1 The Great Tribulation Period 1. The Word of God tells us of a horrible tribulation period which shall come upon the earth, which shall last for seven years. There are many different beliefs concerning this horrible time of tribulation, so all that we can do is to attempt to explain the details of this dreadful time as we are taught from God s Word. There are certainly many factors and truths which shall come to pass during this terrible seven year period, and I am sure that I will not be able to cover nearly every one of them in detail. But I will attempt to explain as many of the main factors of this horrible time as I possibly can, as God helps me to go through the scriptures which tell of this Great Tribulation Period. First of all, we are taught in the Word of God, that the Church of Jesus Christ will be raptured or taken up into Heaven before the beginning of the Great Tribulation Period. We believe this because of what Rev. 3:10 tells us: Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. This is Jesus speaking to his Church; and also in this scripture, the Great Tribulation Period is referred to as the hour of temptation. In other places in the Word of God, The Great Tribulation Period is referred to in the New Testament as the day of the Lord, the wrath of God, and the wrath of the Lamb. And back in the Old Testament it is referred to as the time of Jacob s trouble. Many believe that the rapture of the Church will not take place until the middle, or at the end of the Great Tribulation Period. I personally believe that the Church will be raptured from the earth before the Great Tribulation Period ever begins. First of all, because of the scripture which we just read from Revelation. And secondly, it cannot be at the end of the Great Tribulation Period, because it would hinder other scriptures from being properly fulfilled. What scriptures? First of all, we are told that there will be what is called the Great Marriage Supper of the Lamb, which shall take place in Heaven after the Church is raptured from the earth. We are told of this Great Marriage Supper in Rev. 19:7-10. We are also told in Rev. 19:17, that there shall also be another supper on the earth, at the end of the Great Tribulation Period, which is called the great supper of the great God. This may be where some of the great Bible prophets get the idea that the Marriage Supper of the Lamb will be held upon the earth, after the Great Tribulation Period. But this scripture is not at all even speaking of a supper for human beings. It tells us that an angel shall call all the fowl that fly in the midst of heaven to this supper. Why would God have an angel to call the fowl that fly to come unto a supper? It is because this is speaking of a supper that shall be for the fowl of the air. They will be feasting upon all the dead bodies that shall lie dead upon the earth, after the Battle of Armageddon. Also, immediately following the Great Tribulation Period, and the Battle of Armageddon, we are told in God s Word, that at this time Christ shall set up his great kingdom upon this earth. We are told of this great kingdom which shall be set up on the earth, in Rev. 20:1-6. If the Church of Jesus Christ was not raptured from the earth until the end of the Great Tribulation Period, then there would not be any time left for the Great Marriage Supper of the Lamb. I truly believe with all my heart that we are now going through what I call the pre-tribulation period. God s Word teaches us that the Tribulation Period will come upon the earth, after the rapture of the Church of Jesus Christ from the earth. We may believe that circumstances upon the earth are hard now, but they are nothing compared to the troubles and the hardships which shall come to pass upon the earth, during the time of the Great Tribulation Period. I truly believe that the rapture of the Church is about to come to pass at any moment. And the devil is working harder than he has ever worked before, to try and destroy the lives of Christian people. And the only way that people on this earth today are going to survive the hardships and the torments which the devil is throwing in their pathway, is by placing their faith and trust in Jesus Christ; and being washed clean from all their sin and unrighteousness in his blood; and allowing Him to fight their spiritual battles for them. For without the blood of Jesus being poured upon us, we have no chance of survival whatsoever. God desires to be our means of protection from every attack of Satan; but He can only do so if we come to Him in repentance of our sins, and be washed in Jesus blood. There is no other way to come to the Heavenly Father except through Jesus Christ his Son. John 14:6 tells us: Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh 1 of 16 6/9/07 4:56 PM

2 unto the Father, but by me. And once we accept salvation through Jesus blood, then the devil can no longer harm us in any way. God will be on our side forevermore. And Rom. 8:31 tells us: What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? The main reason why I believe that we are now living in the pre-tribulation period, is because there are so many tragic episodes and disasters coming to pass upon the earth today. And most of them are what we refer to as natural disasters, or such things as hurricanes, tornados, floods, earthquakes, and other such tragic events. Matthew tells us much concerning this great period of tribulation in his gospel, in chapter 24. If we read in Matthew chapter 24, verses 15-28, we will read of some of the conditions which shall take place during the Great Tribulation Period. We are told in these verses that there shall be great tribulation brought upon the people of the earth during this period of time, worse than any tribulation which mankind has ever had to suffer before. We are told that people will be running to the mountains, to try and escape the horrible tribulation which shall be brought upon them. There is a place which is about fifty miles south of the Dead Sea, which is called Petra. Petra is not mentioned by name in the Bible, but many people believe that Petra is the same place that is called Sela. The word Petra actually means rock. We read in Judges 1;36: And the coast of the Amorites was from the going up to