Revelation 12 (NKJV™)
1 Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.
2 Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.
3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads.
4 His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born.
5 She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne.
6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.
7 And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought,
8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer.
9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, "Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down.
11 "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
12 "Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time."
13 Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child.
14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.
15 So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood.
16 But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth.
17 And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
Revelation 13 (NKJV™)
1 Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.
2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.
3 And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast.
4 So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?"
5 And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months.
6 Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven.
7 It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.
8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear.
10 He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.
12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.
14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.
15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.
16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads,
17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.
Revelation 14 (NKJV™)
1 Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father's name written on their foreheads.
2 And I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder. And I heard the sound of harpists playing their harps.
3 They sang as it were a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth.
4 These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being firstfruits to God and to the Lamb.
5 And in their mouth was found no deceit, for they are without fault before the throne of God.
6 Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth--to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people--
7 saying with a loud voice, "Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water."
8 And another angel followed, saying, "Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication."
9 Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand,
10 "he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.
11 "And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name."
12 Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.
13 Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, "Write: 'Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.'" "Yes," says the Spirit, "that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them."
14 Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle.
15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, "Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe."
16 So He who sat on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped.
17 Then another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
18 And another angel came out from the altar, who had power over fire, and he cried with a loud cry to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, "Thrust in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for her grapes are fully ripe."
19 So the angel thrust his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of the earth, and threw it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.
20 And the winepress was trampled outside the city, and blood came out of the winepress, up to the horses' bridles, for one thousand six hundred furlongs.
Revelation 15 (NKJV™)
1 Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous: seven angels having the seven last plagues, for in them the wrath of God is complete.
2 And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God.
3 They sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying: "Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the saints!
4 Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your name? For You alone are holy. For all nations shall come and worship before You, For Your judgments have been manifested."
5 After these things I looked, and behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened.
6 And out of the temple came the seven angels having the seven plagues, clothed in pure bright linen, and having their chests girded with golden bands.
7 Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God who lives forever and ever.
8 The temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from His power, and no one was able to enter the temple till the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.
Revelation 16 (NKJV™)
1 Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, "Go and pour out the bowls of the wrath of God on the earth."
2 So the first went and poured out his bowl upon the earth, and a foul and loathsome sore came upon the men who had the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image.
3 Then the second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it became blood as of a dead man; and every living creature in the sea died.
4 Then the third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.
5 And I heard the angel of the waters saying: "You are righteous, O Lord, The One who is and who was and who is to be, Because You have judged these things.
6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, And You have given them blood to drink. For it is their just due."
7 And I heard another from the altar saying, "Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments."
8 Then the fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and power was given to him to scorch men with fire.
9 And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory.
10 Then the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom became full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues because of the pain.
11 They blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and did not repent of their deeds.
12 Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared.
13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
14 For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
15 "Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame."
16 And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon.
17 Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, "It is done!"
18 And there were noises and thunderings and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth.
19 Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And great Babylon was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.
20 Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
21 And great hail from heaven fell upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent. Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great.
Revelation 17 (NKJV™)
1 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, "Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters,
2 "with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication."
3 So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.
5 And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
6 I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement.
7 But the angel said to me, "Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns.
8 "The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
9 "Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits.
10 "There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time.
11 "And the beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition.
12 "The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast.
13 "These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast.
14 "These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful."
15 Then he said to me, "The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues.
16 "And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire.
17 "For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled.
18 "And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth."
Revelation 18 (NKJV™)
1 After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory.
2 And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, "Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!
3 "For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury."
4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, "Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.
5 "For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.
6 "Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her.
7 "In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, 'I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.'
8 "Therefore her plagues will come in one day--death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.
9 "The kings of the earth who committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning,
10 "standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, 'Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.'
11 "And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore:
12 "merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, silk and scarlet, every kind of citron wood, every kind of object of ivory, every kind of object of most precious wood, bronze, iron, and marble;
13 "and cinnamon and incense, fragrant oil and frankincense, wine and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men.
14 "The fruit that your soul longed for has gone from you, and all the things which are rich and splendid have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all.
15 "The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
16 "and saying, 'Alas, alas, that great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls!
17 'For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.' Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance
18 "and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, 'What is like this great city?'
19 "They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying, 'Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate.'
20 "Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!"
21 Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, "Thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore.
22 "The sound of harpists, musicians, flutists, and trumpeters shall not be heard in you anymore. No craftsman of any craft shall be found in you anymore, and the sound of a millstone shall not be heard in you anymore.
23 "The light of a lamp shall not shine in you anymore, and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall not be heard in you anymore. For your merchants were the great men of the earth, for by your sorcery all the nations were deceived.
24 "And in her was found the blood of prophets and saints, and of all who were slain on the earth."
Revelation 19 (NKJV™)
1 After these things I heard a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, "Alleluia! Salvation and glory and honor and power belong to the Lord our God!
2 "For true and righteous are His judgments, because He has judged the great harlot who corrupted the earth with her fornication; and He has avenged on her the blood of His servants shed by her."
3 Again they said, "Alleluia! Her smoke rises up forever and ever!"
4 And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sat on the throne, saying, "Amen! Alleluia!"
5 Then a voice came from the throne, saying, "Praise our God, all you His servants and those who fear Him, both small and great!"
6 And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, "Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!
7 "Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready."
8 And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
9 Then he said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!'" And he said to me, "These are the true sayings of God."
10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, "See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."
11 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.
12 His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.
13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.
15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, "Come and gather together for the supper of the great God,
18 "that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great."
19 And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army.
20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21 And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.
Revelation 20 (NKJV™)
1 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
2 He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years;
3 and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while.
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
5 But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
6 Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.
7 Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison
8 and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea.
9 They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them.
10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
11 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.
13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works.
14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.
Revelation 21 (NKJV™)
1 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea.
2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God.
4 "And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away."
5 Then He who sat on the throne said, "Behold, I make all things new." And He said to me, "Write, for these words are true and faithful."
6 And He said to me, "It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.
7 "He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.
8 "But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."
9 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, "Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb's wife."
10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
11 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.
12 Also she had a great and high wall with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
13 three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west.
14 Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
15 And he who talked with me had a gold reed to measure the city, its gates, and its wall.
16 The city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured the city with the reed: twelve thousand furlongs. Its length, breadth, and height are equal.
17 Then he measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel.
18 The construction of its wall was of jasper; and the city was pure gold, like clear glass.
19 The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all kinds of precious stones: the first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald,
20 the fifth sardonyx, the sixth sardius, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst.
21 The twelve gates were twelve pearls: each individual gate was of one pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.
22 But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.
23 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light.
24 And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it.
25 Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there).
26 And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it.
27 But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb's Book of Life.
Revelation 22 (NKJV™)
1 And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb.
2 In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
3 And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him.
4 They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads.
5 There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever.
6 Then he said to me, "These words are faithful and true." And the Lord God of the holy prophets sent His angel to show His servants the things which must shortly take place.
7 "Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book."
8 Now I, John, saw and heard these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things.
9 Then he said to me, "See that you do not do that. For I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book. Worship God."
10 And he said to me, "Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand.
11 "He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still."
12 "And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.
13 "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last."
14 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.
15 But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.
16 "I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star."
17 And the Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.
18 For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book;
19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
20 He who testifies to these things says, "Surely I am coming quickly." Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

