Tribulation Timeline
Armageddon to Jerusalem
The unholy trinity of Satan, Antichrist and False Prophet rule during the second half of the Tribulation. During that time, the seven angels pour out seven bowl of God's wrath. Salvation in Jesus Christ is still available and the Tribulation Saints are saved but time runs out quickly. Everyone must make an individual choice to follow God or follow Antichrist. The choice determines a person's eternal destiny. See World Government, World Religion, World Economy

Bowl 1 - Earth - Sores on People (Revelation 16:2)

The first angel pours the bowl on the earth. The plague is sores on the people with the mark of the Beast and those who worship the image.

Bowl 2 - Sea to Blood (Revelation 16:3)

The second angel pours the bowl on the sea. The plague is the sea turns to blood. Every person in the sea dies.

Bowl 3 - Fresh Water to Blood (Revelation 16:4, 5-6, 7)

The third angel pours the bowl on fresh water. The plague is the rivers and springs turn to blood. God is just in His judgments because these people shed the blood of the saints and prophets.

Bowl 4 - Sun Scorched People (Revelation 16:8-9)

The fourth angel pours the bowl on the sun. The plague is the sun scorches people. They know God is bringing the plagues, curse God but refuse to repent.

Bowl 5 - Kingdom of the Beast in Darkness (Revelation 16:10-11)

The fifth angel pours the bowl on the throne of the beast. The plague is darkness on the kingdom of the Beast. People were in agony because of the pain from the sores and the darkness.
21st Century Revelation's premise is that we are living in the End Times right before the Rapture. Four seals and five trumpets occur before the Tribulation. World War III (Iraq War III) occurs during the first half of the Tribulation. World War IV (Russia-Islamic War), seven bowls and World War V (Armageddon) occur during the second half.

I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God (Revelation 15:1).

Revelation 15 describes seven angels with pure white robes and gold sashes. They were given harps and bowls of the wrath of God that describe seven future plagues. They sang the song of Moses and the Lamb. The temple was filled with the glory of God and no one can enter the throne until the bowls were completed (Revelation 15:8).

They sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only are holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest (Revelation 15:3-4).
7 Bowls - The Wrath of God
Revelation 15-16

Seven bowls repeat parts from other judgments from God. During the time of Moses, there were ten plagues on Egypt. Three plagues of blood to water, sores and darkness were repeated in four bowls. Four trumpet wars are against a third of the earth, sea, fresh water and sun that are similar to five bowls. The sixth trumpet war and the 6th bowl refer to the Euphrates River and involve the kings of the east. Although these bowls are future, God can use the natural supernaturally or performs miracles. God's purpose is redemption. He gives mercy and grace to the humble and justice and judgment to the rebellious. In everything, God is glorified.

The book of Revelation is not sequential but a spiral of parallel events that have shorter and shorter time spans until the return of Jesus Christ. The Church Age began at Pentecost and ends at the Rapture. The seals began at the merger of Church and Roman State. The trumpets began with World War I. The Tribulation begins with a seven year covenant and World War III. The reign of the unholy trinity of Satan, Antichrist and False Prophet begins half way through the Tribulation and then the plagues of bowls start. The seals, trumpets, Tribulation, reign of Antichrist, bowls and Armageddon end at the Second Coming. Since we are about one hundred years into the Laodicean period, four horses are on the run and five trumpets sounded before the Tribulation. The beginnings of three world wars are falling into place. We are so far into the End Times that we see Revelation being fulfilled.

Euphrates River

Bowl 6 - Euphrates River Dried Up for Armageddon (Revelation 16:12, 13-14, 15, 16)

The sixth angel pours the bowl on the Euphrates River. The plague is on the river that flows through Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran dries up. The kings of East Asia cross the river. Three spirits that look like frogs come out of the dragon, Beast and False Prophet. They gather the armies of the world at the valley of Megiddo in northern Israel for Armageddon.

Bowl 7 - Storms at the End of Armageddon (Revelation 15:17 18 19 20 21)

The seventh angel pours the bowl in the air. The end of the Tribulation comes with the 6th seal, 7th seal, 7th trumpet and 7th bowl. These judgments describe lightning, thunder, great hail and earthquakes as islands fled and mountains fell as part of the Second Coming.
