  • Revelation 1:11

    Rev 1:11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

    the first and the last First means foremost in place, chief, preceding all the rest in time, number, rank, dignity, consideration and excellence. Last means uttermost, being in the furthest, greatest or highest degree. Jesus saves to the uttermost (Heb 7:25) because He is the uttermost.

    What thou seest, write in a book - John is here commissioned by Jesus to write down what he sees. We should believe he did just that. Most of what we find in The Revelation needs no interpretation because John was writing what he saw.

    send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia These were seven churches in southwest Asia Minor. This was the sphere of John's influence. The Revelation has influenced far more than the seven churches John was commissioned to write to, but in God's mind they were his responsibility. The sphere of our influence is our responsibility and it should not be taken lightly. We need to be faithful in ours as John was in his.
