People die. The judgment against the people of the Earth not marked with God’s mark. The Star (King / Angel) with the key to the bottomless pit falls from heaven to earth. Then the four angels under the altar of God release plagues to bring more judgment upon sinful humanity.  After all this, humanity still does not repent of their iniquity. Note: The second woe continues until Revelation 11:13. The Angel and the Book: John sees another mighty angel coming down from heaven. He holds a little book open in his hand. He speaks, and his voice is like the roar of a …

Re-Baptism: A Biblical Contrast

In General by Aaron Cozort

It is important to understand what the Bible teaches about the “who, when, and why” for a person being “rebaptized.” Paul’s encounter with the men in Acts who only knew John’s baptism teaches us important lessons concerning this question.

Silence & Trumpets – Revelation 8

In Articles by Aaron Cozort

In Heaven there is silence… something is coming. A LOOK BACK: In chapter 6, the first six seals of the book are opened by the Lamb.  In Revelation 7, there is a pause in the opening of the seals to allow the angels to “mark” those who belong to God. These will be the ones will be able to stand in the day of the wrath of the Lamb. SILENCE: The Lamb opens the seventh seal, and John watches as there is silence in heaven for half an hour.  The silence might indicate reverence or awe at what is coming.  Consider the idea of a “moment of silence” because of a catastrophe that has befallen someone. Revealed in the seventh seal, John sees seven angels, each given a trumpet.  Another angel comes to the altar with a golden censer, and he receives incense to offer up with the prayers of the saints upon the altar. The prayers plus incense are offered and ascend up before God (sitting upon His throne).  Remember the saints beneath the altar who died for Christianity and their cry, “How Long!”  God’s answer to those prayers is coming. After offering the incense, the angel fills his censor with fire from the altar casts it into the Earth.  Voices, thundering, lightning, and earthquakes occur.  Always remember, this is vision language of judgment and retribution on the enemies of God.  As this happens, John sees the angels with the trumpets preparing to sound. The first trumpet: The angel …

With each John is invited to look into the “revelation” the book presents. The sixth seal opens to reveal humanity seeking refuge from “the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb” and a question, “For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” The answer comes in chapter 7. A MARK Whenever there is a battle, there is always concern over friendly-fire. Great care is given by armies to know where all of their men’s location so they never accidentally fire upon their men. There is reassurance in knowing the color of …

John watches as the Lamb opens the first seal.  Then one of the creatures from before the throne invites him with a voice like thunder, “Come and see.”  Beginning here, John in this chapter will observe the opening of six of the seven seals on the scroll.  For the first century church, each prophecy is a glimpse into what will “shortly …

Summary of the Book of Revelation: Chapter 5

In Articles by Aaron Cozort

The Scroll Back in chapter 4, John was invited through the open door into the throne room of God.  He entered and saw the majesty of God’s presence and the reverent worship offered to The First and the Last by those around the throne. John now looks back to the throne and in the hand of the one on the throne is a scroll.  The scroll, with writing on the inside and outside, is sealed with seven seals.  Imagine here a wax seal created by the writer of the scroll, only the individual worthy of opening the seals can read the scroll. John stands disheartened and weeps because there is no one found in Heaven, on Earth, or in the grave worthy to open the scroll.  But one of the twenty-four elders spoke to John, “Do not weep. the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and loose its seven seals.” John looks and sees a Lamb standing, but it is “a Lamb as though it had been slain.”  The Lamb has seven horns (perfect might) and seven eyes (perfect knowledge).   The Lamb takes the scroll from the One on the throne.  When he does, the four creatures and twenty-four elders fall down and sing before the Lamb.  When they sing, they each have a harp and a golden bowl filled with incense–this is the prayers of the saints on Earth. The song of the Lamb identifies this Lamb as the Redeemer of all the …
