Why Another Book on Revelation?
Many believers find Revelation difficult and therefore they seldom read it and never have seriously studied it. It is also neglected from the pulpit. Both laity and pastors avoid it for the same reason. it seems too mystical and symbolic for anyone but a professional to understand. Such is not the case. It was written for all believers to read and comprehend. The Holy Spirit inspired the book of Revelation and if for no other reason the Bible declares it to be profitable for doctrine, correction, and instruction in righteousness.
This book is an attempt to let Revelation tell its own story. The central theme as set forth in the first verse is the unveiling of Jesus Christ in full victory and in His glorified state. The book begins with an announcement that Jesus has won. He is stage center and in charge from the beginning of the Revelation to its conclusion.
This last book of the Bible shows how the history of the world will terminate. Jesus Christ is to personally, bodily, return to earth and set up the kingdom of heaven on earth. The fact that His church will reign with Him is of personal interest to every Christian. You cannot get this full story any place else in the Bible but the Revelation. The rapture of the church, the restoration of Israel, and the end of the times of the Gentiles show how God will close out history just as He had planned it. All these facts surround the incredible seven year tribulation period. It all makes sense when put in its context. History is laid aside and the door is opened to eternity.
This study of Revelation gives special attention to the key Christ gave John in Revelation 1:19. He told the apostle the book would be made up of three parts; the vision of the glorified Christ, the things that are an overview of the church age given in the seven letters, and the third section is comprised of the things hereafter. This third section begins with chapter four and continues to the end of the book. God is pleased to lift the veil on the future to the extent we need to be aware of it.
