Revelation For Bible-Believing Christians: Chapter 1

Okay and turn your Bible King James Bible to the book of Revelation chapter 1 we’re going to start an expository study what can we as Christians get from the book of Revelation Bible believing Christians that’s important to understand not referring to Greek and Hebrew original autographs that don’t exist all right as the only infallible Word of God no we believe that this King James Bible is God’s perfect word so let’s start out here Revelation chapter 1 verse 1 the revelation of Jesus Christ which God gave unto him to show unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John does Jesus Christ need to be revealed to us as Christians no why is he showing his servants there he’s got to even him to show unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass see we’re looking at the thing as Christians and we can go wow we can see you know all these different banks and stuff are starting to go to biometric types of finger scanning iris scanning people are implanting microchips you know biohacking they call it and it’s it’s interesting you know I want to make a comment here in it and I was going to do a special video just on this but I’ll I’ll put it into this one it used to be years ago when they’d come out with this whole thing of scannable microchips and whatever the mainstream media would make comments about well some people say it could it’s like the book of Revelation the mark of the beast thing and well some would say yes and something and they would mention it now they don’t even mention the mark of the beast anymore see they’re acclimating people are getting people ready say it’s very interesting but um Jesus Christ is going to be revealed to who what’s the purpose for the time of Jacob’s trouble Jesus is going to be revealed to the Jews we’re going to see that in this first chapter of Revelation pretty interesting but it’s just neat to be able to say as Christians we are God’s servants and he is showing us things which must shortly come to pass we aren’t looking and saying well yeah the books book of Revelation is just so it’s futuristic it’s way out there I can’t even understand it as we get closer to that time we can really see a lot of these things coming to pass interesting verse to who bare record of the word of God and of the testimony of Jesus and of all things that he saw remember it’s talking to there in verse one sentence signified it by his angel unto his servant John who bare record of the word of God and of the testimony of Jesus Christ and of all things that he saw now it’s very interesting because those three things are going to happen in your life as a Christian you say what three things number one you will bare record of the word of God absolutely we’re going to see some scriptures on this you will have the testimony of Jesus Christ and you will testify there of all things that he saw you will be an eyewitness of many things of miraculous type of things that are going to happen in your life you’re gonna say that couldn’t been anything but the Lord doing that you know you study through the whole Bible hold King James Bible the word coincidence does not show up even one time conspiracy does many times very interesting there is no such thing as coincidence in your life Romans says we know that all things work together for good to them that love God to them who are the called according to his purpose everything is part of God’s plan in your life as a Christian there are no coincidences so we can say hey we’ve seen some things in our life since we’ve gotten saved let’s look here John chapter 14 23 verse 23 not chapter 1423 mind you chapter 14 23 what about bearing record of the Word of God we read there in Revelation chapter 1 verse 2 says here jesus answered and said unto him if a man love me he will keep my words and my father will love him and we will come unto him and make our abode with him in other words this book you’ll see things that go on in here happening in your own life either saved Christian you will bare record of the word of God you’ll say somebody comes along I say that books so outdated it’s just ridiculous you say let me tell you something the books not outdated and it’s not ridiculous I’ve seen application of this book in my own life absolutely what about having the testimony of Jesus Christ turn back to John 3 John chapter 3 verse 18 John chapter 3 verse 18 says he that believeth on him is not condemned but he that believeth not is condemned already because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God and this is the condemnation that light is come into the world and men love darkness rather than light because their deeds or evil for every one that doeth evil hateth the light neither cometh to the light lest his deeds should be reproved but he that doeth truth cometh to the light that his deeds may be met made manifest that they are wrought in God very interesting because as a Christian the testimony of Jesus Christ was as Jesus was walking around on the earth there were people that were in darkness that hated him because he was light and he was shining his light of truth upon their deeds of evil their dark deeds of evil you’re gonna have that same thing Christian you haven’t experienced it yet if you’re newly saved you will experience at some point in