Revelation 1

Tim Moore: Welcome back to Christ in Prophecy and our series on the Book of Revelation. We began last week with a conversation with Pastor Robert Morgan. His book, “The Final 50 Events in World History” set the stage for our study of Revelation. Pastor Morgan offered a helpful approach to studying Revelation, he suggested beginning with a chronological approach, but also emphasized accepting Revelation in a straightforward, literal sense.

Nathan Jones: We’ve often encouraged people to approach Bible prophecy in general and Revelation in particular with this principle in mind: If the plain sense makes sense, don’t look for any other sense lest you end up with nonsense. Well, there’s a lot of nonsense floating out there in the web and books touting fanciful interpretations of God’s prophetic Word. And sadly, many people are drawn to these sensational and speculative interpretations of Bible prophecy. Even more distressing, some false teachers like to claim secret knowledge or special insight that allows them to determine the day and time of the Rapture and Jesus’s return. We will never engage in such irresponsible conjecture.

We would appreciate your donation.

Dave Bowen: Really that is why I was drawn to Lamb & Lion Ministries in the first place. We do not chase after the sensational, and we do not engage in wild speculation. Instead, we encourage the straightforward reading of God’s Word and point people to the Author and subject of its prophecies, Jesus Christ. You know the fellow servant John encountered in his visions of heaven affirmed that very point. The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

About the Author

Lamb and Lion Ministries
Lamb & Lion Ministries was founded in 1980 as a non-denominational, independent ministry. The Ministry does not seek to convert people to any particular church. Rather, it seeks to lift up Jesus and draw people to Him as Lord and Savior. The Ministry was established for the purpose of proclaiming the soon return of Jesus. We do not believe it is possible to know the date when Jesus will return. But we do believe it is possible to know the season of the Lord’s return, and it is our conviction that we are living in that season.
