Pastor Steven Anderson The Book of Revelation Chapter 8 of 22

Now in Revelation chapter 8, we're enteringa new phase in the book of Revelation, because we are getting into God pouring out his wrath,and his judgment upon the unbelieving world. Look at verse number 1, the Bible reads quot;Andwhen he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of halfan hour. And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seventrumpets.quot; Now it always boggles my mind how anyone can read the book of Revelation, andread these two verses, and walk away not understanding that the trumpets come after the seals. Imean, it seems pretty simple doesn't ité Because the opening of the seventh seal is characterisedby these seven angels being given seven trumpets.

So it makes absolutely no sense to say thatthe trumpets come before the seals. However, those who believe in a pretribulation rapture,that is exactly what they believe, believe it or not. When you talk to them, they willusually tell you that the sixth seal judgment is actually after the trumpets. And it justmakes absolutely no sense. Now, let me just prove this to you quickly, because I thinkthis is a really important point to make, and I'm going to explain to you why thosewho are pretrib, resist the clear and obvious truth that the trumpets follow the seven seals.And I am going to prove that a couple of different ways in a moment. But not only that, mostpeople who call themselves, quot;posttribquot;, they

call this the quot;classic historical posttribpositionquot;. They actually believe that the rapture takes place not only after what theBible calls the tribulation, but also after God pours out His wrath. They believe thatwe'll be here during God's outpouring of wrath on this earth. I don't call that positionquot;posttribquot;, I call what I believe quot;posttribulationquot;. I call what they believe quot;postwrathquot;, okayéBut honestly, that view is also based on the same mistake of believing that the trumpetsdo not follow the seals. And so by proving that the trumpets come after the seals, Iam proving that the only way that you can legitimately interpret the book of Revelation,and end times Bible prophecy, is a posttribulational,

prewrath rapture. It's the only thing thatmakes sense in light of that. Because anyone can look at this and see. Well, let's justget into it. In Revelation chapter 8, verse number 2 it says quot;And I saw the seven angelswhich stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.quot; Then if you jump down toverse 6 it says quot;And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselvesto sound.quot; Verse 7. quot;The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled withblood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up,and all green grass was burnt up.quot; And of course we are going to get into all thosejudgments and what they are. But notice, right

away, when the trumpets begin to be blown,the first thing God tells us is that fire is raining down, and that all the green grassin the earth is burned up, and that a third of the trees are burned up. That's going tobe important. Let's back up to chapter 6. And I'm going to explain to you why this isso important. You go to Revelation 6, I'm going to read to you from Matthew 24. AndI'm going to explain to you why those who believe in a pretrib rapture MUST try tosmuggle in the trumpets before the seals, or during the seals, and mix those two judgments.Let me explain to you why. Go to Revelation 6, I'll read for you the familiar verses fromMatthew 24, beginning in verse 29. quot; Immediately

after the tribulation of those days shallthe sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall fromheaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shakenquot;. Now that verse makes it VERY clearthat the sun and moon being darkened, and the stars falling comes AFTER the tribulation,doesn't ité Okay, well look down at your Bible there in Revelation chapter 6, verse 12. TheBible reads quot;And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a greatearthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; Andthe stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, whenshe is shaken of a mighty wind.quot; So right

EndTime Prophecy 101 Outline of Revelation

Gary Petty Well, good evening, everyone.I'm glad all of you could make it here this evening. We were discussing what we wouldlike to do for our next series of Bible studies, and the subject came up of prophecy. And sowe discussed, well, what type of prophecy or what prophecies do we want to cover. Andwe came up with the idea, we just called it EndTime Prophecy 101. We wanted to, overthe next five studies, just give an outlines of what the endtime prophecies talk about.We could have gone through messianic prophecies, we could. there's all kinds of prophecieswe could have gone through. But we want to go through the basics. And we want to givesome details, some details, we won't have

time to give. Other times, we're going tobe covering material that we don't have all the answers to. So before we get started, why don't we alljust rise and bow our heads. Father in heaven, we thank you so very, very much for the opportunityto be here tonight. We ask You to open our minds to Your Word, and to Your truth, andto be humbled by it, Father, that You give us this information, that we, in our mindsguided by Your Spirit, understand part of it. As Paul said, “We see through a glassdarkly,� but we can understand what You give us. So we ask for Your direct help tonight.You will inspire us to learn more about what

You tell us about the future, so we cannotlive in fear, but we can be prepared, Father, and know that You will be with us. So we thankYou, we praise You, and we ask all things in Jesus's name. Amen. So in our theme of EndTime Prophecy 101,tonight, what we're going to try to do in an hour is tell you everything you alwayswanted to know about the Book of Revelation. Now what I want to do is just give an overviewof the Book of Revelation. Now, we're going to go through a lot of material, and we'regoing to be through it, some of it very quickly. I'm just going to be touching on certain things.I mean, obviously, we can spend an hour on

each chapter of the Book of Revelation andstill not cover everything. We're not going to speculate a lot. When we're speculatingsome, I'll tell you when we're speculating. We're just going to try to give you an overviewof what the Book of Revelation shows us about endtime events. One of the reasons, too, we decided to dothis was because of the questions that we get. Our people write in to Beyond Today,or they write in to the UCG website, and a lot of questions we get lately, because peoplesee the world unraveling, is “Is the tribulation startingé Is the tribulation about to beginéHow will we know when it beginsé Is President

Obama the Beastéâ€� We get those kind of thingsall the time. So I think we can go through tonight and at least figure out that the tribulationisn't going to start tonight. We know that much. There's some events that have to happenbefore, and I think we can come to a pretty, pretty clear understanding that Mr. Obamais not the Beast. Okayé There's something greater here that God is doing. And thereis an evil that is on the horizon, and is probably going to happen in our lifetime. Let's start with the first slide we're goingto show here is Revelation 1:3. quot;Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the wordsof this prophecy, and keep those things which

are written in it, for the time is near.quot;So we know that this book was written specifically to help Christians throughout history, butalso specifically to help those at the end of the age when the time was near, so theycould see what was going on. Now, not to always know and predict exactlywhat's going to happen next, but to know what's happening as it happens. Sometimes we tryto speculate on specific prophecies so much. If you've been in the Church long enough,you've been through many times where there was some specific prophecy with the idea ofhow it would be fulfilled. Those are fun things to do and we should be watching prophecy,but we have to be very, very careful. Now
