Concluding thoughts from my book, “Revelation, For Such A Time As This” regarding the Seven Churches of Asia Minor.
Although these seven letters were written directly to the churches of John’s day, they speak to the entire church age, also called the “Age of Grace.” By way of these seven letters, Jesus defines for us the challenges and triumphs the church will go through in two thousand plus years of church history. In every case, He directs His church to stay on track, to keep doing what is right, and correct, through repentance, those things that are destructive to the Body of Christ! But, there is a deeper, more personal application of these letters. I believe that the letters define what every believer will face in their lifetimes. As believers, Jesus comes along side of each of us to “captain” our lives! He fully understands that each of us will face challenges and temptations along the way. His heart for us is that we hold tightly to what we know is right, and when we fall, repent and move forward! It will take time for Jesus to bring about a perfect world in a new heaven. We can know by His promises that He intends to accomplish this. John 14:1-4. We must do all that we can to persevere till the end! I also believe that Jesus is speaking to all unbelievers through these letters. Offering Himself as a sacrifice, holy and true, for their salvation. It is our responsibility as believers to walk out the “Great Commission” (Matthew 28:18-19) as each of us have been called to do! Jesus has entrusted believers with an incredible stewardship, the care of His children, both lost and found!

My new book, Revelation, For Such A Time As This, is a verse by verse commentary on the book of Revelation. The following Forward was written by my very good friend and mentor, Pastor Royal Blue.
We live in such important days. People everywhere are asking, “What does the future hold?”
Surely, the best place to go for the answers to that question is the Book of Revelation.
Pastor David Honey has done an excellent job in giving us great insight into Revelation on a verse by verse study in his book: “REVELATION – For Such A Time As This.”
Pastor Honey’s method of presenting insights in the book of Revelation makes this study easy to understand.
Pastor Honey has had a very unique ministry for many years, as he has worked with people who have been rescued and encouraged by his spirit inspired ministry.
Not only as a Chaplain of a large jail ministry, but also by his loving leadership in a number of areas at the Good News Rescue Mission in Redding, California. In addition, Pastor Honey serves as Assistant Pastor at a church in Anderson, California.
He has spoken in a multitude of churches, and at many special community group gatherings.
I have known Pastor Honey for over 25 years. I have known him to be a man who loves the Lord, and loves people.
His desire for you as you read this book is that you might come to trust Jesus as your Savior.
If you are a Christian he would want you to be drawn closer to Jesus, and choose daily to redeem the time left, for God’s glory, while we are still on earth, before Jesus comes to rapture the believers.
