  • OF JESUS CHRIST THAT WEHAVE COME TO IN OUR STUDY
  • 00:05:42.231 --> 00:05:46.035
  • OF THE BOOK OF REVELATION.
  • 00:05:46.068 --> 00:05:48.304
  • IF YOU HAVE YOUR BIBLES, TURNTO REVELATION CHAPTER 19,
  • 00:05:48.337 --> 00:05:52.074

  • BUT BEFORE WE GETINTO THE TEXT ITSELF,
  • 00:05:56.012 --> 00:05:58.347
  • I WANT TO MENTIONFOUR REASONS
  • 00:05:58.381 --> 00:06:00.082
  • THAT CHRIST MUSTRETURN TO EARTH.
  • 00:06:00.116 --> 00:06:03.753
  • FIRST OF ALL, CHRIST MUST RETURN
  • 00:06:03.786 --> 00:06:06.155
  • TO FULFILL THE PROMISESMADE IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:06:06.189 --> 00:06:11.060
  • IF CHRIST DOESN'T RETURN,THEN IT MEANS HUNDREDS
  • 00:06:11.093 --> 00:06:13.896
  • AND HUNDREDS OF PROPHECIESWILL BE LEFT UNFULFILLED,
  • 00:06:13.930 --> 00:06:17.333
  • AND THEREFORE THEBIBLE IS UNRELIABLE.
  • 00:06:17.366 --> 00:06:21.070
  • SECONDLY, CHRIST MUST RETURNTO JUDGE UNBELIEVERS FOR SIN.
  • 00:06:21.103 --> 00:06:26.943
  • IF JESUS CHRIST DOESN'T RETURN,
  • 00:06:26.976 --> 00:06:29.412
  • SIN AND WICKEDNESS WILL ONLYINTENSIFY IN THE WORLD TODAY.
  • 00:06:29.445 --> 00:06:35.585
  • THIRDLY, CHRIST MUSTRETURN TO DEPOSE SATAN
  • 00:06:35.618 --> 00:06:38.020
  • FROM HIS EARTHLY DOMINION.
  • 00:06:38.054 --> 00:06:40.656
  • AND FINALLY, CHRIST MUSTRETURN TO US ESTABLISH
  • 00:06:40.690 --> 00:06:44.560
  • HIS KINGDOM ON THE EARTH.
  • 00:06:44.594 --> 00:06:47.029
  • THE PROMISE OVER AND OVERAGAIN IS THAT THE SON OF GOD
  • 00:06:47.063 --> 00:06:50.833
  • IS RETURNING TO RULE THIS EARTH
  • 00:06:50.867 --> 00:06:53.669
  • IN PERFECT JUSTICE ANDPERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:06:53.703 --> 00:06:57.306
  • DON'T WE LOOKFORWARD TO THAT DAY
  • 00:06:57.340 --> 00:06:59.342
  • WHEN THIS EARTH WILL FINALLYBE WHAT GOD INTENDED IT TO BE?
  • 00:06:59.375 --> 00:07:03.412
  • THAT PERIOD OF CHRISTRULE ON THE EARTH
  • 00:07:03.446 --> 00:07:05.481
  • IS THE PERIOD OF THE MILLENNIUM
  • 00:07:05.515 --> 00:07:07.216
  • THAT WE WILL LOOK ATBEGINNING NEXT TIME.
  • 00:07:07.250 --> 00:07:10.953
  • THAT'S WHY CHRISTMUST RETURN TO EARTH.
  • 00:07:10.987 --> 00:07:14.390
  • NOW, WHEN WE GET TO CHAPTER 19,
  • 00:07:14.423 --> 00:07:16.792
  • THE SILENCE OF THE RUINEDBABYLON GIVES WAY TO THE PRAISE
  • 00:07:16.826 --> 00:07:21.297
  • IN HEAVEN BY THE SAINTS OVERTHE DESTRUCTION OF BABYLON.
  • 00:07:21.330 --> 00:07:27.737
  • AND THAT PRAISE COMES IN THEFORM OF FOUR HALLELUJAHS.
  • 00:07:27.770 --> 00:07:30.973
  • WHY ARE THE PEOPLEIN HEAVEN SO EXCITED
  • 00:07:31.007 --> 00:07:33.276
  • WHEN BABYLON IS DESTROYED?
  • 00:07:33.309 --> 00:07:35.011
  • FIRST OF ALL,VERSES ONE AND TWO,
  • 00:07:35.044 --> 00:07:36.946
  • HALLELUJAH, FOR THEGREAT HARLOT IS FALLEN.
  • 00:07:36.979 --> 00:07:42.018

