1. Read Revelation 20:11-15
2. This scene here depicts the final judgment. In doing so the first event we see take place is earth and heaven fleeing from God’s presence. What does this mean and entail?
3. In v.12 we find the great and small standing before the throne and books being opened. What does this first set of books contain? How will they be used in the final judgment?
4. What is the book of life? What is contained in it? How will it be used in the final judgment?
5. In this passage we are confronted with the very uncomfortable truth about hell. Do you believe in hell? How do you respond to those who say it is not a real place?
6. John describes hell in v.15 as a lake of fire. Should we take that description literally? Why or why not? What is that description meant to communicate about it?
7. Our passage says that anyone’s name who is not found written in the book of life will be cast into the lake of fire. How can one be assured that their name is in the book of life?
8. What encouragement can you take from this passage as a believer?
9. What practical application can you make from this text/sermon?
