I tried to keep it short, sorry
As Christians we shouldn't worry about the end of days and just live life as Christ has asked us to, believing His return is imminent . If you live like that then prophecy will tend to take care of itself.
The Beast of Revelation, Nero Caesar ("Neron Qesar" in Hebrew, with a Gematria value of 666), has already committed his rampages. Most of Revelation has already been fulfilled; at this point, we are living in The Church Age (figuratively, "a thousand years" or "a long aeon of time"). There's nothing left in Prophecy to "happen" except the Second Coming and the Last Judgment, which happens pretty much all at once and could happen at any time -- or not for another 2,000 years, we just don't know.
No Secret Rapture, No Great Tribulation, No Left Behind, No Battle of Armageddon (sorry, but Titus and Vespasian already gathered the Armies of the Beast together in the valley of Megiddo and destroyed Jerusalem with catapult hail-stones the weight of a talent back in the 3.5-year "time, times, and half a time" Jewish Wars of AD 66-70. Already happened). We're not waiting for anything "still to come" on the Prophetic calendar, except the Return of Jesus Christ.
Could come at any time, or maybe not any time soon. For all we know, God has it Predestined for the exact calendar day that the last of us fools stops trying to guess when it's going to happen. :D
