Book of Revelation

Will Pastor Dion be doing a series on the book of revelation? I have finally, after 3-4 years made it to the book of revelation on my first cover to cover read through of the bible. From what I have read, it seems to be a complex book and there is a lot of imagery involved.

    Hi Tyler, congratulations on reading through the entire Bible. I have read that less than 2% of Christians have done that. I love the depth of the Word and lately enjoy listening to it on random play. So I may hear a chapter from Luke, then a chapter from Genesis or a chapter from Revelation. You never know what you will get it and it is fun when the Holy Spirit links them together. 

     

    I usually do not know what I will speak on from week to week. I just pray in tongues until something comes, then people say "WOW! I desperately needed to hear that!" and I just smile as it sure wasn't my idea to preach it. 

     

    Maybe the Lord will allow me to teach on the book of Revelation some time. To be honest, there is a lot that I don't fully understand about it. Though I do know that John was writing during the Roman persecution of the church and that is why some of the book is so mysterious. Some things were intentionally hidden in mystery like 666. He could have just said the guys name... unless it was dangerous to do so. I have a strong feeling that a lot of the book is already behind us and we are approaching the end of it.

    Well done, Tyler :)! Dion will see this later, but he doesn't currently plan that far ahead on his messages. It's essentially what he hears in prayer to talk about week by week. He can answer in more detail when he sees this in a bit though :)

      Ok, thank you Sylvia :) The bible is a very important book I think everyone should read from cover to cover at least once in their lifetimes. I have found Pastor Dion's series to be invaluable tools to aid in learning. And I do enjoy his weekly messages, ...  more
