Saints Sing and Sinners Salute
The mission objective for the Mini Bible College is to get people into the Word of God and to get the Word of God into the people. One key objective in reading the Book of Revelation should be to worship God and the Christ of the Revelation, who is King of kings and Lord of lords. If Jesus the Son of God said He did not know, we must be humble about the chronology of all the events covered in the Revelation.
The Assignment of the Apostle
The Revelation has to do with the things that shall take place in the future. John has a revelation and is told that the seven lampstands are the churches and the One in the midst of the lampstands is Christ. Chapters four and five are absolutely beautiful, filled with profound truth about heaven. Chapters six through nineteen focus on one little seven-year period known as the Great Tribulation, which is one among all the events called the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
The Sign Language of the Savior
This word -revelation- is the English way of expressing the Greek word -apocalypses,- which means, -the pulling back of a veil.- When we study in the area of the future, spiritual things that are yet to be fulfilled, we really need the Master Key, the Holy Spirit. God the Father is turning the center of worship in heaven from Himself to His Son, the Lamb, Who looks as if He has been slain, expressing the essence of Who and what God is.
When God Pulls Back the Veil
The little Epistle of Jude expressed concern over the heresies or false teachers who speak against faith in Jesus Christ, His death and resurrection. Jude tells us false teachers are like clouds promising rain but producing nothing. The Revelation is the most difficult book in the Bible to understand for it is written in sign language. God pulled back the veil and gave John a revelation of Jesus Christ and of things to come which cannot be known without the revelation.
The Confession that Confirms
John tells that we must love one another, then he gives us ten reasons why. The love chapter of the Bible tells us to love because love is of God. God is love. Love is the essence of Who God is. -This commandment we have from Him, that he who loves God, will also love his brother.- We love God because He first loved us and perfect love casts out all fear. It is impossible to be a secret disciple of Jesus Christ.
The Anointing that Assures
In First John we see more assurances of salvation- love for fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, love for God the Father, and the anointing of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is Who makes us know what we know spiritually. John also points out that the children of God do not make it a practice to sin. Our salvation is not based upon how our hearts may feel. Our salvation is based upon the fact that we believe the Gospel.
