Study the Bible in Two Years

Monday – Revelation 15-16

1.  Chapter 15 introduces us to the next series of seven – the 7 bowls of plague.  Once again we hear the saints singing in heaven!  Note the rhetorical question in 15:4.   For what reasons do people in this world refuse to fear the Lord?    (It is upon them that these bowls of wrath fall).  Think of times when you might take God’s presence and power for granted.

2.  You might notice that the 7 trumpets (Chapters 8-9)  and the 7 bowls are similar.  The 6th Trumpet and Bowl both describe “Armageddon.”  The 7th Trumpet and Bowl both picture Judgment Day.     What do God’s punishments lead the wicked to do?  See 16:9,11.   What should the bowls lead them to do?

3.  Many people think that the great battle of Armageddon is going to be the last major earthly war in theMiddle East.  What features in John’s vision show that this is not a literal battle, but a spiritual one?  Look for things that could not happen literally.
