Revelation is a book of judgment and blessing. It begins with the judgment of those who compose the house of God today—the professing Church (1 Peter 4:17). Then after the true Church is called away to heaven at the Rapture, it gives us details concerning the judgment of those left on earth in Christendom, Israel, and the Gentile nations. It closes with blessing in heaven and earth, and all things therein being ordered according to the mind of God, and Christ having His rightful place over it all (Ezek. 21:27).
The book has three main divisions as indicated by the Lord’s words in chapter 1:19. They are:
1) “The things which thou hast seen”— Chapter 1.
2) “The things which are”— Chapters 2-3.
3) “The things which shall be hereafter”— Chapters 4-22.
