November 7, 2021 – All People Praise God

Alternate Title – United in Praise

Alternate Title #2 – Together in Praise


Bible Lesson:
Revelation 7:9-17 KJV


The key verse:
Revelation 7:14 (KJV) - "And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb."

What shall we learn from this lesson:

Revelation is a book that allows us to have a glimpse into the world and into Heaven during the end times. Chapters 6-19 cover a period call Tribulation in which God's wrath is poured out, resulting in calamity, destruction, and much suffering by the unbelievers.

The Tribulation will wake up the nation of Israel to the fact that time is growing short to come to Christ. It will shake up the unbelievers of the great price they will pay if they do not come to Christ. It will start giving the world what it needs in order to be ready for the 1000-year Reign of Jesus. In other words, the world is starting to be put in the proper order.

This is a time when God will complete His discipline of Israel but it shall also be a time of great revival; there will be many who come to know the Lord. Many will come out of the Tribulation as believers and will "wash their robes" in the blood of the Lamb and their robes will then be white. Their sins will be put aside.

And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Revelation 7:14 KJV

Then there were four angels poised to bring more destruction but they were told to wait until the servants of God could be sealed. The number that were sealed was 144,000 who all came from the tribes of Israel.

Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, saying, "Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads." Rev 7:2-3 KJV

And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed Rev 7:4 KJV

Many theologians believe the 144,000 will be called upon to serve the Lord by being evangelists who will bring others to Christ while there is still time. Many of the great multitude (Rev 7:9) will come to Christ as a result of the ministry of the 144,000. However, eventually, the time for conversion will expire and the opportunity to come to Christ will be gone.

There will be so many converts that came out of the Tribulation that they could not be counted. They shall be from all nations. Discrimination based on race or ethnicity is not there.

This will be the greatest revival the world has ever seen. Those in the white robes will have palms in their hands signifying the victory over sin and Satan accomplished by Jesus, the Lamb, who sacrificed His life on the cross for humankind.

After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; Revelation 7:9 KJV

One notable thing that occurred in Revelation 7 is that in the midst of God's wrath there is a lull, and we see mercy by God, praise by the multitude, and Jesus, the Lamb, caring for them:

Mercy and love: For the Lamb on the throne will be their Shepherd. He will lead them to springs of life-giving water. And God will wipe every tear from their eyes.
Revelation 7:17 NLT

Praise: All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying: "Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom, Thanksgiving and honor and power and might, Be to our God forever and ever. Amen.
Revelation 7:11-12 KJV

Even in the midst of the Day of the Lord, we see that the precepts of praise, mercy, and love endure. But why would anyone wait until such a time as the Tribulation before committing to the Lord? Why not do it now before the agony and destruction while there is still time?

November 14, 2021 – Praise for God's Eternal Reign

Alternate Title – God of Power

Bible Lesson: Revelation 11:15-19 KJV


The key verse:
Revelation 11:15 (KJV) - "And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever."

(Pop-up references come from The New Living Translation courtesy of Faithlife Reftagger)


What shall we learn from this lesson:

While on the isle of Patmos, John was told by a loud voice to write this revelation that came from Jesus Christ of which God had given Him (Rev 1:1). This was presented to John by an angel and was the testimony of Jesus Christ. The letter of Revelation was written to the seven churches that were in Asia Minor (Revelation 1:11).

To understand where we are in the lesson reference Scripture, we must first review some previous events in the book of Revelation.

Revelation is mostly predictive prophecy - events that will happen in the future. It gives us a glimpse into the world and into Heaven during the end-times. John is told to write down what he has seen both the things that were then happening and the things that will happen (Rev 1:19).

Revelation is a book that gives the Lord's servants an assurance that one day they will be delivered from the hands of the evil forces that were then persecuting them.

Unfortunately, John would also write the details of many terrifying events that must happen first. These terrifying events occur during the period called the Tribulation. Jesus spoke of the tribulation the world would have to endure in Matthew 24:

For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. Matthew 24:21 KJV

These events, even though terrifying, have a dual purpose, one of which is beneficial. The first purpose is to condemn and punish the unbelievers. The second purpose is to prepare the believers for the coming of Christ.

