THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL (27 of 39)
THE KING IS COMING
Dr. James Merritt
REVELATION 14:1-5

INTRODUCTION

1. IN THE LAST TWO CHAPTERS WE HAVE STUDIED WE WERE
GIVEN A PICTURE OF THE DARKEST DAYS SPIRITUALLY AND
MORALLY THIS WORLD WILL EVER EXPERIENCE. WE WERE
INTRODUCED TO THE TERRIBLE TRINITY: THE DEVIL, THE
BEAST, AND THE FALSE PROPHET.

2. As WE LEFT CHAPTER 13 WE LEFT A WORLD UNITED UNDER
THE BANNER OF THE BEAST. THERE WAS A ONE WORLD
GOVERNMENT RULED BY THE BEAST, AND ONE WORLD RELIGION

5. IN PREVIOUS CHAPTERS WE HAVE BEEN LOOKING THROUGH A
MICROSCOPE, EXAMINING THIS TERRIBLE PERIOD OF TIME
KNOWN AS THE GREAT TRIBULATION. WE HAVE SEEN THAT THE
GREAT TRIBULATION IS A TIME OF FATAL PERSECUTION, AS
MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS OF BELIEVERS WILL DIE FOR THEIR
FAITH HAVING "COME OUT OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION, AND
WASHED THEIR ROBES AND MADE THEM WHITE IN THE BLOOD OF
THE LAMB." (REV. 7:14B)

6. WE HAVE SEEN THAT IT WILL BE A TIME OF FORCEFUL
PREACHING. WE HAVE HEARD THE PREACHING OF GOD'S TWO
