The title of this book tells us, that it is the Revelation of John. And John tells us in the first verse, that it is "The Revelation of Jesus Christ " It is Christ's Revelation to John-and John's Revelation to us. The command of this book is set forth: "Write what you have seen, what is, and what will take place after this." Revelation 1:19. Into these two parts, this book is divided. First, A revelation of the things that referred to the seven churches of Asia. Secondly, A revelation of the general state of the church to come, and from John's time unto the second coming of the Lord. The words of this book are the true sayings-of the true God, "These words are trustworthy and true " Revelation 22:6.
