The Apocalypse - Part 1

The Apocalypse - Part 1

The lesson on November 29, 2015 was part 1 of "The Apocalypse" study.  This first lesson looks at the book of Revelation because it is important to understand in the context of Man, His Nature and Destiny.  This is because most Christians will go to Revelation to get answers to the questions posed within the previous study.  In the traditional view, the saved would have life forever while the lost would have an eternity in flames.  Hell simply continues for the lost and they are forever in torment.  However, in the context about what we learned about the saved is that they only have life through resurrection.  The lost simply perishes which doesn't mean they burn forever.  It may be that some earn the punishment while they are perishing but in the end, they are gone.  The scripture reading was from Revelation 1:1-4 KJV

"1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: 2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. 3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. 4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;"
