The Revelation Notebook

You know what the Jehovah’s Witnesses Organization teaches about Revelation.  What do Bible Students teach about Revelation.  This wonderful electronic book is a good representation of what many Bible Students believe about the books of Revelation.  As the light has shined brighter and brighter in the past century, our views about Revelation have not changed, they have just become sharper and clearer than ever before.  This book presents an understanding of Revelation that not only harmonizes the whole book, but also harmonizes references from the entire Bible related to it.  We trust this marvelous book will be a blessing and make sense of the book of  Revelation as never before!

  • Daz

    Is it possible that some of God’s people will be protected during the Tribulation – read Revelation:12:14 & there will be others that will suffer through the Tribulation which will lead to the development of their Christian character (Revelation:13:7 & Revelation:12:17). Revelation 7 seems to indicate that there will be many converted during the time of Tribulation.

    Warm & loving regards,
    Daz

      Daz there will be many persons surviving the great tribulation, any that die will die in Adam and they are ransomed to be resurrected. This link has all of the articles on this to help you understand better. Christianity will probably know a little more about what is happening but non Christians will survive also. So one has to ask are they given special protection? Remember judgement day begans afterwards.