time that there are people that don’t like to be around you you’re a goody two-shoes or you’re judging or something like this narrow man and narrow minded bigoted you know whatever they’ll come up with these little terms for you why because you’re bringing conviction into their life see they’re working hard to kill their conscience to say there’s nothing wrong with what I’m doing and you come along and you say you know what what you’re doing there’s wrong it’s sin they don’t like that sin word not at all you will have the testimony of Jesus Christ you will be like a light in this very dark world again another tie-in to revelation 1 verse 2 and what about the thing of seeing many things same book John chapter 21 John chapter 21 verse 24 and 25 it says this is the disciple which testifieth of these things and wrote these things and we know that his testimony is true interesting there and there are also many other things which Jesus did that which if they should be written every one I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written amen can you say that as a Christian I mean the old song the old hymn goes count your blessings see what God hath done name you name them one by one count your blessings see what God hath done dare stop to think of how many times Lord has blessed you and protected you and answered your prayers a lot I mean if you wrote down everything that Lord’s done in your life every time that you’ve witnessed him doing something guiding you directing you protecting you whatever you know even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written amen yeah you will be as it says here in Revelation 1 verse 2 and of all the things that he saw you will see God working in your life give you a good example just the other day I was out side and things and and I had taken my keys out of my pocket I was doing some some building and things and working outside and I have a little Leatherman tool that has a pliers on it and I take it out there to pull a staple out of a board and I just took my keys my keychain with my Leatherman tool and I stuck it in the pocket of my tool belt and I forgot about it and I put my tool belt inside the shed and I was gonna shut the door and lock it and it was just like I had that lock in the thing I was about to press it and it was like in my head it went I heard this like what about your keys and I was like I put my hand out of my pocket my keys aren’t oh it’s right there in the tool belt I mean I was that close to locking my keys inside of the building and the only way into the building is with the keys that are in the building you know it would have been a big problem all right and I was very far away from an extra set of keys so it would have been a major problem but what was that it’s Lord telling me about that just little simple things like that little times it just like the Lord’s blessed us and and and I’ve seen him working in my life and you’ll see that as a Christian so right there in verse 2 you’ll see those three things in your life when you truly get saved you will have you will bare record of the word of God you’ll say hey the book is true I’ve seen the application of it in my own life you’ll have the testimony of Jesus Christ you will be a light in a dark world and you will have many times when you’ve seen you’re an eyewitness to God working supernaturally in your life you’ll see it you know we get so you know to the point where we don’t even give God glory a lot of times for little things that he’s done you know you go to the store and something’s on saying you know wow I didn’t know that that was gonna be on sale give God glory for that he said well as the people that who do you think could influence those people you walk out in the parking lot and there’s some coins or there’s a $20 bill laying there and you pick it up there’s no one around it is looking for Wow thank you Lord you know all kinds of things all kinds of things you get sick you get a bad headache you know and you pray about it a little while later the headaches gone give God go you know glory give him thanks for that those are all things that you’ve seen where you’ve seen the Lord working in your life pretty neat let’s look at verse 3 Revelation chapter 1 verse 3 here says 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 okay two things number one you will get a spiritual blessing from reading the book of Revelation that’s again another reason why I decided to do this study there are great blessings that come from just reading the book of Revelation it’s a it’s a terrible time that’s coming that’s described in this book but it ends very very well for us that’s Christians I mean we’re going to be leaving before these events take place but it’s horrible things that are going to happen on this earth but boy when we come back it’s going to be something else but this thing of keep those things which are written therein for the times at hand how do you keep the things that are written therein well first of all my knots given up on the book by not being ashamed of God’s Word his written word that’s one way to keep it the other way is to live it all right so you don’t quit and you live accordingly all right you are kind of a law-abiding Christian so to speak in terms of you read the Bible and you go with what the Bible says there it’s an