Not a what

Do you know what I think is primary in the book of Revelation? It is like the Old Testament; when the book of Revelation talks about the future it does not tell you the what in your future, but it tells you the who. Who is central in the first chapter of the book of Revelation and then again in the fourth and the fifth chapters after the letter to the churches? It is the exalted Christ. And there He is, central to whatever is in the future.— Lectures in Old Testament Theology, page 203

Indeed! Would that more would focus on the who instead of the how and when!
