Editor's Notes

  1. The core issue: How do we remain faithful in a faithless culture?
  2. Rival Eschatologies:John is taken behind the veil to see:Who’s really on the throne? Rome? NOPE!God is bringing the world to an end, and the Church is called to bear witness to it!
  3. The Dragon is angry because he’s been cast down. He’s been defeated and time is short. The only way he can hurt God is to hurt God’s children. And the only way to hurt us is to get us to compromise, to abandon Jesus. How will he do that?The Dragon empowers Empire (in the form of a monstrous beast) who uses force, coercion and intimidation to convince the world to follow it. Some within the Church advocate compromise, and so we see the two armies: God, the Lamb and the Church against the Dragon, the Beast and the Land Beast.
