Contents: John was exiled to Patmos by Emperor Domitian, who was worshipped as “God” by his subjects. Chapter 1 introduces John’s readers to Yeshua’s Revelation of Himself to John in heaven. John was commanded by Jesus to write down everything he heard and saw, in detail.

Conclusions: First, Jesus Christ, who is the Alpha and the Omega, is speaking to all of His bond-servants through the Apostle John concerning things he saw, the things which are, and the things which will be in the future. A blessing is promised to those who make Revelation the subject of their meditations and their service motivation. The focus of Revelation is the events that must take place soon.
Key Word: “Revelation” – Revelation 1:1
The Greek word for Revelation is “apokolupsis.” It means “unveiling.” Most of the events detailed in Revelation are introduced in the Hebrew Bible, the Old Testament. What is “unveiled” in this final book of the Bible is the order in which these events will unfold. That is new information that Jewish believers before Christ did not have.
Strong Verses: Revelation 1:3, 5-7, 18
All Scripture points to Jesus. He is the revelator, meaning Jesus is the author of the entire Bible. However, this book is the only book directly authored by the Lord Jesus Himself (Revelation 1:1). John acted more as a “scribe” than was the case when he wrote his Gospel and the three letters bearing his name.
The Lord has attached His benediction to it, encouraging all of His disciples to read, hear, and pay attention to what it says (Revelation 1:3).
Notice in Revelation 1:5 that He Who speaks from heaven is He Who “washed us from our sins in His blood.” Heaven’s anthem magnifies the blood of Christ above everything else.
Memory Hook: Revelation 1, The Revelation of the Son
Committing the “memory hooks” from the companion book, “Revelation To Remember,” to memory builds a summary outline of the Book of Revelation in your mind. This will enable you to ponder the contents of the book, do what it says, and be assured of the blessing Jesus promised.
