The Book of Revelation (formal title The Revelation of St. John the Divine, also called The Revelation to John, The Apocalypse of John, or simply Revelation) is the final book of the Christian Bible (The New Testament). It records a series visions received by the apostle John while he was imprisoned on the island of Patmos. The visions describe the end times and the second coming of Jesus Christ. (Preterists disagree, believing the book describing events fulfilled at other points in history.)

Revelation also describes the final rebellion of Satan (at Armageddon), the final defeat of Satan by God, and the return of peace to the world.

Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

Revelation first describes the arrival of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Pestilence, War, Famine, and Death. However, the Bible itself only directly one horseman, "death".

Mark of the Beast

Revelation describes a time in which the a mark consisting of the Number of the Beast will be required on all people in order to buy or sell.
