We have spent 4 months going through the entire Book of Revelation!
From the Rapture...
To the Tribulation...
To the Thousand Year Millennium on earth...
To the Great White Throne Judgment
Where ALL is made NEW at time sin is destroyed! To make all New BEFORE this Moment would have been useless!
SO AT THIS MOMENT... IS WHERE WE WILL PICK UP AGAIN THIS WEEK!
We are in the last chapters of the entire Book of Revelation. We’ve spent months going through every detail of the Last Days on earth as we know it today—starting at the Rapture of the Church through the seven horrid years of the Tribulation, to the Second Coming of Christ to establish His throne with us, to the thousand years of perfect government on a perfect earth, but still with a mix of glorified saints and imperfect inhabitants where we will be judges, rulers and priests of God. Today we come to the end of the thousand years of peace and fellowship on this earth with our Lord as King where one more short period of chaos must occur in this world, and then the single-most terrifying event in all of human history. Just before we are ushered into a completely new beginning as we finally step into Eternity with a new Heaven and Earth.
Last week we ended our Walk Thru Revelation here...Jesus has Returned with His Army of Saints...And destroyed the gathered armies of the world at Armageddon...He has resurrected all those martyred for His Sake during the Tribulation...So that now... Any and all who have died in faith...Throughout all of earth's history to this point...Are resurrected in glorified bodies...And present with Christ on the earth together!
"Joy To The World": This song has been a Christmas favorite for years. But it was not actually written about Jesus as a Babe in the manger; it was written about His Reign in the Millennial Period which we will be studying about today. Listen to those lyrics again. This entire song speaks of a time when Jesus has Come to earth and reigns as King over the earth with Truth, Grace and Love and Creation sings because the curse is lifted from nature. Today we will explore what this Moment will be like on earth.
Our study this week will bring an end to the 7yr Tribulation. It will bring an end to time and existence on earth as we know it today. It will bring an end to the period of grace and mercy given to us as a gift by Jesus in His first coming to earth and it will usher in a New Era on this old earth. An Era that is not yet Heaven but not of the Old Cursed Earth either. An Era of Peace where the curse has been lifted and Jesus Himself reigns as the King of all nations which will last for 1000 years. Last week we began studying the 19th Chapter of Revelation—probably one of the most exciting Chapters in the Book. We saw the millions of saints in Heaven rejoicing and celebrating because it was now time for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb; and we discussed how that Marriage Feast will most likely occur on earth just after our Return with Him at this very moment of the Study in Chapter 19. So our study ended last week with all of the Saints of Heaven dressed up in their White Robes of Righteousness ready to be taken to the Marriage Supper as many earthly Saints are still on this dying planet, hiding, suffering, and waiting for His Return; and the armies of the world have joined the Antichrist and False Prophet in Megiddo to join against God's people of Israel and attempt to destroy God Himself when He Returns. Let's pick up exactly where we left off in our Journey through the last Hours on earth as we know it.
We are nearing the very end of these Last Days in the seven years of the Great Tribulation on earth...The remaining population consists of...Those who have heard God's Words...And not only reject Him...But hate Him, and hate His people so fiercely... They are amassing their armies together in a literally attempt to destroy Him when He soon Returns!
We are now walking well into the last 3 1/2 years of the Tribulation...And we need to get a picture of what the world looks like at this moment...In order to fully grasp and appreciate what we are about to study today!
In our last study we stepped away from the events of the Tribulation to take a very compelling look at evidences for how and where the Antichrist and his False Prophet may arise to power on this earth. Today we will begin exactly where we paused in our journey through these terrifying last days of the Tribulation.
In our last study we saw the 7th Trump Sounded...As Jesus Reclaimed His Kingdom on Earth! And Michael and his angels make war with Satan and his demons...Defeating them, and forever casting them from Heaven to earth! Because their right to accuse men before God has now passed! In rage and desperation...Satan pushes his Antichrist into a rise to world power...
The Seventh Trumpet has been sounded and God has proclaimed that "The kingdoms of this world (earth) have become the kingdoms of our Lord and His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!" In what seems to be God's first act in making this proclamation a reality, Michael and his army of angels wage war with Satan and his demons—casting them from Heavenly access permanently to earth because they have no more authority or purpose to be there (since their only function in Heaven was the rightful accusation of fallen man, their purpose is through and they are first driven from Heaven). Satan is now humiliated, desperate and furious at God, and his first act after being cast to earth Is to relentlessly attack the Jews (God's Chosen people) and then, because they are protected by God in the wilderness, attack their "offspring", the Church. John now turns his attention to giving some background to this antichrist that has by this point risen to world power. The symbolism used can be confusing to us if we do not study God's Word regularly on this subject. But it is a completed picture of the origin of the antichrist’s coming kingdom—how he gains such power and respect, and where he plans to take mankind in his rule. Let's jump in where we left off…
