John Dunn is very interested in long term forecasting, prophesy, and Biblical studies.
Relatively early in life he took a teacher's training course in the Bethel Bible Series. Later John wrote an extremely limited circulation newsletter titled, "The Association of Christians in Secular Careers.”
In 2004 John spent most of the year going through the Bible and writing a brief overview of what he thought were the main concepts presented in each book. Currently John is in the process of updating his 10-year-old writings and publishing a series of ebooks on the book of Revelation in the Bible.

The mystery of the Key of David, in Revelation 3:7, has been hiding in plain sight for several thousand years. Yet is readily available to those who are eager and willing to see, hear, comprehend and obey the Word of God. The Philadelphian church in Revelation 3:7-13 is known for their deeds, keeping God's Word and not denying God's Name. So they are given an open door that no one can shut.
The bad churches in Rev chapter 3 are very similar to many of the active and well-respected churches today! They may have a reputation for being alive with numerous activities, but are actually spiritually dead. Some may be rich, have a long “A list” membership, and say they need nothing. But God says they are pitiful, poor, blind and naked -- spiritually lukewarm; worthless in the eyes of God.
"Part Good and Part Bad Churches" in Revelation chapters 2 and 3 are: (1) Ephesus: Forsook first love! (2) Pergamum: Where Satan Has His Throne. (3) Thyatira: You Tolerate That Woman Jezebel! The Study / Discussion Topics ask thought provoking questions about your life and the churches you attend. What led churches astray in Revelation and what leads people astray today?
The "Good Churches" in Revelation chapters 2 and 3 are: (1) Smyrna: The Suffering Church is told, "Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life." (2) Philadelphia: Praised: for their good deeds; keeping God's Word; and, not denying His name. "I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut." Thought provoking Study / Discussion Topics are included.
