The Revelation of Jesus Christ
9:15 AM - Sunday Morning
God Himself gave “The Revelation of Jesus Christ” to John, the apostle, while exiled on the Isle of Patmos. Why? To show His servants (that includes us), the things that must soon take place.
Currently we are taking a break over the Summer.
We will pick up our study on the Book of Revelation in the Fall.
Lord willing we will resume on September 8th.
Please feel free to read the following information.
Christ gave “The Revelation of Jesus Christ” to John as the last book closing the Cannon, the sixty-six books of the Bible. It is the last book for good reasons.
A younger Christian would have a more challenging time to understand the Apocryphal style in which John authored this book. Even more mature Christians today often find themselves reluctant to study this book for that very same reason. “There are far too many images that I cannot understand.” Yet, we find this style of writing in several Old Testament books and in the books called the Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha books. The Jewish people of the Old Testament and early Christians found in the New Testament had no problem recognizing this so-called mystifying symbolism. Yes, you too can understand these images. They are all explained within the text, or by earlier use in Scripture. The only one not found in Scripture per se, is found in tradition. Come find out which one.
Do you want motivation to study this book?
The very third verse gives us that proper incentive.
Revelation 1:3 (ESV)
“Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written in it, for the time is near.”
Notice in the above verse that the Blessing goes to the one who reads aloud. That includes the Pastor(s), Bible Teacher(s), and even individuals that do so. However, the Blessing goes further and tells us that those who hear, and who keep receive a Blessing.
With that in mind, why would you not want to go forward and at least hear what He has to say, so that you can keep what He wants us to keep?
Come join us Sunday mornings promptly at 9:15 A.M. to receive your Blessings, this coming fall. We will have a brief review of Chapters 1 - 3 and then - Hold onto you hats, the best is yet to come!
