A Final Warning

Revelation ends on a solemn note.

Revelation 21, 22: The Seventh Facet

Week 10, Sunday: Until He Comes
John ends his Revelation with a solemn warning as to the importance of this Word from the Lord.

Read Revelation 22

Meditate on Revelation 22.18-21
1.      What does it mean to “add to” the things revealed in Revelation and all the rest of Scripture? How can we know when someone is doing this (cf. Acts 17.11; 1 Cor. 4.6)?

2.      What does it mean to “take away” from the things revealed in Revelation and all Scripture? What did Paul do to make sure the people in Ephesus would not be guilty of this (cf. Acts 20.26, 27)?

3.      How would you counsel a new believer to start making sure that he neither “adds to” nor “takes away” from anything in the Word of God?

4.      Meditate on verses 18 and 19 and the warnings expressed there. How serious would you say the Lord is about our relationship to His words (all His Word)?

5.      Why does John think we need the “grace of our Lord Jesus Christ”? How does His grace relate to what the book of Revelation requires of us? How can we make sure that grace is available to us each day?

My Reflection
What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned from Revelation about your own walk with and work for the Lord?

The Glory of God
In what ways has Revelation helped to clarify your vision of Christ and your understanding of the Lord and His will?

Glory to Glory
What evidence do you see that the message of Revelation is having a positive effect in your daily life? In what ways are you beginning to realize more of the presence, promise, and power of the Kingdom of God?

Review all your memory verses for this series. Use the 3 x 5 cards you wrote them on to aid in your review. Spend some time meditating on each of these verses and how they help you in understanding and applying the message of Revelation.

Closing Prayer
Use your memory verses to lead you through a time of prayer, seeking the grace of the Lord and giving Him thanks and praise as He reveals Himself in Revelation.