Akrabbim, from the rock. Petra is a very popular place in the Holy Land tours, and is a very spectacular archaeological place, in the Near East. Most of the city of Petra is cut out from rock cliffs of the area. Petra contains about seven-hundred and fifty monuments. Most of these monuments were cut out of the rocks during the second half of the first century before Christ, and up to the second century after Christ. Petra was visited by the Roman emperor Hadrian in about 131 A.D. At this time, he ordered that construction begin on the treasured city. Since then, it has been known as Petra s gem. In the city of Petra, there are sights such as a triumphal arch, an amphitheater, bathing areas, temples, tombs, and sections of a road. Above the city of Petra is a great place, which contains sacrificial altars, which are hewn out of the solid rock. Petra must be entered from the west, by passing through a narrow, high-walled gorge, or passageway, which is known as Siq. This narrow passageway is over a mile in length; which provides Petra with an excellent means of defense. The passageway is so narrow, that a person usually has to walk very carefully in order to get through comfortably. Petra is situated in a basin that is about three-thousand feet wide, and about one mile long. The city of Petra is surrounded by massive sandstone cliffs of a dark red color. The reason for telling of this old, stone city of Petra, is because it is believed by many that the city of Petra is where many of the Jewish people will be running to, in order to escape the horrible suffering and pain which is brought upon them by the antichrist during the Great Tribulation Period. Daniel predicted that the tribulation period would last for seven years, and there would be a seven year covenant signed between Israel and the prince that shall come; referring to the antichrist, or the beast. And we are told that unless God shortens these horrible days of tribulation, that no flesh, or no human being, will be saved. In other words, Jesus is telling us here in these scriptures, that unless God shortens these days, no human being will be able to survive through the horrible tribulation which shall be brought upon them. For people will have to suffer, in a greater way than mankind has ever had to suffer since the very beginning of time. What will be the source of this horrible tribulation which shall be brought upon the people? It will be through the one who is called the antichrist. The antichrist is to be a world leader, who will negotiate a peace treaty with Israel during the Great Tribulation Period. Antichrist actually means false teacher, and the world is full of such teachers even now in the days in which we live. He will actually be filled with the spirit of the devil, and will be working against every thing which Jesus Christ stands for. Even though the antichrist is known by many different titles throughout the Bible, he is actually still nothing more than a human being who is completely empowered and influenced by the devil himself. His prefix to his name, anti, tells us that he is completely against Christ; and will be completely false in all his ways and his teachings. He will be the most deceptive leader the world has ever known. He will be as a human genius, and a great power and master of deception. He will promise a peaceful world, but will push the world into war like the world has never known. There are about ten factors which will identify the antichrist when he rises to power upon the earth. There will be only one person who will fit all ten of these factors. These ten factors will be: (1) He will rise to power in the last days. (Dan. 8:19-23) (2) He will not come on the world scene until after the rapture of the church. (2 Thes. 2:3-8) (3) He will rule the entire world. (Rev. 13:7) (4) He will rule by deception, as we are told in Dan. 8: (5) He will rule by international consent. (Rev. 17:12-13) (6) He will be very intelligent and persuasive, as Dan. 7:20 tells us. (7) He will control the global economy. (Rev. 13:16-17) (8) He will be assisted by the false prophet, as we are told in Rev. 13: (9) He will make and break a peace treaty with Israel, as told in Dan. 9: And (10) He will claim to be God, as told in 2 Thes. 2:4. We can not be certain whether or not 2 of 16 6/9/07 4:56 PM

3 the antichrist will be a Jew, or be a Gentile. But it is very clear from God s Word, that he will be the last one in control of world power, before the Lord Himself returns to the earth the second time to set up his kingdom upon the earth. We first begin our study in the sixth chapter of Revelation. Christ Opens The Seven-sealed Scroll 2. In Rev. 6:1-17 we read: And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword. And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine. And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse, and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And Power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth. And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the Word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled. And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? A. These scriptures are referring to the Great Tribulation Period. The opening of each one of the seals, triggers an action that is to take place on the earth. The four horsemen signifies conquest, war, famine, and death. The first horseman reveals a rider with a crown, indicating authority, and a bow without arrows, suggesting that he conquers the world through diplomatic measures; offering peace, rather than by shooting and killing. It is believed that the rider on this horse will be nobody other than the one called the antichrist. He will come to conquer, and will stop at no end, in his attempt to control the world. His world domination will be nothing but a disaster; resulting in the persecution and death of all who appose his leadership This is a sign of the arising of the antichrist, who shall arise at this time. The false peace which the antichrist offers shall fail, and the world shall erupt into war. The antichrist will barely have his peace program began before Jesus breaks the second seal. The rider on this red horse will take peace from the earth, and cause men to begin to kill one another. The