NOT A HORROR STORY...

The Book of Revelation has a hero, a damsel in distress, a villain and a plot!  When we don't 'add' anything to it or 'take' anything away, the plot becomes easy to see. As we follow the plot, what we find is that the story of Revelation is about love in the same way that a children’s story of a royal hero rescuing his beautiful princess is all about love. It's not complicated - it's beautiful!


The Book of Revelation is the story of our victorious royal hero, Jesus Christ, and what he has done to rescue his beloved future bride from the various schemes of his arch rival, the Devil. John was given this revelation by Jesus himself; the whole account is his story given from his point of view. It is written in the language of contrasts and, contrary to popular belief, is not difficult to understand. In fact, the simplicity of Revelation may surprise you. What I find difficult to understand is why so much horror has been written about this most awesome of books. It is clear that Revelation was written to glorify Christ; and I believe that is exactly what it does!


The hero of Revelation, who defeats dragons, beasts, frog kings and a wicked queen, showers those who overcome in the same way that he has overcome with riches beyond measure, and the images that describe his victories are road maps to those riches, or in other words, lessons in overcoming. All the images of Revelation, including that most famous mark, 666, were given to us by our victorious Saviour so that we could clearly see Satan’s devices, rejoice over how thoroughly his death and resurrection has defeated him, and join him in his victory.


God forbid that I should ever glory except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, 

through which the world has been crucified to me and I to the world. (Gal.6:14)


From start to finish Revelation glorifies Christ; it’s a love story; the greatest love story ever told. It shows the depth of the love between Christ and his Father and how that deep love is mirrored in the love of Christ for his beloved bride. There is so much love to be seen in Revelation that one could spend a lifetime looking into the beauty of that love and never come to the end of the story.


As I explain to you how I see Christ in the most wonderful last book of the Bible it is my hope that you will fall in love with our heroic Lord all over again and see him the way he deserves to be seen; as the world’s only glorious and victorious Saviour.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Monica Bennett-Ryan has been a believer most of her life. She was aware that she loved Jesus by the age of 7 and was filled with the Spirit a few years later in 1963, but dedicated her life to Christ on Father’s Day 1975. She lives in Queensland Australia near two of her three married children and six gorgeous grand children. "I fell deeply in love with my Saviour over 40 years ago. I believe the Great Commission is about helping people fall in love with the most wonderful hero the world has ever seen. My book, REVELATION: A Love Story, is a celebration of the greatest love the world has ever known!”

WHY THE BOOK WAS WRITTEN

Monica's personal testimony;


I have no recollection of ever wanting to understand the images of Revelation, but the perspective I now have of the beauty and absolute authority of Christ as sovereign Lord was given to me by God through the Book of Revelation after I had become so distressed by the ugliness of Satan's blasphemy against Christ that I asked God to show me how to counteract it's effect. 


It was a quiet Sunday afternoon in 1981 and I had a few minutes to spare before leaving for church so I flicked casually through the local newspaper. When I turned to the entertainment guide I saw an advertisement for a movie at the local club and the name of the star was 'Emmanuelle'. It took me a few seconds to realize that the movie being advertised was pornographic, then I was horrified, not because pornography exists, but because the name this porn queen chose was the name of Christ. I closed the paper and began to pray, talking to the Lord about the horror of what I had just seen and then put it out of my mind and went on with other things.


That evening during worship, I began to sing "Emanuel, God with us" and as I sang the name of Christ I remembered the horrible advertisement and became angry that Satan's blasphemy was intruding on my worship. At that point all I wanted to do was compensate my Saviour somehow for the injustice and hatred of the blatant blasphemy raging against him. I threw myself into prayer and as I tried to lift up the name of Christ I realized I didn't know how to, so I asked him to teach me how to fight Satan's blasphemy. 


Sadness enveloped me and for several days I couldn't think about anything but the assault on the name of Christ. I felt small and useless in the face of what I was thinking and feeling because I didn't know what to do about it, so I continued to pray for understanding.


Towards the end of the third day, I remembered that somewhere in the Book of Revelation there was something written about Satan's blasphemy of the name of Christ so I picked up the Bible and turned to the Book of Revelation. The page that opened was Chapter 13, the one that talks about the beast with seven heads filled with blasphemous names, and what I saw left me stunned!


Within the space of a few hours, I saw that Satan's warfare is entirely directed at breaking down the Commandments of God and bringing blasphemy to the name of Christ but also that God puts powerful limits on his aggression. I saw that God has always had absolute ruler-ship over everything in heaven and on earth, that nothing can ever stop his powerful word from becoming reality, that the voluntary death of his Son has eternally flowing ramifications which Satan cannot even begin to fight, and that those who simply accept the victory of Christ's death automatically share his triumph over Satan. I began to read the Book of Revelation with new eyes and as I did I began to see the enormous depths of the love of God and the smallness of Satan in comparison. 


Many years have passed and over those years I have never stopped learning. When God answers prayer he is thorough. I am now confident that I know how to tear down the blasphemy of Satan, but more importantly, I know how to lift up the name of Christ. I have written REVELATION: A Love Story so that I can share what I know about the glorious might of our conquering hero and the impervious salvation he offers his beloved. 


Enjoy and be blessed!
