AWARE of The GODHEAD

9.0 iii Intro:

THIS IS HOW GOD WANTS US

to VIEW REVELATION.

THE BOOK of REVELATION is VISUAL

& ‘CINEMATIC’, in our Words

Exactly HOW GOD Views REVELATION

Revelation is Cinematic. 

… 

Revelation is a book

which is wondrously accessible to our generation

which is oriented to

Visual Images

 …
Ancient cultures were more attuned to listening
and receiving information through the ear-gate.
… 
 Our culture is more oriented
 to receiving information through the eye-gate. 
 
We are accustomed to watching movies 
and seeing the visual images of the television. 
 
Revelation is a very visual book.
 
In Principle #5 of 9 shown later : 
The fabric of the book
consists of moving pictures.
 
 The details that pertain to the picture 

should be interpreted

in harmony with its central thought. 

… 
We should ask two questions:
 

 

First –

what is the entire big picture

BEING ‘SHOWN” ?

 …

Second –

what is the predominant idea

OF THAT ENTIRE BIG PICTURE

Being ‘SHOWN’ ?

 …
Revelation is cinematic. 

THIS IS HOW GOD

WANTS US to VIEW REVELATION.

It as if, THE BOOK of REVELATION

is VISUAL & ‘CINEMATIC’, in our Words.

 …
What is Revealed by God in The Book of Revelation
is revealed ‘like a VISUAL movie’
 through pictures and visual images
 
In each cycle, of the Seven Groups of Chapters
the stage is set,
 the characters take their place
 and the action commences.
 

 We are informed at the outset of

THE BOOK of REVELATION

 that the content of the book is visual. 

 

“The Revelation of Jesus Christ,

 which God Gave Him 

to Show to His bond-servants…”

(Revelation 1:1). 

 

“To show”,

here, means to communicate

 a Divine Revelation

 by
Means of Divinely Inspired Visions.
 
You may have heard of a “Seer”,
 or
“One Who Can See the Spans of TIME”,
 as we all have experienced
‘spans of time (travel)’
while ‘Dreaming’;
 
This Prophetic “Seer”, John,
relates what has been shown to him,
in the DIVINELY INSPIRED
SYMBOLIC WORD PICTURES, 
and “Visions”,
much like we experience in our own Dreams,
also ( with our dreamlife being
without the Divine Inspiration part.)
… 

The Doctrine, or “Teachings”
of Eschatology, or “The ‘LAST’ THINGS”,
are contained in the book of Revelation. 

 
How can we ever hope to understand such
a complex and unusual book like Revelation? 
 
We need to study Revelation 
and be pulled with hope and expectation
by those welcoming words of John: 
 

“Blessed is he who Reads
and those who Hear

the Words of this Prophecy,

 and Heed the things

which are Written in it;
for The Time is Near. 

(Revelation 1:3)
