Revelation is the only book in the Bible which promises blessings to any and everyone who reads it. It's a fascinating journey of prophecy of the end of our world as we know it. Both daily Bible studies that I currently do and highly recommend to anyone seeking to know more of God's Word---Daily Quiet Walk, an e-mail service, and One Year Bible Blog, one of my links to the right---are both winding up this year with studies of Revelation. Here is a brief commentary from Revelation 19:
Apocalypse: "The revelation of a violent struggle in which evil will be destroyed" (Webster's Dictionary). The second coming of Christ will be the apocalypse fulfilled. While the symbolism of the language in Revelation makes it difficult to ascertain exactly how events will unfold, it is clear that when Jesus returns again, it will be to confront evil and destroy it. The heavens will split and Jesus will descend upon the armies of the earth which have gathered in opposition to His return. In contrast to His past role as Savior of man, He will now come as King of creation. Whereas once He made Himself subject to men, now all men will become subject to Him. History will end and eternity will begin.
Most of us simply don't take this seriously, calling it nonsense. But we do so at our own great eternal peril, it reveals.
