    Introduction The book of Revelation, referred to by many other names, the Apocalypse of John, Revelation to John, or simply Revelation is final book of the New Testament. Moreover, Revelation crosses three literary genres including epistolary, apocalyptic, and prophetic. Due in part to the variety of Revelation, it should come as no surprise that there are a multitude of different views on the interpretation of Revelation. This paper will focus primarily on four of the main viewpoints, Preterist, Historicist, Futurist, and Idealist/Spiritualist. It is using hermeneutics, that each individual view tries to interpret Revelation. While the preterist and historicist views may seem similar in some ways, primarily both view Revelation as historical…

    John writes the book of Revelation to testify “to everything he saw” of the testimony given to him by Jesus Christ. He recorded his vision from Christ “for the benefit of…Christians throughout history”. He wrote to the seven churches in the provinces of Asia to urge his readers to “be ready at all times for the Last Judgment and the establishment of God’s kingdom.” While Revelation is not, as some assume, a secret code to unlock the future, it is a great resource to Christians so that they…

    In the Book of Revelation, the theme of God enforcing destruction of the world and the unbelievers is prominent throughout the chapters, and the colored horsemen help advance that theme. Destruction of the world is apparent because war affects the nations that are involved in the war, which may lead to bloodshed. Additionally, chapter six starts with the horsemen representing the consequences for unbelievers during the Tribulation period. This period is meant to discipline the unbelievers for…

    Views ', I thought to myself what view am I? I also pondered, just how much do I really believe and understand the book of Revelation? First, I do believe it was a revelation from Jesus Christ which God gave to him. There are so many variations of what is the truth. However, God tells us at the beginning of Revelation that he is the author. Therefore, God is the author, Jesus is the Revelation and John is the literal writer. It is amazing that all through the New Testament there are…

The word Patmos is translated literally as “my killing”, and the island is considered basical sterile by several sources (Davis, 1944 & Gospel Faith, 2016). Little will grow in its rocks. In the strictest sense, sterile means unable to produce offspring or infertile. The island is located in the Aegean Sea, southwest of Turkey. This is where the Emperor exiled John in AD 95…
