Is it just a revelation? Or, is it the last audible, written message of Christ to His church, of the things that were, and are, and are to come? Is it not, after all, the Revelation of Jesus Christ, that He gave to His servant, John, the beloved Apostle? And how John gave it to the seven churches in Asia, and the church gave it to us? Can you not see the guiding hand of God in this whole process? Seems to me that this is one of the most, if not the most important books of the whole Holy Bible. How then can you ignore it? Who would not want to be blessed by God by reading His very last book of the Holy Bible? And believing the written words, and holding to them, and looking for the “things to come,” shall you not surely be blessed? The Lord Jesus said so. Do you believe that as it is written? Do you want to know your future and the future of the world? Do you really want to know where your soul goes at death? And where you (and I) shall spend eternity, and with whom?
Why is the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ attacked so much by Christians, the very ones who profess to love the Word of God? And even the very ones who say they truly love the Lord, yet cast aspersions upon the book that outlines God’s Plan of the Ages for all humanity; where are they in their belief? And just who is behind these attacks, so vicious, so fanatic, that two believers of the faith, can almost come to blows over the very interpretation and understanding of this most precious book? Alas, Christianity today is very sorely divided over the prophecies yet to be fulfilled!
Like Genesis, Christians have already moved the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ (that’s the correct title!) into the trash can of their minds! Sadly, most believers in the stream of the liberal waters (and it’s getting uglier) want to stop at Jude in their Bible lessons, and then start again with Matthew!
The theme of the Revelation is the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus, the Christ, in great power, and glory, and might, and majesty, that at that time in the near future, every eye of every people and nations will see Him descend from heaven with His armies (the church saints and the holy angels); He shall reign on the earth at Jerusalem as the “King of kings, and Lord of lords” for a thousand years, and then, in eternity, forever! Wow! Was there ever a more glorious theme in all of human history, in all of the Holy Bible, than what is presented in the very first chapter?
Notice how the Book of Jude closes with these words, “To the only wise God our Savior, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen. What a most wonderful lead-in then to the next and last book of the Holy Bible, the one neglected by countless people today, The Revelation of Jesus Christ.
Hear the opening words:
“THE Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto Him, to show unto His servants (us) things which must shortly come to pass; and He sent and signified it by His angel unto His servant John: Who bare record of the word of God, and testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. Blessed is he that reads, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.”
I urge you, with all love, to read this most precious book through at least once a year. You will be blessed. John believed it, I believe it, what about you?
