What a greeting, packed with plenty of punch and pace!! The Apostle John, writing by the Spirit of God brings a glorious triune greeting to the Seven Churches from God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit! Particular emphasis is laid upon the wonderful person of the Son. What titles are given Him, “the faithful witness”, “the first begotten of the dead” and “the prince of the kings of the earth”.
In this teaching, we expound these beautiful titles before turning to the doxology given by John. In every which way, there is no escaping it, this teaching brings to light the very glory and the honour of our blessed Saviour, the Lord of lords and the King of kings!!
In this first teaching part, we set the scene by giving an introduction. In an age where so many have closed this book of Revelation and dismissed it as irrelevant and too hard to understand; it is with the utmost privilege that we embark on this journey, studying, and teaching through this amazing book. For what reason was this Revelation given by God? “…to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass” (Rev. 1:1). For the one willing to read, hear and obey the words of this prophecy, there is the assurance of a promised blessing!! May God help us to remain faithful to His Word!