This preparation includes the believers also having to endure terrifying events. But their endurance will serve to strengthen them, sanctify them, and purify them.

As a basic metaphoric example of what is meant by this statement, consider two people who are sent through the same physical exercise routine involving lifting heavy weights and other taxing exercises. In this metaphor, the unbelievers will end up with back trouble, torn muscles, and bad knee and hip joints. But the believers will end with impressive muscles and a strong countenance. Even though they both had to endure the same exercises, the result will help one gain strength while the other will suffer deterioration.

There is a scroll held in the hand of He who sits on the throne which reveals God's plan of redemption and judgment. As the scroll is rolled open to reveal more of its contents there are seven seals which each has to be opened. As it is progressed through opening the seals, more of the content is revealed.

There will be seven seals, seven trumpets, and seven bowls which together represent three series of end-time judgments from God. These judgments get increasingly horrifying as the end-times progress.

The only one worthy to open the seals is Jesus Christ (the slain Lamb of God). Before the opening of the seals is completed, a series of disasters and catastrophes is announced, such as terrible weather events, or rivers turning into blood, or stars falling from the heavens, or a devastating earthquake. These are announced following when each trumpet is blown by an angel. Thus we call them trumpet judgments.

The opening of the seventh seal introduces the seven trumpet judgments. Our lesson Scripture for today is concerned with when the seventh and final trumpet is blown.

But in this case, the announcement is not for a disaster to occur. It announces that the kingdoms of the world have now become the kingdoms of God and Christ. The rejection of evil is complete.

Spontaneous loud praise and worship erupted in heaven. The 24 elders sitting on their thrones before God are moved to lie prostrate and give thanks to the eternal Lord (Rev 11:16). Rev 11:19 (NASB) describes the scene in Heaven:

And the temple of God which is in heaven was opened; and the ark of His covenant appeared in His temple, and there were flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder, and an earthquake, and a great hailstorm. Rev 11:19 NASB

We believe the pattern of the Temple and Tabernacle were copies of the actual Temple in Heaven. That is why the Lord told Moses to, "make everything according to the pattern I have shown you here on the mountain." (Exodus 25:40 NLT).

Jesus does not return to earth at this time but it sets the stage for the return and it heightens the anticipation of the end when Jesus' thousand-year reign will begin. This we will see in chapter 20.

November 21, 2021 – Rejoicing in Heaven

Alternate Title – Marriage of the Lamb

Alternate Title #2 – God Deserves the Praise

Bible Lesson: Revelation 19:1-8 KJV


The key verse:
Revelation 19:7 (KJV) - "Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready."

(Pop-up references come from The New Living Translation courtesy of Faithlife Reftagger)


What shall we learn from this lesson:

Chapter 19 is concerned with the events that John hears and those that he sees. Our reference text (verses 1-8) is about what he hears happening in Heaven. That is the focus of our discussion for today.

In verse 1 of Chapter 19 (KJV), John says, "And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God." So John heard rejoicing going on in Heaven. Our first question is why is there such rejoicing going on at this particular time?

The answer to this question is rooted in the first part of that verse where he says, "After these things I heard..."

So, our next question is, "What are the things to which he is referring?" "We will discover that "these things" are in reference to the destruction of ways of the world as expressed in the previous chapters 17 and 18.

When we speak of worldly behavior, or the ways of the world, we are talking about the temptations of the world being the driving focus behind our actions.

Whether it is lustful desires or the desire for money, power, or domination, the want of worldly things represents a driving force that excludes the love of the Lord as the primary focus.

This is all symbolized with reference to the city of Babylon. It is the symbol of what is bad in the spiritual world and the physical world.
Let us refer to the following Scripture from Chapter 18.

1."After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illumined with his glory.

2. "And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, "Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird.

3. "For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality." Rev 18:1-3 NASB.

We know the actual old city of Babylon was defeated in 539 BC. The Babylon spoken of here in Revelation represents the wider scope of Babylonian-like attitudes and sins, some of which were described above in Rev 18:1-3 NASB.