  • WHO WAS CORRUPTING THE EARTH."
  • 00:07:57.767 --> 00:07:59.602

  • 00:07:59.635 --> 00:08:01.370
  • FOR THE GREAT CITY IS CONSUMED.
  • 00:08:01.404 --> 00:08:03.873

  • 00:08:08.010 --> 00:08:10.279
  • "FOR HER SMOKE RISESUP FOREVER AND EVER."

  • THAT CITY CONTINUES TOSMOLDER AFTER IT IS DESTROYED,
  • 00:08:15.151 --> 00:08:19.288
  • SYMBOLIZING THAT ITSDESOLATION IS COMPLETE,
  • 00:08:19.322 --> 00:08:23.426
  • BUT IT'S HER PUNISHMENTIS FOREVER AND EVER.
  • 00:08:23.459 --> 00:08:27.163
  • THIS IS JUST THE HINT OFWHAT WE'RE GOING TO SEE
  • 00:08:27.196 --> 00:08:29.031

  • HE HAS VANQUISHEDEVIL FOREVER AND EVER.
  • 00:08:42.712 --> 00:08:46.048

  • "AND THE 24 ELDERS AND THELIVING CREATURES FELL DOWN
  • 00:08:47.617 --> 00:08:51.287

  • AND FINALLY HALLELUJAH FORTHE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY REIGNS.
  • 00:08:55.124 --> 00:09:01.197

  • 00:09:01.230 --> 00:09:05.201

  • EVEN IN THE MIDST OF THECHAOS OF THE TRIBULATION,
  • 00:09:11.307 --> 00:09:15.444
  • WE'RE REMINDED THATGOD IS IN CONTROL

