TWO MINUTE WITH TH£ BIBLE ■Y CORMIUUS *. STAM MIS. J MRIAN 8181 l SOCIITY I Jj CHICAGO. ILLINOIS 60AJJ f M "THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST" The last great book of the Bible opens with the words: "THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST," and from these words it derives its title: "THE REVELATION." In this book St. John deals largely with the return of Christ in glory to judge and reign. II Thes. 1:7,8 tells us that one day "THE LORD JESUS SHALL BE REVEALED FROM HEAVEN. . . in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that . . obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ." This is what the book of the Reve lation deals with. But this phraseology is also used in Paul's epistles, for in Gal. 1:11.12 he says: "I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of [by] me is not after man, for I neither received it of man. neither was I taught it. but by THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST." Surely this is not the same revelation of Jesus Christ" of which John wrote. St. Paul refers not to "the revelation of Jesus Christ" in glory, but to "the reve lation of Jesus Christ" m while He delays the judgment, not WATTS STREET BAPTIST CHURCH DAY CARE CENTER Providing full day care with half day nursory kin dergarten teaching program. for children ages 3-5 STARTING SEPT. 8 if Qualified pre-school teachers & aids if Stote licensed & federally approved. if Fully equipped facilities.

Mitchell Directing 5A His revelation to the world in per son. but His revelation to and through Paul the chief of sinners, i saved by grace. i In Verses 15,16 of Gal. 1. the apostle says: ". . . it pleased God ... TO REVEAL HIS SON IN ME." What a revelation of grace to a sin-cursed world. God saved Saul, His blaspheming enemy! He tells about it in I Tim. 1:13-16, where he says: "I was a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious . . . Howbeit. FOR THIS CAUSE I OBTAINED MERCY, THAT IN ME FIRST JESUS CHRIST MIGHT SHOW FORTH ALL LONGSUFFER ING, FOR A PATTERN TO THEM WHICH SHOULD HEREAFTER BE LIEVE ON HIM TO LIFE EVER LASTING." This is why Paul says: "... it pleased God ... TO REVEAL HIS SON IN ME." By saving the chief of sinners (as Paul calls himself in I Tim. 1:15) God would show us that HE is willing to save any sinner. "FOR WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED" (Rom. MWS)
