150+ Chapters in the Bible on the End Times

I. Introduction:

A. Parameters for Inclusion:

In this document we have identified 150 chapters in the Bible in which the End Times is the main subject. We have selected only the chapters in which the majority of the text (51 percent or more) is focused on some aspect of the End Times. At the end of the document however several other passages are mentioned though they do not encompass entire chapters. The eighty-nine chapters of the four Gospels give us a record of Jesus' heart and power at His first coming when He came to pay the price for our redemption. The 150 chapters give us a record of Jesus’ heart and power at His Second Coming when He comes to take over the earth. These 150 chapters reveal the same Jesus operating in the same Holy Spirit as recorded in the same Bible. Almost twice as many chapters of Scripture describe Jesus’ Second Coming than His first coming.

B. Educating Ourselves:

We must not be illiterate regarding these glorious 150 chapters in the Bible about the Jesus we love. The generation in which the Lord returns is clearly the generation the Bible describes the most. Jesus spoke more about that generation than the one in which He was born. He did this to prepare His Bride to be victorious in love during the most dramatic time in world history.

C. Identifying Key Points:

This document includes a very brief description of the key aspect of the End Times that is described in each of these 150 chapters. Incidentally, there are over 150 chapters, but it could be debated whether some of these chapters have the End Times as their primary reference (they are therefore listed at the end under Additional End Time Passages). We have rounded the number of chapters down to 150 for the sake of clarity.

D. Double Reference:

Some end-time prophecies have a dual fulfillment. This is called the law of the double reference. It means that a partial fulfillment of what was prophesied occurred in the past, while the complete fulfillment of the prophecy is yet in the future.

E. Finding Fulfillment:

Most often the future fullness of a negative prophecy will be fulfilled in the Great Tribulation and the fullness of the positive prophecies will mostly be seen in the Millennial Kingdom. For instance, in Luke 4:18 Jesus references Isaiah 61:1-3 as related to His first coming. However, it is clear that all of the details of Isaiah 61 did not take place at Jesus’ first coming. They will be fulfilled after He returns and establishes the fullness of His reign on the earth in the Millennial Kingdom.

F. Prophetic Picture:

Many of the Old Testament prophecies have a partial fulfillment at some point in the past, with a complete fulfillment in the generation in which the Lord returns. Sometimes, the partial fulfillment can also serve as a prophetic picture of what the fullness will look like at the end of the age. Therefore, our description includes a brief reference to the partial fulfillments of that prophecy in history, whenever it is applicable. It is important to also note, that these prophecies have spiritual applications at any time in history for all believers, before their complete fulfillment at the end of the age.

 

II. New Testament:

A. Matthew 13:

Jesus first refers to the partial judgments on Israel described in Isaiah 6. Next, He describes the characteristics of the nature of the kingdom through a series of parables. One underlying theme in these parables is that the full manifestation of the kingdom will happen after the Second Coming. Pay attention to how many times this chapter mentions the coming Kingdom of Heaven.

B. Matthew 24; Mark 13; Luke 17; Luke 21:

Jesus’ main emphasis in these four parallel chapters is to describe the Great Tribulation just before His Second Coming. He predicted the siege of Jerusalem and the destruction of its temple (Mt. 24:2) by the Roman armies in 70 AD. This tragedy foreshadows the siege of Jerusalem at the end of the age (Jo. 3:2, 12; Zph. 3:8; Zch. 12:2-3, 14:2; Re. 16:14). Many details in these four chapters make it clear, that Jesus’ words go far beyond the events of 70 AD to describe the events at the end of the age. For example, Jesus describes the time of the Great Tribulation as the worst time in history (Mt. 24:21). God shortens this time frame to three and a half years in order to keep the entire human race from being physically killed (Mt. 24:22). Jesus said this hour would come as a snare upon the entire earth, not only Israel (Lk. 21:35). The Great Tribulation will surpass all other crises in history, including the one million people who died in 70 AD and the fifty million who died in World War II. Neither 70 AD nor World War II threatened the existence of the human race. Jesus said this time of tribulation would not happen until after we see the abomination of desolation (Mt. 24:15), which includes a worldwide Antichrist worship system centered upon the image of the Antichrist, and the mark of the beast (Re. 13:13-18). None of these details were fulfilled in the Jewish revolt against Rome (66-70 AD).

