Revelation, Christain’s unchartered territory. I’ve rarely heard anything about Revelation in my church groups. Why? Well I think it’s the one thing that scares. The cross, creation stories, the story of Moses all happened in the past. Now don’t get me wrong those are amazing events thanks to God, but Revelation is the thing that hasn’t happened yet. And no one knows when it will happen. I think that’s what makes us scared.
Another reason is Revelation is horrible. Absolutely horrible! There will be a worldwide earthquake, a third of the sun and moon will be darkened. A meteor will come down and poison the waters and kill a third of all marine life. There will locusts that rage for 5 months. The bible says that people will want to kill themselves because of the pain, but won’t be able to. But the kingdom of God will finally be back…

Efthimios Lekkas, Professor of Geology at the University of Athens, and a leading expert in earthquakes and natural disasters. He and his team Nepal quake 700 times the power of Hiroshima bomb, says expert
May 2015 – NEPAL – More than 7,500 people have died as a result of the magnitude-7.8 earthquake that struck Nepal on April 25, the country’s government said Tuesday. The death toll could rise still higher, as thousands of people remained missing and remote villages affected by the quake were still being reached. More than 14,500 people have been injured in the disaster, which caused buildings to collapse, trapping people in the rubble. At least 8 million people have been affected by the earthquake, and more than 2 million have been displaced, the United Nations said, as Voice of America reported.

After I told an old friend that gay marriage is communism in disguise, he replied that communism is passé. He considers radical Islam – ISIS – the real threat now. But he’s wrong.
I don’t know my friend’s politics, but his reaction is no different from that of the church in America today. For fifty years, she has watched the nation’s steep moral decline and said nothing. Atheism, abortion, homosexuality, gay marriage, pornography, and transgenderism are both legally and socially acceptable now. Thanks to communism and corrupt judges, Judeo-Christian morality has been turned on its head. Still, the church has said nothing. But after ISIS sprang up in the Middle East last year and threatened to squash the “civilized” West, only then did pastors sit up and take notice. Only then did they begin to preach rapture and “great tribulation” in their pulpits.
When people consider religious extremism a greater…

The imagery of the Great White throne comes specifically from Revelation 20. However, we also find this same throne of judgment, alternately described, in the parable we find in Matthew 25; this is the parable of the sheep and the goats.
And I saw thrones, and they sat on them. And judgment was given to them, and the souls of the ones having been beheaded because of the witness of Jesus, and because of the Word of God, and who had not worshiped the beast nor its image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand. And they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. (Revelation 20:4 LITV)
Sitting upon thrones judging, these are those that were martyred during the seven years of wrath upon the earth. Yes, they were killed, but they are resurrected at the beginning of the millennial reign – the…
