Message outline

Title: Tribulation (Part 4) -Woe’s from a Fathers Heart

Series: Revelation

Text: Revelation 9-11

Main Idea: God’s Kingdom is Coming; His Will is Being Done


  1. Woe from a Father’s Heart (Matthew 23:37-39)
  • God’s Desire (v.37a)
  • Humanities Rebelliousness (v.37b)
  • God’s Determination (Vv. 38-39)
  1. Three Woe’s (Revelation 8:6-12)
  • The Fifth Trumpet: First Woe (Vv.1-12)
  • The Sixth Trumpet: Second Woe (Vv.13-21)
    • Interlude: God’s Patient Delay (See 2 Peter 3:8-10)
      • Unsealed Humanity do not repent (Vv.20-21)
      • Yet God’s Kingdom Comes (10:1-11)
        • Note: Ephesians 1:3-14; 20-23
      • Gospel Witness Continues (11:1-14)
        • Note: Deuteronomy 19:15-21
      • The Seventh Trumpet: Third Woe (11:15-19)
        • While those who look forward to Jesus and cry out, “Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord”, those who do not await great wrath and eternal separation from God; ie torment.

Going deeper questions (SMall Group)

  • What stood out to you about this message and why?
  • From the passage in Bullet Point #1, can you sympathize with Christ’s woe over Jerusalem? Share that experience.  Can you relate on the side of Jerusalem receiving the woe?  Share how.
  • If you were living during the trumpet / woe judgments, and on the side of Christ (sealed) would you be bold to witness or afraid? How does this affect your courage today?

The book of Revelation is similar in a sense to “A Christmas Carol” where the character, Ebenezer Scrooge is gifted with a vision / experience that allows him to “wake up” and change.  You and I are gifted with a similar experience with Revelation.  How is our study of Revelation changing you?  Is it affecting your prayer life?  Is it affecting your witness? Is it affection your personal relationship with God?  Share how.