DESTINATION: Revelation


The Revelation of Jesus Christ was given to John to show His servants what must soon take place. This book is filled with prophecies of things to come. It is the final warning that the world will surely end and judgment will be certain. It gives us a tiny glimpse of Heaven and all of the glories awaiting the faithful. It takes us through the great tribulation with all its woes, and the final fire that all unbelievers will face for eternity. The book reiterates the fall of Satan and the doom in store for him and his angels.

CALENDAR OF EVENTS:


c. 90-95 A.D.

Writing of the Book of Revelation


TRIP PLANNER:


A simple outline for the Book of Revelation is found in Revelation 1:19. Christ tells John to "Write, therefore, what you have seen, what is now and what will take place later." The things John had already seen are recorded in chapter 1. The "things which are" (that were present in John's day) are recorded in chapters 2-3 (the letters to the churches). The "things that will take place" (future things) are recorded in chapters 4-22.


PLACES OF INTEREST:


Patmos - An island off the coast of Asia Minor in the Aegean Sea, where John received the Revelation of Jesus Christ.


Ephesus - One of the four largest cities in the Roman Empire and a center of culture and trade. Its large amphitheater, capable of holding 24,000 people, was the scene of the riot against Paul described in Acts 19:21-41.


Smyrna - A port city on the Aegean. It was the center of the imperial cult which worshipped the Emperor. Today the city is called Izmir.


Pergamum - A city of 180,000, it contained notable pagan temples. It probably was the official center of the Roman government and was also noted for its practice of emperor worship.


Thyatira - Located on the road from Pergamum to Sardis, it held temples to Apollo and Hellios, but it was more noted as a center of trade guilds and commerce. Association in such trade guilds often involved eating "food sacrificed to idols" (2:20).


Sardis - Located at the junction of the imperial highways linking Pergamum, Smyrna, and Ephesus. It was the capital of the wealthy Croesus, and suffered a devastating earthquake in 17 A.D.


Philadelphia - Even more devastated by the earthquake of 17 A.D. Today it is known as Alasehir.


Laodicea - A very prosperous city whose wealth and reputation were based on its wool and linen industry that produced black cloth, and its manufacture of an eye ointment. Its liability was its limited and foul tasting water supply.


Armageddon - The word occurs only once in the Bible (Revelation 16:16) where it is used to locate the place where the last battle will be fought. The word comes from the Hebrew "Har Megiddo," meaning, the Mount of Megiddo. Because of its strategic location, many battles were fought there in ancient times.


PEOPLE OF INTEREST:


John - The last survivor of the 12 disciples, who received the Revelation of Jesus Christ.


FUN FACTS:


Some who say this book was written before the fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD since the fall of Jerusalem is not mentioned in the book.


666 - Many have speculated what this number (in Revelation 13:17-18) means. Both Hebrew and Greek use their alphabets for counting, so it’s possible to add up the value of the letters of a person’s name and arrive at a sum. Everyone from Nero to Adolph Hitler has been suggested.


Apocalypse, apocalyptic - A Greek word meaning uncovering or revealing. It is the first word of the last book of the New Testament, and hence the book is sometimes called "The Apocalypse."


Eschatology - Eschatos is a Greek word meaning "last." Eschatology, therefore, is a general way of referring to beliefs or teachings regarding the "last things," that is, events that happen in the end times.

Father, we thank You that the wind of Your spirit is blowing in our midst, that the Holy Spirit is working and moving and teaching, and taking us from glory to glory. We thank You that we are redeemed. We thank You, Father that when we gather there is authentic, real joy that happens. We celebrate because of what You have done, and what You are doing, and sometimes though You might not be doing it in our lives, we hear what You are doing in other people's lives, and we equally rejoice. So thankful for our guest tonight, those who are joining us via radio tonight, via the Internet, and who will be later on being a part of these studies. Bless this time in Jesus' name. Amen!

Chapter 1, Verse 19 is the outline to the Book of Revelation. We covered that last week, but we need to cover it again this week simply because we are following the outline John gave us. John was told to write the things which he had seen, that's the vision of Christ in Chapter 1, and he writes that down.

The things which are in the Chapters 2 and 3, the things of the Church, there are seven local churches in Asia Minor, the Church Age, and the things which will take place after these things, and that's the same language we get in Chapter 4 Verse 1.


