Bible Study Notes on Revelation 21 – 20170807

Revelation 21:1  "...a new heaven and a new earth..." I'm thinking he's talking about the earth and the heaven around it, the atmosphere.  Not sure if this means the old one is completely gone and the new one was created or if the old one was transformed into the new just as our bodies will …

Revelation 16:1  "...voice from the temple saying to the seven angels..." Again from the temple.  Direct commands, direct control. 1  "...the wrath of God on the earth" Concluding acts of vengeance on the people of earth, at least those who are rebelling against Him.  It's just a taste of what is in store if they …
