    ===============
    August 31, 2011 -A STUDY OF THE BOOK OF REVELATION- (2)
    ===============
    Continuing our series of lessons....through the book of Revelation....
    ===============
    LETS GO TO....... Revelation 1:2 & 3
    ===============
    -THE HIDDEN BLESSING....FOR ME IN THIS SERIES-
    (It is a “humbling experience”:)
    ------------------------
    Because I am way over my head:
    When it comes to the book of Revelation:
    --------------------------------------------------
    But I am going to follow the Lord’s instructions!
    ===============
    V.2A “Who bare record of the word of God,”
    -WHAT WE ARE.......ACTUALLY STUDYING-
    (God’s record:)
    ------------------------
    This same thing is true of the entire Bible:
    --------------------------------------------------
    The Bible is....a perfect record:
    Of the things....God wanted us to know:
    ------------------------
    It includes...quotations of men & angels & demons:
    But are faithfully recorded as...“The word of God”!
    ===============
    V.2B “and of the testimony of Jesus Christ,”
    -THE RED-LETTER......PARTS OF THIS BOOK-
    (The places where Jesus actually spoke:)
    ------------------------
    Being set apart as Special:
    --------------------------------------------------
    -PUTTING TO REST.....AN OLD ARGUMENT-
    Some have said that..red lettering is misleading:
    Because all the Bible...is God’s Word:
    ------------------------
    But this....would seem to disagree!
    ===============
    V.2C “and of all things that he saw.”
    -THE VISIONARY......PARTS OF THIS BOOK-
    (The visions...that John was shown:)
    That he faithfully described to us:
    --------------------------------------------------
    Using the words....that God wanted him to use:
    To describe them.
    ===============
    V.3A “Blessed”
    -THE BLESSING....A CHRISTIAN RECEIVES FROM THIS BOOK-
    (A blessing we need...in this wicked world:)
    “Blessed” Lit.(Happy)
    --------------------------------------------------
    The happiness we will receive:
    When we see....how the LORD brings things together!
    ===============
    V.3B “[is] he that readeth,”
    -THE BLESSING......OF STUDYING IT-
    (When we take the time study it:)
    The Lord blesses our labor:
    ------------------------
    By allowing us.....to understand it!
    --------------------------------------------------
    -THE LIE.....THAT SOME PEOPLE WILL TELL YOU-
    Don’t allow anyone....to convince you:
    That the book of Revelation....can not be understood:
    ------------------------
    It’s God’s Word...and it is meant to be understood:
    To one degree or another!
    ===============
    V.3C “and they that hear the words of this prophecy,”
    -THE BLESSING......OF BEING TAUGHT FROM IT-
    (Being taught about future events:)
    ------------------------
    Where the LORD is glorified:
    And His people are delivered!
    --------------------------------------------------
    -A CLUE.....AS TO HOW THIS IS TO BE TAUGHT-
    “the words of this prophecy”
    Not the words or opinions of men.....who deny or twist it:
    To their own destruction!
    ------------------------
    This is why God gave His Word to us:
    So that we can learn the truth directly from Him!
    --------------------------------------------------
    -GOD’S INSTRUCTIONS.....NOT TO LOOK TO MEN FOR ANSWERS-
    (Because every born again believer has the Holy Spirit:)
    See 1 John 2:27
    “But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you,
    and ye need not that any man teach you:
    but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things,
    and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you,
    ye shall abide in him.”

    ------------------------
    The Holy Spirit will teach us of “all things”!
    ===============
    V.3D “and keep those things which are written therein:”
    -THE BLESSINGS.......OF FOLLOWING IT’S INSTRUCTIONS-
    (Being doers of the Word:)
    ------------------------
    Remember God’s promise...about the Bible...
    Qt. 2Timothy 3:16 “All scripture..”
    --------------------------------------------------
    -AN EXAMPLE....OF IT’S KIND OF INSTRUCTIONS-
    Revelation 2:5A
    “Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent”

    ------------------------
    This will being a Christian.....great happiness!
    ===============
    V.3E “for the time [is] at hand.”
    -ANOTHER REASON THIS BOOK....WILL BE SUCH A BLESSING-
    (Because of the times we are living in:)
    Qt. 2Timothy 3:13 “But evil men and..”
    --------------------------------------------------
    We come to this book...and are reminded;
    That the Lord is still on the throne:
    And that He is in complete control!
    ===============
