Revelation Ch 1A
Be sure to listen to Lesson 1 from the Daniel series first. It gives an overview of prophecy. In fact, it's best to do the Daniel lessons first, before you tackle Revelation.
What is sealed in Daniel is opened in Revelation
500 years after Daniel is told to seal his visions for the end time, John is given the unsealing -- the disclosure -- the revelation. Taken together, these two books give a powerful picture of the end of the world. John is the scribe, but the author of Revelation is the Father, the Seven Spirits from before His throne and Jesus Christ.
We know the Father. We know Jesus. But who are the Seven Spirits?
Revelation Ch 1B
We see Jesus in his imperishable body as Witness and Ruler
Will our imperishable bodies look like this, too? Are we to be judged for our sins? Do the Gentiles share in the kingly heritage of the Jews? Will all the Jews be saved in the end?
Revelation Ch 2A
Christ writes letters to the angels of the churches
The first church is the one where Timothy is pastor. This powerfully gifted church was founded in a groundswell of miraclous healings and dramatic conversions. But something has gone terribly wrong.
The second church is already undergoing persecution. So why is Christ allowing Satan to hurt them even more? Why do bad things happen to good people?
Revelation Ch 2B
There's a lot of suffering in Revelation
How do we know when it is God punishing or disciplining us and when it is an attack by Satan? Why doesn't God just fix it now? Why do we have to put up with Satan? We conclude our study of Smyrna.
Revelation Ch 2C
Christ's letter to businessmen
The businessmen are defined by their works, and their works will determine the extent of their reward in heaven. But their works will be burned in fire! Why?
Are these businessmen going to heaven or not? And what does Jezebel have to do with all this?
Revelation Ch 3A
Their church was inside a pagan temple, and their works were filthy rags in Christ's eyes
Are we any better? How can we be sure? Will the Day of the Lord be a day of terror or a day of rejoicing? Can our name be blotted out of the Book of Life?
Revelation Ch 3C
Does Jesus do a "fly-by"?
We begin a search of Scripture to find out whether the Church is Raptured before or after the Great Tribulation. We skip ahead to the end of Revelation - and we look at some Old Testament prophecy from the perspective of the Jews.
Revelation Ch 3D
The body count is so high it takes 7 months to bury the dead!
The Day of the Lord is prophesied throughout Scripture as a Day of Wrath, a Day of Vengeance and a Year of Recompense. Find out how the Battle of Armageddon and the Second Coming of Christ relate to the Day like no other Day...A Day when the sun, moon and stars fall dark, the heavens are shaken, and the sword of the Lord is satiated.
Revelation Ch 3E
Who's getting married - and what does it have to do with theRapture? Do Jews and Gentiles share an inheritance? Who is the Bride of Christ? Is it the Church or the New Jerusalem?
When does the Groom come to fetch the Bride? When does the wedding ceremony occur? What about the wedding feast?
Find out answers to all these questions in this final installment of our study of the Rapture in Revelation Chapter 3.
Revelation Ch 3F
Are the seven churches really seven ages?
Are the seven letters applicable to all Christian churches of all ages? Or are there special promises and condemnations for particular times in history? Are we in the Age of Apostasy?
And who are the 24 elders on the 24 thrones?
Revelation Ch 4 & 5
Almighty God holds His sealed will in His hand...
Who can be found worthy to be His heir? Lightning and thunder rumble, the light of the Holy Spirit is reflected in a crystal sea,
Four living creatures - the awesome cherubim - surround the throne of God. Each creature has six wings and is full of eyes. It is a great and terrible scene...and at the center is standing a Lamb that has been slain yet lives again.
Revelation Ch 6, 8, & 9A
The scroll in the hand of God is opened...And the four horsemen of the Apocalypse are released.
21 judgments in all - each more terrible than the one before. Never before and never again will such destruction occur on earth or in heaven.
Revelation 9B, 10, 11B, 12, & 13A
The Great Story of the Struggle between Good and Evil
A pregnant woman goes into labor while a dragon waits impatiently to devour her child. The dragon fails, the child and his mother are rescued. But the dragon takes revenge...
Revelation - Early Tribulation
The countdown begins...
The AntiChrist conquers Egypt and turns his sights on Israel, but he is thwarted by two street preachers. These are no ordinary preachers! They kill their enemies by spewing fire from their mouths, they cause drought and plagues, and they turn water to blood. Who are these guys?
Revelation - The Great Tribulation, Part A
The AntiChrist dominates the World
The AntiChrist is killed and is resurrected. He is finally able to conquer Jerusalem and his first order of business is to kill the two witnesses. The world is awestruck by his power - and the power of his prophet who is able to call down fire from heaven, and can even bring a statue of the AntiChrist to life.
Everyone worships the AntiChrist and his living statue. Everyone gets his name or number 666 on their hands or foreheads. Everyone, that is, except the few faithful who now face torture and death at the hands of a cruel tyrant.
Revelation - The Great Tribulation, Part B
The City of Babylon is capital of the world...The center of all commerce and trade - and the AntiChrist can't wait to get his hands on all that money! He and the ten kings take over the world economy. Babylon becomes their own capital. Saints are martyred. Babylon is drunk with their blood. But God is still in control.
The time has come for the seven last plagues.
Revelation - The Battle of Armageddon
The kings of the world are duped by the AntiChrist
Using miracles, the AntiChrist convinces the kings of the earth to join with him in battle against the Jews, Jerusalem, Israel and their God. But even the AntiChrist is helpless when God destroys his capital city, Babylon.
The AntiChrist vents his anger on Jerusalem...and it looks like he'll win until...JESUS CHRIST, MESSIAH, KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS comes with all the saints and hosts of heaven.
THE BATTLE IS OVER AND CHRIST HAS WON IT
Revelation - The Millennial Kingdom
Satan is imprisoned for 1,000 years - Christ and the saints rule the world.
The Jews are greatly blessed with riches and long life. But all is not well...Satan is released and hooks up with his former allies. Greed is the motivation for the final, cataclysmic battle against Israel.
Revelation - The New Eternal Order
Heaven and earth are completely destroyed - Everyone is resurrected to join those who already live in imperishable bodies.
Everyone stands before God at the Great White Throne judgment. Those who were wicked join Satan and the AntiChrist eternally in the Lake of Fire. But those who were righteous form the New Jerusalem, the Bride of Christ. After a great feast, they enjoy a brand new heaven and earth where they can eat, drink, travel, work, play, worship God and fellowship deeply with each other. The last lesson in the series.
