Despite your citizenship, you find you disagree with the personal morality and lack of virtue exemplified in the leader of your country. Further, you find your beliefs ridiculed and you are politically discriminated against because of your allegiance to Christ. Sound familiar? In first-century Roman countries, Christians found themselves in this very situation. Oppressed by Caesar and intimidated into worshiping him by force, believers needed a promise of deliverance from evil. Enter John, disciple of Jesus, to whom God revealed this promise in a vision. And John recorded this vision, which to this day is called "Revelation," or literally, the "unveiling." In the murky moral atmosphere and evil of our day, the believer who opens the Book of the Ages and turns to the "final chapter" can witness John's account of the unveiling of Jesus Christ in victory and triumph.
