Should I study the Book of Revelation? Is it relevant to my life?

First, God’s inerrant Word is reliable. No matter how difficult it is to comprehend the visions presented in Revelation, we must not forget that it is part of God’s Word. As such, it includes an inherent blessing from simply reading, hearing, and keeping those things we do understand. “Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near” (Revelation 1:3, NKJV).

Second, in the Book of Revelation, God reveals His wonderful plan of salvation, in our Lord Jesus Christ. As humans, we choose to trust in many things and place confidence in various people. Revelation tells us that the Lord God is worthy to be the object of our complete, undivided faith and worship. Here is the center of our worship, the focus of our obedience, and the source of our blessing, both now and in the future.

Third, God’s sovereign plan replaces fear with hope. People all over the world live under superstition, fear of the unknown, apprehension about the future, and an overwhelming feeling that the whole world is out of control. Wars, famines, diseases, natural disasters – all of these tragedies appear to be evidence that chaos reigns. However, the Revelation shows that God is working out His sovereign plan, that He will destroy evil and that in the end, God wins! Knowledge of this fundamental truth replaces fear with hope and confidence.

There are more reasons to study in depth the Book of Revelation. So, if you wish to be a member of “Revelation Fellowship”, please send me a message. With the grace of God, we will set the time and the place of studying the Book of Revelation. Please spread the word to your friends.

Revelation Fellowship

In the view of many, the “Book of Revelation” is complicated and confusing. Even the so-called scholars find little agreement among themselves over the Patmos visions. Sadly, the church of God divides into sects and denominations over interpretation of apocalyptic imagery.

The good news is that the “Book of Revelation” is the “Revelation of Jesus Christ”. St. John promises all who read and keep what is written in the Patmos posts will be blessed: “Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near” (Revelation 1:3, NKJV). I think it is time to think and study seriously the Book of Revelation before it is too late.

When it comes to the Book of Revelation, some literalize it, and others spiritualize it. However, I would like to personalize it and have it for living. By studying the Book of Revelation, you discover the Mystery of God in our Lord Jesus Christ, a rich discovery that you need for life here and in eternity.
