Revelation 20:7-15 “THE LAST JUDGMENT” #1498 – 3/2/2014

“ANYONE NOT FOUND WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE WAS CAST INTO THE LADKE OF FIRE. ”(Rev.20:15) Our first priority should be to make sure our name is in the Book of Life; and the names of our loved ones. Our name is written in when we confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. And it isn’t just calling Jesus “Lord”. Many people call Him Lord, but never really know Him (Matt.7:23). It is about enjoying a relationship with Jesus, as Lord and Savior of your life.
If you have not done that, this would be a great day to do it. Humble yourself, ask Christ to forgive you of your sins, repent, and walk away from those sins. Believe that Jesus died for you and rose from the dead. Surrender your life to Jesus and you will know that your name is written in the Book of Life.

Revelation 20 “God’s Kingdom Come” #1497 – 2/23/2014

JESUS HAS A PURPOSE FOR SATAN AND THE WORLD SYSTEM. He wants to test our love for Him; and to do that, He sometimes allows Satan to test us. The story of Job is the classic example for us. Christ doesn’t want us to be robots. He wants our choice to be a real choice; and in order for it to be real, there has to be an attractive alternative. That is where Satan and the world system comes in. as the father of lies, Satan specializes in making rebellion against God look good. This gives people an opportunity to actually choose God’s ways and to Love Him, and not by constraint but from the heart. We wouldn’t have a real relationship with the Living God unless we had a choice not to, and Satan and the world system provides that option.

Revelation 19:11-21 “Christ The King” #1496 – 2/16/14

JESUS HAS SEVERAL NAMES. He has the name “The Word of God.” He also has a name that no one knows except Him. But here, in Revelation 19, He wears the name “King of Kings and Lord of Lords.” In Revelation 19 we shall also see Jesus as sovereign Lord over all. The most efficient form of government is a monarchy, but it is only as good as the monarch. It is hell if the monarch is a tyrant. Jesus is the perfect King. He will usher in the perfect Government, and He will rule in righteousness and love. And, as His Bride, we Christians will have the wonderful privilege and pleasure of helping Him in His Kingdom.

Revelation 19 “The Marriage Supper” #1495 2/9/14

REVELATION 19 IS THE CULMINATION OF EVENTS FROM REV. 4 THROUGH 18. It begins with: “after these things”. That is after the Great Tribulation when the wrath of the Lamb is poured out upon His enemies.
In the 1st verse we see a great multitude in heaven shouting “Alleluia” which is a transliteration of the Hebrew word “Hallelujah” or “Praise the Lord”! This is the first time the word is used in the New Testament. You wouldn’t expect a Hebrew word to be used in the Greek New Testament, remember however, that God has been dealing with the Hebrews (Israel) during the Great Tribulation, and so after His judgments the Jews hear a shout of “Hallelujah”! Followed by “be glad & rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His Bride has made herself ready”.

Revelation 18 “It’s All Gonna Burn” #1494 – 2/2/14

In Revelation 18 we will see God destroy Commercial Babylon. Today commercial interests control the world. They are the power brokers. They put politicians into office. And they sit on top of the world, in the lap of luxury, thinking they will never pay for all the years that they took advantage of people to pad their own nests, using the poor people of the world as pawns in their economic chess games. But Jesus, the Lamb of God, will destroy them in one day. Christians often say about material things; “It’s all gonna burn.” Well, this is the day when it all burns.