"After these things," or after these in Greek, meta tauta, he was caught up into Heaven and the Spirit, and he saw things from a heavenly perspective.

That's the outline of the Book of Revelation. One thing I did not tell you last week that I want to tell you tonight, is not everybody shares the same view of the Book of Revelation. There are at least four different eschatological viewpoints or ways to interpret the Book of Revelation, and I want to briefly tell you way what they are.

There's number one, the Preterist view. The Preterist view is from a Latin word, 'preter' which means 'past,' and this view sees the Book of Revelation as already completely fulfilled in about the first three centuries of the Roman Empire. It's done with, it's over with. Now that viewpoint ignores the book's claim a couple of times that it is prophecy. Prophecy, it is four things yet future.

Also there is certain things that if you take that viewpoint, don't fit, like the Second Coming of Jesus Christ in Chapter 19, in Him setting up His kingdom. That didn't happen in the first few centuries of the Roman Empire. So you have a real problem holding the Preterist view as I see it.

Second viewpoint is the Historical view. The Historical view sees the Book of Revelation as a panorama of church history from apostolic times up into the present times. And those who hold this view, claim that they can see within the Book of Revelation the rise and fall of the Roman Empire, the rise of the Catholic Church, the rise of Islam, the French Revolution, on and on, and on. There are several different weird viewpoints in that historical camp all which are conflicting with each other.

There is a third viewpoint, the Allegorical viewpoint. This sees the Book of Revelation as not historical, not literal, it's allegorical. That is, it's simply a picture of the timeless constant struggle between good and evil. That also ignores that it's a prophecy, and the graphic prediction that it is a prophetic book, it ignores that.

And the fourth and final viewpoint is the viewpoint that I hold, that is the Futurist viewpoint. The Futurist viewpoint. We tip our hat to the historical, and we say that part of the book has been fulfilled like the seven letters of the seven churches, but beginning in Chapter 6 to Chapter 22, all of that is yet future, that has not been fulfilled, it will be fulfilled in the future, and the future events that it speaks about are the second coming of Christ, the Millennial kingdom of Christ, the Great White Throne Judgment, and the Eternal State, all of those are yet future.

That fourth viewpoint, the Futurist viewpoint, seems to line up best with scriptures like Matthew, Chapter 24, the words of Jesus about the last days, and it is the only viewpoint that maintains the consistency of interpretation which is the grammatical-historical interpretation of the Bible.

So we are in Chapter 12. We have been following through, and when we left off, we were right in the middle of the Tribulation. Chapter 6 through Chapter 19 deals with the Tribulation period, and there were seven seals and seven trumpets and seven bowls, and each set of judgments ushers in the next set of judgment, so that the seven seals when opened brings forth the next set of judgments, the seven trumpets, and when the seven trumpet is blown, that ushers forth the last and final set, which is the bowl judgment.

With each series of judgments they become progressively more intense, until we are right in the heart of what Jesus called the Great Tribulation. Now when these judgments are over, and they will happen quickly. When it's over, the judgment is over. And Jesus Christ will return.

So Chapter 11, Verse 15 introduces us to the seventh trumpet that is blown, and the seventh trumpet will usher in the last seven judgments, as I mentioned, the bowl judgments, which aren't even listed until Chapter 16. So what we noted last week is that you have chronology followed by parenthesis. Do you remember that? You will have a chronological flow of the tribulation period, and then a parenthesis, or you are catching up to add more information to the story, and then you continue with the chronology, and then you add a parenthesis, and the Chapters 12 through 14 is a huge parenthetical statement.

We are introduced in Chapter 12 to a rare behind the scenes look at the great cosmic struggle between light and darkness, good and evil, Satan, or the kingdom of Satan, and the kingdom of God.

Revelation 12:1-2
"Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars." "And then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth."

Now who is the woman? Well, it depends on who you ask, because a lot of people have identified her with a number of different people or events, or things, or analogies, allegories, but I can tell you with great deal of certainty that this woman is the nation of Israel, and it's because of the scripture that gives us that hint. We mentioned last week that the Book of Revelation is filled with biblical symbolism. So find in the Bible where you have twelve stars, and the sun and the moon, and you will get your answer.

And that takes us back to Genesis 37, when a young man named Joseph had a couple of dreams. Remember that? And the second dream he had, he told his parents and his brothers, and he said, "Hey, I had a dream that the sun, and the moon, and the eleven stars, he is the twelfth, the other eleven stars all bowed down to me." And his dad gave him the interpretation. His dad rebuked him saying, "Shall your mother, and I, and your brothers indeed come to bow down and worship before you?"

So Joseph's father Jacob understood that the dream of sun, moon, twelve stars is Jacob, Rachel, and the twelve boys the eleven bowing down to the twelfth. This is the nation of Israel, and it doesn't surprise us, does it? To see the nation of Israel prominently displayed in last times prophecy. We would expect it, and why would we expect it?

Because we are told in places like Jeremiah Chapter 30, that the tribulation period goes by another name, the time of Jacob's trouble. The time of Jacob's trouble. And even Daniel Chapter 9, during the seventy weeks of Daniel, what did the angels say? He's predicted the future time period that is for your people, that is the Jewish people, the nation of Israel.

So here we see the nation of Israel pictured as emblematically, a woman pregnant and in pain giving birth to a child. The child is none other than Jesus Christ, and we don't have to read very far and we understand that.

Revelation 12:3.
"Another sign appeared in heaven: behold the great fiery-red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems or crowns on his heads."

By the way, Satan is called a dragon thirteen times in the Book of Revelation, and you don't have to guess who the dragon is. You go down to Verse 9 of this Chapter and it tells you that it is Satan, that it is the devil.

Notice his strength, notice his authority. He has seven heads, that speaks of completeness. He has ten horns; a horn is always a biblical symbol of strength. And he has crowns on his head. In other words, this guy is dominating the world. We will see that in Chapter 13 to the Anti-Christ.

