The book of Revelation was not written to create confusion, cause division, or promote speculation. It was written to give unshakable hope to suffering Christians, encourage unwavering holiness in a seductive culture, refute deception in the church, and fuel mission among the nations. As we marvel at God’s greatness and see the glorious pictures of His gospel in this book, we can live in present obedience to the Lord of the universe, Jesus Christ, knowing that He loves us and is coming for us.
