Despite our difficulties with the 17th chapter of Revelation, I am hopeful that we will emerge from this chapter with an improved grasp of some of the details and with the momentum intact with respect to the big picture. The book says that there was a war in heaven. Will the war ever end? Where and how does it end? Why doesn’t it end sooner? Our book, of course, believes that the war will end even though it makes the journey seem long and tortuous. We should have no doubt, however, that the purpose of the book is to enable us to complete journey.
