Prelude to God’s Wrath

7 angels of wrath“And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. … And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever.” – Rev. 15:1, 7

The Book of Revelation now passes into another phase. Chapters 12-14 concerned the Antichrist and Satan’s last push for defeating God. In these chapters we see heaven purged of the Devil’s presence and the wrath of the Devil and his Antichrist being poured out on mankind but, beginning in chapter 15 God begins purging the earth of Satan and his influence.  Continue reading

God’s Overview of the End

144000-4-638Revelation chapter 14 begins with the sealing of 144,000 servants of God who were virgins

“These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.” – Rev. 14:4

Who are these? And what does it mean that they were virgins? Strong’s Concordance identifies them – “a man who has abstained from all uncleanness and whoredom attendant on idolatry, and so has kept his chastity” In other words, they are sold out to God and not distracted by any lusts of the flesh. I don’t believe it means they were effeminate or unmarried. They are like Peter, who was married, but wholly committed to follow Jesus. They follow the Lamb wherever He goes. They represent the ‘firstfruits’ of the Lord’s work on earth – Continue reading

God’s Answer to the Antichrist System

final kingdomIn Revelation 12 and 13, Jesus revealed to John what the last kingdom of man would look like on the earth. We are fast approaching it – but many do not recognize it because it is so often couched in economic and political terms and many think anything of God must be religious in nature. But, it is spiritual in nature because it is all about God’s final plan for man. Jesus summed it all up in two portions of Scripture – the Lord’s Prayer and Psalm 2. Continue reading

The False Prophet

2 horned lamb

And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.” – Rev. 13:11

This False Prophet looks like the Lamb but, he only has two horns whereas John tells us the true Lamb of God has seven horns, which represent the fullness of the Holy Spirit –

“And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.” – Rev. 5:6

 This “false prophet” will be powerful, having all the power of the first beast. He will also be religious in nature and try to convince people that he is the prophet to come.

“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:” – Malachi 4:5 Continue reading

The Four Beasts of Rev. 13

Daniels beast“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.” – Rev. 13:1

Revelation 13 introduces two of Satan’s main players in the last days; 1) the Beast known as the Antichrist, and 2) the Beast known as the False Prophet. Their main goals are to gain control of the world, deceive the world, defeat the saints of God, and bring worship to the great dragon of Revelation 12, otherwise known as the Devil and Satan.

The End of the War

This will be the second half of Revelation 12 which describes the end of the war between God and Satan. While not specifically identified, the final battles that many call Armageddon are alluded to but, God emphasizes the main idea which is the gathering of His people, both Jew and Gentile, and the defeat of Satan. There are still several unanswered question which I will explore at the end of the included movie.

This movie uses the Word of God and the heavenly creation of God to explain His final plans. I hope you enjoy it. Continue reading
