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.

Lessons

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

The Apocalypse - Part 42

The lesson on November 13, 2016 was part 42 of "The Revelation" study.  Wayne gives a quick review of the Presidential Election in America and how God my be giving the United States an opportunity to come back to Him.  In doing so, we learned how the losers of this election were practicing Satanic rituals that played right into the Babylonian doctrine showing how those will be duped by this religion when the they perform miracles and demonstrate power.  As the lesson started, we again are learning how we don't have an immortal soul.  When we die, the life that was given with the soul has perished.  If it were not for the resurrection, there would be no life.  For those who have accepted Christ as their savior, will have eternal life.  Those who don't will perish after receiving their respective punishment.  The scripture reading was from Exodus 19:3-6 KJV

The Apocalypse - Part 43

The lesson on November 20, 2016 was part 43 of "The Apocalypse" study.  This lesson continued to review what we have learned in chapter 20 of Revelation, particularly in relation to the first and second resurrection in relation to the Great White Throne Judgement and who it pertains to.  We also look at the great house spoken of in 2 Timothy 2:20 to learn how life is received as a free gift to those who accept Christ and rewards are given to those who do good works.  The consistency of Revelation in how it applies to the nation of Israel is pointed out from old testament scripture that was given in Exodus 19:4-6 KJV.  The scripture reading was from Revelation 20:11-15 KJV

The Apocalypse - Part 44

The lesson on November 27, 2016 was part 44 of "The Apocalypse" study.  This lesson looks at Revelation chapters 21 and 22 to learn about New Jerusalem that comes down from heaven to set up God's tabernacle hear on Earth.  It is amazing to read of the New Earth and how God transform the Earth to be without the sea.  This New Jerusalem and New Earth is specifically in relation to His people.  We take time to look at what God means by His people and ask are we included in that phrase?  We look at Paul's statement in Galatians 4:25-26 when he says "Jerusalem, which is above is free, and the mother of us all."  Wayne reminds us that this fits with Paul's first ministry before Acts 28 when he was ministering to Israel.  After Acts 28, Paul reveals his second ministry where we learn of our unique calling that was hidden from the Old Testament prophets and was hidden in God, before the foundation of the world.  Since we are a part of this calling, New Jerusalem is not the mother of us today.  The scripture reading was from Revelation 21:1-8 KJV

The Apocalypse - Part 45

The lesson on December 4, 2016 was part 45 of "The Apocalypse" study.  This is the last lesson in this study.  Wayne reviews what was covered in the previous lesson, where we learned how mans soul perishes with his body upon death.  Scripture tells us that man is like the animals in how they die and return to dust.  This is true without the hope of the Jesus Christ and the resurrection.  We have learned about the first and second resurrection of the tribulation and how these are particular to Israel.  We learn in this lesson of the unique calling we have in this age specifies where we will be after our recurrection, which is different than that of Israel, which is know as His people.  They have a special relationship with New Jerusalem which is the mother of them all (as Paul declared in his first ministry).  The scripture reading was from Revelation 22:16-21 KJV
