6/21/2024 WED507 Revelation 19:11-21 Faithful and true- The Word of God is seated on a white horse with many crowns on his head, and the day of vengeance in His heart.

6/20/2024 WED506 Revelation 19:1-10 The wedding supper of the Lamb- Great multitudes shout "Hallelujah. For our Lord God Almighty reigns." Fine linen, bright and clean, is given the saints for their righteous acts. Are we making ourselves ready, walking blamelessly before our Lord?
6/19/2024 WED506 Revelation 19:1-10 Hallelujah- Roaring in heaven glorifies God for judging the evil, world-wide religious system, and the smoke from her goes up for ever and ever.

6/18/2024 WED505 Revelation 18 The nations were led astray- God judges economic Babylon because of her pride. The Lord said where our treasure is, there our heart will be also. Are we laying up treasure for ourselves in heaven?
6/17/2024 WED505 Revelation 18 The fruit you longed for- Here, economic Babylon is destroyed by the Lord Himself. Her riches are gone in one hour, never to be recovered. Do we measure our worth by what we have in the world that is passing away?
6/14/2024 WED504 Revelation 17 A mind with wisdom- Babylon has come full circle. World religions are under one banner, but the prostitute that brought them together is brutally destroyed.

6/13/2024 WED504 Revelation 17 Babylon the substitute- The great prostitute is a religious system that supports the antichrist.

6/12/2024 WED503 Revelation 16 Gathered to Armageddon- Demons come out of the antichrist, beast, and false prophet to perform signs and gather armies to Armageddon.

6/11/2024 WED503 Revelation 16 Men refused to repent- A great voice from the temple tells the angels to pour out the bowls of God's wrath: the 1st angel-painful sores, 2nd-sea turns to blood, 3rd-rivers and springs turn to blood, 4th-the sun scorches, the 5th-the throne of the antichrist is plunged into darkness. Men still refused to repent.
6/10/2024 WED502 Revelation 14:14-15:8 Your righteous acts- 7 angels with 7 last plagues come forth. Martyrs with harps, victorious over the antichrist, sing "Great and marvelous are Your deeds." Do we lift up our heads knowing the Lord is mighty in the battles of our lives?
6/7/2024 WED502 Revelation 14:14-15:8 A sharp sickle- The Lord harvests the good from the earth. With nothing left to redeem, an angel with a second sharp sickle harvests people from a Christ-rejecting world. They are trampled in a wine press outside Jerusalem and blood flows almost 200 miles.
6/6/2024 WED501 Revelation 14:1-13 Three angelic announcements- Three angels announce to the earth the everlasting gospel, Babylon is fallen, and that eternal torment will be the destiny of those who worship the beast.

6/5/2024 WED501 Revelation 14:1-13 The Lamb on Mount Zion- Jesus stands on Mount Zion with 144,000 singing a new song. They did not defile themselves with sexual impurity, a false religious system, or deceit. They have been faithful and follow the Lamb wherever He goes. Let us do the same.
6/4/2024 WED500 Revelation 13:11-18 Both small and great- Perhaps using technology currently on the horizon, the deceiver gives "breath" to the image of the antichrist. Both small and the great must receive a mark on their right hand or forehead to buy or sell.
6/3/2024 WED500 Revelation 13:11-18 The mark of the beast- The second beast (the false prophet) calls down fire from heaven in full view of humanity. That deceiver requires everyone worship the image of the antichrist or die. He forces a mark. How shall we live in light of this persecution?
5/31/2024 WED499 Revelation 13:1-10 Patient endurance- An astonished world worships the dragon and the beast, who rule for 42 months. In God's sovereignty, the antichrist is given power to make war against "the saints" and conquer them. This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of the saints.
5/30/2024 WED499 Revelation 13:1-10 Out of the sea- The beast (antichrist) arises out of a global crisis and 10 "governments." Satan gives him power. His "fatal" wound is healed in a false resurrection.
5/29/2024 WED498 Revelation 11:18-12:17 War in heaven- Michael attacks Satan and that deceiver is thrown to earth. A remnant of Israel is kept safe in Petra. Satan makes war against the saints who overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony.
5/28/2024 WED498 Revelation 11:18-12:17 The last trumpet- The Lord takes His great power and begins to reign. The "woman" Israel gives birth to the Ruler of All. Through the ages, Satan has tried to destroy the Jews and especially the royal line, but he never had a chance of succeeding.
5/27/2024 WED497 Revelation 11:1-17 Finishing the course- When they have finished their testimony, the antichrist kills the 2 prophets and the world rejoices, but they rise after 3 1/2 days. Are we numbering our days and applying our hearts to wisdom?

5/23/2024 WED496 Revelation 10 Eat the scroll- The angel tells John to eat the little scroll. Unless we are steeped in the word of God we can't bring life to those around us. The Lord is very candid, that part of our Christian experience is sweet, and some is bitter, but He wants to redeem it all.
5/22/2024 WED496 Revelation 10 Seal up the 7 thunders- A mighty angel with a little scroll comes to earth. The 7 thunders speak and John is told not to write what they say. The angel says there will be no more delay.
5/21/2024 WED495 Revelation 9 Still no repentance- The 6th trumpet releases four angels who kill 1/3 of mankind, and 200 million troops are involved. 3 plagues of fire, smoke, and sulfur are not enough to turn the survivors to the Living God.

5/16/2024 WED494 Revelation 8 Silence in heaven- The 7th seal starts the trumpet judgments, but before this starts, awe comes over all before the throne. The prayers of the saints go up before God, and down comes a censer filled with fire from the altar.
5/15/2024 WED493 Revelation 7 Multitudes in white robes- Out of the great tribulation come those who have washed their robes white in the blood of the Lamb.
