What will really happen when Christ returns?
There have been so many false predictions and outrageous claims about an Antichrist and his supposedly frightening mark that most people no longer want to hear about Revelation. It seems that turning people away from the truth of Revelation was the plan all along...
REVELATION IS ABOUT JESUS. IT HAS NEVER BEEN ABOUT SATAN.
With all the hype about a ferocious Anti-Christ, a cruel one-world government, various physical 'marks' and outrageous claims that the four horsemen of Revelation, under Satan's control, will bring famine, plague, sword, and death to the earth, it is no wonder so many good people are afraid to talk about Revelation.
But is any of the above true? Is Revelation about Satan? Absolutely NOT!
You may be surprised to discover just how many of the above commonly accepted theories, plus more, cannot be found anywhere in the Book of Revelation. Each concept above has been 'added' to Revelation directly against the command of Christ, who said:
I warn everyone who hears the prophecy of this scroll. If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll. And if anyone takes words away from the scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in the scroll. He who testifies to these things says, "Yes, I am coming soon." (Rev.22:18-20)
So, let's take a look at what is NOT written in the Book of Revelation and has, therefore, been added:
A human Antichrist world-ruler;
A one-world government;
A physical ‘mark’;
A future tribulation;
An ‘escape’ rapture;
A rebuilt earthly temple;
An abomination ruling from a temple;
A special ‘last days’ era;
Rome or Israel;
The word 'antichrist'.
Yes! ALL of these are 'theories' that have been ADDED to Revelation! All of them!
So, here's the big question. If all the above concepts and theories do not exist in Revelation, then what is Revelation about?
Revelation is about Jesus. Pure and Simple!
The truth is, there are no horror stories in Revelation. Revelation is the testimony of our victorious Saviour, given after he was raised from the dead and crowned King over all kings. It was written to give us confidence in the power and permanence of his victory over Satan.
It that what it does? Yes! Revelation is a book of blessing.
Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, for the time is near. (Rev.1:3)
All the mysterious images, symbols and visions of Revelation were given by Christ to John for our instruction, and each one is a testament to Christ's great love both for his Father and his bride. That includes the image of the beast and the famous number 666. Does the beastly image extol Christ's victory? Yes! Does the number 666 glorify Christ? Yes! Brilliantly!
Contrary to popular belief, all the visions, symbols and mysteries are easy to understand!
When all the protective layers of mystery and symbolism are peeled back, the blinding glory and power of Christ's redemption of mankind is more than breathtaking - it is mind-blowing!
Isn't it time for the church to take it's eyes off Satan and put them firmly onto Christ?
There is nothing hidden or concealed that will not be brought out into the open. (Luke 8:17)
REVELATION Ancient & Mysterious was studiously considered for over three decades before being authored by Monica Bennett-Ryan.
The stunning cover on this book was crafted with great care by Donika Mishineva of Bulgaria. She said, "I have made the leather look old and worn, as if it has been through many hands. The embossing gives the impression of royalty while the golden lock hints at something of great value. The peeled back area shows that the secrets, symbols and visions inside can not be constrained but have a life of their own." Her design is perfect!
The HARDCOVER makes a quality gift and would grace any coffee table.
The PAPERBACK is as deep and rich as the hardcover.
The EBOOK is only available through Amazon Kindle.
