No more strawman arguments like this one.
is the completion of the whole revelation of the Bible.
It is the culmination of the whole speaking of God in the Scriptures.
How could anyone imagine that from the first word to the last is not something to be revealed to the world as the other books preceding it ?
Jesus prayed to His Father publicly in John 12:28
as well as a few other places.
Do you think there was nothing in this private conversation that was not for others to hear?
"Father, glorify Your name. Then a voice came out of heaven:
I have both glorified it and will glorify it again. The crowd therefore, which stood by heard it said that there had been thunder; others said, An angel has spoken to Him.
Jesus answered and said, This voice has not come for My sake, but for your sake." (John 12:28-30)
There are many things in the book of Revelation
which are for the whole world. And that even though it was initially sent to seven
of the probably more than seven churches in Asia.
Concerning something which is explicitly told us is not for us to know, is what the seven thunders uttered in chapter 10.
" ... And when He cried out with a loud voice, the seven thunders uttered their own voices.
And when the seven thunders spoke, I was about to write, and I heard a voice out of heaven saying, Seal the things which the seven thunders spoke, and do not write them."
What they said is explicitly told us, that it was none of our business at this time.
