What is Revelation about? Prophecy? End times? Actually the main subject of the book is Jesus Christ. In Revelation, we will see Jesus in a whole new way!
The purpose of this book is to encourage godly behavior today because Jesus is sovereign over your past, present and future. Prophecy is not to satisfy the curious, but to motivate the carnal.
We will take a “futurist” viewpoint, humbly, knowing there are other interpretive frameworks. Apocalyptic literature is intentionally full of mystery.
1-3 Jesus: Lord of the Church
4-5 Jesus: Lord of Heaven
6-18 Jesus: Judges the Earth
19-22 Jesus: Victorious!
