Revelation Unveiled Ep 21: Chapter 5 – Worthy is the Lamb

1/17/2021 Revelation chapter 5 focuses on a seven-sealed scroll, and the person qualified to open. The scroll is a title deed – the title deed to the earth (if not ALL creation). No one on earth, under the earth, or in Heaven is worthy to open it and take possession of the title…except for the One who paid the price for it! Jesus not only redeemed us, but he redeemed the entire physical world! And now that He is FINALLY ready to take possession of it, the entire universe...


Revelation Unveiled Ep 19 – The Rapture: Real or Myth?

believers away and instantly transport them to Heaven sounds pretty preposterous. This idea has led many to question its scriptural veracity. However, the concept of the Rapture is clearly presented in the Bible multiple times – including four previous raptures which NO ONE disputes! And despite arguments to the contrary, the end-times Rapture is not a recent church invention. It was taught by the Apostle Paul, and prominent early Church Fathers. The only people who dispute the idea of the...


Revelation Unveiled – Ep 18: Throne Room of God

12/23/2020 The throne room of God is the key feature of Revelation Chapter 4. It is a truly magnificent spectacle. And while we have seen depictions of the Throne Room elsewhere in the Bible, this passage is unique in a few ways. Of significance are the clear references to the presence of the Church in Heaven after the Church Age. There are reasons to believe that the 24 Elders and the 7 lampstands represent the physical presence of the Church in God’s royal court. We’ll...


Revelation Unveiled – Ep 17: The End of the Church Age

12/14/2020 Eventually, the Church Age will end. The Book of Revelation makes it clear that there will be a definitive end to this Dispensation. After Chapter 4, the term “church” is no longer mentioned. But the pertinent questions are WHEN and HOW does the church age end? Since we are currently in the Church Age, we don’t have the luxury of hindsight, so we have to speculate. (but that’s what we do best on Faith By Reason). In this episode, we look at how this Age might end...


Revelation Unveiled – Episode 16: Letter to Lukewarm Laodicea

12/7/2020 Laodicea is the Lukewarm Church. These cowardly Christians were so afraid of long their status, prosperity, and comfort, that they refused to take a stand on anything! They would neither passionately embrace Jesus, or definitively reject Him. They refused to make any choice at all! They figured that as long as they didn’t move in one direction or the other, they could remain safe from both the condemnation of the World and the judgment of God. But they were...


Revelation Unveiled Ep 15 – Khazar Ashkenazi Controversy

11/29/2020 Kazarian Jews, or Ashkenazi Jews are among the most controversial topics in culture and geopolitics. The idea is that the paganistic medieval Khazarian empire converted to Judaism under duress. And these Slavic/Turkic people immigrated to eastern Europe after the fall of their empire and became the people called “European Jews” to this day. The primary controversy is that a subsection of these Ashkenazi’s gained tremendous wealth and influence through...


Revelation Unveiled – Ep 14 Those Who Say They Are Jews But Are Not

11/29/2020 The Synagogue of Satan is a title Jesus gives to a group of people who say they are Jews, but are not and are harassing His Church. Jesus mentions this Synagogue of Satan twice in His Seven Letters to Seven Churches, so its obviously something that He wants us to take note of. We postulated in the study on the Letter to Smryna, that from a contemporary perspective, these folks were likely Edomites. But who might the Synagogue of Satan be historically and...


Revelation Unveiled Ep 13: Letter to Philadelphia

11/13/2020 Philadelphia is the faithful Church. Jesus’ letter to Philadelphia is full of effusive praise and incredible promises. He tells them that they have an open door to Him. And because they have remained faithful to Him, Jesus will PHYSICALLY REMOVE them from the cataclysmic time of The tribulation that will come upon the earth! Jesus also tells the Philadelphian Church that He will give them His name and will make them a part of His royal family. Essentially, Jesus...


Revelation Unveiled – Ep 12: Sardis and the Failure of the Reformation

11/9/2020 The Protestant Reformation was one of the most pivotal movements in western history. Great work was done to return Christians to the true definition of salvation, which had been corrupted for 1000 years by the Catholic hierarchy. Prophetically, the period of the Reformation maps to the letter to the Church at Sardis. However, Sardis is one of two churches about which Jesus has nothing positive to say. If the Reformation did so many great things for the Church,...


Revelation Unveiled – Ep 11: Letter to Sardis part 1

10/30/2020 Sardis is the Dead Church. How could a Church of the Living God be dead? In His letter to the Church at Sardis, Jesus told them that they had a “name” (or reputation) that indicated life, but that was a facade covering up the fact that they were actually dead! In order to understand what this means, we need to understand the Biblical definitions of “life” and “death”. Life is the ability to repair and grow. Death is the inability (or unwillingness) to repair and...


