Consider Jim McGuiggan’s review of the chapter thus far. John is being told the Church is about to undergo hard times, but at the same time he is being assured everything is all right with them. In this chapter, he is told this in two different ways. A vision of a city trodden under the heel of the enemy while the inner sanctuary is… invulnerable.  The second vision is one of …

A LOOK BACK: Chapter 10 continues the second woe with a prophecy made by an angel that John is not allowed to write down.  The angel declares that the time when the mystery of God is complete—the mystery declared by the prophets in the Old Testament. John is commanded to take the little book from the hand of the angel and eat it (his prophecy).  It is sweet to taste, but bitter in his belly. Measurements John is called upon to measure with a reed the Temple (or inner sanctuary) of God, the altar, and those who worship in the Temple (God’s priests = Christians).  He is not to measure the courtyard …

Trumpets & Woes: Summary of Revelation 9

In Articles by Aaron Cozort

Judgments and woes begin as the trumpets continue. A LOOK BACK: In chapter 8, John sees the seventh seal of the book opened and from it comes seven angels with given seven trumpets. Their trumpets sound proclamations of judgment upon those who will endure “the wrath of the Lamb.” Four Trumpets sound, three more are still to come. The Fifth Trumpet (WOE 1): The angel sounds the trumpet, star falls from heaven to earth. The locusts look like horses prepared for battle (armored) with crowns of gold on their head and the face of humans.  They had hair like women and teeth like lions.  When they beat their wings, the sound was like chariots with many running horses in battle. They had the tails of scorpions whose sting hurt humans for five months. The Sixth Trumpet (WOE 2): The sixth angel sounds and a voice comes from the middle of the altar which is before God, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates The four angels’ army is made up of 200,000,000 horsemen. After this judgment upon humanity, did the unrighteous repent?  No.  Did they cease worshiping demons and idols?  No.  Did they repent of their murderers, sorceries, sexual sins, or thefts?  No. The result is another woe to come. Next week: A Delicious Book that Caused a Stomach Ache.

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 …
