Studied Revelation For Years

I have studied Revelation for many years and I believe have come to the right conclusion that the great tribulation is referring to judgement day. What do you think?

Philippians 2:11 in its context is talking about Jesus Christ as Lord. The early sermons of the apostles affirm His resurrection and coronatioon (His position at the right hand of God), and allude to His intercession for believers, what this passages is refering to is the the new status as Lord. "Name above every name" This name "Lord" This name is the N Testament synonym for O. Testament description of God as sovereign ruler. Both before Isa45:21-23, Mark 15:2, Luke 2:11, John 13:13, 18:37, 20:28) and after (Acts 2:36, 10:36, Rom. 14:9-11, 1 Cor. 8:6, 15:57, Rev. 17:14, 19:16) the exaltation, Scripture affirms that this was Jesus rightful title as the God-Man.

"...What do you think?"

I think you need to study just a wee bit more, Mike.

Most of the Revelation is happening in us today. Rev. 13: 6 "the beast who worship" is inside the churches. Babylon is also refering to church today. The opening of the 7 seals by the Lion of Juda is opening our understanding in the last days.

Ted, why can't allegories be specific? Have you ever read the plays of the ancient Greek dramatists?

Be've seperated....from the world.

And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:
Mark 4:10-12

But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
1 Corinthians 2:13-15

Jesus himself told us in John 5:22 "For not even the Father judges anyone, but He has given all judgment to the Son".

Jesus will judge all men so that Phil 2:11 may be fulfilled "and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father".
The "white throne" judgment is viewed as an unbeliever's judgment primarily because believers will not be judged. However passsages like 2 Cor. 5:10 tell us that believers will stand before Jesus in judgment and be "rewarded" for the deeds done in the body. This judgement for the believer is not described specifically anywhere, so my personal opinion is that ALL men will appear at the white throne.

mark eaton,scripture tells us that believers will not be judged,but their works will be and they will either be rewarded for these works,and those works not of the spirit will be burnt. All these works will be judged by jesus.The great white throne judgement will be done By God the father. Its not really apparent,but most scholars believe this will be the unsaved.

The Great Tribulation and Judgement Day are two different occasions (events). The Great Tribulation is where the AntiChrist rules on Earth, until the Battle of Armagedden (where Christ defeats the AntiChrist). This is also a time where people MUST take the Mark of the Beast (Satan - 666) or have their heads chopped off. Judgement Day is for ALL Christians and Non-Christians (everyone who has ever lived) to give account to God of their lives and works once and for all.

how can revelation be an allegory it is very specific?

Daniel 9:27 talks about a prince that is to come. Who is this prince? Some say Jesus because Daniel 9 is about the coming of the anointed one.

Most of you talk about the Tribulation period and most of you have so much to say about it. My question is, from where do you get all your information about the tribulation coming? Can someone direct me to those passages? It cannot possibly be Daniel 9:27, or is it?
---MarkV. on 6/25/09

you are correct in that the tribulation is a judgement on the world by God for being disobidient. It will last seven years,but it is not Gods final judgement.During this seven years the anti christ will rule,and ultimately kill millions of people.This seven years is the tribulation.The great white throne judgement is Gods last and final judgement which will occur in heaven with everyone who has ever lived,but this is after the tribulation,and might be after jesus rules on earth for 1000 years.
---tom2 on 6/24/09

When you say "judgement day" are you referring to the "Great Day of the Lord". We know that the Great tribulation will last for 3 1/2 years. So are you saying that judgement day is not a literal day but the judgement lasts for the 3 1/2 years of the great tribulation?
---zach8765 on 6/24/09

Sorry, I do not agree.

The bowl and trumpet judgments within the Tribulation period are for "those who dwell upon the earth" and do not include those who have died. If they survive the Tribulation period, they will be separated by Christ in the sheep/goat division.

Those who have died before the Tribulation will be judged at the white throne judgment.

There may be a separate "judgment seat of Christ" judgment for believers. I am uncertain if this will take place at the white throne or not.

Check your chronology > Matthew 24:21-31. Another thing > I have noted how the writer of Revelation needed to be corrected for worshiping an angel, right while he was receiving the vision of Revelation > Revelation 19:9-10, 22:8-9. This he did right while, as he says, "I was in the Spirit on the Lord's Day" (Revelation 1:10). This shows me how any of us can even be in the Holy Spirit . . . so close to God . . . but still sin. And so, we always need to be prayerfully careful to be in God's moment-by-moment leading and control. My point, here, is how Revelation has personal and present-day application. So, are you getting personal and present-day valuable things, while studying Revelation?

Revelation is an allegory, not a preview of the future.

"Tribulations" and "Judgment" are different events.
The Christians have suffered much tribulations
already but there is more to come before Jesus returns.
The judgment has alreay begun
as far as the "investgative phase" is concerned. This phase classifies everyone into the "lost" or "saved" column by the indiviual being made part of the 1st or 2nd resurrectin.
There follow s a 1000 years audit of the decisions rendered and an acknowlegment that all was "fair and
square." This phase will then be followed by the "execution" phase of the judgment, when the lost shall be punished
by being destroyed and consumed by "hell fire"
