Revelation 7 - Persvere


John’s beautiful poetic image comes to life as grim reality in chapter 7. The wind becomes part of the vision–and a very real threat–when John sees four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on…

Revelation 5 - Its all about Jesus

Revelation 5 – It’s all about Jesus

Revelation 5 – The Scroll and the Lamb Revelation chapter 5 continues the vision of chapter 4. The “book” is a scroll with seven messages, each of which has been “sealed” with the authority of God.

Revelation 4 – A Throne in Heaven A vision of God, as on his glorious throne, around which were twenty-four elders and four living creatures.

Never Lose the Truth

To the Church in Pergamum John’s letter to the church in Pergamum is his third in the series of seven. In this third letter he records the words of “The One who has the sharp two-edged sword.” As in Revelation 1:16 this is a reference to Christ.

Love is the message

Love is at the Centre

To the Church of Ephesus Revelation 2: 1-7. Ephesus was a famous church planted by the apostle Paul (Acts 19:1-41), and afterwards grown and led by John, who viewed it as his home. This is the first of the churches that John deals with.  Each has a different message for us today as we shall…
