What Kind of Revelation?

“But as for you, Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase.” — Daniel 12:4

And he said to me, “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is near. — Revelation 22:10

In most English translations of the Bible the very last book is named “Revelation” based on the opening verse, “The Revelation of Jesus Christ”. (Rev. 1:1) The underlying Greek word is “apokalupsis” might be more accurately rendered “unveiling” because in the original language it does not merely include something that is shown or revealed, but includes the interpretation as to what it means. As applied overall, an unveiling takes place in the character of a sheer curtain going up so that what was at one time difficult to make out from a distance becomes clearer and clearer the closer we get. What the Prophet Daniel was originally told to “seal up…until the end of time”, the Apostle John is told, “Do not seal up…for the time is near”. But even with the briefest of surveys of sermons, books and websites, it doesn’t take long for one to wonder what kind of revelation—that is, unveiling—Christians think is taking place? The instructions to Daniel and John have to do with the canon of Scripture—“seal up the book” and “do not seal up…the prophecy of this book”. Are we pursuing the unveiling of Scripture, or are we claiming a revelation of something not actually originally contained in the pages of God’s Word, or at best, ancillary to it?
