This fall our women’s Bible study will be reading the book of Revelation. The study book we are using is titled Behold, Jesus Is Coming. Revelation is an intense prophetic book. This prophetic book can be intimidating, but the time is right to dig in.
The Bible is the story of humankind, the people of the world. It chronicles good and evil times, faith and rebellion, sin and repentance. The prophetic books help us to recognize God at work.
The first verse of Revelation invites us to take notice of events taking place.
The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants the things that must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John. Revelation 1:1
In this verse I noticed that the word servant comes from the Greek work duolos. Duolos can be translated as servant, slave or attendant that is devoted to another to the disregard of one’s own interest. In the current time doula refers to an attendant who is with a woman throughout labor and birth.
The servant has total focus on the one he serves. May we have complete focus on Jesus as we navigate the difficult times ahead. I am looking forward to this study!
