INTRO: Soon we will be back in Hebrews. It is a somewhat difficult book to preach and so I take time for other messages in between chapters. Our subject this morning comes from Revelation 5 verse 12. Let me introduce that verse by giving the context. The book of Revelation gives us an outline of the book in 1:19. It says:
19 "Write the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which will take place after this.
The things John had seen are the things of chapter 1. The things which are, and still are; are the things of chapters 2-3. The things which shall take place after the things that are, are the things of chapters 4-22.
Now, in the things that are, we have the first section of chapters 2-3. It is the Church age pictured by seven churches. We have gone through those chapters in the past and they are available online at sermonaudio.com/mecl. Now in chapters 4-5 John is caught up into heaven. It is a rapture, if you like.
