The End of Time Revelation 1-5; 9-22 The Story – Chapter 31
Revelation 1:1 THE REVELATION FROM JESUS CHRIST, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. (p. 459 in The Story)
Notice the book is called THE REVELATION, not ”Revelations” with an “s” at the end.
The word “revelation” is a translation of the Greek apokalypsis, meaning “an unveiling” or “a disclosure.”
John in Exile on Patmos and the Seven Churches of Revelation

Revelation 2:4–5 (NIV) 4 Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. 5 Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place.

Holy Spirit, bring spiritual awakening and revival. Begin here, in my heart. I repent of being saved and satisfied. Fill me with your Spirit afresh so that I may serve you with my every heartbeat. For Your glory, Jesus, and the glory of Your Kingdom. Amen.
Revelation 3:3 (NIV) 3 Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it fast, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you.
Revelation 19:11–12 (NIV) 11 I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True.

The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. 4 They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. 5 There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever.
Rev 22:14 “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. (p. 469)
