Truth fears no investigation, on the contrary, it welcomes it.

The Book of Revelationʼs central theme is Christ, the Son of God, who has forever united Himself with humanity. The books, Daniel and the Revelation describe events which are leading to the vindication of God, showing that He is worthy of our love and worship throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity, and that Godʼs government is the only way to universal happiness. Daniel and Revelation also unmask the worldly power(s) at war against God and his commandment keeping people (Rev 12:17) It is our hope that you will find Him in whom is salvation and everlasting joy - Jesus Christ, the Son of God and the Son of man. Grace and peace be with you.


The sanctuary figures prominently in the book of Daniel and an understanding of the sanctuary and its services is necessary to understand things such as the “cleansing of the sanctuary” (Daniel 8:14).
Revelation is structured around the sanctuary and even the sanctuary services. By understanding the sanctuary and itʼs services one can better understand the Revelation and the gospel itself. 

The mirror-like arrangement of the book of Revelation gives us a time frame for each of the visions.

Those parts in the first section, except the 7th church, 7th seal & 7th trumpet, have been fulfilled in the past. Those in the second section are still to be fulfilled in the future.


The first section ends when Christ ceases His ministry in heaven. The second section begins when Christʼs ministry has ended. The 7th church, 7th seal, and 7th trumpet extend beyond the close of Christʼs ministry, reaching up to His return.


The pattern does not follow the chapter breaks, but the chapter breaks were not inspired. They were added centuries after the Bible was written.

Symbols are used for a variety of reasons:

1. Preserve the book. If the enemies of truth had been described in plain language they may have destroyed the Bible.

2. To preserve those who share the truth. Had it been in plain language the enemies of truth would have tried to silence Godʼs messengers.

3. The symbols make it memorable.

4. The symbols regulate the flow of truth. Figuring it out takes time!

5. Using symbols is an effective means of teaching.

6. The symbols awaken inquiry.


  • Every word must have its proper bearing. (Matt 5:18).

  • All scripture is necessary, and may be understood. (2Tim 3:15-17).

  • Nothing revealed in the scripture can

  • or will be hid from those who ask in faith, nothing wavering. (Deut 29:29; Matt 21:22; 10:26,27; Phil 3:15; John 14:13-14; 15:7; James 1:5,6; 1John 5:14-15).

  • To understand doctrine, bring all the scriptures together on the subject you wish to know. If you can form your theory without a contradiction, you cannot be in error. (Isa 28:9-13; 35:8; Prov 19:27; Luke 24:27,44-45; Rom 16:26; 2Pet 1:19- 20).

  • Scripture must be its own expositor. (Ps 19:7-11; Ps 119:97-105; 1Cor 2:12-16).

  • God has revealed things to come by visions, in symbols and parables. The same things are often revealed again and again, by different visions, symbols, etc. If you wish to understand them, you must combine them all in one. (Hos 12:10; Hab 2:2; Acts 2:17; 10:9-16; 1Cor 10:6; Heb 9:9,24; Ps 78:2; Matt 13:13,34; Gen 41:1-32; Dan 2, 7, 8).

  • Parables are used as comparisons to illustrate subjects, and must be explained in the same way as symbols. (Mark 4:13).

  • Symbols sometimes have two or more meanings. eg. a day may be an indefinite period or a definite period. The correct interpretation in each case will harmonize with the Bible and make good sense. (Ecc 7:14; Eze 4:6).

  • If something makes good sense as it stands then it must be understood literally, if not, symbolically. (Rev 12:1-2; 17:3-7).

  • To learn the true meaning of a symbol, trace the symbol through the Bible, and where you find it explained, put that meaning on your symbol. If it makes good sense you need look no further, if not, look again.

  • If you find every word of the prophecy (after the symbols are understood) is literally fulfilled, then you may know that your history is the true event. But if one word lacks a fulfilment, then you must look for another event, or wait its future development. For God takes care that history and prophecy agree, so that the true believing children of God may never be ashamed. (1Pet 2:6; Rev 17:17; Acts 3:18).

  • The most important rule of all is, that you must have faith and be willing to give up anything to follow Godʼs Word (John 7:17). If anything should hinder us believing any part of Godʼs word, it would show our faith to be vain. We must also believe that God takes care of the translation of His word so that all who sincerely trust in Him may put implicit confidence in his word, though they may not understand Hebrew or Greek.



The Bible teaches one method of interpretation - Line upon line, precept upon precept (Isaiah 28:10). We must compare one passage with another (1Cor 2:13) allowing one text to explain the meaning of another.

(1) This method is the only way to avoid private interpretation (2Pet 1:20).
(2) It does not require special training or knowledge so its something anyone can do.

(3) It saves people from dependence on men (scholars, ministers, pastors, priests, popes).
(4) It leads to a comprehensive reading of the Bible which is a blessing.

(5) It does not rely on definitions of words & allows Scripture to define its own meanings.

(6) Once the symbols are decoded one must then look to history for fulfilled prophecy.
