Genesis reaches back and portrays the beginning of all things, and Revelation reaches ahead and portrays the consummation of all things in God’s judgment of humanity and creation of a new cosmos. This powerful Apocalypse (this word means “unveiling,” “disclosure,” “revelation”) gives us a prophetic look at the completion of God’s program and purposes for human history and elevates our minds and hearts to the sovereignty, majesty, wisdom, power, holiness, and dominion of the eternal Alpha and Omega.
The Revelation of Jesus Christ begins with a prologue (1:1-3), a salutation which portrays the triune God (1:4-8), and a theophany (a visible manifestation of God) of the omnipotent and omniscient Christ who will conquer and rule all things (1:9-20).
READING of REVELATION 1
Lord, Your Son is the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. He loves us and released us from our sins by His blood—and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father—to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever.
