Revelation offers a new way of viewing the world. When humans reject the divine order they misuse creation and thereby break the covenant with creation. The results of the breach of covenant include disease, suffering, famine and deprivation.Revelation is the unfolding of the significance of the cross through the witness of Jesus given by those who belong to him.The death, resurrection and ascension of the witnesses (the church) identify them as the covenant people of God re-acting the full ministry of Jesus. To each church the message is the same: believers can only enter the new Jerusalem by faithfulness unto death. Evil, conquered by the cross, will finally be eliminated from human experience. New covenant believers will therefore experience the divine purpose and provision of life in a new Eden.
