The second and third angels’ messages of Revelation are a warning to all who do not heed the divine call of the first angel’s message.

The heart of the book of Revelation is about worship. While the dragon, the beast from the sea, and the beast from the earth (often called “the false trinity”) join forces to unite the world in worshiping them (see Rev. 13:4, 8, 12, 15; 14:9, 11), God calls the human race to worship the Creator … [Click to read more …]

Read Revelation 10. What is the message of the angel with the little scroll? What does it mean to “prophesy again”?

1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue, and while he thought he was finding a short cut to India what he found was a whole “new world.” Now granted, the millions of people already living there already knew about it, and there is evidence of visitors well before Columbus. Still that does not change the point … [Click to read more …]
