Creekside Estates Bible Study
Worship, Bible Study and Prayer
I am blessed and honored to lead a weekly Bible study on Monday morning at Creekside Estates, Vancouver, WA.
The people who come include both residents in our community
and some who live outside the community and are members of many different Christian congregations.
We begin at 10:00am and close about 11:45. Our time includes with worship, Bible study and prayer.
I have been posting the audio of our latest study of the book of Revelation and I was asked to post
the worship time as well. The class gets to pick the songs they want to sing.
We are blessed to be able to worship and praise together. I am placing the link to the music on the day of the study below.
A Study of Revelation
Over a year ago we began our studies of the books of the Bible in Chronological order as arranged in "The Narrated Bible" and "The Daily Bible".
We always begin with worship songs (chosen by the class).
After completing our verse by verse study of the other books of the New Testament we
have come to the book of Revelation and are excited to enter into a verse by verse study of it.
I am offering here an audio recording of our study. These recordings are of a class of 15 to 20 people and the audio is a challenge.
For that reason some of the questions and comments are difficult to understand and others have been removed.
All are welcome to listen and your feedback is welcome. I have also posted the PDF versions of notes given to the class.
I recommend to all who are studying the book of "The Revelation of Jesus Christ" that you read the "Olivet Discourse"
which is a message of Jesus with His disciples while here on earth. In this teaching Jesus talks about His second coming
and provides clarity for what He is revealing in the book of Revelation as He interacts with John for the Church.
Read Matthew 24 & 25; Mark 13; Luke 21
in preparation for what the Lord will be revealing in the book of Revelation.
