Revelation 6

March 6, 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. It surprises me that John wept and wept (chapter 5) because when six of these seals are opened in this chapter, it unleashes such destruction I wonder why the seals could not have been left unopened?

    I think it is because it was necessary in order to bring about the eventually triumph of God over evil.

  3. v.10-11 reminds of some lines from the hymn, The Church’s One Foundation:
    Yet saints their watch are keeping,
    Their cry goes up: How long?
    And soon the night of weeping, Shall be the morn of song.

  5. I think John wept because there was no one worthy, the earth is a horrible sinful place. and This was the end of all that.

    And all who are left in verses 15- 17 are so frightened of the Lamb they hide and want to die.

  7. I decided to look for evidence of a rapture or taking up of the saints before the seals are broken and one spot in the letter to the church at Philadelphia vs.10. I will keep you from the hour….

    Some in each of the churches are promised blessing and eventual victory but not that they would be spared the trials or death. hmmm

  9. You could be right Deborah maybe he did weep because there was no one worthy. However I don’t think that would have been enough to make me weep and weep because I have already accepted that.

    Yes, it is interesting some are promised protection from the trials, others are promised strength in the trials. Thankfully God knows how much we can bear.

    I heard someone once say that v.12-14 is similar to the descriptions the people who survived the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki gave.

  11. v.10 They called out in a loud voice, “How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?”

    How long? Or are we there yet? One day we will be. It is our certain hope.

  13. v.11 Then each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to wait a little longer, until the full number of their fellow servants, their brothers and sisters, were killed just as they had been.

    Wait a little longer. How we hate to wait. The whole world groans until it is free from its corruption but we need to wait until God completes all things.