Revelation 12:4.
"His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her child as soon as it was born."

Revelation 12:5
"She bore a male child who was to rule all the nations with a rod of iron. And her child was caught up to God and His throne."

In one verse, we go from incarnation to coronation. What a sweep that is in Verse 5. He came, He is eventually going to rule all the nations, He is caught up to God and to His throne.

Satan the dragon hates Israel, the woman. Why is that? Well, it's pretty obvious, why? If he could not only hate, but if he could destroy the woman, then he can prove that God cannot keep His promises to the nation of Israel, and more than that, destroy any hope of this promised messiah or deliverer that the Old Testament spoke about.

So if God's plan of redemption required the existence of a nation, if you could destroy that nation, you will have forded God's plan. And that sums up in a nutshell, the cosmic conflict throughout the Bible, the behind the scenes conflict that goes on in the scripture.

There is a promise back in Genesis, early on Chapter 3 Verses 15 and 16, I'll read it to you.

Genesis 3:15.
"From now on you and the woman, God says to Satan, the serpent, you and the woman will be enemies, and your offspring will be enemies. He, that is your offspring, the male child, He will crush your head, and you will bruise or strike His heel."

So early on, Satan was promised that there is coming someone who is going to crush his head, crush his authority, take away the fangs of authority that he has in this world.

Now if I promised you that after the service tonight, I am going to meet you in the parking lot, and I am going to crush your head, which I never would do that, but if you are reasonably sure that I meant it, you would do everything you could to avoid that possibility, maybe even a counterattack. And so we see Satan attacking the woman, Israel through history to get out the male child who will eventually crush his head.

As the intelligence goes out throughout history, the attack and counterattack from Satan comes. I will give you a few examples. I believe it was Satan that motivated Cain to kill his brother Abel, because Abel would be the promesse that would bring the righteous deliverer, but he was killed. God raised up another seed through Satan.

I believe it was Satan who corrupted the earth so badly that God had to eventually destroy everything on earth and everyone through a worldwide flood, except one family, and through that family, He started bringing his promise to fruition through history.

Later on, I believe it was Satan that prompted Esau to attempt to kill Jacob, because Jacob was also the one who was promised in the lineage.

Later on it was Satan that prompted Pharaoh to give out this weird decree that if a Jewish baby is born that is a male child, you shall kill it. Why on earth would that decree come out? It was satanically inspired to get at the seed that would crush the head of Satan, because he is just learning sort of like the satanic CIA, the entail that's coming from Heaven, i.e., the prophecies through the ages and he is working to counteract that.

We follow through the Old Testament, we see that Saul kills David because he is the messianic line. We see in the Book of Esther that Haman tries to kill all the Jews in the Empire in an attempt to destroy the seed. So his plan was to kill the woman, Israel, before the male child was born, that didn't work. So now once the child is born, as revelation says, he wants to kill the male child.

That's why Herod the Great, issued the decree that all of the male children, all of the babies in Bethlehem be killed from a certain age and younger. He was satanically inspired to destroy the seed that would crush the head, the Satan.

Revelation 12:6
"Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there for one thousand two hundred and sixty days," three-and-a-half years, the last three-and-a-half, the Great Tribulation Period.

Revelation 12:13.
"Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child."

Revelation 12:14.
"But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to a place where she is nourished for a time, times, and half a time." A biblical way of saying three-and-a-half years, from the presence of the serpent.

Satan is in the future going to unleash his fury against the nation of Israel during the tribulation period. It's going to be one of the worst times of persecution for that people group ever. That will require the Israelis to flee and to hide, and the signal for them would be the abomination of desolation, the midpoint of the tribulation, when the Anti-Christ sets himself up as God. Jesus predicted that.

Remember what He said, Matthew 24. When you see the abomination of desolation spoken up by Daniel the Prophet, standing in the Holy Place, whoever reads let him understand, those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.

And it is believed that the mountains Jesus spoke about, and the area that John in Revelation spoke about, is a place called Petra, which some of you have been to, we visited there together. A hidden place, the ancient capital of the Nabataean Kingdom, southeast of the Dead Sea over in Jordan today. A place that is greatly protected by mountains and ravens, a very difficult place for any army to march through.

Either way, God is going to protect them during this time after the abomination of desolation. Now God says, two wings of a great eagle were given to this woman. I did a little digging and discovered that that's a beautiful symbol, emblem of God's protection.

You may remember back is Exodus Chapter 19, I believe, God said to the people of Israel, remember, how I bore you on eagle's wings and brought you to Myself speaking of the deliverance out of Egypt. So it's a beautiful symbol of God's protection.

Now some people believe, I have read this, I can't be dogmatic, I can't be sure one way or the other, but some people see that's the wings of an eagle are the United States, and perhaps it's because some of us are worried that the United States is not plainly mentioned in prophecy, and it worries us. Well, what's going to happen to us? But some have thought this could be maybe the air force and the six naval fleet that's partly stationed in the Mediterranean that's going to help bring them to that area and protect them. It's interesting guess, it's what some believe. So Israel be protected as they flee from the presence of the serpent.

Revelation 13:1.
Then I stood on the sand of the sea and I saw a beast. Chapter 13 introduces us to the one of the most important personalities in that period of time, 'Daniel's 70th Week,' or 'Jacob's Trouble,' or the 'Tribulation Period' that is the Anti-Christ, that's what we typically know him as. He actually goes by 50 different names in the Bible, and probably the last one is the Anti-Christ. Paul calls him the man of sin, also calls him the son of perdition, also calls him the lawless one, it's John who calls him the Anti-Christ in 1 John.

Revelation 13:1
"I stood in the sand of the sea. And I saw a beasts rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, again world dominion authority, and on his heads a blasphemous name."

