Now as you are turning to GOD'S SPECIAL BOOK OF BLESSING, the book of Revelation, we come this morning to chapter 14: God's Preview Chapter.
Now chapter 13 was a chapter of gloom and doom. We met the Devil's Unholy Trinity: the Devil, the Anti-Christ and his False Prophet. It was there we learned about the mark of the beast and how by receiving that mark seals your destiny. That is, once a person takes that mark, he is as certain for hell as though the iron gates of hell have been shut behind him.
But without the mark, you will not be able to buy or sell. So, to receive the mark seals your destiny: judgment, death, and hell! But to refuse the mark will bring certain death.
I mean, you talk about gloom and doom. That is chapter 13. But the scene changes drastically in chapter 14. If chapter 13 is the chapter of gloom and doom, chapter 14 is the chapter of hope and victory.
Chapter 14 is God's Preview Chapter. Now, you know what it is to preview something. To preview is to see something or to know something before it's made public.
The movie industry does this all the time. They will release several scenes from movie to let the viewers know what they can anticipate. And besides that, it whets your appetite.
In fact, to better communicate upcoming events and ministry opportunities, starting this month, we're going to be publishing a quarterly church magazine called Preview.
Why Preview? To better communicate ministry opportunities for you to be a part of. Preview!!
Well, that's what chapter 14 is all about: God's Special Preview. God gives us a preview of some of the things that will take place during the last 3 1/2 years of the tribulation.
Well, let's see what this special preview will mean then, what it means now, and what it means to us personally.
