Several mentioned that I went from the Song of Solomon to the Revelation on my Tuesday/Thursday Facebook devotionals. Why not jump right into the deep end?
I took an interpretive approach that the Revelation was primarily written to encourage Christians who were the victims of both Jewish and Roman persecution in the first-century (preterist). This approach is not as fantastic or as popular as those approaches that place the enigmatic prophecies of the book at the 20th-century Cold War or even in current America.
However, the love of God for the early church AND the critical importance of the survival of the early church is wonderfully encouraging even 2000 years later. Yes, the great news about Jesus is even more important than the mightiest empire in world history.
This was a methodical, expository approach. I hope you enjoy! (Note: I never was correct with the Part X, etc. in my original broadcasts. These below are correct).
