NOTES & DEVOTIONALS

The full mystery of God has been kept a secret from the foundation of the world. But the Holy Spirit will reveal aspects of this mystery to all who wish to know the truth in faithful study and obedience of the scriptures.


Revelation is unique in that it is the only book of the Bible that relates to the time after Jesus left the earth to the time He returns to put an end to sin and reward His faithful people with eternal life. May we receive insight as we study this book - His special message for those living through this final period of earth's history.


Studying the word ‘revelation’ and its derivatives as they appear in the Bible, the Scriptures tell us that God gives revelations to warn His people what will happen before Jesus comes. He also gives revelations about iniquity and its consequences. Paul advised the church that a revelation from God will be helpful, constructive and edifying. We need to treat with respect both the revelation and the one through whom it comes, allowing them to share it and paying special attention to their message. ...Read more

We come lastly to the first verse of the Book of Revelation. This book, we are told, is a revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show his servants the events that must soon take place. It's a report of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ.

God reveals secrets to His servants

Deut.29.29 The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.

Whatever my God
reveals are mine and my
children's, that we may
keep all His
commandments.

1Sam.3.6 And the LORD called yet again, Samuel. And Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And he answered, I called not, my son; lie down again.

The LORD had called the child

Lord,
I heard you call me.
Here I am.

~ 1Sam.3.8

1Sam.3.7 Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, neither was the word of the LORD yet revealed unto him.
1Sam.3.8 And the LORD called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And Eli perceived that the LORD had called the child.
1Sam.3.21 And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh: for the LORD revealed himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the LORD.

I will build thee an house

O Lord, I am bold
enough to pray to you because you have revealed so much
to me, your servant.
Do as You have
promised concerning
me and my family.

~ 2Sam.7.25,27

2Sam.7.27 For thou, O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, hast revealed to thy servant, saying, I will build thee an house: therefore hath thy servant found in his heart to pray this prayer unto thee

see it. Yes. Just as God

Dan.2.30 But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but for their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the king, and that thou mightest know the thoughts of thy heart.
Dan.2.47 The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.

Dan.10.14 Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days.

to your gospel!

worship, I am prepared
to sing a hymn,
teach a lesson,
tell a story,
lead a prayer,
or provide an insight.
~ 1Cor.14.26

Gal.1.16 To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:

I thank You that it
pleases you, Lord, to
reveal Your Son in me.
~ Gal.1.15,16

Gal.2.2 And I went up by revelation, and communicated unto them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to them which were of reputation, lest by any means I should run, or had run, in vain.
Gal.3.23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.

Eph.3.5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;

I pray, God of my Lord Jesus Christ, Father of glory, give to me spiritual wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Jesus.
~ Eph.1.17

God shall reveal even this unto you

 

Phil.3.15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.



Lord, reveal to me
the principles of
perfection.

~ Phil.3.15

When Jesus shall be revealed

2Thes.1.7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
2Thes.2.3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

2Thes.2.6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
2Thes.2.8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

To be revealed in the last time

1Pet.1.5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
1Pet.1.12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.
1Pet.1.13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
1Pet.4.13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
1Pet.5.1 The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:

Through my faith,
God is protecting me
by his power until I
receive salvation.

So I think clearly and exercise self-control.
I look forward to this
gracious salvation.

I am very glad
- for trials make me a partner with Christ
in his suffering.

I will have the
wonderful joy of seeing
his glory when it is
revealed to all the world.

~ 1Pet.1.5, 1.13, 4.13
