WHAT'S ALL THE FUSS ABOUT? (24 of 39)
THE KING IS COMING
DR. JAMES MERRITT
REVELATION 12:1-17

INTRODUCTION

1. CHAPTER 12 MARKS A NEW BEGINNING IN THE STUDY OF
THE BOOK OF THE REVELATION. WE ARE GOING TO BE LOOKING
AT MUCH OF WHAT WE HAVE ALREADY SEEN BEFORE, BUTWE ARE
GOING TO BE SEEING IT FROM A NEW PERSPECTIVE, IN
CHAPTERS 4 THROUGH 11 WE HAVE BEEN LOOKING THROUGH A
TELESCOPE. BUT FROM CHAPTERS 12 THROUGH 20 WE WILL BE
LOOKING AT THINGS THROUGH A MICROSCOPE.

2. WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN, SO FAR, BROAD HINTS AS TO THE
CHARACTER OF THIS TERRIBLE PERIOD OF TIME KNOWN AS THE

THE WORLD, THE LAST THREE AND ONE-HALF YEARS OF THE
GREAT TRIBULATION.

4. JESUS HIMSELF SAID THAT IT WOULD BE A TIME OF
TROUBLE UNLIKE THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN. BUT IT WILL BE
SPECIFICALLY THE TIME OF "JACOB'S TROUBLE." ONE OF THE
FOCAL POINTS DURING THIS TIME, AND THE PEOPLE WHO WILL
RECEIVE THE BRUNT OF THE EVIL WRATH OF THE DEVIL WILL
BE THE NATION OF ISRAEL.

I. THE STRANGE WOMAN

1. JOHN BEGINS BY INTRODUCING US TO A WOMAN. NOW THIS
