The book of Revelation, the great Apocalypse of our Lord, is a record of what Jesus Christ showed His servant John, a record of "what must soon take place." In a series of ever-expanding visions Saint John the Divine is given to see the final and complete victory of Jesus Christ and His church. Though in the ages to come the powers of hell will appear to prevail through persecutions, famines, imprisonment, death, and destruction, Jesus Christ will nonetheless emerge in complete triumph on the Day of days as King of kings and Lord of lords.
