For anyone struggling to understand John's writings in Revelation, this book provides true, Biblically-based answers. Through detailed insight into the letters John wrote to seven churches of his day, you will learn how to avoid the inherent pitfalls of the "first Adam" mentality to overcome today's trials and tribulations. The more you understand the Book of Revelation, the more you will be disarmed of the fears, intimidations, rhetoric, and flood of information spewing from the dragon's mouth. This overflow of propaganda has kept the human family afraid to even read the Book of Revelation, when, in fact, it is the only book in the Bible that declares a built-in blessing to those who read and understand it.
