There are lots of things going on on The Book of Revelations that you might missed the main focus of this book. The wrath of God, the number 666, bottomless pit, Armageddon etc. are the enough to keep us busy when we read Revelation. Of course, all of that, all the chapters and all verses that compose this book are important. However there are verses that should be highlighted that points us to the goal of the Apostle John in writing this book. The goal of this book is encouraging persecuted believers that God is in control. In my meditation of Revelation and highlighting some verses, its such a blessing that in those passages, I can see the main goal set by the book.

Of course there are lots of lessons you can derive from this book and in any books of the Bible.  I’m highlighting a few of them here and hoping that, as you study this you’ll find more.  Also we should remember that although these are great verses, they are meant to be read in context to get the full meaning and impact. Lastly, have a desire to read God’s Word daily.
