Revelation’s 404 verses contain over 800 quotations, allusions, and connections to the rest of the Bible. There is no new doctrine contained in these 22 chapters, only clarification on how they will come to pass. This is the ONLY book of the Bible Jesus came down to supervise as the conclusion of God’s Revelation. Moses went up to God to get the Pentateuch; Jesus came down to Earth on Patmos to show John what to write. WHY STUDY REVELATION: 1. To GET TO KNOW JESUS better than ever before in your life. 2. To UNDERSTAND GOD’S PLANS for the world around you, and see God shaping the course of history all around you. 3. To LIVE CONFIDENTLY because you know where you came from, why you are here, and where you are headed. PENTATEUCH: serpent in Garden crushed by Virgin born Messiah; Shiloh the Ruler from Judah; Pharaoh’s magicians with demonic powers; God’s plagues He can call out on Earth; a Star from Jacob; and judgments on disobedient Israel. Job: Satan in Cosmic War with power to affect weather, disease, nations, and accuse before God’s Throne. HISTORICAL BOOKS: the power of idols; the scene of Satan and his army before God’s Throne. THE PSALMS: we see a Psalm 2 Christ ruling the Earth with a rod of iron but that never shows up in the Gospels; we also see an end of days Psalm 83 coalition attacking Israel that never did in the Bible times. THE GOSPELS: we see Jesus saying He is coming on the clouds, that there will be global plagues, death, disasters, and then every eye will see Him; judging the nations; sitting on David’s Throne; coming for His own to take them to a place prepared. But none of those ever happened. THE EPISTLES: we see the Earth dissolving in 2 Peter 3; the Lord coming just for His saints in 1 Th 4; a return with flaming fire in wrath 2 Th 1; and rescue of His own in 1 Th 4.
