Divisions (run-on sentence OK, direct verbiage from Scripture):

1
15:1-8
John sees heaven before the 7 bowls of God’s wrath are poured
Principle:
God’s people receive glimpses of heaven as they seek and serve Him.
2
16:1-21
Seven angels pour the seven bowls of God’s wrath
Principle:
God’s wrath will destroy His creation completely except for people, who will live eternally in heaven or hell.

 

Subject Sentence (10-word sentence with proper structure):

John watches angels receive and pour bowls of God’s wrath.

 

Aim:

TCMATK God’s wrath is coming and its terrifying details should make us seek Christ for ourselves and share Him with others

 

Application:

1
If you were to delay your decision to accept Christ as Savior, what might you have to endure to be victorious over the beast, his name and his number?
How does knowing what it takes to be victorious over the beast motivate you and what action will you take because of it?
2
What are the seven bowls of God’s wrath and how will you react to avoid them yourself and/or rescue loved ones?
Who will you attempt to rescue from this fate this week?
Which bowl is most disturbing to you and how will this change how you share Christ with others?
How are the seven bowls of wrath God’s true and just judgments?
What does it mean for you to obey Revelation 16:15: “…Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with hi so he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed”?
