  1. How does Zechariah (chapters 2 and 4) help you understand Revelation 11?

  2. According to the Bible, what makes God laugh (Psalm 2:4, 37:13, 59:8 - you may want to look at the context for fuller understanding)? How do you reconcile this with the truth that God “has no pleasure in the death of the wicked” (Ezekiel 33:11)?

  3. Why would God allow the 2 Witnesses to be killed, only to resurrect them (11:7, 11)? Why not just keep them invincible? What does this tell you about God - and the trials in your own life?

  4. Read the blog on our website that supplements the sermon. Who do YOU think the “2 Witnesses” are?

BREAKOUT

Pray prayers of thanksgiving!

3 - How do you know when someone is hard-hearted to the point of being unable to be reached with the Gospel (v20-21)? How can you suspect someone is heading there? What do you do in that case?

BREAKOUT

Pray for someone you know who is an addict, that the Lord would bring deliverance.
