The Angel of the Golden Altar – Rev 8:3-5


St. John saw an angel with a golden censer came and stood at the altar; and a great quantity of incense was given to him to mix with the prayers of God’s people, to offer upon the golden altar before the throne. And the perfume of the incense mixed with prayers ascended up to God from the altar where the angel had poured them out.

Then the angel filled the censer with fire from the altar and threw it down upon the earth; and thunder crashed and rumbled, lightning flashed, and there was a terrible earthquake.

Is there a golden altar before the throne? Will we smell incense in heaven? Who is this person serving as the high priest offering incense? What kind of fire has been casted on earth? All is about the great work that Christ still doing for us before the Heavenly Father.

Please mark you agenda not to miss this wonderful chance to hear and know more about what the Lord Jesus is doing for you now in heaven. With God’s grace, the next meeting of Revelation Fellowship will be on Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009 at 8.00 PM. Please come and be nourished by the word of God.

In Christ’s love

The Place of Revelation in the New Testament Canon – Dr. Eugenia Constantinou


The book of Revelation had a bumpy road towards acceptance into the canon of the New Testatment, especially in the East.

But despite undisputed Apostolic authorship, Revelation encountered opposition over the centuries because it had been used by several heretical groups, like the Montanists, to back up their views. Over time, Revelation came to be associated with heretical views or views that caused schisms, and attracted some very famous opponents who sought to discredit the book. In this podcast, Pres. Jeannie discusses the controversy surrounding the book as scripture.
