In both our Bible study and during the
sermon on Sunday mornings, I have been lifting the many messages in the book of
Revelation. I’m doing this because frankly I’ve avoided Revelation for most of
my professional life.
There are many reasons for this. The
language in Revelation is ‘other‑worldly’ and often difficult to understand
(apocalyptic language = revelation language). The structure of the book is
built on prophecy—a not easily understood framework for bringing about the
meaning of the Christ event. And on it goes.
However, understanding the message is
within our grasp if we give enough time and work on the text. That’s why in our
Bible study we have given a lot of time and effort. Sermons are a kind of
distillation of the Bible study work we are doing.
This is another reason I want to
encourage you to come to Bible study on Saturday mornings at 11:00 a.m. It’s
easy, convenient and we don’t go over one hour for a presentation.
Think about it, please!
See you on Sunday morning!
