The real Roger city viewer heaven born you'll be heaven and homophobes is and we're going to be leaving here you say pastor that sounds so supernatural, you've got it.

Now remember, will manage an eternity that could happen today.

My advice for you did right or get left he's coming if you heaven born to be heaven bound welcome to love featuring profound truth. Simply stated, the message Adrian Rogers part one of today's message. We began analyzing Revelation 1 find that this book is the unveiling of Jesus Christ when he comes again.

We will see him in a different way than we've seen him before. Our purpose as his servants is to understand the mysteries of Scripture because we love our master. If you have your Bible turn Revelation chapter 1 as Adrian Rogers delivers part two of living on the edge of eternity finalize the Bible book of the Revelation turned to them and open it up to chapter 1. The reason I'm asking you to do that is I want you to be blessed.

This is blessing will be one blessing. Here is a formula for blessing. The book of Revelation is often ignored, sometimes debated and sometimes discounted but God says this is a blessing book if you want to blessing God says here is read it and hated your joy that I have a blessing to be blessed when number one you can understand Mr. history from this world is not made sense apart from the book of the Revelation and what God reveals here because the book the Revelation, we learn what is the Mr. history. What is God doing God is moving all things to purpose and that purpose put down Revelation chapter 11 verse 15 don't turned it right in the margin and it says the kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord and his Christ. Now how we got understandable to the Revelation. Thank God there's a golden key that opens this book to us and is verse 19 look at it that the apostle John his own. The Alcatraz of his day are the devil violent of is that he's been there is the island of Patmos is therefore preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ and they thought that they were going to somehow shut him up and hide them away. The biggest blessing ever came this world was all John going to Patmos because they have a God gave him the book of the Revelation there was John there and he's there in the spirit of the Lord's day and look you will in verse 19 here is the commission that God gave to John here was John's assignment is so clear right the things which thou has seen and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter. Now what I want to do in the next section of this message. I'm good to mention those things in chronological order, but what I want to do now is to give you the picture. I want to give you what I understand to be a panorama of prophecy the mountain peaks of prophecy are you ready let's go number one first event that's going to happen and things I shall be hereafter is the rapture and the translation of the saints, the rapture and the translation of the saints looking chapter 4 now and verse one and after this I looked, and behold, I love it and we hold off was opened in heaven and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet, talking with me which said, And I will show the things which must be here in that obvious way into the third part is it right the things that shall be hereafter.

Here we begin the third part and so John and the vision is caught up into heaven, he hears a voice he hears a trumpet he is caught up in the glory. Now this is the rapture of the church being typified the word rapture is the Greek word for Plaza Mall rapture's Latin English called away Greek Positively. They all refer to the same thing and it just simply means to snatch away at any moment at any moment, folks.

The truck is going to sound and we're going to be leaving here are you say pastor that sounds so supernatural, you've got it. First Thessalonians chapter 4 verses 16 through 18, put it in your margin for the Lord himself shall ascend from heaven with a shout, and with the voice of the archangel and with the trump of God and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

I remember we only edge of eternity that could happen today. My advice for you did right or get left he's coming if you heaven born you'll be heaven bound when he comes. That's the rapture.

All right, that's number one number two. The second great event is the tribulation, and the regimentation of this world when the Saints are taken out. The antichrist will come and he's going to turn this world into a vast concentration camp. Now the Bible calls this time the day of God's wrath.

I'm going to dip in and try to give you a sampling of some versus Milliken chapter 6, beginning in verse 12 and I beheld when it opened the sixth seal, and low. There was a great earthquake and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood and the stars of heaven fell into their eyes talking about asteroids and and even as a fig tree casket her in time with things when she is shaken of a mighty wind, and the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together every mountain and island were moved out of their places and the kings of the earth and the great men, and the rich man and the chief captains, and the mighty man in every bondman and every free man, that is a high below the high monkey mocks the big shots a little shocked everyone, look at it every free man themselves in the dens in the rocks of the mountains and said to the mountains and the rocks fallenness and hide us from the face of him that sits on the throne. That is one of most pregnant statements in all of the Bible and from the wrath of the Lamb friend don't miss that.

