Yo mentioned the Day of the Lord and spoke about Revelation 6. The
"awakening" and also called the Great Warning is Revelation 6:12-17.
We will wish the rocks to fall on us seeing our lives in review during
the Great Warning. The best way to prepare is make a heartfelt confession of your mortal sins to God. A person will not feel the pain of seeing
CONFESSED sins in this NDE like life review. We are near right
now to the end of the 6th Day.
There is very good book about eschatology with no dates and no reference to prophecy. It's all confirmed by Scripture, the early Church
Fathers and the Magisterium.
It is called The Triumph of God's Kingdom in the Millennium and End Times
Here is a brief summary:
...in salvation history, four thousand years preceded Christ, and two thousand years have followed upon his birth. The next thousand years would be
the seventh thousand, or the seventh day, the Sabbath day rest. Hence this period may very well be the millennial period. After the end of the seventh
day, comes the eighth or eternal day of God's everlasting kingdom. However, we do not know for sure if the thousand years is to be taken literally,
nor for sure when it will begin.
In scripture, the Day of the Lord refers to the whole seventh day
, or the whole thousand-year period. The Millennium is the period of peace
which marks the peak of this Day. The defeat of Antichrist will herald the beginning of the Millennium, or thousand year spiritual reign of Christ.
The binding of Satan for a thousand years is also at the beginning of the Millennium.
The reign of Jesus during the Millennium will be a Eucharistic reign.
Jesus will not come in the flesh to begin the Millennium, but will come in spirit and power. To say that Jesus will come in the flesh for the thousand
years is the heresy of Millenarianism. To say that He will come in the flesh for a thousand years and establish a 'sensual' kingdom of carnal
banquets is the heresy of Chiliasm.
The end of the Millennium is marked by the final defeat of Satan (Gog, Magog period). The Rapture or gathering up with Christ refers to the final
judgement, and will be at the end of the millennial period, not at its beginning.
The end of the seventh day is the end of time, and the beginning of eternity, or the eighth day of eternal rest, the eternal kingdom of God.
Thus there are then two separate tribulations, one at the beginning of the day (Antichrist), and one at the end of the day (Satan), the 'great'
tribulation. There are two remnants, the Christian survivors of each of the two tribulations. There are two triumphs - the first triumph heralds the
Temporal Kingdom and the second triumph heralds the Eternal Kingdom....
