After abducting and torturing a young man named Daniel (Tom Long), the three strange antagonists of BOOK OF REVELATION drop his broken body at the edge of the city. Why don’t most Christians know the pertinent truths and empowering realities the book of Revelation teaches? Why is there so much confusion, controversy, and conflict among Christians and churches over this book—which reveals Jesus Christ as He is today?
Why can’t a typical, ordinary layperson study this prophecy and trust the Holy Spirit to guide him or her into its truths? Yet the #1 reason why most people, and for centuries and today as well, have misread, misunderstood, and mis-taught the prophecy of the book of Revelation is because they have failed to place it in its divinely determined context before they try to interpret and understand it. 3 “An Exegetical Basis for a Preterist-Idealist Understanding of the Book of Revelation,” article in Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, Vol.
John left Jerusalem because of the warning, moved to Ephesus, taken prisoner, boiled in Oil, sent to Patmos, and later released, had two disciples, Polycarp, Papias.
This “late date” view of the writing of the Book of Revelation is strongly and effectively contested by some notable scholars. For even more on this, see on this site my theological paper published in the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society and titled, “An exegetical Basis for a Preterist-Idealist Understanding of the Book of Revelation.” It provides even more support and reference sources in this regard. The only Truth is what is written, My Word is Spirit, to him that hears and keeps, believes as the Word has said; it all written to the candlestick, those lights of Christ. If you were downtown and looked across the street over the parked cars and saw someone you knew rushing intently to push a little old lady over, what would you think of that person? And this is one of the biggest problems with how people approach the Book of Revelation: the historical background to the Book is unknown to most readers. If a student of the Book of Revelation (i) ignores the historical context of the book, (ii) assumes that it is describing the end of the world (an expression no where found in the Book itself) - it will inevitably lead to some wild speculation about what this book means. I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

The Book of Revelation was not written to an English-speaking Church living in Western affluence. I have written a fuller explanation of the book of Revelation in my eBook- THE MOST EMBARRASSING BOOK IN THE BIBLE (click here to read a preview). As Daniel regains consciousness, he vows to uncover the identities of his tormentors, but his quest to find them turns into a surreal sexual adventure.
Consequently, they lift it out of its context, stretch it like a rubber band—1900 years and counting—plop it down out in the future, and create a pretext.
Therefore, by recognizing and honoring the divinely determined time and nature context this book of prophecy places upon itself, we can be better assured of grasping its true message and meaning and unlocking its wisdom and promised blessings, here and now. Argument only proves division, submit to Christ as He reveals Himself in each of us, the book is about the destruction of man, each man, to bring about the Christ in you. Would your opinion of this person change if you later discovered that the cars you were looking over obscured your view of this person actually pushing this little old lady out of the way of a speeding sports car which was hurtling towards her and about to hit her?
They have their understanding of the Book of Revelation obscured by their lack of understanding about history, Biblical language, and even modern opinions. History reveals that this speculation has brought much discredit to the cause of promoting Christ and His infallble Word when well-meaning (but mistaken) people make bold claims that the Book of Revelation predicts the fortunes of their own nation in their own day.
It was written to a First Century Church undergoing intense tribulation and wondering whether their faith in Christ had been in vain.
For example, one of the first assumptions that those who employ sound hermeneutics use is, treat any Biblical book as if it was written to someone else. The Book of Revelation not only does not make this claim, it actually claims to be speaking to a first century audience within the existing Roman Empire. Without understanding the overall context of the Bible, it is impossible to understand the Book of Revelation.
Just as there are lessons for the modern Church from any New Testament book, there are some powerful lessons for today from this ancient book.

Location!” In a similar fashion, what do you think are the three most important factors or rules for properly understanding the meaning of any piece of literature, including the Bible? These two sources are consistently referred to throughout Revelation- Beast and the False Prophet, Beast from across the sea and the Beast of the Land, the Seven Headed Beast and the Mother of Prostitutes. We are told in Revelation 6 that there were many martyrs who had been killed for following Christ.
But this presents a problem to the modern reader since we are at least two thousand years removed from the original audience.
For example, in Revelation 17 it describes a great prostitute who is curiously dressed in the exact fashion described in Exodus 29 yet with deliberately different embossed wording. If we fail to address these problems when interpretting the Book of Revelation, we are doomed to commit the same errors that have plagued the history of Revelation's interpretation. Failure to appreciate the Old Testament will cause the reader to miss this connection and then fail to get the point of what the author is trying to say.
It looked to many believers that the Church would be conquered by this unrelenting persecution. But John's visions of Christ's Revelation, reassured the suffering Church that Jesus was indeed Lord, and that He would indeed conquer. Thus, while the nature of the term apocalyptic is certainly symbolic, certainly prophetic, and certainly about the ending of something, but it is not necessarily (if at all) about the end of the world.
