In this episode, Kirk walks us through the bowl judgments in Revelation 15:5-16:21. We consider the ways this passage communicates the outpouring of God’s righteous vengeance on the oppresses of his people and unrepentant sinful humanity.
In this episode, Dan joins Kirk to lead us through an overview of the entire section, Revelation 11:19-15:4, on the seven visions (“And I saw…” x7). First, Dan gives us some overview of the section, helping us get our bearings. And then we read through the entire passage with some commentary and drama along the way.
Kirk and Dan tackle the last 3 “and I saw” visions of Revelation 11:19-15:4. These three, along with the two visions of Revelation 14:1-13 from last week, unveil to us the “end game,” the contrasting final destinies, for those who worship the lamb vs. those who worship the beast. We are empowered for patient endurance as we look forward to the full completion and final manifestation of God’s salvation through judgment.
In this episode, Kirk and Dan cover the second monster and his mark in Revelation 13:11-18, the sealed 144,000 who sing the song of the redeemed in 14:1-5, and the message of the three angels — a message of doom and reversal for those marked by the monster — in 14:6-13.
