End Times Crib Sheet

[At this time, you may not accept the pre-wrath-post-trib teaching. But it does not hurt to keep an open mind, just in case coming world events change your thinking. So, why don't you copy-paste-print this Crib Sheet onto a single page of paper, and keep it around?]

Through “types and shadows” (allegories), the Old Testament portrays both the First and Second Comings of Jesus Christ. One such prophetic allegory is found within the history of the time just before, when, and after Solomon became king.
This Crib Sheet is a synopsis of how those ancient biblical events reveal End Time events. For the complete story, go to my website (click globe icon under my name).

End Times Crib Sheet

Events at the time Solomon came into his kingdom presage End Time events when Christ comes into his Kingdom.
Solomon was a type and foreshadower of Jesus. Both men were literally Princes of Peace. God’s promises to David about Solomon – to establish his throne forever, he to be David’s seed, he to build the house of the LORD, he to be God’s son – apply equally and ultimately to Jesus Christ.

The Great Tribulation of the End Times and the Seals of Revelation 6
In the days of David and Solomon, “Satan stood up against Israel…” // In the Latter Days, “The Dragon [Satan] stood before the Woman [Church]…”
1st Seal: King David, due to a Satan-inspired pride of power, mustered his whole army. // In Revelation 6, the White Horse sets out to conquer: rising up of self-exalting false christs.
2nd - 4th Seals: David was confronted with “famine, sword, and plague;” // the same as the 3rd, 2nd, and 4th Seals of Rev. 6.
5th Seal: Innocent Israelites were killed in David’s day; // martyrs are slain in the Latter Days.
6th Seal: In David’s day, the Angel of the LORD appeared to David and others, “standing between earth and heaven.” People fell on their faces and hid themselves, greatly afraid. God then cut short their period of tribulation. // In the Latter Days, Christ appears “in the clouds.” People see his face; many hide themselves, greatly afraid. The Great Tribulation is cut short.

The Rapture(s)
David and his elders – the elect of Israel – were called to “go up” onto holy Mount Moriah. {After being sanctified “from heaven by fire,” they returned to work below. 1 Chr. 21:26} // The 144,000 – the elect Israel – are “caught up” to the heavenly Mount Zion. {After receiving “the seal of the living God,” they return to work below. Rev. 7:2f.; 9:1-4}

{David and the others found Ornan up on Mount Moriah; he had been “threshing wheat” in the presence of the Angel of the LORD. 1 Chr. 21:20-21 // The Manchild of Rev. 12 has been “caught up” and has begun its (their) work some time before the Rapture of the elect. Rev. 12:5, 10-11}

David’s servants took up a virgin to his palace in Jerusalem. // The Lord’s angelic servants take up the Virgin Church to the Father’s house in heavenly Jerusalem.

David “gathered together all the leaders of Israel,” and ordered their service on Earth before God. // The Lord “gathers together his elect,” and orders their service in heaven before God.

The Era of Revelation’s Trumpets and the Beast
Adonijah exalted himself to be king over all Israel: this in direct defiance of King David and his court. // The Beast of Revelation 13, via his “Mouth(piece),” exalts himself to be ruler over all nations: he openly defies God and his heavenly host.

Adonijah’s chief supporters were a renegade earthly priest, Abiathar, and a power-wielding strongman, Joab. // The Beast’s chief supporters are a renegade heavenly priest, Satan, and the power-wielding False Prophet.

A trumpet was blown, Solomon was loudly proclaimed king, the earth shook. // The 7th Trumpet is blown, Christ is loudly proclaimed King, an earthquake follows.

The Era of Revelation’s Bowls and the Judgment of the Beast
After a period of time, Adonijah rose up once more. Solomon sentenced him and his strongman to death, and banished his rebellious allied priest. // At the 6th and 7th Bowls, the Beast attempts his final usurpation. Christ sentences him and his strongman False Prophet to the second death, and banishes the renegade heavenly priest Satan to the Abyss.

The Millennial Temple
His kingdom then fully secured, Solomon built a great temple in Jerusalem. // His Kingdom fully secured, Christ establishes a great temple in Jerusalem.

What? Scripture passage, please.

Oh, all right. Now you could have gone and read the Kingdoms article and found out...
But if you want to miss out on all that good stuff:

1Kings 1:1 Now King David was old, advanced in years; and they put covers on him, but he could not get warm. 2 Therefore his servants said to him, “Let a young woman, a virgin, be sought for our lord the king, and let her stand before the king, and let her care for him; and let her lie in your bosom, that our lord the king may be warm.” 3 So they sought for a lovely young woman throughout all the territory of Israel, and found Abishag the Shunammite, and brought her to the king.

Okay, since you insisted, I went to the site and read this:


The Rapture


David’s servants took up a virgin to his palace in Jerusalem. // The Lord’s angelic servants take up the Virgin Church to the Father’s house in heavenly Jerusalem.




Personally, I believe this comparison to be an unwarranted stretch to your case. King David, at the time of this incident, was old and infirm. Part of his decline was frequent physical coldness. Here's the Bible passage:

1 Kings 1:1-4 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
David in Old Age

1 Now King David was old, advanced in age; and they covered him with clothes, but he could not keep warm. 2 So his servants said to him, “Let them seek a young virgin for my lord the king, and let her attend the king and become his nurse; and let her lie in your bosom, that my lord the king may keep warm.” 3 So they searched for a beautiful girl throughout all the territory of Israel, and found Abishag the Shunammite, and brought her to the king. 4 The girl was very beautiful; and she became the king’s nurse and served him, but the king did not cohabit with her.


According to this passage, Abishag's relationship with King David was simply that of nurse/caretaker. She was in no way a wife to him. She was a servant.

How does the Bible describe the relationship of the Virgin (i.e., the Raptured believers) to King Jesus? Let's see:

Revelation 19:7-8 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Marriage of the Lamb

7 Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready.” 8 It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.


According to this passage, King Jesus is taking a bride--a wife. She is not simply a servant. She is made one with Him.


Evidently, not all virgins are equal in the Bible. IMHO, Abishag is not a good comparison to the Bride of Christ.
