Begin Text:


Today, we conclude our three-year study on the book of Revelation. Before we get started, I would like to refresh your thoughts on two issues from last month’s presentation.


Issue #1: An outline of 15 events surrounding the Second coming:




a.   6th bowl – demons sent out to the kings of Earth

b.   Armageddon begins as Jesus approaches

c.   Second Coming – 1,335th Day of the Great Tribulation

d.   Righteous dead are resurrected on the Sunday (?) morning

e.   Righteous living called up shortly thereafter

f.   The devil, his demons and employees cast into the lake of fire

g.   A command pronounced by Jesus kills the remaining wicked: “Die”

h.   Devil and his angel’s locked in the Abyss by Sunday noon

i.    Saints return to Heaven with Jesus to determine and judge the wicked  

      (restitution) during the 1,000 years


       - - - - - Earth desolate - - - -

j.    At the end of the 1,000 years, Holy City descends

k.   Wicked dead are resurrected to stand before God’s White Throne

l.     Silence occurs in Heaven – 7th seal – Everyone admits that Jesus is righteous

       and true, every knew bows, but the wicked are not repentant for their sins

m.   After realizing their fate, the devil urges the wicked to attack the Holy City

       he deceives the nations into thinking they can save themselves   

n.   Fire falls from Heaven – burns up wicked – they become ashes

o.   New Heaven / New Earth created




Let’s go through this outline again with some additional details added in …


About 20 days before the Second Coming occurs, when the sixth bowl is poured out, the devil will send three of his most powerful demons to visit the ten kings of Earth.


These demons will be on a mission to get the disillusioned kings of Earth to join with Lucifer and his angels in their attempt to destroy Jesus and the Father as they draw near Earth.

To convince the ten kings that survival is possible, the demons will perform a number of powerful miracles.


These miracles will bolster the courage of these disillusioned kings and they will join forces with Lucifer to destroy Jesus and the Father with nuclear missiles and anything else they can find.


This battle against an approaching Jesus is called Armageddon in Revelation 16 and it will culminate on the 1,335th day of the Great Tribulation with a sudden and total defeat for the enemies of Jesus.


The first visible sign of the Second Coming will be a small cloud in the sky. At first, Jesus and His glorious army will look like a small cloud about the size of a man’s hand.


When Jesus gets close enough, nuclear missiles from the arsenals of Earth’s kings will be fired toward Jesus. These missiles will cause no harm.


The approaching cloud contains the Father and the Lamb and this cloud will continue to grow in brilliance and definition as it nears the Earth.


Thunder and lightening will emanate from this cloud and the people of Earth will begin to cry – out of fear.


Finally, after a couple weeks of failed attempts to destroy Jesus and His army with weapons of war, the cloud containing Jesus and His angels spreads out and it encircles the whole Earth. Its appearance will be like flames of fire and noise louder than a thousand B-52 bombers taking off will shake the Earth and intimidate the living.


The people of Earth will run for cover. The wicked realize they are helpless. They are overwhelmed with fear of being captured alive.


The righteous will be overwhelmed with awe at the glory and majesty of Jesus.


To the wicked, the appearing of Jesus will be a horrible nightmare. For them, Jesus is like a fearful monster in science fiction movies that cannot be stopped from causing great destruction.


At the appointed moment, on the 1,335th day, everything on Earth breaks loose.


The surface of the Earth will be ripped up as if by unseen hands. The land will heave, the mountains and islands will tremble and start moving out of their places….


The once mighty armies of mankind will cower and run for cover.

Revelation 6:15   Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains.


Revelation 6:16   They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the thrown and from the wrath of the Lamb!


Revelation 6:17   For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?”


The Father will come with Jesus:


Matthew 26:63   But Jesus remained silent. The high priest said to him, “I charge you under oath by the living God: Tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God.” 


Matthew 26:64   Yes, it is as you say,” Jesus replied. “But I say to all of you: In the future you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven.”


The first thing to happen during this upheaval will be the resurrection of the righteous dead.
