In the introduction to the course I attended some years back on the book of Revelation, I noticed this tongue-in-cheek definition by my lecturer Dr Paul Hawk: “REVELATION, n. A famous book in which St. John the Divine concealed all he knew. The revelation is done by commentators, who know nothing.” 

The experience of reading and understanding the book of Revelation recorded by John is indeed a challenging one. The book of Revelation begins with an introduction where John described his writing as a “revelation” (Rev 1:1) of God’s plan for the end time. 

(Rev 1:1)   “The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it know by sending his angel to his servant John.”

The other important fact to note is that it is a record of “everything he saw” (Rev 1:2). In Rev 1:11 and again in Rev 1:19, our Lord Jesus’ instruction to John was to “Write down on a scroll what you see”.

However, since the book of Revelation is a book on the predictions of the future, it might seem presumptuous to offer any kind of definitive outline. But as Ramsey Michaels pointed out, “Once we recognize that we are dealing simply with what John saw and not with the literal course of future events, we are more free to let the visions speak for themselves.”  The book is not written to be understood only by some biblical scholars, but also by everyone with the supernatural help of the Holy Spirit. In understanding what the book of Revelation is about, we could start by attempting to place ourselves in John’s place and trying to see the visions as he saw them. 

The book of Revelation is a book of visions; it is a book of “revelation” of God’s plan for the end time. Since it is a record of what John saw, we could attempt to place ourselves in John’s place and try to see the visions as he saw them.  Putting ourselves again in John’s position; the witness of the events that would happen to the Church and the things that would happen during the Tribulation must have filled him with holy fear and reverence. But after witnessing the glory of the new heaven and new earth, it must have filled him with joy that rendered him to conclude with the prayer, “Amen. Come Lord Jesus.” (Rev 22:20)

Reading through the Revelation again recently has filled me with excitement and awe. It is a book that laid out God’s strategic ‘battle plan’ for the last days, and a ‘prayer manual’ to guide the saints how to pray in the end times. When Jesus comes again, when the New Jerusalem descends to the earth with Him, the two realms – the natural realm and the supernatural realm become one. It is the ultimate consummation of God’s redemption plan and what those who love Jesus can look forward to at the time of His coming.

I recently read this startling statement from an author: “For many who are interested in the recovery of the spiritual, the last place they would look to find guidance in this quest would be the church.” I don’t think the author mean to put the church down; he has put across a point that cut right through the heart of the matter. I believe it is true that we find more religiosity in the church today than authentic relationship of care.

During the course of the last four years in TTC, I visited 10 churches as part of the Field Education programme, there seems to be some truth to this statement. There are a number of churches where I went in and sit in the congregation, and then left after the service without anyone noticing or talking to me. As a pastoral staff, I can recall there were days where I seem to be so ‘busy’ that I simply go through the motion with people instead of offering something that is relevant to them and meeting their needs.

Many people who come to the church would probably not bother with what I know, unless they know that I really genuinely care for them and love them with the love of Christ. I sense that there is a necessity for change – a change in thinking, a change in feeling, and a change in behavior. Indeed, it is only when people we care for know that we love them and praying for them, that there could be a good possibility that we could touch them.

I am convicted that caring for people is a challenging but rewarding task that requires the internal reality of our lives to match with the external actions. I also think that Jesus has given us the answer; Jesus has modeled for us what a man who is totally connected with God the Father and empowered by the Holy Spirit to understand the mystery of the human souls. The sinners, tax collectors, prostitutes and all the broken people all flock to Jesus because he just have this amazing ability to love and care for them.

When we begin to have the mind of Christ, when we start to know and experience the love of God, I believe that’s when we start to care for people for who they are, and not because they are one of our targets, or worst the potential victim of our evangelistic effort. A potential trophy that you go back to tell your friend about. There's something that happen when you just genuinely love and care for people.

Join in the Daniel Fast (8 to 15 Apr)

Dear Covenantors,

2012 is the year of Awakening. God is preparing the church for a great revival. And this great revival and awakening will happen when we start to fast and pray.

As part of the spiritual preparation for church camp, the Camp Committee will be embarking on a 7 day Daniel fast starting 8 April (after lunch) till 15 April, breaking fast at ACM lunch.

We would like ALL (Staff, Session leaders comprising of Elders & Deacons to BAG leaders,  CG leaders, Adults,  Youths & Young Adults & every member) to join us for the fast which is basically abstain from meats and other favourite delicacies. And each time when the craving comes, turn to Father God and talk to Him, read His Word or immerse in worshipping Him.

Fasting is feasting in the presence of God.

*Church Camp Team*

For those doing Daniel Fast for the 1st time, hear from two of them who have done it before.

Last year before going for our TMT trip, we were all asked to do Daniel fast for 1 week. I thought it was a good idea and that it would be easy for me, but I was wrong.

Having to eat no meat for all meals was really a challenge. The constant feeling of tiredness and hunger was evident. However, I told myself that I will go and talk to God each time the hunger kicks in. It was that simple but it wasn't as easy as it sounds.

The first 3 days were the hardest. But as I pressed on, the hunger slowly faded with each passing day. Slowly I could even hear Him better and felt more at peace about the trip. He told me stuff that I would be seeing and things that I was to do there.

 So although the 7 days weren't easy, I am really glad I did it as nothing beats being able to hear Him clearer!

In December 2011, I did the Daniel Fast for a week in preparation to the Thailand Mission Trip (TMT). Personally, when I started, I had a big problem with the fast as I love to eat meat and I don't eat vegetables at all. Since I was a kid, I never liked and eat any vegetables. So, during the period of the fast, it was literally rice, potato or egg or just instant noodles. Haha. However as the days passed, I eventually got used to it and even loved it (in a way). Haha J

The Daniel Fast is a good way of fasting as we enter into the spiritual discipline of prayer and fasting. It affects all three parts of us as we enter into a period of time for focused prayer and fasting. Mainly the body, the soul and the spirit. The body because our diets change and thus our metabolism changes accordingly as well. Most people actually become healthier from the fast. For the soul, we learn how to control our emotions such as cravings and anger as the soul may rebel against the dramatic change in our diet. Experiencing and winning this battle over the flesh is often one of the most powerful lessons of the Daniel Fast. Lastly, for the spirit, it strengthens as we want to put our spirit in charge of the other two. When our flesh is acting out with a craving, we take control of it with our spirit.

Hence, even during that short period of Daniel Fast, it helped me to deny "myself" and instead put my spirit in control over our flesh. When I plan or eat my meal, I was constantly reminded the definition of a fast is to deny food for a spiritual purpose.
