Can it Be Good?
The word apocalypse means “revelation,” which is “to uncover, reveal.” The book of Revelation is profound in what it reveals to us about God, ourselves and all humanity. Unfortunately, it has also come to mean doom and gloom, leading to anxiety, tension, and controversy. There is no doubt that, as we walk through Revelation, we will experience some of these responses. But we will also see beauty in the vivid imagery and experience comfort in God’s voice. In His grace, mercy, righteousness and love, God is working to bring about a very bright future!
Revelation can be difficult to understand and thus has been wildly misinterpreted. Let’s approach this series with a humble curiosity and be open to what God wants us to see in Revelation that is relevant for our everyday life.
