Revelation Is a Book of Promises!

by Greg Laurie on Jan 27, 2021

The Bible is the one book that dares to predict the future. And it does so with 100 percent accuracy.

God must surely have wanted His people to learn Bible prophecy. He dedicated almost 30 percent of His Scriptures to it. For example, the Old Testament features more than 100 prophecies of Christ’s first coming. Through these prophecies, we know that Jesus is the Messiah, for He fulfilled every single one.

But why should we study Bible prophecy today?

Firstly, we should study Bible prophecy because Jesus promised He come a second time—five times more frequently than He promised He would come the first time! This is how believers can be so confident that He will return physically to set up His kingdom on Earth.

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, has made a promise: “I will come again” (John 14:3). And we can have confidence that He will fulfill this promise.

Secondly, in the Book of Revelation, a blessing is promised to the person who reads, hears, and keeps the words found therein (Revelation 1:3). The more we know about the next world, the better we will live in this one.

That’s why we’re studying Revelation on Harvest at Home. And that’s why our series is titled Revelation: A Book of Promises. Many people understand Revelation to be a book containing judgment, striking imagery, and depictions of the antichrist. While it does contain those things, Revelation is above all a book of promises—and a book that centers around Jesus Christ.

God’s intent in Revelation is not to conceal but to reveal. Bible prophecy is not given to scare us but to prepare us for what’s ahead!

I hope you’ll join us to study this amazing book!
