Revelation Fellowship Retreat, Sandy Cove MD, 11/20-11/22 – Topics & Speakers

The Millennium in the Orthodox View – H.G. Bishop David – Archdiocese of the Coptic Orthodox Church in North AmericaAnd I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years (Revelation 20:4-5, NKJV).

Armageddon – Fr. Elias Bouboutsis – Greek Orthodox Church – FloridaThen the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared… And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon (Revelation 16:12, 16, NKJV).

The New Jerusalem – Fr. John Hainsworth – Russian Orthodox Church – Vancouver, CanadaThen I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God (Revelation 21:2-4, NKJV)

The Liturgy in the Book of Revelation – Fr Abraam Sleman – Coptic Orthodox Church – New Jersey
And I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder. And I heard the sound of harpists playing their harps. 3 They sang as it were a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth (Revelation 14:2-4, NKJV).
