Do you believe the book of Revelation is about the end of the world?

Or do you have a different interpretation?

  • Revelation is the telling of the church about things that are going to happen --during their time, not ours. Rome was going to destroy the temple. It was to encourage them to be faithful during that time. The lessons behind it all, to persevere and take care of one another, are for us.

  • Yep, I do believe it's about the end of the world...

    I also believe it's pure fiction...

  • Yes I do :). Revelation brings together the worlds of heaven, earth, and hell in a final confrontation between the forces of good and evil.

  • yes, I do. I also see all bible prophesy coming true. For example, the gate in Jerusalem that Jesus was brought through after being arrested was the Sheep Gate, which is significant because Jesus was the Passover lamb. That gate is now called the Lion's gate which is significant because when Jesus returns to defeat Antichrist, He will enter through that gate as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. I think that is very interesting.

  • My interpretation is that, if John of Patmos existed at all, he was high on some kind of wacky weed when he wrote Revelations. The imagery is just like the LSD trips I used to hear described on television talk shows in the 70's and 80's. It is fantastical and unrealistic. Hebrew priests and prophets often used mushrooms and other halucinogenic botanicals to enable themselves to "commune" with god. And, if the biblical scholars are correct, the "predictions" in Revelations aren't about our future at all, but about John's present at that time.

  • Nope. I believe it is nothing more or nothing less then one guys bad dream after listening to too many different people talk about the "end of days."

  • Nope. I think someone had a bad acid trip and wrote it down.
