Begin Text:

Thus far, we have completed a verse-by-verse study in the book of Revelation through Chapter 14:5.

At this point, a matrix of many parts is coming together.

Many of you have told me that you find it easy to follow along as we study a specific prophecy, but when it comes to synchronizing everything together, all of a sudden there’s total confusion because there are so many parts. Yes, it takes time and effort to put this story together. But, it can be done! You can do it if you try.


Consider this: A day is coming when all of these things will be easy to understand. As we go through the Great Tribulation, sincere people will be able to synthesize all of these prophetic parts because we will see them and experience them.


When the Great Tribulation begins, the traditional rubbish that has been heaped on the Bible will be removed. Scholars will be humiliated. Pastors will be embarrassed. Popular TV Evangelists will be held in contempt for misleading millions of people because a day is coming when the Bible will speak plainly for itself.


The Bible will not be a complicated book during the Great Tribulation!


Remember, the Bible is one of God’s Two Witnesses. God has seen to it over the past 200 years that Bibles have been translated and distributed most everywhere, and the Holy Spirit will give every honest hearted person the ability to see and understand Bible truth once the walls of religion paradigms are broken down.


Revelation’s story will be as easy to understand as 2 + 2 during the Great Tribulation – for the honest in heart.


Daniel 12:10   “… None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.”


Because the Great Tribulation has not begun, it is difficult to project ourselves and our thinking into the future – into a different “world order.”


But, once the first four trumpets have occurred, it will be quite easy to open up the book of Revelation and to show people that Revelation 8 speaks about fiery showers of burning hail, tow asteroid impacts and darkness over a third of the Earth. At that time, people will not be able to stand firm on their traditional beliefs because their traditional beliefs will have been proven worthless.


The destruction of traditional beliefs at the beginning of the Great Tribulation is very important to understand. A shattered paradigm is the best thing that God can do to open up the mind and heart of an honest person so that he can intelligently consider the testimony of Jesus that the 144,000 will speak.


Ok, you might be wondering, if the Bible is going to be easy to understand during the Great Tribulation, why do we need to understand the prophecies of Daniel and Revelation right now?


Good question. A lot of people don’t want to be bothered with the prophecies.


However, which would you rather experience: Sheer terror when you behold God’s wrath or would you rather experience awesome respect for a God who has been abundantly patient with mankind, but His patience has run out because humanity has become hopelessly defiant?


Which is better: Knowing God’s objectives and the means through which He is accomplishing them or hating God because of your suffering?


Which is better: knowing the Great Tribulation is 1,335 days in length or believing it is 7 years in length?


God wants us to know and understand Him. He’s about to do something unusual.

He wants everyone to know IF they want to know.


Before we begin today’s study with Revelation 14:6, let’s do a quick review.

To help you put several parts together, I have created a little book called “The Chart Book.”


It’s only 25 pages in length but it contains a lot of information --- information that has been hidden for 2,600 years!


If you have access to the Internet, you can download the book for free. You can print out the charts and share them with your remaining friends.


If you do not have access to the Internet, you can order a copy of the Chart Book for $10. This covers the postage, a nice binder and the color prints.

Review Charts 10, 11, 12


We now turn our attention to the 7th prophecy in Revelation and it begins with Revelation 14:6 because chronological order is broken with verse 6.

In other words, the first angel’s message in verse 6 does not occur after the 144,000 are standing around God’s throne.


Because each apocalyptic prophecy has a beginning point in time and an ending point in time, let’s read a few verses of this prophecy to see if we can figure out the beginning point in time….


Revelation 14:6   Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth – to every nation, tribe, language and people.


Revelation 14:7   He said in a loud voice, “Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come. Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water.”


Revelation 14:8   A Second angel followed and said, “Fallen, Fallen is Babylon the Great, which made all the nations drink the maddening wine of her adulteries.”


Revelation 14:9   A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the beastand his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand,


Revelation 14:10   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.


Revelation 14:11   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.”


These three messages are the most serious messages recorded in the Bible and once you understand what they mean, you will be impressed at howoffensive they are. Once you understand the meaning of these three messages, you will understand how these messages will separate the people of Earth into two groups. These messages will have “atomic power” when they are delivered. There is nothing quite like them in the entire Bible.
