The book of Revelation has long captivated the imagination of Christians. Jesus appeared in a vision to the Apostle John while he was exiled on the island of Patmos.  In this vision, Jesus commands John to write down what he sees as a message to the seven Churches in the province of Asia (present day Turkey).  After the LORD’s summons, John dictates seven short messages to each of the churches.  These are the churches to whom the Revelation was recorded and delivered.  It remains in our Scripture’s today because while not written to us, it is still for us.  This Sunday we begin a new series entitled 7 letters for seven Churches.  We begin with the letter to the much beloved church of Ephesus.   Read Revelation 1:1 - 2:7.
