Revelation: Chapter 13 Timelines

Revelation 13 provides insights of the activities during the midpoint of the tribulation.  The Antichrist is in existence during the entire seven years of the tribulation, but in the first half he represents the rebuilt Roman empire, which is like, if not the same, as the European Union.  However, at the midpoint of the tribulation, Satan will indwell the Antichrist and give him full power, knowledge, and skill that will put in awe those whose names are not written in the Lamb's book of life.  This scenario of the Antichrist is shown in the light and dark orange bar about midway down the graph below, and extends across the entire seven years of tribulation.  At the bottom of the graphic shows the center of government being located at Rome during the first half of the tribulation, and the center of worship located at Jerusalem during the second half of the tribulation.

The events described in Revelation 13 are shown in the following graph with gold bars and text in black font, along with all the other events that have been revealed up to this chapter.  The gold bar for religious Babylon at the bottom of the graph during the 1st half of the tribulation is also shown, though it is not explained until Revelation 17.  It is included here and in the following chapters of Revelation leading up to chapter 17 in order to provide context as to whom the true ruler is during this time frame, up to but not including the midtribulation time.
