Revelation 18-Genesis 2 April 7-13 Answers…
7\Revelation 18
What are we to do, so that we will not receive any of her plagues?
Rev 18:4 Then I heard another voice from heaven say: "Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues; (NIV)
Why were the saints, apostles and prophets to rejoice?
Rev 18:20 Rejoice over her, O heaven! Rejoice, saints and apostles and prophets! God has judged her for the way she treated you.'"(NIV)
What is this chapter about?
This chapter borrows from the Old Testament description of the fall of ancient Babylon (see Jeremiah 50,51). In the past, Babylon had enslaved the people of God. During the Dark Ages the Catholic Church dominated over the truth of God. The Papacy became wealthy and evil. Toward the end of time this church would lose influence and become a place where the unclean would resort. 
8\Revelation 19
What does the great multitude in heaven show us (v.1)? 
Rev 19:1 After this I heard what sounded like the roar of a great multitude in heaven shouting: "Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God,
In spite of the evil through the ages, there were faithful ones through the ages. These are gathered in heaven where they praise their Lord. 
The bride which is the church was dressed in fine linen, what did it stand for?
Rev 19:7 Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. 8 Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear." (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the saints.)(NIV)
Who is the rider who is called Faithful and True?
Rev 19:11 I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war. (NIV)
This is our Lord Jesus. He is true (John 14:6), Faithful (Revelation 1:5), King (I Timothy 6:15), and is known as the Word (John 1:1). He will eventually conquer every enemy (1 Corinthians 15:25,26). The judgment is likened to a victory in which all enemies are laid out to devouring animals and birds. 
9\Revelation 20
Who is the dragon?
The dragon is the Devil. This chapter details the Devil=s career seemed in regard 
To the Anations@ (20:3,8). The word Anation@ is the same word also translated AGentiles@ in the New Testament. Thus, this chapter is telling us that the Devil controlled the Gentiles until the gospel bound him (Matthew 12:29; 2 Corinthians 4:3-6). He then lost his unrestrained power over the Gentiles as they turned to the Lord. In history, we see astrology, idolatry, etc. fall from power and influence. This binding would last until the time of the Gentile ended which was when the Jews regained Jerusalem in 1967 (cf. Luke 21:24). Since 1967 we have witnessed an expansion of the occult, idolatry, etc. These powers are to gain influence until the church seems threatened. God then intervenes and Satan is punished. 
Rev 20:2 He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.(NIV)
Who was Gog and Magog (revelation setting)?
Rev 20:8 and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth-- Gog and Magog-- to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore.
Magog was a son of Japeth (Genesis 10:2). Gog was a prince of the people of Magog (Ezekiel 38:2). Josephus applied this name to the Scythians. Later writers apply it to the Tartars of Russia. In the Revelation setting it means all the ungodly nations of the earth who oppose the people of God led by a godless force. 
What book do you want your name to be found written in?

15 If anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. 
10\Revelation 21

What was the city made of?
Rev 21:18 The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass.
Who will be in heaven?
Rev 21:27 Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life. (NIV)
11\Revelation 22 
Who will have the right to the tree of life?
Rev 22:14 "Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. (NIV)
Where will those who practice magic arts, immorality, murderers and idolaters and all who practice falsehood be?
Rev 22:15 Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. (NIV)
If you add or take away from the word what will happen to you?
Rev 22:18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book.
19 And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book. (NIV)