sword in this rider s hand signifies that he will come forth with massive weapons of war. Some experts associate this rider on the red horse with Communism. The prophet Ezekiel foretells the rise of a dictator from the far north (possibly Russia) who will go forth to attack Israel in the last days. He will advance with a great army carrying swords and riding horses; but he will meet defeat when many of his own troops shall slay one another; because God will turn each man against his brother so that God s glory may be shown. Jesus is the Prince of Peace, and without Him, there will be no peace at all. Without Him, there can only be war. War will rule the whole world after the rapture. The wars of foolish and deceitful men will kill farmers, destroy land and crops, and cause collapse of social, physical, and political life. These men shall cause nothing but despair, misery, poverty, and death. There shall be a world-wide famine introduced. There shall come a third horse which shall be black; signifying grief and mourning. It s rider will hold a pair of scales in his hand, which shall symbolize economic disaster and famine. The scales will be used to weigh food which will sell for ridiculously high prices. Yet the food of the rich shall not be hurt. And then shall there be a tremendous amount of deaths; about one-fourth of the world s population; by the sword, hunger, and by the beast of the earth. This will be indicated by a rider coming riding upon a pale 3 of 16 6/9/07 4:56 PM

4 horse; the color of rotten flesh and spoiled meat. These dead will be those who have rejected the gospel of Christ, and have chosen to follow the antichrist. B. The opening of the fifth seal shows the souls under the altar who have been put to death for their faith. These people will be those who have accepted Christ as their Savior during the early days of the Great Tribulation Period. Most of them shall be beheaded, and they shall not receive their resurrected bodies until the end of the Great Tribulation Period, when Christ returns to set up his kingdom upon the earth. C. The earth s population during the tribulation will be reduced tremendously; and God will slay those who follow the antichrist and take what is known as the mark of the beast. The antichrist will kill many who refuse to fall down and worship him. By the middle of the Great Tribulation Period, it is estimated that at least half of the population of the world will of been killed. It is believed that there shall be a great earthquake; worse than any other earthquake since the flood. It will be so bad that even the kings of the earth will be wanting the rocks to fall on them and kill them. The Sending Of The 144,000 Witnesses 3. Rev. 7:1-8 tells us: And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, not on the sea, not on any tree. And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea. Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. Of the tribe of Judah were sealed twelve-thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve-thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve-thousand. Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve-thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve-thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve-thousand. Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve-thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve-thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Zebulun were sealed twelve-thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve-thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve-thousand. We also read of the one-hundred and forty-four thousand witnesses in Rev. 14:1-5: And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the Mount Zion, and with Him an hundred forty and four-thousand, having his Father s name written in their foreheads. And I heard a voice from Heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four-thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without faults before the throne of God. A. We are not told what the seal is that shall be in the foreheads of the witnesses; but it will provide them both with protection and with power from on high. B. In their mouth was found no guile. Greek-dolos (dol-os): deceit, craftiness, tricks, or wrongdoing. The Congregation In Heaven 4. We proceed by reading Rev. 7:9-17: After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipping God. Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honor, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen. And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? And whence came they? And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in his temple: and He that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. A. At the time of the Great Tribulation Period upon the earth, the saints of God will be in Heaven; people of 4 of 16 6/9/07 4:56 PM

5 all nationalities, all races, and from all parts of the earth. We will sing praises unto the Lord our God, and unto the Lamb who gave his life for us to receive eternal salvation; the God who sits upon the throne eternally. We will be singing praises and giving thanks and glory and honor unto our God forevermore. Even though we may have to go through much tribulation while living upon this earth, when we get into Heaven, our robes will be washed as white as snow in the blood of the Lamb. We will serve God day and night, and He shall surely dwell among us. B. We have so much hunger and poverty upon this earth today. Almost every day, I receive a letter in the mail from some ministry or organization, asking me to send money to help feed the poor, or to provide clothing for those who are less fortunate. But glory be unto God, when we get to Heaven, there shall be no more hunger or thirst or poverty or any such thing. There will be no more suffering of any kind whatsoever. The Lamb which shall be in our midst shall feed us, and lead us unto living fountains of water, and there will be no more crying; for He will wipe away all tears from our eyes. Christ Opens The Seventh Seal 5. We go on to read from Rev. 8:1-5: And when He had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in Heaven about the space of half an hour. And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel