The lesson on January 3, 2016 was part 4 of "The Apocalypse" study. There was a 20 minute review of what was previously covered in the earlier lessons before Wayne asked the questions "What is Revelation revealing"? and exploring the passage in Romans 6:23 where we learn that the wages of sin is death... but there are two deaths mentioned in scripture so what death did Jesus Christ die, the first or second death? Time is spent on learning how to interpret Revelation 1:19-20. Wayne compared the passages speaking to the "Overcomers" and the impact on their eternal life if they don't overcome. This is in strong contrast as to what the Apostle PAul tells us in Ephesians pointing out the fact that Revelation is entrenched with the nation of Israel. The scripture reading was from Revelation 3:7-13 KJV
"7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; 8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. 9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. 10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. 12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. 13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches."
