Rating: All Ages

Episode: Revelation Series No. 04 Narrator: Michael Primary Scriptures: Revelation 12-20 Story Summary: The finish of the time of tribulation Location: Roman Empire, Island of Patmos Time: AD 30 Jesus crucified and resurrected; Pentecost; Holy Spirit arrives AD 48 Paul’s “famine visit” to Jerusalem; First Missionary Journey starts Council at Jerusalem AD 50 Start of Second Missionary Journey. AD 53 Start of Third Missionary Journey AD 67/68 Paul probably killed in Rome AD 85-95 John writes Revelation Suggested Memory Scriptures: Revelation 12:7-9, 12:12; 13:7-8, 13:15-17; 14:7, 14:9-10, 14:12; 15:2; 16:11; 19:5, 19:9, 19:20-21; 20:3-5, 20:10, 20:11-15 Revelation 12 is a continuation of the events of Revelation 5-11. By the end of Revelation 11, the Lamb has opened the seven seals of the scroll, the seven angels have blown their trumpets, and the two witnesses have appeared. Revelation 11 ends with the opening of God’s temple in heaven. Revelation 12 tells of a great sign in heaven with the woman and the dragon. A war breaks out between the dragon and its angels versus Michael and his angels. Though Michael is the victor, the dragon continues to torment mankind. Revelation 13 describes two beasts: one of the sea and one of the earth. This chapter contains the famous language about the mark of the beast and the number 666. Revelation 14 and 15 tell of calamities associated with various angels, while Revelation 16 describes the seven bowls of God’s wrath. Revelation 17 moves into the story of Babylon, the prostitute sitting on the scarlet beast. Like most other things in Revelation, the woman can be interpreted to mean many different things. The interpretation chosen has a big impact on the meaning of the fall of Babylon as described in Revelation 18-19. Revelation 19 and 20 describe the defeat of Satan and his minions by Jesus and His servants. The thousand-year period and the final judgments are also described. There are innumerable interpretations of Revelation. This message is probably indisputable: Jesus wants his followers to be faithful to Him no matter what and no matter how long it takes. No matter if there is persecution by the ancient Romans or Jews, or by some future governmental entity. No matter if there are natural disasters or if there is climate change. As Jesus told Peter, “Have faith in God.” Discussion Questions: 1. Based on Revelation 12:1, are the events described in 12:1-6 an actual set of occurrences or simply a sign in heaven? Does Revelation 12:5 probably refer to Jesus? 2. Revelation 12:7-9 refers to Satan and his angels. How might Satan’s angels differ from God’s angels? 3. According to Revelation 12:17, who are the woman’s children? 4. According to Revelation 13:2, what is the relationship between the dragon and the beast? How powerful will the beast be? 5. Relate the plagues of Revelation 16 to the plagues Moses sent to torment Pharaoh and Egypt. 6. Discuss Revelation 17:9-10. 7. Revelation 18 discus
