17 Revelation Chapter Six

18 Scroll a book sealed along the outside with seven (7) seals. Chapter Six (6) Sermon Notes and significant thoughts and ideas from the sermon notes on this chapter The Scroll contains two (2) things in particular... (1) The establishment of the Kingdom of God and the gathering of his saints for eternity. (2) The judgment of God upon the evil demonic powers which have oppressed his people - God s wrath against evil will be poured out upon the world. 1st Century 2nd Coming of Christ End of History The Four Horsemen 1. White Horse Militarism 2. Red Horse War 3. Black Horse Famine 4. Pale Horse Death -1-

19 Chapter Six (6) The souls under the altar who had been slain for the Word of God and their witness. Under the Altar saints pictured as those sacrificed for Christ. Matthew 24:9 You will be hated by all nations for my Name s sake. Their prayer is a prayer of vindication. (1) White robes symbol of blessedness and rest (2) Rest a little longer until the consummation of all things at Christ s return. (3) Until the number of their fellow servants and brothers should be complete the end is not immediate and more martyred Christians will follow. The end of persecution and killing is not finished. The 5 seals takes us across 2,000 years of Christian History Militarism War Famine Death Martyrdom 1st Century

20 Chapter Six (6) God s wrath will be poured out upon the nations at the end of history. Revelation 6:12-17 For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand. This is a day of both... Salvation Judgment Matthew 24:9 Acts 2:20-21 Revelation 6:12-17 II Thessalonians 1:5-12 II Thessalonians 2:3-12 The wrath of God fulfills the Old Testament prophecies of the day of the Lord. 1. Joel 2:31 2. Joel 3:15 3. Isaiah 13: Isaiah 34:4 5. Jeremiah 4: Isaiah 2:19 7. Matthew 24: Acts 2: Revelation 6:

21 Chapter Six (6) Dr. George Ladd Writes... The breaking of each of the seals does not witness the opening of part of the book, chapter by chapter as it were; all of the seals are preliminary to opening the book. The sixth seal brings us to the threshold of the opening of the book and the great events of the end. The breaking of the seventh seal makes is possible for the book to be opened and its contents disclosed. The book contains the prophecies of the end of the world; but the end is not a single event but consists of a whole complex of events. It includes the outpouring of God s wrath upon a rebellious civilization, the judgment of the Antichrist and the destruction of his hosts, as well as the resurrection of the dead and the establishment of the Kingdom of God. So we may conclude that the sixth seal brings us to the threshold of the end; and then John stands back, as it were, to tell the story of the end in greater detail. The breaking of the seventh seal opens the book and begins the story of the events of the end time; this is the substance of the remainder of the Revelation. -4-

22 Personal Application 1. For 2,000 years and until Christ returns we will experience - Militarism War Famine Death Martyrdom 4 horses and the 5th seal of Revelation 2. These 5 seals will only increase and intensify at the end of history before Christ s Second Coming. 3. Those who are put to death for Christ go immediately into his presence in heaven. 4. The day of God s wrath and vengeance upon the wicked is ultimately and absolutely coming. Revelation 6:17 For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand. 5. Jesus Christ is the sovereign Lord of history who is in absolute control of the scroll and the seven (7) seals that open the scroll. Revelation 6:1 Now I watched when the Lamb opened one of the seven seals

23 SERMON OUTLINE Scroll A book sealed along the outside edge with seven (7) seals. Revelation 6:1-17 *The Lamb opens the seals that bring disasters on the earth The 1st seal represents militarism. 2. The 2nd seal represents war. 3. The 3rd seal represents famine. 4. The 4th seal represents death. 5. The 5th seal represents martyrdom. 6. The 6th seal represents the wrath of God coming upon the earth. 7. The wrath of God fulfills the Old Testament prophecies concerning the day of the Lord.

24 Scriptures used throughout this Sermon Revelation 6:1-17 INTRODUCTION Psalm 138:16; Daniel 8:26; Zechariah 6:1-8 Point 1 Revelation 6:1-2; II Thessalonians 2 Point 2 Revelation 6:3-4; Revelation 16:12-16; 19:16; Matthew 24:7 Point 3 Revelation 6:5-6; Matthew 24:7 Point 4 Revelation 6:7-8; Matthew 24:9 Point 5 Revelation 6:9-11; II Timothy 4:6; Matthew 24:9; Matthew 24:14; Luke 18:7; Romans 12:19 Point 6 Revelation 6:12-17; Romans 11:15; 26-27; II Thessalonians 2:3-12; 6:12-17; II Thessalonians 1:5-12; Revelation 19:1-21 Point 7 Revelation 6:12-17; Joel 2:31; 3:15; Isaiah 13:10-11; 34:4; Jeremiah 4:23-28; Isaiah 2:19; Matthew 24:29-31

