chronological, but with flashbacks and forwards)
11: 45 And [the Lawless One] shall plant the dwellings of
his palace between the seas in the glorious holy
mountain [Temple Mount]; yet he shall come to his
end, and none shall help him.
24: 15 Therefore, when you will see [The Lawless One]...stand
in the holy place...
Thes 2:3...so that he [the Lawless One] as G-d sits in the
Temple of G-d, showing himself that he is G-d.
11:1 And there was given to me a reed like a rod: and the
angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the Temple of
G-d, and the altar, and those who worship therein.
2 But the court which is outside the Temple leave out, and
do not measure it, for it is given to the Gentiles, and the
holy city shall they tread under foot forty two months.
Man of Sin Revealed
(Abomination of Desolation)
12: 11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be
taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate
is set up, there will be a thousand two hundred and ninety
(This is a flashback in the text to a former time in
chronology. Matt. 24:15-22 demonstrates that Daniel 12:11
24:15 Therefore, when you will see the abomination
of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet,
stand in the holy place...
Thes. 2:3 Let no one deceive you by any means, for that day
[catching up of chosen ones] shall not come, until
there comes the apostasy first, and also the man of
sin is revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called
G-d, or that is worshipped; so that he as G-d sits
in the temple of G-d, showing himself that he is G-d.
8 And then shall that Lawless One be revealed,
whom Adonai shall consume with the breath of His mouth, and
shall destroy with the brightness of His coming:
9 Even him whose coming is after the working of Satan with
all power and signs and lying wonders,
13:5 And there was given to him [the Creature, Lawless One]
a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was
given to him to continue forty two months.
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against G-d,
to blaspheme His Name, and His Tabernacle, and
those who dwell in heaven.
in or of Judah Flee
14: 5 And you will flee to the valley of the
mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall
reach unto Azal, Yes, you will flee, like you fled from
before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah:
and Adonai, my G-d, shall come, and all the holy ones with

take any thing out of his house:
18 Neither let him who is in the field return back to take
19 And woe to those who are with child, and to those who
nurse their baby in those days!
20 But you should pray that your flight is not in the
winter, neither on the Sabbath day.
12:6 And the woman fled into the wilderness,
where she has a place prepared by G-d, to feed her there a
thousand two hundred and threescore days.]

Chapter 12, and is interjected here to go with the Matthew
(Time of Trouble)
12:1 And at that time shall Michael ["the One Who is
like G-d"] stand up, the Great One, the Prince who is
the Protecting One for the children of your people: and
there will be a time of trouble, such as never was since
there was a nation even to that same time...
24: 21 For then there will be great tribulation,
such as was not since the beginning of the world to this
time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And unless those days would be shortened, there would no
flesh be saved, but for the chosen one's sake those days
will be shortened.
Thes. 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in
those who perish, because they received not the love of the
truth [remembrance], that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion,
that they should believe a lie,
12 That they all might be damned who have not believed the
truth [remembrance], but rather had pleasure in
[1:6 Seeing it is a righteous thing with G-d to recompense
tribulation to those who trouble you.]
13:7 And it was given to him to make war with the holy ones,
and to overcome them: and power was given him over all
kindred, and tongues, and nations.
[Rev. 14:7 ...Fear G-d, and give glory to Him; for the hour
of his judgment is come, and worship Him who made heaven,
and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
8 ...another angel was saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen,
that great city, because she made all nations drink of the
wine of the wrath of her fornication.
9 ...If anyone worships the Creature and his image, and
receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of G-d,
which is poured out without mixture into the cup of His
indignation; and He shall be tormented with fire and
brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the
presence of the Lamb:
11 And the smoke of their torment ascended up forever and
ever, and they have no rest day or night, who worship the
beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his

(Protection of the Chosen Ones)
12:1 And at that time shall Michael [the One Who is like
G-d] stand up, the Great One, the Prince who is the
Protecting One for the children of your
people:...and at that time your people will be
delivered, every one who is found written in the

is Messiah do not believe.
24 For there will arise false messiahs and false prophets,
and they will show great signs and wonders so much so that,
if it were possible, they would deceive the true

26 Wherefore if any say to you, "Look, He is in the
desert," do not go; or "Look, He is in a secret
place," do not believe it.

you, brethren beloved of Adonai, because G-d has
from the beginning chosen you to salvation through
holiness of the Spirit and belief of the truth

of the glory of Adonai Yeshua HaMashiach.
15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold to the
traditions which you have been taught...

wrath, but to obtain salvation by Adonai Yeshua HaMashiach,
10 Who died for us, that, whether we are awake or asleep, we
should live together with Him.]
(This is a later point made by Shaul out of chronology to
affirm that G-d will protect His chosen ones.)
13:8 And all who dwell on the earth will worship him [The
Lawless One], whose names are not written in the book
of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
10 He who leads into captivity will go into captivity. He
who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here
is the patience and the faith of the holy ones.

those who keep the commandments of G-d, and the faith of

says the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors and
their works do follow them.]

eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, to her place,
where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a
time, from the face of the serpent.]
Sun and Moon Darkened
2:10 The earth will quake before them; the heavens shall
tremble; the sun and the moon shall be dark, and
the stars shall withdraw their shining:
11 And Adonia shall utter his voice before His army, for His
camp is very great: for He is strong who executes His Word.
Because the day of Adonai is great and very terrible; and
who can abide it?
13:9 Behold, the day of Adonai comes, cruel both with wrath
and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate. And He will
destroy the sinners thereof out of it.
10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof
shall not give their light. The sun shall be
darkened in its going forth, and the moon will not cause her
light to shine.
11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the
wicked for their iniquity. I will cause the pride of the
presumptuous to keep Shabbat, and will humble the majesty of
24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days the
sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give her light,
and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the
heavens shall be shaken.
6:12 And I beheld as he opened the sixth seal. There was a
great earthquake; and the sun became black as
sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
13 And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as when a fig
tree casts her untimely figs when she is shaken by a mighty

together; and every mountain and island were moved out of

rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and
every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the
dens and in the rocks of the mountains.
16 They said to the mountains and rocks, 'Fall on us, and
hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne, and
from the wrath of the Lamb.
17 For the great day of His wrath has come and who will be
able to stand?']

It rushes to the end when Messiah is about to come.)

many crowns; and He had a name written, that no man knew,

name is called The Word of G-d.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon
white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of His mouth proceeds a sharp sword, and with it
He can strike the nations: and He will rule them with a rod
of iron, for He treads the winepress of the fierceness and
wrath of Almighty G-d.
Resurrection of the Righteous Dead
12:2 And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth
shall awaken, some to everlasting life...
24:31 ...and they shall gather together His chosen
ones from the four winds, from one end of the
heavens [atmosphere] to the other.
Thes. 4:14 For if we believe that Yeshua died and rose
again, even so those also which sleep in Yeshua will G-d
bring with Him...
15 ...we which are alive and remain until the coming of
Adonai shall not precede [rise before] those who are asleep.
16 ...and the dead in Messiah shall rise first.
20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment
was given unto them: and I saw the souls of those who were
beheaded for the witness of Yeshua, and for the Word of G-d
[Torah], and who had not worshipped the Creature, neither
his image, neither had received his mark upon their
foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned
with Messiah a thousand years.
5 But the rest of the dead did not live again until the
thousand years were finished. This is the first
6 Blessed and holy is the one who has part in the first
resurrection. On such the second death has no power, but
they will be Kohanim of G-d and of Messiah, and shall reign
with Him a thousand years.
Catching Up of the Righteous Living

the firmament; and those who turn many to righteousness as
the stars for ever and ever.
60:8 Who are these who fly as a cloud, and as the doves to
24:31 ...and they shall gather together His chosen
ones from the four winds, from one end of the

up together with them in the clouds, to meet Adonai
in the atmosphere...

7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to Him, for the
marriage of the Lamb is now here, and His wife has made
9 ...And he said to me, "Write, Blessed are those who
are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb...]
(This is from the introduction of this chapter, which
anticipates the union of Messiah with His own. Reference to
Messiah as "the Lamb" here alludes to the Passover
Seder as the marriage supper.)
Return to Earth in Wrath
14:3 Then Adonai will go forth, and fight against
those nations, as when He fought in the day of
4 And His feet shall stand in that day upon the Mount of
Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount
of Olives shall split in the middle toward the east and
toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley.
Half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half
of it toward the south.
24:48 But if that evil servant says in his heart, Adonai
delays His coming;
49 And begins to strike his fellow servants, and to eat and
drink with the drunken,
50 The Lord of that servant will come in a day when he
looked not for Him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him to pieces, and appoint
him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping
and gnashing of teeth.

Adonai Yeshua shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty

know not G-d, and that do not obey the good news of
Adonai Yeshua HaMashiach.

the presence of Adonai, and from the glory of His power;
10 When He shall come to be glorified in His holy ones, and
to be admired on that day in all those who believe.]

18 ...comfort one another with these words.
19:14 And the armies that were in the sky followed Him upon
white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of His mouth proceeds a sharp sword, that
with it He would strike the nations. And He will
rule them with a rod of iron, for He treads the winepress of
the fierceness and wrath of Almighty G-d.
16 And He has on His Talit on His thigh a name written, KING
OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with
a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst
of sky, 'Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper
of the great G-d...
19 And I saw the Creature, and the kings of the earth, and
their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who
sits on the horse, and against His army.
20 And the Creature was taken, and with him the false
prophet who performed miracles before him, with which he
deceived those mark of the Creature, and
those who worshipped his image. They both were cast alive
into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21 And the rest were killed with the sword of Him who sits
upon the horse, which sword proceeds out of His mouth, and
all the birds were filled with their flesh.
Author's Note: God's Word
gives us clear prophecy regarding the return of Jesus.
There are no "text codes" or
"numerological" calculations hidden within the
Word of God. Pray asking that God would enlighten your
mind through His Holy Spirit and you will recognize that
these are the last days just before the return of Jesus.
Prepare yourself spiritually that you will be ready when
He comes. At His return be found doing that of which you
will not be ashamed.
1John 2:28 ... abide in Him; that, when
He shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before
Him at His coming.
And as your fellow servant in Christ, this do I tell you,
it is the time for His return.
I believe this in my mind by the reading of the Word, and
in my spirit through the guidance and prompting of the
Holy Spirit. Get ready. Barry L. Brumfield