C. Matthew 25:

This chapter continues with the theme of Matthew 24. The events at the end of the age are addressed through the description of how the end-time Church will prepare for that hour (Mt. 25:1-30). It then gives a description of Jesus judging the nations immediately following the Second Coming (Mt. 25:31-46).

D. 1 Corinthians 15:

This is the most informative passage in Scripture on the resurrection. In verses 24-28, Paul describes Jesus’ reign in the Millennial Kingdom. In verses 35-49, he reveals the glory in the resurrected body. Finally in verses 50-55, Paul speaks of the mystery pertaining to the generation of believers that will not die, but instead, will be conveyed from mortality to immortality, instantaneously at the return of Christ.

E. 2 Corinthians 5:

Paul teaches on the resurrected body and the judgment seat of Christ.

F. 1 Thessalonians 4-5:

Paul describes the rapture of the church and the resurrection of the dead at the Second Coming (1Th. 4:15-18). Next, Paul encourages believers to watch (1Th. 5:1-10). He concludes with a prayer to be sanctified and to stand blameless at Jesus’ coming (1Th. 5:23).

G. 2 Thessalonians 1:

The glorious day in which Jesus will come with His mighty angels and take vengeance on the enemies of the gospel (Is. 66:15) is depicted.

H. 2 Thessalonians 2:

The Second Coming will be preceded by a falling away from the faith and the rise of the “man of sin, the son of perdition” who is the Antichrist. A falling away of Christians in the future will be so widespread, that it is one of Paul’s primary signs of the nearness Jesus’ Second Coming.

I. 2 Timothy 3:

Paul describes the perilous times in the last days, in terms of the moral decay within society as it is filled with sin and deception.

J. 2 Timothy 4:

Many people will not endure sound doctrine in the End Times. Instead, they will heap up false teachers who will endorse lifestyles of lust, in the context of false doctrines of grace. Many will turn aside from the truth. The coming of Christ is referenced by Paul three times in this short chapter (vv. 1, 8, 18).

K. 2 Peter 3:

Peter describes the final stages of the Day of the Lord and the cleansing of the earth with fire.

 

III. In the Book of Revelation:

A. Revelation 5:

The Father’s plan is to exalt Jesus as a human king over all the earth. Jesus takes the scroll from the Father’s hand. The scroll represents the title deed of the earth and the action plan to cleanse it.

B. Revelation 6:

The judgments of God again the kingdom of darkness are unveiled.

C. Revelation 7:

God promises to protect His people from the judgments and compromise.

D. Revelation 8-9:

The trumpet judgments are released against the Antichrist’s empire.

E. Revelation 10:

God promises to release prophetic messages to bring understanding in order to help people avoid deception. Joel prophesied of a dynamic prophetic outpouring of the Spirit in the End Times.

F. Revelation 11:

The two witnesses will be prophets with unprecedented power.

G. Revelation 12:

John describes the war that breaks out in heaven causing Satan to be cast to the earth during the Tribulation.

H. Revelation 13:

John describes the activities of the Antichrist and the false prophet.

I. Revelation 14:

God will raise up 144,000 Jewish believers. In Revelation 14:6-13, four key prophetic proclamations are pointed out. God promises to judge the followers of the Antichrist.

J. Revelation 15-16:

The seven bowls of wrath are poured out. The bowls of wrath recall the plagues in Egypt released by Moses against Pharaoh (Ex. 7-12).

K. Revelation 17-18:

God promises to destroy Babylon, the evil worldwide economic and religious network that seduces many to follow evil and persecute the saints.