  • OF EVERYTHING THAT IS HAPPENING.
  • 00:09:18.180 --> 00:09:20.883
  • THAT'S WHY PAUL COULD SAY WITHCONFIDENCE, "AND WE KNOW,"
  • 00:09:20.916 --> 00:09:24.320
  • NOT WE HOPE OR WISH, BUT "WEKNOW THAT GOD CAUSES ALL THINGS
  • 00:09:24.353 --> 00:09:30.726
  • TO WORK TOGETHER FOR GOODTO THOSE WHO LOVE HIM
  • 00:09:30.760 --> 00:09:32.662
  • AND TO THOSE CALLEDACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE."
  • 00:09:32.695 --> 00:09:36.165
  • NOW THIS FOUR HALLELUJAH CHORUS
  • 00:09:36.198 --> 00:09:40.202
  • GIVES WAY TO THE FINAL HYMNIN THE BOOK OF REVELATION.
  • 00:09:40.236 --> 00:09:43.339
  • WE'VE LOOKED AT A NUMBER OFHYMNS IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION.
  • 00:09:43.372 --> 00:09:46.409
  • HERE'S THE FINAL ONE.
  • 00:09:46.442 --> 00:09:47.710
  • IT'S A HYMN, A SONG FORTHE LAMB AND HIS BRIDE.
  • 00:09:47.743 --> 00:09:51.013
  • LOOK AT VERSE SEVEN.
  • 00:09:51.047 --> 00:09:52.682
  • "LET US REJOICE AND BE GLADAND GIVE THE GLORY TO HIM,
  • 00:09:52.715 --> 00:09:58.821
  • FOR," WHY? "THE MARRIAGEOF THE LAMB HAS COME
  • 00:09:58.854 --> 00:10:02.692
  • AND HIS BRIDE HASMADE HERSELF READY."
  • 00:10:02.725 --> 00:10:06.862
  • THE REASON WE CANPRAISE GOD AT THIS POINT
  • 00:10:06.896 --> 00:10:09.298
  • IN THE TRIBULATION
  • 00:10:09.331 --> 00:10:12.902
  • IS BECAUSE A MARRIAGEHAS ALREADY TAKEN PLACE.
  • 00:10:12.935 --> 00:10:16.639
  • NOW, DO YOU SEE THE PICTURE HERE
  • 00:10:16.672 --> 00:10:18.607
  • OF OUR RELATIONSHIP TO CHRIST?
  • 00:10:18.641 --> 00:10:21.177
  • PHASE ONE, THE MARRIAGECONTRACT WAS ENTERED INTO.
  • 00:10:21.210 --> 00:10:25.381
  • WHEN DID GOD DESIGNED THATYOU AND I WERE GOING TO BECOME
  • 00:10:25.414 --> 00:10:29.118
  • THE BRIDE OF CHRIST?
  • 00:10:29.151 --> 00:10:30.753
  • BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THEWORLD, THAT WAS DETERMINED.
  • 00:10:30.786 --> 00:10:34.290
  • THAT CONTRACT WAS ENTERED INTO.
  • 00:10:34.323 --> 00:10:36.792
  • GOD CHOSE YOU.
  • 00:10:36.826 --> 00:10:39.361
  • HE CHOSE ME, NOT BECAUSEOF ANYTHING WE DID,
  • 00:10:39.395 --> 00:10:42.531
  • WE WEREN'T EVEN BORN YET,
  • 00:10:42.565 --> 00:10:44.200
  • BUT IT WAS ALL BECAUSE OFHIS GRACE AND HIS PLAN.
  • 00:10:44.233 --> 00:10:47.903
  • WE WERE CHOSEN BEFORE THEFOUNDATION OF THE WORLD,
  • 00:10:47.937 --> 00:10:50.506
  • BUT THE DOWERY WAS PAIDNOT BY THE BRIDE'S FATHER
  • 00:10:50.539 --> 00:10:56.312
  • BUT BY THE GROOMHIMSELF, JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:10:56.345 --> 00:10:59.215
  • WHEN HE SHED HIS BLOODON CALVARY FOR OUR SINS,
  • 00:10:59.248 --> 00:11:02.651
  • THAT WAS THE PAYMENTTHAT WAS MADE
  • 00:11:02.685 --> 00:11:05.020
  • TO SECURE US AS HIS BRIDE.

  • BEFORE THAT WEDDINGSUPPER CAN OCCUR,

  • AT THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:14:58.954 --> 00:15:01.190
  • LOOK AT VERSE 11, ADESCRIPTION OF THE COMING KING.
  • 00:15:01.223 --> 00:15:04.159
  • "AND I SAW HEAVENOPEN," JOHN SAYS,
  • 00:15:04.193 --> 00:15:06.996

  • THAT WORD FAITHFUL MEANSABSOLUTELY TRUSTWORTHY,
  • 00:15:12.434 --> 00:15:16.138
  • TRUE, GENUINE, "AND INRIGHTEOUSNESS HE JUDGES

