On
THE BOOK OF REVELATION
OF ST. JOHN

SEAL NOT THE SAYINGS OF THIS BOOK
FOR THE TIME IS AT HAND
Rev.20. v.10

In the Book of Revelation, Christ gives us an introduction to His Return. The main theme in this book is that it is about the last days of the Islámic dispensation and the beginning of the 'Time of Fulfillment'. It introduces us to the fact that all the Prophets are messengers from God, all came for the same purpose, which is to instruct humanity towards a spiritual life and to give guidance for the duration of Their Dispensation.

The Book of Revelation is about not only the return of Christ but the return of all the Prophets of the world’s major religions. Astonishingly to Christians, if they could but recognize it, much of it is about Islám that was to immediately follow Christianity. Because Christians did not accept Muhammad they could not see that meaning in the prophecies of the New Testament any more than Jews were able to recognize the prophecies in the Old Testament about Jesus.

The Book of Revelation is also about the 'Time of the End', or what is often called the 'End of the Age', which is the 'End of the Previous Dispensation'. It is about the 'Time of Fulfillment' and in this case the 'Time of Fulfillment' of all the religions of the world. That is what makes it such an interesting and important book for everyone.

These concepts, which have just been mentioned, of course seem very foreign to the present day thought of most owners and readers of Bibles. For that reason, while there is offered a verse-by-verse explanation of the Book, there are also throughout this book what I have called concept boxes so that one can look at these and get a summation of the idea that is being presented.

When one reads just the commentary side of the explanation they will find that there is a complete and lineal explanation of the Book of Revelation. If they are so inclined they can then look at how this relates, verse by verse to the Book of Revelation itself.
