THE BOOK OF REVELATION:
HORROR STORY OR LOVE STORY?
Revelation - Chapter and Verse invites the reader to take a front seat view of what the Apostle John wrote from his own vantage point of events that is certain to happen one day. We are warned through Scripture that that day is imminent. It is the author’s prayer that the readers of this book will use the information in the pages of each chapter to take positive action in turning to God as their source of salvation by accepting His Son, Jesus Christ as their Savior. Only by God’s Grace in providing such salvation will a person escape the calamity that is coming upon all mankind. If you are alive when the events in Revelation occur, there is only one source of escape.
The indelible truth of Revelation is that it is God’s final word to man. It is the culmination of Divine Revelation. The truths we learn in Revelation encompass the entire story of the history of redemption and peers through into the future for those who will enjoy fellowship with God forever. It’s a movie that is like no other. The culmination of Revelation is infinity. For the unbeliever the infiniteness, boundlessness, limitlessness and timelessness is a horror story – to the believer it is a love story that has no end.
This book is meant to appeal to anyone who may have been reluctant until now to peer into the pages of Revelation due to some ungrounded fear of either not understanding it or being too afraid to read its content. For all who read Revelation, Jesus Himself says you will be blessed by reading it and blessed if you take heed of the words prophetically provided in it for you. Revelation fulfills the plans of the entire purpose of man’s past and future and reveals that plan through mankind’s Savior. It IS the Revelation of Jesus Christ for our benefit through Him. More than that, it places Christ as central to all that is and will be throughout eternity.
It is our prayer that this book will assist you as you study Revelation.
