I admit that the last book of the Bible was the most difficult read for me. In fact, I never understood it. Till now. I was a watcher shocked by the Yemeni running a several years back. I was shocked again by the deaths of communities in Syria due to poison gas. I couldn't believe the news, it was as if I was forcing myself to absorb the events as real, and no matter how I deny it, it remains real. So goes the decapitations, the invasions, etcetera, and currently, despots are exchanging verbal assaults, both on their people and other nations. Waahhh. Is the universe unfolding as it should? Chaos seems to be more like it. Nevertheless, I did check on the Sacred Scriptures, and for the first time, understood that these will all come to pass. We are living in the time of Revelation, fires, floods, hails, earthquakes, hurricanes, diseases, deadly weapons, these are all happening.

@nangayo yes, and by that we mean prayers, mortification and helping others. In the battle of good and evil, we must use all our weapons. For every evil that you see, counter it with a prayer, a sacrifice, and an act of love for another person, preferably the poor. We must win. We will win.
Hi. Yes, it might appear at first reading that we're in that the book of Revelation is speaking about. But it might be helpful to read the way it was written to them at that time. Example, Rev. 1:1 begins with the words "The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants—things which must shortly take place." Same is true in 1:3,19; 2:25; 3:11; 22:6, 20 among others. In other words, knowing the context will really help.
