Today in Revelation: The Unveiling of Books and Hearts

Today in Revelation: The word “revelation” means “to uncover; to unveil”. Immediately, we know that a journey through this book is not going to be about us trying to uncover things ourselves. It is going to be a journey of viewing what God himself has already uncovered. We will not be like archeologists digging in the ground to try uncovering hidden relics that no one else has been lucky enough to find. We will be like the Museum owner’s children with a free pass to explore the things our Father has already uncovered and put on display for all his family to see. Not only is the book of Revelation what is “unveiled”, but Paul says that the hearts and minds of God’s children have also been unveiled (II Cor 3:12-18). The “veil remains unlifted” for those who are outside of Christ, but “through Christ” it is “taken away” (vs 14). And, Paul clarifies, “when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed” (vs 15). So, our journey through the unveiled book of Revelation should be like this: “And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit” (vs 18).