s hand. And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake. The judgments that are coming upon the earth at this time, are so tragic and horrible, that Heaven comes to silence in anticipation. And the marvelous happenings going on in Heaven at this time, are a result of the prayers of all the saints throughout the ages. The Seven Trumpets 6. Rev. 8:6-9:21: And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea become blood. And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed. And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of water; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter. And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise. And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of Heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound! And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key to the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter. And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound 5 of 16 6/9/07 4:56 PM

6 in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two-hundred-thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt. And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of woods: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts. A. As we can see from the Word of God, the time of the Great Tribulation Period is going to be a horrible time to have to live upon this earth. No matter who your are, or how important you that may think that you may be, you do not want to be here on this earth during the Great Tribulation. And your only means of escape is through the blood of Jesus Christ. And as we stated earlier, the rapture of the Church could take place at any moment. So do not put it off another minute. If you have not asked Jesus to come into your heart by faith, do it today. B. Wormwood-Greek-apsinthos (ap-sin-thos): a bitter, or poisonous herb; figuratively speaking of bitterness, trouble, or calamity. C. When the fourth angel said Woe, woe, woe, he was indicating that the worst was yet to come. D. Jacinth-Greek-huakinthos (hoo-ak-in-this): a gem of a deep blue color. E. Brimstone-Greek-theion (thi-on): sulfur. Opening The Little Book 7. We will now read of another angel; perhaps Michael or Gabriel, or another very important angel; who comes down from Heaven with a little book; in Rev. 10:1-11: And I saw another mighty angel come down from Heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from Heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, And sware by Him that liveth for ever and ever, who created Heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, and there should be time no longer: But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He hath declared to his servants the prophets. And the voice which I heard from Heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth. And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey. And I took the little book out of the angel s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings. The little book referred to in these scriptures, which was seen in Heaven, is figuratively speaking of the future plans of God; for Jesus Christ to return to the earth once again, to set up his kingdom for one-thousand years, Heaven, and also the judgment of God upon sinners who refuse to repent of their sins and come to Him, and of their eternity in Hell. The Temple And God s Two Witnesses 8. We next read in Rev. 11:1-13: And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two-hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophesy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. And 6 of 16 6/9/07 4:56 PM

7 when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascended out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from Heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to Heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven-thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of Heaven. A. The temple which John is commanded to measure, will probably be a temple which is built by the Jews during the Great Tribulation. B. The holy city which is spoken of being tread under foot, will be controlled by the Jews for the first half of the seven year tribulation period. So this must take place during the last half of the tribulation period; when the Gentiles, under the leadership of the antichrist, have control of the holy city; which is Jerusalem. The antichrist will not only turn the holy temple from a place of true worship of God, into a place of worship of himself; making himself appear as God in the temple, and demand that people worship him. C. God s two witnesses will appear on the scene; performing mighty miracles, as well as preaching the true gospel of Jesus Christ to the people right at the location of the temple; and attempting to persuade people to accept the true Messiah; while warning them of the coming tragic events of the last half of the Great Tribulation Period. There have been much speculation concerning who these two witnesses shall be. It is believed by some to be Elijah and Enoch, and many believe them to be Moses and Elijah. Regardless of who they may truly be, the antichrist will have no power over them for the first half of the Great Tribulation Period; and anyone who threatens to harm them will be put to death. But once they have finished completed their mission which God sent them here to carry out, power will then be given unto the antichrist to kill them. Those who are unsaved by the testimony of the two witnesses, will so despise them that they will refuse to bury their bodies, and leave them to decay in the streets. We are even told that they will carry out a Christmas-like ceremony because of the death of the two witnesses, by sending gifts one to another. We are told that all nations and tongues shall see their dead bodies lying in the streets of Jerusalem. This will be possible because of the video technology which the world has been able to develop. And then God will send life back into the bodies of the two witnesses, after three and one-half days, and raise them back up into Heaven. What a surprise this will be to the people living in that terrible day; and what a sign of God s amazing power; just proving to the people that He still has complete power over every circumstance. And because of the Spirit of God raising up these two witnesses, and taking them back up into Heaven, many of the Jews will realize at this time, that they have been wrong; and they will get scared, and repent of their sins, and begin to give glory unto the God of Heaven. The Seventh Angel Introduces The Last Half Of The Great Tribulation Period; Including A Review of Israel s History And Prophesy Of Her Future 9. We read in Rev. 11:14-12:17: The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly. And the seventy angel sounded; and there were great voices in Heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of the Lord, and of his Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever. And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God. Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. And the temple of God was opened in Heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail. And there appeared a great wonder in Heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and 7 of 16 6/9/07 4:56 PM

8 upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in Heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two-hundred threescore days. And there was war in Heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in Heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in Heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. A. The earth was intended by God to be a place of great blessings from God. But Satan, the antichrist, and his false prophets, have caused it to be a place of great suffering; through their deceitfulness and causing people to rebel against God. We are told that the second woe is past, and that the third woe cometh quickly. Greek-ouai (oo-ah-ee): time of grief or great suffering. B. The woman which is spoken of in this passage of scripture must be Israel, or the Church. For Satan tried to kill Jesus many times during his lifetime, since his birth in Bethlehem. And since he could not be successful at such, he has went to trying in every way to destroy his Church. But praise be unto God; he has not been successful at this either; nor will he ever be. C. The dragon spoken of is without a doubt referring to Satan. And the seven heads are referring to the seven world kingdoms which have existed from Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome, and the end-time government of the antichrist. D. The place prepared by God during the time of the terrible persecution of the Jewish people, which is said to be in the wilderness, is believed to be Edom; which lies very close to Petra; which we told of before, which lies back in the mountains; or it may very likely even be speaking of the same place. E. When it speaks of there being war in Heaven, it sounds very much like the conflict which came to pass centuries ago, between Michael and his angels, and Lucifer and his angels; when Lucifer (or Satan) was kicked out of Heaven; along with his bunch of idiotic angels who were stupid enough to follow him in his revolt against God Almighty. And since that time, he has had access to all the brethren; including Job, and every saint who has lived since that time. F. Satan is here called that old serpent once again; just as he was called in the Garden of Eden; when he tempted Adam and Eve to do wrong; and continually attempts to put temptation into people s minds to do wrong unto this very day. He is also very clearly identified as the devil. But praise God, we can always overcome him by the blood of the Lamb; or the blood of Jesus Christ. And we must always love not our lives unto the death. For following death of all saints, is a great celebration of new life in Heaven. G. It is stated here once again, that Satan knows very well that his time is short, before the ending of the world. And he is working harder than ever before because of such. And the flood that flows from Satan s mouth, signifies the hard work which he is putting forth, in trying to destroy Israel, as well as the rest of the saints of the world. H. The seed signifies the Jews who turn to Christ in repentance of their sins in the last days; and receive his divine protection from the antichrist. 8 of 16 6/9/07 4:56 PM

9 The End Time Beast 10. We read of the great beast of the last days; which represents the devil, or the antichrist, in Rev. 13:1-10: And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in Heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must by killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. A. There is no doubt whatsoever, that this beast is referring to the antichrist; who shall be totally empowered by the devil. The crowns upon his horns represent the kingdoms or the nations which shall follow his leadership. His power, his seat or his throne of power, and his great authority over all the earth at this time, shall be given unto him by the devil. B. The power of the devil shall also give the antichrist the ability to be healed of any and all deadly wounds which he may suffer; causing people to admire him, and to fall down and worship him. C. The antichrist shall also continually speak blasphemies against the God of Heaven, against the Lord s tabernacle, and against all them that dwell in Heaven; during the forty-two months which he shall reign and rule over all the world. He shall be given power to rule over all kindreds, tongues, and nations. But as we said before, his power shall be totally from the devil. And we are reminded once again of the terrible pathway which one must follow who chooses to follow him. And any saints of God who are living on the earth at this time, must be completely patient, and truly live by their faith in God Almighty. The False Prophet 11. The false prophet which is spoken of here, will truly be a servant of the antichrist. He is called the second beast, and he will receive power from the first beast, and will cause the people of the world to worship the first beast. We read in Rev. 13:11-15: And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly would was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. A. The false prophet was completely empowered by the devil; just as the antichrist; and his main mission will be to cause people to fall down and worship the antichrist. He will do mighty