A Great Earthquake

In July 2018, Israel had several small earthquakes that raised an alarm for a possible “big one” and brought to question the preparedness of Israel for this event. 2 articles made an estimate as to the damage and loss that may come from a large earthquake at 7,000 people killed, mirroring Revelation 11:13 of a great earthquake that will kill 7,000 people in Israel.

“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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

It’s fairly short and quick to the point; they aren’t doing […]

The 7 Churches of Revelation: Thyatira

The corrupt church of Thyatira

The Church of Thyatira seems to be a church that’s fairly well doing even to Jesus. However, Jesus does have some things against them, that they allow Jezebel to be in their midst. Who is Jezebel and how are the members of Thyatira suffering from her influence?

The 7 Churches of Revelation: Pergamos

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, so much so that Jesus references “Satan’s seat” as among them and interesting characters: Balaam, Balak, and the Nicolaitanes. What does Jesus mean by all this?

Study of Revelation: The 24 Elders

The book of Revelation is filled with symbolism and is often difficult to decipher. The 24 elders that John sees in heaven are no exception. Who are these elders and do they help offer a picture as to who we are in Christ?

The 7 Churches of Revelation: Ephesus

The church of Ephesus has found partial favor in the eyes of Jesus. They hate what is evil and labor for Christ. However, their one great flaw is that they’ve forgotten their first love. Jesus tells them to repent and to “do the first works”. What first works is Jesus referring to here and how can we learn from the church of Ephesus?
