When most Christians see ‘666’ they think of the Illuminati or the Pope or some or other person secret organisation that this could be referring to. There are so many different characters who could fit the 666 bill, but we want to debunk all of that and bring in Biblical truth. The Illuminati don’t feature in Scripture but only in fiction and imagination.
The key issue of the book of Revelation is the interim period between the first coming of Jesus and His second coming. The first coming is all about Jesus, the Lamb of God, dying on the cross and becoming our sacrifice for sin. Through Him and in Him we are able to face the second coming without there being a punishment for our sin. For believers in Jesus, this second coming will be a time of reward. But if you have not received the sacrifice of the Lamb, you are going to have to endure the wrath of the Lamb at the second coming.
Revelation shows us, in real terms, the difficulties of life. We see this as we look at the context it was written in. The systems of this world bite us, chew us and spit us out. So how do we live in the present time before the second coming, which we are calling the Gospel Age? That’s the question this book is answering.
