Is reading the book of Revelation a waste of time?

Quick Quote – Source – Jeff Hilles

A Biblical Christian worldview perspective – So many preachers and Christians in general approach the last book in the Bible with a range of negative emotions; from fear of what is understandable to frustration of the obscure and illusionary. Further, since God did not choose to let even His Son know the day or hour of its inception (Matt. 24:36), why it it worth our time to study?

The simplest answer comes from opening lines within book itself, “Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written in it, for the time is near” (Revelation 1:3).

John MacArthur further states, “This is the only biblical book that comes with a blessing for the one who listens to it being read and explained and then responds in obedience”.

As with the Bible, in its entirety, the book of Revelation holds prophetic evidence of its own supernatural origins and offers a roadmap on both who and how the war between good and evil concludes. Short of salvation, what could be more important than that?
