Read in Revelation

(parody of "He's a Rebel" by the Crystals)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: I never parodied a "girl group" song before, and I wanted at least one in my "catalog." The original of this one was probably among the best of the type. I just kept turning the title around in my head until it sounded like something Biblical, and that suggested both the title and the subject.


See how Satan's filled with conceit.
Did you know he'll suffer defeat?
How he'll tell the biggest lie by speaking through the Antichrist.
You know why?

"Take the scroll, O Lamb," angels bowed.
Heaven worships with praises loud.
My Savior will be the One to rule o'er kings, for "it is done."
Are you understanding that? I say,

(chorus)
Read in Revelation, ending's gonna be very good.
Read in Revelation, ending ought to be understood.
And just because it wasn't true yet, when the other Word was,
That's no reason why it was not foretold above.
It is always good to be wise in eschatology,
So read in Revelation so you'll know
Things of Revelation, oh so close to be!

(sax solo)

Some who don't like what it say
Try to hide in hills and caves.
Lord is shining bright as He rides on that day!

(chorus)
Read in Revelation, enemies will be all subdued.
Read in Revelation, Heaven and the earth, all renewed.
And just because God wasn't through when the Messiah rose up,
To be pleasing, you'll seek His face and share His love!
Read it all, it's good to see all the ways of prophecy.
So read in Revelation so you'll know
Things of Revelation, oh so close to be!
