Readings from Revelation

The book of Revelation (or, the Apocalypse) is an account of a vision which John (probably the apostle) had about things to come. It was sent to seven churches in the Roman province of Asia. It contains strange imagery with symbolic colors and numbers. The main point is that people should persevere because God will win in the end.

Read the following from Revelation:

1:9-19  the vision on the Lord's day

2:1-7  the letter to the church at Ephesus
     v. 4--left your first love

3:14-22  the letter to the church at Laodicea
     v. 15-16--neither cold nor hot, but lukewarm

6:1-8  the four horsemen

12:1-17  the battle in heaven

20:1-6  the thousand years

20:11-15  the final judgment

21:1-14  the new Jerusalem

22:17-20  the invitation and the warnings

SUGGESTION: To get the most out of Revelation, block off a time (two or three hours) that it would take you to read it in one sitting, and read it all the way through, as if listening to a dream that someone was telling you about.
