Revelation

 

And so John begins receiving his visions.

He was in the Spirit. A proper noun referring to the Holy Spirit. This is a reference to the control of the Holy Spirit over John’s soul, and is the normal function of any believer when they have confessed their sins to God the Father.

John was in the Spirit. He had just confessed his sins, whatever they might have been. Most believers will confess arrogance if nothing else comes to mind, just to cover their bases, so to speak. Anyway, John was in fellowship. Details of this process (confession and fellowship) are found in the 1 Jn., study.

Being in fellowship is extremely important, for it is within the fellowship sphere, that your spiritual life functions. When you commit a sin, you are automatically out of fellowship, and when out of fellowship, your spiritual life does not function. Therefore, you are required to confess your sins to God the Father, in order to get back into fellowship.

John was in fellowship, and it happened to be on a Sunday, referred here as the Lords day. This is not a reference to the Day of the Lord, but the first day of the week, Sunday, commonly referred to as the Lord Day, because of the resurrection occurring on a Sunday morning. The phrase, ‘kuriakos hemera,’ was widely used in the first two centuries A.D., and that is where the ‘Lords Day’ phrase came from.

The loud voice was Jesus Christ, Ezek 3:12, 12-13, 17-18.

The sound ‘like a trumpet’ is a reference not to a trumpet, there was no music here, but this is an expression of clarity. The voice was an actual voice. But the sound was clear, and loud, and easily understood. It was not muffled, or veiled making it difficult to understand. But the voice was clear and crisp.

It was loud. In Revelation, the phrase ‘loud voice’ generally means that what is about to be said or revealed demands a solemnity of attitude and respect, Rev. 5:2,12; 6:10; 7:2,10; 8:13; 10:3; 11:12,15; 12:10; 14:2,15,18; 16:1,17; 19:1,17; 21:3. When you have great respect for someone, then when they walk by, or are in your presence, or begin to speak, then you become instantly quiet, and bring all of your attention and concentration toward them.

And even when the person you respect is not present, but you are reading their words, then you likewise give deference to their words, by maintaining yourself in silence and concentration.

Hummm? Do you suppose that includes Bible study?




These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
