NT THEO 220-02 Revelation 1; 4-7; 12; 14; 17; 21 The book of Revelations is very poetic but not easy to understand upon first glance. My favorite part would probably be the section that talks about the breaking of the seven seals. I could tell that the first four seals concerned the emergence of horsemen, each representing something unique. The first horseman obviously stood for conquest, the second war, I couldn’t tell what the third one was suppose to be, and the final one was death. From what I gathered while reading the rest, these four characters make way for the apocalypse. Shorty after their arrival, the final three seals are broken and the earth beings to change. There are earthquakes, the sun blacks out, stars fall from the sky, mountains move, and everyone hides from the wrath that is to come. This is a rather terrifying image of the future, and I hope I am long gone before

Unformatted text preview: it happens. Better yet, I hope it is just an over-dramatization of what is to come, so that no one may have to experience it. I do think the Second Coming will occur, just not in this fashion. I believe the images in this book are made to heighten the readers’ awareness and need for preparedness. I noticed that a lot of numbers are used throughout this book, but the most prominent one is the number seven. There’s the greeting to the seven churches, a man holding seven stars and seven lamp stands, seven spirits of God, seven seals, seven horns, seven angels, seven plagues, seven bowls, and seven trumpets. What is the relevance of the number seven? Is it all just because the Earth was created in seven days, therefore seven equates to completeness? It just seems like a lot for that one event to have such an impact on so many other little things in the Bible....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
