The Revelation Of Jesus Christ
The book of Revelation, the last book of the bible. Many people do not like this book, but I find it exciting! I know that people believe differently about the end days. I am writing this cover sheet based on my belief. I believe in the rapture of the church, I believe that Jesus will return in the clouds of glory to take us home before the seven year tribulation period starts. Some people believe we will have to endure the tribulation, but I am not one of them. And my belief allows me to be excited about the book of revelation, and not fear it!
Revelation 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
This is a powerful verse. This is God telling us right up front who he is. All through the bible God tells us who he is, he don't say I may be, or I could be, or what if I was, no he tells us he is, in Revelation 1:8 he says: I AM ! God knows who he is, and he wants us to know who he is too. So purpose in your heart who God really is, believe what his word says, trust in the Lord, and you will be fine while reading the book of Revelation. Ask God to open the meaning of this book up to you, ask him to reveal this book for what it really is, and he will. I could tell you what this book means to me, but, God don't want that, he wants to show you what the book of Revelation means. Many pastors, preachers, and evangelist do not preach much from the book of Revelation, and I think this is the reason why:
Revelation 1:3 Blessed 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 1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, A-men.
Revelation 1:3 says "Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy" Many preachers state the verse: "Faith cometh by hearing" which is true, but in Revelation 1:3 it is written that "blessed is he that readeth" I believe that if we ask God to show us the meaning of this book, and then we read it with the understanding that God is going to reveal it to us, then we will be blessed with the total understanding of each verse. And with that complete understanding comes undeniable belief in God, which takes away any fear we may have about the book of Revelation. So ask God to reveal the book of Revelation to you, because "Blessed 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 1:7 says "Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him," This is the second coming of Christ! It says every eye shall see him, not just the ones that have believed on him, but every eye! Jesus Christ will be seen with the fleshly eye again, every person on earth will see him with their eyes! There will be no denying him then. Every individual person shall see him. Just as every individual person has their own personal relationship with God, it becomes one on one with God in this verse, "And every eye shall see him" This is a statement, this is not a maybe, or a what if, or a could be, no this is a fact ! So don't shy away from the book of Revelation, it too is the word of God. God wants you to read it, and he wants to reveal it to you, for after all this is the end of the book, and the beginning of the end of evil on earth! I hope I haven't confused anyone, if I have let me know and I will try to explain it in a little more detail.
Heavenly Father, my glorious God, my heart cries praises to you, my soul craves your presence, my mouth confesses that you are the living God. I praise you my God, I worship you my Lord, for you are Jehovah God! Thank you Lord, thank you, thank you Jesus for taking my place in the lonesome, dark, evil place we call hell, because if it had not been for your three day decent into hell I would in no way be able to enter into the kingdom of heaven, thank you my Jesus for loving me that much, thank you for enduring the pain of being beat with a cat of nine tails, thank you for the thirty nine stripes you took for me so that I may be healed of any and all sickness, disease, or pain that Satan may try to put upon me, thank you Jesus for the torture you endured at the hands of the very people you came here to save, thank you Jesus for being crucified in my place! The pain must have been unbelievable my Lord, Thank You for suffering for me, thank you for dying for me, and above all thank you making a way for me to enter into the kingdom of God where I can stand before you "Face to face" and say Thank You! My God I pray that this cover sheet is a blessing to someone, and I pray that each and every person that reads this will be blessed abundantly by your loving grace. I thank you for my life here on earth my Father, and I thank you for my eternal life to come! In the name of my Redeemer Jesus Christ I pray, A-men.

An Extra Page For The Glory Of God.
I want to give you some scriptures here and then what they mean from a little WWJD book I was loaned. This book was loaned to me by a young lady that totally believes in God. First though I want to tell you why she loaned me this book: This young lady does the bible studies every month. She is strong in the Lord. I spend several hours a week with her and her family, who all believe in the Lord, and I consider myself blessed by just knowing them. Anyway back to the little WWJD book (What Would Jesus Do). WWJD was one of my favorite sayings when I was dealing with her about the bible and about Gods word. I know she got tired of hearing me say WWJD! When she was fighting with her brother "Twin" I would say What Would Jesus Do, and of course that ended the disagreement for the time being. When she was having troubles with someone in school, again I came across with WWJD! You see where I am going with this, every problem was answered with WWJD, which for me works. Those four little letters (WWJD) can change an attitude instantly, they can replace a frown with a smile instantly, they can take a troubled mind and ease it instantly. So she managed to get in her possession this little WWJD book of which she handed me and said: Take it home with you and read it, I'll let you it's mine!" So I did, and I have read it several times, it has 60 different verses pertaining to WWJD and I would like to share a few of them with you, because they have inspired me so much, because her faith and belief in God builds my faith and belief in God, I don't want to cut her brother "Twin" short when it comes to God either, this young man is like a walking bible, I have never been one for memorizing verses, I know what they say, but most of them I cannot tell you where to find them in the bible, however this young man can listen to something you are talking about and know exactly what it says, and where it is located in the bible, and usually quote the verse word for word, it amazes me. This young lady, and young man are a great inspiration to me, they give me hope for the future, they bring peace into my life, they strengthen my walk with God by allowing me to observe their walk with God, and by allowing me to be a part of their lives I will be forever grateful to them and to God for bringing them into my life. This young lady and young man understand much more about God than many adult christians do. This young lady and young man are 12 years old!
I Peter 2:21 For even here unto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps.
WWJD says: HE WOULD BE AN EXAMPLE. We have been called to follow the example of Jesus' life and, be an example to others. Keep company with good men and good men you will imitate.
I Peter 2:21 "TLB" This suffering is all part of the work God has given you. Christ, who suffered for you, is your example. Follow in his steps
III John 1:3 For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth. III John 1:4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
WWJD says: HE WOULD WALK IN TRUTH. When we walk in the truth we are walking in a manner worthy of God. Keep true, never be ashamed of doing right; decide on what you know is right and stick to it.
III John 1:3-4 "TLB" Some of the brothers traveling by have made me very happy by telling me that your life stays clean and true, and that you are living by the standards of the Gospel. I could have no greater joy than to hear such things about my children.
Luke 18:11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.
Luke 18:13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.
Luke 18:14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
WWJD Says: HE WOULD AVOID PRIDEFUL WORDS. Jesus warns us not to use words of pride to make ourselves look good to other people. Pride: the first peer and president of hell.
Luke 18:11-13-14 "TLB" The Pharisee stood alone and prayed, "God, I thank you that I am not like other people who steal, cheat, or take part in adultery.' The tax collector, standing at a distance, would not even look up to heaven. But he beat on his chest because he was so sad. He said, 'God, have mercy on me, a sinner.' ...All who make themselves great will be made humble, and all who make themselves humble will be made great."
