    • As far as linear events go, yes, some passages refer back to earlier events and then bring us to the present (such as the initial verses of chapter 12) - but Revelation 1:19-20 and 4:1 clearly indicate that the rest of the book of Revelation takes places after the events of chapters 1-3 (which is the church age).
    • Since I hold that Luke 21:11 is a summary statement that looks forward to the statements of Luke 21:25-26, and thus should be viewed in union with Luke 21:25-26 (as per my reasoning above), I would further hold that Luke 21:11, 25-26 are to be viewed in parallel with Matthew 24:29 & Mark 13:24-25.  Now, contextually Matthew 24:29 & Mark 13:24-25 seem to place these events AFTER the "great tribulation" (as per Matthew 24:15-28 & Mark 13:14-23) which is initiated by "the abomination of desolation" (as per Matthew 24:15 & Mark 13:14).  Furthermore, I would hold that "the abomination of desolation" is to be defined as that future event wherein the antichrist will sit "in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God" (as per 2 Thessalonians 2:4 & Revelation 13:1-18), which event seems to initiate the second half of the Tribulation Period (as per Revelation 12-13).  Thus I would hold that the events of Luke 21:11, 25-26, Matthew 24:15, and Mark 13:24-25 are to be viewed in parallel with the seven vial judgments of Revelation 16:1-21 (especially the fourth, fifth, and seventh). (Note: Although I acknowledge that the Book of Revelation contains a number of allegorical elements, I would view the prophecies therein to be a bit more "linear" than Brother Mike seems to hold.)
    • Do not argue just know GOD is the Righteous Judge and curses and blesses! Just keep yourself away from curses and seek GOD’s blessings always; always seek peace! One day we will know everything as we are known! Come soon LORD JESUS!
    • Welcome aboard, Helen. We only have one son, but are thankful that he is serving the Lord. Fellowship with like-minded folks is always sweet. 
    • If we really want to split hairs we shouldn't call it the KJV or the AV since it was not called that in the beginning. Neither title caught on until years later. Not until 1814 was it even called the KJV
