Tidbits12/6/2019 Dear Friends: The New Testament book of Revelation gives us one of the moststunning, creative and beautiful pictures of Jesus and his kingdom in the entire Bible.  “Revelation” is written specially for Christians living as citizens in a superpower. Thegospel of Jesus in “Revelation” is more political than anyone imagines, and in a way no one guesses. John of Patmos‘s Revelation is intended somewhat to comfort but  mostly to warn the Christians who were too cozy with the Roman Empire…..don’t get comfortable with Empire! Remember it’s a beast!  “Revelation” is a prophetic interpretation of those tumultuous and significant happenings that Jesus, not Julius Cesar or any President is the world’s true emperor and Savior.  “Revelation” is a creative picture of the clash between the beastly empire of Rome and the peaceable reign of the Lamb of God. It shows the world finally conquered by a little Lamb they killed who lives again. “Revelation” isn’t about the violent end of the world…
