The Book of Revelation is considered by many to be the most exciting book of prophecy in the
Bible. The last book in the Bible reminds us that Jesus is coming again, pointing us toward
a future hope. Prophecy is not written to scare us. It is written to prepare us — to be ready for
the One who is indeed coming again.
Dr. Ed Hindson* summarizes Revelation in seven simple points:
The Preface — the risen Christ appears to John on the Island of Patmos and commissions him to write the book (Chapter 1).
The Proclamation — the letters to the seven churches of Asia Minor (Chapters 2 and 3).
The Problem — the seven-sealed scroll that must be opened,
and the judgments pronounced (Chapters 4 and 5).
The Process — judgment; the opening of the seven seals,
the sounding of the seven trumpets (Chapters 6-11).
The Players — those in the end times drama are listed in
the middle of the book (Chapters 12 and 13).
The seven last Plagues — (Chapters 14-19)
the bowls of divine wrath.
The final Postscript — (Chapters 20-22)
the Millennial Kingdom and the New Jerusalem.
