If one has accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, one need not fear the book of Revelation! It is the believers future hope and destiny after Satan and all evil has been judged and destroyed! For the believer it is eternal life in the presence of God, face to face! Eternal joy from pain and suffering and to be with the Lamb of God, Christ forever the one who bled , died and rose again that we too might live and reign with Him! It says that anyone who reads this book will receive a promised blessing Rev.1:3. Genaveve
Because they do not have a clue what it means, or what it is trying to relate. If your Pastor is NOT teaching ALL the bible you need to go elsewhere.. It is relevant to YOU very much so.. Please , please do your own research people... Your soul depends on it.. Look at what the original handwritten transcripts actually say.. Get a Strong`s concordance. Find out what the letter from Dad really does say to YOU.. Don`t depend on some human`s interpretation of God`s letter to YOU.. Read it YOURSELF and go to the handwritten manuscripts to find the truth of what you are being fed.. Satan is in many Churches too. What better place for the deceiver to deceive God`s kids?
God says many will be deceived. You must take your spiritual journey into your OWN hands..

Because they are afraid and some really do not know but the majority believe if they speak and minister of the things which is to come they will lose members. But ministering the truth to people and warning them of what is to come should bring true hearted christians closer to Christ.
The Bible contains many literary genres. Exposition, narrative and biography, parables, poetry, proverbs or wisdom saying, prophecy and apocalyptic. Prophecy and apocalyptic is the most challenging type of literature in the Bible. Revelation falls into this type and deals with cataclysmic events having to do with the end of the world. The language is highly symbolic. In spite of the difficulties, I like studying Revelation like all other books of the Bible. Pay attention to the structure of the book to avoid speculations. Some ministers may not delve into the book of Revelation due to the difficulties in interpretation. My suggestion is that, instead of sermons in the church, we should have more Bibles studies on Revelation without having to worry about time constraint.
Many Ministers do not preach about revelation because they do not understand it!!
Unfortunately there are many preachers out there who skip around the "difficult or challenging" stuff, because they are afraid that if they preach the truth they will be unpopular and the people would leave their church.
What they don't realise is that the book of Revelation is a wonderful book that reveals Jesus Christ in a way the other books of the Bible don't. There are great truths within the book of Revelation. Truths that are important for all Christians to know.
If the ministry is based in Bible Study than the preachers will Teach from each book in the bible. The bible is more about Teaching than it is about Preaching. Ministers with a theology background know this basic concept.
Some people may not fully understand the book of Revelations, but there are many preacher and pastors who do teach from the book.
Because christianity is a man made religion and jesus taught the gospel we have to figure out which denomination or sect we have to belong to due to our own commensense resoning and logic. The books of the gospel is the foundation for jesus; teaching.paul wrote revelation when he was exile at patmos in the caucus mountains thats one reason,
