revelations

It’s hard for us who live in the West twenty centuries later to appreciate the
meaning of the Book of Revelation.
Our first tendency is to simply plug what we read into our own experiences
without rolling up our sleeves, getting down on our knees,
and trying to understand what it meant back then.

The Book of Revelation has not only a past fulfillment but also an ongoing
fulfillment throughout Christian history.
The fulfillments can be multiple, ever-increasing, escalating, and enlarging.
At some point in the future there will be an even more magnificent
fulfillment of Revelation than there was back in 70 AD.

  2. Interesting, Julie! We can be such doomsday addicts. Not just Christians either! I’ve decided we just really like drama and a good action adventure movie where we get to be the hero. Myself, I really believe in abiding panism. That’s the eschatological theory that it’s all going to “pan” out in the end. God’s got this thing.

    • I found the quotes interesting as well— how we plug our experiences into things swirling around us forgetting both the past and future—
      I think we’re a Henny Penny lot myself— oh that falling sky!!!!
