12 GOD HAS WONDERFUL PLANS – AND YOU’RE INVITED! The Book Of Revelation Gives Us A Scope Of This Plan, Starting At Our Day And Going Through A “Bird’s Eye View” All The Way Into The Endless Realm Of Our Future…

13 Revelation 1:3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

14 STOP RIGHT THERE! Did You Notice That? Revelation is the only book of the Bible that offers a special, unique blessing just for those who will:

15 Read it, Hear It, Keeping The Things Written In It.

16 God Is Going Out Of His Way To Encourage Us To Take Time For The Book Of Revelation! This Is Why This Study Is Going To Be Such A Wonderful Blessing To Us All! God Is Going Out Of His Way To Encourage Us To Take Time For The Book Of Revelation! This Is Why This Study Is Going To Be Such A Wonderful Blessing To Us All!

17 Revelation 1:4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from Him WHICH IS, and WHICH WAS, and WHICH IS TO COME; and from the seven Spirits which are before His throne; A distinct title for the “Eternal One”, who exists outside of time and space John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from Him WHICH IS, and WHICH WAS, and WHICH IS TO COME; and from the seven Spirits which are before His throne; A distinct title for the “Eternal One”, who exists outside of time and space

18 Revelation 1:5-6 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto Him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and hath made us kings and priests unto God and His Father; to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto Him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and hath made us kings and priests unto God and His Father; to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

19 Revelation 1:7-8 Behold, He cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, WHICH IS, and WHICH WAS, and WHICH IS TO COME, the Almighty. Behold, He cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, WHICH IS, and WHICH WAS, and WHICH IS TO COME, the Almighty.

21 John 1:1,3,14 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was WITH GOD, and the Word WAS GOD. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was WITH GOD, and the Word WAS GOD. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,

23 Revelation 1:9 I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the Word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. Do You Think John Would Trade Anything For This Experience Now?

24 Patmos Was “The Alcatraz” Of John’s Day – Prison Island A 10 miles long and 6 miles wide island in the Aegean Sea, 36 miles off the southwest coast of modern Turkey

25 Revelation 1:10-12 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 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;

26 Revelation 1:10-12 …unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. And I turned to see the voice that spake with me.

27 Revelation 1:13 And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; and in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps [chest] with a golden girdle. [belt]

28 Revelation 1:14-15 His head and His hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and His eyes were as a flame of fire; and His feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and His voice as the sound of many waters.

29 Revelation 1:16-17 And He had in His right hand seven stars: and out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword and His countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. And He had in His right hand seven stars: and out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword and His countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead.

30 Revelation 1:16-17 And He laid His right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: I am He that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive forevermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. And He laid His right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: I am He that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive forevermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

31 Why All These Mysterious And Cryptic Symbols?

32

33 God Did This Is On Purpose! Revelation 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto Him, to shew unto His servants things which must shortly come to pass; and He sent AND SIGNIFIED* IT by His angel unto His servant John: * RENDERED INTO SIGNS

34 Proverbs 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter. By concealing certain things, God seeks to stimulate in us a resolve to analysis, research, and investigate for those who are truly wanting to understand. (It’s no accident that among the most popular TV shows for the last several years are shows that delve into forensics, mysteries and investigation.) God Did This Is On Purpose!

35 It’s In Our Human Nature To Want To Know What We Don’t Know…God Knows That Proverbs 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.

36 It’s like finding precious stones or gold. You must be willing to dig a little to come up with those priced and valuable objects. Rocks lay freely scattered on the surface, but gold and diamonds must be mined for. Why All These Mysterious And Cryptic Symbols?

37 The Scriptures Aren’t Confusing – We Are Whenever I find myself running into something confusing or something that just doesn’t make sense, I need to stop and examine if the problem is with ME! I’ve done this with the Word of God, and I’ve done this with common day activities. It’s best to first question ourselves because we normally are the source of the problem – whether we like to admit it or not.

38 The Scriptures Aren’t Confusing – We Are Often I’ve been guilty of getting mad or being impatient with my computer because it would not do what I wanted it to do. No matter what, it would NOT respond right. But I’ve learned that ALMOST EVERY TIME this happens, it is because I’M DOING SOMETHING WRONG or OVERLOOKING SOMETHING that is causing it to act “wrong”.

39

40 That Little “Insert” Button

41 The Scriptures Aren’t Confusing – We Are The same is true with the Scriptures. If something doesn’t seem right or something doesn’t add up, don’t continue to force it, but step back and allow the truth take care of itself. I’ve learned down through the years to admit it if I don’t understand something, and leave it in the hands of the Lord. Some things we will find as we dig deeper! But there are some important rules to handling the Word

42 Safe Rules Of Interpretation *Always take the Bible LITERALLY. *And when the language of a passage cannot possibly be literal, (Jesus said, “I am the door”), then get the literal truth being conveyed by the figurative language. *Always let the Bible interpret itself. (Much harm and confusion has come as the result of people “spiritualizing” the Bible or coming up with “private interpretations” of a passage.)

43 Safe Rules Of Interpretation *Approach the subject of Bible prophecy as HISTORY BEING WRITTEN BEFORE IT HAPPENS. *Give the same meaning to words of prophecy as you do to the words of history. *Do not seek for some “hidden meanings”. *Do not think prophecy must be fulfilled before it can be understood. *And always allow the Scripture to explain itself.

44 “…and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword…” (1:16)

45 What Is Coming Out Of His Mouth Is The Word Of God Hebrews 4:12 For THE WORD OF GOD is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any TWO-EDGED SWORD, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

46 What Is Coming Out Of His Mouth Is The Word Of God Ephesians 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, WHICH IS THE WORD OF GOD:

47 Seven Stars Seven Candlesticks

48 Revelation 1:20 The MYSTERY of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The SEVEN STARS ARE THE ANGELS* OF THE SEVEN CHURCHES: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches. * Greek – aggelos = ”a messenger, envoy, one who is sent, a messenger from God”

49 Seven Stars Seven Candlesticks * Greek – aggelos = ”a messenger, envoy, one who is sent, a messenger from God” Revelation 22:8-9 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of THE *ANGEL which shewed me these things.

