Revelation 19:1-10
Dr. Vines 10/20/85
With the reading of the opening verses of Revelation 19 there is a
drastic change in mood and in atmosphere. We are moving now from the somber
scenes of tribulation on the earth to the wonderful time when the heavens wil
be filled with Hallelujahs unto our God. We move from the chapters that deal

difference in the world between tribulation on the earth and the millennium
reign of our Lord. That event is the return of the Lord Jesus our Savior,
coming in the air for his people and then bringing them back to this earth to
rule and reign with him for a thousand years.
