How many of us have read or tried to read the book of
Revelation? Did you find Revelation to be an easy or a challenging
read? Most of us, including myself, find Revelation to be a
challenging read, yet a blessing is promised to anyone who reads
and heeds this book.
What makes Revelation so challenging? It is challenging because of the way in which God communicated His message. As you know, if you've read even just a portion of Revelation, God communicated His message using a lot of symbols. Revelation is not the only book full of symbols; God also used a lot of symbols in the Old Testament books of Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel and Zechariah. In fact, as we will discover, many of the symbols used in these Old Testament books will be employed by God in Revelation.
