Pamphlet 1828 Rev. kc 1-2

If you are not one Christ's servants, forget it, you won't get the pictures.
You'll think that "locusts", when we come to them, are big bugs out to bite you.

 John, that disciple Jesus loved, wrote these words in approximately 96 A.D.
from the isles of Patmos where he was imprisoned for teaching the Word of God.

Rev. 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:
Notice that this is "The Revelation of Jesus Christ", not "The Revelation of John", as many Bibles title this book.

Also note that the purpose of the revelation is to show things unto "His servants".

If you are not one His servants, forget it, you won't get the pictures.

You'll think that "locusts", when we come to them, are big bugs out to bite you.

If you're not one of His, get with the program.

The reason John writes that these things must "shortly come to pass" is because we will find in verse 10 that John isn't writing from the perspective of 96 A.D.

He was taken to the future and wrote from there.

This is another "rule" that you must understand.

[2] Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
John bares witness not only of the Word and the Testimony of Jesus Christ but all that he "Saw".
[3] Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.
You want to be happy (blessed) and free of anxiety about what is happening in the world?

Understand this great book of Revelation and it will set you free,
for you will "see" not only today's events but tomorrow's as well.

And knowing the truth is the key that unlocks the prison doors of the mind,
which have been slammed shut by the traditional teachings of the unlearned.

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
