Rev. 11:15-19                    THE EDGE OF ETERNITY

Intro:  In Chapters 6-11, we have studied the events of the great tribulation.  In 

chapters 12-19, we will be covering the same ground again.  Except, this time, we will 

see a different slant on things.  Same scenes different angle.  v.15-19 are a summary 

statement.  A syllabus, if you will, of the events that will lead up to the dawn of 

eternity.  Folk, one day, time will cease to exist!  We will step from this time oriented 

world into an era that is not affected by time.  Letís look into the events that will lead 

to the edge.



  I.  v.15               THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE REIGN OF CHRIST

    A.  Jesus will not actually take the throne until 19:11

    B.  Kingdoms - Now belong to Satan, he controls every government in the world!

	(Matt. 4:8-10).  But, one day soon, they will belong to Jesus!  Imagine a world 

	controlled by the Holy Son of God!

    	1.  In Power - (Rev. 19:11-16)  (Ill. The Queen of England!)

    C.  Eternal - This King will never abdicate, die or be dethroned! (Psa. 145:13)

    D.  Is Jesus King in your life?  There are two kinds, which is HE?

	1.  Totalitarian Monarch

	2.  Constitutional Monarch - (Ill. England)



 II.  v.16-19         THE ADORATION OF THE REDEEMED OF CHRIST

    A.  v.16-17  The 24 elders, representing the redeemed of Christ, burst into song.  

	They praise Him because He has retaken what is rightfully His!  (Ill. He has also 

	answered the prayer of the ages - Matt. 6:10)

    B.  Nations Were Angry - The rebellion in man vents itís hatred toward God! (Ill. 

	Trying to kill the Jews!)

    C.  They Wrath Is Come - Rom. 1:18ff  During the last 3 1/2 years, Godís wrath 

	will pour itself in torrents upon the earth.  (Ill. This isnít a milquetoast God!  Heb 

	12:29)

    D.  The Time Of The Dead -

	1.  Resurrections - 20:4; 20:12

	2.  Judgments - Rev. 20:11-15  (Ill. Judgment will come to all men who reject 

	     Jesus!)

    E.  Rewards - O.T. Saints and Tribulation Saints.  All of Godís People will be 

	rewarded!  All the Pauls and Peters, and even the rest of us too! Rev. 22:12

    F.  Destroy the Destroyers - Satan, every demon and every person who followed 

	him will be cast into the lake of fire - Rev. 20:10

   G.  Temple - Jewish ground, the church has no temple!

	Opened - Access  (Ill. The old days!)

	Ark - 2nd. Most important article of worship in the Jewish religion.

	There are 5 names for the Ark in Scripture and they all speak to what the Lord 

	is doing!

	1.  Ark of Covenant (Num 10:33) Contained the Law - Godís Law has been 

	  	     transgressed and He is angry.

	2.  Ark of Testimony (Ex. 25:22) Testified to Godís holiness and manís sin.

	     God is still holy and man is still a sinner!

	3.  The Ark of God (1 Sam. 3:3)  It was the only visible throne of God

	     God is still on His throne!

	4.  The Ark of Strength (Psalm 132:8)  Because of miracles and works 

	     associated with it.  God is still in power!

	5.  The Holy Ark (2 Chron. 35:3)  Because it is where God dwelt!

	     God is still alive and well!

    H.  All of these things are to encourage the Jewish people in the midst of their 

	trials.Iíll tell you, this also encourages me!

     I.  Lightenings, etc - Speak of the horrors that are ahead!



Conc:  Time is running out!  We must be motivated to reach our generation for Jesus!
