End Times

The Spiritual Path And The Ongoing Struggle Between Good And Evil.

The Book of Revelation, often simply referred to as Revelation or the Apocalypse, is the final book of the New Testament. It is also the only apocalyptic document in the New Testament canon (i.e., the collection of documents that are accepted as the Bible). It occupies a central place in Christian eschatology, which is the study of the last things or end times.

Written by John, its purpose is to provide a hopeful message to encourage Christians during a time of persecution. The book contains a series of visions that symbolize the ultimate victory of good over evil, culminating in the Second Coming of Christ, the final judgement, and the emergence of a new heaven and a new earth.

Revelation’s rich symbolism and dramatic imagery have been interpreted in many ways over the centuries, and it has inspired countless commentaries, homilies, works of art, and pieces of literature. However, it’s important to note that much of its imagery is complex and often difficult to interpret. For example, the book references beasts, dragons, horsemen, and a woman clothed with the sun, which have all been variously interpreted by different Christian traditions and individuals.

For reading the Book of Revelation, or any part of the Bible, in the King James Version, keep in mind that it’s an early modern English translation, so some language may be archaic to modern readers. Newer translations like the New International Version (NIV) or English Standard Version (ESV) may offer more accessible language for some people.

Here is the opening verse from the Book of Revelation as translated in the New International Version (NIV) for reference:

Revelation 1:1-3 NIV:

1 “The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, 2 who testifies to everything he saw that is, the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. 3 Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.”

The book continues in this vein, offering prophecies about the rise of the beast, the great tribulation, the final judgment, the defeat of Satan, and the ushering in of a new heaven and a new earth.

Just like in any other translation, understanding the Book of Revelation in the New International Version can be challenging due to its heavy use of symbolism and apocalyptic imagery. These elements have been interpreted in many different ways throughout history and have given rise to a variety of theological perspectives on the end times, including premillennialism, postmillennialism, and amillennialism, among others.

If you plan to read the Book of Revelation (or any part of the Bible), it might be helpful to do so with the guidance of commentary or a study guide, which can provide important historical and cultural context. And, as always, many people find it valuable to discuss their reading with others, whether that be in a formal Bible study group, or informally with friends or family.

The Book of Revelation contains 22 chapters and a total of 404 verses. I can share a couple of examples from various sections of the book:

The opening verse (Revelation 1:1):

“The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John.”

The letter to the Church in Ephesus (Revelation 2:1-7):

“To the angel of the church in Ephesus write: These are the words of him who holds the seven stars in his right hand and walks among the seven golden lampstands. I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked people, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not and have found them false. You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name and have not grown weary. Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first…”

Vision of the end times (Revelation 6:12-14):

“I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.”

The final promise (Revelation 22:20-21):

“He who testifies to these things says, ‘Yes, I am coming soon.’ Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.”
