The King Is Coming:

The Word, The Witnesses and Worship

Revelation 10:1-11:19

“Behold I am coming soon!  Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy in this book.” Revelation 22:7

 

During the great tribulation…

  • John receives from an angel the revelation of the Lord’s future judgment on the world which is sweet to the faithful and sour to the wicked. 10:1-11
  • The two witnesses who are protected by the Lord announce judgment on the world until they are killed by the anti-Christ and then resurrected by the Lord. 11:1-14
  • The seventh trumpet announces worship of the Lord in heaven because His judgments on the wicked will be perfect and He will soon come to rule over the earth.  11:15-19

Lessons for us: 

  • God reveals to you in His word His plans for judgment and blessing.
  • God fully protects you until you have completed your God ordained mission as His witness.
  • God will reign eternally and powerfully over his kingdom which should motivate you to worship Him.

Application:  What are you doing to know His word?  Where has God called you to be His witness?  How are you doing as a witness for Him?  How engaged are you in worship of our coming King?

Yes, I am coming soon.  Amen.  Come, Lord Jesus.

Rev. 22:20b
