Study the Book of Revelation
Contrary to popular opinion the Book of Revelation was not, I repeat, not written to us or to our generation. Instead it was written to seven city-churches located in Asia Minor (today's Turkey) and to the saints of the first century to prepare them for certain catastrophic and age-ending events that were about to take place in their day.
No, it is not about the coming of a future Antichrist, Cobra Helicopters, or World War III! Nor is it about the end of the world. It is about the destruction of Herod's Temple, the judgment of the Harlot City of Jerusalem, the end of the Jewish Age (the age of Moses), the revelation and establishment of Messiah's Kingdom and His Church. All of which took place in 70 A.D., when Titus and the armies of Rome destroyed the Jewish temple and burned Jerusalem, just as Jesus and the prophets of Israel had prophesied they would!
The burning of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Jewish Temple was in fact the sign on earth that the Son of Man (the promised Messiah and the Son of God) is now ruling in heaven as King of kings and Lord of lords, that the Jewish age has ended and that Messiah's Day and the times of the gentiles, i.e. the judgment or conquest of the nations has begun. In Messiah's Day King Jesus is dealing with the present evil age and judging or disciplining men and nations on the basis of their obedience or disobedience to the Gospel of the Kingdom, just as He dealt with apostate Israel in the 40 year period between the outpouring of the Spirit on the day of Pentecost and the destruction of the Temple in 70 A.D..
This critically important study of the Book of Revelation is available as NT 701 "The Revelation of John" and is part of our doctoral program. Taught by Apostle Rod Seago, one of South Africa's premier Bible teachers and preachers, NT 701 is available for our Spring Semester which begins January 13. ATS Chancellor George Kouri will also be featured as a special guest lecturer for dialogue with the doctoral students and to answer questions. Don't miss this exciting, relevant, and paradigm changing study as Apostle Seago allows Jesus and the Prophets of Israel explain the prophecy given to John the apostle to prepare the saints of the 1st century for what was about to happen in their day.
