Most people and even many Christians know very little about the book of Revelation: they either feel it is too hard to understand or that it will make them fearful of the future. But that is not what the Bible says; on the contrary it says: Blessed is he that reads, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.” (Rev.1:3) We are then blessed, not frightened, when we read and study the book of Revelation! With the world being in such a mess with so many international problems, wars, terrorism, violence, weird viruses, climate changes, financial crises etc., many sense that a storm is brewing and they are more than ever looking for answers. “…and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men's hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth…” (Lk.21:26)

I started this project almost two decades ago and first used this series of classes with my own teenagers and then eventually translated them into Spanish for our weekly Bible classes in Mexico. My goal was to shed more light into this remarkable book of Revelation and the idea from the beginning was to go through the whole book, chapter by chapter, verse by verse, and search, find and choose Bible cross references, fitting commentaries, pictures and charts that would catch the imagination of the reader, keep his interest as well as make it easier to grasp and visualize God’s mysterious revelations.

Although some of the comments are mine as well as the creation of some of the timeline charts, I also used a number of resources which are listed at the end of this prologue. Each verse or group of verses is either introduced or followed by commentaries from excerpts of these authors and books. The quotations were sometimes copied word for word but most often, they were rephrased and edited to fit each verse, as well as to keep the classes compacted. I have kept on updating and adding new clarifications every so often.

To Bible Teachers:

I like to call these classes, “Ready-made and Ready-to-go”, meaning you can use them and give them right away--the work is already done for you. They do not cover every detail, as a whole book could be written for each chapter, but you could use them as a good base to start with. Depending of the need of your students and, as you are reading with them and giving the classes, you can add your own comments as the Lord leads. Although most classes are made so it could be given in one meeting, it’s important to remember that most people have never studied End Time Bible prophecies and it is often a lot to absorb and digest in one sitting alone; so the classes will often need to be given through more than one session.

Many parts of End Time prophecies are pretty clear and easy to understand, while some are not. These classes were compiled in order to give people a general idea of the End Time…plus a bit more. Of course, depending on your situation, it will be up to you to decide how deeply you will go in your studies with those you teach. Something else to keep in mind is that it is always wise to avoid coming across too dogmatically or seeing everything as either “black or white", and to instead stick with the plainest and simplest understanding of the text as possible. For some of John’s descriptions are to be taken literally and other descriptions are meant to be taken symbolically, and so I have tried to show the difference in these classes. Nevertheless, there are still many things in the book of Revelation that will continue to be mysterious and topics of speculation. But we can be sure that as future events develop, Jesus will help us to understand more. We have been given so much about this subject and since the times are so turbulent and the world is changing so fast, we have the responsibility to share the knowledge of these prophecies with others now! Now is the time! May God bless you as you shared His Word.
