2Thessalonians Timeline:  Chapter 1

The following timelines are based on the foundation described in this site on interpretation of scriptures using timelines, which the reader is referred to for further information.  The timeline line below illustrates the basic structure of the seven years of tribulation, which is preceded by the church age, and is followed by the millennial reign of the Lord Jesus Christ.    

The next timeline builds upon the chart above.  Drawn at the top middle of the chart are two events that the church will experience immediately following the rapture.  The first event is the judgment seat of Christ, 2Corinthians 5:10, where all of His followers will appear before Him to be recompensed for the deeds done in the flesh for His kingdom.  The second even is the marriage of the Lamb, Revelation 19:7-10.  These two events are the day of Jesus Christ, 1Corinthians 1:7-9, and occur with the body of Christ.  The body of Christ consists of the resurrected saints who died in the Lord, and those yet alive who were raptured upon the Lord's return in the clouds, see the page on the rapture on this site for more information.  These heavenly events are contrasted with those on the earth during the seven years of tribulation, which constitute the day of the Lord.  Both of these events are contrasted on this site on the page discussion 1Thessalonians 5. The purple box in the center points to the singular event, when the Lord Jesus Christ returns to the earth to war upon His enemies at the battle of Armageddon, and to establish His millennial reign on earth.  For more information on this see the associated page on 2Thessalonians 1.
