Revelation 21:7-8, 27 – Heaven Is No Place For Skunks

by

Nobody in their right mind would ever let a skunk into their house, because skunks stink and they will cause a house to stink. And if we don’t allow stinky creatures into our homes, why would anyone think that God would allow them into His. That’s why there are no spiritual skunks in heaven. A […]

Revelation 21:1-8 – Eternity’s Main Attraction

by

In the last few studies we have taken a look at the soon coming millennial kingdom of Christ on earth. And just when we thought things couldn’t get any better we come to chapter 21 and John’s vision of heaven on earth in eternity.  In this vision, we see a new heaven and a new […]

Revelation 20:4-15 – “It’s Not the Environment, Stupid!”

by

Back in the 1992 presidential election campaign, James Carville, Bill Clinton’s chief campaign strategist, coined the slogan “It’s the economy, stupid.” Maybe an effective variation of that slogan would work well for candidates in today’s political environment–one like “it’s the environment, stupid.” Many politicians tell us that if we just change the environment in which […]

Revelation 20:1-3 – Tour of the Millennial Kingdom

by

When Brenda and I were in Israel this past winter, we had a tour guide who took us to the very spot supposedly where Jesus was born in Bethlehem. We also had a chance to tour Golgatha and the Garden Tomb, the places where many Christians believe Jesus was crucified and buried. But as thrilling […]

Revelation 19:11-21 – Honeymoon at Armageddon

by

Several commentators over the years have likened the Millennium to the honeymoon of Christ and His church. And it’s true that immediately after the Wedding Supper of the Lamb we will return to the earth as the bride of Christ to rule and reign with Him for a 1000 years. And it will certainly be […]

Revelation 19:1-10 – Supper’s Almost Ready

by

When I was a little boy, on most days when dinner time came around, my brothers and I would be somewhere outside playing and we would hear my mom shout out to us, “Supper’s almost ready!” We knew that meant it was time to come inside and wash our hands and prepare ourselves for dinner. […]

Revelation 18:6-24 – Remember Lot’s Wife

by

On March 6, 1836, 1500 Mexican soldiers under the command of General Santa Anna stormed the Alamo in San Antonio and slaughtered all of the fortress’s 257 Texas soldiers. Santa Anna thought that the utter defeat at the Alamo would cause Texans elsewhere to flee the territory, but it had the opposite effect. Volunteers by […]

Revelation 18:1-5 – Come Out of Her My People

by

A lot of people each week go to a church of the same denomination that they grew up attending as children without ever questioning whether or not its doctrine is sound. So they might be attending part of the future church of the Antichrist without even knowing it. That’s why God will tell such people […]

Revelation 17 – Church of the Antichrist

by

In today’s lesson we will be looking at the Great Harlot: Mystery Babylon, and there are a lot of people who just skim over this text or ignore it altogether because they see the mystery of her identity as unsolvable. But we are given more than enough clues in Revelation 17 to figure out just […]

Revelation 16 – It Is Done!

For the runners of a race, there is nothing more fulfilling or exhilarating than the moment they cross the finish line and know that their work is done. In today’s lesson in Revelation 16, we will hear a loud voice from heaven coming from the Lord crying out, “It is done!” And His cry will […]
