Why You Should Pay Careful Attention to the Book of Revelation

In the book of Revelation, the Lord Jesus gives John a vision of heaven. It’s a vision of comfort and encouragement for everyone who is burdened by the sufferings of this life.

I guarantee you won’t be bored in heaven. You won’t be floating on the clouds, strumming a harp for eternity. Heaven will be filled with all the excitement and love you could ever want.

But because heaven can give us so much hope, Satan is fighting hard against it. Satan was thrown out of heaven; he will never be allowed back in. So he’ll do everything he can to kill that hope within us.

You can see Satan’s strategy playing out in our country today:

In February 2015, Salon posted an article called “Ten Reasons the Christian Heaven Would Actually be Hell.” The writer explains, wrongly, how boring and bland heaven will be.

Even in our churches today, there is very little preaching on heaven. Most of it is focused on the problems and blessings of this life, and how to get the most out of it.

How different are those priorities from the priorities of God’s Word? The Bible mentions heaven more than 500 times. The book of Revelation mentions Heaven more than 50 times.

If you think heaven will be a miserable and boring experience, I want you to know that Satan has sold you a bill of goods.

In Revelation, God graciously opens a door into heaven, and we begin to see heaven in all its glory. John writes:

“After this I looked. And there was an open door in heaven. The first voice I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, ‘Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.’ Immediately I was in the Spirit. And there was a throne set in heaven with One sitting on the throne!” (Rev. 4:1-2).

John describes his first glimpse of Heaven—a throne with Someone seated on it. The throne symbolizes the power and authority of our God. He is the Creator and Ruler of this vast universe.

But most importantly, He should be the Ruler of our hearts. If we will step down from the throne of our hearts and put Christ there instead, He will come into our lives with strength and might.

John continues:

“And He who sat there appeared like a jasper and a sardius stone. There was a rainbow around the throne, appearing like an emerald. Twenty-four thrones were around the throne. And I saw twenty-four elders sitting on the thrones, clothed in white garments. They had crowns of gold on their heads” (Rev. 4:3-4).

John sees Jesus, our great High Priest, as having the appearance of gemstones—jasper and ruby.
