More on Imminency in the first three chapters of Revelation June 18, 2007

Posted by roberttalley in Eschatology, Imminency, Revelation of Jesus Christ, Seven Churches of Revelation.

Because of computer problems, I have updated the posts on the churches at Sardis and Philadelphia with my answers rather than posting a new post. Saved me a bit of typing to do it that way.



We also talked more about imminency on which I posted back in May when I first began this blog. https://roberttalley.wordpress.com/2007/05/09/follow-up-on-last-sunday-evenings-discussion-of-imminency/

There are two verses in the messages to the seven churches that may be referring to the Tribulation period:  2:22 and 3:10. Revelation 2:22 (compared with 7:14) and Revelation 17-19 seem to describe the same or a similar event. Revelation 3:10 seems to describe the ebvents in 14-19. How do we understand the warning to Thyratira and the promise to Philadelphia? If they apply just to the churches, when is the time that the wrath of God was over the nations of the whole earth? If they apply just to the future what purpose did it serve to tell the churches what was to come on them? Understanding imminency correctly helps us to understand the passages as the churches understood them and as they will ultimately be fulfilled.

Remember, imminency refers to all the end time events surrounding Christ’s coming and not just to the Rapture or the Second Coming of Christ described in Revelation 19.