it’s your instruction book for living in this lurk in this life or earth can I combine my two words there but let’s go to verse 4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia grace be unto you and peace from him which is and which was and which is to come and from the seven spirits which are before his throne all right now here’s part of the debate thing that comes in who are these seven churches now there’s a lot of back and forth on this thing we’re going to be looking at the seven churches from from chapters two and three it goes into the seven churches and talks a little bit about them and there’s definitely some great instruction and righteousness there but some people will say well the seven churches are seven local churches and I say local because of that term has been perverted now to mean buildings but seven churches in local areas and you know there groups of people well that’s true but people also say well it represents seven periods in church history or seven types of churches or seven types of Christians or there’s even some that say seven churches in the in the time of Jacob’s trouble because Church just means it called out assembly so you know the body of Christ leaves but there will still be you know there will be people to get saved after the body Christ leaves and if they are meaning together technically they are a church so it can go a lot of different ways but we’re gonna see again I’m not going to be getting into this thing from a real deep doctrinal standpoint and things because there’s good arguments for a lot of the different things and a lot of it I think it’s just a mystery that’s not going to be revealed to us as Christians today but we’re gonna look at it for instruction in righteousness but that’s the first point there were verse four secondly it’s kind of interesting because you have three witches they’re spelled differently than a WI TCH look at it which is and which was and which is to come you can only say that about an eternal being he is present tense Jesus Christ is alive he is in control of things which was though she came in the past he was there from the very beginning and which is to come he’s coming back okay can you say that about Buddha is he’s still alive right now which is know which was yeah he was alive at one point in time which is to come no he’s not coming back how about Mohammed nope any other leader founder of any other you know system of religious belief out there can any of them can you say that about anybody else nope only Jesus pretty interesting but what about the thing of the seven spirits which are before his throne let’s look about that keep your hand there in Revelation chapter one and we’ll go back to the book of Isaiah in your Old Testament Isaiah chapter 11 Isaiah 11 verses 1 2 says here and there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse and a branch shall grow out of his roots and the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him the spirit of wisdom and understanding the spirit of counsel and might the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord he said was the first one there the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him okay sorry I missed that one seven spirits in verse two is that the seven spirits that are there before his throne in Revelation chapter one well I think it is it’s kind of interesting a lot of people you might not have known about the thing of the seven spirits of God and you say explain that to me I can’t I don’t know I just believe it you know say well you should be smart enough to figure it out if I figured out God with my own intellect he wouldn’t be any more intelligent than me and he certainly wouldn’t be worth worshiping then at that point in time so there’s a lot about the you know the Godhead a lot about this book like I said I’m just I don’t know I just read it and believe it let’s go to verse 5 now Revelation chapter 1 verse 5 and from Jesus Christ who is the faithful witness and the first begotten of the Dead and the Prince of the kings of the earth unto him that loved us and washed us from our sins in his own blood that’s a very important one you haven’t seen this before I’ll show it to you real quickly here go back to Acts chapter 20 Acts chapter 20 verse 28 says here take heed therefore unto yourselves and to all the flock over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers to feed the Church of God which he hath purchased with his own blood the blood that Jesus shed on the cross was God’s blood it wasn’t man’s blood you know and John MacArthur years and years ago I’ve said about this before but he came out and he oh you know the blood that Jesus shed was really not that important I mean he could have just been strangled it what I meant the same thing it was his death showing his ignorance of Scripture and you know he’s kind of backpedal a little bit and people said well he kind of took that back and he didn’t really mean that in mm-hm just came out and showed himself to be a heretic okay if you deny the blood of Jesus Christ you got some problems and part of the reason he did that if you want to go to Colossians chapter one part of the reason that John MacArthur denied but a lot of Jesus Christ is because he’s connected to a lot of these new versions that come from the Vatican yeah Colossians 1 4 