Marty discovers that his dad was murdered a couple of years prior and his mom is presently hitched to Biff. One of my favorite preachers on the book of Revelation is W. He is the beginning and the end. We are eavesdropping on the gift of this book which God the Father gave to His Son. Doc discovers Artie would be killed the next day for testifying, thus affecting Marty's existence. That word is used eighteen times in the New Testament.
It is the apocalypse, the unveiling, the disclosure of details heretofore hidden from human view. So it is the revelation of Jesus Christ, from God, given to the Son, which He shows to us. In fact, the best way to say it is it is a front-page story of the future of the world written by someone who was there, who was there. It reveals instruction to the church about the need for holiness. Doc tells Marty to seek the aid of his younger self, Emmett, who at this point in time assists his father, a judge at the courthouse who strongly dislikes Emmitt's desire to go into science.
The nature of this book is that it is a revelation. As he dies, Citizen Brown tells Marty he was right about Edna. God made a promise that Jesus Christ would be King of kings and Lord of lords, that He would be King of the earth. It must also be noted that even in the epistles of John there is anticipation of the return of Christ. He was buffeted and beaten and bruised. Here's the outline of the whole book.
Way back in the Old Testament the Jews had a custom. I am halted as I go through this by every term because they're so literally filled with meaning. But most of the time, the glory, the majesty, the deity, the wonder and the marvel of the Son of God, the second person of the Holy Trinity, were veiled. There are no direct quotes out of 404 verses. I pray for every person here that they would have eyes to see and ears to hear and a heart to understand because they are bond-servants of Jesus Christ. It is not just for Christ to see and understand and anticipate, but it is to be shown to us.
It reveals the triumph ultimately of God's saving purposes, no matter what Satan endeavors to do. But in a very special way, this book is the revelation. That's already happened in the past. He is the Alpha and Omega. And here, I think, is a very important note so that we don't misunderstand its meaning.
And so we could say the first five books of the New Testament are about the past. Fox and Christopher Lloyd allowed the developers to use their likenesses in the game for the lead characters Marty McFly and Doc Brown, respectively. Here we find a God of love who will dwell among men, and wipe away all tears, and abolish death, and abolish sorrow, and abolish pain. Marty's job in the future is to pose as his own son to prevent him from being thrown in prison. In His precious name we ask, amen.
Meanwhile, Edna is picked up by Citizen Brown, and when she relates what Marty has done, Brown decides to help her to stop Marty's plan. It reveals the victory of Christ over all powers, human and demonic. Don't check it out—just glance through it—it's not worth the effort. Edna is quickly arrested as she continues to ramble about her act of arson, and put into jail with Kid. It is a book of doom. He comes to earth as the King of kings and Lord of lords. Subsequent to doing that they come back to 1985.
But after all of that consideration, as I began to read over the first chapter, and just read it and reread it and meditate on it, I realize that for me to concoct an introduction, even though it be an Old Testament one or a New Testament one, would somehow be to step, as it were, on the territory which John had reserved for his own introduction. Sneaking inside, Marty learns that Edna has brainwashed Emmett and used his genius to craft the means to craft a perfect society in her eyes. To Jesus Christ; that's an interesting thought, isn't it? Now many people assume, and I need to comment on this, that this book hides things. In 1 Peter 1:7 the word is translated appearing. I thought of perhaps going back and beginning with some notes taken from the book of Ezekiel, or perhaps some notes taken from the book of Daniel, or perhaps some anticipatory teaching from the book of Zechariah, all of which touch in one way or another on this great book. And things are fine except for the fact that Tannen, who had it in for Doc, now has it for Marty and has challenged him to gunfight on the day that they are going to leave, and Doc is smitten with Clara Clayton, the new school teacher. It reveals the triumph of God's saving purpose.
