- 1 Thessalonians 5:9
- Acts 26:20
- Revelation 1:19
Revelation 1:19, "Write, therefore, what you have seen, what is now and what will take place later."
- The Revelation is a literal book with pictures and visions which proclaim for us the last days before Jesus’ return and the ushering in of the new heaven and new earth.
- The Revelation begins with letters to the seven churches of Asia Minor, then goes on to reveal the series of devastations poured out upon the earth; the mark of the beast, “666”; the climactic battle of Armageddon; the binding of Satan; the reign of the Lord; the Great White Throne Judgment; and the nature of the eternal city of God. Prophecies concerning Jesus are fulfilled and assure us that He will soon return.
How to walk it out:
Acts 26:20 (NLT) 20I preached first …that all must repent of their sins and turn to God—and prove they have changed by the good things they do.
- Have you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior? If so, you have nothing to fear from God’s judgment of the world as described in the Book of Revelation. The Judge is on our side. 1 Thessalonians 5:9 (KJV) 9For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
- Before the final judgment begins, we must witness to friends and neighbors about God’s offer of eternal life through Jesus. The events in this book are real. We must live our lives like we believe it so that others will notice our joy about our future and want to join us in that new and glorious city. Revelation is a book to be enjoyed, not feared!
Be a Berean: “Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.” Acts 17:11
