Tour > Seven Churches of Revelation - 10 days

About the tour in general

The name of the author of the letters written to seven churches is stated as John (Rev.1:1). He begins by saying that God sent the visions he is going to relate to His Servant John to the seven Churches in Asia.(Rev.1:4). So John writes this letter to the seven churches. The Seven Churches are all in the West of Turkey. The language of the book is not easy to understand. Yet this book revelation ‘’Tel us what John had seen in a vision, about God’s message and about what Jesus Christ had said and done. ’’Revelation 1:2. God will bless everyone who reads this prophecy to others, and he will bless everyone who hears and obeys it. That is why John writes Seven Letters to the Seven Churches in Asia minor so that they can read the message and obey it and tell it to others. Because the Christians of John’s time accepted Christ as their King they suffered from the Roman rulers. Even John the writer of revelation was imprisoned on Patmos Island where the Roman officers held people who refused to worship the Emperor. So John the writer of this book preached God’s message and Spoke about Jesus’ Word and Work. Therefore he was in prison on Patmos Island. There he saw the vision about God’s message and about what Jesus Christ had said and done (Rev.1:1). The one who was speaking to John was the Son of Man (Jesus Christ). Christ explains to John the writer of the Seven Letters to the Seven Churches: he writes things down as he hears them from Jesus. Christ explains, The seven stars which are the angels of the Seven Churches; and the lamb/stands are the angels of the seven churches’’ (Rev.1:20). ‘It was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, Saying, ‘I Am Alfa and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send in unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea’’. Revelation 1:10-11