L. Revelation 19:

Jesus marches into Jerusalem as the Warrior-King to end the Armageddon campaign by defeating the Antichrist.

M. Revelation 20:

Satan will be cast into prison as Jesus establishes the Millennial Kingdom. After the Millennial Kingdom comes the great white throne judgment for unbelievers

N. Revelation 21-22:

The New Jerusalem as the eternal dwelling place of believers is described.

 

IV. The Pentateuch (First Five Books of the Bible):

A. Genesis:

See the end of this document for the many passages, though not entire chapters that describe how the covenants made with Abraham and his descendants have multiple End Time implications.

B. Leviticus 26:

This chapter contains the promises of blessings on Israel’s obedience and warnings for her disobedience. There has been a partial fulfillment of this chapter throughout history, most notably in the Babylonian captivity (586 BC), and the destruction of Jerusalem (70 AD). Leviticus 26:14-39 contains the promises of sevenfold punishment on Israel’s rebellion in order to “break the pride of her power” (v.19). The military invasions and assaults against Israel have not been fulfilled in any one historical event. They will come to fullness in the End Times until Israel confesses her iniquity (Le. 26:40; Ho. 5:15).

C. Numbers 23-24:

These chapters contain four prophetic oracles from Balaam to Balak, the king of Moab. Some of these prophetic oracles were partially fulfilled, as King David and other Israelite kings defeated Israel’s enemies. The fullness of these oracles will be fulfilled in the Millennial Kingdom with the final destruction of some nations. Jesus is described as the star that would arise out of Jacob and the scepter that would come out of Israel to crush hostile nations.

D. Deuteronomy 28-30:

Promises of blessings on Israel’s obedience as well as the warnings on her disobedience are given. Some of the curses in Deuteronomy 28:15-68 were seen in the invasions of Babylon (586 BC) and Rome (67-70 AD), when Jerusalem was besieged and destroyed. The details or the full measure of those curses will occur during the Great Tribulation. The fullness of the blessings will occur during the Millennial Kingdom.

E. Deuteronomy 32:

The Song of Moses is sung on the sea of glass in Revelation 15:3. It is a song that describes the leadership of the Lord related to Israel’s unfaithfulness, and His plan to redeem Israel and bless the whole earth. God will provoke Israel to jealousy (vv. 16-21) by the Gentiles, who are a foolish people (v. 21). Then, the Lord that kills and wounds will make alive and heal as He brings ultimate deliverance to Israel from her enemies (vv. 39-42). This will join the Gentiles to the Israelites in rejoicing (v. 43).

 

V. The Psalms (1-90):

A. Psalm 2:

David prophesies of the rage of the nations against Jesus that will fully manifest during the Great Tribulation in the Armageddon campaign. The rage of the nations in this psalm was partially fulfilled when they persecuted the saints in the early Church (Ac. 4:28-31).

B. Psalm 14:

The psalmist prophesies about the fullness of sin that will be expressed by those who will be given over to abominable sin. This will occur in a time of a great falling away and oppression of God’s people.

C. Psalm 24:

Jesus ascends to the holy place as He makes His triumphal entry into Jerusalem, at the time of His Second Coming, after defeating the kings of the earth. This is partially fulfilled in Jesus’ ascension, into the courts of heaven, after he defeated the powers of darkness on the cross of Calvary, as well as by godly saints throughout history who ascend into God’s presence.

D. Psalm 29:

This psalm is a description of Jesus’ great shaking (Hg. 2:6-7, 21) at His second coming. He comes with power and then is enthroned as King forever. His holy ones, and mighty ones are charged to give Him the glory due His awesome name. This chapter focuses on the and awesome power of His voice which will strike the nations and strip the land bare.

E. Psalm 45:

This song of love describes Jesus at the Armageddon campaign warring against His enemies to establish truth, meekness, and righteousness in the whole earth for the Millennial Kingdom.

