New Beginning Era

  • The Revelation unveils the Lord Jesus in His majesty
    • One whose eyes are a flame of fire
    • His voice as the sound of many waters
  • The Revelation pictures the resur-rected Christ at work in this world
    • He walks among the churches
    • He receives worship due Him
    • He pours out judgment on the world
    • He raptures His church
    • He returns in glory to judge the dead
    • He reveals His new heaven and new earth where righteousness lives
overview
Overview
  • The great conflict at the center of every Bible story begins in Genesis. In the beginning….
    • There is a perfect garden
    • Within it grows the trees of life and of knowledge of good and evil
    • The serpent tempts man to rebel against God
    • Man chooses sin and death
    • An innocent animal dies to cover man’s shame, instituting the sacrifice of the innocent for the guilty
    • Man is cast out of God’s presence
    • The earth is cursed
overview1
Overview
  • The Bible story presents three basic epochs
    • Creation before sin (the Garden before the fall)
      • God created the universe and all that is in it, and it was “good”
    • Creation groaning under the strain of sin (corrupting influence of man’s choice to rebel and live apart from God)
      • Sin enters creation through man and corrupts it
      • The cross of Christ deals with penalty for sin (separation from God), but not the curse of sin (its effects on creation)
    • Creation after sin (perfect fellowship with God is restored)
      • Sin is removed and creation is restored
      • The redeemed spend eternity in perfect fellowship and joyful service before the King, Jesus Christ
overview2
Overview
  • The Book of the Revelation relates the story of creation’s restoration
    • The Lamb of God enthroned in heaven as judge
    • The cleansing of sin from creation
    • The destruction of the serpent
    • The glory of a new heaven and a new earth
key truths

Discussion

Revelation 4 begins with the phrase, “After these things”. What precedes John’s heavenly vision?

After Jesus addresses the seven churches, the church is ne-vermentioned again in Revelation. What might this imply?

Three views as to the timing of the rapture of the church

Pre-Tribulation: The church is removed before the great tribulation

Mid-Tribulation: The church remains on the earth through the first three-and-a-half years to help harvest tribulation saints

Post-Tribulation: The church endures the entire tribulation period and the rapture and glorious appearing are one in the same

What is the difference between the song the angels sing in 4:8 vesus 5:9-10?

What does it mean to say that the redeemed will be a kingdom and priests to God and they will reign on the earth?

the judgment before the throne

The Judgment Before the Throne

Revelation 20:11-15

Revelation 21:3

judgment before the throne
Judgment Before the Throne
  • The Bible regularly Divides People into Two Groups
    • People of faith in God
    • People of unbelief in and rebellion against God
  • One Final Separation will occur before the Great White Throne of Judgment
    • The timing of the judgment
      • Occurs after the millennial reign and the final rebellion of man
      • Immediately before the establishing of the new heaven and earth
    • The purpose of the judgment
      • All the unredeemed dead will rise to be judged by their deeds recorded in the “books” (resurrection to judgment)
      • Their names not being found in the “book of life”, they will be cast completely out of the presence of God for eternity
        • There will be no appeal to a higher authority for there is no higher authority than Jesus
judgment before the throne1
Judgment Before the Throne
  • Every Person will Stand before Christ and be Judged
    • Unbelievers before the great white throne judgment, condemned by their deeds
    • Believers before the judgment seat of Christ, evaluated for reward
      • 2 Corinthians 5:10 ~ For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.
    • Every Christian should live with “that day” in mind
judgment before the throne2
Judgment Before the Throne
  • The Final Scene John sees; the Righteous Serving the Lamb (Eternal Kingdom)
    • The curse received by Adam and Eve will be removed
      • All of the redeemed will spend eternity in purposeful, joyful, sinless service to the King they love
    • Sin is completely and eternally resolved
      • It’s penalty paid at the cross
      • It’s power broken at the resurrection
      • It’s presence eradicated in the reclamation of creation

Oh Glorious Day!!!

Discussion

Read Revelation 3:5. How can one’s name be ‘erased’ from the book of life?

Revelation 3:5 ~ He who overcomes will thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.

What should motivate us to live today with “that day” of judgment in mind?

Fear of regret?

Desire for heavenly reward?

Love for the King who redeemed us?

What are we doing to ensure that our loved ones and friends are ready for the day of judgment?

conclusions
Conclusions
  • Jesus is the God-man who came as a humble ser-vant the first time, but will one day return as the glorious King to reclaim creation and judge all men.
  • Those who resist God’s reign and His Son’s re-demption will be cast into the lake of fire.
  • Those who recognize their need and trust in Jesus Christ will be welcome before His throne for all eternity.
