  • AS WE REVIEW WHERE WE'VE BEEN.
  • 00:02:51.060 --> 00:02:53.329
  • REMEMBER THIS REVELATION WASGIVEN TO THE APOSTLE JOHN
  • 00:02:53.363 --> 00:02:56.799
  • WHEN HE WAS ON PATMOS,THE ISLAND OF PATMOS,
  • 00:02:56.833 --> 00:02:59.636
  • EXILED FOR REFUSING TOWORSHIP THE ROMAN EMPEROR.

  • WHY?
  • 00:03:22.325 --> 00:03:23.559
  • BECAUSE JESUS CHRISTIS COMING BACK AGAIN
  • 00:03:23.593 --> 00:03:26.896
  • TO REWARD THE RIGHTEOUS ANDTO PUNISH THE UNRIGHTEOUS.
  • 00:03:26.929 --> 00:03:31.034
  • THAT'S THE THEME OFTHE BOOK OF REVELATION.
  • 00:03:31.067 --> 00:03:33.603
  • IN CHAPTER 1, WE HAVE THEVISION OF THE GLORIFIED LORD.
  • 00:03:33.636 --> 00:03:37.874
  • THAT'S HOW JOHN SAW HIM.
  • 00:03:37.907 --> 00:03:39.375
  • NOT AS THE SUFFERING SAVIORWHO HAD BEEN NAILED TO A CROSS
  • 00:03:39.409 --> 00:03:43.379

  • GOD PICKED OUT SEVENCHURCHES IN ASIA MINOR
  • 00:03:51.621 --> 00:03:55.358
  • AND HAD A SPECIFICMESSAGE TO THOSE CHURCHES.
  • 00:03:55.391 --> 00:03:58.861
  • BUT TO OUR CHURCHES, WELLIS WHAT GOD LOOKS FOR,
  • 00:03:58.895 --> 00:04:01.798
  • WHAT GOD COMMENDS AND WHATHE CONDEMNS IN A CHURCH.
  • 00:04:01.831 --> 00:04:06.002

  • PRAISE IN HEAVEN AND THEOPENING OF THE SCROLL.
  • 00:04:09.706 --> 00:04:13.009
  • THIS IS RIGHT BEFORETHE BEGINNING OF THEGREAT TRIBULATION.

  • AND WE SEE THE CHURCHALREADY IN HEAVEN,

  • THE CHURCHES AROUND THETHRONE OF GOD PRAISING GOD.

  • THE SEVEN SEALEDBOOK OF REDEMPTION.
  • 00:04:29.625 --> 00:04:32.595

  • TO RECLAIM THIS EARTHTHAT BELONGS TO HIM.
  • 00:04:36.466 --> 00:04:39.502
  • AND SOMEBODY ASKED, WHO ISWORTHY TO OPEN THIS BOOK.
  • 00:04:39.535 --> 00:04:43.139
  • AND ONLY THE LAMB OF GOD, JESUS,
  • 00:04:43.172 --> 00:04:45.508
  • WAS WORTHY TO OPEN THE BOOK.

  • WHEN HE DOES OPEN THATSEVEN SEALED SCROLL,
  • 00:04:47.977 --> 00:04:51.781
  • WE SEE IN REVELATION SIX,
  • 00:04:51.814 --> 00:04:53.783

  • IT IS A TIME THAT GOD POURSOUT HIS WRATH ON THE EARTH,

  • NOT ONLY TO PUNISH UNBELIEVERS
  • 00:05:06.596 --> 00:05:08.731
  • BUT ALSO TO REDEEM THOSEWHO WOULD TRUST IN CHRIST.
  • 00:05:08.765 --> 00:05:12.702
  • THIS IS MAN'S LASTCHANCE TO BE SAVED.
  • 00:05:12.735 --> 00:05:15.972
  • AND WE SEE THE FIRST OF THOSEJUDGMENTS IN CHAPTER 6.
  • 00:05:16.005 --> 00:05:19.609
  • REMEMBER THE FIRST OFTHOSE SEALED JUDGEMENTS
  • 00:05:19.642 --> 00:05:23.312
  • WAS THE KING ON THE HORSE
  • 00:05:23.346 --> 00:05:27.917
  • AND HE HAD A BOWBUT NO ARROWS IN IT.
  • 00:05:27.950 --> 00:05:30.720
  • THIS IS THE BEGINNINGOF ANTICHRIST.
  • 00:05:30.753 --> 00:05:33.689
  • IT IS INTERESTING THAT HE WILLASSUME POWER, NOT BY FORCE.
  • 00:05:33.723 --> 00:05:38.060
  • THERE'S NO BOW IN THAT ARROW.
  • 00:05:38.094 --> 00:05:39.629
  • HE RECEIVES IT BY ACCLAMATION.
  • 00:05:39.662 --> 00:05:42.265
  • THE WORLD UNANIMOUSLY TURNS
  • 00:05:42.298 --> 00:05:44.367
  • TO THE ANTICHRISTFOR LEADERSHIP.
  • 00:05:44.400 --> 00:05:46.702
  • AND THE REASON IS VERY CLEAR.
  • 00:05:46.736 --> 00:05:48.337
  • THERE'S APPARENTLYSOME WORLDWIDE CRISIS
  • 00:05:48.371 --> 00:05:51.707
  • THAT HAS MADE PEOPLEDESPERATE FOR ANYBODY
  • 00:05:51.741 --> 00:05:54.043
  • WHO PRETENDS TO HAVE ANANSWER TO THAT PROBLEM.

