Revelation 15

May 15, 2009

Here’s how the study works: Read the chapter mentioned in the heading several times during the week and share any words, thoughts, verses that stood out to you. Having a week for a chapter creates the opportunity to reread it several times and make additional comments as you feel inclined as well as make comments on other people’s insights.

  1. Ok, here we go somewhat out of sequence again, isn’t it?

    I thought we already saw the 7bowls.

    anywho, I also think now, the 4 living creatures are Moses, Elijah, Abraham and Jesus. as God is not a creature, Christ is incarnate so could be called a creature, yes?

  3. We have had the seven seals and the seven trumphets and now we have the seven bowls or plagues. I think it is interesting that after the last trumphet (ch.11) we read God has begun to reign (v.17) the time has come for judging the dead (v.18) and God’s temple in heaven is opened (v.19) which suggests some sort of climax. Then here in ch.15 we have the completion of God’s wrath (v.1) and no one could enter the temple until the seven plagues were completed (v.8).

    The four living creatures are mentioned in 4:7 as being like a lion, ox, man and an eagle. A similar description is found in Ezekiel 1:4-10.

  5. There seems to be quite a bit of singing in heaven. I think this is the third or fourth song (v.3). I like to sing so this is good.

  7. I am becoming more fully aware of how inadequate I am to understand and even keep straight in my mind all that is happening here. I have to keep reminding myself this is my warning to “stay awake” and stay in the Word so I won’t be fooled. or left to endure the plagues…yeek!

  9. v.2-3 And I saw what looked like a sea of glass glowing with fire and, standing beside the sea, those who had been victorious over the beast and its image and over the number of its name. They held harps given them by God and sang the song of God’s servant Moses and of the Lamb:

    Those that responded to the gospel (perhaps as a result of 14:6), sing. If we are saved we have something to sing about. We cannot repay God for his gift of salvation but we can sing. Sing out our love, adoration, gratitude. Our response is to sing.

  11. v.3 Great and marvelous are your deeds, Lord God Almighty. Just and true are your ways, King of the nations.

    Furthermore these people don’t sing about what they have done to overcome the beast, the image, or over the number of its name but rather they sing about what God has done.

  13. v.2-3 They held harps given them by God and sang the song of God’s servant Moses and of the Lamb:

    Also when we get to heaven people won’t be complaining about what we sing!!

    Earth is the crumbs. Heaven is the feast.
