[UltraVid id=17 ]What is the book of Revelation all about stick around and find out today on the beat hey what’s up everybody my name is Alan Parr thank you all so much for visiting my channel today we are talking about the book of Revelation a book that has many many different interpretations a book that many Christians avoid reading and some are actually afraid of reading it but today I want to take you through a Sevenfold chronological journey through the book of Revelation and the first thing we need to look at is the background the name of the book comes from the very first verse which says the revelation of Jesus Christ which lets us know that this book is about the unveiling or the uncovering of the person the plan and the power of one man named Jesus Christ it was written in 95 AD by a man named the Apostle John who also wrote the Gospel of John and the 1st 2nd and 3rd letters of John second of all we have revelation chapters 2 and 3 where Jesus writes seven letters to seven churches that were located in Asia Minor in each one of these letters consists of or exposes or deals with a particular sin that was going on in the churches at that time but it applies to all churches throughout all history and these two chapters represent the current church age in which we are living in today next we have what’s called the tribulation and this covers the bulk of the book of Revelation chapters 6 through 19 and this refers to a seven-year period where by which the church has been now raptured and taken away from the earth to be with God in heaven and those who have been left behind have been graciously given another opportunity to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior but the catch is that it will be very difficult to be a Christian during these seven years because the church and all spiritual influence has been removed leaving nothing but wickedness wrath and chaos behind now the last three and a half years of this seven-year period is what scholars are calling the great tribulation and things are going to get you know bad it’s going to have Sun scorching people’s skin it’s going to have water that you can drink sores on people’s skin and it is going to be increasingly more difficult to say that you are a Christian during this last three and a half years of the tribulation and so after the seven years of tribulation are ended the Bible says that the next event will be what’s called the Battle of Armageddon and I hesitate to call it a battle because Jesus and all of his armies which includes you and I we are going to totally and completely destroy Satan and his armies and the Bible says that after this battle that Satan will be bound for a thousand years next we have what is called the Millennial Kingdom and this is the actual second coming of Jesus Christ and it will be a 1000 year period whereby Jesus sets up a literal Kingdom here on earth and every Christian who has ever believed in Jesus Christ throughout all time will also rule and reign with Jesus Christ on earth and it will be a time that will be characterized by righteousness peace and joy and holiness because Satan and all of his demonic influence will be bound and so six we have the judgments and so after the 1,000 years have ended Satan and his whole demonic crew will be cast into the lake of fire and then every single non-believer throughout the history of time will stand before God in what is called the great white throne judgment and they will give an account for their sins and then they will also be cast into the lake of fire to spend eternity apart from God and number seven is the good news and that’s the fact that God will create a new heaven and a new earth interestingly enough there are only four chapters in the entire Bible where there is a perfect environment Genesis chapters 1 and 2 and Revelation chapters 21 and 22 and so what we see here is that God’s perfect amazing story coming full circle whereby God reestablishes the perfect environment that he had intended at creation and the reason for this is because the earth in which we currently live in is not fit for eternity because it’s decaying every day so God is going to do away with this earth is going to burn it with fire it is going to create a new heaven and a new earth where we can dwell with him throughout all eternity and so I hope this short video will whet your appetite and encourage you to study the book of Revelation and see the awesome plan that God has for the future and most importantly that this book will give us as Christians comfort and knowing that no matter how crazy things get on earth that God was is and always will be in complete control of human history if you found this video helpful in any way feel free to share it with a friend also if you haven’t done so already I would appreciate if you head over to my youtube channel and hit that subscribe button hey thank you all so much for watching I’ll see you next time on the beat
