Episode: “Vision of Heaven”
Chapters 3, 4, and 5 reveal a rare bright spot in Revelation. The message to the seven churches also includes Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea. A peek behind the veil gives a glimpse of God’s throne and Heaven with singing of praises to the Lamb.
Series: “Revelation: Unveiling the Visions”
The last book of the Bible is filled with veiled visions that look toward the ragged edge of human history. Dr. Jeffrey Seif walks us through each of the 22 chapters which include glorious visions and angelic visitations along with darkness and judgment. Amidst the turbulence of trying times, this series encourages you to release your fear of the future and focus on God’s plan of salvation and ultimate restoration. These eight programs also include insights from David and Kirsten Hart and music by Zola Levitt.

  • 00:03 David Hart: Welcome to "Our Jewish Roots" with insightful
  • 00:07 Bible teaching by Dr. Jeffrey Seif.
  • 00:10 ♪♪♪
  • 00:29 David: Thank you for joining us today, I am David Hart.
  • 00:32 Kirsten Hart: I'm Kirsten Hart.
  • 00:33 Jeffrey Seif: I am Jeffrey Seif and we are in some interesting
  • 00:36 stuff today, yes, as we look in Revelation?
  • 00:38 Kirsten: Right, so you have more messages to the churches and
  • 00:41 then we have this vision of heaven.
  • 00:44 Love reading that.
  • 00:46 Jeffrey: The message of the church is kind of like a rap on
  • 00:48 the knuckles, you know?
  • 00:50 A little lukewarm, you know, and that's not so good.
  • 00:52 But then we pivot to a much happier scene.
  • 00:56 David: Good, we hope you have your Bible ready.
  • 00:58 Open it to chapter 3 of Revelation.
  • 01:01 Let's go there now.
  • 01:04 ♪♪♪
  • 01:08 Jeffrey: Nicole Carroll, editor in chief, "USA Today," wrote an
  • 01:11 article here, "Facts Fight Fear, and We're Here to Help."
  • 01:17 Well, I think she's right.
  • 01:19 I think faith fights fear as well and we're here to help.
  • 01:22 And never mind what she wrote for the moment, I'm gonna look
  • 01:25 and see what's in God's Word but before we look at the Word, I
  • 01:27 wanna back up and look at the world.
  • 01:30 By the way, get a hold of the Word by the way, we're in
  • 01:32 Revelation chapter 3.
  • 01:34 It's where I'm picking up.
  • 01:36 But before we get here, let's go back here.
  • 01:38 And by back here, I mention the first century world.
  • 01:41 This is the Mediterranean.
  • 01:44 The Latins called it Mare Nostrum, Our Sea.
  • 01:46 Judea was one of their eastern provinces.
  • 01:50 There's Jerusalem.
  • 01:52 So much of the Bible, of course, takes place over here but we're
  • 01:54 away from here right now.
  • 01:57 We're looking at letters that were written over here,
  • 01:59 the revelation.
  • 02:01 We're looking about 95 AD.
  • 02:04 There's churches here, congregations on the western
  • 02:07 edge of Asia Minor yesterday, Turkey today.
  • 02:13 We're here, Ephesus.
  • 02:15 It's a major world cities, and there's a belt of a number of
  • 02:19 major cities just to the east of it.
  • 02:21 And that's where our story is today.
  • 02:25 'Course, the gospel expands outward beyond Judea.
  • 02:28 Paul went through Cyprus and then into the heartland of Asia
  • 02:33 Minor on his first journey.
  • 02:35 Overland, he went through this on his second journey.
  • 02:37 Ephesus was a headquarters.
  • 02:40 He crossed the Adriatic Sea, went into Philippi and Greece
  • 02:46 and then pushed, eventually, all the way to Italy but that's
  • 02:50 far away.
  • 02:52 We're here now and there's a Word of the Lord given to
  • 02:54 congregations here.
