The Vision of Christ
The book of Revelation is often seen as confusing, surreal or fanciful, but I assure you it’s not. It’s a book of pure love like the rest of the Word of God. It promises the next coming of Christ and tells us we can choose to “accept the water of life as a gift” for eternity (Rev. 22:17).
Revelation is the only book in Scripture that promises happiness seen in Chapter 1, Verse 3:
Blessed (happy, prosperous, to be admired) is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and who keep the things which are written in it [heeding them and taking them to heart]; for the time [of fulfillment] is near.Revelation 1:3 Amplified Bible
The secrets hidden in Revelation’s symbolism were more easily understood at the time it was written, but we can cull its meaning through modern and personal exegesis. When we begin to understand what Revelation is telling us, we can’t help but see it as a love story. God wants us to return to Him and Revelation is the last call.
The Mysteries of His Love
Throughout Scripture we find mysteries. God’s plan of salvation is a mystery. Suffering and pain, persecution and martyrdom, sin and death are all mysterious subjects in the Word. And it’s a mystery how all of these topics relate to our salvation. This is where we need Holy Spirit to shine the light in the Word for us and where we need to have faith by trusting God has a plan and He’s working on it in our lives.
Because He loves us.
