Revelation & Leviticus


The language of the book of Revelation is biblical imagery and its message is referring to the fulfillment of the Old Testament Scriptures from which its language originates, especially the four sevenfold judgments previously mentioned in Leviticus 26. Keep in mind that the amount of each judgment is recorded in the corresponding scriptures of Revelation. The following chart compares Revelation with Leviticus 26:

7 Seals

A One-Quarter Judgment

...if they don't repent, God will send 7 stronger judgments.

Revelation 5 & 6

Leviticus 26:18

7 Trumpets

A One-Third Judgment

...if they don't repent, God will send 7 stronger judgments.

Revelation 8 & 9

Leviticus 26:21

7 Thunders

Not Revealed (possibly a one-half judgment)

...if they don't repent, God will totally destroy them.

Revelation 10

Leviticus 26:24

7 Vials

The Final Judgment

...the total destruction of Jerusalem—Babylon is fallen.

Revelation 16

Leviticus 26:28

Note that the seventh occurrence of each of these judgments in the book of Revelation uses approximately the same language: Voices, thunderings, lightnings, and an earthquake. Moses experienced similar occurrences on Mount Sinai when he received the Law from God. In both instances God was showing how He would use the Law to judge those who refused His grace.


Revelation & Ezekiel


The books of Revelation and Ezekiel are basically the same books written with the same biblical imagery. In most cases they prophesy about the same time period, and they deal with the same events. This comparison is easy to prove by simply reading the book of Revelation along side the book of Ezekiel. This comparison quickly reveals that both these books deal with the same destruction of Jerusalem, and they both end with the same symbolic picture of the establishment of God's New Jerusalem (Church Kingdom) in the earth. We can see from these comparisons that most of the book Ezekiel dealt with events relevant to John's day; however, it does contain some prophecies that were relevant to Ezekiel's day.
