Revelation :- (from the foreword of my Bible) "Just as Genesis is the 'book of beginnings', Revelation is the 'book of consummation'. In it the divine programme of redemption is brought to fruition, and the Holy Name of God is vindicated before all Creation. . . . the book is the unveiling of the Character and programme of God. . . Revelation centers around visions and symbols of the resurrected Christ, who alone has authority to Judge the earth, to remake it, and to rule it in Righteousness.


Revelation 1

What did I learn of God? - He has ensured His people have the opportunity to know what important events will take place in the future. the Holy Spirit is the 'seven-fold' Spirit (ie. perfect). Jesus Christ is the faithful witness, the first-born from the dead, and the Ruler over the kings of the earth. He loved us and has made it possible for us to be freed from our Sins through His Blood. He has made His disciples a kingdom of priests. Jesus will be seen by everyone when He returns to earth. Creation began, and will end, with Him. He is Almighty. The sight of the Son of Man will be a great shock. He was dead, but is Alive for evermore. He decides where each person will spend Eternity. He likens churches to lampstands - lights shining in the darkness - and His messenger angels to each church as a 'star'.

What did I learn of myself? - Just by reading this prophetic book I will be Blessed. Jesus Christ Loved me and made it possible for me to be washed clean, from my Sin, in His Blood. If I am on earth at the time I will see Him return to earth in Glory. Will I have reason to fear Him?

What did I praise God for? - that He has made it possible for me to be cleansed from my Sin.

What did I pray for? - His Wisdom to understand the relevance of this book to me.

What is this saying in one sentence? - John's Vision of the Son of Man (Christ)

Quote:- (Harriet Beecher Stowe) " Looking unto Jesus and thinking about Him is a better way to meet and overcome Sin than any physical austerities or spiritual self-reproaches. It is by looking at Him that we are changed."

Note:- It has been suggested that the "lord's day" was when everyone had to put a pinch of incense onto an altar and proclaim 'Ceasar is lord' . . . the Christians proclaimed 'Jesus is Lord' instead - so they were killed in various painful ways.

Revelation 2

What did I learn of God? - He knows all about His people's work for Him, patience, acceptance of Evil and moral laxity, and adherence to Truth - or lack of them. He remembers each person's first love for Him, and knows if it has maintained, grown or diminished. He Blesses those who overcome difficulties in His Service. He knows the difficulties, fears and traumas of those who are faithful to Him. His Word is like a sword (Heb. 4:12) False doctrine, and those who accept it, anger Him. He searches the minds and hearts of His people and gives accordingly.

What did I learn of myself? - God knows of my strengths and weaknesses. I do not need to fear any of the things I will suffer. If I am faithful to the Lord, in all things, until death I will receive Life. Do I always overcome Evil with good? Do I accept false doctrine ( i.e. anything not done or accepted by Jesus and the Apostles) Am I just faithful to Jesus, or passionate about Jesus?

What did I praise God for? - His Word.

What did I pray for? - those folk in churches that teach, or accept, false doctrine to heed God’s Word.

What is this saying in one sentence? letters to churches in Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamon, and Thyatira.

Quote:- (Lawrence O. Richards) "It's not enough to be doctrinally correct. We must be spiritually erect. It's not enough to know the Word, we must do it. Righteousness is not a shroud, but working clothes . . . . . the deader the faith of those around us, the more alive and active our faith must be."

Revelation 3

What did I learn of God? - He Judges folk by the spirit that controls them - ie. a person who doesn't allow the Holy Spirit to control them is not spiritually Alive but Dead. He Judges each person individually. He does not always announce what He will do in advance, but may act when it is least expected (like a thief in the night). He is Holy and True. No one can shut doors He opens, or open doors He shuts. He Loves those faithful to Him however weak they may appear, and opens doors for them. He will keep those who persevere in trusting Him from the worst trials. He is the Creator. He is not pleased with 'lukewarm' Christians and may remove them. He rebukes and chastens those He Loves, to encourage their repentance. He only goes where His Presence is welcomed. He Blesses those who overcome Evil in His Name.

What did I learn of myself? - Am I really Alive in Christ? Do I submit every area of my life to Christ? or am I in danger of being considered Dead by Him? Do I do all I can to strengthen my relationship with Christ? Do I fear having my name removed from Jesus' book of Life? If God opens a door for me no one can shut it, neither can I open a door He has shut. Do I always keep His Word? Do I ever deny, in word or action, that Jesus is my Lord? Do I persevere to know Him better and please Him more? Do I overcome Evil with good? Am I 'on fire' for Jesus Christ? or am I 'lukewarm'- a Christian in name only, comfortable and socially acceptable? Is Christ asking me to exchange fellowship with the world for more intimate, and challenging, fellowship with Him? Do I see myself as Christ sees me and repent all behaviour that displeases Him? Do I welcome the Living Lord into every area of my life.

