Study Revelation With Us | Intro

Hi friends! My sister and I are jumping into an in-depth study of Revelations and I decided to share those resources on here.

I often find that churches opt to swerve away from preaching on Revelation. It’s the most confusing of all 66 books of the Bible, and frankly, many are anxious to even attempt to read it. I know many, myself included, have been scared of the contents of Revelations in the past. Perhaps we are scared of what we don’t know. Here’s why we shouldn’t be afraid.

Not only does God calls us into true peace “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 NIV), He calls us into peace through the Book of Revelation! If He calls us away from fear and anxiety, yet also gives us the Book of Revelation, we must be viewing the Book wrongly because God does not contradict Himself. No contents of the Bible should not insight anxiety. He didn’t call John on the island of Patmos to write a script of the scariest apocolyptic horror story we’ll ever read. He gifted John with these visions to comfort us! Yes, this apocalyptic book provides comfort!

Revelation shouldn’t scare you because we already know Jesus wins…He already won. It shouldn’t scare you because the Bride is reunited with her Groom, the Garden of Eden is restored, the curse no longer, Scripture fulfilled. Revelation isn’t scary because it’s the ending of a fantastic story and it’s ending starts the beginning of eternity with our Lord.

It’s also a call to action, as much as it is a call to peace. Revelation is God’s final call, the world’s last chance to run to Him.

If anyone is interested in our study, we are watching a multi-part series by Pastor Gary Hamrick from Cornerstone Chapel Church in Leesburg, VA. In addition to Sunday services, the church also offers Wednesday services, which are more in-depth and theological. You can watch it below if you’d like.

  1. We are not to be worried. We know how it ends. We are to look forward to the second coming. We are to look forward to being caught up by His side. I’ve read Revelations a few times. I’m currently reading a study book on it as well. I look forward to your posts.
