Revelation is the book of the Bible for looking into our future. Many people feel intimidated when they read it. But they shouldn’t be. God gave it to us to reveal the future to us. God wanted us to be aware of wickedness and righteousness in order to make the right choices. He gave it so we wouldn’t feel intimidated. God gave John the revelation to “show His servants what must soon take place.” “What you have seen, what is now and what will take place later.” Revelation 1:1, 19. That sums it up. From John’s day to ours, it is to be a blessing to those who not only read it, but also “hear it and take it to heart”. Revelation 1:3. To show you how easy Revelation is to understand, we are going to start with chapter 12. Revelation, like Daniel, is heavily steeped in symbolism. It is easy to understand when you let the Bible explain itself. Then like Daniel, just let history do its job. We start with a woman clothed with the sun, moon and stars. Woman in the Bible is used to represent a church. The church can be a pure, virgin woman as the bride of Christ, or a wicked adulterous church who has rebelled against God.