Revelation 13:4.
"So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast and who is able to make war with him?"

Revelation 13:8.
All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world."

He is called a beast, that's how God sees him. This is from God's perspective.

The world is going to see him as marvelous, eloquent, dynamic, the one we've been waiting for. God calls him a beast. He comes in as a peacemaker.

Revelation 6:2.
"The seal is opened, the first seal, and it comes someone riding on a white horse with a bow, conquering and to conquer." That is the Anti-Christ, that is not Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the one who comes at the end of the tribulation on the white horse with a sword, not a bow. He's the real Christ.

The Anti-Christ is the fake Christ, the fake Messiah. He comes at the beginning making peace. He's going to make peace between Israel and the Arabs, nobody has been able to do that. He's going to promise Israel a peace covenant, that last seven years. He's going to help them rebuild their temple. In the middle of that covenant he'll break it, he'll setup himself up as God.

Paul tells us, 2 Thessalonians.

2 Thessalonians 2:4
"He opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God and seats as God in the temple of God showing himself that he is God." That abomination of desolation is going to take people by surprise, because this guy is going to be so appealing, so charismatic, so dynamic, the ultimate politician, extraordinary.

One commentator says, he will have the oratorical skill of a JFK, the inspirational power of a Churchill, the determination of a Joseph Stalin, the vision of a Karl Marx, the respectability of a Gandhi, the military prowess of a Douglas MacArthur and the genius of a King Solomon. It's quite a package, get somebody that's like that that wows and woos the world, but God says he is the beast. He is a beast.

Revelation 13:16
"He causes all, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave to receive a mark on the right hand or their foreheads." Now this is for economic reasons, this is globalism. This is toward a global economy. So that no one may buy or sell except the one who has a mark, or the name of the beast or the number of his name.

Revelation 13:18
and here is wisdom. Let him, who has understanding calculate the number of the beast for it is the number of a man; his number is 666. "

I do find it very intriguing that over the last decade, but more so recently there is so much talk about globalism, and global economic recovery. And what really has gotten my attention the last few days, is what's been happening with this G-20 Summit. How one of the Russian leaders has proposed that we do away with different currencies, and we strive toward one world currency. I read a little article that said, that the International Monetary Fund might issue the currency and emphasize the need to update the obsolescent unipolar world economic order. What that means is, the dollar, the dollar. It's a thrust toward getting away from the dollars, the standard worldwide and going to a global currency, and we have a global economic recovery, and with that is this interesting speak about the United States, not really having a strong Christian or Jewish underpinning, or what is right and what is wrong. You see, this is what's going to happen with globalism.

Globalism gets rid of dogmatism and dogmatism gets rid of truth. And so is the world's going, yeah, yeah, okay, one world government, one world currency, yeah, we need to get along. It is a perfect setup for being duped by the one who is going to take over and be hailed as the Messiah, and that is the Anti-Christ. He will eliminate truth.

And Chapter 14 is also parenthetic, and it gives the several different announcements. As angelic beings announced things that are happening during this time period. There is one in particular, I draw your attention to in Chapter 14, Verse 6, it's a prediction made by Jesus.

Revelation 14:6
"Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth, to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people." The word nation is ethnos, every ethnic group, every nation, every tribe, every dialect that is spoken. There is going to come a time in the tribulation period, where God is going to give one last ditch, final offer to the world as an angel goes to the heavens and speaks, so that every single human being on earth, no matter what dialect you speak, will be able to hear or if you speak sign language, see, know, what is the message of the everlasting gospel.

Now this is what I want you to notice. The tribulation period is going to be full of evangelism, full of evangelism. It's the worst period on earth, but it will be full of evangelism. There is going to be two witnesses, I believe Moses and Elijah. There is going to be 144,000 Messianic Jewish witnesses. There is going to be also a great multitude of Gentiles killed for their faith, but still innumerable, millions of come to faith in Christ.

Then finally there is going to be an angel that flies through heaven and gets the gospel out. No more will anyone ever be able to come up with this lame argument. What about the people who have never heard? What about the people who live in dark Africa or in places? They are going to hear. Everybody is going to hear. It's going to unmistakable, and this is what I believe Jesus met, when He predicted this. This gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations and then the end shall come.

I want you to know that, because I do not believe in the interpretation that says, we have to get the gospel out. Jesus won't come back for us in the rapture, until we get the gospel out. We are holding Christ back. You can hasten the day of the Lord, that's a bunch of nonsense. Nothing is holding the Lord back from coming. He can come back at any moment, and when Jesus said that everyone's going to hear before He comes, it was His second coming. And He was referring to this everlasting angel. It's going to be preached in every tongue, every tribe, every dialect.

Chapter 15, 8 Verses, shortest Chapter in the Book of Revelation. It's a prelude. It introduces the bowl judgments, the last and worst of this rapid fire judgments, and again, they are rapid fire, and it takes place over a very swift period of time. I think, I think that, that's what Jesus has meant. When He said,

Matthew 24:22
"Unless those days were kept short, no flesh would be saved. But for the elect sake, they would be shortened."

Verse 1 of Chapter 15, is the prelude. Chapter 16, lists them, but look at Verse 1.

Revelation 15:1
"I saw another angel in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them the wrath of God is complete."

Now again, as we noted, that God's judgments in the tribulation period go from seven seals, to seven trumpets, to seven bowls, each one is progressive and more intense.

Now we are in the midst of the worst part of the Great Tribulation period. This is the core of the worst moment in history. Daniel said it will be the worst. Jeremiah said it will be the worst. Jesus, Himself said it will be the worst. When these judgments are done, God's judgment is done. There are no more judgments that He will ever level upon the earth. After these judgments, after the bowl judgments, comes the binding of Satan, the Return of Christ, the Millennial Kingdom.

So look at Chapter 16. Let's just go through them, and we'll read them. Verse 2.

