About 63 months (5.25 years) ago, a piece was published at ETPR titled, Best Prophetic Bible Chapters on the End Times.
We very recently decided to UPDATE that piece, as well as ADD some additional information. This information should prove EXTREMELY helpful to ANY who are looking for information about the last days before the return of Jesus Christ.
Instead of limiting the topic to one chapter of a Book from God’s Word, it was decided to broaden the scope of this piece and include WHOLE BOOKS–wherever applicable–from the Bible. ALSO, instead of merely LISTING those chapters judged to be prophetic, it was decided to go a bit deeper, information-wise.
And so, we start off this 2021 version by discussing THE BOOK OF REVELATION.
1- THE BOOK OF REVELATION
The Book of Revelation is more properly called THE BOOK OF THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST–as explained in the Book’s first two verses.
“The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.”
Revelation 1:3 promises a blessing to all those who, not only READ, but KEEP, the words of Revelation’s prophecy.
“Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.”
Revelation is thus the only book in God’s Word to promise such a blessing to those who read and keep it. Revelation offers NOT ONLY ONE, BUT TWO such blessings.
“Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.”
Those who control the pulpits of he tares who inhabit the churches insist that Revelation contains such mysteries and highly-symbolic language, that NO ONE is intended to understand the Book of Revelation.
But this is NOT true: the book itself is UNSEALED [meaning it IS to be read and understood by those reading the book].
“And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.”
(The reader may contrast the Book of Revelation–which is UNSEALED–with the Book of Daniel’s (another prophetic book in the Bible) which is (or was) SEALED–until right before Jesus Christ returns.
“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.”
IF the reader is interested in learning the many varied and HIGHLY DETAILED prophecies in the BOOK OF REVELATION, each of the chapters of the book deal with a particular theme.
Chapter 2 & 3 – An account of what Jesus Christ had to say to each of the seven churches in Asia Minor. These churches mirror modern churches (and their problems).
Chapter 4-7 – An account of John’s spiritual transport to heaven and the opening by Jesus of the Seven Seals.
Chapter 8-11 – The seven trumpet judgments against the earth; the account of the Two Witnesses in Jerusalem.
Chapter 12-14 – Various end times events described in detail for the reader. Included is Chapter 13, a HIGHLY DESCRIPTIVE account of events leading to the return of Jesus Christ.
Chapter 15 & 16 – The Seven Bowls (Vials) of God’s Wrath being poured out on a world which largely REJECTS God and His Son, Jesus Christ.
Chapter 17 – The Whore of Babylon (an end times nation not otherwise described), the actions of the Whore and the Whore’s judgment.
Chapter 18- The judgment of Babylon itself.
Chapter 19 – The return of Jesus Christ and Armageddon.
Chapter 20 – Jesus’ 1000-year reign described.
Chapter 21 – A New Heaven, a New Earth and A New Jerusalem.
Chapter 22- Conclusion of the chapter. Some sports fans might describe Chapter 22 as the “Post-game wrap-up.”
The Book of Revelation is placed FIRST here because IF the reader has ONLY one Biblical Book to study (and from which to gather information about the last days), he could do no worse than study the Book of Revelation.
The Book of Revelation is also placed FIRST because it is the ONLY book in God’s Word which was primarily authored by Jesus Christ (as given to His apostle, John).
The other choices for the reader to locate reliable information for the last days will be presented in Part Two of this study.
HAS the reader looked for information about the last days from UNRELIABLE sources?
IF the reader has explored UNRELIABLE (other than what is declared in God’s Word) sources of information, he should KNOW that this info is HIGHLY suspect and UNRELIABLE.
It is not YET too late: there is still a little time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?
THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
