"THE AGE OF THE CHURCH AT PHILADELPHIA" BY PASTOR MIKE TAYLOR FROM "RAPTURE READY"!!
The Age of the Church at Philadelphia - By Pastor Mike Taylor - http://pastormiketaylor.blogspot.com/2017/02/the-age-of-church-at-philadelphia.html
1 "The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:
2Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
3Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand." (Revelation 1:1-3)
The book of Revelation is to some a mystery that seems to confuse a lot of people. So most people don't even bother to read it's pages, because they think it's too confusing and the images horrify them with so much death and destruction described. So they think that the average man/woman can't understand its message, due to all it's symbols and metaphors, but is that true? First the book of Revelation is written in Koine Greek and by definition means apokalypsis, or "unveiling" or "revelation". ... The Book of Revelation is the only apocalyptic document in the New Testament canon . The book is definitely not something you can't understand, or it would not be a book that "unveils or reveals" what is coming in our future.
Here our Lord comes to John in His glorified state as God and the description is way more than what John saw when Jesus was taken up out of His sight upon His ascension.
