Any Christian Pastors, Teachers or Apologists that can explain The Book Of The Revelation Of Jesus Christ?

Revelation tends to scare some Christians. Is there someone who can explain it so that it is not so intimidating?

Update:

Edit: I am referring to the entire book.

    Senior Pastor David Jeremiah, IMHO, explains The Book Of Revelation better than anyone that I have heard. It is crystal clear and understandable. If you can find him on Christian radio his program is called "Turning Point". He is currently talking about The Book Of Revelation. He has authored a book called "Escape The Coming Night". +++"Escape the Coming Night.

    The warnings are posted today. THIN ICE AHEAD. Our eternal destiny is

    determined by whether we heed the signs or ignore them. Rescuers may

    want to save us but it could be too late. The final days for all of the inhabitants

    of planet earth have been recorded for almost two thousand years. In

    our time, those signs are becoming closer and bolder.

    Warnings have been posted about dangers ahead. We can either watch and

    listen or ignore them. The Book of Revelation predicts the climax of the

    ages and the sequence of events leading up to the return of Jesus Christ.

    Are you listening today to the warnings from the mountain of evidence in

    front of us? You can't afford to be unprepared." 2 Timothy 2 (Amplified Bible)

    15Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analyzing and accurately dividing [rightly handling and skillfully teaching] the Word of Truth.

    Born-again Christians are not afraid of it.

    The Book of the Revelation of John, usually referred to simply as Revelation or the Book of Revelation, is the last book of the New Testament. It is also called the Apocalypse of John. Apocalypse, from the Greek, is a synonym for "Revelation", but also from it comes the name for the type of literature; an "apocalypse" is a work of apocalyptic literature. John's is the only book in the Canon that is wholly composed of apocalyptic literature.

    Revelation is a cryptic document which has been interpreted in many ways. Most of the interpretations fall into one or more of the following categories: the Historicist, which sees in Revelation a broad view of history; the Preterist, in which Revelation mostly refers to the events of the apostolic era (first century); the Futurist, which believes that Revelation describes future events; and the Idealist, or Symbolic, which holds that Revelation is purely symbolic, an allegory of the spiritual path and the ongoing struggle between good and evil. These approaches are by no means mutually exclusive, and can be (and usually are) used in combination with each other.

    I can explain it, but it has a lot in it. I'll say this, After the first 3 chapters about the 7 churches, the rest is concerning the 7 year tribulation period, when the Antichrist will be revealed. In the middle of the 7 years, he will break his peace treaty, and declare himself God, and demand that all the world worship him. Whoever doesn't not receive his mark in their right hand or forehead will be killed. Whoever does receive his mark, they will spend eternity in the lake of fire and brimstone, and be tormented forever and ever ( see Revelation 14:9-11 and 20:10-15 ). It is best to receive Jesus as Lord and Savior now, because there will be a strong delusion to believe a lie, as 2 Thessalonians 2:8-12 says. Romans 10:9-10 is the way to be born again, before the great tribulation comes.

    In harmony with Genesis to Jude, 65 bible books, how is it that

    Revelation the 66th book does not explain itself, the books have

    been made available to the world 399 years as the KJV Bible

    for our Modern times, was there 12 tribes of Israel? When in

    time did they began? What was their purpose? Was there 12

    apostles? How long has Satan been around? Will the kingdoms

    of the earth become the kingdoms of our Lord and Savior Jesus

    Christ. Rev.11:15,18. Then is Satan still in heaven? Rev.12:7-12.

    Is Miachel in the time of the end? Dan.12:1-13; Matt.24:3,7,14,

    15, 21-24, 34, 36; If Satan is cast down at the end of 7, to be

    down all of the 8th that is of the 7, Rev.17:5,6,10-14; What is

    his short time down from Rev.12:7-12 to Rev.20:1-6.

    There are the tribulation survivors, Rev.7:9-17;

    Rev.9:1-5(5x 30 =) 150, the pit is open for Satan, God's sealed

    are there.

    The resurrection goes back to Abel, Heb.12:22-24; Able died

    year 130, does the bible support 6000 more years to Rev.20:

    1-6, the 1000 year reign of Christ that ends with all made as

    new as God meant it to stay from the start. Rev.21:1-5.

    Rev.22:14; How long has it been since the tree of life was

    there?

    How long has it been since Satan/serpent/devil was in Eden,

    Rev.20:2,7-10, to after the 1000 year reign of Christ when he

    is no more?

    Peace be to this house (Luke 10:5)

    The book of Revelation is a heavenly view of things concerning the earth.

    80 percent of the things in the book of Revelation have already happened.

    World War II is the scariest thing to happen caused by men, and it is the scariest thing that will ever happen caused by men. There will be no WW III.

    All things that happen from this point on will be caused by the Serpent, until the last days.

