The Fate of the World - Vials of Wrath in Revelation

Vials of Wrath Meeting

Many people don’t want to talk about the Book of Revelation. They ask, “How could a loving God pour out wrath upon people?” If you read the Old Testament, you will find out why.

All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness… (2 Timothy 3:16 AKJV)

Paul is instructing his new young leader about scripture found in the Old Testament. When we follow Paul’s advice, it is easy to see a decided trend in the stories of God’s people. Our Father would let them continue in sin for a certain period of time. Then, consequences would come - sometimes hundreds of years later. Several verses in the New Testament seem to contradict this aspect of God. Let’s look at one of those very closely:

3 woes of revelation

Final Woes of Revelation the Timing of the Rapture

6th Trumpet


And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. (Revelation 9:13-15 AKJV)

Wormwood and the First Four Trumpets

 



Wormwood and the First Four Trumpets

Blessed is he that reads, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. (Revelation 1:3 AKJV)

The Apostle John was confined to an island by the leaders of his time and wrote the Book of Revelation during his confinement. It begins with a blessing for those who hear and “keep” the things written within this book. The Greek word tereo translated “keep” means to “attend to carefully.” That is what we are doing here today.

Revelation: Seals


Revelation Seals Live meeting

When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoever reads, let him understand:) (Matthew 24:15)

We were told by our Lord that we should look for and recognize this event as being close to persecution and His return to rule and reign. Discussing the events surrounding the return of our Lord should invigorate the body of Christ. After all, we are all expectantly waiting for this time. Unfortunately, instead of uniting us as a body working for the Kingdom of Heaven, it often creates division and strife.

As we continue looking into the Book of Revelation, please remember that what we choose to believe concerning the return of the Lord doesn’t affect our salvation. We are all brothers and sisters, adopted into the family of God. If what you believe doesn’t line up with what I believe, that is okay. We can agree to disagree and celebrate the fact that one day, we will all know the truth!

Microsoft Patent, 666, and the Tribulation Timeline

Agape Live Meeting

Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred three score (60) and six. (Revelation 13:18)

Because God created man on the sixth day, metaphorically speaking, the number six represents man. A score is 20 years. We are told to watch for the number 666 which is a sign of the beast which is described in the rest of the chapter. 
Microsoft has received a patent number: WO2020060606. Let’s break down that number: 

WO-2020-060606

  •   WO - refers to the fact that the patent is  worldwide
  •  2020 - the year the patent was established
  •  060606 - zero means, literally, nothing. 06 is actually the number six. three of them make the  number 666 which is the number of the beast - the Antichrist according to Revelation 13