verse 14 in whom we have redemption through his blood even the forgiveness of sins now if you have an NIV or a lot of these other new versions they take out through his blood kind of weird why they would take out the blood yeah interesting can you go back to Revelation we’ll go to chapter 7 I’m going to show you the very important significance of this thing of says there in verse 5 washed us from our sins in his own blood Jesus washed us okay Revelation chapter 7 verse 13 and 14 says and one of the elders answered saying unto me what are these which are arrayed in white robes and whence came they and I said unto him Sir thou knowest and he said to me these are they which came out of Great Tribulation now watch this and if washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb wait a second washed us from our sins in his own blood unto him that loved us and washed us from our sins in his own blood have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb so in Revelation chapter one you have people that are washed by Jesus Christ Revelation chapter 7 they are washing themselves what’s going on there well there’s an element of works that enters in to the time of Jacob’s trouble for salvation you can’t take the mark see what is there like that today as a Christians there isn’t anything when you come to Jesus Christ for salvation you get washed in the blood and he’ll wash your sins away and by the way it’s up to him to decide who gets saved and who’s lost I’m not talking about Calvinistic predestination or something like that that’s no one I’m talking about what I’m saying is there are a lot of people that come to Jesus Christ and say I’m here to be say die and they pray some prayer and whatever else but God looks on the heart God looks and says if there’s some kind of a thing there where they’re not truly you know done with their self-righteousness they’re just you know saying this prayer it’s just they’re caught up in the emotion of the moment and whatever else if that’s the case he’s not gonna save him right he’s not gonna wash him in his own blood they’re not broken enough and I’ve seen that thing people with their pride and they just pray a prayer and then they go on living like the devil and they’ve all a Christian you know and stuff it’s bad but let’s and they by the way this is how you know that the people the Saints in Revelation chapter 7 are not Christians like we are today they’re not they’re washing their own robes we’re washed in the blood and the other thing is there’s a difference between Gentiles vs.

9 down through there and verse 4 down through 8 those are Jews but yet today there’s no difference between Jew and Gentile according to the book of Galatians so many proofs that Christians are not there in that time of Jacob’s trouble but let’s go back to Revelation chapter 1 we’re gonna go to verse 6 revelation 1 verse 6 says and hath made us kings and priests unto God and his father to him be glory and Dominion for ever and ever amen alright we are going to reign with Jesus Christ again chapter 1 is clearly being written to Christians today absolutely and it’s interesting too because I forgot to make a mention of this but up there in verse what was at verse 2 there about who bare record of the word of God and of the testimony of Jesus Christ and of all things that he saw very interesting because who was you know the verses that we read where were they from the book of John who was John the disciple whom Jesus loved it’s thought that was kind of interesting but what about this thing of reigning with Jesus Christ turn back to 2nd Timothy chapter 2 second Timothy chapter 2 verse 11 through 13 says here it is a faithful saying for if we be dead with him we shall also live with him if we suffer we shall also reign with him if we deny him he also will deny us if we believe not yet he abideth faithful he cannot deny himself so the denial there and verse 12 is if you don’t suffer as a Christian you’re not gonna reign with him in the Millennial Kingdom right he’s not denying you in the sense of you’re not Savior you’re done or something like that how do you know that because in verse 13 he cannot deny himself all right he’s faithful to us even when we’re not faithful to him in other words kind of a convicting thing there isn’t it but go back to Revelation chapter 1 look at verse 7 behold he cometh with clouds and every eye shall see him and they also which pierced him and all Kindred’s of the earth shall wail because of him even so amen now what is being referred to here this is kind of an interesting thing Zechariah chapter 12 I’m going to keep your hand there in Revelation chapter one we can go back to Zechariah chapter 12 zechariah chapter 12 verse 9 through 14 is where we’re going to read back to revelation 1 they also which pierced him okay let’s read about that zechariah chapter 12 verse 9 and it shall come to pass in that day that i will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem and I will pour upon the house of David and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem the spirit of grace and of supplications look at this and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced time of Jacob’s trouble you see do you understand this is for a time where Jesus Christ is going to be revealed to the nation of Israel such a neat