What is the doctrine of Eschatology, and why is it so important to the New Testament Church?  Does the Bible provide clarity on the chronology of end time events?

Eschatology is the study of the doctrine or teachings in the Bible concerning the end times, more specifically, of the period of time dealing with the return of Christ and the events that follow.

Eschatological subjects commence with the Rapture followed by the Tribulation, the Millennium, the Final Judgment, Armageddon, and the New Heavens and the New Earth.

In the New Testament, eschatological chapters include (but not limited to);
Matt. 24, Mark 13, Luke 17, 1 Thess. 4:13;5:1,9; and 2 Thess. 2. In one form or another most of the books of the Bible deal with end-times subjects. But some that are more prominently eschatological are Daniel, Ezekiel, Isaiah, Joel, Zechariah, Matthew, Mark, Luke, 2 Thessalonians, and of course Revelation.

Why is understanding the doctrine Eschatology so important?

First, Because of its prominence in Scripture. Next to the Gospel of Christ, eschatology is the most emphasized subject in the Bible.

Finally, Because God's Word provides a clarity about the future. The fact of eschatology is intended to comfort the believer
(
1 Thess. 4:18) and conform us to the likeness of Christ (1 John 3:3).

The Bible is not vague about the chronology of events concerning end times.  Note the chronology of events that are certain to happen:

#1:
The Rapture Of The Church (This could happen now)
1 Thess. 4:15,17; 1 Cor. 15:51,53

#2:
The Judgment Seat Of Christ (This will happen in heaven where believers will be judged according to their works and receive or lose rewards.
2 Cor. 5:10; Romans 14:10-12

#3:
The Marriage Of The Lamb (This will happen in the heavenlies)
Rev. 19:7

#4: The Seven Sealed Book - The Crisis (This will occur right after the rapture)
Rev. 4

#5:
The Great Tribulation (Known also as: Jacob's Trouble & Daniel's 70th week)

#6:
The Second Coming of Christ (Will be visible and invincible)
Rev. 1:7

#7: The Millennium (The Reign of Christ on Earth For one-thousand years)
Rev. 20:4

#8: The Final Revolt Of Satan -
Revelation 20:7,9

#9: The Great White Throne Judgment (Where Sinners Are judged and cast into the lake of fire)
Rev. 20:11,15

#10: The Destruction Of This Present Earth And Surrounding Heavens
2 Peter 3:10,11

#11: The New Creation Of Heaven And Earth -
Revelation 21:1

The chronology of events clearly present the wisdom of God in all His doings. How fortunate we are as believers to know the Lord Jesus Christ.
   

Sincerely, Dr. Arthur Belanger
