Excerpt: Revelation Unraveled
The Book of Revelation was intended to be a blessing to those who read it, yet many believers are absolutely terrified at the thought of studying this book. Perhaps, it is because in today’s prophetical climate, with the focus on predictions and identifications, people have become intimidated by complicated schemes. It is easier to avoid Revelation than to get lost in the maze of speculation and detail. Instead, we let the gurus of prophecy, with their charts and dogmatic predictions, guide our thinking, convinced that only the elite are able to decipher and decode the Book of Revelation. Simply put, it is a shame that people are so afraid of the Book of Revelation. It is sad that Revelation, intended to encourage and enlighten God’s people, has been reduced to a complicated and confusing document. The goal of this book is to challenge believers to study and enjoy Revelation. My desire is to simplify and unravel the subject matter, and to apply the details of Revelation to our everyday lives. Revelation was never intended to be vague or confusing. It was intended to encourage the church in the midst of very trying circumstances. The Book of Revelation was designed to glorify Christ, not man-made schemes. It was written for understanding, not to confuse. Finally, it was written to encourage a lifestyle committed to Christ, not to frantic predictions.
