Episode 44 - Revelation 11, The Great City, what is it? Where are the Witnesses slain? Sodom and Egypt, Israel. Homosexuality, Gay Pride. Israel’s Future. A Jew’s only hope.

Posted on September 1st, 2018

In our introduction today, we'll discuss the Great City of Revelation 11, where the witnesses are slain. What is this Great City that is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt? What does the rest of Revelation say? What does the immediate context specify? There is no other place "where their Lord was slain" but Jerusalem of the nation of Israel. This place is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt. What does that mean? How does this help us to understand Israel's future? Do we see a taste of their future in their present? An examination of Christian discrimination in Israel and the incredible prevalence of "Gay Pride" for all ages in Israel seems to fit the very state we see in Revelation 11. What is a Jew's hope? Some future salvation? Or the only name given under Heaven by which we must be saved? Hasn't the Savior come? Won't the Judge of all the earth come next? Standing even at the door? We'll discuss.

We'll cover an interesting portion of our reading, and cover the beliefs of the Vaudois, and answer the question: How knowledgeable of the Bible were the old Baptists? Did they have the Bible?