Revelation 16:2-3
"So the first went, and poured out his bowl on the earth; and a foul loathsome sore came upon the men who had the mark of the beast, and those who worshiped his image."

"And the second angel poured out his bowl on the sea; and it became blood as of a dead man and every living creature in the sea died."

If you've lived by the ocean, you know what red tide is. You get that a couple times during the year, red tide, they are the emission of dinoflagellates into the ocean that produce a reaction with the fish and kill the fish, you see thousands millions, miles of these dead fish, and sometimes you see the bacteria itself that turns red and floats on the surface, imagine a mega red tide that kills those creatures in the ocean? That's a possibility.

Revelation 16:4
"A third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood." And it could be with the ocean poisoned and the hydrological cycle upset that it also affects these fresh water sources, since it all sort of interrelates and depends upon that cycle. There is no water to drink, people thirst to death.

Revelation 16:8-9
"A fourth angel poured out his vial on the sun, power was given to him to scorch men with fire." "And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God, who was power over these plagues, and they did not repent and give him glory." Some think its radiation burn, some believe it's when the ozone deteriorates, there is a lot of warning about that. Others believe, there is hydrogen explosions that will take place on the surface of the sun and cause this radiation burn.

Revelation 16:10
"Fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom."

Revelation 16:12
"The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates; and its water was dried up, so that the ways of the kings of the east might be prepared," that is Armageddon, an army of couple hundred million that march across.

Revelation 16:17
"And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air and a loud voice came out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done."

In another words, God has done judgment, it's over. Those days have now ended, been cut short, and there were noises and thunderings, and lightnings, and a great earthquake. Such a mighty and great earthquake as has not occurred since men were on the earth. So this bowl completes the wrath of God and immediately proceeds the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. That's the next event that takes place after this, as there is this massive gathering toward Armageddon.

Now Chapter 17 and Chapter 18, focus on one aspect of these bowl judgments, and that is the system, the kingdom of the Anti-Christ, called Babylon, called Babylon. Chapter 17 is religious or spiritual Babylon. Chapter 18 is commercial Babylon. These are the systems controlled by the world leader and his minions in the tribulation period.

Chapter 19 is the Return of Jesus Christ at the Battle of Armageddon. It's actually been wrongly titled, the Battle of Armageddon, because when you think of a battle, you think of two sides losing casualties. This will not be the case. It won't be like a battle going on, and over here Jesus is the head, but now He is not, and some are being killed and over here it's going to -- it's not a battle it's a wipe out, it's a destruction. He will destroy them, the Bible says, with the brightness of His coming, think back to Psalm 2.

Remember Psalm 2, talks about the kings of the earth have gathered and the people have gathered against the Lord and against His Christ or anointed, saying, let us break their bands in thunder and then it says, "He who seats in the heavens shall laugh." Ha! Ho, ho, you think you are going to fight against Me. No, no, this isn't a battle. This is where Jesus takes over the earth, people aren't voting for Him, or not, it's where He takes over as the Ruler and the King. This is the Second Coming. This is the combination of all the hopes of all mankind of all ages.

For 3500 years, the Jewish people have waited for their Messiah. I told you, I think Sunday or the Sunday before, I get it mixed up, the Jewish prayer, I believe in the coming of Messiah, and even though He may tarry, yet I will wait for Him, every coming day. Of course, they are waiting for His first coming. When He comes in Revelation 19, it would be Messiah, but it will be His second coming.

There is a Rabbi in Chicago, named Rabbi Eckstein, who says he believes the problems that are going out in the Middle East indicate Messianic times. Interesting, Jewish Rabbi, notable, saying, what's going on the Middle East indicates Messianic times. He said, if that is the case, and if the Messiah does come, I have one question to ask Him. Is this Your first visit or second? We know the answer to that. It is His second visit, it's His second coming.

Revelation 19:1
"And after these things I heard a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, Hallelujah!" Oh yeah, we are going to be joining in that chorus. The wrath is over, the judgment is over, the pain is over, the heartache is over, the sorrow and death and tears are over. Salvation and glory and honor and power belong to the Lord, our God.

Go down to Verse 11.

Revelation 19:11-15
"I saw heaven opened, behold a white horse; and he who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war." "His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, which no one knew, except himself." "He was clothed with a rope dipped in blood, and his name is called The Word of God." "And the armies in heaven clothed in fine linen, white and clean followed him on white horses." "And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, and with it he should strike the nations, and he himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God."

Jesus coming back will quell and destroy the armies, hence this analogy of the vintage of somebody going into a great wed and stepping on the grapes and they just splatter and made into juice and wine, that's the image of final judgments, the winepress the harvest.

"He will tread the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

Revelation 19:16-18
"And he has on his robe, and on his thigh a name written, King of Kings and Lord of Lords." "And I saw another angel in the sun, standing in the sun, and he cried out with a loud voice, saying to the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather together for the supper of the great God," "That you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses, and those who sit on them, the flesh of all people free and slave, both small and great."

Did you know that next to the subject of Faith in the Bible, the subject to Faith, next to that subject, the Second Coming is spoken of more than any other subject. The Second Coming is mentioned probably, we believe 1845 times altogether. 318 of those are in the New Testament, one out of every 30 verses in the New Testament gives reference to the Second Coming.

For every one time, the Bible speaks of the First Coming of Jesus or predicts it. The Second Coming is mentioned or predicted 8 times, 8 times. So here we've talk so much about Christmas, Christmas, Christmas. For every one time Christmas is mentioned or the First Coming, that thing, that wonderful work of Messiah. 8 times the Second Coming is alluded to. And for every time atonement is spoken of, the Second Coming is mentioned or alluded to, twice. So it's a very, very hefty subject.

