This study looks at the book of Revelation from the perspective of Man, His Nature and Destiny which means the lessons will look at the judgments revealed in revelation as it pertains to man. Whether or not the perspective of eternal torment for the lost is accurate as opposed to just perishing with the appropriate amount of punishment. This study is best followed by the Man, His Nature and Destiny to provide the context of how by looking at Revelation we may expand our understanding of Man's destiny.
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 emphasis on homosexuality as being evidence of sin becoming vile and turning against God but we are also reminded that not only homosexuality, but the entire list from verses 29-31 KJV (29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:). This lesson also looks at the city of Sion or Zion and how God will use this as a place where he will preserve the 144,000 Jews during the tribulation. The scripture reading was from Hebrews 12:22-25 KJV
