HISTORICAL UNDERPINNINGS WITH FUTURISTIC IMPLICATIONS
The book of Revelation has been a source of encouragement for God's people throughout church history. It is the story of how God triumphs over evil. Whatever difficult circumstances may be happening in the present, in the end, God wins and will always win.Revelation is not an easy book to understand. The apocalyptic genre combined with an epistoloc narrative and a prohetic outlook makes interpreting this book difficult at times. And yet Revelation is a book filled with rich meaning, deep encouragment, and future hope for believers who endure difficult times in the face of evil, persecution, and sufferings.
Revelation is a book of historical underpinnings with futuristic implications and reveals that history will repeat itself, ending with the final attack of evil on God's people through the Antichrist and his evil regime. In the end, God wins and those with him win.
