To stand on the threshold of a new era is so exciting. To preach and teach the Word is the greatest joy. As the weeks and months of waiting passed, we sought the Lord for what portion of the Word to begin in our new ministry among you. And He answered! There are many books in this volume we call the BOOK or biblos, Bible. Each has a purpose chosen by God. All the books point in some way toward Jesus Christ.
But only one book of the sixty-six has as its theme, purpose, and opening word – the singular focus of UNVEILING or REVEALING JESUS CHRIST. Please open with me to the last book of the Bible.
There are two truths that we need to grasp hold of this morning.
First, The book of Revelation has as its theme, purpose, and opening word – the singular focus of UNVEILING or REVEALING JESUS CHRIST.
And secondly, this book is a personal testimony by John about the carpenter from Nazareth, he met as a young man, that changed his life completely when he got up close to Jesus.
Let me read the first verse:
Revelation 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to show unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: (KJV)
There is nothing we need more this morning than to see Jesus UNVEILED, to see Him CLOSE-UP, to see Him more clearly than we ever have before. That is why the book of Revelation was written. You see, the author, the Apostle John got to see Jesus up close. He got to know Him. And, it changed him for the rest of his life.
There is nothing that will help your:
• Personal Life more than to get up close to Jesus Christ.
• Financial Life more than to get up close to Jesus Christ.
• School Life more than to get up close to Jesus Christ.
• Business Career more than to get up close to Jesus Christ.
• Social Life more than to get up close to Jesus Christ.
• Dating Life more than to get up close to Jesus Christ.
• Spiritual Life more than to get up close to Jesus Christ.
But seeing Jesus UNVEILED isn’t just to be memorable. It is meant to grip your mind and life. Jesus never asked for anything less than total devotion. And He got it from those who really came to know Him up close.