  • DON'T WE SEE THATTODAY RIGHT NOW?
  • 00:05:57.613 --> 00:06:00.149
  • WHERE WE ARE IN THE,
  • 00:06:00.183 --> 00:06:01.617
  • LOOK, I'M NOT DENYING THEREALITY OF THIS PANDEMIC.
  • 00:06:01.651 --> 00:06:03.853
  • IT IS REAL.
  • 00:06:03.886 --> 00:06:05.154
  • IT IS KILLING HUNDREDSOF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:06:05.188 --> 00:06:08.024
  • PEOPLE ARE GETTING SICK.
  • 00:06:08.057 --> 00:06:09.792
  • I THINK IT IS RIGHTTO HAVE RESTRICTIONS

  • AND TO TRY TO SLOWTHIS PANDEMIC.
  • 00:06:12.595 --> 00:06:15.865
  • BUT THE BIBLE INDICATESIN THE FUTURE,

  • AFTER A GREAT WORLDWIDE CRISIS.
  • 00:06:24.307 --> 00:06:26.476
  • PERHAPS IT IS A CRISISTHAT HAS COINCIDED
  • 00:06:26.509 --> 00:06:29.612
  • WITH THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:06:29.645 --> 00:06:32.148
  • PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR ANSWERS.
  • 00:06:32.181 --> 00:06:33.883

  • AND THAT IS THE BEGINNINGOF THESE SEALED JUDGMENTS.
  • 00:06:41.524 --> 00:06:44.527
  • AND CHAPTER 7, WE SEE THE144.000 JEWISH EVANGELISTS.
  • 00:06:44.560 --> 00:06:50.666
  • AT THE BEGINNINGOF THE TRIBULATION,
  • 00:06:50.700 --> 00:06:52.134
  • GOD WILL SAVE AND HE WILLSEAL WITH PROTECTION,
  • 00:06:52.168 --> 00:06:54.604
  • 144.000 JEWISH EVANGELISTS.
  • 00:06:54.637 --> 00:06:58.941
  • AND THEN IN CHAPTERS8 AND 9,
  • 00:06:58.975 --> 00:07:00.610
  • WE SEE THE SECONDSERIES OF JUDGMENTS,
  • 00:07:00.643 --> 00:07:02.945
  • THE TRUMPET JUDGMENTS.
  • 00:07:02.979 --> 00:07:04.680
  • AND THEN IN CHAPTER 10,
  • 00:07:04.714 --> 00:07:06.682
  • THE MIGHTY ANGEL TAKESA STAND ON THE EARTH,
  • 00:07:06.716 --> 00:07:10.620
  • REMEMBER ONE FOOT ON THELAND, ONE FOOT IN THE SEA
  • 00:07:10.653 --> 00:07:15.358
  • AND HE ANNOUNCESTHAT THE END IS NEAR.
  • 00:07:15.391 --> 00:07:18.728
  • IN REVELATION 11,THE TWO WITNESSES,
  • 00:07:18.761 --> 00:07:21.631
  • GOD WILL RAISE UP TWO WITNESSESAND THEY WILL BE KILLED
  • 00:07:21.664 --> 00:07:26.502
  • BECAUSE THEY DELIVERTHE MESSAGE OF GOD.
  • 00:07:26.536 --> 00:07:28.804
  • AND THEY WILL BEMIRACULOUSLY RESURRECTED

  • THESE WILL BE TWO LAMP-STANDS,THE BIBLE DESCRIBES THEM,
  • 00:07:33.409 --> 00:07:37.113
  • LIKE MOSES AND ELIJAH,SHINING IN THE DARKNESS.
  • 00:07:37.146 --> 00:07:41.150
  • AND THEN IN CHAPTERS 12 AND 13,
  • 00:07:41.183 --> 00:07:43.653
  • AN EXPLANATION ABOUTTHE SATANIC TRINITY.
  • 00:07:43.686 --> 00:07:47.223
  • JUST AS THERE IS AHEAVENLY TRINITY,
  • 00:07:47.256 --> 00:07:49.792
  • THE FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT,THERE IS A SATANIC TRINITY.
  • 00:07:49.825 --> 00:07:54.630
  • THE DRAGON, THATIS SATAN HIMSELF,

