The lesson on March 20, 2016 was part 15 of “The Apocalypse” study.  Wayne gave a commentary of the book “The Fire That Consumes: A Biblical and Historical Study of the Doctrine of Final Punishment, Third Edition” by Edward William Fudge in which he has been reading and likes the conclusions the author makes in relation to the “Man, His Nature and Destiny” study (which led into this study in Revelation).  This lesson looks at the trumpets and vials and takes not of the partial judgement that is dispensed with 1/3 being the emphasis but it get more serious with the last three which are called “woe” trumpets.  After the trumpets comes the vials which brings all of the wrath of God.  We learned that the bottomless pit or abyss is a place reserved for the devil and his angels because there is no mention that man is sent there.  The scripture reading was from Revelation 8:7-13 KJV

“7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. 8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; 9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed. 10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; 11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter. 12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise. 13 And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!”
