Revelation 4-6

 

Quote 1 Timothy 6:16

Why the 24 elders are church leaders; 1.The word elder is only used in the N. T. for church leaders. 2. White garments is a metaphor for the holiness of Christ imputed to Christians, 3.Crowns are the metaphors used throughout the N. T. for rewards to church leaders, 4. The church is to rule with Christ in 1 Cor.6:2-3 (quote)

 

Pics of the scroll w the seals, compare scene in Rev. 5 to Daniel 7:13-14

 

Comparison of heaven and earth: 

Heaven                                                      Earth

Beauty and glory                                     Personal ambition and selfishness

 

Continuous joy in worship                   Deception, ruthless competition

Serving God                                             Personal fame and fortune is the focus

 Anticipating the justice of God            Conflict, violence, war

All credit to God                                      Perversion, greed, corruption

All ownership to God                             My, me, mine

It’s all about God                                     It’s all about me!

 

The eschaton (end times), The Day of the Lord—quote Isa. 13:9, Zeph. 1:14-16

Quote Matt. 24:21 The great tribulation

 

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse:

White horse=the Beast, the Antichrist, 2 Thes. 2:4

Red horse=war, death and destruction

Black horse=Famine and economic depression caused by war

Pale horse=Death on a massive scale-1/4 of world’s population
