Revelation 1:19 “Write the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which will take place after this.
Revelation is divided into 3 sections. The first: write the things you have seen. The glorified Christ. Chapter 1. The second section: the things that are. This is the church age. The things of the church. Chapters 2 & 3. The third and final section of this book: the things which will take place after this. After what? After the church is gone, taken, raptured from the earth. Chapters 4 - 22. The church is caught up to heaven in chapters 4 & 5, then the wrath of God will be poured out upon the earth in chapters 6 - 19. Gods word is very detailed and the key to unlocking the mysteries and symbols of this book is the rest of the bible. God loves to reveal His truths to us. These are mysteries to the world yet God reveals them to us clearly.
