The Apocalypse - Part 9

The Apocalypse - Part 9

The lesson on February 7, 2016 was part 9 of "The Apocalypse" study.  The theme of this lesson was "parallels" and we learned of the parallel events that occur in Revelation with that prophesied in Zechariah and in Matthew. Chapter 6 of Revelation covers the first six Seals which involves judgments and martyrs. We cover the prophecy in Zechariah involving the nations used to punish Israel but going too far and receiving punishment for it. In the end, we looked at the structural correspondence of Revelation from chapter 6 thru chapter 19.  The scripture reading was in Zechariah 1:7-11 KJV

"7 Upon the four and twentieth day of the eleventh month, which is the month Sebat, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the Lord unto Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying, 8 I saw by night, and behold a man riding upon a red horse, and he stood among the myrtle trees that were in the bottom; and behind him were there red horses, speckled, and white. 9 Then said I, O my lord, what are these? And the angel that talked with me said unto me, I will shew thee what these be. 10 And the man that stood among the myrtle trees answered and said, These are they whom the Lord hath sent to walk to and fro through the earth. 11 And they answered the angel of the Lord that stood among the myrtle trees, and said, We have walked to and fro through the earth, and, behold, all the earth sitteth still, and is at rest."
