I believe that Revelation is primarily describing events Christians will experience PRIOR to the return of Jesus. 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.

Warning to Christians: You may be here for the duration! Matthew 13:24-40
What the parable of the wheat and tares may be telling us about the end times and what we can expect to experience as we wait for the return of Jesus
The three accounts of the return of Jesus in the Book of Revelation.
This post provides supports for my contention that there are three different accounts in the Book of Revelation of the return of Jesus and the events that precede it.
Why the parable of the thief coming in the night may be a warning to Christians – Matthew 24:42-44
Jesus’ return, like the coming of a thief in the night, may not be good news for Christians who are unprepared for it.
Three things that must happen before Jesus returns: Matthew 23:37-39; Matthew 24:14; 2 Thessalonians 2:3
Although there are many things that will happen before Jesus returns, there are three things that must happen. This post notes what those three things are.
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.
Jesus’ return will be visible to everyone: Matthew 24:1-30 and Luke 21:5-28
This article summarizes my understanding of Jesus’ discourse regarding the end times recorded in Matthew 24 and Luke 21. My conclusion based on this and a future article I intend to write is that Jesus returns only once and that when He does, the results will be immediate and dire for those unprepared.
