Welcome to Unlocking Revelation!

The message of Revelation is one of hope. Ironically, though, no book of the Bible has generated so much fear and confusion in Christianity today. This is because Revelation is far too often interpreted out of context. Did you ever notice that John’s Gospel begins by introducing the Bridegroom, Jesus, while Revelation ends by unveiling the Bride? Did you ever notice that the story of seven trumpets sounding, a great city falling, and a scarlet whore being rescued occurs in both Joshua and Revelation? In this study, Dr. Warren Gage examines the literary keys to Revelation found in the Gospel of John and in the Book of Joshua. Be encouraged as you learn the glorious destiny that awaits the Church as the bridal companion of the Son of God. Thanks for being a part of our study!