  • AND WAGES WAR, FOR HISEYES OR A FLAME OF FIRE."
  • 00:15:20.442 --> 00:15:24.613

  • 00:15:34.123 --> 00:15:38.494
  • IT'S NOT IN HIS BLOOD,
  • 00:15:38.527 --> 00:15:39.695
  • IT'S IN THE BLOOD OFHIS ADVERSARIES ON EARTH
  • 00:15:39.728 --> 00:15:42.398
  • WHO ARE FIGHTING HIM.
  • 00:15:42.431 --> 00:15:43.565
  • "AND HIS NAME IS CALLEDTHE WORD OF GOD."
  • 00:15:43.599 --> 00:15:46.035
  • THIS IS WHAT WAS ANTICIPATEDIN ZACHARIAH 14:3-4
  • 00:15:46.068 --> 00:15:50.472
  • ABOUT JESUS RETURNING TOEARTH, TO THE MOUNT OF OLIVES,
  • 00:15:50.506 --> 00:15:54.676
  • CAUSING SUCH A REACTIONTHAT THE MOUNT OF OLIVES
  • 00:15:54.710 --> 00:15:58.747
  • WILL SPLIT IN TWO.
  • 00:15:58.781 --> 00:16:00.983
  • THIS IS THE SECOND COMINGOF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:16:01.016 --> 00:16:04.686
  • AND NOTICE IN VERSE 14, THEDESCRIPTION OF THE KING'S ARMY.
  • 00:16:04.720 --> 00:16:08.424
  • "AND THE ARMIES WHICH ARE INHEAVEN, CLOTHED IN FINE LINEN,
  • 00:16:08.457 --> 00:16:13.262
  • WHITE AND CLEAN, WEREFOLLOWING HIM ON WHITE HORSES."
  • 00:16:13.295 --> 00:16:17.132
  • WHO IS THIS ARMY FROMHEAVEN THAT FOLLOWS HIM?
  • 00:16:17.166 --> 00:16:19.668
  • SOME PEOPLE SAY, WELL,IT'S THE ANGELS, MAYBE.
  • 00:16:19.701 --> 00:16:22.271
  • THE TRIBULATION SAINTS, MAYBE.
  • 00:16:22.304 --> 00:16:24.073
  • MAYBE IT WAS THE OLDTESTAMENT SAINTS.
  • 00:16:24.106 --> 00:16:25.974
  • IT'S THE CHURCH.
  • 00:16:26.008 --> 00:16:27.242
  • IT IS YOU AND I.
  • 00:16:27.276 --> 00:16:29.078
  • HOW DO I KNOW THAT?
  • 00:16:29.111 --> 00:16:30.946
  • THAT DESCRIPTION, "THEYWERE CLOTHED IN FINE LINEN."
  • 00:16:30.979 --> 00:16:34.616
  • REMEMBER WE SAWEARLIER THAT THE BRIDE
  • 00:16:34.650 --> 00:16:36.919
  • WAS MAKING HERSELFREADY AND FINE LINEN,
  • 00:16:36.952 --> 00:16:39.721
  • WHICH IS THE RIGHTEOUSOF THE SAINTS.
  • 00:16:39.755 --> 00:16:43.492
  • NOW LOOK AT A DESCRIPTIONOF THE WARRIOR KING
  • 00:16:43.525 --> 00:16:45.727
  • IN VERSES 15 AND 16.
  • 00:16:45.761 --> 00:16:47.596
  • "AND FROM HIS MOUTHCOMES A SHARP SWORD,
  • 00:16:47.629 --> 00:16:49.798
  • SO THAT WITH IT, HE MAYSTRIKE DOWN THE NATIONS."
  • 00:16:49.832 --> 00:16:54.269
  • WHAT IS THAT SHARP SWORD?IT'S THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:16:54.303 --> 00:16:57.973
  • THE WORD OF GOD ISALIVE AND IT'S ACTIVE
  • 00:16:58.006 --> 00:17:00.008
  • AND IT'S SHARPER THANANY TWO-EDGED SWORD.
  • 00:17:00.042 --> 00:17:03.312
  • "AND HE TREADS THE WINE PRESS

