Why Christians have a fervent desire for the promised future
NKJV (John 3:16) 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
In the previous article we talked about opening the scroll with the 7 seals, the two witnesses prophecy, the times of the Gentiles, the New Jerusalem born as a child and the rapture in heaven of the prophets and the 144,000 saints.
Again a brief summary of God’s torments:
– The opening of the seven seals (see Rev. 6: 1-17, 8: 1-5)
Rev. 8: 6 The opening of the 7th seal includes – the blowing of the seven trumpets
– The blowing of the seven trumpets (see Rev. 8: 7-9: 21, 11: 15-19)
Rev. 16: 1 The blowing of the 7th trumpet includes – pouring out the seven bowls of wrath
– The pouring out of the seven bowls of wrath (see Rev. 16: 2-21)
There remained the question of why the great multitude will also receive a heavenly resurrection.
The theme of this article is the persecution of Christians, the new heaven and the new earth and why it is logical that the great multitude will be included in heaven.
