nations which persecuted faithful Jews. Satan will be bound in the bottomless pit for 1000 years.

4. THE MILLENNIUM. (Isaiah 32:1; 35:1-7; 65:17-25)
When His work of judgment has been completed, Christ will set up His kingdom on the earth. Jerusalem will be His capital. He will reign upon the earth for a thousand years. This period is known as the millennium. It will be an era of peace and happiness. The desert will blossom like the rose. Men will live to very old ages.

5. THE JUDGMENT OF THE GREAT WHITE THRONE. (Rev. 20:11-15)
At the end of Christ's 1000-year reign, the Judgment of the Great White Throne will take place. This is the judgment of the wicked dead. No saved persons will be involved. The graves will give up the bodies of unbelievers, and Hades or hell will give up their souls. They will then stand before Christ to be judged.

6. ETERNITY. (Rev. 21:1-8)
The final picture of the future is the eternal state. The earth as we know it will have been destroyed by fire. Time, as we know it, will have ceased.
