This is “Revelation Week” at our church. We are finishing up our summer reading, “Eat This Book,” and we finish with THE END… or is it THE BEGINNING?
It is the revelation of Jesus Christ, not a revelation of “the end of the world as we know it.”
This is a letter of love from the Savior to his Church. The first representation is in chapter 1, where John sees one like the son of man walking among the seven golden lampstands. The seven churches addressed in the next two churches are those lampstands. The lesson? Jesus is the One who walks among his Church. He is with you in your trouble. He knows where you area and he walks with you.
The Church in John’s day was feeling incredible pressure. They wanted to know where Jesus was in their trouble. The answer was he was right there with them. That’s still where he is… walking with us. And in this… we overcome.
