Revelation Lesson 24: Why Study Revelation?

March 19, 2020 @ 3:25 pm

Many people avoid the Book of Revelation for a number of incorrect reasons!  Some think it is "too difficult to understand" (not true); some think everything in it has already been fulfilled (we must be living in a perfect world  then ??).  Whatever a person's excuse for not studying this book might be, it is very strange.  Why? Because it is the only book of Scripture that specifically promises a blessing to the one who reads and heeds its prophecies (Revelation 1:3).  It is Satan who wants to keep people from understanding "the end of the story"!

Revelation is the consummation and capstone of God's complete redemptive program for the entire world, including creation.  Without Revelation, the Bible would be an unfinished Book!  It is inexcusable to do exactly what God told us not to do:  "Seal NOT the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand" (22:10). 

In this study, the four main "schools of interpretation" for Revelation are presented, along with solid reasons to support the futuristic view over the other three.  This lesson is an"overview" of the only prophetic book of the New Testament (contrast that with 17 prophetic Old Testament books). 

Another great feature of this lesson is its "jet tour" look at the resurrected Christ's letters to the seven churches of chapters 2 and 3 (presented in detail in Lessons #1-23, to be downloaded on this podcast at a later date) and how they prophetically spelled-out the past 2,000 years of church history!!  THAT ALONE IS WORTH THE TIME TAKEN TO LISTEN TO THIS MESSAGE!

This study is from "Caldwell Commentary" series, "Revelation Vol. 2" (available through www.scripturetruth.com).
