Revelation 12:1 – 18:24 | July 30

Remember as you read Revelation, it is not chronological and there are parenthetical statements through the book. Revelation 12-15 go with the chronology of Revelation 6, 8-9, and 11:15-19. Chapter 16-18 continues where 11:19 stops. Read Revelation 12:1 – 18:24

Revelation 1:1 – 5:14 | July 28

Whoever reads, and hears, and keeps the words of this prophecy are blessed. It is a mistake to view the book as a revelation (apocalypse) “by” or “from Jesus” and not “of Jesus.”  The NIV and NLT poorly translate it as from Jesus Christ. The book is a revelation of Jesus–Grammatically, Jesus is being revealed and is communicated by an Angel to John. Seven is the number of perfection. Questions: … Read More Revelation 1:1 – 5:14 | July 28

2 John and 3 John | July 27

These two brief letters are written by the apostle John in his old age, probably in his nineties. These two short little letters are an encouragement to abide in the sound doctrine of Christ and to watch out for evil that creeps into the church. Second John is written to a Christian lady.  Many have tried to figure out what or who this lady … Read More 2 John and 3 John | July 27

1 John 1:1 – 5:21 | July 26

The apostle John wrote this letter, along with 2nd and 3rd John, and the Revelation sometime after A.D. 90. He is an excellent example for older men not to give up, as long as we have breath, and keep serving the Lord. John shows tenderness in his old age, addressing his readers as his “children.” Men who follow Christ as they mature, become less … Read More 1 John 1:1 – 5:21 | July 26

2 Peter 1:1 – 3:18 and Jude | July 25

Like Paul before, Peter too is aware of his impending death (or martyrdom), yet he remains joyful. Peter however, warns of false teachers who will deny redemption truth. Jude also foresees a coming apostasy in both the church members and false teachers. With apostasy sure to surface (and perhaps we are seeing it more and more today), these apostles remain confident in God and … Read More 2 Peter 1:1 – 3:18 and Jude | July 25

2 Timothy 1:1 – 4:22 | July 24

This is the apostle Paul’s final letter, written about A.D. 66.  The following year while a prisoner in Rome, he would be beheaded. The words of a man who knows his death is near carry more weight. I have fought a good fight, Paul says.  I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. What more could a Christian man or woman seek … Read More 2 Timothy 1:1 – 4:22 | July 24

Hebrews 11:1 – 13:25 | July 23

One of the greatest chapters in the Bible is Hebrews chapter 11–We are presented with the heroes of faith. Chapter 12 speaks of running the Christian race, which is certainly applicable for all believers.  Finally, the writer leaves us with a great benediction of what the “God of peace” might do for us all. Read Hebrews 11:1 – 13:25

Hebrews 7:1 – 10:39 | July 22

Hebrews 1:1 – 6:20 | July 21

The writer of Hebrews is unknown.  The authorship has been a controversy since the earliest times.  There is some evidence the apostle Paul was the author (Hebrews 13:23; 2 Peter 3:15), but it is inconclusive. The audience for Hebrews is…Jews.  If Paul is the author, then this is the only book he wrote when he did not have Gentiles in mind.  While the book … Read More Hebrews 1:1 – 6:20 | July 21

1st Peter 1:1 – 5:13 | July 20

Peter wrote this letter around A.D. 60. It is clear from 1:1,2 he is addressing redeemed Jews in the diaspora.  The theme running through the book is preparation for victory over suffering. A quick search reveals Peter uses a form of the word suffering sixteen times. It is a keyword in his epistle. While written to Jewish believers, we who are non-Jews can see … Read More 1st Peter 1:1 – 5:13 | July 20
