Revelation (Program #34) – The Stone With the Seven Eyes For God’s Building

The Old Testament prophet, Zechariah, tells us in chapter three that a stone with seven eyes will be engraved with an inscription.  And by this engraving, the iniquity of the people will be removed in one day.  The New Testament gospel of John tells us that the Lamb of God takes away the sins of the people. The stone with the seven eyes in Zechariah is this Lamb of God in John.  And in the final book Revelation, this Lamb-stone with seven eyes reappears.

Revelation (Program #32) – The Four Aspects of the Experience of the Lampstand

The very first verse in the book of Revelation says, “The revelation of Jesus Christ which God gave to Him to show to His slaves the things that must quickly take place; and He made it known by signs, sending it by His angel to His slave John…”

To understand the revelation that was given to John, and then given to us through John, we must understand signs. One of the key signs in this book and in the whole Bible is that of the golden shining Lampstand.

Revelation (Program #30) - The Rapture of the Believers (2)

Leviticus 23:10 says, “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them, When you come into the land which I give to you, and reap its harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest to the priest;”

The firstfruits of the harvest are first mentioned in the Bible in this verse. But the prophetic aspects of the firstfruits are developed in the New Testament book of Revelation. Who are these firstfruits mentioned in Revelation 14? And who is the priest to whom they will be brought before the terrible hour of the Great Tribulation?

Revelation (Program #27) - The Treading of Jerusalem and Testimony of the Two Witnesses

In Matthew chapter 17, when the Lord Jesus was being visibly glorified in front of Peter, James, and John, verse 3 says “And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, conversing with Him.”

For that very monumental event, the Lord Jesus wanted these two representatives of the Old Testament dispensation of the Law and the Prophets to be present. But they are not through yet, because Revelation reveals that these two will appear again during the fearsome days of the Great Tribulation in Jerusalem.

“And I saw another strong Angel coming down out of heaven, clothed with a cloud; And He placed His right foot on the sea and the left on the land; And He cried out with a loud voice just as a lion roars.” – Revelation 10:1-3

When Christ comes to take possession of the earth at the end of this age, He will come not as a lamb, but as a roaring lion.
