Yesterday on Grace Street, John Shorey presented a master class on the book of Revelation that brought truth and wisdom beyond what many people find in classes at a Bible College.
The talk on unraveling the mystery of Revelation focused on the Scriptures in the Bible that clearly show us when the rapture is going to happen and the ways that God’s people are going to be impacted before the return of Christ.
Six things need to happen before the rapture according to Shorey’s teachings. The first will actually come from a major event, the collapse of the world economy. That will lead to what is shown in Revelation 13:1: a one-world government is formed.
Shorey also outlined a series of parallels between Matthew 24 and Revelation 6, where God showed Matthew the things that he would reveal decades later to John. However, Matthew didn’t understand the significance of what he was seeing at the time.
However, Shorey wasn’t done amazing those in attendance with the way the Word is outlining the way the end times are going to arrive.
He shared about the scriptures and how many of the descriptions of the mountains shaking down and the sky rolling up like a scroll parallels real life volcanoes.
“When Mount St. Helens erupted,” Shorey said, “there were great black clouds of smoke and ash that rushed through the sky at 200 miles per hour. Witnesses said they looked just like a rolling scroll.”
He said that the volcano below Yellowstone is being saved for after the sixth sign of the return of the King.
The only negative that people in attendance had to say was that time ran out and John Shorey had to stop with his incredible teaching!
