Suggestion for Family Discussion

Read Revelation 6:12–14 and Revelation 16:18–21, and explain that these passages describe things John saw in his vision of the last days. Then explain that although some of the prophecies in the book of Revelation can be frightening, other prophecies in the book of Revelation can give us hope and help us be unafraid during difficult times. Read a few of the passages from the scripture chain in this section to find some of those messages of hope.
