Revelation, Lesson Forty-two

Day 7 of Week Six

Scripture for today 11:11-14

11But after the three and a half days a breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them.

12Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, "Come up here." And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked on.

13At that very hour there was a severe earthquake and a tenth of the city collapsed. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the survivors were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.

14The second woe has passed; the third woe is coming soon.
