THE BOOK OF THE REVELATION (12 of 24)
Jesse M. Hendley
Now, friends, please turn with me to the Book of
Revelation, chapter 14. Here we have seven visions of
the closing of the Tribulation Period. The Church has

mount Zion, and with him an hundred forty and four
thousand, having His Father's name written in their
foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, as the
voice of many waters, and as the voice of great
thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with
their harps: And they san ...
