While the Book of Revelation is primarily about the future, it is the most Old Testament oriented book in the New Testament. This means that it brings together the completion of God’s plan for history, as begun in the Old Testament. Truly Revelation is the capstone of Scripture. Revelation reveals a satisfactory conclusion to the many events introduced in Genesis.
It is said that you need to know where you came from (Genesis) and where you are going. Revelation tells us the destiny of the heavens and the earth. Revelation also reveals the personal destinies for individuals. Knowledge of this information provides meaning and purpose in the lives of individuals when they learn where they fit into God’s overall plan for the universe.
Seventy percent of the Book of Revelation is about the seven-year period of time known as the Tribulation. Learn an in-depth profile about that period that will take place after the rapture, which ends our current church age. We can see the key players, mindset, and nations already being prepared in our own day. God is setting the stage for the next phase of history that is foretold in the Book of Revelation.