F. Psalm 46:

This psalm describes the assurance we can have in the midst of the Great Tribulation. The psalm calls us to meditate during the terrifying end-time events. The immediate context of this song was related to King David’s victory over his enemies, and the corresponding peace that followed related to the kingdom of Israel. Jesus will ultimately bring a total end to war as stated in verses 8-9. The millennial river seen Ezekiel 47 is pictured in Psalm 46:4.

G. Psalm 47:

Verse 3 of this psalm depicts Jesus during the Millennial Kingdom. Some see this passage as describing the time the Ark of the Covenant was brought into Jerusalem with much celebration (2Sa. 6).

H. Psalm 48:

During the Millennium, human kings are filled with awe as they gather outside of millennial Jerusalem. These kings are in a panic and they flee (Ps. 48:5) before the terrifying majesty of Jesus’ throne of glory.

I. Psalm 50:

Millennial Jerusalem is described as shining forth. God’s judgment of the wicked is also revealed.

J. Psalm 52:

A description of the Antichrist and his ways. He will be a man full of boasting, of deceit, of violence and war, he will use his supreme position in the Earth to conquer and to exploit for his own evil desires. He will ultimately fail however and be brought to everlasting ruin in the lake of fire.

K. Psalm 53:

David again prophesies about the fullness of sin that will be expressed by those who are given over to abominable sin. He is singing of a time in which there is a great falling away and oppression of God’s people.

L. Psalm 55:

David prophesies as though speaking as End Time Israel calling out to God because of the Antichrist aggression and betrayal. Israel will be rescued and taken into the wilderness where she will be taken care of for the 3 ½ years of the Great Tribulation (Ez. 20:35-38; Re. 12:6, 13-16). Many details about the origin (Is. 14:20; Da. 11:37) and character of the Antichrist are made clearer in this Psalm as well as a real view into the perspective of the nation of Israel that realizes her grave mistake (Is. 28:15-18).

M. Psalm 58:

Jesus’ end-time judgments against wickedness and the rewards of the righteous are described.

N. Psalm 67:

Jesus will show forth His power to save and lead every nation on earth.

O. Psalm 68:

David describes Jesus’ march through the wilderness scattering His enemies and freeing captives during His Second Coming procession. David uses the imagery of the exodus and Sinai (vv. 4, 11-19) to foreshadow the great end-time deliverance of God’s people (vv. 24-35).

P. Psalm 72:

This is a prayer describing the fullness of Jesus’ reign over the earth that provides abundant provision for all, and fills the nations with His glory. This is also an actual prayer for Solomon as king of Israel, the successor to the throne, during David’s last days. The scope and fullness of this will only be expressed during the reign of Jesus as the greater David.

Q. Psalm 75:

The full cup of God’s wrath on the nations, as seen in Revelation 14, is proclaimed in this psalm.

R. Psalm 76:

This Psalm describes the time of peace that follows the events of the Great Tribulation. The kings of the Earth bring their gifts to the Messiah as He has triumphed over His enemies.

S. Psalm 79:

Israel’s prayer for deliverance in the Great Tribulation (Re. 11:1-2) is set forth in this psalm. Some of these events were fulfilled in part in Israel’s Babylonian captivity in 586 BC as well as in the atrocities of Antiochus Epiphanies in the fourth century.

T. Psalm 80:

Israel’s distress in the Great Tribulation and her intercession for the Lord to deliver them is the theme of this. There is no agreement among scholars regarding the certainty of a partial fulfillment.

 

VI. The Psalms (81-150):

A. Psalm 83:

During the Great Tribulation, Israel prays for deliverance from a ten-nation confederation. This lament has applications in the anti-Semitism that has occurred throughout Israel’s history. It has partial fulfillment in the events of the Babylonian exile, Assyrian exile, and the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD, etc.

