Apocalyptic literature is often viewed as hard for people. We don’t think they can get their minds around it and we convince ourselves that there are just too many strange things going on that don’t make sense. We need to dig deep and start to appreciate the imagery. Then we will find that this literature has an incredible capacity to bring hope in the triumph of Jesus Christ.
