Revelation 1:19





19 Write [grapho] the things which [hos] thou hast seen, [eido] and [kai] the things which [hos] are, [eisi] and [kai] the things which [hos] shall [mello] be [ginomai] hereafter [meta]; [tauta]    KJV-Interlinear



19 "Write therefore the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall take place after these things.    NASB



John concludes this chapter, with the command from Christ to write down three things, namely, all that he saw, the things present, and the things future.  So the past, present, and future are all tied up in the person of Christ.He is the focal point and the common thread which ties up history and holds all things together.


This first chapter gives us the priorities of life. God first, doctrine first, and the means of learning and possessing it and growing up spiritually. 


We are mere vessels of potential, lampstands.  A lampstand is useless unless it has oil, and God provides the oil, Bible doctrine.  And the oil is useless unless it provides light, or production, and our application of doctrine to our life provides the light.  God sparks the light.  God moves the oil through our vessel to feed the light.We as the container do nothing.The forces of God add the oil and move it toward the fire which provides the light.


The Church or the Church Age, is the reference to the ‘things present.’


The ‘things future’ refers to the events that will occur after our present era or dispensation.


John is commanded to write.  Why?


So we will have the written Word, to study and therefore to learn.One can only learn if ones studies, and one can only study if the information is written down.


Once this Book of Revelation was completed, the divine revelation from God stopped.


We have in our possession all that we need, in the form of the written Bible, to prepare us for advancement in our spiritual life, and to know and understand how history has been defined and designed by God.


Just as this universe had a designer, and created laws to rule its operation, so too, history has been pre-defined by God, complete with the rules of its function.


Nothing in life happens by accident.  Nothing in history happens by accident.


For some, these things will be fascinating or even entertaining.They do not have to live them.


For some, these things will be disturbing or even startling, as life unfolds with trends or events, that will indicate the nearness of the end times.  And those events will point to an all time spiritual low, as apostasy grows throughout the world, and Christianity declines.


But for some, these things will be terrifying beyond the imaginable, because they will actually have to live through them.
