    Do parts of Revelation repeat itself? Does the cycle end soon?

    Lou Newton, former Steel Mill Crane Designer and Physics Teacher

    The Book tells the same story three times from three different perspectives to three different groups.

    1st notice the title of the book is not The Book of Revelations - it is “The Revelation”. It is not about future events, but it is about the Revelation of Jesus to the world. It is the The revelation of Jesus Christ, not The revelation from Jesus Christ. The NIV used to use the word of and now put the word from in its place.

    It is not about the future, but it takes place in the past, present and future. Rev1:4 Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come. It is a summary of the whole Bible. The Revelation of Jesus starts in Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

    Psalm 19

    For the director of music. A psalm of David.

    1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
    the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
    2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
    night after night they reveal knowledge.
    3 They have no speech, they use no words;
    no sound is heard from them.
    4 Yet their voice[b] goes out into all the earth,
    their words to the ends of the world.
    In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
    5 It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
    like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
    6 It rises at one end of the heavens
    and makes its circuit to the other;
    nothing is deprived of its warmth.

    Romans 1

    . 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

    Anyone who calls the Book, The Book of Revelations and thinks it is about the future, does not understand the first thing about the book.

    The first story is starts in Chapter 4. It is told by John as he looks from heaven down upon all the inhabitants of the earth. Notice verse 8:

    “‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,’ who was, and is, and is to come.”

    In Chapter 8:6 the perspective changes and instead of looking from heaven, it is looking from the earth to what is taking place on the earth.

    The story changes again in Chapter 12. the perspective is seen from earth to what happens to the Body Of Christ. This ends with Chapter 14.

    The last perspective is from heaven to the events that happen to the false church, or Babylon The Great. This takes place starting with Chapter 15 to the end of Chapter 18.

    Then starting with Chapter 19 is tells in detail about the coming of our dear Lord Jesus.

    12 “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.

    14 “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. 15 Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.

    16 “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you[a] this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.”

    17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.

    18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll. 19 And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll.

    20 He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.”

    Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.

    I have been asked for decades about the tribulation and the mark of the beast. Is this it or is that it. I have always said Jesus told us not to worry about the future but to keep our eyes on Him. The world events of today and the fact that almost all nations are taking part in them makes me think this is the very first time I
