9 – Satan and His Two Allies – 2/23 – 3/1

This week’s lesson – Satan and His Two Allies

“And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ” (Revelation 12:17, NKJV).

John the revelator identifies the sea beast (Rev. 13:1) as a power that “opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven” (verse 6, NKJV). The land beast is also described as a false teacher (verse 14). What is specified even more than these beasts’ blasphemies are their violent and forceful actions against the world and the people of God (verses 7, 10, 13, 14, 16, 17). For John, a lack of correct Christian doctrine is important, but even more emphasized and repeated in Revelation 13 is the fact that these beasts act contrary to the character of God, which gives human beings freedom, even if that freedom is against Him. As Christians, it is important that we not only speak the truth but act the truth. Our God is not merely a collection of beautiful ideas; He is a Person of beautiful action, freedom, and love. From this week’s lesson – Friday

Read about it, think about it, and let’s discuss this coming Sabbath.

 

8 – Satan, a Defeated Enemy – 2/16 – 2/22

This week’s lesson – Satan, a Defeated Enemy

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death” (Revelation 12:11, NKJV).

No enemy comes to be defeated. An enemy comes to fight and to subdue the opponent. To defeat an enemy, one must have the required fighting skills, the best weapons, and stamina to fight. We are in a war with Satan. Armed with his best tools, he is ready to attack anytime. On our part, we need the most powerful tools to combat his equipment. Fortunately, God has given us the best message—that Satan is already defeated. As long as we allow Christ to live in us and to fight the war on our behalf, victory is ours. – From this week’s lesson – Friday.

7 – The Seven Trumpets – 2/9 – 2/15

This week’s lesson – The Seven Trumpets

“But in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets” (Revelation 10:7, NKJV).

‘History records a loving Savior entreating, warning individuals and nations to turn from their wicked ways. Egypt, once a proud/powerful empire, bows to God’s command to “let my people go.” The story is similarly repeated in Revelation 8–11.

Fire and hail, blood and smoke, falling stars and destroying armies, fall upon a rebellious world. Mercy slighted folds her wings “to step down from the golden throne to give place to justice and swift-coming judgment.”1 Finding yourself fighting against God? Surrender to Him and Christ will “receive you unto [Himself] that where [He is] there ye may be also” ‘ (John 14:3). – From this week’s lesson – Friday.

Read about it, think about it, and let’s discuss it this Sabbath.

 

6 – The Sealed People of God – 2/2 – 2/8

This Week’s Lesson – The Sealed People of God

‘These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb’ ” (Revelation 7:14, NKJV).

The seal of God’s people is proof that they belong to the Sealer. The seal protects; it shows permanence; and it shows the prominence of the sealed people. Above all, the seal demonstrates power and provides peace to both the sealed and the Sealer. Regardless of our past sins, our race, gender, or background, God gives us equal chance to be His sealed people. He is willing to seal us by the blood of Christ through the Holy Spirit.
From this week’s lesson – Friday.

Read about it, think about it, and let’s discuss this Sabbath.
