Many Christians are reluctant to read the Book of Revelation because they are intimidated by the symbolic language and unfamiliar with Hebrew culture. Yet those in the congregation who have ears to hear (not only listen to the message but take it to heart), are promised a special blessing.
Too often the Western church views the Scripture from a Greek Mind-set and within the culture and context of a Hellenized society and pagan Roman solar calendar. They hold to a linear view of history and have compartmentalized thinking -- segmenting ideas by defining them and placing them neatly into a box. Certainly this type of reasoning has been a stumbling block to the proper understanding of the Book of Revelation.
On the other hand, the prophets and writers of the Gospels and New Testament epistles gave forth the Scriptures under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit within the culture and context of a life lived as prescribed in the Torah and according to the lunar Hebrew calendar. The Hebrew view of history is cyclical and the Hebrew Mind-set is of whole-living. The distinction between the two mind-sets arises from the difference between doing and knowing. The Hebrew is concerned with practice, the Greek with knowledge. Right conduct is the ultimate concern of the Hebrew, right thinking that of the Greek.
In order to best interpret the meaning of the visions and the symbolic language of the Book of Revelation, it is not only essential to have both a good working knowledge of the rest of the Bible and possess an understanding of the culture and customs of biblical times but also to view the scriptures from a Hebraic-Mind set. The end time chronology of the Book of Revelation is not a strict linear account but gives an overview of events followed by specifics that disclose the future of the Jew, the Gentile and the body of Messiah through visions that spiral and recapitulate events in increasing intensity.
