Intro / Review:

Who Can Stand When God's Judgment Comes Down?

  1. 144,000 ISRAELITES (Rev 7:1-8)
  2. Countless MARTYRS. (Rev 7:9-17)
  3. The Comfort in Judgment:

  1. God SAVES. (Rev 7:10-14)

    Ezekiel 18:32 - For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Lord God; so turn, and live.

  2. God SEALS. (Rev 7:2-3)

    2 Corinthians 1:22 - ...and who has also put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.

  3. God PROMISES. (Rev 7:15-17)

    Isaiah 65:17 - For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth, and the former things shall not be remembered or come into mind.

  4. So We WORSHIP. (Rev 7:12)

GROUP

  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?
