Key Word: Revelation of the Son, Revelation 1:1
Strong Verses: Revelation 1:3,5-7, 18
Striking Facts: This book is the only book having the Lord Jesus Himself as Author (Revelation 1:1). It is a “revelation,” which means “an unveiling” or “disclosure,” not a mystery, and the Lord Jesus has attached His benediction to it to encourage us to read, hear and keep (Revelation 1:3). Notice in Revelation 1:5 that He Who speaks from heaven is He Who “washed us from our sins in His own blood.” Heaven’s anthem magnifies the blood of Christ above everything else.
