Revelation 6- 12- Watch a great review of what we have read so far!

At this point, you might be getting anxious reading John's vision or you are getting very confused.  Perhaps, like me, you are excited!!

Through the many times I have read Revelation, I have gone through different teachings and discovered the many different ways people interpret Revelation. There is predominant teaching in our US Christian culture today that became very popular from the Left Behind book series published in 1995.  The thought is that there will be a rapture of believers at an unknown time. With Christians out of the way, all the plagues of the seals, trumpets, and bowls will occur in chronological order in a 7 year period. During that time there will be new converts to Christianity. Christ will then return and rule for 1000 years only to then have to once again engage in battle and finally defeat Satan and Satan's followers.   At the end of the 1000 years will be the judgment of all mankind.

I have had a very hard time with that interpretation of Scripture because it teaches something very different from what the original apostles believed and taught.  So, my search for different schools of thought on Revelation continued.  I have read some interesting books that have helped me form a conclusion that sits right with me in accordance with scripture.

A friend told me about a video she saw that gave a good summary of Revelation. I watched it and was amazed at how well it put into words how I have come to understand the Scriptures.  I simply can not write it as concisely and perfectly as this video clip does, so I thought I would include the link and let you take a look if you so desire.  It is about 12 minutes long.  I would love to hear your thoughts!
