Hi, and welcome to this quick Sunday Review. Thank you, as ever, for all your support and encouragement.
I was heartened to hear of two groups nearby who have started teaching Revelation and they are doing a very good job of it too.
Many have deep-seated fears about The Book of Revelation. They consider it to be too complicated, too divisive and way too wierd. And this fear or concern is understandable. The Church, over the years, has made a pretty bad job of understanding it. Way too many eccentric intellectuals, brandishing charts and time-tables, have muddied the path.
Revelation has seemed, at times, to be like a spaghetti-hoop soup with dark-monsters lurking within.
But there seems to be a timely change. Many are now re-discovering this magnificent book, and finding the glory within.
I have no doubt that the enemy hates both Revelation and Daniel. Both books describe his demise so clearly.
But the truth will prevail!
Thank you for reading this.
- Revelation 19:11 Faithful and TrueOur testimony is that Jesus has been faithful and true and stood alongside, through every storm that has been thrown at us, and never let go of us ever!
- Revelation 19:10 The Testimony of Jesus…One understanding of the testimony of Jesus is that he will return as the radiant King; and he will bring peace and righteousness to this earth when he establishes his kingdom and reigns from Jerusalem.
- Revelation 19:9 InvitedThe Church as a whole will be invited to the wedding as a corporate being but we will also be invited as individuals, by virtue of our personal salvation that we have received.For many of us who are not usually invited to high-society events and who are often left out and behind, this comes as a blessing indeed!
- Revelation 19:7 Eager AnticipationIn the same way, we are called to look forward to the day when we meet with Christ Jesus, on the day that he returns in power and glory. He is our blessed hope and our lives lived here on earth should be directed towards this coming moment.
- Revelation 19:7 A Wedding!I pray that we will live out our salvation with fear and trembling, and walk closely with our Lord, that we might walk with confidence and reassurance, knowing that we will be warmly welcomed and honoured as a guest, wearing the white robes of righteousness.
