Chapter One

The Introduction To The Book Of Revelation

The Apostle John was a disciple of Jesus Christ, so he walked and talked with Jesus face to face. Which makes him a eye witness to the risen lord, the Apostle John was also a leader of the early church of Ephesus. He was captured for the preaching of the gospel, by the emperor Domitian who was a fierce persecutor of Christians. He got enjoyment, in seeing the suffering of Christians, because the Roman Emperors were worshiped as God’s by everyone but the Christians. The Christians were hated because they would not worship, these men as God’s. So they were often sentenced to death, this was the case with the Apostle John. Who was sentence to be boiled alive, what a horrible death. However, he still would not give up his relationship with Christ, so they dropped him in a boiling cauldron of oil. However, there was another problem, the lord gave him a promise that he wouldn’t die into he saw the kingdom. So he would not burn, this so scared the entire stadium, that everyone in the stadium got saved, how about that Satan. So he was exiled to die, on the island of Patmos, around 95 A.D when the book of revelation was written. This disproves preterist who say that the book of revelation was written around 60 A.D. This could not be true, because who the roman emperor was who banished John. This is were most Scholars get the date 95 A.D. Preterism is the kind of false doctrine, that Jesus warned John about when he warned anyone who added or took away from this book. That there names would be taken out of the book of life (Revelation 22:18). Patmos is in Asia Minor, and is a very small island, the book of revelation was written to seven churches, that we will talk about in the next few chapters. Growing up I would hear that the book of revelation, is not for the church but for unbelievers, however the bible declares this to be false. These seven churches were to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamos, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to Lodicea. In these letters to these seven churches from Christ, we see encouragement but we also see warnings. We see faithful churches, and we see churches that are lukewarm. These seven churches are a picture of the end time church of the 21 century. Only two churches of the seven were considered truly faithful. Most churches in America today, are full of lukewarm Christians who are being more effected by the world, than them having a effect on the world for Christ. American Christianity is weak, and is the harlot church of (Revelation 17). The world has penetrated every aspect of the American church, we are not having any effect on our world, because we have brought the world into the church. Jesus knew that this message to the seven churches, would not only be for those seven churches of Asia Minor, but would be a picture of the final end time church before the beginning of the tribulation. I hope that you are blessed by the message God, gave to these seven churches that are a picture of the church today, that you and me are apart of.
