Could Revelation be describing events that are already taking place?

I believe that Revelation is for the most part describing events Christians have experienced or will experience prior to the return of Jesus. Some of these may be taking place today. This post explains how knowing this can help in understanding the urgency of John’s plea to read, hear, and take to heart what is revealed in this enigmatic book.

When Jesus returns, it won’t be Christians who are taken away: Matthew 24:36-41

This article discusses why I believe that those “taken” or “taken away” when Jesus’ returns will be nonbelievers – those who have not made a personal commitment to follow Jesus – and why those “left” or “left behind” will be Christians – those who are followers of Jesus.

What the two or three coming together in Jesus’ name must do if they want Jesus to be with them – Matthew 18:20

What did Jesus mean when He said, “Where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them (Matthew 18:20)?” Was this a promise that He would be with us when we pray in groups? Is final verse in a set of instruction regarding how to discipline someone in our churches? Or did Jesus have something else in mind when He spoke these words? This article gives an account of my journey from confusion to understanding regarding the context of this verse and what Jesus may have been telling us, at least as I see it today.