What did I praise God for? - that He only rebukes me because He Loves me.

What did I pray for? - to see myself as He sees me - and have His Help to correct whatever displease Him.

What is this saying in one sentence? - the Dead, the lukewarm, and the faithful.

Revelation 4

What did I learn of God? - He is unique and beautiful. He is surrounded by purity. He is Holy. He is Almighty. He is Worthy to receive Glory, Honour and Power. He Created all things; and those that have existed to the present day only do so because it is His Will.

What did I learn of myself? - Am I fully aware of God's Holiness? Do I know, of a surety, that God is Almighty? Do I believe Christ is the Creator?(John 1:1-4) Do I believe He is Alive now? and that He will return to earth in Glory? Do I know Him to be worthy to have Glory, Honour and Power? Do I honour Him sufficiently?

What did I praise God for? - being Himself.

What did I pray for? - that I never forget His awesome Power.

What is this saying in one sentence? - God's throne room.

Note:- The Person sitting on the Throne and the creatures crying 'Holy, Holy, Holly' is a reminder of Visions both Isaiah (ch.6) and Ezekiel(1:10) were given and confirmation that Jesus Christ and Almighty God are One and the same.

Revelation 5

What did I learn of God? - He Sacrificed Himself for the people He Created. Some things He tells no one until the time He considers right. The Blood of Jesus Christ Redeems those who trust Him. He regards the prayers of His people as incense. He has multitudes of angels to do His bidding. Jesus Christ is worthy to have Power, Riches, Wisdom, Strength, Honour, Glory and Blessings. He has Lived, and will Live, for ever and ever.

What did I learn of myself? – does my life honour God? Do I please Him by trusting Him sufficiently to pray to Him expecting His answer to be whatever is right? Do I trust Jesus Christ to be my Saviour and to Redeem me? Do I fulfill the conditions for Redemption? Do I consider Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God? Do I think He is worthy to have Power, Riches, Wisdom, Strength, Honouur, Glory and Blessings for evermore? Do I worship Him?

What did I praise God for? - Sacrificing Himself to redeem me.

What did I pray for? - to do all H requires of me and that I will always pray as He directs.

What is this saying in one sentence? the Lamb of God takes the scroll and is worshipped.

Note:- in AD406 16 year old Patrick was taken to Ireland as a slave. After escaping he, later, returned as a Christian missionary, and was instrumental in Christianity in Ireland. His original prayer has developed into "Christ be with me, Christ within me, Christ behind me, Christ before me, Christ beside me, Christ to win me, Christ to comfort and restore me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ in quiet, Christ in danger”.

Revelation 6

What did I learn of God? - When the Lamb(Jesus Christ) opens the first 4 seals various coloured horses and their riders will be sent out to the whole world to cause death and destruction in various ways. When He breaks the 5th seal those who have been martyred for their faith in Him will be given white robes. When He breaks the 6th seal there will be a great earthquake, the earth and sky will be changed and the Wrath of the Lamb will be evident to everyone everywhere.

What did I learn of myself? - If I have not accepted the Salvation bought for me by the Lamb before this time it will be too late. If I do not respond to God's grace now I will be punished.

What did I praise God for? - the many warnings and opportunities He has given mankind to repent and turn to Him.

What did I pray for? - those of His people suffering at the present time for their faith.

What is this saying in one sentence? - the Lamb will break the seals.

Note:- If I had lived 350 years ago and had a vision of airports and motorways today how would I have described what I saw? Maybe 'enormous birds that roar' and 'carts with no horses, either chasing each other or hurtling towards each other at great speed? In Revelation John also saw what he didn't have words to describe.

Revelation 7

What did I learn of God? - He Rules the wind. 144,000 of His Israelite servants are, or will be, sealed for His Service (Missionaries protected from evil in the great Tribulation?). He, alone, is able to offer Salvation. Blessing, Glory, Wisdom, Thanksgiving, Honour, Power and Might always have been, and always will, belong to Him. He wipes away the tears of those faithful to Him throughout the great Tribulation and leads them to fountains of Living water.

What did I learn of myself? - Have I accepted the Salvation God offers? Will I accept the Strength He offers to be faithful to Him through every difficulty I face? or will I allow fear to control me?

What did I praise God for? - the Strength He gives those being faithful to Him.

What did I pray for? - that my faith in God will always be stronger than any fear.

