I woke from sleep early Sunday morning, before day break and tried to do some reading but found it difficult. I am in America with my wife, Merline visiting our daughter Christine and her husband Anthony as they celebrate the birth of their second child, Abigail.

I am enjoying my family here in Fayetteville, Georgia: Anthony junior soon to be four years old is fun to be with. His heart and mind are so innocent and pure; again I understand why Jesus said that to enter His Kingdom one had to be converted and become like a child.

Baby Abigail is a delight, she is only four weeks old but the miracle of life is manifested in this bundle of joy as one holds her. Whatever she does, and at this age is only a few things, is alright with me for it all speaks of life.

She is so wholly dependant on her parents and other carers that she would not last 24 hours without them. This level of care will remain for years and reduce over time but never entirely end it will only change.

Again I write, humans must never be proud for all that we might become and achieve would never have been possible without our parents, family and other members of society. I may never live to see Abigail grow up to be married and have her own family but I do pray that she will bring great joy and happiness to her parents, family and humanity. Moreover, that she walks with God and live to the full extent of her natural life and in the world to come eternal life.

I go back to bed and surprisingly fall off to sleep again waking some hours later this time it is day break. I meditate on the words of the Lord and in my spirit I hear the words “the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy”. I dwell in meditation on these words and there came a stirring within, a signal that something important was about to be communicated to me for this is the way I usually get messages to preach and since I started writing regularly: books, articles and blogs.

After yielding to the flood of thoughts whirling in my spirit and mind I pick up the bible and read in Revelation chapter 19 the text: “the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy”. Blogs number 217 and 218 are the subjects of this extract. As I continued to read from the book of Revelation, blog number 219 came into my, by now, quickened spirit and ready mind. Then finally, blog number 220 which is the subject of this blog.

I intend to write on some of the major bible themes in the book of Revelation. At this point I don’t know which ones I will write about, I will leave this to the Holy Spirit. The surprise to me is I left the UK with every intention to do much writing for I have the time to do so yet until this morning I have hardly written anything apart from an e bulletin. I completed blog number 216 whist here in the USA but it came to me on 4th April while still in the UK.

I make the above point because I never sit down and say I will write a blog, it always come whilst in prayer or meditation and always via my spirit.

The book of Revelation, as the opening chapter makes clear, is the further and final revelation of Jesus Christ. The opening chapter also makes clear that the apostle John received it whilst banished on the Isle of Patmos.

The facts about John and what happened to him should be undeniable. His experiences on the Island should also be undeniable. The issue for some is the difficulty in understanding it so its dismissed or ignored.

John sees visions, has visitations and receives revelations of the past, present and future. Angels are sent by God to help John to understand the many things he hears and sees whilst on the Island. The ministry of angels is neglected today but they still have a part to play in the affairs of our world and in the ministry of God’s servants here on earth. Indeed in every major event on the earth, you will find the involvement of angels but they are not called to preach the gospel of salvation but are instead sent to help God’s servants to accomplish our mission in the propagation of the gospel of Christ and the salvation of men.

Let me end this introduction to the series of blogs on the book of revelation with a quotation from the opening chapter.

“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”.

God save the UK. Our platform is the world and our congregation the people.

The Lord’s servant
