This article provides a newly designed, shocking apocalyptic timeline for the unfulfilled biblical predictions of the last days. It was taken from my book entitled, Apocalypse Road, Revelation for the Final Generation. Most basic prophetic timelines include the Church Age, Tribulation Period, Millennium and Eternal Order like the “Traditional Timeline” image below.
The problem with the traditional timeline is that it fails to consider the time interval that exists between the Church Age and the Tribulation Period (Trib-Period). The Trib-Period does not commence when the Rapture occurs, rather it starts when the Antichrist confirms the covenant between Israel and some other party in Daniel 9:27. Isaiah 28:15 and 18, which also alludes to this covenant, identifies the other party typologically as “Death and Sheol.” Thus, a time-gap can, and likely does, exist between the Church Age and the Trib-Period.
In my Post-Rapture / Pre-Tribulation Thesis, which is included in the Apocalypse Road book, I explore this vastly overlooked time-gap in greater detail. Within the thesis, I conclude that this gap period will probably last for several years and that some powerful Bible prophecies could find fulfillment at that time.
The topics covered in this thesis are listed below. As you will discover from this lengthy list, the Post-Rapture / Pre-Tribulation gap period could be jam packed with world changing events. Some of the topics below start in the gap-period, but find their final fulfillment within the Trib-Period.

THE APOCALYPSE ROAD TIMELINE (See below)
The newly designed timeline below is formatted to correspond closely with my books in this end time’s Apocalypse Road trilogy, which are, Revelation Road, Apocalypse Road and Tribulation Road. These three books are identified and bracketed in their appropriate time slots directly beneath the timeline. The image below includes the numbers between #1 through #8 that identify the probable timing of the unfulfilled prophecies listed beneath the timeline. These numbers are sequenced in the three primary periods of the last days, which are;
1. The Church age, which ends with the Rapture.
2. The Post-Rapture / Pre-Tribulation Gap Period, which begins one second after the Rapture and concludes when the seven-year Tribulation period, (Trib-period), starts.
3. The Seven-Year Tribulation Period, which concludes with the Second Coming of Christ.
CAVEAT: In no way, does this timeline appendix attempt to set a date, time or any preconditions for the fulfillment of the Rapture prophecy. I believe that the Rapture is an imminent event that could happen at any time between now and the start of the seven-year Trib-period. It is a sign-less event, which means that the prophecy has no preconditions!
NOW, NEXT and LAST Prophecies
Before displaying the “Apocalypse Road Timeline,” it is important to note that there are three categories of coming biblical prophecies. They are the;
1.) NOW Prophecies, which are covered in Revelation Road.
2.) NEXT Prophecies, which are covered in Apocalypse Road.
3.) LAST Prophecies, which will be covered in Tribulation Road.
The NOW Prophecies are the unfulfilled ancient biblical predictions that appear to be imminent, which means they could happen NOW! These ancient foretellings have either minor or no remaining preconditions inhibiting them from happening at the present time. These predictions are identified and explained in detail within my book entitled, “The Now Prophecies.”
The NEXT Prophecies are those that follow the fulfillment of the NOW Prophecies. In essence, the NOW’s provide the necessary nexus of events that pave the path for the execution of the NEXT Prophecies. Although the NEXT Prophecies are rapidly racing toward fulfillment, they require the completion of the NOW’s in order for their stage to become appropriately set.
The LAST Prophecies still have significant preconditions preventing them from finding fulfillment. They will find fulfillment relatively soon, but the LAST’s must wait in line behind the NOW’s and NEXT’s for their turn on the prophetic timeline.
The prophecies below are listed in the chronological order that the I believe they could happen. However, these events might find fulfillment differently than they are sequenced. Moreover, these predictions only represent some of, rather than all of, the prophecies of the end times. Each prediction begins with its time slot between numbers #1 through #8.
#1-Time Slot: The Church Age – (Revelation Road)
The #1-time slot concludes with the Rapture. Thus, all of these prophecies in the #1-time slot automatically shift to the #2-time slot of the Post-Rapture / Pre-Tribulation Gap Period, if they have not found fulfillment prior to the Rapture.
#1-Disaster in Iran (Jer. 49:34-39)
#1-Destruction of Damascus (Isaiah 17, Jer. 49:23-27)

The information revealed in Apocalypse Road, Revelation for the Final Generation has the potential to cause some people interested in Bible prophecy to rethink their end time’s models and redraw their last day’s timelines.
If the Post-Rapture / Pre-Tribulation gap period lasts for several years then some of the prophecies that were thought to be part of the Trib-Period, will likely need to be relocated into the gap period. I have rearranged my timeline and I suspect you might also after reading Apocalypse Road.