  • 00:07:57.466 --> 00:08:02.004
  • IN REVELATION 14, THERE IS THEPICTURE OF THE TWO HARVEST.
  • 00:08:02.038 --> 00:08:06.742
  • REMEMBER THE ANGELWITH THE SICKLE
  • 00:08:06.776 --> 00:08:08.878
  • THAT IS ABOUT TO GATHERTWO DIFFERENT HARVEST
  • 00:08:08.911 --> 00:08:13.449
  • FROM THE EARTH COMPAREDTO RIPE GRAPES.
  • 00:08:13.482 --> 00:08:16.819
  • THERE IS THEHARVEST OF THE SAVED
  • 00:08:16.852 --> 00:08:19.055
  • WHOM GOD WILL GATHER TO HIMSELF,
  • 00:08:19.088 --> 00:08:21.357
  • BUT THERE IS THEHARVEST OF THE UNSAVED.
  • 00:08:21.390 --> 00:08:24.293
  • REMEMBER THE PICTUREOF THOSE GRAPES
  • 00:08:24.327 --> 00:08:26.929
  • THAT ARE ABOUT TO BURST FORTH,NOT WITH JUICE BUT WITH SAND
  • 00:08:26.963 --> 00:08:31.400
  • AND GOD TAKES THOSERIPENED GRAPES
  • 00:08:31.434 --> 00:08:33.936
  • AND HE THROWS THEM IN THE VAT
  • 00:08:33.970 --> 00:08:37.340
  • AND THEY ARETRAMPLED IN THAT VAT
  • 00:08:37.373 --> 00:08:40.042
  • UNTIL THEIR BLOOD ISSPURTING OUT AT ARMAGEDDON,
  • 00:08:40.076 --> 00:08:43.512
  • UP TO THE BRIDLE OF A HORSE,
  • 00:08:43.546 --> 00:08:45.715
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THOSEARE THE TWO HARVEST.
  • 00:08:45.748 --> 00:08:48.351
  • AND THEN INREVELATION 15 AND 16,
  • 00:08:48.384 --> 00:08:50.786
  • WE HAVE THE FINAL JUDGMENTS,
  • 00:08:50.820 --> 00:08:52.955
  • THE BOWL JUDGMENTSAGAINST EARTH.
  • 00:08:52.989 --> 00:08:55.591
  • AND WHEN WE COME TOTHE END OF CHAPTER 16,
  • 00:08:55.625 --> 00:08:57.893
  • WORTH THE VERYBRINK OF ARMAGEDDON
  • 00:08:57.927 --> 00:09:00.596
  • AND THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:09:00.630 --> 00:09:03.132
  • BUT BEFORE THAT HAPPENS, JOHNEXPLAINS TWO OTHER THINGS
  • 00:09:03.165 --> 00:09:06.702
  • HE WANTS US TO UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:09:06.736 --> 00:09:08.638
  • IN REVELATION 17,WE FIND THE JUDGMENT
  • 00:09:08.671 --> 00:09:12.608
  • AGAINST THE DESTRUCTIONOF RELIGIOUS BABYLON,
  • 00:09:12.642 --> 00:09:15.945
  • THE HARLOT OF BABYLON,
  • 00:09:15.978 --> 00:09:17.380
  • THE FALSE CHURCHTHAT AIDS ANTICHRIST
  • 00:09:17.413 --> 00:09:20.850
  • IN HIS RISE TO POWER,GOD DESTROYS IT.
  • 00:09:20.883 --> 00:09:24.186
  • AND THEN IN REVELATION 18,
  • 00:09:24.220 --> 00:09:26.389
  • THE DESTRUCTION OFCOMMERCIAL BABYLON,
  • 00:09:26.422 --> 00:09:28.724
  • THE ECONOMIC SYSTEM OF A WORLD
  • 00:09:28.758 --> 00:09:31.093
  • THAT GOES UP IN SMOKE OVER NIGHT
  • 00:09:31.127 --> 00:09:33.996
  • BECAUSE OF THE JUDGMENT OF GOD.
  • 00:09:34.030 --> 00:09:36.365
  • WHEN WE COME TO CHAPTER 19,
  • 00:09:36.399 --> 00:09:38.434
  • WE SEE ALL THE WORLDFORCES GATHERED
  • 00:09:38.467 --> 00:09:40.703
  • ON THE PLAIN OF MEGIDDO FORTHE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON
  • 00:09:40.736 --> 00:09:44.073
  • IN WHICH THEY ATTEMPT TOOVERTHROW THE ANTICHRIST.
  • 00:09:44.106 --> 00:09:46.942
  • BUT IN THE MIDST OFTHAT GREAT WORLD BATTLE,
  • 00:09:46.976 --> 00:09:50.079
  • THE HEAVEN IS OPEN,THE KING APPEARS
  • 00:09:50.112 --> 00:09:52.948
  • AND WE APPEAR WITH HIMTO RETURN TO EARTH.
  • 00:09:52.982 --> 00:09:55.818
  • AND AT THAT POINT, THEBEAST AND THE FALSE PROPHET
  • 00:09:55.851 --> 00:09:59.455
  • ARE CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.
  • 00:09:59.488 --> 00:10:02.324
  • AND REMEMBER WHEN WEGET TO CHAPTER 20,
  • 00:10:02.358 --> 00:10:04.794
  • WE HAVE THE MILLENNIUMWHEN CHRIST RULES
  • 00:10:04.827 --> 00:10:07.563
  • ON THE THRONE OF DAVID INISRAEL FOR 1.000 YEARS,
  • 00:10:07.596 --> 00:10:10.466
  • SATAN IS BOUND DURING THAT TIME.
  • 00:10:10.499 --> 00:10:12.768
  • BUT AT THE END OFTHE MILLENNIUM,
  • 00:10:12.802 --> 00:10:15.237
  • THERE IS A FINAL REBELLIONTHAT SATAN LEADS.
  • 00:10:15.271 --> 00:10:18.741
  • AND AFTER THAT REBELLION,GOD SAYS ENOUGH.
  • 00:10:18.774 --> 00:10:22.311
  • AND HE CAST SATANINTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.
  • 00:10:22.344 --> 00:10:26.182
  • AND THERE IS A RESURRECTION,
  • 00:10:26.215 --> 00:10:27.783
  • THE SECOND RESURRECTIONOF ALL THE UNSAVED DEAD
  • 00:10:27.817 --> 00:10:30.820
  • SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME.
  • 00:10:30.853 --> 00:10:32.722
  • AND THEY ARE JUDGEDACCORDING TO THE BOOK,
  • 00:10:32.755 --> 00:10:36.959
  • THE LAMB'S BOOK OFLIFE AND TO THE BOOKS,
  • 00:10:36.992 --> 00:10:39.161
  • THE RECORD OF THEIR DEEDS.
  • 00:10:39.195 --> 00:10:40.963
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYSIF ANY MAN'S NAME
  • 00:10:40.996 --> 00:10:42.898
  • WAS NOT FOUND WRITTENIN THE BOOK OF LIFE,
  • 00:10:42.932 --> 00:10:45.167
  • THE LAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE,
  • 00:10:45.201 --> 00:10:46.836
  • HE WAS CAST INTOTHE LAKE OF FIRE
  • 00:10:46.869 --> 00:10:49.038
  • AND TORMENTED THERE DAY ANDNIGHT, FOREVER AND EVER.