50 Seven Stars Seven Candlesticks * Greek – aggelos = ”a messenger, envoy, one who is sent, a messenger from God” Revelation 22:8-9 (Concerning John’s reaction) Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.

51 Seven Stars Seven Candlesticks * Greek – aggelos = ”a messenger, envoy, one who is sent, a messenger from God” Mark 1:2 (Concerning John the Baptist) As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my *messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.

52 Seven Stars Seven Candlesticks * Greek – aggelos = ”a messenger, envoy, one who is sent, a messenger from God” Luke 7:24 (Concerning John’s envoy) And when the *messengers of John were departed, He began to speak unto the people concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness for to see? A reed shaken with the wind?

53 Seven Stars Seven Candlesticks * Greek – aggelos = ”a messenger, envoy, one who is sent, a messenger from God” Luke 9:52 (Concerning Jesus' disciples) And sent *messengers before His face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for Him.

54 Later in Chapter 2 – 3, we find each letter is addressed to “the angel of the church of…”. They are the “sent ones” or “the messengers” for that body of believers. Pastor are called all kinds of bad things, it’s neat to know the Lord calls them “angels”!

55

56 Isn’t There Only One Holy Spirit? Revelation 1:4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from Him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the SEVEN SPIRITS which are before His throne; So, Let’s Allow Scripture Explain Scripture…

57 Isn’t There Only One Holy Spirit? Ephesians 2:18 For through Him we both have access by ONE SPIRIT unto the Father. Ephesians 4:4-6 There is one body, and ONE SPIRIT, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God…

58 Isn’t There Only One Holy Spirit? Isaiah 11:1-2 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: and the SPIRIT OF THE LORD shall rest upon Him, the SPIRIT OF WISDOM and UNDERSTANDING, the SPIRIT OF COUNSEL and MIGHT, the SPIRIT OF KNOWLEDGE and of the FEAR OF THE LORD;

59 Isn’t There Only One Holy Spirit? Isaiah 11:1-2 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: and the SPIRIT OF THE LORD shall rest upon Him, the SPIRIT OF WISDOM and UNDERSTANDING, the SPIRIT OF COUNSEL and MIGHT, the SPIRIT OF KNOWLEDGE and of the FEAR OF THE LORD;

60 Isn’t There Only One Holy Spirit? The Seven-Fold Holy Spirit of God… Spirit of the Lord = He affirms His deity Spirit of Wisdom = He helps us apply our learning Spirit of Understanding = He illuminates the Word Spirit of Counsel = He comforts us in His counsel Spirit of Might = He endues us with His power Spirit of Knowledge = He leads us in all truth Spirit of Fear of the Lord = He brings reverence

61 Number Of Perfection/Completion

62 Have You Noticed All The 7’s We are going to see a lot of SEVENS in our study of the book of Revelation. Seven is the Biblical number of completion and perfection. On the seventh day God rested [ceased] from His creation work since is was completed and perfect (Genesis 2:2). There are more sevens than the average person notices in this amazing book…

63 A Multitude Of Sevens 7 Churches1:4,11,20;2;3 7 Promises2;3 7 Lamps4;5 7 Seals5,6 7 Horns5;6 7 Eyes5;6 7 Trumpets8,9 7 Angels8:2,6;15:1,6,7,8; 16:1;17:1;21:9

66 Revelation: A Book Of 7 Blessings

67 Revelation 1:3 Revelation 14:13 Revelation 16:15 Revelation 19:9 Revelation 20:6 Revelation 22:7 Revelation 22:14 Revelation: A Book Of 7 Blessings

68 Jesus Gave Us The Outline Of The Book Of Revelation In Revelation 1:19

69 Revelation 1:18-19 I am He that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive forevermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter; I am He that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive forevermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;

70 The Things Which Thou Hast Seen (Chapter 1) The Things Which Are (Chapter 2 - 3) The Things Which Shall Be Hereafter (Chapter ) The Things Which Thou Hast Seen (Chapter 1) The Things Which Are (Chapter 2 - 3) The Things Which Shall Be Hereafter (Chapter )

71

72 The Great Mystery Of The Church Age Ephesians 3:1-6 For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles, If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward: how that by revelation He made known unto me THE MYSTERY; (as I wrote afore in few words, whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)

73 Ephesians 3:1-6 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto His holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; That the Gentiles should be fellow-heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of His promise in Christ by the gospel:

74 Jesus Dictates A Letter To Seven Churches In Modern Day Turkey “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith [repeatedly is saying] unto the CHURCHES…” (Revelation 2:7,11,17,29; 3:6,13,22)

75 We are living in the age or Dispensation of Grace, sometimes called the CHURCH AGE. You and I are experiencing the time of God’s plan being extended to the whole world! This age takes up “the things which are”.

76 Chapters 2 & 3 Are Really The Last Message Of Christ To The Church! As far as importance, these two chapters in Revelation are the Christians most important, because they are the last mention of the Church and have at least four different applications…

77 A Local Application These where seven actual churches in Asia Minor (present day Turkey). A Church Wide Application Every church has issues that the Lord addresses in these seven letters.

78 A Personal Application Each letter addresses issues in the life of every single believer down through the church age. A Prophetic Application The chronological order of the letters seem to cover certain time periods throughout church history.

79 Jesus Dictates Prophetic Letters, Addressing Seven Different Churches Throughout The History Of The Church