  • 02:57 In chapter 3 there is a message given to the congregations
  • 03:00 in Sardis.
  • 03:02 Again, we're looking at a number of cities here, and they're
  • 03:05 exhorted, they're told, "Wake up, and strengthen
  • 03:09 what remains."
  • 03:12 The whole idea of falling asleep is very common in--if you look
  • 03:17 in the New Testament there's this
  • 03:19 eschatological watchfulness.
  • 03:22 People fall asleep.
  • 03:24 The disciples did as well, you might recall; in Gethsemane,
  • 03:28 they were woken by Yeshua's arrest.
  • 03:31 Things just kind of drag on and people get dreary.
  • 03:34 They get weary.
  • 03:36 And he says, "Wake up," and in verse 3, "Remember what you have
  • 03:41 received and heard," the exhortation to this watchfulness
  • 03:45 at the end of days to not let yourself slumber.
  • 03:50 There's a message given to another congregation here to the
  • 03:54 east of Ephesus in Philadelphia.
  • 03:57 He says in verse 8, "I know your deeds."
  • 04:00 He says in verse 9, "There are these pretenders among you,
  • 04:04 these fakes, individuals who say they are Jewish but are not."
  • 04:09 By the way, parenthetically, there's a lot of stuff that
  • 04:12 parades around in the name of Jewish perspective on biblical
  • 04:16 literature that's not particularly authentic, not
  • 04:18 very kosher.
  • 04:21 But there are people here that are pretending to be part of the
  • 04:23 community and the congregation, the early church is so Jewish,
  • 04:26 he just says, you know, "They're pretending to be Jews like you."
  • 04:29 There's hardly any Jews in the church today, tragically.
  • 04:32 That's why I love this program, "Our Jewish Roots," I really do
  • 04:35 to help stimulate an appreciation for things Jewish.
  • 04:38 He says to them in verse 10, he exhorts them that they've kept
  • 04:42 his word about patient endurance, subsequent to which
  • 04:47 he says, "I am coming soon."
  • 04:51 Friends, hear me on this.
  • 04:54 We're gonna get to interpreting fascinating passages in
  • 04:56 reasonably short order but there's an exhortation here to
  • 05:00 be patient and to endure.
  • 05:05 He speaks about a coming New Jerusalem before we get out of
  • 05:08 verse 13 and I should mention that by the time of the writing
  • 05:12 here, Jerusalem was destroyed.
  • 05:15 The temple was destroyed.
  • 05:17 He sees a new Jerusalem coming.
  • 05:19 That's a good news and, by the way, we live in a world today
  • 05:21 where we see Jerusalem arising, don't we?
  • 05:23 That's another story.
  • 05:26 To Laodicea now, in verse 14, he says, "You're lukewarm.
  • 05:29 Would that you were either cold or hot," he says, "but I'm gonna
  • 05:34 spew you out of my mouth," in verse 16.
  • 05:37 By the way, interestingly, Laodicea was known for its
  • 05:40 lukewarm waters.
  • 05:42 And by the way, Laodicea in antiquity was also known for the
  • 05:47 manufacture of eye ointment.
  • 05:50 I mention that because he says, "I counsel you to get salve to
  • 05:54 anoint your eyes," in verse 18.
  • 05:57 He's kind of playing off where they are at the moment.
  • 05:59 When we look in chapters 2 and 3 of Revelation therein, the Lord
  • 06:05 is exhorting believers.
  • 06:08 The word to them is to endure patiently.
  • 06:11 You know, we can get stressed out in life and to keep our
  • 06:14 faith up, to not give in to temptation,
  • 06:18 to not give in to despair, disorientation, decay.
  • 06:22 It can come upon us.
  • 06:25 We'll see, speaking of coming upon, there's seasons of global
  • 06:29 upheaval, there's unrest.