B. Psalm 85:

This is a prophetic prayer for Israel’s return to the land at the end of the age, when the Lord takes away “all” His wrath. There was a partial fulfillment in the Assyrian invasion and in the Babylonian captivity.

C. Psalm 87:

The fullness of this passage speaks of the glory of Jerusalem and the Jewish people, who are physically and spiritually (born again) in Zion, during the Millennial Kingdom. This register is described in Hebrews 12:23, pointing to the born-again Jewish people registered in the heavenly Jerusalem (He. 12:23).

D. Psalm 91:

The Church is here shown in the midst of the Great Tribulation operating in power, confidence and divine protection. The Antichrist and his evil network will increase their threats and advances against the Church but God will answer by equipping His Bride with all she needs to endure and overcome.

E. Psalm 93:

Jesus is seen as Yahweh who has clothed Himself with strength and is celebrated as a victorious Warrior-King. Jesus’ end-time victory is portrayed here, resulting in the earth standing firmly established.

F. Psalm 96:

At Jesus’ Second Coming all the earth will worship Jesus with trembling. Singing a new song is referenced nine times in Scripture (Ps. 33, 40, 96, 98, 144, 149; Is. 42; Re. 5, 14). In each reference, with the possible exception of Ps. 40, the scope of the song is global. It includes humanity and creation in context to Jesus coming as Judge of the earth. The new song (Is. 42:10, Re. 5:8-14) declares the new things (Is. 42:9) before they come to pass, namely, the universal recognition of Jesus as Yahweh resulting in saints ruling with Him on the earth.

G. Psalm 97:

Here is seen the coming splendor of the King of Glory out of Heaven to the Earth at the time of the 7th Trumpet and there after His procession to Jerusalem. Israel sees her Messiah coming with brightness and strength.

H. Psalms 98-99:

After He releases His judgments the whole Earth will worship Jesus as He rules and reigns the Millennial Earth.

I. Psalm 102:

Israel’s despair and her future restoration in the Millennial Kingdom are indicated.

J. Psalm 110:

The fullness of the passage describes Jesus’ reign in the Millennium and His end-time judgment of the nations. This psalm is partially fulfilled by Jesus’ ministry through the church after His resurrection. Psalm 110 is the Old Testament passage that is the most quoted in the New Testament. It is directly quoted six times (Mt. 22:44; Mk 12:36; Lk 20:42; Ac 2:34; He. 1:13; 10:13) and has a total of twenty-five direct or indirect allusions to it. The two main themes in Psalm 110 are Jesus’ eternal, kingly and priestly ministry. In Psalm 110, the Father speaks two oracles to Jesus. First, the Father invites Jesus to sit with Him as a King forever (v. 1). Then, He gives Jesus spiritual responsibilities as a priest forever (v. 4).

K. Psalm 118:

The fullness of this occurs when Jesus delivers Israel at the time of His Second Coming. The psalm was partially fulfilled at Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem just before His death on the cross (vv. 22, 25-26). Jesus referred to this psalm in Matthew 23:39, stating that He would not enter Jerusalem until the leaders declare, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord (Ps. 118:26; Mt. 23:39).”

L. Psalm 147:

Jesus will rebuild Jerusalem and gather His people from the nations after His return.

M. Psalm 149:

Israel will partner with Jesus in executing judgments on the nations of the earth.

VII. The Book of Isaiah (Chapters 1-30):

A. Isaiah 2:Jesus will rule all the nations from Jerusalem in the Millennial Kingdom.

B. Isaiah 3:

The leadership of Israel in the last days is taken away from them and judged because of their malpractice. God promises to judge both the people and their leaders (the antichrist is here in view).

C. Isaiah 4:

The Millennial Kingdom is under Jesus as the Branch of the Lord (Je. 23:5, 33:15; Zch. 3:8, 6:12).

D. Isaiah 5:

God’s judgment and salvation for Israel is at the end of the age. This was partially fulfilled when God disciplined Israel through the Assyrian invasion in 721 BC.