25 Revelation Chapter Seven

26 Chapter Seven (7) The seal of God also implies ownership. The 7th seal of God brings the 7 trumpets of God s wrath. The 4 angels hold back the 4 winds of destruction until God s people are sealed. The 144,000 represent symbolically all the saved upon the earth prior to God s wrath being poured out upon the earth. 144,000 = Both Jew/Gentile The Body of Christ The following seven (7) reasons are given for the 144,000 being all of the saved (Jew/Gentile). 1. The number 144,000 is a symbolic number of completeness. 12 X 12 X 1,000 = 144,000 The whole book of Revelation is filled with symbolic numbers. Even the new dimensions of the New Jerusalem is given with 12,000 and 144. Revelation 21:16-17 Dr. Robert Mounce writes: The number is obviously symbolic. Twelve (the number of the tribes) is both squared and multiplied by one thousand a twofold way of emphasizing completeness. -2-

27 Chapter Seven (7) Sermon Notes and significant thoughts and ideas from the sermon on this chapter Perspective A proper evaluation with proportional importance given to component parts. Revelation 7 is an interlude between the 6th and the 7th seal 6th Seal The sealing of the 144,000 The Great Multitude 7th Seal The sealing of the 144,000 answers the question of Revelation 6:17. For the great day of their wrath has come and who can stand? The 144,000 are sealed to protect them from God s wrath. Seal of God the seal of protection from God s wrath Ezekiel 9 An X was placed on all the foreheads of those who were deeply grieved over Israel s sin. It protected them from God s judgment. -1-

28 Chapter Seven (7) 2. The list of the 12 Tribes that John gives does NOT agree with the 12 Tribes listed in Genesis 49 and Ezekiel 48. Revelation 7 Genesis 49 Ezekiel 48 Judah Reuben Dan Reuben Simeon Asher Gad Levi Naphtali Asher Judah Manasseh Naphtali Zebulun Ephraim Manasseh Issachar Reuben Simeon Dan Judah Levi Gad Benjamin Issachar Asher Simeon Zebulun Naphtali Issachar Joseph Joseph Zebulun Benjamin Benjamin Gad George Ladd writes: No satisfactory explanation of this irregular list of names has been offered, unless it be this: John intends to say that the 12 Tribes of Israel are not literal Israel, but true, spiritual Israel the church. -3-

29 Chapter Seven (7) 3. The church is called the Israel of God. Romans 9:6 Not all who descended from Israel (ethnic Jews) belong to Israel (spiritual Jews). Galatians 6:16... upon the Israel of God. Galatians 3:29 And if you are Christ s then you are Abraham s offspring, heirs according to the promise. 4. The 10 Tribes of Israel in 722 B.C. disappeared after Assyria conquered them and took them into captivity. 5. The 144,000 are seen in Revelation 14:1-5 and the number is clearly symbolic of all believers. 6. The Tribe of Judah is listed first. Revelation 7:5 12,000 from the Tribe of Judah were sealed. Jesus the Savior is from the Tribe of Judah he is Normally listed 4th but he is listed first to signal the New Covenant and the church is the Israel of God. -4-

30 Chapter Seven (7) 7. We are at the end of history with God s wrath being poured out on the world and Revelation 9:4 clearly teaches only those with the seal of God on the foreheads are protected. If this seal is not placed upon all believers then some of the saved will experience God s wrath. But Scripture is clear that this can not happen. The Bible clearly teaches that God will protect His people from his wrath. Romans 5:9; I Thessalonians 1:9-10 Examples: Noah and the flood Lot and Sodom/Gomorrah Israel and the 10 plaques Israel and the Red Sea The great multitude represent the 144,000 who are saved by Christ s blood but are now seen in Heaven. (1). They are a great multitude that no one can number - every nation, tribe, people and language. (2). God s promise to Abraham was that his descendants (spiritual believers) would be as numerous as the stars in the sky, sand on the seashore and the dust of the earth (Genesis 15:5; 22:17; 28:14). -5-

31 Chapter Seven (7) (3). They were before the throne of God = Heaven (4). They were clothed in white robes with palm branches in their hands. This pictures victory, celebration and worship. (5). They were crying out that salvation belongs to God - God alone saves sinners. (6). Their robes were washed and made white in the blood of the Lamb. Hebrews 9:22 Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. (7). The great multitude in heaven. Serve God day and night. Are sheltered by God s presence. Never hunger nor thirst again. The sun will not strike them or the scorching heat. The Lamb will be their Shepherd. He will guide them to springs of living water. God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. -6-

32 Personal Application 1. Every Christian can have perfect peace that God s wrath will never strike them. 2. God will shield, protect and seal believers from his wrath now and at the end of history. 3. All the redeemed can celebrate their salvation that has been accomplished through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. 4. Every believer in Jesus Christ can have absolute confidence that God will bring us through whatever tribulation in life we face. 5. Every believer can know for certain that our ultimate destination is heaven where we will live in complete bliss and joy forever and ever. -7-

33 SERMON OUTLINE Perspective A proper evaluation with proportional importance given to the component parts. Revelation 7:1-17 *John sees the same group of believers from two different perspectives The 144,000 are sealed by an angel for protection from God s wrath that is coming upon the earth. 2. The 144,000 represent symbolically all the saved upon the earth prior to God s wrath being poured out upon the earth. 3. The Bible clearly teaches that God will protect his people from his wrath. 4. The great multitude represent all who have been saved by the blood of Christ. 5. The great multitude represent the sealed 144,000 who are now in heaven.
