The Road to Armageddon (Revelation 16:1-16)
Scripture: Revelation 16:1-16
Eric Douma returns after a brief hiatus to continue teaching from the book of Revelation. Previous classes on the Seals, Trumpets and brings us finally to the Bowl Judgments in Revelations 16.
In today's class we discussed and dismissed the preterist and historical views of prophetical fulfillment in favor of the futurist view. The Broad Day of the Lord (leading to Eternity) was compared Narrow Day of the Lord (24-hour day that comes without sign and with no warning). Eric also discussed the various theories on the location of the final battle of Armageddon, including where he believes Babylon to be located.
Our behavior is evidence of what we believe to be true. Eric emphasized the crucial importance of guarding our conduct so that we may be found in the faith when Christ returns.
Eric recommended reading Dr Thomas Ice articles concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog from Revelation 20. Here are links to the pertinent articles:
