The Apocalypse

The Apocalypse Study

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 Apocalypse - Part 36

The lesson on October 2, 2016 was part 36 of "The Apocalypse" study.  This lesson continued into chapter 17 of Revelation and takes time to study Babylon.  Traditionally, the Babylon of Revelation 17 has been taught that it is symbolizing Rome and the Catholic church, where the Pope is revealed at the Anti-Christ that fulfills the phophetic content of Babylon.  This lesson rejects that tradition and looks at Babylon as an actual city located in the Middle East. The scripture reading was from Isaiah 13:19-22 KJV

The Apocalypse - Part 37

The lesson on October 9, 2016 was part 37 of "The Apocalypse" study.  This lesson looked at the three theories that identifies the Babylon spoken of in Revelation 17.  First, some think that Babylon is really the Roman line of the Catholic church, stemming from Nimrod (set forth in the book "The Two Babylons: Or, the Papal Worship Proved to Be the Worship of Nimrod" by Alexander Hislop).  Second, Pastor McLain set forth that Babylon is really Jerusalem (which he taught in his Mystery Babylon study in January of 1987).  The third theory is set forth by Wayne in that the Babylon of Revelation 17 is in fact the city of Babylon rebuilt that will receive destruction within one hour.  He sets forth that the problem with it being Jerusalem is the promises to Israel requires the perpetuity of Jerusalem which means in cannot receive the judgement described for Babylon.  The scripture reading was from Psalms 2:6-9 KJV

The Apocalypse - Part 38

The lesson on October 16, 2016 was part 38 of "The Apocalypse" study.  Babylon was studied to conclusion in that Babylon of Revelation 17, 18 and Jeremiah 50, 51 is the actual city vs. Jerusalem.  The scriptures that point to this conclusion are shared and studied so the conclusion is made, no matter how hard it is to believe.  Presently, Babylon is in ruins and only partially rebuilt and is no way an economic epicenter.  It would be much easier to believe that Jerusalem fills this prophecy but the scriptures studied in this lesson show that Jerusalem must exist for the prophecy related to Israel to be fulfilled.  Babylon is destroyed in an hour and will not exist after judgement comes upon it.  The scripture reading was from Zechariah 14:-16-21 KJV

The Apocalypse - Part 39

The lesson on October 23, 2016 was part 39 of "The Apocalypse" study.  This study begins chapter 19 of Revelation and Wayne takes time to look at the phrase "King of Kings" and where it occurs in scripture.  It appears three times in the Old Testament and three times in the New Testament.  When you compare what we find in Ephesians, we see Christ in the dispensation of the fullness of times is the Head of all principalities and powers, and might and dominion and every name that is named, not only in this world but also which is to come.

The Apocalypse - Part 40
The lesson on October 30, 2016 was part 40 of "The Apocalypse" study.  Today's lesson completed chapter 19 of Revelation and looked at two items.  First, the fact that the return of Jesus Christ here on Earth is in the role of the kinsman redeemer that comes with vengeance and redemption for his beloved bride, the nation of Israel who have overcome the tribulation.  The over-comers get to receive their messiah and he take vengeance on the armies of Satan and his un-holy trinity.  The other was to look at the name referenced in verse 12, "His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself."  This name is looked at in relation to Philippians 2:9-11 KJV "9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.".  No doubt Jesus is expressing his vengeance with this name.  The scripture reading was from Revelation 19:17-21 KJV
