Introduction: Revelation, the concluding book of the Bible and the cornerstone of Bible prophecy, is an apocalyptic book written by the Apostle John that reveals Jesus Christ to us by unveiling for us how the grand finale of the Bible story will not only be summed up by Him, but also in Him.
Revelation 1:1 — The purpose of the book of Revelation is the same as every other book of the Bible. It was not, contrary to popular opinion, written to reveal the future to us, but to reveal Jesus Christ to us!
Revelation 1:1 — The book of Revelation was signified to John; that is, communicated to him in signs and symbols. Therefore, it necessitates a figurative rather than literal interpretation.
Revelation 1:2 — The book of Revelation is John’s eyewitness account to the truth of God’s Word and the testimony of God’s Son, Jesus Christ.
Revelation 1:3 — The book of Revelation is distinguished from all other books of the Bible in that it contains a distinct promise of blessing to all who read, hear, and obey the words of its impending prophecy.
Revelation 1:4 — Seven in Scripture symbolizes completeness. Revelation, a book of sevens written to seven churches, is the completion of the Bible, which is God’s written revelation of Himself to us.
Revelation 1:5 — Christ is “the faithful witness,” who alone can be counted on to always tell the truth and nothing but the truth.
Revelation 1:5 — Christ is “the firstborn from the dead,” who overcame death for us so that He could offer eternal life to us.
Revelation 1:5 — Christ is “the prince of the kings of the earth,” not only their sovereign but also their successor.
Revelation 1:5 — The most remarkable thing about Christ, our Redeemer, who "washed us from our sins in his own blood," is not His reliable witness, His resurrection from the dead, or His rule over the kings of the earth, but that He loves us!
Revelation 1:6 — For His eternal glory and dominion, Christ makes Christians into His prime ministers and ministering priests.
Revelation 1:7 — There is no secret coming of Christ. Unbelievers will not be left behind, but lament when they behold Christ coming in the clouds.
Revelation 1:8 — Jesus Christ is the Almighty, the commencement and consummation of all things, as well as the eternal One, He who has always been and always will be.
Revelation 1:9 — When Christian testimonies are criminalized and the preaching of the Word of God prosecuted, only participants in Christ’s kingdom will patiently endure tribulation for Christ’s sake.
Revelation 1:10 — It's not enough to be in church on Sunday (the Lord's Day), you need to be in the Spirit. It's not enough to hear your church's vicar, you need to hear Christ's voice.
Revelation 1:11 — The book of Revelation was sent to churches. It consists of what John saw. Its subject, from A to Z, is Christ, who is also, from beginning to end, what all things are all about.
Revelation 1:12-13 — Christ, in both His long priestly garment and kingly golden sash, is found in the midst of His churches, which are symbolized by candlesticks, since they serve as the light of the world.
Revelation 1:14 — The white headed Christ is the Ancient of Days, He who always has been and always will be.
Revelation 1:14-15 — The bronze footed Christ stands as the Judge of all the earth, because His piercing eyes of flame enable Him to see into the heart and to know what is in a man.
Revelation 1:15 — The voice of Christ should sound like a Niagara Falls in our hearts, drowning out all other voices, the voices of the flesh, the world, and the devil.
Revelation 1:16 — Christ holds in His hand the heavenly host. His Word is a sharp two-edged sword, resulting in either the salvation of believers or the condemnation of unbelievers, and He is the true “Sonshine" in this fallen world, lighting our way through its darkness.
Revelation 1:17-18 — Christians need not fear death, since the grave can’t hold us, thanks to Christ, who has the keys to let us out the instant we go in.
Revelation 1:17-18 — The Christian need not fear death, since He knows the Man who conquered death and rose from the dead with the keys to the grave swinging on His hip. The instant we go into the grave at the end of our temporal lives, He’ll let us back out into eternal life.
Revelation 1:19 — The book of Revelation tells us what John had “seen,”—the glorified Christ in chapter 1—the things “which are,”—the seven letters to the seven churches in chapters 2-3—and about the things “which shall be hereafter”—the coming end times in chapters 4-22.
Revelation 1:20 — Christ holds the heavenly host in the palm of his hand and is always present in the midst of His churches.
Revelation 3:1 — Isaiah predicted that the promised Messiah—Anointed One—would have the Spirit without measure. Since seven symbolizes completeness, Christ would completely possess the fullness of the Spirit—the seven spirits of God. (Isaiah. 11:2; John 3:34)
Revelation 3:14-22 — The lukewarm, nauseating, and unregenerate church of the last days—an apostate church with Christ on the outside knocking to get in—is symbolized by Revelation’s church of Laodicea. Interestingly, the Greek word “Laodicea” may be translated “the rights of the people.”
Revelation 4:1-2 — There is a throne in Heaven and one who sits upon it.
Revelation 4:1-2 — Heaven’s throne is always occupied.
Revelation 4:1-2 — No matter how out of control things appear to be on this earth, a sovereign God is always seated on Heaven’s throne and all things are always under His sovereign control.
Revelation 5:8 — Human prayers of intercession rise far above the earth to become the fragrant incense of Heaven.
Revelation 12:11 — To overcome the accuser of the brethren, we must believe that our confessed sins, over which he continues to condemn us, have been forever washed away by the blood of the Lamb.
Revelation 12:11 — To overcome the accuser of the brethren, we must testify to all God’s Word says about us in Christ, not to what the devil says to us in his condemnation of us.
Revelation 12:11 — To overcome the accuser of the brethren we must love our Lord more than our life. Those not haunted by the thought of death cannot be harassed by the devil threatening their lives.
Revelation 19:10 — The Bible says, “The spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Jesus.” In other words, the purpose of prophecy is to testify of Jesus so that men might believe in Him.
Revelation 19:11-13 — Jesus Christ, as the Living Word of God, came the first time to carry out what God has spoken; He is coming the second time to complete it.
Revelation 22:17 — The all-inclusive Christian Faith issues its universal invitation to everyone everywhere: “Whosoever will may come.”
Revelation 22:20 — The last prayer of the Bible—"Come Lord Jesus"— should be the believer’s first prayer everyday.