The ways of Babylon were those of arrogance and self-importance. Idol worship, commercialism, and self-centeredness were the controlling values of the city. They did not recognize God as being in control of their destiny.

The Babylonian-like attitudes and practices will be or have been defeated at that time. Thus, as a result, John heard the great celebration going on in Heaven.

Alleluia (or its equivalent) is mentioned four times in our eight reference verses (Rev 19:1-8 NASB) that reflect the great rejoicing and celebrating going on in Heaven because the time of the Lord's judgment and justice has arrived. These four times are the only times alleluia appears in the New Testament.

In the context of our lesson, Alleluia, Hallelujah, and "Praise the Lord" have the same meaning. Some translations use Alleluia; some use Hallelujah; others use Praise the Lord.

The statement in verse 1, "Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God", is both a statement of praise to the glory of God, and a statement of the finality of the truth, for He in fact does hold all salvation, glory, honour, and power in His hands. He is in charge and in control.

Then there was another great event that caused enormous and loud rejoicing in Heaven. That event was the marriage of the Lamb to the Church. This would happen in concert with Christ returning to receive His church.

The book of Revelation shows preparation for the second coming of Christ. Evil behavior is judged and removed and unbelievers are given a final opportunity to convert.

One of the most important functions of Chapter 19 is announcing the second coming of Christ and describing the rejoicing that goes along with Christ receiving unto Himself the Church.

Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. Rev 19:7-8 KJV

We are all familiar with the first coming of Christ which we celebrate as Christmas. It has great rejoicing, customs, and traditions as we celebrate the arrival of baby Jesus.

He was later referred to as the Lamb of God. The lamb was used as a sacrificial animal in ancient Israel that would be killed on the altar to atone for the sins of the Israelites.

Jesus, the son of God, was God's perfect sacrifice who died on the cross to atone for our sins that made it possible for us to have eternal life if we believe in Him. John the Baptist referred to Jesus as The Lamb of God in John 1:29 and 1:36. Peter referred to Christ as the sacrificial Lamb who paid the price to atone for our sins in 1 Peter 1:18-21.

Because Jesus was sacrificed by God to atone for our sins He was referred to as the Lamb in Revelation. His death and resurrection ushered in a new covenant between the people and God.

The symbolism used in this chapter is important. As we can see, Christ is symbolized by the Lamb (the Lamb of God) and the church is symbolized by the bride (wife in some translations). Chapter 19 announces the marriage of the Lamb to the bride.

The Scripture says the bride will be adorned in fine white linen representative of the righteousness of the saints.

...Fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. Rev 19:8 KJV

Those in the church have had their sins cleansed by the blood of Jesus and all are now saints and righteous.

This is a good time to discuss the symbolism and parallels we can find in comparing the old Hebrew marriage customs and traditions to the marriage of Christ to the Church.

During the course of research, there will be some minor variations depending on the source of the research but the basic framework is consistent. We can realize that the process of Christ's marriage to the church can be symbolically represented by Jewish marriage traditions.

Hebrew (Jewish) Marriage traditions:

1. Betrothal period: The first step is betrothal which is a promise to marry. The closest analogy in the western world is what we might call an engagement but the betrothal carries much greater weight.

The marriage could have been pre-arranged between the two fathers involved with the father of the son paying the father of the bride a negotiated price which would be considered a dowry.

This could also be initiated by the bridegroom getting permission from the father of the bride for the marriage and then paying a negotiated price for the bride or what some would also say is a dowry.

Once this is paid, the marriage covenant (the formal agreement) is declared effective or established.

Once the marriage covenant is established and vows exchanged, they were considered to be on the level of husband and wife but they would remain separated with no intimacy while the groom goes away to prepare the home in which he and his bride will live. This period is usually about one year.

In ancient Israel, this home in many cases would simply be an extension to the groom's father's house that the groom would build himself.

2. Groom returns for his bride: The second phase of the marriage process is when the groom returns for His bride. This is usually at night with the bride not knowing the exact time of his arrival. He just shows up with his entourage and the bride, with her attendants, would join with them and the whole wedding party would return to the father's house.

3. The marriage ceremony and feast: The marriage would be consummated during this period and a great banquet and celebration would go on for 7 days.


