Exodus parallels
1flies, 8:20earth, sores, Rev. 16:2Physical safety for Christians with mark of Christ on foreheads. Those with the Mark of the Beast (666 or Satan's name on either hand or forehead) endure plague and famine, pestilence and sores
2livestock struck, 9:12sea, blood, Rev. 3Most of, if not all animals will die of starvation, and normal looking drinking water will instantly turn into blood in the mouths of non-Christians who drink, but Christians will not experience this (water will remain water for them)
3boils, 9:8rivers & fountains, blood, Rev. 4Christ is the Water of Life: Almost all major sources of water on Earth will become pure blood, killing all sea creatures and life in oceans
4hail, 9:13terrible heat from sun, Rev. 8Sun will be so hot to non-Christians they will be seared as if walking into open flame. Plants become scorched and animals will be cooked alive. Christians will not feel this heat
5locusts 10:1seat of beast, painful darkness, Rev. 1033% of the Sun, Moon and stars' lights will be darkened, making days significanly darker and shorter. The darkness will be painful
6painful darkness, 10:21Euphrates prepared for kings, Rev. 12Reference to Babylon's Seat of Evil from Isaiah. Earth's remaining humans will suffer spiritual dryness unless they do not repent very soon...Christ's coming is also prepared, where the seat of evil is to be conquered by Christ very shortly from this point
7firstborn struck, 11:1air, earthquake and hail, Rev. 17God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit come to Earth with booming voices and an Earth-splitting quake that completely annihilates Babylon. God now sits on the Earthly throne and rules the Earth. Non-Christians and the Beast all rally together to attempt to resist God one final time in a war called Armageddon but are totally defeated. Hailstones weighing 100lbs fall from the sky, killing many people. Still, surviving non-humans curse God and resist.

End of the first reign of evil and the Millennial Kingdom events

Satan’s followers
----------------

All people who took the Mark of the Beast are sent to Hell with Satan

Millennial Kingdom
Rev 20:1-3
(explanation
here)
----------------
 

God reigns for 1000 years over all Earth. Millions of humans who did not take the Mark of the Beast will survive and has one last chance to accept Christ. During this 1000 years no death will ever occur, and all Christians become judges of what's left of non-Christian humanity.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

End of Evil
Rev 20:3



After 1000 years, Satan is released one final time to test the faith and love of the remaining humans, where humans are allowed to choose Christ or Satan. Satan's and his new followers will rally to defy God, but they will all be instantly transported to Hell forever, and this marks the complete annihilation of evil from all existence.

God loves faith. Everything is all about simply having faith in God. Being alive in Christ simply means your goal is to believe in God. Nothing more. If you take the time to read all of Revelation, every time a judgment occurs (trumpet judgments, etc.) it is to capture the attention of non-Christians and make them realize they are being tricked by Satan. While Revelation seems terrifying, you should read it not for the sake of being prepared for the end of the world, as some do, but read it and instead see just how far God has gone and will go to win the faith of humans. Surviving these terrible events is all linked to faith. Period! Having faith is the name of the game. Nothing is more important to our Great God.

The graph above and the verses listed below are the quotes taken directly from Revelation. The verses below correspond to the graph above, but nothing can substitute actually reading Revelation. Some people believe the verses below are all symbolic, but when I read Revelation it seems painfully obvious this is all literal. There's nothing to indicate that this isn't a true prophecy, since prophecies like this in Exodus already came true!! I'm sure the end times will be quite horrible for non-Christians who keep resisting God and Christ. The quotes are broken since Revelation is very long. After reading these verses, take the time to read the entire book of Revelation!

1 I saw in heaven another great and marvelous sign: seven angels with the seven last plagues [(of Egypt)]—last, because with them God’s wrath is completed. (Revelation 15:1).
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3 The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead person, and every living thing in the sea died. (Revelation 16:3).-
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4 The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood. 5 Then I heard the angel in charge of the waters say:
“You are just in these judgments, O Holy One,
you who are and who were;
6
for they have shed the blood of your holy people and your prophets,

and you have given them blood to drink as they deserve.”
7 And I heard the altar respond:
“Yes, Lord God Almighty,
true and just are your judgments.” (Revelation 16:4-7).

8 The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was allowed to scorch people with fire. 9 They were seared by the intense heat and they cursed the name of God, who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent and glorify him. (Revelation 16:8-9).
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
10 The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and its kingdom was plunged into darkness. People gnawed their tongues in agony 11 and cursed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, but they refused to repent of what they had done. (Revelation 16:10-11).
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East. (Revelation 16:12).
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
17 The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, “It is done!” 18 Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since mankind has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake. 19 The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his wrath. 20 Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. 21 From the sky huge hailstones, each weighing about a hundred pounds,[a] fell on people. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible. (Revelation 16:17-21).

This will all happen very soon, perhaps any hour or day or month or year from now. Jack Van Impe says it might be in 2017, but I say it may be sooner due to Iran's desire to bomb us. The world has reached a breaking point of sin and desperation and poverty and violence and disease. The Earth itself cannot continue as it does now and survive, so the end is far closer than most believe. The once proud America is now facing a horrible depression and it's only getting worse due to the collapse of the global economy and global economic depression. The #1 bestselling thing in the entire world is an anti-depressant and it sells better than the top #2 and #3 things in the world combined, so do not be sad any longer because the Day of the Lord is at hand! Give your heart to Christ and he will love you and heal your sadness.

You have everything to gain and nothing to lose by choosing Christ. All hope and joy is yours in Christ. Do not tarry; do not wait until the last moment to know Christ because we are rewarded for our faith here and now in heaven with great treasures. You do not want to live in those miserable, horrible days of tribulation and most likely be tortured to death by non-Christians or killed by God during his cataclysmic Earth-shattering judgments (such as an Earthquake that devours an entire country or 100 lbs. hailstones or no food or water). Choosing Christianity at the last moment will force you to endure the physical reign of Satan for 7 years, though probably less since most Christians will be executed for refusing to worship Satan. In those days Satan will rule the entire Earth in violence and death, and to top it off God himself will also be cursing the Earth and humans to get peoples' attention to believe in Christ before it's truly too late. These last days will be fraught with torture for those who choose to believe in Christ and resist the antichrist. Death, starvation and truly apocalyptic weather will occur constantly. In those last days, everywhere you look will be people suddenly dying, crying out in severe agony, and the angels of heaven will shout thunderous judgments and great suffering will literally fall to the Earth, where even the Sun and stars and the sea and animals and crops will be cursed.
Know Christ now and be saved from this tribulation! You cannot escape Christ no matter what you choose to do. Either believe, or burn in Hell with Satan forever. This sounds terrible, but what would you be like as a God? You'd be far worse, I promise, because absolute power corrupts absolutely, but Christ lived and died to save you. He paid for your sins and disobedience with his own blood. Christ wants to save you. He was beaten, flogged, and nailed to the cross to bleed to death for you. What God in all the gods in the world has ever lived and died for humanity? None. No religion has this. The gods in other religions are oppressive and selfish and violent- they are no different than humans! But Christ rules with love and joy and safety. Do not be afraid of God...he suffered and died for you so that you could have the chance to experience a meaningful RELATIONSHIP with him. Those who do not understand, I encourage you simply to read the Bible and decide for yourselves. He is a worthy God. But you must
CHOOSE NOW AND BELIEVE!
