  1. Apocalypse: comes the Greek word “apokalupsis,” which means “revelation” or “disclosure.”

  2. Never: when you look up the word "never" in Strong's Concordance, you find that it comes from five different Greek words which are spelled in English: OU, ME, EIS, HO, and AION. 

    1. The words OU and ME form a double negative meaning "Not at all, by no means, in no case, never." 

    2. This double negative was used to state denials or prohibitions emphatically (Dana and Mantey, A Manual Grammar of the Greek New Testament, p. 266). 

    3. The remaining three words combine to form an idiomatic expression meaning "forever" (The Englishman's Greek New 'Testament, p. 276). 

    4. In the Greek, John 10:28 would read something like this: "And I give unto them eternal life and they shall not at all, by any means, male or female, in any case, forever perish."

  3. Repent: comes from the Greek word “metanoeo,” it means “to change your mind.”

  4. Repentance: comes from the Greek word “metanoia,” it means “to change your mind.”

    1. The word in the New Testament usually translated “repent” is the Greek word “metanoeo,” and the word translated “repentance” is “metanoia.”  Both of these Greek words have the same basic meaning: “to change your mind; reconsider; or, to think differently.”

    2. If you look up “repent” or “repentance” in a modern dictionary you will read definitions like the following: “regret; to feel sorry for sin and seek forgiveness; to turn from sin.” Based on these definitions, preachers have been going about earnestly trying to get men to quit their sinning, or at least to work up a genuine sorrow for sin. But is this the divinely-appointed task of Christians -to get men to change their ways?

  5. Servant: comes from the Greek word is “doulos,” it means “slave.”

  6. Sin: comes from the Greek word is “hamartano,” it means “to miss the mark.”




  1. Millennium: comes from this expression, "a thousand years." It comes to us through the Latin mille = a thousand; annum = year. 

  2. Rapture: comes from the Latin word “raptura,” it means “a carrying off, abduction, snatching away.”

    1. Some individuals say the word “rapture” is not in the Bible; however, the word is in the Bible when it is written in Latin. 

  3. Religion: comes from the two Latin words make up our English word “religion,” “re” and “ligio,” it means to “bind back.” 

    1. Religions are man’s effort to “bind” himself “back” to God or bring himself back into favor with God. 

  4. Revelation: comes from the Latin word “revelatio,” it means a disclosure of that which was previously hidden or unknown.

    1. The English word “apocalypse” from the Greek word “apokalupsis,” which means “revelation” or “disclosure.”




  1. Christ: comes from the Hebrew word “mashiah,” it means “the anointed.”

  2. Jesus: the name Jesus comes from the Greek translation of the Hebrew words “Jehovah Yasha” and means “the eternal, self-existent God who saves and keeps.” 

    1. Those who believe Jesus is the Lord and trust Him to save them and keep them saved can KNOW they have ETERNAL LIFE. A person does not need to hope, thnk, guess, or pray for it. A person can KNOW they have ETERNAL LIFE.

  3. Messiah: comes from the Hebrew word “mashiah,” it means "the anointed" (of the Lord), from mashah "anoint."
