Revelation - Anticipating Jesus' Return

Honestly, Revelation is my favorite book in the bible. Of course, I love the whole Bible and can give you a list of some of my favorites, but to me, Revelation is special in the fact that it is the only book in the bible that has not happened yet, it is unfulfilled prophecy. Revelation is often not read in churches or when asking other Christians, it is something scary, so they avoid it. But there are many reasons we need to read, study, and discuss this important book, and as Christians, we should find hope, joy, and excitement at the anticipation of what is to come for those who are saved. Here are 4 reasons to study Revelation.

1. Blessings

The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending His angel to His servant John, who testifies to everything he saw—that is, the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near. - Revelation 1:1-3

Reading and listening to Revelation is one of the blessings we are given. This book is extremely important, and God holds us accountable for either listening to Him and gaining wisdom from it or ignoring it and removing it from our minds/hearts. Many Christians are misinformed about Revelation and the meanings this book provides. They say it is a frightening book they want to avoid, but God has told us to read aloud the words and treasure it in our hearts. First, it is God's gift to us to inform us what is to come, to give us hope and anticipation of the life we will have with Him for eternity. Second, it is God's goodness to warn us about what will take place if we reject His sacrifice for our sins. Third, it is God's power to show us how great and holy He is and how He is to be honored, praised,