time I mean it’s just it’s so amazing and they’re going to look upon Jesus who they the nation of Israel have pierced their look and say we rejected our Messiah I mean do you realize that what is the theme of the whole Bible the theme of the whole Bible is God’s dealing with man through Jesus Christ that’s what the theme of the whole Bible is it’s very interesting back to Zechariah chapter 12 here and they shall mourn for him as one mourns for his only son and shall be in bitterness for him as one that being is in bitterness for his firstborn and that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem as the morning of hey dad Rimland in the valley of Megiddo and land shall mourn every family apart the family of the house of David apart and their wives apart the family of the house of Nathan apart and their wives apart the family of the house of Levi apart and their wives apart the family of shamea apart and their wives apart all the families that remain every family apart and their wives apart so what’s going on here in Zechariah chapter 12 is what we read about here in verse 7 of Revelation chapter 1 again seeing that John writing to Christians here but yet he says hey the time is going to come he’s explaining the second coming and he’s saying that time is for the Jews essentially is what he’s trying to get through there he’s referring back to what’s going on in Zechariah chapter 12 I mean do Christians need to be here on the earth and say oh we’re the ones that pierced him we rejected him as our Messiah he didn’t come to be the Messiah to the Gentiles he’s our Savior sure but he’s not our Messiah the Messiah is a uniquely Jewish thing but let’s continue verse 8 I am Alpha and Omega the beginning and the ending saith the LORD which is and which was and which is to come the Almighty there we see the three witches again you know but notice the unique statement of an eternal being I am Alpha and Omega the beginning and the ending hmm in other words Jesus Christ is eternity he represents eternity that’s why people say why just can’t believe that Jesus would burn people forever in hell but Jesus is eternity he is forever so if you’ve offended a holy righteous god you’re gonna pay as long as he’s alive you’re gonna pay for your sins and if you have accepted him and received him as your Savior as your Lord you’re gonna be with him as long as he’s alive forever at the beginning and the end pretty neat I’m pretty scary too if you’re lost if you’re lost you better get saved most important decision that you can make let me just show you this – by the way this thing of Jesus being eternity keep your hand in Revelation chapter one again go to Colossians Colossians chapter 1 verse 16 and 17 says here for by him we’re all things created that are in heaven and that are in earth visible and invisible whether they be Thrones or dominions or principalities or powers all things were created by him and for him and he is before all things and by him all things consist that’s an amazing verse you want to talk about a very profound verse in your New Testament by Jesus Christ all things consist everything is tied to Jesus Christ it’s really kind of ironic because you get all these people down here on the earth all these atheists and whoever else Satanists and things and they hate Jesus and they’ll mock Jesus and everything else and they’ll say a bunch of nasty stuff it’s like they got a lifeline and plugging themselves into Jesus Christ and he’s keeping him life or he’s excuse me he’s keeping him alive he’s giving them life it’s kind of weird and it I mean it’s like you’re on life-support me and you’re like you know stupid machine over here was a dumb thing doing you it’s keeping you alive right if you’re lost Jesus Christ is your life support if you get to the point where you make him mad enough he might just pull the plug on your life might want to get saved yeah verse nine Revelation chapter 1 verse 9 I John who also am your brother and companion in tribulation and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ was in the isle that is called Patmos look at this this is interesting for the Word of God and for the testimony of Jesus Christ hmm so John was in you know basically exiled to an island why because he was a hate criminal no because he actually robbed the bank or something like this and got caught no he was there because of what the Word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ and by the way you say well the Bible’s not that important we have the the testimony and things you wouldn’t know Jesus if it wasn’t for this book okay this book tells you about Jesus so don’t come along and tell me that the Bible version issue is not important or what Bob will you use or the Bible itself you don’t even really need it and think you’re kidding yourself all right that’s very important but let’s go to Matthew chapter 18 excuse me 13 verse 18 Matthew chapter 13 say this thing here Matthew 13 verse 18 through 21 hear ye therefore the parable of the sower when any one heareth the word of the kingdom and understandeth it not then cometh the wicked one and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart this is he which received seed by the wayside their word the book of market ye the wicked one is actually named as Satan comes and takes away the word that’s entered