I’ll be honest. The more I read the book of Revelation, the more confused I become.
I understand that this is a book about things to come and I do not doubt that these things will come to pass. However I, like many before me, find myself trying to fit current happenings into the pages of this book.
Don’t get me wrong, I realize that I must be ready at all times, and that no one will know the day or the hour that Christ will return. However, I do not want to add to Scripture by dreaming up what the words may or may not be saying.
For example, I think of the various denominations and the many pastors who I have heard speak from this book. Each one seemingly to have the truth, yet each having a slightly varying account. I understand that they are all more studied than I. Regardless, then how do they get so many pieces of the account misinterpreted in comparison to their colleagues?
Which opinion is correct? Who has the right interpretation? I am certain that one would need to be an expert at ALL Scripture in order to even bridge the surface of Revelation. Even then, one would still need to wait and see some of its words come to life before anything really made sense.
