PROPHECY BOOTCAMP: “The Final Victory” (Part 3) from Dr. Ed Hindson’s book “Revelation: Unlocking the Future”.
When John looked up, he saw the Savior looking down. Jesus said, “I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore.” Then he added the most important statement of all: “And I have the keys of death and Hades.” Jesus had already triumphed over the forces of Satan in His crucifixion and resurrection. He had already descended into hell, announced Satan’s doom, “stolen the keys,” and risen victorious.
Now the Lord had come for His beleaguered servant, His beloved disciple, and His dear friend. He was going to unlock the mystery of the future and unveil the sequence of events that would lead to Armageddon and the End Times.
He commanded John to “write” those things which:
1. “You have seen” (past)
2. “Things which are” (present)
3. “Things which shall take place after these things” (future)
Many have used that simple threefold designation to outline the entire book: past (chapter 1), present (chapters 2 and 3), and future (chapters 4 through 22). Chapter 1 closes by uniting each of these elements. The Savior who died and rose again in the past is still alive and moving in His Church in the present and will come again in the future. He has already triumphed, and so shall we!
