The book of Revelation

Openbaring

Maybe you think that the book of Revelation is incomprehensible and possibly the most difficult book in the Bible to understand. Satan would like you to think that, because the book of Revelation proclaims Christ’s victory over Satan! The book of Revelation does not intend to scare you. On the contrary, it encourages you with the fact that Jesus Christ reigns supreme and that you are ‘more than conquerors’ through Christ both now as well as in the future at Christ’s second coming. The purpose of this study is to help you understand the book of Revelation.

The book of Revelation is an apocalypse, an unveiling or revelation of the message of Jesus Christ by means of visions that contain symbols and numbers. Jesus Christ himself gives us the keys to interpret the book of Revelation. He determines the rules by which it should be explained.

In addition there is an extended commentary on the book of Revelation on this website. That one contains amongst others ‘a summary of the second coming’ and ‘a study on dispensational and covenant theology’ (2008, 718 pages).