What is this saying in one sentence? - 12,000 Missionaries from each tribe of Israel will be protected in the Great Tribulation, and a great multitude of His faithful people will perish.

What did I learn of God? –He Lives for ever and ever. He created the Heavens and earth and everything in them.

He warns of future unpleasantness then the final mystery will no longer be delayed.

What did I praise God for? - being in ultimate control of His universe.

What did I pray for? - His Strength to face whatever the future holds for me.

What is this saying in one sentence? - the 7 thunders, and John eats the little book.

Quote:- (Lawrence O. Richards) ". . . even the Gospel is sweet and bitter. . . . welcoming Christ into our hearts we rejoice in it's sweetness. But then, suddenly, we realise the Promise of Salvation implies that all (people) are lost . . .and in refusing to listen, doom themselves to Judgment."

Am I strong enough to resist everything un-Godly (worshipping the beast) in my daily life? Will I accept the mark of the beast on my forehead or right hand? and therefore experience the Wrath of God for ever? Am I always faithful to the Lord Jesus Christ? Do I follow Him wherever He goes?

Will I remain faithful to Him when confronted by pain and deprivation? Or will I deny Him and worship another?

It doesn't matter how weak I may appear, by remaining true to God I will triumph over Evil. I must remember that the Holy God, who welcomes those who come to Him through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ, Judges those who refuse His offer of Salvation harshly. I must warn others of the result of turning away from Him.

He will ensure a great earthquake decimates the cities of the world at the same time, and that 100 pound hailstones fall.

What did I learn of myself? - If I don't repent all Sin and worship Almighty God and remain faithful to Him now, when He withholds His Mercy I will be very unlikely to turn to Him and be Saved.

What did I learn of myself? - Do I happily live among those God regards as Evil? If I value an un-Godly lifestyle I will be 'at home' with Evil. Power and luxuries could be devastating to my spiritual life. Do my possessions encourage me to turn away from God and those in need? Is it my material benefits that give my life 'worth'? Do I recognise the demonic in what others consider gives meaning to life? I would do well to remember that vengeance belongs to God (Romans 12:19).

What did I praise God for? - His mighty Strength.

What did I pray for? - the wisdom to turn away from those possessions that would lead me away from the Lord.

What is this saying in one sentence? - God's Judgment on Babylon.

What did I praise God for? - His offer of Salvation.

What did I pray for? - Wisdom to recognise the 'sign of the beast'. and strength to resist it. (eg. to know if having my bank number on my right hand leads to his mark, or not)

What did I learn of God? - He will consign the devil to the bottomless pit for 1,000 years. Those of His people who had been killed for not worshipping the Beast and having his mark on their forehead or hand will be resurrected to reign with Christ for 1,000 years.

Then He will send fire to devour them and cast the Devil into the lake of fire and brimstone with the Beasts and False Prophet. Then He will sit on a great white throne and Judge the dead according to what they have done - according to what is written in the Book of Life and other books relating to everyone's life on earth. He will cast everyone not found in the Book of Life into the lake of fire with Death and Hades.

What did I learn of myself? - I must ensure my name is written in the Book of Life; the only way to do that is to trust Jesus' death on the Cross to have paid my penalty for my Sin; and live to please Him the rest of my life.

What did I praise God for? - His offer of Salvation.

What did I pray for? - those who have not yet accepted God's offer of Forgiveness through Jesus Christ.

What is this saying in one sentence :- those who were killed for not worshipping the Beast reign with Christ, and Satan is bound for 1,000 years after which he will be thrown into the lake of fire with everyone whose name is not in the Book of Life.

Quote:- (Anne Graham Lotz) “Have these descendants submitted to Christ, and work for Christ just because everyone else does? However it happens, somewhere along the line, the worship of Christ becomes a ritual, work for Christ becomes a job, obedience to Christ becomes orthodoxy, a holy lifestyle becomes culture, and a personal relationship with Christ becomes a religion. The majority of the inhabitants of planet earth go through the outward motions of worshipping and working for Christ. He will be on their lips but their hearts will be far from Him.”

He will dwell with His people and wipe away all their tears and they will forget everything that caused pain. He will make all things new. He is Alpha (the beginning) and Omega (the end). He will give the water of Life to all who thirst for it. His Glory will illuminate the New Jerusalem and Jesus Christ will be it's Light.

What did I learn of myself? - Is my name written in the Lamb’s book of Life? Will I overcome all difficulties and temptations? to be involved in occultism of the New Age? to tell lies? to be an idolater? to be sexually immoral? to murder? to be cowardly? - I will not be able to enter the New Heaven or live with God unless, while on earth, I have been purified by the Blood Jesus Christ shed and remain faithful to Him.
