Revelation outline - the near future

REVELATION OUTLINE

 

Introduction – Scripture states that there is a blessing for each individual who reads this book, as well as for those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it.  The purpose of the Book of Revelation is to reveal events which will take place immediately before, during, and following the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.  The New Testament opens with the Four Gospels which describe the First Coming of Jesus Christ.  While most of the world did not notice His First Coming, His Second coming will be seen by the entire world.  Chapters 1 - 3 deal with the description of Christ in His glorified body and then His Church, Chapters 4 & 5 move up to the God’s Throne in Heaven.  Chapters 6-18 describe the last seven years preceding the Second Coming of Christ and particularly emphasize the Great Tribulation, occurring in the last three and one-half years before His coming.  The Second Coming itself is given the most graphic portrayal anywhere in the Bible in Chapter 19, followed by the millennial reign of Christ described in Chapter 20.  The eternal state is revealed in Chapters 21-22.  So the obvious purpose of the book is to complete the prophetic theme presented earlier in the prophecies of the Old Testament.  Specific knowledge and anticipation of God’s future program is an incentive to holy living and a commitment to Jesus Christ.

 

I.  THE PROLOGUE (Chapter 1) – still in the Church age era, the age of the Gentiles.  There is no need for a temple.  The believers in Jesus Christ have God’s Holy Spirit living in them and can approach God directly through the blood of Jesus Christ anywhere, anytime.  Whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord will be saved (Romans 10:13)

SPECIAL WARNING

 

Rev. 13:15  He (the beast) was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.

16  He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead,

17  so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.

Rev. 14:9  A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: "If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand,

10  he, too, will drink of the wine of God's fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb.

11  And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever. There is no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name."


INVITATION


Revelation 22:17  The spirit and the bride say, "Come!"  And let him who hears say, "Come!"  Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.
