Imagine reading Revelation for the first time. What are your first impressions? Does it frighten you? What are the dominant images remembered? The four riders of the apocalypse? The dragon? The beast? 666? Many never go back and read this wonderful piece of literature for fear of having to relive the traumatic experience. Questions remain and they live out their existence under the impression that Revelation is a book of gloom and doom, a frightening story about the end of times. Yet this is far from the truth! Given by God and written down by a man called John some two thousand years ago, Revelation is a symbolic narrative transcending the ages, with meaning beyond our wildest dreams. It is a book of hope for all who trust in the promises of the One seated upon the throne and the Lamb. It is a vision asking us to place our imaginations into overdrive so that we may begin to understand our past, present, and future. It is a story giving us options and showing us the outcome of our choices. It is a heavenly drama asking one simple question, Has Your Robe Been Washed?