  • 06:31 The revelation will go on to look at wars and rumors of wars
  • 06:36 and ravages in human experience but the word here at the outset
  • 06:41 on the front end of it all is to carry on, to tarry on, God is
  • 06:46 with us, able to deliver us.
  • 06:49 Well, we're gonna look at the world at the ragged edge of time
  • 06:52 as we consider the book of Revelation and we look at
  • 06:55 unveiling the mysteries therein.
  • 07:00 ♪♪♪
  • 07:04 Jeffrey: In chapter 5, the cat's gonna get out of the
  • 07:07 bag in Revelation and it's gonna take a while to get him back in.
  • 07:10 We'll get at the end of the book for that but we're in chapter 4
  • 07:13 now and it's this in between moment.
  • 07:16 I mention that because in chapters 2 and 3, there's
  • 07:20 messages to believers, moral exhortations to keep the faith,
  • 07:24 et cetera.
  • 07:26 In chapter 4, there's this wonderful experience where the
  • 07:29 author is beckoned to go up.
  • 07:34 In chapter 4, verse 1: "The--a door was standing open
  • 07:37 in heaven.
  • 07:39 And there's a voice, 'Come up here, and I will show you what
  • 07:43 must take place after these things.'"
  • 07:46 Things are gonna be described in short order.
  • 07:51 But he's beckoned to come up and, in effect, experience
  • 07:54 something of a worship service on steroids.
  • 07:59 I mention that because we're told in verse 2: "Immediately I
  • 08:03 was in the Ruach," in the Spirit, "and behold, a throne
  • 08:07 was standing in heaven, and One seated on the throne."
  • 08:12 And then around the throne there are individuals worshiping,
  • 08:15 et cetera.
  • 08:17 And the author here gets quite an experience.
  • 08:21 All that said, I wanna, here at the outset of this segment,
  • 08:24 underscore the importance of experience.
  • 08:28 In religion, that can be marginalized, unfortunately, in
  • 08:33 some circles.
  • 08:36 But, you know, I believe that people need to have something
  • 08:38 that's impactful, something that's painted on their
  • 08:41 imagination and I mention that because here there's a bad
  • 08:46 moon rising.
  • 08:49 But on the front end of that, there's a vision of God which
  • 08:51 gives a kind of encouragement and a strengthening to bear up
  • 08:54 with the troubles of the day.
  • 08:57 And, oh goodness, we are going to be seeing troubles of the day
  • 09:00 in short order.
  • 09:02 But first, there is this experience likened to Isaiah in
  • 09:05 chapter 6, where the Lord beckons him up and he has
  • 09:09 a vision.
  • 09:11 You know, I saw the Lord and, you know, holy, holy, holy.
  • 09:16 Kadosh, kadosh, kadosh, Adonai-Tzva'ot.
  • 09:19 Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty.
  • 09:22 There's only one vision in Isaiah the prophet.
  • 09:26 He was a writing prophet.
  • 09:28 These visions are all over here but we're told here that there's
  • 09:32 various visions, verses 6 and 7, there are these creatures that
  • 09:38 emerge, a lion, an ox, a face like a man, an eagle, and when
  • 09:43 we get in the book of Ezekiel and in the books of Daniel as
  • 09:48 well, we see this same kind of imagery, fascinating,
  • 09:52 shocking, scary.
  • 09:54 There are these living creatures in verse 8 and they cant:
  • 10:00 "Kadosh, kadosh, kadosh, Adonai-Tzva'ot.
  • 10:03 Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts, who was and is and who is
  • 10:09 to come."
  • 10:12 We're told in verse 9 that these living creatures "would give
  • 10:16 glory and honor and thanks to the One seated on the throne."
  • 10:20 We see this in Ezekiel as well.
  • 10:22 There's the merkabhah, the chariot.
  • 10:25 There's this picture of God in the heavens, swirling around.
  • 10:29 People think flying saucers on occasion,
  • 10:32 fascinating imagery.
