Let me start today by asking you a couple of questions, "What in the world are you supposed to be doing with your life? What should your everyday life and activities look like?" Jesus gave us an answer to that in the book of Matthew, chapter 6. Apparently how we live on earth, God’s will for His people, should reflect what is happening in heaven. So what is happening and will continue to happen in heaven? The answers to that are vast depending on who you ask. Thankfully God’s Word doesn’t leave us in the dark when it comes to what we will do in heaven. So lets ask some of the big questions about everyday life in heaven and then let the Word of God give us the answers...

1/3 of the world population of Jews were murdered in the WWII Holocaust.  2/3s of the world population of Jews will be murdered in the Tribulation Holocaust (Zech. 13:8). Who will be driving this anti-Semitism and why? Poised to begin the second half of the Tribulation, Revelation 12 reveals the who and why of the Tribulation Holocaust.
Several of the symbols are interpreted in the chapter itself so we will read the entire chapter.

The fact of a literal heaven permeates the pages of God’s Word. It appears about 550 times in the Bible.

We are studying Revelation 11:15-19. On the Tribulation Timeline this places us very near the midpoint of the Tribulation. It is at the midpoint of the Tribulation that the activities of the counterfeit trinity will kick in to high gear.  The parentheses of chapters 12-14 explain the "why" and "what" of the counterfeit trinity’s intensified campaign. Revelation 11:1-2 reveals that a third Jewish temple will be operational at the beginning of the Tribulation. This Tribulation Temple will not be sanctioned by God and, in fact, will be censured by the Two Witnesses who's ministry during the first half of the Tribulation is revealed in 11:3-13. As we come to Revelation 11:15-19, 6 of the 7 Trumpet Judgments have already been executed. Here, near the midpoint of the Tribulation, the 7th Trumpet is sounded.

A headline in a Michigan newspaper read the following a few years ago "It May Be Harder to Get to Hell This Year."

There was a bridge that was the only way into the town that was going to be repaired and was going to take about a year for the project to be completed... A project that could cause Hell, Michigan to go bankrupt.

Unfortunately the real place called hell in the Bible is not going bankrupt and it is not hard to get to. In fact to get there all you have to do is nothing. Just pretend like there are no absolutes, that sin is no big deal, that Jesus is just a nice option, and that a loving God would never send people to hell if there even is a God. First off we must note that God absolutely exists as proven by scientific laws such as the Law of Cause and Effect, the Law of First Cause, and the laws of Thermodynamics. Second, God has clearly taught us that there is a literal place called "hell" as taught in Luke 16:19-31. It may surprise you to know that 11 of the 12 times the word "gehenna" (hell) occurs in the New Testament it is from the lips of the Savior Himself. Make no mistake about it, Jesus believed in a literal hell.

Throughout history various men have sought to rule the world. None succeeded. In the Tribulation a man will succeed. How will this come about? The Scriptures reveal that…

2 Thessalonians 2:9–11 (ESV) 

9 The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, 10 and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false,

Antichrist will achieve world dominion. He will be energized and enabled by Satan. Citizens of the Tribulation who have no commitment to truth will fall prey to his deceptions. Chief among his deceptions will be his resurrection from the dead. The Antichrist will be part of a counterfeit trinity consisting of himself, Satan and the False Prophet. Mimicking Jesus’ death and resurrection, Antichrist will be killed and will rise from the dead. Three times this counterfeit resurrection is mentioned in Revelation 13. When will the death and resurrection of the Antichrist take place? Our study of the Two Witnesses in Revelation 11 enables us to identify when on the Tribulation timeline Antichrist will die and be resurrected. First, Revelation 11:3 reveals the Two Witnesses will prophesy for 1,260 days (3 1/2 years).

Introduction:

4,000 years ago in the midst of intense tragedy and pain a man named Job asked the question of the ages, "If a man dies, will he come back to life?" (Job 14:14).

Not long ago the Discovery Channel featured a show about the ten great mysteries of the world. Some of those mysteries included the lost city of Atlantis, UFO's, Bigfoot, and the Loch Ness Monster. But the overwhelming number one mystery was life after death. 

Transition:

So in the next 6 weeks we will be taking a look at what the Bible says about what lies behind the veil of death, what happens when we take our final breath, what heaven will be like and what we will do there, what hell will be like and what people will do there, whether purgatory is a real place, and other topics like whether animals will be in heaven, those that commit suicide will be in heaven and a host of other fun topics. 

Here's how we're going to tackle the topic of life after death... We are going to ask a host of questions that many people seem to be asking and discover the answers from the Word of God! So, here we go...

A Muslim mosque, The Dome of the Rock, presently dominates the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Two Jewish Temples have stood on this site. The first, built by King Solomon, was destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 B.C. The second, built by Zerubbabel, was destroyed by the Romans in 70 A.D.

In 637 A.D. Muslim forces conquered Jerusalem. The Dome of the Rock was completed in 691 A.D. Just a few meters south of The Dome of the Rock is a second mosque even more sacred to the Muslims which is called the Al Aqsa Mosque.

The Scriptures make clear that a third Jewish Temple will be built on the Temple Mount. It will be operative during the Tribulation. The Antichrist will desecrate this temple by erecting in it a statue of himself (Dan. 9:27; Matt. 24:15; 2 Thess. 2:3-4; Rev. 13:11-14). This is called the abomination of desolation by our Lord (Matt. 24:15). It will take place mid way through the seven year Tribulation.

At present, building a third Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount seems impossible. How it will come about is not revealed in Scripture. That there will be a Third Jewish Temple is certain. That is the clear message of the first two verses of Revelation 11.