The wrath of the Lamb for the great day of his wrath is come, and who is able to stand my he is the Lamb of God, full of mercy but is also the God of wrath and judgment and justice, and there seems to be a battle between a God's mercy and God's wrath and the raging waters of God's wrath are furiously pounding against the dam of his. One of these days, that dam will burst in the great day of his wrath will come shall be able to stand the book of Revelation says in that day. Men will desire to die, they will seek death and cannot find what we call today would be a welcome release which you cannot crawl up into the grave and pull the dirt over your face and hide from God they going to the dens of the rocks. The songwriter wrote about it. Oh what a weeping and wailing in the lost are told of the rocks in the mountains.

They pray, but the prayers are too late. That's the second thing the great tribulation, and the regimentation of the worldly antichrist is going to turn the world into a vast concentration camp with all inmates number. Do not be able to buy or sell without taking the mark of the beast that's the way he will control this world many clichs on the clichs, but one makes a lot of sense. It says this, the more machines act like men. More men will act like machines is coming a day when that will happen is the third event I was just giving these in order going through the book number three Armageddon and the destruction of the beast. I would say this coming a man, Satan, Superman, the man ascend the beast who will hold sway over the earth and Regiment the whole world by the economy and miracles, but they finally coming a battle goal. The battle of Armageddon. I let me describe that beast is young, the ruling over the world look at you in Revelation chapter 13 verses one through three.

Apostle John says and I stood upon the sand of the sea as all beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and 10 horns, and upon his horns 10 crowns upon his heads the names of blasphemy and the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear in his mouth as the mouth of a lion. And the Dragon. By the way the Dragon is the devil himself gave him his power and his seat, that means his throne and great authority.

And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death in his deadly wound was healed. And all the world wondered after the beast. Now you say pastor. What is all that mean what we gonna bring a message on this beast so just say this coming one and all of these symbols are rich with meaning. But during this time when this world ruler rises during the tribulation. Demon spirits are going to infest the world and demon spirits are going to be working on the kings of the earth to gather them and draw them to the battle called the battle of Armageddon look in chapter 16, beginning in verse 13, John says and I saw three unclean spirits like for all coming out of the mouth of the Dragon out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet that is the unholy Trinity, the Dragon, the beast and the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devotees, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that what you think he put his garments, lest he walk naked and they see Shane and I watch this for 16 and he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon unclean, while spirits like fellows out of the mouth of the Dragon, the beast and the false prophet are going to all the kings the satraps the rulers of this world, to gather them to this particular battle called the battle of Armageddon what's going to transpire there. Here is the beast. He has virtual control over all the world. He gathers all of the contingency of this world's armies there in that vast Valley.

The Megiddo Valley. The valley of Armageddon. I've been there many times they bivouacked that a camp there ready to surround Jerusalem. It looks like it will be the last time for God's ancient people. It looks like now, Israel, the nation itself is finally going to be destroyed and decimated, but watch what happens. Revelation 19 beginning in verse 11 and I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse and he that sat upon him was called faithful and true, and in righteousness he doesn't judge and make his eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns and he had a name written, that no man knew but himself and he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood, and his name is called goal. Word of God and the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, and out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations, and he shall rule them with a rod of iron and he treaded the winepress of the fierceness of an wrath of Almighty God and he hath on his vesture and on his thigh and name written carrying of kings and Lord of lords, and then read Revelation 19 verse 19 and I saw the beast and the kings of their and their armies gathered together to make against him that sat on the horse and against his army and the beast was taken with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshiped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone and the remnant were slain with the sword of him that set up on the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth and all the files were filled with their flesh.

The battle was sent here is the antichrist here are his armies they have, to make more on heavens King by going to make all my days can Jesus follow where the armies of heaven coming this time not for his church coming this time with his church. After the seven years of the tribulation is antichrist. This braggart belching out blasphemies ready to make war with the balances was over with two words.