Revelation Unveiled Episode 10: The Spirit of Jezebel

10/25/2020 The Spirit of Jezebel is greatly impacting our culture. In general, a “Jezebel Spirit” is a perversion of feminine wiles and energy used to seduce people into destructive behavior. One prominent aspect of Jezebel in our culture is the severe corruption of “Feminism”. True feminism is the idea that men and women are equally valuable physically, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually. This type of feminism is righteous, just, and Biblical. However radical...


Revelation Unveiled – Episode 9: Letter to Thyatira

10/18/2020 Thyatira is the pagan church. In His letter to Thyatira, Jesus commends their good works but chastises them for letting a “Jezebel” lead them into idolatry. Prophetically, Thyatira coincides with the Roman Church of the middle ages. The Mystic paganism that began to seep into the Church during the era of Pergamos became official dogma. The Mystics became the leaders of the church and completely reshaped Christian doctrine into a warped and corrupt theocratic...


Revelation Unveiled – Episode 8: Letter to Pergamos

9/11/2020 Pergamos was the compromised church. When the Church compromises with the world, the world will always win. The Bible NEVER tells us to make terms with evil, or compromise with it in any way. We are called to be separate from the world – not a part of it. Yet this was the problem with the Church at Pergamos. In His epistle to that Church, Jesus tells them that they are following the path of Balaam, the Old Testament prophet who put his desire for wealth and...


Revelation Unveiled Ep. 7 – Letter to Smyrna

8/28/2020 Smyrna represents the persecuted church. Although they suffered greatly for the sake of Christ and lived in extreme poverty, Jesus told the Christians in Smyrna that they were spiritually rich! Why? Because when you suffer injustice for the sake of Jesus, His righteous and just nature demand that you receive rewards in proportion to your suffering. And if you don’t receive that justice on earth, then you have to get it in Heaven. The Church has suffered physical,...


Revelation Unveiled – Episode 6: Letter to Ephesus

8/21/2020 Ephesus is known as the "Loveless Church". While that title is not inaccurate, it doesn't tell the whole story. Jesus actually begins this "epistle" by commending Ephesus on their strong adherence to sound doctrine. He also expressed how pleased He was that they didn't allow false teachers and false doctrine into the Church. Unfortunately, in their zeal to keep their doctrine pure, the Church as Ephesus neglected to show each other the love of Christ, and to...


Revelation Unveiled – Episode 5: Seven Letters Intro

The Epistles of Jesus! We all know that the Apostles Paul, Peter, John, and others wrote epistles to churches and people in the New Testament, but most Christians fail to take note of the fact that there are seven New Testament epistles authored by Jesus Himself! These short but profound messages are known as The Seven Letters to Seven Churches in Revelation chapters 2 and 3. These letters are actually the most relevant part of the Book of Revelation to Christians! Each one of these densely...


Revelation Unveiled Ep. 4 – Revelation Chapter 1

7/17/2020 Revelation Chapter 1 sets the stage for the entire book. It lets you know who is the subject (Jesus), who the intended audience is (the Churches), and what the message will be (the end times). Revelation chapter 1 also gives the outline of the Book. John was told to write the things he HAS seen (the visions of Revelation chapter 1), the things which ARE (the 7 letters to 7 Churches), and the things which shall be “metatauta” or “after these things” (the future)...


Revelation Unveiled Ep 3: Millennium Perspectives

6/29/2020 What do you think about the Millennium? When does it happen? Where is Jesus during this time? Your FULL answer to those questions will greatly affect your view of the Book of Revelation! Biblically speaking, the Millennium is a period of time (often seen as being 1000 years long), where the promised Kingdom of God is on earth. Some people believe that Jesus will return to earth BEFORE the Millennium and establish the Kingdom Himself. Others believe that the...


Revelation Unveiled Ep 2: Man’s Perspective

6/19/2020 Human beings have been trying to figure out the deep complexities of the Book of Revelation since the day it was written. If you talk to 100 Bible scholars, you'll probably get 100 different interpretations of the events in Revelation. There are, however, three broad categories that most interpreters fall into While last week's episode keyed in on the Divine Perspective, this week, we will continue our introduction to the Book of Revelation by examining Man's...


Revelation Unveiled Ep 1: The Divine Perspective

6/13/2020 The Book of Revelation is one of the most amazing books in the Bible. It is NOT the book of "revelations". It is NOT the "Revelation of St John". It is the Revelation (singular) of Jesus Christ, which God GAVE to Him! It is God revealing Jesus! It is our opportunity to "eavesdrop" on a conversation between the eternal Father and Son! But how (and why) does God the Father reveal Jesus to Himself? What does that mean? Understanding the Divine Perspective...
