Subject Studies | Revelation 11:1-14, 12:1-17, 13:1-14:5, 17:1-18
Heretofore, in the Commentary thus far, things have been orderly and chronological with respect to the unfolding events of the Last Days. Hopefully you have observed this much in the Introduction, Revelation 1-3, Revelation 4-6, Revelation 7-9, & Revelation 10:1-11:14. However, our study of Revelation 11:1-14, 12:1-17, 13:1-14:5, 17:1-18 will not be orderly in respect to the unfolding of the events of the Last Days. These Chapters are more like case studies rather than a chronological dictation of the events of the future. All of these Chapters directly pertain to the same subjects: the Beast, or Babylon, and the 3 ½ year Great Tribulation as it affects the Church. However, the aspects and details being emphasized are different. If the reader desires to understand the events of Revelation 11:1-14, 12:1-17, 13:1-14:5, 17:1-18 in the order of their fulfillment in the chronology of the future, please understand that this is not the endeavor of these Chapters. If you desire to read about the rise of the Beast, or Babylon, and the 3 ½ year Great Tribulation, with the subjects rendered in an orderly fashion in the chronology of futurity, see Revelation 7-9 & Revelation 10:1-11:14. Therein, I have sought to extract the relevant content of Revelation 11:1-14, 12:1-17, 13:1-14:5, 17:1-18 so as to render it in the order that these things bear significance in a chronological ordering of the future events. Also, in reference to things orderly & chronological, if you desire to read about the 2nd Coming of Christ and the judgment of the Beast, or Babylon, which takes place after the Great Tribulation & the Rapture of the Church, see Revelation 11:15-19, 14:6-16:21, 18:1-20:6. I repeat, the only portion of this Commentary that is NOT an orderly rendering of chronological futurity, and rather a subject study, is the following.