  • 10:34 And here, this image is resurrected in Revelation, a
  • 10:37 powerful image of God who's seated on the throne and
  • 10:42 individuals, in verse 10, are worshiping him.
  • 10:46 And I should say, by the way, that we do that now.
  • 10:50 Those who have had an experience with the Lord, even amidst the
  • 10:54 turbulence of trying times, we turn and we put our eyes on him.
  • 11:01 It says it explicitly in the literature that they "worship
  • 11:06 him who lives forever."
  • 11:09 It's an executive decision and I hope that you are minded to do
  • 11:14 that as well and they cant in verse 11 here: "Worthy are you,
  • 11:18 O Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you
  • 11:22 created all things; because of your will they existed and were
  • 11:28 created."
  • 11:30 So in this segment there's this powerful worshipful image that
  • 11:34 the eyes are turned toward the Lord.
  • 11:38 He's on the throne.
  • 11:40 It's not gonna look like it in short order 'cause the world's
  • 11:42 gonna come unglued.
  • 11:45 I wanna get to chapter 6 and that which follows in
  • 11:48 short order.
  • 11:50 We're gonna see apocalyptic vision, we're gonna see plague
  • 11:53 and turmoil unleashed on the earth.
  • 11:55 But we'll get to that in the next segment.
  • 11:58 Here again, let me underscore the importance of having a
  • 12:01 relationship with the Lord, walking with the Lord, having a
  • 12:04 worship experience with the Lord.
  • 12:08 Turn your eyes upon him.
  • 12:12 And he's got answers and he has help that will meet us and greet
  • 12:16 us, help as we need it, as we find ourselves amidst turbulent
  • 12:21 times and those times get rocky.
  • 12:24 We're gonna look at that as we go in "Revelation, The Unveiling
  • 12:28 of the Mysteries."

  • 12:37 Jeffrey: Our Creator chose certain places on the planet to
  • 12:40 reveal himself and his message of redemption to us.
  • 12:44 Mount Sinai, Moriah, Olives, the Mount of Beatitudes, as well as
  • 12:49 various seas, rivers, and deserts.
  • 12:52 These were the places.
  • 12:54 Some are now only ruins, yet they continue to tell of the
  • 12:57 Lord's faithfulness and love.
  • 13:01 These sacred backdrops have been beautifully captured in our
  • 13:04 resource this week, the book, "Heaven and Earth: Landmarks of

  • 14:54 ♪♪♪
  • 14:58 Jeffrey: Well, we're still in heaven, that's the good news.
  • 15:01 Hell's gonna break loose but we'll do that next week in the
  • 15:02 next program.
  • 15:04 In the 5th chapter which falls on the heels of the 4th, it goes
  • 15:08 before the 6th as you might well imagine.
  • 15:10 Here we are, we're in heaven and this author sees in verse 1 a
  • 15:13 scroll and the question is who can open this?
  • 15:19 Who can give voice to it?
  • 15:21 Who can explain it?
  • 15:23 And we're told in verse 5, one of the elders says,
  • 15:26 "Stop weeping!"
  • 15:28 We have someone that can open this up.
  • 15:30 "Behold, the--"
  • 15:32 And this is biblical Jewish language.
  • 15:35 "Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has
  • 15:40 triumphed--he is worthy to open the scroll."
  • 15:44 Jesus is described in Jewish terms, that is associated with
  • 15:50 the tribe of Judah, the Lion, the strong rulership scepter
  • 15:54 going back to Genesis.
  • 15:56 He is the root of David, he's descended from David.
  • 16:00 You have that in Matthew chapter 1, verse 1.
  • 16:03 The book of the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah, Son of David,
  • 16:08 Son of Abraham, and you look at the genealogical record.
  • 16:11 Jesus here is associated with Jewish stock.
  • 16:16 This is the answer for the world's problems.
  • 16:20 Now, we're gonna see in a moment how the world rages against
  • 16:22 all that.
