The Book of Revelation is one of the most fascinating book in the Bible. From the very first page to the very last, it literally captivates our attention and points us to a detailed description of our future destiny while here on earth.
From the very first chapter of the New Testament, Genesis is the book of the beginnings, while Revelation is known as the book of completion. The Book of Revelation is the sixty-sixth and final book of the New Testament which focuses primarily on the future and prophetic events.
This book also makes great use of vibrant and strange symbolic images: we see a lamb with seven eyes and seven horns, a bright red seven headed dragon; a horrific looking beast with seven heads and ten horns; a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and many more.
To many readers, the Book of Revelation is a closed book. More than one Bible teacher or pastor has taken a class or congregation from the Book of Matthew in the New Testament all the way through the Book of Jude, only to turn around and go right back to the Book of Matthew rather than face the strange and unusual visions, imagery, and teachings of the Book of Revelation.
In addition, this is the only book in the Bible that promises a "special blessing" to those who read this book, hear its' words, and also keeps it. It reveals God's plan for the future, particularly in days like ours when world conditions are so uncertain.
While there are many Christians who habe a great curiosity about the Book of Revelation, they soon find out there are a few teachers in the church who are reluctant to teach the book because of the symbolic imagery and apocalyptic language. They are afraid they will teach something that is wrong.
As a result, this truth was kept in mind when the "Teacher's Guide For The Book Of Revelation" was written, so that any person who reads this book, be it a lay-person, baby Christian, teacher or a pastor, will come away from this study with a much clearer understanding of the overall message of the Book of Revelation.
As we study this book together, I want to assure you that there is one thing that comes through loud and clear: in the first few paragraphs, Revelation identifies it's source; this book is a Revelation of Jesus Christ. This statement alone asserts that Jesus Christ gave this Revelation, or unveiling of himself, and about himself, to reveal His full identity to all believers.
Each chapter of this "study guide" is paired alongside scripture, using a verse by verse analysis. This guide gives a clear millennial scenario of understanding the signs that bring us to the end of the world on this Earth; a Rapture; the Antichrist; Satan and the False Prophet.
It also shoes us a period of tribulation; God's judgement on a sinful world, the end of the battle of Armageddon; and a one-thousand year reign of living, loving, and worshipping with Jesus Christ in the New Heaven and the New Earth.
