The Glory of God Revelation 15:2–4
And I saw what looked like a sea of glass glowing with fire and, standing beside the sea, those who had been victorious over the beast and its image and over the number of its name. They held harps given them by God 3 and sang the song of God’s servant Moses and of the Lamb:

“Great and marvelous are your deeds,
        Lord God Almighty.
Just and true are your ways,
        King of the nations.
Who will not fear you, Lord,
        and bring glory to your name?
        For you alone are holy.
All nations will come and worship before you,
        for your righteous acts have been revealed.”

I believe in a -tribulational rapture of the Church
and a -millennial bodily return of Jesus.

In Revelation there are two teams:

1. Team

  • Satan (The Dragon), The Great Prostitute, Demons (fallen angels), The Anti-Christ, Beast 1 and 2

“She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries. Revelation 17:4

  • Priorities: greed, domination, evil, chaos, murder and abomination

2. Team .

  • God the Father, Jesus the Lamb of God, The Holy Spirit (7-fold Spirit of God), the Woman, Angels, the Two Witnesses, the 144,000, the 24 Elders, the Worshiping Beasts
  • Priorities: love, gratitude, generosity, sacrifice, service, truth, life, peace and honor

God’s call to his team:
Then I heard another voice from heaven say:

“‘Come out of her, my people,’
        so that you will not share in her sins,
        so that you will not receive any of her plagues… Revelation 18:4

How do we “come out of” the temptation of living like Babylon?
10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:

“Now have come the salvation and the power
        and the kingdom of our God,
        and the authority of his Messiah.
For the accuser of our brothers and sisters,
        who accuses them before our God day and night,
        has been hurled down.
11 They triumphed over him 
        by the blood of the Lamb
        and by the word of their testimony;
they did not love their lives so much
        as to shrink from death. Revelation 12:10-11