  • 16:24 And in conjunction with alighting upon that, if you'll
  • 16:28 permit me to extol the virtues of a program like this.
  • 16:33 We don't just proclaim Jewish--Jesus, excuse me.
  • 16:37 We don't just proclaim Jesus, but we proclaim Jesus with
  • 16:41 Jewish eyes, judging that to be important.
  • 16:45 And if you find value in that, please share some value to help
  • 16:48 us tell that story.
  • 16:51 Here, Yeshua is noted as the answer to the quandary noted in
  • 16:57 the literature and I like the Jewish background.
  • 17:00 He, as well, as you read on, he is there noted as "a Lamb
  • 17:05 standing, as having been slain."
  • 17:10 Now, a Lamb that's slain for the world, by the way, is a very
  • 17:14 strong Jewish image.
  • 17:16 It harks to the temple proper where animals were sacrificed
  • 17:19 and to the Passover as well.
  • 17:23 The answer is the Lamb was slain and, by virtue of the Lamb being
  • 17:28 slain in Exodus, they were extricated from misery
  • 17:31 from slavery.
  • 17:34 I mention that, if you look at the similarities in Revelation
  • 17:37 and we're gonna do it, we're gonna get into turbulent waters
  • 17:39 in a moment.
  • 17:41 These plagues that are unleashed upon the earth, and these are
  • 17:44 preludes to the great deliverance.
  • 17:47 It's like that in the Exodus too.
  • 17:48 Recall there were plagues that were unleashed upon
  • 17:50 the Egyptians.
  • 17:52 And then finally, the Lamb came that was slain and this was
  • 17:56 adjudged to be salvific.
  • 17:58 It's the same imagery here.
  • 18:00 That would have not have been lost to those Jewish readers of
  • 18:03 the story.
  • 18:05 And people are gathered around worshiping this Lamb in verse 9,
  • 18:09 singing a new song: "You are worthy to take the scroll.
  • 18:13 You were slain, by your blood you redeemed for God those from
  • 18:18 every tribe and tongue and people and nation."
  • 18:22 See, this is the Passover story on steroids.
  • 18:25 The Lamb in the Passover redeemed the Jews.
  • 18:28 Here, this land redeems people from every tribe and tongue and
  • 18:34 people and nation.
  • 18:37 It's a fascinating story and I hope that you count yourself
  • 18:39 among the redeemed.
  • 18:42 He says in verse 11, "I looked and heard many angels around the
  • 18:46 throne and elders and they were chanting," in verse 12, "Worthy
  • 18:51 is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and riches and
  • 18:58 wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing."
  • 19:05 Now, there are many people that think it's a waste of time to
  • 19:09 worship the Lord.
  • 19:11 And it's a--certainly is a waste of resource to invest in the
  • 19:14 things of the Lord.
  • 19:16 But there are people who are energized even in a difficult
  • 19:19 world by a heavenly vision by virtue of their being a people
  • 19:23 of God and they say, "Worthy is the Lamb to receive power
  • 19:29 and riches."
  • 19:31 That is to say that he's worthy of it.
  • 19:34 And so it is, we invest in expanding the kingdom with
  • 19:38 financial wherewithal.
  • 19:41 Having said that, let me encourage you please to help us
  • 19:44 to tell our story as we look at the good news through the eyes
  • 19:48 of the Jews.
  • 19:50 Oh, the good news is good but the bad news is gonna get bad.
  • 19:53 By the time we get to chapter 6 and we are right there in short
  • 19:57 order next week where there's going to be turbulence in a big
  • 20:00 way and we're gonna explore the turbulence, the rocky road of
  • 20:04 human experience at the ragged edge of human experience.
  • 20:12 Oh, please, help us tell this story.
