Three Woes Declared

(Read Part 36) To recap what we saw last time, the Apostle John has already laid out the seven seal judgments and the first four trumpet judgments that will result in the deaths of more than one fourth of the world’s population, under devastating worldwide conditions. The thought that might come to mind at this point is, "How could it get any worse?" Yet, John now reveals that the past judgments pale in severity compared to the judgments he is ready to reveal. [...]

Three Woes Described

(Read Part 35) Review—Introspective Challenge of the Judgment The six seal judgments (see Rev. 6) and the first four trumpet judgments (Rev. 8:1-12) will wreak havoc on the heavens and the earth in the future tribulation period. The Apostle John has yet to reveal the most horrific judgments that God will impose on those refusing to repent of their sin and turn in faith to the Lord Jesus Christ. In this new article and the next, we will examine the three woes pronounced [...]

The Fourth Trumpet Judgment

(Read Part 34) Introduction The old adage, “If I had a nickel for every time I heard someone say that, I would be a rich person,” certainly applies to the many times friends and family members have stated to me that the lack of sunlight for a long stretch of dark and gloomy weather makes them feel lethargic—and even depressed. God reveals in the fourth trumpet judgment that a major change will one day take place with the sun, moon and stars: [...]

The Third Trumpet Judgment

(Read Part 33) One Third of Rivers and Water The Apostle John reveals that not only will God allow the destruction of one third of the seas, but also of the rivers and springs by causing them to become lethally bitter as Wormwood. In Scripture, wormwood represents Divine punishment associated with bitterness and sorrow (cf. Jer. 9:15; 23:15; Lam. 3:15). Revelation 8:10-11 states: Then the third angel sounded: And a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell [...]

The Second Trumpet Judgment

(Read Part 32) Last time we looked at the first of seven trumpet judgments, as illustrated by this chart: This week we turn out attention to the next judgment that follows this first one. Introduction The human body contains approximately 78 percent water at birth, with adult males dropping to 65 percent water and adult females 55 percent water.[1] Fresh water and nutritional food are essential for humans to survive. The oceans, rivers and springs of the world provide a large percentage of the food [...]

The First Trumpet Judgment

(Read Part 31) Introduction The world is no stranger to devastating destruction. However, the future seven-year tribulation period will bring far-reaching devastation that will destroy more land and property than has ever been experienced in history. The trumpet judgments major on the prophetic concept that God will execute the destruction of one-third of a stated item or items in the world.[1] There is no indicator in Scripture that God will confine the judgments to a specific area. All Scriptural indicators point to [...]

The Blood of Jesus

(Read Part 1) Foreshadowing Christ "The blood of bulls and goats" (Heb. 9:13; 10:4) was shed on a million occasions in the Old Testament for man the sinner. Now, what we must remember is, that the blood shed by the innocent animals in the Old Testament not only became a covering for sin before the days of the earthly ministry of Christ, but also, it became a foreshadowing of what God would do as we move through history. It foresaw what would take [...]

Going Deeper into God’s Covenant with Noah: The Third Obligation and Confirmation

By RANDY WHITE, D.Min. Founder and CEO (Read Part 12) In this article, we will complete our study of the new revelation that God gave to mankind at the inauguration of the dispensation of conscience. Once again, we note that the main portion of the covenant deals with God's obligations, which He has revealed by means of promises to mankind. God Repeats His Plan for Men and Women Genesis 9:1 and 7 provide a third obligation that mankind was to fulfill following the flood. And God blessed Noah and his [...]

Going Deeper into God’s Covenant with Noah: The Second Obligation

By RANDY WHITE, D.Min. Founder and CEO (Read Part 11) We are in the mist of considering the new revelation that God gave to govern the dispensation of conscience, and we remember that the main part of the covenant covers God's obligations. He has revealed these obligations by way of promises that He made to man. First of all, He has promised that there will never be another flood that will destroy the Earth. Last time, we considered the initial obligation that God placed upon man in the Noahic [...]

Going Deeper into God’s Covenant with Noah: The First Obligation

By RANDY WHITE, D.Min. Founder and CEO (Read Part 10) There are several obligations that are put upon man in the Noahic Covenant. Now, the main part of the covenant covers God's obligations, which He has made by way of promises to man. He has obligated Himself to the fact that He will never send another flood to destroy the Earth. God even put a scientific sign in the sky to remind everyone of His promise (cf. Gen. 9:11-17). In this post, we [...]
