Everyone loves a good Mystery
Are you aware of the discovery of ruins of ancient civilizations that marine archaeologists have uncovered on the ocean floor? Most people in Europe and America know nothing about the discoveries around the world (though Japanese television has aired it for years)…discoveries which show us the ruins of whole cities at the bottom of the ocean. You may be asking, “Why haven’t Americans - and especially American Christians - heard about these amazing discoveries? After all, these are ruins of CITIES! How can you hide a whole city?” There’s a story to that…but we will get to that later. What we really need to do is handle the monumental evidence of the cities themselves…
That’s the exciting news…
Think of it…There are ruins of whole cities at the bottom of the Oceans of the world!
What we are handling may become the greatest series of discoveries in archaeological history…except this time it’s the field of marine archeology. That’s right. It’s NOT some “Christian” individual, church, or research group. The beauty is, it’s the very institutions, people and groups - even nations (such as the atheistic Fidel Castro’s Cuba) - that have promoted or at least agreed with the contrary atheistic view of science! So, we get to “watch and see” what the world…and the churches…will do with many of the following:
• Temples and sacrificial platforms located under the ocean…
• Arches bridging the ruins of man-made stonework lining the bottom of the high seas …
• Walls that run for hundreds of yards along the ocean floor…
• Boulevards, highways, and roads that extend for…well…miles off the coasts of countries around the world…
• Large buildings, once inhabited, testify to a now non-existent and very advanced civilization of yesteryear…
• What are those huge, ‘many-miles-long’ (over 20 miles long, in fact) man-made “mystery” structures in the Atlantic Ocean?
• How many miles long is the urban underwater development off the southern Ryukyus? (Hint: 2-digit answers aren’t even close.)
• …and then there’s that huge, fossilized pine forest on the ocean bottom off Florida….You just won’t believe this…
This is a mystery to many. The ruins at the 1900 foot level on the seabed off the western coast of Cuba have a tale to tell. Given that water seeks its own level, the real answer…must answer for a worldwide Flood. well documented, shows the power and worldwide scope of the Great Flood of Noah.

“Revelation of What”? The Title, Opening the Contents of the Book
Revelation of “What?” is the natural opening question anyone should be asking about this book. Though commentators generally do justice to some version of “This is Scripture and reveals God’s Mind”, they also tend to miss the importance of the Noun involved. All of Scripture, including this book of the Revelation, is Revealed Truth, equally inspired by the Lord.
But… EVERY BOOK OF THE BIBLE HAS A TASK TO ACCOMPLISH…
…every book of the Bible has a different “job to do”. Genesis is a book of “beginnings”. Those who named it understood its function in the body of the Bible. Exodus points to the Physical AND Theological “Leaving” from Egyptian society and worldview. It is designed to demonstrate God’s power in freeing His People through Temporal Redemption.
If ALL of Scripture is “revelatory” why name this one “THE Revelation”? What is this book revealing in so unique a manner, so as to warrant its Title – recognized by the Church as such since its appearance and as cited in the book’s opening words?
Perhaps, an explanation is provided for us in another book of the Bible in which the Mystery is answered theologically. That book is the book of Romans (16: 25-27).
At the end of Romans, the Apostle Paul cites the purpose of the book in other terms than that with which he opened the book. In Romans 1, the purpose of Romans is addressed. The book is designed “…for obedience to the faith among all nations for his name” (the Great Commission!)
The “for His Name” references the previous verses pointing to the “declaration” of the Father concerning His Son’s meritorious work. Thus, from Psalm 2 we find that declaration, God’s decree to the nations, “I will declare the decree. The Lord hath said unto Me, ‘Thou art my Son…Ask of Me and I will give Thee the heathen for Thine Inheritance and the uttermost part of the earth for Thy possession…’” –Psalm 2:7-8.
The Psalm then emphasizes HOW Christ will Rule to bring about His Kingdom’s glory and victory:
Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron. Thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel. Be wise therefore ye kings. Be instructed ye rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear; rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son…(Kiss the feet of the Great Sovereign who rose from the dead, having ultimate Imperium.).
It is obvious that the Psalm is not proclaiming the arbitrary antics of a masochistic Superpower. It is a Psalm that ties together Christ’s earned position as the King with the Judgments designed to bring obedience to the world’s authorities (“Be wise ye kings…”).
The book of Revelation REVEALS the Judgments and Rule of Christ’s “rod of iron.” The Mystery of “WHO REALLY RULES” this planet… and “Why?” is detailed by the series of Judgments given us in the
Revelation of John
Paul confirms the fact that “revelation” and “Mystery” are associated concepts in the Mind of God… as He reaffirms the purpose of the book of Romans as “obedience of the nations” in other words, at the very end of his great Theological tome to the Romans:
Now to him that is empowered to establish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, but now is made manifest, by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith: to God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ forever. Amen. - Romans 16: 25-27
