The Apocalypse VFX series of images attempt to represent end time visions from the Book of Revelation. However only God knows how events described in the book of Revelation, or Apocalypse, truly appear. The book of Revelation describes end time prophecy including the tribulation, Armageddon, new heaven and new earth. Many heavenly scenes and creatures seem dreamlike or surrealistic.
About the Graphics
Each image was prepared with animation at BibleWithGames.com. See the Animated Apocalypse.
Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks; (Revelation 2:1 KJV Bible).
The animated flame, with candle, were prepared with 3ds Max and Adobe After Effects. Video of a burning flame was mapped to a flat plane above the candle, in 3ds Max. A projector light creates the flickering light and shadow on the candle. An elliptical mask and music were added with After Effects.
And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals (Revelation 5:1).
The scroll was modeled after photographs of scrolls from ancient Jewish Synagogues.
The Jewish Scriptures were written on scrolls rather than books.
Printing in books with a press, such as the Gutenberg press,
didn't become common until somewhere between 1480 and 1500.
The book of Revelation was written around the late first century AD.
book, of Revelation chapter 5, was a scroll.
Seals were often placed on the inside of the scroll. Break an internal seal to unroll a section of the scroll. Break the next seal to unroll and read the next section of the scroll. The seven seals on the scroll of Revelation represent sequentially revealing God's end time events from His book.
Seven Seals, Trumpets and Bowls
The scroll, described toward the start of the book of Revelation, begins the account of end time visions. The scroll includes seven seals. Breaking each seal initiates a new event. When the seventh seal breaks, seven trumpets appear. Each trumpet announces a new event. The seventh trumpet reveals seven bowls. Each bowl represents a new event.
