Weekly tips on great novels to read.
The book of revelation is the epitome of all the events happening in the church today, in chapter 1:1 we read, "This book is the record of the events that Jesus Christ revealed. God gave him this revelation in order to show his servants what must happen very soon. Christ made these things known to his servant John by sending His Angel to him.
We need to understand that our Lord Jesus Christ personally revealed some secrets to his servants and not just one servant but to His servants. Therefore, this book is for everyone who is truly a servant of Christ. In Rev.1:3 we read "Happy is the one who reads this book and happy are those who listen to the words of this prophetic message and obey what is written in this book for the time is near when all these things will happen.
Our Lord Jesus Christ emphatically said, "The time is near when all these things will happen. In accordance with the words of Christ, before long the events started unfolding and have continued until date.
In the first place, we must understand that the revelation is all about events that will happen in the world starting with the Church. Our LORD Jesus Christ said to John "Write then the things you see both the things that are now and the things that will happen afterwards. This is secret meaning of the seven stars that you see in my right hand and of the seven gold lamp stands: the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches and the seven lamp stands are the seven churches -Rev.1:19-20.
