Bible Prophecy Truth for Everyone
The final book of the Bible, entitled The Apocalypse or The Book of Revelation, is a written record in the form of a letter (an epistle), in which future events were revealed to the writer in visions and portrayed through symbolic language. This unique genre of revelatory written works in which future events are revealed through dreams or visions is known as apocalyptic literature and includes portions of the Old Testament books of Ezekiel and Daniel.
No book in the Bible is more discussed and less understood than the Book of Revelation. If you are interested in biblical prophecy and fascinated by the Book of Revelation or just want a better understating of this book, you have come to the right place. Revelation is a frequently neglected book partly because its symbolism makes it difficult to understand and obscure. Therefore it cannot be read lightly but with diligence it will yield its treasures to those who seek them.
The book itself has a promise for those who read and hear the words from Revelation as quoted in the following scripture. “Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand”. (Rev 1:3)
Many who read Revelation for the first time, particularly as a new Christian, it seems like a fantastic book full of imagery and all different kinds of spectacularly described beasts. What do all these hidden messages mean to the reader of these words? As one grows in the understanding of the Revelation more of it becomes familiar and recognizable.
Why was Revelation written with in the apocalyptic style of writing and not literal? One of the reasons for this style of writing is likely to make vivid images for us to remember. The use of symbolic imagery also makes it meaningful to all generations because it does not tie the symbols to any one specific event in history. They keys to understanding Revelation’s imagery, and symbolic language can be gained by studying the Old and New Testament references that unlock the mysteries of Revelation with the discerning help of the Holy Spirit
