Bible Term: Apocalypse

Apocalypse can generically refer to any prediction or prophecy about the future destruction of the world, that is, the end times. In a general sense, an apocalypse can refer to any prophecy or revelation. Two books in the Bible align with this perspective and are called Apocalyptic books. They are Daniel and Revelation.

For a follower of Jesus (a Christian) there is hope amid this destruction because of a future anticipation of eternity in heaven.
