From the time of the signing of the seven year covenant until the Second Coming of Jesus Christ there will be 10½ years; this 10½ years will be divided into three periods of 3½ years each. The first 3½ years is from the signing of the seven year covenant until the placing of the abomination of desolation (spoken of by the prophet Daniel) in the Holy Place. The second period of 3½ years (the second half of the seven year covenant) is the period of the great tribulation. At the end of seven year covenant we enter the third period of 3½ years and the forces of the beast will withdraw from Jerusalem and Judea; however the Jewish temple in Jerusalem will remain in the hands of the local Moslem for another 2 years. Around this time (two years after the end of the seven year covenant and 1½ years before the return of Jesus Christ) four things will happen within a very short period of time in this order.
First: The armies of Russia, Northern Europe (Called the armies of Gog of Magog; in Ezekiel chapters 38 & 39) in alliance with the armies of the beast will invade Israel where they will be destroyed on the mountains of Judea by the power of God.
Second: The Children of Israel will reoccupy the temple site and rededicate the temple. According to the writings of Daniel this event will happen 2,300 days after the abomination has been placed in the Holy Place (Daniel 8:13 - 14); however for the sake of the elect this time will be shortened to 1,979 days (Matthew 24:22).
Third: The 144,000 Children of Judah and Children of Israel will be sealed with the seal of God.
Fourth: The sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light. Jesus Christ tells us that this event will happen in those days following the great tribulation (Mark 13:24).
Jesus Christ tells that the sun and the moon will be darkened in the days after the great tribulation.
