The most frequently requested Christ in Prophecy television show episodes on Revelation have been pulled out of the vault and re-released!
Over the six episodes, Dr. David Reagan and guests Don McGee of Crown and Sickle Ministries and Dennis Pollock of Spirit of Grace Ministries go chapter by chapter through the book of Revelation, explaining that the book of Revelation isn't difficult to understand, rather it is difficult to believe. But, if you will believe it for its plain sense meaning, you will understand it. For anyone who's been born again and has the Holy Spirit residing within them, Revelation can become very clear.
We'll end our great journey through the Book of Revelation with our teachers leaving us with great hope in the very last promise Jesus gave in Revelation 22. Feel free to watch, listen, or read along by clicking one of the icons below.
Revelation: Discussion of Chapters 21-22
[Read Chapters 21-22 in the NASB version via Biblegateway.]
Dr. Reagan: Jesus says two times in Revelation 22, "I am coming quickly." What in the world did He mean by that? It's been 2,000 years!
Don McGee: He meant "how" not "when."
Dennis Pollock: Another word is "suddenly" as in "coming suddenly." A lot of times when we were kids we couldn't wait for Christmas to come and it seemed to drag so slow and take so long, and then suddenly — suddenly! — it was here and it was gone. Jesus saying "I'm coming suddenly" meant very quickly.
Dr. Reagan: Yes, in fact, in one passage it even talks about like lightening across the sky. It's going to be "BANG!" just like that. Certainly He is coming quickly, and I think He is coming soon. I think He's coming very soon.
We talked about the signs of the times, the Jews are back in the land, they're back in their city, the whole world is coming together against them over the issue of Jerusalem. The Bible says that when all those things come together and that the European Union rises from the dead, Jesus will be at the very gates of Heaven. And, let me tell you, when you know that, you know the Rapture is right around the corner!
Dr. Reagan: Revelation 21 and 22 contain a lot of glorious promises such as eternal life in a beautiful New Jerusalem on a New Earth in the presence of our Creator and our Savior. Revelation 21:7 says, "All these promises will be inherited by those who are overcomers." Don, give us a definition of an Overcomer.
Don McGee: An Overcomer is a person who has overcome the penalty of sin by placing his or her faith in Jesus as Lord and Savior. A good definition of an Overcomer is to be found in 1 John 5:1-5 where it says that, "Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God. And whatever is born of God overcomes the world." The passage then concludes with a summary question, "And who is the one who overcomes the world?" The answer John gives is — he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
Dr. Reagan: Dennis, tell us specifically what must a person do to become an Overcomer?
Dennis Pollock: Glad to. I have some good news and some bad news. Let's go with the bad news first. You have a mighty army of enemies arrayed against you. This wicked world, the demons that flit through the air, the Devil himself, and your own sinful flesh are all working together to keep you from God and from inheriting His promises. The Devil's great desire is to drag you down to the same Hell that is his own destiny. That's the bad news.
Now, for the good news, there is a God in Heaven who loves you with an everlasting love and He's provided a way for you to escape — God's provision is His Son Jesus Christ. He died on the cross as your substitute. He took all the wrath, all the judgment, all the agony that you and I deserve. God says that if you will trust in what Christ did on the cross, and believe that He was raised from the dead and receive Him as your Savior, every sin you've ever committed will be blotted out and you will receive eternal life as a free gift. You'll find a place reserved for you in the New Jerusalem. Your name will be found in the Lamb's Book of Life and you will enjoy fellowship with the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit forever and ever and ever.
Take hold of that provision today. Receive Jesus as your Savior before the judgments from the book of Revelation soon begin.
