Welcome to this course, Metaphysical Bible Study: Decoding the Revelation, Part One (Revelation 1:1 to 8:1).

This study of Revelation is a consciousness-journey where you will learn to decode the apocalyptic symbols and apply spiritual truths, ideas, and laws to your life that bring healing and immense spiritual development.

If you are a spiritual seeker curious about the book of Revelation, looking for powerful spiritual development with practical effects, this course is for you. Part One of this course includes the riveting story of Revelation's origin, the experiences of its author, and a life-changing, health-producing analysis of the "Messages to the Churches," messages to the individual consciousness that skyrocket spiritual development and understanding. It continues to the 2nd of the seven Visions that make up the body of Revelation (the "Throne-Room" and the "Angels with Seals"). The following course, "Decoding the Revelation: Part 2," completes this dynamic and energizing study with the final Visions. Expected launch date, October 2015.

Students should work through this course (Part One) in about six to eight weeks, and the subsequent course on the seven visions of Revelation in three to four months. Steady, systematic study will yield the best results as you train thought to live consistently and consciously in the healing-energy of the Christ.

Recommendation: Study deeply and meditate on the key ideas. Utilize the decoded instructions for overcoming whatever is unlike good and claiming your true freedom in the Love of the One, the I AM THAT I AM. Review each day, keep a journal, and feel after the vibrant energy of Spirit in everyday life.

Let the Spirit shine through. “Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you" (James 4:8).

Intro to Church Messages

Each Message has 3 parts: the correcting quality, the problem, the reward for overcoming.

Messages to Seven Churches Overview
1 page

Rev. 2:1-7. Stay with your "first love" -- no burn out, but fueled by the Spirit! Recommendation: work with one "Message" every day or two to prepare thought to more fully receive the body of the Revelation given in the seven Visions.

Message to Ephesus

Rev. 2:8-11. Focus on eternal life -- your uninterrupted immortality / coexistence with the I AM.

Message to Smyrna

Rev. 2:12-17. Watch out for that "stumbling block" of pleasurable temptation or attraction -- don't be a moth flying blithfully into the bright light bulb only to be seared.

Message to Pergamos

Rev. 2:18-29. Escape domination, control, manipulation (Jezebel) through the dominion given by Christ whereby God governs all that has to do with you.

Message to Thyatira

Rev. 3:1-6. How and why to be mentally awake and watchful.

Message to Sardis

Rev. 3:7-13. Contemplate and activate the power of brotherly love within you. How could you rev up your expression of pure brotherly love ten-fold today? Challenge yourself with a plan and do it! It returns to you 100-fold and transforms you with grace.

Message to Philadephia

Rev. 3:14-22. The final message is to your "Laodicea-consciousness." No more lukewarm attitude; be zealous. Rise to your true potential of divine energy as the "image and likeness" of God, Good. Be "hot or cold," but not lukewarm (like food that has been sitting out for too long). Be your excellent self, reflecting the infinite One, the I AM.

After studying and practicing these "Messages" you will be prepared to enter into the heart of the Revelation, the seven Visions of spiritual reality coming up next -- instructive, practical, uplifting, saving.

Message to Laodicea

Identify the specific strengths, errors, remedies, and rewards for each Spirit-message to consciousness.
