Revelation: A Verse By Verse Study 1:1b


A Verse by Verse Study
My own personal journey

A journey of studying what’s revealed to me; not a journey to study what isn’t revealed! 

Revelation 1:1b

Chapter 1:Verse 1  The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants—things which must shortly take place. And He sent and signified it by His angel to His servant John..

Although this blog is short, I felt it important to talk about the 2nd half of verse 1 after having addressed the first half yesterday.  It's important to say that the Savior of the world, will in fact save the world. He has already died, shed his blood, provided for redemption and risen from the dead but the day will come when all things will be made new, not only in heaven but on earth as well.  We tend to view Revelation as a "book of the future," and it is but the day will come when the events prophesied will come to pass.  While this is a simple fact, it is something we can look forward to with great expectation!

God the Father, gave Jesus, whose name means Savior of the World and who is the Savior of the World, the revelation of what would shortly come to pass.  These things right now are in the future but there will come a morning when we will no longer say, “He is coming and will make all things new but he has come and has made all things new.”  Yes, these things will come to pass.  There will be that line of separation between what is now and what will be then. Instead of looking forward to what’s coming, we will say, “It came to pass just as he said it would!” Amen and let it be so!
