Although Revelation is said to give a blessing to those who read it and hear it (Revelation 1:3), it often results in confusion as well.

Revelation is applicable to all times and occasions in the Church, and because of that it has been interpreted as predicting many different events in history. Naturally, these interpretations all contradict one another, which leads many believers to decide that the book is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma, and that efforts to understand it are a waste of time.

In fact, however, Revelation is not all that difficult to interpret. It completes the history begun in the book of Acts, and is closely tied to everything else that is going on in the apostolic age. It deals with the end of the Old Creation and the full arrival of the New, and then looks forward to the final return of Jesus and the bodily resurrection at the end of history.

Dr. Jordan is an expert in Biblical symbolism, and this short reader's guide is the fruit of a five-year study in the book of Revelation.

  There Is Hope For the Future
The Pessimist of Clackamas, Oregon, 2/20/2009
This book opens the door for a clearer picture of what Revelations is all about. Jim Jordan has spoke numerous times at our Family Camp and we always enjoyed his insights. We now have a much better outlook on life than thinking the world as we know it is about to end. Instead of getting caught up in politics we can look at the world and it's history from God's perspective. He indeed is in control and governments are just His pawns (see Isaiah ch 7).
