Your hosts, Rob and Bob, continue to discuss the Book of Revelation by beginning to walk through the seven churches of Revelation chapters 2 and 3 (spoiler alert: we only make it through three).
In Revelation chapter 1 Jesus is pictured as the very ruler of everything. He is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. This should be great hope to all Christians because if we are focused on the kingdoms of this earth and how they act without remembering the reality of the current functioning Kingdom of Christ we will easily be lead into despair. What the Book of Revelation does is to pull back the holy curtain so we can have a vision of the very throne room of God, the sovereign rule of the resurrected, sacrificial Lamb. In the Book of Revelation, we are told that a time of great persecution is coming, the time is near but that the Lamb that is a Lion has already won and some day He will return. But what should we do till then? Should we hold up in a bunker with a stash of MRE’s? Should we sell everything we have and wait for His return on a hill in a white sheet, (as others have done)?
We will discuss these and other questions today on Theology Simply Profound.
Theology Simply Profound is a podcast of Westminster Presbyterian Church, an Orthodox Presbyterian Church, serving the western suburbs of Chicago, where God powerfully speaks through his means of grace.
