    The end-time chronology of the Book of Revelation is not a strict linear account as is often viewed from the Hellenistic Mind-set. Through a Hebrew narrative of spiraling pictures, Revelation gives an overview of the Apocalypse followed by specific details which unveil the future of the nation of Israel, unbelievers and the body of Messiah. Laodicea (justice of the people), a town in the Roman province of Asia situated in the valley of the Maeander, on a small river called the Lycus, with Colossae and Hierapolis a few miles distant to the , or rather rebuilt, by one of the Seleucid monarchs, and named in honor of his wife, Laodicea became under the Roman government a place of some importance.

    1 Much of what follows is adapted from: T. K. Abbott, A Critical and Exegetical Commentary on the Epistles to the Ephesians and to the Colossians, ICC, pp. xivii-lx1v; F. F. Bruce, “Colossian Problems Part 3: The Colossian Heresy”: Bibliotheca Sacra (): ; Carson, Herbert M. The Epistles of Paul to the Colossians and e New Testament .   You’ve never seen the Book of Revelation until you’ve been there—or the Book of Acts, or Paul’s and John’s and Peter’s letters. Next April , we’ll visit all Seven Churches—Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea—and Colossae, Miletus, Hieropolis, Troas and Troy. Then we go to Greece.

      Where is the Cross found in the Book of Revelation? Novem Novem by Ian Paul Any discussion of ‘the cross’ in the Book of Revelation immediately faces a substantial challenge: in contrast with almost every other book in the New Testament, it is barely mentioned at all overtly. From Daniel to Revelation. The city of Colossae is not mentioned in the Book of Acts. All our Biblical information about the church there comes from this letter and a few allusions in the letter to Philemon. The Father is mentioned as the active Force of redemption.

Redemption is my favorite book so far in the Revelation Series by Randi Cooley Wilson. I loved every single aspect of it: the romance, the action, and the new twists.

Eve continued to grow on me in this novel. I really liked her courage and character growth. She is far from the naive girl I met in Revelation.

She is so sweet and spunky/5. Message to Laodicea —Revelation The Revelation of Christ (Revelation ) >Seven Churches >Seventh Message, Laodicea. We conclude our study of the seven messages to the churches of Asia recorded in Revelation The final message is addressed to Laodicea, the lukewarm church (Revelation ).

Remember that on a separate page there are common. Verse 2 (4) The witness of the visions. "Who bare record of the word of God" The word of God, to which John was to be the witness, was the message of the revelation itself, the word which God gave unto Jesus Christ (verse 1) at this time and in this apocalypse, not the word of God which had already been preached by the other apostles or that which was in the general.

But one person’s redemption becomes another’s enslavement if the latter was living in exile as if already redeemed. In fact, as we will discuss next week, b”H, it is the perspective that living a dream is exile which allows one to climb the spiritual ladder to higher levels of revelation.

Doing so is the true source of lasting redemption. Revelation 5 portrays the story of redemption as the one who is worthy to open the book is worshipped because that one has redeemed creation from the powers of evil that enslave it.

In essence we move from creation to redemption, from the sovereign enthroned one who invests another with redemptive authority, honor and power.

But Colossae’s importance as a business center diminished significantly around BC, when the neighboring city of Laodicea was founded as an active and commercially aggressive competitor.

The two towns, along with neighboring Hierapolis, were destroyed by earthquakes in AD 17 (in the reign of Tiberius) and again in 60 (in the reign of Nero).

The Epistle of Paul to the Colossians, (or simply Colossians), is the twelfth book of the New was written, according to the text, by Paul the Apostle and Timothy to the Church in Colossae, a small Phrygian city near Laodicea and approximately miles ( km) from Ephesus in Asia Minor.

Scholars have increasingly questioned Paul's authorship and. So the lesson of the book of Revelation, that the promise of Matthew that the church will prevail, that the church is the meaning of history ultimately — that lesson of the book of Revelation is something that will be increasingly relevant to a church that sees itself marginalized and pushed to the outskirts of society.
