The Sixth Seal Judgment (Part 1)

(Read Part 26) We begin again this time with this basic chart, which shows that there are four main categories of tribulation judgments: the seal judgments, the trumpet judgments, the thunder judgments and the bowl judgments. These judgments will continue to grow more severe all during the seven-year tribulation period. Jesus spoke about the progressive nature of the tribulation judgments in His Olivet Discourse (Matt. 24-25). We continue our consideration of the distinctly dispensational doctrine of the birthing process of the theocratic millennial kingdom of Jesus Christ. Sixth Seal: A Great Earthquake And [...]

The Fifth Seal Judgment: The Martyrdom of Believers (Part 2)

(Read Part 25) As we have seen illustrated on the following chart, there are four main categories of tribulation judgments: the seal judgments, the trumpet judgments, the thunder judgments and the bowl judgments. Throughout the seven-year tribulation period these judgments will become progressively worse. Remember that Jesus discussed the progressive nature of the tribulation judgments as He taught His disciples in the Olivet Discourse (Matt. 24-25).We have been thinking about the distinctly dispensational doctrine of the birthing process of Jesus Christ’s theocratic millennial kingdom. In Part 25, we began [...]

The Fifth Seal Judgment: The Martyrdom of Believers (Part 1)

(Read Part 24) There are four main categories of tribulation judgments: the seal judgments, the trumpet judgments, the thunder judgments and the bowl judgments. These judgments will become progressively harsher during the seven-year tribulation period. As we have seen, Jesus discussed the progressive nature of the tribulation judgments as He taught His disciples in the Olivet Discourse (Matt. 24-25). The following chart is provided so that you can review the progression of these judgments in a way that may make them easier to understand: We have [...]

The Third and Fourth Seal Judgments: The Black and Pale Horses

(Read Part 23) We remind ourselves again that the four main categories of tribulation judgments are the seal judgments, the trumpet judgments, the thunder judgments and the bowl judgments. The judgments become progressively harsher during the seven-year tribulation period. Jesus discussed the progressive nature of the tribulation judgments in His powerful, prophetic instruction to His disciples in the Olivet Discourse (Matt. 24-25). Remember that you can review the progression of these judgments by studying the chart found below. We are currently in [...]

The First and Second Seal Judgments: The White and Red Horses

(Read Part 22) The four main categories of tribulation judgments are the seal judgments, the trumpet judgments, the thunder judgments and the bowl judgments. The judgments become progressively harsher during the seven-year tribulation period. Jesus discussed the progressive nature of the tribulation judgments in His powerful, prophetic instruction to His disciples in the Olivet Discourse (Matt. 24-25). You can review this progression of these judgments by means of the chart below. We will be expanding upon this distinctly dispensational doctrine of the birthing [...]

The Four Major Categories of Tribulation Judgments: Explanation

(Read Part 21) God veils the 28 judgments, which we will examine, in symbolic language that requires the faithful student of the Word of God to follow the instruction to: Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Tim. 2:15) Four Categories of Judgments The chart provides a very cursory look at the basic flow of those 28 major judgments contained in four specific categories of judgments. [...]

The Four Major Categories of Tribulation Judgments: Introduction

(Read Part 20) We last left off looking at the sheep and goats judgment, which is described in Matt. 25:41-46. Put yourself at this judgment. You are standing before the Lord Jesus Christ at the end of the tribulation period and Jesus begins to separate the true believers who received the gift of salvation during the tribulation period from those who never gave their hearts and lives to Him. Jesus asks you why He should let you into His millennial kingdom. You state [...]

The Third Temple Period: Transition from the Third to the Fourth Temple Period (Part G)

(Read Part 19) Those who reject the Lord Jesus Christ and live through the future seven-year tribulation will come face-to-face with Christ at the sheep and goats judgment, and meet with catastrophic eternal results (Matt. 25:41-46). This distinctly dispensational doctrinal truth should motivate today’s Christians to proclaim actively the gospel of the grace of God. If the rapture of the church-age saints happens in our lifetime, those of our family members and friends who to date have refused to trust the Lord [...]

The Third Temple Period: Transition from the Third to the Fourth Temple Period (Part F)

(Read Part 18) The Granting of Rewards to the Righteous (Continued) (Matt. 25:34-40) Now the King addresses the sheep and utters extremely comforting and exciting words, “Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world” (Matt. 25:34). The identification of those on the right hand now expands to calling them “you blessed of My Father.” The specific works of the person, as good and righteous as they may have been, are not what [...]

The Third Temple Period: Transition from the Third to the Fourth Temple Period (Part E)

(Read Part 17) How will God determine which individual Gentile people, who survive the future seven-year tribulation period, will enter His 1,000-year millennial kingdom? A cursory examination of the critical passage, Matthew 25:31-46, could produce a disastrous conclusion. Therefore, a proper interpretation of the passage requires the application of the main principles of Bible interpretation. This includes the historical, contextual, grammatical and literal interpretation of the Bible, all necessary tools for a distinctly dispensational and accurate conclusion. Before we consider that proper [...]
