Revelations A Study, Conclusion. Written by Rev.Anthony Smith
Revelations A Study, Conclusion. Section 17 is conclusion of our study of Revelations. We have learned many things about end of time, vast number to be killed, false religion, doctrine and The Anti-christ. I thank you for spending time with me. The next series will be on Daniel and we will continue indepth study of Revelations as it relates to prophecys of Daniel. If there is any special study or questions that you may need answered, feel free to submit your request and I will send them to you. I am always in your service in name of Christ. Section 17.Chapter 21:1 thru 22:21, The new heaven and a new earth. Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for first heaven and first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. The oceans will no longer exist. Isa_65:17-19, Isa_66:22; 2Pe_3:13 Psa_48:1-3, Psa_87:3; Isa_1:21, Isa_52:1; Jer_31:23 Isa 54:5 For thy Maker is thine husband; LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer Holy One of Israel; The God of whole earth shall he be called. All false religions will be gone never to be heard of again. There will no longer be any debate on meaning of scripture, for all will be revieled. The doctrines that have seperated many christians will be no longer. We will all be members of one true church. Its name is The Church of First Born. Verses 1 thru 7 are promises from God to all that have believed upon His Son. Rev 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. Rev 21:8 reviels type of people that will never enter into Heaven. ”But fearful, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is second death.” The existance of Hell is rejected by many but if we are to believe in Heaven we must also believe in Hell. For both were created by God. All these verses are literial. Rev.21:9 thru 27 gives description of City of God, that were are to inhabit. Rev 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in Lamb's book of life.Isa 35:8 And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
Revelations a Study. Section 16. Written by Rev.Anthony Smith
Revelations a Study. Section 16. The Number of man killed in three battles for earth is stagering. We have never seen such destruction and bloodshed in this life. The Reason that we continue to preach and teach scriptures is because of pain and torment that will befall many. Some try to say that Christianity will convert world. This is a miss leading statment and also false. The apostile Paul stated that, 1Co 9:22 “To weak became I as weak, that I might gain weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.” That I might by all means save some. And this is our purpose here, to try to win as many as we can before its too late. 1Co 9:23 And this I do for gospel's sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you. Chapter 20:1 thru 20:15, The binding of Satan, The first resurrection, Judgment, Satan, beast, and false prophet cast into Lake of Fire. This section speaks of thousand year reign of Christ upon earth. This verse is literial. Rev 20:1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having key of bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. This verse is literial. Rev 20:2 And he laid hold on dragon, that old serpent, which is Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, This verse is literial. Rev 20:3 And cast him into bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive nations no more, till thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.= Satan being bound by Christ will have no power untill he is realeased after thousand years and at that time will be allowed to run wild untill He is finally defeated by Christ. This verse is literial. Rev 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw souls of them that were beheaded for witness of Jesus, and for word of God, and which had not worshipped beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. Rev 20:5 But rest of dead lived not again until thousand years were finished. This is first resurrection. Many believe that there will only be one but scripture speaks otherwise. Rev 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in first resurrection: on such second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. The second death is final judgment of lost where they are resurected to judgment, tried, convicted andsentanced to lake of fire. This verse is literial. Rev 20:7 And when thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, This verse is literial. This is final battle of Gog and Magog, there was two. Rev 20:8 And shall go out to deceive nations which are in four quarters of earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: number of whom is as sand of sea. All nations on earth will compass about Jeruselam and there by be destroyed. This is contrary to what many are teaching about Jerusalem. The Battles will be fought there.
