  • There are many interpretations of the Book of Revelation

    The word “Revelation” translates the Greek word apokaplypsis, which is an unveiling or disclosing of reality that previously has not perceived. This apocalypse came from God through Jesus Christ, whose past, present and future position and work makes up the content of the revelation communicated to John by an angel (22:16). The purpose of this book is to show his servants what must take place between the first and second coming of Jesus. The entire message is to be signified (said through signs).
