Purity

John saw the Lord in grandeur and majesty.

In Revelation 1 we read: His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire; (‭Revelation‬ ‭1‬:‭14‬ NKJV)

Purity is greatly lacking in this life. Since the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, everything has been corrupted. Only in heaven is purity still seen.

Jesus appeared in majesty and purity. White hair and face, fiery eyes. He is absolutely pure even after becoming sin for us. We will see Him and be like Him.

Dressed For Service

When John heard the voice like a trumpet he turned and saw: and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band. (‭Revelation ‭1‬:‭13‬ NKJV)

The High Priestly garment reveals the majesty of the wearer and His place in ministry to the people. Here we see Jesus majestically attired and in Hid majestic glory stand in ministry to the church.

What a vision to see our great High Priest at work!

In the Church

In Heaven or Earth Where Do You Find Jesus?

In Revelation 1 we read: Then I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands, (‭Revelation‬ ‭1‬:‭12‬ NKJV)

The voice spoke from the midst of the church to the church. That is His way. He is the light in the midst of the flame still speaking to His church. Many stand outside of the church claiming to speak to it but Jesus always ministers from the inside. Any voice that will bring the church to right will always be from within. Are we listening?

The Seven Churches

The Seven Churches

John walked with Jesus as a young man and preached the gospel into his old age.

In Revelation 1:11 we read: “What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia: to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamos, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.” (Revelation 1:11b NKJV)

These churches were a part if John’s ministry and each one has significance in the Church age. The Churches both represent the historical church with its struggles and the struggles if the church today. Some are dead. Some are steeped with sin and some are barely hanging on. These words to the church instruct and comfort us even today.

What Do You See?

John was praying and The Lord spoke to him.

In Revelation 1:11 we read: “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last,” and, “What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia: to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamos, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.” (Revelation 1:11 NKJV)

The author of life sent word to the church. The Alpha and Omega who knows the start and the finish showed John the condition of the church and the outcome if each one failed to return or repent or press on. Before the end comes each is given opportunity to repent, just as God has given each of us the same.

The First and Last

In the beginning God said; “Let there be light.” Adam and Eve walked with that voice in the cool of the day. Sin interrupted that fellowship with God and their intimate communion.

In Revelation 1:10 we read: I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet,(Revelation 1:10 NKJV

John was in the Spirit and He heard that same voice that walked with Adam and Eve. The one who is the beginning now speaks at the end and in the Spirit John could hear that voice. Fellowship restored.

The Trumpet Sound

Armies have long used the trumpet to sound the battle call but trumpets have gone silent on favor of electronic communication.

In Revelation 1:10 we read: I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet,(Revelation 1:10 NKJV

John heard a voice, as of a trumpet. It was attention getting, it caused him to look in the direction of the sound. The voice was commanding just like when Jesus said: ” Lazarus come forth.” One day soon that voice will trumpet again and call all who are His to be with Him. Be listening for your call.

The Lord’s Day

Did the early church worship on Saturday or Sunday?

In Revelation 1:10 we read: I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet, (Revelation 1:10 NKJV)

John was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, the first day of the week. The day of resurrection, Jesus rose from the dead on the Lord’s day. Most early Christians met for worship and communion on this day every week. This do in remembrance of me Jesus said and this is a wonderful day to remember the Lord’s rising.

In The Spirit

Do you remember those three dimensional pictures that were all the rage a few years ago? You would stare at the page and when your eyes were aligned the images jumped off the page.

In Revelation 1:10 we read: I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet,(Revelation 1:10 NKJV)

John was in the Spirit seeing beyond his moment in time into eternity. He was seeing what was and what would be. This communion in the Spirit is a part of a healthy prayer life. We may not be shown eternity but we will see and hear and be refreshed in The Lord.

Tribulation Buddies

When you are struggling with life, circumstances, memories; it is easy to believe that you are alone. No one else could possibly understand what you are going through. But there are others who have the same struggles and do understand.

In Revelation 1:9 we read: I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

John wasn’t detached from the tribulations of other believers, he was their companion. He wrote these words in exile because of his faith. He, a fellow sufferer encourage the rest in the struggle with him.

We may suffer in this life but we are not alone. Christ has suffered for us, and all of sin He paid for in His suffering. We have Christ and we have each other as companions in tribulation.
