Passage: Revelation 7

Speaker: Pastor Scott Stephan

Series: Revelations

Signed, Sealed and Delivered
Revelation 7
Who can stand?
4 angels - 4 corners of the earth - 4 winds = 4 horses
Zechariah 6:1-8
Revelation 7 is a recap of Revelation 6 with some new information.
What’s the new information?
1) God is protecting his servants in the midst of suffering and tribulation
  1. Revelation 7 is God’s answer to Jesus prayer in John 17
  2. The seal on the forehead - God’s great name
  3. The strength of a seal is determined by the value of that which is being protected.
144,000—is this a literal number or figurative number?
  • 12 (tribes) x 12 (apostles) x 10 x 10 x 10
  • A Hebrew way of saying, “a big number” “an infinite number”
Tribulation = Crushing pressure
  • The pressure is the result of two kingdom’s colliding
  • We are living during the tribulation which will intensify as we approach Jesus’ return