E. Isaiah 9:

During Jesus’ return, He will defeat the Antichrist, who is invading Israel. This passage was partially fulfilled by the invasion of the Assyrian king, Sennacherib, in Isaiah’s generation. However, the details of this passage were not completely fulfilled at that time. There was not a time of “multiplication and great joy” in the “dividing of the spoil” by which the garments and instruments of the slain army were “burned as fuel for the fire” (9:3-4). Neither was the promised Child established in His government on the throne of David, and over His kingdom with justice and righteousness across the earth (9:7). The Throne of David speaks of the earthly dimension of the Messiah’s reign.

F. Isaiah 10:

This chapter tells much of the story line between Israel’s judgment, the Antichrist’s aggression and pride, and then God’s response to both parties in His promised deliverance.

G. Isaiah 11:

Jesus is reigning in the Millennial Kingdom and judges the wicked nations.

H. Isaiah 12:

This prophetic song is sung by Israel after Jesus delivers her from the oppression of the Antichrist and begins the Millennial Kingdom as described in Isaiah 11. Chapters 11-12 illustrate the glorious picture of God’s rule of the earth going forth from Zion after Jesus gathers and restores Israel.

I. Isaiah 13:

Isaiah describes the fall of Babylon at the end of the age. The Babylonian oppression of Judah (605-539 BC) was stopped when they were defeated by the Persians in 539 BC. Babylon will be rebuilt and established in Iraq (50 miles south of Baghdad). It will be restored and used as one of the headquarters for the Antichrist. Babylon will function as the center of the worldwide demonic, religious and economic networks (Is. 13-14; Je. 50-51; Re. 17-18). The judgments prophesied against Babylon in Jeremiah 50-51, describe her sudden and permanent destruction. These have not yet occurred in fullness.

J. Isaiah 14:

The ultimate defeat of Satan and the Antichrist occurs at the end of the age. Only the Antichrist and his fate as described in Revelation 19:20, fit the description of a Babylonian king without a tomb or a grave (vv.18-20). He will be cast alive into the Lake of Fire. This prophecy was partially fulfilled in the judgment against Babylon in 539 BC by Persia.

K. Isaiah 15-16:

A prophecy against the nation of Moab, modern day Jordan, that will be fulfilled at the return of Christ. The Antichrist will be advancing greatly against Israel (Is. 16:4-5) and all the surrounding nations but Christ will intercept him before he is able to completely conquer Moab (Da. 11:41). Then it will be Christ who brings punishment to this region because of their hostility toward Israel (Zph. 2:8-11). Moab will then be forced to bring tribute to Israel and serve her (Is. 16:1).

L. Isaiah 17:

This chapter shows the attitudes of the peoples of the Earth (Is. 18:7, 9, 12) during the Last Days judgments, including God’s interaction with Israel and those who mistreat her.

M. Isaiah 18:

God promises to move on behalf of Ethiopia against the Antichrist when his armies are defeated by Jesus at Armageddon (Is. 18:4-6). In Daniel 11:42-43, the Antichrist will invade Ethiopia and Egypt. The Lord will deliver Egypt (Is. 19) and Ethiopia (Is. 18) during the time of Jesus’ Second Coming. Verse 7 describes “in that time” as being the end of the age. Ethiopia and Assyria will bring their gifts of worship to Jesus.

N. Isaiah 19:

There will be a national revival in Egypt at the time of Jesus’ Second Coming (19:18-22). The details of Egypt and Assyria serving one another, having economic and political harmony (the highway), Egypt becoming God’s people, Assyria being the work of His hands, and Israel as Jesus’ inheritance, have not yet been fulfilled in history, but will be after the Second Coming.

O. Isaiah 21:

The final fall of Babylon occurs at the end of the age and signifies the fullness of this prophecy. This passage was partially fulfilled during the fall of Babylon in 529 BC, and was a cause for rejoicing because it resulted in the release of the Jewish exiles. The exiles were free to return to the land and rebuild the temple.

