It's not rocket science! You don't need a PhD!
The Book of Revelation is not complicated. In fact, the story line is so simple it can be taught to a child, and has been for thousands of years.
No one needs a degree to work out what Revelation is about!
Revelation was written to ordinary, everyday people living around 2000 years ago. Those people didn't have the education we have today; they were much simpler times.
So why do so many educated people of today believe only scholars can interpret the Book of Revelation? Is it because 'scholars' have deliberately made people dependent on them by complicating what is written; plying us with so many contradictory 'additions' and theories the simple beauty of what is said can no longer be seen?
I believe so!
The Apostle John wrote Revelation expecting everyone would be able to understand the meaning; educated or uneducated, young or old. Further, he expected everyone who understood what was written would be blessed.
Blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it; for the time is near. (Rev.1:3)
Is that the impression you have when you read Revelation? Do you feel blessed?
Biblical 'scholars' who treat what is written in Revelation as anything but a blessing, obviously have no understanding of the book's meaning. Their complicated theories and unholy 'additions' need to be tossed out.
Why do I call their 'additions' unholy?
Simple! Because Christ himself is so offended by them, he has warned he will remove his eternal blessing from everyone who 'adds' to what is written.
I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city. He who testifies to these things says, 'Behold, I am coming soon!' (Rev.22:18-20)
Despite what many false teachers have said, the Book of Revelation:
is not about a human Antichrist ruling the world,
is not about a coming one-world government,
is not about a rapture,
is not about the rebuilding of an earthly temple, and
is not about seven years of unbridled Satantic havoc.
Not one of these things exist in the Book of Revelation! They have all been 'added'!
What happens to those who believe and teach things which are NOT actually written in Revelation? Jesus, in the above verse, tells us plainly. His warning is very, very scary! If it doesn't scare you, it should!
So what is Revelation about?
From start to finish the Book of Revelation glorifies Christ. It is his personal testimony which explains how his death and resurrection triumphed over Satan.
The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him...that is, the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. (Rev.1:1-2)
I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. (Rev.22:16)
The Book of Revelation is the personal testimony of the King of Kings, given from his point of view, after his battles were fought, and won, and he was hailed as the victor.
In it, Christ explains why he went to war in the first place; to defend his Father’s kingdom, and to rescue the love of his life, his beautiful future bride.
Christ’s own personal testimony, is filled with multiple spiritual insights which could not be revealed to mankind before his death and resurrection.
It is a treasure of Heaven, so precious, Christ had to die in order for it to be revealed.
Christ's strong warning at the end of his testimony is not surprising. As the personal testimony of a mighty King, this is a royal document, a royal decree, and everyone knows a royal decree can never be altered, for death awaits those who dare.
The Book of Revelation is not complicated! It is a fascinating, beautiful and powerful book of blessing. It is packed with the brilliance and magnificence of Christ's multiple victories over Satan and his supporters, and holds the greatest hope the world has ever known.
Even the number 666 glorifies Christ, as do all the images!
False teachers and false prophets, who remove Christ from Revelation and put Satan in his place, have changed the meanings of these beautiful images, making them frightening and horrible, instead of instruments of praise to God.
This has to stop!
Throw out the false teachings dot pointed above, and get back to the truth.
Revelation is about Jesus, and Jesus is about love!
