The gospel is the proclamation of jesus christ according to the revelation of the mystery paul was a herald of the gospel, a proclaimer of the gospel of christ, an official reporter of god’s new testament economy also, he was an apostle, one sent by god with a divine commission to set up churches for god, an ambassador from god to the world for the carrying out of his purpose.
The apostle john, who wrote the book of revelation, lived to the see the death, burial and resurrection of jesus christ at the time the revelation 8 vision, jesus had returned to heaven, where he sits at the right hand of god the father. Could you please assure me that the jesus that i meet in revelation matches with the jesus in the gospels he seems harsher i'm not sure whether this person wants me to assure them that the gospel jesus is the revelation jesus or that the revelation jesus is the gospel jesus.

The revelation of jesus christ- the meaning of the word revelation is “revealing, uncovering, unveiling, laying bare, making naked” [gr apokalupsis] it is of something that has been hidden from view, which has now been opened to our understanding, such as a mystery or secret not perceived by the human senses.