Jesus is brought destroyed them with this all goes out of his mouth is where the same where they spoke them into existence will speak to him into oblivion battle of Armageddon. Next, the millennium and the glorification of the Savior. Revelation 20. Beginning verse one.

Here's what he saying that and I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand and hold on the Dragon metal circuit which is the devil and Satan, and bound him a thousand year Latin, a millennium, and cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up and set a seal on him that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years should be fulfilled. And after that he must be loosed a little season and I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them, that's us folks and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for the word of God which had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads or in their hands and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years, but the rest of the dead live not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection on such the second that had no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him thousand years is a pastor. I believe in Jesus going to ruler right here upon this earth.

Yes, I think about how many times have you prayed by kingdom come, thy will be done on earth, even as it is in heaven with Jesus taught us to pray, that had it not been meant to come to pass.

The Lord Jesus Christ say in the Beatitudes lesson are the meek for they shall walk in Herrick. The idea that Jesus is going to be for read the Old Testament prophecies in the Bible prophesies over and over again that the Messiah, the son of David will room from Jerusalem.

I believe that with all of my heart for the day that will be room with the Lord Jesus Christ here upon this earth. Then next. I don't have any more time today will net this coming the final judgment in the condemnation of the sentence when all of this is coming to a climax we read here Revelation chapter 20 verse 11 and I saw a great white throne and him that settlement from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away.

And there was found no place for them and I saw the dead, small and great, big shot in the little shop stand before God and the books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the book of life and the debt would judge that was things which were written in the books, according to their works and the sea gave up the dead which were in it, death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them and they would every man according to their works, and death and hell were cast into the lake of fire.

This is the second day and whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire is your name in the book of life.

I'm telling you, friend. If it is not one of these days you're going to stand before the unavoidable, inescapable. Jesus Christ, you have a date with deity, then here's the final thing the eternal state and the destination of the species old guard dog about the origin of species bring you better be concerned about the destination the species out where's it going and look if you win. Revelation 21 verses six and eight and he said enemy. It is done. That's it finish.

I mouth and Omega, the beginning and then I will give him it is a thirst of the fountain of the water of life freely heated over, shall inherit all things. I love that Wendell Noah went into that arc.

He probably spent everything had a bill that arc the women a pauper when it came out you know what he owned the world even overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he should be my son. What's this, but the fearful, and unbelieving and the abominable, and murderers and warmongers and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. When God made you God created you to be a living soul and your soul must cease to exist and got himself ceased to exist are made in God's image and you will be in existence somewhere that the average person. If he's going to happen is allowed to but he doesn't know Jesus. If you think that you can go to heaven without being born again.

Your woefully ignorant of two things. Number one, you don't know how sinful you are number two you don't know how holy he is only one way to get to heaven you ability to spend eternity in heaven or hell is it all depends upon what you do with the Lord Jesus Christ not go to the end of the book. Let me show you quickly.

The last invitation in the Bible, Revelation 22 verse 17 look at it. It is, and the Spirit and the bride say, that next word, I let him that here say, and let him that is a thirst. Now listen to me so I will him freely want to be saved, people talk about who are the elect will not be linked may tell you something, Mr. if you're thirsty, just come on, so ever will, and take of the water of life freely and man.

Let me give you not only the last invitation, but the last prayer in the Bible, Revelation 22 verse 20 he which testifies these things saith surely, I come quickly in auto Johnson is saying what Adrian is saying today. Even so, Lord Jesus, Lord Jesus, a friend, the rapture of the church made today.

If you're thirsty. God's word to you is just come out, come to Jesus and friend, if you want to be saved. Would you pray this prayer. Pray from your heart. Dear God I am a sinner and my sin deserves judgment, but I want mercy, Jesus died to save me and you promise to save if I would trust. I do trust you, Jesus, with all of my heart come into my heart, forgive my sin cleanse me and save me and help me openly and publicly acknowledging as my Lord and Savior in your name I pray, amen, amen.