  • OF THE FIERCE WRATHOF GOD, THE ALMIGHTY."
  • 00:17:06.081 --> 00:17:09.518
  • WE SAW THAT IMAGERYEARLIER IN CHAPTER 14,
  • 00:17:09.551 --> 00:17:12.121
  • "HE WILL TREAD THE WINE PRESSOF THE FIERCE WRATH OF GOD."
  • 00:17:12.154 --> 00:17:16.625
  • THIS BRINGS ABOUT,THERE ARE THREE ASPECTS
  • 00:17:16.658 --> 00:17:19.294
  • OF THIS VICTORY OF THE KING.
  • 00:17:19.328 --> 00:17:20.963
  • FIRST OF ALL, IT'S REFERREDTO AS THE SUPPER OF GOD.
  • 00:17:20.996 --> 00:17:25.601
  • SO, LISTEN TO ME.
  • 00:17:25.634 --> 00:17:27.536
  • IN THE BOOK OFREVELATION CHAPTER 19,
  • 00:17:27.569 --> 00:17:30.105
  • THERE ARE ACTUALLY TWOSUPPERS THAT ARE DESCRIBED.
  • 00:17:30.139 --> 00:17:33.675
  • THE FIRST SUPPER WE'VEALREADY TALKED ABOUT,
  • 00:17:33.709 --> 00:17:36.078
  • THE WEDDING SUPPER OF THE LAMB.
  • 00:17:36.111 --> 00:17:38.480
  • AND JOHN SAID, BLESSED, HAPPY,
  • 00:17:38.514 --> 00:17:40.349
  • ARE THOSE WHO GET ANINVITATION TO THAT SUPPER.
  • 00:17:40.382 --> 00:17:43.819
  • BUT THIS IS ADIFFERENT SUPPER HERE.
  • 00:17:43.852 --> 00:17:45.988
  • IT'S CALLED THE SUPPER OF GOD.
  • 00:17:46.021 --> 00:17:50.526
  • AND THAT IS AN INVITATION
  • 00:17:50.559 --> 00:17:52.127
  • YOU NEVER WANT TORECEIVE IN THE MAIL.
  • 00:17:52.161 --> 00:17:55.497
  • YOU'LL SEE WHAT I MEAN HERE.
  • 00:17:55.531 --> 00:17:56.899
  • THIS IS A SUPPER OFJUDGMENT. VERSES 17 AND 18.
  • 00:17:56.932 --> 00:18:00.602
  • "THEN I SAW AN ANGELSTANDING IN THE SUN,

  • WHO WILL BE SLAUGHTEREDON THAT DAY.
  • 00:18:32.234 --> 00:18:35.103
  • THAT IS THE GREAT SUPPER OF GOD.
  • 00:18:35.137 --> 00:18:38.073
  • NOTICE SECONDLY, THEJUDGMENT OF THE BEAST
  • 00:18:38.106 --> 00:18:40.709
  • AND THE FALSE PROPHET.
  • 00:18:40.742 --> 00:18:42.177

  • WHICH BURNS WITH BRIMSTONE."
  • 00:19:12.074 --> 00:19:15.043
  • THIS IS THE FIRST MENTIONOF THE LAKE OF FIRE
  • 00:19:15.077 --> 00:19:17.179
  • IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION.
  • 00:19:17.212 --> 00:19:19.047

  • FOR THOSE WHO DIEAPART FROM CHRIST.
  • 00:19:22.050 --> 00:19:24.987
  • AND THAT IS THE AWFULTRUTH ABOUT HELL,
  • 00:19:25.020 --> 00:19:27.856
  • THE FINAL JUDGMENTPLACE OF THE UNSAVED.
  • 00:19:27.889 --> 00:19:31.860
  • A PERSON WHO GOES TO HELLISN'T JUST DESTROYED.

  • WILL SPEND ETERNITYTHERE AS WELL.
  • 00:19:55.150 --> 00:19:57.719
  • AND THEN WE SEE THISFINAL WORD IN VERSE 21
  • 00:19:57.753 --> 00:19:59.788
