Study of Revelation: The 4 Beasts

The 4 "Beasts” When John finishes writing the letters to the 7 churches, he’s immediately taken up to heaven, “After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I … Continue reading Study of Revelation: The 4 Beasts

Study of Revelation: The 4 Horsemen

A look into the affects of the 4 seals as well as the 4 horseman that appear from them.

“One like the Son of Man”

Throughout the letters to the 7 churches, we see each letter beginning with a description of some of Jesus’ physical characteristics and divine qualities. First in Revelation 1:13 we get a picture of what he’s wearing, “And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment … Continue reading “One like the Son of Man”

The 7 Churches of Revelation: Laodecia

The final church of this study is the Church of Laodicea - the Lukewarm church. Although I don't go into details with the other churches as to how they relate to us now, I believe Laodecia is a great representation of the western church "system" today. I myself was born in a 3rd world country … Continue reading The 7 Churches of Revelation: Laodecia

The 7 Churches of Revelation: Philadelphia

The sixth church in our study is the Church of Philadelphia - the faithful church. The Church of Philadelphia is like the Church of Smyrna in the sense that Jesus doesn’t find fault with them and they’re holding on to God’s word even in the midst of trials and those that seek to do them … Continue reading The 7 Churches of Revelation: Philadelphia

The 7 churches of Revelation: Sardis

The fifth church we'll be looking at is the Church of Sardis - the dead church. As we begin reading about the Church of Sardis, we immediately see that Christ is displeased with them and doesn’t see anything for them to be commended for. It’s fairly short and quick to the point; they aren’t doing … Continue reading The 7 churches of Revelation: Sardis

The 7 Churches of Revelation: Thyatira

The fourth church in this study is the Church of Thyatira - the corrupt church. The Church of Thyatira seems to be a church that’s fairly well doing even to Jesus. He regards them in such a way that although they may seem as “the last” they will actually be “the first”, “I know thy … Continue reading The 7 Churches of Revelation: Thyatira

The 7 Churches of Revelation: Pergamos

The 3rd church in this study is the Church of Pergamos - the compromising church. Pergamos is an interesting church; although they follow Jesus and hold fast to his name, they also allow others to commit a myriad of sins in their midst without rebuke. The Church of Pergamos like the Church of Symrna, seems … Continue reading The 7 Churches of Revelation: Pergamos

The 7 Churches of Revelation: Smyrna

The second church I'll be looking into is the Church of Smyrna - the Persecuted church. This was a fairly short analysis for me but interesting to look into nonetheless. The passage concerning the Church of Smyrna is fairly quick but still holds a wealth of information. They are a church going through "tribulation" but … Continue reading The 7 Churches of Revelation: Smyrna

Study of Revelation: The 24 Elders

During my study of the book of Revelation, I decided to dig deeper into the identity of the 24 elders that are first introduced to John in Revelation 4:4. I will be presenting my thoughts on who I believe the elders represent based on scripture mainly in the book of Revelation. Timing of events Before … Continue reading Study of Revelation: The 24 Elders

The 7 Churches of Revelation: Ephesus

For me, everything in the Bible is interesting; I love digging deeper and getting to the bottom of tough questions. My favorite book of the Bible however is the book of Revelation and I wanted to delve into it just for interest's sake. The first part of this study will be about the 7 churches … Continue reading The 7 Churches of Revelation: Ephesus