  • 00:10:49.071 --> 00:10:52.875
  • AND AFTER THAT GREATWHITE THRONE JUDGMENT,
  • 00:10:52.908 --> 00:10:55.578
  • THE PRESENT EARTH AND HEAVENARE DESTROYED BY FIRE.
  • 00:10:55.611 --> 00:10:59.248
  • AND IN REVELATION 21 AND 22,
  • 00:10:59.281 --> 00:11:02.017
  • JOHN SAYS, I SAW A NEWHEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH
  • 00:11:02.051 --> 00:11:05.788
  • FOR THE FIRST HEAVEN ANDEARTH HAVE PASSED AWAY.
  • 00:11:05.821 --> 00:11:08.958
  • AND THERE IS NO LONGER ANY SEA.
  • 00:11:08.991 --> 00:11:13.062
  • THAT IS IN THE BOOK OFREVELATION IN FIVE MINUTES.
  • 00:11:13.095 --> 00:11:15.998
  • AREN'T YOU SORRY, ICOULDN'T DO THAT QUICKER
  • 00:11:16.031 --> 00:11:18.634
  • DURING THIS LAST YEAR,
  • 00:11:18.667 --> 00:11:20.302
  • BUT THAT'S EXACTLY WHEREWE BEEN, IN THE REVELATION.
  • 00:11:20.336 --> 00:11:24.974
  • AND NOW WE COMETO A FURTHER WORD
  • 00:11:25.007 --> 00:11:27.777
  • ABOUT THE NEW HEAVEN ANDNEW EARTH IN CHAPTER 22,
  • 00:11:27.810 --> 00:11:31.280
  • SOME FINAL WORDSOF ENCOURAGEMENT,
  • 00:11:31.313 --> 00:11:33.749
  • A WARNING AND GOD'SFINAL BENEDICTION.
  • 00:11:33.783 --> 00:11:37.653
  • LET'S LOOK, FIRST OF ALL,AT SOME FURTHER INFORMATION
  • 00:11:37.686 --> 00:11:41.123
  • ABOUT THE NEW JERUSALEM.
  • 00:11:41.157 --> 00:11:42.992
  • REMEMBER THERE WAS NO CHAPTERBREAK IN THE ORIGINAL TEXT.
  • 00:11:43.025 --> 00:11:46.829
  • IT WAS ALL ONE CONTINUOUS TEXT.
  • 00:11:46.862 --> 00:11:49.765
  • WE'VE ALREADY SEENTHAT THE CENTERPIECE
  • 00:11:49.799 --> 00:11:51.801
  • OF THE NEW HEAVEN AND NEW EARTH
  • 00:11:51.834 --> 00:11:53.402
  • WILL BE THE CAPITALCITY, THE NEW JERUSALEM.
  • 00:11:53.435 --> 00:11:56.472
  • RIGHT NOW THAT CITY IS BEINGBUILT IN WHAT WE CALL HEAVEN.
  • 00:11:56.505 --> 00:12:00.543
  • JESUS SAID, I'M PREPARINGA PLACE FOR YOU.
  • 00:12:00.576 --> 00:12:04.747
  • I CALL IT THE ULTIMATE ANDPREFAB HOUSING, THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:12:04.780 --> 00:12:08.918
  • BECAUSE ALTHOUGH IT'S BEINGCONSTRUCTED IN HOUSING,
  • 00:12:08.951 --> 00:12:11.453
  • JOHN SAID IN REVELATION 21:1,
  • 00:12:11.487 --> 00:12:13.722
  • I SAW THE NEW HEAVENAND THE NEW EARTH
  • 00:12:13.756 --> 00:12:16.025
  • AND THE NEW JERUSALEM COMINGDOWN OUT OF HEAVEN TO EARTH.
  • 00:12:16.058 --> 00:12:20.162
  • GOD'S BUILDING IT IN HEAVEN,
  • 00:12:20.196 --> 00:12:22.031
  • BUT IT'S A LITERAL CITYTHAT WILL BE HERE ON EARTH
  • 00:12:22.064 --> 00:12:24.934
  • AND IT WILL BE OURPRIMARY, NOT EXCLUSIVE,
  • 00:12:24.967 --> 00:12:27.369
  • BUT PRIMARY DWELLING PLACE.
  • 00:12:27.403 --> 00:12:29.238
  • ONE THING WE SAW ABOUT ITWAS THE TREMENDOUS SIZE
  • 00:12:29.271 --> 00:12:32.274
  • OF THIS NEW CITY.
  • 00:12:32.308 --> 00:12:33.876
  • JOHN SAID IT MEASURED1.500 MILES BY 1.500 MILES,
  • 00:12:33.909 --> 00:12:38.781
  • LENGTH AND WIDTH AND1.500 MILES HIGH.
  • 00:12:38.814 --> 00:12:42.785
  • IT'S A CUBE.
  • 00:12:42.818 --> 00:12:44.253
  • IT'S OVER 2 MILLION SQUAREFEET, JUST ON ONE LEVEL OF IT.
  • 00:12:44.286 --> 00:12:48.257
  • IT'S A HUMONGOUS CITY ANDTHERE'S NOT JUST ONE LEVEL,
  • 00:12:48.290 --> 00:12:51.760
  • BUT IT GOES 1500MILES IN THE SKY.
  • 00:12:51.794 --> 00:12:54.363
  • THAT MEANS OVER 600.000STORIES OF A SKYSCRAPER
  • 00:12:54.396 --> 00:12:58.634
  • IS THIS HUMONGOUS CITY,THE NEW JERUSALEM.
  • 00:12:58.667 --> 00:13:02.504
  • AND THEN WHEN WE GET TOCHAPTER 22:1,
  • 00:13:02.538 --> 00:13:05.140
  • THERE'S ANOTHER ASPECTOF THE NEW JERUSALEM.
  • 00:13:05.174 --> 00:13:07.743
  • THERE'S A RIVER IN IT.
  • 00:13:07.776 --> 00:13:09.178
  • THERE'S NO SEA BUTTHERE IS A RIVER.
  • 00:13:09.211 --> 00:13:11.714
  • LOOK AT VERSE 1.
  • 00:13:11.747 --> 00:13:13.415
  • THEN THE ANGEL SHOWED ME ARIVER OF THE WATER OF LIFE,
  • 00:13:13.449 --> 00:13:16.986
  • CLEAR AS CRYSTAL COMING DOWN
  • 00:13:17.019 --> 00:13:18.854
  • FROM THE THRONE OFGOD AND OF THE LAMB.
  • 00:13:18.888 --> 00:13:22.391
  • WE'LL SEE IN VERSE 2THAT THIS STREAM FLOWS
  • 00:13:22.424 --> 00:13:25.060
  • THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE CITY,
  • 00:13:25.094 --> 00:13:26.495
  • IT DISSECTS THE MAIN STREETOF THE NEW JERUSALEM.
  • 00:13:26.528 --> 00:13:31.033
  • REMEMBER IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN,
  • 00:13:31.066 --> 00:13:32.401
  • THERE WAS A RIVER THATWATERED THE GARDEN.
  • 00:13:32.434 --> 00:13:34.803
  • IT HAD FOUR BRANCHES TO IT.
  • 00:13:34.837 --> 00:13:36.472
  • THERE'LL BE A RIVER INTHIS NEW CITY AS WELL.
  • 00:13:36.505 --> 00:13:39.074
  • I'M GLAD THERE'SGOING TO BE WATER.
  • 00:13:39.108 --> 00:13:40.576
  • THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUTWATER THAT IS REFRESHING.
  • 00:13:40.609 --> 00:13:45.381
  • IT SYMBOLIZES ETERNALLIFE IN THE BIBLE,
  • 00:13:45.414 --> 00:13:47.983
