"We must be well-grounded in plain truths and duties, and those must first be well-digested, before we dive into those things that are dark and difficult -- many run themselves into confusion by beginning their Bible at the wrong end." - Matthew Henry
This is an overview of the book of Revelation and a guide to its interpretation. The approach is likely not one you have heard before.
What you think the book of Revelation teaches and when you think it was written determines how you live your life - are we to conquer the world for Christ or tread water until He rescues us on the last day? - and what you think the headlines mean. Do events in the Middle East prove we are on the brink of the end times? Is Antichrist about to be revealed? Is Armageddon around the corner?
This generation of Christians has been taught Futurism; that most of Revelation describes end-time events.
Futurism is a late 16th century Roman Catholic invention that was crafted to defend the Papacy against the claims of the Protestant Reformation. Sadly, most fundamentalists and evangelicals are unknowingly parroting Roman Catholic propaganda.
The historic Protestant view is that Revelation is a panorama of world history from the first century to the end of time. It reveals the rise and fall of nations, of Romanism, Islam, the Protestant Reformation, a future New World Order of one civil government and religion imposed upon the world. But it also reveals the final triumph of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Christianization of all nations BEFORE the end of history.
Please listen to all the sermons in this series to understand the historic Protestant view of the book of Revelation.
Great Sermon! This is my first time to study on my own this most amazing book.I am excited to learn what the Lord will teach me.
Thank you for the wonderful introduction. I am with John Calvin and the Puritans in their interpretation.
Praise God for preachers like your self.

Footsteps of the Messiah I cant see how you claim to let the book speak for itself when you summarise that the various judegments are a restatement of the previous set of judgements. Surely that is as glaring example of reading into the text what you want - about as bad as some of the examples of interpretation of who the Antichrist is. Can I encourage you read 'Footsteps of the Messiah' by A. Fructenbaum. I think that does what you claim to do. Regards D.
Great Sermon! Correction: should have read Berean and not "Bertrand."
Great Sermon! Good, very good and consoling.
Drives people of nobility to study as the Bertrand did.
