For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. - Romans 15:4
The purpose of the book of Revelation is to encourage us to press on in our faith. Despite the difficult imagery and language, it is one of the most encouraging and instructional book in the New Testament. It is a letter with a beautifully simple, reassuring message and it is applicable even to the modern Christian today.
Unfortunately many who have tried to study the book give up after failing to make sense of the confusing passages of prophetic imagery.
The key to understanding the Book of Revelations is not in deciphering the images of angels, dragons and beasts. The key to understanding the purpose and the message of this book lies in understanding who John was writing to, their present circumstances and why he wrote to them, and the purpose of this talk is to help you do exactly that.
This updated talk will:
Show you the events that led to this letter of warning and encouragement
Present you with an easy to understand layout of the contents of the letter
Suggest ways to approach the text in a practical, straightforward way
Help you understand some of the key prophetic images and
Deal with some of the controversy over this book
Conducted in an informal and easy to follow setting, this talk will help you finally remove the cloud of confusion and your apprehension over the book of Revelation!
