Major Themes of Biblical Prophecy

Major Trunk Line of Prophecy

The book of Revelation is the terminal, like trunk lines running unto a grand central station, where the highways of Biblical prophecy come to an end.

These major lines of prophecy are:

1.  The Lord Jesus Christ (Gen 3:15).


2.  Satan and Evil (Isa. 14:12-17, Ezekiel 28;11-18).


3.  Israel’s Covenants.


4.  The Beginning, Duration, and End of the “Times of the Gentiles” (
Daniel 2:24-45).


5.  The Church (Matthew 16:18).


6.  The Duration and End of Apostate Church.


7.  The Resurrection and Translation of the Saints.


8.  The Great Tribulation.


9.  The Second Coming of Christ as the Jewish Messiah.


10. The Millennium Kingdom.


11. A New Heaven and a New Earth.
