The Bible says in Daniel 9:25-27: “Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.”
PROPHECY BOOTCAMP: Our topic for today is titled “The Wrath of the Lamb” (Part 1) from Dr. Ed Hindson’s book “Revelation: Unlocking the Future.”
The process of God’s judgments upon the world is unleashed by the opening of the seven seals. These result in a series of catastrophic events that express the “wrath of the Lamb.” Each opening of a seal hurtles the world further along a course of ultimate disaster. Eventually, the opening of the seventh seal results in the sounding of seven trumpets, which intensify the judgments even further.
Revelation chapter 6 begins with the words “and I saw.” In fact, every one of the first 16 verses of this chapter begins with the word “and.” This constant development increases the reader’s anticipa-tion of what is going to happen next. The pace is so fast that by the end of the chapter the reader runs out of breath.