in their heart verse 20 but he that received the seed into stony places the same is he that heareth the word and anon with joy receiveth it yet hath he there not root in himself but dureth for a while for when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word by and by he is offended interesting one of the marks of false convert is they will have very poor attitude towards this book they won’t really respect the Word of God and there’ll be a Christian until all of a sudden it gets very unpopular to stand for the Bible and all of a sudden well well I once was a Christian now I’m an atheist or something yeah sure right you were never a Christian these people that hate the word of God and things but you can relate if you’re truly saved you can understand some of what john was going through and you think to yourself somebody comes along and says you know if you don’t shut your mouth about this bible you might end up in prison and you kind of think to yourself well whatever you want to do to me or whatever you want to say to me or whatever else have threatened me whatever I can’t turn against this book just as simple as that this book has changed me this book is is the center of all truth would you be willing to be exiled to an island kind of rough but mark of a true convert is how they feel about this book the Word of God let’s look at verse 10 it says here Revelation chapter 1 verse 10 I was in the spirit on the Lord’s Day and heard behind me a great voice as of a trumpet okay now I’ve talked about this thing before the word Trump in your King James Bible appears two times both are in reference to God’s voice Trump is the sound that a trumpet makes is not a trumpet okay and both times you hear when God speaks to a saved individual over in John chapter 10 Jesus talks about speaking to his sheep and things he calls them by name so when the Lord speaks to his people his you know saved people to Christians you will hear his voice and it’ll sound like a trumpet talking with you it’s a certain melodious musical type of tone I imagine again I say play a recording of all I can’t you know I don’t understand exactly how it’s gonna work out but it’s going to sound like a musical type of a voice like a trumpet and it’s ironic because first Corinthians 15 and first Thessalonians chapter 4 are the only two places where the word Trump appears both places refer to the rapture not the Second Coming and we’re gonna if you turn over to chapter 4 we’re not going to today here in Revelation but John hears a voice that sounds like a trumpet talking with him same thing here in verse 10 of chapter 1 a very interesting thing there verse 11 Revelation chapter 1 verse 11 through 14 will read that saying I am Alpha and Omega the first and the last and what thou seest write in a book and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia unto Ephesus and unto Smyrna and unto Pergamos and unto Thyatira and unto Sardis and unto Philadelphia and unto Laodicea then I turned to see the voice that speak with me and being turned I saw seven golden candlesticks and in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of Man clothed with a garment down to the foot and Girt about the paps with a golden girdle his head and his hairs were white like wool as white as snow and his eyes were as a flame of fire now there is a this new movement out there that Jesus was actually a black man and things and the disciples were all black as well and and they weren’t really shamanic they were him you know ham lights essentially and it’s replacement theology just a different variety of it instead of the white Europeans being the true Jews now it’s black Africans that are the true Jews very very weird stuff but they will use this verse here verse 14 his head and his hairs were white like wool and they say we’ll see wool is kind of a kinky kind of somewhat curly in things like a black person’s hair and they’re they’re the ones saying this I’m not being racist or something else they’re the ones saying this they’re the ones putting this out and they say see so Jesus Christ had black man’s hair and it’s white in color but it’s still it’s like the hair of a black man proving that he was black it’s like no no it doesn’t work that way look at the text his hairs were white like wool let’s say his hair was kinky and kind of and you know had the texture of wool no it was white it’s describing the caller how do you know that caller caller are you say the word I get people wasn’t good caller my you know weird accent that I have being from southeastern Pennsylvania he’s describing the collar of the hair okay how do you know that keep reading white like wool as white as snow now Jesus didn’t he didn’t have a snow cone on top of his head either or something okay it’s describing the collar it is not subscribing the texture of the hair so when people come and try to say see Jesus was a black man because they’re another proof and here’s another one with OU’s verse 15 you can just scratch him out as being ridiculous verse 15 and his feet like unto fine brass as if they burned in a furnace and his voice as the sound of many waters and he had in his right hand seven stars and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword and his countenance was as the sunshine atha in his strength okay now what is this thing of the