  CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Revelation
Revelation may be defined as the communication of some truth by God to a rational creature through means which are beyond the ordinary course of nature.
Revelation does not cease to be such if God's message is delivered to us by a prophet, who alone is the recipient of the immediate communication.
revelation of truths of the natural law is certainly not inconsistent with God's wisdom.

  Book of Revelation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Revelation is considered one of the most controversial and difficult books of the Bible, with many diverse interpretations of the meanings of the various names and events in the account.
Revelation is divided into seven chapters, with the number seven also appearing frequently as a metaphor within the Book of Revelation.
Politically, historicist interpretations apply the symbols of Revelation to the gradual division and collapse of the Roman Empire, the emergence of a divided Europe in the West and a Muslim empire in the East, and the collapse of the Eastern Empire while Europe attempts to reunite and recreate the Roman Empire.

 Revelation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Revelation is an uncovering or disclosure via communication from the divine of something that has been partially or wholly hidden or unknown.
Revelation is traditionally viewed as that which God, a god, or other supernatural being such as an angel makes known about divine will, principles, laws and doctrines, and imparts understanding of the same to mankind.
But if revelation is to exalt and upstep the religions of evolution, then must such divine visitations portray teachings which are not too far removed from the thought and reactions of the age in which they are presented.

 frontline: apocalypse!: book of revelation: understanding the book of revelation
The traditional view of Revelation, and of apocalyptic literature in general, is that it grew out of circumstances of persecution.
Revelation does this by incorporating the Roman sense of world order into his own alternative sense of a "new world order" governed by God, through Christ as the triumphant emperor of heaven and earth.
All the florid images of Revelation 4-22 were instead considered to be predictions of future events that would come to pass in literal terms as the return of Christ and the end approached.

 Revelation - Iridis Encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: )
In monotheistic religions, revelation is the process in which God makes himself, his will, and/or other information known to mankind.
The neo-Aristotelian philosophers of the medieval era held that revelation was the discovery of absolute truths about God, man, and man's place in God's universe, as discovered through logical philosophical inquiry.
This states that revelation from God is available to all those who seek it - provided they perform a certain level of sacrifices in the correct direction - as opposed to being imparted on certain special individuals.

Revelation provides guidance that can lead the faithful to eternal salvation in the celestial kingdom."

 The Beast of Revelation   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Furthermore, in Revelation 1:3 we read: "Blessed [is] he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein." The members of the churches to whom Revelation was addressed are expected to read, understand, and keep the directives in Revelation.
Revelation 17:10 specifically notes that the seven heads represent "seven kings." Thus, the Beast is generically portrayed as a kingdom.
In Revelation 17:11 the interpretive angel tells John and his readers "the beast which was and is not, is himself also an eighth, and is one of the seven." This feature is recognized by most commentators of various schools of interpretation, including even dispensationalists.

Sometimes such encouragement is given in the form of discourse in which the revelation of God’s sovereignty is disclosed; at other times, as in the book of Daniel, it takes the form of a story or legend concerning the ancient worthy in whose name the book is written.
the revelation often comes in dreams or visions, and usually needs to be interpreted with the help of an angel; it is usually intended to provide hope and encouragement for people in the midst of severe trials and tribulations.

 frontline: apocalypse!: apocalypticism explained: the book of revelation
You encounter these fantastic figures who play some role in the drama of the end, whether it be in chapters 4 and 5, this wonderful vision of God sitting on a throne in the heavens with seven seals, or in the ensuing chapters, what happens when each of those seals is open.
The Revelation of John, the Apocalypse, also must be looked at from the perspective that it's not the only such piece of apocalyptic literature that we have.
On the one hand the Book of Revelation I think needs to be taken seriously as grappling with history and with actual events, but a fundamentalist or dispensationalist reading tends to impose a schemer on the text that isn't there.

 Interpreting The Book of Revelation
While there is only one OT apocalyptic book (Daniel) and one NT book that demonstrates some features of this type (Revelation), it was a common form of writing in the two centuries before and after the birth of Christ.
While the book of Revelation is obviously modeled in some ways on the classic form of apocalyptic writings, the message of the book implies something far different than "traditional" apocalyptic writings.
The emphasis is on a holistic reading of the book to see the dual message of promise and hope for an oppressed people, as well as the final failure of any human institution that takes the place of God in the world.

The Scriptures are not merely the "record" of revelation; they are the revelation itself in a written form, in order to the accurate preservation and propagation of the truth.
Revelation is the supernatural communication of truth to the mind; inspiration (q.v.) secures to the teacher or writer infallibility in communicating that truth to others.

 Revelation: The Revelation of St John The Divine
The end we are told to endure unto, and to be saved(only), is perhaps also a test of endurance in Revelation, to wade through Revelation of John prophecy; Which is this sort first and last, of seven spirits, unto the end thereof.
Revelation (Apokalupsis) being about and from "seven spirits" clearly suggests the Revelation of John is about Uncovering the worse-end state of John, his latter end being a worse case scenario to a-void, not hope it will happen.
In conclusion, I find ample and satisfactory evidence for the date of Revelation to be the early date of 65-68 AD for the Pauline writing of "The Revelation of St John The Divine" which also mentions therein the first verse a second revelation: "The Revelation of Jesus Christ", which is found in Pauline epistles.

 The Apocalypse of John
However, that he is able to identify himself, and as a prophet (in sharp contrast to the pseudonymity and practice of apocalyptic writers in general), speaks volumes for the vitality, power, and self-confidence of New Testament Christianity.
The book of Revelation as a whole has the external form of a letter in that it begins with an opening salutation (1:4-6) and closes with a benediction (22:21).
The contrast in literary form between the direct address of the letters and the symbolic drama of the remainder of the book is startling, but no more so than the fact that an apocalyptic writer identifies himself and calls his work a prophecy.
