The word “revelation” comes from the Greek word “apokalupsin”, hence “the Apocalypse”. Revelation means “to unveil,
to uncover”, so the book removes the cover from things we could not have known.
Since the descriptions written down in the revelation are revealing God’s
thoughts to us, we cannot treat Revelation as something hidden. God did not hide
things in the book that only the brightest and best of scholars can find. He
uncovered and unveiled the things that were hidden so that, now, everyone can
see them. Conclusion: Do not look for hidden meanings that only the best
initiated are able to find. Meditate on the words God gave us to uncover what
has been in his heart and mind from before time even began.
