An Examination of the Theme of Discipleship in The Seven Churches of Revelation – Steve Roy

“Go and make disciples.” Our command is clear; our mission is given. But what exactly is a disciple and what does discipleship really mean? In An Examination of the Theme of Discipleship in the Seven Churches of Revelation, Dr. Steve Roy takes the reader to the book of Revelation and to the specific letters from Jesus Christ himself. These letters help the reader to discover dramatically important conclusions as to what discipleship is and what it means to be a disciple. Through each of the letters to the seven churches, Jesus follows a particular pattern of discipleship and applies it to the specific churches in western Asia Minor. These patterns and instructions are just as relevant for us today as they were when John the Revelator sent them. This book is written for the person who wants to take discipleship seriously and for the pastor who stands before his congregation weekly with the purpose of making disciples.

Faith: What it is, What it isn’t And Why it is important– Ed Pittman

During Ed’s study of the book of Daniel, there were four chapters that were different from the other chapters. Chapter 3 related to Meshach, Shadrach, and Abednego, and chapter 6 was about Daniel. In his study, it became clear that Daniel and his three friends were special in God’s eye. These four individuals, after being taken from Jerusalem to Babylon, were given special treatment from their captors. They were also miraculously saved from horrible deaths and, in the case of Daniel, elevated to a position of high authority in the Babylonian government. What was it about these four individuals that made them special to God? They weren’t royalty or heroes; they hadn’t won any battles. In fact, they were just teenagers when they were taken captive. What set them apart from the others was their willingness to defy the orders of the Babylonian rulers when those orders conflicted with their relationship with God.

As Ed continued his study of Daniel, he was continuously drawn back to these two chapters until he realized the chapters were not so much about Daniel and his friends, as it was about their relationship with and their faith in God. This raised a lot of questions for him. He wanted to know what the basis for their special relationship with God was. He wanted to know what made their faith special to God and what was it about their faith that was different from his faith. He wanted to know why God answered their prayers and seemed to not answer the prayers of so many people he knows, as well as many of his own. He also wondered why these chapters on faith were included in a book that was primarily a prophetic book.

Searching for answers to these questions, Ed quickly realized he didn’t know what God had to say about faith or why faith is important to Him. The next question was, if he didn’t know what God had to say about faith, what kind of faith did he have? Did he have the faith to accept Christ as his LORD and Savior? The answer was yes, but what else? Also, where does he go with his faith from here? And finally, how does he get the faith of Daniel and his friends?

These questions and more started Ed’s study of faith which ultimately led him to write this book.

Daniel and Revelation – Ed Pittman

In 1987, when Ed joined a new church, the pastor was teaching on the book of Revelation. Ed so enjoyed the teaching that he decided to read what others had to say about Revelation. He quickly learned that there were many different interpretations of Revelation and other books of the Bible that contained prophecy about the end times or latter days. He decided that he needed to do more reading and study of scripture, as well as books written by others, so he could come to his own understanding of what God was telling us about how He would bring things to an end. After much reading and prayer, his focus narrowed primarily to the books of Daniel and Revelation.

The book of Daniel is about Israel in the time before Christ. The prophecy in Daniel begins with the Babylonian kingdom and continues through the Roman kingdom in such detail and accuracy that many believe it was written much later and is more historical than prophetic. It also tells us about the later kingdoms but in a much broader sense and less detail.

The book of Revelation, written by John on the island of Patmos, tells us about the kingdoms that come after the Roman kingdom. Revelation tells us in great detail about Christ’s message to the seven churches and the seventieth week of Daniel’s prophecy of seventy weeks of years. This includes the breaking of the seven seals, the blowing of the seven trumpets, and the pouring out of the seven bowl judgments. Lastly it tells us the good news about the return of Christ and the establishment of His kingdom.