Now let us look at how this Jewish marriage process symbolizes the marriage of Christ and the Church:

1. Betrothal period: This is the period we are living in right now.

We are in the time when we are waiting for the imminent return of Jesus to receive His bride - the church. We have to be ready when He returns. We have to be anticipating His return because we are the bride.

2. The Groom returns for His bride: Jesus will appear in the sky and take His bride back with Him to His Father's house. This is the Rapture.

After the Rapture will come a terrible time of tribulation and Judgment on earth. Things on earth will get worse and worse as the Judgments are realized.

3. The marriage and Feast: In Heaven, there is a great celebration when the time of the wedding supper has come. This loud celebration that John heard in verses 6 and 7 of Chapter 19 is because of the anticipation of the marriage and wedding supper:

"And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

"Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready."
Revelation 19:6-7 KJV.

The Scripture says the wife hath made herself ready. This means it is our responsibility and privilege to be ready on the inside when He comes for us.

That's our responsibility -- the inside. We have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior ... on the inside. We want to spend eternity with Him ... on the inside. Peter said the following:

So you must live as God's obedient children. Don't slip back into your old ways of living to satisfy your own desires. You didn't know any better then.

But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy.

For the Scriptures say, "You must be holy because I am holy
." 1 Peter 1:14-16 NLT

The bride's gown has always been one of the central attractions in any wedding. The wedding guests greatly anticipate the first glimpse of what she is wearing. Revelation 19:8 gives the following description of what the bride has been given to wear in the marriage ceremony to the Lamb:

She has been given the finest of pure white linen to wear.” For the fine linen represents the good deeds of God’s holy people. Revelation 19:8 NLT

The bride is adorned in the finest of pure white linen which she was given to wear. She did not buy it; it was given to her as salvation is given to us through the blood of Christ and by the grace of God.

But she has made herself readyon the inside.

This ends the lesson for today. For further study, the second coming of Christ to the earth begins with Revelation 19:11. It is God's wake-up call to an unbelieving world.

November 28, 2021 – Good News for All

Bible Lesson: Acts 10:34-47 KJV


The key verses:
Acts 10:34-35 (KJV) - "Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him."

(Pop-up references come from The New Living Translation courtesy of Faithlife Reftagger)


What shall we learn from this lesson:

The Merriam-Webster dictionary has a very appropriate definition of Gospel: "Good News." It is said that the word gospel can be loosely defined as "good news."

It would be surprising to hear of anyone who has been a Christian for a significant period of time not having heard the phrase "Good News." But there would be some Christians that would struggle to define what that phrase meant.

Our reference Scripture for today's lesson lists attributes of the Good News that Peter pronounced. After reading what he had to say below, we will know how to define the Good News when we are called upon to do so.

The Good News from Peter's sermon:

As Peter was saying these things, the gift of the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who were listening to the message; both Jews and Gentiles.

The Jewish believers were amazed that the Gentiles there also began speaking in other tongues and praising God reflecting the power of the Holy Spirit (Acts 10:46).

Peter made the following inclusive statement about the Gentiles:

"Can anyone object to their being baptized, now that they have received the Holy Spirit just as we did?" (Acts 10:47)

There is a new covenant between God and humankind. For those who believe and declare Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, all their sins are forgiven by the grace of God through the sacrificial blood of Jesus on the cross. The Good News of Jesus Christ is that this new covenant is now established between God and all of humankind.

December 5, 2021 – Justice and Obedience to the Law

Alternate Title – Justice and Obedience

Bible Lesson: Deuteronomy 5:1-3; 10:12-13; 27:1-10 KJV


The key verses:
Deuteronomy 10:12-13 (KJV) - "And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul, To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good?."

(Pop-up references come from The New Living Translation courtesy of Faithlife Reftagger)


What shall we learn from this lesson:

The book of Deuteronomy can be seen as serving several purposes. Moses had led the Israelites for many years and it was time for him to die and turn over the leadership role to Joshua. So the book can be seen as servings as a farewell address to the people and also as anointing Joshua as the new leader.

