Book of Revelation

REVELATION

• Apocalypses – Disclosure of that
which is previously hidden

• Disclosure of the Glories of Christ
Special Suggestion for Studying This Book
Golden rule of Interpretationà “When the plain sense of the
scripture makes common sense , seek no other sense;
therefore ,take every word at its primary ordinary usual literary meaning
unless the facts of the immediate text studied in the light of related
passages and axiomatic and fundamental truths clearly indicate
otherwise”…Dr David L Cooper
