Many regard Revelation as the hardest book in the New Testament. It is full of strange, lurid, and sometimes bizarre and violent imagery. As a result, people who are quite at home in the Gospels, Acts and Paul's letters find themselves tiptoeing around Revelation with a sense that they don't really belong there. But they do! This book offers one of the clearest and sharpest visions of God's ultimate purpose for the whole creation. Here we see how the powerful forces of evil can be and are being overthrown through the victory of Jesus the Messiah, which continues to inspire and strengthen his followers today. The guides in this series by Tom Wright can be used on their own or alongside his New Testament for Everyone commentaries. They are designed to help you understand the Bible in fresh ways under the guidance of one of the world's leading New Testament scholars. Thoughtful questions, prayer suggestions, and useful background and cultural information all guide you into a deeper understanding of the Christian story and the Christian life.

Revelation: A Book Of Symbols Made Easy

View: 718

Author John T. Addicks Jr. paints a grim but realistic picture of what is to come on this earth based on what is written in the book of Revelation—the Rapture, the Tribulation, and the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. As a tool used by God to help everyone prepare for the end times, John presents us with facts gathered from the Bible to convince us to choose what is right and to walk the right path to God. He shows us what will happen (and it will happen) to everyone on this earth, and no one will be spared. And only God knows when this will happen. John also shows us, through a short story, probable situations that might happen once these events will occur. His one goal for all this is to save everyone from meeting this dire and horrible fate. He wants all of us to realize the error of our ways and repent and ask forgiveness from God—before it’s too late.

THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST - REV. 19:1-21 A. GENERAL - 1. Chapter 19 - brings to a close the Great Tribulation period (Daniel’s 70th Week – Dan. 9:27) and ushers in the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ. 2. Christ promised he would come again (John 14:3). 40 days after his resurrection (Acts 1:3), Christ ascended into heaven from the Mount of Olives; just East of Jerusalem (Acts 1:9). Two angels told the apostles Jesus would return in like manner (Acts 1:11). In Rev. 19:11-16, Christ returns with armies of saints and angels. 3. The prophecies of Zechariah will be fulfilled: “Thus says the Lord: I am returned to Zion and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem...” (Zech. 8:3); “And his feet shall stand in that day upon the Mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the East...” (Zech. 14:4). 4. In Chapter 19 - there are actually 2 scenes: 1 in heaven which is one of great joy and 1 on earth which is one of great judgment. B. JOY IN HEAVEN (REV. 19:1-10) – 1. SONGS OF THE SAINTS - REV. 19:1-6) – a. TIME SEQUENCE - (1) After this, I (John) heard - what sounded like the roar of a great multitude in heaven shouting: “Hallelujah - salvation - glory – power – belong to our God for true and just are his judgments – he has condemned the great prostitute (whore, KJV) - who corrupted the earth by her adulteries - he has avenged on her the blood of his servants!” (Rev. 19:1-2). NOTE: “After this” refers to the destruction of the apostate religious system in Rev. 17 and the corrupt commercial system in Rev. 18. In Rev. 18:20 the call to rejoice was issued; now we have the response to that call.

General editor Lloyd J. Ogilvie brings together a team of skilled and exceptional communicators to blend sound scholarship with life-related illustrations. The design for the Preacher's Commentary gives the reader an overall outline of each book of the Bible. Following the introduction, which reveals the author's approach and salient background on the book, each chapter of the commentary provides the Scripture to be exposited. The New King James Bible has been chosen for the Preacher's Commentary because it combines with integrity the beauty of language, underlying Hebrew and Greek textual basis, and thought-flow of the 1611 King James Version, while replacing obsolete verb forms and other archaisms with their everyday contemporary counterparts for greater readability. Reverence for God is preserved in the capitalization of all pronouns referring to the Father, Son, or Holy Spirit. Readers who are more comfortable with another translation can readily find the parallel passage by means of the chapter and verse reference at the end of each passage being exposited. The paragraphs of exposition combine fresh insights to the Scripture, application, rich illustrative material, and innovative ways of utilizing the vibrant truth for his or her own life and for the challenge of communicating it with vigor and vitality.
