THE FINALE OF THE REVELATION STUDY

We are at the close of our journey in Revelation. The final two verses of Revelation 22:20-21 say, “He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus! The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen.” (ESV)

 As a final point to my comments in the previous blog, please note that when I am talking about individuals and churches misinterpreting Scripture I am not talking of those who mistakenly interpret Scripture but rather those who blatantly, or deliberately, falsify the truth of Scripture. Those who adhere to the word of God accept it as Sola Scriptura, meaning that Scripture alone is authoritative for the faith and practice of the Christian. The Bible is complete, authoritative, and true. If that is you, then you are following God’s word.

Jesus again testifies that the things written in Revelation (which by default would include the entire Biblical cannon of Scripture) are true and will occur. He again reaffirms that He is coming soon.

As followers of God, we can wholeheartedly say “Amen” and shout out, “Come, Lord Jesus”. John concludes his writing with the words, “The Grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen.”

We hope you have enjoyed reading Revelation during our 11 months study together. As we have already said, we are working on the entire blog series on the book of Revelation to be available as a book very soon. Once we have completed editing and format we will then look to having the book published.

In the meantime, as the author of the blogs, I have to offer my grateful thanks to all of you who have read the blogs diligently and for your continuing encouragement. There is a great deal of time spent in study, research and prayer for the content and sources we use. We would ideally love to be able to place all of the wonderful pictures that Debbie has included with each blog in the book but, sadly, the cost of doing so would be too great. We are looking at the idea of having, perhaps, one main picture for each chapter but that, again, will need further discussion as to the practicality of doing.

Doing a daily blog takes a large piece of our daily activities. That is not a complaint, simply a fact. That, in itself, means that other things suffer as a result of time restraints. Such things are the writing activities of several books I am working on as well as a bachelor’s course I am currently pursuing for Ministry that I hope will be followed up with a Master’s degree in Theology. I’m proud to say my wife is also on the same journey and there are specific reasons that we are pursuing that course, which will be revealed in due time.

As a result of all of the above, we are moving the blog to a weekly format which we will publish each Monday. Our next series, I’m delighted to inform you, will be on the book of Daniel. This will commence in the fall. The specific timing will be posted in due course.

We are also exploring the idea of doing a preaching series via you tube video, which is also likely to be a weekly format.

There is much to do in the service of our Lord and Master and anything and everything we do we do for the Honor and Glory of God.