miracles, which will cause people to want to build an image or an idol of the antichrist. And the false prophet will have the power to cause life to come into the image which is built. And all who refuse to worship the image, will be put to death. B. We are also told that there will be false prophets, who will show great signs and wonders; so great that if it were possible, they would deceive the very elect of God. Greek-eklektos (ek-lek-tos): God s favorite, select, chosen, or his saved people. A prophet is someone who has the power to predict things which are going to take place in the future. The word prophet comes from the Hebrew word nabiy (naw-bee), which means an inspired person; usually referring to one who is inspired by God to tell of things which shall come to pass. The word prophet also comes from the Greek word prophetes (prof-ay-tace), which means a foreteller, or an inspired speaker of things which are yet to come to pass. The false prophets which shall appear during the Great Tribulation Period, shall actually be assistants to the antichrist. A few days ago, I 9 of 16 6/9/07 4:56 PM

10 read an interesting story in the local newspaper; concerning two men who had met together in a local restaurant. And one of the men was telling the other man of how he had been inspired by God to know that on this particular day in the near future, that massive wrath was going to come upon the earth, and upon our country. He warned people to get prepared, because on this particular day, God was going to send down his wrath like never before. He said that he did not know exactly what form of wrath it would be, but it was surely going to come to pass on this particular day. His story was on the local news broadcasts all over the nation. He was shown packing away food into his storage area of his private home, as if we were about to enter the seven years of famine, as Joseph told us of in Gen. 41: When I heard this story, I did not feel as if I should do anything, except just continue living my life one day at a time, and continue trusting fully in God. If the wrath of God was to come to pass on this particular day, as this man had predicted, then God would take care of me and my family, as He has always done. There was no use in panicing over a matter which may not even come to pass. And surely enough, this particular day came to pass; and not one single event came to pass on this day, which was any different than on any other day. I truly do believe that the wrath of God is being poured out upon this earth in many different ways. But I do not believe that God is going to tell any particular person at exactly what time his wrath will come to pass, no more than He will tell anyone the time of the rapture of the Church from the earth. He simply tells us in his Word, that of that day and hour knoweth no man; not the angels of Heaven, nor any one else except the Heavenly Father. (Matt. 24:36) This just proves to us that there are already false prophets upon this earth, even in the time in which we live today. We must continually stay in touch with God through his Holy Spirit; and always be certain that it is his Holy Spirit who is speaking to us. For there are false prophets all over the earth today; who are prophesying all sorts of false things to the people of the world. And the only way in which we are going to know whether or not they are truly prophets of God, is by continually staying in touch with God, and by continually studying and meditating upon the Word of God. And once again, even though it is possible to be saved during the Great Tribulation Period, it will most certainly not be a pleasant time to have to live upon this earth. So if you do not know for certain, without any doubt whatsoever, that you have been born again; that you have asked Jesus to come into your heart by faith, and wash you in his precious blood, then I plead with you to make certain of your salvation at this very moment. Do not put it off any longer. For Jesus could come back at any time, to rapture his Church from the earth; and you do not want to be left behind. It will be worse than anything ever known to mankind, at any time in human history. The Mark 12. We read of the mark of the beast in Rev. 13:16-18: And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six- hundred threescore and six. The mark of the beast will be required by the false prophet to be put upon all people, in order to bring the world into a global economy, a world government, and a world religion. In order for a person to be able to buy anything or to sell anything, they will have to have this mark placed upon their foreheads or upon their right hand; to identify them as a servant of the antichrist. But there will be some who will be wise enough to refuse to receive this horrible mark. But it will be a horrible time for them to have to live upon the earth; and they will at this time have to flee for their safety. It is believed by many, that this will be the time when the Jews will realize what a mistake that they have made, in first believing that the antichrist was truly one to be trusted. They will not be able to feed their families without allowing this horrible mark to be placed upon them. So they will have to repent of their sins, and begin to depend and trust completely upon God to provide for them. And it is also believed by many people that this will be the time when the Jews will flee to the mountains; to the place which we mentioned earlier, called Petra. And we are warned again in verse 18, what this horrible number shall be; as if to remind us that we most certainly do not want to receive this horrible mark of the beast. The mark of the beast, or the number 666 must in some way or another, be equivalent to the name of the antichrist. The Judgment Of God 13. We read next of the falling of Babylon, and of how the day of God s judgment has come; and of the torment which the people who receive the mark of the beast shall suffer; and of the rest which the saints of God shall receive which refuse to receive the mark of the beast. We read in Rev. 14:6-20: And I saw another angel fly in the midst of Heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people. Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give 10 of 16 6/9/07 4:56 PM
