False Ideas (2) Revelation

The common view is that the the book of Revelation is a description of the events leading up to the second coming. This is a serious mistake. The book is primarily about the calling of the Jews, explaining how this relates to the judgments of God and the coming of the Kingdom. This can be seen from the prologue of the book, which summarises the events to be described.

The book of Revelation covers the whole of the church age, but it concentrates specifically on the time when the Jews will be converted, and the kingdom of God established. It has very little about the second coming of Jesus. Once this is understand, our interpretation of this book will change dramatically.