  • BUT IT'S A PLACE OF REFRESHMENT.
  • 00:13:48.017 --> 00:13:50.753
  • I MEAN, ISN'T THATTRUE RIGHT NOW
  • 00:13:50.786 --> 00:13:52.321
  • IN THE DOG DAYS OFSUMMER HERE IN TEXAS,
  • 00:13:52.354 --> 00:13:55.291
  • WE TRY TO GET TO THE WATERAS QUICKLY AS WE CAN,
  • 00:13:55.324 --> 00:13:57.893
  • WHETHER IT'S GOING TO THE COAST
  • 00:13:57.927 --> 00:13:59.862
  • OR NEW BRAUNFELS ORHURRICANE HARBOR,
  • 00:13:59.895 --> 00:14:02.531
  • WE WANT TO GET CLOSE TOWHERE THE WATER IS.
  • 00:14:02.564 --> 00:14:04.833
  • IT BRINGS RELIEF.
  • 00:14:04.867 --> 00:14:06.602
  • WELL, IT'S THAT SAMEWAY IN THE NEW HEAVEN
  • 00:14:06.635 --> 00:14:09.238
  • AND THE NEW EARTH.
  • 00:14:09.271 --> 00:14:10.706
  • AND THEN IN VERSE 2, THERE'SSOMETHING ELSE JOHN SEES,
  • 00:14:10.739 --> 00:14:13.375
  • AND THAT IS A TREE,THE TREE OF LIFE.
  • 00:14:13.409 --> 00:14:16.645
  • LOOK AT VERSE 2, INTHE MIDDLE OF ITS STREET,
  • 00:14:16.679 --> 00:14:19.181
  • ON EITHER SIDE OF THERIVER WAS THE TREE OF LIFE.
  • 00:14:19.214 --> 00:14:22.785
  • WE SAW THAT TREE OF LIFEIN THE BOOK OF GENESIS.
  • 00:14:22.818 --> 00:14:26.422
  • REMEMBER AFTER ADAM AND EVESINNED, GOD OUT OF HIS MERCY,
  • 00:14:26.455 --> 00:14:29.825
  • KEPT ADAM AND EVE FROMEATING OF THAT TREE.
  • 00:14:29.858 --> 00:14:32.261
  • HAD THEY EATEN OF THE TREEIN THEIR FALLEN STATE,
  • 00:14:32.294 --> 00:14:34.930
  • THEY WOULD HAVE BEENSEPARATED FROM GOD FOREVER.
  • 00:14:34.964 --> 00:14:38.534
  • BUT WE SEE THIS TREE AGAIN.
  • 00:14:38.567 --> 00:14:40.369
  • AND APPARENTLY IT ISSO LARGE THAT IT SPANS
  • 00:14:40.402 --> 00:14:43.505
  • BOTH SIDES OF THE STREETWITH THE RIVER IN BETWEEN IT
  • 00:14:43.539 --> 00:14:47.443
  • AND IT BEARS 12 KINDS OF FRUIT,YIELDING FRUIT EVERY MONTH,
  • 00:14:47.476 --> 00:14:51.747
  • KIND OF THE FRUIT OFA MONTH CLUB, I GUESS.
  • 00:14:51.780 --> 00:14:53.749
  • BUT THERE'S A DIFFERENTFRUIT EVERY MONTH
  • 00:14:53.782 --> 00:14:56.318
  • THAT THIS TREE BEARS.
  • 00:14:56.352 --> 00:14:58.320
  • SO, WHY IS THAT?
  • 00:14:58.354 --> 00:14:59.822
  • ARE WE TO TAKE THAT LITERALLY.
  • 00:14:59.855 --> 00:15:01.190
  • REMEMBER THIS, WHEN THEPLAIN SENSE MAKES GOOD SENSE,
  • 00:15:01.223 --> 00:15:04.593
  • SEEK NO OTHER SENSE.
  • 00:15:04.626 --> 00:15:06.328
  • I TAKE THE BIBLE LITERALLY,UNLESS THERE'S A REASON NOT TO.
  • 00:15:06.362 --> 00:15:09.031
  • I THINK THIS IS REAL FRUIT.
  • 00:15:09.064 --> 00:15:10.899
  • THE BIBLE SAYSWE'RE GOING TO EAT
  • 00:15:10.933 --> 00:15:12.935
  • IN THE NEW HEAVEN, IN THENEW EARTH, IN OUR NEW BODIES.
  • 00:15:12.968 --> 00:15:16.271
  • REMEMBER THE ANGELS,THEY ATE FOOD
  • 00:15:16.305 --> 00:15:18.273
  • WHEN THEY CAME TO ABRAHAMIN THE BOOK OF GENESIS.
  • 00:15:18.307 --> 00:15:22.344
  • REMEMBER JESUS AND HISNEW RESURRECTED BODY
  • 00:15:22.378 --> 00:15:25.447
  • FOR THE 40 DAYS HEWAS HERE ON EARTH,
  • 00:15:25.481 --> 00:15:27.116
  • ATE WITH HIS DISCIPLES.
  • 00:15:27.149 --> 00:15:28.751
  • THE BIBLE SAYSWE'RE GOING TO EAT
  • 00:15:28.784 --> 00:15:30.519
  • AT THE WEDDINGFEAST OF THE LAMB.
  • 00:15:30.552 --> 00:15:32.421
  • THIS IS FRUIT THAT'S PROVIDED.
  • 00:15:32.454 --> 00:15:34.123
  • WHY?
  • 00:15:34.156 --> 00:15:35.357
  • IT SAYS, AND THELEAVES OF THE TREE
  • 00:15:35.391 --> 00:15:36.859
  • WERE FOR THE HEALINGOF THE NATIONS.
  • 00:15:36.892 --> 00:15:40.062
  • IN FACT, WHY DO WE NEED HEALING
  • 00:15:40.095 --> 00:15:41.797
  • IF THERE'S NO MORESICKNESS AND NO MORE SIN?
  • 00:15:41.830 --> 00:15:45.200
  • THAT WORD HEALING COMESFROM THE GREEK WORD
  • 00:15:45.234 --> 00:15:47.770
  • THAT WE GET THERAPYFROM OR THERAPEUTIC.
  • 00:15:47.803 --> 00:15:51.073
  • THIS ISN'T HEALING FROM DISEASE,
  • 00:15:51.106 --> 00:15:53.475
  • IT MEANS IT'S HEALTHGIVING OR LIFE GIVING.
  • 00:15:53.509 --> 00:15:56.812
  • IT'S MAINLY FOR OUR ENJOYMENT.
  • 00:15:56.845 --> 00:15:59.415
  • AND THAT'S CLEAR IN VERSE 3,THERE'S NO LONGER ANY CURSE
  • 00:15:59.448 --> 00:16:03.252
  • AND THE THRONE OF GOD ANDTHE LAMB WILL BE IN IT.
  • 00:16:03.285 --> 00:16:06.221
  • AND HIS BOND SERVANTS, THATIS YOU AND I, WILL SERVE HIM.
  • 00:16:06.255 --> 00:16:12.428
  • WHAT DO YOU MEAN,WE WILL SERVE GOD?
  • 00:16:12.461 --> 00:16:14.163
  • DON'T EVER THINKHEAVEN'S GOING TO BE
  • 00:16:14.196 --> 00:16:16.365
  • YOU BEING CONFINED TOSOME CLOUD PLUCKING A HARP
  • 00:16:16.398 --> 00:16:20.269
  • THE REST OF YOUR EXISTENCE.
  • 00:16:20.302 --> 00:16:22.271
  • NO, WE'RE GOING TO DOTHINGS TO SERVE GOD.
  • 00:16:22.304 --> 00:16:25.874
  • GOD PLANTED ADAM AND EVEIN THE EDEN AND SAID,
  • 00:16:25.908 --> 00:16:28.644
  • I WANT YOU TO KEEP THEGARDEN AND CULTIVATE IT.
  • 00:16:28.677 --> 00:16:30.813
  • HE HAD AN ASSIGNMENT FOR THEM.
  • 00:16:30.846 --> 00:16:32.981
  • THERE'S WORK THAT WEWILL DO IN THE NEW HEAVEN
