The lesson on March 6, 2016 was part 13 of “The Apocalypse” study. Wayne reviewed the previous lesson where we recapped the seven seals (six of which were in Revelation 6). Today we studied the little group, the 144,000 and the great multitude and saw that all of these groups are related to Israel. The confirmation that all of Revelation is very Jewish and if we try to apply what is in Revelation to events in our age, we will have a royal mess on our hands. We looked at passages from the prophets and saw how the were in conjunction with what is being revealed in Revelation because in the promises of Israel were very visible and totally apply with the Old Testament prophets. The age in which we live in after Acts 28 was not visible in scriptures because it was hidden in God before the foundation of the world and was revealed through the Apostle PAul in Ephesians, Phlippians and Colossians (including Titus, Philemon, 1 Timothy and 2 Timothy). The scripture reading as from Jeremiah 30:1-7 KJV
Jeremiah 30:1-7 KJV
1 The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying, 2 Thus speaketh the Lord God of Israel, saying, Write thee all the words that I have spoken unto thee in a book. 3 For, lo, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the Lord: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it. 4 And these are the words that the Lord spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah. 5 For thus saith the Lord; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. 6 Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? Therefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness? 7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.
