There is much emotional excitement and abuse pertaining to the Book of Revelation!
In studying Revelation, an intelligent approach is required (cp. 1: 1).
Section one (chapters. 1 - 3):
Introduction and Jesus in the midst of the seven churches. The seven churches each addressed (chapters 2 and 3).
Section two (chapters 4 – 7):
God on the throne (4); search for one worthy to reveal the future (5); beginning of the seven seals (6) and an interlude between the sixth and seventh seal (7).
Section three (chapters 8 -11):
Opening of the seventh seal (8); the two witnesses (11); the measuring of God’s people (11); the sounding of the seventh angel in connection with the seventh seal; and the preliminary vision to the events of chapter twelve.
Section four (chapters 12 – 14):
The vision of the woman with child (12); the introduction of the two beasts (13); the ultimate victory of good over evil (14).
Section five (chapters 15 and 16):
The future is again seen through the seven plagues (15); the angel commissioned to pronounce the plagues; the seven plagues poured out (16).
Section six (chapters 17 – 19):
These chapters describe the fall of Babylon. Some scholars believe that the period covered in chapters 16 through 19 is the same time addressed covered in the seventh plague (16: 17-21).
Section seven (chapters 20 – 22):
The binding of satan, the millennium and satan loosed (20); the vision of the holy city and its description (21); angel’s witness regarding heaven, testimony of Jesus, an invitation and warning, and the last promise and conclusion (22).
It has been said that there are at least four hundred language parallels between Revelation and such books as Daniel, Ezekiel, Isaiah:
Daniel 7: 9, 10 – Rev. 1: 13, 14
Ezekiel 1: 5-10 – Rev. 4: 6, 7 (cp. Rev. 2: 14 and Num. 31: 16; ch. 22; Rev. 22: 2 and Gen. 2: 9).
The promise of Revelation:
“3: Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand” (Rev. 1).
Sameness of teaching:
Revelation 1: 3 – John 13: 17
Revelation 3: 16 – I Corinthians 15: 58
Revelation 5 – Matthew 28: 18
Revelation 14: 13 – 2 Corinthians 5: 17
Revelation 22: 18, 19 – Galatians 1: 6-10
Notwithstanding the fact that Revelation was addressed to the seven churches of Asia, there is much beneficial teaching for us today.
