A Great and Marvelous Sign Revelation 15:1-8 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. [Rev 14:15] the wrath of God is complete is described as a great and marvelous sign. This brings us to the end of a long parenthetical [Rev 10-14]. Revelation contains several parentheticals within the chronology of judgments leading to Christs Ret...

The Harvest of Judgment Revelation 14:14-20 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 is ripe. [Rev 14:15] Our passage this morning describes the time of grace coming to an end. Mercy, after a long period of time [from Genesis 3:15 to Revelation 19] will finally come to an end. MacArthur writ...

The Everlasting Gospel Revelation 14:6-13 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. [Rev 14:6] When we think of the gospel [literally good news] we think of the gospel of salvation or the gospel of grace. But in our passage this morning, the everlasting gospel is a gospel of judgment. The context of th...

A Faithful and Blameless Remnant Revelation 14:1-5 And in their mouth was found no deceit, for they are without fault before the throne of God. [Rev 14:5] These are the 144,000 in Rev 7, 12,000 from every tribe of Israel, who are sold out for the Lord in the Tribulation. They are men; spiritually, morally, and physically pure, and God uses them in a way that is unique in all history. Never before has there been such a large group o...

The Beast from the Earth Revelation 13:11-18 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. 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. [Rev 13:11-12] Here in this latter half of Rev 13 is the description of a second beast, the beast comi...

The Beast from the Sea Revelation 13:1-10 And the dragon stood on the sand of the seashore. Then I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten diadems, and on his heads were blasphemous names. [Rev 13:1 - NASB] A daunting image indeed! This intimidating beast is none other than the antichrist [and his kingdom]. In the Gospels we read of the true King [Jesus Christ] and His Kingd...

A War on Israel Revelation 12:13-17 Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. [Rev 12:13] Noted in our Revelation text from two weeks ago [Rev 12:1-6], the woman referred to in Rev 12 is Israel. John describes her as a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. [Rev 12:1] The vision is so similar to ...

Revelation 12:7-12 A War in Heaven And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. [Rev 12:7-8] We usually think of heaven as a place of perfect peace and security. It is, in one sense. After all, it is the place where God dwells. But according to the Bible, heaven is also a place where Sa...

The Woman, Child, and Dragon Revelation 12:1-6 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. [Rev 12:4] The Woman, the Child, and the Dragon, it almost sounds like a C.S. Lewis novel. These are, however, three important personages of the Tribulation. Revelation 12-14 is another parenthetical, ...

The Seventh Trumpet Revelation 11:15-19 The second woe is past. Behold, the third woe is coming quickly. Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven saying, The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever! [Rev 11:14-15] If this were a first reading of Revelation, one would think that the Return of Christ is at hand, just around the corn...

The Temple and Two Witnesses Revelation 11:1-14 But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles. And they will tread the holy city under foot for forty-two months. And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth. [Rev 10:2-3] Revelation 11 continues a second parenthetical that began in Re...

A Mighty Angel and Little Book Revelation 10:1-11 I saw still another mighty angel coming down from heaven clothed with a cloud. And a rainbow was on his head, his face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire. [Rev 9:12] Revelation 10 introduces yet another angel, and one with a description like our Lords [ref. Rev 1:14-15]. However, the text clearly says, another mighty angel. Here are some key observations to note. Fi...

The Sixth Trumpet and Second Woe Revelation 9:13-21 One woe is past. Behold, still two more woes are coming after these things.[Rev 9:12] The 1st Woe [the 5th Trumpet judgment] has been the fiercest yet. A demonic multitude is released from the abyss to torment mankind for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man. [v.9:5b] In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will...

The Fifth Trumpet and First Woe Revelation 9:1-12 Then the fifth angel sounded: And I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit. [Rev 9:1] There are some interesting things to observe in this verse. The star mentioned here seems to refer to a person rather than a literal star or meteor. His fallenness is a clue to this beings identity. In Luke 10:18, Jesus said He saw Satan fall li...

Silence and the Seventh Seal Revelation 8:1-13 When He opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and to them were given seven trumpets. [Rev 8:1-2] This describes the breaking of the seventh and final seal. Seven seals hold closed a scroll written inside and on the back. [Rev 5:1]. I believe this scroll is the title deed to the earth. Upon it is ope...

The Saints of the Tribulation Revelation 7:9-17 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, [Rev 7:9] After these things connects us to the first group in Rev 7; one hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of I...

The Sealed of IsraelRevelation 7:1-8 And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and fortyfour thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed [Rev 7:4] The Lord is not finished with Israel. Revelation 7:1-8, along with several other Scriptures [Rev 14:1-5 and Rom 11 for starters] clearly describe Israel coming to know Jesus as Messiah. This will take place during the seven year Tribulation. Antich...

The Book of Revelation | Episode 13 The Real and the CounterfeitRevelation 6:1-8 Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer. [Rev 6:1-2] The Real and the Counterfeit are revealed in these verse...

The Lamb and the Seven Sealed Scroll Revelation 5:1-14 But one of the elders said to me, Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals. [Rev 5:5] The scene is heaven. All eyes are upon the Throne; all attention is upon the One who sits on the Throne. And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow ...
