Prophecies about Humanity's Future in Scripture

Bible prophecy is sprinkled throughout Scripture. Many of the prophecies have already been fulfilled. Most have yet to be fulfilled. Get a glimpse here of the extensive prophecies yet to be fulfilled and what they foretell.



In passages like Isaiah 46:10 & Isaiah 48:5-8, God notes that prophecy is what distinguishes Him from all other beings—that He can “declare the end from the beginning.” Prophecy is an expression of His sovereignty and His not being bound by the constraints of time.


And, of course, many of the prophecies detailed in Scripture (such as the arrival, rejection, torture, death and resurrection of the Messiah as found in Psalm 16:10, Psalm 22:1-18, Isaiah 52:13-53:12, Daniel 9:25-26, Micah 5:1-2) enable us to have the confidence that prophecies yet to be fulfilled will actually become fulfilled.


In the table below are detailed numerous passages of Scripture that address some significant prophetic events that are yet to be experienced by humanity.


The key events, as we understand them chronologically, present in the following order:

  • The Rapture of the Church (note that some see this event as occurring during the time of the Great Tribulation)

  • A 7-year period that constitutes or includes the time of the Great Tribulation

  • The Day of the Lord (the crescendo of the Great Tribulation and heralds the arrival of Messiah)

  • Armageddon (an invasion of Israel by many nations, under the auspices of the antichrist, to try to plunder and eliminate Israel and its people); the nations are defeated when Christ returns.

  • The 2nd Coming of Christ (note that orthodox Jews understand this event to be the first arrival of the Messiah)

  • The Millennial Reign of Christ (a 1,000-year period wherein the Messiah reigns over the entire world from Mount Zion in Jerusalem)

  • Great White Throne judgment (follows Christ’s crushing of the final rebellion as described in Revelation 20:4-13)

  • Eternity of God with His people.

These events are detailed in numerous prophecies scattered throughout Scripture—most of which are detailed below.

Ezekiel 38-39:24

A Massive Invasion of Israel (Armageddon)

A group of nations invades Israel to plunder it.  Included in the group of nations is Gog/Rosh (Russia), Persia (Iran), Put (Libya), Cush (Sudan), Gomer (Turkey) and Beth Togarmah (Armenia). It will be a massive army and ground assault. [Opponents of the idea that this is Armageddon indicate that this battle is against Israel whereas the Battle of Armageddon as described in Revelation 19:17-21 is against Christ Himself.  However, Zechariah 14:1-15 reconciles the battles—suggesting that the battle starts against Israel, but then Christ comes to rescue Israel and defeat the invading army.]

Some nations (including possibly nations in Northern Africa as well as other nations known for their merchants—i.e., possibly the U.S.) will inquire about the purpose of the invasion.

Scholars differ as to whether this invasion occurs at the start of or at the midpoint of the Great Tribulation or whether it is indeed the Battle of Armageddon. The succeeding passage of Ezekiel 39:25-29 suggests that this battle is Armageddon.

God addresses the enemy of Israel with an earthquake (so severe that all living creatures tremble), rain, hailstones, plague and burning sulfur. [Note that the battle as described in Zechariah 14 includes a massive earthquake, a plague and panic.]

It will take 7 months to bury the dead of the invading army and 7 years to burn the weapons (which points to a date at the start of the final 7-year period of Tribulation).  Birds (see also Revelation 19:17-18) and wild animals will assist with the cleanup of the deceased.

The world will recognize that God saved Israel.

Note that the battle in Revelation 20:7-9 involves all nations (unlike this attack that involves less than all nations), and Satan is leading the charge—indicative of the fact that the Revelation battle is the final rebellion, while this battle appears to be distinct from the final battle.

Note that the assault is on Israel, after the land has been restored from war and which has been “regathered from many peoples to the mountains of Israel” (which appears to be after the resurrection of Israel in 1948).

Ezekiel 39:25-29

Millennial Reign of Christ

God will restore the fortunes of Jacob and gather the people of Israel from the nations.

God will demonstrate His holiness to Israel in the sight of many nations.

God will pour out His Spirit on the House of Israel.

The Special Life-Giving River flowing out from the Temple Area in the Millennial Reign of Christ

Provides fresh, restorative water that produces life, and special trees providing healing.

Ezekiel 48

Allotments of Land in Israel During the Millennial Reign of Christ

Note that "the name of the city from that day on will be: Yahweh Is There."

Daniel 2

Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream of Future World Kingdoms

 

According to Daniel’s interpretation (Daniel 2:31-45), a series of world kingdoms would arise after the Babylonian kingdom, each becoming inferior to the prior kingdom; the final kingdom (of the antichrist) has 10 elements and is partly strong and partly brittle; a stone from God (Christ) crushes the final kingdom and establishes “a kingdom that will never be destroyed” (v. 44).

Daniel 7:7-27

Daniel’s Vision of the Final World Kingdom and its Destruction by the Messiah

Appears to be the final world kingdom; its 10 horns represent its 10 kings or sovereignties; the kingdom is terrorizing to the earth; one small horn that arises in place of 3 horns is the antichrist. He speaks against the Most High and changes the laws and religious festivals and persecutes the “holy ones” for 3.5 years. But the Ancient of Days arrives and strips the kingdom away from him.

One like the son of man is granted authority over the earth.  He is given an everlasting kingdom.

Daniel 8

Daniel’s Vision of a Ram and a Goat

Providing Daniel with a prophecy about future kingdoms, including Medo-Persia (Cyrus the Great), Greece led by Alexander the Great, whose kingdom at his death was divided into 4 kingdoms—one of which would be the Seleucid Empire, whose leader, Antiochus Epiphanes IV, would claim to be “God Manifest,” persecute Israel and defile the temple—as a precursor to a future similar offender, the antichrist (the little horn of Daniel 7:8, 25 and discussed in Daniel 9:27 and 11:36-45, Matthew 24:15-16, Mark 13:22, 2 Thessalonians 2:3-12, I John 2:18-23 and Revelation 11:7, 13:5-7, 13:16-18, 17:8-12).

Daniel 9:24-27

Gabriel’s Prophecy Given to Daniel Regarding the Coming of the Messiah and the antichrist

Gabriel indicates that 490 years are particularly prophesied for Daniel’s people and Jerusalem; the Messiah would come 483 years after the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem; the Messiah would then be “cut off”; a final period of 7 years awaits in the future marked by a covenant entered into by him (the antichrist) with “many” (likely the people of Israel) for a 7-year period, but in 3.5 years he (the antichrist) will break the covenant, stop the sacrifices and offerings and defile the temple—inciting desolation of the world (by God).

Daniel 10-11

An Angel’s Prophecy Given to Daniel Regarding Future Kingdoms

Daniel receives a prophecy regarding the future kingdom of Greece as would become controlled by Alexander the Great, whose kingdom would be divided in 4 kingdoms, culminating in detail regarding the actions of Antiochus Epiphanes IV.

The prophecy is so accurate in its description of the kingdoms and their activities that many have opined that the information was recorded after the facts.

Verses 40-45 may relate to an end times battle involving the antichrist as the king of the North. [Note that verses 36-45 may all relate to the antichrist.]

The Great Tribulation and perhaps the Day of the Lord