  • 00:16:33.015 --> 00:16:35.250
  • AND THE NEW EARTH AS WELL.
  • 00:16:35.284 --> 00:16:37.186
  • AND THEN VERSE 4,THEY WILL SEE GOD'S FACE
  • 00:16:37.219 --> 00:16:41.924
  • AND HIS NAME WILL BEON THEIR FOREHEADS
  • 00:16:41.957 --> 00:16:44.660
  • AND THERE WILL NOLONGER BE ANY NIGHT.
  • 00:16:44.693 --> 00:16:46.895
  • THEY WILL HAVE NO NEEDOF THE LIGHT OF A LAMP
  • 00:16:46.929 --> 00:16:49.331
  • NOR THE LIGHT OF THE SUN
  • 00:16:49.364 --> 00:16:50.899
  • BECAUSE THE LORD GODWILL ILLUMINE THEM
  • 00:16:50.933 --> 00:16:53.502
  • AND THEY WILL REIGNFOREVER AND EVER.
  • 00:16:53.535 --> 00:16:57.773
  • WE SHALL SEE GOD'S FACE.
  • 00:16:57.806 --> 00:17:00.275
  • REMEMBER, NOBODY HASEVER SEEN GOD'S FACE
  • 00:17:00.309 --> 00:17:02.578
  • AND LIVED TO TELL ABOUTIT, THE BIBLE SAYS.
  • 00:17:02.611 --> 00:17:05.581
  • REMEMBER IN EXODUS 32 WHEN MOSESWAS DISCOURAGED
  • 00:17:05.614 --> 00:17:10.285
  • OVER THE REBELLIONOF THE ISRAELITES
  • 00:17:10.319 --> 00:17:12.221
  • AND HE PLED WITH GOD,GOD, LET ME SEE YOUR FACE.
  • 00:17:12.254 --> 00:17:16.058
  • GOD EXPLAINED HE COULDN'TSEE GOD'S FACE AND LIVE.
  • 00:17:16.091 --> 00:17:19.528
  • BUT REMEMBER GOD TOOK MOSES
  • 00:17:19.561 --> 00:17:21.530
  • AND PLACED HIM INA HIDING PLACE,
  • 00:17:21.563 --> 00:17:23.765
  • THE CLEFT OF THE ROCK AND SAID,
  • 00:17:23.799 --> 00:17:25.868
  • I'LL ALLOW MY GLORYTO PASS BY YOU.
  • 00:17:25.901 --> 00:17:28.303
  • AND HE HID MOSES FACEWHERE HE COULDN'T SEE
  • 00:17:28.337 --> 00:17:31.707
  • THE FRONT OF GOD,
  • 00:17:31.740 --> 00:17:33.208
  • BUT MOSES WAS ABLE TO SEETHE TRAILING EDGE OF GOD
  • 00:17:33.242 --> 00:17:36.879
  • AS HE PASSED BY.
  • 00:17:36.912 --> 00:17:38.213
  • AND THAT EXPERIENCECAUSED MOSES' FACE
  • 00:17:38.247 --> 00:17:42.518
  • TO SHINE WITH LIGHT, WITHTHE RADIANCE OF GOD'S LIGHT.
  • 00:17:42.551 --> 00:17:46.088
  • FINALLY IN HEAVEN, WEWILL SEE THE FACE OF GOD.
  • 00:17:46.121 --> 00:17:50.626
  • NOW, AFTER THAT FURTHER WORDABOUT THE NEW JERUSALEM,
  • 00:17:50.659 --> 00:17:53.662
  • HE GIVES US SOMEWORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT
  • 00:17:53.695 --> 00:17:55.764
  • BEGINNING IN VERSE 6.
  • 00:17:55.797 --> 00:17:57.366
  • AND THE ANGEL SAID TO ME, THESEWORDS ARE FAITHFUL AND TRUE.
  • 00:17:57.399 --> 00:18:00.536
  • AND THE LORD, THE GOD OFTHE SPIRITS OF THE PROPHETS,
  • 00:18:00.569 --> 00:18:03.105
  • SENT HIS ANGEL TOSHOW HIS BOND SERVANTS
  • 00:18:03.138 --> 00:18:05.307
  • THE THINGS WHICHMUST SOON TAKE PLACE.
  • 00:18:05.340 --> 00:18:11.480
  • WE SAW THIS SAMEWORD IN VERSE 1,
  • 00:18:11.513 --> 00:18:13.182
  • THE THINGS WHICHSOON MUST TAKE PLACE.
  • 00:18:13.215 --> 00:18:16.818
  • OR QUICKLY, I COMEQUICKLY, LORD.
  • 00:18:16.852 --> 00:18:19.688
  • IT'S THE SAME WORD,SOON, QUICKLY.
  • 00:18:19.721 --> 00:18:23.225
  • IT'S THE WORD (SPEAKS INFOREIGN LANGUAGE) IN GREEK.
  • 00:18:23.258 --> 00:18:27.329
  • IT'S THE WORD WEGET TACHOMETER FOR.
  • 00:18:27.362 --> 00:18:29.831
  • HAVE YOU EVER SEEN ATACHOMETER IN YOUR CAR
  • 00:18:29.865 --> 00:18:31.800
  • AND YOU WONDERED WHAT IT WAS?
  • 00:18:31.833 --> 00:18:33.535
  • IT MEASURES THE SPEED OF THEREVOLUTIONS IN YOUR ENGINE.
  • 00:18:33.569 --> 00:18:38.240
  • THAT'S WHAT IT SAYS HERE,THE LORD IS COMING SPEEDILY.
  • 00:18:38.273 --> 00:18:42.945
  • WHAT DOES THAT MEAN,TO COME SPEEDILY?
  • 00:18:42.978 --> 00:18:45.013
  • IT MEANS SIMPLY THIS,
  • 00:18:45.047 --> 00:18:47.015
  • ONCE THE EVENTS OF THEEND TIMES BEGIN TO UNFOLD,
  • 00:18:47.049 --> 00:18:51.320
  • THEY WILL UNFOLDVERY, VERY QUICKLY.
  • 00:18:51.353 --> 00:18:54.456
  • I LIKE TO USE THE ANALOGYOF A LONG LINE OF DOMINOES.
  • 00:18:54.489 --> 00:18:58.393
  • REMEMBER AS A KIDSETTING UP DOMINOES
  • 00:18:58.427 --> 00:19:01.163
  • ONE RIGHT AFTER THE OTHER,
  • 00:19:01.196 --> 00:19:03.131
  • AND YOU WOULD TAKETHAT FIRST DOMINO
  • 00:19:03.165 --> 00:19:04.933
  • AND YOU WOULD TIP IT OVER
  • 00:19:04.967 --> 00:19:06.535
  • AND IT WOULD CAUSEA CHAIN REACTION.
  • 00:19:06.568 --> 00:19:08.337
  • ONCE YOU HAD TIPPEDTHAT FIRST DOMINO OVER,
  • 00:19:08.370 --> 00:19:11.240
  • THE REST WAS INEVITABLE.
  • 00:19:11.273 --> 00:19:13.108
  • AND IT'S THE SAME HERE.
  • 00:19:13.141 --> 00:19:14.576
  • ONCE THAT FIRST EVENT,THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH,
  • 00:19:14.610 --> 00:19:16.912
  • TAKES PLACE, IT COULDHAPPEN AT ANY TIME,
  • 00:19:16.945 --> 00:19:18.647
  • IT COULD HAPPENDURING THE SERVICE.
  • 00:19:18.680 --> 00:19:20.115
  • WHEN IT HAPPENS, EVERYTHINGWILL HAPPEN VERY, VERY QUICKLY.
  • 00:19:20.148 --> 00:19:24.720
  • LOOK AT VERSE 7, AND BEHOLD,
  • 00:19:24.753 --> 00:19:26.888
  • I JESUS CHRIST AMCOMING QUICKLY.
  • 00:19:26.922 --> 00:19:30.225
  • BLESSED IS HE WHOHEEDS THE WORDS

