The Apocalypse - Part 21

The lesson on May 15, 2016 was part 21 of "The Apocalypse" study.  A review of the previous lesson opened up this lesson as usual, but the remaining part of the lesson really looked at the Two Witnesses in Revelation and how they are used to demonstrate God's position on the sins of the world but how He uses their death and resurrection after 3.5 days.  It is also very informative to study how in their intermediate state during their death and resurrection does not include any consciousness.  The intermediate state between death and resurrection does not exist.  We have learned that death...

The Apocalypse - Part 22

The lesson on May 22, 2016 was part 22 of "The Apocalypse" study.  An excellent overview of the context of Revelation was given in the first part of this lesson before Wayne moved on to chapter twelve and the looking into the stronghold of Satan and how he will be angry and try to destroy the preserved Israel but to no prevail.  This lesson looked at what PAul teaches us about the wickedness in high places that will be cast down to the Earth heading towards their destruction.  The scripture reading was in Revelation 12:12-17 KJV  

"12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and...

The Apocalypse - Part 23

The lesson on June 5, 2016 was part 23 of "The Apocalypse" study. A review was given of the previous lesson where we learned of signs and Satan's stronghold and the abomination of desolation and the temple.  The new material was looking at chapter 13 Revelation which is greatly related to Daniel 7.  Prior to diving into this shared content between the books, Wayne puts forth a couple of ideas that come up as issues that need to be answered.  Primarily, in Ephesians 4:8 when the Lord ascended up on high when he led captivity captive, it is actually referring to angels and heavenly beings as...

The Apocalypse - Part 24

The lesson on June 12, 2016 was part 24 of "The Apocalypse" study. This lesson gave a review of the previous lesson in asking the question "will every person receive a resurrection?" but then started to explore the overlap of Daniel 7 with Revelation 13.  With this overlap, we see that there are insights into the two beasts, the one that comes out of the sea and the other out of earth.  A brief mention of the Book of Life was made but the majority of the lesson we studied how Daniel 7 provides us clarity on what the beasts are particularly the non-descriptive beast that is in Revelation 13...

The Apocalypse - Part 25

The lesson on June 19, 2016 was part 25 of "The Apocalypse" study.  A review was given of the previous lesson where we learned Daniel 7 helps us interpret Revelation 13 in that it helped us with the vision of the great beasts being kings with their kingdoms and allowed us to study who is the second beast with this lesson. We find the second beast is the false prophet and we learn about the mark of the beast and how it is imposed on everyone in that time to buy and sell and worship the beast.  The scripture reading was from Daniel 9:25-27 KJV

"25 Know therefore and...

The Apocalypse - Part 26

The lesson on June 26, 2016 was part 26 of "The Apocalypse" study.  A brief review was given of the previous lesson but the majority of this lesson was leading up to those we will believe "The Lie".  In revelation chapter 14 we learn of the 144,000 male Jews who are the remnant who will not be defiled of the immoral religious order during the time of Revelation.  An important note was made on these 144,000 being virgins has no context on the nature of marriage causing a person to become defiled and less of a Christian.  In Romans 1:22-32 KJV, we see how it seems to place particular...

The Apocalypse - Part 27

The lesson on July 3, 2016 was part 27 of "The Apocalypse" study.  This also was mingled with thoughts on America's Independence Day celebration.  Wayne gave a brief overview of the previous lesson where we learned about Sion or Zion being the center of Israel's salvation in the Tribulation but he moved on to teach us about the different gospels in scripture.  The term "gospel" simply means good news but the mention of gospel in scripture dictates that you look at the context to see which good news is being proclaimed.  We looked at three different gospels to make it apparent that those...

The Apocalypse - Part 28

The lesson on July 10, 2016 was part 28 of "The Apocalypse" study.  A review was given from the last lesson regarding gospels in scripture and then moved into chapter 20 of Revelation and the Great White Throne judgement.  This lesson looked at the books that are used by God as well as the Book of Life and we learn how God uses them to distribute judgement. The scripture reading was from Revelation 20:11-15 KJV

"11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12 And I...

The Apocalypse - Part 29

The lesson on August 14, 2016 was part 29 of "The Apocalypse" study.  Wayne reviews what we learned in the previous lesson whereby we received an earthly body from Adam and we will recieve our spiritual body when we are resurrected and that wIll be have the attributes needed for our calling.  Next, the main emphasis of lesson was to identify the way punishment will be given at the Great White Throne judgment.  At that time, there are books and the book of life and judgement comes from the books.  We learn how God can judge someone who had not heard the gospel and be righteous in how...

The Apocalypse - Part 30

The lesson on August 21, 2016 was part 30 of "The Apocalypse" study.  When studying Revelation, having had 29 lessons on the subject so far, it is important to remind the students watching that we are part of a new calling which PAul calls The Mystery.  This new calling was hidden before the foundation of the world and was not a part of any other Old Testament or New Testament scripture until PAul reveals them in his last seven books (Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, Titus, Philemon and 1 & 2 Timothy).  In Revelation, there are all kinds of trails leading back to the Old Testmant,...
