Revelation 21-22

This entry is part 16 of 16 in the series Revelation

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Having carried his description of Satan’s destiny and the resurrection of unbelievers to their conclusions in chapter 20, John now returns to the beginning of the Millennium to describe the new home of the Church in chapter 21 and the new Earth in chapter 22. We know this because the phrase “new heaven and new earth” also appears in Isaiah 65:17 at the beginning of a passage describing Israel during the Millennium.

Psalm 126

When the LORD brought back the captives to Zion, we were like men who dreamed. Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, “The LORD has done great things for them.”

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

The Great Tribulation has ended, Babylon has been destroyed, and Planet Earth is ready to receive her King. All that remains is the capture of that unholy trinity that’s caused all the devastation and the annihilation of their army. It sounds like a big job, but with the Lord personally directing events it won’t take long at all.

Psalm 125

Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people both now and forevermore. Continue reading…

Revelation 15-16

This entry is part 13 of 16 in the series Revelation

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

The time of the Bowl Judgments is upon us. The full fury of God’s Wrath, begun in chapter 6, is coming. It’s been building in stages to give all those who will, the opportunity to seek and find Him before it’s too late. But now the climax is at hand. Upon the completion of the Bowl Judgments, God’s righteous requirement for judgment upon those who have rejected His earnest and unceasing pleas for reconciliation will have been satisfied. At long last Planet Earth will be ready to receive Her King, and enjoy the peace He alone can bring.

Psalm 122

I rejoiced with those who said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD.”

Our feet are standing in your gates, O Jerusalem. Jerusalem is built like a city that is closely compacted together. That is where the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, to praise the name of the LORD according to the statute given to Israel.

Revelation 13 – 14

This entry is part 12 of 16 in the series Revelation

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

The Great Tribulation is about to begin on Earth. The Temple will soon be made desolate. When that happens, the Jewish remnant will heed the Lord’s call from Matt. 24:15-16 and flee to a place of supernatural protection as we saw in Rev. 12. When they do, Satan’s target of opportunity will become the so-called Tribulation Saints, those who’ve come to faith in the Lord after the Rapture.

The Salt Of The Earth

Commentary by Jack Kelley

A simple line in Mark 9:50 says so much. It’s almost a throw-away and yet when taken in light of the surrounding passage it speaks volumes. “Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with each other.”

Psalm 120

I call on the LORD in my distress, and he answers me. Save me, O LORD, from lying lips and from deceitful tongues. What will he do to you, and what more besides, O deceitful tongue? He will punish you with a warrior’s sharp arrows, with burning coals of the broom tree. Woe to me that I dwell in Meshech, that I live among the tents of Kedar! Too long have I lived among those who hate peace. I am a man of peace; but when I speak, they are for war.
