More about apocalypse

Discover the origins of the antichrist in first century Rome in this discussion on the mark of the Beast as described in Revelation 13:11-17. Who is the beast out of the earth? What is the mark of the beast and how does it function? What is the image of the beast?

What is the "time of the Gentiles" and how long does it last. This teaching on Revelation 11:1-2 provides the background for the command to "rise and measure the temple" and insights into the trampling of the holy city.

Then I was given a measuring rod like a staff, and I was told, "Rise and measure the temple of God and the altar and those who worship there, but do not measure the court outside the temple; leave that out, for it is given over to the nations, and they will trample the holy city for forty-two months. (Revelation 11:1-2)

John sees an angel straddling land and sea with the small scroll open in his hand. He hears the voices of seven thunders speak to him from heaven. He eats a scroll that tastes like honey but turns his stomach sour. In this teaching, we unravel these riddles and more as we prepare for the seventh angel to sound the seventh trumpet.

A fifth trumpet sounds. A star falls to earth. The star is given a key to unlock the abyss. (Not a good idea.) A sixth trumpet releases the four angels bound at the Euphrates. In this teaching from Revelation 9, we learn about who is in the abyss and we meet the hosts of Abaddon.

Naked is Sheol before Him, and Abaddon has no covering. (Job 26:6)

Sheol and Abaddon lie open before the LORD, how much more the hearts of men! (Proverbs 15:11)

When the seventh seal on the scroll is broken, heaven falls silent for half an hour. The prayers of the martyrs rise before God like incense. Seven angels take up seven trumpets, and with each blast of the trumpet, a new calamity falls upon the inhabitants of the earth. This teaching from the book of Revelation takes us through the first four trumpet blasts--a prelude to the three woes.

 

Are you ready for the coming tribulation? It's already here, and it has been underway for the last two thousand years. The four horsemen of the apocalypse have already ridden out; five of the seven seals on the scroll with seven seals have already been opened, and we are just about to see the opening of the sixth seal. Take a quick look at the first seven chapters of Revelation with this  season one recap of the Apocalypse of John.

Who are the 144,000 "servants of the Lord" in the book of Revelation, and what is their role? In the exciting season finale of the Apocalypse of John, we follow the story up to the brink of the opening of the seventh seal. This teaching focuses on a discusion of the 12,000 sealed from each of the twelve tribes of Israel.

And I heard the number of the sealed, 144,000, sealed from every tribe of the sons of Israel. (Revelation 7:4)

The fifth seal opens and John sees the souls of those martyred "under the altar." The sixth seal is opened and "the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood" (Revelation 6:12). With the sixth seal, the tribulation on the nations begins, but not before an angel marks 144,000 from Israel. Discover the meaning behind the mark with which the angel seals the 144,000.

Have the four horsemen of the apocalypse already begun to ride through the earth? Who are the mysterious riders? Discover the identity of the rider on the white horse, and learn to listen for the approaching hoofbeats--the footsteps of Messiah.

The plagues on Egypt foreshadow a future coming time of tribulation when God will judge the whole earth, as he once judged Egypt. This time, judgment comes on all the nations, as God redeems his people from the nations. Just as the redemption from Egypt began with plagues, judgments, signs and wonders on the earth, likewise, the final redemption will be prefaced by the same types of omens, calamities, and judgments, which Christians refer to as “the tribulation” and Jews refer to as the “Birth Pains of Messiah,” leading up to the conflict of Armageddon, the great war of Gog and Magog.
