Revelation is a book about the future and about the present. It offers future hope to all believers, especially those who have suffered for their faith. Revelation proclaims Christ's total triumph over evil and the reality of eternal life with him. It also gives guidance for the present as it teaches us about Jesus Christt and how we should live for him now. Through graphic word pictures we learn that Jesus Christ is coming again, that the forces of evil will be judged, and that the dead will be raised to judgment, headed for either eternal life or eternal destruction. As you read Revelation, look beyond the symbols to your sovereign God and to your Savior, Jesus Christ. And take hope - his victory is sure!
