    Answer to Question 1

    Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him

    Mark 10 verse 17

    The names are mentioned again in Lukes Gospel with one change.
    Instead of Lebbaeus whose surname was Thaddaeus the list says:-
    Judas the brother of James.

    Luke 6 verse 16

    This is quite a difficult question. I have been trying to memorise the names of the twelve disciples for years.

    I just tried it again and could only remember 11.
    The fact that the two lists are not the same also makes it harder.

    Good questions dysert your question, 12 took me a bit of research.

    Answer to question number 12 above the 7 Seal Judgements

    The first four of the seven seals are known as the four horsemen of the Apocalypse.

    The first seal introduces the Antichrist (Revelation 6:1-2).
    The second seal causes great warfare (Revelation 6:3-4).
    The third of the seven seals causes famine (Revelation 6:5-6).
    The fourth seal brings about plague, further famine, and further warfare (Revelation 6:7-8).

    The fifth seal tells us of those who will be martyred for their faith in Christ during the end times (
    Revelation 6:9-11). God hears their cries for justice and will deliver it in His timing—in the form of the sixth seal, along with the trumpet and bowl judgments.


    When the sixth of the seven seals is broken, a devastating earthquake occurs, causing massive upheaval and terrible devastation—along with unusual astronomical phenomena (Revelation 6:12-14). Those who survive are right to cry out, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?” (Revelation 6:16-17).



    The seven trumpets are described in Revelation 8:6-13. The seven trumpets are the “contents” of the seventh seal (Revelation 8:1-5).

    Dysert here is the answer to Question 13

    13/ What are the 7 Trumpet judgments of Revelation

    Revelation 8:7
    [FONT='Times New Roman','serif']1/ When the first angel blew his trumpet, once again hail and fire fell upon Earth [/FONT]
    [FONT='Times New Roman','serif']
    Rev. 8:8-9
    2/ Then the second angel sounded: And something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea

    Rev. 8:10-11
    3/ Then the third angel sounded: And a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch

    Rev. 8:12
    4/ Then the fourth angel sounded: And a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars

    Rev. 8:13
    5/ And I looked, and I heard an eagle flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, ’Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!’”
    [/FONT]
    Rev. 9:1-12
    5/ Then the fifth angel sounded: And I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit.

    Rev. 9:13-16
    6/ Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, ’Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates’. So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind.

    7/ The sounding of the "SEVENTH TRUMPET" includes all that happens down to chapter 20:3. When it sounded John heard "Great Voices" in Heaven saying--"THE KINGDOMS OF THIS WORLD ARE BECOME THE KINGDOMS OF OUR LORD, AND OF HIS CHRIST; AND HE SHALL REIGN FOR EVER AND EVER."

    Dysert here is the Answer to Question 14

    14/ What are the 7 Bowl/Vial judgments of Revelation

    The Seven bowls are a set of plagues mentioned in Revelation 16.

    They are recorded as apocalyptic events that were seen in the vision of the Revelation of Jesus Christ, by John of Patmos. Seven angels are thus given seven bowls of God's wrath, each consisting of judgements full of the wrath of God These seven bowls of God's wrath are poured out on the wicked and the followers of the Antichrist after the sounding of the seven trumpets.

    Dysert thank you for your Bible question.

    Can we move away from Revelation now as even the experts struggle to get the full meaning of the Book of Revelation ?

    And I am no expert. I have had no formal training in the teachings of the Bible. But Jesus has made the gospel message very simple for us. Jesus say we are to come to him as a little child.

    I'm game to move away from Revelation. They just happened to be the first questions that popped into my head (I've been a teacher of Revelation for most of my life).

    I have read the Book of Revelation and I freely admit that I found it very hard to understand.

    Now compare that to the four Gospels. The four gospels are completely straight forward.

    Here is the answer to Question 8

    8/ Why did the kingdom of Israel split into two separate countries ?

    Jeroboam and the people rebelled, with the ten northern tribes breaking away and forming a separate kingdom. The new breakaway kingdom continued to be called Kingdom of Israel, and was also known as Samaria, or Ephraim or the northern Kingdom. The realm Rehoboam was left with was called Kingdom of Judah.

    The assembly for the coronation of Solomon's successor, Rehoboam, was called at Shechem, the one sacredly historic city within the territory of the Ten Tribes. Before the coronation took place the assembly requested certain reforms in the policy followed by Rehoboam's father, Solomon. The reforms requested would materially reduce the royal exchequer and hence its power to continue the magnificence of Solomon's court. The older men counseled Rehoboam at least to speak to the people in a civil manner (it is not clear whether they counseled him to accept the demands). However, the new king sought the advice from the people he had grown up with, who advised the king to show no weakness to the people, and to tax them even more, which Rehoboam did. He proclaimed to the people,
    "Whereas my father laid upon you a heavy yoke, so shall I add tenfold thereto. Whereas my father chastised (tortured) you with whips, so shall I chastise you with scorpions. For my littlest finger is thicker than my father's loins; and your backs, which bent like reeds at my father's touch, shall break like straws at my own touch."

    Reason for the Revolt
    Reason for the Revolt of the 10 norther tribes was Rehoboam's promise of heavy taxes and the promise of harsh treatment in the future. The 10 tribes in the north had historically always worked together. The tribe of Judah in the south had historically been semi independent.

    I Kings Chapter 12 verse 20
