I was invited to speak at a Book of Daniel Bible Study at our church tonight. You thought Revelation was intimidating, try being the only guy in the room of all woman :)

I shared with them how to identify what is really important in Apocalyptic Literature (like Revelation and the second half of Daniel). Three points:

  1. Focus on what is CLEAR. Don't get lost in the details. What we need to know God is big enought to make clear. Center first of all on what is CLEAR.
  2. Then focus on what is CONSISTENT. When God says something repeatedly in the Bible we can know this is important and substantial.
  3. Focus on what COUNTS. By that I mean that which matters. Spend your time on those things that will change the way you think, act, and feel. God's Word is not suppose to just inform. It should transform.
