The book of Revelation is a book of timeless truth and enduring encouragement written to the church in the midst of trial, and on the edge of tribulation.  Filled with vivid imagery, symbols, numbers, and visions it can be a difficult book to interpret. May our reading and studying together make the overwhelming understandable.  May we see Jesus more clearly as the returning and conquering King worthy of worship.

During our 15-week series in Revelation everyone is encouraged to use this plan to read the complete book over the same 15-week period. The plan will give you the context for each week’s Sunday sermon. Let's trust God when he says through his Apostle John in Revelation 1:3, "Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written in it, for the time is near."


As you begin each day:

(1) Find a quiet place where you can be alone. This is important for you to more easily focus as you read and have an awareness of God’s presence. Prepare yourself to listen.

(2) Read the verses taking note of the main points that stand out to you. Whether you have read the verses before or not, approach them with an eagerness to learn something new about God, and about yourself.

(3) Ponder the question. Maybe the question works for you, or maybe you have something else based on the reading that you need to continue to process. Whatever it is, be intentional about thinking and praying about it throughout your day.
