Many times we don’t realize that the pain and suffering of this world is caused by a curse that God will reverse during the Tribulation. Learn the origins, effects, and ending of this worldwide curse.

We see in Revelation 4 that the first words John hears are worship - and that the highest order of angels and the best of the redeemed humans bow to God - what does that tell us about our activities here on earth?
Chapter 4 marks a huge shift in the book of the Revelation. First, we leave the epistle section of chapters 2 and 3 where Jesus Himself wrote to the church. Second we leave the church age itself.

Like the cavalry to the rescue, Jesus comes riding back to earth on a white horse to wipe out the enemy and set up His kingdom. What does that mean to us as we find ourselves in need of rescue right here and now?
As we move into chapters 19 and 20 of The Book of the Revelation we can breathe a big sigh of relief. No more plagues and catastrophes, no more rebellion and evil ruling the planet.

If you’ve ever wondered what heaven is like, we get one of our most complete looks at it in the final chapters of Revelation. We’ll also see heaven and hell compared.
When you think of heaven, what comes to your mind? The stereotypical view is of white puffy clouds, with us dressed in white robes with wings, carrying harps and just lazing around all day with nothing to do. Is that heaven?
