Revelation 11 pt 14

Revelation 11 pt 14

Continuing our study of Revelation 11.

Revelation 11:13  ‘At that very hour there was a severe earthquake and a tenth of the city collapsed. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake and the survivors were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.’

The collapse of Jerusalem will be devastating. Those who sought to hurt God’s precious city and His beloved people will have made a foolish move. Many will perish for their sins.

But yet there will be a remnant who will have met with the God of heaven in the earthquake. They will be on their knees in repentance.

There is no reason to doubt that this is a literal description of days to come. 

But yet there is a spirit message here for all of us. May I suggest that:

Covid is not the end of our problems. This is just the beginning of our birth-pains. There are more earth-quake scenarios, in different shapes and sizes, to come.

And there will be survivors, who will turn up at our door and they will be terrified. They will have met with the God of heaven and they will need to be comforted and brought through into salvation. 

As a people, may we stand firm in the midst of the earthquake, in the midst of the world falling about us, that we might be of comfort to those in need. 

Luke 21:25  ‘There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’

The Church age began with Peter preaching an earthquake of a sermon in Jerusalem. 

Acts 2:41  ‘Those who accepted his message were baptised, and about three thousand were added to their numbers.’

The Church age will end with a similar explosion.

Revelation 11:13  ‘At that very hour there was a severe earthquake and a tenth of the city collapsed. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake and the survivors were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.’

Hasten the day…

Maranatha!

  • Revelation 16:1 Painful Sores
    And so we enter into a grim and melancholy chapter. There is little cheer to be found here. Those who have taken the mark of the beast, hoping to find some form of reward or relief, and having surrendered their soul to the worship of the beast in some shape or form, now find themselves reaping a bitter harvest of ugly and painful sores. 
  • Revelation 15:8 Holiness
    Please click image and scroll down to see full picture. Once again, these precious verses remind us that God moves in heavenly righteousness. The seven angels are dressed in robes of perfect holiness and they carry the seven plagues that will purge and cleanse this corrupted world. The temple is filled with the glory of God as He brings perfect holiness and righteousness to bear down on this earth. 
  • Revelation 15:3 A Deeper Understanding
    Please click image to reaf full post and scroll down. If you struggle with the horror of Revelation then you are certainly not alone. The absolute horror reflects the weight of sin that has corrupted man to the core.  But as we embrace these sacred truths, they will bring us deeper, far deeper than ever before, into an understanding of the heart, into an understanding of the perfect holiness of God. 
  • Revelation 15:3 Moses and Jesus
    Please tap image to see full post The mention of both Moses and Jesus the Lamb in the same sentence strengthens the idea that Jesus will be the perfect Moses, who will deliver Israel, imprisoned or exiled by the antichrist and lead them victoriously back to Jerusalem. 
  • Revelation 15:1 Glass and Fire
    The bitterness of martyrdom gives way to eternal celebration. Their victory has always been dependent upon the strength that God provides and this is reflected in the harps given to them by God.  And what a glorious celebration. The enemy has been defeated and the bowls of wrath will bring this evil age to a conclusion. The joy of eternity awaits! 

One response to “Revelation 11 pt 14”

  1. Well done, Mike.

    “Covid is not the end of our problems. This is just the beginning of our birth-pains. There are more earth-quake scenarios, in different shapes and sizes, to come.” I absolutely agree.

    And I appreciate your application. When these terrible events occur, more and more people will be searching for “spiritual” answers. Believers must be prepared to provide those answers.