sword there a sharp two-edged sword out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword what is that about well Hebrews chapter 4 verse 12 talks about the Word of God is quick and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword very interesting but the real good one you don’t know your Bible that well I’ll show you here Revelation chapter 19 about this thing of the sword coming out of his mouth out of the Lord’s mouth Revelation chapter 19 verses 19 through 21 says here and I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse and against his army and the Beast was taken and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast and them that worshipped His image these both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone and the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse here we go which sword proceeded out of his mouth and all the fowls were filled with their flesh you know what the most powerful weapon in the universe is the double-edged sword of God’s word the sword that comes out of the Lord’s mouth the sword of the Spirit this is the most powerful weapon in the entire universe very interesting and by the way if you say well what’s the deal about this you know this army and things well if you go to Revelation chapter 9 I’ll show you real quickly here Revelation chapter 9 verse 16 speaking of this army that gets wiped out with the sword of the mouth they comes out of the mouth of the Lord Jesus Christ and the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand and I heard the number of them so basically there you have this huge Antichrist army and they’re wiped out by the spoken word of the Lord Jesus Christ baby better be real careful cutting on this book making fun of the King James Bible alright verse 17 Revelation chapter 1 back there says here when I saw him I fell out his feet as dead and he laid his right hand upon me saying unto me fear not I’m the first and the last now just stop there for a minute who wrote the book of Revelation who was it revealed to John what was John doing there in chapter 13 verse 23 John chapter 13 verse 23 let’s turn there quick John chapter 13 verse 23 now there was leaning on Jesus his bosom one of his disciples whom Jesus loved so when Jesus is here on the earth John is kind of leaning you know like this just kind of reclining back with his head kind of here on the Lord and yet when John sees him as the resurrected Christ he’s falling at his feet as though he were dead again you know you see these these pictures and these paintings and stuff artists renditions of Christians that go to see Jesus and it’s like we hug each other you know Jesus is hugging them and warmly and everything no that was the lamb see John when he had his head on the bosom of Jesus Christ that was the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world Jesus was meek mild and lowly but he’s not coming back that way I mean you know you can see that somebody with a lamb and they can kind of cuddle with the lamb and lamb will lick their face nice you know real lightly and they’re very cute and very tender and whatever else but you don’t often see that with a wild lion let me just go over and kind of put my head on the lines bosom you know and just kind of you know mm-hmm that’s why John when he sees Jesus Christ there he falls at his feet is dead the disciple whom Jesus loved you see you need to have a proper respect for Jesus Christ as a Christian you can’t just say well Jesus is my buddy he’s my homeboy or some kind of wicked thing like that we need to remember who we’re dealing with we are dealing with the king of kings and Lord of lords I mean would you just you know some king or something you know I don’t even know it’s a queen yet over there in England but the very highest king in the world or whatever and you just kind of walk in and you got dirt on your shoes and you track it across the carpet and you kind of sit down in his chair and you go hey king what’s going on I hit him in the chest how you doing buddy you don’t act that way to a king okay and what am i saying well I’m saying that as a Christian when you start to get a little bit too familiar to the Lord with the Lord and you start to kind of say I you know just Lord doesn’t care about that stuff you know I can just you know do this and whatever else you’re starting to forget who he is and you’re starting to forget the fact that it’s not gonna be the Lamb that judges us at the judgement seat of Christ it’s gonna be the lion I believe that Jesus Christ has the king you know we’re going to be bowing the knee and taking the knee before our king when we get there to heaven I mean I think it’d be a wonderful thing when we get up there the rapture happens we meet the Lord in the air wouldn’t it be neat if we get there when we first of all we see the Saints and we’re having it and everything else wow we’ve it’s we’re finally here we’ve made it and all sudden we look and we see Jesus Christ and the whole body of Christ just goes and bowels down before our King I’d be wonderful you read about the 24 elders taking their crowns off and throwing them before the throne mm-hmm pretty convicting oh it doesn’t hurt if I just do this or do that because Jesus I know Jesus we’re good buddies is he your king something about verse 18 Revelation chapter 1 verse 18 