Why Do We Have The Book Of Rervelation ? I was not sure how to title this thread so my second title would have been “ Are we becoming Complacent?” Wake up , wake up ---- The fire alarm is sounding . How many times have I been woken up when living in an apartment or nurse’s residence . Oh , just another false alarm . That brings me to the Book of Revelation ….. “ Not just a false alarm “ Even though I can say in all honesty ;it is a book that is still puzzling for me to read. Over time many people have their translations , but God must have put that Book there for a purpose . Do you think it is because God wanted us to have a warning about the future so that we can also anticipate and make adjustments to our life? Or Do you think it is because God wanted us to know about the future and therefore we can’t say “ God you never told us ?” These are just some of my thoughts and I welcome yours . I have studied Revelation , have CD ’s on the book and still find it very hard to understand . Are we becoming complacent towards the things that are unfolding around us or do we sense with anticipation the finality or curtain beginning to close and the entrance of Jesus Christ coming to take us home ? The whole purpose in my mind about “Revelation” is that we need to pass on this urgency to the next generation and not become complacent . Even now as I write this , Lord help me not to be complacent about your coming . Help me to live each day as if it were my last . In Your name the name of Jesus . Amen . What makes Revelation so exciting is to know that God is bringing an end to evil and is preparing a new city of peace for His chosen people . Rev. 8:12 -13 ….. 12The fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them turned dark. A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night. 13As I watched, I heard an eagle that was flying in midair call out in a loud voice: "Woe! Woe! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the trumpet blasts about to be sounded by the other three angels!"
