Chronology of the Book Of RevelationWritten by Dene McGriff
Continued from page 1
Chapter 13 This chapter parallels 5th trumpet (Rev. 9:1-12) describing midpoint of tribulation, abomination of desolations as beast and his minions from underworld invade earth and impose mark of beast. We see beast coming up out of sea. “It was granted to him to make war with saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue and nation.” Let’s be very clear here. This is not wrath of God, but wrath of Satan directed against church (as in Chapter 11)!
Chapter 14 The second group of 144,000 represents church - “redeemed from among men.” (verse5) Here is another picture of rapture as earth is harvested just prior to God pouring out His wrath in second half of chapter.
Chapter 15 The angels prepare final bowls full of wrath.
Chapter 16 The seventh trumpet introduces bowls of wrath. The seventh bowl is judgment of Babylon “Now great city was divided into three parts and cities of nations fell.” (Verse 19). Babylon clearly refers to all nations of earth who are now under dominance of antichrist. The seventh bowl of wrath is destruction of three part empire which is covered in next three chapters.
Chapters 17 Religious Babylon is seen riding political beast which turns on her and destroys her.
Chapter 18 This covers judgment and destruction of commercial Babylon.
Chapter 19 This is final judgment of civil/political Babylon and battle of Armageddon.
Chapter 20 This covers Millennial reign of Christ, final battle and then final judgment of all mankind, devil and his fallen angels.
Chapter 21 After judgment, we see new heaven and new earth and New Jerusalem.
Now, let’s go back to seals and bring chronology forward in some detail.

Terror; The Lost War.Written by Rev.Anthony Smith
Continued from page 1
Lets read a little scripture. 1Peter 3:12- 14: For eyes of Lord are over righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but face of Lord is against them that do evil. And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; 1Peter 3:12- 14 is mistaken by some who believe that God, in these verses ,is promising Christians a peaceful life. That couldn't be farther from truth. The key phrase is this; “But and if ye suffer for righteousness'” Many Christians will be immune from violence and terror and then again many will be victims of it. We hear of wars but very seldom does news tell of murders and terrors of Christians, that are taking place each and every day. We Don't hear of Christian, women being raped, Christian children being kidnaped and brane washed, nor about Christian preachers being beaten savagely, because of their beliefe in Jesus Christ. This is a war on terror that is being ignored by man. This is a war on terror that is destroying this earth. This is a war on terror that is being lost. Zep 1:14-18 tells it way it is; “The great day of LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even voice of day of LORD: mighty man shall cry there bitterly. That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, A day of trumpet and alarm against fenced cities, and against high towers. And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as dung. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in day of LORD'S wrath; but whole land shall be devoured by fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in land.” The Day of Wrath is comming upon this earth and nothing is going to stop it. I wonder sometimes, what it will take for people to understand God loves them, just way they are. He is willing to protect them from that awful day but will not wait long. The days of gentiles is just about over. 911 was another sign. Iraq, Iran, Pakistan and terrorist that came with them are all signs that this earth is ready for a change. Gods word will cover Globe but Christianity will not win world to Christ. Thats not Biblical. Luke 21:9 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but end is not by and by.
