This is a very simple over view of the first half of the Tribulation
(First 1,260 days)
The First Seal
(Rev 6:1-2) – A White Horse - Antichrist revealed, peace covenant signed.
The Second Seal (Rev 6:3-4) – A Red Horse - World
Seal (Rev 6:5-6) – A Black Horse - Famine and inflation results from war.
The Fourth Seal (Rev 6:7-8) – A Pale Horse -
Death (result of starvation, war and disease) will destroy one fourth of the world’s population.
The Fifth Seal (Rev 6:9-11) – Tribulation
saints martyred (new believers in Christ will be killed because of their faith).
The Sixth Seal (Rev 6:12) – Great worldwide earthquake
like the world has never seen before.
Seventh Seal (Rev 8:1-2) - Heaven pauses for half an hour. Then God gives seven angels, who have
been standing before Him waiting for this day, seven trumpets, which are the next seven judgments to be released.
The First Trumpet
(Rev 8:7) – Hail and fire fall from the sky (could be literal or nuclear) and destroy one-third of the earth’s
Second Trumpet (Rev 8:8-9) – A mountain of fire (could be literal or nuclear) is thrown into the sea.
One third of the sea is turned into blood, one third of the ocean life dies and one third of the ships are destroyed.
Trumpet (Rev 8:10-11) – Giant burning meteorite called Wormwood falls from the sky and pollutes one third of the
world’s water supply.
The Fourth Trumpet (Rev 8:12) – There will be 16 hours of darkness and
8 hours of light each day.
Fifth Trumpet (Rev 9:1-11) – For five months a plague of scorpion-like locusts will attack all non-Christians.
The victims will want to die because of the torture, but they will not perish. All Christians and
vegetation are protected from this judgment.
Sixth Trumpet (Rev 9:13-21) – Four evil angels will be released along with their army of 200,000,000 horsemen.
They will kill one-third of the earth’s current population. All Christians are once again
protected from this judgment.
Seventh Trumpet (Rev 11:15-18) – The angels sing a chorus to God and the elders worship God. This
signifies the next round of judgments to begin.
There are some key
events that take place at this point during the middle of the Tribulation (Rev 12-13). The anti-christ
will be killed with a wound to the head and three days later he will rise again (this is his imitation of the death, burial
and resurrection of Jesus Christ). When he is raised up, he will be indwelt by Satan. Also,
the anti-christ will blaspheme God and defile the Temple. The anti-christ will force everyone to receive a mark on the right
hand or forehead in order to buy or sell goods. Anyone who does not take the mark is killed.
Jewish believers will begin to flee to the mountains (most likely Petra located in Jordan) where God will protect them.

The First Bowl
(Rev 16:2) - Foul and painful sores will infect everyone who took the mark of the beast and worshipped his image.
The Second Bowl (Rev 16:3) – The sea
will be turned into blood and everything in it will be killed.
The Third Bowl (Rev 16:4-7) – The rivers and springs will be turned
into blood because of the shed blood of the saints and prophets.
The Fourth Bowl (Rev 16:8-9) – The sun will scorch people with fire.
Instead of repenting, they curse the name of God.
Fifth Bowl (Rev 16:10-11) – There will be darkness on the kingdom of the Beast. Men will gnaw
their own tongues in agony. Still they refuse to repent and instead curse the name of God.
The Sixth Bowl (Rev 16:12) – The Euphrates
River will dry up to prepare the way for the kings from the East. Three demons are released and they gather
the world together for the Battle of Armageddon.
Seventh Bowl (Rev 16:17-21) - The greatest earthquake ever is released upon the whole earth.
Every island will be removed from the face of the earth and the mountains will be completely flattened.
Hundred pound hailstones will fall from the sky. Complete and total destruction will be worldwide.
