"A FORECAST FOR THE FUTURE"
October 29, 1989
Uncertainty of weather forecasting
This forecast of the future is certain.
Today's forecast is in six major areas:
I. CONCERNING THE TRIBULATION SAINTS. (14:12-13)
"Perseverance of the saints" - Hanging in there all the way to the end - being
faithful to Jesus even in the midst of Tribulation.
How do they persevere?
1. Keep commandments. (v. 12)
2. Faithful. (v. 12)
"Blessing" - happiness
"Rest" - no more suffering
"Deeds follow them" - bear testimony of their faith
II. CONCERNING THE SON OF MAN. (14:14-16)
"Cloud" - Revelation of God
"One like" - It was the Son of Man (Jesus' favorite reference to Himself)
"Golden Crown" - authority
"Sharp Sickle" - Judgment (Reaper is Jesus)
"Hour to reap has come" - Religious reap (wheat/tares)
1st harvest - grain
2nd harvest - grapes
Two thoughts on the Son of Man:
2. Judgment > How He will come the Second time
III. CONCERNING THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON. (14:17-20)
"Angel with sharp sickle" - reaping judgment
"Angel who has power over fire" - Judgment
