To Him be Glory and Dominion
Verse: Revelation 1:1–1:8
Why is Revelation so hard to understand? Why is there so much confusion and controversy with this book? The confusion and controversy arise when we start in the wrong place. If we start out by trying to understand all the details, we’re going to get into trouble. We have to keep our focus on the big picture. We have to stay focussed on the main point. So what is the main point of Revelation? Here it is: God is the Sovereign Ruler of history and he will bring it all to its consummation in Christ for the eternal good of his people.
