One book of the Bible that I have read through, but not really taken the time to study is the book of Revelation. Many books have been written on the topic, many theories expounded, and countless prophecies misinterpreted by well-meaning folk. A small group I attend on Wednesday nights has recently undertaken a study in Revelation following a series of teachings by Pastor Levi Lusko of Fresh Life Church in Montana. I expect this study to take a few months to complete at the speed in which we shall endeavor to digest it, so look for the occasional post (perhaps weekly ) as I take tidbits of information from it.
Revelation, believed by a majority of scholars to be authored by John the Apostle, begins and ends with a blessing to those who read it (provided they do not add or take away from it). In the first chapter: Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. -Revelation 1:3 At the end: Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. -Revelation 22:14
