Interestingly enough, we just finished reading the book of Job , with a conclusion that revelation, not information, is what transforms the Lord's believers. John begins by greeting the churches and praising what the Lord has done for believers.

The letter often quotes the earlier book of Daniel. John describes his relationship with other believers and how the vision came to him.

What he saw overwhelmed him until the Living One encouraged him and explained what he was seeing. He writes to the angels of each church. To Ephesus : John describes the Lord who knows the hard work and perseverance of this church, not tolerating wicked men and testing for authentic apostles. But they have forsaken their first love. Remember, repent, and redo what you did when you first believed. Keep on hating the practices of the Nicolaitans. Hear and overcome for a reward. To Smyrna : John describes the Lord who sees afflictions, physical poverty, spiritual wealth, slander by false Jews who follow Satan, and the suffering and persecution tests to come.

Even if you die for faith to overcome, there is a later reward. To Pergamum : John describes the sharp words of the Lord who knows that they live where Satan has his throne and yet remain faithful to the Name. Even when faithful Antipas was executed, they didn't renounce Christ. But some believe Balaam's teaching to entice Jews to sin, and some believe the Nicolaitan teachings.

Repent and overcome for rewards, or the Lord will come to verbally fight Balaamites. To Thyatira : John describes the Lord who knows their love, faith, increasing service, and perseverance. But they tolerate that Jezebel claiming to be a prophetess, misleading with Balaam's condoning sexual immorality and eating idol-sacrificed food.

Weekly Spirit of Prophecy Reading

Anyone learning her "deep secrets" is learning from Satan, and is unfaithful to God. They will suffer intensely unless they repent. Do they think God doesn't know the secrets of their hearts and minds, or see their deeds? If you haven't accepted that teaching and practice of sexual immorality, then don't, and hold on until the Lord returns. If you have, repent and change. Continue doing the Lord's will to the end to overcome for rewards.

July 12 reading Revelation PROMISE: "Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take away your crown. I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and open the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me. While there, he saw the four living creatures. Each of the four living creatures were covered with eyes, in front and in back.

The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle. Then, John saw a scroll. He wept and wept because no one was found who was worthy to open the scroll. Jesus came and took the scroll from the right hand of him who sat on the throne. They all surrounded him, who was given the ability to read the scroll. They said to him, "You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation.

July 13 reading Revelation The Lamb opened the first of seven seals which released after one of the 4 living creatures said "Come" a white horse whose rider, given a crown, rode out to conquer. The Lamb opened the second seal , another animal said "Come!

Bible Commentaries

The Lamb opened the third seal , a creature said "Come! The Lamb opened the fourth seal , the 4th creature said "Come! They were allowed to kill a fourth of the people on earth by sword, famine, plague, and wild beasts. The Lamb opened the fifth seal which allowed John to see the souls of people who had been killed because of the word of God and that they had testified to what they had witnessed of the word of God. How long until judgment and avenging our blood, they shouted. Each given a white robe, they were told to be patient.

There are more of the Lord's servants to be honored with death for the word of God. The Lamb opened the sixth seal which released a great earthquake moving every mountain and island, and turned the sun black, the moon blood red, and the stars fell to earth. Everyone, rich or poor, tried to hide in caves to avoid the wrath of the Lamb.

Four angels stopped the wind before their work began. They waited while another angel had the seal of God placed on the foreheads of , servants of God from the 12 tribes of Israel, with tribes of Levi and Joseph replacing Dan and Ephraim Nu Next John saw a great multitude from every nation, tribe, people, and language before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They praised the Lord as did all the angels, elders, and four animals. The multitude had come out of the great tribulation thanks to the blood of the Lamb. The Lamb opened the seventh seal and after a half hour of silence, seven angels were given trumpets while another angel offered the prayers of all the saints with incense before God, and then smashed fire from the altar in heaven to earth with thunder, noise, lightning, and another earthquake.

As the first four of the seven angels blew their trumpets, the earth was hit with specific kinds of damage in thirds. A flying eagle screeched "Woe, woe, woe" for what was coming from the other three angels. July 14 reading Revelation The fifth angel opened the abyss, and scorpions came out upon the earth. Which one sounds extremely arrogant and narrow? The author simply put forth his understanding of what the text of Revelation says.

Disagree, by all means. But be nice about it. Have nothing to do with them.

Avoid such people. Avoid these people.

Avoid these people! Paul is telling Timothy to have nothing to do with the people he just described. I agree with you that this should be the first way of approaching Revelations. However, I disagree on some of what you say since the entire old testament was a prophetic utterance about the coming Messiah even while it was written to be understood in the present. I am not a theologian or scholar but have studied His Word for over 35 years and have come to the conclusion that only the true God of creation could write an inspired book about His creation that is all encompassing and entails the totality of human existence from beginning to end whether we can cognitively comprehend it or not.

This produces an urgency in every generation to reach souls. God is God precisely because He is in control of the beginning and the end. John is a perfect reference for my point. I realize one can argue that somehow I am taking it out of context but the God I know requires me to study His word where it applied to those it was written too, the generation I am in, and the future he holds in His hands. Revelations is the Great Revealing of time past, present, and future, and it is opened up to Gods people as time moves forward and the coming of Christ gets closer and closer.

No, Eric, I am not a Nicolaitan, and you are beyond presumptuous to write as you do about me and my reading.
