In this Bible Study episode, Pastors Nathanael Mayhew and Rob Sauers dig into the complex and comforting book of Revelation. This last book of the New Testament was written by the Apostle John in the 90's AD while he was exiled on an island called Patmos. Here he writes to seven churches of the early church describing for them the visions which the Lord Jesus gave him to assure and comfort His church, both then and now. The book of Revelation is a symbolic book as John states clearly in the very first verses, so these are not literal events, but symbolic descriptions of what would take place in the furture. See our next Revelation podcast on the interpratation of the book for more information on this topic. The main message of the book is to show how God, in Christ, has defeated death and the Devil and to comfort the troubled child of God with the hope of salvation in and through Christ. Christ calls us to take comfort and to endure knowing that He is our strength and our redeemer!
