Bible Study: The Book of the Revelation – LESSON 6

Calvary Bible Church Bible Study

The Book of the Revelation

 

LESSON 6:

PARENTHETICAL PASSAGE AND OTHER INFORMATION.  7:1-17.

Chapter 7 introduces a new item that can be confusing if it is not understood and recognized.  This component is called a “PARENTHETICAL PASSAGE” (as though the material were in parentheses), and it is a “break” in the normal flow and progress of the action.  In the normal “flow” of things, the SIXTH SEAL would be followed immediately by the SEVENTH SEAL.  However, we find that this “flow” is interrupted by the vision of the 144,000 sealed Jews, and the multitude of Gentiles.  It may help you to think of these parenthetical passages as being like a commercial during a television program.  This is NOT to say that their information is any less important, but that they “break” into the normal flow of events.  As we progress through the rest of the Revelation, you will see other parenthetical passages.

Bible Study: The Book of the Revelation – LESSON 5 THE SEAL JUDGMENTS

Calvary Bible Church Bible Study

The Book of the Revelation

 

LESSON 5:

THE SEAL JUDGMENTS.

Chapters 4–5 were occupied with heaven; in chapter 6 events of the earth, with which most of the Apocalypse deals, come before the reader. The method by which the truth of chapter 5 is carried out is presented here: Christ’s entering in upon the purchased possession.  The fulfillment of Man’s rebellion against God and His people, and God’s pouring out of His judgement (in the vial or bowl judgments) is seen starting here.

The Creator on the Throne. 4:1–11.

Thus far, the first two divisions of the prophecy have been covered (1:19): the things John saw (chapter. 1) and the things which are (the current position of the seven churches, which can also be applied to the status of churches world-wide during the “church-age” (chapters. 2–3).  The largest section of the book (chapters. 4–22) is divisible into three parts:  Continue Reading Here

The Letter To The Church At Sardis

vrs     1                  Sardis is about twenty-seven miles due south of Thyatira. It was one of the oldest and greatest cities of western Asia. In ancient times it was a proud, wealthy city, the capital of the kingdom of Lydia. It had a history of many wars, and it was the city of the wealthy Croesus. The patron deity of the city was Cybele, whose form appeared on their coins. She was represented as half-human and was regularly associated with a pair of lions or single lion. The deity was supposed to have power to restore the dead. The city fell before Cyrus the Great of Persia in the sixth century B.C. In 17 A.D. the city suffered greatly from an earthquake. When John wrote this letter, the city was a city of the past.  Later, it was restored and continued to flourish until 1400–1403 A.D., when the Tartar (Mongol) Tamerlane swept over the area and destroyed everything. The city has never recovered from this desolation. Continue Reading Here

Bible Study: The Holy Spirit – The Ministry of The Spirit in the Church as a Whole – Lesson #3

Lesson 3: The Ministry of The Spirit in the Church as a Whole  

The Holy Spirit is seemingly the least understood of the members of the Trinity.  Although many churches in the modern era TALK about the Spirit, the vast majority of them focus on the “power” and the “gifts”, rather than the Person and Ministry of the Spirit.  And even then, they produce a lot of unbiblical information on the “power” and “gifts” that leads to a very unbalanced understanding of what Christianity is really all about.

Sermon Audio: Let It Shine

 Scripture Reference:  2 Corinthians 4:1-11

1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;
2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
11 For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

 

Sermon Audio: The Keys To Our Victory Over Satan

Scripture Reference:  Revelation 12:7-12

7   And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
8   And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
9   And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10   And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
11   And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
12   Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

Bible Study: The Jewish wedding ceremony as a symbol of the plan of Jesus’ relationship to the church

We are told in Scripture that Christ is the Bridegroom and that the Church is the Bride (Ephesians 5:22-32), and that the first event to be celebrated when the Church arrives in “heaven” is the Marriage-Supper of the Lamb (Revelation 19:7-9).  However, most commentators and expositors fail to draw the obvious conclusion; that the Biblical “Jewish” Wedding Ceremony has very significant meaning to our understanding of the relationship between Christ and the Church, and that the ceremony (with its’ sequence of events) is a DIRECT parallel to the sequence of events in the life of the believer (including FUTURE events).  Continue Reading Here
