Understanding the Power of Preaching About Revelations and “End Times”
The Bible is filled with hundreds of amazing mysteries, prophecies, miraculous events, stories, and lessons that allow clergy a wide array of topics to focus on throughout the year. But some topics in the Bible can be difficult to preach. One of the more challenging topics is the “end times” scripture.
The Importance of Eschatological Scripture
Eschatology is the study of the “end times” doctrine in the Bible. Unlike other areas of the Bible that have already occurred, Eschatological scripture focuses on a future prophecy in the Bible when the man-made world ends, and a new reign of God walking with man begins and lasts forever. However, before this promised time of paradise can occur, the Bible proclaims that everything on earth made by man will be destroyed, and all that is evil will be permanently crushed and removed.
The Book of Revelations of Jesus Christ
While many Christians know the Apostle John wrote the Book of Revelations, few know that John wrote this book while in exile on the Greek Isle of Patmos. Even fewer know John wrote the book at the direction of Christ, who revealed himself and the future of the world to him through an angel visitation. Teaching these lessons usually requires a sound Revelation sermon series for parishioners to grasp its importance and meaning.
The Book of Revelations is a powerful testimony that the angel declared unto John in Revelations 1:3(KJV). “Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.”
