It was John, the beloved disciple, who loved his Lord with a deep passion and who had walked with Jesus from the start of His three year ministry that was given this unique glimpse of the risen, ascended and glorified Son of Man.

Revelation 1:14

Revelation 1:14

The most glorious yet awe-inspiring description of Jesus Christ is given in this first chapter of the Revelation to John - for our learning.

Revelation 2:7

Revelation 2:7

On at least 3 occasions in the gospels, we hear the Lord Jesus giving a warning.. on the importance of hearing His message: He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

When God says something, we should pay read more...

Revelation 2:11

Revelation 2:11

Bitter suffering and significant poverty had to be endured by the persecuted believers, in the little church at Smyrna, but unlike His letters to the other six churches in the book of Revelation, Christ gave no rebuke to this little Christian community.

Smyrna means 'myrrh', which refers to the sweet-smelling perfume, which was used to embalm the dead.. and like their suffering Saviour, these believers in Smyrna were going through read more...

Revelation 2:26

Revelation 2:26

There were things that were good in the church at Thyatira, and there were men who were faithful to the Lord.. but there was much that was unbiblical, and many of their members entered into immorality and idolatry - having a form of godliness, and yet, denying the Lord Who bought them.

When a denomination or body of believers chooses to compromise the truth of the glorious gospel of grace.. we identify a church, that corrupts its read more...

Revelation 3:2

Revelation 3:2

There is urgency in these words from the apostle John as he continues his revelation of Jesus Christ, in his instructions to the seven churches. Watchfulness, urgency and eager attentiveness is his watchword, as these important truths are being relayed from Jesus, to the churches.

The shocking truth is that faithfulness, godliness and love has almost been eliminated from the lives of these believers and Jesus is warning read more...

Revelation 3:5

Revelation 3:5

It is the Church in Sardis to whom the Lord is writing in this passage. The people in this fellowship gave the appearance of being alive, vibrant and effective, to those in the world, and yet the Lord Jesus denounced them as dead, and complained that He had not found their deeds to be complete, in the sight of God, for they had defiled their garments, and walked in an unworthy manner.

They were obviously regenerate individuals, read more...

Revelation 3:11

Revelation 3:12

Revelation 3:12

In sending His seven letters to the churches, early in the book of Revelation, the Lord Jesus gives great insight into the spiritual temperature of the Christian church... as the day for His return to earth draws ever nearer.

Indeed, we are encouraged to watch for Christ's any day return for His Church, for we do not know the day nor the read more...

Revelation 3:15

Revelation 3:15

The letter to the 'Church of the Laodiceans', is perhaps the most solemn and thought-provoking, of all of Christ's, post-resurrection communications, to Church-age believers.

No matter what the temperature of our own spiritual walk, we would all do well to consider some of the serious accusations the Lord Jesus uttered to these lukewarm Christians. I know your deeds. I know that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish that you read more...

Revelation 3:19

Revelation 3:19

Christ’s advice to the church at Laodicea was that their whole value system needed to be changed - their values, their attitudes and their focus. They needed to look away from the things they highly esteemed in this world and set their hearts on the spiritual – to cherish that which is of eternal worth – to pursuing the treasures of heaven rather than the trinkets of earth - to fix the eyes of their heart upon Jesus, their Saviour and Lord.

Revelation 3:20

Revelation 3:20

Many use this verse as an evangelism verse for the unsaved but in reality, like all the seven letters in the book of Revelation, this is a warning to the Church of Christ – saved believers who are part of His body and bride.

Revelation 3:21

Revelation 3:21

The last of the seven churches, mentioned in Revelation, is the church of the Laodiceans, who were neither hot nor cold, but were identified as sickeningly lukewarm. The Lord would have preferred one extreme or the other.. but disinterest, self-sufficiency and ignorant complacency, best categorises this apathetic, apostate congregation.

Indeed, we find Christ, the head of the Church, standing outside the door and knocking - read more...

Revelation 3:22

Revelation 3:22

Not only were Christ's seven letters to the churches in Revelation written to a specific congregation of believers.. but everyone has remained relevant for generations of Christians.. and remains equally relevant today.

Revelation 5:9

Revelation 5:9

What an astonishing sight met the apostle's eyes, after his supernatural rapture into heaven.. as he saw a scroll, sealed with seven seals, being held in the hand of the Ancient of Days.

John understood that this sealed document was the one and only way for mankind to be redeemed. read more...

Revelation 5:10

Revelation 5:10

Christ's seven letters to the churches, contain valuable information, for all who are born from above.

Throughout the Church dispensation, God is reconciling the world to Himself – thorough the Church. However, during the tribulation period, He will once again reach a lost world, through the nation of Israel.

Revelation 12:9

Revelation 12:9

Satan is the enemy of man's soul, who prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. He is that hissing serpent of old, who was responsible for the fall of a man, and often appears as an angel of light - but he is the evil author of deceit and deception - the father of lies and a murderer from the beginning.

By twisting the truth of God's word, he blinds the eyes of men and women, to the truth of the glorious read more...

Revelation 12:11

Revelation 13:8

Revelation 13:8

The gospel of grace is so simple that a little child can understand that God sent His dearly beloved Son, to die in our place - to be the propitiation for our sins and to take upon Himself the punishment that we alone deserve. Yet the gospel of grace is so unfathomable that it staggers the minds of men and angels, that God should send His only begotten Son to die for the sin of a world at enmity with Himself - so that all who believe in His finished work at read more...

Revelation 17:14

Revelation 17:14

Revelation 19:8

Revelation 19:8

The Church, which is Christ's body, is the bride.. and Christ, Who is the Lamb of God is our holy, heavenly Bridegroom. Indeed, the excitement and happiness that surrounds an earthly wedding, is a dim shadow of the wonderful joy and glorious thrill that will take place at the marriage the Lamb.

Revelation 20:6

Revelation 20:6

The resurrection of the body is a blessed biblical truth, that is often overlooked or misunderstood. Man is a tripartite being, made up of spirit, soul and body.

However, throughout our entire Christian life, our soul is being made new, through a process of practical sanctification.. as day by day our read more...

Weeping, we are told by the Lord, shall endure for a night - and the welling tear-drops that have blurred our vision and the floods of tears that have dampened our pillows will one day be wiped away by God Himself, Who enters into every searing pain and each aching heart, and not one secret sigh that crosses the portals of our mind, nor one stabbing pain that cuts deep into our hurting hearts is missed by our gracious Lord of love - for He is our great God read more...

Revelation 22:16

Revelation 22:16

The whole crux of God's plan of redemption, is that man sinned.. and the wages of sin is death, which speaks of man's spiritual separation from God, for all eternity. There is now, no possible way for man to reach out and eat of the Tree of Life, which is in the paradise of God.
