Rev. # 65~19:1- PRAISES FROM HEAVEN 7-31-10

At this point in our study of the Revelation of Jesus Christ, let us be aware that the 7- year Tribulation is coming to a close with the Lords return and the Battle of Armageddon.

The Old Testament saints have no part in the Church because they lived and died under an entirely different covenant--Law instead of Grace. Therefore, another judgment will obviously be required for them, not to mention those saved during the Tribulation Period after the Church is removed and then those of the Millennium itself.

The final bowls of Gods wrath are found in chapter 16: and gives us the 7 bowl judgments. with these” bowl judgments”, which are the worst of all the preceding judgments, and coming with the 7th an earth quake that will cause every city in the world to tumble into heaps.–

16: 17-18 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. 18And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.

This chapter brings us to the end of the tribulation period. There are several events described in chapter 19: that we’ll try & talk about as we come to them Lord willing.

-- The Marriage of the Lamb--- the 2nd Advent of Christ--- Armageddon—and the judgment of the nations.

Christ’s returns back to earth here in this chapter, He conquers all of His enemies known as the battle of Armageddon** although we can not find that term any place in the Bible, then He will sit on His Throne of glory in Matt.25: as His Holy angels gathers all the people of the nations together, (notice) these made it through the tribulation} their referred to as the goats and the sheep, these people will be judged as whether or not they befriended the Jews in the tribulation or not, the sheep will go into the Millennial reign and they will populate the earth again, the goats, enemies of the Jews during that time will be cast into hell, {outer darkness} its called. We’ll get into that later. Lord willing.

Ø The 12 Apostles will judge the 12 Tribes of Israel.

Matt.19:28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel

Jerusalem will be His Headquarters.

Revelation 5:9-10— the church, which are the Elders.

Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth –world wide, the earth-

Only the Church is referred to here as (kings)-- only the Church is given the status of royalty. –The Church is referred to as (kings & priest} not priest only.

Tribulation martyrs serve the Lord in His earthly Temple.-- It’s a priestly role. They aren’t ever referred to as kings; the kings will be over a certain territory, maybe a mayor, a governor, whatever He see appropriate. –It will be according to our faithfulness now at this time. The True Church will rule and reign with Him, somewhere out in the world as He sees fit. –

The elect of the Church Age will serve in many different supervisory positions-- and probably be determined by the Lord at the Judgment Seat of Christ.

Let me point out that the Temple these Martyrs serve Him in will be in the earthly temple, there’s no temple in the N.J., the home of the Bride.

We’re told about the Millennial Temple in Ezekiel chapters 40-48. There will be night as well as day in the 1000 years reign.

But in the New Jerusalem there’s no need of the sun because He will be the light, neither is there a temple in the New Jerusalem, THE REASON BEING, a temple is to worship God, but God will be there in the N.J. we can go directly to Him at this time to worship Him as we’ll see Him physically.

In Rev. 21:22 we’re told that in the New Jerusalem there will be no temple there.

21:22-And I saw no temple therein:-- and then in 22:3-5 we read--

22: 3-5 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; (N.J.) and his servants shall serve him:** 4And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. 5And there shall be no night there;--so there’s no temple or night in the N.J. because He is LIGHT.
