The most frequently requested Christ in Prophecy television show episodes on Revelation have been pulled out of the vault and re-released!
Over the six episodes, Dr. David Reagan and guests Don McGee of Crown and Sickle Ministries and Dennis Pollock of Spirit of Grace Ministries go chapter by chapter through the book of Revelation, explaining that the book of Revelation isn't difficult to understand, rather it is difficult to believe. But, if you will believe it for its plain sense meaning, you will understand it. For anyone who's been born again and has the Holy Spirit residing within them, Revelation can become very clear.
We'll continue on in our journey through the great book of Revelation, being introduced to a mysterious harlot who rides a scarlet beast in Revelation 17-18. Feel free to watch, listen, or read along by clicking one of the icons below.
Revelation Revealed: Chapter 17
[Read Chapter 17 in the NASB version via Biblegateway.]
Dr. Reagan: Chapter 17 introduces us to a vile scene of a great harlot riding a scarlet beast.
Women are often used in the Scriptures to symbolize religious systems, and that is the case here. This harlot represents the apostate and corrupt Church which will dominate the religious scene during the first half of the Tribulation. The Church will rally apostate Catholics and Protestants as well as practitioners of other religions to support the Antichrist and worship him as messiah.
The Harlot is described as being drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus, because she will persecute all true believers who refuse to cooperate with her.
Notice that the harlot is portrayed as riding on the back of the Antichrist. This symbolism indicates that the Church has become a nuisance. The Antichrist has used her to help consolidate his world kingdom, but now she has become enamored with power and so the Antichrist turns on her and destroys her. He replaces her with his new one world religion that is headed up by the False Prophet.
Revelation Revealed: Chapter 18
[Read Chapter 18 in the NASB version via Biblegateway.]
Dr. Reagan: Chapter 18 depicts the destruction of the political, economic, and social systems of the Antichrist kingdoms. The destruction is swift, total, occurring in one hour of one day.
But again, before the destruction falls, God in His tender mercy sends another angel to warn. The angel announces the impending doom of the kingdom and implores people to "come out." We are told that the sins of the kingdom have piled up as high as heaven and God is ready to remember her iniquities.
As the Antichrist's capital city and kingdom are quickly destroyed by God with pestilence, famine, and fire; the political leaders, merchants, cargo handlers of the world weep and mourn in despair because of the wealth that is laid to waste.
In the next part on this series on Revelation, we'll witness Heaven rejoicing, a marriage, and the victorious coming of the King in Revelation 19.