I am he that liveth and was dead and behold I am Alive for evermore amen and have the keys of hell and of death Jesus controls who goes to hell and he controls when you die and I’ve seen this thing many times when Lord all that wicked people just go and go and go and you only go and finally boom kills them lets them be killed and then they go to hell interesting but I want to make another very important statement here about this verse verse 18 I’m he that liveth and was dead okay get your homes come with a Jehovah’s Witness come to the door hello we’re Christians we want to talk to you about our Watchtower magazine here we have a free copy for you and we’d like you to join our call Church you want you want a very good way to it to answer one of these Jehovah’s Witness is a good question I should say what you do is you say see what verse your verse 8 all right Revelation chapter 1 verse 8 I am Alpha and Omega the beginning and the ending saith the LORD which is and which was and which is to come the Almighty alright ask a Jehovah’s Witness who is that referring to I’m Alpha and Omega the beginning and the ending saith the LORD which is and which was and which is to come the Almighty most of them will say well it’s that’s the Lord there’s it’s God so is that Jehovah God right there yes yes I believe so okay then you go over to verse 18 I’m he that liveth and was dead when did God die they don’t believe he did you know they believed Jesus was just you know Michael the Archangel or something like this and you know he wasn’t really God manifested in the flesh so why is it in same context here one minute he’s saying that he’s the beginning in the end and then he says I’m he which liveth and was dead get him good on that one of course they you know they try to weasel out of it or whatever else but pretty interesting let’s look at the last two verses here verse 19 write the things which thou has seen and the things which are and the things which shall be Hereafter the mystery of the Seven Stars which thou sawest in my right hand in the seven golden candlesticks the step seven stars are the angels of the seven churches and seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches okay now what can we get out of that well a very interesting thing what are the stars in heaven angels according to the Bible pretty interesting you say oh no you know this poor dumb Christian preacher he’s just so dumb you know we’ve in science we’ve proved that stars are gaseous balls of matter that burning well that’s what you’ve seen with your tests your your telescope but have you actually been there to test the surface of those Suns I mean for the people that say that that’s what it is do you really know that for sure I mean have you gone and actually tested what these stars are composed of no they haven’t so you can’t really scientifically prove that I’m wrong and the Bible over and over again compares Stars to angels so just thought that was interesting you know and again a little couple nights ago when outside and I was a really nice starlit night and see this one star and it was really kind of glimmering and shining and I said to my wife I said isn’t that amazing you know that’s star over there that’s an angel and you know our connection to God is just right there you can see it the supernatural realm if you believe the Bible for what it says stars are angels according to this book very interesting so say a lot more I apologize I’m kind of kind of a little bit tired right now hopefully I didn’t say anything you know really weird but uh much studies awareness to the flesh I did this research away from being in town here and and study went very well but I’ll tell you what it’s just putting together sermons is not always easy definitely can be very very challenging at times I just want to encourage you out there as Christians you know to to remember that we have an authority in the Word of God to remember that the Lord’s plans for the future include us and include some really really amazing precious promises for us as Christians and if you’re not saved I pray that you would get saved as soon as you can don’t put it off don’t delay because the day is gonna come when you’re not going to want you know the Christian or the salvation if you go into the time of Jacob’s trouble because salvation and that time means you’re gonna be an enemy of the state and actually not just state I’m talking world government so that is gonna be it for this study I have some more stuff to get done here so please keep us in your prayers I’m not gonna close a little bit of prayer today because I’m just kind of a lot of the stuff is supernatural you know I’m convinced of that there are many times when I’m just I’m going along I’m doing fine I had plenty of sleep you know and I’m you know good food to eat whatever else and I’m just also just hits me and I’m just going the gonna fall asleep the devil’s not happy with us alright if you’re a Bible believing Christian the devil doesn’t like you very much so but anyways please pray for us I’m gonna be like I said in the introduction video not sure how often these revelation expository studies are going to be done I don’t know if it’s going to be weekly or not I don’t I have no idea but we will get to them as we can and I guess that’s going to be it thank you for watching
