 Re: Revelation Bible Study


There are a number of good studies out there on this book and there are many differing interpretations of what is revealed; but you will do well to consider the following as you read this book. First and foremost this book is a revelation of who Jesus Christ is. The words are symbolic and mysterious at times yet the meaning is clear, Jesus Christ is the center and the focus of all that God does in the world. He is “first and last.” There is nothing that Jesus does not comprehend and encompass. He is the horizon of all mankind, stretched from eternity to eternity. He is God. His kingdom is everlasting.

You should also consider the clear message of an overcoming church in this book. The vitality of the church is not in religious activity but in a steadfast devotion to Christ through many trials. Reread chapters 2 and 3 and notice how many times it speaks of “he that overcometh.”Notice that the inheritance of the kingdom belongs to the overcomers.

Notice also that Jesus shows us several different groups of overcomers in heavenly glory, it's as if these saints who are in heaven are cheering on those still in the battle on earth. Read of them in the following passages;

Revelation 5
Revelation 7:9-17
Revelation 14:1-5
Revelation 15:2-4
Revelation 21:6-7 , 10-14, 21-27

So, in short, try reading the book with those topics as the focus, I have done this and been greatly encouraged by the revelation of God's glory and His ultimate purpose regarding Jesus Christ in His activities in this world with an eye also on the amazing future of the church in ages to come.

In Christ,

The best I have found is the Bible study by Zac Poonen. Apart from that link provided you can also refer to the book Final Triumph.

The above link is free ebook for Kindle and all major ereaders as well as PDF version to read in phone. I and my Wife had read it together multiple times are are very blessed by this book. It is also a Bible study on the book of Revelation.

 Re: Revelation Bible Study

Like one poster said there are various interpretations of how the book is to be interpreted. This variation can and does discourage many from studying the book. So where does this find the average Believer who yearns to understand it?

There are folks who will spiritualize portions they do not like for whatever reason, among those that make little sense. To understand prophecy I suggest you study the ones dealing with Jesus' coming, comparing with their fulfilment. Some have duel meanings - especially David's writings in the Psalms.

In any case, I suggest you read it through many times and forget about trying to place the events as recorded into a time and place for their fulfilment. Instead look to see what does this teach one about the nature and personality of God and his son Jesus. Once you get a good grip of these concepts then work to understand the vision John saw.

I love the book, brings one so much comfort - especially during these troublesome times. Every time I read it I gain new insights - it is chuck full of events, details that are easily missed with casual reading and even intense study. The blessings of studying it are overwhelmingly rich.

If you want to do a systematic study I suggest you use the Inductive Method. I was taught this at Bible School and find it helpful.

God bless and enjoy this journey!
