Apocalypse Now!

As we have seen, the Book of Revelation is been about the triumph of God over the forces of evil. Every foe has been vanquished. Every opposition to the purposes of God has been rendered obsolete. Jesus is Lord!

This chapter continues that theme with a vision of the New Jerusalem given by "he who was seated on the throne" (21:5). The one who speaks identifies...

Apocalypse Now!

And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.

Apocalypse Now!

After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. With a mighty voice he shouted:

Apocalypse Now!

One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, "Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits on many waters. With her the kings of the earth committed adultery and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries."

Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit...

Living in Christ Romans 6:8-14

Apocalypse Now!

After this I looked and in heaven the temple, that is, the tabernacle of the Testimony, was opened. Out of the temple came the seven angels with the seven plagues. They were dressed in clean, shining linen and wore golden sashes around their chests. Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls filled with the wrath of God,...

Apocalypse Now!

Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads. And I heard a sound from heaven like the roar of rushing waters and like a loud peal of thunder. The sound I heard was like that of harpists playing their harps. And they sang a new...
