    Ron, I believe you are right. However, concerning the name of the book The Revelation of Jesus Christ given to St. John to write gives all of us human being the whole story of God's divine plan from chapter 1 through 22. This book of Revelation gives us more than enough knowledge to get to paradise. What a blessing glory be to God in the highest. Amen!
  • A disciple
    God went through great pains, and many, many holy men sacrificed everything, to bring us the whole Bible as we have it today: it must mean that He has A LOT to say to us, when we are able to bear it. I don't think that God wants any of us to not use our brains, and the capacities of moral and intellectual knowledge; that's part of what we are in His image. But some things we must wait for.

    Verse 4 - the seven thunders. A lot of people keep trying to figure out what they said but per verse 7 no one will know until the time. The Prophets knew the basics but John died being the only living person knowing the Complete mystery of God, completed! Do I have this right? What are your thoughts?

    "And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, and cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices." From the coast of Israel the Angel's back is to the north: (Jeremiah 1:14) "Out of the north an evil shall break forth upon all the inhabitants of the land." The Chronicle.

    The little book is knowledge of the future, sweet because all want to know what will happen before it does. Once eaten, read and understood, it makes one sick. The end of days war is bitter because of the massive amount of radiation that travels the globe destroying DNA in all life forms. The war will cause a collapse of the ecology of earth. God warns us in advance in parables and symbolism.
