Revelation 1-3 Sermon Series

The Book of Revelation is not a mystical book full of secret writings with hidden meanings for a select few. It was meant to be an encouragement to the Church! It alerted them to the reality of ongoing persecution and yet reminded the faithful of God’s sovereignty. This is a book that we have made frightening, though that wasn’t the intent; the sheer number of worship material that comes from Revelation should point us toward its joyful purpose. Revelation reminds us of the faith of Jesus! Reading Revelation reminds us of God’s greatness! In turn we are reminded that he deserves and demands to be worshiped. The presence, power and authority of the risen Christ causes us all to be cut to the core of our humanity. We become aware of how often, how frequently and with such greatness we miss the mark (definition of sin is an archer missing the mark) and repent. In the presence of the full glory of Christ, our poor aim is highlighted.

So it is in the shadow of Christ’s full glory we pick up the next 2 chapters of Revelation, the letters to the 7 angels of the 7 churches.

As we dive into these letters we will soon see that they were intended to be read aloud in the 7 churches and well beyond. These 7 letters are to all of the churches. These letters were, are, and will continue to be applicable to all churches.
