Realization of Prophetic Visions

By Philip Mark Ames

EPILOGUE

After having viewed God's judgment of the great whore, John hears shouts of praise in heaven. All those in the second heaven are praising God for having righteously executed judgment upon the harlot, and for avenging the blood of His servants. Then the glorious marriage of Jesus and his bride takes place. His bride is the spiritual New Jerusalem, made up of all those who, like himself, will have been born again. Having been raised up to immortality, they willingly submit themselves to him as their leader, their head. New Jerusalem joins her husband in heavenly glory.

After that marriage, Jesus Christ comes to defeat his remaining enemies, and to begin ruling the nations with a staff of iron. The nineteenth chapter of the Revelation is very clear in describing these events. Both the democratic beast and the technocratic false prophet are captured by Jesus and thrown into the lake of fire; they are utterly destroyed.

Then an angel comes down from heaven, captures the dragon and binds him for a thousand years, throwing him into the abyss and sealing it. At the end of the thousand years, Satan will be loosed for awhile before being thrown into the lake of fire, where he joins the beast and its false prophet in eternal destruction. (Revelation chapter 20)

So all four of these great adversaries of God will be eliminated. And those persons worshipping them will share their fate. Especially for those worshipping the seven-headed beast or its image, or receiving the engraving of its name or number does God promise severe plagues. (Rev. 14:9-11; 16:2) But for those killed for their faithfulness to The God who created heaven and earth, there is promised immortality and the privilege of living and ruling with Jesus Christ, the King of kings and Lord of lords. (Rev. 2Q:4-6)

In this book, I have dealt with only a few of the prophetic visions recorded in the Bible. But, I believe these to be especially important for Christians to understand at this time. The next few months and years will produce very difficult circumstances for the whole world. Other parts of the Revelation will be undergoing fulfillment. God willing, I may write again.

I thank God, in the name of His Son Jesus, for His Holy Spirit which has made it possible for me to write this little book.

May all glory and honor and praise and thanksgiving go to God who is seated on the throne, and to the Lamb, Jesus. Amen.
