Revelation At A Glance



Revelation means ‘unveiling’ or ‘disclosure’. This is a book that reveals how the person, righteousness, and judgement of Jesus are going to be revealed in all of the fullness and power of God.

The overall purpose of Revelation is to encourage Christians. we all need to know that the Kingdom of God would overcome the kingdom of this world, and that all those who oppose God and oppress God’s children would be brought to justice.

The Author if The Apostle John. John is on Patmas, which was most likely a prison island. The apostle John wrote Revelation because he was told to. John got a vision from God and he wrote it down, like he was supposed to do.

Revelation is also perhaps the most misunderstood book in the Bible. Against a background of persecution that John was sent to Patmas, and he is granted a vision for these these tough times. ‘The Battle may be tough now,’ John says, ’ but I’ve see the ending, We Win.’

What else the book brings up, whatever different theories, that the strange details bring, the book is about God’s victory over evil.

The major theme is the eternality  and the sovereignty of God. The idea that God is outside time and sovereign over human history is encouraging, because we know that He is above the things on the earth that oppress us. God is holding all things together, and therefore, no matter how much it looks like evil is winning, that is not the reality.

in the end , when the age of fallen human being gives way to a new age of fully redeemed beings. God will restore the wonderful place He first made for us to live in, but was lost through the rebellion {sin} of Adam and Eve. It again will be a wonderful and beautiful and happy place, where those who have accepted His invitation, and who wants to live with Him forever.
