    Dear Claudia:  Of what real value has the book of Revelation been to those few, chosen elect during the past 2000 years, if all these Scriptures and prophesies apply only to some last generation, and have nothing to do with the billions that lived between the apostles and this last generation?  The book of Revelation is the Revelation of JESUS CHRIST of Whom it is said ten times in Revelation that He is not only the First, but the Last---the One Who IS, WAS, and WILL BE.  How do those TEN statements apply if they refer to just one person in one generation at the end of this age?  If you keep looking for the BEAST [one man] OUT THERE somewhere, you will not only never see him, but you will never see the real "BEAST WITHIN."
    God be with you,
    Ray
