The Revelation

Pastor Kerry Wilson

The Revelation
‡ The next few months or weeks are going to be full of imagery, seven headed, ten horned monsters, a beast, a dragon, statues, prophetic symbolism, a mark, frogs, a harlot riding the monster murdering church people, and manipulating policy. Locust like creatures, blood up to the bridle of horses and much more imagery.

The Revelation
‡ If we are to embrace this series of sermons for more than entertainment, or learning more about the end of the world, we must approach it from the heavenly depiction given to us in the scripture. ‡ We are not interested in becoming prophecy gurus, or pinpointing people of prophetic origin. ‡ We are not going to give our timeline on the end but get in sync with what is going on in heaven.

The Revelation
‡ We will preach on the conditions of the world, the conditions of the church and the prophetic writings concerning both. ‡ We will preach concerning Israel and her prophetic role. We will preach on the Antichrist, the False Prophet, Lucifer, fallen to Satan. ‡ We will preach about oil, money, Islam, the ten toes of the Roman Empire, The Rapture, Judgment, and the end of the world. ‡ The nature of deception, the mark of the beast, etc.

The Revelation
‡ Where are we going to start? ‡ We are going to start with igniting and stepping up our WORSHIP! ‡ In every setting of prophetic relevance that I can find there is worship that is occurring which enables the person to understand the vision, message or event.

The Revelation
‡ We are going to start with the unveiling of the Revelation of Jesus Christ .. ‡ Revelation 1:13-17 (New King James Version) ‡ 13 and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band. 14 His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire; 15 His feet were like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters; 16 He had in His right hand seven stars, out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength. 17 And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me,[a] Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last.

The Revelation
‡ John hadn t seen Jesus since somewhere in the early 30 ad s. It is now the 90 ad s and things have changed including the appearance and the position of Jesus. ‡ Jesus s admonition to John is the same as it was for us an unveiling or a revelation if you will. Fear not, I am he that liveth, and was dead; Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

The Revelation
‡ This series is about the Revelation of Jesus Christ, his inclusion of his people on His presence, power, plan

‡ It is much easier to have church without His presence

The Revelation
‡ Here are some facts about worship.. ‡ Revelation 4:11 (New King James Version) ‡ 11 You are worthy, O Lord,[a] To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist[b] and were created. ‡ Revelation 5:12 (New King James Version) ‡ 12 saying with a loud voice: Worthy is the Lamb who was slain To receive power and riches and wisdom, And strength and honor and glory and blessing!

The Revelation
‡ All of heaven gets excited when you begin to worship Him. ‡ Worship defines the value of any object or person .. ‡ When I examine revelation of Jesus I see two things happening for sure .. ‡ The first thing is found in Ezekial 1, Isaiah 6, Revelation 1, people are falling as dead from the overwhelming weightiness of His glory .

The Revelation
‡ His glory is the physical reality of the spiritual presence. Glory can be defined as weightiness or knowing something larger than life itself is present .. ‡ It is something we need to embrace, I don t know how you view Jesus, but you need to read John s latest description and get a view. ‡ He doesn t appear as weak, lamblike and incapable .

The Revelation
‡ The second thing I see are these creatures, they have six wings, faces depicted in three different fashions and they are inviting and causing wind from the effects of their presence. They inhabit and invoke more worship from earth to heaven day and night.. ‡ We have archangels, angels, cherubim's and seraphim's

The Revelation
‡ These angelic host are highly active in the presence and the glory of God. They seem to usher in the presence or the absence of the glory of God . They are excited about the eternal plan of God happening and God taking His place in the hearts and minds of men and women .. We should be excited as well!

The Revelation
‡ Ezekiel 1:20 (King James Version) ‡ 20Whithersoever the spirit was to go, they went, thither was their spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.

The Revelation
‡ We see the effects of His presence in worship with John s revelation. ‡ His presence begins to do only what He can do. Churches, men and women become faced with the situations and problems that only He can solve. ‡ His presence unleashes His power, power for the church to align with Him in His plan

The Revelation
‡ I believe God is aligning the church in worship and committed presence so that Jesus can be in position through His plan to begin to open.. ‡ I believe the angelic host is administering marks even as we speak. Who is on the Lord s side, who is concerned about the deception, state of slumber and compromise running widespread through the church.

The Revelation
Revelation 5 1And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. 2And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? 3And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. 4And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. 5And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

The Revelation
‡ All of heaven is waiting for this event, the opening of this book It is the Lamb that opens and unleashes this power ‡ He said All power is given to me in heaven and earth This will be the enactment of that power ‡ Worship precedes and a post celebration of the openings of the seals ..

The Revelation
‡ This world and majority of the church has not seen His power yet.. But when begins to speak everything and everyone is going to listen . ‡ This power unleashes His plan, that is what we are going to be ministering on in this series. His plan, that is what all these warnings, preparations, strange happenings are about

The Revelation
‡ They are the opening of the book of God s plan for the Ages ..
