In this chapter, although highly symbolic as in line with the rest of the book of Revelation, we find reference to the end times.
Disease, war, famine, people suffering violent deaths. It’s just like today, isn’t it? That’s no coincidence though because we are living in the last days (although don’t take ‘days’ literally).
The important question though, is how we can we make it through these horrendous times. The answer is the same as how we make it at any time. We put our trust in Christ.
