    Ripperger is available in this video published on 20 August by Sensus Fidelium. Jones, At the beginning of Revelation, John tells us that while he was on the Isle of Patmos, where he was banished because of his religious faith, he heard a loud voice telling him to write what he saw and then to send the writing to the seven churches in Asia. However, as intensifying persecution led to the imprisonment and martyrdom of the apostles, it eventually became impossible to continue the apostolic succession. Part of why the witness of Revelation is so important and why its neglect has been so harmful is that it presents with great clarity the dynamics of imperial domination—and calls upon followers of Jesus to resist, not to submit. Madsen, Daniel B.

    A lecture with the same title by Fr. When the first seal is opened, there appears a white horse, whose rider goes forth to conquer. Interlude: The little scroll. Strength: The conviction that God controls the course of history.

    Before the opening of the seals is completed, another series of disasters is revealed in the appearance of seven angels, each one carrying a trumpet. This form of revelation constitutes the major part of the text of the Book of Isaiah. Only in regard to the content in which the symbols are used can we determine what the author meant. Symbolic language, however, is one of the chief characteristics of apocalyptic literature, of which this book is an outstanding example.

Revelation and faith book

The message of Revelation was intended for this particular time and set of circumstances. The cries for vengeance on the lips of Christian martyrs that sound so harsh are in fact literary devices the author employed to evoke in the reader and hearer a feeling of horror for apostasy and rebellion that will be severely punished by God.

Peterson, and Stephen D. Available in various formats at Internet Archivewith a second copy here. Two witnesses prophesy for 1, days, clothed in sackcloth.

Three angels appear, the first one announcing that the hour of God's judgment has come, the second one crying out that Babylon, which is used as the symbol of Rome, is fallen, and the third one describing the terrible fate of those who worship the beast or its image.

To further complicate the book of Revelation, John saw visions of both his present world and of events yet to take place in the future.

When they refused to do this, they were tortured and even put to death. As time passed, many Christians — especially those who were suffering persecution at the hands of the Roman government — became deeply concerned about how long it would be before these events would take place.

Weakness: Revelation then has little relevance for its original audience; also, historicists have wildly divergent views concerning the particulars. It was a critical time for the entire Christian movement, and many of its members wondered whether the persecution would ever end, while others were perplexed about the course they should follow.

What follows are "peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning, and an earthquake" Jews and Romans alike resented the fact that Christians condemned so many of the things they were doing, and they especially disliked the belief on the part of Christians that their religion was superior to the older faiths that had been honored for centuries.

Hence, the belief in continuing revelation. Some were even tempted to abandon their faith or at least to make concessions to Rome sufficient to enable them to save their lives.

There is no more suffering or death.

Book of Revelation

This same Dragon worked through King Herod in an attempt to destroy the Christ child as soon as he was born. New York: J. The struggle will eventually reach a climax, at which time God will intervene, destroy the forces of evil, and set up a new order in which the righteous will live for all time to come.

Chapters 6—21 are scenes of this judgment and the end times, with some of the chapters following a sevenfold structure. After a great fight, the Revelation and faith book and his angels are cast out of Heaven for good, followed by praises of victory for God's kingdom.

Though the perspective is eschatological—ultimate salvation and victory are said to take place at the end of the present age when Christ will come in glory at the parousia—the book presents the decisive struggle of Christ and his followers against Satan and his cohorts as already over.

In this view, Revelation is seen as predicting a happy and certain outcome to human history. Other seals are opened, and three more horses — a red one, a black one, and a pale one — appear in rapid succession. He is the Dragon who launched a rebellion against God.

Revelation from a supernatural source is of lesser importance in some other religious traditions, such as Taoism and Confucianism. Ripperger, Ph. This much, however, is certain: symbolic descriptions are not to be taken as literal descriptions, nor is the symbolism meant to be pictured realistically.

The people of the world wonder and follow the Beast. The angel showing John the vision of the Harlot and the scarlet Beast reveals their identities and fates —18 New Babylon is destroyed.
