A STUDY IN REVELATION

The Book of the Revelation is in threefold division as
to time: "That which is, and which was, and which is
to come," past, present and future.
The first chapter of this wonderful book records the
words of the Lord Jesus Christ to John on the Isle of
Patmos, "Write the things which thou hast seen, and
the things which are, and the things which shall be
hereafter." (Rev. 1:19.) In the first chapter, John
is seeing a vision of Christ. Chapters 2 and 3 con-
cern "the things which are," and deal with the S e v e
n Churches. From chapter 4 to the end of the book we
read of "the things which shall be hereafter," and we
are told about the Great Tribulation Period when the
wrath of God shall be poured out upon the earth, when
the Devil's Anti-Christ shall be reigning and the
earth will have seven years of the greatest suffering
and sorrow that has ever been known. We are told
about the ultimate glory of the redeemed and the
eternal damnation for the unsaved.
There is one glorious thing about it, Child of God,
and that is that according to His Promise, Christ is
coming to take His Own out of this world before the
Tribulation takes place. God has said that, and He
cannot lie. It is a wonderful thing to be saved. And
it is going to be a wonderful thing to be caught up
into the air to meet Christ and escape the terrible
things that shall come upon the earth. There is
coming a time of sorrow, Jesus said, so great that if
He did not come again there would be no flesh left
alive on the earth.
Today our statesmen have reason to be fearful. They
know world conditions, and they have reason to be
sweating and doing all they can do because the world
is heading for a time of trouble such as it has never
known before; ungodliness is coming to a head.
Earth's time of sorrow is dawning, the greatest sorrow
