Revelation 1:9 I, John, both your brother and companion in the tribulation and kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was on the island that is called Patmos for the word of God and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.
John the Apostle.
He was a fisherman along with his late brother, James, and their father Zebedee.
Together, James and John were known as the sons of thunder.
He is the youngest of all the apostles and now finds himself an old man banished to an island in the Aegean sea.
John is there as punishment for preaching the Gospel.
He is tossed aside and thrown away; an outcast of society.
The Empire may be through with John.
The world may have cast him aside.
Perhaps he had friends that did not know what happened to him.
But God knew where he was and was not through with John.
It is on this tiny island where God reveals to him His plan of the end of times.
His record of the events is not held by the boundaries of the island but makes it to the mainland to the proposed recipients and eventually into the bindings of the Bible.
Here is a revelation for you – no matter where you are or what others think about you, God is not through with you!