  • 20:15 If you find value, if you find in the Lord that he's worthy of
  • 20:19 riches and honor and glory, sow some seed please and help us to
  • 20:24 make him known in this world as we consider the Revelation and
  • 20:30 we look to unveil the visions noted therein.

  • 24:17 There's a juxtaposition.
  • 24:19 You know, earlier in Revelation congregants, believers, are
  • 24:22 sluggish, they're lukewarm.
  • 24:24 And then we pivot to this moment where people are excited.
  • 24:29 Kirsten: And with--I say the word "funky"
  • 24:32 cool-looking creatures.
  • 24:34 I mean, something we've never--creatures we don't have
  • 24:36 on earth.
  • 24:37 I love that, you know, the imagery of what it will be like.
  • 24:40 Jeffrey: And again, that's one of the reasons why it's
  • 24:43 important to look at it with a Jewish lens because we're
  • 24:45 bringing in pictures from Ezekiel that employ
  • 24:51 fantastic imagery.
  • 24:54 Similarly, Daniel, fantastic imagery with animals.
  • 24:58 But here, the throne of God in Ezekiel at the very beginning is
  • 25:03 characterized with these creatures with wings and so
  • 25:07 forth, different faces and the like, and that seems to be at
  • 25:10 play here.
  • 25:12 Looks to me that Revelation is bringing in these Older
  • 25:14 Testament stories and pointing to the culmination of human
  • 25:19 history and the advent of the messianic era.
  • 25:22 Kirsten: And there were--they were confined.
  • 25:24 So many were confined and now we have visions of what it will be
  • 25:28 like after we're let go and we're in heaven, right?
  • 25:34 I mean, gosh, what they've been walking through and now it's
  • 25:36 like, "Here's a glimpse."
  • 25:38 Jeffrey: Right, and when you think, and this is an excellent
  • 25:40 point because it relates to us today, not just back then, that
  • 25:42 these people were suppressed.
  • 25:44 They were pressed under, alone, alienated in a bad way.
  • 25:47 A lot of people today find themselves pressed amidst the
  • 25:51 turbulence of trying times, plague, disorientation,
  • 25:54 despair, unemployment.
  • 25:56 It's not exactly the same but it's when you're looking forward
  • 26:01 to life over the horizon, is there hope?
  • 26:04 And we're looking at a message here that they would have
  • 26:08 understood that there's hope at the end of the day.
  • 26:10 I hope you understand there's hope as well.
  • 26:12 We live in a world today where hope can be in very high demand
  • 26:14 and very short supply.
  • 26:17 You can't read ten minutes into the Bible without stumbling
  • 26:19 into it.
  • 26:21 Kirsten: And your favorite verse is?
  • 26:23 David: I was just thinking about that, Galatians 6:9: "Let us
  • 26:25 never get tired of doing what is right for after a while we'll
  • 26:28 reap a harvest of blessing if you don't get discouraged or
  • 26:32 give up."
  • 26:33 That's my life verse.
  • 26:35 Kirsten: And let patient endurance endure through
  • 26:37 these times.
  • 26:39 Jeffrey: Right, and if you don't lose heart, talk about losing
  • 26:42 heart we don't wanna lose the hearts.
  • 26:44 Kirsten: I appreciate that.
  • 26:47 David: So good news this week.
  • 26:49 Next week?
  • 26:51 Jeffrey: Well, you know, Revelation's a rollercoaster.
  • 26:53 You say that as we talk behind the scenes and now as well, but
  • 26:55 we all know the end of the story.
  • 26:57 There's some turbulence in the literature as the risen life but
  • 26:59 we're in the winning end of all of it.
  • 27:01 Kirsten: Come back next week, tell your friends to watch this
  • 27:03 whole series, record it and we will see Revelation through
  • 27:07 Jewish eyes.
  • 27:09 Thank you so much Jeffrey: Let's do it and thanks for doing it.
  • 27:11 And as you go now, shaalu shalom Yerushalayim.
  • 27:13 David: Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