  • OF THE PROPHECY OF THIS BOOK.
  • 00:19:33.729 --> 00:19:36.298
  • THAT'S THE SAME BLESSING WEFIND IN CHAPTER 1:3,

  • BLESSED IT IS EVERYONE WHO READS
  • 00:19:39.534 --> 00:19:41.837
  • AND HEEDS THETHINGS IN THIS BOOK.
  • 00:19:41.870 --> 00:19:43.905
  • THE BOOK OF THE REVELATIONIS THE ONLY BOOK OF THE BIBLE
  • 00:19:43.939 --> 00:19:47.276
  • THAT HAS A SPECIALBLESSING ATTACHED
  • 00:19:47.309 --> 00:19:49.544
  • TO THOSE WHO READIT AND OBEY IT.
  • 00:19:49.578 --> 00:19:53.181
  • ISN'T IT STRANGEHOW MANY CHURCHES
  • 00:19:53.215 --> 00:19:54.950
  • NEVER OPEN THEBOOK OF REVELATION?
  • 00:19:54.983 --> 00:19:57.152
  • THE PASTOR NEVER SAYSA WORD ABOUT PROPHECY.
  • 00:19:57.185 --> 00:19:59.655
  • PROPHECY IS THE THEMEOF THE ENTIRE BIBLE,
  • 00:19:59.688 --> 00:20:03.292
  • THAT JESUS IS COMING BACK AGAIN.
  • 00:20:03.325 --> 00:20:06.762
  • BUT WOULD YOU ALSONOTICE THAT THIS BLESSING
  • 00:20:06.795 --> 00:20:10.899

