  3. What does Rev 8:3-5 tell you about your prayers? How should these verses affect the way you pray?

  4. What purpose does the angel/eagle in Rev 8:13 serve? What does this tell you about God and His judgment?

  1. What was your big take-away from Revelation 7? What stood out to you?

  2. Who are the 144,000 (Rev 7:1-8)? Who makes up the “multitude” (Rev 7:9-17)? How are you able to identify them? <Note to leaders: their identity, when drawn from other sources besides the Bible itself, leads to crazy and weird beliefs. This is not a throw-away question, this is an “interpret the Bible with the Bible” question.>

  3. Why do you think the Holy Spirit took a “break from the action” that started in chapter 6 to insert this content of Rev 7? Why this parenthetical interlude?

  4. How do these promises of heaven encourage you personally (Rev 7:15-17)? How do they motivate you to share the Gospel / invite to church? How do they affect the way you think of loved ones who have died in Christ?

Pray for each other.

  1. What was your big “takeaway” from Revelation 6?

  2. Which of the seals especially stood out to you? Why?

  3. If these lost people (Rev 6:15-17) recognize these events as being the wrath of the Almighty, why will they not repent? What does this say about hard-heartedness?

BREAKOUT

Pray for an unsaved family member / friend / coworker - BY NAME - that they would come to know the “grace of the Lamb”. How can you help share the Gospel with that person?
