Summary: Expository Revelation

Revelation 1.1

The Revelation of Jesus Christ

• We saw Jesus Christ in many places before in the bible, yet this is a New Revelation of Jesus.

• Revelation means an unveiling, to show, or to expose. This book is a revealing of what must shortly come to pass.

• Jesus is not trying to scare us to death, he is trying to do just as he did on earth:

o To bring us into a deeper understanding and a deeper relationship with Himself.

o To deliver us from this danger, just like from our Bondage of Sin.

• We must look to this Revelation and accept:

o There is a Savior.

o There is a Judgment.

o There will be a Tribulation.

o There is a Hell.

o There is Heaven.

o There is Eternity.

o There is Still Hope.

• When we read Revelation we must remember that:

o #1 what is says it says, if there is no need to interpret it then DO NOT over analyses it!

o #2 Don’t over spiritualize it either, do not go searching for something that is in your own agenda.

 Your view on Millennialism, A-Millennialism, Pre-Tribulation, Mid-Tribulation, Post-Tribulation.

• There are four interpretations that Revelation has been given:

o Futurist – Revelation is a book of Prophecy that primarily is yet to be fulfilled, especially from Chapter 4 on.

o Historical – Revelation is a book that describes the major events that would take place during the history of the church.

That we can see these events throughout history have already taken place.

o Spiritualization – Revelation should be taken figuratively or metaphorically. That the conflicts with in Revelation are

spiritual not physical in nature. (A-Millennialism and Post-Millennialism). That throughout history we would get better

bringing the Millennial Reign to the earth.

o Preterist – that John was talking about the future destruction of Jerusalem and that Nero fulfilled the part of the Anti-Christ.

• We must keep in mind that this book is The Revelation of Jesus Christ. Nothing more, it is about him.

Which God gave unto him,

• Jesus said no man knows the day or the hour – Matthew 24.36, and Mark 13.22.

• God the Father is the giver of all things.

o There is nothing that is not given unless it is given by God.

• God now gives him the hour and the day, So in His Grace he tells us a more in depth description than his sermon in Matthew 24.

To shew unto his servants the things which must shortly come to pass

• to shew – to expose, to give, to teach

• shortly – a fixed time, come to pass, come go through, come to pass, come with.

• Come to pass – become, to begin, to happen, to arise, to appear, to be finished.

o These things began or have already been put into motion.

And he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John

• Signified – shown or revealed.

• His angel – his messenger

• To his servant – to slave or servant

*Jesus is showing his Grace Again.

• He doesn’t want us to be left in the dark.

• Jesus wants us to have his will known to us (signified it).

• Jesus will give us his message (by his angel)

o But we have to be willing to receive it (his servant)

• Jesus identifies us.

o His – a sense of belonging

 You are His, No one elses.

 Who you serve is who you belong.

o Servant – slave, there is no chance at being set free from him, and you have been bought for a price and it makes you his.

o John – Jesus Knows your Name.

 Jesus cares for you!

 Jesus has your best interest in mind and at heart.

 Jesus wants to show you His Grace.