  • THEIR BIBLE PROPHECYCHART CORRECTLY.
  • 00:20:15.637 --> 00:20:19.241
  • THAT'S NOT WHO THEBLESSING IS TO.
  • 00:20:19.274 --> 00:20:21.710
  • DID YOU KNOW, YOU GETABSOLUTELY NO CREDIT FROM GOD
  • 00:20:21.743 --> 00:20:25.847
  • IF YOU GET TO HEAVEN WITH AHEAD FULL OF CORRECT THEOLOGY?
  • 00:20:25.881 --> 00:20:29.751
  • WHEN YOU GET TO HEAVEN,GOD'S NOT GOING TO GIVE YOU
  • 00:20:29.785 --> 00:20:31.653
  • A THEOLOGICAL EXAM TO SEE IFYOU KNOW EVERYTHING CORRECTLY.
  • 00:20:31.687 --> 00:20:37.559
  • YOU GET NO CREDIT FOR KNOWLEDGE.
  • 00:20:37.592 --> 00:20:39.461
  • NOW DON'T MISUNDERSTAND.
  • 00:20:39.494 --> 00:20:41.830
  • THEOLOGY IS VERY IMPORTANT,THE STUDY OF GOD.
  • 00:20:41.863 --> 00:20:46.368
  • BECAUSE WHAT WE BELIEVEDETERMINES HOW WE BEHAVE.
  • 00:20:46.401 --> 00:20:50.806
  • BUT GOD DID NOT GIVE USTHE BOOK OF REVELATION
  • 00:20:50.839 --> 00:20:53.642
  • OR ANY OF THE BIBLE TO INCREASEOUR LEVEL OF KNOWLEDGE,
  • 00:20:53.675 --> 00:20:57.312
  • BUT TO INCREASE OUR LEVELOF OBEDIENCE TO GOD.
  • 00:20:57.346 --> 00:21:02.651
  • IT'S BLESSED IS EVERYBODYWHO READS AND HEEDS,
  • 00:21:02.684 --> 00:21:05.754
  • THAT IS OBEYS THEPROPHECY OF THIS BOOK,
  • 00:21:05.787 --> 00:21:09.424
  • THAT'S WHO RECEIVESTHE BLESSING.
  • 00:21:09.458 --> 00:21:12.561
  • JOHN WAS SO OVERWHELMED BY WHATHE SAW, LOOK AT VERSE 8.
  • 00:21:12.594 --> 00:21:16.064
  • WHEN I SAW AND HEARD,I FELL DOWN TO WORSHIP
  • 00:21:16.098 --> 00:21:18.433
  • AT THE FEET OF THE ANGELWHO SHOWED ME THESE THINGS.
  • 00:21:18.467 --> 00:21:20.936
  • THE ANGEL SAID, DON'T DO THAT.
  • 00:21:20.969 --> 00:21:22.804
  • DON'T WORSHIP ME, I'M JUSTA SERVANT LIKE YOU ARE.
  • 00:21:22.838 --> 00:21:25.340
  • WORSHIP GOD INSTEAD.
  • 00:21:25.374 --> 00:21:26.875
  • AND THEN VERSE 10, ANDTHE ANGEL SAID TO ME,
  • 00:21:26.908 --> 00:21:29.544
  • DO NOT SEAL UP THE WORDS OFTHE PROPHECY OF THIS BOOK.
  • 00:21:29.578 --> 00:21:33.915
  • THIS BOOK IS NOT TOREMAIN A MYSTERY UNREAD
  • 00:21:33.949 --> 00:21:36.418
  • OR UNSTUDIED BY PEOPLE,DON'T SEAL IT UP
  • 00:21:36.451 --> 00:21:39.087
  • FOR THE TIME IS NEAR.
  • 00:21:39.121 --> 00:21:43.925
  • NOW THAT REALLY CONFUSES PEOPLE.
  • 00:21:43.959 --> 00:21:46.528
  • JESUS IS SAYING THE TIMEFOR HIS COMING IS NEAR,
  • 00:21:46.561 --> 00:21:50.298
  • IT'S BEEN 2000 YEARS SINCEHE'S PROMISED TO COME.
  • 00:21:50.332 --> 00:21:53.301
  • SURELY THIS IS A MISTAKETO SAY THE TIME IS NEAR.
  • 00:21:53.335 --> 00:21:57.906
  • THAT WORD TIME IN GREEK ISA VERY INTERESTING WORD.
  • 00:21:57.939 --> 00:22:01.943
  • IN FACT, THERE ARE TWO WORDSFOR TIME IN THE GREEK LANGUAGE.
  • 00:22:01.977 --> 00:22:05.981
  • ONE WORD IS THE WORD CHRONOS,C-H-R-O-N-O-S, CHRONOS.
  • 00:22:06.014 --> 00:22:12.154
  • THAT'S WHAT WE CALLCLOCK TIME, CLOCK TIME,
  • 00:22:12.187 --> 00:22:15.857
  • THE TIME, THE TIME ON THE CLOCK.
  • 00:22:15.891 --> 00:22:18.593
  • IF I WERE TO SAY TO YOU, THEEND OF MY SERMON IS NEAR.
  • 00:22:18.627 --> 00:22:24.966
  • DON'T GET YOUR HOPES UP,THIS IS JUST AN ILLUSTRATION.
  • 00:22:25.000 --> 00:22:26.468
  • BUT IF I WERE TO SAY TO YOU,THE END OF MY SERMON IS NEAR,
  • 00:22:26.501 --> 00:22:30.405
  • THE TIME OF THE ENDINGOF MY SERMON IS NEAR,
  • 00:22:30.439 --> 00:22:33.175
  • YOU WOULD THINK IMEANT CLOCK TIME.
  • 00:22:33.208 --> 00:22:36.144
  • IT'S SO MOST 12 O'CLOCKTHEREFORE HE'S ALMOST FINISHED.
  • 00:22:36.178 --> 00:22:39.815
  • THAT'S CHRONOS.
  • 00:22:39.848 --> 00:22:41.183
  • BUT THAT'S NOT THEWORD USED HERE.
  • 00:22:41.216 --> 00:22:42.784
  • HE'S NOT TALKINGABOUT CLOCK TIME.
  • 00:22:42.818 --> 00:22:44.719
  • HE USES THE WORD KAIROS,KAIROS, K-A-I-R-O-S.
  • 00:22:44.753 --> 00:22:51.059
  • THAT REFERS TO A SEASONOF TIME OR AN AGE.
  • 00:22:51.092 --> 00:22:55.864
