I need your help! To unlock the mysteries of the book of Revelation requires the interpretation of symbols. We know this by one of the very first words of the book.
1The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:
The word signified means in signs or symbols. The book was sent and given in symbols to John to give to us. There are two things we should be aware of here. First is that all symbols are found within the Bible itself. No need to search the world for the understanding of these symbols. Second if they are in the book, it means one needs to be a student of the Bible. I have come to have greater appreciation for the prophetic books of the bible as a result of this understanding. However I have not come close to unlocking all the mysteries of these symbols, so please join in the search to find the truth.
