Revelation study

The book of Revelation is the unveiling of our Lord Jesus Christ in His risen glory. It reveals our Kinsman Redeemer for Jew and Gentile believers alike. It is also about the fulfillment of His plan for Israel as well as the nations and peoples of this world. The book of Revelation shows Jesus Christ as having all authority over His Church, over judgment, and over Satan and his hosts. Jesus Christ deserves all blessing, glory, thanksgiving, honor, power, might, praise and worship. It is all about JESUS CHRIST!
