Discussion for Revelation 1

    Like the Apostle in Revelation falling to his face cannot absorb God and Jesus' countenance we too can taste of his power. His Word lives, penetrating mortal souls, to continue our purification unto death. Death's sting in Hell no longer resides. Celebrate our future resurrection to Heaven where angels sing a cascade of music continually, that no person has heard. Our time is short to tell others.

    Yvonne --I agree the Book of revelations clearly tells of the events that are unfolding as we speak all who has excepted Christ jesus as their personal savior will rise up --they speak of the other people left that he will give a second chance these are jews the chosen ones plus --those who never heard the message ----

    Verse 9: John was older at this time, but he did not let his age stop him from being active in his service to God. His zeal is one that we should imitate.
  • John
    I pray to the Lord God Jesus Christ that I will be ready on the day. I must confess the more I think I know about the Word the less I find I do. Therefore pray for me brothers and sisters, pray to our Lord God Jesus Christ that my eyes may be opened, for I am blind in flesh also, that I might see and know.
  • BSP
    Even thought John was put in prison for his preaching, he viewed this as an opportunity to show his love for Jehovah God.