One day the world will be shocked, surprised, as they look up and coming from the sky, like a movie they had seen. It's not a movie. It's real life. It's Jesus coming back, and we are coming with Him, and He is going to end the battle and setup His kingdom and rule and reign on this earth for a thousand years.

And number one, it's going to be permanent. First time it wasn't permanent. He was here for 30 some odd years, and He left, and He'll return, and that will be permanent. And the Second Coming is very different from the First Coming. First time He came as a baby, a helpless baby, not the Second Time. Second Time, He'll come as a warrior king. First time He came, it was gentle Jesus, meek and mild; second time it will be judge Jesus, mighty and riled. He will come to say move over, I am in charge here.

Now the name of the book is Revelation. The Revelation of Jesus Christ. That's what we noted last week. This is the ultimate Revelation of Jesus Christ. As He comes and ends all this mess. This great help of the Second Coming has attached to it some of the greatest songs and hymns in Christianity. The Battle Hymn of the Republic is about the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

"My eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored."
That's all about the Second Coming. He has lose the faithful lightning of His terrible swift sword. His truth is marching on. It's the second coming. When Isaac Watts wrote:

"Joy to the world, the Lord is come!
Let earth receive her King."

It wasn't about Bethlehem, read about what he was thinking, he was thinking of this event, the Second Coming, ruling and reigning. So He comes in Chapter 19, and after this comes the Millennial Kingdom. a 1,000 years, and then the great White Throne Judgment, and then The Eternal State. Chapter 20 introduces us to the Millennium.

Revelation 20:1
"Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand." "He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the devil and Satan."

So now again the dragon is identified as the devil, Satan.

"And bound him for a thousand years."

Notice how long, a thousand years. Now that will be mentioned six times in seven verses, thousand years, thousand years, thousand years, thousand years, thousand years, thousand years. So nobody will go, I wonder how long it is. You really can't be dogmatic or literal about this, thousand years, thousand years, thousand years. Well, it's just sort of maybe a thousand years. So don't mistake, it's a thousand year period. That's where we get the term Millennium. Mille annus in Latin, a thousand years.

Revelation 20:4
"And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus, and for the Word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or its image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years."

Revelation 20:6
"Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years."

Now understand that there are hundreds of biblical text that referred to this time period, the Kingdom Age, it goes by several different titles, it's described by prophets, but only here do we get the length of time. So when we put all of the text together with the last book of the Bible, we understand what will happen and for how long it will happen. This is what Jesus referred to in Matthew Chapter 19, Verse 28. He called this the regeneration when the Son of man sits on His throne in glory and He promises His apostles to sit with Him and to judge and reign over the 12 tribes of Israel.

Acts Chapter 3, the kingdom is called the times of refreshing, and also in that chapter the time of the restoration of all things.

Ephesians 1:10.
"Paul said, when the dispensation of the fullness of the times have come."

There are many references to this time period, we simply put it all together and call it the Millennium. What is it? In short, it's an extreme makeover of this earth. We have trashed this earth, and before you go, yeah dude, I am with you, green all the way, and I don't want to get down on that, but we have trashed the earth. If you think we've trashed it, what do you see what God does with it in the tribulation, He is going to like mega trash it, and then He is going to take the earth that He trashed, and has the right to, because He is going to judge it, He made it, He is going to give it a makeover, not a new one, this one, made over, an extreme makeover. There will be massive geographical, topological climatic changes that restored this earth to its former glory, I.e., Garden of Eden type environment.

The most compelling reason to take this whole Millennium business literally, and not allegorically, not figuratively, like the amillenialists like to do, is simply there is no other way to interpret it fairly, because as soon as you start saying, well, we interpret prophecy figuratively, but everything else literally. I am going to ask you, on what basis do you have the right to do that? On what basis can you say, that's literal, but that's not, that's literal but that's not? Because when Jesus said that He is the only way to have that, well, maybe He just meant that figuratively.

He said, oh no, it's literal, and so is everything else. You may have emblematic language that speak of a literal event, but the thousand year period is a literal event. and here is why? If thousand doesn't mean thousand, then what does it mean? You are going to have to make something up, and your neighbor might be an allegorist and make something else up, and you are going to have 15 billion conflicting interpretations of it. If a thousand doesn't mean a thousand, you have big problems, because the Book of Revelation is very exact. Here is an example, there are seven churches, there are 12 tribes, there are 12 apostles, there are 1/3 of mankind. There are two witnesses, there are 42 months, there are 1,260 days, there are 12,000 furlongs, you get the picture. Very exact numbers. If none of that means anything that it says, then why did God spend a whole book writing about something that's not going to happen, that really didn't mean that? So the best way to interpret it, is a grammatical historical interpretation and take this as literal.

Verse 11 introduces to the Great White Throne, we'll move quickly.

Revelation 20:11-15
"I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and heaven fled away."

As we read this, I want you to just read this very somberly if you can. This is the most sobering moment in all of world history, past, present and future.

"From whose face the earth and heaven fled away, there was found no place for them." "And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books." The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works." "Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death." "And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire."

Most sobering, somber moment in history and in the Bible. It's a courtroom scene, very unlike and earthly courtroom scene, very, very different. There is no debate about guilt in this courtroom scene. There is prosecution, there is no defense, there is a judge, there is no jury. There is a sentence, there is no appeal, and there is punishment and there is no parole. It's the Great White Throne Judgment, it's the final judgment of the loss of the damned as the Theologians like to say.

Chapter 21 and 22 is called the Eternal State, the Eternal State. This is the end of the end, this is the eternity of eternity. If you die today, you'll go to heaven, you will behold the throne of God. At some point in the future will be a rapture, saints will be caught up, after which period there will be seven years of tribulation, the first three-and-half years sort of mild, the last three-and-half years really, really, really bad. Jesus will then come back at the end, makeover the earth of your thousand years ruling and reigning, Satan who is bound will be released momentarily. There will be an uprising that will be quelled, after that Great White Throne Judgment. After that The Eternal State, and it stays that way for ever and ever and ever, the Eternal State is the New Heaven and the New Earth, and the capital city, New Jerusalem. This is the ultimate phase, this is the final phase.

