The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants — things which must shortly take place.
Revelation: the King is coming soon
Why does our Church need this now?
One purpose of the book of Revelation is to assure Christians (in difficulties and facing persecution) of the ultimate victory. It is therefore a book to encourage the saints: needed in these COVID days.
However, false ideas and false teachings abound about this book. Another preaching aim therefore is to correct false teaching and draw out the main lessons as they apply to our lives.
Thinking correctly about the return of our Lord is an inducement to confident faith, practical holiness and evangelism.
