Thank you for your willingness to discuss anything in scripture in a reasonable and logical way, without contention. I have a question about those who are saved as described in Matt. 25, the Sheep and Goats judgment at the end of the Great Tribulation. The last verse, 46, says about the sheep: “…but the righteous into eternal life”. Since these survived the Tribulation in their normal body form, how is it that they merit eternal life by their works to the brothers of Jesus, the Jews?
I have asked The Lord everyday to come into my heart and forgive me me of all my sins, but I’m a drunk. I cry out and ask for his forgiveness as my guilt has a tight grip on me but can’t stop drinking. I let him down all the time I am so scared that He will leave me like this. Jesus help me please.
Why is Jesus called the Lamb of God?
John 1:29 “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world”
Rev 5:6 ” Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing in the center of the throne.”
And why is He called the Lion of Judah?
Revelation 5: 5 Then one of the elders said to me “Do not weep! See, the LION of the tribe of Judah, the root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals”.
In part 1, The Seven Miracles In John, I showed how John selected these seven miracles specifically for their ability to help us believe that Jesus is who He claimed to be, and that by believing we might have eternal life.
It’s official! We’ve begun a Children’s Church for the tribe we’ve been serving in India. Our Spring Bible School outreach was such a success, the tribe asked us to keep coming every week to minister to the children. After much prayer, we’re moving forward!
No other book of the Bible was so specifically written for our generation. Of its 22 chapters, 19 are about a time that’s still in our future.
And no other book of the Bible promises blessings to those who read it, hear it and take to heart what is written in it.
In short, the Book of Revelation is arguably the most important book you will read in your life time.
People have shied away from this book because of its use of symbolism and its cryptic references. In writing this commentary, I’ve tried to explain these things in common everyday language to make it easier to understand while remaining true to the book’s purpose, which to inform us of things that will soon be taking place.
Here then is my commentary on the Book of Revelation.
