Many people have asked the question, Is the Bible Relevant? Given the modern and technology times we are living in, this first episode of this podcast begins with searching the bible to answer this question.
Our search begins with chapter 22 of the book of Revelation.
During this search, we identified seventeen significant factors providing us with clues to the answer of our question; is the bible relevant today? The list of the seventeen factors are as follows:
- A pure river of water proceeding from the throne of God and from the Lamb.
- The Tree of Life that has leaves for the healing of the nations.
- There will be no more curse.
- Everyone will see HIS face and HIS name shall be on their foreheads.
- They will need no lamp nor light of the sun because GOD will give them light, and they will reign forever and ever. Then the GOD of the Holy Prophets sent HIS Angel to show HIS Servants the things which must shortly take place.
- A promise is made, which is that HE is coming quickly.
- The Angel identifies himself, and he tells us to worship GOD.
- The Angel tells us to NOT seal the words of the prophecy of the book, in this case, the book of Revelation.
- Time will stand still for a short period, because each persons character will remain as it is when HE comes.
- HE is bringing rewards with HIM to give each person a reward according to their works.
- Blessings will be given to those who are doing HIS commandments; and they will have the right to the Tree of Life, and to enter through the gates of the city.
- HE identifies those who will NOT be allowed through the gates into the city.
- HE identifies who HE is.
- An invitation is given to anyone who a) hears b) thirsts or c) desires, to take the water of life, FREELY.
- Two conditional promises are made: One promise is given to some people that they will receive the plagues written in the book, and another promise is given to people that their names will be removed from the book of life, their allowance to enter the Holy City will not be permitted and the removal of the plagues from the book will not be allowed to them.
- A repeat of an earlier promise AND a warning; HE is coming quickly!
- The Apostle, John, prays for anyone who hears or reads the Revelation…”May the grace of our Lord/Christ be with you ALL.”
This episode specifically focuses on the promise of how to identify that HE is coming quickly.
Apart from the book of Revelation, we also look at the book of Genesis to get a birds eye view in reference to time with GOD.
Additionally, this episode provides a brief testimonial of my own experiences with reading the bible and gaining understanding and clarity to the process of finding out what GOD wants men and women on the earth to know about HIM.
