TEXT: REVELATION 1:1-3
(1) The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:
(2) Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
(3) Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.
KEY VERSE: DANIEL 2:19
Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.
God reveals secret and hidden things. He revealed things to Joseph, Daniel, Paul, John and many others. Jesus promised that the Holy Spirit shall reveal things to His followers (John 16:13-16). Some revelations are personal and if they will edify others, they are to be testified of (Mark 13:37). Through the gift of prophecy, the secrets of men are revealed.
1 Corinthians 14:24-25
But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all: And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth.
Prophecy should not be despised. It is God speaking in prophecies. (1 Thessalonians 5:20). God does transport the spirit of a man to somewhere to see and hear His Works and Plans and return to the body and testify to others (Ezekiel 40:1-4). God can take people to hell to see the horror of it and return to testify to others, to serve as warning to them against sin and satan (Isaiah 66:24).
God also will take a person to Heaven to see the bliss of eternity according to His desired purpose, as He did with Paul the Apostle. The form, this will take is the prerogative of God (1 Corinthians 13:1-5). Prophecies and revelations of God as in scripture are valid today (Hebrews 13:8). Hence, the present prophetic revelations and visions given by God to chosen individuals are scriptural and should be accepted by the followers of Christ (1 Thessalonians 5:19-21).
What the scripture cautions is to test the spirit and to ensure the message given is not contrary to the scripture (Galatians 1:6-9; 1 John 4:1-2). Many stumble over revelation experience because of what Abraham said to the rich man in hell (Luke 16:27-31). The dialogue was between him and Abraham. Neither Abraham nor angels know what strategy God has in the end time, in His wisdom, as the master soul winner.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Authentic prophecies and revelations are doing much today.
Song for the day: Open my eyes Oh Lord, Hallelujah…
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: 2 Chronicles 23-25; John 16:16-33