Some parts of Deuteronomy (including our reference test) also serve as somewhat of a "booster shot." Today we have vaccinations to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. In general, we have the first doses and then we also have a booster shot. Using this vernacular, Moses' "booster shot" was encouragement and a reminder for the people to not only remember their covenant responsibilities to God but also to live by them.

Moses had seen what the wrath of God could be like when the people did not follow God's desires. Therefore he knew how important it was for them to love and obey the Lord. Some examples follow:

Because of these and other examples of the failure of the people to do as God desires, Moses knew how dangerous things could develop and so he warned them to obey the Lord's commandments:

"So you must obey the LORD your God by keeping all these commands and decrees that I am giving you today."
Deut 27:10

Some of the Israelites would be able to remember the events when the Law was first given to them at Mount Sinai but there are others that were too young to remember. Many had died by then because God had made them wander in the wilderness for 40 years because of disobedience and lack of faith.

Moses emphasized that the Law was not just for the generation who first received it, but was also for the present generation (Deut 5:3).

This was especially needed because they would soon be entering the Promised Land of Canaan. Even though God has promised them the land, they will still have to fight for it and defeat the inhabitants.

To do this, they would need God to be with them. Therefore, understanding and obeying the commandments of their covenant responsibilities would be of utmost importance.

And you must always obey the LORD 's commands and decrees that I am giving you today for your own good"







December 12, 2021 – David Administers Justice and Kindness

Alternate Title – Justice and Kindness

Bible Lesson: 2 Samuel 9:1-12 KJV


The key verse:
2 Samuel 9:1 (KJV) - "And David said, Is there yet any that is left of the house of Saul, that I may shew him kindness for Jonathan's sake?"

(Pop-up references come from The New Living Translation courtesy of Faithlife Reftagger)


What shall we learn from this lesson:

This lesson is about friendship, honor, and respect. It reminds us of why some people are remembered and honored, even after death. Their name lives on through monuments, memorials, and awards that tell the story of how their life mattered to grateful people or even to just one grateful person.

It never hurts to show kindness to someone. Because of the example of a single kind act, a new kindness could be shown to someone else or to many people. Some might call this, "paying it forward."

David and Jonathan had an undying friendship and respect for each other. Even though Jonathan and his father, King Saul, had died, King David wanted to honor his friend Jonathan in some significant way.

One day David asked, "Is anyone in Saul's family still alive—anyone to whom I can show God's kindness for Jonathan's sake?" (2 Sam 9:1).

As it turned out, one of Saul's servants, Ziba, knew of one of Jonathan's sons, Mephibosheth, who was still alive. When he discovered that one of Jonathan's sons was still alive, David wanted to show great kindness to him for the sake and memory of his friend Jonathan. David called it "God's kindness."

God had shown David great kindness for he was chosen to be king by God who had taken him from being a shepherd to being a great military leader and king of all of Israel. God said that David was a man after His own heart (Acts 13:22 NIV).

God's kindness was something Mephibosheth could use since he was crippled in both feet (2 Samuel 9:3). Ironically, he became crippled as a result of an accident when his nurse had tried to hide him after the news of the death of Saul and Jonathan in battle. (2 Samuel 4:4 NLT).

The nurse had acted prudently since, with the death of the King and his son, Mephibosheth was in danger since he was next in line to be king. Quite often in such a situation, the new dynasty would seek to kill other heirs who might be in line to be king ahead of them. Rightly so, King David could have seen Mephibosheth as a threat to his claim of the thrown.

We should all be grateful to God for the life we now enjoy, the mercy He has shown us, and for the forgiveness of our sins. Most of us can also remember someone in our past who helped us us in a great way.

Because we owe so much to God for what He has done for us, we should feel good when we show kindness to someone in need. We should also feel good to honor the memory of those who God put in our life to help us when we were in need.

We should want to be God's instrument to help others who are in need. This adds substance to what is meant by "God's kindness." Every good and perfect gift comes from God (James 1:17 NIV).

Jesus explained that being kind to others is like being kind to Him in the parable of the Sheep and the Goats (Matt 25:31-46). In this parable, we can understand His meaning was helping others is like helping Him:

"...I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!" Matt 25:40 NLT