    There will be economic upheavals a change of superpowers and the rich nations will become poor.

    Many will die of disease and pestilence and natural disasters, lack of water and food.

    In the year 2520 will come much suffering but most will be dead by then.

    Remember Mary for she anointed Jesus at the hour of His death. (Matthew 26:13)

    Yes....Joncourson.com all studies are on the web sight and are free. He believes the bible is the authoritative word of God and does not spiritualize the text. Rev is not a new concept to the bible but further information that is already spoken of in the Old testament. try a couple of his studies and you will find yourself going back to Daniel, isaiah, Genesis and all where many of these things are already mentioned. This is too short a space to attempt to explain it here, but God does have a program for Israel and one for the church, the 70 weeks of daniel is critical to understand. This study will take you through the teachings on the rapture, the millenium , the end of the age and the beginning of the eternal state. Remember jesus said of these times to not be afraid, dismayed or deceived that when you begin to see these things take place look up your redemption draws near...there is more prophecy about the 2nd coming and millenium then there was about the first coming..Paul says do not be ignorant about these things, so we can know and understand..i hope you give it a try...

    the guy above me is right David Jeremiah is good too

    Sure can try. For the true believe in Christ, they are taken off the earth prior to most of what occurs as depicted in Revelation. We are considered to be "the church" and no reference of that can be found after chapter 4. Plus, there are verses that talk of the (rapture) taking out of the saints prior to the tribulation. There are also verses that show us returning WITH Christ at the end of the tribulation. If we haven't gone ahead of time, that wouldn't be possible.

    Revelation explains itself pretty much right after it makes a statement, so keep reading. You are blessed by studying it also. It's segmented into what was, what is, and what is yet to come. The report of the churches are of real churches that existed in John's day, but also mephorically to the way of believers through time. The last two church behaviors are depicting us today.

    The main emphasis is this: Believers are taken off the earth and taken to heaven where we receive our rewards with regards to following Christ(not for salvation.) Once the church is removed from earth, the New World Order begins, with their key leader. He signs a peace treaty with Israel, in their new temple: a 7 year peace treaty. But halfway through (3 1/2 year mark) he renegs on it. He demands that he be the one who is worshipped. Those who follow take a mark so they can buy and sell, to be able to live. (The mark of the beast) They are the ones who have paid tribute to the new world ruler, and will be damned to hell with satan. But there are those who God set aside (144,000 male jews) protected, to preach Christ and there are those who accept Christ during this time, rejecting the new world leader.

    The whole world hates the Jews, you know, and this is part of prophesy as well. The countries to the north (China and Russia) come down to fight for the land and to anihilate the jews. Others countries as well come to that land ... they are battling it out (God protecting Israel) when Christ returns and finishes the argument/war. (Battle of Armaggedon.) He sets up His Kingdom on earth for 1000 years, with believers ruling with/under Him.

    Well, that's it in a nutshell.

    If you believe with all your heart, and do what is God's will you will see that it is not as intimidating as you first thought. There is also lovely promises to God's children. More scary for those who do not believe. It is the end of time as we know it and the return of Jesus to come and fetch all God's children. Also the punishment for not believing

    The revelation of Jesus Christ given to John by the will of the Father is not correctly termed. If indeed it is understood to be revelations or as a whole revelation with tagging the name of Jesus Christ on the heels of it than one should then understand that the will of the Father was given to Jesus Christ to be given to Christ to be revealed to His servants to through His servant John, those things that should shortly come to pass, John 16: 13...verse 13 " and He shall show you things to come"

    Now if you really want to read of the revelation of Jesus Christ in that John 16: 13 -15...verse 13 ..."He shall guide you into all truth"... and verse 14 "He shall glorify me; for He shall take of mine and show to you"... in other wards the Spirit will take the things that belong to Christ and show them to them who are in Christ, verse 14-15 And for the purpose of being conformed to the image of the Son of God as pertaining to the spirit and the soul, Romans 8: 28-30 2 Corinthians 2: 6-8, Ephesians 4: 13

    Now to answer your posted question; God speaks from the standpoint of His understanding, and when we read it with our intellect and smartness we impute allegories and symbolism and figuratively speaking which are a very poor position, to be in, which should not be trusted unless one likes the position the superfluity of mind are in.

    The mind was not made to have the capacity to know the things of God apart from the Spirit of God, and when one attempts to step out with the thought that he can, is superfluity of naughtiness, James 1: 21. But to them who humble themselves with meekness hear and receive the en grafted word which speaks of the Ministry of the Holy Spirit and is with them who are in Christ,

    It's our future. It's the end of the church age and the beginning of Jesus' eternal kingdom. Jesus will return to judge the world and separate the wheat from the chaff for ALL eternity.