P. Isaiah 22:

Jerusalem’s fall under the future Antichrist campaign against the city. Isaiah lays out very clearly in this chapter why Israel will be given over to this oppressor; it is because she refused to repent and cry out to her God (Is. 22:12-14) under the leadership of the nation. The later part of the chapter is a rebuke and future promise with regard to Israel’s leadership following after Him in night and day prayer as the House of David was commanded to do (Is. 22:22; see also Re. 3:7; 2Ch. 8:14, 29:25, 35:2-4, 15, 20; Ne. 12:45).

Q. Isaiah 23:

The city of Tyre (northeastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea) will be rebuilt and will play a major role in the global commerce (Is. 23:8-9, 14) in the coming time before Babylon’s preeminence. This city will be destroyed by the Antichrist (perhaps before his full fledged rise to power) and so set the stage for Babylon’s economic supremacy in the earth.

R. Isaiah 24:This describes a universal judgment during the Great Tribulation and Millennial Kingdom. Verse 21 speaks of judgment on the kings of the earth.

S. Isaiah 25:Isaiah describes the Millennial Kingdom. This includes Jesus’ great feast with His people, God’s deliverance of Israel, and the permanent removal of death by the resurrection of the dead.

T. Isaiah 26-27:The song of Judah is about God’s faithfulness and includes a reference to the resurrection (26:19). Isaiah 27:12 speaks of an ingathering of the Israelites from Assyria and Egypt at the end of the age.

U. Isaiah 28:The fullness of this prophecy will take place when Israel enters into an alliance with the Antichrist, called the covenant of death. The Antichrist will break this covenant, three and a half years before Jesus’ Second Coming, and then Jerusalem will be trampled (v. 18). This may have been partially fulfilled when Israel made a covenant with Egypt in the face of Assyria’s military aggression in the days of Isaiah. Jesus will deliver Israel at His return as seen in Isaiah 28:16-17 (Mt. 21:42; Mk. 12:10; Lk. 20:17; Ac. 4:11, Ro. 9:33).

V. Isaiah 29:Isaiah prophesies of the judgment and restoration of Israel at the end of the age (vv. 14, 17-24). God will lay siege against Jerusalem causing nations to invade her (Is. 29:1-7; Jo. 3:2; Zph. 3:8; Zch. 12:2-3; 14:2). This passage was partially fulfilled when Sennacherib’s army was defeated supernaturally (Is. 39).W. Isaiah 30:Israel’s full rebellion and judgment (v. 6) will be ultimately fulfilled in the End Times just before the Lord restores her (v. 14-26), and judges the Antichrist, who is called the Assyrian (v. 27-33).

VIII. The Book of Isaiah (Chapters 31-66):A. Isaiah 31:Israel’s end-time national repentance and deliverance from the Antichrist are depicted. The national repentance of verse 7 did not happen in Isaiah’s day. A partial fulfillment of this occurred in the reforms that Hezekiah established.

B. Isaiah 32-33:

The defeat of the Assyrian army prophetically describes the period of the Great Tribulation, in which Jesus comes as the King of Israel. Many Jewish cities were burned in the campaign of 701 BC.

C. Isaiah 34:

God’s end-time judgments against the nations and the destruction of Edom at Jesus’ Second Coming are foretold.

D. Isaiah 35:

Isaiah describes the healing of the land and the people of Israel in the Millennial Kingdom. While this was partially fulfilled in the return of the exiles from Babylon, the permanence of everlasting joy, and the complete elimination of sorrow envisaged in verse 10 indicates a greater fulfillment. The physiological restoration of verses 5-6 began to be fulfilled in the ministry of Jesus and the apostolic church. Israel will see a full ecological restoration (vv. 1, 2, 7) and deliverance (v. 4) during the time of Jesus’ Second
