Jesus is Surely Coming



Louie Giglio kicks off a collection of talks in the book of Revelation, All Consuming Fire. As we study Revelation 1, we see the main takeaway of this book written by John the Apostle: Jesus Christ is victorious and is surely coming.

Key Takeaway

The book of Revelation unveils the risen Christ and shows us what must soon come to pass.

This is perhaps the most critical letter you have ever received.

Read all of Revelation 1.

An angel was sent to the apostle John on the island of Patmos to deliver him a revelation. What he saw was unlike anything he had seen before. We are getting a glimpse of what’s happening in the throne room of the Almighty and in the end of the age.

The book of Revelation unveils the risen Christ and shows us what must soon come to pass.

When we read Revelation, it's important to note that the word "like" is used often. This is because John was describing something he had never seen or experienced and was trying his best to explain this revelation in language we could understand.

Verse 3 of Revelation reads, "Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near."

We aren't doing a Bible study on the Revelation; we want the Revelation to study us.

The key verse of Revelation is verse 7.

“Look, he is coming with the clouds,”

  and “every eye will see him,

even those who pierced him”;

  and all peoples on earth “will mourn because of him.”

So shall it be! Amen.

It's not about when but who is coming.

John was believed to be 95/96 when he received this revelation, and Jesus died when John was in his mid-20s. It had been 60+ years, yet John was still showing up. He didn't give up on God because He saw him, and when he received this revelation and saw Him again (Revelation 1:7), the only thing he could think to do was lay prostrate.

There are two big ideas we want to focus on:

  1. Jesus is triumphant. Right now. Yesterday. Tomorrow. He has won even in a darkened world. There are many signs of the end, but He rises above all of them and is more brilliant than anything we have ever experienced (Revelation 1:12-16).
  2. Jesus is near and coming soon. Are you looking? I heard, I looked, I saw. Are you ready? Refined (Hebrews 12:25-29). Are you confident? It’s going to get darker before it gets lighter. Weeping may last. Will you stay faithful? “In the Spirit” today, tomorrow?

Father, open our eyes to see glimpses of the revelation of the risen Jesus.


"Don't you think in the darkness of the coming days that Jesus is any less brilliant than He is right now."
