This will not be your normal Revelation study.
No matter your experience with Revelation -- whether you believe you know what all the numbers represent or you’ve never flipped the pages -- I believe God wants to speak to you today, and tomorrow, and the next day through this unique and oft-misunderstood (and misused) book. Afterall, this is the book that closes it all up; not just the collection of scriptures, but the story of God and his creation. In light of that, it might be worth exploring.
The hope for this resource is that it makes that exploration accessible for you, whoever you are, and makes what God is communicating accessible, whatever you believe.
This will not be your normal Revelation study: this will not dive into the historical representations of the imagery, or expertly decipher the prophecies. The goal of this is not to tell you what Revelation means; it is to explore what it could mean for you.
This is designed to get you through the 22 Chapters of Revelation in 30 days. There is a Sabbath rhythm to it: you’ll spend 6 days hitting a chapter a day, and then a rest opportunity on the 7th. There are four additional days focusing on Revelation outside of the chapters, bookending the resource.
In addition to a reflection on the reading, each day invites you to a “Way to Engage”, where you can take the reading off the page and into your day. This is an easy way to allow the Word to be “living and active”, rather than an academic exercise relegated to our heads.
The idea is that this can be a simple step to engage something that seems complicated or out-of-reach -- Revelation, God, the meaning of life -- so that the first step makes the second a little easier. Take the steps you can, and trust God’s love and grace along the way.
