Series: End Times: What's Going On?
Stuart Briscoe
Revelation 19:11-20:15

On three occasions in his visions, John has seen the great climax of this world's history (the vision of the seals, trumpets, and bowls). But now he returns to the subject and reveals more details of the events constituting the end of the age.

I. The Triumphant Return of Christ. 19:11-21; See 16:15

A. The promise of Christ's second coming. John 14:1-3; Acts 1:11; 2 Peter 3:4

B. The splendor of His return.
1. He entered Jerusalem on a donkey; He returns on a white charger.

2. He has proved Himself to be faithful, true, and just.

3. He is irresistible and indisputably in control (eyes, crowns).

4. He is unfathomable (name hidden) and indomitable (magic powerless).

5. He knows suffering (blood), but He is the Word of God.

6. He speaks truth no man can withstand (sword); He will rule the nations.

7. He will exercise divine judgment and reign supreme (King of Kings).

C. The defeat of His enemies.

Series: End Times: What's Going On?
Stuart Briscoe
Revelation 21:1-22:21

Having explained the "lake of fire" destiny of those whose names are NOT written in the "book of life," John's attention is now directed to what those whose names are recorded might expect in the coming age.

A. The passing away of the "first heaven and the first earth."

B. The disappearance of the sea from whence the beast had arrived.

C. The "Holy City, the new Jerusalem": old Jerusalem replaced. See Galatians 4:26
