The Revelation
All the armies of the world were gathered together to battle against God.

The Revelation

The very last book in the Bible, being the twenty-seventh in the New Testament, and the sixty-sixth in the Bible as a whole, is The Revelation. It was written by the apostle John, towards the end of his life in approximately 95 AD. John had been exiled to the island of Patmos by the Roman authorities, probably for spreading the Christian prophecies, which was an offence at the time.

Whilst he was banished on Patmos, John received from God a series of visions which revealed to him the future that is to come. John's visions show Jesus Christ as the divine shepherd of the Church, the righteous judge of mankind and the victorious king who will reign from His eternal kingdom on Earth.

All quotations from the Bible are taken from the Authorised King James Version.
1.
John saw a creature take a book, or scroll, from the hand of the one who sat on the throne. What type of creature was this?
A bullock
A serpent
A lamb
A dragon
The lamb, which was wounded, was the symbol of Christ who died for our sins.

Revelation 5:6-8
"And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints"
2.
After the Earth has passed away it will be replaced with a new Earth, which has no oceans. What will come down from Heaven to be on this new Earth?
A new Rome
A new Eden
A new Jerusalem
A new Israel
This shall be God's home amongst men, and there shall be no more death or suffering.

Revelation 21:1-4
"And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away"
3.
John saw the Devil being cast into a lake of fire and what else?
Torment
Brimstone
Serpents
Ice
Revelation 20:9-10
"And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever."

Brimstone, or "burn stone," is an alternative name for sulphur
4.
All the armies of the world were gathered together to battle against God. In which place would this battle take place?
Jerusalem
Armageddon
Jericho
Gehenna
Revelation 16:14-16
"For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon."

Armageddon translates into English as Mount Megido, which is the name of a small settlement near to the border between Israel and the Palestinian West Bank
5.
John sees a vision of God's throne, around which are sat 24 elders, and before which are how many beasts?
4 beasts
7 beasts
14 beasts
21 beasts
Revelation 4:6-8
"And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come."

This is similar, though not identical, to Ezekiel's vision, in which he saw creatures which had four faces; those of a lion, an ox, a man and an eagle
6.
Before the battle took place, an angel stood in the sun and cried out to who in a loud voice?
To the birds of the air
To the fish of the sea
To the beasts of the field
To the men of the earth
After the battle there would be plenty of food for carrion birds to dine upon.

Revelation 19:17-19
"And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; that ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army"
7.
John's visions first came to him whilst he was worshipping when he heard a voice speaking to him. What did the voice say?
I am a messenger from God, the herald of the Lord
I am the spirit which is holy, the righteous and the just
I am alpha and omega, the first and the last
I am the presence of the Lord, the glory and the majesty
John is instructed by the voice, which belongs to "one like a son of man," to write down the visions he is going to see, and to send them to the seven churches in Asia Minor (modern day Turkey).

Revelation 1:10-11
"I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea"
8.
John saw seven angels with trumpets, and an eighth angel carrying what?
A drum
A crucifix
A harp
A censer
Revelation 8:5-6
"And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake. And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound."

When the seven trumpets were sounded a series of disasters began to befall the Earth
9.
Concerning the church of Sardis, John says that those who are victorious over sin shall be clothed in which colour?
Purple
White
Blue
Black
Their names will be in the Book of Life and they will belong to Jesus.

Revelation 3:4-5
"Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels"
10.
Addressing the church at Smyrna, John says that many who call themselves Jews are not. Instead John calls them the what of Satan?
The seed of Satan
The shelterers of Satan
The spawn of Satan
The synagogue of Satan
Throughout their hard times at the hands of their persecutors, John tells the people of Smyrna to remain faithful - even if it means their death - and they will receive eternal life.

Revelation 2:9-10
"I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life"
