In our Wednesday services, we are concluding our study of the last book in the Bible, which is called “The Revelation of Jesus Christ.” What is there to reveal and why is the revelation necessary?
The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, record Jesus as God in His humanity. They reveal His dual nature: God and Man, deity and humanity.
In Revelation, however, God shows John His sovereignty as Redeemer and Restorer of His creation. He reveals the glory purchased by His sufferings.
Chapters 1-3 reveal the Glorified Christ and His Lordship over His church. In Revelation 4-5 He alone is worthy to take the title deed of redemption from the hand of God. Subsequent chapters show His victories over all His enemies and His righteous judgements in heaven and on earth. He is defends the righteous and destroys all sin and unrighteousness.
As King of King and Lord of Lords, in the battle called Armageddon, He defeats the political Beast and his False Prophet and their armies and binds Satan with an unbreakable chain. He establishes a kingdom of peace and prosperity on the earth for a thousand years. Satan is released for a short season and deceives many, then forms an army to fight against God. In this final war God defeats Satan and his armies, then Satan is cast into the lake of fire forever. And then He is revealed as the Righteous Judge at the final judgement. Finally, in Revelation 21-22 He returns to His role as Creator, He makes a New Earth, New Heaven and a New Celestial City the eternal Home of the Redeemed!
