The Book of Revelation Explained in Under 5 Minutes

what is the book of Revelation all about

stick around and find out today on the

beat hey what's up everybody my name is

Alan Parr thank you all so much for

visiting my channel today we are talking

about the book of Revelation a book that

has many many different interpretations

a book that many Christians avoid

reading and some are actually afraid of

reading it but today I want to take you

through a Sevenfold chronological

journey through the book of Revelation

and the first thing we need to look at

is the background the name of the book

comes from the very first verse which

says the revelation of Jesus Christ

which lets us know that this book is

about the unveiling or the uncovering of

the person the plan and the power of one

man named Jesus Christ it was written in

95 AD by a man named the Apostle John

who also wrote the Gospel of John and

the 1st 2nd and 3rd letters of John

second of all we have revelation

chapters 2 and 3 where Jesus writes

seven letters to seven churches that

were located in Asia Minor in each one

of these letters consists of or exposes

or deals with a particular sin that was

going on in the churches at that time

but it applies to all churches

throughout all history and these two

chapters represent the current church

age in which we are living in today next

we have what's called the tribulation

and this covers the bulk of the book of

Revelation chapters 6 through 19 and

this refers to a seven-year period where

by which the church has been now

raptured and taken away from the earth

to be with God in heaven and those who

have been left behind have been

graciously given another opportunity to

accept Jesus Christ as their Savior but

the catch is that it will be very

difficult to be a Christian during these

seven years because the church and all

spiritual influence has been removed

leaving nothing but wickedness wrath and

chaos behind now the last three and a

half years of this seven-year period is

what scholars are calling the great

tribulation and things are going to get

you know bad it's going to have Sun

scorching people's skin it's going to

have water that you can drink sores on

people's skin and it is going to be

increasingly more difficult to say that

you are a Christian during this last

three and a half years of the

tribulation and so after the seven years

of tribulation are ended the Bible says

that the next event will be what's

called the Battle of Armageddon and I

hesitate to call it a battle because

Jesus and all of his armies which

includes you and I we are going to

totally and completely destroy Satan and

his armies and the Bible says that after

this battle that Satan will be bound for

a thousand years next we have what is

called the Millennial Kingdom and this

is the actual second coming of Jesus

Christ and it will be a 1000 year period

whereby Jesus sets up a literal Kingdom

here on earth and every Christian who

has ever believed in Jesus Christ

throughout all time will also rule and

reign with Jesus Christ on earth and it

will be a time that will be

characterized by righteousness peace and

joy and holiness because Satan and all

of his demonic influence will be bound

and so six we have the judgments and so

after the 1,000 years have ended Satan

and his whole demonic crew will be cast

into the lake of fire and then every

single non-believer throughout the

history of time will stand before God in

what is called the great white throne

judgment and they will give an account

for their sins and then they will also

be cast into the lake of fire to spend

eternity apart from God and number seven

is the good news and that's the fact

that God will create a new heaven and a

new earth interestingly enough there are

only four chapters in the entire Bible

where there is a perfect environment

Genesis chapters 1 and 2 and Revelation

chapters 21 and 22 and so what we see

here is that God's perfect amazing story

coming full circle whereby God

reestablishes the perfect environment

that he had intended at creation and the

reason for this is because the earth in

which we currently live in is not fit

for eternity because it's decaying every

day so God is going to do away with this

earth is going to burn it with fire it

is going to create a new heaven and a

new earth

where we can dwell with him throughout

all eternity and so I hope this short

video will whet your appetite and

encourage you to study the book of

Revelation and see the awesome plan that

God has for the future and most

importantly that this book will give us

as Christians comfort and knowing that

no matter how crazy things get on earth

that God was is and always will be in

complete control of human history if you