Revelation 21:1
"I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, also there was no more sea."

Okay, the millennium was a makeover. Now it's destroyed, this earth will eventually be destroyed by fire, Peter said. Jesus will make a new one, God will make a new one. Jesus said, heaven and earth will pass away, but My Word will never pass away. So this is it, this is a new heaven and a new earth.


Revelation 21:2
"Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband."

The word New Jerusalem, New Heaven, New Earth is the word kinos not naos, it's not just new in time and chronology, it's fresh, it's different, it's altogether totally cool and totally different in the first one, that's the idea.

Revelation 21:3-5
"And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they will be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God." "And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away."

"And He sat on the throne said, "Behold, I make all things new!" And he said to me, "Write this: 'These words are faithful and true.'"

I imagine John has just sort of taken, he is looking, new heaven, new earth, new Jerusalem. He is going like this. God had to say, wake up boy, write this down. This is going in the Bible man, this is the Book of Revelation. Write this, this is faithful and true. Now some people in reading this are very uncomfortable with heaven, at least part of it being one gigantic city. You go, oh no, I pictured a mansion out in the country, a big city, and it is a big city, it's 15,000 miles wide, 15,000 miles deep, 15,000 miles long. It's like a big cube coming out of heaven.

You see even I, when I read this, I say, okay, if I am writing the book, and I am not, thank the Lord. If I am writing the book, it's going to say, something like this, and there was no more city, not no more sea. It's going to say, and there were no more cities, but there was lots of seas, and lots of beaches. That's where I go with it. Apparently, God doesn't agree with me, Apparently, God believes that we were created for social interaction, and heaven is going to be the ultimate social interaction, ultimate social community, a shared social place, shared community, and some people again like to say, well, this is just an allegory, it's not a literal city, except they keep saying, it's a city, it's a city, it's a city, it's a city. So if it tells me enough times, I am going to go, you know what? I just think it's a city. The physical dimensions are even given just in case, you think it's an allegory, you have to now allegorize all the physical exact dimensions that are measured.

Revelation 22:6
"And he said to me, "These words are faithful and true." The Lord God of the holy prophets sent His angel to show His servants the things which must shortly take place."

Remember, we discovered in first chapter, these things are going to shortly take place in ntachi is the Greek. We get the word tachometer, it's something that measures velocity. Once these things start to happen, they are going to happen rapid fire, and be done with very quickly, that's the idea, might shortly take place.

Revelation 22:7
"Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed or happy is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book."

That's Verse 7.

Revelation 22:20-21
"He who testifies to these things says, "Surely I am coming quickly." Even so, come, Lord Jesus!" "The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen!"

Now, the Bible begins where we see a curse. Now we have grace, the very last verse. The last chapter of the Bible, God's final message brings us full circle. You see the Bible is sort of like a novel, you open it up, everything is wonderful and good and magnificent, it's the Garden of Eden, it's filled with goodness and then there is a twist in the plot, evil is introduced into the world. But immediately a deliverer is promised, but the evil gets worse and worse and worse, and as it does, more promises, more promises, more promises of a deliverer, then Jesus Christ finally comes. He is born, He grows up, He lives, He dies, He resurrects, and He leaves again with a promise to Return.

In the meantime, we are left wondering and waiting and hoping and wondering what's it going to all turn out to be like. And so we read the Book of Revelation, and we find out how it's going to turn out, that which is ruined is restored. Consider this as we close, the Bible opens in a garden, the Bible closes with a garden environment in a city, spoken about in Revelation 22. The Bible opens with a heaven and earth created, the Bible closes with a new heaven and new earth created. The Bible opens in Chapter 1 of Genesis with God making the sun in Revelation 21 and 22, there is no need of the sun. God illuminates all with His glory.

In the Book of Genesis, the night is distinguished from the day, in Revelation 22, I think Verse 5, there is no night. Everything is always illuminated. In Genesis 3 a curse is promised on creation. Revelation 21 and 22, the curse is removed. In Genesis, there is the fall of man, introduction of death, sorrow, tears, pain and all of that is removed in Revelation. In Genesis, man is barred from paradise and unable to eat of the tree of life. In Genesis 22, the tree of life is in the City of God and man will eat freely from it, which brings vitalization to the nations.

I hope that the Bible, and especially this last book has awakened you and I afresh to the reality between this world and the next world.

Have you ever heard this, get real man, live in the real world man, this is the real world? Have you ever heard those kind of things? It's true, this is the real world, real things happen, real hurts happen, and people say, this is the real word, it is. But there is another world, let's call it the really real world. This is the real world, but what's coming is the really real world. It's eternal, and there is only two kinds of people, not three not a million, only two kinds of people, saved and unsaved, born again and not born again. People who will inhabit the really real world of heaven, and the new heaven and the new earth, and those who will not be.

And the Bible repeatedly draws that distinction, and that's why it begins and closes this book saying, "Blessed is the one who keeps this book." How do you keep the Book of Revelation? I am going to go home and practice the Book of Revelation tonight. How do you do that? Simply by making a choice for living for the eternal, really real world, not just the real world, not just the fleshly world.

The fifteenth flight over the Bible from 30,000 Feet will take us on journey through 1 Samuel chapters 1-15. Join our tour guide, Pastor Skip Heitzig for this exciting tour on which we'll meet a man who would be become King. This man's good looks, physical size and success in war made him an obvious choice from a human perspective, but the book of 1 Samuel highlights his tragic flaw - he disobeyed God's commands. From the ashes of Saul's tragedy God raises up another man who would become King, a man after His own heart, King David. The key chapters to review are 1-3, 8-10 and 15.
