The Apocalypse - Part 41

The Apocalypse - Part 41

The lesson on November 6, 2016 was part 41 of "The Apocalypse" study.  This week, we looked at the Clarence Larkin chart entitled "The Underworld" and looked at how their are some errors due to the fact that we learned in Luke 16 that the description of the intermediate state was a belief of the Pharisees and the Lord used that description against them.  We have learned that there is life through resurrection or you perish.  That is it.  There is no intermediate state of the believer.  The later part of the lesson continued looking at the 1000 year period when Christ is ruling here on Earth and we looked at how there will be a seismic event on the Earth when the Lord returns. Satan is bound for this period and let loose at the end.  The scripture reading was from Psalms 146:1-10 KJV

"1 Praise ye the Lord. Praise the Lord, O my soul. 2 While I live will I praise the Lord: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being. 3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. 4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish. 5 Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God: 6 Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever: 7 Which executeth judgment for the oppressed: which giveth food to the hungry. The Lord looseth the prisoners: 8 The Lord openeth the eyes of the blind: the Lord raiseth them that are bowed down: the Lord loveth the righteous: 9 The Lord preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down. 10 The Lord shall reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the Lord."
